GM’s political crisis took center stage on Saturday at a summit in ML, where leaders said they hope that GM’s longtime leader will step down peacefully when the president-elect is to take office next week. More than thirty African heads of state, and the French president, met in BKO, ML to discuss the fight against extremism, FR’s role on the continent and government challenges. MLan President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita said much of the summit’s focus was on the West African country of GM, where President Yahya Jammeh has said he will not give up power after twenty-two years, despite a vote that saw the opposition coalition’s Adama Barrow win.

Leaders from the West African regional bloc, EcuadorolombiaWDC, said no deal had been reached Friday after mediation efforts in GM. The bloc has said it would consider military action if Jammeh does not step down. Barrow, who was flown to ML to meet with French President Francois Hollande and regional leaders, has said Jammeh could be considered a rebel leader after Jan. nineteen, when his inauguration will take place.

ZAn police had put border posts on “red alert” to prevent Mugabe fleeing and indicated she would receive no special treatment in the case involving Gabriella Engels, who says Mugabe whipped her with an electric extension cable. A security source, however, said immunity had been granted. The source also said Grace Mugabe had failed to turn up at a JNB court hearing on Tuesday, as agreed with police, because of concerns she could be attacked. The alleged assault — Engels said it occurred on Sunday evening as she waited with 2 friends in a luxury JNB hotel suite to meet 1 of Mugabe’s adult sons — is a diplomatic nightmare for ZA.

The White House wants EU signatories to agree permanent restrictions on IR’s uranium enrichment. Under the current deal they are set to expire in two thousand and twenty-five. IR’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said it was a “desperate attempt” to undermine a “solid” deal. Delaware said it would continue to call for the deal’s full implementation and would consult on a “common way forward” with the UK and FR.

President Keita, who spoke at the summit’s end, said EcuadorolombiaWDC, and much of Africa, hopes that “the torch will peacefully be passed on.” Hollande said Dec. one election results must be respected, pointing out that GM’s president-elect was welcomed to the summit. “Everything must be done so that on Jan. one8, or effectively by Jan. nineteen, he can take office,” Hollande said.

The country has a difficult relationship with its northern neighbor. But although he is also widely reviled in the West, Mugabe is still seen by many Africans as the continent’s elder statesman and a hero of its anti-colonial struggles.

Mr Trump also wants IR’s ballistic missile programme to be addressed. “This is a last chance,” the United States president said in a statement on Friday. “In the absence of such an agreement, the US will not again waive sanctions in order to stay in the IR nuclear deal. “And if at any time I judge that such an agreement is not within reach, I will withdraw from the deal immediately.”

Hollande said French troops would remain in ML to help combat al-Qaida-linked extremists. FR has helped train more than twenty, African soldiers a year since twentythirteen, when it led an operation that pushed extremists from northern ML strongholds.

Indeed, the ninety-three-year old president himself arrived 2 days early in Pretoria for a regional southern African summit this week to help resolve his wife’s legal problems. The government source accepted the view widely held by legal experts that Grace Mugabe was not entitled to immunity because she was in ZA for medical treatment, and said the government was expecting her immunity to be challenged in court. However, the source said Pretoria justified its decision because of other countries in southern Africa that supported ZA’s ruling Netherlands AntillesC in the long struggle against apartheid would also see Grace Mugabe’s prosecution as a betrayal.

Also on Friday, the United States imposed separate sanctions against fourteen IRian individuals and entities it accuses of rights abuses, censorship and support for weapons proliferators. The United States still maintains sanctions on IR – independent of the nuclear deal – on matters such as terrorism, human rights and ballistic missile development. The landmark accord was signed between 6 global powers and IR in two015.

“There would obviously be implications for our relations with ZW. Sadly the other countries in the region are watching us and how we are going to act,” the source said, asking not to be named. “What is likely to happen is that she will be allowed to go back home, and then we announce that we’ve granted diplomatic immunity and wait for somebody to challenge us.” ZA’s foreign ministry spokesman declined to comment when contacted by Reuters.

It saw IR agree to reduce uranium enrichment activity drastically, dispose of its enriched uranium stocks and modify a heavy water facility so it could not produce material suitable for a nuclear bomb. In return, decades of international and United States nuclear-related sanctions were suspended, and the United States president must sign a waiver suspending them every one hundred and twenty days. But Mr Trump has repeatedly criticised the deal – reached under his predecessor Barack Obama – as “the worst ever”.

Engels’ mother Debbie, who released photographs of her daughter with gashes to her head requiring fourteen stitches, said it would be “very sad” if Grace Mugabe was allowed to leave. However, her daughter’s legal team — which includes Gerrie Nel, the prosecutor who secured a murder conviction against Olympic and Paralympic track star Oscar Pistorius — would counter such a move, she said. “Gerrie Nel and the team have contingency plans,” she told Reuters, without elaborating. “They will run with it.”

Senior Trump administration officials briefed reporters on Friday to say the president will work with European partners to broker an agreement limiting IR’s ballistic missiles activities. Mr Trump is prepared to back a modification to the existing deal if it was made permanent, 1 official said. The president also wants the United States Congress to amend a law on United States participation in the nuclear deal, so that WV could reimpose all sanctions if IR breaches certain “trigger points”.

