OPCW Report Chemical Weapons Used In Ltamenah By Syria

United states OPCW Report

OPCW Report Chemical Weapons Used By Syrian Air Force

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) issued a report On April 8, 2020, in which disclaimer of chemical weapons were used by the Assad regime. The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons Investigation and Identification Team (IIT) concluded that there are reasonable grounds to believe that the Syrian Arab Air Force dropped siren-containing air bombs in Latamena on 24 and 30 March 2017 and sealed a cylinder On March 25, 2017, the hospital confirmed the rule of use of chemical weapons and disregard for human life. By summer, the Assad regime is responsible for innumerable atrocities, level of war crimes and crimes against humanity. Since the conflict began, more than half a million Syrians have been killed and eleven million people half of Syria's pre war population have been displaced. The regime has arbitrarily detained more than 100,000 people, many of whom tortured and killed. the Assad regime maintained its grip on power Since then, chemical weapons attacks have been used repeatedly every year. The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons-United Nations Joint Investigative Mechanism previously confirmed that the Assad regime had used chemical weapons on several occasions, and now, the investigation and detection team report is that, The Assad regime uses chemical weapons attacks in Syria as part of a deliberate campaign of violence against the Syrian people. United States of America shares the organization to the conclusion of the chemical prohibition and evaluates that the Syrian regime maintains sufficient chemicals particularly sarin and chlorine, and the use of. sarin in its traditional chemical weapons program, chlorine also used in the chemical weapons program for production and deployment, and to develop new chemical weapons. The Syrian Army has a wide variety of chemically capable ammunitions including grenades, aerial bombs, and improvised ammunitions, that can be used at least without warning. The United States condemned the use of chemical weapons reported by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons Investigation and Identification Team and demanded that the Syrian Arab Republic immediately stop all its chemical weapons development programs, stockpiling and use of chemical weapons. thorough investigation and expert work for the organization of Prohibition, which has again demonstrated that Syria efforts are unbiased and professional. The amount of disinfection of any kind from Assad's bosses in Russia and Iran cannot hide the fact that the Assad regime is responsible for many chemical armed attacks. United states urge other nations to join our efforts to promote accountability for the Syrian regime and uphold international norms against the use of chemical weapons. Uncontrolled use of chemical weapons by any state which is unacceptable security threat to all states.

United States International Use Of Outer Space Resources

United States International Outer Space

United States Support For Use Of Outer Space Resources

The Executive Order to encourage international support for the recovery and use of space resources, by the United States  Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act, hereby ordered as follows, Space Policy Directive-1, United States  Manned Space Exploration Program of December 11, 2017 Resume, provides the United States headed by A. Commercial partners to participate in an innovative and sustainable program, will lead man's return to the moon for long-term exploration and use pursued by manned missions to Mars and other destinations. Successful long-term discovery and scientific discovery of the Moon, Mars, and other celestial bodies will require partnerships with commercial entities to recover and use resources, including water and some minerals, in outdoor locations. To use space resources rights, including expansion of commercial recovery rights and utilization of lunar resources , However, has discouraged some commercial entities to participate in this venture. Questions related to the 1979 agreement governing the activities of states on the moon and other celestial bodies the "Moon Agreement" establish a legal framework for nation states, deepening this uncertainty regarding the recovery and use of space resources, especially because the United states have neither signed nor ratified the United States Moon Agreement. In fact, only 18 countries have ratified the Moon Agreement, including only 17 of the 95 member states of the United Nations Committee, members of the United Nations Committee want to Peaceful Use of Outer Space. In addition, the differences between the Moon Agreement and the 1967 Treaty on the principles governing the movements of states in the exploration and use of outer space, including the Moon and other celestial bodies, include the United States and 108 other countries - It also contributes to uncertainty. the right to recover and use outer space resources. Americans must have the right to engage in commercial exploration, retrieval and use of resources in outer space, consistent with applicable law. The outdoor space is a legally and physically unique domain of human activity, and the United States does not see it as a global commons. According to this, it would be United States policy to encourage international support for public and private recovery and use of resources in outer space.

