Migration key to new relationship, Cameron tells EU | Reuters

BRUSSELS Outgoing Prime Minister David Cameron told European Union leaders on Tuesday that Britain's future relations with the bloc it voted last week to leave would depend on the EU's willingness to allow it to curb free movement of workers. Cameron, who resigned after losing a referendum on remaining in the EU last week, told what may be his last summit of the 28-nation bloc he hoped the United Kingdom would maintain as close as possible an economic and political relationship with them #Economy #India #Middle East #Europe #Argentina #United Kingdom #Foreign policy

Exclusive: U.S. to downgrade Myanmar in annual human trafficking report - sources | Reuters

WASHINGTON/YANGON The United States has decided to place Myanmar on its global list of worst offenders in human trafficking, officials said, a move aimed at prodding the country’s new democratically elected government and its still-powerful military to do more to curb the use of child soldiers and forced labour. The reprimand of Myanmar comes despite U.S. efforts to court the strategically important country to help counteract China’s rise in the region and build a Southeast Asian bulwark against Beijing’s territorial assertiveness in the South China Sea. #Economy #science #markets #Crime #United Kingdom #Foreign policy #civil rights

Israel, Turkey restore ties in deal spurred by energy prospects | Reuters

ANKARA/JERUSALEM Israel and Turkey announced on Monday they would normalise ties after a six-year rupture, a rare rapprochement in the divided Middle East driven by the prospect of lucrative Mediterranean gas deals as well as mutual fears over growing security risks. Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said the two countries would exchange ambassadors as soon as possible. The mending in relations between the once-firm allies after years of negotiations raises the prospect of eventual cooperation to exploit natural gas reserves worth hundreds of billions of dollars under the eastern Mediterranean, officials have said #India #science #Europe #Israel #Turkey #Entertainment #Foreign policy
