Putin warns on growing risks of nuclear war

President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw troops from Syria has rattled Washington's Kurdish allies, who are its most reliable partner in Syria and among the most effective ground forces battling the Islamic State group.

Trump said on Wednesday that the United States had defeated the radical Islamist militant group in Syria, and that this fulfilled the only goal for keeping U.S. troops in the country.

"But I assume that humanity has enough common sense and a sense of self-preservation in order not to reach the extreme point", he said. Russian Federation is there at the invitation of the Syrian government. "I've been campaigning on it for years, and six months ago, when I very publicly wanted to do it, I agreed to stay longer", Trump said in remarks on Twitter Thursday.

The United States has participated in the Syrian Civil War against the Islamic State, using the legality of the congressional Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) signed against al-Qaeda following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. "But it will be very bad for the whole of humankind, because it would take us to a very risky area".

According to Rosenstein, over 90 per cent of DoJ cases alleging economic espionage over the past seven years involve China. He said New Zealand is committed to upholding the rules-based worldwide order, and such cyber campaigns are unacceptable.

After President Donald Trump announced the US will pull out troops from Syria, which he claimed Russia is "not happy" about it, Russian President Vladimir Putin applauded the change, saying ISIS has been hit with "serious blows" and has been mostly wiped out. Putin has backed Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad militarily, helping the war to swing in his favor.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, a Trump supporter, called the withdrawal decision a "huge Obama-like mistake", the BBC reported.

"When it comes to military vessels, they have to be in touch with the Coast Guard", Putin said, since it controls who passes through the strait and when - couching it as a matter of navigation protocol. Putin claimed that Maria Butina - accused of trying to infiltrate the NRA and American conservative circles around the time of Trump's election - made the guilty plea because of the threat of a long prison sentence in the case, which Putin described as fabricated.

And as US President Donald Trump has made clear, the spokesman said, "Sanctions relief will follow denuclearization". The Prime Minister also shared four photographs of his meeting with the South Korean delegation.

"Getting out of Syria was no surprise". The pullout is also likely to strengthen Russia's role in Syria's future. We were doing there [sic] work. Though Putin seemed bored at times when reciting domestic statistics on agriculture production, he livened up whenever talk of nuclear war came his way. "Do we want to be there forever?" He added that Russian Federation only wishes to carve out a respectable seat at the table, one in which Moscow has equal standing with other major powers.
