  2. US to pledge S$3.9 billion to help poor nations tackle global warming ...

    The United States is giving US$3 billion (S$3.89 billion) to a United Nations fund to help poorer vulnerable countries prepare for a changing climate and develop cleaner energy.

    President Barack Obama will announce the contribution at meeting of world leaders in Australia, the administration said.

    The UN is trying to raise at least US$10 billion for its Green Climate Fund to help developing nations adjust to rising seas, warmer temperatures, and more extreme weather. It also would help the nations come up with energy sources that limit or reduce heat-trapping carbon dioxide emissions from coal, oil and gas.

    The American pledge would be the biggest to date and would double contributions to US$6 billion, according to international environmental groups. France has promised US$1 billion, with Germany pledging nearly as much. Sweden, the Netherlands and Switzerland have all pledged at least US$100 million, while Denmark, Norway, Mexico, Luxembourg, Czech Republic and Indonesia have pledged lesser amounts, according to officials at Oxfam America.

    The South Korea-based fund, which also accepts money from private charities, was set up by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change................http://www.todayonline.com/world/us-pledge-s39-billion-help-poor-nations-tackle-global-warming

      James Clapper, the director of U.S. National Intelligence, Clapper said Friday analysts had not seen any evidence indicating militants belonging to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and Al-Qaeda had forged an alliance in Syria.

      "We don't see that," Clapper said.

    America's top military leader arrived Saturday to Iraq, state television reported, his first visit to the country since a U.S.-led coalition began a campaign of air strikes targeting the extremist Islamic State group.

    According to MacDonald, Putin did not respond positively. He didn't provide further details.

    “I expect to have frank discussion with my colleagues and not to beat about the bush,” Putin said in an interview with the German television ARD.

    The Russian president said that “the decisions made there and the discussions at these venues are not binding and unfortunately are often not implemented, for example the decision to change the configuration of the international monetary system, to enhance the role of developing economies due to their changing position in the world economy as a whole.”

    “For example, we adopted a decision at a G20 summit to enhance the role of developing economies in the IMF. But the US Congress blocked the decision and everything came to a standstill,” he said.

  11. Italian authorities said Saturday that more than 900 people had been rescued at sea in 24 hours, in a blow to hopes that the approach of winter would stem the flow of migrants attempting perilous crossings of the Mediterranean....

    Most of the rescued people were initially aboard boats which had got into distress in open waters in the channel between Libya and Sicily, a narrow but treacherous strait in which thousands have drowned in recent years while trying to reach Europe.

    A total of 477 migrants were delivered to Porto Empedocle on Sicily's southern coast after being picked up by a liquid gas tanker, the Gaz Concord, overnight, and a further 354 were due to be brought ashore by an Italian navy patrol boat at nearby Pozzallo later in the day.

    The coastguard also intercepted a yacht with 80 would-be migrants on board off the port of Crotone on the southeastern "heel" of the Italian mainland.

    The overcrowded leisure vessel had spent six days sailing from Turkey, was travelling under a fake Italian ensign and had children on board, four of whom were hospitalised after disembarking...................http://english.ahram.org.eg/NewsContent/2/9/115579/World/International/Italy-rescues--as-migrant-flow-across-Med-continue.aspx

We are going to live better than Ukraine for which the power of the oligarchs will turn out to be worse and more destructive than any blockade,” Plotnitsky added.

    Come ha detto Obama in una conferenza stampa a Brisbane, il Presidente siriano "ha completamente perso la sua legittimità nella maggior parte del Paese". "Perciò, qualsiasi azione congiunta con gli Stati Uniti insieme a lui contro l’ISIS comporta una maggiore possibilità che i sunniti siriani si uniscano ai militanti e indeboliscano la nostra coalizione (contro l’ISIS)" ha detto il Presidente degli Stati Uniti.

    Putin noted that Russia suspended the flights of its strategic aircraft in 1992 and they remained at their air bases for a long time................http://sputniknews.com/russia/20141117/1014822991.html

  28. NATO expansion since 2001 significantly changed geopolitical situation - Putin...

    The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) experienced two considerable waves of its expansion significantly changing the geopolitical situation, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview with German TV channel ARD.

