Welcome to FBNC’s July 12 Internationanl news Here are today’s outstanding news Taliban attack on Afghanistan’s Taluqan city repulsed, over two dozen dead India pulls officials from Afghanistan’s Kandahar as Taliban widens control Australia says last troops withdrawn from Afghanistan China looks for ways to help fill void in Afghanistan without overcommitting itself China looks for ways to help fill void in Afghanistan without overcommitting itself Indonesian raid kills militants with suspected links to Isis and attacks on Christians Iran irked by US, European support for opposition group U.S. “concerned” by flow of migrants from Belarus to Lithuania A Taliban attack on Taluqan city, capital of Afghanistan’s northern Takhar province, has been repulsed, an official said Sunday. The militants fled after suffering casualties and leaving over two dozen bodies, provincial government spokesman Hamid Mubariz said. The armed insurgents launched multi-pronged offensives on Taluqan city early Sunday morning, but the security forces retaliated with heavy gunfire, forcing the insurgents to flee. Taliban attacks on security outposts in Gazni city were repelled by Afghan security forces on Sunday, TOLOnews reported, citing a police official. The Taliban attacked security outposts in PD3, PD6, PD1 and PD5 in the early hours ofnSunday morning, the provincial police statement said, adding “the Taliban faced a response from the joint security forces, and their attacks were pushed back.” India said on Sunday it had temporarily brought back officials from its consulate innKandahar, a major city in southern Afghanistan, as Taliban fighters continue to gainncontrol amid the withdrawal of international forces. Arindam Bagchi, chief spokesperson at India’s foreign ministry,said in a statement. “Due to the intense fighting near Kandahar city, India-based personnel have been brought back for the time being,” “India is closely monitoring the evolving security situation in Afghanistan,” Bagchi said, adding that India’s consulate in Kandahar was being run by local staff temporarily. Taliban officials said on Friday the Sunni Muslim insurgent group had taken control of 85% of Afghanistan’s territory, as the United States and others withdraw the bulk of their troops after 20 years of fighting. India’s foreign minister on Friday called for a reduction of violence, saying the situation innthe war-torn nation has a direct bearing on regional security. Australia has completely pulled out its troops during “recent weeks”, ending itsninvolvement in Afghanistan’s two-decades-long war, the country’s defence minister said Australia’s defence minister on Sunday confirmed the end of his country’s involvement in the 20-year Afghanistan war, saying the troops withdrawal had taken place “in recent weeks”. Australia had deployed 39,000 troops over the past 20 years as part of US and NATO-led operations against the Taliban and terrorist groups in Afghanistan, a mission that cost the country billions of dollars and left 41 Australian soldiers dead. And while the country has not had a significant troop presence in Afghanistan since withdrawing combat personnel in late 2013, the war has taken a toll and fuelled controversy at home. Veterans groups have pressured the government into launching a formal inquiry into the high number of suicides among Afghan veterans and other ex-servicemen and women. Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen told the South China Morning Post the group sawnChina as a friend to Afghanistan and hoped to talk to Beijing about investing in reconstruction work. Suhail also said the Taliban would prevent other terrorist groups operating there,nincluding any from China. China’s projects in Afghanistan and West Africa face growing security threats and requiren. increased risk assessment and precautions following US and French military withdrawals, observers say France is ending its largest overseas military mission, involving more than 5,000nsoldiers, after battling terrorists in West Africa since 2013 potentially endangering Chinese investment projects, border security and stability in the neighbouring Chinese region of Xinjiang. Observers have also warned of rising security risks to Chinese investments in West Africa with the planned withdrawal of France’s anti-terrorism operation in the region. The United States is set to pull out all of its troops from Afghanistan by the end of August after nearly two decades of deployment. US Central Command announced on Tuesday that the withdrawal process was more than 90 per cent complete. At the same time, the Taliban has claimed control over 120 new districts in the past two months, including Wakhan district, bordering China. On Friday, it claimed it controlled 85nper cent of Afghanistan after seizing key border crossings with Iran and Turkmenistan. After advising Chinese citizens to leave the country as soon as possible, China evacuated 210 nationals from Afghanistan via a charter flight on Wednesday. Zhang Jiadong, an international relations professor at Fudan University in Shanghai, said that “faced with the possible government collapse in Afghanistan, China’s most important task is protecting its nationals, the best way being to withdraw them. Also, it is necessary to maintain communication with all parties in Afghanistan, including the Taliban, to closely monitor their dynamics,” Zhang said. “We should also keep contact with Afghanistan’snneighbours.” There are concerns that Afghanistan could once again become the biggest source of risks to China’s far west. Zhang said the Taliban rise to power would significantly