  • The July 16 head-to-head will follow a NATO summit in Brussels that Washington`s European partners fear will serve as another stage for the US leader to berate them and scorn the Western alliance.
  • Trump has long called for warmer ties with Moscow, but the talks come as Russia`s relations with the West languish at levels not seen since the Cold War.
  • The meeting will likely provoke criticism for Trump at home, where investigators are probing possible collusion between his presidential campaign team and Moscow.
  • Russia`s annexation of Crimea and its support for separatists in eastern Ukraine, as well as Moscow`s backing of Bashar al-Assad`s regime in the Syrian conflict will also loom large.

  • William wandered through the Al Aqsa compound accompanied by a large Israeli security detail and members of the Jordanian-run religious trust that administers it.
  • It was the first time a member of the royal family had ever visited the compound, which houses the Al Aqsa mosque and the iconic golden-topped Dome of the Rock.
  • The second-in-line to the British throne also visited the adjacent Western Wall, the holiest place at which Jews are allowed to pray, accompanied by its director general and by Britain`s chief rabbi Ephraim Mirvis.
  • Since Israel occupied Arab east Jerusalem in the Six Day War of 1967, hardline Jewish activists have campaigned for the right to pray inside the mosque compound, the most inflammatory single issue of the Middle East conflict.
  1. Australia bans covert foreign interference in politics

  • The conservative government says the legislation, first proposed in December, is the major cause of a rift in diplomatic relations with China. But the government maintains it is not aimed at any particular country.
  1. Four killed in shooting at office of US daily
  • Several people were feared killed on June 28, 2018 in a shooting at the building that houses the Capital Gazette, a daily newspaper published in Annapolis, a historic city an hour east of Washington.
  • A gunman shot through the glass door to the office and opened fire on multiple employees.

  1. Fresh delay in launch of Nasa’s telescope
  • Nasa has said that human and technical errors had caused a fresh delay in the launch of a giant space telescope, which will now not be deployed before March 2021.
  • The James Webb Space Telescope – which Nasa has long expected to replace the fabled Hubble – was initially meant to go into service this year but has faced multiple hitches. The Webb telescope will be the most powerful ever built – about 100 times more sensitive than Hubble – and is to be deployed on a mission to give astronomers an unprecedented glimpse at the first galaxies that formed in the early universe.
  • Its most recent delay was announced in March, when Nasa said blast off would likely be in May 2020.
