Canada’s decision on whether to allow Huawei Technologies Co. access to its next-generation wireless network won’t be a political one, Justin Trudeau said.

The prime minister’s comments, made Wednesday at a year-end news conference in Ottawa, come amid heightened tensions with Beijing. Three Canadians have been detained in China since the arrest of a top Huawei executive in Vancouver on a U.S. extradition request earlier this month.

The firm is racing to develop 5G technology, the fifth-generation mobile network that could be 100 times faster than existing standards. Australia and New Zealand have effectively banned Huawei from their grids, while the U.K and Germany are being pressed to follow suit over concerns the gear could be exploited by China’s spy agencies.

“There are millions of dollars, billions of dollars at stake in technology and in communications infrastructure, there is also the extraordinary imperative that Canadians and people around the world expect to be kept safe and free from interference and cyber attacks,” Trudeau said.

“It shouldn’t at all be a political decision made on how we engage, but a decision made by experts and a decision based on recommendations by our intelligence and security agencies,” he said.

Espionage concerns

U.S. lawmakers wrote to Trudeau in October urging him to block Huawei from 5G in Canada, and American officials ramped up pressure on Germany over the same issue this week. The company rejects espionage concerns outright, saying that excluding it from the new networks will snarl the advent of future wireless technologies worldwide.

Trudeau also sought to keep politics out of the cases of three Canadians captured this month by Chinese authorities. While the most recent detainee has yet to be identified, the prime minister said the case appears unrelated to the first two, who are facing national security investigations.

Michael Kovrig, a diplomat on leave from his post in Hong Kong, and Michael Spavor, entrepreneur who helped organize tourist trips to North Korea, were seized by Chinese state security officers nine days after Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou was taken into custody on Canada’s Pacific coast. She is now out on bail, pending an extradition hearing.

“We are looking into the details on this most recent one that doesn’t seem to fit the pattern set by the previous two,” Trudeau said. He added that “political posturing or political statements aren’t necessarily going to contribute” to their successful resolution.

South Korea wants to hold smaller joint military drills with the United States next year, the defense ministry said Thursday, scaling back larger exercises as part of an effort to boost nuclear diplomacy with North Korea.

The allies have suspended a number of combined military exercises this year as tensions on the Korean Peninsula eased and Washington began talks to dismantle Pyongyang’s nuclear program.

The North has denounced the annual drills, which in the past involved hundreds of thousands of troops, warships and aircraft, as a “rehearsal for war.”

​Computer-simulated drills

With nuclear talks under way, Seoul and Washington are discussing scaling back their regular field exercises, including Foal Eagle in early 2019, and hold two computer-simulated command post drills next year, the defense ministry said.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said last month the Foal Eagle exercise would be “reorganized a bit to keep it at a level that will not be harmful to diplomacy” with North Korea.

The defense ministry delivered its plan to President Moon Jae-in Thursday as part of its annual policy briefing.

“Joint field exercises would take place all year-round after adjusting the scale,” the ministry said in a statement. 

The plan is also expected to affect a major summer exercise known as Ulchi Freedom Guardian, which the allies suspended last year for the first time in 28 years.

In his opening remarks at the briefing, Moon said South Korea’s strong defense had underpinned “a new chapter of history of peace on the Korean Peninsula.” 

“But it’s only provisional peace,” he said. “We have to establish unwavering, lasting peace next year.”

​Improved relations

Relations improved this year between the Communist North and rich, democratic South, technically still at war because the 1950-53 Korean War ended in a truce, not a peace treaty.

They have held three leaders’ summits and signed a pact to establish a no-fly zone, remove landmines and guard posts near their heavily guarded border.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un also met U.S. President Donald Trump in June at a historic summit in Singapore. They vowed to work towards denuclearization, but both sides have made little progress since then.

Stephen Biegun, the U.S. special representative for North Korea, said Wednesday humanitarian aid to North Korea could be expedited in a move seen aimed at reviving the stalled nuclear talks.

The larger military drills could be revisited if there is no progress in the talks, said Shin Beom-chul, a senior fellow at the Asian Institute for Policy Studies in Seoul.

“If no progress is made by the summer, the United States would face substantial pressure at home and could try to restart the Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercise,” he said.

The announcement Wednesday by the White House that the U.S. has defeated Islamic State (IS) in Syria and begun withdrawing troops from the country took many by surprise.

The Syrian civil war, now in its eighth year, is further complicated by the actions within its borders by four other countries: the U.S., Russia, Iran and Turkey.

​Why is the U.S. involved in Syria?

The U.S. mission in Syria has always been to defeat Islamic State, which in 2014 took over vast swaths of Iraq and Syria.

