“I am sorry for the American decision, but I will continue the dialogue with President Trump to my conviction that in the end he will understand that the interest of the Americans is to stay in the Paris agreement,” McCron said in a statement on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly after his meeting with Bertram.

North Korea’s ambassador leaves the UN General Assembly before Trump’s speech

Published by:

North Korea’s ambassador to the United Nations, Senog Nam, left the UN General Assembly hall before US President Donald Trump delivered his address to the meeting. Trump criticized North Korea and its leader Kim Yong-un during the speech.

ABC News reported that the ambassador was photographed during his departure from the General Assembly before Trump began his speech, and it was noted that the front row of seats reserved for North Korea was absent.

Trump criticized Kim Jong-un, a man of missiles, during his first address to the United Nations, saying that no country on the ground has any interest in seeing this group of criminals armed with nuclear interests and missiles.

“The United States has a lot of strength and patience, but if it has to defend itself, or its allies, it will have no choice but to completely destroy North Korea,” he said.

“The rocket man is on a suicide mission to himself and his regime, and the United States is ready. It has the resolve and ability, but I hope it will not become necessary.”

Authorities reject Rohingya Muslims trapped after violence in Myanmar

Published by:

A large government official in Myanmar said on Tuesday that thousands of Rohingya Muslims are surrounded by hostile Buddhists in the northwest who have enough food and will not be allowed to leave safely from two remote villages as they requested.

The Rohingya villagers said they wanted to leave, but they needed government protection from Buddhist Rakhins who threatened to kill them.

They also said their food had been running out since August 25 when the Rohingyas launched deadly attacks in Rakhine state that led the Myanmar army to launch a violent campaign.

At least 42,000 Rohingyas fled to neighboring Bangladesh to escape what a senior UN official said was typical of ethnic cleansing.

Tin Muang, secretary of the Rakhine state government, said requests from two villages to allow safe passage were rejected because there was enough rice and a nearby police station protected them.

“Their reasons are unacceptable, they should stay in their original place,” he said.

Residents of Ahu Nuk Bin, one of the Rohingya villages, said they hoped to move to relative safety in a camp outside the nearby state capital of Sittwe.

Some 90,000 Rohingyans, displaced during a previous wave of violence in 2012, are living in camps in Rakhine amid extremely poor conditions.

But the state secretary said the move was “impossible” because it would anger the Buddhist Rakhines and fuel sectarian tension.

In a televised address on Tuesday, Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi pledged to punish perpetrators of human rights abuses in Rakhine but did not comment on UN accusations of ethnic cleansing by the United Nations.

Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, said many Muslims had not fled and called on foreign diplomats to discuss why certain areas of Rakhine state “managed to keep the peace.”

“We can arrange for you to visit these areas and ask them yourselves why they did not flee,” she said. “Even while everything around them seemed to be in turmoil.”