    “We have witnessed two waves of NATO expansion since 2001,” Putin said. “If I remember correctly, seven countries - Slovenia, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Romania and three Baltic States, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania - joined NATO in 2004. Two more countries joined in 2009. Those were significant geopolitical game changers.

    “Furthermore, the number of military bases is growing,” he said. “Does Russia have military bases around the world? NATO and the United States have military bases scattered all over the globe, including in areas close to our borders, and their number is growing.”

    “Moreover, just recently it was decided to deploy Special Operations Forces, again in close proximity to our borders,” Putin said................http://en.itar-tass.com/russia/760012

    HUBERT SEIPEL (retranslated from Russian): Good afternoon, Mr President.

    You are the only Russian President who has ever given a speech at the Bundestag. This happened in 2001. Your speech was a success. You spoke about relations between Russia and Germany, building Europe in cooperation with Russia, but you also gave a warning. You said that the Cold War ideas had to be eradicated. You also noted that we share the same values, yet we do not trust each other. Why were you being a little pessimistic back then?...........................http://eng.kremlin.ru/news/23253

  48. Turkish submarine confronts Greek coast guard in fishing standoff ...

    A Turkish submarine and a Greek coast guard were engaged in a maritime standoff on Nov. 17, amid a fishing crisis in the Aegean.

    A group of Turkish fishermen told the Doğan News Agency that the Greek coast guard, which left its base on the island of Kos, violated Turkish territorial waters off Bodrum at around noon. Approaching as close as 50 meters, the Greek ship urged the Turkish fishermen to return to the coast for two hours.

    In response, a Turkish submarine from its base in Marmaris surfaced near the hotspot while travelling toward Kuşadası at 2 p.m. The submarine showed the Turkish flag on the surface, after which the coast guard retreated to international waters, before again turning back in the direction of Turkey.

    A number of Turkish naval officers watched the Greek vessel from the deck of the submarine from an even closer distance, the agency said, while releasing photographs of the incident.

    The tension was defused at 3.20 p.m. when Turkish fishermen returned to the coast and the Greek coast guard went back to Kos. The Turkish submarine then continued on its normal route.

  61. Lukaschenko: Westliche Aktivitäten an Grenzen zu Weißrussland und Russland besorgniserregend...

    Der weißrussische Präsident Alexander Lukaschenko hat Besorgnis über westliche Aktivitäten an den Grenzen zu Weißrussland und Russland geäußert.

    „Die Situation an unseren westlichen Grenzen bereitet uns Sorgen“, sagte Lukaschenko am Dienstag in Minsk bei seinem Gespräch mit dem russischen Außenminister Sergej Lawrow.

    „Wir können uns mit den Aktivitäten westlicher Länder an der Westgrenze des (russisch-weißrussischen) Unionsstaates nicht abfinden.“ Lukaschenko schlug vor, eine einheitliche Haltung der beiden Unionsstaaten festzulegen. Deshalb komme seinem heutigen Treffen mit Lawrow eine besondere Bedeutung zu.

    Des Weiteren verwies Lukaschenko auf ein Eskalieren der Lage in der Ukraine. „Wir haben sehr gehofft, dass die Entwicklung nach der ukrainischen Wahl in eine bessere Richtung - die Richtung der Stabilität - geht, was wir nun leider nicht sehen.“

    The Russian agricultural watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor has banned the imports of meat products from Montenegro over suspected attempts to smuggle products from the EU, assistant to the Rosselkhoznadzor head Alexey Alexeyenko said on Tuesday.

    “Illegal re-exports of meat products from European Union countries are the main cause for the ban,” he said. “Meat product deliveries from Montenegro have risen significantly lately, in volumes which the country could not produce by itself,” the assistant to the Rosselkhoznadzor head said.

    Montenegro mainly supplied pork and pork products to Russia. “Montenegro was not a major player on the market of imported meat products. The ban will not do harm to the range of imported products,” he said.......................http://en.itar-tass.com/economy/760285

    Le joyau marin de l'Australie se dégrade dangereusement. Pollution, trafic maritime, projets d'infrastructures menacent le site, que l'Unesco envisage d'inscrire sur la liste du patrimoine mondial en péril.

