EU names four US territories on money-laundering blacklist
Michael_Novakhov shared this story from Commercial Property RSS.

Saudi Arabia, Nigeria and four overseas US territories have been named on the EU’s blacklist of territories at high risk of money laundering.
The European Commission on Wednesday pressed ahead with the publication of the name-and-shame exercise despite criticisms from its member states, led by the UK and France, about the political sensitivities of drawing up an EU-only list.
In total, 23 jurisdictions were identified by the commissioner for having “strategic deficiencies in their anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing frameworks”.
They include US territories Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa and US Virgin Islands, as well as Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, the Bahamas, Panama and Iran.
Identification on the list means EU banks dealing with any of the named countries will have to carry out additional checks in order to identify dirty money flows. Brussels will also invite the identified territories to improve their anti-money laundering frameworks if they want to be removed from the list.
“I invite the countries listed to remedy their deficiencies swiftly,” said Vera Jourova, the EU’s justice commissioner. “The commission stands ready to work closely with them to address these issues in our mutual interest.”

Lobbied

EU officials noted that Saudi Arabia and its allies in the US have lobbied Brussels for Riyadh to be taken off the list. At a meeting of EU28 ambassadors last week, the UK, France and Germany all expressed their reservations about the commission naming jurisdictions that have not been identified by the Financial Action Task Force, the global body that sets the standard for anti-money laundering. Of the 23 jurisdictions named by the commission, 11 are not identified by the task force.
Ms Jourova defended the commission’s toughened methodology for identifying the countries. EU governments could block the list from being approved with a qualified majority but the commissioner said it was unlikely to meet such staunch opposition.

“I am not surprised by some of the reactions but I do believe that the member states will express their full understanding for why we are doing this. It is a necessary thing to do,” she said. – Copyright The Financial Times Limited 2019