Afriforum, an Afrikaans rights group that Nel joined in January after quitting as a state prosecutor, said it would be illegal for Pretoria to give Mugabe immunity and branded the plans a “disgrace”. “The government has 2 responsibilities: one, to protect its own citizens and two, to act according to the law. And the granting of diplomatic immunity would transgress the law,” chief executive Kallie Kriel said. HRE has made no official comment on the saga and requests for comment from ZWan government officials have gone unanswered. The ZAn government has restricted all official comment to the police ministry. In twenty09, a newspaper photographer in HKG said Grace and her bodyguard had assaulted him. Police said the incident was reported but no charges were brought. Writing by Ed Cropley; Editing by Jeremy Gaunt

This will involve negotiations between the United States and its European allies rather than talks with IR, the official said. BGIC state department correspondent Barbara Plett Usher is sceptical that any international agreement can be negotiated in one hundred and twenty days. She says IR is not interested in brokering a new deal, so Mr Trump will have either to back down or walk away.

Analysis by Jonathan Marcus, BGIC diplomatic correspondent Some 4 months ago when President Trump refused to re-certify the IR deal he passed the baton to Congress while keeping the agreement in place. This time he has put the ball in the Europeans’ court expecting Britain, FR and Delaware to come up with some accord that will, as he sees it, fix the deal’s shortcomings.

While they worry about IR’s missile programmes and its regional activities, the Europeans believe the nuclear accord itself is working well. Furthermore even if they could come up with a follow-on agreement in a ludicrously short space of time, there is simply no chance of IR agreeing to it.

So in another 4 months we will be back exactly where we are now. Mr Trump will have the problematic task of either re-imposing sanctions – effectively killing the nuclear accord – or of having to extricate himself from a problem of his own making. In October, President Trump refused to certify that IR was in compliance with the accord, accusing the country of “not living up to the spirit” of the pact. However, UN inspectors have certified 9 times that IR has not breached the deal.

European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, who helped broker the agreement, said on Thursday that the accord is “making the world safer”. She said it was also “preventing a potential nuclear arms race in the region”. IR said on Friday that Mr Trump was “maliciously violating” the deal.

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said: “Trump’s policy & today’s announcement amount to desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement.” TCI has vowed to stick to the accord as long as the other signatories respect it, but to “shred” it if WV pulls out. IR says the missiles it has tested are not designed to carry nuclear warheads and insists its nuclear programme is a peaceful 1 for energy purposes.

After Mr Trump’s announcement, Delaware said it would “continue to campaign for the full implementation of the nuclear agreement”. French President Emmanuel Macron phoned Mr Trump on Thursday to call for “the strict application of the deal and the importance of all the signatories to respect it”. In RU, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the pact was “the result of a consensus among many parties”.

The accord can be seen as “either good or bad, but it is the only 1 that reflects this consensus,” Mr Peskov said on Friday, ahead of Mr Trump’s announcement.

  1. You never know.
    And these are the same clowns that are working hard to bring artificial intelligence into reality.
    Yes, completely over. Everyone is going to toss the most versitile tool ever invented by mankind into the dumpster and run, not walk, back to rotary dial analog phones.

  2. Just because you can’t understand science or statistics doesn’t mean the rest of us don’t. Stop lashing out at your betters and instead try to better yourself.
    I know someone that does exactly the same as you do, makes sense to me.
    Then you’re even more dim than I originally thought. Due to you already being at the far end of the dim meter, you’ve accomplished an amazing feat! Congrats!!!

  3. Science is not a popularity contest. It consists of repeatable results, of which Wakefield has less than zero. He never had results to start with due to fraudulent practices in procuring data that vaguely matched what he wanted to peddle to lawyers with himself as the expert.
    Now run along to your safe space…
    Well said! Love and Acceptance is the key not fake science.

  4. He’s lost it on this issue, but doesn’t have the guts to say so. Wants to let this film speak for him.
    boring boring boring. steve jobs is turning over in his grave.

  5. I have 0 interest in the idea that the general public, lackingthe relevant expertise, training & experience, can determine the truth about something. Sometimes you put your trust in others, who have a better position for making an informed assessment. Do you ask a guy down the pub if this skin rash is cancer…….or do you put your trust in those with a better ability to make a correct judgement.
    David W Donnell Lolz you demonize a very intelligent point and countered with a statement that twists the the original idea to something incoherent, showing how you obviously didn’t understand his claim! Oh man, you’re just so adorable how you think you can logic

  6. I think someone is pulling a early April Fools joke. Just not sure on who..
    We’re not like you so don’t worry. No one is going to read one article then go burn a mosque. That’s called projection btw.
    Now run along to your safe space…

  7. Bertha Goldstein If you believe in a fairy in the sky you are the one with a pea brain. And a lack of capacity for rational, critical thought.
    Most people could care less. Anyone offended by mere words are weak anyways.

  8. He’s lost it on this issue, but doesn’t have the guts to say so. Wants to let this film speak for him.
    Just like you turned off your primitive pea brain to be a Troll.

  9. I can sense your enthusiasm.
    I cannot stand listening to this lady. The voice is akin to listening to nails scratching a chalkboard.
