A call from US senators to vote against the Russian candidate for the position of the head of Interpol is an act of interference in the electoral process, Kremlin's official spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. The Kremlin responded to the publication of an open letter from US senators, in which they urged  the administration of the US President and members of the Interpol General Assembly to vote against Alexander Prokopchuk, a Russian candidate, for the position of the head of the International Criminal Police Organisation. According to Putin's press secretary Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin saw the letter. "Perhaps, this is a kind of interference in the electoral process," Peskov said adding that one should wait for the results of the election to be exposed. The letter from US senators was published on the website of one of its authors - US Senator Roger Wicker. In the letter, Wicker, as well as Democrats Jen Sahin, Chris Koons and Republican Marco Rubio, wrote that the election of Alexander P...

The test-firing of an “ultramodern tactical weapon” by the North Korean military sends messages to both domestic and international audiences, according to analysts, with the presence of Kim Jong-un at Friday’s exercises underlining Pyongyang’s resolve to stand up to Washington. North Korean state media reported that the North Korean leader “supervised” a test of a weapon that is “a decisive turn in the fighting capacity of the Korean People’s Army”.  The South Korean government believes the new weapon to be a long-range artillery piece - possibly a mobile launcher for conventional rockets with an advanced guidance system - that has been in development since the rule of Kim Jong-il, who died in 2011. “There have been reports in recent years that the North was developing long-range artillery that would be able to hit the US garrison at Camp Humphreys or the air force base at Osan”, said Daniel Pinkston, a professor of international relations at the Seoul campus of...

Massimo Luongo scored with the last kick of the game to secure a 1-1 draw for Australia against South Korea in Graham Arnold's first home game back in charge. Arnold kicked off his second stint with a 4-0 away win over Kuwait last month but looked to be heading for an underwhelming defeat when Hwang Ui-jo took advantage of some generous defending after 22 minutes to put South Korea ahead. There was late drama, however, as Luongo tapped in from close range three minutes into stoppage time to salvage a draw, the goal eventually given after a VAR review for possible offside.
