Daily Global Issues Brief - April 25, 2016 (headlines)


Good morning, here are my top 5 news on global issues from Afghanistan, China, Burundi, the Middle East and Austria

- Following the deadly attacks in Kabul, President Ghani drops the idea of peace talks with the Taliban and urges Pakistan to do the same - a sign of a harsher stance against their neighbor notoriously known for its 'unofficial' support of the terrorist group

- CHINA: foreign non-governmental organizations operating in China face ambiguity with a new law that gives Chinese police power to oversee their activities in the name of national security

- AUSTRIA: another EU country elects right-wing party into power, bringing anti-immigration policies to the forefront of the national dialogue and likely hindering the collective European response to the refugee and migrant crisis