Before the start of business, Just Security provides a curated summary of up-to-the-minute developments at home and abroad. Here’s today’s news.
GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN AND BORDER WALL
President Trump intends to sign a spending bill that will keep the government open and will subsequently declare a national emergency in order to seek funding for his long-promised border-wall, the White House announced yesterday, with the developments ending uncertainty over a possible second government shutdown but giving rise to fresh controversy, Peter Baker, Emily Cochrane and Maggie Haberman report at the New York Times.
A Trump administration official confirmed last night that the president will announce around $8 billion for a border wall under executive actions, part of which will be the emergency declaration. That figure includes $1.375 billion in the spending bill for fencing in Texas; $600 million from the Treasury Department’s drug forfeiture fund; $2.5 billion from a Defense Department drug interdiction program; and $3.5 billion from a military construction budget under an emergency declaration by the president, Rebecca Shabad, Alex Moe, Frank Thorp V and Kristen Welker report at NBC.
News of Trump’s stance was announced after a phone call with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) and ended a stalemate in Congress as lawmakers waited anxiously to hear whether the president would sign the spending bill into law. The White House said Trump is scheduled to make remarks about border security at 10 a.m. this morning, Rebecca Ballhaus, Kristina Peterson and Natalie Andrews report at the Wall Street Journal.
Politicians from both parties have strongly condemned the plan. The “rarely-used” move would enable Trump to bypass Congress, and Senior Democrats have accused the
president of a “gross abuse of power” and a “lawless act,” the BBC reports.
“I wish he wouldn’t have done it,” said Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who McConnell interrupted on the Senate floor to make the announcement of Trump’s stance, adding: “if [Trump] figures that Congress didn’t do enough and he’s got to do it, then I imagine we’ll find out whether he’s got the authority to do it by the courts.” Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) stated that “in general, I’m not for running the government by emergency, nor spending money … the Constitution’s pretty clear: spending originates and is directed by Congress … so I’m not really for it,” Burgess Everett, Andrew Desiderio and Melanie Zanona report POLITICO.
The bill itself lacks any money toward a wall, falling far short of Trump’s original demand for $5.7 billion, Reuters reports.
Congress believes the Pentagon has $21 billion in unobligated military construction funding, that the president could use to build the wall over objections from Congress, according to two congressional aides. The money in question has been appropriated by the legislature and set aside for specific projects but not yet issued, Lara Seligman and Robbie Gramer explain at Foreign Policy.
“The President’s response to a futile effort to squeeze lawmakers for wall funding is to obliterate a constitutional guardrail in a way that could fundamentally alter the power balance between the presidency and Congress,” Stephen Collinson comments at CNN, projecting that Republicans will rue the implications of the decision for years to come.
“The president’s decision to officially declare an emergency … is not only an act of constitutional vandalism,” Eugene Robinson comments at the Washington Post, arguing that the president himself is the national emergency facing the U.S.  
An explainer on the promised declaration of a national emergency is provided by Tom McCarthy at the Guardian.
The TRUMP ADMINISTRATION
The Senate voted yesterday to approve William Barr as attorney general, giving the Department of Justice (D.O.J.) its first confirmed head since President Trump pushed out Jeff Sessions last fall. Senators voted 54-45 for Barr’s nomination, with Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) acting as the only Republican voting against Barr, while Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin  (W.Va.), Doug Jones (Ala.) and Kyrsten Sinema (Ariz.) broke with their party to lend him votes, Jordain Carney reports at the Hill.
“Trump’s foreign policy at midterm remains a work in progress,” John Hannah writes at Foreign Policy, in an analysis following last month’s release of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies’’ midterm report on the foreign policy performance of Trump’s administration.
IRAN
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence demanded yesterday that Europeans drop the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and join in working to cripple the regime, in an appeal that “united” Israel with longtime Arab adversaries at a conference in Warsaw. Suspicious of President Trump’s “hawkish” impulses and convinced the 2015 deal is working, major European powers sent low-level representation to the U.S.-initiated meeting; Pence took direct aim at allies U.K., France and Germany, criticizing their new initiative to let European companies operate in Iran in defiance of unilateral U.S. sanctions, AFPreports.
“Sadly … some of our leading European partners have not been nearly as cooperative,” Pence stated, adding: “in fact, they have led the effort to create mechanisms to break up our sanctions.” Pence claimed that “efforts to increase trade with Iran was “an effort to break American sanctions against Iran’s murderous revolutionary regime … it is an ill-advised step that will only strengthen Iran, weaken the EU and create still more distance between Europe and the United States,” Tal Axelrod reports at the Hill.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani yesterday blamed the U.S. and its regional allies for a suicide bombing in the country’s southeast that killed 27 members of the country’s elite Revolutionary Guards, Iranian state TV reported. “The crime will remain as a ‘dirty stain’ in the black record of the main supporters of terrorism in the White House, Tel Aviv and their regional agents,” Rouhani said; Militant Sunni Jaish al Adl (Army of Justice) group has claimed responsibility for the attack, Reuters reports.
SYRIA
Russia has joined with Turkey and Iran in regarding the planned U.S. military pullout from Syria as a positive step,leaders of the three nations said after a summit in Russia regarding the Syrian crisis.  Russian President Vladimir Putin hosted yesterday’s summit in the Black Sea resort of Sochi to discuss the future of Syria with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and their Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani; Putin said at a press briefing following the leaders’ meetings that they agreed that the U.S. withdrawal “would be a positive step that would help stabilize the situation in this region … where ultimately the legitimate government should re-establish control,” Al Jazeera reports.
U.S.-backed Syrian fighters are clearing Islamic State group (I.S.I.S) fighters from the last two villages under the control of the militant group controls, according to military officials. The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (S.D.F.) alliance launched an assault at the weekend on the villages of Shajalah and Baghuz, near the Iraqi border – with the last militants remaining there now reportedly retreating and hiding among the local population, the BBC reports.
U.S.-led airstrikes continue. U.S. and coalition forces carried out 199 airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Syria between Jan. 27 and Feb. 9. [Central Command]
OTHER DEVELOPMENTS
President Trump’s senior Middle East adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner said yesterday that the Trump administration would unveil its much-awaited Mideast “Deal of the Century” following Israeli elections on April 9. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that Kushner briefed participants at a security conference in Poland about the long-awaited plan but would not go into details for fear of it leaking; Netanyahu told reporters that he looked forward to “seeing the plan once it is presented,” Aron Heller reports at the AP.
Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan stated yesterday that the U.S. will not pull troops from Afghanistan without consulting its allies. “There will be no unilateral troop reduction,” Shanahan told reporters in Brussels after meeting with N.A.T.O. defense chiefs, adding: “that was one of the messages of the meeting today … we’ll be coordinated … we’re together;” reports emerged late last year suggesting that President Trump wanted to withdraw a significant portion of the 14,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan, Ellen Mitchel reports at the Hill.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro claimed yesterday that his foreign minister recently held secret talks in New York with the U.S. special envoy to Venezuela Eliott Abrams, even as the Trump administration was publicly backing an effort to unseat the Venezuelan president by opposition leader and self-declared interim president Juan Guaidó. Maduro said he holds out hope of meeting the U.S. president soon to resolve the political crisis, and that his foreign minister had extended an invitation to Abrams to come to Venezuela “privately, publicly or secretly;” “If he wants to meet, just tell me when, where and how and I’ll be there,” Maduro said without providing more details, the AP reports.
Tech giant Facebook is in early talks with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission regarding settling an investigation into privacy violations that could result in a record fine for the company, according to several people familiar with the matter. The
watchdog is investigating whether the social network broke a consent order that it signed with the F.T.C. in 2011, which obligated it to be transparent with users about how their data were being shared with third parties, Hannah Murphy, Kiran Stacey and Khadim Shubber report at the Financial Times.
“Trump’s mystifying behavior and questionable campaign contacts have made the unthinkable, thinkable: is the president of the United States a witting or unwitting agent of Russian intelligence?” Senior Fellow and Founding Editor Andy Wright writes at Just Security, in an analysis of whether Trump can employ executive privilege to block Congress’ access to the notes of his July 6, 2018 meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

