After cabinet backing, May girds for Brexit battle in UK parliament

By William James and Kylie MacLellan LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May won the backing of her senior ministers for a draft European Union divorce deal on Wednesday, freeing her to tackle the much more perilous struggle of getting parliament to approve the agreement. More than two years after the United Kingdom voted in a referendum to leave the EU, May told reporters outside her Downing Street residence that she had won over her divided cabinet, which includes some senior Brexiteers. "The collective decision of cabinet was that the government should agree the draft withdrawal agreement and the outline political declaration," she said, after a five-hour meeting.

France’s World Cup triumphs changed attitudes to immigrants: Thuram

By Richard Martin BARCELONA (Reuters) - France's two World Cup wins in 1998 and 2018, which were characterised by the diversity of the players' backgrounds, have helped to ease racial tensions in the country and changed attitudes to immigrants, former defender Lilian Thuram has said. Thuram, who is France's most capped player, propelled them to their first ever World Cup final 20 years ago with two goals in a semi-final against Croatia, which set his side on their way to a triumph on home soil. Yet the former Monaco, Parma, Juventus and Barcelona defender is also renowned for his political views, famously speaking up for citizens in the marginalised Paris suburbs during riots in 2005 and fiercely criticising then French president Nicolas Sarkozy for labelling the rioters as "scum" The post France’s World Cup triumphs changed attitudes to immigrants: Thuram appeared first on Firstpost.

In APEC host Papua New Guinea, China and the West grapple over strategic port

By Colin Packham and Philip Wen SYDNEY/BEIJING (Reuters) - When Papua New Guinea Prime Minister Peter O'Neill flagged the possibility of China bankrolling a port development off his country's northern coast in June, the consternation in neighbouring Australia set off a lightening-fast response. Despite a change in leadership in Australia's government in August, a rival offer was swiftly formulated, government and diplomatic sources told Reuters, amid concern the strategically-located Manus Island port could regularly host Chinese military vessels. Canberra, a staunch Washington ally, said earlier this month it would fund the port development, part of what analysts see as a push to reassert its dominance in the South Pacific as Beijing seeks a more prominent role.
