Donald Trump threatens Kim Jong-un with military action after cancelling meeting

  
Donald Trump threatened Kim Jong-un with military action on Thursday as he returned to bellicose rhetoric after cancelling their June 12 summit in Singapore.  The US president said the American military was "ready if necessary" to react with its allies should North Korea take any "foolish or reckless acts".  Mr Trump had formally pulled the plug on his historic meeting with Kim earlier in the day through a letter released by the White House.  The US president wrote to Kim: "We were informed that the meeting was requested by North Korea, but that to us is totally irrelevant. I was very much looking to being there with you. "Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting." Mr Trump said "this missed opportunity is a truly sad moment in history" and appeared open to the talks being rearranged, saying: "If you change your mind having to do with this most important summit, please do not hesitate to call me or write." Sadly, I was forced to cancel the Summit Meeting in Singapore with Kim Jung Un. pic.twitter.com/qEoi9ymUEz— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 24, 2018 But the US president also issued a clear threat: "You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used." Mr Trump later said he had talked to James Mattis, the US defence secretary, and the US joint chiefs of staff, adding that "our military… is ready if necessary".  The announcement appeared to blindside the South Koreans, with President Moon Jae-in summoning his top aides to a late-night meeting and later expressing "deep regret".  Mike Pompeo, the US secretary of state, declined to say whether South Korea or Japan – both American allies - had been notified of the cancellation before it was made public. North Korea has announced that they will dismantle Nuclear Test Site this month, ahead of the big Summit Meeting on June 12th. Thank you, a very smart and gracious gesture!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 12, 2018 The move follows the sudden deterioration in North Korean-US relations over the last fortnight after months of diplomatic improvements.  Donald Trump N Korea letter The immediate trigger for Mr Trump's letter appeared to be criticism of Mike Pence, the US vice president, by a senior North Korean official.  Mr Pence had said in an interview on Monday that the Libyan model – where Muammar Gaddafi gave up his nuclear programme in the early 2000s – would only be used "if Kim Jong-un doesn't make a deal".  The Libyan comparison had previously angered North Korea given Gaddafi, the Libyan leader, was eventually toppled and killed by a mob in 2011.  Choe Son-hui, a senior North Korean official, reacted on Thursday by calling Mr Pence a "political dummy" whose remarks had been "unbridled and impudent".  "As a person involved in US affairs, I cannot suppress my surprise at such ignorant and stupid remarks gushing from the mouth of the US vice-president," Ms Choe said.  She added: "Whether the US will meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown is entirely dependent upon the decision and behaviour of the United States." But Mr Trump's decision to pull the meeting – deemed so historic that the White House Communications Agency had already minted commemorative coins – had been developing for days.  Mr Trump said Kim's recent rhetoric was to blame Credit: AFP North Korea last week publicly rejected Mr Trump's stance that the regime should unilaterally denuclearise before any economic sanctions were lifted.  Mr Pompeo revealed on Thursday that America had reached out to North Korea in recent days to discuss details for the summit but had not had a response.  The developments came despite North Korea blowing up its Punggye-ri nuclear test site, in the country's northeast. Journalists present reported hearing a "huge explosion".  Mr Tr

It is the latest case to highlight the fraught relationship between black communities and law enforcement across the US. In Milwaukee, there have been several recent protests over controversial police interactions with black people – including the deadly shooting of a 23-year-old in 2016. The newly-released body cam footage of Brown's arrest shows him initially detained by one officer for parking in a handicapped zone at around 2:00 am on January 26. This Jan. 26, 2018 police body-camera footage released by Milwaukee Police Department shows NBA Bucks guard Sterling Brown talking to arresting police officers Credit: AP Brown, 23, engages in tense dialogue with the officer and gives him his identification. The officer tells him that he is waiting for additional backup. "We're figuring out what we're gonna do. Whether we're giving you a ticket, whatever," the unidentified officer says. "You can't do that by yourself?" Brown asks, questioning why he was being detained for such a long time over a parking violation. Soon, at least six additional officers surround Brown and one of them yells: "Take your hands out of your pockets now!" Brown responds: "No. I got stuff in my hands."

