Washington begins to punish Ankara, Tehran refuses to negotiate its missiles

On Wednesday morning, the international press touched upon Trump's decision to prevent Turkey from acquiring US F-35s, Tehran's refusal to negotiate ballistic missiles, and the press focused on the meeting which it is supposed to be held between Washington and Moscow on the nuclear agreement.

After President Trump announced his rejection of Turkey's acquisition of US aircraft, the Wall Street Journal reported that the move came after Ankara received a new missile defense system from Russia.

President Trump said the United States would block sales of advanced F-35 advanced jet fighters to Turkey after Ankara received a new air defense system from Russia.

Iran refuses to negotiate its ballistic missile program

Iran denied on Monday that Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif had expressed willingness to negotiate with the United States over the disputed ballistic missile program, according to media reports reported by the Israeli Newspaper "The Times of Israel".

"Iran's missiles are never negotiable and in any way with anyone or any country," Ali Reza Mir Yousuf, spokesman for Iran's UN mission, said.

US-Russian talks on new nuclear weapons deal

In another context, the United States and Russia will meet today to discuss the possibility of concluding a tripartite nuclear weapons treaty, possibly including China.

The Trump administration has sought to extend the new START treaty, the last remaining arms control treaty between Washington and Moscow, where Washington insists that China should be included in any future deal.

Arms control experts have warned that there could be a nuclear arms race unless both sides can negotiate a treaty extension before it ends in 2021. President Putin said last month he would abandon the deal if Washington was not interested in it, saying he had failed to engage President Trump in this case.

Talks between Moscow and Washington will start today, and the US delegation will be led by US Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan, while the Russian delegation will be headed by Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.

Raising Daesh flag in a Syrian camp is detention center of Daesh families

The British Newspaper" Independent" reported the raising of Daesh flag in al-Hol camp with the launch of slogans for Daesh, which was reported by the newspaper as one of many similar incidents in the camp in recent weeks.

A black Daesh flag was raised in a Syrian camp that includes tens of thousands of members of the terrorist group, nearly four months after the announcement of the official caliphate defeat.

Earlier this month, a videotape filmed at the camp showed women pledging allegiance to the leader of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, where many guards were attacked by the women of Daesh.

Despite escalating tensions in camps like al-Hol camp, the international community remains at odds over what to do with them.
