"Known that if we want to be a democratic country, then we have to join the alliances, which protect these values. And of course, within these alliances, we also have raised these concerns that we have felt for the European security and I think that after 2008 war and after 2014 war, European Union and also NATO member states have certainly understand which kind of threat Russia poses to Europe and it was also agreed that the NATO summit last June that it shows that we have at the moment joined understanding that Russia poses threat for Europe. Is there any doubt in your mind or the mind of other Estonian politicians or even other Baltic governments that that commitment to article 5 by the rest of NATO is absolutely solid whatever happens. I know you met U.S. Secretary of State Anthony blinken in Tallinn earlier this week and I think you spoke to him in D.C. a few weeks ago as well is Estonia completely confident that if article 5 was tested, NATO would rise to that test. Yes, we are absolutely confident that this article 5 will be implemented when Russia really decides to threaten any of its neighbors or any other NATO countries. And the U.S. has really explicitly repeated its commitment to article 5 and also when president Obama visits Italian already a few years back he said the defense of Charlene or Riga is as important for NATO as the defense of Berlin or Paris and we have seen that the current U.S. administration has repeated these commitments. So we don't have any reason to be doubtful about the article 5, but what we have seen also that the security situation in Europe has changed. And therefore, of course, we must continue to strengthen the defense and deterrence for NATO. And this is also the reason why we are in very close consultations with our allies so that we can make right decisions with disregard. Nevertheless, are there still disagreements right now within NATO especially about what the proper way forward is. As you will know, Estonia's defense minister Calais Lana said this week that he personally supports closing Ukrainian airspace. He did of course say that he realized this has to be a collective undertaking by NATO and the Estonia would abide with any decisions NATO makes. But how do you feel personally about that? Do you agree with the defense minister? With regard to no flight zone in the airspace of Ukraine, then of course it is a very important discussion because we have to find ways how to support civilians in Ukraine and also how to protect nuclear power plants in Ukraine. And here, of course, the discussion also at the United Nations Security Council with this regard are very important because United Nations Security Council has legal power to give this permission to have the no fly zone. But of course, when you speak about military capability, then there are few countries and alliances who have this capacity, but here I would say that I agree with NATO secretary general who says that at the moment NATO is not planning to provide no fly zone over Ukraine. And you also concerned at all about the effect that this might have on relations between Estonian and Russian speaking communities in Estonia, Estonia has passed this law threatening prison for anyone who helps the Russian or the Belarusian military. Why do you think that was necessary?.

Myanmar Erupts in Protests After Military Coup
"Seeing members of the civilian government arrested on military vehicles back on the move has sent a shudder of apprehension across Myanmar people. The BBC has contacted their have spoken of their fear about what comes next. The military coup has taken the outside world by surprise, too. The United States government has announced it will rethink its decision on sanctions, which were lifted in light of the moves towards democracy since 2010 at night people in towns and cities in Myanmar bang pots and pans in protest of the military takeover. Jonathan head. Military coups. Real hunters taking over with uniforms, lots of braid and tanks on the streets. It becomes such an aberration that when they do happen, there is always an element of disbelief. It's as though a part of our breakneck technology driven world is suddenly catapulted back Toe a bad movie from the 19 seventies. One that took place in Mama on Monday was especially baffling as it was carried out by an army which had designed the Democratic system it over through and it kept so much political power under it. Coup seemed unnecessary. And it deposed, uncensored uchi, a leader once idolized as a fearless champion of freedom but who in defending the military against charges of genocide was then denounced as a fallen angel. Gamma is a fearfully complicated country with a history, which has bean traumatic even by Southeast Asia's turbulence standards. Get the rest of the world has bean unable to see it this way because of the overpowering draw of a woman veiled in a mythical aura, combining fragile femininity with steely resolve magnetic charm. With imperious detachment. She was the stuff of fairy tales, holding out a loan against an antediluvian and brutal military and eventually cajoling them into giving the Burmese people free elections. And in huge numbers, they