Trump: British Ambassador 'a Very Stupid Guy'
Wednesday, 10 July 2019 12:41 WIB | Global

U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday called British ambassador Kim Darroch "a very stupid guy," a new taunt aimed at undercutting the envoy's assessment that Trump is "inept" and "incompetent." "The wacky Ambassador that the U.K. foisted upon the United States is not someone we are thrilled with," Trump said on Twitter. The U.S. leader said Darroch, Britain's top diplomat in Washington since 2016, "should speak to his country, and Prime Minister [Theresa] May, about their failed Brexit negotiation, and not be upset with my criticism of how badly it was handled. I told @theresa_may how to...

Monday, 8 July 2019 23:53 WIB | Global

Iran said it had passed 4.5% enrichment, breaching the 3.67% limit set in the accord aimed at restraining Tehran's nuclear weapons development. Iran said it could consider enriching uranium to 20% as the next step in its move to back away from its commitments under the nuclear deal, unless it gets the help it wants from the accord's other signatories to overcome the crippling effect of U.S. economic sanctions imposed by U.S. President Donald Trump after he withdrew from the pact last year. Uranium enriched to 5% is sufficient to produce fuel for nuclear power plants, but still far below...
