Blinken vows ‘relentless’ efforts to help Americans and others to leave Afghanistan WHO opens air bridge to Afghanistan with medical supplies U.S. says North Korea nuclear report shows “urgent need for dialogue” -official All of Russia’s latest weapons tested in Syria, says defense chief Russian cosmonauts find new cracks in ISS module Secretary of State Antony Blinken vowed on Monday (August 30) after the U.S. militaryncompleted its withdrawal from Afghanistan that the Biden administration will keep up “relentless” efforts to help Americans, Afghans and others leave the country if theynchoose to do so. Speaking at the State Department, Blinken said less than 200 Americans were believed to have remained in Afghanistan. “Now U.S. military flights have ended and our troops have departed Afghanistan. A new chapter of America’s engagement with Afghanistan has begun. It’s one in which we will lead with our diplomacy. The military mission is over. A new diplomatic mission has begun. Our commitment to them and to all Americans in Afghanistan and everywhere in the world continues. The protection and welfare of Americans abroad remains the State Department’s most vital and enduring mission. If an American in Afghanistan tells us that they want to stay for now and then in a week or a month or a year, they reach out and say, I’ve changed my mind, we will help them leave. Additionally, we’ve worked intensely to evacuate and relocate Afghans who worked alongside us and are in particular risk ofnreprisal. We’ve gotten many out, but many are still there. We will keep working to helpnthem. Our commitment to them has no deadline.” “As of today, we suspended our diplomatic presence in Kabul and transferred ournoperations to Doha, Qatar. We will hold the Taliban to its pledge to let people freely depart Afghanistan. The Taliban has committed to let anyone with proper documents leave the country in a safe and orderly manner.” Kabul residents on Monday (August 30) criticized the recent airstrikes launched bynUnited States in the country, saying that U.S. has always pursued its own interests andnsacrificed Afghans in this way. “They (Americans) do not have a legal license to carry out attacks in Afghanistannarbitrarily,” said Borhan Nezami, a Kabul resident. The strike, first reported by Reuters, is the second carried out by U.S. forces innAfghanistan since an Islamic State suicide bomber struck the airport on Thursday, killing 13 U.S. troops and scores of Afghan civilians trying to flee the country. The collapse of the Afghan government leaves an administrative vacuum that has led to fears of an economic crisis and widespread hunger. Prices for commodities like flour, oil and rice are rapidly rising and the currency isnplunging, with money changers across the border in Pakistan already refusing to accept the afghani. The authorities of northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region hope the Afghan Taliban would draw a clear line with all terrorist organizations and fight all forms of terror crimes including the Eastern Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM), said a local official on Monday. At a press conference on Xinjiang-related Issues in Beijing, Elijan Anayat, spokesman of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region People’s Government, noted that China is the largest neighbor of Afghanistan, and the gathering of terrorist forces like the ETIM innAfghanistan has posed direct threats to peace and stability of Xinjiang. For a long period of time, terrorist forces, such as the ETIM, have incited, planned andncarried out a series of violent activities under the cover of religion as well as violent terrorist ideology in a bid to split Xinjiang from China, which has caused great harm tonpeople’s life and property. Xinjiang authorities’ determination on cracking down the terrorist forces like the ETIM, safeguarding the lives and property of the people of all ethnic groups, and maintaining social stability and national unity is unwavering, Anayat said. A plane carrying World Health Organization medicines and health supplies landed innAfghanistan on Monday, the UN health agency said, the first shipment to get in since the country came under the control of the Taliban. “After days of non-stop work to find a solution, I am very pleased to say that we have now been able to partially replenish stocks of health facilities in Afghanistan and ensure that — for now – WHO-supported health services can continue,” Ahmed Al Mandhari,nWHO regional director for the eastern Mediterranean, said in a statement. The WHO had warned on Friday that medical supplies would run out within days in Afghanistan, announcing that it hoped to establish an air bridge into the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif by then with the help of Pakistani authorities. The 12.5 tonnes of supplies that arrived on Monday consist of trauma kits and emergency health kits, enough to cover the basic health needs of more than 200,000 people as well as provide 3,500 surgical procedures and treat 6,500 trauma patients, the WHO said. They will be delivered to 40 health facilities in 29 provinces across Afghanistan, it added. The plane, which was provided by the government of Pakistan, flew from Dubai tonMazar-i-Sharif airport. It was the first of three flights planned with Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) to fill urgent shortages in medicines and medical supplies in Afghanistan. A U.N. watchdog report that North Korea appears to have restarted a nuclear reactornreflects an urgent need for dialogue and the United States is seeking to address the issue with Pyongyang, a senior administration official said on Monday. The International Atomic Energy Agency said in its report dated Friday that the signs of operation at the 5-megawatt (MW) reactor, which is seen as capable of producin weapons-grade plutonium, were the first to be spotted since late 2018 The United States is coordinating closely with its allies and partners on developments in North Korea, the official said. The IAEA report came on the heels of a four-day visit to South Korea by President Joe Biden’s special envoy for North Korea, Sung Kim. That visit came as a brief thaw in inter-Korean relations in July gave way to a newnstandoff over U.S.