Border tension: Trump offers to negotiate between India and China

 New Delhi: US President Donald Trump on Wednesday offered to negotiate between India and China and help resolve the ongoing statemale in the borders. "We have informed both India and China that the United States is ready, willing and able to mediate or arbitrate their now raging border dispute. Thank you!," Trump tweeted. The missive from the US President came close on the heels of May 5, 2020 development when Chinese troops tried to block an Indian patrol in the Pangong lake region of eastern Ladakh. Similar problems largely due to provocation from China came in the Galwan valley in Ladakh and in the Nathu La mountain pass in Sikkim. Relations between contemporary China and India have been characterised by border disputes, resulting in military conflicts — including the Sino-Indian War of 1962. In 2017, the two countries clashed at the Doklam plateau along the disputed Sino-Bhutanese border. However, things were later defused - owing to "matured diplomacy" by both sides as was asserted by the then External…

According to the Indian Defence viewpoint, construction of the road has been halted by Chinese Border forces and satellite images have shown that China has deployed troops in Galway Valley and has deployed patrol boats on Pangong Tso Lake but India is not mentioning that its hands have been twisted by China for stopping it from occupying the territory of China as India had done with Nepal and Pakistan.

Lake is situated at a height of 14,270 feet above sea level. It is 134 km (83 mi) long. The lake is 5 km (3.1 mi) wide at its broadest point. All together it covers 604 km2.…

Strange are the ways of China. The ongoing border tensions between India and China in the Ladakh sector have revealed how Beijing operates. For instance, China wants to build roads everywhere, including in regions claimed by India, but will not allow India to do so in its own regions. China’s military wants to change the status quo in its favour but it will not countenance others wanting the same. After laying down extensive road, railway and fibre-optic networks and deploying military forces over years, now, China is trying to stop India from doing the same on the Indian side.

Why the Cummings crisis is now all about how Johnson governs

Danny Kruger, the young Tory MP who is an old friend of Dominic Cummings and his spouse, got it right last night. The “affaire Cummings” - as the French would put it - is no longer about the most powerful aide to the prime minister and the minutiae of how he interpreted coronavirus quarantine rules differently from most of the country. Kruger argued that attacks on Cummings are attacks on Boris Johnson, because the PM has so conspicuously become Cummings’s human shield. So as another Tory MP told me - a grandee no less - this is now all about the PM himself and how he governs. It is about why Boris Johnson rates Cummings so highly, and why he needs him at the centre of his government.

No10 defends refusal to review fines given to parents seeking childcare during lockdown

Downing Street has defended its decision to not review fines given to parents travelling for childcare during lockdown after Matt Hancock said he would "look into it". A Number 10 spokesman said the enforcement of fines is a matter for police. Hopes had been sparked that fines could be refunded after the health secretary, responding to a question at Tuesday evening's coronavirus press conference, said it was "perfectly reasonable" for ministers to consider a review. Mr Hancock was asked about a potential review by Martin, a vicar from Brighton, who was seemingly making reference to a trip made by the PM's chief aide Dominic Cummings from London to Durham. Mr Cummings has defended his actions, claiming he was in an exceptional circumstance and travelled to his parents house in order to be closer to childcare, should he and his wife become incapacitated by Covid-19. The advisor has received the backing of Boris Johnson and several other Cabinet ministers, leaving many to wonder whether lockdown rules were open…

White House press secretary says 'it's Joe Scarborough that has to answer' for Trump's false murder allegations

There is no "cold case" involving the 2001 death of Lori Klausutis, a constituent services staffer in a Florida congressional office of MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, then a Republican congressman. The authorities never had any doubt her death was an accident. "The President of the United States has taken something that does not belong him — the memory of my dead wife — and perverted it for perceived political gain," her widower, Timothy Klausutis, wrote in an open letter to Twitter on Tuesday.

