dlib-peace-plan-idUSKCN1LY2LO

Das Gelingen der russisch-türkischen Einigung im Streit um das Vorgehen in der syrischen Idlib-Provinz wird vor allem vom Verhalten der dort vorherrschenden Dschihadisten abhängen, schreiben Tulay Karadeniz und Dominic Evans. "For the foreign jihadists, Idlib is the last haven in Syria after President Bashar al-Assad, backed by his allies Russia and Iran, reversed years of rebel gains and drove his opponents from remaining pockets in southern and western parts of the country. 'The main problem is the foreign fighters, they have nowhere to go,' said Sinan Ulgen, a former Turkish diplomat and analyst with Carnegie Europe. (...) An insurgent source in Idlib said there were different views emerging within Tahrir al-Sham over whether to cooperate. The group’s stance is crucial because once its decision-making Shura Council rules on the issue, Tahrir al-Sham wields enough power to impose its will on other jihadist fighters in Idlib, including foreigners, the source said. 'If there is an agreement between Tahrir al-Sham and Turkey, the matter will proceed easily,' the source said."

Eine Gruppe republikanischer US-Senatoren will irakische Milizen mit Verbindungen zum Iran mit Sanktionen belegen, um den Einfluss Teherans in Irak zurückzudrängen. "Among other things, the bill, whose text was seen by Reuters, would impose terrorism-related sanctions on Iranian-controlled militias and require the U.S. Secretary of State to publish and maintain a list of armed groups receiving assistance from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, or IRGC. (...) Three mortar shells landed inside Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone just after midnight local time on Friday, the first such attack in several years in the area, which houses parliament, government buildings and many foreign embassies. On Tuesday, the United States warned Iran that it would 'respond swiftly and decisively' to any attacks by its allies in Iraq that resulted in injury to Americans or damage to U.S. facilities."

Das Pentagon hat beschlossen, Finanzhilfen in Höhe von 300 Millionen US-Dollar an Pakistan endgültig zu streichen. Phil Stewart und Idrees Ali berichten, dass Islamabad aus Sicht der USA nicht entschieden genug gegen extremistische Gruppen im eigenen Land vorgeht. "The so-called Coalition Support Funds were part of a broader suspension in aid to Pakistan announced by President Donald Trump at the start of the year, when he accused Pakistan of rewarding past assistance with 'nothing but lies & deceit.' The Trump administration says Islamabad is granting safe haven to insurgents who are waging a 17-year-old war in neighboring Afghanistan, a charge Pakistan denies. But U.S. officials had held out the possibility that Pakistan could win back that support if it changed its behavior. (...) The Pentagon’s decision showed that the United States, which has sought to change Pakistani behavior, is still increasing pressure on Pakistan’s security apparatus. It also underscored that Islamabad has yet to deliver the kind of change sought by Washington."

"Through a network of fake news websites and fraudulent social media personas spread across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google Plus and YouTube, the Iranian-linked campaign pushed narratives in line with the country’s interests. The campaign was aimed at users in the United States, Britain, Latin America and Middle East up through this month, according to an analysis by the cybersecurity company FireEye Inc (FEYE.O), which first spotted the behavior. (...) The technology companies variously said they linked the accounts to Iran based on user phone numbers, email addresses, website registration records and the timing of account activity matching Iranian business hours. FireEye expressed 'moderate confidence' about the Iranian origins, but said it has not been able to tie the accounts back to a specific organization or individuals."

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-apps-manafort-commentary/commentary-the-messy-meaning-of-the-manafort-
and-cohen-cases-idUSKCN1L702Y

Peter Apps analysiert die möglichen politischen Konsequenzen der spektakulären Gerichtsverfahren gegen die früheren Trump-Vertrauten Paul Manafort und Michael Cohen. Es deute einiges darauf hin, dass die Ermittlungen von FBI-Sonderermittler Robert Mueller, die aufgrund der angeblichen Russland-Verbindungen Donald Trumps eröffnet wurden, ohne eindeutiges Ergebnis zu Ende gehen werden. Ob Trump sich irgendwann wegen anderer Vergehen verantworten müsse, bleibe dagegen offen. "Neither case may provide Mueller with direct proof that there was deliberate collusion between Russia and the Trump presidential campaign, but they were clear signs of just how vulnerable those around the president are to financial charges around fraud and tax evasion in particular. Jail time for Manafort and Cohen now seems all but inevitable unless the president can find a way to pardon them, and that seems unlikely without considerable political risk. The Cohen plea in particular seems to increase the chances that charges of financial irregularities may yet be laid at the door of Trump himself. (...) To Trump, these may look like confrontations in which raw political realism outguns legal niceties. He knows removal through impeachment remains unlikely. Even if the Democrats dominate the House of Representatives in November and start the process, they are much less likely to be able to do so in the Senate – which is where any such charges would ultimately be decided."

Die US-Regierung will das offizielle Ende des Koreakrieges erst nach Abschluss der Verhandlungen über das nordkoreanische Atomwaffenprogramm erklären. Diese Position stößt Reuters zufolge auch in Südkorea auf Kritik. "'Broadly speaking, one side wants denuclearisation first, normalization of relations later, and the other wants normalization of relations first, then denuclearisation later,' said Christopher Green, a senior advisor at the International Crisis Group. (...) While South Korean officials say they are committed to the full denuclearisation of North Korea, they have shown more flexibility in the timing of a peace agreement than their U.S. allies. South Korea’s Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon said on Tuesday it is possible to declare an end to war this year. 'We are in consultations with the North and the United States in that direction,' he told a parliamentary session, adding that a three-way declaration would be part of an initial phase of denuclearisation. China says it open to participating in the process."

Der Kampf zwischen der von Saudi-Arabien angeführten Militärkoalition und den Huthi-Rebellen um die Küstenstadt Hodeidah in Jemen befindet sich Reuters zufolge aktuell in einer Pattsituation. "A Saudi-led coalition has made no major gains in its offensive to wrest control of Yemen’s Hodeidah port from the Iran-aligned Houthis, leaving it without the decisive increase in leverage it had sought against the group in U.N.-sponsored peace efforts. (...) The situation illustrates the daunting challenge faced by the coalition in seeking to take control of Hodeidah port in the absence of a political solution. The Houthis, who control the most populated areas of Yemen including the capital Sanaa, are adept at guerrilla warfare. Houthi fighters have been harassing UAE-led forces near the airport and on the coastal road that the coalition uses to resupply its forces from military bases on the western coast."

"The U.S. administration has previously demanded that North Korea agree to abandon its entire nuclear program before it could expect any relief from tough international sanctions. Ahead of the Singapore summit, Pompeo said Trump would reject anything short of 'complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization.' But following talks on Sunday between U.S. envoy Sung Kim and North Korean counterparts to set up Pompeo’s latest Pyongyang visit, this 'CVID' mantra appears suddenly to have disappeared from the U.S. State Department lexicon. It says pressure will remain until North Korea denuclearizes, but in statements this week, has redefined the U.S. goal as 'the final, fully verified denuclearization of (North Korea) as agreed to by Chairman Kim.'"
