South Korea’s new government has signaled a willingness to consider expanding its use of the U.S.-deployed THAAD missile shield in the face of growing evidence that North Korea is preparing to conduct a nuclear test. The previous South Korean administration of Moon Jae-in opted out of deploying any additional U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile systems as a way to placate China in 2017, when South Korea received the shield. The Moon administration floated the “Three Nos” in October 2017 after Beijing launched a costly campaign of economic retaliation against South Korea. The economic retaliation is believed to continue in some South Korean regions, said President Yoon Suk Yeo's National Security Adviser Kim Sung-han in February during the election campaign, according to Reuters. North Korea has conducted 18 weapons tests this year including multiple ballistic missiles in violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions.

General Mahamat Idriss Deby Itno’s plane took off from N’Djamena airport at around 1230 GMT, an AFP journalist said. Earlier, diplomats and negotiators in Doha said Deby and opposition groups would sign an accord on Monday, opening the way for the rebels to attend a “national inclusive dialogue” on Chad’s future. The ballot would follow a “dialogue” gathering representatives across Chadian society, including its political opposition and constellation of rebel groups. It has been persistently delayed by discord among the dozens of rebel groups locked in talks with the government. A deeply poor country in the heart of the Sahel, Chad has had little stability since gaining independence from France in 1960.

Algeria has taken another unilateral move in its relations with Morocco by pushing forward with the exploitation of a huge iron mine in Tindouf region in total disregard for a 1972 border treaty with Morocco which provided for the shared and equal exploitation of the mine. The pact was interpreted as the price that Morocco accepted for officially giving up claims on Tindouf region-where the mine is located- a historically Moroccan region attached by France to colonial Algeria. So far, Morocco has not made any comment on Algeria’s backtracking on its 1972 border deal. Some commentators now declared the deal void due to Algeria’s unilateral moves, shrouding uncertainty on the validity of the colonial borders themselves. In return, France punished Morocco for its support for the Algerian resistance and for offering a rear base for the Algerian liberation army amputating territories and attaching them to colonial Algeria.

The mayorship of Casablanca issued directives punishing the acts of wasting water in the city of 5 million inhabitants as the country faces an acute water shortage due to climate change and successive droughts. Water scarcity would affect economic growth as the country is expected to post a mere 1.3% growth rate this year, the report added. Morocco plans the setting up of 20 desalination plants by 2030 to deal with water scarcity, water minister Nizar Baraka said in May. The decision will help free dam water for inner regions, he told a panel on water in Marrakech, adding that Morocco currently operates nine desalination plants. Morocco can build on the low cost of renewable energy to power these desalination plants, key to reducing water stress in Morocco.

Suspected jihadists in northern Burkina Faso have killed four soldiers and nine civilian auxiliaries, the army said on Friday. The attack on Thursday by “an armed terrorist group” in Bourzanga district also wounded 10 others, military headquarters said in a statement. Security sources and an official with the auxiliary VDP militia had earlier reported simultaneous attacks in Bourzanga, and given a death toll of three soldiers and nine auxiliaries. The VDP — Volunteers for the Defence of the Fatherland — has borne the brunt of attacks on the security forces. The idea is to have zones that are banned for civilians, giving the armed forces freer range to attack jihadists.
