PSK

White House press secretary Jen Psaki has denied that the United States was involved in a plot to assassinate Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.

The ‘Cyprus meeting’ of officials from Israeli, the UAE, Greece and Cyprus highlights the ‘changing’ Middle East.

MBS

Against the backdrop of the public flogging given by American President Biden to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Washington in recent weeks has actively sought to use Riyadh in a game with Iran to its own advantage.

WTHD34111
