Media captionPresident Trump: “We’ve had a long discussion already and so far I have gotten nothing!”

US President Donald Trump has welcomed Chinese President Xi Jinping to his Florida resort for their first summit.

Mr Trump said the two men had “developed a friendship” as they sat for dinner at his Mar-a-Lago retreat.

The American leader is expected to press his counterpart for action on North Korea, and Mr Xi to seek assurances on Taiwan.

Mr Trump has said the summit “will be a very difficult one”. Last year he accused China of “raping the US”.

During the election campaign, he said massive trade deficits and job losses could no longer be tolerated. But at dinner on Thursday, it was all smiles, with the leaders’ two wives, folk singer Peng Liyuan and First Lady Melania Trump also in attendance.

The meeting was, however, largely overshadowed later by a US airstrike on an airbase in Syria in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack.

An A-Z of big issues in tense US-China summit

Is Trump wise to take on China over trade?

All eyes will be on the body language between the two leaders – one a softly spoken Communist Party apparatchik and the other a brash Manhattan property tycoon.

Despite his tough campaign talk, Mr Trump has so far not followed through on his threat to formally brand China a “currency manipulator”, nor to hit Chinese imports with punitive tariffs.

The Republican president’s blue-collar supporters will hope he can translate his China-bashing election rhetoric into concrete gains for American manufacturing workers.

One of the most urgent issues for the US is North Korea, which is trying to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of hitting the west coast of the US with a nuclear device.

It fired a medium-range missile into the Sea of Japan on Wednesday, the latest in a series of launches.

Media captionWhat American and Chinese people want

Although Beijing has condemned this and previous missile tests, it has so far been reluctant to isolate its neighbour, fearing its collapse could spawn a refugee crisis and bring the US military to its doorstep.

Mr Trump is expected to call on Mr Xi to arm-twist North Korea into halting its nuclear programme by denying it access to banking institutions.

The US president told the Financial Times this week he was prepared to act unilaterally, saying: “If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will.”

Media captionMaureen and Isabella don’t see eye-to-eye on Trump

A senior White House official said Pyongyang would be a key test for the Trump-Xi relationship.

“The clock is very, very quickly running out,” the official said. “All options are on the table for us.”

For his part, Mr Xi will seek assurances from Mr Trump on US arms sales to Taiwan, which China considers a breakaway province that must eventually reunify with the mainland.

Mr Trump outraged China in December when he took the unorthodox step of accepting a phone call from the Taiwanese president.

But the US president later agreed to respect the “one China” policy in a telephone call with President Xi in February.

Climate change, which Mr Trump once dismissed as a Chinese hoax, and Beijing’s building of artificial islands in the disputed South China Sea, could also come up.

Some protesters lined the streets on Thursday to voice their opposition to China’s policy in the South China Sea.

Mr Xi’s visit will conclude with a working lunch on Friday.

But there is unlikely to be any golf on the agenda. While Mr Trump is fond of hitting the fairway, Mr Xi’s administration has cracked down on the sport in an anti-corruption drive

MOSCOW, April 7. /TASS/. The US missile strike against Syria’s facilities was an act of aggression and impairs both Russian-US relations and the key goal of fighting international terrorism, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday citing the opinion of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

President Putin considers the US strikes against Syria an act of aggression against a sovereign country violating the norms of international law, and under a trumped-up pretext at that,” Peskov stressed. He noted that the Syrian army has no stockpiles of chemical weapons. “The fact that all Syrian armed forces’ chemical weapons stockpiles were eliminated was registered and confirmed by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), a specialized UN unit,” he highlighted.

“Putin believes that the total disregard for the use of chemical weapons by terrorists only exacerbates the situation significantly,” Peskov went on to say. “Putin also sees the strikes on Syria by the US as an attempt to divert the attention of the international community from numerous civilian casualties in Iraq.”

“Washington’s move substantially impairs Russian-US relations, which are in a deplorable state as it is,” Peskov emphasized.

