China, U.S. agree to boost nuclear security cooperation

China and the United States on Thursday reaffirmed their joint commitment to global nuclear security and pledged to continue cooperation in this area beyond the Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) process.

In a joint statement released as Chinese President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Barack Obama met here on the sidelines of the fourth NSS, the two countries declared their “commitment to working together to foster a peaceful and stable international environment by reducing the threat of nuclear terrorism and striving for a more inclusive, coordinated, sustainable and robust global nuclear security architecture for the common benefit and security of all.”

Nuclear security cooperation has become a bright spot in the building of a new type of major-country relations between the world’s largest developing and developed countries. In February, the two sides carried out the inaugural round of bilateral discussions on nuclear security in Stockholm, Sweden.

“We plan to continue this dialogue on an annual basis, so as to intensify our cooperation to prevent nuclear terrorism and continue advancing Nuclear Security Summit goals,” said the joint statement.

In a more recent example, a nuclear security center of excellence (COE) jointly financed and built by the Chinese and U.S. governments was inaugurated in suburban Beijing on March 18. It is the largest, best equipped and most advanced facility of its kind in the Asia-Pacific region.

The COE, said the statement, “is a world-class venue to meet China’s domestic nuclear security training requirements, as well as a forum for bilateral and regional best practice exchanges, and a venue for demonstrating advanced technologies related to nuclear security.”

The two countries pledged continued engagement on nuclear security training and best practices so as to maximize the use and effectiveness of the COE, and China vowed to sponsor training programs at the site for regional partners and other international participants to further promote global nuclear security awareness and engagement.

Meanwhile, the two sides agreed to push forward cooperation on conversion of miniature neutron source reactors (MNSR) from highly enriched uranium fuel to low-enriched uranium fuel, including working through the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to support the conversion of MNSRs in Ghana and Nigeria as soon as possible.

China, according to the joint statement, also “reaffirms its readiness, upon the request of respective countries, to convert all remaining Chinese-origin MNSRs worldwide.”

Recognizing the need for strengthened international cooperation to counter nuclear smuggling, China and the United States reiterated their “enduring commitment to prevent terrorists, criminals or other unauthorized actors from acquiring nuclear or other radioactive materials.”

The two sides “will continue to coordinate efforts to strengthen counter nuclear smuggling capabilities and share best practices with the international community, taking full advantage of the training programs sponsored by the China Customs Training Center for Radiation Detection,” said the statement.

Furthermore, Beijing and Washington expressed satisfaction on “the fruitful cooperation between the two sides in enhancing the security of radioactive sources, in particular regarding recovery of disused sources and transport security of radioactive sources,” and pledged to further strengthen cooperation in this regard and facilitate the sharing of experiences and best practices with other countries.

Stressing that “strong communication and cooperation are essential to nuclear security,” the two countries committed themselves to continuing strong support for the work of relevant international agencies on nuclear security in accordance with their respective mandates.

The NSS process, initiated by Obama and headlined by a biennial leaders’ meeting since 2010, will come to an end in its current format after the fourth summit, though nuclear security is faced with increasingly grave and complicated challenges.

Under such circumstances, China and the United States expressed their “strong commitment” to addressing the evolving nuclear security challenges through sustained efforts after the current NSS process concludes, said the joint statement.

Bangladeshi trio of Dulal, Siddikur, Sajib dominate round one of BTI Open

 

Udayan Mane & Pratap Atwal are best-placed Indians in tied fourth

 

Dhaka, March 30, 2016: The Bangladeshi trio of Md Dulal Hossain, Md Siddikur Rahman and Md Sajib Ali dominated round one of the inaugural BTI Open as they occupied the top three places on the leaderboard at their home course, the Kurmitola Golf Club in Dhaka.

 

While Md Dulal Hossain seized the lead with a sparkling seven-under-65, Md Siddikur Rahman and Md Sajib Ali were a shot behind in tied second at the INR 35 lakh event.

 

Bengaluru’s Udayan Mane and Delhi’s Pratap Atwal led the Indian charge on day one with promising scores of five-under-67 that placed them tied fourth.

 

Dulal mixed nine birdies with two bogeys on Wednesday. Dulal came up with four straight birdies from the fifth through the eighth to set the tone for the day.

 

Dulal said, “I got off to a good start with a birdie today and that put me in a good frame of mind. I just took all my opportunities thereafter. The four consecutive birdies gave me a lot of confidence that translated into a solid back-nine. There’s a long way to go with three rounds remaining and a lot of good players are up there in the top-10. It’ll be all about capitalizing on the good start from here on.”

 

Two-time Asian Tour winner Siddikur Rahman, who has been struggling for form on the Asian Tour this year, produced his best score of the season so far, a six-under-66,  to live up to his reputation of being one of the pre-tournament favourites. Rahman put up an outstanding display of ball-striking coupled with some consistent putting to make three birdies each on either side of the turn.

 

His longest putt of the day was the 20-feet birdie conversion on the 13th while the highlight of his round was the birdie chip-in on the 14th.

 

“It’s great to start the week with a bogey-free round. I’m delighted to have shot such a low score after a long time. I’ve not been playing too well of late but would love to turn it around with a good performance this week,” said the 31-year-old Siddikur.

