Philippine government troops have killed a senior member of the Abu Sayyaf rebel group instrumental in a spree of bombings and kidnappings in the country's south, the military said on Saturday. Alhabsy Misaya was killed in a shootout with marines on Friday in the province of Sulu, a stronghold of the Abu Sayyaf, a group linked to Islamic State and known for its kidnappings and beheading captives when ransom demands are not met. The military said Misaya had been involved in violent activities for more than 15 years and was considered to be one of the most notorious kidnappers in the southern Philippines. Abu Sayyaf is a major concern for the Philippines and is showing no letup in its kidnappings, most of which target sailors from Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam. It has also taken Westerners captive, and last year decapitated two Canadians and in February, an elderly German. The government says it is making inroads in crushing the rebels in a bid to arrest the piracy and prevent Islamic State (IS) from taking root in the restive region close to Indonesia and Malaysia.

Despite indications earlier Wednesday to the contrary, U.S. President Donald Trump agreed not to terminate the NAFTA treaty "at this time" in afternoon phone calls with the leaders of Mexico and Canada, the White House stated. Here's the readout from the White House: Late this afternoon, President Donald J. Trump spoke with both President Peña Nieto of Mexico and Prime Minister Trudeau of Canada. Both conversations were pleasant and productive. President Trump agreed not to terminate NAFTA at this time and the leaders agreed to proceed swiftly, according to their required internal procedures, to enable the renegotiation of the NAFTA deal to the benefit of all three countries. President Trump said, "it is my privilege to bring NAFTA up to date through renegotiation. It is an honor to deal with both President Peña Nieto and Prime Minister Trudeau, and I believe that the end result will make all three countries stronger and better." Both the Canadian dollar and the Mexican peso rose against the U.S. dollar after the release of the White House statement. The Trump administration had been mulling an executive order on withdrawing from the North American Free Trade Agreement, the three-nation deal Trump repeatedly slammed on the campaign trail, Politico reported earlier, citing two White House officials. A draft version of the order had existed, Politico and NBC News reported. Politico reported that the order was in the "final stages of review" and could have been "unveiled late this week or early next week." Trump previously said he wanted to renegotiate NAFTA, arguing that the agreement has punished American workers and companies. The order, though, could be used as a negotiating tactic with Mexico and Canada, the other NAFTA parties. More»

Canada will respond firmly to Donald Trump, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Tuesday after the United States announced it would level trade sanctions against its softwood and dairy sectors. "I'm polite, but I'm also very firm in defending Canada's interests," Trudeau said in an interview with broadcaster CTV. After slapping new tariffs on Canadian softwood lumber Monday, the US president threatened to retaliate against its northern neighbor over new pricing policies that effectively cut many U.S. dairy farmers out of the Canadian market."We are going to engage respectfully but firmly with the U.S. to demonstrate... the scope of integration of our economies," Trudeau said in response.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said in an interview with Reuters that he can and will return to the ruling AK Party once the High Electoral Board (YSK) announces official results of a referendum that will give him sweeping powers. Erdogan told Reuters that a party congress would decide whether he would resume leadership of the party, adding that the timing of the congress would be decided by party officials. He said early elections following a narrow victory in last Sunday's referendum were not on Turkey's agenda and added that neither the country's constitutional court nor the European Court of Human Rights had the authority to review the outcome of the vote. Erdogan also said that he had not discussed a potential cabinet reshuffle with Prime Minister Binali Yildirim. He said developments showed Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) would surpass $22.5 billion, which Turkey had seen during his time as prime minister, in 2017. More»

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cancelled talks on Tuesday with German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel after the visiting diplomat declined to call off meetings with rights groups critical of Israel's government, an official said. The Israeli official, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed the meeting was cancelled after Gabriel decided to go ahead with talks with Israeli rights groups Breaking The Silence and B'Tselem. Breaking The Silence seeks to document alleged Israeli military abuses in the Palestinian territories, while B'Tselem has worked on a range of issues and has strongly opposed Israeli settlement building.

Barack Obama, making his first major appearance since leaving the White House, made no mention on Monday of his successor, Donald Trump, but urged young people to get more involved in their communities at a time of stark political divides. “What’s been going on since I’ve been gone?” joked the former Democratic president as he moderated an event at the University of Chicago in the city where he began his political career and which will be the site of his presidential library. Obama, who once taught constitutional law at the school, recalled starting out as a young community organizer in the city and told a panel of six current and former students that he decided to focus his post-presidency on encouraging young people to engage with their communities.

President Donald Trump has rattled Washington, startled world leaders with his unpredictability and won their praise for a surprise strike on Syria. And that is all in the first 100 days, He's endured the steady drip of investigations and seemingly endless public personnel drama. Trump campaigned on a promise of instant disruption, but indirectly acknowledged that change doesn't come quickly to Washington. He showed signs that he feels the weight of the office, discussing the "heart" required to do the job. Although he retains his signature bravado and a salesman's confidence in his upward trajectory, he displays an awareness that many of his own expectations for his first 100 days in office have not been met. Trump suggested in an interview that the 100 day measurement is not very meaningful. More»

North Korea conducted a big live-fire exercise on Tuesday to mark the foundation of its military, media reported, as a U.S. submarine docked in South Korea in a show of force amid growing concern over Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programmes. The port call by the USS Michigan came as a U.S. aircraft carrier strike group steamed towardsKorean waters and as the top envoys for North Korea policy from South Korea, Japan, and the United States met in Tokyo. Fears have risen in recent weeks that North Korea could conduct another nuclear test or long-range missile launch in defiance of U.N. sanctions, perhaps on the Tuesday anniversary of the founding of its military. South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported that the North appeared to have deployed a large number of long-range artillery units in the region of Wonsan on its east coast on Tuesday, for a live-fire drill.

U.S. President Donald Trump indicated an openness on Monday to delaying his push to secure funds for his promised border wall with Mexico, potentially eliminating a sticking point as lawmakers worked to avoid a looming shutdown of the federal government. Trump, in a private meeting with conservative media outlets, said he may wait until Republicans begin drafting the budget blueprint for the fiscal year that starts on October 1 to seek government funds for building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, the White House confirmed. Trump, whose approval ratings have slid since he took office, is facing a Friday deadline for Congress to pass a spending bill funding the government through September or risk marking his 100th day in office on Saturday with a government shutdown. "Now the bipartisan and bicameral negotiators can continue working on the outstanding issues," Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement on Monday night. More»
