    USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter has disclosed England manager Gareth Southgate has left his recent Whatsapp messages unread with their teams meeting in the World Cup. The duo were in touch via Whatsapp on a regular basis but the level of communication has waned ahead of the USA's showdown with the Three Lions in Group B Friday. 'I've been WhatsApp-ing him but I haven't seen the blue checkmark, so I don't know what's going on,' Berhalter said in his pre-match press conference. 'We kind of took a hiatus. We'll pick up our relationship after tomorrow.' England are considered the favorites to top Group B, among the frontrunners to go all the way, and therefore expected to beat the USMNT at 2pm EST Friday.   USMNT's Gregg Berhalter (R) reveals Gareth Southgate (L) has ignored his recent messages Southgate's side thrashed outsiders Iran 6-2 in their opening match in Qatar earlier this week, while the USA were denied all three points by Gareth Bale as they tied 1-1 with Wales.  USA's goalscorer from Monday's game Timothy Weah said being underdog is nothing new...
    National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan met with China's top diplomat Yang Jiechi in Luxembourg on Monday for four and a half hours, and raised concerns about what an official said was Beijing's 'aggressive actions' towards Taiwan. The meeting came amid worsening relations between the world's two biggest economies. At the weekend, China's defense minister said the country was expanding its nuclear arsenal and would fight to prevent Taiwanese independence. A senior Biden administration official characterized the meeting as 'candid, substantive, and productive.' But the official said Sullivan warned China about its stance on Taiwan.  'The national security adviser reiterated our long standing one China policy and our principles, positions and concerns about Beijing's ... aggressive actions across the Taiwan Strait,' they said. The official also said that Sullivan also stressed the need for open communications between the two nuclear powers, and raised concerns that Beijing vetoed a push to impose more United Nations sanctions on North Korea. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan met with China's top diplomat Yang Jiechi in Luxembourg on Monday for four and a half hours, and...
    Ukrainian Ambassador to the United Nations Sergiy Kyslytsya lashed out at his Russian counterpart on Thursday during a Security Council meeting. Because Russia is the temporary president of the council, Ambassador Vasily Nebenzya presided over the meeting. As he has done before since Russia invaded Ukraine last month, Kyslytsya read Nebenzya the riot act in the calmest way imaginable. “Let me begin with a quote,” said Kyslytsya. “‘The operation is developing successfully and in strict accordance with plans that have been previously approved,’ end of quote – said by Putin yesterday, three weeks after the unprovoked and unjustified Russian invasion of Ukraine.” Kyslytsya accused the Russians of deciding to “cosplay” the Nazis by invading a neighboring country without cause. He further stated that Russia’s plan is to kill children: Over these weeks, the international community has wrestled with the question, why? Why has the Russian Federation decided to cosplay the Nazi Third Reich by attacking the peaceful neighboring state and plunging the region into war? What are the reasons and what is the plan? And yesterday, we got the answer:...
    Jake Sullivan spoke with his Russian counterpart Wednesday demanding Moscow stop targeting civilians and warned against using chemical or biological weapons as President Vladimir Putin continues his 20th day of invasion in Ukraine. Biden's national security adviser spoke with Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was delivering an address to Congress just after Russian troops shot and killed 10 Ukrainian civilians waiting in line for bread. 'Mr. Sullivan told General Patrushev that if Russia is serious about diplomacy then Moscow should stop attacking Ukrainian cities and towns,' NSC Spokesperson Emily Horne said in a readout of Sullivan's call with Patrushev. The U.S. and western allies have levied crippling economic sanctions on Russia that has severely depleted worth of the ruble and left the country and its people in economic disarray. These deterrences, however, have not stopped Putin from his full-scale attack. Zelensky played a video Wednesday for Congress showing bombings in Ukraine that reduced infrastructure to rubble and have left thousands of civilians dead. 'Mr. Sullivan also warned General Patrushev about the consequences and implications...

    President Joe Biden and his European Union counterpart Ursula von der Leyen on Friday promised to work together to protect Europe's energy supplies - as well as Ukraine's - while the world waits to see whether Russia moves against its neighbor.  'The United States and the EU are working jointly towards continued, sufficient, and timely supply of natural gas to the EU from diverse sources across the globe to avoid supply shocks, including those that could result from a further Russian invasion of Ukraine,' they said in a joint statement. Russia supplies more than 40 percent of European natural gas, putting the region's leaders on edge as fears of an invasion grow.  Russia has massed about 100,000 troops close to Ukraine's border. Moscow denies that it is planning an invasion and officials have in turn accused the West and Ukraine of aggression. The Biden administration has been working on finding alternative supplies of liquified natural gas in case Russia shuts down supplies - or if the West imposes sanctions.     The Biden administration held calls with CEOs of liquefied natural gas...
    Ukraine's foreign minister rebuked comments Thursday by President Joe Biden about bout a how the U.S. would respond to a 'minor incursion' by Russia – saying it might encourage another form of 'aggression' from Vladimir Putin.  Foreign minister Dmytro Kuleba made the comments to the Wall Street Journal hours after Biden's comments about his country – in a signal of concern about how the president's words might be interpreted in Moscow.  The administration has spent weeks signaling that Russia would get hit by massive sanctions if Putin chose to invade its neighbor again, following the 2014 annexation of Crimea.  'Speaking of minor and full incursions or full invasion, you cannot be half-aggressive. You're either aggressive or you're not aggressive,' said Kuleba. Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba commented publicly in response to President Joe Biden's words about how the U.S. would respond to a 'minor incursion' in his country. 'We should not give Putin the slightest chance to play with quasi-aggression or small incursion operations' 'We should not give Putin the slightest chance to play with quasi-aggression or small incursion...