The city's Mayor Tom Barrett said the video raised "concerns." "Members (of the police department) acted inappropriately, and those members were recently disciplined," Chief Morales said at a news conference. "I am sorry this incident escalated to this level," he added, without detailing the disciplinary action taken or releasing the names of the officers involved. Milwaukee Police Department apologised over the incident involving NBA Bucks guard Sterling Brown Credit: AP Brown was issued a parking citation, but not charged with any criminal offence. In a statement, he vowed to take legal action against Milwaukee police. "What should have been a simple parking ticket turned into an attempt at police intimidation, followed by the unlawful use of physical force," Brown said. He cited a number of recent high-profile cases of black men and boys killed during interactions with police, including Laquan McDonald in Chicago and Eric Garner in New York. "Black men shouldn't have to have their guard up and instantly be on the defensive when seeing a police officer, but it's our reality and a real problem," Brown said. The Bucks also released a statement, calling the incident "shameful and inexcusable." "We are grateful for the service of many good police officers that courageously protect us, our fans and our city, but racial biases and abuses of power must not be ignored," the team said. Milwaukee has had several protests over police conduct, putting the city on edge ahead of the video's release. In August 2016, Milwaukee saw two days of arson and civil unrest after police shot and killed Sylville Smith, a black suspect, after a brief foot chase. Cognizant of that history, police officials reached out to multiple community leaders and politicians prior to the video's publication online, according to local media. On social media, the reaction to the video was fierce, with Sterling Brown's name quickly trending on Twitter and several teammates posting a photo on various platforms that said simply: "STANDWITHSTERLING." "I think what we just saw happen to Sterling as NBA Family we should all support him," teammate Brandon Jennings tweeted. "We the NBPA stand firmly, not only wit

The engine under the hood of the 2019 Mercedes-AMG E53 sedan also produces the same 429 horsepower and 384 lb.-ft. of torque as it does elsewhere, but perhaps the standout point of this powerplant is the 48-volt ultra-mild hybrid assist system it also shares with its siblings.

US denies involvement in Syria missile strike which kills 12

  
A dozen pro-regime fighters were killed in an air strike on Syrian army positions a monitor said Thursday, claiming the attack was carried out by the US-led coalition, but the Pentagon denied the report. State media reported the overnight air raid in an area where both the regime and coalition have been battling holdout jihadists, but said it only caused material damage. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which relies on a broad network of sources across Syria, said the strike had hit army positions south of Albu Kamal, a town on the border with Iraq. "At least three vehicles were destroyed by the strike," said Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman. He said the 12 pro-regime fighters killed were not Syrians, but he could not provide more details on their identity. A military source quoted by state news agency SANA said "some of our military positions between Albu Kamal and Hmeimeh were hit this morning in an aggression by American coalition warplanes". A United Nations Truce Supervision Organisation military observer uses binoculars near the border with Syria in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights Credit: BAZ RATNER/Reuters The Pentagon denied the strikes were carried out by the coalition fighting the Islamic State group. "These reports are false, the coalition did not strike any Syrian army positions in eastern Syria," said Pentagon spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Kone Faulkner. "The coalition's mission is to defeat ISIS (IS) in designated parts of Iraq and Syria, and to set conditions for follow-on stability operations. This mission has not changed." Less than 24 hours after the overnight strikes, missiles targeted a weapons depot belonging to Lebanon's Hezbollah movement at an airbase in the central province of Homs, according to the Observatory. A member of the pro-government forces puts a portrait of the Syrian president on a military weapon Credit:  LOUAI BESHARA/AFP Its director Abdel Rahman said the missiles "would have been fired by Israel". SANA said Syrian air defences had intercepted the missiles in Homs, but reported explosions in the area. Albu Kamal and Hmeimeh lie in Syria's eastern Deir Ezzor province, where Russian-backed Syrian troops and the US-led coalition have been waging separate offensives against IS. A "de-confliction" line in place along the Euphrates River since last year is meant to keep the two assaults from crashing into each other. Loyalist troops are present west of the river while the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are on the east. A military source from forces allied to Syria's government said the strikes had targeted two regime military positions near a frontline with IS. Syrian security forces enter the town of Rastan in the central Homs province on May 16, 2018 after rebels and their relatives were evacuated Credit:  LOUAI BESHARA/AFP "There are no Iranian or Lebanese fighters among the dead," the source said. Iraqi Shiite militia are also fighting alongside Syrian regime forces in the area. The Observatory said the government was sending reinforcements. It was not immediately clear whether jihadists were active in the area at the time, nor whether the pro-regime casualties may have been accidental. The coalition has carried out several deadly strikes against Syrian government forces and allied fighters in recent months. In February, coalition bombing raids in Deir Ezzor province killed at least 100 regime and allied fighters, including Russian nationals, in retaliation for an attack on SDF positions. And in September 2016, US-led strikes on regime military positions in the east left more than 60 Syrian troops dead. The coalition later said it had mistaken the fighters for IS jihadists.

