Kenya's Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the UN, Martin Kimani, reflects on his nation's role as a “clear voice for Africa” on the Security Council, and stresses the importance of calling out hypocrisy and colonial nostalgia on the global stage. Taking us behind the scenes of the UN's vote on Ukraine, he argues that Western countries should not have framed it as a matter of “East versus West”. He also discusses the challenges of nation building and explains why he would bet that African officials are some of the most advanced political engineers in the world.

Presiding over the UN Human Rights Council this year has felt like captaining a ship in the middle of a tsunami, Federico Villegas has told UN News in an interview in New York, with three world-shaping events threatening the very future of the Council itself.The COVID pandemic, climate change, and the war in Ukraine, have tested the rights system to its limit, but the fact the Council could take action over war in the heart of Europe by an “overwhelming majority”, while the Security Council was gridlocked with Russia using its veto, shows its value.Council President Villegas, spoke to Jerome Bernard of our UN News French service.

In early October 2022, Russia used its veto power to prevent the UN Security Council from collectively condemning its annexation of four Ukrainian regions. And it's not the first time that the country has used its permanent member status to veto a motion this year. The UN Security Council is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations, and it's responsible for ensuring international peace and security. To do so, the council uses diplomatic negotiation, although it can also authorize sanctions, and even the use of force. That happened during the Gulf War in 1990 for example, when a coalition of forces from 34 countries collaborated to defeat Iraq after its invasion of Kuwait. What is the Security Council? And why is Russia one of the five permanent members? Is the UN Security Council still relevant and useful to this day? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions!

North Korea launched a ballistic missile Thursday toward its eastern waters, South Korea's military said. The launch was the North's sixth round of weapons firings in less than two weeks, which has prompted condemnation from the United States and other countries. The country has fired nearly 40 ballistic missiles over about 20 different launch events this year, exploiting Russia's war on Ukraine and the resulting deep divide in the U.N. Security Council to accelerate its arms development without risking further sanctions. South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said the most recent launch was made Thursday morning but gave no further details like how far the weapon flew.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Ep 418 - Is Ukraine vs. Russia a Proxy World War? Guest: Jeffrey Simpson By Stuart McNish   Is the Ukraine-Russia war a proxy World War? Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says, “It is!” He contends NATO is “using Ukraine as a battering ram against the Russian state.” He says, “Russia is the target of one of the most ruthless proxy wars in modern history.”   US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, in a Washington Post article, confirmed that America's goal is to “‘weaken' Russia,” saying that “the only way to deal with a rogue regime is to reduce its capacity for harm.”   Anthony Pfaff, a Senior Fellow of the Atlantic Council, wrote, “With Russia already believing the war is effectively a battle against the West and NATO, there is the possibility that a potential Russian defeat could motivate Putin to expand the conflict by attacking NATO countries.”   More than six months into the conflict, Russian casualties continue to mount and the impact of the war is being felt in countries around the world. Cut off from normal trade, Russia has turned to another pariah state – North Korea – for weapons. This, in addition to Iranian drone purchases, shows sanctions are hurting Moscow. As a member of the Security Council at the UN, will the purchase of weapons from North Korea jeopardize Russia's status? Will the Russian invasion of Ukraine escalate from a proxy war to a world war, or is it a global conflict already?   We invited Jeffrey Simpson to join us for a Conversation That Matters about the expanding risks associated with Putin's determination to reclaim the Soviet Empire.

Insults, accusations and talk of war crimes and nuclear holocaust dominated the world's premier diplomatic stage on Thursday, as the United Nations Security Council met to debate how and whether anyone would be held accountable for the war in Ukraine. Russia's foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov called Ukraine's president, Volodymyr Zelensky, a “bastard,” but was not around long enough to hear what many of his counterparts had to say. After arriving 90 minutes late to the meeting — and missing the briefings given by António Guterres, the U.N. secretary general, and Karim Khan, Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court — Mr. Lavrov left early. The U.S. secretary of state, Antony J. Blinken, denounced President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia for saying on Wednesday that he could use all arms available to him in the war, interpreted by officials in both Russia and the West as a veiled reference to nuclear weapons. “Every council member should send a clear message that these reckless nuclear threats must stop immediately,” Mr. Blinken told the Security Council, in some of his sharpest comments since the war began. “Tell President Putin to stop the horror he started.” “One man chose this war. One man can end it,” he added. “Because if Russia stops fighting, the war ends. If Ukraine stops fighting, Ukraine ends.”See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

In President Biden's speech to the United Nations yesterday, he declared U.S. support for a long list of problematic leftist approaches to, among other things: climate change, food insecurity, human rights, international peace and the LGTBQ agenda. In the mix, he endorsed a particularly dubious idea: Adding more nations as veto-wielding permanent members of the UN Security Council. The Left has long promoted this idea as not only as a way to elevate the stature of their favorite Third World countries in various regions, but to diminish the clout of existing Western members, including the United States. Mr. Biden implicitly condemned Russia's use of its Security Council veto, yet favors giving that power to more states. The practical effect would be to eliminate whatever limited utility the Council still has, rendering it little more than an expensive, but utterly irrelevant, debating society.   This is Frank Gaffney.

