Dear @comcare_gov_au,
I have recently received a response to a #FOI request in relation to the #Comcare investigation into #mould at the #Nauru RPC. Reviewing my original email to yourself in 2018, I feel I may not have made one aspect clear enough.
1/
I would appreciate it if you could clarify whether the incident of a contracted mould inspector (microbiologist) being asked to remove his PPE for the inspection and consequently becoming sick, was part of the @comcare_gov_au investigation into the mould issue
2/
...in the tents at the RPC on #Nauru or was treated as a separate investigation.
The FOI response I received on the 5th of June 2020 in relation to MC00004067, has plainly stated that Comcare never interviewed Dr Cameron Jones, the microbiologist in question.

THREAD. With US-#Taliban deal imminent, I'm often asked, why now? Why has the negotiation reached a conclusion now and not earlier in 10 years of on-and-off US efforts to launch an #AfghanPeaceProcess? Three inter-related changes in US policy explain the difference . . . . 1/13
First is heightened US desire to draw down US military presence in #Afghanistan. This didn't start with Trump; he accelerated a political trend that was already gradually building. And he scared US national security principals into thinking he might pull out troops abruptly. 2/13
Obama supposedly wanted to end US mil presence by end of his term, but his Administration never put attempt to negotiate a way out at the center of US policy. Nor did Trump, at first, but that changed in late 2018, after Trump tried a somewhat stepped-up military effort. 3/13

Robust ties with #Qatar are part of #Pakistan's overall close strategic relationship with #Gulf/#GCC states. The internal Gulf crisis had little impact on #Islamabad's relations with Gulf states, and there's no juggling act, unlike the common perception. Ties are not zero-sum.
#Qatar's pledge to invest up to $22B in #Pakistan in coming years, on the heels of multibillion-dollar #KSA/#UAE/#Kuwait investments confirms #Gulf is of paramount economic/political/security importance for Pak, and #Islamabad is rightly involved in Gulf security arrangements.

For the record @MEForum has never received any funding from #UAE or #Egypt (let alone any Arab country) and our narrative is #American not #Foreign vs. @Andreas_Krieg who worked on a #Qatar funded contract for the @DefenceHQ - stop shilling for your overlords.
Moreover:
1. #Israel had no need for #Qatar - it can speak to or bomb #Hamas without #Doha involvement.
2. @BarackObama may have been appeased the #Taliban by acquiescing to the #Doha terror office; but now it’s a #Taliban demand: “Our demand about having an official political office is clear, we want that our office in Doha is recognised by the international community and the UN.”

1."#UK, #France follow #US in destructive policies in SYR, use blackmail, threaten RUS,
2.Even during #ColdWar Western diplomats didn't afford such tone vis-a-vis #Russia, "You understand what you did [in #MIddleEast]?No, you don't!Will you ever stop your geopolitical experiments?Do you understand what dangerous line you are driving the world to?
3.What's next for us?The most dangerous line of the confrontation is in #Syria.
In #EasternGhouta radicals have been terorrizing population for many years. Now people are being freed..But external sponsors prevent this progress.Terrorists wanted to continue blackmailing civilians

Last preparations are underway. Takeoff from Zurich to Kathmandu via Doha is tomorrow morning.

Just a tiny challenge to fit all this and stay within the airlines luggage restrictions 😅

Next: She will have a stop over in #Doha from 3pm (CET) until around midnight (CET) and then continue on to #Kathmandu. More 2 follow on #Boardroom2Everest
4) Safe arrival in #Doha. Possibly more Swiss chocolate there than in Zurich 🤔 Last work emails are being answered. Flight to #Kathmandu departs in around 3 hours. ImageImage