MH17: Plane shot down with Russian military missile launcher, investigators conclude

  
An international investigation has said the Russian military brought the missile that downed Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 into eastern Ukraine, leading to the tragedy that killed 298 people.  The Dutch-led Joint Investigation Team said last year the Buk 9M38 surface-to-air missile in question arrived from Russia and was fired from territory held by Russia-backed separatists.  But Thursday's press conference in the Netherlands for the first time implicated the Russian military, of which president Vladimir Putin is the commander in chief, in the catastrophe that shocked the world in July 2014.  Although the JIT did not say who pulled the trigger, the conclusion that the 53rd anti-aircraft brigade from Kursk, a unit of a "few hundred people," was operating the missile marks a step closer to naming the perpetrators.  Investigators said they were working toward a court case in the Netherlands against those who fired the Buk Telar missile system as well as higher-ups in their chain of command. They are reportedly focusing on 100 or so suspects.  Dutch police investigator Wilbert Paulissen next to the engine casing and thrust nozzile of the missile that brought down MH17 Credit: FRANCOIS LENOIR /Reuters The allegations come after Yulia Skripal said she was lucky to have survived an "attempted assassination" with a nerve agent in Salisbury, raising pressure on Russia three weeks before the start of the World Cup here.  The JIT said it had again requested information from Russia, which had failed to tell it of this missile unit's activities, and put out another open call for confidential witness testimony.  "We are looking for people that were directly or indirectly involved in the downing of MH17, but we're also thinking of individuals who were responsible for the operation that deployed the Buk Telar," said Wilbert Paulissen, head of the Dutch national police. Russian officials began pushing back against the Dutch allegation almost immediately. Moscow has since the days after the plane went down put out a raft of unlikely theories to shift the blame to Ukraine and vetoed a proposed United Nations tribunal. Video: The Telegraph's Roland Oliphant visits site of downed jet Yury Shvytkin, a member of parliament from the ruling party, called the investigation "aggression against our country like that during the Skripal case" and claimed it would have to "at the minimum" find a soldier's fingerprints on the Buk missile to accuse Moscow. One of the two main Russian state television channels ignored the news on Thursday afternoon, while the other posted a news item on its website that avoided any mention of the Russian military involvement.  The defence ministry could not immediately be reached for comment, even as it continued to post on social media footage tanks and ships at war games. Those killed when the missile hit MH17 at 33,000 feet, raining bodies and debris onto the farm fields below, were mostly Dutch but also of 17 other nationalities including British, Australian, Malaysian and Indonesian. Mr Paulissen said a "fingerprint for the missile" had been established through seven markings and features on the sides of the launcher visible in social media images. Photographs, videos and witness testimony traced the progress of this launcher in a convoy from Kursk to the Ukrainian border in June 2014, and it was photographed again near the launch site on the day of the catastrophe.  Investigators also detonated a Buk missile to compare the debris to that found in the fields and bodies of MH17 victims, according to Australian federal police commander Jennifer Hurst. She displayed an engine casing and thrust nozzle from the Buk responsible with a serial number she said indicated it had been produced at a factory near Moscow in 1986.

