    MEXICO CITY - The United Nations said in a post on Twitter on Friday it is concerned about the impact Mexico’s migrant operation is having on children and vulnerable people, saying the country had a right to protect its borders but not to use excessive force. Mexican authorities have adopted tougher measures against Central American migrants, detaining 800 who had entered Mexico from Guatemala seeking to reach the border with the United States.

    Two years ago, President Trump has been in the climate-change doghouse ever since he announced the withdrawal of the United States from the Paris Climate Accord. Many people blasted Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate accord. They criticized President Trump’s decision, saying that Trump’s decision to back away from the Paris climate agreement would doom the Earth. Last year things started to change. The German daily newspaper Die Welt has proclaimed U.S. President Donald Trump “the most successful climate protector in the world” after a new global climate report revealed that the U.S. carbon dioxide emissions...

    The Trump administration is barring Iran’s top diplomat from entering the United States this week to address the United Nations Security Council about the U.S. assassination of Iran’s top military official in Baghdad, violating the terms of a 1947 headquarters agreement requiring Washington to permit foreign officials into the country to conduct U.N. business, according to three diplomatic sources. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif requested a visa a “few weeks ago” to enter the United States to attend a Jan. 9 Security Council meeting on the importance of upholding the U.N. Charter, according to a diplomatic source familiar with...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel will travel to Moscow on Saturday to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin amid growing tensions in the Middle East and elsewhere, officials said Monday.

    Amid the turbid ebb and flow of history are inexplicable mysterious deaths, some of them still unresolved. The more intriguing of these deaths, occurring in a variety of countries and historical periods, are well known and become the subject of phantasmagorical speculation and fiction. Jimmy Hoffa, head of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters disappeared on July 30, 1975 without a trace, except in the Martin Scorsese movie The Irishman. The British heirs to the throne, 9 and 12 years old, were sent to and presumably murdered by Richard III in the Tower of London in 1483. The Swedish Prince Minister...

    (AFP) — The United Nations on Friday approved a Russian-led bid that aims to create a new convention on cybercrime, alarming rights groups and Western powers that fear a bid to restrict online freedom. The General Assembly approved the resolution sponsored by Russia and backed by China, which would set up a committee of international experts in 2020. The panel will work to set up “a comprehensive international convention on countering the use of information and communications technologies for criminal purposes,” the resolution said. The United States, European powers and rights groups fear that the language is code for legitimizing...

Ibraheem Samirah introduced a bill that would override local zoning officials to permit multi-family housing in every neighborhood, changing the character of quiet suburbs.Oregon passed a similar bill, following moves by cities such as Minneapolis; Austin, Texas; and Seattle.Proponents say urban lifestyles are better for the environment and that suburbs are bastions of racial segregation. Democrats in Virginia may override local zoning to bring high-density housing, including public housing, to every neighborhood statewide — whether residents want it or not.The measure could quickly transform the suburban lifestyle enjoyed by millions, permitting duplexes to be built on...

    Several Palestinian clans have rejected The Convention of the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women, a move widely seen as a revolt against the PA. Critics of the treaty claim that it goes against Arab and Islamic norms and teachings. “This treaty is unacceptable to Arabs and Muslims,” remarked Palestinian activist Abu Ghassan Shaheen. “It goes against our religion and traditions.” On Saturday, leaders of large Palestinian clans in Hebron called on the PA to withdraw from the treaty. They also called for banning feminist groups from entering Palestinian schools. The clan leaders expressed opposition to the PA’s...

    United Nations peacekeepers fathered hundreds of children during a controversial mission in Haiti, a report has found. Researchers from the University of Birmingham and Ontario University spoke to 2,500 people in Haiti, asking them about their experience of the UN's Stabilisation Mission in Haiti (Minustah) which became one of the longest running peacekeeping mission. More than 10%, 265 people, described stories which featured children fathered by peacekeeping agents. Researchers said a common theme in the stories was transactional sex, with peacekeepers paying young women and leaving after a baby was fathered. Peacekeepers were frequently repatriated after a pregnancy was made...

    A United Nations whistleblower who accused a high-ranking official of sexually assaulting her has been fired over alleged financial and sexual misconduct. She says that it was retaliation for her own complaint of sexual assault. The investigation that would lead to her dismissal was started by her alleged assailant. Martina Brostrom, who first went public with her allegations against an assistant secretary general at the UN in a CNN interview in March 2018, says that she was dismissed from the organization on Friday. She denied charges of misconduct linked to her dismissal. Brostrom told CNN last year that Luiz Loures,...

    MADRID (AP) - United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres warned Thursday that failure to tackle climate change could result in economic disaster that would allow only the “survival of the richest.” Guterres urged officials from almost 200 countries at the annual U.N. climate meeting in Madrid to embrace the economic opportunities that come with cutting greenhouse gases rather than focus on the risks to existing industries dependent on fossil fuels. “For too long, vested interests have peddled the false story that economic growth and tackling climate change are incompatible,” the U.N. chief said. “This is nonsense.” “In fact, failing to tackle...

    The United Nations officially began OCTOBER 24, 1945. Its name was coined by President Franklin Roosevelt. The United Nations' charter was drafted in the Garden Room of San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel. The Charter meeting did not open with prayer. The United Nations was created to prevent future wars, particularly to guarantee there would not be another genocidal holocaust, such as what Jews experienced at the hands of Hitler's National Socialist Workers Party. Unfortunately, there have been nearly 150 wars with over 100 million casualties from the day the 5 in Central Asia, 11 in South Asia, 20 in Southeast Asia,...

    The United Nations may resort to military action against states that defy its mandates on global climate action, according to Ole Wæver, a prominent international relations professor at the University of Copenhagen. In an interview with ABC News in Australia, Professor Wæver cautions that what he sees as “climate inaction” might draw the U.N. into considering other means to ensure its goals are met, even if that leads to global armed conflict. Professor Wæver says more resistance to change could potentially threaten democracy although the U.N. would counter that the end justified the means in much the same way countries...
