I can't stand Trump: Apple co-founder Wozniak

NEW DELHI: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak on Saturday said that he “cannot stand’ US President Donald Trump and said the way he treats people is very “negative”.

“I can never stand Donald Trump. The way he treats people is very negative. I may like his policies, but from now on I will make sure I never attend any event where members of his family are present,” said Wozniak at ET Global Business Summit in New Delhi, India on Saturday.

The US President’s average approval rating for the first year in office, 38.4 per cent, is the lowest in American history for any president. He has been accused by several women of “sexual harassment”.

His comments alleged actions towards women have gotten him into trouble in the media since 2016, notably after the release of the transcript of an “Access Hollywood” tape in which Trump bragged about his ability to grope women because he’s “a star”.

BEIRUT: Air strikes killed 21 civilians in the Syrian rebel enclave of Eastern Ghouta on Saturday as major powers bickered over the terms of a ceasefire, a monitor said.

Twelve were killed in the enclave’s largest town Douma, which has been repeatedly hit in the devastating bombardment the government launched last Sunday, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Pak promises to curb terror financing

Pakistan promises to expedite steps to curb terror financing – Times of India

Feb 24, 2018, 17:34 IST

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan‘s interior minister says the country will expedite steps to curb terror financing and money laundering a day after the country avoided ending up on a terror watch list by a global task force.

Ahsan Iqbal in Saturday’s remarks said Pakistan’s performance in the war on terror was better than others, but the country still faced pressure from Washington.

Pakistan on Friday escaped a motion to put it on a ‘grey list’ by the Financial Action Task Force, which met in Paris. The US and Britain had jointly submitted a letter to the FATF, nominating it for placement on watch list.

Pakistan was on a list from 2012-2015 and feared a return would deter foreign investment and hurt access to international financial markets.

New strikes hit Syria enclave after UN delays truce vote

DOUMA, SYRIA: Deadly air strikes hit the Syrian rebel enclave of Eastern Ghouta for a seventh straight day on Saturday after the United Nations again delayed a vote on a ceasefire.
The Damascus government launched a devastating bombardment of the area just outside the capital last Sunday that has now killed nearly 500 civilians including more than 100 children, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The Britain-based monitor of the war said at least 21 civilians were killed in fresh strikes on Eastern Ghouta on Saturday, including 12 in the main town of Douma.

It has said the strikes are being carried out by Syrian and Russian forces. Moscow, which intervened militarily in support of its Damascus ally in 2015, has denied any direct involvement in the Eastern Ghouta bombardment.

US President Donald Trump on Friday said Russia’s recent actions in Syria were a “disgrace”.

Friday’s civilian death toll in the enclave — under siege by the Syrian army since 2013 — totalled 41, including 17 children, according to the Observatory.

The UN Security Council had been due to hold a vote on Friday on a resolution calling for a month-long ceasefire to allow aid deliveries and the evacuation of seriously wounded civilians.

But the vote was postponed until 1700 GMT on Saturday as Western powers bickered with Russia over the wording.

Control of Eastern Ghouta is shared between two Islamist factions and Syria’s former Al-Qaeda affiliate, and Russia insists there can be no ceasefire with the jihadists or their allies.

Russia has been pressing for a negotiated withdrawal of rebel fighters and their families like the one that saw the government retake full control of second city Aleppo in December 2016.

But all three rebel groups have refused.

World leaders have expressed outrage at the plight of civilians in Eastern Ghouta, which UN chief Antonio Guterres called “hell on earth”, but have so far been powerless to halt the bloodshed.

The enclave is completely surrounded by government-controlled territory and its 400,000 residents are unwilling or unable to flee the deadly siege.

The rebels have been firing back into Damascus, where a hospital was hit on Friday, state news agency SANA reported.

At least 16 civilians have been killed in eastern districts of the capital since Sunday, according to state media, and many residents have sought temporary accommodation elsewhere for fear of a further intensification of the fighting.

At the United Nations, US ambassador Nikki Haley expressed dismay as negotiations dragged on to secure Russian approval for a ceasefire resolution.

“Unbelievable that Russia is stalling a vote on a ceasefire allowing humanitarian access in Syria,” Haley posted on Twitter.

“How many more people will die before the Security Council agrees to take up this vote? Let’s do this tonight. The Syrian people can’t wait.”

Russia has vetoed 11 draft resolutions on Syria to block action that targeted its ally. In November, it used its veto to end a UN-led investigation of chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron wrote to Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Friday to ask him to back the ceasefire.

Negotiations have stumbled over a key provision of the draft resolution that specifies when the ceasefire will begin.

Following hours of tough negotiations, an amended draft was circulated that demands a 30-day ceasefire “without delay,” while stopping short of specifying the timing.

A previous draft had said the ceasefire would go into force 72 hours after the adoption, but that was dropped from the text in a bid to reach compromise with Russia.

In another concession to Russia, the draft also specifies that the ceasefire will not apply to operations against the Islamic State group or Al-Qaeda, along with “individuals, groups, undertakings and entities associated” with the blacklisted terror groups.

The text would demand the immediate lifting of all sieges, including that on Eastern Ghouta, and order all sides to “cease depriving civilians of food and medicine indispensable to their survival.”

Russia calls for talks with US on North Korea: TASS

MOSCOW: Russian deputy foreign minister Morgulov called on Saturday for direct talks between the United States and Russia on North Korea, according to TASS news agency.
His comments were published after a decision by the United States to impose its largest package of sanctions on North Korea, aimed at pressuring it into giving up its nuclear and missile programmes.

“I’m sure that the dynamic development of the current situation on the Korean peninsula calls for active Russo-American dialogue on this issue,” Morgulov was quoted as saying.

He reiterated Moscow had sent an invitation for talks to Joseph Yun, the US Special Representative for North Korea Policy.

Morgulov added the date for talks was still under discussion.

The Russian diplomat also repeated calls for talks between Washington and Pyongyang.
