PHOTO THOMAS SAMSON, ARCHIVES AFP

Agence France-Presse PARIS Six hauts responsables ou conseillers de la présidence française sous le mandat de Nicolas Sarkozy (2007-2012) étaient en garde à vue mercredi dans le cadre d’une enquête sur des sondages commandés sans appel d’offres, selon une source proche du dossier. Claude Guéant et Xavier Musca, qui se sont succédé au poste de «Secrétaire général de l’Élysée» (plus proche collaborateur du président) à cette époque, ainsi que l’ancienne directrice de cabinet de Nicolas Sarkozy, Emmanuelle Mignon, étaient entendus, tout comme trois anciens conseillers de la présidence. M. Guéant a notamment été ministre de l’Intérieur durant la présidence de…

George W. Bush plus populaire que Barack Obama

PHOTO JEWEL SAMAD, ARCHIVE AFP

Agence France-Presse WASHINGTON L’ex-président George W. Bush, au pouvoir de 2001 à 2009, est plus populaire parmi les Américains que son successeur Barack Obama, selon un sondage CNN/ORC publié mercredi. Selon cette enquête, 52 % des personnes interrogées ont une opinion favorable de l’ancien président républicain contre 49 % pour l’actuel occupant démocrate de la Maison-Blanche. L’éloignement du pouvoir et une relative discrétion dans les médias ont semble-t-il du bon : c’est la première fois depuis dix ans que George W. Bush, qui a quitté la présidence en janvier 2009 au plus bas dans les sondages, à plus d’opinions favorables que défavorables (52 % contre 43 %)…

Russia dismisses EU criticism of travel blacklist

Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov attends a meeting with United Arab Emirates Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan in Moscow

Russia criticised the European Union on Monday for allowing the publication of a list of European officials barred from entering the country in the diplomatic fallout over theUkraine crisis. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Moscow, which drew up the list in response to a similar ban on Russian officials by the EU, had handed over the list to the EU “confidentially.” The EU says the travel bans are unjustified and a list seen by Reuters at the weekend showed 89 European politicians and military leaders were included on it. “The reverse sanctions that were introduced applied to officials who have been most…

Russia imposes travel ban on 89 EU politicians

(Reuters)…Russia has imposed an entry ban on 89 European politicians and military leaders, according to a list seen by Reuters, a move that has angered Europe and worsened its standoff with the West over Moscow’s role in the Ukraine conflict. More than 6,200 people have been killed in fighting between Ukrainian government forces and pro-Russian separatists. Russia dismisses accusations from Ukraine, NATO and Western powers that it is supporting the separatists with arms and its own troops. The list, which says it was compiled by the Russian foreign ministry and handed to a European Union delegation in Moscow this week, includes outspoken critics of Russia as well as security…

Cuba removed from US terror list

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. has taken Cuba off its list of state sponsors of terrorism. Secretary of State John Kerry has signed an order removing Cuba from the U.S. terrorism blacklist as part of the process of normalizing relations between the Cold War foes. Kerry acted 45 days after the Obama administration informed Congress of its intent to do so. Lawmakers had that much time to weigh in and try to block the move, but did not do so. The step comes as officials from the countries continue to hash out details of restoring full diplomatic relations, including opening…

China resets Latin America

Pravda

China is busy doing the things that Russia can not do for economic reasons – the Celestial Empire is changing the world order. One can say that China is conquering the world with loans. Latin America is of special importance for China at this point. Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang is touring South America and signed landmark agreements with Brazil. China is conquering the world not with weapons, but with loans. After the events on Tiananmen Square in 1989, the Chinese leadership understood what Wall Street’s globalization may bring. China still lives under numerous Western sanctions. For example, Chinese companies are not allowed to…

There was no word on casualties among the separatists, who Kiev, NATO and Western countries say are…

MICHEL VIATTEAU, VALÉRIE LEROUX Agence France-Presse RIGA, Lettonie La chancelière allemande Angela Merkel a appelé jeudi, avant un sommet à Riga, six pays de l’ex-URSS à ne pas nourrir de «fausses attentes» d’intégration européenne, et a assuré la Russie que leur rapprochement avec l’UE n’était pas dirigé contre elle.

Hillary Clinton emails will not be released until January 2016, says State Department

John Locher,AP

(The Guardian)… The State Department has set itself a deadline of January next year to release 55,000 pages of emails sent from a private account by Hillary Clinton when she was secretary of state. The longer-than-expected timetable will mean the emails, which have marred the launch of Clinton’s presidential campaign, will not be released until just before the first key events of the presidential nomination process – the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary. Clinton handed over 30,000 work-related emails to the State Department in December 2014, but she held back as many other emails that her lawyers said were private. In March,…
