Americas/Europe/POLITICA di

Le imprese italiane guardano con estremo interesse alle opportunità di sviluppo offerte dalla Colombia, sia per il livello di crescita economica sia per l’elevato grado di apertura al mercato”

Questo è un estratto delle dichiarazioni date dal Ministro degli Esteri Angelino Alfano, dichiarazioni che si riconducono all’incontro avvenuto alla Farnesina il 13 Dicembre, nella “Conferenza Italia-America Latina e Caraibi”. Uno scambio di vedute e di apertura da parte delle diverse Nazioni coinvolte, che ha visto ospiti in questo incontro nomi di grande calibro quali: il ministro degli Esteri del Costa Rica Manuel Gonzàlez Sanz; il Ministro degli Esteri della Colombia Maria Angela Holguin Cuellar ed hanno altresì partecipato i ministri degli Esteri del: Sant Lucia; El Salvador e Bolivia.

Il nostro Ministro degli Esteri ha rilasciato ulteriori dichiarazioni riguardanti il rapporto con lo Stato del Costa Rica, facendo emergere altresì l’importanza di tali relazioni e scambi. Punto focale è l’importanza del sostegno reciproco in svariati settori che vanno dall’agricolo ai trasporti, per i quali sono stati stipulati dei veri e propri accordi (ricordiamo la Visita Ufficiale in Italia del Presidente costaricano Solis nel 2016).

Nel corso dell’incontro, oltre agli argomenti ricaduti sullo scambio bilaterale, ci si è soffermati anche su altri grandi tematiche internazionali di grande attualità, sentite da tutte le nazioni coinvolte all’incontro; parole importanti sono state dunque spese per la problematica della criminalità organizzata sui diversi sistemi di controllo ed infine sui flussi migratori, fenomeno che deve essere gestito e contenuto sempre nel rispetto dei diritti umani.

Lenìn Moreno approaches the first-round victory in Ecuador

Americas/BreakingNews @en di

Lenín Moreno, former Vice President of Ecuador and presidential candidate for the Socialist party Alianza País, would be close to a victory in the first round, the data provided by the National Electoral Council speak of a Moreno ahead by 11 percentage points, the conservative candidate Guillermo Lasso which stops at 28% of the votes against 39% of Moreno, they were scrutinized around the 87% of the votes are ballot. Contrary to Lasso’s claims the National Electoral Council has ensured that until now have been no irregularities neither in the voting process neither in the ballot of the votes. The Moreno’s victory seems almost certain but some analysts point out that if it does not reach 40% in the first round should go to the runoff voting with Lasso and then it would be possible that a large coalition led by the same might not be able to get the necessary votes to win the presidency, but almost certainly could not do get a large majority in Parliament in favor of Moreno.

Guterres: the US decision to block a former Palestinian PM was a serious mistake

Americas/BreakingNews @en di

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says that the US decision to block a former Palestinian prime minister from leading the UN political mission in Libya was “a serious mistake”. Washington blocked the proposed appointment of Salam Fayyad, the Palestinian Authority’s prime minister from 2007 to 2013, a week ago. It said it was acting to support its ally, Israel. Speaking at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday, Guterres said: “I believe that it’s essential for everybody to understand that people serving the UN are serving in their personal capacities. They don’t represent a country or a government”. Guterres said that Fayyad “was the right person in the right place at the right time” Palestinians condemned the decision. US ambassador Nikki Haley announced she was blocking the appointment because “for too long, the UN has been unfairly biased in favour of the Palestinian Authority to the detriment of our allies in Israel”. Palestine Liberation Organisation executive committee member Hanan Ashrawi dismissed the “flimsy excuse” for a move she described as “unconscionable”. “Blocking the appointment of Dr Salam Fayyad is a case of blatant discrimination on the basis of national identity”, she said. Fayyad had been tapped to replace Martin Kobler of Germany, who has been the Libya envoy since November 2015.

Hezbollah: meeting Trump-Netanyahu and the death of the negotiations

Lebanese Hezbollah said on Thursday the outcome of U.S. President Donald Trump’s meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had effectively signaled an end to peaceful negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. “After what came out after the meeting between Netanyahu and Trump, I am not exaggerating if I say that yesterday there was a semi-official announcement of the death of the path of negotiations”, Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said in a live televised speech. Trump on Wednesday dropped a U.S. commitment to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Washington’s longstanding policy on the Middle East. “For the Israelis, there is no such thing as a Palestinian state” Nasrallah said, adding that the two-state solution was the only thing keeping the door to negotiations open.

Americas/BreakingNews @en di

The resignation of National Security Advisor have brought to light the issue of unclear relationships between the new administration Trump and the Russian government, many Republican lawmakers claim that is made clarity on the subject, not only through the establishment of a bipartisan commission of inquiry but also through in-depth investigation by the Intelligence Agencies.

In this sense, the President has renewed yesterday, during a press conference with Israeli Prime Minister, his esteem for the former Advisor Michael Flynn that,according to Trump,would be victim of “mistreatment by the media
