Pompeo to meet Russia's Lavrov amid U.S. concern on  missile sale to SyriaU.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday he expected to meet with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in New York as Washington expressed concern at Moscow's plans to supply the S-300 surface-to-air missile system to Syria. "I'm sure Sergei and I will have our time together," Pompeo said of plans to meet Lavrov on the sidelines of the annual gathering of world leaders at the United Nations. "We are trying to find every place we can where there is common ground, where we can work with the Russians," adding that there were many areas where Moscow was working against the United States and "we will hold them accountable." Russia announced on Monday it will supply a S-300 missile system to Syria in two weeks despite strong Israeli objections, a week after Moscow blamed Israel for indirectly causing the downing of a Russian military plane in Syria.

Britain 'concerned' after Hong Kong bans pro-independence partyThe UK government has demanded China respect the autonomy of Hong Kong after Beijing banned a political party in the city that supports independence from China. “We are concerned by the decision” of the government, the Foreign Office said in a statement. “The UK does not support Hong Kong independence, but Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy and its rights and freedoms are central to its way of life, and it is important they are fully respected.” The ban was instituted on Monday on the grounds that the Hong Kong National Party (HKNP) was found a threat to national security as Beijing continues to stamp out challenges to its sovereignty. It is the first such ban on a political party since the former British colony was handed back to China by the UK in 1997. Police requested the ban in July under the Societies Ordinance, which allows groups to be prohibited in the interests of national security and public safety.  Under the move, it is now illegal to be a party member, raise money for the group and to participate or act on behalf of the organization. Anyone in violation could face up to three years in prison and thousands in fines, according to a government notice posted online. Pro-democracy demonstrations in the special administrative region in 2014 largely failed to usher in political reforms. Since then, activists have continued speaking out. However, pro-independence supporters have been barred from running for office, including Andy Chan, a founding member of HKNP. Others have been disqualified from the legislative council.  The ban came one day after a controversial high-speed rail link opened connecting Beijing to Hong Kong, a move that also stoked concerns about the growing reach of China into the city diminishing its autonomy.

The European Union has failed to design a workable legal shield for its companies in Iran to beat the global reach of the U.S. financial system and defy President Trump, the diplomats say. EU-Iranian trade this year is running at 2 billion euros ($2.35 billion) a month, but this is expected to fall as big European companies pull out and Iranian oil exports are choked off by U.S. sanctions.