    C'est un monde multicolore, empreint de sérénité. Un « monde du silence » d'une extraordinaire biodiversité. Des milliers d'espèces différentes s'y côtoient. Plus de 3.000 sortes de mollusques ; 600 coraux différents, dont certains vieux de plus de quatre siècles ; 1.600 espèces de poissons, dont le célèbre poisson-clown ; près de 140 requins et raies divers ou encore 6 races de tortues marines. Un cadeau des dieux aussi vaste que l'Italie, qui longe sur 2.300 kilomètres la côte nord-est de l'Etat australien du Queensland. La Grande Barrière de corail, l'icône absolue de l'Australie, est pourtant en danger. Trente-quatre ans après l'avoir classé au patrimoine mondial de l'humanité, l'Unesco pourrait décider en juin prochain d'inscrire le site sur la liste du patrimoine mondial en péril. Ce serait un véritable camouflet pour le gouvernement australien, qui vient juste d'achever la consultation publique sur le Plan de développement durable de la Grande Barrière à l'horizon 2050. Pour Canberra, le temps presse.

    Les autorités australiennes se préoccupent pourtant du problème de longue date. Dès 1975, conscientes de l'inestimable valeur du site, elles ont créé la Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA), véritable centre d'expertise destiné à protéger le site pour les générations futures. Quatre ans plus tard, un accord est signé entre l'Etat du Queensland et l'exécutif fédéral pour gérer au quotidien cette Grande Barrière qui accueille chaque année pas moins de 2 millions de touristes, génère 5,4 milliards de dollars australliens (3,8 milliards d'euros) de recettes et près de 70.000 emplois......http://www.lesechos.fr/journal20141119/lec1_enquete/0203818826591-grande-barriere-de-corail-letat-durgence-1065735.php?xtor=RSS37&bZcRhEUX5yuigWpj.99

    A senior White house official says Biden on Friday will convey U.S. concerns about "Russia’s ongoing violations of the September 5th Minsk agreement with Ukraine." The agreement called for a ceasefire between Kyiv and pro-Russian separatists.

    The White House says Russia has not taken meaningful steps to implement its obligations under the agreement, such as removing all of its troops from Ukraine and stopping the flow of mercenaries, weapons and equipment across the border. The U.S. says Moscow has also failed to allow an international observer mission to monitor the international border between Russia and Ukraine.

    While in Ukraine, Biden will chair a roundtable discussion on anti-corruption and rule of law reforms.

    Biden's trip will also include stops in Morocco and Turkey.

  78. Gorbachev believes West accepts Crimea’s reunification with Russia ...

    Mikhail Gorbachev, the former Soviet President and the Nobel Peace Prize winner, said on Wednesday he believes the West has accepted Crimea’s choice to rejoin Russia.

    “In my opinion, it (the West) has already put up with this,” the former Soviet leader said in an interview with the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper, answering a question whether the West has accepted the fact that Crimea is now part of Russia.

    According to Gorbachev, the current Ukrainian crisis results from the hasty collapse of the Soviet Union after the so-called Belavezha Accords signed by the Russian, Ukrainian and Belarusian leaders in 1991.

    “When the Belavezha Accords were being discussed, they should have definitely returned to the issue of Crimea,” he said. “Russia must not be torn away from Crimea. This is its child,” the politician stressed.

"But in my view we should take it up and consider reasonable amendments on the floor to make it better."

    Οι νέες ποσότητες που ανακοινώθηκαν αποτελούν εκτιμήσεις των τριών εταιρειών και βασίζονται σε στοιχεία που αντλήθηκαν από νέες έρευνες που πραγματοποιήθηκαν στο κοίτασμα «Αφροδίτη».

    Παρά την αύξηση των ποσοτήτων αυτές δεν είναι ικανοποιητικές για να υποστηρίξουν τους στρατηγικούς σχεδιασμούς της κυβέρνησης για τερματικό υγροποίησης στο Βασιλικό.

