WASHINGTON — The House passed legislation Tuesday that would fund the government through Dec. 3 and extend the debt limit until after the 2022 elections. House Republican leaders pressured their members to oppose the bill. Pelosi said the debt limit "is about paying bills already incurred." After all, they control the White House, the House of Representatives and the Senate," he said. Democrats, however, noted that there was bipartisan support for raising the debt limit during the Trump administration.

The Taliban's foreign minister has asked for the regime's envoy to speak at the UN General Assembly. He's contesting Afghanistan's seat, which has been given to the ambassador representing the former government. When the Taliban previously ruled Afghanistan, they were not given a seat by the UN. Both parties are jockeying to speak during Afghanistan's slated spot as the final speech of September 27, the last day of this year's General Assembly. Officials will now have to decide whether to accept the Taliban's request, or let Isaczai continue as Afghanistan's ambassador under UN protocol.

Founded eight years ago as nationalist free-market protest party against the Greek bailout and the euro, the AfD has sharply shifted to the right. The party seized on Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to welcome over a million migrants to Germany in 2015 and 2016, actively fanning fears of Islamization and migrant crime. Its noisy nationalism and anti-immigrant stance were what first catapulted it into Parliament and instantly turned it into Germany’s main opposition party. The AfD has tried to jump on the chaos in Afghanistan to fan fears of a new migrant crisis. At a recent election rally north of Frankfurt, Mr. Chrupalla demanded that lawmakers “abolish” the constitutional right to asylum.

Khatibzadeh spoke as Iran's new foreign minister, Hossein Amirabdollahian, was in New York for the annual U.N. General Assembly, where he was expected to discuss reviving the nuclear deal with other governments. Iran has refused to meet with U.S. negotiators in the nuclear talks; Washington and Tehran must pass messages through European intermediaries, instead. All parties must stay true to the nuclear deal," Raisi said in a recorded speech by video. The monitoring regime was introduced as part of the 2015 nuclear deal. The U.S. will discuss how to proceed with Iran in talks with European allies and other world powers in New York on Wednesday.

From 2001 through April, about 66,000 Afghan military and police members were killed in Afghanistan, alongside 2,448 U.S. service members. The abrupt U.S. exit from Afghanistan likely forced the Afghan military to fight under unfamiliar conditions, ultimately leading to collapse — and the humanitarian catastrophe we are now witnessing. Our military allies in both countries simply do not know how to fight effectively on more conventional battlefields without U.S. support. If we are willing to maintain huge troop numbers to support our allies in Europe and East Asia, then why not even a small footprint in the Middle East?

The speech will be Biden’s first as president at the meeting, which will look much different from past gatherings with many world leaders opting to deliver their remarks virtually. “America is back,” Biden said during a meeting with the U.N. secretary general Monday. Among the challenges Biden plans to address are the Covid pandemic, climate change, trade and economics, investments in clean infrastructure, counterterrorism, and “vigorous competition with great powers, but not a new Cold War,” the official said. This year’s gathering of world leaders will be largely scaled down because of the pandemic. The UN has said that 83 leaders will make their remarks in person with the rest of the global leaders’ making pre-recorded remarks.

NEW YORK—The Taliban are seeking to participate in the United Nations annual gathering as part of the Afghan militant group’s effort to win international recognition, after its military victory toppled Afghanistan’s U.S.-backed government. The office of U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres received a letter from Taliban foreign minister Amir Khan Muttaqi on Monday asking to participate in the U.N. General Assembly, according to the U.N. spokesman Stéphane Dujarric. Meanwhile, the group said it had nominated Suhail Shaheen, a Taliban spokesman in its Qatar office, as its U.N. ambassador, Mr. Dujarric said.

REUTERS/Tom BrennerNEW YORK/LONDON, Sept 21 (Reuters) - British prime minister Boris Johnson once worried that his friendliness with Donald Trump would leave him out in the cold when Democrat Joe Biden took over the White House. A submarine deal the United States and Britain recently announced with Australia came at France's expense, sparking France to withdraw its ambassadors to the United States and Australia and cancel a defense meeting with Britain.

