    The government of President Donald Trump reported Saturday that all United Nations sanctions against Iran have been reinstated, a move that most of the rest of the world considers illegal and sets the stage for a potentially nasty confrontation during the world body’s annual General Assembly. . “The United States took this decisive step because, in addition to Iran’s failure to comply with its JCPOA obligations, the Security Council has not extended the United Nations arms embargo on Iran, which had been in force for 13 years,” Pompeo said in a statement issued this Sunday. “In accordance with our rights … we began the reimposition process to reinstate virtually all previously rescinded UN sanctions, including...

    In 2018, during the same special presentation that showed the world the iPhone XS and iPhone XR, the Apple Watch Series 4 was also presented. This watch, which carried the first major redesign in the history of the product, not only implemented important changes when it comes to interacting with the Apple Watch, but it also brought out some really impressive features. And between them, the one that took the headlines around the world was the electrocardiogram, or ECG. Thanks to the built-in electrodes on Apple Watch Series 4 and above, users can perform a rapid test to look for signs of atrial fibrillation, a very common type of arrhythmia that often goes unnoticed, but can...
    Donald Trump has insisted that two more Arab states are ready to join Bahrain and the UAE in recognising Israel.  Trump said that the US is 'very down the road with about five different countries', and that two of them 'are ready to try'. 'You're going to have a whole level of peace in the Middle East without blood all over the sand,' he said on Wednesday, a day after hosting the leaders of Israel, Bahrain and the UAE in Washington to sign the pact. Donald Trump has insisted that negotiations are ongoing with five Arab states to sign a peace deal with Israel, and that two of them are 'ready to try' 'I think Saudi Arabia ultimately will...
    According to documents reviewed by The New York Times, the fossil fuel industry is lobbying U.S. trade negotiations with Kenya to relax the country’s strict limits on plastics and to dump plastic waste on African nations. In 2017, Kenya introduced one of the world’s most strict plastic bag ban with heavy penalties for those manufacturing, selling, importing, or using single-use plastics. Kenyan plastic bans have been quite successful and other African nations have followed suit. As the world moves away from fossil fuels in an attempt to fight climate change, oil and gas companies and chemical producers are scrambling to find new sources of profit. They have pivoted to plastics, spending more than $200 billion on chemical and manufacturing...
    If other major developed countries could vote in the United States’ 2020 election, President Donald Trump’s chances of winning a second term would be slim and none. Trump was unpopular in Europe, Australia and Canada before the coronavirus pandemic — apart from extremist far-right groups — but according to a newly released poll by Pew Research Center, Trump’s mishandling of the crisis is creating negative views of the U.S. in countries ranging from Germany to Australia to Japan. In an article for Pew’s website, Richard Wike, Janell Fetterolf and Mara Mordecai explain, “Since Donald Trump took office as president, the image of the United States has suffered across many regions of the globe. As a new 13-nation Pew Research Center...

    President Donald Trump said Tuesday that "five or six" more Arab countries were poised to agree to normalize relations with Israel, in line with the landmark accords struck between the Jewish state and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. "Were very far down the road with about five countries, five additional countries," Trump said as he hosted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the Oval Office, ahead of a signing ceremony with both Arab states for the US-brokered peace deal. "Well have at least five or six countries coming along very quickly, were already talking to them," Trump said. Trump did not name the additional countries, but hinted during separate bilateral talks with UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al-Nahyan...
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he would be willing to sell other countries in the Middle East the same weapons systems sold to Israel, noting the region's wealth and saying it would be good for the United States and U.S. jobs. "They're very wealthy countries for the most part," Trump told Fox News in an interview ahead of a signing ceremony at the White House for agreements normalizing relations between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain later on Tuesday.. He noted that the UAE wanted to buy some fighter jets, adding: "I personally would have not problem with it. Some people do, they say ... maybe they go to war." (Reporting by Susan Heavey;...
    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Joint military drills taking place in Belarus this month between Russian and Belarusian forces are for counter-terrorism purposes and are not directed against other countries, the Interfax news agency cited Russia's defense ministry as saying on Tuesday. The "Slavic brotherhood" military drills began on Tuesday, the ministry said, and are due to run until Sept. 25. The drills are taking place in the Brest region near Belarus' border with Poland and are happening amid mass protests in Belarus following contested Aug. 9 presidential elections.

