The UN Security Council has unanimously adopted a resolution calling for a ceasefire and political settlement in Syria. The resolution envisions the formation of a unity government and calls for an immediate halt to any attacks on civilian targets.
Today, despite the difficulties you mentioned we notice signals from the current Georgian leaders and we are receiving them. Imagine, today Russia accounts for two thirds of Georgia’s wine and wine stock exports. They are coming to the Russian market not to some other market abroad. We are importing these products as well as others and our trade has increased. It declined a little this year due to general economic difficulties, but on the whole it is demonstrating fairly high growth rates.
As for visas, we’re ready to cancel them with Georgia.
It is hard for us to reach agreement with the current Turkish leadership, if at all possible,” Putin said during his news conference. He said the downing of the Russian warplane was “an act of enmity” and that he did not understand why Turkey did it.
“What have they achieved? Maybe they thought that we would run away from there (Syria)? But Russia is not such a country,” Putin said.
Out of all the Arab states affected by the wave of the so-called "Arab Spring", Libya has become the first and the fastest country sinking in chaos.
The murder of the head of state — Muammar al-Gaddafi, by rebels supported by NATO air power was supposed to bring democracy and freedom… But what did Libya receive in return, a country, which once headed the list of the richest countries in Africa, instead of the promised freedom and democracy?
After hundreds of Turkish troops filed into northern Iraq last week, Baghdad was quick to call foul. Viewing the move as a breach of its national sovereignty, Iraq gave a 48-hour deadline for the complete withdrawal of Turkey’s forces.
That deadline came and went without any reaction from Ankara, which insists that the troops are essential to defend trainers at a military base in the region.
Baghdad is now making good on its backup plan: an appeal to the UN Security Council.
Germany has publicly warned Saudi Arabia against further financing religious radicals globally. German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel’s demand to cut money flowing to the Wahhabis comes as some lawmakers are growing weary of Saudi-funded radical mosques.
Gabriel stressed that the Saudi regime has been funding mosques known for radicalizing the Muslim population, including in various communities in Europe.
Shoigu said that Russia has also greatly improved the capabilities of its strategic nuclear forces in a countermeasure to US and NATO’s rising nuclear deployment, adding that the Russian nuclear triad is now outfitted with 55 percent of modern hardware.
Russia does not look favorably upon the deployment of nuclear weapons in NATO states near its borders. Russian President Vladimir Putin said in June that if NATO threatens Russia, Moscow will respond to the threat accordingly.
“If someone threatens our territories, it means that we will have to aim our armed forces accordingly at the territories from where the threat is coming. How else could it be? It is NATO that approaching our borders, it’s not like we are moving anywhere,” he said.
“Judging by the reaction of some members of the UN Security Council, the actions of the Turkish military were a surprise even for its closest allies. Although thanks to the notorious block solidarity they refrained from critical comments directed at Ankara over those actions that blatantly violate international law,” she said.
She added: “It is becoming increasingly clear that if there is one thing they know how to do collectively in NATO, it’s staying collectively silent.”
The spokesperson said the UN Security Council will soon discuss the conflict over the Turkish incursion and that hopefully the scrutiny would restrain “hotheads in Ankara.”
According to www.webometrics.info, there are more than 17 000 universities, but getting a degree in many of them is quite costly. Many students around the world(and their families) get into big debt or have to work over sixty
The son of late Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi, Hannibal, has been kidnapped in Lebanese capital of Beirut, security sources say.
The group which kidnapped Gaddafi’s son is looking for information about a Shia cleric, who went missing in Libya decades ago. Late on Friday, a video was aired on the Beirut-based Al-Jadeed TV, in which Hannibal urged anyone who might be aware of the fate of Imam Moussa al-Sadr, to come forward.
In the footage, the man said that he was “in good health, happy and relaxed,” despite clear traces of violence on his body, including black eyes.
Local Al-Jadeed TV aired a video featuring a battered Gaddafi on Friday, in which he asks anyone with information on Imam Moussa al-Sadr to come forward. Al-Sadr is a prominent Shiite cleric who was himself kidnapped in Libya 37 years ago. Lebanon has long blamed Al-Sadr's disappearance on Moammar Gaddafi.
Hannibal was reportedly visiting his wife, Aline Skaf, at the time of the kidnapping.
Some reports indicate that the kidnappers have handed Gaddafi over to the authorities in Lebanon's internal security information branch
Everyone has noticed the contradiction of those who recently characterized the Islamic Emirate as "freedom fighters" in Syria and who are indignant today faced with its abuses in Iraq. But if that speech is incoherent in itself, it makes perfect sense in the strategic plan: the same individuals were to be presented as allies yesterday and must be as enemies today, even if they are still on orders from Washington. Thierry Meyssan reveals below US policy through the particular case of Senator John McCain, conductor of the "Arab Spring" and longtime partner of Caliph Ibrahim.
We've published images before of captured ISIS fighters who were part of the Turkish MIT ( Turkish Intelligence Agency). If you wonder why the Turkish government is refusing to fight the Islamic state, and refusing permission to foreign military bases near the Turkish border. And should there be any confusing as to why Erdogan's government…
"In the last 24 hours, Russian jets conducted 82 sorties against 204 terrorist targets in Syria, located in the provinces of Aleppo, Idlib, Latakia, Hama, and Homs," ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said, according to RIA Novosit. "Futhermore, 32 of the sorties were conducted at night."
Russia has conducted an aerial campaign alongside the Syrian government since September 30, as part of a joint effort to combat Daesh.
