Reuters berichtet aus Seoul, wie das Gipfeltreffen Donald Trumps mit Kim Jong-un in Singapur von der Bevölkerung in Südkorea verfolgt wurde. "As North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump shook hands at a historic summit in Singapore on Tuesday, South Koreans stopped in their tracks to watch the event unfurl on live television. (...) South Koreans have been largely supportive of the summit since it was announced, with a poll in April showing the border village of Panmunjom as their top preference for the venue. (...) Despite the excitement many expressed about watching Trump and Kim on television, some South Koreans voiced doubts and indifference regarding Tuesday’s summit. 'Peace isn’t bad but I didn’t have that much of an interest because I was busy working,' said Maeng Yeong-hwan, a 32-year-old office worker in Seoul, noting he had more of an interest in the soccer World Cup."

The two are due to meet on Tuesday on the resort island of Sentosa for their high-stakes summit, the first-ever talks between a U.S. and North Korean leader and the culmination of a head-spinning diplomatic dance."

Dem Chef der iranischen Atomenergieorganisation zufolge hat Teheran damit begonnen, Vorbereitungen für eine schnelle Wiederaufnahme des Programms zur Urananreicherung zu treffen. "Iran has begun preparations to boost its uranium enrichment capacity, its nuclear chief said on Tuesday, adding to pressure on European powers trying to save a nuclear accord with Tehran in peril after a U.S. withdrawal. (...) Salehi said this did not violate the nuclear deal but that it marked an increase in the pace of the nuclear programme. 'If we were progressing normally, it would have taken six or seven years, but this will now be ready in the coming weeks and months,' he said. (...) Salehi’s comments Tuesday appeared to be a warning to the remaining signatories of possible consequences if the deal were to collapse. European powers still back the deal but have concerns over Iran’s ballistic missile programme and its influence in the Middle East. Iran says the two issues are non-negotiable."

Die gemäßigt islamistische Ennahda-Partei ist aus den ersten freien Kommunalwahlen in Tunesien offenbar als Sieger hervorgegangen. "Tunisia has been hailed as the only democratic success of the Arab Spring, because it toppled long-serving autocrat Zine El Abidine Ben Ali without triggering major violence. But enthusiasm for democratic change has long given way to anger over stubbornly low living standards, which have driven some Tunisians to make the dangerous sea crossing to Europe in search of work or have prompted a few to turn to militant Islam. 'I intended to boycott, but I changed my mind at the last moment,' Mohamed Ali Abadi, told Reuters after leaving a polling station. 'We are facing a lot of economic problems but will continue our way in a real democracy'. Voter turnout was 33.7 percent, according to the election commission."

Der syrischen Regierung wird erneut der Einsatz von Chemiewaffen vorgeworfen. In der Stadt Douma in Ost-Ghouta sind den syrischen Hilfsorganisationen Weißhelme und Syrian American Medical Society zufolge 49 Menschen nach einem Luftangriff gestorben, mehr als 500 Menschen seien mit Symptomen einer Chlorgasvergiftung behandelt worden. "In one video shared by activists, the lifeless bodies of around a dozen children, women and men, some of them with foam at the mouth, were seen. 'Douma city, April 7 ... there is a strong smell here,' a voice can be heard saying. Reuters could not independently verify the reports. Douma is in the eastern Ghouta region near Damascus. Assad has won back control of nearly all of eastern Ghouta in a Russian-backed military campaign that began in February, leaving just Douma in rebel hands."

Auch die USA haben sich der koordinierten Ausweisung von russischen Diplomaten durch eine Reihe westlicher Länder angeschlossen. Nach Ansicht von Phil Stewart und Matt Spetalnick wird damit eine härtere Haltung gegenüber Moskau bekräftigt, die sich in Washington jenseits der Rhetorik Donald Trumps bereits seit längerem abgezeichnet habe. "While President Donald Trump’s conciliatory rhetoric toward Moscow has dominated headlines, officials at the U.S. State Department, Pentagon and White House made a series of lower-profile decisions over the past year to counter Russia around the world - from Afghanistan to North Korea to Syria. (...) the Trump administration’s actions run counter to widespread perception, fueled by the president’s own statements, that Trump has softened America’s stance toward Russian President Vladimir Putin amid a U.S. investigation into Moscow’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election."

