WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A group representing the U.S. travel industry on Friday said it opposes making quarantines mandatory for international air passengers returning to the United States. REUTERS/Kevin Mohatt/File PhotoU.S. Travel said it believes the introduction of new mandatory negative COVID-19 testing requirements for all international air passengers aged two and older eliminates the need for quarantines for returning passengers. The new international testing requirements start Tuesday. The group said enforcing a “mandatory quarantine requirement for international travelers could be extremely difficult to enforce”. Biden’s order says “to the extent feasible” air travelers must comply with applicable CDC guidelines concerning international travel “including recommended periods of self-quarantine”.

The assessment will be carried out by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence in coordination with the FBI and Department of Homeland Security, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. Psaki said that, in addition to the threat assessment, the White House would build out capability within its National Security Council to counter domestic violent extremism, including a policy review on how the federal government can share information about the threat better. The White House also will coordinate relevant parts of the government to “enhance and accelerate efforts” to address the issue, Psaki added. “The January 6th assault on the Capitol and the tragic deaths and destruction that occurred underscored what we have long known: the rise of domestic violent extremism is a serious and growing national security threat. The U.S. Senate on Wednesday confirmed Avril Haines as the Director of National Intelligence, the nation’s top intelligence job.

LONDON (Reuters) - U.S. curbs on investors owning securities from a number of Chinese companies could affect as much as $60 billion worth of bonds and spark hefty outflows through forced selling, JPMorgan wrote in a note to clients. FILE PHOTO: Chinese and U.S. flags flutter outside the building of an American company in Beijing, China January 21, 2021. ChemChina had already suffered $1 billion of forced selling in the wake of the executive order and could see another $1.3 billion of outflows from affected investors, JPMorgan calculated. For the companies themselves, removing U.S. investors from the equation would only have a limited impact, JPMorgan added. “Their dependence on offshore investors for funding needs is low with offshore USD bonds forming a very small part of their capital structure,” JPMorgan analysts wrote.

Catholics increasingly express their support for reproductive rights, and the bishops who claim to speak for us have little understanding of the people in their pews. And, in fact, many practicing Catholics who support reproductive rights often do so not despite their faith, but because of it. Most American Catholics support reproductive choice. All over the world, people of all faith traditions are championing with increased urgency the sexual and reproductive health of all people. The Biden administration must listen to their voices, and commit to securing these most basic human rights.

“We are ready to work shoulder to shoulder (with the United States) to defeat COVID-19 and rebuild economies that benefit everyone,” Trudeau told reporters. “There will certainly be challenges... We are now beginning a new era of Canada-U.S. friendship and work,” he said. Biden’s scrapping of the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada to the United States on his first day in office on Wednesday threatened to derail Trudeau’s efforts. On Friday, Trudeau said he would speak to Biden about his concerns on the job losses. “I will express my concern for jobs and livelihoods in Canada, particularly in the west, directly in my conversation with President Biden,” Trudeau said.

Democrats spent the four years of the Trump administration talking tough on Russia, and now with President Joe Biden in the White House, they face an immediate challenge: addressing one of the worst hacking campaigns in U.S. history. Democrats who watched Donald Trump as president consistently defer to Russian President Vladimir Putin are eager to take a stronger stance. “CISA’s not resourced to do remediation and reconstitution of federal networks,” he said. The Biden administration also faces a difficult question in what to do about the hack. In the Biden administration’s first two news conferences, White House press secretary Jen Psaki stressed that dealing with the SolarWinds hack was a priority, but that it’s still early in the administration.

Gun incident involving Republican lawmaker prompts police probe

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Capitol Police on Friday were investigating an incident in which a Republican lawmaker was found carrying a concealed gun while trying to enter the floor of the House of Representatives, a Capitol official said. The Maryland Republican then tried to hand the gun off to Republican Representative John Katko, who refused, saying he did not have a license, the report said. House authorities installed metal detectors outside the chamber to beef up security in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot by former President Donald Trump’s supporters. Several Republican lawmakers, ardent supporters of gun rights, have loudly complained about the metal detectors and some have ignored them. The Capitol official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said lawmakers are allowed to carry guns on Capitol grounds so long as ammunition is kept separate, but firearms are not allowed on the House floor.

Iran's Zarif urges Biden to act first in returning U.S. to nuclear deal

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Iran urged new U.S. President Joe Biden on Friday to “choose a better path” by returning to a 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and global powers, but said the opportunity would be lost if Washington insists on further Iranian concessions up front. Biden, who took office on Wednesday, “can begin by removing all sanctions imposed since Trump assumed office and seek to re-enter and abide by the 2015 nuclear deal without altering its painstakingly negotiated terms,” Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote in Foreign Affairs magazine. Biden has said that if Tehran resumed strict compliance with the 2015 agreement Washington would rejoin it. Zarif said temporary limitations on Iran’s defence and missile procurements under the 2015 deal cannot be re-negotiated. He reiterated that, separate from the nuclear issues, Iran was willing to discuss problems in the Middle East.