The United States has about 2,000 troops, mostly special forces, located mainly in northeast Syria. The troops act as advisers and provide support, including air power and weapons, for local militias, such as the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which is also fighting IS. Washington had given support — weapons and training — to moderate rebel groups fighting the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, but ended that support earlier this year.

The U.S. also leads a coalition of nearly 60 countries, the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS, that has targeted IS and other extremist groups with airstrikes since late 2014.

​Why is Russia involved?

Russia, a longtime Syrian ally, entered the conflict in Syria in 2015, offering the Assad regime weapons and air support, as well as troops on the ground.

Some also see Russia’s involvement as President Vladimir Putin asserting himself on the world stage, and a way for Russia to be an influence in the region.

When it began its air campaign in Syria, Moscow said it was targeting “terrorists,” which they said included IS and other terrorist groups. The U.S.-led coalition, however, said Russian airstrikes were targeting the non-IS rebel forces battling Assad’s government.

Why is Iran involved?

Iran’s engagement in Syria began gradually since the start of the country’s civil war in 2011, initially in the form of providing military advisers to the Syrian regime. The engagement later morphed into a full-scale military intervention where the regime sent its forces and employed its proxies to fight alongside Assad to crack down on the various Syrian rebel groups in the country.

By supporting Assad, Tehran has been able to maintain a regional presence against rivals Saudi Arabia and Israel. In October, U.S. lawmakers voiced concerns that Tehran might be in the process of establishing a long-term presence in Syria.

According to a report published by the U.S. Department of State in October, Iran has spent about $16 billion to destabilize the Middle East by funding proxy wars in different countries including Yemen, Iraq and Syria.

​Why is Turkey involved?

Turkey has supported non-Kurdish Syrian opposition groups, such as the Free Syrian Army (FSA), since the civil war began. They fear gains made by Kurdish groups in Syria would embolden the Kurdish population in Turkey to seek independence.

Turkey launched two military operations to help Syrian rebels recapture territory in Syria from Islamic State and the mostly Kurdish militia in Syria, the YPG, in August 2016 and January 2018. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan signaled earlier this month that Turkish forces may soon launch a new operation against U.S.-backed Syrian Kurdish militias in northern Syria, which is where most U.S. troops are based.

While Turkey is part of the U.S.-led coalition battling IS, the cooperation between U.S. and SDF forces has strained relations between Ankara and Washington.

Michael Flynn ended up in front of a sentencing judge this week partly because he took a six figure payoff from Turkey in exchange for trying to take down a guy named Fethullah Gulen in Pennsylvania. Just as Flynn was finally paying the price for this crime, word surfaced that Donald Trump was suddenly looking to extradite Gulen to Turkey. Palmer Report pointed out that Turkey had to have offered to personally compensate Trump in exchange for this, as it’s the only way Trump operates. Now we’re getting some answers.




Today, just one day after Michael Flynn’s hearing, the United States signed off on a $3.5 million missile sale to Turkey. Yes, Turkey is technically our NATO ally, and yes, we sell arms to them. But the timing here can’t be ignored – particularly considering that we’ve already seen Donald Trump use a U.S. weapons deal with Saudi Arabia as a shady way of compensating himself for doing the Saudi royal family’s bidding in Yemen.




Again, we don’t know precisely how Donald Trump is personally profiting from this arms deal with Turkey. But this is simply how he does these things. We’ve seen it time and again, to the point that after the news surfaced about him seeking to ship Gulen off to Turkey, we knew something like this would surface – and sure enough, it happened like clockwork.



Interestingly, Donald Trump isn’t even slightly trying to hide it anymore. He could have waited a month to sign this arms deal with Turkey, or he could have signed it now and then waited a month before seeking to turn over Gulen to Turkey. This is the latest sign that Trump appears to understand his remaining time in office is very limited and his ouster could come at any time – or at least his puppet masters do.



The post So this explains why Donald Trump is suddenly trying to extradite that guy to Turkey appeared first on Palmer Report.

The Guardian’s editor-in-chief, Katharine Viner, revisits the biggest stories of the year from the Windrush scandal, Cambridge Analytica and Facebook, the Brexit saga and the Trump administration to the World Cup and the royal wedding. Plus: Michael Braithwaite on how he got caught up in the Windrush scandal

When the Guardian’s Amelia Gentleman first broke the story of the Windrush scandal, there was very little political reaction. Her reporting revealed members of the Windrush generation had wrongly been classified as illegal immigrants. By the end of April, the scandal had claimed the job of the home secretary, Amber Rudd.

The Guardian’s editor-in-chief, Katharine Viner, recounts how the story developed over months of reporting, and looks back at the other major stories of the year. There was the exclusive report from Carole Cadwalladr that Cambridge Analytica used personal information harvested from more than 50m Facebook profiles without permission.