    Στην ανακοίνωση των τριών εταιρειών αναφέρεται επίσης ότι στόχος είναι το φυσικό αέριο να διατεθεί στην διεθνή αγορά επειδή η αγορά της Κύπρου είναι μικρή για να απορροφήσει το σύνολο των ποσοτήτων.

    Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s decree on social and economic blockade of the country’s east is cruel and inhuman, the speaker of the Federation Council, the upper house of Russia’s parliament, said Wednesday.

    “On the one hand, the Ukrainian authorities speak of necessity to retain Ukraine’s territorial integrity, on the other hand, they adopt such decisions, simply pushing part of the population, some regions out of Ukraine,” Valentina Matviyenko told a TASS correspondent.

    “This is just madness,” the official said, adding that depriving residents of a large part of Ukraine of social benefits is very harmful for them.

  95. North Korea responds to UN with nuclear test threat ...

    North Korea has threatened to conduct a nuclear test in response to a United Nations move towards a probe into the country's human rights violations.

    Its foreign ministry on Thursday accused the United States of orchestrating a recent UN resolution calling for the investigation.

    North Korea previously conducted nuclear tests in 2006, 2009 and 2013.

    Its threat comes as new satellite images emerge indicating fresh activity at a North Korean nuclear facility.

    A UN human rights committee on Tuesday passed a resolution calling on the Security Council to refer North Korea to the International Criminal Court for alleged crimes against humanity.

    Pyongyang said the resolution was based on "fabricated testimonies" from North Korean defectors and "slander against Pyongyang".

    The resolution's approval was a "grave political provocation" by the US and such "aggression..is leaving us unable to further refrain from staging a new nuclear test."

    It added that its military deterrence "will be beefed up limitlessly" to guard against the US.

    A US State Department spokesman said in response: "It would certainly be unfortunate to threaten with that kind of activity in response to the legitimate focus on North Korea's human rights situation by the international community."...........http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-30125047

    La compagnia del gas rumena Romgas e la società austriaca OMV hanno proposto alla Moldavia forniture di gas ad un prezzo di 280-290 per mille metri cubi, ma questa offerta è stata ritenuta insoddisfacente.

    Lo ha dichiarato il vice premier e ministro dell'Economia moldavo Andrian Candu.

    Il prezzo è di 40-50 dollari più economico di quello russo, ma i volumi proposti sono insufficienti, ha spiegato. Le consegne sarebbero state effettuate attraverso il nuovo gasdotto Iasi-Ungheni, inaugurato il 27 agosto, ma finora non ancora funzionante.

    Secondo Candu, la Romania diventerà un'alternativa alle forniture di gas russo in Moldavia e negli altri Paesi vicini non prima di 5 anni, dal momento che il gasdotto non è ancora funzionante.

    "Today as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the UN Convention on the rights of the child, we wholeheartedly welcome the unprecedented global support for this important Convention.

    This year we celebrate the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to the young Pakistani activist for female education Malala Yousafzai and to the Indian child right's activist Kailash Satyarthi. Both have fought courageously for the girls' right to education which the EU considers as the best investment we can make in development.

    Children have always been and remain at the heart of EU policy. Inspired by the Convention, the EU promotes children's rights through specific Guidelines as well as through the EU Agenda for the rights of the child for internal action.

    In the same spirit, the EU decided to launch the EU Children of Peace initiative after receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 2012. So far, more than 108,000 children have benefitted from this humanitarian project ensuring education for children affected by conflict. Their number will grow as the initiative continues and more Member States join.

    The EU strives daily to protect children from harmful traditional practices such as Female Genital Mutilation and the Child, Early and Forced Marriage. At the Girl Summit held last July in London, the EU announced funding of more than €100 million for the next seven years to support gender equality and children’s wellbeing.

    Combating the worst forms of child labour, which includes children in armed conflict, remains high on our agenda. The EU actively supported the UN campaign “Children, Not Soldiers”, which aims to end by 2016 the recruitment and the exploitation of children by government armed forces in conflict.........................http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_STATEMENT-14-2003_en.htm

    Ali Ağırdaş had been convicted of receiving a "large amount of drugs" and was executed in the Saudi capital Riyadh, the ministry said in a statement.