The gulf between a coherent foreign policy and President Donald Trump’s narcissistic nihilism is captured by the distance between departed Secretary of Defense James Mattis and ascendant Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ― and their reactions to Trump’s precipitous withdrawal from Syria.

The Syria decision was quintessential Trump: abrupt, peremptory, unmoored from strategy, contemptuous of advisers and allies, and rooted in a lie ― that America had won a final victory over the militant group that calls itself the Islamic State. In response, Mattis submitted a stinging resignation letter to Trump, telling the president he should “have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with yours.”

Though he, too, objected to the decision, Pompeo issued a feeble defense of the Syria withdrawal, cementing his role as the State Department’s Paul Ryan. Indeed, Trump assigned Pompeo the exquisitely demeaning task of telling Mattis to leave the Pentagon prior to his stated resignation date.

The episode confirms that one cannot serve Trump with integrity, or even competence. Only courtiers remain. Mattis worked to constrain Trump’s whims; Pompeo catered to them, eventually eclipsing Mattis in Trump’s favor ― and survived.

“Mike Pompeo is doing a great job,” Trump declared in a tweet last month, calling Pompeo’s predecessor, Rex Tillerson, “dumb as a rock.” Under Pompeo, the president wrote, “it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State!”

Hardly. Eight months after Pompeo’s announcement that State would “get back our swagger,” morale still suffers. Nearly half of key posts remain empty, and Trump ordered the Syria withdrawal without consulting the officials charged with policy in the region, prompting the resignation of Brett McGurk, the department’s envoy to the allied coalition fighting ISIS. Only Pompeo is swaggering ― which, it turns out, is his principal talent. 

No surprise. Prior to becoming Trump’s CIA director, Pompeo was a tea party congressman, a fundamentalist climate change denier who trafficked in Islamophobic hysteria. He ingratiated himself with Trump by parroting his empty and erratic foreign policy pronouncements as they oscillated between mindless bellicosity and nominating himself for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Take Pompeo’s arrogant and self-contradictory speech to NATO ministers in December. Serially, he claimed that Trump was building “a new liberal order”; emphasized “America First” over global cooperation; and disparaged the World Bank, the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund and, amazingly, the European Union. Missing was any coherent vision for our allies ― Pompeo was aping his solipsistic audience of one.

As Trump’s global eunuch, Pompeo fronts for a phony peace process that is ratifying North Korea’s nuclear arsenal. Formerly a fervent advocate of regime change in North Korea, Pompeo fluttered helplessly in Trump’s slipstream over the last year as the president careened from imposing sanctions and threatening “fire and fury” to granting the murderous Kim Jong Un the unprecedented honor of a summit and then proclaiming, after a couple hours of kabuki summitry during which they “fell in love,” that “there is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea” ― leaving Pompeo to play Kim’s fool in Trump’s narcissistic fantasy of peace. 

Shortly thereafter, our intelligence agencies concluded that Kim was deceiving Trump by developing more nuclear materials and ICBMs. When Pompeo visited North Korea to flesh out “denuclearization,” the regime castigated his “gangster-like demands.” A second visit yielded only an as-yet-unfulfilled promise to allow international inspection of a supposedly destroyed test site and the prospect of another summit, undercutting Pompeo’s role as intermediary.

The North Koreans, Korea expert Sue Mi Terry says, “just want to deal with Trump.” Who wouldn’t? Now Kim has issued a New Year’s statement insisting that North Korea won’t denuclearize until the U.S. drops sanctions, withdraws its nuclear and military capabilities from South Korea and formally ends the Korean War. This confirms the point of Kim’s charade: North Korea will never yield its nuclear weapons. As his fig leaves wither, Pompeo has labeled Kim’s contemptuous treatment as “bumps in the road” in “a great process.” 

