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.

"In nineteen seventy, four intervention by Turkish military forces after Greek inspired coup in Cyprus the famous Borussia Resort region was shut down over one hundred hotels with a bed capacity of ten thousand has been empty. No forty six years United Nations Security Council resolution states that the ghost. Count Ghost town. Can only be resettled by its original inhabitants. But now the Turkish. Separate Prime Minister has announced that the beaches there will open today causing much consternation from Cyprus and Greece one, hundred Lucinda Smith. 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. Think this is hugely emotional for for separates greek-cypriots particularly, and it's just another thing I. think no guide to sort of. Prolong this arguments this maritime arguments niece.

U.S. Officials Plan To End Sanction Waivers On Iranian Oil
"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from CFA society, Washington DC, you've worked hard to grow your wealth. Make sure you're working with a wealth manager who has grown with you work with a CF HR holder. Learn more at the right question dot org. The US State Department is expected to tighten the screws on Iran's oil industry today and in doing so the US government is also going to be putting pressure on some of its own allies like Turkey and Japan, those countries and a few others have been given waivers from sanctions to continue buying Iranian. 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. It's just a gradual push to keep ramping up the rhetoric on Iran to try and change the behavior of the regime in Tehran. Dmitri says stuff a low is the Washington bureau chief for the financial times joining us this morning, thanks for your time to meet you. Thank you.
