September 20, 2017 Middle East Monitor 0

Tunisian President, Beji Caid Essebsi, reiterated his commitment to working with Ennahdha Movement Party, which, according to him, had restored Tunisia’s stability. In a lengthy interview with the Tunisian television on Monday evening, Essebsi said that “Ennahdha Party has made great efforts separating between the preaching and the political discourse, and that, under the leadership of Rached Ghannouchi, it has taken considerable steps in the path of moderation though that is not enough.” Essebsi pointed out that coexistance with Ennahdha Party has succeeded and there is no objection to its continuation. He said: “With coexistence we achieved a good stability, and it was a successful experience with positive results for the Tunisian people. Since the experience was successful, it is […]

New Zealand jet fuel rationing to run for days; disrupts air travel

WELLINGTON: A jet fuel shortage debacle disrupting thousands of travelers in New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland, would likely last for eight more days, an oil industry spokesman said on Wednesday.
The shortage has caused widespread disruption to air travel since the weekend, and comes only days before Saturday’s national election where infrastructure has been a hotly contested issue.
The government has set up an industry and government group to oversee the country’s response to the crisis, including government and Auckland Council agencies as well as Air New Zealand and private oil firms, Energy and Resources minister Judith Collins said on Wednesday.
Fuel industry spokesman Andrew McNaught said airline fuel rationing would stay in place until Sept. 28.
The mayor of Auckland sought to reassure residents that the city would not run out of fuel.
“The assurance I have been given is that Auckland City will not run out of fuel for petrol and diesel for the vehicle fleet, and that’s really important,” Auckland Mayor Phil Goff, told Radio New Zealand.
Government agencies have arranged truck deliveries of fuel after a damaged pipeline cut the supply to Auckland Airport, and have even synched traffic lights to help hasten the journey.
The fuel shortages would affect about 9,000 passengers’ air travel plans on Wednesday, Air New Zealand said. About a third of those would have their flights canceled, while others would face delays.
The airline has so far cut 41 flights, 15 of them international.
It lifted an earlier ticket sale restriction on longhaul international flights, but was still limiting sales on flights in the Pacific region, including to neighboring Australia.
The opposition Labour Party has used the disruption to criticize the ruling National government just days before the Sept. 23 election, with polls showing a neck-and-neck race.
“We were obviously vulnerable. Work should have been done to make sure we were more resilient than this,” Labour leader Jacinda Ardern told reporters.
So far, economists said, the country’s economy had not been significantly affected but that could change if the pipeline was not fully restored within the next ten or so days.
“Should the issue drag on for longer than that it may start to impact upon economic activity, though at this stage that is not the central case,” Sean Keane, a director at Triple T Consulting who works under the umbrella of Credit Suisse, said in a research note on Monday.

Cuba calls Trump’s UN address ‘unacceptable and meddling’

HAVANA: Cuba on Tuesday slammed US President Donald Trump’s latest comments about the island as “disrespectful, unacceptable and meddling,” while reiterating it was not involved in the alleged incidents that had harmed US diplomats in Havana.
The sharply worded Foreign Ministry statement came after US and Cuban delegations met in Washington to discuss bilateral relations, the first such high-level meeting between the Cold War foes since Trump took office in January.
Their meeting took place on the same day Trump addressed the United Nations General Assembly in New York, calling Cuba “corrupt and destabilizing.” He also said he would not lift the US trade embargo on Cuba until it made “fundamental reforms.”
Cuba said it had voiced “strong protest” against his comments, as well against his new policy toward the Communist-run nation. The Republican president announced in June a partial rollback of the US-Cuban detente forged by his Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama.
“In the wake of the disrespectful, unacceptable and meddling statements made by President Donald Trump in his address to the UN General Assembly at a time when the US-Cuba Bilateral Commission was sitting in session, the Cuban delegation voiced a strong protest,” the Foreign Ministry statement said.
US-Cuban relations have become especially strained since the State Department said last month its personnel in Havana had experienced physical symptoms from what it could only describe as “incidents.”
The symptoms ranged from hearing loss to mild brain injury, a State Department official said last week, adding that the toll of victims had risen to 21 people linked to the US Embassy. Several Canadians were also affected.
Cuba has denied any involvement and the United States has not blamed it, although Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Sunday it could close its embassy in response.
“Cuba has never perpetrated or will ever perpetrate actions of this nature, and has never permitted or will ever permit any third-party use of its territory for this purpose,” Cuba’s Foreign Ministry said.
“The Cuban authorities have shown keen interest in both clarifying this matter.”
