The US Secretary of Defence Chuck Hagle is stepping down after less than 2 years in the job. Sources say his resignation is by mutual agreement with President Obama. Jane O'Brien reports from Washington.  



President Obama had warm praise for Chuck Hagle a personal friend for many years. He extolled Mr. Hagle's relationship with the American troops who knew that is a Vietnam war veteran. He like them had experienced the dirt and mud of the combat. But not mentioned was the reason for Mr. Hagle's resignation. Insiders say he failed to penetrate the President's tight-knit foreign policy team, and was at doubts with the White House on how to tackle the growing threat from Islamic State and the civil war in Syria.



The US Secretary of State John Kerry has said that real and substantial progress has been made in the latest talks over Iran's nuclear program, but that significant points of disagreements remain. Mr. Kerry spoke after today's self-imposed deadline for a deal was extended for 7 months. Jeremy Bowen reports from Vienna.



All sides here in Vienna wanted a deal. None of them were prepared to walk away from a negotiation they said was difficult. The reason, is that the alternative might in the end, turn out to be war. Israel has threatened many times to attack Iran's nuclear facilities. The US Secretary of State John Kerry's speaking just before he left for the airport was highly positive about the progress that's been made. He said they'd all be fools to give up now without an agreement to meet again and keep talking.

Georgia's foreign minister denounced the moves as a step towards the annexation of Abkhazia by Russia. The signing of the deal comes days after tens of thousands of Georgians took part in a rally against the planned agreement.

The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that women are not equal to men. Mr. Erdogan told a women's conference in Istanbul that Islam defined women as mothers, something he said feminists did not accept.  



You cannot claim that men and women are equal as their natures are different. In the work place, you cannot treat a man and a pregnant woman in the same way. You cannot make a mother who has to breast feed her child equal to a man. You cannot make women do everything men do like the communist regimes did. This is against her delicate nature.