    A top European Union official said Tuesday that third countries might be invited to talks aimed at easing a dispute between Greece and Turkey over energy rights that has brought warships to the eastern Mediterranean. Greece and Turkey have been involved in a standoff at sea for weeks over maritime boundaries in an area between Turkey’s coast, the ethnically divided island nation of Cyprus and several Greek islands that Greece claims as its jurisdiction. A Turkish research ship that has been operating in the area to Greece’s consternation returned to port for maintenance, giving EU diplomats a window to launch negotiations between Greece and Turkey. EU member countries are also mulling sanctions against Turkey over its exploration. European Council President...
    Earlier this week, an Israeli plane imprinted with the word “peace” on the outside of its cockpit flew from Tel Aviv to Abu Dhabi, symbolically sealing a landmark diplomatic deal between the Jewish state and the United Arab Emirates. The El Al flight - carrying U.S. and Israeli leaders, including President Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner – was the first direct commercial passenger flight ever between the two countries. The Aug. 13 deal is said to already be propelling other countries to follow the Emirates in formally shaking hands with the nation many still don't even recognize on a map, breaking the decades-long mandate in which many Muslim-majority and Arab countries refused to form ties until there is an enduring peace...
    The United States will not be joining the international group to develop and distribute a coronavirus vaccine. According to the White House, because the initiative is tied to the World Health Organization (WHO), the United States declined to participate. While 170 other countries have joined the COVAX initiative to develop and distribute the vaccine, “The United States will continue to engage our international partners to ensure we defeat this virus, but we will not be constrained by multilateral organizations influenced by the corrupt World Health Organization and China,” White House spokesperson Judd Deere said in a statement, “This President will spare no expense to ensure that any new vaccine maintains our own FDA’s gold standard for safety and efficacy, is...

    Prices in the App Store are not the same around the world and in all countries, Apple adapts them to each place depending on the change of the currency and the taxes of each country. For this reason, if there are significant variations in these two parameters, the company makes a change that affects all the millions of apps available in the iPhone and iPad store from one day to the next. And that is what Apple has revealed, in four countries the prices of the apps are going to rise between 7.5% and 19%, these new prices will come into effect over the next few days. The four countries that will be affected by this...
    Award-winning singer Adele has been accused of cultural appropriation after a social media post featuring the superstar went viral on the internet. Many social media users who either purport to be American or are presumably American took the performer to task over the outfit, but those from other countries across the globe shut down the criticism as needless and inflammatory. What are the details of the photo?The 32-year-old British songstress, who has lost a significant amount of weight over the last year, can be seen in an Instagram post wearing leggings and a Jamaican flag-styled bikini top, her hair in Bantu knots. Bantu knots are a traditional African way of wearing the hair. The singer's post...
    Boris Johnson's Britain and the Donald Trump administration in the US have handled the Covid-19 pandemic the worst, according to a study.  Just 46 per cent of Britons and 47 per cent of Americans think their government has coped well with the coronavirus. In comparison, 95 per cent of people in Denmark believe their country's politicians have performed well under the pressure of the crisis.  Sweden, which opted against a lockdown, also scored well, with 71 per cent of residents praising their government's controversial approach.  The figures come from Pew Research Center, a Washington DC-based think tank, which interviewed more than 14,000 adults in 14 economically advanced countries.  Those who voted for the government in were more likely to give a...
    Beijing/Hong Kong (CNN Business)The United States and China say they're optimistic about the state of their trade agreement — even as the two superpowers fight over a slew of other issues, including technology and national security. High-level authorities from both countries — including US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He — spoke by telephone Monday evening US time, according to statements released by their respective governments. "Both sides see progress and are committed to taking the steps necessary to ensure the success of the agreement," Lighthizer's office said in a statement, referring to a "phase one" trade deal reached earlier this year. China's Ministry of Commerce called the talks "a constructive...
    Unlike many of my fellow liberals, I don’t consider the post office to be the very sinew upon which our nation rests. On the other hand, it is important and it’s worth running properly. Now, there are plenty of reasonable disagreements about how the post office should be run, but there’s one issue that seems almost indisputable to me: it should be able to set postage rates that allow it to break even. Unfortunately, federal law allows the price of first class stamps to rise only at the rate of inflation, and that’s plainly not enough in an era of email, Instagram, and falling volumes of first class mail. The German post office surveys European postage rates every few years,...

