china’s defense ministry has voiced regret after the united states withdrew an invitation to china to attend a major us-hosted naval drill amid their dispute over the south china sea.china’s defense ministry said in a statement on thursday that closing the door would not promote mutual trust and cooperation.“this decision by the united states is not constructive. closing the door to communication at any time is not conducive toward promoting mutual trust and communication between the chinese and us militaries,” the statement read.it added that the united states had “ignored the facts and hyped up the so-called ‘militarization’ of the south china sea,” using it as an excuse to take back invite to china.“being invited or not cannot change china’s will to play a role in protecting peace and stability in the asia-pacific region, and cannot shake china’s firm determination to defend its sovereignty and security interests,” it said.the ministry called on china to abandon its “zero sum” mentality and appropriately handle disputes.the rim of the pacific exercise, known as rimpac and previously attended by china, is billed as the world’s largest international maritime exercise and held every two years in hawaii in june and july.the pentagon said wednesday that it had made the decision in the wake of “strong evidence” that beijing had deployed anti-ship missiles, surface-to-air missile systems and electronic jammers to the spratly islands, claimed by...

presstv-no russian missile involved in mh17 plane crash: moscow
russia’s defense ministry has strongly rejected fresh claims by an international investigation team that the ill-fated malaysia airlines flight mh17 was downed by a missile launched from a russian unit, stressing moscow has nothing to do with the tragic event in which some 300 people lost their lives after the plane was downed over eastern ukraine.“not a single anti-aircraft missile system of the russian armed forces has ever crossed the russian-ukrainian border,” the defense ministry said in a statement, carried by russia's state news agency tass, on thursday.“it is clear that these gratuitous accusations are an attempt to discredit our nation in the eyes of the international community,” it added.the statement came a few hours after dutch prosecutors investigating the disaster announced that a missile system purportedly from the 53rd anti-aircraft brigade of the russian armed forces had been allegedly employed to shoot down the passenger plane some four years ago. the incident took the lives of all 298 people on board. two thirds of the victims were dutch.the russian military further expressed concern over “the determination of the dutch-led investigation to justify its conclusions by solely using images from social networks that have been expertly altered with computer graphic editing tools.”presstv-west ‘dreams up’ russia role in mh17 crashrussia denounces as biased a dutch-led investigation that holds moscow responsible for the 2014 downing of flight mh...

the international atomic energy agency (iaea) has confirmed iran's compliance with its commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal, but has called on the country to go beyond its obligations.  according to an iaea report shown to the media on thursday, iran is observing the key restrictions under the nuclear agreement, known as the joint comprehensive plan of action (jcpoa).the iaea called on iran to remain compliant with the jcpoa and even go beyond its legal obligations in order to boost international confidence in tehran's commitments.a senior diplomat at the iaea headquarters in vienna said there has been no lack of cooperation or change of behavior on iran's part.however, the diplomat said, iran can go beyond its legal obligations by adopting certain measures such as inviting inspectors to the nuclear sites which they had not even demanded access to.the jcpoa, agreed between iran and the us, russia, china, germany, france and britain in july 2015, went into effect in january 2016. since then, the iaea has repeatedly confirmed iran’s full compliance with the deal in its numerous quarterly reports.on may 9, the iaea once again confirmed iran's commitment to its obligation hours after us president donald trump officially declared that his country was pulling out of the jcpoa.trump said washington would not only reinstate the anti-iran sanctions that were lifted as part of the deal, but would also “be instituting the highest level of economic” bans against t...

presstv- us wasted billions of dollars in afghanistan: watchdog
a us government watchdog has found that the united states wasted billions of dollars, purportedly trying to stabilize fragile parts of afghanistan over the past 17 years.the assessment has been made by special inspector general for afghanistan reconstruction (sigar) john sopko who presented a report in washington on thursday.  `despite some heroic efforts to stabilize insecure and contested areas in afghanistan between 2002 and 2017, the program mostly failed,` sopko said.sopko went on to say that washington had set unrealistic expectations for itself and overestimated its ability to build government institutions.`this happened for a number of reasons, including the establishment of a set of unrealistic expectations about what could be achieved in just a few years' time.`this photograph taken on august 28, 2017 shows us marines at the shorab military camp in the southern afghan province of helmand. (photo by afp)the report also found that the us military pressured aid groups to build infrastructure in areas that were still being contested by the taliban, leading to the failure of many projects.`opportunities for corruption and elite capture abounded, making many of those projects far more harmful than helpful,` the report stated.the sigar analysis noted that successes in stabilizing afghan districts rarely lasted longer than the physical presence of coalition troops.`under immense pressure to quickly stabilize insecure districts, us government agencies spent far to...