We'll analyze with our guests the basic facts and try to make sense of what happened.00:11:04 - Russia and CSTO: The troubling aggression by Azerbaijan brought more troubles to Armenia's relationship with Russia and the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) which so far is not sending any military aid but will only send a fact-finding mission to Armenia. Do Armenians (including our leadership) have unrealistic expectations from the organization? Listen to us to find out.00:41:24 UN & International Reaction: Next, we'll analyze international reaction to the attack including Armenia's appeal to the UN Security Council as well as interests of Armenia's Southern neighbor Iran.00:54:35 War Communications: How did the Armenian government communicate with the public.

From ‘revolution' to war: deciphering Armenia's populist foreign policy-making processConversation with Dr. Vahram Ter-MatevosyanArmenian News Network/Groong - September 12, 2022Recently two AUA professors (Prof. Hovhannes Nikoghosyan and  Prof. Vahram Ter-Matevosyan) published a paper in Taylor and Francis Online (TANDF) that analyzes the foreign policy decision making (FPDM) process of the Nikol Pashinyan administration, titled: "From ‘revolution' to war: deciphering Armenia's populist foreign policy-making process". In this episode, we talk to one of the authors of the paper, Prof. Ter-Matevosyan.TOPICS:* Introduction (02:22) - We discuss how the idea for the paper arose and the process through which the two scholars went through to conduct their research. * TURKEY (22:51) - One specific aspect of the war, that played a significant role in the outcome, was Turkey's involvement. In our opinion, just by sharing with Azerbaijan accurate NATO signals and satellite intelligence in the form of targets to destroy is more than enough to consider its role as decisive. Turkey went beyond that of course. Thus, paying attention and estimating Turkey's willingness to intervene on behalf of Azerbaijan would be critical for Armenia's leadership. We of course have seen different members of the Pashinyan team assure the press and public, even weeks before the war, that Turkey would not dare intervene.    - Have you looked at this aspect of Armenia's foreign policy?    - What did Pashinyan's team do (or perhaps didn't do) in this area to accurately assess the risk of intervention from Turkey and to put mitigations to counter this risk?    - Was there any specific contact with Turkey in the run-up to Sep 2020?    - How critical were Pashinyan's and Armen Sarkissian's statements on the 100th anniversary of Treaty of Sevres?* RUSSIA ( 37:18) - Many, especially those in the pro-Pashinyan camp today, blame Russia for throwing Armenia under the bus for better relations with Turkey.     - What was the conduct of Pashinyan's foreign policy with Russia like, preceding and during the war?    - Are the claims that Russia deceived its ally Armenia correct?    - Did Russia in recent years ever send a signal to Armenia that it would help defend Artsakh? * AZERBAIJAN (46:56) - Many of the analysts we talk to state that it was pretty much obvious that Aliyev was gearing up for war starting from 2011 when he effectively rejected the peace deal being considered at the time. It is apparent that Azerbaijan also bid its time, preparing militarily but also tactically selecting a suitable period in time. In 2020, the world was preoccupied with Covid and in the US it was election season, as well as a period of near isolationism from foreign involvements in the Trump administration.    - Despite the external factors, was there anything that Armenia did bilaterally with Azerbaijan that could have delayed the war or helped change its outcome?    - What was the outcome of the infamous Dushanbe elevator meeting?Hosts:- Hovik Manucharyan TW/@HovikYerevan- Asbed Bedrossian TW/@qubriqGuest: - Prof. Vahram Ter-Matevosyan, an associate Professor and Chair of the Political Science and International Affairs Program at AUA.

Sarah Cliffe is the director of New York University's Center on International Cooperation (CIC). Prior to that, she held several leadership positions at the World Bank and United Nations. Sarah pioneered the work on fragile and conflict-affected states at the World Bank, serving also as the Special Representative for the 2011 World Development Report on Conflict, Security, and Development. At the UN, she spearheaded efforts to help countries build civilian capacities to strengthen peacebuilding and post-conflict transitions. Sarah's vast experience ranges from countries as diverse as Afghanistan, Rwanda, South Africa, Indonesia, and Timor-Leste. She began her career in the United Kingdom and has degrees from Cambridge University and Columbia University. This episode is full of big questions and insightful answers from the very beginning.  To start, we speak to Sarah about her formative years, and how her early impressions of fragility and conflict were actually shaped by her upbringing in a mining town in Wales at a time of social upheaval in the United Kingdom. She also shares her perspectives on what communities at risk in the UK, South Africa, and Rwanda had in common – and why some were more resilient. Our conversation then turns more conceptual, as we take a look at how the insights of her work at the World Bank on conflict, security, and development can help us understand today's global fragility trends. We then explore in depth the big challenges on the world stage ahead of the UN's General Assembly meetings in September. How are the growing tensions between the US, Russia, and China affecting global governance, especially the UN? How has Russia's invasion of Ukraine divided the international community and what are the perspectives of developing countries? What factors have influenced responses to refugees from Ukraine and beyond? How is the future of multilateralism intertwined with domestic politics? And are there any silver linings to geopolitical fragmentation and the new Cold War between the US and China? We conclude on a high note, talking about reasons to be hopeful – listen to the episode to hear Sarah share many more insights into geopolitics, fragility, and the future of global governance.  We conclude on a high note, talking about hope and how history can give us reasons to be hopeful.

