The US will strengthen strategic partnership with India despite the Pannun episode. White House spokesperson John Kirby takes the allegations and investigation seriously. The US Justice Department chargesheet reveals a drug dealer, Nikhil Gupta, conspired to kill Pannun on directions from an Indian intelligence official. Speculation arises over whether the alleged plot was officially sanctioned by New Delhi or a rogue operation involving an errant intelligence official.

China Condemns America’s Veto of Call for Israel-Gaza Ceasefire at UN

China Condemns America’s Veto , of Call for Israel-Gaza Ceasefire at UN. On Feb. 20, the U.S. vetoed an Algerian resolution for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza because it would allegedly "jeopardize" negotiations to end the war, BBC reports. . 13 out of 15 U.N. Security Council members supported Algeria's resolution. Proceeding with a vote today was wishful and irresponsible, and so while we cannot support a resolution that would put sensitive negotiations in jeopardy, we look forward to engaging on a text that we believe will address so many of the concerns we all share, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., via statement. We just weren’t able to support a resolution today that was going to put sensitive negotiations in peril– and that’s what we believe this resolution would do, John Kirby, National Security Council spokesman, via statement. Instead, America has proposed a temporary ceasefire to ensure "the safety of and support for the civilians," President Biden said earlier this month. Instead, America has proposed a temporary ceasefire to ensure "the safety of and support for the civilians," President Biden said earlier this month. China has condemned the U.S.' actions, saying the veto sends the "wrong message," BBC reports. . Zhang Jun, China's U.N. ambassador, called America's claims "totally untenable.". Given the situation on the ground, the continued passive avoidance of an immediate ceasefire is nothing different from giving a green light to the continued slaughter, Zhang Jun, China's U.N. ambassador, via statement. The spillover of the conflict is destabilizing the entire Middle East region, leading to rising risk of a wider war, Zhang Jun, China's U.N. ambassador, via statement. Only by extinguishing the flames of war in Gaza can we prevent the fires of hell from engulfing the entire region, Zhang Jun, China's U.N. ambassador, via statement. On Feb. 20, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that he was "committed to continuing the war until we achieve all of its goals.". Over 29,000 people have been killed in Gaza as part of Israel's response to an attack by Hamas that left 1,200 dead on Oct. 7.

'The Guardian' reports that the decision reflects the delicate balance between decisively deterring future attacks and sparking a broader conflict with Iran. We are intent on doing both – that is, standing up for our people when they’re attacked, while at the same time working every single day to prevent the conflict from growing and spreading, Antony Blinken, United States Secretary of State, via 'The Guardian'. According to U.S. officials, the military response to the attack will come in phases. It’s fair for you to expect that we will respond in an appropriate fashion and it is very possible that what you’ll see is a tiered approach here, not just a single action, but essentially multiple actions, John Kirby, White House national security spokesperson, via 'The Guardian'. Iran has insisted that it was not responsible for the January 28 attack and has denied accusations of supporting militant groups attacking U.S. bases in the region. The Iran-backed militia blamed for the attack, which wounded dozens of others U.S. troops, said that it had suspended all anti-U.S. operations