chose her. That narrative, though, has been hard to square with the woman who also appeared callously insensitive to the horrors endured by Muslim RA hinges on her watch. Now we're being asked to reengage with uncensored DCI in military custody Once more. I've seen lively debates among engaged Burma watches over whether she should be supported again as the imprisoned symbol of her people's democratic aspirations. Or not, because of the many undemocratic impulses she showed, is the country's defacto leader. How did we get so focused on this one person in a country of 55 million and in a region with so many other woeful tales of injustice that deserve our attention. Partly it's about timing. Went on sans Souci first emerged as a political figure in 1988 on what was supposed to be a short trip home from Britain, where she lived with her British husband and two sons, Burma as it was then called Was little known trapped in military imposed isolation. A terrible repression of the protest movement. She led on the start of her long incarceration coincided with the collapse of communism in Europe and the rise of a new World order. In which it was hoped Western or U. N. Led intervention could write many of the world's wrongs. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, just a year after the release of Nelson Mandela from prison, and it was hard not to see similarities in their dignity and fortitude. Like Mandela, uncensored cheese. Long periods of isolation under house arrest meant that few got to know her well, and the world instead projected an ideal ized version onto a complex and difficult personality. She came to embody the optimistic belief that the arc of history in the memorable phrase used by President Obama, whose visit to Myanmar marks the high point of uncensored cheese reputation. Was bending inevitably towards democracy and freedom. Fast forward to this year, and all that optimism has long since dissolved in the disappointments in Afghanistan and Iraq in a global financial crash in bitterly polarized politics. And now a pandemic. Few believe anymore in the kind of miracles that Myanmar's transition to democracy was once thought to be. United Nations Security Council, the embryonic world government that never, Watts has mastered a statement of concern over Mama, which failed even to mention the coup the illegal overthrow of an elected government. On San Souci is now being charged with the laughable a fence of possessing illegal walkie talkies. That will be enough, though for the hunter to disqualify her from the new election. It's promising to hold eventually. Have done this to her before, but she is now 75 years old. If she manages another political reincarnation, the generals are betting she'll no longer be the resolute figure they've bean unable to beat for so long. And perhaps it's time for all of us. Even the party she founded and has dominated for more than three decades to let go of the woman. They still call Mother Sue and the Lady. And to seek younger personalities who can chart Myanmar's future.

Pompeo Attempts To Cement Trump's Legacy In Israel Ahead Of A Biden Presidency
"Workers at the Capitol are dressing up the West Front for Joe Biden's inauguration, members of the current administration are rushing to cement Donald Trump's policies in place. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo was in the Middle East. This past week, he unveiled new pro Israel policies that could be hard for an incoming Biden administration to undo NPR's Daniel Estrin reports from Jerusalem. Compelled, became the first secretary of state to visit an Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. He had lunch at a winery that named one of its wines, Pompeo. The U. S used to take a dim view of settlements, seeing their growth as an obstacle to peace because they take up land Palestinians claim for an independent state. But Pompeo says Israel has a right to settle the land featured in the Bible for a long time State Department. Took the wrong view of settlements. It took of you that didn't recognize the history of this special place. Pompeo announced a new policy favoring the winery He visited products made in West Bank settlements must be labeled made in Israel when shipped to the U. S. A ghetto front with peace now and Israeli group against Settlements says this could make it hard for consumers who don't want to support settlements if people want to boycott Or not to participate in the occupation. They can do it by not buying products from settlements. This is going to be labors that his friends and they cannot know if it's from occupied territories. Then. Boyce is being revealed all of Israel. Pompeo announced another new policy last week. Today. I want to make one announcement with respect to a decision by the State Department that we will regard The global any Israel BDS campaign as anti Semetic BDS has boycott divestment and sanctions, a movement that calls to boycott Israel because of its policies toward Palestinians. Some Israel supporters see it as a threat because some boycotters oppose Israel itself as a Jewish state, But boycott activists say it's a non violent form of protest. So why unveil