It was also the clearest sign yet that the president did not accept Trump's election as a repudiation of his policies, despite Trump's ardent rejection of almost every piece of Obama's legacy. Politico noted that Obama and Trump met for about 90-minutes following the election and the two leaders have toned down their comments about one another.
Syrian state television said on Tuesday the Damascus government's air force took part in strikes against what it called terrorist strongholds in Aleppo's Old City.

Although Trudeau has not responded directly to many US citizens' interest in moving to Canada , Canadians did use election night to offer some comic relief on Twitter with the hashtag #MeanwhileInCanada. Klein agreed there is a potential economic upside to a Trump presidency. "We may not be treated as an ally, friend or partner on that file", he said in an email.
Should the law be enacted, Trudeau continued, "it could pave the way for the legalisation of dozens of illegal outposts deep in the West Bank", representing "an unprecedented and troubling step ". Trudeau added the Jewish settlements are "corrosive to the cause of peace". Settlements like Amona are considered outposts as they have not been given Israeli government approval.
Turkey's Foreign Ministry issued a travel warning concerning the United States as thousands of Americans have taken streets for the fourth day in a row to protest the President-elect Donald Trump.

Some EU members are calling for membership talks to be frozen because of growing concerns over ...

The EU has imposed sanctions on Russian Federation over its 2014 annexation of Crimea and destabilizing role elsewhere in Ukraine. Trump said that, as president, he may not come to the aid of countries that did not spend enough on defense, appearing to break ...
A report issued on Monday by the ICC's Office of the Prosecutor angered Moscow by referring to Russia's 2014 annexation of Ukraine's Crimea as an armed conflict. "Any act that may undermine the global movement towards greater accountability for atrocity crimes and a ruled-based worldwide order in this new century is surely - when objectively viewed - regrettable", she said.
On Monday, meanwhile, the ICC issued a preliminary report that described Crimea as "an global armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation". "Though the powerful may fear the court, victims everywhere plead for its involvement", United Nations human rights chief Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein said.
Although some states are still counting votes, Clinton now leads Trump by a margin of 671,246 votes overall, according to the Associated Press tally as of Monday night.

Australian batsman Adam Voges has been urged to relax and remember his past feats in a bid to save his Test career. He has been ruled out of the rest of the match.

Selectors are scrambling to assemble a team that can bat for a day in time for the third test, a day-night match which starts November 24 in Adelaide.

However, the output at which Iran would be expected to freeze continues to be one of the most hard issues for OPEC to solve, if it is to reach a deal. A stronger U.S. currency usually reduces the appeal of dollar-denominated raw materials as an investment. "There remains event risks from United States inventory reports in addition to non-OPEC members' stance that could jeopardize the current recovery pace of oil prices", Pan said.
Descriptions by the Kremlin and Trump's office of the call were warm, even effusive, yet coincided with new tensions between Washington and Moscow that have flared to become more severe than at any time since the end of the Cold War.

That reset was mostly forgotten by the late years of the Obama presidency, with the USA launching a massive military buildup along Russia's border in ...

The law had been due to get its first reading in parliament this week until Yaakov Litzman, a member of the ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism party, stepped in late on Tuesday to block the bill. Almost 600,000 Jewish settlers now live in the West Bank and east Jerusalem . The proposed legislation that might apply to an estimated 2,000 to 3,000 Jewish settler homes, states that the Israeli government could use the land in exchange for compensation in the form of either money or ...

With France's far-right National Front party tweeting that Trump's office had invited them to "work together", Obama said it would be wrong to treat them as normal politicians.