Local lockdowns will be used to suppress infection, Hancock says

Regional flare-ups of coronavirus cases in England will result in a “local lockdown”, Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said. Mr Hancock said the ability to tighten restrictions in individual regions will be part of the NHS test, track and trace system – which is set to expand on June 1. The system will be launched shortly to contain coronavirus outbreaks and stop the spread of the virus. Experts are meeting to explain how dedicated contact tracing staff, public health experts and digital technology will work to advise those at heightened risk of having been exposed to the virus on the steps they need to take. Mr Hancock told the daily press briefing: “We will have local lockdowns in future where there are flare-ups and we have a system we are putting in place with a combination of Public Health England and the new Joint Biosecurity Centre, along with the local directors of public health who play an absolutely crucial role in the decision-making in the system, to make sure if there is a local flare-up there is…

Cruise ship study suggests asymptomatic Covid-19 may be more common than thought

Coronavirus infection without symptoms might be more common than previously thought, according to a study of people isolated on a cruise ship during the pandemic. More than 80% of the passengers and crew on the unnamed cruise ship who tested positive for Covid-19 were asymptomatic. The prevalence of the virus on affected cruise ships is therefore likely to be “significantly underestimated”, the study published in the journal Thorax concludes. “Strategies are needed to assess and monitor all passengers to prevent community transmission after disembarkation,” the Australia-based researchers said.

Irish community in Britain disproportionately affected by coronavirus, national body claims

THE Irish community across Britain has been disproportionately affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, according to a national body representing its interests. Factors such as the ageing demographic of the Irish population – which has the oldest median age of any minority ethnic group in Britain – and the number of its members who work in the NHS or other frontline settings have seen the community “truly represented” on both sides of the coronavirus crisis, the head of the Irish in Britain (IIB) organisation told The Irish Post this week. Reflecting on 10 weeks of lockdown that has seen the many older people among the Irish population across Britain forced to self-isolate in order to shield themselves from the virus, IIB CEO Brian Dalton claims the community has many to mourn but also much to celebrate as we look to a future which will be unrecognisable for a community “defined by its impulse to come together”. “Our work at Irish in Britain has always advocated for reform to address the health inequalities within…

Jimmy Kimmel dings Trump's 'brazen hypocrisy' on golfing, calls America's mask war 'the dumbest standoff ever'

"This was a weird Memorial Day," Jimmy Kimmel said on Tuesday's Kimmel Live. "I think we can all agree: Zoom barbecues suck. This weekend Donald Trump, by unauthorized presidential order, made a sweeping declaration to open all churches, temples, and places of worship, in an effort to make sure that the most devout Americans can get a chance to contract the coronavirus, too." And Trump, "a man of great faith," he deadpanned, spent Sunday morning golfing. "You know, people say he's unfit to be president — they forget, he's barely even fit to play golf," Kimmel said. "It looks bad for the president to be golfing with 100,000 Americans dead and a stay-at-home order in place, but try explaining optics to a guy who stared directly into an eclipse," he added, showing the "the brazen hypocrisy" of both Trump and Fox & Friends when it comes to presidential golfing. Along with his golfing, Trump spent Memorial Day weekend "tweeting nut-job conspiracy theories and mocking Joe Biden for wearing a mask to a Memorial Day…

Fox News' Laura Ingraham claims Democrats will make Americans wear masks 'forever'

Laura Ingraham is pushing some patently false claims about what America might look like under Democratic leadership. On Tuesday night, the Fox News host welcomed lawyer and Republican operative Harmeet Dhillon to her show to condemn Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) for ordering people to wear masks in public statewide. Dhillon falsely suggested "the masks don't work" or at least that no one can "prove they work," and then said that could provide a legal pathway to overriding Northam's order. Ingraham chimed in to claim if masks are "for safety," then "this is not a temporary thing," and then suggested if Democrats "get real power," they'll enact rules that mandate wearing masks in public "forever." For example, Laura Ingraham was plugging lawsuits against Virginia's mask mandate on the next hour of Fox. pic.twitter.com/GX3N65gZJS — Matthew Gertz (@MattGertz) May 27, 2020 Ingraham's claim is clearly untrue, seeing as most U.S. localities, including many run by Democrats, haven't mandated people wear masks when…

"No reasonable person can assert today that Hong Kong maintains a high degree of autonomy from China, given facts on the ground," Pompeo said in a Wednesday statement.

America's economic and trade relationship with Hong Kong is separate of that with China, largely exempting Hong Kong from the tariff war between the two nations.