REUTERS/Dado RuvicThe COVAX scheme, led by the WHO and the GAVI vaccine alliance, signed deals for hundreds of millions of doses to vaccinate people in poor and lower-middle income countries, but vaccinations have yet to start. Bourla said the 40 million doses, a fraction of the company’s total 2021 production estimate of 2 billion, would be sold on a non-profit basis. He described it as an initial agreement, and said more doses could be provided through the COVAX programme in future. He said he hoped the agreement would also encourage other countries to donate more of their Pfizer shots to support rapid roll-out, like Norway has. The WHO said earlier this week it planned to deliver 135 million vaccines in the first quarter of 2021, without giving a breakdown by supplier.

WASHINGTON — The Senate on Friday voted overwhelmingly to confirm the first Black secretary of defense, retired four-star Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, who first needed Congress to approve a waiver for him to fill the Cabinet position. Austin retired in 2016. The House and Senate quickly approved the waiver for Austin on Thursday. In testimony at his confirmation hearing this week, Austin said that the “most immediate” challenge facing the U.S. is the coronavirus pandemic. The Senate Finance Committee unanimously reported Yellen's nomination to the floor Friday morning in a 26-0 vote.

WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will transmit to the Senate on Monday an article of impeachment against former President Donald Trump, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced Friday. The transmission will trigger preparations for a trial that could start as early as next week, but Senate leaders indicated it may be delayed to allow Trump to organize his defense. "Make no mistake: A trial will be held in the United States Senate, and there will be a vote whether to convict the president," Schumer, a New York Democrat, said. If convicted, the Senate is also expected to vote on whether to bar Trump from holding office again. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Trump is owed a "full and fair process where the former president can mount a defense."

Slideshow ( 2 images )DUBAI (Reuters) - Twitter suspended an account linked to Iran’s Supreme Leader on Friday, hours after it carried the image of a golfer resembling former President Donald Trump apparently being targeted by a drone alongside a vow to avenge the killing of a top Iranian general in a U.S. drone attack. The post, on a Persian-language account linked to Khamenei’s website, had carried the text of remarks by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in December, in which he said “Revenge is certain”. That speech renewed a vow of vengeance ahead of the first anniversary of the killing of top military commander General Qassem Soleimani in the attack in Iraq.

Both governments later confirmed that Lopez Obrador and Biden would speak by phone on Friday afternoon. Lopez Obrador also angered Washington by publishing a large dossier from the case that the United States had provided in confidence. Just on Thursday, Lopez Obrador said another phone call with Biden was not needed after the two men spoke in December. Under Trump, in return for a hardline stance on immigration, Lopez Obrador received little high-level U.S. pressure over his push for more state control in the energy sector. “There is no way that we are going to invent crimes,” said Lopez Obrador.

WASHINGTON — The Biden administration moved quickly on Thursday to name new leadership at Voice of America and other U.S.-funded media, replacing a Trump ally with a news editor he had recently demoted. Reilly was replaced by Yolanda Lopez, a news editor who will serve as acting director at VOA. The two pushed to remove the staff members even though the Biden administration had issued instructions to suspend any personnel actions or proceedings at VOA and other networks. The director of VOA, Reilly, also contended his sacking was illegal and he too was escorted out of the building, she said. Pack named Reilly as director of VOA only weeks before the Biden administration was due to take over.

Walmart is already vaccinating healthcare workers in New Mexico and its home state of Arkansas. Alabama’s health officer, Scott Harris, on Thursday said the state would partner with Walmart to provide COVID-19 vaccinations. Walmart confirmed that deal, which falls under a federal partnership that Biden on Thursday said would launch in early February. “Once there’s a broader supply and we can regularly start allocating to more pharmacies, they will be included,” the spokesperson said.

The POW-MIA flag, which is dedicated to prisoners of war and servicemembers missing in action, was relocated last year from a prominent position atop the White House to a less visible spot on the South Lawn. The move came months after Trump signed into law a bill requiring the flag to be flown at certain federal properties including the White House every day. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The black and white POW-MIA flag, which reads: “You are not forgotten,” depicts a man beneath a guard tower gazing down at a barbed-wire fence. The Trump White House declined to explain why the flag was relocated but said last year it was done in a private ceremony with full military honors.
