#AceWorldNews – JERUSALEM – April 22 – (JP) – Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman made clear Tuesday that Israel intended to refrain from taking a firm position on the Ukrainian crisis, saying there is “no lack” of problems in the Middle East that Israel needs to contend with.
“Our basic position is that we hope Russia and Ukraine will find a way as quickly as possible to normalize relations, and find a way to talks, and to solve all the problems peacefully,” he said at a Jerusalem press conference with visiting Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz.
#AceNewsServices – AUSTRIA – April 21 – Austrian authorities say they believe two teenage girls that vanished from their homes in Vienna earlier in April may have been tricked into going to Syria to join foreign-backed insurgents and terrorists in the country in the name of “holy war.” (Alalam)
The first hints of where Samra Kesinovic, 16, and Sabina Selimovic, 15, went were a number of social media posts claiming the girls had gone to fight a “holy war.”
The development comes as al-Qaeda-linked Takfiri propagandists and local preachers across Europe have become increasingly active in social networking site and a number of community mosques, deceiving Muslim youth and young converts into joining terrorist gangs in the Muslim nation of Syria and kill other Muslims in the name of a “holy struggle.”
The girl’s parents told the Dnevni Avaz (Daily Voice), a newspaper in Bosnia and Herzegovina, that the pair had left behind letters in which they said they were going to Syria to fight “for Islam.”
New photos on Facebook pages of the two female teenagers show them holding Kalashnikov automatic rifles, and in some cases they are surrounded by armed men.
In their latest post, they said they were going to get married so they could become “holy warriors,” according to the Daily Mail.

#AceWorldNews – The stances of Iran and the P5+1 group (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) on future uranium enrichment in Iran “are far apart,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said, as cited by Interfax.
International mediators want to find a solution based on the Geneva plan of actions, while Iranians “do not agree with this.”
“But their demands are quite far-reaching,” Ryabkov said. As for Russia, Ryabkov said, in the negotiations on the Iranian nuclear program, it will not seek “to somehow play into the hands of the Americans, or the European Union, or the Iranians,” but will see its “very well-defined interest” in this process.

#AceWorldNews says reports are coming in that that at least two passengers registered aboard missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 have been found safe and sound in their home countries.
The Austrian and Italian citizens reportedly had their passports stolen earlier in Thailand.
An Austrian national thought to have been aboard the plane that disappeared off the coast of Vietnam early Saturday is alive and safe, an Austrian Foreign Ministry spokesman revealed.
“Our embassy got the information that there was an Austrian on board. That was the passenger list from Malaysia Airlines.
Our system came back with a note that this is a stolen passport,” the spokesman said, as quoted by Reuters.
The man, who was found at home by police, had his passport stolen while travelling in Thailand in 2012.
However, this was not the end of the story. An Italian ‘ghost’ passenger was also discovered, according to the Foreign Ministry in Rome.
