Hundreds of thousands of people at the National Mall in Washington looked on Friday as Donald Trump became the 45th U.S. president, and a far larger audience around the country and throughout the world witnessed the event through live broadcasts. VOA reporters talked to people around the globe who said they are looking at the transition of American power with a mix of admiration and apprehension. Russia In Moscow, a “Russian Army”-brand clothing store flashed Trump’s image on an electronic billboard and offered discounts to American citizens. On the streets, reactions were mixed. “We hope that relations between our Russia and America will improve, that they’ll find a common language in relation to Syria, that they will find a common language to get rid of what is going on there,” said Lidiya Voronova, a retiree. A young editor at a newspaper who gave his name only as Sergey said Trump “is quite a controversial president in the history of the United States, but I hope he will gain the trust of Americans.

"There is currently a backlog of 4,000 foreign student visa applications due to EMGS's lethargy, both at public and private universities," he said. EMGS was established as a non-profit company limited by guarantee under the Higher Education Ministry to carry out marketing, promotion and recruitment of international students to Malaysia. Ahmad Zahid explained that the visa approval process was expedited because foreign students were a contributor to the national economy through foreign currency exchange, involving RM5 billion annually. Aside from that, he said, the government also agreed to provide visa to the students' parents or guardians, particularly from the Middle East, to enable them stay in Malaysia and take care of their children. "This is the culture of parents in the Middle East. We will provide them visa but only after security screening, as we cannot compromise on the question of national security," he stressed. — Bernama

Turkey's Erdoğan was so close to Syria's Bashar Al-Assad that their families vacationed together . This did not prevent the two from falling out and producing one of the Middle East's most profound enmities. Right now, it seems that Russia will benefit greatly from the US' political sea change, and Trump has spoken positively of Putin while barely acknowledging Russian interference in the election. But one could quickly "dump" the other . Politicians usually know how to separate policy-making from personal feelings. Trump and Putin, on the other hand, vain and thin-skinned, are unlikely to compromise or backtrack if their pride is threatened. Such unprecedented uncertainty bodes badly for growth prospects in 2017. But strongmen in power in Washington and Moscow bodes well for future populists. France, where Marine Le Pen is a strong contender for the presidency , may be the test case of whether 2017 really is the year of the strongman (or strongwoman).

The U.N. Security Council said Friday that it looked forward to talks on Syria in Kazakhstan as "an important step" ahead of the resumption of U.N.-led talks between the Syrian government and opposition in Geneva next month.

Council members "welcomed and supported the efforts of Russia and Turkey to end violence, establish a cease-fire and jump-start a U.N.-led political process." The talks in the Kazakh capital, Astana, start Monday, and council members welcomed that meeting as a prelude to a new round of intra-Syria talks in Geneva on February 8, led by U.
