What was the outcome of these talks? AC: If there’s one person that has taken the Cyprus reunification talks very seriously from the U.S. side, it has been Joe Biden. He’s shown a very big interest in solving the Cyprus problem. Joe Biden, as a politician, has always historically been very warm with the Greek-American population, and he seems to take Greek foreign policy issues very much to heart. Victoria Nuland has shown an interest in solving the Cyprus problem, though I would caution that Victoria Nuland does not seek a solution because she wants to create peace within the island of Cyprus. She sees things more from a geopolitical standpoint, of making sure that Cyprus is aligned with Western Europe, with NATO, and used as very much a geopolitical tool against Russian influence within the region. The players involved in solving the Cyprus issue are, of course, the Greek Cypriots and the Turkish Cypriots, and along with them are the three guarantor states, which are the United Kingdom, Greece, and Turkey.

Mr Speaker, would my Right Honourable friend agree that at a time when there is fresh fighting in the Ukraine, at a time when Russia continues to carry out large-scale exercises close to the borders of the Baltic states, some of them with nuclear capable equipments, would he agree that there has never been a successful recent visit to the White House secured from Donald Trump the 100% commitment to our Nato alliance which has been a guarantor of peace in our times.

As a guarantor power, the UK plays a supportive role and is open to any arrangement which is acceptable to the two communities. I thank the Minister for that reply. You will know that from Northern Ireland's point of view we have been able to have a partnership Government which has moved from bringing communities together.

.. I was mistaken for Mr Trump in Newcastle, which rather took me aback. Also in New York, a humbling experience as you can imagine for me. I can't tell you keeping Nato together has been so important for Europe as a whole? He is completely right and why it was so important that the Prime Minister on her very successful visit to the White House secured from Donald Trump the 100% commitment to our Nato alliance which has been the guarantor of peace in our times.

No matter how long you've studied our city's history, it's still easy to be shocked at some of the idiotic decisions that have been and still are - made concerning our heritage. The 1960s and 1970s seem to have seen a peak of bulldozer brutalism and bad taste, when architectural elegance and historical importance were no guarantor of survival. Here, we have another icon of Leicester's city centre street scene an imposing mock-Tudor edifice designed to fit into an awkward spot...

Russia considers the second round of Syria peace talks, held this week in Kazakhstan, a success, a senior Foreign Ministry official said Saturday. The director of the ministry's Middle East and North Africa department, Sergey Vershinin, told Russian state media the talks in Astana were an important step toward resolving the Syrian crisis. Three guarantor countriesRussia and Iran, which back the Syrian government, and Turkey, which backs some rebels opposed to it — organized the talks in Kazakhstan. In addition to the host country, others attending included representatives from Damascus and armed Syrian opposition groups, the United Nations and various observers, such as the United States and Jordan. Delegations at the talks in the Kazakh capital were smaller and lower-level than they were during the first round of the Astana Process in January.

Russia's Special Envoy on Syria Alexander Lavrentiev said that the Astana talks on Syria proved to be attractive to an increasing number of opposition factions, on Wednesday during a statement to press in the Kazakh capital. His comments came at the end of the first day of new Kazakhstan-hosted talks involving the Syrian government and opposition as well as Turkey, Russia and Iran. SOT, Alexander Lavrentiev, Russia's Special Envoy on Syria (Russian): "The example of Astana proved to be quite attractive because a large number of other armed forces of the Syrian opposition are willing to join this process. They are willing to sign an agreement with Russia as a guarantor to participate in establishing peace in the country. This can only be welcomed. That is why a delegation from Jordan attended the meeting today as an observer, as well as opposition representatives of the so called Southern Front.

To assure the Palestinians of its intention, the US could purchase land or a building in East Jerusalem for future use for the American embassy in Palestine, because in any case there will be no Israeli-Palestinian peace unless East Jerusalem becomes the capital of the state of Palestine. There is no doubt that the Netanyahu government would vehemently object to such a move, but due to the fact that US military and political support is indispensable for Israel, no Israeli government can ignore the US' position. Indeed, if Trump is concerned (as I believe he is) about Israel's national security and its future wellbeing, the only way to safeguard that is by insisting that the two-state solution remains a viable option. The implications of such a move alone will be far and wide: Notwithstanding Israel's stern objection, it will breathe new life into the two-state solution; It will prompt the Palestinians to change their approach to the conflict by ending incitement and violence, as they will begin to see the prospect of establishing a Palestinian state could soon become a reality which they do not want to jeopardize; It will dramatically enhance the US' overall positon among its Arab allies and restore its credibility as the ultimate guarantor of regional stability; It will prompt the Arab states to support the American initiative and pressure Palestinian extremists to accept the inevitable; It will strengthen the hand of Israel's opposition parties, who will be in a better position to develop alternate policies to that of Netanyahu while weakening the hand of extremist Israelis.

What will the Welsh Government base its decision on? Two main elements. This issue of the guarantor will be critical but the Welsh Government needs to be persuaded of the viability of the scheme.

Most specifically, together Welsh Government to underwrite and provide a guarantor in the event of the project hitting financial difficulties. This has proved problematic. If you go back to the spring of last year, the proposal was for the Welsh Government to cover the entire cost of the project in the event of problems, that was rejected.

One thing sure: the cancellation of the Trans-Pacific Partnership or TPP will certainly be a gift to China. Hence, China may soon find itself the sole guarantor of the global free trade. As to the One China policy regarding Taiwan, Mr. Trump will find it very challenging to reverse the 40 years policy that defines US-Sino relations. Upsetting this balance will have serious economic, diplomatic, and even military ramifications. Similar argument could be made about South China Sea dispute. Washington should see the writings on the wall when China, recently, decided to install more advanced weapons in the South China Sea . Is China sending a message to Mr. Trump? Is China defying the World tribunal's recent rulings? Is this China's approach to cement and project its global power? The answer is yes, yes and yes! Another issue that looms large: energy.
