Published 2019-11-06 13:30:39 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, Brazil, Headline-News, Latin-America, United-States

BRASILIA – Two years later, the US continued to close its market for beef from Brazil in a demonstration that President Donald Trump’s diplomacy with colleague Jair Bolsonaro is a new “betrayal” of an “unrequited love,” according to analysts. The end of the embargo on Brazilian beef was on Bolsonaro’s agenda at his first meeting with Trump at the White House in March this year. Although the delegation has returned to Brasilia with some promises in its baggage, so far only a few concessions requested by the US have actually materialized. US-born and naturalized Brazilian, University of Brasilia (UnB) emeritus… Continue ->

MOSCOW – The wars of the future will be much more dynamic and unlikely to be fought in large-scale direct confrontations, as during the great wars fought in the 21st century, said Russian Major General. The war of the future must adapt to modern battlefield conditions, said Maj. Gen. Chebotarev, commander of the unified Amur contingent in Russia’s eastern military district. “The armed conflicts of recent years show that modern warfare will be dynamic, highly technological, and will prevent large-scale direct battles. Probably there will be no trench warfare in classical forms, as we used to see in World War… Continue ->

HAVANA – Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez accused the United States of exerting pressure on Latin American countries to oppose the United Nations draft resolution against the US-imposed economic blockade on Cuba. “The US authorities have been carrying out different actions of pressures and blackmail to erode the voting pattern in support to the draft resolution that Cuba has been presenting to the United Nations General Assembly which calls for an end to the economic, commercial and financial blockade against my country”, Rodriguez said on Monday, according to RIA Novosti. “These pressures have been particularly targeted against the Latin American… Continue ->

China’s Development of the Russian Far East Can Improve EU-Moscow Relations

Published 2019-11-06 11:30:19 by Paul Antonopoulos in China, Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia

Russia’s Far East Investment and Export Support Agency investment manager Vasily Libo revealed on November 1 that China’s foreign investment in the Far East advanced development zone accounted for about 59.1% of foreign investments in the region. This massive investment into the Far East is a strategic move by China as it aims to fully exploit the riches and benefits that this region of Russia can bring. As the Russian Far East has a huge investment potential, especially with materials, natural resources, fisheries, and tourism, China aims to take advantage of the mostly underdeveloped region. The region is not only… Continue ->

The plans were revealed by The Wall Street Journal, which cited government and industry officials familiar with the matter late on Sunday. “Restoring the trust of… Continue ->

Published 2019-11-06 09:00:45 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Isis, Mena, Nato, Politics, Russia, Syria, Turkey, United-States

MOSCOW – The Russian Foreign Ministry stressed on Tuesday that the US decision to establish military bases to “secure” the Syrian oil fields is illegitimate, as doing so violates international law. “Any actions that aim to bolster the illegal military presence of the United States [in Syria] go against the international law and are unacceptable from our point of view,” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Vershinin told reporters, according to Sputnik. American troops pulled back from several areas as Turkey launched its Operation Peace Spring on 9 October, commencing an offensive against Washington-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
