  • Igor Grosu
    Igor Grosu “The plebiscite is a chance for Moldovans to show loudly and clearly that we are Europeans. ... We are not entering Europe, we are returning to it.” 7 hours ago
  • Maia Sandu
    Maia Sandu “Joining the EU is the best thing we can give this and future generations.” 7 hours ago
  • Igor Dodon
    Igor Dodon “We are categorically opposed to this referendum. We are not saying 'no' to talks with the EU and we are not opposed to the EU. We oppose Sandu using it as an instrument for her own interests and those of her party. We are therefore asking voters during the campaign not to take part in the referendum.” 7 hours ago
  • Ben Hodges
    Ben Hodges “Since the fall of Avdiivka in Ukraine's east on February 17 [2024], its forces have oozed forward, swallowing several villages, as Ukrainian forces have performed tactical retreats. Here we are in April [2024], and [the Russians] are oozing out. Why is that? I think it's because that's the best the Russians can do. They do not have the capability to knock Ukraine out of the war. Russia lacked the ability to equip large armoured formations that could move rapidly, with supporting artillery, engineers and logistics. I don't think it exists. That's why I feel fairly confident that the mission for [Ukrainian] general Oleksandr Syrskyi for the next several months is to stabilise this as much as he can to buy time for Ukraine to grow the size of the army, to rebuild the defence industry of Ukraine, as well as give us time to find more ammunition for them. I think of 2024 as a year of industrial competition. So the army has got to buy time.” 9 hours ago

“Iran is playing with the fate of all people in the Middle East and has led an entire region to the brink of the abyss. The aim now is to stop Iran without further escalation. Iran's plan to sow further violence must not work. Israel has our full solidarity and can rely on us. We also do not forget the many dozens of Israeli hostages who are still being held captive in Hamas tunnels. They must finally be released.”

“This is the start of our response. We do not seek conflict in the Middle East or anywhere else, but the president and I will not tolerate attacks on American forces.”

“My message to the Arab world, particularly to the Gulf, is where are you? Because they're making billions each day on oil revenues. A tiny fraction of those oil revenues would see UNRWA's financial problems disappear overnight. This unconscionable gap inflicted by these Western countries would be filled very quickly. Some of the most desperate people in the Middle East are now facing starvation, they're facing famine, and the Arab states need to step up to the plate.”

“Southern European countries, like Italy and Greece, are concerned about the ramifications of a wider regional war involving Iran that could create a massive refugee crisis. American and European leaders are firm supporters of the Abraham Accords normalising relations between Israel and some Arab countries. The current war in Gaza jeopardises the ongoing peace process in the Middle East at a time when the West needs to confront Russia in Ukraine and deter China over Taiwan.”

“Biden, who promised to put human rights at the centre of his foreign policy, has ignored US clients' human rights violations and has been supporting strongmen who rule with an iron fist, while the region teeters under violent sectarian and authoritarian regimes. Washington cannot in good conscience claim to confront Russia and China in the name of democracy, human rights and the preservation of sovereignty, while appeasing colonialism and dictatorship in the Middle East or elsewhere. It is hypocritical and it is counterproductive.”

“In total, two-thirds of the ships sent are directed to Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. The recovery of Ukrainian food exports through the grain corridor had a positive effect on the reduction of prices as in August, after first shipments were completed, wheat prices fell by at least five percent. The Russians' fakes about sending Ukrainian grain only to Europe simply do not correspond to reality.”

“He's intent on ensuring that there is not a vacuum in the Middle East for China and Russia to fill, that American leadership and American engagement will be a feature of US policy in this region, and that we intend to play a critical role in this strategically vital region on an ongoing basis.”

“The Pentagon deployment to the UAE is primarily aimed at securing US assets in the country and not necessarily meant to meaningfully help with protecting the Emirates from Houthi drone or ballistic missile fire. The gesture of support does not mean a renewed emphasis on the region by Washington. The United States has no interest in getting sucked back into a conflict in the Middle East, especially not in Yemen.”

“Russia's overall policy in the Middle East is to be friends with all, allies of none, enemies of none, so selling arms to Iran might disrupt its efforts to balance closer ties with Israel and the UAE, in particular, as tensions are heightened between these countries and Tehran right now and Saudi Arabia.”

“With the Iran nuclear deal still up in the air and the war in Yemen continuing to rage, Biden's approach to the Middle East is very similar to that of Trump. The deeper down, the substance, is not as different as one might have imagined. So, it's more one of style.”

“I don't think there's a broader Middle East policy right now. What there is, is managing the mess they inherited.”

“The potential intensification of heatwaves in the already harsh, hot and arid MENA [Middle East and North Africa] environment is expected to have direct negative impacts on human health, agriculture, the water and energy nexus, and many other socioeconomic sectors. Societal impacts may be relatively large … Moreover, the human population of the MENA region is projected to peak around the year 2065. Therefore, the threat to water supplies in the region with temperatures rising is very much serious.”

“Heat stress during summers will reach or exceed the thresholds of human survivability, at least in some parts of the region [Middle East and North Africa] and for the warmest months.”

“Days into their Presidency before launching a military operation in the Middle East: Biden: 37 days strikes #Syria, Trump: 9 days launches Op in #Yemen, Obama: 3 days strikes #Pakistan, Bush: 27 days strikes #Iraq. But tell me more about how we can turn a new page in the region?”

“We couldn’t allow the Palestinians to stand as a roadblock to a broader Middle East peace. So we went to our friends and partners and allies and we built political capital. And one way we built political capital in Israel was by moving the embassy to Jerusalem, one way we did it was by recognising the Golan Heights, as Israeli territory. These were facts that were never going to change on the ground. Jerusalem was never going to change being the capital of Israel. Israel was never going to give the Golan Heights back to Assad or any other regime in Syria. We did the same thing. We built political capital with Bahrain, with Morocco with the UAE by letting them know that we would stand with them, by getting out of the Iran nuclear deal which was a serious threat to the region.”

“Regrettably, despite goodwill on both sides, the parties remain far apart. The United States remains ready to mediate constructive discussions and urges both sides to negotiate based on the respective maritime claims both have previously deposited at the United Nations.”

“Biden is more flexible and rational, but I do not expect fundamental changes, though there may be an easing of pressure with respect to sanctions until Biden’s Middle East team is in place.”