International Mine Awareness Day

United Nations International Mine Awareness Day

United Nations International Mine Awareness and Assistance Day is observed every year on 4 April. The United Nations International Mining and Assistance day provides an opportunity for the world to reflect both progress and landmines and unexplained ordinances. These explosive remains of war still endanger civilians in more than 60 countries. The United States has been working closely with partners around the world to address this serious humanitarian challenge, which involving innocent people, including many children. For more than 20 years, the United States has been part of the international donor community Leads so that, the availability of additional, loosely-protected, or otherwise least-risk weapons and light weapons and weapons Peace and security can be promoted by partnering with nations to alleviate. To address humanitarian threats and unexplained ordinances from landmines in post-conflict countries. The United States is the world's largest financial proponent of the destruction of conventional weapons, since 1993 has raised $ 3.7 billion in more than 100 countries. Invests more. In 2019, the United States funded conventional arms destruction efforts in 58 countries. Our assistance - to the government of the United States and to all our global partners is critical to building a more secure, and prosperous world. We should thanks to strong bipartisan who fund support from Congress, the State Department looks forward to continuing this important work with other donor countries, which are affected by the conflict, and the brave men and women who are involved in securing at-risk weapons and rebels Work in the field and clear landmines and other explosive hazards.

U.S. criticize Russian Cyber Attack On the Georgia

United states condemns, On October 28, 2019, the Russian intelligence agency General Russian Intelligence Directorate (GRU), cyber attack on Georgia by Main Center for Special Technology (GTST), also known as Unit 74455 and Sandworm, launched a widespread disruptive cyber attack against the country of Georgia. This Russian cyber attack incident, which directly affected the Georgian countries population, disrupted the computer operation of several thousand Georgian government website, and as well as privately run websites and also disrupted the broadcasting of at least two major television stations. This Russian cyber attack on Georgia, contradicts Russia's claim that it is a responsible actor in cyberspace and demonstrates a consistent pattern of reckless Russian GRU cyber operations against many countries. The purpose of these operations is to sow division, create insecurity and weaken democratic institutions. America calls on Russia to stop this behavior in Georgia and elsewhere. Every countries have to secure and safe stability of cyberspace, which depends on the responsible behavior of every nations. We, along with the international community, will continue our efforts to maintain an international framework of responsible state behavior in cyberspace. We support Georgia and its people to enhance their cyber security and to combat malicious cyber actors. We also promise, and We will offer additional capacity building and technical support to help Georgia public institutions, to strengthen and improve their ability to protect themselves from such activities.

A team of US government officials from the US State Department, National Science Foundation, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the United States Coast Guard concluded a five-day inspection of foreign supervision research stations equipment installations in Antarctica, Before 11 February 2020. The team inspected three stations Mario Zucchelmi (Italy), Jung Bogo (South Korea), and The Expressive Island (China) by the Coast Guard Polar Star. It was the fifteenth inspection of foreign research stations by the United States in Antarctica, and the first since 2012. The United States praised the assistance provided by professionals at the inspection sites. The United States continues to promote the status of Antarctica as a continent reserved for peace and science in accordance with the provisions of the 1959 Antarctic Treaty. The purpose of the inspection was to verify compliance with the Antarctic Treaty and its environmental protocols, including provisions military prohibition Measures and mining, as well as provisions promoting safe station operations and sound environmental practices. The inspections assert that all of Antarctica's territorial claims are accessible to interested countries and reinforce the importance of compliance with the arms control provisions of the Antarctic Treaty. The United States will present its report on oversight in May 2020 at the next Antarctic Treaty Consultation Meeting in Helsinki, Finland. US Department of State, Bureau of Ocean and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs leads US policy on Antarctica in collaboration with National Science Foundation Is a federal agency that administers the US Antarctic Program (USAP), Which provides logistic support for all US government Research on the Southern Continent and the Southern Ocean and other federal agencies. Through united states Antarctic Program USAP, the United States maintains three-year-round scientific stations over Antarctica and has deployed more personnel in Antarctica than any other country.

