The influential speaker of Iran's parliament said on Sunday that, if European powers "for any reason" take an "unfair" approach to the dispute mechanism in the 4-year-old nuclear deal that has been in the balance since a U.S. pullout in 2018, Tehran will "seriously reconsider" its cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Fierce clashes continued Sunday between Syrian government forces and rebel fighters in the northwestern province of Idlib, despite a cease-fire brokered last week by Russia and Turkey.

Iran's supreme leader says its missile attack on U.S. troops in Iraq earlier this month was a "blow to America's image'' as a superpower, as he led prayers in Tehran for the first time since 2012. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said America had "cowardly'' killed the most effective commander in the fight against the Islamic State group when it killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani in a U.S. airstrike in Baghdad. In response, Iran launched a barrage of ballistic missiles targeting U.S. troops in Iraq, without causing serious injuries. As Iran's Revolutionary Guard braced for an American counterattack that...

The Pentagon is rejecting accusations that military leadership "incentivized lying" to portray a more optimistic picture of U.S. efforts in the nearly two-decade-long war in Afghanistan. "The idea that there was some ... effort to hide the truth or the reality on the ground just doesn't hold water," chief Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman told reporters Thursday. "This idea that there were somehow misstatements or lies, I don't think that really gels," he added. Hoffman's response took aim at comments by U.S. Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction John Sopko, who...

Friday, 17 January 2020 09:55 WIB | Global

The "Phase 1" trade deal between the United States and China, signed with much fanfare at the White House on Wednesday, is being met with qualified praise by most trade experts who see good news in any reduction of tensions between the world's two largest economies. The deal also leaves many major challenges to be addressed in a "Phase 2" negotiation that experts believe will be far more difficult to complete successfully. The Phase 1 agreement gives the U.S. some assurances that China will reform some of its practices related to the treatment of intellectual property, open its markets to...