 

He added, “I won’t put too much pressure on myself this week and will just treat every round like practice. My driving was the best part of my game today. It set up the early birdies for me. The chip-in on 14 was my best birdie today and gave me the momentum going into the second round.”

 

Md Sajib Ali joined Siddikur in tied second thanks to a round punctuated by nine birdies and three bogeys.

 

Udayan Mane, the 2015 PGTI Emerging Player of the Year, armed with a hot putter, strung together six birdies and a lone bogey during his opening round of 67. Mane’s round featured four straight birdies from the 14th to 17th. The 25-year-old sank four putts from a range of 15 to 25 feet on Wednesday.

 

“I made some changes in my swing at the start of the season and I feel those changes might just begin to produce the desired results soon. I feel I was expecting a bit too much from myself at the start of this season after a fabulous rookie season last year. But I’ve now decided to just enjoy myself on the course and not think too much about the results,” said Mane, a two-time winner on the PGTI in 2015.

 

Pratap Atwal posted seven birdies and two bogeys to join Mane in tied fourth position.

 

Md Zamal Hossain Mollah, another local favourite, shared sixth place with Indians Harendra Gupta, Deepinder Singh Kullar and C Muniyappa at four-under-68.

Pentagon concedes Russia’s ‘constructive role’ in Syrian ceasefire,

© Jason Reed
US Russia has developed neat and constructive understanding to quell Syrian violence which has adversely affected the everyday and normal life of European union.Thus Europe is keen to have democratic norms are followed to bring the Syrian rule into the hands of people rather than dynastic or group ism in nexus. thus people vote is key of success.
Russia is playing a “constructive” role in Syria’s ceasefire, the Pentagon said, having noted “developments” on the ground. It encouraged Moscow to “continue to focus” on Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), while persuading Assad to stop the war.

“It is clear that they have focused more of their military attention on ISIL, we think that’s a good thing,” Pentagon spokesperson Peter Cook said during a briefing in Washington DC.“They said initially that was their primary goal, was to go after ISIL in Syria and they are doing so now.”

Cook added that the US sees “those developments” on the ground, but also hopes that the ceasefire in Syria would “ultimately lead to a resolution of the Syrian Civil War.”

In this regard, Cook stressed that peace in Syria depends on Bashar Assad and the changes that he as the President is required to make.

Syrian conflict unfolded five years ago, the US has been insisting that Assad has to step down as a part of a peaceful resolution to the military conflict, which has given way to a jihadist insurgency.

“We’re also pushing for the cessation of hostilities that we hope will ultimately lead to a resolution of the Syrian Civil War, but to have that happen will require changes on the part of the Assad regime, and nobody has more leverage, more clout – if you will, than Russia,” Cook said.“We hope that they [Russia] would use that leverage in as constructive fashion as possible, and we would encourage them to do so.”

He went on to say that if the Russians “continue to focus their efforts” on Islamic State, this “would be a good thing.”

Cook’s comments have marked a significant shift in the Obama administration’s tone towards Russia’s actions in Syria.

Last week, the Secretary of State, who traveled to Moscow last week to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, also pointed out Russia’s help in the “strategic interest”of the United States.

“Russia is now helping with the cessation of hostilities. And if Russia can help us to actually affect this political transition, that is all to the strategic interest of the United States of America,” Kerry told the CBS show Face the Nation.

Since Russia started its anti-terror campaign over Syria to assist the Syrian army in September 2015, the US has been accusing Moscow of aiming its actions on anti-Assad rebels and targeting civilians, while providing no substantial evidence.Russian air power, the Syrian troops have been making steady progress in retaking grounds from IS. Last week, the Syrian Army achieved one of its major victories after liberating the historic city of Palmyra, or Tadmur. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it had been occupied by jihadists since last May. Until its capture, the city housed some of the world’s best-preserved monuments of antiquity, which had been partially destroyed, including two of Palmyra’s 2,000-year-old temples.

Many countries want to see the Syrian Army defeated so Damascus would be forced to make concessions, President Bashar Assad told RIA Novosti in an exclusive interview. The army’s advances are, in fact, a major contribution to eventual peace, he said.

The Syrian Arab Army’s success on the battlefield, with Russia’s support, is going to speed up a political settlement in Syria, not hinder it, Assad believes.

The Roundtable Japan – an initiative of Forma Corporation

Dear Naresh Sagar,

We would like to following up on our previous mailer for Roundtable Japan. Over the last 11 years, The Roundtable Japan  – an initiative of Forma Corporation and Smadja & Smadja, has established itself as a major event in terms of prestige, relevance of the agenda and impact. Every year 4 or 5 cabinet ministers join us along with a number of members of Parliament and top business leaders from Japanese corporations, as well as foreign companies operating in Japan.

The Roundtable has become a group of reform-minded individuals in Japan. We limit the number of participants to 150 people because we believe that this number gives a critical mass of relevant business and political interlocutors, and it is small enough to allow for genuine discussion and interaction.

