From the poisoning of a former spy in Britain, which led Russia to a confrontation with the West, to the political transformations of the United States under President Donald Trump, the following are some of the major events that were printed in 2018. The 
poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain 
On March 4 found the Russian spy The former double Sergey Scrippal and his daughter are unconscious about a seat in the city of Salisbury in Britain and have been poisoned. 
LONDON (Reuters) - London blamed Moscow and issued two arrest warrants in September for two Russian agents for trying to kill Scrippel and his daughter, but Moscow rejected all charges.Scrippel and his daughter survived in June, but a British woman in a village outside Salisbury died of exposure to Nuvichuk gas, which was used for poisoning, and her husband was also seriously ill.The victories of the Syrian regime
The angry exchange of views between the two capitals prompted Western countries to line up behind London, leading to London and Moscow's exchange of dozens of diplomats in retaliation and new sanctions against Russia. 


On April 14, the Syrian army announced that all forces opposed to the regime were forced to leave the eastern region of Ghouta, adjacent to Damascus after a strong attack lasted two months. 
That was a major victory in the government's efforts to re-establish its control after the devastating conflict that erupted in 2011. On the same day, the United States, Britain and France launched pre-dawn attacks against bases of President Bashar al-Assad's regime in response to an attack in Douma, . However, the regime denied all charges. Trump withdraws from nuclear deal with Iran On May 8, US President Donald Trump withdrew his country from the historic agreement signed with Iran in 2015 that limits the Islamic Republic's nuclear program in return for easing sanctions against it. Trump said that "the agreement is not going too far" in preventing Iran from making a nuclear bomb, in addition to other criticisms.
Assad's forces, backed by the Russian army, have continued to win a series of victories against insurgents in the opposition factions to regain control of two-thirds of the devastated and divided country.



The remaining parties - Britain, Germany, Russia and China - insisted that Iran had fulfilled its obligations and had promised not to touch the agreement. 
In August, Washington imposed a first round of sanctions on Iran, followed by a second push in November. 
US moves embassy to Jerusalem 
on May 14 The United States opened its new embassy in Jerusalem in a move that runs counter to conventional decades-old international policy and has angered Palestinians who want to declare East Jerusalem the capital of their desired state.
Clashes broke out on the border between Gaza and Israel, where Gaza saw the bloodiest day of the ongoing crisis, with 60 Palestinians killed by Israeli soldiers. 
The Palestinians froze their relations with the Trump administration. 
The populists take power in Italy 
On June 1, an opposition coalition of the populist five-star movement and extreme right-wing Europeans came to power in Italy. 
New Interior Minister Matteo Salveni, leader of the anti-immigration and anti-Islam League party, adopted a tough policy that led to Italy closing its border with migrants.
Anti-immigrant sentiment in Europe intensified in April when Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Urban led his party to an overwhelming victory in the legislative elections. 
Meet Trump and Kim
On June 12, US President Donald Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore in his first such meeting. 
The two leaders signed an agreement reaffirming Pyongyang's commitment to "complete disarmament on the Korean Peninsula." 
But so far North Korea has taken only serious steps to abandon its nuclear weapons, and the two sides have entered into a dispute over the interpretation of the text of the agreement. 
Yemen war reaches port of aid 
On June 13, a serious development in the Yemeni war occurred as pro-government forces backed by Saudi Arabia and the UAE launched an offensive to wrest control of the port of vital aid in Hodeidah of the Houthis. 
The war, which began in 2014, has so far killed some 10,000 people and nearly 20 million people are at risk of starvation, according to aid groups.
The parties to the conflict met in peace negotiations under the auspices of the United Nations in Sweden at the beginning of December, and reached an agreement to withdraw combat troops from the city of Hodeidah and its port and cease fire in the province. 
Eritrea, Ethiopia find peace 
on July 9 Eritrea and Ethiopia, the two neighboring countries of the Horn of Africa, have declared the end of a two-decade-old war and have begun a peace process that has led to an exchange of embassies, telephone networks, flights and trade relations. 
This comes after Ethiopian Prime Minister Abe Ahmed announced in June that his government would abandon its claim to a disputed border area.
The agreement also led Somalia and Eritrea to restore diplomatic ties on July 30 after a long period of hostility, and the United Nations lifted sanctions on Eritrea on November 14. 
The Thai cave boys
The world breathed a sigh of relief on July 10 when the last boy was rescued from 12 soccer players from the boys and their coach from a flooded cave in northern Thailand where they were held for 17 days. 
The fate of the young people of the football team being held in the cave drew world attention. Diving experts from the United States and Britain joined in the rescue effort, but a former Thai naval diver has lost his life. 
Heat and fires 
Europe suffered a major heat wave in July and August, as temperatures touched 48 degrees Celsius, while flames in the forests of Greece, Portugal and Spain.

The death of Jamal Khashoggi
On October 2, Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who writes opinion pieces in the Washington Post, entered his consulate in Istanbul and never came out. 
More than two weeks after his disappearance, Riyadh stopped his disappearance and admitted that he had been killed inside the consulate after a fight. The Saudi authorities dismissed several officials and arrested others and also admitted that the body of the journalist had been severed.
Brazil swings to the right 
On October 28, Latin America's largest nation swung to the right with Javier Paulsonaro elected as Brazil's new president. 
Brazil witnessed the heaviest campaign of hate speech and violence, and Paulsonaro was stabbed in the stomach during a march in September. 
Democrats control the US House of Representatives

A convoy of Central American immigrants drew attention from the election as it approached the Mexico-US border, which has been tightened since mid-November. 
The protests of the "yellow jackets" in France 
On 17 November protests erupted across France against the tax hike on motor fuel and rising cost of living, and later turned into a mass protest movement against government policies and President Emmanuel Macaron.
The "Yellow Jackets" protests, named after jackets worn by drivers when an emergency order was issued, also coincided with riots and looting. 
After the government reversed its plan to increase fuel taxes, Macaron on Dec. 10 set out other measures to ease anger, including rising wages.
