Press TV The UN’s Syria envoy has written to Iran, Russia and Turkey, pleading with the trio to urgently help save the Syria-wide ceasefire, which has recently been undermined by militant attacks against government positions near Damascus and Hama. Staffan de Mistura voiced alarm over a spike in truce violations around the Syrian capital and the central Hama Province in letters sent to Iran and Russia, both allies with the Syrian government, as well as Turkey, the supporter of the opposition, his office said in a statement. The nationwide ceasefire was brokered last December between the Syrian government and militants by Russia and Turkey with the support of Iran. On the back of the landmark truce, the three states have mediated three rounds of peace negotiations between the Syrian government and opposition groups in Astana, Kazakhstan, since the beginning of 2017.

With the lamb season wrapping up, it was too late for a deal to go through for this season, he was quoted as saying by Stuff.co.nz news website. While speaking at the Central Districts Fieldays earlier this month, Primary Industries Minister Nathan Guy said he had just returned from a visit to the Middle East country where he had signed a veterinary agreement that would pave the way for exports to Iran.

Last December, Jazayeri warned the US against any possible act of aggression against the Islamic Republic, vowing a harsh response to enemiesmoves. “If the US warmongers and their stooges carry out an immature and unprofessional act, they will definitely face the Iranian combatantstough response,” he said. “The current military and security conditions of the Persian Gulf are in such a way that the enemy’s forces and equipment are completely within the reach of Iran's military forces,” he added. Iran has repeatedly warned that any trespassing on Iran’s territorial waters would meet an immediate and befitting response.

She received more than double the votes of John Tsang , her main rival. Tsang, Leungs former Financial Secretary until last December, received 365 votes from the election committee. His support largely came from electors belonging to the pro-democracy camp, many of whom described him as the lesser evil among the slate of candidates. While Tsang was far more popular with the people in Hong Kong during the campaign, the result comes with little surprise, in part because Lam was seen as the candidate blessed by Beijing. Public polling conducted throughout the two-month period of the election consistently found that, although the people of Hong Kong preferred Tsang, they thought Lam would be the likely victor. (A third candidate, former justice Woo Kwok-hing, got 21 votes, far fewer than either Lam or Tsang.) Outside the waterfront-facing Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, where members of the election committee had cast their ballots for two hours earlier that morning, protestors rallied against the decision and the fact that they did not have any votes in this election.

He added that Iran's neighbors didn't respect Iran's rights. But, despite prickly relations between Iran and Qatar, Bani-Sadr said he didn't think the two states were major rivals in getting their product to market. He said Qatar does not need to go through Syria or Iraq to export its gas, since it would be cheaper to build a pipeline via Saudi Arabia, while Iran would be better off to sell its gas via pipeline to Turkey, rather than via Syria or Iraq, which would cost twice as much. Syria's Assad, however, during a state visit to Turkey in 2009, several years before a sectarian conflict erupted and relations with Turkey soured, insisted that Syria would be an ideal transit country for a pipeline from the Gulf to the Mediterranean. Triggered war? In a December 2016 interview, Assad claimed that it was possible that the existence of rival gas pipeline projects between Iran and Qatar could have ignited his country's six-year-old civil war.

To begin with, Crowdstrike initially gauged its certainty as to the identity of the hackers with “ medium confidence .” However, a later development, announced in late December and touted by the Washington Post , boosted this to “high confidence.” The reason for this newfound near-certainty was their discovery that “Fancy Bear” had also infected an application used by the Ukrainian military to target separatist artillery in the Ukrainian civil war. As the Post reported : “While CrowdStrike, which was hired by the DNC to investigate the intrusions and whose findings are described in a new report, had always suspected that one of the two hacker groups that struck the DNC was the GRU, Russia’s military intelligence agency, it had only medium confidence. “Now, said CrowdStrike co-founder Dmitri Alperovitch, ‘we have high confidence’ it was a unit of the GRU.
