A UN Security Council committee has agreed to lift a travel ban on North Korean officials heading to Singapore for the planned summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un next month, diplomats said.

Texas Governor Abbott considers 'red flag' gun law in wake of school shooting 24.5.2018 DNA: Money
Texas Governor Greg Abbott sought consensus on firearms in a second round of talks on preventing gun violence on campus on Wednesday and may look at "red flag laws" to keep guns out of the hands of people deemed by a judge to be danger to themselves or others. After last week's fatal shooting of 10 people in a Houston-area high school, Abbott invited the Texas State Rifle Association, affiliated with the National Rifle Association, and Texas Gun Sense, which favors tighter gun laws, to join him in Austin, the state capital. Abbott, a Republican, said the panel on Wednesday discussed ways to address mental health issues at schools, safe storage measures for firearms at homes and the so-called red flag warning laws.

Opposition in all hues for HD Kumaraswamy’s Big Day 24.5.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
They shook hands warmly, embraced each other and shared light moments. It was unprecedented, and a bonhomie never seen among the Opposition leaders in recent past.  The swearing-in ceremony of HD Kumaraswamy as Karnataka’s chief minister on Wednesday brought even the sworn enemies on a single stage. The massive show of strength by the opposition underlined that each one of the leaders is wary of the possibility of BJP’s Modi-Amit Shah duo pulling off yet another win in 2019 and is seriously trying to keep the bickering aside and form a joint front. Sitting next to Mayawati, Akhilesh Yadav in a way tried to confirm that the new found camaraderie between arch rivals BSP and Samajwadi Party that made them defeat the BJP in Gorakhpur and Phulpur was no fluke and is here to stay for some more time. Akhilesh was meeting Mayawati for the second time after his party pulled out upset wins in Gorakhpur and Phulpur with BSP’s support. Mayawati, who is eyeing the post of Prime Minister amid a concoction of rising ...

Uddhav Thackeray skips Karnataka, gets busy with Palghar bypoll 24.5.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Politics make for strange bedfellows. Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray skipped HD Kumarswamy’s swearing-in ceremony in Karnataka on Wednesday to spend time in his own backyard, to take on Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Aditynath in the Palghar by-poll campaign. Despite being allies in Maharashtra, the Sena is pitted against BJP in the Palghar bypolls that are slated for May 28. Former PM and JD(S) leader HD Deve Gowda had called Thackeray on Tuesday and invited him for his son’s oath-taking ceremony. However, Thackeray expressed his inability due to prior engagement.  “Uddhavji told him he was very busy with the Palghar bypoll and hence, would not be able to attend the ceremony. These elections are very important for us,” Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said. Thackeray’s move comes close on the heels of the widening rift between Shiv Sena and BJP. Thackeray, who has already announced party’s decision to go solo in the coming elections, is stepping up attack against PM Modi and CM Devendra Fadnavis. The Sena ...

Pompeo says funds to Pakistan under review, accuses Islamabad of mistreating US diplomats 24.5.2018 General News
The American financial assistance to Pakistan is under review, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told lawmakers today and accused Islamabad of treating US diplomats "badly". Pompeo was responding to questions from Congressman Dana Rohrabacher who said the US should stop providing any financial assistance to Pakistan until it releases Shakil Afridi, a doctor who helped the CIA hunt down Osama bin Laden in 2011. "With respect to Pakistan, we released far fewer funds in 2018 than in the year prior. The remainder of the funds available are under review. My guess is that that number will be smaller still," he told members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Rohrabacher said he sees no "reason" in giving any financial aid to Pakistan if it still keeps Afridi in jail. Pompeo said he worked "diligently" on the issue of Afridi in his previous role as the CIA Director, but acknowledged that he has been "unsuccessful" so far. "Please be aware that it's at my heart and I know it's important and .
