Russia's Vladimir Putin, seething over the collapse of the Soviet Empire, wants to become the hegemon of Eurasia — at least. Iran's Ali Khamenei, outraged by the decline of Islamic power, wants to become the hegemon of the Middle East — at a minimum.
Thank you for Suzanne Fields' excellent column, "Anti-Semitism on International Holocaust Remembrance Day" (Jan. 30), noting anti-Semitism's resurgence in the Middle East and Europe.
The head of the European Union's foreign policy unit, Catherine Ashton, met with Egypt's Mohammed Morsi late Monday, the first time the former president has been granted a meeting with any diplomat since the military threw him from office on July 3.
The United States and the European Union said Tuesday they'll press on with sanctions against Iran, even as they hope the promise of new negotiations could lead to a diplomatic solution ending the nuclear standoff.
The EU said Tuesday that world powers have agreed to a new round of talks with Iran over its nuclear program, and Iran gave permission for inspectors to visit a site suspected of secret atomic work.
U.S. and European leaders expressed optimism Friday that direct talks with Iran about its nuclear program could restart in the near future.
European Union nations must increasingly pool their military resources, especially as individual members keep trimming their budgets and the U.S reshapes its military strategy to focus on regions beyond Europe, the bloc's top defense officials said Tuesday.
Already dim prospects for any quick resumption to Mideast peace talks have been dealt a blow as international mediators failed to reach agreement on how to restart Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and a confrontation that is likely to set back efforts even further looms at the United Nations.
Iran wants to use a new round of talks on its nuclear program to discuss its rights as a nation instead of Western fears that it's building a nuclear bomb, according to confidential letters obtained Wednesday by the Associated Press.
A European Parliament official warned Tuesday that members of the Iranian opposition living in Iraq remain in danger, and he will propose that they all be relocated to other countries.
European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton told reporters at U.N. headquarters in New York that the bloc has commitments for more than the 500 troops it initially expected to send to Central African Republic and "is looking at double that number."
"The EU remains concerned about the heavy civilian casualties, massive displacements of people, serious human rights violations and a worsening of the humanitarian situation in the Central African Republic," Ashton said. "It is imperative for the international community to act to enable a lasting solution to the chaos."
