Official Khamenei Website/Handout via REUTERSIn retaliation for the killing last week of Iran’s top nuclear scientist, which Tehran has blamed on Israel, Iran’s hardline-dominated parliament on Tuesday approved the bill with a strong majority that will harden Iran’s nuclear stance. In reaction to U.S. President Donald Trump’s “maximum pressure” policy on Tehran, Iran has gradually reduced its compliance with the deal. Biden has said he would return to the pact and would lift sanctions if Tehran returned to “strict compliance with the nuclear deal”. Under the new law, the government should resume uranium enrichment to 20% and install advanced centrifuges at its Natanz and Fordow nuclear facilities.

Liberty Steel to start due diligence on Thyssenkrupp steel business

REUTERS/Michaela Rehle/File PhotoLONDON (Reuters) - Liberty Steel, which last month announced a non-binding indicative offer for Thyssenkrupp Steel Europe, will soon start looking into its financial records, it said on Wednesday. “Liberty Steel will shortly begin a detailed due diligence and thus gain insight into key business data of Thyssenkrupp’s steel business,” Liberty said in a statement. Last week, sources told Reuters that Thyssenkrupp was likely to give Britain’s Liberty Steel, headed by metals tycoon Sanjeev Gupta, access to the books of its steel unit. Gupta’s hand has been strengthened due to consolidation talks between Sweden’s SSAB and Tata Steel that could result in a deal and potentially leave Liberty Steel as the sole bidder for Thyssenkrupp Steel Europe. Thyssenkrupp, which confirmed it had agreed to open its books to Liberty, has said it aims to make a decision on whether to sell or keep its steel unit by March.

LONDON (Reuters) - One of the biggest risks to the bullish equity market consensus for next year is that investors are all leaning the same way and market overcrowding could stall the rally early on, NN Investment Partners’ Chief Investment Officer said. FILE PHOTO: The Charging Bull or Wall Street Bull is pictured in the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York, U.S., January 16, 2019. “We are strong believers in the evolution of markets and behaviour of our peers is something we monitor very closely,” he said. Disappointment on either U.S. or European fiscal policy was another potential risk to a market that has already priced in considerable expectations. Assumptions a new U.S. administration will immediately ease tensions with China may also be wide of the mark, he said.

ZURICH (Reuters Breakingviews) - Enrico Cuccia founded Mediobanca after World War Two as a bulwark for Italian capitalism against the confiscatory hands of an increasingly meddlesome government. A logo of Mediobanca is pictured at Mediobanca headquarters in Milan, Italy, November 12, 2019. Now that Mustier has gone, investors have concluded UniCredit will inevitably do Rome’s bidding and decimated its stock price. Mediobanca would likely need shareholder approval to issue a flood of new stock to UniCredit shareholders. For UniCredit, though, Mediobanca could be a kind of white knight, freeing the board from a shotgun marriage, brokered by Rome, with Monte Paschi and its concomitant black hole of legal liabilities and non-performing loans.

Locals, many crying and holding hands, gathered at the city’s landmark Roman gate, Porta Nigra, to place floral tributes, candles and hand-written messages. The authorities have said there is no indication the man, overpowered by police, had a political or religious motive. “Trier is mourning, Trier is suffering,” said mayor Wolfram Leibe, wiping a tear from his eye.

Austria allows Christmas skiing, effectively for locals only

VIENNA (Reuters) - Austria on Wednesday chose a middle way in its standoff with neighbouring countries on whether skiing over Christmas is safe, by letting resorts reopen on Christmas Eve but making ski holidays virtually impossible. Austria's Chancellor Sebastian Kurz speaks during a news conference, as the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues, in Vienna, Austria December 2, 2020. Despite that, Italy has said it will keep resorts shut over the Christmas and New Year holidays for fear of infections accelerating again. It called for a European agreement on closures backed by Germany, which has few resorts but many skiers who flock to foreign resorts, but Austria opposed it. As of Monday, shops, museums and libraries in Austria will be allowed to reopen and primary schools will return to in-person learning.

