Europe and the US face three main challenges together As the new Congress convened and Donald Trump is about to become the new President of the United States, it is important that the US and Europe focus on the challenges facing us. During the Cold War and the fight against terrorism, the United States and Europe were close allies defending their common values: democracy, freedom, rule of law, and human dignity. The US stood side-by-side with its European allies when Western Europe faced the threat of the Soviet Union. European allies in NATO stood side-by-side with the US after 9/11 in fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan. We as Germans remain grateful to the US for the support we received after the fall of the Berlin Wall and during German reunification. Our transatlantic alliance is not merely something to admire in history books, however. It needs to stay robust and resilient in the future as well.

Many are living outdoors in squalid camps . The extreme weather that has swept the country in recent weeks is making surviving all the more difficult. But all is not lost. The Greek government has stepped up its emergency efforts , working with organizations like UNHCR to move more people to the mainland and docking large ships in island ports that can accommodate hundreds on board. Dozens of other volunteer organizations are also on the ground day in and day out providing life-saving assistance. We reiterate our call to increase safe pathways for the admission of people in need of protection, including via resettlement, family reunification, private sponsorship and other mechanisms to provide a viable alternative to irregular movement and reliance on human smugglers, UNHCR spokeswoman Cécile Pouilly said Friday in a statement. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

But in fact, it wasnt quite so clear cut and as I’ve said Taiwan is now a democratic nation, which has never really being ruled by China; never been ruled by the people’s Republic of China,” Jacobs added. The Global Times on Sunday dismissed Trump as a rookie who will meet strong countermeasures if he impairs the "one-China" principle. The paper said the mainland will be prompted to speed up Taiwan reunification as a result of “this despicable strategy.” Jacobs said mainland China today is nationalistic and pushing hard against Taiwan and in the South China Sea, which adds to global tensions and gives the Chinese military leverage to push for ever-higher defense budgets. “I think he [Trump] is right in saying the one china policy should be discussed, because it’s based on false history. But there is also a couple of other things which were false about it such as saying the United States recognizes that Taiwan is part of China.

The Global Times, an influential state-run tabloid, echoed the China Daily, saying Beijing would take "strong countermeasures" against Trump's attempt to "impair" the One China principle. "The Chinese mainland will be prompted to speed up Taiwan reunification and mercilessly combat those who advocate Taiwan's independence," the paper said in an editorial. It said Trump's endorsement of Taiwan was merely a ploy to further his administration's short term interests, adding: "Taiwan may be sacrificed as a result of this despicable strategy". "If you do not beat them until they are bloody and bruised, then they will not retreat," Yang Yizhou, deputy head of the All-China Federation of Taiwan Compatriots, told an academic meeting on cross-straits relations in Beijing on Saturday. Taiwan independence must "pay a cost" for every step forward taken, "we must use bloodstained facts to show them that the road is blocked," Yang said, according to a Monday report on the meeting by the official People's Daily Overseas Edition.

United Nations officials say negotiations aimed at wrapping up a reunification deal for the divided Mediterranean island of Cyprus will resume next week. The adviser to the U.N. secretary general on Cyprus, Espen Barth Eide, described Thursday’s international conference on the island as a turning point for negotiations. For the first time over decades of off-again, on-again negotiations, he noted the Greek and Turkish Cypriot sides presented maps of their preferred internal administrative borders of a newly-formed federated union of Cyprus. “It was seen by both sides as a sign that this thing is moving towards the endgame…. And I think there is a momentum now and I think that larger political developments remind us that it is probably, or quite securely, very important that we use these coming days as effectively as we can and in as constructive a spirit as possible,” Eide said.

Now is the “best chance” for the heads of Cyprus to find an agreement, Special Advisor of the UN Secretary-General on Cyprus, Espen Barth Eide, stated in Geneva on Friday, after reunification talks this week ended without a definitive conclusion. Eide advised the leaders of the divided island to “use the best of the momentum that still exists, while it still exists," in order to reach an agreement. The Special Advisor acknowledged that this would not be an easy task, but still believes it is possible. He explained that the final decision will be made by the people, when Greek and Turkish Cypriots vote in a referendum on the reunification of the island.
