French environment minister quits: World 'not doing enough'

France's high-profile environment minister unexpectedly announced his resignation live on national radio Tuesday, lamenting the government's lack of decisive action on green issues. The move deals a stinging blow to the environmental credibility of President Emmanuel Macron. Clearly emotional, Nicolas Hulot said he'd not even told his wife, let alone Macron or the prime minister, of his decision to stand down. The long-time environmental advocate lamented France's slow pace of progress on green issues and his own lack of power to force change. His on-air resignation on France Inter radio was so out of the blue that the first reaction...

Fines for sex harassment on streets approved in France

French lawmakers gave final passage Wednesday to a bill that expands the criminal definition of child rape and outlaws sex harassment on the street, measures the government described as a signal of deep social change. The legislation approved in the lower house of the French parliament classifies relations between an adult and a child under age 15 as rape resulting from an "abuse of vulnerability," if the victim lacked the ability to consent. It would be up to a judge to determine whether or not a child was capable of giving sexual consent. The revision followed recent cases that provoked...

Pope and Macron meet at Vatican, discuss migration

Pope Francis and French President Emmanuel Macron held lengthy private talks at the Vatican Tuesday to discuss immigration and to reflect on Europe's prospects amid growing challenges to the continent's unity. Tensions in the European Union over how to share the responsibilities of mass migration are testing the bloc's staying power. Looming over a key EU meeting later this week are clashing views among members on how to handle the crisis caused by the arrival of hundreds of thousands of migrants fleeing conflicts and poverty in the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Francis and Macron spoke for 57 minutes in...

The Latest: France sends asylum team to meet rescue boat

The Latest on the influx of migrants to Europe (all times local): 7:35 p.m. France's Interior Minister says the country's office in charge of asylum will send a team to Spain to identify refugees from the rescue ship Aquarius who could be eligible to come to France. Minister Gerard Collomb's statement on Saturday didn't say how many of the 630 migrants being transferred to Valencia, Spain, from the Aquarius and two Italian government boats might be allowed to come to France. He said Paris' offer to take in some migrants "in need of protection" is meant both to show French...

Summit Day: What happened at historic Trump-Kim meeting?

It was the greatest show on earth — at least for today and according to its main protagonists, President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. That a global audience from Washington to Pyongyang and beyond was agape at such a once inconceivable tete-a-tete in the wake of threats of thermonuclear war and scathing personal insults, is not in doubt. But what substance actually emerged beyond the spectacle? And what other moments were seared into this segment of 21st century history? Here's a look at what happened on Singapore's Sentosa Island on Tuesday: THE SUBSTANCE — After their...

Merkel: G-7 summit with Trump was a 'sobering' experience

German Chancellor Angela Merkel found the contentious Group of Seven summit with U.S. President Donald Trump a "sobering" and "depressing" experience but said European leaders won't be "taken advantage of" on trade. She conceded in an interview on German public television Sunday that the meeting's outcome "wasn't a great thing." "I have spoken of a sobering experience, which for me is a lot," she added. Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and the other leaders clashed with Trump over steel and aluminum tariffs as well as his decision to abandon a deal with Iran to limit its nuclear program. The group...

Macron talks to Trump, says tariffs illegal and a mistake

French President Emmanuel Macron has told U.S. President Donald Trump that the new U.S. tariffs on European, Mexican and Canadian goods are illegal and a "mistake." Macron's office said in a statement Friday that the two presidents spoke by phone after Trump's administration announced the decision Thursday to impose 25 percent tariffs on steel and 10 percent tariffs on aluminum. The European Union is planning retaliatory tariffs on U.S. steel and food goods in the coming weeks, once it calculates the exact cost to European Union companies of the U.S. tariffs. Macron pledged the riposte would be "firm" and "proportionate"...

Trump-Macron tree faces at least 2 years in quarantine

The oak sapling that was a gift to President Donald Trump from French President Emmanuel Macron is facing at least two years in quarantine. The leaders planted the tree on the White House lawn during Macron's state visit in April. But a mystery was spun days later when journalists noticed it had been removed. Macron's office later said the tree was quarantined like other plants or animals brought into the U.S. Macron gave Trump two trees and both are in isolation. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service said this week that at least two years...

Putin: We're held hostage to political strife around Trump

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday bemoaned troubled relations with the United States, saying Russia wants to improve them but is effectively held hostage by the disputes surrounding President Donald Trump. Putin's comments in a meeting with top editors of international news agencies underlined how Russia's once-high hopes for improved relations under Trump have eroded. Although the Trump administration has imposed sanctions on Russia and expelled scores of its diplomats, Russian politicians generally portray Trump as blocked by domestic opposition from fulfilling his campaign promises of improving relations with Moscow. Earlier in the day, speaking at an annual economic forum,...

China's Tencent: Tech world must tackle privacy concerns

China's biggest tech company says the industry needs to tackle users' privacy concerns and the risks posed by advancing technologies. Seng Yee Lau, senior executive vice president of Tencent, also argues that companies and governments must invest more in education, to reduce inequalities and ensure that technologies like online games and social networks don't damage human civilization. "Every single thing that we do in business today, unfortunately or fortunately, we don't just think about the business purpose anymore," he told The Associated Press on Thursday after meeting French President Emmanuel Macron and other tech leaders at a conference in Paris....

Macron says France to resume cooperation with Rwanda

French President Emmanuel Macron has vowed to resume cooperation between France and Rwanda even though relations between the two countries are not yet fully normalized. Following a meeting Wednesday in Paris with Rwandan counterpart Paul Kagame, Macron said "what's important is to build the future" through a pragmatic approach. Relations have been strained in recent years over Rwanda's accusations of French complicity in its 1994 genocide, which France denies. France has had no ambassador to Rwanda since the diplomatic tensions peaked in 2015. Macron said he will support the candidacy of Rwandan Foreign Minister Louise Mushikiwabo to the head of...
