"One way or another, he wants Ukraine neutralized," Fiona Hill, a top Russia expert, told Insider. See all newslettersFor the second time this year, there are serious concerns that Russia is on the verge of invading Ukraine. The world is on edge, with leaders in Washington and beyond contemplating what Russian President Vladimir Putin will do next. "There is a major risk of Russian military activity in Ukraine in the next few months.

Global oil prices touched seven-year highs in late October as oil demand has rebounded nearly to pre-pandemic levels, faster than the pace of supply. In recent weeks, Biden and top aides have raised the issue with close allies including Japan, South Korea and India, as well as with China, the sources said. The White House declined to comment on the detailed content of specific conversations with other countries. "The surplus is already beginning in December," OPEC Secretary General Mohammad Barkindo said on Tuesday, when asked if he was sure there would be an excess in oil supply next year. Rising oil prices have been an increasingly concerning political problem for Biden, a Democrat who took office in January.

US President Joe Biden stressed "just simple, straightforward competition" with China. Chinese President Xi Jinping said the two sides must increase communication and cooperation. The U.S. president smiled broadly as the Chinese president appeared on a large screen in the conference room. Biden and Xi have not had a face-to-face meeting since Biden became president and the last time they spoke it was via telephone in September. The White House has declined to answer questions on whether the United States will send officials to the Beijing Winter Olympics in February.

Ex-Trump advisor Michael Flynn tried to pressure a top defense official to help overturn the election, a new book says. Flynn reportedly called Ezra Cohen about seizing ballots weeks after projections showed Biden had won the election. Flynn also suggested seizing voting machines and imposing martial law in the wake of the election. See all newslettersMichael Flynn, former national security advisor to President Donald Trump, called the Pentagon and tried to persuade a top defense official to help overturn the election, according to a new book by ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl. In the aftermath of the presidential election, Flynn was outspoken about the need for the military to get involved in the election — a potentially dangerous move tantamount to a coup.

REUTERS/Kacper PempelUNITED NATIONS, Nov 11 (Reuters) - Russia traded barbs with Western members of the U.N. Security Council on Thursday over a crisis on the border between Belarus and Poland, with Russia's deputy U.N. envoy suggesting his European colleagues have "masochist inclinations." Estonia, France, Ireland, Norway, the United States and Britain raised the migrant crisis during a closed-door meeting of the 15-member body. Belarus has warned the crisis could escalate into a military confrontation, while Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia said Belarus posed a serious threat to European security. When asked if Russia or Belarus were helping move the migrants to the Polish border, Polyanskiy said: "No, absolutely not." Russia is a council veto-power so can shield Belarus from any possible attempts to impose U.N. sanctions.

WASHINGTON — Family, former colleagues and friends will honor Colin Powell’s life during a funeral service held Friday at the Washington National Cathedral. Powell served as secretary of state under Bush and broke with his party when he endorsed Obama for president in 2008 and 2012. After rising through the military ranks, Powell became a four-star general and then chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under President George H.W. He had served as U.S. national security adviser and deputy national security adviser for President Ronald Reagan in the 1980s. Powell served twice in Vietnam — during the first tour, he was wounded in action and on the second tour, he received the Soldier's Medal for rescuing several men from a burning helicopter.

London (CNN Business) The White House has accused OPEC and its allies of putting the global economic recovery at risk by refusing to pump more oil. "Our view is that the global recovery should not be imperiled by a mismatch between supply and demand," a spokesperson for the US National Security Council said in a statement. "OPEC+ seems unwilling to use the capacity and power it has now at this critical moment of global recovery for countries around the world." Soaring oil prices are driving up gas prices and more broadly fueling inflation, hurting vulnerable households and dampening the global economic recovery at a crucial moment. The United States, Japan and India have all called on OPEC+ to open the taps wider to help bring down prices.

Still, economists are increasingly starting to wonder: As shortfalls of workers persist, has the labor market changed for good? The approval of vaccines for children aged five to 11 in the United States could mitigate some concerns about the virus that kept parents at home. "It may signal what lasting structural damage there is to the workforce from the pandemic," Brusuelas said. That sets up a geopolitical showdown that could spark more market volatility and prompt the United States to release crude from its strategic reserves, my CNN Business colleague Charles Riley reports. Coming next week: For the first time in nearly two years, the United States will welcome fully vaccinated visitors from all countries.

Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison presents his national statement as part of the World Leaders' Summit of the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland on November 1, 2021. Morrison said Macron's accusation of lying, which the prime minister denies, was a slur against Australia. Biden told Macron that the handling of the Australian submarine alliance was "clumsy" and "not done with a lot of grace." "I was under the impression that France had been informed long before that the (French) deal would not go through. I honest to God did not know you had not," Biden told Macron.

