US Secuity doubt, on Huawei exits

US companies can sell their equipment to Huawei: Donald Trump

Many media ask the chapter of doubt on Huawei is over not yet as the answer to the question lies in US companies got an access not vice versa.

US President Donald Trump has said American companies could sell equipment to Chinese telecom giant Huawei, indicating a potentially softer position on a key sticking point in the US-China trade war. President Trump made this comment hours after sealing a tariff truce with Chinese President Xi Jinping. Talking to reporters in Osaka, Trump said they had discussed about equipment and there was no great national security problem figured in the talks. 

It was not immediately clear whether Trump’s comment marked a material change in the stance toward Huawei, which has essentially been barred on national security grounds from accessing crucial American technology or operating in the US market.

The US fears that systems built by Huawei, the world’s telecom giant, could be used by China’s government for espionage via built-in secret security back doors. Huawei vigorously denies that and says the US has never provided proof to substantiate it.

Asked by reporters in Osaka what was discussed regarding Huawei, a Chinese foreign ministry official said he did not know, but that China would welcome lifting the US ban.

Spain hit by severe heatwave

Spain hit by more wildfires as heatwave continues

BBCSpain was hit by more wildfires as temperatures remained sky-high in the Europe-wide heatwave. Firefighters finally managed to contain another blaze in the country they had been tackling for nearly 72 hours. 

Authorities in Madrid said today that a fire that started Friday evening in the central town of Almorox had already burnt at least 1,600 hectares spilling over into the Madrid region and forcing the evacuation of a village. Another blaze near the city of Toledo some 60 kilometres away also forced the evacuation of 22 residents, as water-dropping aircraft assisted firefighters on the ground amid strong winds.

Meanwhile, a major blaze in the northeastern region of Catalonia had finally been contained and was in the process of being stabilised. The fires come as Europe is hit by a major heat wave, with temperatures in some parts of France reaching a record high. Spain’s weather agency said temperatures today would be above 36 degrees Celsius in a large part of the country, and would likely reach or go over 40 degrees C in the centre including Madrid and south. In parts of the northeast, meanwhile, they were expected to soar to 42 degrees C.

Meteorologists blame a blast of hot air from northern Africa for scorching temperatures early in the European summer. The heatwave is due to die down from tomorrow. 


Trump arrives in South Korea

Trump arrives in South Korea after inviting Kim Jong Un to Demilitarized Zone

US President Donald Trump has landed in South Korea for an impromptu meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in the Demilitarized Zone that divides the two Koreas. 

Mr Trump earlier tweeted from Japan, where he was attending a G-20 summit, that he would be willing to meet Kim at the Demilitarized Zone just to shake hand and say Hello.

The two leaders first met in Singapore last year, the first ever encounter between a leader of North Korea and a sitting US President. The summit produced a vaguely-worded pledge about denuclearisation. Their second meeting in Hanoi, Vietnam four months ago collapsed without any agreement. 

Since the Hanoi meet, the contact between the two sides has been minimal. But the two leaders have exchanged a series of letters. The Demilitarized Zone has been a regular stop for US Presidents visiting South Korea. The four-kilometre-wide zone, running for 250 kilometres, is where the front line lay when the Korean War ended with a ceasefire. It is described as the world’s last Cold War frontier.


US, Taliban open fresh talks to end war in Doha

US, Taliban open fresh negotiations in Doha on ending war

The United States and the Taliban have opened fresh negotiations in Doha. The talks mark the seventh round of negotiations aimed at ending Afghanistan’s longest war. 

The negotiations have, so far, centred on four issues – counter-terrorism, presence of foreign troop presence, an intra-Afghan dialogue and a permanent ceasefire.

US officials previously said, they are hoping for a deal before the upcoming Afghan presidential elections in September, which have already been delayed twice. 

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who paid an unannounced visit to Kabul on Tuesday, said he hoped for a peace deal with the Taliban before 1st September.

A potential deal would see the US agreeing to withdraw its troops after more than 17 years in Afghanistan, in return for the Taliban guaranteeing the country never again becomes a safe haven for violent extremist groups, as was the case with Al-Qaeda before the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Abe, Putin discuss peace-treaty negotiations

The leaders of Japan and Russia are sitting down after the G20 summit. Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe hopes the meeting will push forward negotiations toward a peace treaty. The sticking point has been a disagreement over four Russian-held islands claimed by Japan.

Abe said, “I would like to talk about peace-treaty negotiations which are now underway between our countries’ foreign ministers, as well as between the chief negotiators. I also want to discuss cooperation in a wide range of areas and the global challenges.”

President Vladimir Putin said, “I am delighted to be able to talk about various issues with you today. They include peace-treaty negotiations.”

This is the 26th time Abe and Putin have met. The last time was in January in Moscow.

Foreign ministers from the two sides have failed to bridge the gap in their negotiations.

The countries never signed a peace treaty after World War Two because of the territorial dispute.

Russia controls the four islands. Japan claims them.
The Japanese government maintains the islands are an inherent part of its territory. It says they were illegally occupied after World War Two.