REUTERS/Matthias Rietschel/File PhotoFRANKFURT (Reuters) - The auto industry faces a new wave of consolidation as cars become electric, connected and add highly automated driving functions, Alexander Hitzinger, head of Volkswagen’s Project Artemis said on Wednesday. We will see emerging a smaller number of very large players who will drive this transformation,” Hitzinger told the FT’s Future of the Car summit. “Cars are so complex that the traditional concept where you outsource to tier one manufacturers does not work any more,” Hitzinger explained in a Webcast. The investment sums and the complexity of the technology favours larger players since falling sales, caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, is making it harder for smaller companies to stem the investments needed to develop cutting edge cars, he said.

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union criticised Britain’s rapid approval of Pfizer and BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine on Wednesday, saying its own procedure was more thorough, after Britain became the first western country to endorse a COVID-19 shot. FILE PHOTO: A dose of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccination of BioNTech and Pfizer is pictured in this undated handout photo, as Britain became the first western country to approve a COVID-19 vaccine, in Mainz, Germany. Pfizer UK Country Manager Ben Osborn said, “We have provided complete data packages, the unblinded data, to both regulators. Asked about the emergency procedure used by Britain, he said EU countries had opted for a more thorough procedure to boost confidence in vaccines. Under EU rules, the Pfizer vaccine must be authorised by the EMA, but EU countries can use an emergency procedure that allows them to distribute a vaccine at home for temporary use.

European governments took a step closer to shutting down the Christmas ski season in the Alps, in an attempt to prevent vacationers from reigniting the continent’s Covid-19 pandemic like last summer. The decision by Austria, Europe’s biggest destination for international ski tourism, follows a diplomatic clash over whether it is safe to let people ski the Alps. Berlin, Rome and Paris have pressured Austria to join a continentwide crackdown on ski trips. Alpine tourism was a major spreader of coronavirus infections in early 2020. After Europe slowed infections to a trickle with stringent lockdowns this spring, a return to mass travel for summer vacations contributed greatly to a resurgence in coronavirus cases.

MAINZ, Germany—The story of the first Covid-19 vaccine to be authorized in the West began 30 years ago in rural Germany when two young physicians, the children of Turkish migrants and freshly in love, pledged to invent a new treatment for cancer. It has taken 10 months for Germany’s BioNTech SE and its U.S. partner, Pfizer Inc., to develop the vaccine that was granted emergency-use authorization in the U.K. on Wednesday—beating the previous Western record for a vaccine by more than three years.

They forecast the S&P 500 index would rise to 4,000 points in 2021. That could simultaneously mean vacant former restaurant spaces, unemployed restaurant workers, and restaurant entrepreneurs bankrupted and in no position to start over. Mr. Adeyemo would be part of a history-making duo at Treasury: He would be the first Black deputy at the Treasury, serving with the first female secretary, Janet L. Yellen. The soft-spoken and deliberate Mr. Adeyemo’s approach will provide a stark contrast to the Trump administration’s combative tone in economic diplomacy. That multilateral approach to dealing with China could be a complication for Mr. Adeyemo at his confirmation hearing, as Republicans have become accustomed to Mr. Trump’s confrontational stance.

“Whether we like it or not, the world simply does not organize itself,” Mr. Blinken has said. After the United States announced that it was leaving the Paris climate agreement, not a single other signatory followed it out the door. This summer, after the Trump administration threatened to leave the World Health Organization, France and Germany promised to increase their contributions. For 20 years, Gallup has been asking Americans whether the United States should play “the leading role,” a “major role,” a “minor role” or “no role at all” in world affairs. It’s not ordinary Americans who believe the United States must “sit at the head of the table,” as Mr. Biden said last week.

British government criticized for nationalist vaccine messagingThe British government may have been the world's first to formally approve a Covid-19 vaccine Wednesday, but it has also been heavily criticized for attempting to use that milestone for nationalistic ends. Minutes after the U.K. announced it had approved the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, Business Secretary Alok Sharma tweeted, "In years to come, we will remember this moment as the day the U.K. led humanity's charge against this disease." Plenty of people pointed out that the vaccine was developed in Germany by BioNTech, a company led by the children of Turkish immigrants, before being scrutinized in mass trials by the U.S. pharma giant Pfizer and then manufactured in Belgium. In spite of the German company BioNTech having made a crucial contribution, this is European and transatlantic." Health Secretary Matt Hancock was among those to suggest Brexit had helped the U.K.'s rapid vaccine response.