U.S. Department of State and FBI Launch First Overseas Joint Terrorism Task Force With Kenya 

The United States Department of State and Federal Investigations has partnered together to assist Kenya in forming the first Overseas Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) to be located outside the United States. The Kenyan and United States led JTTF will be a multi-agency counter-terrorism investigation force in Nairobi, Kenya. The initiative to establish the Kenyan Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF-K) on January 16, 2019, at the Dusitad 2 Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya, after Al-Shabaab Started the terrorist attack. The JTTF required a pressure that could be met through which the FBI's training expertise combined with the State Department Bureau of Counterterrorism (CT Bureau) capacity-building efforts. 42 selected Kenyan investigators to the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia Will receive 12 weeks of intensive counter-notification training. The FBI will implement the curriculum and provide training with assistance from other agencies, as applicable. The FBI and the CT Bureau will collaborate and assess the program. The team will adopt the practices used by the U.S.-based JTTF and trained to handle sensitive counter-terrorism intelligence shared with the Kenyan government. Investigators will be trained and equipped to investigate all terrorism cases of critical importance in Kenya's National Security Council. Upon completion of the course, JTTF-K officials will return to Kenya, where they will be assisted by FBI Special Trainer Mentor. Investigations by JTTF-K will be conducted in accordance with international law enforcement standards and compliance with human rights. Legal authorities will be drawn from the Kenyan Constitution and international treaties. The JTTF Cases will be transferred to Kenya's courts for prosecute, which promote the US goal of enabling foreign partners to successfully counter terrorist threats. JTTF-K to build partner law enforcement capacity of counter-terrorism The State Government's Bureau of Counterterrorism, under the Anti-Terrorism Participation Fund set up by the Congress. Appropriate fund is provided for broader program with Kenya to promote terrorism investigation and prosecution, enhance crisis response, and strengthen border security.

United States Face The Waste Plastic Pollution Waste Management Program

United States Plastic Pollution Waste Management Program

United States Face The Waste Program

Plastic waste cause of marine debris is an emerging challenge, that will require more collaboration between the United states government and scientists and researchers around the world. the issue of plastic waste or marine debris data figures are shocking. the 70% of municipalities in developing countries do not have access to waste management. If we do not work, by 2050 the sea may contain more plastic than fish. In fact, the World Bank estimates That in low-income countries, more than 90% of the population lacks access to appropriate waste management. according to the United Nations Environment Program, 300 million tons of plastics is produced in the world and About eight million tonnes of plastic per year end up in the seas. For a long time, we have seen mismanagement of waste management. But doing it correctly is expensive. In developing countries it can cost 20 to 50% of the municipal budget to manage waste properly. So many communities do not have the capacity or resources to deal with this problem. Local waste solutions in the United States are often not transferable to the circumstances facing a less developed country. This highlights the need for localized innovation, and what responses work in further research, and how they can be transferable. I believe the American scientific community is ready to help, improved public policy to more viable economic models for recycling and materials engineering. When you are ready, the State Department door is to help you take these solutions to the world. Meanwhile, the White House has addressed this issue. Took keen interest in In the last six months it has called on senior inter-leadership to develop an action plan to address the issue, and it is even more urgent as plastics are one of the fastest growing manufacturing industries in the United States, between 2017 And 2018 growing at 6.9%. And when you take into account its supply chain, it represents 1.81 million jobs and $ 590.6 billion in production. The solution to this problem is important for the US economy as well as the environment. This year, as part of our initial efforts, the United States Government will issue a framework to address ocean plastic pollution. Drawing from successful experiences and lessons in the United States, we will address this challenge internationally through a combination of capacity building, market-based approaches and support for innovation. In 2019, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Clean Cities, Blue Ocean's Initiative, to Build Capacity and Commitment for 3R. Its $ 48 Million Global programs, reduced, reused and recycled and improved solid waste management. Countries that are major contributors to sea plastic pollution. This assistance complements USAID's partnership with the private sector to address the problem, such as with a $ 100 million fund from Circle Capital that will catalyze investment in the recycling value chain in Asia.