A number of topics that the Roundtable Japan had been instrumental to put at the forefront of the public agenda, are now part of Prime Minister Shinz? Abe agenda.

Your participation in the 12th Roundtable Japan on 2-3 June 2016 in Tokyo will give you the opportunity to be part of a productive dialogue on Japan’s future and will give you some invaluable insights that will feed your business strategy.

For more information please visit:

http://www.roundtablejapan.com

For registration please visit:

I am obviously at your disposal to answer any question you may have and very much look forward to welcoming you in June.

Best Regards,
Yael Smadja
President

Putin won’t take part in nuclear summit

Standard

President Vladimir Putin’s non-participation in the nuclear summit in Washington is due to the lack of mutual action during preliminary preparation, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday. “Moscow believes that the study of the issues related to nuclear safety requires common and joint efforts and mutual consideration of interests and positions in the course of the preliminary work,” RIA Novosti quoted the presidential spokesman as saying. “We experienced a clear deficit in the preliminary study of the issues and topics of the summit, so in this case there will be no participation of the Russian side,” Peskov said.

Aircraft crashes in Two days

RT SHARED A LINK.
Sukhoi Su-25 ground-support fighter jet crashing in a residential area during a training flight in Russia’s Far East some 70 kilometers from the Chinese border.

The jet is seen suddenly going down over buildings and a plume of black smoke rises above the crash site. The pilot managed to eject and is safe. There were no reports of casualties on the ground, but two barns have been destroyed.The close-support aircraft, (NATO reporting name Frogfoot) took off from Chernigovka military airfield on a practice mission, but due to engine malfunction it lost speed, altitude and hit the ground. The pilot managed to divert the aircraft from residential dwellings.Inputs RT news

A South Korean F-16D fighter jet crashed during a mission on Wednesday, but the two pilots safely ejected from the stricken plane, Yonhap reported. The combat airplane plunged into an uninhabited hill in Cheongsong, 322km southeast of Seoul, at 4:06pm without causing any damage to civilians, the Air Force said. The jet based in Chungju, North Chungcheong Province, was conducting a mission.

A small plane crashed as it approached a local airport on the Magdalen Islands just off eastern Quebec, Canada, killing seven people, the Canadian Press reported Tuesday. Police named poor weather conditions such as wind and heavy snow showers as a possible cause of the crash. Police are currently trying to identify the victims. The investigation is in progress.

Roussef’s main partner quits coalition govt

The Brazilian Democratic Movement (PMDB) party has quit President Dilma Rousseff’s coalition government. PMDB has announced late on Tuesday that it would no longer participate in the current government. The decision was made during a leadership meeting, where it was agreed that the six remaining PMDB ministers in Rousseff’s cabinet must resign or face ethics proceedings. The move could deepen the country’s political crisis and push the embattled left-wing leader into impeachment. Impeachment proceedings against Rousseff are based on a government watchdog’s rejection of her administration’s financial books and on a report suggesting that violations of Brazil’s fiscal laws had taken place. The widening corruption probe surrounding state-run oil company Petrobras has turned many against Rousseff. A recent poll by Brazil’s Datafolha institute showed that 68 percent of Brazilians favor Rousseff’s impeachment, but only 11 percent believe they would be better off under her main rival, Michel Temer.

Press Release(29-03-2016):
Smt Maneka Sanjay Gandhi launches the Project of ‘Home for one thousand widows’ at Vrindavan

The Women & Child Development Minister, Smt Maneka Sanjay Gandhi today launched the project of construction of a special Home for one thousand widows at Vrindavan, Mathura. The foundation stone for the Home was laid by Smt Maneka Sanjay Gandhi in the presence of Women Welfare Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Smt Syeda Shadab Fatima. Being set up under the ‘Swadhar Greh Scheme’ of the WCD Ministry, this will be the largest ever Home for widows established or funded by the Government.

Speaking on the occasion, Smt Maneka Sanjay Gandhi said that the widows’ Home will be constructed fully by October this year. It will be a Home with a difference since here widows will be able to learn and get skill development to enable them to use their time productively. The shelter home will give a new life to widows, the Minister hoped.

Addressing the gathering, Women Welfare Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Smt Syeda Shadab Fatima said that there are 4500 widows living in Vrindavan and the current facility under construction will be able to provide shelter for one thousand widows at a time which is a commendable effort.

The shelter Home at Vrindavan has a capacity to house 1000 women and is being constructed on 1.424 hectare of land through National Building Construction Corporation (NBCC) at an estimated cost of 57 Crores (including cost of the land). The design of the Home has been prepared in consultation with HelpAge India and is also ‘old age’ friendly. The Home will consist of ground plus three floors with the facilities of ramp, lifts, supply of adequate electricity, water and other amenities for meeting the requirement of senior citizens and persons with special challenges. The Home, fully funded by the Central Government, is being constructed at Sunrakh Bangar, Pargana Vrindavan, Mathura, Uttar Pradesh.

The Ministry under the Swadhar and Short Stay Home Scheme caters to the primary needs of shelter, food, clothing, medical treatment and care of the women in distress who are without social and economic support. The two schemes have been merged as Swadhar Greh w.e.f. 01.01.2016.
