“Unprepared for reality”: Weber sees the problem of the European Union in the “Sauvage” incident

“Unprepared for reality”
Weber sees the EU problem in ‘Sofagate’ incident

After the diplomatic failure in Ankara, the president of the European People’s Party (EPP) Weber strongly criticized the President of the European Union Commission von der Leyen and the President of the Council Michel: One expects unity from senior politicians, and especially towards autocrats. But on foreign policy, the EU has to do some catch-up.

The European Christian Social Union politician, Manfred Weber, criticized the appearance of the European Union leaders on their recent visit to Turkey. This is another warning sign that the EU’s foreign policy is not ready to face the hard realities, the EPP leader said after a meeting of leaders of EU parliaments.

Weber added that unity is expected from the top politicians representing the European Union in the world. “Especially when you are dealing with dictators and dictators – politicians who fuel conflict rather than compromise – the European Union should appear strong and united in all circumstances.”

European Union Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and Council President Charles Michel visited Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan last week and promised him closer cooperation. Excitement over the seating arrangement prevailed at the meeting: Erdoan only offered Michel a chair next to him, and von der Leyen was forced to sit on a sofa to the side and looked deluded. Michel and von der Leyen presented a report to the summit of the European Union Parliament on Tuesday.

Council Chairman Michel is under supervision?

Michel has been criticized for having accepted the seating arrangement requirements during public appearances and has not advocated equal treatment by der Leyens. According to the European Union Commission, Michel von der Leyen has now made clear that it will not allow such a situation again. Michel expressed his regret.

Leader of the left-wing parliamentary group Martin Shirdiwan said the incident in Ankara casts doubt on Michel’s suitability for his position as speaker of the assembly. “Michel is actually trying me. In terms of foreign policy, he let Erdogan pull himself out.”

For some strange reason, a homeless man in England has confessed to murder after nearly 38 years. “You know what, I’m homeless, I won’t sleep on the street anymore,” the 58-year-old said when he turned himself in to police. This was announced by the Royal Prosecution Service in London.

The man pleaded guilty in court on Friday for the murder of a 50-year-old man in December 1983. He killed him with a marble ashtray when he was disturbed by a comment from the other. Sentencing is scheduled for October 13.

The case was filed in 1985. But that changed about 35 years later. In the early morning of July 28, 2020, a tramp threw stones at a police station in London.

When an officer appeared, he confessed to Mann. During the investigation, officials were able to identify the DNA that was found on the cigarette butt at the crime scene of the alleged perpetrator. (dpa/ary)

Peace treaty with Seoul?: North Korea welcomes push to end war

A peace treaty with Seoul?
North Korea welcomes efforts to end war

The Korean War was about 70 years ago, but the two countries on the peninsula are still officially at war. The government in Pyongyang now describes South Korea’s proposal to negotiate a peace treaty as an “excellent idea” — with some reservations.

North Korea is ready to resume talks with South Korea under certain conditions. The influential sister of North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un, Kim Yo Jong, described the renewed attempt by South Korean President Moon Jae-in to declare an official end to the Korean War (1950-1953) as a “fantastic and excellent idea”.

At the same time, South Korea has been accused of provoking North Korea in the past and has repeatedly criticized it. Kim was quoted by state media as saying that if South Korea drops its hostile stance, Pyongyang may have “constructive discussions” on developing the relationship.

During the general debate at the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Tuesday, Moon called for the resumption of talks with largely isolated neighbor North Korea as soon as possible. He also suggested that the two Koreas meet with the United States and perhaps four of them with China to officially declare the end of the Korean War after a cease-fire agreement in 1953. The Korean Peninsula is still at war under international law because a peace treaty has not yet been reached.

South and North Korea reopened their official communication links in July after a long radio silence. However, North Korea has stopped responding to calls from South Korea to protest joint South Korean-US military exercises in August. North Korea is under severe international sanctions for its nuclear weapons program. Negotiations between the United States and North Korea over its nuclear program have made no progress for more than two and a half years.

An armed man opened fire in a supermarket in Tennessee, USA, killing at least one person. The accident occurred in the small town of Collierville in the early afternoon. According to preliminary findings, the shooter shot himself, the city police chief, Dale Land, said at a press conference.

When the special forces entered the building, they found several wounded. Then the officers moved from room to room to evacuate employees and clients. Lane reported that people locked themselves in offices or hid in refrigerators from the attacker. An employee was rescued from the rooftop.

“I’ve been in this field for 34 years and have never seen anything like it before,” Lynn said. The motive for the act is unclear. She added that the shooter’s car is now being examined. It is also checked whether the shooter has a connection to the supermarket. The police chief said the number of wounded and dead could rise.
