Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov blasted suggestions made by US officials that Russia had supplied arms to the Taliban as not only "unacceptable," but as an attempt to divert attention from the Syrian peace settlement. The statement was made during a joint press conference with OSCE Secretary General, Lamberto Zannier, in Moscow on Tuesday. Lavrov went on to say that he believes such statements could be “an attempt to divert attention from some plans for a change in the course of the Syrian settlement," which he elaborated as being “a shift to the old theme of regime change.” The Russian diplomat went on to stress the necessity to unite efforts and to "help the Afghans to build their dialogue on national reconciliation on the basis of the criteria set forth in the UN Security Council Resolution." SOT, Sergei Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister (Russian): "The statements made by US representatives contained not only accusations that we have been arming the Taliban, which is absolutely unacceptable in terms of the objective perception of information, but accusations that we were in favour of a dialogue with the Taliban.

I want to raise a point with my right honourable friend specifically, which was about the Lord Owen 's request for documents. When he was the Health Minister in the 1970s, he was told by officials that they had been destroyed. And the archer enquiry, which I am sure my right honourable friend will make reference to, found no reason why that should have happened. I know that my right honourable friend will go on to talk about specific cases.

Until five days ago, the White House had no concrete tax proposal. It had not settled on the size of the tax cuts, or whether a package should add to the deficit or keep it as-is — philosophical ideas that would guide the shape of any package. Nor does it have in place key Treasury staffers like the assistant secretary of tax policy, who in past administrations, would advise on tax tweaks. Then, the president made an appearance at the Treasury Department on Friday afternoon alongside Secretary Steven Mnuchin and in a move that surprised even those-in-the-know, he offered to unveil a tax plan on Wednesday. That promise made White House and Treasury officials scramble to hastily reach consensus on the highlights of a tax plan before they meet on Tuesday with Republican leaders including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Speaker Ryan, Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee Kevin Brady and Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch.

Let me assure all that this is an ongoing exercise. Indeed, we view much of Asia, Africa and the Middle East as the emerging growth centres for Malaysian palm oil. Several marketing and promotional efforts are in place with the aim that in the longer term these could emerge as more important markets than Europe. These markets are, however, fraught with a myriad of peculiar challenges and require specially tailored initiatives if we are to succeed. Luckily, the Malaysian palm oil industry is blessed with dynamic and dedicated leadership starting all the way at the top with the minister himself, the ministry officials and its various palm oil agencies. This network makes for a strong fighting force that has one goal only – ensure the long-term sustainability and continued profitability of the palm oil industry so that the nearly 4 million dependants in our society continue to reap the benefits.

The new lawyer, He Xiaodian, could not be reached for comment and the courtroom also did not answer calls on Tuesday. Chen said He had contacted Xie's family on Monday night to advise them not to go to the courtroom. "But they did not get any clear information saying the trial date was different," he said. Court officials had confirmed to Xie's wife, Chen Guiqiu, that the trial would start Tuesday, she said in a statement last week. Chinese President Xi Jinping has overseen a tightening of controls on civil society since assuming power in 2012, closing avenues for legal activism that had opened up in recent years. While the government initially targeted political activists and human rights campaigners, it has increasingly turned its attention to the legal professionals who represent them. "The lawyers are seen as threatening because what they do in the ordinary course is use courts to attack government policies," Karla Simon of the New York University School of Law told AFP.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg dismissed sanctuary cities on Tuesday, saying that those who oppose federal immigration laws should try to change them in legislatures. "Morning Joe" panelist Steve Rattner asked Bloomberg for his take on the cities that refuse to cooperate with federal officials on detaining and deporting illegal immigrants. "You cannot, Steve, have everybody deciding which laws they should obey," Bloomberg said. "The law is the law." "You should obey the law and if you don't like the law, get your legislative body to change the law," Bloomberg continued. "But society breaks down if we can all decide what's right and what's wrong." Current New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is an advocate of sanctuary cities who led the charge to make New York City one. After the Trump administration threatened to cut federal funding to sanctuary cities, de Blasio said that he would fight the administration in court.
