European Council President Charles Michel said that a "national inclusive dialogue with the support of the OSCE is the only realistic path" forward for Belarus, which has been gripped by protests in recent weeks, during his pre-recorded speech at the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly on Friday. Michel also said that the latest presidential elections in Belarus were "rigged" and that the outcome was not acknowledged by the EU, saying: "We stand alongside the Belarusian people who have to be free, without any outside influence, to decide for themselves their own future." He added that the EU is concerned with the situation in the Eastern Mediterranean, where there are heightened tensions between Greece, Cyprus and Turkey due to disputes over exclusive economic zones. "The European Union is concerned by the tensions in Eastern Mediterranean. Unilateral actions, breaches of international law must absolutely be stopped," he said. The EU Council president further explained that a multilateral conference to discuss the matter is being prepared. "Numerous partners confirmed their participation and are ready to discuss the various plans put forward," he confirmed. Michel also took the opportunity to pay tribute to victims of COVID-19 and the healthcare professionals on the medical battlefield, confirming that in Europe "more than 142,000 people have lost their lives."

4. UN: Palestine's Abbas calls for international conference to launch 'real peace process'19:49[−]
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called on the UN to hold an international conference in 2021 in order to achieve “real peace” in the Middle East during his speech at the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly on Friday. "I call for the Secretary-General of the United Nations, in cooperation with the Quartet and the Security Council, to begin arrangements for holding an international conference with full powers, with the participation of all concerned parties, starting from the beginning of next year," Abbas said, adding that the conference's aim would be "engaging in a real peace process based on international law, international legitimacy, and in a way that leads to an end to the occupation and the freedom of the Palestinian people and the independence of their state with East Jerusalem as its capital on the 1967 borders." Abbas also rejected the peace agreements signed between Israel, the UAE and Bahrain, and dubbed it "a violation of the Arab Peace Initiative and said, “the only way to lasting, comprehensive and just peace in our region is to end the occupation and embody the independence of the State of Palestine on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital." The Palestinian President also called the Secretary-General of the United Nations to hold an international conference "with the aim of engaging in a real peace process based on international law, international legitimacy, and in a way that leads to an end to the occupation and the freedom of the Palestinian people and the independence of their state with East Jerusalem as its capital." The Israel-Bahrain treaty was signed on Wednesday, September 16 and established diplomatic ties between the two countries following a previous peace deal signed between Israel and the UAE earlier this month. The agreements have triggered a severe backlash in parts of the Arab world including in the state of Palestine.

5. USA: Ruth Bader Ginsburg becomes first woman to lie in state in US Capitol19:20[−]
The US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg became the first woman to lie in state in the United States Capitol in Washington DC on Friday. A group of servicemen pallbearers carried the coffin to the US Capitol up the stairs, as dozens of onlookers watched from a distance. On Wednesday, September 23, a similar ceremony was held at the Supreme Court. The service included Ginsburg’s body lying in repose under the building’s portico to allow for public viewing outdoors. Chief Justice William Howard Taft, who also was president, is the only other justice to be accorded the honour of lying in state at the Capitol. Taft died in 1930, shortly after work began on the site where the Supreme Court would open in 1935. Ginsburg died at her home in Washington DC of complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer, aged 87, on Friday, September 18. She served on the court for 27 years after being appointed in 1993 by President Bill Clinton.

7. USA: Shops vandalised in Louisville after another night of unrest over Breonna Taylor ruling18:48[−]
A shop was burnt down and vandalised amid another night of unrest in Louisville as could be seen on Friday morning. Demonstrators and activists took to the streets again on Thursday night following a grand jury’s decision not to bring homicide charges against police officers involved in the deadly shooting of Breonna Taylor, which took place in the city on March 13, 2020. According to the mayor's office, 24 people were arrested following the night's protests. Two police officers were shot and wounded during the demonstrations on Wednesday. Mayor Greg Fischer has extended the curfew through the weekend in anticipation of more protests in the coming days. On Wednesday, a Kentucky grand jury decided not to bring homicide charges against police officers involved in the killing of Taylor. The ruling sparked protests all over the US. 26-year-old Taylor was killed while sleeping in her bed in on March 13, after police officers broke into her apartment under a 'no-knock warrant' suspecting her to be part of a drug ring. The woman was eventually shot eight times as the officers exchanged gunshots with her boyfriend.

9. USA: 'None of us were surprised, that’s what’s even more devastating' – LeBron James on Breonna Taylor ruling18:16[−]
LeBron James spoke out on a grand jury's refusal to charge the officers involved in Breonna Taylor's death. The NBA star made his remarks in a press conference in Orlando, on Thursday, following his Los Angeles Lakers 114-108 win on Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Denver Nuggets. James said that the players were devastated but did not discuss walking out of Game 4 after the ruling. "We just wanted to be there for our brother Do [Los Angeles Lakers player Rajon Rondo]. Because as much as it's devastating to us, you can only imagine it happening in your backyard. And Do being from Louisville, we knew how tough it had to be on him and his family and the locals there. So, no we didn't discuss that [not playing Game Four] not one bit, but we can't say that we were surprised at the verdict. None of us were surprised. That's what's even more devastating. That none of us were surprised what the outcome was," LeBron James said. "Breonna Taylor's case showed it once again that the walls of a neighbour are more important than her life," James said, before sharing a message of support for all black women around the world, saying: "You're not alone." On Wednesday, a Kentucky grand jury decided not to bring homicide charges against police officers involved in the killing of Breonna Taylor. The ruling sparked protests all over the US. 26-year-old Taylor was killed while sleeping in her bed in on March 13, after police officers broke into her apartment under a 'no-knock warrant' suspecting her to be part of a drug ring. The woman was eventually shot eight times as the officers exchanged gunshots with her boyfriend.
