  After warm words, US tells Kim Jong-un that concessions will only come after denuclearisation   Fri, 21 Sep 2018 00:42:39 -0400

After warm words, US tells Kim Jong-un that concessions will only come after denuclearisationHopes of rapid progress towards the denuclearisation of North Korea cooled on Thursday after the US pushed back against Kim Jong-un's promise to dismantle a nuclear test site if Washington first made concessions. Donald Trump and his secretary of state had both offered words of encouragement after Kim signed a joint statement with Moon Jae-in, the South Korean president, during three days of talks in Pyongyang this week. But that was followed by a more sober State Department briefing insisting nothing had changed in the US position and there could be no rewards for Mr Kim’s regime until it completed the denuclearisation process. Heather Nauert, a State Department spokeswoman, said, “Nothing can happen in the absence of denuclearisation. Denuclearisation has to come first.” Analysts have long pointed out that promises made by Kim offer little new, particularly on the issue of its nuclear weapons capability. Inside North Korea: fascinating images of the world's most secretive state That was not enough to prevent an initial positive reaction from US officials. Mr Trump described the joint declaration as “tremendous progress”. “Kim Jong-un has agreed to allow nuclear inspections, subject to final negotiations, and to permanently dismantle a test site and launch pad in the presence of international experts”, Mr Trump tweeted on Wednesday. “In the meantime there will be no rocket or ruclear testing”. Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state, was equally bullish about the developments, saying he had invited Ri Yong-ho, the North Korean foreign minister, to a meeting during the United Nations General Assembly in New York next week. Beyond the pomp and pageantry, Moon is keeping delicate denuclearisation talks with North Korea on track “This will mark the beginning of negotiations to transform US-[North Korean] relations through the process of rapid denuclearisation of North Korea, to be completed by January 2021, as committed by Chairman Kim, and to construct a lasting and stable peace on the Korean Peninsula”, Mr Pompeo said in a statement. The demolition of a missile engine test site and a launch pad are not considered to be concessions because the North has already demonstrated that it can launch long-range ballistic missiles and has mobile missile launchers. The offer to shut down the nuclear plant at Yongbyon is also of limited significance because it is widely understood that Pyongyang is operating at least one secret uranium enrichment facility elsewhere. And while the North offered to dismantle the Yongbyon, it also added the caveat that it would only do so “if the US takes corresponding measures”. Washington’s insistence that the ball is in Mr Kim’s court is becoming increasingly unpopular in South Korea, however, with a new poll showing that six out of 10 people believe that additional cross-border exchanges should be permitted, along with economic cooperation, before North Korea carries out its promises to abolish its nuclear weapons.

In April 2018, I began documenting grassroots community action in response to the social problems associated with poverty — from street crime and drug addiction to gun violence. In this series, which is part of a long-term urban project I started in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, in 2012, I have been following the efforts of a local organization called ManUp Inc. Members use the Egyptian word “hotep,” which means “to be at peace,” to greet people in their community.

Netanyahu joined Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz on the ride from a newly built train station in Jerusalem's city centre to Ben Gurion International Airport near Tel Aviv. Travelling at speeds up to 160 kilometres (100 miles) per hour, the ride from central Jerusalem to the airport will take 21 minutes -- half the time it takes to drive there in normal traffic, though congestion often makes the trip much longer.

  Gavin Williamson commits extra British troops in Ukraine to stop Russia 'reversing Cold War outcome'   Thu, 20 Sep 2018 17:00:00 -0400