What the House of Representatives means in US politics - and how it could change at the midtermsThe House of Representatives is the lower chamber of the US Congress and is made up of 435 seats.  The number of seats each US state receives depends on its population size. California, the most populous state, has 53 representatives while seven states - Alaska, Delaware, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont and Wyoming have just one representative. The Republican Party currently controls the chamber with a 43-seat majority, but it is widely expected that the Democrats will gain control in the upcoming election. The current House has 236 Republicans and 193 Democrats, with six vacant seats.  The Democrats need a net gain of 24 seats to win a majority, which is no small accomplishment, but the president's low approval ratings have given the party reason to hope.  How things could change Historically, the president's party routinely loses House seats in midterms. Indeed the University of Virginia's Centre for Politics points out that the president's party has lost seats in all but three of the 29 midterms held since 1900.   The US economy is booming, with low unemployment rates and rising wages. However some Republicans have been unnerved by Donald Trump's spending . While Mr Trump's tax cuts for corporations was popular among business owners, the country's deficit has increased by 33 per cent in the past year to $895 billion. Donald Trump has been intensively campaigning for Republican candidates across the country Credit: Reuters Mr Trump's approval rating is around the 40 per cent mark - a figure which will not encourage Republicans standing for re-election.  Moreover, a liberal base hoping to derail Mr Trump's agenda has energised Democratic activists in key races, out-fundraising and out-polling a host of Republican incumbents. Political website FiveThirtyEight, has given Democrats an 82 per cent chance of taking control of the House and gaining 38 seats. What will it mean for Donald Trump? If Democrats win the House, they get to decide which bills come to the floor - meaning President Donald Trump's domestic agenda will struggle to make its way into law.  The party with a majority in the chamber also controls its committee chairmanships and has the power to issue subpoenas - so a Democrat-controlled House could enforce aggressive oversight of investigations of the president's administration, including alleged Russia collusion, Trump's business dealings and sexual assault allegations against him. Pundits predict Democrats will launch controversial investigations into things like Mr Trump's tax returns and his previous business dealings. They may also seek public hearings with members of the Trump family, including his son Donald Jr who is a key figure in the Russia investigation.  Rep. Elijah Cummings during a church service with Bill Clinton Credit: AP Democrats on the House oversight committee, the chamber’s main investigative panel, have already suggested they are prepared to issue subpoenas if they gain control. Representative Elijah Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the oversight committee, said: “If Democrats win the majority in November, we would finally do what Republicans have refused to do, and that is conduct independent, fact-based, and credible investigations of the Trump administration". Mr Cummings said their investigations would "address issues like the security clearance process, conflicts of interest, the numerous attempts by Republicans to strip away healthcare from millions of Americans, postal service reforms, prescription drug pricing, and voting rights”.  But if Republicans hold on to the Senate, they will continue to approve Mr Trump's cabinet nominees and appoint conservative judges to US courtrooms. Seats to watch West Virginia Donald Trump won West Virginia's 3rd district by 30 points. But it is the Democratic candidate running in the district, which has a long history of coal mining, that is gaining national attention. Richard Ojeda says he voted for Donald Trump in 2016, opposes universal background checks for gun buyers, and is pro-coal. Mr Ojeda is running against Republican Carol Miller in the open-seat race after the incumbent Republican Evan Jenkins vacated the seat to run for the Senate.  Polling suggests it will be a tight race between the two candidates, but analysts are keeping a close watch to see if a populist Democrat in a pro-Trump area is a winning formula. California Republican Representative Mimi Walters is battling to keep hold of her seat against Democrat Katie Porter in the state's 45th district, Orange County. The number of registered Republicans in the county has consistently declined as its population becomes more diverse. Ms Walters is one of seven Republicans representing districts in California which Hillary Clinton won in 2016. The Democrats need to take several of these in order to have a chance of regaining a majority in the House. Pundits are viewing a win in this race as a sign they will do well across Southern California - picking up crucial Republican-held seats. Professor Larry Sabato from the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics has changed his prediction from 'leaning Republican' to a 'toss-up'. Minnesota Minnesota's 8th district is considered one of the Democrats' most at-risk seats in November. It is a traditionally Democrat area - former president Barack Obama won the district twice but it swung heavily to Donald Trump in the 2016 election. The seat is currently held by Democrat Rick Nolan but the 74-year-old is not seeking re-election. The party's candidate Joe Radinovich, a former state legislator, is facing a tough battle against Republican Pete Stauber, a county commissioner. Texas The race in Texas' 23rd district will largely focus on one of the Trump administration's main concerns - immigration. The district contains a third of the US-Mexico border and has the second highest population of 'Dreamers' - the term given to undocumented migrants who arrived in America as children and have been granted temporary protection. The incumbent, Republican Will Hurd, is a former CIA agent who has chosen to distance himself from Mr Trump. His Democratic rival, Gina Ortiz Jones, is a Filipina-American, openly LGBTQ and an Iraq veteran.  Mr Hurd, who became the first African-American elected to Congress from Texas when he was elected in 2015, is tipped to win by a narrow margin in the swing district.  He has distanced himself from the national Republican party and even wrote an op-ed for the New York Times in July stating that the president had been manipulated by Russian intelligence. Florida Moderate Republicans will be looking to Florida's 26th district to see whether they can keep hold of a largely Hispanic area in the Trump era. The incumbent, Carlos Curbelo, is well-liked but Republicans still fear his Democrat opponent, Latin immigrant Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, could sweep to a surprise victory. Hillary Clinton won the district by 16 points in 2015.

The 2019 Subaru Forester Goes for Mass AppealAs we type this, Subaru is chasing its 82nd consecutive month of year-over-year sales growth. This comes as no surprise to those of us who live and work in Car and Driver’s hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan, where it seems that every other car is an Outback. A brand name that once conjured images of rally racing is now more synonymous with trips to the grocery store, and with this new generation the Forester has lost both its manual transmission and its available turbocharged engine, with no signs that either will make a return.

