Anadolu’s recap of top stories from around the globe.

Here is a rundown of all the news that you need to start your Saturday including NATO's agreement on a plan to coordinate security assistance and training for Ukraine, Kyiv rejecting Russia's peace proposal offered by Putin, and a new threat for the upcoming US election.


  • NATO agrees on plan to coordinate security assistance, training for Ukraine
NATO's top official said the defense ministers of alliance members have agreed on a plan to coordinate security assistance and training for Ukraine.

Jens Stoltenberg said in Brussels that these efforts do not make NATO a party to the conflict, but will enhance the alliance's support to Ukraine "to uphold its right to self-defense."

His remarks came at a closing news conference of the two-day NATO defense ministers meeting, the last ministerial meeting before a NATO summit in Washington next month.

  • Ukraine rejects Russia's peace proposal offered by Putin
Ukraine rejected Russian President Vladimir Putin's peace offer within hours, claiming there are no new "peace proposals" from Moscow.

Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak wrote X: "There are no new 'peace proposals' from Russia," and that the Russian leadership has inadequately assessed realities.

Earlier in the day, Putin said at a meeting with Foreign Ministry employees in Moscow that Russia is making "another concrete, real peace proposal" to Kyiv.

  • US elections: How serious of a threat is AI?
Artificial intelligence (AI) has been all the talk since the advent of the AI language model ChatGPT, which brought the technology into the mainstream.

Nevertheless, it is not just the average Joe's job that might be at stake -- AI may well be instrumental in dethroning US President Joe Biden, or keeping him in the Oval Office, considering the unprecedented speed at which the technology is advancing.

AI-based manipulation methods and deepfakes, which are footage or content that looks or sounds convincing enough to fool at least some voters, pose a substantial threat, experts told Anadolu.