Only in Trump’s mind. In the real world, North Korea will become a nuclear power on Trump’s watch ― as Pompeo looks on.

Still, nothing captures Pompeo’s feckless tenure better than Trump’s self-canceling policies toward Iran. Imagining Iran as a colossus astride the Middle East, Trump and Pompeo, despite Mattis’ advice, favored abrogating the Iran nuclear deal negotiated in cooperation with five international partners, substituting a fanciful policy of “maximum pressure” that demanded an end to Iran’s internal repression and support of militias in Syria and Lebanon ― essentially, regime change.

No doubt Iran helps roil the region. But its military resources are dwarfed by its Sunni Arab neighbors. While imperfect, the Iran deal postponed Iran’s nuclear development while subjecting it to stringent inspections and verification. Alienated by Trump’s unilateral decision, our fellow signatories are cooperating with Iran to preserve the deal and evade American sanctions against the regime. Trump’s alternative, they sensibly believe, enhances the risk of war.

Concurrently, Trump’s uncritical support for Saudi Arabia as a regional counterweight to Iran licenses the reckless behavior of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman: blockading Qatar, kidnapping Lebanon’s prime minister, conducting a brutal military campaign against Shia insurgents in Yemen and repressing or murdering dissenters like Jamaal Khashoggi. Overall, what Pompeo calls the “disruptive boldness” of Trump’s Iran policy has further destabilized the Middle East.

Here Pompeo’s linguistic and geopolitical crudity mirrors Trump’s. He criticized Congressional “caterwauling” over Khashoggi’s murder; misrepresented the CIA’s finding that MBS directed it; called the Saudis “a powerful force for stability in the Middle East”; and defended America’s support for Saudi barbarism that has massacred Yemeni civilians while causing mass famine ― a humanitarian disaster that enhances Iranian influence.

In that regard, Syria highlights Trump’s strategic vacuity ― and Pompeo’s impotence. In October, Pompeo said that American troops served “two other mutually reinforcing objectives” beyond defeating ISIS: “a peaceful resolution in Syria” and “the removal of all Iranian and Iranian-backed forces.” Further, Mattis argued, our military presence was critical to maintaining internal stability, containing Russia and preventing Turkey from slaughtering our chief allies against ISIS, the Kurds.

What changed? Simply this: Turkey’s autocratic President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Trump what he wanted to hear ― that Turkey could mop up ISIS in Syria, and that America could decamp. “It’s all yours,” Trump reportedly replied. “We are done.”

So he did. Without consultation, Trump unilaterally reversed America’s stated position ― including Pompeo’s blustery pledge that American troops would remain until Iran withdrew “all forces under Iranian command throughout the entirety of Syria.”

Just that week, the State Department’s Syria envoy, James Jeffrey, had stated that the U.S. would remain until ISIS was defeated, Iranian influence was curbed and America helped achieve a political solution to Syria’s catastrophic civil war ― defusing a potentially incendiary “great-power conflict” involving Russia, Iran, Turkey and Israel. In his exit statement, McGurk wrote that the “complete reversal of policy” had “left our fighting partners bewildered.” Not to worry: “Donald’s right,” Russian President Vladimir Putin assured us.

In short, Trump’s unmediated impulsiveness eviscerated our Middle East policy, benefiting Syria’s most malign actors. His stark betrayal of the Kurds left them in a killing zone between Erdogan ― who blames them for Kurdish insurgents in Turkey ― and a genocidal Assad regime they must now embrace. ISIS, which still controls territory in southeastern Syria and has an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 fighters prepared to carry out attacks, is far from defeated.

Russia can now consolidate control over Syria and its government, securing the naval base it has long wanted. Similarly Trump has empowered Iran, through Hezbollah, to dominate eastern Syria, secure oil fields that will help it ameliorate U.S. sanctions, and more effectively menace Israel ― which Trump left to fend for itself.

But the biggest geopolitical loser is America. By abruptly shredding his strategy for Syria and Iran while ceding U.S. influence in the region, Trump “implements Russia’s negative agenda by default, undermining the U.S.-led world order, U.S. alliances, U.S. credibility as a partner and ally,” Russian columnist and foreign affairs analyst Vladimir Frolov told The New York Times.