increase the risknof terrorism and religious extremism. “Drug smuggling is [also] likely to be resurgent with the US leaving, because without money from the US, the Taliban and other groups need to find other ways to make a living,” “Faced with the potential security risk from Afghanistan, China should have all-roundnengagement with Afghanistan, which means contacting various entities and armed groups, as long as they comply with international law and have certain influence, because we won’t be able to find a single entity that can represent Afghanistan in the near future.” Zhang’s view was echoed by Gu Dingguo, a research fellow of East China NormalnUniversity specialising in studies of China’s neighbours. Gu said the US withdrawal could cause a “butterfly effect” and encourage terroristsnworldwide to step up activities, such as in West Africa. “China and Russia can step up cooperation in peacekeeping forces in the region,” Gu said. “China can also invite Russia to take part in its investment projects. “Russia has a large military presence in the Middle East, which has a deterrent effect onnWest Africa. China and Russia already had good cooperation on that, and China gavenRussia economic assistance. Now they can deepen such cooperation.” China also offered to host peace talks between the parties in Afghanistan, while seeking to step up cooperation with Central Asian nations to deal with a possible spillover of Afghan security risks and any threats to China’s Belt and Road Initiative projects. Two of theninitiative’s economic corridors comprising special economic zones and energy and transport infrastructure – pass through Central Asia. Security forces have seized rocket launchers and thousands of rounds of ammunition in their raids against Caracas gangs. Fighting between security forces and armed gangs in Caracas has left 26 people dead, the Venezuelan government said on Saturday. The official death toll comes after days of heavy gunfire in the capital that forced residents to flee. The death toll includes 22 suspected gang members and four officers, Interior MinisternCarmen Melendez said on Saturday during a broadcast on state television. She said 10 officers were injured and that 28 civilians not believed to be gang members were wounded — 18 of whom were bystanders. Melendez acknowledged that civilians were killed as well, but she did not provide a figure or further details on their deaths. Human rights activists reported four people were killed by stray bullets in the violence this week. Indonesian security forces on Sunday killed two suspected militants with ties to IslamicnState who were believed to be connected to the killing of Christian farmers on Sulawesinisland, The two men, identified as Rukli and Ahmad Gazali, were fatally shot during a predawnnraid by a five-man team of military and police in Central Sulawesi province’s mountainous Parigi Moutong district, said Major General Richard Tampubolon, who heads the jointnoperation. Security operations in Central Sulawesi have intensified in recent months to try to capture members of the East Indonesia Mujahideen network, particularly targeting Ali Kalora, the group’s leader and Indonesia’s most wanted militant. The network pledged allegiance to Islamic State in 2014 He said security forces were still searching for the seven remaining members of group who are still at large, including Kalora. Former U.S. diplomat Mike Pompeo claimed that the Iranian government was “at its mostn. precarious state” since the 1979 Islamic Revolution and called for sustained pressure on Tehran The NRCI is the political wing of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, which is considered a terror organization by Iran and was once designated as such by the United States until it was delisted in 2012 The EU removed the group from its terrorism list in 2009 Hundreds of people rallied Saturday in front of Berlin’s iconic Brandenburg Gate, whilenspeakers including former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Democratic strategist Donna Brazile and numerous serving U.S. senators from across the aisle lauded the NRCI and its aims. The former top U.S. diplomat also compared Iran’s newly elected president, Ebrahim Raisi, to a “mass murderer” for his role in the execution of thousands of Iranian political prisoners in 1988 “The United States should take the lead to hold him accountable for the crimes againstnhumanity that he committed,” said Pompeo, adding that the U.S. government should tellnallies in Europe and Asia if they deal with Raisi, Iran slammed Western politicians taking part in the event, with Foreign Ministrynspokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh accusing them of “(selling) themselves cheap for a Europe- hosted circus arranged by a once Saddam-backed terrorist cult with Iranian blood on its hands.” The United States is concerned about the flow of Middle Eastern and African migrants from Belarus into Lithuania, a U.S. diplomat said. Lithuania began building a 550-km (320-mile) razor wire barrier on its border withnBelarus on Friday after accusing Belarusian authorities of flying in migrants from abroad to send illegally into the European Union. “We are watching it very closely and with concern”, said U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent in an interview with Lithuanian news website 15min.lt, He said the “pressure tactic” is comparable to migrant flows from Russia to Finland andnNorway in 2015 “That’s something that we call on Belarusian authorities to stop – intentionally pushing migrants from other countries to the Lithuanian border”, said Kent.
