Japan Takes Lead in Addressing Nuclear Disarmament and Non-Proliferation

15 Mar 2024  |  amerinews.tv
Japan is preparing to lead a high-level briefing on nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation during its presidency of the Security Council, chaired by Foreign Minister Yōko Kamikawa with a briefing by UN Secretary-General António Guterres. The Security Council has historically pursued disarmament, but progress is challenged by geopolitical tensions, nuclear arsenal modernization, and increased military expenditures. Recent actions by Russia and North Korea, along with Iran's uranium enrichment, have heightened nuclear risks. The Council faces hurdles in promoting disarmament due to the reluctance of nuclear-armed states and divisions among members. Japan's unique position as the only country to have experienced nuclear bombing drives its commitment to disarmament, as evidenced by a resolution it led in the General Assembly, supported by 148 member states.

In a high-stakes United Nations Security Council meeting, officials expressed grave concerns over the recent bombing of Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital in Gaza, which killed 500 civilians. The session, requested by U.A.E. and Russia, underscored the urgent need for action following the failure to adopt a humanitarian resolution due to a US veto. Key figures like Martin Griffith and Tor Wennesland emphasized the importance of protecting civilians and criticized the international community's failure. Riad Mansour and Taher Sonni highlighted past denials by Israel and accused the Security Council of hypocrisy and double standards. The meeting stressed the dire consequences of inaction in Gaza, with the world closely watching the unfolding crisis.

The Complex Dynamics of Palestinian Refugees in Egypt: A Delicate Balancing Act

13 Oct 2023  |  www.linkedin.com
Egypt's reluctance to accept Palestinian refugees from Gaza is influenced by economic challenges, security concerns related to Hamas's involvement in North Sinai terrorism, and historical ties with the Muslim Brotherhood. Historical precedents in Jordan, Lebanon, Tunisia, and Kuwait highlight the complexities and potential security risks of hosting Palestinian refugees. Egypt's approach balances humanitarian concerns with its own security and economic stability.

Recent escalations in the Middle East have seen Hamas launch rockets towards Israel and engage in kidnappings, resulting in significant Israeli and Palestinian casualties. The attacks are seen as an attempt to disrupt Saudi-Israeli normalization talks, threatening Iran's regional influence. The situation has drawn diverse international reactions, with the US supporting Israel, and the EU and UN condemning Hamas. The absence of a Speaker of the House in the US could delay military support to Israel. Egypt and Qatar's roles in the crisis are noteworthy, given their ties with Hamas. The conflict's impact on the Palestinian civilian population is severe, with little hope for a swift resolution.

North Korea: Increased Provocations on Nuclear Test

05 Oct 2023  |  www.newslooks.com
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has escalated provocations by launching numerous ballistic missiles, including an Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile (IRBM) capable of reaching Guam. This move is seen as a show of defiance against the United States and its allies, South Korea and Japan, and an attempt to influence US politics ahead of the mid-term elections. Despite the United Nations Security Council's inability to condemn these actions due to the veto power of Russia and China, the US and its allies remain committed to negotiations aimed at the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. The article highlights the increased frequency and complexity of North Korea's military provocations and suggests that the US may need to consider shooting down North Korean missiles to assert military superiority, though this carries the risk of escalating into a military confrontation.

Biden says he would use military as a 'last resort' to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons

13 Jul 2023  |  www.amerinews.tv
US President Joe Biden, during a Middle East tour, stated he would only use military force as a last resort to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. He affirmed his stance to keep Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps on the US Foreign Terrorist Organizations list, even at the cost of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. The deal's restoration efforts have stalled, with recent negotiations in Doha failing to reach an agreement, largely due to the IRGC's terrorist designation, which the US refuses to lift.

France Under EU Pressure for Surveillance Sales to Egypt

12 Feb 2022  |  amerinews.tv
The European Commission is investigating whether France allowed the sale of cyber-surveillance technology to Egypt, a country facing accusations of repression under President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has contacted French authorities for clarification in compliance with EU export regulations. French Green MEP Mounir Satouri and other EU legislators called for action after a report by Disclose. The issue is particularly sensitive given France's current EU presidency and President Emmanuel Macron's previous honor bestowed on El-Sisi. Human Rights Watch and the Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies express concerns over the potential misuse of the technology for cracking down on dissent.

11 Feb 2022  |  amerinews.tv
A drone strike at Saudi Arabia's Abha airport on Thursday injured 12 civilians, as reported by the Saudi Press Agency.

Yemeni government troops have been combating Houthi rebels in Haradh, with at least 200 Houthis killed in the last 24 hours.

New York: Americans are holding different opinions on the recent ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court to legalize sports betting. Though sports betting is common in many countries, it’s not so much in many states within the United States – horse racing being an exception, which is allowed in most states. This is however, set to change following the court ruling that gives each state the right to legalize sports gambling – such as for football, baseball and basketball.

The United Nations turned into a football fan zone as Ambassadors from Russia and other countries participating in the World Cup donned jerseys of their national teams and gathered in a hall at the UN headquarters where they posed for group photos and watched the opening match between Russia and Saudi Arabia together.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres paid tribute today to fallen peacekeepers who served under the UN flag and recommitted to “carrying forward their mission for a better future.” A series of events honouring peacekeepers were held at the UN headquarters in New York today (01 Jun) in observance of the International Day of UN Peacekeepers which the Secretary-General marked on 29 May in a visit to the UN mission in Mali (MINUSMA). Guterres laid a wreath in memory of the more than 3,700 brave women and men who lost their lives while serving United Nations Peacekeeping since its inception, including 132 from 37 countries last year. He said the closure of the peacekeeping missions in Côte d'Ivoire and Liberia last year is a landmark on the road to peace and stability in a region that was once in chaos. He added that when the right strategies, resources and political support are in place, United Nations peacekeeping saves and improves lives for millions of people.

Two United Nations agencies signed a landmark agreement with the government of Myanmar today (6 Jun), which they hope will provide hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees with a pathway to return home, from overcrowded camps across the border in Bangladesh. The Spokesperson for Secretary-General António Guterres, Stéphane Dujarric, told reporters in New York that the Secretary-General “welcomes the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) reached by the Government of Myanmar, UNHCR, and the UN Development Programme on the UN system’s support to creating conditions conducive to voluntary, safe, dignified, and sustainable Rohingya refugee returns from Bangladesh, and their reintegration in Rakhine State.”

Canada, come this October, will become the first industrialized nation to legalize marijuana for recreational purposes, with all 10 provinces and three territories to decide for themselves how to roll out the new law. The new law would entail making decisions on the minimum age and whether the private sector or the government will be responsible for its distribution The Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says they do not intend to move forward on legalization of all drugs, but are very much focused on the control and legalization of marijuana because the current system is not working. Canadians overwhelmingly support the decision to legalize cannabis for recreational purposes, but there is one snag. It violates the three international drug treaties it has signed.