    White House National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien said Sunday the Trump administration is “confident” that several other countries will “get on board” in normalizing relations with Israel, after President Trump announced the “historic peace agreement" between the Jewish state and the United Arab Emirates last week. During an interview with NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” O’Brien touted the “courage” of both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the United Arab Emirates Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed, and said the Trump administration has been in talks with several other Middle East countries to implement a similar peace deal.

    Imagine telling an entire generation of Americans that within the next few months, they all have a significant chance of contracting pancreatic cancer unless they do as we say? Just think of the mental health and behavioral crisis such hyperbole would cause. Well, that is exactly what our government and media have successfully pushed on our society by treating every positive case of coronavirus as if it is a death sentence. Disproportionate fear and panic create a disproportionate mental health crisis. A new survey by the Commonwealth Fund reveals that Americans have a higher level of anxiety about the virus than any other Western country surveyed. The nonprofit health care research outlet conducted a mental health survey of 8,200...
    Getty As the debate around stimulus checks rages – whether they are being delivered competently, when people can expect Congress to agree on a package for more and why Trump did not include them in his executive orders – many Americans are eying other countries’ economic relief packages and often with envy. However, some of the figures being thrown around are misleading and other circumstances, including how well the pandemic is contained, have affected countries’ economic responses. To date, U.S. residents should have received one $1,200 check per individual with an additional $500 per dependent, according to the agency’s website. But the Internal Revenue Service has received heavy criticism for several gaffes around the delivery (or lack thereof)...
    CLAIM: “This virus has impacted almost every country. But there’s a reason it has hit America worse than any other advanced nation. It’s because of [President Donald] Trump’s failure to take it seriously from the start.” VERDICT: MISLEADING Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden’s vice-presidential pick, alleged Wednesday that the coronavirus had plagued the United States more than any other developed country. In sheer numbers, the United States has more confirmed infections and deaths than any other country. The U.S. also has the third-largest population in the world, more than any other developed country. Per capita, America has reported more cases than nearly all developed nations (except Chile), a tally by the Worldometer showed on Wednesday evening....
    President Donald Trump began a lengthy monologue at his Wednesday press conference by touting U.S. economic gains after the coronavirus hit – including faring better economically than other countries suffering far fewer infections. The president showcased a series of charts, including one that showed 'higher excess mortality' among other nations, after touting a daily gain in the Dow Jones industrial average.     'Stock market’s up almost 300 points again today,' Trump said, referring to the index. He said the U.S. was doing 'much better than Europe.' He pointed to a chart that showed U.S. stocks leading Europe, Japan, China and other nations. President Donald Trump brandished charts at his Wednesday briefing and said the U.S. economy's contraction was ''far less...

Americans have experienced more mental health problems during the coronavirus pandemic than people living in other high-income countries, according to a report issued late last week by the Commonwealth Fund. Americans are also experiencing greater financial hardship — a factor that has contributed to their higher levels of psychological stress — and are less likely than residents of other high-income countries to have a positive opinion of their national government’s pandemic response, the report found. “As our country struggles with the surging number of cases and the economic havoc that the...
    Sunday on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” Microsoft founder and billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates said the Trump administration’s coronavirus pandemic response was “mind-blowing that because you can’t get the federal government to improve the testing.” Zakaria asked, “How do you explain the fact that the richest country on earth, that spends per capita maybe two to three times as much on health care as all the other rich countries in the world, seems to be kind of at the bottom of the pile of the advanced countries in the world in being able to handle this pandemic, what would be your answer?” Gates replied, “Well, it took a number of mistakes.

