Iran-P4+1 talks

Iran and the remaining signatories to the 2015 nuclear deal are engaged in talks in Vienna, discussing the two draft documents Tehran presented last week. The proposals are about the removal of US sanctions and the nuclear commitments Iran should fulfill, but differences remain over those two issues. That’s according to Iran’s lead negotiator Ali Bagheri Kani. He says the European sides have failed to come up with any initiatives to resolve the differences.

Battle for Ma'rib

The battle for the Yemeni province of Ma’rib has been ongoing for almost a year. Now Yemen’s Deputy Foreign Minister says the war is in its final stages. Hussein al-Ezzi says security reasons and a resolve to uproot terrorism are the factors driving the push to liberate Ma’rib. The Ansarullah movement and forces loyal to Yemen’s Saudi-backed former president have been engaged in heavy fighting for control of the key province for almost a year. Ansarullah says the battle is now in a crucial stage. The army and fighters from Popular Committees have already managed to liberate several strategic locations, including a mountain range, near the city of Ma'rib. The army says it has given militants and mercenaries a last chance to lay down their arms and surrender.

Tensions over Ukraine

Russia will face consequences if it invades Ukraine. That’s a warning by the group of seven made up of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the US. A British official was speaking at a press conference after a two-day meeting by G-7 foreign ministers in Liverpool. The massive consequences she spoke about, include economic sanctions against Russia. Moscow denies plans for attacking its neighbor. The country instead blames Ukraine and its Western allies for creating tensions near Russian borders. Moscow is also angry at the West, especially the US, for providing weapons to Kiev. Tensions over Ukraine have been escalating over the past weeks.
