    Several Arab countries have been reviving their ties with Damascus, suggesting an effort to bring Syria back into the Arab fold. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad held talks in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Friday, his office said. This was his first official visit to an Arab country since the Syrian civil war erupted in 2011. Assad's only trips outside Syria during the war have been to Iran and Russia. Both nations have been key supporters of his regime. During the one-day visit, Assad met with the UAE's de facto ruler and the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammed...

    U.N. chief Antonio Guterres on Wednesday called for an end to oil, gas, and coal use in favor of renewable sources as part of a self-described global climate Marshall Plan. The veteran Portuguese Socialist spoke ahead of the upcoming World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, which has already issued its own call for net-zero carbon emissions to be driven by a wider embrace of solar and wind power sources without delay.

    The poor performance of Russian equipment deployed in the Ukraine war is bound to be giving global buyers second thoughts.How can it be that a large Russian army attacking force, capable of causing untold destruction, is being checkmated and systematically devastated by Ukraine’s military, in particular its special forces?And what impact will this have on the Russian army and its industrial backbone, the Russian companies that build the tanks, armored personnel carriers, mobile air defenses and aircraft including fixed-wing and helicopters ­– all of which have suffered extreme losses in the conflict?Russia’s exports consist of various commodities, most prominently wheat,...
  • Iran-Saudi tensions near end, Iraq PM says

    An end to years of tension between regional rivals Iran and Saudi Arabia is near, Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhemi said in an interview published on Saturday. Iraq, a neighbour to both countries, has hosted five rounds of talks over the past year aimed at restoring ties between Sunni Muslim Saudi Arabia, and Shiite-majority Iran. Following the latest round in Baghdad, Iraqi officials have sounded increasingly optimistic, talking of an imminent sixth session and even going so far as to raise the prospect of a resumption in diplomatic relations severed in 2016. Iran and the Saudi kingdom support rival sides...

    To say that the United States’ foreign policy situation has shifted dramatically in the past couple of years would be an understatement. While the world is largely united in its opposition to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, America’s individual relationships with some countries have grown increasingly rocky even as former rivals in other parts of the world seem to be on the mend. For one example, look no further than the recent rapprochement between Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Just this week, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited Saudi Arabia for the first time in five years, taking meetings with both Crown...
  • Three-way Israel, Egypt, UAE summit on Iran nuclear deal

    Prime Minister Naftali Bennett made a surprise trip to Cairo on Monday. His meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fatteh El-Sisi at Sharm el-Sheikh was later joined by United Arab Emirates ruler, Sheikh Muhammed Bin Zayed. A diplomatic source said the trilateral meeting was prearranged. The trio discussed “shared security interests in all their aspects.” All three have taken a stand against any US plan to de-list Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps as a terrorist organization for the sake of a revived nuclear deal with Tehran. The White House in Washington stated Monday on the talks in Vienna: “We don’t yet have...

Iran was surprised to see the recent Negev Summit where Israel hosted the foreign ministers of the UAE, Bahrain, Morocco and Egypt. While Tehran has been shouting about the Abraham Accords since the beginning, accusing Arab states of betraying the Palestinian cause and threatening them against working with Israel, it appears that the Islamic Republic now understands that this new era of peaceful diplomacy is actually happening...

    ran’s Hossein Salami, commander-in-chief of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, warned the governments of the region and the “Zionist movement” against any role in the Persian Gulf. This comes in the wake of the Negev Summit, where Bahrain and the UAE, which are in the Gulf, attended an unprecedented and important summit in Israel. The report of his comments took place in Iran’s Fars News and Tasnim News on Wednesday night. He was “referring to the security situation in the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz and the Sea of ​​Oman and some movements of the presence of the Zionists...

    The foreign ministers of countries under Iran’s guns seemed more intent on cooperation among themselves than on backing America’s pursuit of reviving a failed nuclear deal. Beefed up military and intelligence cooperation among regional allies to confront Iran is the most positive outcome of the Negev summit — even as America inexplicably remains determined to appease the mullahs. Foreign ministers of Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Morocco, and Egypt today ended a summit hastily organized by Israel’s foreign minister, Yair Lapid, at the Negev town of Sde Boker. They decided to boost security cooperation and vowed to meet periodically in...

