Trump doesn’t foresee China trade deal before 2020

Washington, Sep 21 US President Donald Trump has said that he does not foresee a “complete” trade agreement with China before the 2020 presidential election.

“We’re looking for a complete deal. I’m not looking for a partial deal,” Trump said at a press conference with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison here on Friday.

He said he does not believe it will be possible to reach a trade deal with Beijing before US elections in November next year, reports Efe news.

“I don’t think I need it before the election. I think people know that we’re doing a great job,” he added.

Trump said that China’s previous agreement to buy agricultural products would not be enough.

He insisted that his relationship with the Chinese president Xi Jinping is “very amazing” and described the ongoing trade dispute as a “little spat”.

He added that “China is being affected very badly” by the successive rounds of tariffs imposed by both countries, referring to a slowdown in the pace of economic growth in the Asian nation but insisted that it had not affected the US.

“We’re doing very well. Our economy is very strong,” he continued.

The US government recently approved two multi-million dollar financial assistance programmes to help farmers who have been affected by the loss of access to the Chinese market.

Negotiating teams from both countries are planning to resume talks next week.

Trade tensions between the two largest world economies, which began after Trump’s arrival at the White House in 2017, have gone beyond bilateral relations and had profound global consequences.

The International Monetary Fund downgraded its projections of global expansion to 3.2 per cent this year in its latest global growth forecasts released in July, one tenth less than in April.

It is also likely to reduce them again in a report that will be released during its annual Assembly next October in Washington.

French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday urged his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to urgently shed light on the “attempted murder” of opposition figure Alexei Navalny after French tests confirmed the use of the Novichok nerve agent, the Elysée said.

Macron told Putin in telephone talks that it is “imperative that all light be shed, without delay, on the circumstances of this attempted murder and who is responsible”, the French presidency said in a statement.

He also informed Putin that France’s own analysis had confirmed Germany’s conclusion that Navalny was poisoned by Novichok “in contravention of international norms on using chemical weapons”.

Putin, for his part, told Macron that it was “inappropriate” to make groundless accusations against Russia over the suspected poisoning of Navalny, the Kremlin said.

The Russian leader said his country wanted Germany to hand over medical test results taken from Navalny, according to a Kremlin readout of the call.

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny detained after landing in Moscow

Russian prison service said he was detained for multiple violations of parole and terms of a suspended prison sentence.

Alexei Navalny

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was detained at a Moscow airport after returning from Germany on Sunday, the prison service said.

The prison service said he was detained for multiple violations of parole and terms of a suspended prison sentence and would be held in custody until a court makes a decision in his case.

Mr. Navalny, who is President Vladimir Putin’s most prominent and determined foe, had spent the previous five months in Germany recovering from a nerve agent attack that he blamed on the Kremlin.

Mr. Navalny decided to leave Berlin of his own free will and wasn’t under any apparent pressure to leave from Germany.

The prison service made the announcement after the flight carrying Mr. Navalny landed in the Russian capital, though at a different airport than had been scheduled. It was a possible attempt to outwit journalists and supporters who wanted to witness Mr. Navalny’s return.

The prison service last week issued a warrant for his arrest, saying he had violated the terms of suspended sentence he received on a 2014 conviction for embezzlement. The prison service has asked a Moscow court to turn Mr. Navalny’s 3 1/2-year suspended sentence into a real one.

After boarding the Moscow flight in Berlin on Sunday, Mr. Navalny said of the prospect of arrest: “It’s impossible; I’m an innocent man.”

The Kremlin has repeatedly denied a role in the opposition leader’s poisoning.

Jerusalem, Jan 17 : At least 13 Israelis suffered mild facial paralysis as a side effect after receiving the first Covid vaccine jabs, the Health Ministry said, adding that the count could be higher.

The officials have raised questions on whether or not to administer the second dose to these individuals the Health Ministry had recommended for the second dose, reported the Jerusalem Post.

“For at least 28 hours, I walked around with it (facial paralysis),” one person who had the side effect told Ynet.

“I can’t say it was completely gone afterwards, but other than that I had no other pains, except a minor pain where the injection was, but there was nothing beyond that.”

As for receiving the second dose, he admits he is undecided, but says that “it is important to note that this is something rare, and I don’t want people to avoid getting vaccinated – it’s important”.

“I recently came across, for example, someone vaccinated who was dealing with paralysis, and decided not to give her a second dose,” Galia Rahav, Director of the Infectious Diseases Unit at Sheba Medical Centre told Ynet.

“It is true that it can be given according to the Health Ministry, but I did not feel comfortable with it.”

She added that, “No one knows if this is connected to the vaccine or not. That’s why I would refrain from giving a second dose to someone who suffered from paralysis after the first dose.”

However, the Health Ministry has assured of the second dose only when the paralysis passes, Ynet reported.