    His execution brings to 70 the number of Saudis and foreigners beheaded in the kingdom this year, according to an AFP count, despite international concern.

    Rape, murder, apostasy, drug trafficking and armed robbery are all punishable by death under the kingdom's strict version of Islamic sharia law.

  118. Un voluntario griego muere a causa de bombardeos en Donetsk ...

    El voluntario griego Afanasi Kosse falleció este martes a causa de los bombardeos en el aeropuerto de Donetsk, informó el presidente de la Asociación de Graduados Universitarios de la antigua URSS, Panagiotis Xanthopoulos.

    Según comunicó, Kosse, de doble nacionalidad -griega y ucraniana- combatía en las filas de los milicianos y al mismo tiempo recogía materiales para su Libro Blanco sobre los delitos contra la población civil en el este de Ucrania.

    «Ha recogido buenos materiales sobre la situación en Ucrania”, dijo Xanthopoulos.

    El amigo del fallecido relató que Kosse investigó el caso de los bombardeos contra la localidad de Sartana que acabó con la vida de seis ciudadanos de Grecia, entre otros, y demostró que fueron las tropas ucranianas que abrieron fuego.

    “Kosse decía que si los medios de comunicación griegos no tienen coraje para escribir la verdad sobre Ucrania, lo haremos nosotros”, recordó Xanthopoulos...........http://sp.ria.ru/international/20141121/163195058.html

  119. Washington insuffle à l'Europe la peur de la Russie ...

    L'Europe exagère sciemment les craintes de la population face à une prétendue menace russe, écrit vendredi le quotidien Rossiïskaïa gazeta.

    Et il ne s'agit pas que des élucubrations de certains politiciens russophobes, mais une tendance stable appelée à inculquer à la population du Vieux Continent le frisson de "l'arrivée des Russes".

    L'amplification de la psychose est à la charge des médias. De la même manière que le fameux chien de Pavlov bave en entendant la cloche, la direction de l'Otan inculque aux Européens le réflexe tout aussi persistant de la "russophobie - rien qu'en mentionnant Moscou les Européens se serrent conter les USA et sont prêts à satisfaire tout caprice de Washington".

    La Suède est un parfait exemple. Ce pays a d'abord cherché un sous-marin russe qui se serait rendu près de ses côtes. L'agitation des recherches ressemblaient à celle autour du monstre du Loch Ness..................http://fr.ria.ru/presse_russe/20141121/203038150.html

  121. Egypt closes schools in Sinai towns as area inches toward open war ...

    (Reuters) - Egypt has indefinitely shut schools in two border towns in northern Sinai as the army prepares to intensify a battle with Islamist militants that turned the daily trip to lessons into a "journey of death".

    Local people say children's education has fallen victim while the military stages air strikes against jihadists, who are targeting soldiers and police, and have started beheading army informers.

    "We are putting our lives at risk on a daily basis," said Mohamed, a teacher who lives in the town of Sheikh Zuweid. "Sometimes there is fire between gunmen and the armed forces and sometimes stray bullets hit some of us.".............http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/11/21/us-egypt-sinai-schools-idUSKCN0J50V320141121?feedType=RSS&feedName=worldNews

    U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has reportedly called Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades to ask if he wants him to convey any messages to Ankara ahead of his visit three-day visit to Turkey.

    Biden telephoned Anastasiades to ask him, “What do you want me to tell Ankara?” amid strained ties between the Turkish and Greek Cypriot sides over rights on the energy resources of the divided island.

    According to sources close to the Cypriot government, Anastasiades told Biden, “I want to solve the Cyprus issue as soon as possible. Convey this.”....................http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/what-do-you-want-me-to-tell-ankara-biden-asks-greek-cypriot-leader-before-visit.aspx?pageID=238&nID=74634&NewsCatID=359

  123. ‘Western policy of destroying ISIS completely unsuccessful’....

    The US anti-ISIS policy only helps them recruit more people, while the only way to fight ISIS is to secure borders and re-examine immigration policies both in America and Europe, retired US Army Colonel Douglas MacGregor told RT.

    President Obama is under increasing pressure from the military to send troops to fight against the Islamic State. It has also been reported that the Pentagon doesn’t have enough drones to use against extremists.