“And, most importantly, Putin believes that this step does not bring us closer to the ultimate goal in the fight against international terrorism. On the contrary, it creates serious obstacles to efforts in forging an international coalition to fight against it and effectively counter this global evil. By the way, US President Donald Trump proclaimed this as one of the key objectives during his election campaign,” the Kremlin spokesman explained.

The US military fired at least 50 cruise missiles at a military base of the Syrian government forces in the Homs province last night. The missile strike comes in response to what Washington believes was the Syrian government’s use of banned chemical weapons in the province of Idlib. The Tomahawk cruise missiles were intended for a single target – an airfield in the Homs province from which, according to the US intelligence data, the alleged chemical attack was launched.

US President Donald Trump confirmed that he had given the order to carry out the strike.

Eng. Yarisow "Somali Government is committed to National Security and the fight against terrorism, corruption and Poverty."

Mogadishu, 07 April 2017 – Somali Minister of Information Eng. Yarisow said the Federal Government of Somalia has taken major steps designed to bring peace back to Somalia by getting rid of terrorism with the assistance of Somali people. Somalia is ready to intensify the fight against Terrorism, Corruption and Poverty.

The president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo has yesterday 06 April 2017 declared war on al-Shabaab (aS) by announcing that Somalia is in a state of war with terror groups in Somalia while asking Somali people to stand side by side with the national army and security forces.

“I declare that Somalia is in a state of war. It will not be a war from one front. We’ve ordered the national army to get ready for waging this war to bringing peace back to Somalia. The second front will be waged by the Somali people whom we call upon assisting the army” declared Somali President.

President Farmajo offered amnesty and promised Somali government will take care those young people who denounce aS and its unlawful activities: “The government welcomes with open hand those young former al-Shabab members and will offer them full amnesty by also extending them education, create jobs. We call upon you to leave the rogue ideas of aS, the terrorist group as soon as possible. We give you an ultimatum of 60 days.”

The Somali government is engaged in a war with three fronts such as Terrorism, Corruption and Poverty. It has yesterday replaced all commanders of security institutions. This change of security chiefs is a way to redouble the efforts of bringing peace and stability in the country.

The President and the PM promised to prioritize security and yesterday's changes are part of the overall security reforms.

Somali government is fully committed to engage with the Somali public of all walks of life such as the Youth, Elders, Religious leaders and Women. As part of this, the Ministry of Information and Public Awareness is tasked to work with Somali people in maintaining the trust between the government and the public.

The Minister of Information and Public Awareness H.E. Abdirahman Omar Osman (Eng. Yarisow) said “the Somali people are the backbone of success for the government’s attempts to fight terrorism, corruption and poverty. My ministry will give priority to these areas of importance and call upon the Somali people to work with the government specially the youth to be part of this three front war. The Ministry of Information is open to the public and extremely happy to take its role in increasing the public awareness of government operations.”

It is time for Somali people to take stock of this government commitment and maintain their momentum in their support for Somali president, Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo which they gave during his election as the President of the Federal Government of Somalia.

Somalia will be better and be stabilized to reach self-sufficient in a limited time with the cooperation of the Somali people.

Somalia belongs to Somalia.

Press Statement
Mark C. Toner
Acting Spokesperson
Washington, DC
February 8, 2017


The United States congratulates the people of Somalia on the successful conclusion of their national electoral process. We congratulate Mr. Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed on his selection as the next President of the Federal Government of Somalia and look forward to working closely with him and a new government. We commend the Somali Security Forces and the African Union Mission in Somalia for their efforts over the past six months to allow the electoral process to unfold in a relatively safe and secure environment.

This transition represents an important step forward for the country. We commend the thousands of Somalis from across the country, including youth and women, who were able to vote in greater numbers than in the 2012 elections, but regret the numerous credible reports of irregularities in the electoral process. We encourage Somalia’s new administration to take credible steps to stamp out corruption and to establish strong electoral institutions to enable a free and fair one person one vote poll in 2020.

The United States looks forward to the timely formation of a new government, and to working in partnership with the President and new government to advance reconciliation, drought relief, security, and build the strong institutions to deliver good governance and development for the Somali people.
