5 noteworthy developments from around the world over the course of the night




Here is a round-up of the most significant developments taking place around the world right now.


The United States is scrambling to limit the fallout from the Indo-Pacific agreement


The United States referred to France as a "vital partner in the Indo-Pacific," comments that appeared to be intended to assuage French resentment following the signing of a deal by the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom to supply Australia with submarines.


Because the agreement, which is intended to counter China's growing influence in the Indo-Pacific, replaces a lucrative deal that the country had signed with Australia to build a new submarine fleet worth $40 billion, France has expressed displeasure with the agreement.


Joe Biden's approval rating drops to its lowest point in his presidency


According to the most recent Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll, public approval of US President Joe Biden has dropped to its lowest point in his presidency, with Americans appearing to be increasingly critical of his response to the coronavirus pandemic. The poll, which was conducted on September 15-16, found that 44 percent of adults in the United States approved of Biden's performance in office, while 50 percent disapproved and the remaining 20 percent were unsure.


Afghanistan's finance ministry is working to ensure that public sector salaries are paid on time


As Afghanistan's new Taliban administration struggles to restart the country's stalled economy, the finance ministry said on Thursday that the government is working to resolve a series of issues that have caused salaries for public sector workers to be held up for several months. Numerous public sector employees reported that they had not been paid in weeks even before the movement took control of Kabul last month. With banks imposing strict limits on cash withdrawals at a time when prices for basic necessities are rising, many are facing serious hardship.


Somalia's president has suspended the prime minister's executive powers


Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed announced on Thursday that he had revoked the powers of Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble, effective immediately. The decision is the most recent development in a bitter dispute that has thrown the country into a state of constitutional crisis, as previously reported.