    RT: Do you think President Obama's policy in fighting the Islamic State is working?

    Douglas MacGregor: Of course not, it is completely unsuccessful from the standpoint of destroying ISIS, but it’s an enormous success story for ISIS. It is actually helping the Sunni Islamists recruit new people – more than a thousand every month from across Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.

    RT: What should be done differently?

    DM: First of all, the US should completely disengage from this. This is Sunni vs. Shia war at the regional level that has nothing to do with us. Iraq and Syria do not exist as states any longer. Southern Iraq is now a satellite of Iran, Syria is split between Mr. Assad who is aligned with Iran and Sunni Muslim extremists who want to remove him. Remember, on one side you have the Turks, the Saudis and other Sunni Islamists, and on the other side you have Iran, Russia in the background, its [Iran’s] allies in Iraq, Hezbollah in Lebanon and Syria. So this is really not a fight for the US at all...................http://rt.com/op-edge/207623-us-middle-east-isis-drones/

  124. Ukraine accuses Russia of cross-border shelling ...

    Ukraine on Friday accused Russia of carrying out a cross-border shelling against Ukrainian positions in the eastern part of the country.

    "Over the past day, for the first time since the signing of the Minsk agreements, we recorded a resumption of shelling of Ukrainian territory from the territory of the Russian Federation," Andrei Lysenko, a spokesman for the National Security and Defense Council, told a media briefing.

    He said the cross-border shells were fired from Manotsky, a village in Russia's Rostov region, against Kamyshnoe, a village in Ukraine's Lugansk region, which lies near the crossing checkpoint on the joint frontier between the two neighboring countries.

    Besides, Lysenko again accused Russia of aiding independence-seeking insurgents with weapons and sending troops to combat areas of the conflict in eastern Ukraine.

    The accusations came as fierce fighting resumed in Donetsk and Lugansk regions, after the ceasefire agreement signed by the Ukrainian government and insurgent leadership in September practically collapsed.

    Over the past 24 hours, one government soldier was killed and 18 others wounded in confrontation with rebels, according to the press service of the Ukrainian military operation................http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/893034.shtml

  125. The EP is not only the EU's only directly-elected institution, but it also does its best to promote democracy outside Europe....

    This year marks 20 years of European Parliament involvement in election observation. Last year the Parliament sent delegations to observe elections in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Honduras, Jordan, Kenya, Madagascar, Mali, Nepal, Pakistan, Paraguay and Tajikistan. In recent months MEPs participated in missions to Egypt, Tunisia and Ukraine.

    About the observation missions
    Since 1994 the European Parliament has worked to strengthen the legitimacy of national elections and to increase public confidence in elections in countries outside the EU. The Parliament can send delegations of MEPs to observe elections or referendums on the condition that the polls are held at the national level, that national authorities have invited the EU or the European Parliament, and that a long-term mission is present.

    MEP delegations normally form part of the wider EU Election Observation Mission (EOM). When there is no EU mission present, Parliament's delegations are integrated into the missions of the OSCE's Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights.

    To find out more about the importance of these missions, we talked to MEPs involved with recent election missions.

    Ukraine

    Fourteen MEPs observed the parliamentary elections in Ukraine on 26 October. The delegation was headed by Andrej Plenković, who judged the elections to have been in line with international standards. Plenković called election observation "one of the best examples of Parliament's commitment to supporting the development and consolidation of democracy, the rule of law and human rights in third countries".

    The Croatian member of the EPP group added: "The participation of members in election observation activities increases the European Parliament's political added value and visibility in countries outside the EU and further enhances the democratic legitimacy of the election observation process.".......................http://www.europarl.europa.eu/news/en/news-room/content/20141120STO79702/html/Two-decades-of-EP-observation-missions

    Ukraine's pro-Western political parties on Friday agreed to make joining NATO a priority in a coalition deal that will give them a parliamentary majority.

    The coalition agreement inked by the five parties stipulates that a law must be passed by the end of the year confirming Ukraine's intention to push for membership of the military alliance.