In der Schlacht um Ost-Ghouta stehen die Rebellen Reuters zufolge vor einer schweren Niederlage. In Idlib werden demnach bereits Vorbereitungen zur Errichtung neuer Flüchtlingslager getroffen. "Russland garantiere den Kämpfern und ihren Familien freies Geleit durch einen Korridor, teilte das Verteidigungsministerium in Moskau mit. Die Männer dürften persönliche Waffen mitnehmen. Ein Ziel wurde nicht genannt. (...) Beobachter gehen davon aus, dass die Rebellen in Regionen nahe der türkischen Grenze im Norden Syriens ziehen dürfen.

Parts of the suburbs of Damascus, which are held by the terrorists, are not covered by the ceasefire and clean-up (operations) will continue there,' the semi-official news agency Tasnim quoted Iran’s military chief of staff General Mohammad Baqeri as saying. The U.N. Security Council on Saturday demanded a 30-day truce across Syria, as one of the deadliest air assaults of the seven-year war pounded the rebel enclave of eastern Ghouta outside Damascus.

Panos Moumtzis, the United Nations’ humanitarian coordinator for Syria, on Tuesday condemned the bombing of five hospitals in eastern Ghouta and said intentional attacks on medical facilities 'may amount to war crimes'.

US-Präsident Trump hat die Europäer am 12. Januar ultimativ aufgefordert, sich bis zum 12. Mai entschieden für eine "Verbesserung" des Atomvertrags mit dem Iran einzusetzen, um einen faktischen amerikanischen Ausstieg zu verhindern. Eine vertrauliche Nachricht des US-Außenministeriums hat diese Forderung Reuters zufolge nun etwas abgeschwächt, um ein Entgegenkommen der Europäer zu ermöglichen. "The cable’s characterization of what the United States wants from the Europeans, which has not been previously reported, sets a lower standard than laid out by Trump in January and so might facilitate a meeting of the minds, five current European and four former U.S. officials said. (...) European officials said in interviews they did not know if the view laid out in the State Department diplomatic cable - sent to U.S. diplomats in London, Paris, Berlin and Brussels to deliver to their counterparts - will prevail in Washington. (...) That confusion is caused, in part, by disagreements among different parts of the U.S. administration and the fundamental unpredictability of what Trump — who has at times rejected the advice of his senior national security officials — may ultimately decide."

Manche Experten hoffen sogar auf eine Entspannung des Konflikts. Doch die harten Sanktionen gegen den Norden bereiten den Organisatoren Kopfschmerzen, weil sie viele praktische Probleme aufwerfen. So kommen alle Sportler in den Genuss von Vergünstigungen - werden etwa von Nike mit dem neuesten Outfit eingekleidet und bekommen ein rund 750 Euro teures Samsung-Smartphone geschenkt. Wirklich alle der knapp 3000 Athleten? Nicht ganz: Denn US-Firmen wie Nike dürfen keinen Handel mit Nordkorea betreiben und Luxusgüter wie kostspielige Smartphones sind auch tabu.

Hyonhee Shin und James Pearson zufolge deutet einiges darauf hin, dass Nordkoreas Machthaber Kim Jong Un seit seinem Amtsantritt vor sechs Jahren eine langfristige Strategie verfolgt, um den eigenen Machterhalt zu sichern. "In 2013, Kim outlined a new policy: The 'byungjin line,' or parallel development, to combine the nuclear buildup and economic growth. A nuclear deterrent is essential to that, says Thae Yong-ho, North Korea’s former deputy ambassador to London, who staged a high-profile defection to South Korea in 2016. The threat of absolute destruction makes a nuclear bomb a 'poor man’s weapon' with which to tighten control of the country and ensure long-term rule, Thae said. 'Once he has assumed control of usable nuclear weapons, he has more room to allocate resources more flexibly, and allocate the military forces for civilian construction,' said Thae."