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

There are several programs to address plastic waste nearby. EPA's WasteWise program encourages local governments, non-profit organizations, businesses, and multinational corporations to achieve sustainability in their waste practices and reduce waste. And, the EPA's Trash-Free Waters Program catalyzes action by bringing stakeholders together to identify and prioritize new low cost, low tech projects, that have a major impact on land based sources of mismanaged waste. The Department of Foreign Affairs contributed $ 800k to APEC for efforts to combat marine debris in APEC areas, and a roadmap on marine debris. the department provided a $ 1 million grant for ocean conservation for a project in Vietnam to address the problem. We are looking to demonstrate our waste management successes as a potential model for the region. We are also partnering together. Twenty-five years ago, Taiwan was named "Garbage Island", through extensive solid waste management policy and public awareness efforts, Taiwan now has recycling rates at more than 50% according to some estimates, We want to replicate this success with others in the region. We are also engaged on the UNEP Ad Hoc Open-ended Expert Group to take stock of existing activities to combat marine waste and to work with other countries to evaluate the effectiveness of these measures, so that potential options are provided. Can go Member countries at the Fifth United Nations Environment Assembly in February 2021. Furthermore, we focus on sanitary landfills, through small-scale and community-based projects in Colombia, Central America, and the Dominican Republic to increase the capacity of solid waste management. State Department presented an awareness campaign and challenge is called 'Face the West'. United states team will work with US Embassy officials abroad to raise awareness, and promote action for plastic pollution immediately and effectively with our counterparts.

5G Wireless Technology Cyber Security Threats To U.S.

5G Wireless Technology Cyber Security Threats

5G Wireless Technology Cyber Security To United States

The State Department efforts of the United states government to explain, what is cyber security strategy. It was earlier announced the National Cyber Strategy in September 2018. The international component referring to conscience is something that the state department is leading to interrupt implementation. Our goal is to establish a set of results there that are fast, expensive and transparent. Can be used in an attempt to respond to countries that do not act in a responsible manner, which act inconsistently with responsible norms of state behavior. We are continuing to implement those, and we are doing so in the new year in 2020, and we are working closely with many other governments to find out ways that we can help those states Work together to implement results against. Actors who are acting maliciously. Another major line of effort that we have run for over a year to educate and discuss with other countries about the importance and transformational nature of 5G wireless technologies. This is the fifth generation of wireless technology. 5G is going to be very different from 4G and previous generation of wireless technology as it is empowering the Internet of things and all kinds of new critical infrastructure. This new critical infrastructure will be the backbone of 5G, the ability for devices to communicate at almost 100 times the speed they do today and with much lower latency. New applications of this type include autonomous vehicles, telemedicine, automated manufacturing, and simply large-scale data that has not previously been performed on communications networks. Having that data will also empower artificial intelligence and other very important services for the government and the public. Therefore it is very important that the technology should be secure. We think you definitely need cybersecurity best practices on these 5G networks, but a possible compromise, software or firmware, that rides on the hardware system - because it can be compromised This means that no test regime has any ability to ensure that these updates contain some sort of millions of lines of code. There is no vulnerability. So you really need a trustworthy relationship between the vendors of this technology and the telecom operator and the government where that technology is to be deployed. Last year we have worked closely with a large number of countries, especially with Europe. Have worked together as they are working on security measures for 5G. We saw a risk assessment to the European Union in early October stating that they needed to be concerned about these trust factors and look at a foreign government's ability to influence the seller that their 5G technology Providing; And in particular, they should also look at the ownership structure of that company and whether that company is subject to coercion, and ultimately, whether that company is subject to it - in a legal environment where there are democratic checks and balances. We have shared it - from the United States' point of view, we have shared our concern that the National Intelligence Law in China with all institutions in China since 2017 Security is required to comply with the mandate of intelligence services - and do so covertly to change, and to appeal to an independent judiciary or law and order rule as an investigation on that power from those intelligence security services There is no way out, so we are pleased to see that the European Union has identified that risk in its risk assessment. We also saw in a statement released on 3 December developing the Council of the European Union that they also understood the importance of looking at non-technical measures and specifically looking at the legal and policy framework where The vendor is headquartered for 5G technology. So in the next new year we will have a European Union security toolbox for 5G Is likely to see; That is, special measures that address the security risks they already assess. We are going to work together with European allies in the new year, along with allies and allies from around the world, which we are already working on 5G security measures.