these new policies right before Biden takes over. Dead. Ravi V. And Israeli settler leader close to the Trump administration says Pompeo is playing chess with Biden one step before Checkmate. It's putting buy them some sort of check. If you really reversed his decision that were done by the constant ministrations. You might have to confront criticism. As to why doing it. Other administrations have taken steps on Israeli Palestinian policy right before leaving office, like when President Obama allowed the United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israel's settlements. Scott Lisinski was an adviser for the Obama administration. President Clinton himself using his presidential transition, trying to move Middle East peace forward George Shultz at the end of the Reagan presidency. Negotiating a very careful formal diplomatic dialogue, the first ever between American and Palestinian leaders. These are examples of diplomatic opportunism. Palestinian leaders see this as their opportunity to make nice with Biden. They've agreed to resume security and economic ties with Israel after a six month stand still, and they say they might change a practice, Democrats criticized paying stipends to Palestinians convicted of attacking Israelis. Many Palestinians criticized the gestures like former Minister Nabil Armor in this video he posted. He had the infertile into Paloma that America, he says. Why give more ground before Biden enters office, while Israel is taking advantage of this time to announce more settlement construction. Israel got another boost yesterday with news that the U. S. Justice Department decided not to renew restrictions on the parole of former U. S intelligence analyst Jonathan Pollard. He was convicted of espionage for giving classified U. S documents to Israel and is now expected to move to Israel where he has popular support.

The eastern will correspondent for the Times joins me now Hannah. Thanks thanks for coming on. Can you remind us of the events leading up to the closing of the region? Show well, of course, Cyprus in Nineteen, seventy, four, a war broke out but really the tensions on the been going on for more than a decade already between the two communities. The Greek speaking community on the Turkish speaking community. Now, in nineteen seventy four, what happened was that backed by Greece the Greek Cypriots tend to do. In response to that the Turkish army INVADED IN THE NORTH And progress down to the South and actually the line that they take. Shami was planning to progress to stops just north of Rocha. Rocha shouldn't have been part of the part of the territory take. Mohtashami. But they did in fact, take it. Well, it didn't do was opening up again to the public. They kept originally kind of bargaining chip hyping to sort of extract some concessions from the Greek separate side using this kind of faulting chip of Rocha. But she what's happened is that for forty six years, it's remained behind barbed wire, its military zone, the only people who are allowed. That are Turkish military personnel I'm very occasionally U. N. personnel now. On the did kind few images that we've seen coming from. This is really kind of striking quite eerie. Once, very, very lavish resort place where people like Elizabeth Taylor and severe ran went on holiday. Now just completely crumbling to dust. So what are the latest developments? So actually totta are the north separate prime minister announced. August. That the Russia was going to be redeveloped and reopened. Now this is something entirely near this is who come up cyclically disgust every so often. And so in a way. You know again it's you know one of these ideas and they'll never come to fruition. But as you said on Tuesday nights totta made the announcement while he was nine crowd that is going to be open today, not the whole town, just the beachfront But the really significant thing about this is that that was just five days away from the presidential elections in no Cypress scheduled to be held on Sunday Ersan Tatars candidate in those elections and I think the really interesting thing you mentioned that it's this announcements is met with a huge amount of opposition from. A Greek Cypriots and from Greece is also met with quad loss of opposition from Turkey separates as well It says caused the government of North. Cyprus a coalition government collapsed to one junior partner said it was pulling out that coalition and so her fide by this kind of sudden announcement and submit Prank and I think you know lots of people that know Cypress particularly Essen Tatas political opponents thing. But he's really using this as a kind of political stunt to give him the edge in Sunday's elections but I mean it's illegal isn't it? How does Turkey justify it? It. Is Legal Yeah as you said, according to the UN if anyone's going to be resettled in Russia, they have to be the original residents, most of whom were Greek separates. Now thought present factors has recognized the ship of the proper does the commission up. To, look into how the original owners of properties in brochure could be compensated Most of those people wanted some kind of compensation. Some wanted their