EU parliament pushes Hungary sanctions over PM Orban policies

Strasbourg: The European Parliament voted on Wednesday to sanction Hungary for flouting EU rules on democracy, civil rights and corruption in an unprecedented step that left Prime Minister Viktor Orban isolated from powerful allies.Hungary said it would seek legal ways to challenge the 448-197 vote it described as "petty revenge".Delivering more than the two-thirds majority required as many of Orban's allies in the conservative party deserted him, the vote, however, has little chance of ending up with the ultimate penalty of Hungary being suspended from voting in the EU.If nothing else, its Polish ally would veto that. But the 197...

What to expect from the UN General Assembly

President Trump joins dozens of world leaders in New York this week for the United Nations General Assembly, a jam-packed series of diplomatic meetings and speeches. It's no longer Trump's first time at the U.N., so the questions of what kind of impact he'll have on this world stage have evaporated. But they've been replaced by what could be a dramatic week of jockeying in a world disrupted by Trump, with both American allies and adversaries scrambling to reshape relationships and fend for themselves. It's also a world largely more peaceful, but torn apart in different regions by civil wars...
