Talks aimed at overcoming a years-long deadlock over disarmament at the United Nations began in acrimony on Tuesday with two countries blocking rivals from taking part in widely criticised manoeuvres that sparked concern about the forum's future. Iran blocked Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates from joining as observers, lashing out at the former's military record, while Turkey blocked Cyprus in a trend that marks a significant departure from normal U.N. protocol and might set a precedent for other bodies that operate on a consensus basis. Iran's delegate said that Saudi Arabia had used the forum as a platform for a "distraction and disinformation campaign" and called Riyadh "the largest military offender in the region".

With the weather fairly miserable and golf courses closed during Britain's latest lockdown, Lee Westwood opted to fly out to the Middle East to do his preseason work ahead of a 28th year on the European Tour. It's a part of the world which served the 47-year-old Westwood pretty well in 2020, a stop-start year that opened with him winning the Abu Dhabi Championship in January for his 25th title on the tour and ended with him becoming — against the odds — Europe's No. 1 golfer for the third time in his career at the World Tour Championship in Dubai in December. No wonder Westwood is raring to get going again after an offseason of only three weeks, with the tour's first event of the 2021 season being the defense of his Abu Dhabi title this week.
