Former Canadian diplomat detained in China amid tensions over arrest of Huawei executive
Tue, 11 Dec 2018 13:11:27 -0500

Former Canadian diplomat detained in China amid tensions over arrest of Huawei executiveA former Canadian diplomat has been arrested in  China, amid tensions over the recent detention of a Chinese telecom executive in Vancouver. "We have been in direct contact with the Chinese diplomats and representatives," Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said. "We are engaged with the file (case), which we take very seriously." Canadian Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale on Tuesday confirmed the detention of Michael Kovrig. "We're deeply concerned," he said. "A Canadian is obviously in difficulty in China. We are sparing no effort to do everything we possibly can to look after his safety." The International Crisis Group said on Tuesday it was aware of reports that Mr Kovrig, its North East Asia senior adviser, had been detained. The Brussels-based non-governmental organisation said in a statement that it's doing everything possible to obtain additional information about Mr Kovrig's whereabouts and that it will work to ensure his prompt release. The Globe and Mail in Toronto and the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported the arrest, citing unnamed sources. Reports of Mr Kovrig's detention come after  China  warned Canada of consequences for its December 1 arrest of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou at Vancouver's airport. It's unclear if there's any link between the cases. Ms Meng was detained  over US allegations she misled banks about  Huawei' s control of a firm operating in Iran. Yesterday (Tues), the Washington Post reported that the US government is to take action against China  over hacking and economic espionage,using sanctions and indictments. The report could not immediately be confirmed. The International Crisis Group said Mr Kovrig has been one of its full-time experts since February 2017. The organisation's website says Kovrig previously worked as a Canadian diplomat in Beijing and Hong Kong and at the United Nations. Canada's Global Affairs department didn't immediately respond with comment. Former Canadian Liberal leader Bob Rae said it's clear why he's been detained. "It's called repression and retaliation," Mr Rae tweeted.

'Yellow vests' denounce Macron speech as 'charade'Groups of "yellow vest" protesters across France responded scathingly to the "crumbs" offered by President Emmanuel Macron in a speech intended to defuse their revolt, but others acknowledged his efforts. "Nonsense," "a charade", "a bluff" and "a drop in the ocean," were among the immediate reactions that greeted the head of state's televised speech Monday evening announcing an increase in the minimum wage and a range of other financial measures. At a roundabout in the southern town of Le Boulou, some 150 "yellow vests" gathered around a loudspeaker listened carefully to the president's words before starting to shout in chorus.

Trump administration to continue support for Saudi-led airstrikes in Yemen

Trump administration to continue support for Saudi-led airstrikes in YemenThe US will continue to support the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen as it attempts to rival Iranian influence and Islamic extremism in the region, the State Department has said. Since the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was a Washington Post columnist, at Saudi Arabia’s Istanbul consulate, the Trump administration has come under fire for its four-year-involvement in the Saudi-led war in Yemen — leading the country to the brink of famine with about 85,000 young children said to have died from starvation. Last month, the Senate voted to move forward a resolution ending US military support in the conflict, which includies arm sales and intelligence sharing with the Sunni Muslim coalition’s quest to expel Iranian-backed Houthis from the country and restore an internationally recognised government.
