In a stinging defeat for Britain, the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly demanded Wednesday that London cede to Mauritius the British-ruled Chagos Islands, home to an important military base. The Indian Ocean archipelago has been at the center of a decades-long dispute over Britain's decision to separate it from Mauritius in 1965 and set up a joint military base with the US on Diego Garcia, the largest of the islands. A total of 116 countries voted in favor of a non-binding resolution presented by African countries that urged Britain to «withdraw its colonial administration» from the Chagos Islands within six months. Only six countries, including Britain and the United States, voted against the measure in the 193-nation assembly while 56 others abstained, including Canada, France and Germany. Fifteen countries did not vote. The vote came three months after the International Court of Justice handed Mauritius a victory when it said in a legal opinion that Britain had illegally split the islands and should give up control of the Chagos. After Britain rejected that ruling, Mauritius turned to the United Nations. The resolution decides that the United Nations and its agencies shall recognize Mauritius's sovereignty over the Chagos Islands and calls on all governments «not to recognize, support or abet the unlawful colonial administration» in the Chagos. Resolutions adopted by the General Assembly are not legally binding, but they do carry political weight. - Keeping the world safe - Taking the UN podium, Britain argued that the dispute was a bilateral matter and stressed that it had opposed the move to seek the ICJ legal opinion. British Ambassador Karen Pierce said the Diego Garcia military base «plays a vital role in keeping allies and friends -- including Mauritius -- in the region and beyond safe and secure.» The United States has sent fighter jets from Diego Garcia to bomb Afghanistan and Iraq. The facility was used as a CIA interrogation center after the September 11, 2001 attacks. In 2016, Britain renewed a lease agreement with the United States for the use of Diego Garcia until 2036. Richard Gowan, UN director for the International Crisis Group, described the vote as «an embarrassing moment for the UK» as Britain seeks to show that it remains an influential global player post-Brexit. African countries sought to frame the dispute over the Chagos as an issue of decolonization. Addressing the assembly ahead of the vote, Mauritius Prime Minister Pravind Kumar Jugnauth said UN member states must send «a clear signal to the world that colonialism can no longer be tolerated.» Australia, Hungary, Israel and the Maldives voted «no» alongside Britain and the United States. The vast majority of European countries abstained except for Spain which backed the resolution as did Russia and China. It was the second time in two years that Britain has had to defend its rule of the Chagos Islands at the United Nations. In 2017, only 15 countries including Britain and the US voted to oppose a request for the ICJ ruling. © Agence France-Presse

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and Opposition leader Adrian Delia debated abortion, the environment, and migration, among a myriad of other issues in a final TV showdown on Wednesday ahead of the European elections. The two leaders largely stuck to their respective campaign messages but Dr Muscat appeared to be more confrontational than he had been in previous debates with Dr Delia. Moderator Mario Xuereb rang in the first round with a toughly worded question on abortion for Dr Delia. The PN, Mr Xuereb said, appeared to be approaching the election as one it knew it would lose. Dr Delia was raising the spectre of abortion, but this could not be imposed by the EU, could it? And, by framing the election as a referendum on abortion, surely he had just played into the pro-choice camp’s hands, since it was an open secret he would not be winning this poll? Replying, Dr Delia said the PN had clear proposals for both the EP and the local council elections, giving a brief overview. Turning to abortion, he said the PN was adamantly “in favour of life”. On the other hand, the European socialists were calling for the introduction of a “right to abortion”. The Labour Party, having endorsed...
The 2022 World Cup in Qatar will be played with 32 teams after a proposed expansion of the tournament to 48 sides was scrapped, FIFA announced on Wednesday. World football's governing body said in a statement that «following a thorough and comprehensive consultation process with the involvement of all the relevant stakeholders, it was concluded that under the current circumstances such a proposal could not be made now». «(The tournament) will therefore remain as originally planned with 32 teams and no proposal will be submitted at the next FIFA Congress on 5 June,» FIFA added. An announcement of the final decision hadn't been expected until the congress, which is being held in Paris ahead of the Women's World Cup. FIFA president Gianni Infantino had supported the increase in the size of the tournament. However the statement said that the study «concluded that due to the advanced stage of preparations and the need for a detailed assessment of the potential logistical impact on the host country, more time would be required and a decision could not be taken before the deadline of June». That led to FIFA dropping the idea, despite the organisation recommending in March that the...