United States And France Dialogue On Cyber Security And Cyber Policy Issues

United States And France Cyber Security Cyber Policy Issues

United States And France Dialogue On Cyber Policy Issues

The third cyber dialogue of the United States and France was held in Paris, France on January 22, 2020 to confirm our on-going partnership on cyber security and cyber policy issues. Our governments share a commitment to ensuring an open, mutual, reliable and secure cyberspace in which all states behave responsibly. the united states and France discuss efforts to advance sustainability in cyberspace Of Diplomatic progress in multilateral and regional security locations, 5G security concerns, Domestic cyber security issues, And cyber capacity building. United states and France  reaffirmed their support for a framework of responsible state behavior in cyberspace, which is predicated on the applicability of existing law of nations , adherence to non-binding lifetime norms of state behavior, and the implementation of practical trust building measures. The both countries United States and France  delegation also discussed elements of a joint statement on Advancing Responsible State Behavior in Cyberspace, signed by the united states, France and 25 other countries on September 23, 2019, with states working together on a voluntary basis to hold them accountable Commitment to do was involved. They work contrary to this framework. Robert L, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Cyber and International Communications and knowledge Policy. Stryer led the US delegation, which included representatives from the departments of commerce, defense, homeland security, justice, and the state Digital Affairs Ambassador, Henri Verdier,  led a French inter-delegation consisting of representatives from the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, the National Cyber Security Agency, the Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry of the soldiers , and therefore the Ministry of Justice. The United States of Washington, Look forward to hosting the next talk in DC.

United States 5G Technology Cyber Security Issues

The United States 5G Cyber Security Issues

The United States 5G Cyber Security Issues

The United States, State Department that is responsible for our international engagement in matters of cyber security and the digital economy.  the United States' efforts to promote an open, inter-trusted, reliable and secure cyberspace, and to see technology deployed around the world, including 5G technology, which is secure and reliable. As we Now let's see, almost half of the world's population will now connect to the Internet. We look forward to seeing 3 billion people connected after that. But more than that, the amount of deployment that we have seen, and we have clearly received tremendous economic as growth, trillions of dollars are generated in just one year because we are over-capacity; Greater sharing of data, information, Internationally, the ecosystem we have has improved the supply chain from the Internet. Of course, with those great opportunities, there are big challenges. Internally cyberspace is borderless, so action taken by one country in one part of the world can immediately affect others in other parts of the world, so we must cooperate and coordinate in cyberspace. We must use diplomatic means to ensure that we are coordinated with partners, colleagues and other friends to bring them, and then to ensure stability in cyberspace and to promote and prevent successful activities in cyberspace. Talk to competitors and consultants about. Prevent cyber incidents from occurring that might otherwise disrupt view commerce across cyberspace. One of the most significant achievements of this year on the cooperation front was during the high-level week at the United Nations General Assembly in late September. Deputy Secretary Sullivan led a ministerial engagement where we joined 26 other countries in a joint signing to sign our joint views about sustainability in cyberspace, including, first, the norms of responsible state behavior in cyberspace Committed to responsible state behavior, and crimes against these norms of responsible nation behavior. the United Nations has developed approximately 12 criteria for responsible state behavior. And so the golden rule of those norms is that one nation should not attack the other nation's critical infrastructure that is providing services to the public. We saw that action in recent years, including the launch of the Not Petia attack by Russia in 2018 that neutralized critical infrastructure around the world, along with North Korea's WannaCry ransomware attack Important services were interrupted. Publicly also. That is why we have promoted those norms. We have also joined the post-national cyber strategy, which was released in September of 2018. In the final year of implementation, we are leading the interim to implement our National Cyber Preventive Strategy. We know that our key competitors and consultants in cyberspace see cyber as an asymmetric tool to achieve their ends. . They will use cyber to achieve their political, economic, and even military end in cyberspace, so we must be vigilant in our response to those. And it is important that we continue to develop a global consensus around responsible state behavior in cyberspace. My office is also there to lead our efforts to work with our partners and allies and others, so that they can create fifth generation wireless Educate you about the technology or the risks from 5G. it undermines all of our future critical infrastructure and provides tremendous amounts of data that can be used for artificial intelligence and online services. And enable a whole new set of activities. But of course, when we have so much connectivity, its disruption of sensitive personal data and corporate data - could be put at risk in those networks. This is why we think that we should only be the most reliable for vendors that provide 5G equipment - namely, software and hardware - for those networks.
During the past year, we have worked very closely with European countries in particular, as they are one of the first to exit on 5G.