    Customs and Border Protection officers seized nearly 20,000 counterfeit U.S. driver's licenses at Chicago's O'Hare airport this year. The shipment of fake driver's licenses were sent to the United States and originated from China and other countries, according to the report from WNYW-TV. Within the first six months of this year, CBP reportedly seized 19,888 counterfeit driver's licenses and other fake documents in 1,513 shipments at O'Hare International Airport alone. Federal customs officials say the shipments arrived mostly from China and Hong Kong, but there were some shipments from South Korea and Britain. CBP said most of the counterfeit driver's licenses were for college-age students. Many had the same photo but with different names. Ralph Piccirilli, CBP's...
    Counterfeit documents are giving criminals a license to commit a host of offenses, including terrorism, U.S. officials say -- and young adults who are lax with their personal information may be their biggest enablers. In the first six months of 2020, Customs and Borden Protection officers seized nearly 20,000 counterfeit U.S. driver’s licenses at Chicago’s O’Hare airport alone, according to a report. The 19,888 licenses and other fake documents were included in 1,513 overseas shipments, mostly from China and Hong Kong, CBP said, according to FOX 5 in New York City. Others were from South Korea and Britain. Ralph Piccirilli, CBP’s acting area port director in Chicago, called the counterfeits (made mostly for people in their twenties) “very realistic.” FEDS DISCOVER 'MOST SOPHISTICATED' CROSS-BORDER TUNNEL WITH...
    Sundar Pichai and Tim CookSource: Reuters; Apple President Donald Trump issued an executive order on Thursday ordering U.S. firms to stop doing business with popular Chinese apps TikTok, owned by ByteDance, and WeChat, owned by Tencent.  This comes after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said earlier in the week that he was calling on American app stores — which are dominated by Apple and Google — to remove "untrusted" Chinese apps. "With parent companies based in China, apps like TikTok, WeChat, and others, are significant threats to personal data of American citizens, not to mention tools for CCP content and censorship," Pompeo said in a briefing with reporters on Wednesday. It's unclear how the companies plan to implement the Trump administration's executive order,...

    Russia is not the only country trying to spread disinformation to influence Americans ahead of the 2020 presidential election, author Nina Jankowicz told CBSN. Jankowicz, who wrote the book "How to Lose the Information War," said the U.S. needs a "joined-up government response" to disinformation, which she defined as "false or misleading information used with malign intent." There were "not enough" consequences for Russia's meddling in the 2016 election, Jankowicz said. This has in part allowed Russia, as well as other countries, to continue to engage in disinformation campaigns, she said.  "China's certainly been engaging in similar tactics, although they're a little bit less, I would say, practiced at exploiting our societal fissures" as Russia, she said. "Iran has been doing...

    A majority of Americans are unhappy with the U.S. coronavirus response compared to how other countries are handling the pandemic, according to a new poll. A NPR/Ipsos poll released Tuesday indicates wide support for a single, national strategy to combat the virus. "Weve come to a pretty dire place when it comes to both the death toll and the spread of coronavirus across the country," said Mallory Newall, a pollster with Ipsos. "Americans, as they grapple with the reality of just how grave the situation is, theyre looking for sweeping, really broad, powerful action here." Poll results show: 66% of Americans say the U.S. is handling the coronavirus outbreak worse than other countries. 85% of Americans support allocating government...
    American women are more likely to not properly take their medications - or take them at all - compared to women in other countries, a new study suggests. Researchers found that women in the US were almost twice as likely to skip their prescriptions compared to Canadian women and three times more likely than Australian women. What's more, 25 percent of younger women said they couldn't adhere to their medication schedules due to the cost.   The team, from Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health in New York City, says this is not only likely because women take more prescriptions than men do but, if it continues, it could create future sex-related disparities. A new study has found one...
    Donald Trump took to Twitter on Monday in order to proclaim that the United States is doing much better than the media wants to report when it comes to the handling of the coronavirus pandemic. In once again claiming reports of his administration’s handling of the outbreak has been better than people are willing to give him credit for, he once again used an alternate title for the disease that some critics have said has a racist connotation. Trump also issued a qualifier when it came to judging how the US is handling the COVID-19 crisis. “With the exception of New York & a few other locations, we’ve done much better than most other countries in dealing with the China...

    Managua, Jul 20 (EFE) .- The office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (Acnudh) encouraged the Nicaraguan authorities on Monday to allow the return of Nicaraguans stranded in other countries for any reason, including the COVID-19 pandemic. The agency encouraged Nicaragua “to allow the return of those who are still waiting in other countries,” on the basis that “everyone has the right to return to their country of origin, even during a pandemic.” At least 281 Nicaraguans remain stranded in the Panamanian town of Chiriquí, bordering Costa Rica, and another 80 between the border of Guatemala and Honduras, according to various sources, however, it is unknown if there are others in the same situation in other countries,...
     The Bahamian government is banning travelers from the US and other countries where coronavirus cases are surging in an effort to prevent further spread of the virus in the Caribbean nation. All international commercial flights are banned from entering the Bahamas, effective Wednesday, July 22.

