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.

REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Democrats introduced legislation on Tuesday seeking to pull back powers from the presidency, part of an effort by lawmakers to rein in the White House after what Democrats saw as overreach during the administration of former Republican President Donald Trump. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Representative Adam Schiff planned to introduced the bill at a news conference. During his presidency, Trump fired a series of inspectors general - watchdogs tasked with fighting corruption at federal agencies. Democrats hold only a slim majority of House seats, and House Republicans stand firmly behind Trump. Aides to House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Diplomats were tentatively planning for a ministerial meeting of the parties to the 2015 nuclear deal on Wednesday on the sidelines of the annual U.N. gathering of world leaders.

Trump reimposed harsh sanctions on Iran, which then started breaching curbs on its nuclear program. The Vienna talks were adjourned in June after hardliner Ebrahim Raisi was elected Iran's president and took office in August.

REUTERS/Didor SadulloevDUBAI, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Iran wants a resumption of nuclear talks with world powers to lead to the removal of U.S. sanctions, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi told the annual U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday in a pre-recorded address. Hardline cleric Raisi, who is under personal U.S. sanctions over allegations of human rights abuses in his past as a judge, said the U.S. sanctions, imposed by former U.S. President Donald Trump in 2018, "were crimes against humanity during the coronavirus pandemic". Indirect talks between Iran and the United States to revive the 2015 nuclear pact stopped two days after Raisi was elected as Iran's president in June.

WASHINGTON—The Biden administration is easing a series of Covid-19 travel bans and will require foreign nationals seeking to fly to the U.S. to show proof of vaccination under new rules aimed in part at assuaging mounting frustration among European allies. The new restrictions would replace a series of travel bans imposed during the Trump administration that limit travel into the U.S. from Europe, China, Iran and Brazil, and were later expanded to include South Africa and India. President Biden has been under pressure from European politicians and major airlines to lift the restrictions.

Oil tanks are seen at an oil warehouse at Yangshan port in Shanghai, China March 14, 2018. Saudi oil arrivals surged 53% from a year earlier to 8.06 million tonnes, or 1.96 million barrels per day (bpd), data from the General Administration of Customs showed on Monday. That compares with 1.58 million bpd in July and 1.24 million bpd in August last year. read moreChina's crude oil imports from Russia stood at 6.53 million tonnes in August, or 1.59 million bpd, flat versus 1.56 million bpd in July. The big gap behind Saudi volumes was due to Beijing's decision to slash crude oil import quotas to its independent refiners, who favour Russia's ESPO blend.

The Taliban flags are seen on a street in Kabul, Afghanistan, September 16, 2021. More than a month after the Islamist militants took control following a chaotic Western withdrawal from Kabul, EU governments are also limiting their presence to the Qatari capital, Doha, where the Taliban have a representation. "The Taliban will have to make a choice between money or isolation, but we have very little expectations of them," an EU diplomat said. The EU expects its personnel to be based in Doha and make only brief visits to Kabul for meetings. One diplomat said EU countries would need to provide their own security or hire contractors, rather than rely on any Western security alliance.

EU joins outcry over execution of nine men by Yemen's Houthis
  + stars: | 2021-09-20 | by ( ) www.reuters.com   time to read: +2 min
A Houthi court found the nine men, including one who was a minor when he was arrested, guilty of spying and sharing sensitive information with the Saudi-led coalition. In a statement condemning the executions, an EU spokesperson said there had also been reports of irregularities in the judicial process and allegations of mistreatment. The U.S. embassy in Yemen condemned what it called "a sham trial following years of torture and abuse" by the Houthis. Britain said the executions demonstrated "indifference to human dignity & blatant disregard for fair trial & due process".

Live Covid Live Updates: Biden Administration to Lift Restrictions on Vaccinated International Travelers in November An F.D.A. The Biden administration will lift restrictions on fully vaccinated international travelers in November. Fully vaccinated travelers will also need to show proof of a negative test for the coronavirus within three days before coming to the United States, Mr. Zients said. Authorities will then follow up with the travelers after arrival to ask whether they are experiencing symptoms of the virus. The European Union and Britain both allowed fully vaccinated people from the United States to travel without quarantining and officials there were annoyed when the United States did not reciprocate.

The digital scourge known as ransomware — in which hackers shut down electronic systems until a ransom is paid — is worse than ever. To combat the ransomware problem, the Biden administration has so far taken a two-prong approach: concerted diplomacy with nations harboring cybercriminals and expanded defensive capabilities at home. Despite repeated requests from the Biden administration, there is no evidence that President Vladimir Putin of Russia has taken any action to put pressure on ransomware criminals operating within Russian borders. America has significantly less diplomatic leverage over North Korea and Iran than it does over Russia. Both North Korea and Iran are already subject to extensive U.S. sanctions, so gently asking, or even sternly insisting, that they stop ransomware groups simply won’t work.

The Biden administration will lift travel restrictions starting in November for foreigners who are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus, reopening the country to thousands of people, including those who have been separated from family in the United States during the pandemic, and easing a major source of tension with Europe. The halt to the 18-month ban on travel from 33 countries, including members of the European Union, China, Iran, South Africa, Brazil and India, will also rejuvenate a U.S. tourism industry that was left crippled by the pandemic. The industry suffered a $500 billion loss in travel expenditures in 2020, including a 79 percent decease in spending from international travel, according to the U.S. Travel Association, a trade group that promotes travel to and within the United States. In New York City alone, the absence of tourists wiped out 89,000 jobs in the tourism industry and resulted in a loss of more than $60 billion in revenue, the state comptroller found. “This is a major turning point in the management of the virus and will accelerate the recovery of the millions of travel-related jobs that have been lost due to international travel restrictions,” said Roger Dow, the president of the U.S. Travel Association.
