Die US-Regierung plant, nordkoreanische Schiffe, die im Verdacht stehen, UN-Sanktionen zu unterlaufen, mit Hilfe von Verbündeten in Asien verstärkt auf hoher See zu stoppen und zu durchsuchen. "Washington has been talking to regional partners, including Japan, South Korea, Australia and Singapore, about coordinating a stepped-up crackdown that would go further than ever before in an attempt to squeeze Pyongyang’s use of seagoing trade to feed its nuclear missile program, several officials told Reuters. While suspect ships have been intercepted before, the emerging strategy would expand the scope of such operations but stop short of imposing a naval blockade on North Korea. Pyongyang has warned it would consider a blockade an act of war."

Seit Sonntag seien im von Rebellengruppen gehaltenen Ost-Ghouta bei Damaskus über 250 Menschen durch Artilleriebeschuss und Luftangriffe der syrischen Regierungstruppen getötet worden, berichten Ellen Francis und Angus McDowall. "The wave of air strikes, rocket fire and shelling has sparked international condemnation. France, a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council, described the bombardment as a serious violation of international humanitarian law. (...) 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'. (...) Rescuers said the air raids created 'a state of terror' among residents in eastern Ghouta, where the U.N. says nearly 400,000 people live. The pocket of satellite towns and farms has been under government siege since 2013. Factions in Ghouta fired mortars at Damascus on Tuesday, killing six people and injuring 28, Syrian state TV said. The army retaliated and pounded militant targets, according to the state news agency SANA."

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."

"But despite the transatlantic show of anger at Russia during the Munich Security Conference, Western officials and diplomats also acknowledged an uncomfortable truth: that Russia is critical to resolving many of the world’s worst conflicts. From eastern Ukraine to North Korea, Russia’s status as a nuclear power, its military intervention in Syria and its veto on the United Nations Security Council mean any diplomacy must ultimately involve Moscow, officials said. 'We can’t find a political solution without Russia,' Norwegian Defence Minister Frank Bakke Jensen told Reuters. 'We need to reach a point where we can work to find a political solution, and they must be central to that.'"

"Assad stands to gain while doing little. The arrival of reinforcements is likely to sustain Kurdish resistance, bog down the Turkish forces and prolong a conflict that is sapping the resources of military powers that rival him for control of Syrian territory.

In diesem Spezialreport berichtet Reuters detailliert über ein Massaker an zehn Angehörigen der Rohingya in Myanmar, an dem sich neben Regierungstruppen auch buddhistische Dorfbewohner beteiligt hätten. "On Sept. 2, Buddhist villagers and Myanmar troops killed 10 Rohingya men in Myanmar's restive Rakhine state. Reuters uncovered the massacre and has pieced together how it unfolded. During the reporting of this article, two Reuters journalists were arrested by Myanmar police. (...) Until now, accounts of the violence against the Rohingya in Rakhine state have been provided only by its victims. The Reuters reconstruction draws for the first time on interviews with Buddhist villagers who confessed to torching Rohingya homes, burying bodies and killing Muslims. This account also marks the first time soldiers and paramilitary police have been implicated by testimony from security personnel themselves. Members of the paramilitary police gave Reuters insider descriptions of the operation to drive out the Rohingya from Inn Din, confirming that the military played the lead role in the campaign."

Hyunjoo Jin und Christine Kim berichtet mit Blick über die bestehenden Sanktionsregelungen gegenüber Nordkorea über Komplikationen beim Ausrichten der Olympischen Spiele unter Beteiligung nordkoreanischer Sportler und Sportlerinnen. "Der kommunistische Norden, der wegen seiner Atom- und Raketentests isoliert ist und den USA mit Zerstörung droht, darf zwar Athleten in den Süden entsenden. 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. Davon betroffen sind auch die 22 Sportler aus Nordkorea."

"Initial contacts between the three European powers in Washington, European capitals and at the EU’s headquarters in Brussels suggest that Paris, London and Berlin will present a package of measures to the United States to allay Trump’s concerns about Iran but that do not reopen the nuclear accord. The strategy could include threatening Iran with targeted economic sanctions if it does not agree to curtail its ballistic weapons arsenal, which the West believes contains longer-range missiles potentially capable of carrying nuclear warheads."

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."

A U.N. system set up in May 2016 to ease delivery of commercial goods through the blockade has failed to ensure the Yemeni people get the supplies they need. The result is the effective isolation of Yemen, a nation of 28 million people where a quarter of the population is starving, according to the United Nations. The war has claimed 10,000 lives. Half a million children under the age of five are severely malnourished, and at least 2,135 people, most of them children, have died of cholera in the past six months."