The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI), India's top anti-smuggling agency, seized two containers at western Gujarat's Mundra Port on Sept. 15 after receiving intelligence they contained narcotics, the official said. The containers had been imported by a firm in the southern coastal city of Vijayawada, the official added. The containers had been declared as containing semi-processed talc stones from Afghanistan and had been shipped from Bandar Abbas Port in Iran to Gujarat Mundra port, the Gujarat official said, adding that forensic tests confirmed the presence of heroin. More than 2,988 kg of heroin was recovered in one of India's biggest such hauls to date.

WANA (West Asia News Agency) via REUTERSSept 21 (Reuters) - Afghanistan's Taliban rulers announced several senior appointments on Tuesday, naming two veteran battlefield commanders from the movement's southern heartlands as deputies in important ministries. Main Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said Mullah Abdul Qayyum Zakir will be deputy defence minister, while Sadr Ibrahim was named deputy minister for the interior. The two were identified in U.N. reports as being among battlefield commanders loyal to the former Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour who were pressing the leadership to step up the war against the Western-backed government. Zakir, a former detainee in the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, was a close associate of late Taliban founder Mullah Omar. Sadr, a former head of the Taliban military commission from the southern province of Helmand, will be deputy to Sirajuddin Haqqani, whose family comes from the eastern borderlands with Pakistan.

Sept 21 (Reuters) - The Taliban administration in Afghanistan is working towards reopening high school education for girls, who were left out of a recent return to school for boys and younger girls, although a Taliban spokesman speaking on Tuesday gave no time frame for action. The Taliban say they have changed since their 1996-2001 rule, when they barred women from leaving home without a male relative and shuttered schools for girls, but they stirred scepticism when they said last week that they would open schools for high school-aged boys but not girls. Younger girls in primary schools have already resumed studies in segregated classes. Mujahid said at the briefing that "work is ongoing" on barriers to women's ability to work, without providing details.

REUTERS/Larry DowningSept 21 (Reuters) - Afghanistan's Taliban rulers said on Tuesday there was no evidence of Islamic State or al Qaeda militants being in the country, days after Islamic State claimed responsibility for bomb attacks in the eastern city of Jalalabad. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid rejected accusations that al Qaeda maintained a presence in Afghanistan and repeated pledges that there would be no attacks on third countries from Afghanistan from militant movements. "We do not see anyone in Afghanistan who has anything to do with al Qaeda," he told a news conference in Kabul. The Taliban were ousted from power by U.S.-led forces in 2001 for refusing to hand over al Qaeda leaders responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks. The Afghan affiliate of Islamic State, known as Islamic State Khorasan (ISIS-K), after an old name for the region, first appeared in eastern Afghanistan in 2014 and later made inroads into other areas, particularly the north.

As we welcome Afghan refugees, fear-mongering language instead of policy debate only causes harm. When I left the church, my phone began buzzing: A friend was asking about news reports of police and National Guard from red states being sent to the Texas border. After meeting with El Paso community members after citizens of his state were slaughtered in 2019, Abbott issued a rare admission of guilt. The El Paso shooter was himself directly inspired by the Christchurch, New Zealand terrorist, who shot 51 predominantly Muslim people to death in two mosques. Likewise, when it comes to the border, politicians like Abbott have a right to argue in favor of decreased immigration and increased border enforcement.

LONDON, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Britain on Tuesday apologised for a data breach revealing details of people in Afghanistan seeking relocation to Britain after the Taliban retook control of the country when foreign troops withdrew earlier this year. Wallace said an email from Britain's Afghan Relocations Assistance Policy - the scheme used to help interpreters and others who had worked for Britain - had compromised more than 250 recipients by copying, rather than blind-copying their email addresses. "I apologise to those Afghans affected by this data breach and with whom we are now working ... to provide security advice," defence minister Ben Wallace told parliament. Wallace said those concerned had been advised to change their email address, and intelligence agencies were assessing risks to their safety.

For years, US troops have deployed around the world to train and advise foreign forces. These train-and-equip programs start with lofty goals, but they often fail and have unintended consequences. Robert Moore is a public policy advisor for Defense Priorities and former Capitol Hill staffer. But this is the first time such forces have initiated a coup against the very government that was hosting US trainers while the trainers were there. American forces had no authority or business interfering, and immediately retreated to the US embassy with no harm reported.
