Thirty world leaders sign deal at New Silk Road summit

24 Views0 Comments

China's President Xi Jinping has urged world leaders to reject protectionism and embrace globalisation. His call came on the final day of a two-day forum in Beijing promoting the New Silk Road trade project, China's bold plan to create new trading routes across parts of the developing world. But in a setback to that effort, some EU representatives are refusing to sign a communique marking the end of the summit. They want it to contain guarantees about allowing free tenders for all the associated infrastructure projects. Among those attending the summit was Russian President Vladimir Putin, who described Sunday's missile test by North Korea as "counterproductive and dangerous".

Ex-FBI Director’s hometown reacts to Trump’s dismissal of James Comey

51 Views0 Comments

In the aftermath of President Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, patrons at the oldest bar in Allendale, New Jersey, sat down to discuss Comey's career and ties to his hometown. Many remembered his family's longtime contribution to the town. His father Brien Comey, now in his 80s, was an Allendale councilman and real estate executive. The owner of the Allendale Bar and Grill, Chris Kunisch, recalled receiving Sunday School lessons at the local Catholic church from Comey's mother, who passed away several years ago. Another patron sees Comey's father in church every Sunday. Comey, who is 6-foot-8, previously played basketball for Northern Highlands Regional High School, one of the most highly ranked public schools in the state. He returned to his alma mater to celebrate the school's 50th anniversary in 2015. "Allendale certainly hasn't seen the last of Jim [James Comey], and I don't think this country, or for that matter this world, has seen the last of Jim Comey," said Kunisch.

Henrique Capriles: Venezuela is not all about Maduro – Talk to Al Jazeera

27 Views0 Comments

Once South America's richest country, Venezuela has been torn by mounting civil unrest and economic collapse. People are so hungry that scenes of civilians rummaging through rubbish on the streets of Caracas have become commonplace. Infant and maternal mortality rates are soaring as a result of hyperinflation, shortages of food, basic goods and medicine. The country with the world's largest oil reserves continues to plunge into an unprecedented economic and humanitarian crisis. The heir to Hugo Chavez's Bolivarian revolution - President Nicolas Maduro - blames low oil prices and a so-called economic war waged by domestic and foreign enemies. Last year, Maduro successfully blocked a recall referendum, but in April, when he attempted to take over the opposition controlled legislature - the only institution not controlled by his party - he unleashed a seemingly unstoppable wave of protests and international condemnation. Scores have been killed in almost daily demonstrations and hundreds arrested. Many are now being brought before military rather than civilian courts. Maduro has also responded to relentless calls for early elections by unilaterally calling for a constitutional assembly to rewrite the constitution. He claims this will guarantee peace and counter protesters he labels as terrorists. However, it appears Maduro is further enraging opponents who see the move as a power grab in order to consolidate a directorial regime. Among those opponents is opposition leader Henrique Capriles, the governer of Miranda state who nearly defeated Maduro in the 2013 presidential elections. Last month, the state controlled courts proceeded to ban Capriles from running for office for the next 15 years. In spite of this, Capriles still believes that after 17 years of failed attempts to end Venezuela's Bolivarian revolution, victory is finally near. However, he does insist that Venezuela's dismal economy and the president Maduro's dwindling popularity have created the perfect storm. Henrique Capriles talks to Al Jazeera.
