Petersburger Dialog: „Chance auf normalere Phase der Beziehungen“ – Pofalla (Sputnik)

Als einziges offizielles Dialogforum in Zeiten der Sanktionen trägt der Petersburger Dialog besondere Verantwortung, wie Ronald Pofalla, deutscher Co-Vorsitzender des deutsch-russischen Gremiums, sagt: „Wir haben die Chance, die unterschiedlichen Positionen auszutauschen und dafür zu werben, wenigstens die andere Position zu verstehen.“

In einem Interview für die Nachrichtenagentur RIA Novosti im Vorfeld der Tagung des Dialogs sagte Pofalla:

„Wir sind in einer Phase, die wahrscheinlich als die schwierigste seit 1990 angesehen werden kann. Und dennoch haben wir die Chance, wenn wesentliche Teile des Minsk-2-Abkommens umgesetzt werden können, wieder in eine normalere Phase der Beziehungen zurückzukommen.“

French Ministers Calls on Citizens to Become Reservists (teleSUR)

His call comes after a cascade of criticisms against the government for failing to prevent a wave of terrorist attacks.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve urged French civilians Saturday to join the military reserves to help the country tackle a wave of terrorist attacks that have befalled France in recent months.

„I want to call on all French patriots who wish to do so, to join this operational reserve,“ said Cazeneuve adding that France’s „operational reservists“ include French citizens with or without military experience as well as former soldiers.

His call comes after many French citizens have criticized the government for not doing more to protect innocent bystanders.

Meanwhile French President Francois Hollande said Friday that reservists would be called upon to boost the ranks of police and gendarmes.

The operational reserve is currently made up of 12,000 volunteers, 9,000 of whom are within the paramilitary police and 3,000 in the regular police force, said Cazeneuve.

„We are going to reinforce the presence of security forces across the country,“ he added.

He said the number of security forces deployed to protect the population was nearly 100,000, including 53,000 police, 36,000 para-military police and 10,000 soldiers

Turkish Coup Plotted to Stop Mending of Russia-Turkey Ties – Serbian FM (Sputnik)

The coup attempt in Turkey was masterminded by forces that were seeking to halt the restoration of good relations between Turkey and Russia, the acting Serbian foreign minister said Sunday. „I am sure that the coup [in Turkey] has a lot of influences from the outside…. It is now clear that the Russian plane was taken down by the pilot who belonged to the same group as those behind the coup, and now that Turkey renewed its ties with Russia, it clearly did not suit someone,“ Ivica Dacic said as quoted by b92 broadcaster.

Turkey turmoil: Foreign plot or staged coup (Press TV)

Some of the soldiers detained in Turkey have reportedly told interrogators they were not aware they were part of a coup attempt.
The most dramatic fallout from the event, however, was suggestions by Turkish state officials that the US was involved in the failed coup.
The accusations by Labor and Social Security Minister Suleyman Soylu, in an interview on Turkish TV, forced US Secretary of State John Kerry Turkish to call Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu and warn that those claims could harm ties.
