N. Korea's Kim shows unity with China's Xi in first foreign tripNorth Korean leader Kim Jong Un was given a lavish welcome by Chinese President Xi Jinping during a secretive trip to Beijing as both sides try to repair frayed relations before Pyongyang’s landmark summits with Seoul and Washington. US President Donald Trump welcomed the Beijing meeting and said there was now a “good chance” Kim would scrap his nuclear weapons — but warned that sanctions must stay in force in the meantime. On his first trip abroad since taking power, Kim and his wife were greeted by an honour guard and a banquet hosted by Xi, according to state media, which confirmed the “unofficial” visit on Wednesday only after Kim had returned by train to North Korea.

Explainer: Foreign powers obstruct more Assad gains in SyriaBy Tom Perry and Laila Bassam BEIRUT (Reuters) – Syria’s war is reaching a point where President Bashar al-Assad will not be able to win back much more territory without risking conflicts with foreign powers that have sent military forces to the country.

Putin, before vote, says Russia has thwarted hundreds of foreign spies

Putin, before vote, says Russia has thwarted hundreds of foreign spiesBy Andrew Osborn MOSCOW (Reuters) – President Vladimir Putin boasted Russia had thwarted more than 400 foreign spies last year and on Monday called on the FSB, the domestic intelligence agency, to act to block further foreign attempts to obtain political, economic and military information. Putin, who polls show should be comfortably re-elected on March 18, made the comments in a speech to FSB employees in Moscow where he also spoke of the need to step up Russia’s cyber defences and strengthen the security of confidential communications systems used by Russian officials. Putin once ran the FSB himself and his comments played into one of his core narratives which depicts Russia as a fortress besieged by hostile foreign powers and him as its defender-in-chief.
