EU's elder statesmen to Britain: Don't leave us now | Reuters

BRUSSELS Elder statesmen who built and shaped the European Union have a clear message for Britain as it prepares for a referendum on whether to stay in the bloc: "We love you. Don't leave us now." Valery Giscard d'Estaing, father of the European Monetary System that was the forerunner of the euro single currency, said that despite its long-standing semi-detached approach to Europe, keeping Britain in was well worth the trouble. "I strongly hope they stay," the former French president, who turned 90 on Feb. #United States #India #Technology #France #Latin America

Russia warns of new Cold War as east Ukraine violence surges | Reuters

MUNICH Violence in eastern Ukraine is intensifying and Russian-backed rebels have moved heavy weaponry back to the front line, international monitors warned on Saturday as Moscow responded by accusing the West of dragging the world back 50 years. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev described East-West relations as having "fallen into a new Cold War" and said NATO was "hostile and closed" towards Russia, in the latest sign that peace efforts have made scant progress almost two years since Moscow annexed Crimea. "I sometimes wonder - are we in 2016 or 1962?," Medvedev asked in a speech to the Munich Security Conference. #United States #India #France #markets #crisis #Ukraine

HAVANA Pope Francis and Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill embraced and kissed on Friday in a historic meeting, uniting to issue a global appeal for the protection of Christians under assault in the Middle East. Nearly 1,000 years after the Eastern and Western branches of Christianity split apart, the meeting at an airport terminal in Cuba was the first ever between a Roman Catholic pope and a Russian Orthodox patriarch. "In many countries of the Middle East and North Africa whole families, villages and cities of our brothers and sisters in Christ are being completely exterminated," they said in a joint declaration in apparent reference to violence by militant groups such as Islamic State. #India #Syria #Islam #France #Middle East #Italy #Mexico

Russia keeps bombing despite Syria truce; Assad vows to fight on | Reuters

MUNICH/AMMAN Major powers agreed on Friday to a pause in combat in Syria, but Russia pressed on with its relentless bombing in support of its ally President Bashar al-Assad, who vowed to fight on until he regains full control of the country. Although billed as a potential breakthrough, the "cessation of hostilities" agreement does not take effect for a week, at a time when Assad's government is poised to win its biggest victory of the war with the backing of Russian air power. If implemented, the deal hammered out at five hours of late night talks in Munich would allow humanitarian aid to reach besieged towns #Syria #Islam #France #Turkey #crisis