The resulting diplomatic vacuum leaves America without negotiating leverage to effect a settlement that constrains ISIS, protects the Kurds, buffers Israel ― or, tragically, prevents Syrian President Bashar Assad from slaughtering thousands more civilians. 

And what of Pompeo, that swaggering secretary who warned that “emboldening Iran would spread even more death and destruction in the Middle East”? He tried dissembling: His assertion that “we’ve made the caliphate in Syria go away” confuses territory with fighters. As to the obvious fact that Trump left the Kurds at risk of slaughter, Pompeo says ― pathetically ― that “we’re counting” on the Russians and Turks “to honor their commitment” to comply with international law. Invertebrates can’t swagger, but they fold with impressive facility.

Not Mattis. Resigning, he wrote Trump that “my views on treating allies with respect and… being clear-eyed about both malign actors and strategic competitors are strongly held”; that “China and Russia… want to shape a world consistent with her authoritarian model”; and that America “must do everything possible to advance an international order that is most conducive to our security, prosperity and values.”

Such views, and the integrity to express them, have become disqualifying for service in the Trump administration. In foreign policy Trump is now ungovernable: America First is Trump Alone ― another expression of the dangerous ignorance and mercurial vainglory of a pathological narcissist who prefers playing soldier on the Mexican border to strategizing with advisers and allies about a cohesive strategy to minimize global risks. He has but one trajectory: bad to worse.

So, inescapably, does Mike Pompeo.

Route traced in the renegotiation of debt | Opinion
The agreement that takes shape between the Federal Fiscal Control Board, the government and groups of creditors to successfully complete the renegotiation of the debt of the Fund of Interest-prone (Cofina) is a step in the right direction because it makes sense of urgency to the task of removing from the road to the fiscal consolidation and the economic development of Puerto Rico.
This agreement has been reached as a result of working shoulder to shoulder, fundamentally between the fiscal board and the Rossello administration.
The credit collapse gestated in the fiscal failures, and that began to worsen after the closure of government and the crisis of governance in 2006, has passed as a country to bitter bill, with an economic depression that adds up to 12 years and a public debt which – with all its aspects, derivatives and multiplier effect – exceeds $ 130,000 million.

It can not be an option to shuffle with the issues of debt and, much less, that disagreements and petty wars between sectors delay or hinder the necessary renegotiation. Hence the importance of the endorsement that both the Chamber and the Senate have given to the administration project for the consensual attention of Cofina’s debt.
Ni el proceso legislativo fue inclusivo ni la medida endosada es perfecta. Pero la realidad es que es extremadamente necesario poner en práctica los mecanismos que sean viables, que hagan posible el destranque en un asunto nuestro tan neurálgico a dos años de creada la ley Promesa.
Este proyecto de administración y su aprobación legislativa son un buen ejemplo de lo que se puede lograr cuando la unidad de propósito aflora.

La deuda de Cofina, entidad creada en 2006 para emitir obligaciones, se eleva a los $17,600 millones y en mayo de 2017 fue puesta bajo el Título III de la ley Promesa.
A un año y tres meses desde su entrada al Título III, trascendió que había un acuerdo entre una parte de los acreedores, el gobierno y la junta fiscal para reestructurar la deuda fuera del proceso de quiebra. En principio eso incluyó a bonistas senior y junior, así como a aseguradoras de deuda.
Luego de intensas negociaciones, se logró que se sumara la cantidad requerida de acreedores en el acuerdo para hacerlo viable, lo cual pasó a la certificación de la jueza de distrito federal Laura Taylor Swain, quien preside todo el proceso de quiebra del gobierno de Puerto Rico.

El acuerdo provee para una reducción del 32% de la deuda. Con esto, se deberán alcanzar ahorros en torno a unos $17,500 millones correspondientes al servicio de las obligaciones.
De igual forma, el arreglo contempla una redistribución de la división de los recaudos producto del Impuesto sobre Ventas y Usos (IVU), lo cual le deja más dinero al Fondo General, con un promedio de $425 millones anuales durante unos 40 años.
Falta mucho por recorrer, es cierto. Pero es de esperarse que este importante acuerdo sobre Cofina se convierta —con determinación— en la llave que abra la puerta ancha para conducir al éxito la reestructuración de los demás segmentos de deuda pública del País. Es de esperarse que el acuerdo sea ratificado en el futuro cercano por la jueza Swain.
It should also be ensured that after this exercise the future negotiations will take place in better terms for the Island, and that we will be able to take off the straitjacket that holds back economic development and that also slows down the return to bonds markets under fair and beneficial to the people of Puerto Rico.