properties back. But yeah. The fact is you know if any redevelopment of that town is going take place, there's this two major issues in all Cyprus firstly is the town the for forty six years has just been crumbling into the ground. It's GonNa take music. You're going to have to be kind of a demolished and reconstructed which might work, and secondly that is an she is going to cost Cyprus huge amounts of money if they want to do this in the kind of legal and proper way, and let's not forget the no. Cypress's is a country this only recognized by Ankara, it's pretty widely embargoed eighty four. For its economic survival is much propped up by Ankara saying it's places kind of ready access to to the funds needed to do something like this. So I think the question amongst. People position or is this just an election stunt? Is The beach just going to be open for feed is a member. She was just going to be closing lucky walls before a finally Hannah. How this feed into Turkeys dispute with European Union members Cypress and Greece territorial rights in the eastern Mediterranean. Yes sure I mean I think it's coincidence that is nouncement was made in Ankara. The obviously, no cypresses almost entirely dependent on anchor for it survivor. Essen Tatars. I said is the is kind of anchors favored consciousness elections, but we'll see this is why dispute going on in Syria and Cyprus and in the eastern Mediterranean more broadly which she the tickets very much. The House of it's about the converged UNSEE gas. It's about maritime sovereign say on that those people down over the past few weeks rather still not been resolved and I.

Oil. Those waivers are expected to end joining us to talk about it is Dimitri Sevastopol. Oh, he is the Washington bureau chief for the financial times he's been reporting on this. Good morning wanting to have it. So these are waivers to sanctions that are expected to be taken away. Can you just step back and remind is what these sanctions were in the first place. Sure. Well, the US sanctions on Iran for a long time. But when the Obama administration signed a deal with Iran in two thousand fifteen the landmark Yvonne new. Nuclear deal with the other permanent. Members of the national said the United Nations Security council, they essentially arranged for waivers. So that sanctions that were in place before would not be enforced. Not when Donald Trump pulled out of Iran nuclear deal in may of two thousand eighteen he's signaled that he was going to snap back on those sanctions that had been wait for a long time. In connection with that. The US have been trying for a long time to get its allies and some apart of countries to reduce the reports of Iranian oil. Anyway, then leading up to November when the broad sanctions on Iran were put back on last year. The administration said it was going to make sure that it's always partners reduced oil imports me around two zero. However, when it got close to the point it actually did give a set of eight waivers to the countries that you mentioned and said, it would give them more time one hundred and eighty days to start trying to reduce their imports on their reliance on Iran. Some of those countries, Greece, Italy and Taiwan actually got their imports. I think pretty much down to zero but the others China, India Japan, South Korea and Turkey still have a way to go. So basically, what's happening? This morning is secretary of state Mike Pompeo is going to say on may second waivers will no longer exist. And do you will face the potential of US sanctions if you import Iranian oil, and as the expectation that this could have a big affect on. On Iran, and is always the the goal in tough moves like this to try and change the behavior of the regime what it's definitely going to have a greater impact on the Iranian economy, which is already suffering very hard under existing sanctions. So it's going to have more of an effect there on one of the other questions, obviously is whether it's going to impact or prices in the global market and to what extent could do that. I mean, could we see, you know, a big spike in gas prices over the summer well a year ago? The Trump administration justified giving the waivers it said this an oil markets are very tight right now if we put squeeze on it could be bad for the US economy. Well, oil prices are reasonably high right now as well. They hit a high of seventy four dollars in Asia trading over nice, which is not far from where they wear your go. What the administration here is counting on is that Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates will actually step in and provide output to make up for the shortfall from cutting Iranian. But whether it can do that or not will obviously be. The test. They say I talked to an official last night who said that they've arranged us. But you know, these things come full through. So I think that's going to be the real test and briefly why now is administration doing this? Now. Oh, well, they say that they're logic. They say is that it's not conducive to do this. Because oil prices aren't as tight as they wear year ago. But the number of people who would who would doubt that I think it's also partly that.
