U.S., Iran send conflicting signals on their disputes

U.S., Iran send conflicting signals on their disputesTensions have risen since U.S. President Donald Trump last year abandoned the major powers' nuclear deal with Iran under which Tehran agreed to curtail its nuclear program in return for the lifting of global sanctions crippling its economy. Washington has since reimposed draconian sanctions to throttle Iran's oil trade in a "maximum pressure" policy to force Tehran to agree stricter limits on its nuclear capacity, curb its ballistic missile program and end support for proxy forces in a regional power struggle with U.S.-backed Gulf Arabs.

Mr Cuccinelli said, explaining his lack of knowledge about specifics by saying ?operational details are kept contained within the agency?.The raids were expected in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and San Francisco.But, there were no reports of the raids in several cities, according to immigrant advocacy groups that are monitoring the situation.Mr Cucinelli?s agency is in charge of legal immigration, and it is left to Immigration and Customs Enforcement to detain undocumented immigrants for deportation.The US has conducted raids previously, including raids on workplaces where undocumented immigrants have allegedly been hired.Donald Trump's administration has overseen a spike in the number of those kinds of raids, compared to during the Obama administration.

Italy seizes 'combat-ready' missile and automatic weapon stash in raids on far-Right figuresItalianpolice have seized a large arsenal of weapons, including an air-to-air missile, in raids on neo-Nazi sympathisers, they said on Monday. Elite police forces searched properties across northernItalyfollowing an investigation intoItalianswho had fought alongside Russian-backed separatist forces in eastern Ukraine, a police statement said. Three men were arrested, including a customs officer who has previously stood for parliament for an extreme right party. During their raids, police discovered a French-made Matra air-to-air missile that appeared to have once belonged to the Qatar armed forces. Subsequent checks showed the weapon was in working condition but lacked an explosive charge. A big cache of guns and ammunition was seized by the Turin special police force Credit: FRANCESCO AMMENDOLA,HO/AFP/Getty Images Police said the suspects had tried to sell the missile in conversations with contacts on the WhatsApp messaging network. Among other weapons uncovered were 26 guns, 20 bayonets, 306 gun parts, including silencers and rifle scopes, and more than 800 bullets of various calibres. The arms were primarily from Austria, Germany and the United States. Police also seized Nazi memorabilia from the properties. "The police investigation ... came into being because of the activities of someItalianfighters with extremist backgrounds who had taken part in the armed conflict in the Ukrainian region of Donbass," the police statement said. More than 10,000 people have been killed since 2014 in fighting between pro-Russian separatists and Ukrainian forces in eastern Ukraine.

Susan Rice Calls Chinese Diplomat a ?Racist Disgrace? on Twitter

Susan Rice Calls Chinese Diplomat a ?Racist Disgrace? on Twitter(Bloomberg) -- Sign up for Next China, a weekly email on where the nation stands now and where it's going next.Former U.S. National Security Advisor Susan Rice sparred with a senior Chinese diplomat on Twitter in an unusual and heated dispute over race in Washington.In a series of Tweets apparently aimed at making a broader point about diplomatic divisions over the mass detention of Muslims in China?s Xinjiang province, Lijian Zhao, a diplomat posted in Islamabad, said on Sunday that if ?you?re in Washington, D.C., you know the white never go? to the southeastern part of the U.S. capital.?You are a racist disgrace. And shockingly ignorant too,? Rice told Zhao on Twitter. Likely assuming that Zhao was posted in China?s mission in Washington, she then addressed her next comment to China?s ambassador to the U.S., Cui Tiankai. ?Ambassador Cui, I expect better of you and your team. Please do the right thing and send him home.?Zhao, who is deputy chief of mission at the Chinese embassy in Pakistan?s capital, is often vocal on Twitter against critics of China?s infrastructure-building projects in Pakistan and other parts of Asia. Beijing has invested tens of billions of dollars in Pakistan, whose leader Imran Khan has previously dodged questions about the issue.?Shockingly Ignorant??You are such a disgrace, too. And shockingly ignorant, too. I am based in Islamabad. Truth hurts. I am simply telling the truth,? Zhao fired back at Rice on Monday. ?To label someone who speak the truth that you don?t want to hear a racist, is disgraceful & disgusting.?Read More: How China Is Defending Its Detention of Muslims to the WorldZhao didn?t immediately respond to phone calls, an email and a direct message on Twitter seeking comment.In a string of messages that appeared aimed at highlighting U.S. hypocrisy on human rights, Zhao referred to everything from income inequality and school shootings in the U.S. to immigration officers separating children from parents.He tweeted a list of mostly-Western nations that condemned China for its actions in Xinjiang as well as a separate list of other countries -- including Pakistan, Cuba, Tajikistan and Nigeria -- that wrote a joint letter to the United Nations supporting Beijing, which Zhao called ?a big slap on the face of U.S. & its western cohorts.?Outspoken DiplomatsChina?s diplomats have become increasingly vocal and outspoken. This month, China?s ambassador to London, Liu Xiaoming, gave a rare televised statement accusing the British government of meddling in Hong Kong, the scene of mass protests against Beijing?s rule.Earlier this year, China?s envoy to Canada publicly accused his hosts of ?white supremacy,? while the country?s chief envoy in South Africa said President Donald Trump?s policies were making the U.S. ?the enemy of the whole world.?Asked about the Twitter dispute on Monday, China?s foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang didn?t comment directly.?I don?t know the specific situation,? he said. However, he added, ?we resolutely oppose the interference of the U.S. and individual Western countries in interfering in China?s internal affairs with the Xinjiang issue.?To contact the reporters on this story: Iain Marlow in New Delhi at imarlow1@bloomberg.net;Dandan Li in Beijing at dli395@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Brendan Scott at bscott66@bloomberg.net, Chris Kay, Gregory TurkFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com2019 Bloomberg L.P.