    Qatari terror broadcast network Al Jazeera clearly is celebrating declassifying of a four-page bogus intelligence report centering the murder of Muslim Brotherhood man and an aide of Osama Bin Laden – Jamal Khashoggi. On March 2, 2021, Al Jazeera released a report stating Somali-American member of the US Congress, Ilhan Omar has introduced a bill to sanction Saudi Crown Prince Muhammed Bin Salman by falsely accusing him of his “role in the murder of” Khashoggi. It may be mentioned here that, Ilhan Omar is a scandalous woman with numerous allegations centering immigration fraud and marrying her own brother. According to...

    Bruce Thornton is a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. That phrase is how Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn described the 20th century’s catalogue of horrors: two world wars, fascism, communism, Nazism, mass slaughter, the Cold War and its apocalyptic stakes–“oceans of blood and mountains of corpses, Auschwitz and the Gulag,” as George Weigel put it. And that catalogue continues today in Ukraine, with mechanized violence and wanton inhumanity on a scale we haven’t seen since 1945. Yet today our social, political, and cultural dysfunctions are more insidious, as over the last few decades they have distributed, promoted, and indulged...

    It's bad all over for the man who's "been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades." as former CIA director Bob Gates famously put it in his memoirs. The United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia wouldn't take his phone calls. The European states are stepping forward as the chief problem solvers to the Ukraine dilemma. Venezuela apparently laughed in his face when he asked them to pump more oil. El Salvador's president tweeted about America as a nation in decline, rotting from within. How many Ukrainian refugees has China accepted? And...

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Saudi Arabia said on Monday that it “won’t bear any responsibility” for a shortage in global oil supplies after a fierce barrage of attacks by Yemen’s Houthi rebels affected production in the kingdom, the world’s largest oil exporter. The unusually stark warning marked a departure from the giant oil producer’s typically cautious statements, as Saudi officials remain aware that even their smallest comments can swing the price of oil and rattle global markets. The state-run Saudi Press Agency quoted the Saudi Foreign Ministry as saying that the kingdom “declares that it will not bear...

Now that Biden shut down access to oil drilling projects, pipelines and production projects in the US they are reaching out to America’s enemies to import oil and gas. According to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, importing Venezuela oil is “not an active conversation at this time.” So Saudi, Emirati and Venezuelan leaders have all told beggar Joe Biden to pound sand. Saudi and Emirati leaders rejected requested phone calls with Joe Biden amid the Ukraine-Russia conflict and oil crisis, The Wall Street...

    Left-wing host of “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah, raised eyebrows when he slammed President Biden over reports that leaders in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) refused to take calls from the White House. Noah suggested that under former President Donald Trump, nobody would have dared ignore such phone calls. “Look, I know it’s hard to arrange those calls. You know, Riyadh is eight hours ahead, Biden is asleep by 4 p.m., it’s a narrow window to make it work,” Noah quipped.

    America, in these halcyon days of Old Joe Biden’s foundering regime, is in free fall, and the whole world knows it. As PJM’s inimitable Stephen Green put it recently, “The alleged American president’s response to the Ukraine War has been so detrimental to America’s own interests that everyone sees him as weak. Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that two of the Middle East’s richest petrostates wouldn’t even take Biden’s call,” that is, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The reasons for the unprecedented snub are clear: the Saudis and the UAE know that Biden is not a...

    New York/Abu Dhabi (CNN Business)The oil market has been stretched incredibly thin, with few producers willing — or able — to replace Russian barrels banned by the United States and shunned by others. Enter the United Arab Emirates, which suggested it may be coming to the rescue. The UAE's ambassador to Washington, Yousef Al Otaiba, told CNN Wednesday that the country wants to increase oil production and will encourage the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) cartel to ramp up supply. Otaiba's comments sent oil prices dropping like a rock Wednesday. US oil fell 12% to less than $109...