The United States had not met with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations at the presidential level since Biden's predecessor, Donald Trump, attended an ASEAN-U.S. meeting in Manila in 2017. In his opening remarks to the summit, Biden said the United States was committed to the central role of the 10-nation ASEAN in the region and ASEAN nations can expect him to personally show up in the region in future. "The relationship between the United States and ASEAN is vital, vital for the future of all one billion of our people," Biden said. On Wednesday, Biden will participate in the broader East Asia Summit, which brings together ASEAN and other nations in the Indo-Pacific region. While planning to provide a modest sum to promote trade with ASEAN, Biden has given no sign of any plan to return to a regional trade framework Trump withdrew from in 2017.

The U.S. embassy in Brunei told Reuters Biden will lead the U.S. delegation for the ASEAN-United States summit, part of a series of ASEAN leaders' meetings this week. The United States has not joined the meetings at the presidential level since Biden's predecessor, Donald Trump, attended an ASEAN-U.S. meeting in Manila in 2017. Analysts say Biden's meeting with the 10-nation bloc reflects his administration's efforts to engage allies and partners in a collective effort to push back against China. U.S. officials, however, have not made specific mention of China in the run-up to the meeting as they work to set up a virtual summit between Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping later this year. They expect Biden to focus on collaboration on Covid-19 vaccine distribution, climate, supply chains and infrastructure.

Justin Lane/Pool via REUTERS/File PhotoUNITED NATIONS, Oct 26 (Reuters) - U.N. chief Antonio Guterres assailed what he called "an epidemic of coup d'états" on Tuesday and urged the Security Council to act to effectively deter them as the 15-member body prepared to discuss the military takeover in Sudan. Sudan's top general Abdel Fattah al-Burhan on Tuesday defended the military takeover, saying he had ousted the government of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok to avoid civil war. The Security Council - which has the ability to impose sanctions or authorize military action - has been split on how to approach various conflicts, with the United States and other western council members pitted against Russia and China. "My appeal, obviously, is for - especially the big powers - to come together for the unity of the Security Council in order to make sure that there is effective deterrence in relation to this epidemic of coup d'états," Guterres said. The council has issued statements expressing concern about the situation in Myanmar and condemning the military takeover in Mali.

There are "no immediate plans" to tap into emergency reserves or limit energy exports outside the United States, the Energy Department told CNBC. Retail gas prices – averaging $3.38 per gallon on Oct. 25 – have risen roughly 50% in 2021, surpassing pre-pandemic levels. Prices at the pump are increasing as global oil prices surge 70% this year due in part to a rebound in demand from pandemic lows. Supply is also constrained, with U.S. production below pre-pandemic levels and OPEC and its allies keeping barrels off the global market. "There are limitations to what any president can do, as it relates to gas prices," press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters Friday.

The vetting procedures and the deliberations over the fate of the evacuees were described by nearly a dozen officials on condition of anonymity. Former President Donald J. Trump claimed to Fox News last month that there were “absolutely” terrorists and “very bad people” among the evacuees. This week, some House Republicans mounted fresh claims that the Biden administration is bringing tens of thousands of Afghan evacuees to the United States without screening them. Gen. Glen D. VanHerck, who leads the U.S. Northern Command, has told reporters that the crime rate among the evacuees has been lower than the American average. Many faced particular danger because they had worked for the United States during the conflict and were trying to get out with their families.

The Biden administration released several reports Thursday on climate change and national security, laying out in stark terms the ways in which the warming world is beginning to pose significant challenges to stability worldwide. The documents, issued by the departments of Homeland Security and Defense as well as the National Security Council and director of national intelligence, form the government’s most thorough assessment yet of these and other challenges, as well as how it will it will address them. The timing of the release seems intended to give President Biden something to demonstrate that his government is acting on climate change as he prepares to attend a major United Nations climate conference in Glasgow known as COP26. In recent weeks Mr. Biden has struggled to advance his stalled climate agenda in Congress. As a result, he risks having little progress to point to in Glasgow, where the administration had hoped to re-establish United States leadership on addressing warming.

Mr. Powell was put forward as a pre-emptive rejoinder to the strongest critiques of the nation and its rationale for going to war. But Mr. Powell put his reputation on the line for the administration and what was perceived to be in the national interest. Mr. Powell demonstrated how to move in rooms of power and how to manage the pressure that came with it. Mr. Powell left the administration; his loyalty met no reward. It’s not surprising that there is a through line that connects the former Republican Massachusetts Senator Ed Brooke, the former Democratic governor of Virginia Douglas Wilder, Mr. Powell and Barack Obama.
