gives the pair an opportunity — and incentive — to work toward common ground as Johnson is eager for trade agreements. Johnson, until recently, was so unwaveringly close to Trump that it would seem hard for this not to color his relations with Biden. Back in 2019, after Johnson's Conservative Party won a majority in Parliament, Biden called the new British prime minister a "physical and emotional clone" of Trump. So Biden should be cultivating his relationship with Macron as carefully as the one with Johnson. These relationships across the ocean require constant reassurance, particularly in the wake of the four years of the Trump administration.

Tokyo (CNN) Japan will start releasing more than 1 million metric tons of treated radioactive water from its destroyed Fukushima nuclear plant into the ocean in two years, the government said Tuesday -- a plan that faces opposition at home and has raised "grave concern" in neighboring countries. Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga said dealing with the treated water is "an unavoidable issue" in order to decommission the nuclear plant. In 2011, a powerful earthquake and tsunami cut off power supply and cooling systems for the Fukushima plant. Treated waterAmid safety concerns, the Japanese government has stressed that "water stored in tanks will not be discharged as it is." IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi told CNN there is "no harm" in releasing treated water into the sea.

Many question how the U.S. can ever again lecture other countries about democratic values or how it can tell other countries that they aren't internally stable enough to have nuclear weapons. "This is their democracy and human rights, this is their election scandal, these are their values. Plenty of people have pointed out that many of the demonstrators — in the former Soviet republics and Hong Kong — were advocating for more democratic rights. "Our system has its own problems, but this system for China works for China for the past 45 years," he said of the one-party state.

REUTERS/Charles Platiau/PoolOfficials say he has mild symptoms and continues to work at his official residence at Versailles, just outside Paris. Macron does physical exercise and appears to be in robust health, said François Patriat, a member of the French Senate and a Macron ally who meets the president regularly. Macron, who became president in 2017, still runs and plays tennis when he can, Patriat said. A specialist in emergency care, Perrochon became the presidential doctor in 2014, a source close to the French military said. Battistoni said doctors usually treat mild COVID-19 symptoms by trying to lower any fever and ensuring the patient is well hydrated.

Rights defenders have for years called out Egypt’s human rights record, but say the scale of oppression under el-Sissi is unprecedented. “If this crackdown goes on you could see the extinction of the Egyptian human rights movement soon,” he said, speaking before their release. Amr Magdi, a researcher focusing on Egypt at Human Rights Watch, said military assistance and arms sales should be conditioned on the concrete improvement of human rights in Egypt, including stopping the attacks on independent groups. Washington should also publicly call out and condemn human rights violations in Egypt, he said. But he said Human Rights Watch was also not holding its breath that there would be a radical change overnight when Biden is sworn into office.