The move comes less than three weeks after the Caribbean country reopened its borders to international visitors amid the coronavirus pandemic on July 1. The Bahamas will be...
    LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Friday that the problems other countries are currently experiencing with the Covid-19 pandemic shows what can go wrong if rules are not followed by the public. "Look at other countries around the world, we can see all too clearly what could go wrong if we don't continue to follow the guidance, if we don't continue to keep this thing under control," he said at a Downing Street media briefing. "There are parts of the world where it's continuing to spike, we don't want to see that in this country," he said, without naming any countries.

With the flexibility of working from home during the coronavirus pandemic, many workers can take video conference calls from anywhere in the world — including a favorite (and socially distant) vacation spot. With travel restrictions beginning to be lifted, countries around the world are offering incentives to stay or visit long-term. Despite the caution to travel, the pandemic might be the perfect time to live out your dream of living abroad for a lower price, taking remote work to a whole new level. Here are the five places offering the most appealing deals. Barbados This Caribbean country is proposing a “12-month Barbados...

    Hundreds of nuclear weapons have been tested by the U.S. since WWII, but newer science has replaced the need for live detonations. Galerie Bilderwelt / Hulton Archive via Getty Images July 15, 2020 marks 75 years since the detonation of the first nuclear bomb. The Trinity Test, in New Mexico’s Jornada del Muerto desert, proved that the design for the Nagasaki Bomb worked and started the nuclear era. The U.S. tested nuclear bombs for decades. But at the end of the Cold War in 1992, the U.S. government imposed a moratorium on U.S. testing. This was strengthened by the Clinton administration’s decision to sign the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. Although the Senate never ratified the treaty and it...
    China today accused the US of 'sailing through the world like a bully' amid an escalating row over the disputed South China Sea.  Hours after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo branded Beijing's claim over the waters as 'completely unlawful', China's embassy in Washington hit back by accusing Donald Trump's administration of 'flexing muscles, stirring up tension and inciting confrontation' with a 'completely unjustified' attack. Foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian called the US a 'troublemaker and destroyer of regional peace and stability' after two aircraft carriers, the USS Nimitz and USS Ronald Reagan, were recently dispatched to the region in a show of force.   Beijing claims most of the South China Sea based on the 'nine-dash line', a vague delineation which dates back...
    President Donald Trump wants U.S. schools to reopen as soon as possible, citing the success of such measures in other countries. But not everyone is in a hurry to send kids back into the classroom as coronavirus cases surge across the nation. Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former Food and Drug Administration commissioner, says that U.S. children are more likely than kids in other countries to have underlying medical conditions. Reopening schools too soon will increase their risk of getting severely sick with COVID-19. According to CNBC, Trump said that schools in “Germany, Denmark, Norway and Sweden, along with many other countries” were “open with no problems.” But Gottlieb countered that about 6 million children in America suffer from asthma according to...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and one of the nation's leading voices on the coronavirus pandemic, said Thursday that the U.S. is not "doing great" in its response to the virus compared to other countries. "As a country, when you compare us to other countries, I don't think you can say we're doing great. I mean, we're just not," Fauci said in an interview with FiveThirtyEight. Although Fauci noted that some cities like New York City have seen improvement, several other states are seeing a dramatic spike in coronavirus cases. Fauci attributed COVID surges in states to their decisions to reopen too quickly. On Thursday, California, Florida and Texas reported their...
    Vienna (AFP) – Lives are at risk as the new coronavirus pandemic has led to a surge in the trafficking of substandard masks, sanitisers and other medical products, the UN warned Wednesday. Organised criminal groups — exploiting fears and uncertainties surrounding the virus — are providing such products to cater to a sudden surge in demand and the supply gap, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) said in a report. UNODC said it expected criminals to shift their focus to vaccine-related trafficking once one was developed. Fraud and scams as well as cyberattacks targeting critical infrastructure have followed the spread of the virus, it added. “Health and lives are at risk with criminals exploiting the COVID-19 crisis...
    London — The United States has been put on England's travel "red list," meaning that people visiting from America will be forced to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival starting on July 10, Britain's transport minister Grant Shapps said Friday. The announcement comes as the U.S. has seen a record surge in coronavirus cases. Visitors to England have been required to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival since June. Shapps announced that people from more than 50 countries would soon be allowed to visit the U.K. without quarantining, leading to a "reopening of the nation." Those countries will be organized in a traffic light system, using the colors green, amber, and red to represent the prevalence of coronavirus they have...
    Coronavirus — Brazil exceeds 60,000 deaths from covid-19 2:36 . – Patience in lifting coronavirus restrictions is paying off worldwide, but lifting the blocks too soon can have deadly consequences. A CNN analysis of policies in 18 nations has shown that most countries that have now been designated by the European Union as with the epidemic under control only began to soften their regulations after seeing sustained drops in new daily cases of covid-19. In contrast, three of the four countries with the highest number of deaths and cases in the world – the United States, Brazil, and India – never closed properly or reopened before their case counts began to decline.

