Section break ---- C*News Intro I'm ... w/ the top of the hour news ..... ---- E*EZ NEWS OCTOBER 8, 2019 ---- E*US State Department Official to Attends Pacific Islands Dialogue The inaugural Pacific Islands Dialogue is underway (進行) in Taipei. The event is being attended by U-S Senior Official for APEC and Deputy Assistant Secretary for Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands, Sandra Oudkirk. And speaking at the opening ceremony, Oudkirk said she is in Taipei "representing President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the U-S has been partners with the Pacific since World War II, and is in the Pacific to stay." American Institute in Taiwan Director William Brent Christensen also attended the ceremony. He praised (稱讚) Taiwan's proactive role in the Indo-Pacific region as seen in its contributions to various regional initiatives. The government says the talks are a way for the U-S, Taiwan, and like-minded partners to explore ways to increase cooperation to meet the development needs of Taiwan's diplomatic partners in the Pacific. ---- E*Another Chinese National Accused of Tearing down Pro-Hong Kong Messages Another Chinese national is facing charges of vandalizing an on campus message board in support of the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. The latest incident took place at National Taiwan University in Taipei. Police arrested and questioned the Chinese national. The Taipei District Prosecutor's Office is now investigating the case. The Chinese national could face charges of destruction, abandonment, and damage (損害) of property under the Criminal Code. Similar (類似) incidents have been reported at four other universities in recent weeks. ---- E*Exports See September Decline And ....... Taiwan's exports for September fell 4.6-per cent from a year earlier, reversing a 2.8-per cent gain seen in August. The government says this is caused by a struggling (掙扎) global economy hurt by the trade war between China and the United States. According to the Ministry of Finance, September's exports totaled 28.1-billion U-S dollars. While imports hit 24.97-billion U-S dollars for the month, down 0.6-per cent, leaving a trade surplus of 3.13-billion U-S dollars. ---- E*Trump defends Syria decision, says there must be end game U-S President Trump is defending his decision to pull back U.S. troops in northern Syria, something sharply criticized (被批評) by top GOP allies. AP Washington correspondent Sagar Meghani reports from the White House. < [CLIP] Slug: > ---- E*Pullback of Forces in Ukraine's Rebel East is Delayed Ukraine's foreign minister says a planned pullback of forces in the rebel east has been delayed because of recent skirmishes (小衝突). Ukraine and Russia-backed separatist rebels have agreed to pull their forces from the front line in two areas starting yesterday to create a safe buffer zone (緩衝區). But Ukraine's Foreign Minister says the move has been postponed due to recent shelling by separatists. More than 13,000 people have been killed in the five-year conflict between Ukrainian troops and Russia-backed rebels. France and Germany brokered a 2015 peace agreement giving wide autonomy for the rebel east and holding a local election there, but the deal has stalled. Ukraine's newly elected President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has pushed for the vote in the east, but says a lasting cease-fire must come first. ---- E*Brazil Says More Than 100 Tons of Oil Spills Found On Coast Brazil's environment minister says more than 100 tons of oil has been spilled along the northeastern coast since the beginning of September. The minister said on Twitter that 42 cities have been affected by the spills. Brazilian police are investigating where the oil came from. The spills have killed at least seven turtles and forced swimmers and fishermen to stay away from contaminated areas. State-run oil giant company Petrobras said last week that the spilled oil isn't the type it produces. Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro is expected to receive a preliminary assessment on the spills this week. ---- C*News Outro That was the I-C-R-T news Check in again tomorrow for our simplified version of the news, uploaded every day in the afternoon.
