Hariri says free in Saudi will return home soon

first_imgAn image grab taken from the Hariri family-owned Lebanese channel, Future TV shows Lebanon’s resigned prime minister Saad Hariri speaking during an interview from Riyadh. AFP file photoSaad Hariri, whose resignation as Lebanon’s prime minister a week ago sent shockwaves across the region, said Sunday he is “free” in Saudi Arabia and will return to Lebanon “very soon”.In an interview from Riyadh with his party’s Future TV, Hariri brushed aside rumours that he was under de facto house arrest in the kingdom, from which he announced his surprise departure.“I am free here. If I want to travel tomorrow, I will,” Hariri said.“I will return to Lebanon very soon,” Hariri said, adding later that he would land in Beirut “in two or three days”.Hariri, 47, announced he was stepping down from his post in a televised address on November 4 from Riyadh, and has yet to return to his native Lebanon.However, Lebanese President Michel Aoun has yet to formally accept his resignation and said the premier has been “restricted” in his movements.Hariri’s surprise resignation came as tensions rise between Riyadh and Tehran, which back opposing sides in power struggles from Lebanon and Syria to Yemen.At the time, Hariri accused Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah of taking over his country and destabilising the broader region.“We cannot continue in Lebanon in a situation where Iran interferes in all Arab countries, and that there’s a political faction that interferes alongside it,” he repeated on Sunday in apparent reference to rival movement Hezbollah.“Maybe there’s a regional conflict between Arab countries and Iran. We’re a small country. Why put ourselves in the middle?”‘Rescind resignation’Wearing a suit and tie and with a Lebanese flag in the background, the former premier looked tired on Sunday and spoke softly but firmly throughout the interview.Hariri, who also holds Saudi citizenship, told journalist Paula Yaacoubian that he wrote his resignation himself and wanted to submit it in Lebanon, “but there was danger”.He also appeared to lay down an exit strategy, saying he would be willing to “rescind the resignation” if intervention in regional conflicts stopped.“We need to respect the disassociation policy,” Hariri said, referring to an agreement among Lebanese political factions that they would not interfere in Syria’s six-year war.He appeared to be alluding to Hezbollah’s military intervention on behalf of the Syrian government, to which Hariri is opposed.Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah said Friday that Hariri was “detained in Saudi Arabia, he is banned from returning to Lebanon”.‘Excellent’ ties with SaudiHariri has spent the past week in a string of meetings with diplomats and Saudi officials in Riyadh, including an encounter with Saudi King Salman.He left the kingdom once for a trip to Abu Dhabi.In his interview on Sunday, Hariri said he has “excellent” ties with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in an apparent effort to put to rest rumours that the Saudi crown prince had pressured him to step down.“Really, I consider him a brother and he considers me a brother. It’s an excellent and special relationship,” he said.But he refused to comment on the internal political turmoil in Saudi Arabia, where dozens of high-profile politicians and businessmen have been arrested in what authorities say is an anti-graft drive.The two-time premier’s father Rafik made his fortune in Saudi Arabia and also served as premier for years before he was assassinated in 2005.Saad cited fears for his life when he resigned from his post last week, less than a year after his unity government was formed with Hezbollah.Lebanese have expressed concern that the move could thrust the country into a political and economic tailspin, as it remains unclear who could replace Hariri.Western countries moved quickly to express their support for the premier, with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson calling him a “strong partner”.Tillerson warned against “any party, within or outside Lebanon, using Lebanon as a venue for proxy conflicts or in any manner contributing to instability in that country”.last_img read more

The artists’ interpretation of their work is grounded in the belief that ‘The people of Africa have created an extraordinary cultural heritage, deeply embedded in a beautiful yet fragile physical environment’. The colors in the art work are bright and bold in shades of red, ochre-yellow and ebony black.To celebrate the fun spirit, feast upon the acrobatic experience that blends circus arts with the surreal to create a world where physical strength rubs shoulders with the dare devil acts. The Jambo acrobats are backed by foot thumping Afro Caribbean music. Two acrobats each holding on to large rings that suddenly make them airborne, with a third one reaching out for them to add drama. They toss their spinning props across the stage to one another. And just when you think this is over the top, they amaze you with a finale that is probably, for anyone else on earth, impossible to perform. Look out for choreographed entertainment as you watch jugglers performing tricks and catching tossing balls in seconds. The multimedia displays are magnificent, followed by acts of bottle balancing. The magnificent and daring act is performed effortlessly under the limbo pole- the height of a beer bottle. While Capital drowns in an African cultural fiesta, dig in for your share of fun and frolic.last_img read more