Gavin Williamson commits extra British troops in Ukraine to stop Russia 'reversing Cold War outcome'Only a month ago, a Ukrainian soldier was killed by sniper fire at the spot where Gavin Williamson, the Defence Secretary, is now standing. This is the front line of the West’s new war with Russia. Two hundred yards away, Russian-backed separatists are in position, their sniper rifles at the ready. Protected by helmet and body armour, Mr Williamson is surveying the remains of a hospital, its walls bullet-riddled and the windows blown out. Separatist fighters had targeted it with mortars  and machine gun fire from across the fields that now represent an illegal de facto border between Ukraine and Russian-occupied territory outside Marinka, a satellite town about three miles to the west of Donetsk.  Mr Williamson had deployed forward from the safety of Kiev, Ukraine’s capital city, to see for himself the effects of what he called Russia’s “brazen and reckless” act of initiating the conflict in the east of the country.  Britain will increase military support to its ally by sending Royal Marines later this year and increase the presence of Royal Navy patrols in the Black Sea in 2019.  Odessa, Ukraine’s biggest port, located in the west of the country, is expected to come under pressure from the Russian Navy over the coming months as they try to effect an economic blockade. Gavin Williamson with troops in the contested region of Ukraine. September 18th 2018. Tension with Russia after Ukraine’s Maidan Revolution in 2014 led to separatists, backed by regular Russian military units, seizing Crimea and a large swathe of Ukrainian territory along the border. More than 10,000 lives have been lost in the conflict. Mr Williamson’s Ukrainian hosts watched nervously as the Secretary of State surveyed the damage, mindful that he stay on the paved surface. The fields either side are now feared to have been planted with landmines hidden beneath the soil.  The Ukrainian soldier killed last month had been shot at from a house on the Russian separatist side of the frontline. Mr Williamson became on Tuesday the first western minister outside of Ukraine to experience the frontline - and Vladimir Putin’s land grab - at such close proximity. He may as well have been sauntering down Whitehall. “The Kremlin is trying to undermine our values, destroy our way of life, and reverse the outcome of the Cold War,” said Mr Williamson, 42. “Its behaviour only increases the risk of miscalculation and the prospect of crisis turning to chaos.”  There needs to be a response to Russian encroachment. We’ve got to make it clear that there is a price to be paid for such actionsDefence Secretary Gavin Williamson The Mi-8 Hip helicopter taking us east towards the 300 mile-long Line of Control, the new, illegal border with Russia, had raced forward at 120 knots, pulling up sharply to get over trees and power lines. Twenty-six Ukrainian aircraft have been shot down by Russian-supplied surface to air missiles since the conflict started, so the pilots take no chances and cling to the safety of the folds in the earth.  Some 35,000 Russian-backed separatists and an estimated 4,000 regular Russian troops are located in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of eastern Ukraine. Holding them back are around 60,000 Ukrainian forces. The Kremlin tried to break the will of the Ukrainian people, Mr Williamson said, but the nation came together against such a blatant act of aggression. “What you’ve seen is an independent free nation that has been attacked by a powerful neighbour and we’ve seen men and women come together to repel that invasion and push back those that would wish to do them harm,” he told the Telegraph, accompanying him on the visit.   “Vladimir Putin and his cronies around him want to abuse their power. This is not the type of behaviour we expect of any nation, let alone one that sits as a permanent member of the Security Council. [Russia is becoming] a pariah nation.”  The Defence Secretary receives a brief in a hardened bunker from the Ukrainian General in command of the operational area.  Around 300,000 people live without clean water after the treatment plant supplying this region of Ukraine was destroyed by shelling. Just inside Russia an estimated 700 tanks are available to push further into Ukraine should the order come. Cyber attacks are common with Ukrainian military personnel regularly harassed on their personal mobile phones. The message from Russia is clear: we can get to you any time we want.   Russia’s military intelligence arm, the GRU, blamed by Britain for the nerve agent attack in Salisbury, is also present. Two GRU operatives were caught inside Ukraine in 2016 and exchanged for a pilot that had been shot down. They are all constant reminders of how easily Russia and the separatists can raise or lower the pressure, according to the wider agenda of destabilising Ukraine and making it an unattractive prospect for Nato or EU membership.  Gavin Williamson stayed at the front line for about 20 minutes, accompanied by Ukraine’s Joint Force Operation Commander, Lieutenant General Serhiy Nayev. The protection party of around 50 soldiers, scanning the scrub and battered buildings nearby for signs of movement, were eager to move on.  Four years of war in Europe: A photo dispatch from the frontline in Ukraine Despite all the security measures, including having two Mi-24 Hind helicopter gunships cover our approach, the soldiers admitted Russia probably knew the British Defence Secretary was here. To attack the British minister would, of course, be an outrageous and provocative act, but after Salisbury all rules have changed. Mr Williamson was undeterred and happy to stay chatting with Ukrainian troops. “We have common values and we believe in standing up for those common values,” he said, “It’s important that we stand up for the international rules-based order. “There is a constant pattern where Russia is pushing the boundaries of acceptable behaviour [and] there needs to be a response to Russian encroachment. We’ve got to make it clear that there is a price to be paid for such actions.”  Mr Williamson is in no doubt that blame lies directly with Mr Putin. “The behaviour of the Putin-led regime is not acceptable. We want to be able to ensure that the people who are on the front line, where we are today, have the best ability to survive and defend their homeland.” He also fears Mr Putin is widening his new Cold War with the West. Mr Williamson added: “We’re seeing Russian aggression, not just on the front line but an increasingly more assertive posture in the Black Sea. They want to open up new fronts.” Gavin Williamson is shown the last checkpoint on the Ukrainian side of the contested Line of Control. The Russian-backed separatist checkpoint is 300m further down the road.  The Defence Secretary is pledging to stand firm. “We’re going to be upping our training and support efforts with the Royal Navy and Royal Marines, making sure that the Ukrainian Navy and Ukrainian forces have the skills and the technical ability to deal with these increasing threats.” Mr Williamson was criticised in the past for saying Russia should “go away and shut up”. Invited by the Telegraph to repeat his suggestion at full volume towards the trenches just a few hundred yards away, he politely declined.  It was time to get back in the heavily armoured vehicles and head West, to the relative safety of Kiev. Mr Williamson’s full-throated support for his Ukrainian hosts and promise of increased British military personnel had earned much praise. “You are very brave for coming here,” one Ukrainian soldier told him.  “Our commitment remains unwavering,” Gavin Williamson said. “As long as the danger lasts we will continue to stand by your side. The safer you are here, the safer we are in the UK.”

