President Donald Trump’s administration is entering the final week in office amid a flurry of foreign policy activities, although the president faces widespread impeachment and criticism at home amidst a chaotic scene of insurgency in the United States. Country capital
This week, the administration designated Cuba as a supporter of state terrorism and Yemen Houthi terrorist organization. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also ended official US contact with Taiwanese officials this weekend and on Tuesday accused Iran of becoming a new “stronghold” for algo militants. Idah
The declining development angered American allies and enemies, who were awaiting Trump’s departure and prepared for a new administration led by President-Elec Joe Biden, but Trump̵7;s activities since losing the election. It appears to hinder Biden’s efforts abroad.
One unnamed US official spoke to Foreign policy Explain how to do that.
On Sunday, the list of Iranian-backed Houthi movements, officially known as Anzar Allah, was announced on Sunday as the militant group raised concerns at home and abroad about The dire humanitarian situation in Yemen, where after years of war, more than 10 million people are in hunger. According to the United Nations
The EU statement said the decision to blacklist the Houthis “risks making it harder for the United Nations to reach a comprehensive solution to the Yemeni conflict.”
The statement said that the American movement “It will further complicate the necessary diplomatic involvement with Anzar Allah and the work of the international community in politics, humanitarianism and development.”
The statement said the humanitarian situation was under extra pressure. “This designation is likely to have detrimental effects on the delivery of humanitarian aid funded by the international community and further aggravate the economic crisis resulting from the conflict over five years.”
International aid groups have also expressed regret. The Norwegian Refugee Council said the decision would “It undermines the aid agencies’ ability to respond, and without additional safeguards and broad exemptions for the trade sector, Yemen’s slump economy will continue to be severely affected.”
Cuba was then added to the state’s list of supporters of terrorism on Monday, joining Syria, Iran and North Korea. The Trump administration has abolished ties with Cuba and abolished a bilateral dissolution under President Barack Obama, which has disappointed U.S. liberals and EU allies, who celebrated a major deal with Cuba in the year. 2560
Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez overcame the ruling as “Political opportunism,” which will “be perceived by those who frankly worry about the terrorist epidemic and its victims”.
Democrat Representative Gregory Meeks, chairman of the House’s Foreign Affairs Committee, said in a statement he was “angry” in the designation, especially shortly after last week’s riots and siege of Capitol in Washington, D.C.
“It is imperative to use a careful list of state terrorism supporters in order to maintain its seriousness and integrity, and no country will be added to the list unless it meets legal standards,” Meeks said. I urge President-elect Biden to add a reversal of current foreign policy failures to the list. His long ‘must-do’ when he took office. ‘
Pompeo told reporters on Wednesday that Iran had become the new al-Qaeda group’s new “stronghold”, arguing that the terrorist organization was buried in Tehran and authorized to operate there by the government. Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif claims to be “Tiring lies”
Pompeo confirmed that Abu Muhammad al-Masri, the supreme commander of al-Qaeda, was killed in Tehran in August, according to an Israeli agency, where he was given a residence and protection. From the regime of Iran
But Pompeo does not offer significant new evidence about al-Qaeda shifting its key operations to Iran, although some members live there. The group still has significant presence in the Syrian province of Idlib, Yemen and all of North Africa’s Sahel regions that have retained territories and launched armed operations. The same is not true of Iran.
Pompeo’s claim was met with skepticism, and as well as expanding sanctions against Iranian targets and military stance in the Persian Gulf, it seems at least partly undermining an attempt expected to reverse. Come and engage with Biden’s Tehran.
Among those who denied the allegations was Zamir Kabulov, a spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, who told Sputnik the claims were made. “No reason and no reason” Asked if he had seen new evidence, Kabulov replied: “Absolutely no information.”
Russia is one of the signatories of the Iran-Iran Joint Nuclear Action Plan, which Trump withdrew in 2018, along with co-signatories with China, France, Germany and Britain.Russia has continued to support Iran and the United States to return. Go to JCPOA compliance
Russia, China and the European sides have repeatedly criticized Trump and his aides for the strategy. “Supreme pressure”, which seeks to collapse the Iranian economy and split the regime to force a new tougher nuclear deal negotiated
The Trump administration has failed to assemble an alliance and the United Nations has supported new Iranian sanctions related to the JCPOA violation and the extension of the arms ban in Tehran. Iran’s regime celebrates the United States’ failure as a setback by the Americans and the proof of the Trump administration’s secession on the world stage.
On Saturday, the foreign ministry angered Beijing by terminating official contacts between American and Taiwanese officials. Part of the US strategy to avoid inciting China while it remains in touch with Taipei.
China considers Taiwan a headstrong province and is determined to bring the country under the control of the Chinese Communist Party by force if necessary. The United States has long supported Taiwan with arms sales and military installations. But it is not officially recognized on the democratic island.
In a statement, Pompeii said the State Department “has long created complex internal restrictions to regulate diplomats, service personnel and other officials’ interactions with their Taiwanese counterparts.”
“The United States government has taken these actions unilaterally to try to appease the communist regime in Beijing,” he added.
China’s state media quickly accused Pompeo of “It’s trying to create a lasting scar on Sino-US relations,” said one writer at the official Xinhua news agency on Sunday. “Only interested in stopping unreasonable confrontations and of world peace”