Brent oil jumps to four-year high near $81Brent oil soared Monday close to $81, reaching the highest level since November 2014 after OPEC and other global producers snubbed pressure from US President Donald Trump to dampen prices. Oil leapt after the world's top producers decided to maintain output during a meeting in Algeria at the weekend. A committee comprised of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) cartel and non-OPEC producers said it was satisfied with the current market outlook, which represented "an overall healthy balance between supply and demand".

Eighteen of those ordered detained were on active duty, Anadolu news agency said, adding the suspects included 13 majors and 12 captains from the land forces and 24 first lieutenants from the navy.

Japan's Hayabusa2 successfully deploys two rovers on the surface of an asteroidIt's just like the movie Armageddon, but without the apocalypse scenario. The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has reason to celebrate after successfully deploying a pair of robots on the surface of an asteroid. The mission, which played out on Friday, aims to gather photos and data from the asteroid called Ryugu. SEE ALSO: Astronaut captures photos of ominous-looking Hurricane Florence from space The mission's success — marking the end of a four-year journey — was confirmed in a tweet on Saturday from JAXA's account for the Hayabusa2 asteroid explorer. We are sorry we have kept you waiting! MINERVA-II1 consists of two rovers, 1a & 1b. Both rovers are confirmed to have landed on the surface of Ryugu. They are in good condition and have transmitted photos & data. We also confirmed they are moving on the surface. #asteroidlanding — HAYABUSA2@JAXA (@haya2e_jaxa) September 22, 2018 A flood of imagery followed as the two hopping rovers — yes, they get around by hopping — set about their important task.  This is a picture from MINERVA-II1. The color photo was captured by Rover-1A on September 21 around 13:08 JST, immediately after separation from the spacecraft. Hayabusa2 is top and Ryugu's surface is below.

Mike Pompeo warns White House staff as he denies Rosenstein wiretapping allegationsMike Pompeo, the US Secretary of State, on Sunday publicly warned administration staff that they needed to either work with the Trump agenda or leave their positions. His comments came after reports that Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, discussed wearing a wire and recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th amendment in the days following the firing of James Comey, the FBI director.  The  25th amendment allows for the removal of the president from office if he or she was deemed unfit to carry out duties. In a thinly-veiled attack raising further questions over whether Mr Trump would fire Mr Rosenstein, Mr Pompeo suggested that White House officials should find "something else to do" if they do not support President Trump's agenda.  "I’ve been pretty clear since my beginning of service here in this administration, if you can’t be on the team, if you’re not supporting this mission, then maybe you ought to find something else to do,” he said. Mr Rosenstein is overseeing the Mueller investigation after Jeff Sessions, left, recused himself from the investigation Credit: SAUL LOEB/ AFP "I’ve told that to my senior colleagues, I’ve told it to junior folks at the CIA, and the State Department; we need everyone who’s engaged in helping achieve President Trump’s mission. "And I hope that everyone in every agency: DOJ, FBI, State Department is on that mission.” "If you’re not, you should take this time to do something more productive," he said. Mr Rosenstein, who is overseeing the Mueller investigation, denied making the comments which were leaked from memos written by Andrew McCabe, the former FBI deputy director. “I never pursued or authorized recording the president, and any suggestion that I have ever advocated for the removal of the president is absolutely false." According to reports, senior Republicans have convinced a furious Mr Trump not to axe Mr Rosenstein, at least until the midterms are over for fear of negative blowback from voters. The GOP is also concerned firing him may further jeopordise the confirmation of  Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court which remains of a knife edge with news that Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused him of sexual assault, will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday. Dr Ford's lawyers last night confirmed the appointment on Sunday night. “We committed to moving forward with an open hearing on Thursday September 27 at 10am,” Dr Ford’s attorneys said in a statement.  A Fox News poll released on Sunday showed support for Mr Trump's pick was wavering among the public with just 40 per cent of voters saying they would confirm, down five per cent from a month ago.