-South Korean military exercises that North Korea has warned could trigger a security crisis. The nine-day joint exercise began on Aug. 16, Kim told reporters in Seoul during his visit that the United States has no hostile intentntoward North Korea and is open to meeting any time and any place. Biden’s administration has said it will explore diplomacy to achieve North Koreanndenuclearization, but shown no willingness to ease sanctions. All of the Russian latest weapon systems have been tested in the counter-terror operation in Syria, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said in an exclusive interview for thenSolovyov-Live YouTube Channel on Monday. The Russian defense industry has considerably strengthened its positions in recent years, Shoigu noted. “For this purpose, the program of modernizing the defense industry was adopted and funding was poured into enterprises,” the defense chief said. “The requirements for fulfilling the defense procurement plan have risen dramatically.nOver the past nine years, we have received 15,500 weapon systems for the ground forces. In 1999-2002, we had gotten 10 or 19 aircraft at best, that is, fixed-and rotary-wingnaircraft all together. That’s why now that we receive 140-150 aircraft annually, this isnquite a different story,” the defense chief emphasized. Russian cosmonauts have discovered new cracks in a segment of the International Space Station that could widen, a senior space official said on Monday, the latest in a series of setbacks. “Superficial fissures have been found in some places on the Zarya module,” VladimirnSolovyov, chief engineer of rocket and space corporation Energia, told RIA news agency. “This is bad and suggests that the fissures will begin to spread over time.” He did not say if the cracks had caused any air to leak. The space official has said previously that much of the International Space Station’snequipment is starting to age and has warned there could be an “avalanche” of broken equipment after 2025 The space station has suffered several recent incidents. Russian officials last month said a software glitch, and a possible lapse in human attention, were to blame for throwing the ISS out of control. Jet thrusters on the Russian research module Nauka inadvertently reignited a few hours after it had docked, causing the entire orbital outpost to pitch out of its normal flight position with seven crew members aboard. Roscosmos, Russia’s space agency, also reported last month a drop in pressure in the Zvezda service module, which provides living quarters for crew members on the ISS that was caused by an air leak. The Russian space agency, Roscosmos, has said it will remain part of the ISS until 2024nand that it is open to extending its participation beyond then. The China National Space Administration (CNSA) released new photos on Mondayncaptured by China’s Mars rover Zhurong, as it has traveled for a total of 100 Martian days after having driven down to the Martian surface from its landing platform. The six-wheeled solar-powered rover, resembling a blue butterfly and with a mass of 240 kg, has traveled 889 meters on the surface of Mars and its scientific payloads have garnered around 10 gigabytes of primary data since its touchdown in mid-May, thenCNSA said. China’s Tianwen-1 mission, consisting of an orbiter, a lander and a rover, was launchednon July 23, 2020 from the Wenchang Satellite Launch Center in south China’s Hainan Province. On February 10, 2021, China’s Tianwen-1 probe successfully entered orbit around Mars after a nearly seven-month voyage from Earth. On February 10, 2021, China’s Tianwen-1 probe successfully entered orbit around Mars after a nearly seven-month voyage from Earth. Zhurong drove down from its landing platform to the Martian surface on May 22, starting its exploration of the red planet ever since. Amid a worsening fuel crisis in Lebanon and increasing power blackouts, Lebanesencitizen Mohammad Chehab found relief in installing solar power supply in his house tonprovide him and his family with around-the-clock electricity. As the country suffers what the World Bank has described as one of the deepestndepressions of modern history, shortages of fuel this month have meant state-powerednelectricity has been available for barely a few hours a day if at all. “The pressure and stress we feel from electricity cuts, be it from the family or yourself coming home to no power, no light and no cold water to drink especially during the summer, is in itself a good reason to look for an alternative source of electricity,” thendrone operator in his thirties said. The renewable energy solution, although not new to Lebanon and the world, has becomenmore popular in Lebanon in recent months despite a deepening economic and financialncrisis that has hit the small Middle Eastern country. One company that installs solar panel systems, Mectric Engineers, had to double their installing teams from two to four. According to its co-founder and manager Alain Bou Nasr, half of people who now call them for information are buying it – in comparisonnwith “maybe 5%” earlier. On the positive side, people got to know this (solution) and discoverednthat in Lebanon, we have more than 300 sunny days and we can rely on sun for more than 10 months a year, this is positive, people are starting to install,” Bou Nasr said. Lebanon’s worsening fuel crisis has reached a painful crunch point, with bakeries,nbusinesses and hospitals either scaling back operations or shutting down completely, making life even harder for Lebanese already enduring a financial meltdown. Many say living conditions are worse than during the 1975-90 civil war. It marks a new low in the financial crisis that erupted in late 2019, the result of decades of corruption and mismanagement by a ruling elite that has failed to find solutions as more than half the population has sunk into poverty.
