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.

WASHINGTON — A long-delayed bill to provide financial support to U.S. government personnel believed to be suffering from Havana Syndrome is headed to President Joe Biden’s desk after the House passed it Tuesday. NBC News reported that diplomats affected by Havana Syndrome voiced frustration over continuing challenges in getting medical care and benefits in a tense hourlong conversation with Secretary of State Antony Blinken this month. The first incidents of the syndrome “medically confirmed” by the U.S. government were in Havana in 2016 and 2017. Many U.S. workers thought to be suffering from Havana Syndrome reported hearing a loud sound and feeling pressure in their heads. For years, those who have come forward reporting potential Havana Syndrome have complained about immense bureaucratic hurdles to getting proper medical care.

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?

Russia has seen five key rate hikes this year as the central bank tries to curb price growth. The additional 900 billion roubles agreed for the spending plan will be used to buy foreign equipment and therefore should have no impact on monetary policy, Siluanov said. To make the budgetary spending more balanced, Russia will already distribute 900 billion roubles, initially set for 2023-24, this year, Siluanov said, including by providing the development corporation VEB with 190 billion roubles. The central bank has said it may continue further rate hikes at its next board meetings. While warning of the risks the rate hikes may pose, the economy ministry raised this year's GDP growth forecast to 4.2% from a July estimate of 3.8%.

LONDON — The European Court of Human Rights found on Tuesday that Russia was responsible for the assassination of ex-KGB officer Alexander Litvinenko, who died an agonizing death in 2006 after being poisoned in London with a rare radioactive substance. Litvinenko, a defector who had become a vocal critic of the Kremlin, died three weeks after drinking green tea laced with polonium-210 at a plush London hotel. Download the NBC News app for breaking news and politicsBritain has long blamed the attack on Moscow, and the European court in Strasbourg, France, agreed. "Mr. Litvinenko’s assassination was imputable to Russia," its statement said. A British inquiry concluded in 2016 that Putin had probably approved a Russian intelligence operation to murder Litvinenko.

FILE PHOTO: A worker in a protective suit sweeps the floor inside the Envision battery manufacturing plant at Nissan's Sunderland factory, Britain, July 1, 2021. REUTERS/Phil NobleLONDON (Reuters) - A record share of British manufacturers reported rising new orders this month but global supply chain problems and labour shortages held back growth in output, a survey showed on Tuesday. Still, the picture was weaker for export orders - which grew at their fastest since March 2019 - and the survey’s gauge of output growth fell to its lowest level since April. “Today’s survey highlights how amidst a variety of supply challenges, companies are beginning to struggle to meet high demand,” CBI deputy chief economist Anna Leach said. The record prices have strained the British energy sector, destroying the business model of smaller energy traders and sending shockwaves through the chemical and fertiliser markets, leading to a shortage of carbon dioxide used in food processing.

In October 2016, Benton received a $100,000 wire transfer from the unnamed Russian national, the indictment states, promising him that he would get to "meet a celebrity" at a fundraiser in Philadelphia on September 22, 2016. The Russian national attended the fundraiser, according to the indictment, his travel to the United States facilitated by an alleged co-conspirator, Roy Douglas Wead, a conservative author.

Angela Weiss | AFP | Getty ImagesMinisters from Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia will not meet with Iran at the United Nations this week to discuss a return to nuclear deal talks, European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell told reporters on Monday. 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. It's not in the agenda," said Borrell, who acts as coordinator for the nuclear deal — known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). 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/Larry DowningWASHINGTON, Sept 20 (Reuters) - A CIA officer who was traveling with agency director William Burns to India this month reported symptoms consistent with Havana syndrome, CNN and the New York Times reported on Monday. Some 200 U.S. officials and family members have been sickened by Havana syndrome, a mysterious set of ailments that include migraines, nausea, memory lapses and dizziness. A CIA spokesperson said in a statement to Reuters the agency does not comment on specific incidents or officers. Last month, Vice President Kamala Harris delayed her arrival to Hanoi for three hours after the U.S. embassy there said someone had reported a health incident consistent with Havana syndrome. Burns has said there is a "very strong possibility" that the syndrome is intentionally caused and that Russia could be responsible.

REUTERS/Henry Nicholls/File PhotoLONDON, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Britain is considering state loans for energy companies that take on customers from firms which go bust due to soaring wholesale natural gas prices, Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng said on Tuesday. As economies reopen after COVID-19 lockdowns, wholesale natural gas prices in Europe have soared this year, pushed up by high demand for liquefied natural gas in Asia, nuclear maintenance and lower than usual supplies from Russia. Britain's biggest energy companies have asked the government for support to help cover the cost of taking on customers from firms that have gone bust due to soaring wholesale gas prices. Benchmark European gas prices have risen by more than 250% since January due to low storage stocks, high European Union carbon prices, soaring demand in Asia, lower gas supplies from Russia, low renewable output and nuclear maintenance outages. "Every year between 5 and 8 companies exit the market and I don't want to prop up failing companies, I don't want there to be a reward for failure."

Legal experts see a lack of evidence — and other problems — with a Trump-era special prosecutor's latest case. But while the indictment marked the first overt sign of activity in months from Durham, several legal experts weren't impressed. In interviews, legal experts described Durham's case against Sussmann as unusually — even remarkably — thin.

MOSCOW, Sept 21 (Reuters) - The Kremlin on Tuesday rejected as "unsubstantiated" a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights that found Russia was responsible for the 2006 killing of ex-KGB officer Alexander Litvinenko. "The ECHR hardly has the authority or technological capacity to possess information on the matter. There are still no results from this investigation and making such claims is at the very least unsubstantiated," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

The European Court of Human Rights ruled on Tuesday that Russia was responsible for the 2006 killing of Alexander V. Litvinenko, who was poisoned with a deadly toxin at a London hotel. The ruling concluded that the assassins were acting as “agents of the Russian state,” bolstering a separate inquiry by Britain that found “strong circumstantial evidence” that President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and his spy chief at the time, Nikolai Patrushev, had approved an operation to kill Mr. Litvinenko, using a rare isotope, polonium 210. Mr. Litvinenko was a former colonel in the F.S.B., the domestic successor to the Soviet-era K.G.B., who fled Russia via Georgia and Turkey in 2000 to seek asylum in Britain, where he became a whistle-blower and a vitriolic critic of Mr. Putin. He died in November 2006, weeks after drinking green tea laced with polonium 210 at London’s Millennium Hotel.

(CNN) Russia was responsible for killing Alexander Litvinenko, a former Russian agent turned Kremlin critic who died in London by polonium poisoning in 2006, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) said Tuesday. The ruling found that "Russia was responsible for assassination of Aleksandr Litvinenko in the UK." "The Court found in particular that there was a strong prima facie case that, in poisoning Mr Litvinenko, Mr Lugovoi and Mr Kovtun had been acting as agents of the Russian State," it said, referring to the names of two Russian agents accused of killing Litvinenko. The court also ruled that Russian authorities "had not carried out an effective domestic investigation capable of leading to the establishment of the facts and, where appropriate, the identification and punishment of those responsible for the murder."
