The United States has no better partner in the world than Germany, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Wednesday.

Iran will decide whether to extend its monitoring deal with the International Atomic Energy Agency after its expiry on June 24, Iranian state TV's news website quoted presidential chief of staff Mahmoud Vaezi as saying on Wednesday. "It has been decided that after the expiration of the agreement's deadline, Iran's Supreme National Security Council (will) decide about the agreement's extension at its first meeting," Vaezi said, according to the website. Iran and the U.N. nuclear watchdog reached a three-month accord in February - which was extended on May 24 for a month - to cushion the blow of Tehran's decision to reduce its cooperation with the IAEA by ending extra monitoring measures introduced by its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday declined to expand police powers, throwing out a lower court ruling that had allowed a California highway patrol officer to enter the home of a motorist suspected of a minor crime without a warrant. The case involved a man who was followed by police after honking his horn while listening to music, and then was convicted of driving under the influence after an officer entered his garage without a warrant and performed a sobriety test. The court, in a 9-0 decision authored by Justice Elena Kagan, sent the case back to the California Court of Appeals.

India Walton, a left-leaning political novice, appears to have unseated the four-term mayor of Buffalo, New York state's second largest city, in an upset that she said was only a first step in overhauling the politics of the upstate region. Also in western New York, Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren was defeated handily by city council member Malik Evans. With mail-in and absentee ballots yet to be counted in the Buffalo race, Walton led Mayor Byron Brown by 52% to 45% in a Democratic primary that drew an unofficial total turnout of fewer than 22,000 voters.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday put limits on when police officers pursuing a fleeing suspect can enter a home without a warrant. The high court ruled that when officers are pursuing someone suspected of a misdemeanor, a less serious crime, they cannot always enter a home without a warrant if a suspect enters. The court had previously said that police in “hot pursuit” of a suspect believed to have committed a more serious crime, a felony, can enter a home without a warrant.
Irish fishermen sent a flotilla of around 100 trawlers up the River Liffey in the centre of Dublin on Wednesday in protest at being hit harder than most member states by the Brexit trade deal the European Union struck with Britain. Around 1,000 people protested along the city's main river overlooked by Dublin's financial centre, including many who sailed overnight from all around the country. Under the deal reached late last year, Ireland will lose around 15% of its fishing quota share by 2026 as a result of a quota transfer from the EU to Britain, according to Irish government data.

The legal defence team of jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny on Wednesday made public for the first time the full text of a Russian court ruling that outlawed his political network as "extremist" on June 9.
