Korea Sanctions at Anchor in Busan

- President Donald Trump is facing fresh political heat over his relationship with Vladimir Putin over details of a new Russian hacking strike against U.S. democracy that emerged hours after he again cast doubt on Moscow's interference in the 2016 presidential race.

Rostec claims its Avtomatika unit, which specializes in encryption and secure communications, supplies the White House with technology that allows Trump and Putin to communicate privately.

Lavrov's ministry said in a statement that Russian Federation had invited 12 countries, including the United States, to global talks, which come as Moscow is taking a more prominent role on Afghanistan.

Both Republicans and Democrats have criticized Trump, particularly after his Helsinki summit with Putin last month, for failing to stand up to Moscow and not fully enacting a sweeping sanctions law passed almost unanimously a year ago.

President Donald Trump's administration has been warning against the practice for months. Moscow has repeatedly denied attempting to influence USA elections, including the 2016 presidential vote that brought Trump into office.

The Trump administration added to its growing list of sanctions against Russia on Tuesday, blacklisting two companies and two individuals suspected of trying to circumvent earlier US sanctions imposed in June in response to cyberattacks, and sanctioning two Russian shipping companies for suspected trade with North Korea.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said in a statement Tuesday that the move reflects a "hardheaded, narrow-minded and aggressive approach by the U.S".

His speech later on Tuesday will also outline other threats that Britain sees to the global order, including telling China that "with economic power comes political responsibility", and criticising their inaction over Crimea and chemical weapons.

LABOUR yesterday warned against Jeremy Hunt's calls for tougher sanctions against Russian Federation yesterday.

Mr Hunt, speaking ahead of a major speech in the U.S., said that, in the wake of the Salisbury and Amesbury attacks, it was his desire to strengthen alliances to ensure that nations "considering whether to cross red lines actually think again".

The US Treasury Department has announced sanctions on several individuals and entities over their involvement with Russian Federation and North Korea.

"Our British counterparts have pretty high self-esteem", he said.

"The risk of a messy divorce, as opposed to the friendship we seek, would be a fissure in relations between European allies that would take a generation to heal - a geostrategic error for Europe at an extremely vulnerable time in our history", he said.