The discussion was "military focused" and "serious," he added."Both generals display mutual respect for each other, though both have taken the opportunity to quip or joke on occasion."The meeting took place at the Finnish government's Koningstedt residence in Vantaa, 25 miles north of the Finnish capital, amid a prolonged period of elevated tensions between Washington and Moscow.Read MorePentagon, White House mobilize defense of Milley amid criticism over China callsDespite the ongoing and occasionally contentious disagreements between the US and Russia on Ukraine, cyberattacks, and the Arctic, the purpose of the meeting was to improve dialogue and deconfliction between the...
    General Mark Milley on Friday defended his calls to his Chinese counterpart during the final months of Donald Trump's presidency as 'perfectly within the duties and responsibilities' of his job as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Milley made his first public comments on revelations he called Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People's Liberation Army to reassure him the U.S. was not going to suddenly attack China.  The general was blasted by the former president and several conservatives for his conversations and accused of breaking the chain of command. Milley told reporters traveling with him the calls are 'routine' and were done 'to reassure both allies and adversaries in this case in order to ensure strategic stability.' He said he would discuss the matter in greater detail later, when he testifies before Congress later in September. Milley is traveling to Athens to participate in a NATO conference.  'I think it's best that I reserve my comments on the record until I do that in front of the lawmakers who have the lawful responsibility to oversee the U.S. military,' Milley said....
    Former President Trump on Tuesday said the United States' top military officer was guilty of treason if he went behind his back and promised to warn China of an impending attack. He was responding to bombshell revelations in a new book claiming that Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, twice called his Chinese counterpart last year over concerns that then President Trump was ready to go to war.   'If it is actually true - which is hard to believe that he would have called China, and done these things and was willing to advise them of an attack or in advance of an attack - that's treason,' said Trump during an interview with Sean Spicer on Newsmax TV. Excerpts from 'Peril,' by journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, were published on Tuesday suggesting Milley feared Trump would launch a war in the wake of November's election defeat to Joe Biden. Milley sought to assure Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People's Liberation Army that the U.S. was not about to launch strikes in the calls.  In one call...
    By Valerie Volcovici WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry will meet with his Chinese counterpart Xie Zhenhua, White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said on Monday. Sullivan, speaking in an interview on MSNBC, did not give an exact date for the U.S.-China meeting on climate issues. But the two will be speaking on Tuesday at a ministerial meeting on climate action hosted by the EU, Canada and China. The meeting will come after top Chinese and U.S. diplomats held their first meeting of Joe Biden’s presidency last Thursday and Friday in Alaska and publicly rebuked each other’s policies. The Chinese delegation said after the meeting that the two sides were “committed to enhancing communication and cooperation in the field of climate change,” Xinhua news agency said on Saturday, and would set up a joint working group on climate change. A State Department official said in a e-mailed statement to Reuters on Sunday that while the world's two biggest greenhouse emitters will engage on climate change, they "did not form a formal working group." The...
    In the call, which comes three weeks after coming to power, Biden expressed “deep concerns” about Beijing’s “unfair and coercive” economic practices, the crackdown in Hong Kong and “human rights violations” in Xinjiang, according to a White House report. The two leaders also discussed the Covid-19 pandemic and the “common challenges” of global health security and climate change. According to experts, more than a million Uyghurs are or have been detained in political re-education camps in Xinjiang. Beijing rejects the term “camps” and says that they are vocational training centers, intended to provide employment to the population and therefore to distance them from religious extremism. The new president is eagerly awaited on the sensitive issue of US-Chinese relations as the subjects of tension between the two leading world powers are numerous. If he has clearly displayed his desire to break with Donald Trump’s foreign policy, this is one of the rare cases where he could, in essence, advocate a certain continuity with his predecessor.

    Donald Trump’s first term in the White House has been punctuated by unsuccessful attempts at rapprochement with Russia. And now that it is coming to an end, this will comes up against the news again and again. A complex case has come to remind how much normalization proves impossible for the President of the United States, who nevertheless had once again proposed to invite to the next G7 summit his counterpart Vladimir Putin, who had been excluded in 2014 of what was then the G8 for having annexed Crimea. According to the New York Times, American intelligence has acquired the conviction that Moscow had distributed bonuses to insurgents for killing American soldiers in Afghanistan. Has the Republican President been informed, as claimed by several media? And if so, why didn’t he fight back? And if not, why did those around him judge that the commander-in-chief should not be made aware of an event so explosive? Questions and speculations have been flowing since this weekend, reinforced by a confused communication from the White House. After ensuring that the secret services...
    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday met with his Chinese counterpart in Hawaii as relations between the two nations dipped to its lowest level in a decade over everything from Beijing's handling of the coronavirus pandemic to Hong Kong's autonomy. Pompeo and Yang Jiechi's meeting informally began Tuesday over dinner and resumed Wednesday at the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Honolulu. The meeting took place as new revelations about President Trump and China dominated domestic headlines after details from a new book by John Bolton, Trump's former national security adviser, emerged in news reports. BOLTON, IN BOOK, ACCUSES TRUMP OF 'OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE AS A WAY OF LIFE,' ASKING CHINA'S XI FOR 2020 HELP Bolton claimed in his book that Trump reached out to China to help him win reelection in 2020 by ending a trade war and encouraged President Xi Jinping to build concentration camps for Uighur Muslims in western China, according to an excerpt published in The Wall Street Journal.