  Hizbollah chief boasts of moving 'high-precision' weapons under Israel's nose   Thu, 20 Sep 2018 13:22:32 -0400

Hizbollah chief boasts of moving 'high-precision' weapons under Israel's noseThe leader of Lebanon's militant Hizbollah has boasted the group now possesses "highly accurate" missiles despite Israeli attempts to prevent it from acquiring such weapons. Hassan Nasrallah did not offer specifics on the precision weapons, but his comments prompted a reply from Israel's Prime Minister. Benjamin Netanyahu warned the Hizbollah leader that "if he confronts us, he will receive a lethal blow that he can't even imagine." Israel worries that Hezbollah has been improving its capabilities and Israeli officials have said they will not allow "game-changing" weapons, such as guided missiles, to reach the group. In recent months, Israel has acknowledged carrying out scores of strikes in Syria, most of them believed aimed at halting suspected arms shipments for Hizbollah from Iran, its main backer and Israel's archenemy. Female supporters of Lebanon's Hizbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah chant slogans as he addresses his supporters via a screen Credit: Reuters On Thursday, Nasrallah claimed Israeli strikes in Syria to prevent Hizbollah from acquiring precise missiles were ineffective. "I tell (Israel) no matter what it did to cut the route, it is over. It has already been achieved," he said, adding that Hizbollah "now possesses precision missiles and non-precision and weapons capabilities." Nasrallah was speaking during a traditional televised speech at the end of Ashoura, a top religious holy day for Shia Muslims that lasts for 10 days. He told supporters to be confident and Israelis to be concerned of Hizbollah's capabilities. Nasrallah said the balance of power in the region has changed. Hizbollah has thousands of fighters in Syria supporting President Bashar Assad's forces in the civil war. "If Israel imposes a war on Lebanon, Israel will face a destiny and reality it didn't expect any day," Nasrallah said. A general view shows Russian fighter jets on the tarmac at the Russian Hmeimim military base in Latakia province, in the northwest of Syria Credit: AFP Nasrallah's speech was broadcast on a large screen to supporters in Beirut's majority-Shia suburb of Dahiya. On Wednesday, Nasrallah said Israeli claims to have targeted a shipment to Hezbollah in Syria's Latakia province earlier this week were "lies." Hizbollah fighters will continue to be deployed in Syria, he said, but perhaps in lesser numbers due to reduced fighting there after Syrian government forces regained control of most rebel-held areas. Nasrallah also urged supporters to rally behind Iran, saying it's facing hard times as more US sanctions take effect in November.

  Five people, including three babies, stabbed at New York daycare centre   Fri, 21 Sep 2018 07:33:12 -0400

Five people, including three babies, stabbed at New York daycare centreThree babies and two adults were slashed during an early-morning assault at a suspected illegal childcare centre in New York City on Friday, police said. A 52-year-old woman who works there as a "babysitter/worker" was arrested after assault which took place in the Queens neighborhood at around 3:30am, a police spokesman told AFP. The suspect attacked two baby girls and a baby boy, leaving one of the girls in serious condition, police said. One of the adults hurt in the attack worked there, while the other was the father of one of the babies. None of the victims' lives were in danger, police said. Officers found the suspect in the basement of the center with self-inflicted cuts to her wrists. She has not yet been charged. "It looks to be an illegal" childcare facility, apparently for members of the city's Asian community, the police spokesman told AFP. "We're unsure of its legality at this time." It was not immediately clear how many other children were at the centre at the time of the assault.

A Ferrari V-6 Will Return, but the Dino Stays DeadFerrari will launch a new V-6 engine in its road cars for the first time since the days of the Ferrari-built, but not Ferrari-branded, Dino, more than 40 years ago. Announced at an investor meeting, the all-new turbocharged engine, which Ferrari said is a "new architecture" versus the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-6s it builds for current Maserati models, will be used in the company's new modular front-engine platform underpinning the next-generation Portofino, GTC4Lusso, and 812 Superfast, all of which will arrive no later than 2022. The engine will be compatible with all-wheel drive, although for the latter, it's unclear if Ferrari will refine the second gearbox for the front axle as seen in the Lusso, currently the only all-wheel-drive Ferrari, or adopt a more conventional layout by fitting electric motors to the front axle.