European Union 5G Risk Assessment

We had an EU risk assessment in early October noting a number of concerns that we are sharing with them, including that due to the nature of 5G there will be a new expanded software attack and those countries need to focus on the risk of third country impact on the vendors for those networks. China have indicated countries that have a national intelligence law that requires a company to take necessary actions by intelligence and security services and do so in secret. Such an effect has been highlighted in the risk assessment in the European Union, and this was further revealed on 3 December by the findings of the European Union Council, which also acknowledged that they would have a legal and policy framework governing the company. Need to see if there will be a vendor for 5G. So we have made a lot of progress in this. There will now be a set of security recommendations, a toolbox that they call for in the EU, likely to arrive from the EU this month or the next few months. So next year we are going to focus a lot on helping European countries implement these security measures. Security for 5G is not just about technical cyber measures that may include encryption, network architecture, configuration. It also focuses on what we call non-technical measures. This is the ability to trust a vendor in the network. It is natural for a vendor in the supply chain to place malicious code across several millions of lines of code and it cannot be discovered through any kind of technical means, so you must trust the network. We have seen that Europeans recognize this and we have started recognizing that concern to governments around the world. So we have made a lot of progress in that area. The third thing that I wanted to highlight was that the State Department is the head of many international communication standards bodies that we engage in worldwide.

January 2020 Lunar Eclipse Timing And Astrology Effects

January 2020 Lunar Eclipse Timing And Astrology Effects 

In a while, the lunar cycle allows for a blood moon instead of your normal full moon. When this happens, the feelings intensify, the atricality increases, and there is really no way of knowing what will happen next. An eclipse is a wild card of an astrological event. It can bring sudden and unexpected changes in your life, completely rearrange your path or steer you in the right direction. As the moon takes on the color of the Earth's red shadow, so too the true colors of your life are revealed.
Whatever happens, remember that the January 2020 lunar eclipse will take you to exactly where you are going to be, because fate calls for it. All too often, major life events coincide with an eclipse. This is a time when relationships come together, breaking up as well. This is when you accept your dream opportunity or you finally muster up the courage to quit your job. An eclipse carries such a vast magnitude: lunar nodes (which, in astrology, are known as north and south nodes). During an eclipse, the lunar nodes are illuminated, revealing the person you ask to be, who is no longer meant to be. Because the lunar node is the symbol of energy, an eclipse can be an overall moment for the world. However, it always affects your life in a very personal way. If you are a follower of astrology, then there is a big chance that you have read some very terrible things about the eclipse. All you need to know about an eclipse is that it shines the brightest light on your shadows, revealing a truth you cannot ignore. Once you know the truth, no one retreats. As long as you are ready to embrace change, there is nothing to fear. Lunar eclipse in Cancer on January 10 at 2:21 pm.

How to use However, in order of development, the walls must crash. Sometimes, you need to destroy something so that you have the freedom to create something new. This sentiment has never been applied more than the lunar eclipse of the Cancer zodiac, as it is also creating opposition to the two most male planets in astrology: Saturn and Pluto. Shani is the planet of karma, tradition, discipline and commitment. Pluto is a planet of destruction, passion, power and change. What happens when these two planets join forces with a blood moon? Change in every meaning of the word. In fact, you may feel as if the way you see and see the world - both consciously and subconsciously - is being challenged completely. Let yourself be open to all angles and perspectives. With that being said, you should not let it fill you with images of darkness and sorrow. This lunar eclipse brings the growth of creativity, kindness and spirituality to Neptune as a trine. If you can stop sniffing the roses, counting your blessings, and finding beauty in your situation, your gratitude will go far. Remember that the way you choose to react to your universe will have long lasting implications. Choose to see your situation as an opportunity rather than a tragedy and you will be on the right track.
