POTENTIAL FOR CONFLICT IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEAS
28 MAY 2018 – China has voiced “strong dissatisfaction” after two US warships sailed by an island claimed by Beijing in the disputed South China Sea, adding to simmering tensions in the strategic waterway. The foreign ministry issued a statement expressing “resolute opposition” to the US sail-by of the territory in the disputed Paracel Island chain on Sunday.
TRUMP CANCELS US-NORTH KOREA SUMMIT
25 MAY 2018 – Donald Trump has cancelled his planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, blaming increasingly hostile rhetoric from Pyongyang. After several days during which the president appeared to be signalling that secret negotiations ahead of his planned meeting for June 12 were not going well, he said he was pulling out of the meeting because of the “tremendous anger and open hostility” in a recent statement from Mr Kim. He called it a “missed opportunity” and “truly sad moment in history”. It had been Mr Trump’s ambition to secure a peace deal with North Korea – something that none of his predecessors were able to do – and that has now apparently been placed on the back burner.

A CHRISTIAN RESPONSE TO THE GAZA CRISIS
18 MAY 2018 – The Gaza crisis continues to polarise nations and individuals around the world. The question that Christians need to consider is not who is right and who is wrong, or who is to be blamed for the countless deaths and deep trauma, but how to maintain a position of being “peacemakers” in a region of perpetual war.
