Turkey extends mandate to send troops to Syria if needed| Reuters

ANKARA Turkey's parliament voted late on Thursday to extend by a year a mandate authorizing the deployment of troops to Syria and Iraq, weeks after it stepped up its role in the U.S.-led coalition fighting Islamic State. The NATO member opened its air bases to coalition fighter jets in July and has since taken part in joint strikes for the first time on the radical Sunni militant group in northern Syria, ending years of reluctance to take a front-line role. #Syria #markets #Turkey #Iraq #Business

Canadian government under fire in case of drowned Syrian toddler| Reuters

VANCOUVER Canada's Conservative government came under fire on Thursday after reports the family of a Syrian toddler whose body washed up on a Turkish beach had wanted to emigrate to Canada, rattling Prime Minister Stephen Harper's re-election bid. A photograph of the tiny body of 3-year-old Aylan Kurdi face down in the sand at the Aegean resort of Bodrum swept social media on Wednesday and appeared prominently on front pages on Thursday, spawning sympathy and outrage at the perceived inaction of developed nations in helping refugees. The boy's aunt, Vancouver resident Tima Kurdi, said she had hoped to bring her brother - the father of Aylan - and his family to Canada, but had first tried to sponsor another brother, currently in Germany, an application that was rejected #Syria #Europe #markets #Italy #Turkey #India

ISLAMABAD Pakistan's foreign policy chief will meet Afghan leaders on Friday in an effort to ease tensions over attacks by militants who Afghanistan says are based in Pakistan. Sartaj Aziz, foreign affairs adviser to Pakistan's prime minister, will be in the Afghan capital Kabul for a regional economic conference but will hold other meetings on the sidelines, the foreign ministry said Thursday. A senior Pakistani official told reporters that Aziz would urge Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to end what Islamabad views as inflammatory rhetoric blaming Pakistan for a recent spate of attacks linked to Taliban insurgents and the militant Haqqani network #Middle East #markets #Entertainment #Foreign policy #India