GitLab 117 releases with multilevel child epics API integration with Kubernetes search

first_imgYesterday, the team at Gitlab released GitLab 11.7, an application for the DevOps lifecycle that helps the developer teams work together efficiently to secure their code. GitLab 11.7 comes with features like multi-level child epics, API integration with Kubernetes, cross-project pipeline and more. What’s new in GitLab 11.7 Managing releases with GitLab 11.7 This version of GitLab eliminates the need for manual collection of source code, build output, or metadata associated with a released version of the source code. GitLab 11.7 comes with releases in GitLab Core which helps users to have release snapshots that include the source code and related artifacts. Multi-level child epics for work breakdown structures This release comes with multi-level child epics in GitLab portfolio management which allow users to create multi-level work breakdown structures. It also helps in managing complex projects and work plans. This structure builds a direct connection between planning and actionable issues. Users can now have an epic containing both issues and epics. Streamlining JavaScript development with NPM registries This release also delivers NPM registries in GitLab Premium that provides a standard and secure way to share and version control NPM packages across projects. Users can then share a package-naming convention for utilizing libraries in any Node.js project and NPM. Remediating vulnerabilities GitLab 11.7 helps users to remediate vulnerabilities in the apps and suggest a solution for Node.js projects managed with Yarn. Users can download a patch file, and apply it to their repo using the git apply command. They can then push changes back to their repository and the security dashboard will then confirm if the vulnerability is gone. This process is easy and reduces the time required to deploy a solution. API integration with Kubernetes This release comes with API support to Kubernetes integration. All the actions that are available in the GUI currently, such as listing, adding, and deleting a Kubernetes cluster are now accessible with the help of the API. Developers can use this feature to fold in cluster creation as part of their workflow. Cross-project pipeline With this release, it is now possible to expand upstream or downstream cross-project pipelines from the pipeline view. Users can view the pipelines across projects. Search filter box for issue board navigation This release comes with a search filter that makes navigation much easier. Users can simply type a few characters in the search filter box to narrow down to the issue board they are interested in. Project list redesign Project list UI is redesigned in GitLab 11.7 and mainly focuses on readability and summary of the project’s activity. Import issues CSV This release makes transitions easier. Users can now import issues into GitLab while managing their existing work. This feature works with Jira or any other issue tracking system that can generate a CSV export. Support catch-all email mailboxes This release supports sub-addressing and catch-all email mailboxes with a new email format that allows more email servers to be used with GitLab, including Microsoft Exchange and Google Groups. Include CI/CD files from other projects and templates With this release, users can now include their snippets of configuration from other projects and predefined templates. This release also includes snippets for specific jobs, like sast or dependency_scanning, so users can use them instead of copying and pasting the current definition. GitLab Runner 11.7 The team at GitLab also released GitLab Runner 11.7 yesterday. It is an open source project that is used to run CI/CD jobs and send the results back to GitLab. Major improvements In GitLab 11.7, the performance of viewing merge requests has been improved by caching syntax highlighted discussion diffs. Push performance has been improved by skipping pre-commit validations that have passed on other branches. Redundant counts in snippets search have been removed. This release comes with Mattermost 5.6, an open source Slack-alternative that includes interactive message dialogs, new admin tools, Ukrainian language support, etc. Users are generally happy with GitLab 11.7 release. One of the users who has been using GitLab for quite some time now is waiting for MR[0]. They commented on Hacker News, “I’m impatiently waiting for this MR [0] that will allow dependant containers to also talk to each other. It’s the last missing piece for my ideal CI setup.” To which, GitLab’s product manager for Verify (CI) replied, “Thanks for bringing this up I hadn’t seen your contribution! I think this is a great idea. I know the technical team has been overwhelmed with community contributions as of late – which is a good problem to have but one that we’re still solving. I’m going to try and shepherd this one along myself.” Some users think if GitLab can pull off the npm registry well, then this might prove to be the beginning of a universal package management server built into Gitlab. One of the comments reads, “Gitlab API is amazingly simple and flexible, can be used efficiently from the terminal to list CI jobs, your issues, edit them.” Users are also comparing GitLab with GitHub, where some users are supporting GitHub. One user commented, “GitLab’s current homepage hides their actual site (the repositories) and makes it hard as a developer to actually get started compared to Github.” Another user commented, “We’ve started using Gitlab where I work and it’s so much better than GitHub.” Users are also facing issues with memory optimization. One of the comments reads, “I like GitLab but noticed my Docker container running it is steadily requiring more memory to run smoothly. It’s sitting at 12GB right now, which is a little too high for my taste. I wish there were ways to reduce this.” Read Next Introducing GitLab Serverless to deploy cloud-agnostic serverless functions and applications GitLab 11.5 released with group security and operations-focused dashboard, control access to GitLab pages GitLab 11.4 is here with merge request reviews and many more featureslast_img read more
