Iran has invited U.N. inspectors to visit its Arak heavy-water production plant on December 8, the first concrete step under a cooperation agreement to clarify concerns about Tehran's disputed nuclear program. Yukiya Amano, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, also said the IAEA was looking into how Sunday's agreement between Iran and six world powers to curb Tehran's nuclear activity could be "put into practice" concerning the U.N. agency's role in verifying the deal. The IAEA will expand its monitoring of Iran's uranium enrichment sites and other facilities under the interim accord, reached after marathon talks between Iran and the United States, France, Germany, Britain, Russia and China. "This will include the implications for funding and staffing," Amano told the IAEA's 35-nation governing board, according to a copy of his speech. "This analysis will take some time. I will consult the board as soon as possible when it has been completed." More»

The United Arab Emirates has won the right to host the 2020 World Expo in Dubai, sparking national jubilation as the business and tourism hub secured a fillip to its recovering economy. Five years after its damaging economic crisis, Dubai on Wednesday became the first Middle Eastern country to host the expo, fending off competition from Ekaterinburg (Russia), Izmir (Turkey), and São Paulo (Brazil) in the international vote held in Paris. Expos, dating back to the great exhibition of 1851 in London, are held every five years and allow nations to create their own pavilions to showcase national development in science and culture. Dubai, which has been planning its bid since 2009, will build its expo complex near its new airport in the city’s desert outskirts, where the emirate is set to unveil a massive expansion potentially trebling the city’s passenger capacity by 2020. After the announcement, a fireworks display lit up the world’s tallest tower, the Burj Khalifa in downtown Dubai. More»

The United Nations says its aid convoys cannot reach around 250,000 people in areas besieged by Syrian government forces or rebels, despite "growing needs and intensifying conflict". The detailed assessment was included in a confidential paper that Valerie Amos, U.N. emergency relief coordinator, presented to a private, unannounced U.N. meeting in Geneva on Tuesday. "The response is continuing but falling short, especially in besieged and hard-to-reach areas," said the report, obtained by Reuters. "Besieged communities continue to be cut off." International mediator Lakhdar Brahimi announced on Monday that peace talks would be held on January 22, the first direct talks between the government of President Bashar al-Assad and opposition forces seeking to topple him. The U.N. document entitled "Humanitarian Situation and Response in Syria" painted a grim picture, saying there were 900 armed clashes in Syria in October compared with 500 in May. More»

Libya will build a satellite surveillance system with Italian expertise to help secure its borders, its defense minister said, part of Tripoli's plans to stem the flow of Islamist militants and illegal immigrants. Western powers worry that the sprawling North African state has become a safe haven for al Qaeda fighters as its government struggles to rein in militias and former rebels who helped topple longtime autocrat Muammar Gaddafi two years ago. Weak border controls and a small army lacking training and equipment have turned Libya into a weapons smuggling route for al Qaeda in sub-Saharan countries and also a transit corridor for Islamist fighters heading to Syria's war. Human traffickers also smuggle refugees over the remote desert borders with Egypt, Sudan or Chad into Libya from where they try reach Italy by boat. Hundreds died in the past two months on their way to Lampedusa, an island south of Sicily. More»

Gunmen on a motorbike shot dead two Russian military instructors in the Yemeni capital on Tuesday, a Yemeni police source said. The source said the instructors, who worked with the Yemeni army, were shot as they left a hotel where they were staying in the southern part of the capital. Dubai-based al-Arabiya television reported that one Russian military adviser was killed and another was wounded in the attack. An official at the Russian embassy said he could not confirm that Russians had been killed in the incident but said there were no Russian military instructors currently in Yemen. The Russian Defence Ministry could not immediately be reached for comment. The Yemeni army had long relied on foreign advisers as it sought to quell militant elements in parts of the country but it has phased out most of that program and only a handful remain. More»

When push came to shove in the closing hours of marathon negotiations in Geneva on Iran's nuclear program, it was President Barack Obama, back at the White House, who approved the final language on the U.S. side before the historic deal was clinched. It was perhaps only fitting that Obama had the last say. His push for a thaw with Tehran, a longtime U.S. foe, dates back to before his presidency, and no other foreign policy issue bears his personal stamp more since he took office in early 2009. Behind the risky diplomatic opening is a desire for a big legacy-shaping achievement and a deep aversion to getting America entangled in another Middle East conflict - motives that override misgivings to the Iran deal expressed by close allies Israel and Saudi Arabia. That may explain why Obama, even as he left the troubleshooting to Secretary of State John Kerry and gave him much of the credit for securing the diplomatic coup, has taken "ownership" of the Iran issue like no other.

Clashes between Libyan troops and Islamist militants in the eastern city of Benghazi killed at least three people and wounded a dozen more during a military operation, medical sources and witnesses said on Monday. Gunfire and explosions could be heard in the city and thick smoke rose from the Ras Obeida area, witnesses said. Libya's new military is struggling to contain Islamist militants and dozens of rival militias who fought in the NATO-backed uprising against Muammar Gaddafi but refuse to disarm two years after this downfall.

People in the Middle East will lose sleep over a nuclear deal between global powers and Iran, a Saudi foreign policy adviser said on Sunday, signalling the deep unease Sunni Muslim Gulf states have over Western rapprochement with their Shi'ite foe. At the time the adviser spoke, Saudi Arabia had not officially responded to news of the deal under which Western countries will ease sanctions in return for curbs on Iran's nuclear programme. Riyadh has frequently called for Washington to maintain a tough line with Tehran. Abdullah al-Askar, chairman of the foreign affairs committee in Saudi Arabia's appointed Shoura Council, a quasi-parliament that advises the government on policy, stressed that he had no knowledge of his government's official response but was personally worried. "I am afraid Iran will give up something on [its nuclear programme] to get something else from the big powers in terms of regional politics. And I'm worrying about giving Iran more space or a freer hand in the region," he said. "The government of Iran, month after month, has proven that it has an ugly agenda in the region, and in this regard no one in the region will sleep and assume things are going smoothly," Askar said.

Iran will get as much as $7 billion in relief from economic sanctions over six months under the first-step agreement reached today in Geneva, the Obama administration said. In return for Iran limiting its nuclear program, the interim agreement provides for the release of $4.2 billion in frozen oil assets and will let Iran continue exporting oil at current levels, rather than forcing continued reductions by buyers, as would be required under current law, according to a White House statement. The accord also will “suspend certain sanctions on gold and precious metals, Iran’s auto sector and Iran’s petrochemical exports, potentially providing Iran approximately $1.5 billion in revenue,” the administration said. Sanctions have cost Iran $120 billion in lost revenue since the U.S. and European Union started imposing strict penalties on energy, ports, insurance, shipping, banking and other Iran-related transactions in 2010, according to U.S. Treasury estimates. While almost all U.S. trade with Iran has been banned for decades, other than food and medical supplies, U.S. restrictions now apply to other countries that trade with the Islamic Republic. More»