Nelson Balido was the Two Mikes' guest today, and he very clearly and starkly laid out the still growing, Biden-made disaster for America that is occurring on its southern border. Mr. Balido is the president of the Border, Commerce , and Security Council. He said that anyone who says the open-border problem is "subsiding" is a liar; the total number of illegal aliens entering the country each month is a new record. The new aspect of this situation is that the Biden administration has zero interest in fighting the cartels that are moving so many illegals across the border and are establishing a stronger permanent presence inside the United States. Mr. Balido added that another problem is that Mexico is doing nothing to stop or even slow the flow of illegals. Indeed, there is reporting that the Cartels are fully involved in Mexico's electoral system, including funding political parties, even that of Mexico's current president. Mr. Balido said that remittances from illegal Mexican aliens living and working in the United States are the third largest component of Mexico's GDP, bigger than all other parts of the GDP, after oil and natural gas, and therefore it is in the Mexican government's interest to keep encouraging illegal immigration, especially among the low-skilled members of the country's "informal economy". Mr. Balido also said that the U.S. Border patrol is having trouble attracting new officers, and that more officers are leaving the service than are joining it. When you connect the dots, you find out the system is as follows: The Mexican government, being further controlled by the ever-growing power of the cartels, is encouraging illegal immigration to the US because it generates the 3rd largest GDP for Mexico through remittance. The cartels move illegal aliens, and traffic humans as it is the most lucrative black market operation; encompassing organs, children, sex workers… etc. The Open-Border policy serves a multi-purpose for the people controlling our government; destroying the culture, weakening society, and building a new citizenry that will enlist for only the benefits and self-security; this group of illegal recruits will no have no issues squashing with total violence any uprising waged against their tyrannical new rulers.

*) US attorney general says 'personally approved' Trump home search US Attorney General Merrick Garland has said he "personally approved" the dramatic raid on former American President Donald Trump's Florida estate. In a highly unusual move, he also requested the warrant justifying the search be made public — though he did not reveal the reason for the search. The Washington Post has reported that federal agents were looking for documents relating to nuclear weapons. It was not clear if such documents were recovered. *) IAEA chief warns of 'grave hour' at Ukraine nuclear plant The head of the UN nuclear watchdog has told the Security Council that the agency must be allowed to inspect Ukraine's Zaporizhzhia (zah-POH-reeja) nuclear plant. Rafael Grossi told an emergency meeting via video feed that fighting between Russian and Ukrainian soldiers near the site sparked a "grave" crisis. The clashes at and around Zaporizhzhia have led to urgent international calls for an end to fighting around the plant, the largest of its kind in Europe. *) Hostage drama at Beirut bank ends after armed man turns himself in A hostage standoff in which a gunman demanded a Beirut bank let him withdraw his trapped savings so that he could pay his father's medical bills ended seven hours later. After hours of negotiations on Thursday, 42-year-old food-delivery driver Bassam al Sheikh Hussein accepted an offer from the bank to receive part of his savings. He did not actually receive any of the money, according to his lawyer. His wife told reporters after his arrest that her husband “did what he had to do". *) Sri Lankan ex-president Rajapaksa arrives in Bangkok after fleeing protests Former Sri Lankan president Gotabaya Rajapaksa has arrived in Bangkok after his visa ran out following a month-long stint in Singapore. The Thai foreign ministry said it received a request from Colombo for the 73-year-old deposed leader to visit and an assurance that he would not seek political asylum. Earlier, Rajapaksa flew into Singapore from the Maldives on July 14 after fleeing a deepening economic crisis and widespread protests in Sri Lanka.

While the ice measured around 50-feet thick in 2012, the ground underneath "will have completely resurfaced by the end of September", the Glacier 3000 ski resort said in a statement.

Welcome to The Times of Israel's Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what's happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday. US correspondent Jacob Magid and Religions and Diaspora Affairs writer Judah Ari Gross join host Jessica Steinberg for today's podcast. Magid discusses how and why the Egyptian envoy berated Israel at the UN Security Council, following warmed relations between the two countries and its recent brokering of the ceasefire between Israel and Islamic Jihad. Gross reviews Saturday night's egalitarian reading of Lamentations during the Tisha B'Av fast at the Western Wall, amid expectations for tensions and possible protests from Orthodox extremists, as happened the year prior. Magid looks at the final decision not to lower the rank of US Security Coordinator, USSC, in Jerusalem to colonel from three-star general, possibly given the role it holds in coordinating between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. He also talks about the moderate rival Dan Samuels who nearly upset congresswoman Ilhan Omar in the recent primary race, one which pro-Israel groups sat out. Gross discusses the recent tensions between the Jewish Agency and the Russian government, which has threatened to close its branch of the Jewish Agency, which handles Jewish immigration from Russia.