Iran's supreme leader threatens to resume nuclear programme if Europe doesn't guarantee lost oil revenues

  
Iran's supreme leader has threatened to pull his country out of the nuclear deal and resume enriching uranium if European countries do not promise to buy Iranian oil and to oppose all new US sanctions against Tehran. Three days after US secretary of state Mike Pompeo delivered America's extensive list of demands of Iran for a new nuclear agreement, Ayatollah Khamenei laid out his own demands of European countries for Iran to stay in the 2015 deal. "If the Europeans hesitate in responding to our demands, Iran is entitled to resuming its nuclear activities," he said in a statement. The sweeping demands are likely to be rejected by Britain, France and Germany - diminishing the already narrow hopes of saving of the 2015 nuclear agreement. The ayatollah made five demands of the European countries. He called on them to "guarantee the total sales of Iran's oil", meaning that Europe must promise to make up for any oil sales from third countries which are cancelled because of US sanctions. Such a guarantee would potentially cost Europe billions of dollars. Mike Pompeo Iran demands The ayatollah said European banks "must guarantee business transactions with the Islamic Republic", even in the face of US sanctions. European banks that continue to deal with Iran in the face of US restrictions could be blacklisted and frozen out of the American financial system. He called on the Europeans to issue a UN security council resolution condemning Donald Trump's decision to leave the Iran deal and said Europea "must confront imposition of any sanctions on the Islamic Republic and stand firmly against US sanctions on Iran". Finally, he said the Europeans "must guarantee it will not raise the issue of the Islamic Republic's missiles and regional affairs". The ayatollah may have staked out a deliberately maximalist position to give more room for the Iranian foreign minister, Javad Zarif, to appear conciliatory in his own meetings with the Europeans to try to save the nuclear agreement. Mr Zarif and other reformist figures with the Iranian regime are eager to preserve the deal, while more hardline politicians and elements with the Revolutionary Guard want to see it scrapped. The supreme leader has the final decision. Javad Zarif, the Iranian foreign minister, is on a diplomatic mission to preserve the Iran deal  Credit: REUTERS/Francois Lenoir But if Iran's real red lines are even close to the sweeping demands made by the ayatollah it is unlikely that the Europeans will be able to satisfy Tehran. A Foreign Office spokeswoman did not directly address the ayatollah's demands but said the UK, along with the EU, "continues to view the nuclear deal as a vital factor in our shared security". "We have raised with the US the need to make allowance for continued economic ties between Europe and Iran to ensure we can meet our obligations under the deal," a spokeswoman said.  The two positions staked out this week - one by Mr Pompeo and the other by Ayatollah Khamenei - leave a narrow and treacherous path for European diplomats as they try to salvage the 2015 agreement. Mr Pompeo said the US would inflict the "strongest sanctions in history" on Iran unless it agreed to 12 American demands, including withdrawing from Syria and halting its funding of militant groups like Hizbollah and Hamas. Iran's government flatly rejected Mr Pompeo's list of demands. "Who are you to decide for Iran and the world?" said Hassan Rouhani, the Iranian president. European countries also expressed scepticism about Mr Pompeo's plan to merge a nuclear agreement with broader issues about Iran's missile systems and its behaviour in the Middle East. Boris Johnson, the foreign secretary, said "a new jumbo Iran negotiation" would be very difficult to achieve and said the world should stick with the 2015 agreement instead.......
