China to play constructive role on Syria

Sep 19 2013, 7:46pm CDT | by IANS

Washington, Sep 20 (IANS) China has stated that it will play a constructive role at the UN over the issue of usage of chemical wepaons in Syria.

Washington, Sep 20 — China has stated that it will play a constructive role at the UN over the issue of usage of chemical wepaons in Syria.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi pledged Thursday that China will play "a positive and constructive role" at the United Nations in helping resolve the crisis over Syria's chemical weapons, Xinhua reported.

Speaking to reporters after holding talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry, Wang said they had "in-depth" exchange of views on the Syrian issue.

He expressed the hope that the ongoing talks in the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) would soon yield results, by reaching an agreement on starting the process of verifying and destroying Syria's stockpile of chemical weapons.

"The UN Security Council should politically recognise and support such agreement. It should be united, instead of being divided, and speak with one voice. China is willing to play a positive and constructive role," Wang said.

In his opening remarks before the talks with Kerry, Wang said China welcomes the framework agreement reached not long ago by the US and Russia on ridding Syria of its chemical weapons.

"Ultimately, the issue of Syria needs to be resolved through political means. The Chinese side will continue to play a positive and constructive role in that direction," the Chinese diplomat said.

Kerry, in his opening remarks, said the US appreciates China's support for a political solution to the Syrian crisis, which Washington believes is "ultimately available and possible".

While acknowledging the sharp disagreement between the two countries over the international response to Syria's alleged use of chemical weapons, Kerry said the US looks forward to China " playing a positive, constructive, important role."

Wang and Kerry also held "useful" and "detailed" discussions on relaunching the stalled six-party talks on the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria.

However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses t ...

Congressman: Obama plotting ISIS airstrikes a 'big mistake'

Sep 18 2014 7:19pm CDT | Source: WND

Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., is ripping President Obama over reports he will personally oversee the bombing of ISIS targets in Syria and believes the bipartisan vote to arm and train Syrian rebels for the fight is a “big mistake.” The U.S. has been conducting air strikes against ISIS in Iraq for weeks. However, according to the Wall Street Journal, Obama is planning to be directly involved in plo ...

More insane arming of 'moderates'

Sep 18 2014 6:24pm CDT | Source: WND

I’m trying to look on the bright side of what passed for debate over another doomed effort to secure U.S. interests by embarking on the fruitless pursuit, cultivation and empowerment of Islamic “moderates,” this time in Syria. We would get better results sending an expeditionary force after the Loch Ness sea monster. No matter. In deliberations resembling a stampede, we heard: The ISIS is coming, the ISIS is coming! Quick, leave our own borders undefended and save Saudi Arabia! That seeme ...

Kerry: America at 'war against this enemy of Islam'

(Washington FreeBeacon) Secretary of State John Kerry gave a long, meandering reply to Chairman of the House Armed Services Military Personnel Subcommittee Rep. Joe Wilson (R., S.C.) after being asked: “Yes or no? Is America at war?” “Well, you know,” Kerry paused to laugh, “Um, I’m going to answer that, Mr. Chairman, but um…you know…” Kerry waffled a while longer, explaining how the American mission against the Islamic State of Iraq and the ...

HUFFPOST HILL - The House Will Smell Ya Later

Sep 18 2014 4:35pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Turnout was high for today's vote on Scottish independence, and as soon as we know how that'll affect Hillary's chances in Iowa, we'll let you know. Ezekiel Emanuel penned an Atlantic essay titled, "Why I Hope to Die at 75" that had absolutely nothing to do with putting up with an 80-year-old Rahm Emanuel. And the House is avoiding a number of key votes to get back to their districts and tend to the important issues they must ignore. This is HUFFPOST ...

Obama Is Wrong That ISIS Is 'Not Islamic'

Sep 18 2014 4:14pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

"We are fighting an ideology, not a regime." - U.S. Secretary Of State John Kerry "Now let's make two things clear: ISIL is not 'Islamic.' No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL's victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state. It was formerly al-Qaeda's affiliate in Iraq, and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria's civil w ...

Iranian Foreign Minister: America Helped Create ISIS And Is Taking The Wrong Approach ... Again

Sep 18 2014 7:05am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Wednesday that the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq created the extremist group the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL. Further foreign military presence, he said, will only create new terrorists. “If you look at the essence of ISIS, it’s the product of foreign invasion,” Zarif said during a discussion at the Council on Foreign Relations. “Foreign presence in any territory creates a dynamic for demagogues like ISIS to use the ...

Not All Iowa Democrats Are Sold On Hillary Clinton For President

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Not every Iowa Democrat is cheering for Hillary Rodham Clinton to run for president. Some have a gnawing desire for someone else. Whether that yearning stems from real political differences with Clinton or simply interest in a new face, these Iowans aren't shy about saying so. "I want to see what others do, like Elizabeth Warren," says Nancy Bobo, one of President Barack Oba ...
