4. Trump renews Kashmir mediation offer

• After over a week-long hiatus, US President Donald Trump has once again offered to mediate in the Kashmir dispute between Pakistan and India, only to be rejected by the Indian government that insisted it would not accept any third-party mediation on its disputes with Pakistan.
• Mr Trump said he would `certainly intervene` to resolve this 70-year-old dispute if asked to do so when asked at a White House press talk on August 1, 2019 how he wanted to resolve the Kashmir dispute.
• `If I can … if they wanted me to, I would certainly intervene,` said the US president.

5. Bombs rattle Bangkok during Asean summit; two suspects held

• Two men from Thailand`s insurgency-hit south have been arrested and linked to several small bombs which rattled Bangkok on August 2, 2019 as it hosted a regional summit attended by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, leaving four people wounded but not disrupting the diplomatic event.
• Thailand, which has a grim history of political violence and is fighting a long-running rebellion in the Muslim-majority south, remains deeply divided after a controversial March election returned a junta to power as a civilian government.
• Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha, who led the former junta, told reporters `there were nine successful or attempted explosions… we haven`t ruled out any motives.` Two men from the far south were arrested hours after wires and ball bearings were found in an inactive device outside Thai police headquarters late on Thursday.

6. Saudi govt lifts travel curbs on women

• Saudi Arabia has allowed adult women to travel without permission and granted them more control over family matters, further eroding a heavily criticized male guardianship system.
• A series of royal decrees published by the official gazette on August 2, 2019 stipulated that a Saudi passport should be issued to any citizen who applies for it and that any person above the age of 21 does not need permission to travel.
• The amendments to regulations also grant women for the first time the right to register child birth, marriage or divorce and to be issued official family documents and be eligible as a guardian to children who are minors.
• Riyadh has long endured international censure over the status of women, who rights groups say are often treated as second-class citizens under rules requiring them to get the consent of a male guardian for important decisions throughout their lives, regardless of age.

7. US, Russia rip up Cold War-era missile treaty

• The United States and Russia ripped up a Cold War-era missile pact on August 2, 2019 in a move that raised the spectre of an arms race between the global powers.
• The 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty limited the use of medium-range missiles, both conventional and nuclear.
• US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Washington`s formal withdrawal in a prepared statement at a regional forum in Bangkok, minutes after Russia pronounced the treaty void.
• Both sides had signalled their intention to pull out of the treaty for months, trading accusations of breaking the terms of the deal.
• `Russia is solely responsible for the treaty`s demise,` Pompeo said in a statement issued at an Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) foreign ministers` meeting.

8. Trump says he’ll put 10pc tariffs on remaining China imports

• President Donald Trump intensified pressure on China to reach a trade deal by saying he will impose 10% tariffs Sept. 1 on the remaining $300 billion in Chinese imports he hasn’t already taxed. The move immediately sent stock prices sinking.
• US consumers will likely feel the pain if Trump proceeds with the new tariffs. Trump’s earlier tariffs had been designed to minimize the impact on ordinary Americans by focusing on industrial goods. But the new tariffs will hit a vast range of consumer products from cell phones to silk scarves.
• The president’s announcement via Twitter came as a surprise, in part because the White House on Wednesday had said Beijing confirmed that it planned to increase its purchases of American farm products. That word came just as US and Chinese negotiators were ending a 12th round of trade talks in Shanghai, which the White House called “constructive.”
• China’s foreign minister criticized the move.
