(CNN) Canada will ban many single-use plastic items by 2021, including bags, straws, cutlery and stirring sticks, to cut harmful waste damaging the country's ecosystems. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the measures Monday, describing "a problem we simply can't ignore." "Plastic waste ends up in our landfills and incinerators, litters our parks and beaches, and pollutes our rivers, lakes, and oceans, entangling and killing turtles, fish, and marine mammals," the Canadian leader said in a statement. "Less than 10 per cent of plastic used in Canada gets recycled. Without a change in course, Canadians will throw away an estimated $11 billion worth of plastic materials each year by 2030." According to the Canadian government, every year 1 million birds and more than 100,000 sea mammals worldwide are injured or die…

"We try to make use of their technology as much as possible," Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said in Tokyo on Thursday, before praising Huawei's research prowess. The Trump administration has for months waged a campaign against Huawei, preventing US companies from selling components to the telecom equipment maker and urging allies not to use its products in their 5G networks. The United States claims that Beijing could use Huawei equipment to spy on other countries, a charge the company has repeatedly denied. The fight is forcing governments and telecom providers to make tough choices about using Huawei gear in their next-generation…
