    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s foreign minister told a visiting South Korean delegation Monday that the release of its vessel and crew seized by Iranian forces is a matter for the courts and out of the government’s hands, state media reported. The development comes amid an escalating financial dispute between the countries. The official IRNA news agency quoted Mohammad Javad Zarif as saying in a meeting with South Korea’s first vice foreign minister that the Iranian government cannot intervene in the case, which is “under review in the legal and judicial framework,” he said. The South Korean-flagged tanker seizure by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard on Jan. 5 in the crucial Strait of Hormuz came as Iranian officials have been pressing South Korea to release some $7 billion in assets tied up in the country’s banks due to American sanctions. Iran was apparently seeking to increase its leverage over Seoul ahead of South Korea’s pre-scheduled regional trip, which included a stop in Qatar. Zarif on Monday reiterated the government’s claim that the vessel was confiscated by Iran over “environmental pollution.” But he...

His continued whining that the election was rigged and he didn’t lose and all of that,” said Democratic Rep.

    MANAMA: An Israeli delegation with the US Treasury Secretary arrived in Bahrain on Sunday to formalize new ties and expand Gulf cooperation that Washington has promoted as an anti-Iranian palace and a potential economic bonus. Bahrain, which last month agreed with the United Arab Emirates to normalize relations with Israel, is shocking the Palestinians who demanded the state before such a regional compromise. The turning point, overseen by US President Donald Trump, is a foreign policy before he is re-elected next month. As for the US allies, this is an opportunity to close the gap on Iran more openly. He was accompanied by US Treasury Secretary Steve Munuchin on the Israeli delegation that flew on an El Al Israel Airlines charter flight from Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has publicly told his cabinet that the delegates will work on cooperation agreements and the “establishment of a peace agreement.” At a White House ceremony on September 15, Israel and Bahrain signed a “Declaration of Peace, Cooperation and Creative Diplomatic and Friendly Relations”, a lack of...
    A joint American-Israeli delegation landed in Bahrain Sunday, where officials will be signing a number of bilateral agreements following an announcement last month to normalize relations. U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's national security adviser, Meir Ben-Shabbat, led the delegation that flew out of Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion airport on Sunday morning. Ben-Shabbat said ahead of departure the visit will ‘translate plans to actions and concrete agreements’ with the signing of a range of deals involving finance, investment, trade, tourism, communications, technology and agriculture. Another Israeli official said the visit represents the official establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries with the sides expected to sign a joint statement establishing full diplomatic relations.    The delegation was received by Bahraini Foreign Minister Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani, who called for a 'genuine and lasting peace, one that safeguards the rights of the Middle East’s peoples.' Mnuchin, the head of the American delegation, which included U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, said he hoped that the United States would soon be able to announce more agreements...
    Joe Biden's recollection that he was once "arrested" in apartheid South Africa, along with black congressional colleagues, was one of many statements he had to walk back during the Democratic primaries. But the eventual acknowledgment by Biden, now the Democratic presidential nominee, that the 1976 incident didn't happen as described contained a new set of errors. Details of the 1976 trip reviewed by the Washington Examiner show that the then-34-year-old Delaware senator was never in the South African city of Johannesburg, where the fictional arrest episode was said to take place. U.S. foreign policy toward South Africa was for years a high-profile issue for Biden, the former two-term vice president and 36-year Delaware senator. In 1986, as a senior member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee preparing for what would be the first of three presidential bids, Biden grilled Reagan administration officials over U.S. relations with South Africa's apartheid regime. Details of Biden's decade-earlier personal interactions became fodder for debate during the heat of the Democratic primary season this year. In February, he claimed to have...
    KABUL – Ten people were killed and more than a dozen injured in the Afghan capital on Wednesday in a bomb blast in an attack on the country’s first vice president, the Interior Ministry said. Several of the injured were the president’s bodyguards. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, and the Taliban were quick to deny being behind the incident. The country’s first vice president, Amrullah Saleh, suffered minor burns. Saleh, who is also the former head of Afghan intelligence, said in his first television appearance just after the attack that he was fine and suffered only slight burns. In the images he was wearing a bandage on one hand. “I and my little son, who was also with me, are fine,” Saleh said in his speech. The attacks in Afghanistan left more than 10 dead. “I have minor burns on my face and one hand from the shock wave from the explosion. I don’t have exact details right now, but I apologize to those who suffered personal losses and those...

Bishop Leon Benjamin, a congressional candidate in Virginia’s fourth district, was the main speaker and crowd-pleaser of the event, offering a plethora of proclamations about the upcoming election and the efforts of delegation.  “This is our greatest hour,” Benjamin announced to the crowd. “Every delegate, every alternate delegate, you are wonderful. This is a sure win on November 3rd, a landslide!” The overall feelings  and sentiment of guests on the Republican convention and the job Trump has done during his term so far were as one would expect: extremely positive. “The convention has been phenomenal so far because the little people [the convention] has focused on makes the point that people across America support President Trump,” said Michael Thielen, executive director of the Republican National Lawyers Association and state-wide alternate Trump delegate.
