New Zealand's 'First Baby' Neve makes history with United Nations debut alongside Jacinda Ardern
News ImageNew Zealands so-called First Baby - the three-month-old daughter of prime minister Jacinda Ardern - has made her debut on the international political stage, appearing at a peace summit at the United Nations with her mother. Ms Ardern kissed Neve Te Aroha before addressing the summit, during which the baby was held by Clarke Gayford, Ms Arderns partner. Mr Gayford sent an image of his daughters United Nations security pass, which playfully listed her title as First Baby. "Because everyone on Twitter's been asking to see Neve's UN ID, staff here whipped one up," he wrote. "I wish I could have captured the startled look on a Japanese delegation inside the UN yesterday who walked into a meeting room in the middle of a nappy change. Great yarn for her 21st." Because everyone on twitter's been asking to see Neve's UN id, staff here whipped one up. I wish I could have captured the startled look on a Japanese delegation inside UN yesterday who walked into a meeting room in the middle of a nappy change. Great yarn for her 21st. Clarke Gayford (@NZClarke) September 24, 2018 Ms Ardern, 38, is her countrys youngest leader and the first to take maternity leave. She is only the second leader in modern history to give birth while in office, after Pakistan's Benazir Bhutto in 1990. Ms Ardern said she and her partner made a very practical decision to take Neve with them into the United Nations summit in New York. Neve is actually nearby me most of the time in New Zealand, she's just not always caught, she said.

A United Nations spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, said the organisation was delighted to see Neve in the General Assembly hall. Prime Minister Ardern is showing that no one is better qualified to represent her country than a working mother, he said. Just five percent of the worlds leaders are women, so we need to make them as welcome here as possible. Jacinda Ardern addresses the Nelson Mandela Peace Summit Credit: TIMOTHY A. CLARY/AFP Ms Ardern has been feted by the United States media during her visit and appeared on NBCs Today Show shortly after her arrival. She joked that taking her daughter on a seventeen-hour flight at the time felt on par with running the country. "But between Clarke and I we managed it," she said. "You don't know until you are there of course, but [motherhood] has met my expectations, the joy though has far surpassed my expectations."

As U.S. sanctions near, Europe fails to protect Iran deal
News Image"You can't," the official said, and with just six weeks until the next wave of U.S. sanctions hits Iran on Nov. 4, European diplomats acknowledge he was right. The European Union has failed to design a workable legal shield for its companies in Iran to beat the global reach of the U.S. financial system and defy President Trump, the diplomats say. EU-Iranian trade this year is running at 2 billion euros ($2.35 billion) a month, but this is expected to fall as big European companies pull out and Iranian oil exports are choked off by U.S. sanctions.

Britain 'concerned' after Hong Kong bans pro-independence party
News ImageThe UK government has demanded China respect the autonomy of Hong Kongafter Beijingbanned a political party in the city that supports independence from China. We are concerned by the decision of the government, the Foreign Office said in a statement. The UK does not support Hong Kong independence, but Hong Kongs high degree of autonomy and its rights and freedoms are central to its way of life, and it is important they are fully respected. The ban was instituted on Monday on the grounds that the Hong Kong National Party (HKNP) was found a threat to national security as Beijing continues to stamp out challenges to its sovereignty. It is the first such ban on a political party since the former British colony was handed back to China by the UK in 1997.Police requested the ban in July under the Societies Ordinance, which allows groups to be prohibited in the interests of national security and public safety. Under the move, it is now illegal to be a party member, raise money for the group and to participate or act on behalf of the organization. Anyone in violation could face up to three years in prison and thousands in fines, according to a government notice posted online. Pro-democracy demonstrations in the special administrative region in 2014 largely failed to usher in political reforms. Since then, activists have continued speaking out. However, pro-independence supporters have been barred from running for office, including Andy Chan, a founding member of HKNP. Others have been disqualified from the legislative council. The ban came one day after a controversialhigh-speed rail link opened connecting Beijing to Hong Kong, a move that also stoked concerns about the growing reach of China into the city diminishing its autonomy.
