1/ TPLF is facing serious setbacks in the battlefield, despite rearmmamanet and logistical support from Egypt and the UN. The Americans are convinced the only way to keep #TPLF viable is to bring them to the negotiation table.
2/ The US and probably EU have strong armed the AU to be included in the negotiation in some capacity; to make sure TPLF gets a better deal than it deserves based on it's current military standing.
3/ If the GoE refuses, then the sanctions and 'genocide' determination will be reactivated. Behind th scenes, the cosponsors of #HR6600 have increased from 9 to 18 between April and Sptember! In a way this negotiation is between the USG and GoE!

6 months into #RussiaInvadedUkraine in 🇺🇦, let’s take another look at 🇺🇦🇷🇺 #negotiations. In his latest address #Zelensky referred to preparations for a show trial against 🇺🇦 soldiers in #Mariupol. 1/11…
This, he said, would “eliminate the possibility of talks with 🇷🇺”.

Mariupol also played an important role in the failure of the initial negotiation phase in May. Talks had already come to a near stand-still when the battle of Mariupol ended ... 2/11
... with the surrender of the defenders of the #Azovstal iron and steel works on 16/05. Up to 1700 🇺🇦 soldiers fell into 🇷🇺 captivity, facing threats of tough punishment, including #Medvedev’s infamous musings about the death penalty. 3/11

Anyone seen this on major news-channels - not at all in line with #masshysteria engineered by the global #deepstate? BIG kudos to @luigidimaio and Mario #Draghi @Palazzo_Chigi for coming up with this plan to end #UkraineRussiaWar - throwing down a gauntlet to the #deepstate. ...
... and they will have to craft an "alliance of the sane", so started with @antonioguterres and canvassing #G7 - knowing that a lot of "allied sanity" is needed against the war-mongers in #Ukraine, here @Podolyak_M speaking for the #deepstate ...…
... and, finally, to give deserved credit: My attention was drawn to this initiative by this interesting interview on status of negotiations in @truthout, quite interesting otherwise, too - though nothing really new.…

THREAD. Day 52d since #RussiaInvadedUkraine. How does situation look on the ground? Below find overview on 1)military situation. 2)developments in temporary occupied areas 3) negotiations 4)what to expect ⬇️1/
1)Military situation. #Russia seriously changed its tactics. After failure of RU land operation in the North (#Kyiv, Sumy, Kharkiv) RU is concentrating its efforts in fixing its presence in the South, occupation of whole #Donbas and ensuring land corridor btw Russia and Crimea 2/
Donbas is needed for #Russia for 2 reasons. 1)Ideological: to show success before May,9. If #Putin can’t occupy even Donbas (that is not enough for RU), he is complete looser and propaganda won’t explain it. 2)Military: RU wants to weaken the most efficient part of UA army 3/

An alleged #TTP member wrote on twitter:
"Over the past few days, there have been reports of talks between the TTP& #PAK government/army:
* There is no progress yet.
* Prisoners release is the first condition but not fulfilled yet.
* About talks, all TTP is on the same platform.
* Both parties don't confirm talks to media, for caution.
* The #IEA may be a mediator, but neutral. Even it is possible that IEA as a mujahidin movement be more in favor of TTP.
* Attempts to spoil negotiations, make it unconditional& to prove it failed, are already neutralized.
* TTP will definitely not hold unconditional or non-Sharia talks, inshallah."

#FFS! 🤦🏻‍♂️😱🤬…

Not so much "Farewell #Whitehall, hello #RedSquare?"* as rank #incompetence and a disturbing disregard of #NationalSecurity...

And those who've followed closely* will be aware of the Gov't #disinformation campaign about what turns out to be THEIR fault:

*Contrary to later spin about Corbyn, the documents first surfaced in JULY 2019... in the @Telegraph:…
While I'd be concerned about monitoring of *anyone's* #personal comms devices - #HumanRights are for everyone, after all! - @1Br0wn makes the excellent point that fixing this is not just about #security, but #usability:

Why #Armenia launched attacks to #Tovuz (non-contested) of #Azerbaijan? Since the taking power in Armenia @NikolPashinyan
use war rethoric and destructive comments on ongoing #negotiations over #NagornoKarabakh and occupied regions of 🇦🇿.
In most recent interviews both @presidentaz and minister of @wwwmodgovaz stated that they are not satisfied with ongoing negotiations.
But their comments directed to internal audience. This gave a chance to Armenia launch attack and blame Azerbaijan.
But why not in #Karabakh but in uncontested region? There are 5 possible explanations...1) Both state suffer from #COVID19 and tried distract attention ( but very weak explanation since)

Ahead of publication of UK's objectives for its future relationship #negotiations with the EU, & of normal Thurs @HouseofCommons #BusinessQuestions this AM, a quick thread on some aspects of where we are on #Parliament side of things. 1/
1st, remember that, 'cos of way UK does treaties, gov is under no obligation to publish what it's publishing today. UK gov is under no obligation to tell Parl anything about treaties it's negotiating unless & until they need domestic implementing legislation +/or ratification. 2/
So, fact that gov is publishing a paper today, & doing so accompanied by both a written & oral statement to Parl, is good. It continues longstanding practice of UK gov publishing some kind of doc before start of negs with (pre-Brexit, the rest of) the EU. But... 3/

The head of the Haqqani Network - a terrorist group with close ties to al-Qaeda - gets an op-ed in the NYT to speak on behalf of the Taliban (as opposed to its central leader Mullah Haibatullah) - ahead of the signing of a peace agreement with the US.…
Sirajuddin Haqqani does not mention his longtime ally al-Qaeda by name. Instead uses vague language (“disruptive” and “foreign” groups) to refer to the transnational jihadist entity. He even terms its presence in Afghanistan as exaggerated. See this bit👇
Of course, the vague language about not allowing Afghan soil to be used by transnational jihadists as a launchpad for int’l attacks is designed to satisfy a long-standing US demand. It comes from a man whose faction within the Taliban is the closest to al-Qaeda.
