In fact, the flight was supposed to provide food, medicines, and other useful products to the Ukrainian population, in difficulty due to the fighting in recent weeks. The workers of the "Galileo Galilei" airport of Pisa had been asked to load humanitarian aid destined for Ukraine. However, when they found themselves faced with crates containing...

    The Taliban doubtless said that their governance would be different this time. Developments on the ground, however, tell a different story Three issues have emerged as being of key concern to the United States and the European Union—whose representatives have recently met those of the Taliban-- and members of G-20, in respect of the developments in Afghanistan. These are the humanitarian situation in that country, the danger of its becoming a spawning ground of international Islamist terrorism, as it had become during the earlier Taliban dispensation (1996-2001), and the human rights of all Afghans, particularly women, girls and the minorities....

Earlier this week, one man took advantage of an entry permit he received and attempted to avoid returning to Gaza, in a bid to remain in the country illegally. In the process, he abandoned his seven-year-old...

The US also offers military assistance to countries in the Middle East and other regions and funds programmes for global health, refugee aid and more. The March law writing the cuts into the budget slashed funding for these and other programmes by roughly 5%. More...