    SEOUL (AP) – While China is close to containing a new outbreak in Beijing, the coronavirus continues to progress in other parts of the world, including the United States, where the increase in infections in the southern stages revealed the dangers of reactivating the economies without a vaccine or effective treatment against the virus. After a new record of daily infections on Friday, India is close to half a million cases, and other countries with large populations such as Indonesia, Pakistan and Mexico face significant increases in collapsed health systems. South Africa, which has about half the infections in Africa with 118,375 cases, reported a record 6,579 new cases within a rebound after the relief of what was one of...
    Microsoft founder Bill Gates harshly criticized the United States' response to the coronavirus pandemic saying its refusal to work with other countries has caused a 'vacuum' in solving the global problem. Gates said that the U.S. had been more concerned with 'trying to cast blame' for the spread of the virus instead of collaborating with other countries in eradicating it, blasting the 'inward' approach the country has taken. He added that he believed 'rationality will reappear from someone' and the U.S. will rejoin the efforts of the World Health Organization, which President Trump said he was withdrawing from earlier this year. Melinda Gates seconded his support of WHO's work, later adding that when a vaccine is available, black Americans should...
    By KIM TONG-HYUNG, Associated Press SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — While China moved closer to containing a fresh outbreak in Beijing, the coronavirus took a stronger hold elsewhere, including the United States, where surging infections across southern states have highlighted the risks of reopening economies without effective treatment or vaccines. Another record daily increase in India on Friday pushed the country’s caseload toward half a million, and other countries with large populations like Indonesia, Pakistan and Mexico grappled with large caseloads and strained health care systems.

    By JOE McDONALD, AP Business Writer BEIJING (AP) — The United States is willing to help other countries finance purchases of next-generation telecom technology from Western providers so they can avoid Chinese tech giant Huawei, which Washington sees as a security threat, an American official said Thursday. Washington is lobbying European and other allies to exclude Huawei Technologies Ltd. as they upgrade to 5G networks. Australia, Japan and some others have imposed restrictions on Chinese technology, but Huawei’s lower-cost equipment is popular with developing countries and is making inroads into Europe. Giving Huawei even a small 5G role would allow Beijing to expand its “surveillance state” by eavesdropping on phone and other network-based systems, said Keith Krach, a U.S. undersecretary...

    LONDON (Reuters) - British transport minister Grant Shapps said he would say more on June 29 about possible air bridges with other countries to enable travel during the coronavirus crisis, adding that conversations were ongoing. Britons hoping to go on holiday and airlines are putting pressure on the government to drop a quarantine on those returning to Britain or to form air bridges, where two countries agree to allow travel without such measures. "We'll say more about this on June 29 which is when the current three-week period expires," Shapps told a committee of lawmakers, saying he would look to what the level of infection was in other countries and their testing regimes when considering forming air bridges. He said...
    ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — Croatia on Wednesday was mulling whether to partially restore border restrictions for the citizens of several other Balkan countries after a spike in cases of the coronavirus and an outbreak at an exhibition tennis tournament organized by top-ranked Novak Djokovic.

    President Donald Trump said coronavirus testing in the United States is so much more effective than testing in other countries that it makes it look “like we have more cases.” Trump’s comment came Monday after a Saturday rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, at which he said he told his administration to “slow down” COVID-19 testing. He’s since faced backlash, mainly from Democrats, as a reported 120,000 deaths have occurred nationwide related to the virus. Our Coronavirus testing is so much greater (25 million tests) and so much more advanced, that it makes us look like we have more cases, especially proportionally, than other countries. My message on that is very clear! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 22, 2020 ...