    Any step by Kiev towards joining the bloc would further rile Russia, with East-West tensions already at boiling point over fighting in east Ukraine between government forces and pro-Moscow rebels..................http://english.ahram.org.eg/NewsContent/2/9/116102/World/International/Ukraine-coalition-agrees-to-make-NATO-membership-a.aspx

    US-Vizepräsident Joe Biden hält eine Diskussion über eine Aufhebung der westlichen Sanktionen gegen Russland erst dann für denkbar, nachdem Russland die Vereinbarungen, die die ukrainische Regierung und die abtrünnigen Regionen Donezk und Lugansk im September in Minsk getroffen hatten, erfüllt hat.

    „Wenn Russland seine Verpflichtungen erfüllen und die Souveränität und territoriale Integrität der Ukraine respektieren würde, könnten wir rationale Diskussionen zu den Sanktionen beginnen. Aber das ist noch nicht der Fall“, sagte Biden am Freitag in Kiew nach einem Treffen mit dem ukrainischen Präsidenten Pjotr Poroschenko. Wenn Russland aber „Respektlosigkeit“ gegenüber den Minsker Vereinbarungen zeige, dann wäre eine weitere Verschärfung der Sanktionen möglich, drohte der US-Vizepräsident................http://de.ria.ru/politics/20141121/270055870.html

    La France risque de faire l'objet d'une procédure judiciaire en cas de non-exécution du contrat prévoyant la livraison de porte-hélicoptères de classe Mistral à la Russie, a annoncé vendredi l'ambassadeur de Russie auprès de l'Otan, Alexandre Grouchko.

    "A en juger d'après ce que nous lisons dans la presse (…) nous pouvons supposer que la France subit une pression sans précédent en la matière. Mais les contrats doivent être honorés. C'est la réputation de la France en tant que partenaire fiable et acteur international qui est en jeu", a déclaré le diplomate dans une interview à la chaîne de télévision Rossiya 24.

    "Si le contrat n'est pas rempli, la France fera face à des conséquences politiques graves et à la perspective d'une procédure judiciaire, car il s'agit d'investissements importants engagés dans ce projet", a souligné l'ambassadeur de Russie auprès de l'Otan.............Lire la suite: http://french.ruvr.ru/news/2014_11_21/Mistral-procedure-judiciaire-en-cas-de-non-livraison-Moscou-0235/

  131. Abbas warns Israel against 'religious war' ...

    Palestinian president warns of turning political conflict into religious one as clashes erupt across occupied West Bank.

    Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has warned against places of worship becoming points of conflict, as tensions remain high over right-wing Jewish demands to be able to pray inside Jerusalem's holiest compound.

    Speaking in Ramallah on Friday, Abbas warned Israel of turning the current political conflict into a religious one.

    "This is a crucial time, there's terrorism, religious conflict and violence. It is us who pay the price, the blood of our children," said Abbas.

    "I am warning against turning a political conflict into a religious one. Let's talk about politics not religion.".....................http://www.aljazeera.com/news/middleeast/2014/11/israel-keeps-al-aqsa-mosque-age-bar-lifted-2014112197012207.html

  132. EEUU agradece a Georgia por acoger a expresos de Guantánamo ...

    Washington está agradecido a Tiflis por acoger a tres expresos de Guantánamo, dijo el embajador de EEUU en Georgia, Richard Norland.

    "Georgia acoge a los presos, le estamos agradecidos y consideramos que se trata de un acto humanitario", dijo Norland al señalar que es importante respetar "la privacidad de los reclusos".

    Interior de Georgia indicó que se trata de una iniciativa estadounidense y subrayó que después de un programa de rehabilitación de los expresos de Guantánamo volverán a sus países.

    "En 2010 Georgia ya acogió a tres expresos de Guantánamo que regresaron a sus países una vez concluido el programa", recuerda el comunicado del ministerio.

    Previamente, el viceministro del Interior, Leván Izoria, declaró que Georgia se compromete a garantizar la seguridad de los expresos.

    Según los medios, los tres exreclusos son originarios de Yemen.

    El jueves EEUU liberó a cuatro yemeníes y un tunecino de entre 31 y 48 años. Tres partieron rumbo Georgia y otros dos a Eslovaquia.
