EU must play global role in virus crisis, says Merkel

first_img“Of course I’m aware that the cooperation with America is currently more difficult than we’d like,” Merkel said, pointing to differences with President Donald Trump’s administration on trade, climate change and the importance of international bodies like the World Health Organization. Nevertheless, she said the transatlantic relationship was a “key pillar” of Europe’s foreign policy and security interests that needed to be upheld and strengthened.Germany had initially planned to put relations with China at the center of its six-month EU Council presidency before the pandemic pushed its way to the top of the agenda.The German leader, who is in the twilight of her chancellorship, said it was important for the bloc to maintain “constructive dialogue” with the increasingly assertive Asian giant — seen as both a vital trading partner and a major rival.The European Union has “a great strategic interest” in working with China and “actively shaping” the relationship, Merkel said.The chancellor said she would push for progress on a long-sought investment agreement with Beijing, aimed at leveling the playing field between Chinese and European firms, as well as tackling climate and health issues. Topics : German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday said the European Union should take more global responsibility in the coronavirus crisis, especially as ties with the United States were currently “difficult”.In a speech outlining Germany’s priorities when it takes over the EU’s rotating presidency in July, Merkel said the economic and social upheaval from the pandemic has turned the world upside down.She welcomed the European Commission’s proposed 750 billion euro coronavirus recovery fund for the bloc but said more should be done to help other countries.center_img “Especially in times of crisis I want the European Union to show solidarity on a global level too and take on more responsibility,” she told the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung think tank by video link.”In many places, the pandemic will intensify existing conflicts and problems and will therefore also become a stress test for the European Union.”She called on the bloc to speak up for the values of “democracy, freedom and the protection of human dignity”.Europe could not tackle the world’s problems alone, however, and she said the United States remained Europe’s “most important partner”.last_img read more

The protections under the executive orders apply to state employees and, for the first time, employees of businesses contracted by the state.“What happened in North Carolina, and what is going on in other states, should be a call to pass non-discrimination legislation in Pennsylvania now,” the governor said. “We must show that Pennsylvania is the place that William Penn envisioned when he founded our commonwealth on the principle that it is open, diverse, and inclusive for all people”Since the signing of the orders, Governor Wolf has received support and praise from a number of organizations who share his goal to have anti-discrimination legislation passed statewide and ensure protection for all Pennsylvanians.Take a look at the statements:ACLU: ACLU of Pennsylvania Applauds Governor Wolf for Expansion of Non-Discrimination Protections“This is an issue of fundamental fairness,” said Reggie Shuford, executive director of the ACLU of Pennsylvania. “To be competitive in a 21st century economy, Pennsylvania workers need to know that they have protection in their place of employment. We are grateful that Governor Wolf has shown leadership on this issue.”Anti-Defamation League: ADL Praises Governor Tom Wolf for Expanding Non-Discrimination Protections for LGBT Pennsylvanians“We offer our heartfelt thanks to Governor Wolf for expanding non-discrimination protections for LGBT Pennsylvanians,” said Nancy K.

Reds seek answers on Sturridge

first_img “I know what I need to do, know where I need have to go and I know where I want to be as well so for me it is important to just continue and look forward to the future.” While he was in America for his last spell Sturridge had brief exchanges with Rodgers but the striker insists he did not feel he required any additional emotional support as he underwent rehabilitation. “He (Rodgers) text messaged me and we would speak now and again but I was just over there getting myself ready,” added Sturridge. “I am mentally strong – I don’t really need to have conversations with anyone.” The England international, who has made just 18 appearances in a season blighted by a number of fitness problems, has flown to America to see Dr Peter Asnis, an orthopaedic surgeon connected to club owners Fenway Sports Group’s other major acquisition the Boston Red Sox, in an attempt to solve his current hip injury. It is the second time this campaign the 25-year-old has visited the States in an attempt to cure his fitness problems having spent a month there in December to undergo rehabilitation for a thigh problem which, combined with a calf injury, sidelined him for five months. “I think we have found some underlying issues that maybe relate to Daniel’s issues and problems this season and the ongoing problems he’s had, so the medical team here, liaising with some of the medics in America, are doing everything we possibly can to give Daniel every opportunity to stay consistently fit and available,” Rodgers said. Asked whether part of Sturridge’s problems were mental, Rodgers added: “I’m not sure. Daniel is like every other player – he wants to play and be available. “It is just unfortunate for him. If you look at his career he’s had little issues along the way but when we brought him here we knew we wanted to give him every chance to be one of the top goalscorers in Europe. “We have to do everything we can to get him on the training field and into the game, hence the reason for looking into the issue.” Last month Sturridge spoke to Press Association Sport about his fitness issues this season. Two of the things he was keen to stress were how psychologically sound he was and how the experience of being sidelined for so long had benefited him in a different way. “Every season you learn something new and this season I have learned you have to be mentally strong and I am mentally strong so I’ve learned a new lesson,” he said. “Next season there will be a new lesson to learn. You are never too old to learn. You can be 35 and still learn something new when you are playing football. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admits their primary aim is to get striker Daniel Sturridge consistently fit and that is why they have sent him to the United States for further assessment.
