Military force cannot resolve tension over North Korea, China said on Thursday, while an influential Chinese newspaper urged the North to halt its nuclear program in exchange for Chinese protection. With a U.S. aircraft carrier group steaming to the area and tension rising, South Korea said it believed the United States would consult it before any pre-emptive strike against the North. Fears have been growing that the reclusive North could soon conduct its sixth nuclear test or more missile launches in defiance of U.N. sanctions and stark warnings from the United States that a policy of patience was over. China, North Korea's sole major ally and benefactor, which nevertheless opposes its weapons program, has called for talks leading to a peaceful resolution and the denuclearization of the peninsula.

Philippines' President Rodrigo Duterte has canceled a planned visit to an island the Philippines claims in the disputed South China Sea, after Beijing warned him against the visit. The brash Philippine leader last week announced his plan to raise the Philippine flag in the island of Thitu and fortify it with barracks, setting off alarm bells. "Because of our friendship with China and because we value your friendship I will not go there to raise the Philippine flag," Duterte said in a speech before the Filipino community in Riyadh late Wednesday.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson flew into Moscow Tuesday to confront the Kremlin over its support for Bashar al-Assad as the US questioned if Russia was complicit in an alleged chemical weapons attack. Tillerson is the first senior US official to visit Moscow since President Donald Trump took office promising to seek closer anti-terrorist cooperation with Russia, but as he arrived relations were already tense. Last week, the US fired a volley of cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase in response to an alleged regime attack using a suspected nerve agent that killed at least 87 civilians in a rebel-held town, many of them children.

African migrants trying to reach Europe are being sold into slavery in Libya, including for sex, for as little as $200, international monitors said Tuesday, citing testimony from victims. Having paid human traffickers in the hope of finding a better life many instead were held hostage and their families extorted for ransom. The International Organization for Migration said "slave market conditions" and detention were increasingly common as criminal gangs sought to cash in. More»

Far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen said Tuesday that if elected she would immediately suspend France's membership of Europe's Schengen border-free zone and deport foreigners on a watchlist of Islamist radicals. Le Pen, who caused outrage at the weekend with controversial remarks about the deportation of Jews from wartime France, also said she would move quickly to hold a referendum on her proposals for a French-first policy on jobs and social housing. The anti-globalisation, anti-EU National Front (FN) leader is neck-and-neck with centrist Emmanuel Macron in polls for the first round of the election on April 23, with three polls Tuesday putting them on 23-24 percent each. Conservative Francois Fillon and surging leftist radical Jean-Luc Melenchon are locked in a close contest for third with between 17 and 19 percent each. The two top vote-getters go through to a runoff on May 7. More»

The Federal Reserve's plans to raise U.S. interest rates gradually are aimed at sustaining full employment and nearly two percent-inflation without letting the economy overheat, Fed Chair Janet Yellen said on Monday. "I think we have a healthy economy now," Yellen said at an event at the University of Michigan's Ford School of Public Policy in Ann Arbor. Unemployment, at 4.5 percent, is now a little bit below the jobless rate that most Fed officials think signals full employment, and inflation is reasonably close to the Fed's two percent-goal, she said.

South Korea's acting president warned on Tuesday of greater provocations by North Korea as tension on the Korean peninsula rises over concern the North may conduct a test of its military hardware in coming days. A U.S. Navy strike group led by a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier is route to the western Pacific with talk of military action by the United States gaining traction following its strikes last week against Syria. South Korean acting President Hwang Kyo-ahn ordered the military to intensify monitoring of the North's activities and to ensure close communication with the ally the United States. "It is possible the North may wage greater provocations such as a nuclear test timed with various anniversaries including the Supreme People's Assembly," said Hwang, acting leader since former President Park Geun-hye was removed over a graft scandal.

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny said on Tuesday he would keep organising large anti-Kremlin demonstrations despite being jailed for 15 days after orchestrating the biggest protests against the authorities in years. Navalny, who wants to run against Vladimir Putin for president next year, was speaking a day after being freed from jail and making his first public comments about the March 26 protests which resulted in over 1,000 arrests. "I of course assess the March 26 action to be very successful," said Navalny, addressing his supporters in an online broadcast. "It was the first simultaneous action in towns since the 1990s. Despite the fact that the authorities tried to frighten everyone ... tens of thousands took to the streets. We need to continue," Navalny further noted. More»

The Philippine Court of Appeals has upheld a guilty verdict on a U.S. Marine for killing a transgender woman nearly three years ago, a case that stirred debate over the U.S. military presence in its former colony. A lower court had found Lance Corporal Joseph Scott Pemberton guilty of killing Jennifer Laude in a hotel in Olongapo, outside a former U.S. navy base northwest of the capital, in 2014. He was jailed for between six and tena years on a Philippine military base. More»

The U.S. Navy said Saturday it had sent a carrier-led strike group to the Korean peninsula in a show of force against North Korea's reckless" nuclear weapons program. The move will raise tensions in the region and comes hard on the heels of a U.S. missile strike on Syria that was widely interpreted as putting Pyongyang on warning over its refusal to abandon its nuclear ambitions. North Korea denounced Thursday's strike as an act of intolerable aggression and one that justified "a million times over" the North's push toward a credible nuclear deterrent. More»
