UN Security Council did not agree on a joint statement on Israel and Palestine – News

Published

on

The session, which was held virtually, resulted in retaliatory attacks by Palestinians and Israelis.

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki accused Israel of “war crimes”, condemning the “aggression” of the Jewish state against “the Palestinian people and their holy places.”

“Hamas chose to escalate tensions used as a pretext for starting this war, which was deliberate,” Israel’s ambassador to the United States of America and the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, replied.

The Israeli diplomat asked the Security Council to condemn the “indiscriminate missile launch,” while the Palestinian minister called on the authorities to “take action” to prevent an Israeli offensive, asking how many Palestinians must be killed to be considered a “scandal.”

In parallel with the meeting, 15 members of the Security Council continued negotiations on a common text aimed at ending hostilities and confirming a solution for two states living side by side, namely Israel and Palestine, based on resolutions already adopted by the UN.

But the United States, in a position that many of its allies find incomprehensible, continues to backtrack on any joint statement, according to several diplomats heard by AFP.

In a week, Washington alone rejected two texts proposed by three Council members: Norway, Tunisia and China.

Published

Finland’s prime minister is back in the spotlight this week, again for reasons other than her leadership style. In a video posted on social media, Sanna Marin dances and sings with a group of friends. As a result, opposition party leaders are demanding that the 36-year-old government official undergo a drug test, and argue that such an attitude is not appropriate for a government official.

Suitcases containing the remains of two children sold at auction in New Zealand

Published

on

New Zealand police said the remains of two children were found in suitcases bought at an auction in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city.

Inspector Tofilau Faamanuia Waaelua said that the bodies of the victims, aged between five and ten years, were probably hidden for several years in two suitcases of the same size.

“The nature of the discovery makes the investigation challenging, especially given the time that has elapsed between death and discovery,” Waaelua said.

The family found the bags after purchasing a trailer full of items sold in bulk from a warehouse, with an official stating that the family in question was unrelated to the death but “understandably distraught at the find.”

Police, who also called Interpol, are searching the trailer for other household items and personal items to identify the victims.

The warehouse and property where the bags were found were thoroughly inspected by a forensic team.

“We are doing our best to identify the victims” in order to bring to justice the perpetrator or perpetrators of the deaths of these children, Waaelua said.

It is the northernmost permanently inhabited region on the entire globe. And this is also Achilles’ heel of NATO in the Arcticwhat did you once call it Professor of Security Studies.

Formally, Svalbard is under the sovereignty of Norway, but thanks to a century-old treaty, many other countries have the right to exploit its natural resources. In particular, Russia, which has been mining in the region for years, often employs Ukrainian workers, mostly from the Donbass. In the abandoned city of Pyramidyou can still find a bust of Lenin and slogan which says: “Communism is our goal.”