    President Donald Trump has reiterated that it may only look like the United States has substantially more coronavirus cases than other countries because there is more testing. Trump's trade adviser had earlier insisted the American leader was only joking when he urged his admin to slow down on the testing during a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday. It was after he claimed the the US topping the infection rate tables was simply down to carrying out more tests. But on Sunday, Trump tweeted defending the fact that the US rate of COVID-19 the country reached 2,279,879 infections and 119,969 deaths. 'Our Coronavirus testing is so much greater (25 million tests) and so much more advanced, that it makes us look like...
    The United Nations received some strong criticism from U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo over a resolution passed by the organization’s controversial Human Rights Council targeted the United States. The HRC’s resolution criticized America’s alleged problem with policing and race, Fox News reported, even though the council itself ignores egregious human rights abuses from some of the countries that sit on the council. “The United Nations Human Rights Council, now comprised of Venezuela and recently, Cuba and China, has long been and remains a haven for dictators and democracies that indulge them,” Pompeo said in a statement, Fox reported. “It is a grave disappointment to those genuinely seeking to advance human dignity. Even so, the Council’s decision to vote yesterday...
    GENEVA – The head of the U.N. refugee agency expressed concerns Thursday about impact of the coronavirus pandemic from Africa's Sahel region to Latin America and beyond, warning that millions fled upheaval at home and could face hardship abroad among lockdowns and other restrictive measures to fight the outbreak. U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi said 164 countries have either partially or totally closed their borders to fight COVID-19. Many people who flee abroad rely on the “informal economy” often involving day work with cash wages — economic activities that are at risk as governments ratchet up coronavirus lockdowns. “Of course, it is good that countries are taking these measures of prudence” against the virus, Grandi told the...
    As poor countries around the world struggle to beat back the coronavirus, they are unintentionally contributing to fresh explosions of illness and death from other diseases — ones that are readily prevented by vaccines. This spring, after the World Health Organization warned that the pandemic could spread swiftly when children gathered for shots, many countries suspended their inoculation programs. Even in countries that tried to keep them going, cargo flights with vaccine supplies were halted by the pandemic and health workers diverted to fight it. Now, diphtheria is appearing in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal. Cholera is in South Sudan, Cameroon, Mozambique, Yemen and Bangladesh. A mutated strain of poliovirus has been reported in more than 30 countries. And measles is...
    BERLIN (AP) — The head of the United Nations’ atomic watchdog agency reiterated Monday that Iran must provide inspectors access to sites where the country is thought to have stored or used undeclared nuclear material. International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Mariano Grossi told reporters after a meeting of the agency’s board in Vienna that he had made his case with “Iranian authorities at higher levels.” “We need this cooperation,” he said. “I regret that at this point we have this disagreement.” Grossi told the board that for more than four months “Iran has denied us access to two locations and that, for almost a year, it has not engaged in substantive discussions to clarify our questions related to possible...
    Former Trump national security adviser John Bolton’s long-delayed book will reportedly allege that President Donald Trump’s corruption of American foreign policy went beyond his attempts to shake down the Ukrainian government for dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden. According to Axios, Bolton’s book will argue that there was “Trump misconduct with other countries” besides Ukraine, although the publication’s source did not go into specifics about which countries are involved. Trump’s attempts to pressure the Ukrainian government to investigate Biden by putting a hold on its military aid led to him being impeached on abuse of power charges in the House of Representatives last year. In addition to its revelations about Trump’s foreign policy, the book will accuse Trump of...

    North Korea is conducting a wide-ranging malicious campaign against the U.S. and global targets, according to several reports. Last month, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the FBI and the Department of Defense released three reports on malware variants used by the North Korean government.

    BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Hungary’s president on Thursday stressed the need for mutual respect between Hungary and neighboring countries where some 2 million ethnic Hungarians live following a post-World War I peace treaty signed exactly 100 years ago. At the same time, Janos Ader spoke of Hungarians’ “right” to keep unaltered their “spiritual borders,” despite the changes on the real map, and stressed the need to “rectify” the damage from the treaty. Hungary was on the losing side in the war and was stripped of over two-thirds of its territory, populated by some 3.3 million ethnic Hungarians, after the June 4, 1920, Treaty of Trianon — signed in the Grand Trianon Palace in Versailles, France. The fate of the...
