North Korea hydrogen Bomb test prompts global condemnation

North Korea’s largest nuclear test to date has been condemned on Sunday in the world, several leaders demand new sanctions and US President Donald Trump said the “appeasement” would not work. The explosion of what North Korea said was that an advanced hydrogen bomb arrived a few days after firing a missile over Japan.

Trump, who said after the launch of last week’s missile that talking to Pyongyang “is not the answer,” tweeted Sunday the test showed that North Korean words and actions continue ‘to be very hostile and dangerous to States United’ ‘. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said he would put new sanctions to finally cut off all of North Korea’s world trade.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron have said they intend to tighten the sanctions of the European Union. “This latest provocation of the leader in Pyongyang has reached a new dimension,” the German government said in a statement after Merkel and Macron discussed the problem over the phone.

British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson said: “They (North Korea) seem to be approaching a hydrogen bomb that, if installed on a successful missile, would undoubtedly present a new threat order, adding that there were no military solutions desirable.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said the UN Security Council must urgently consider further steps. Russia has taken a cautious tone. “Under the prevailing conditions, it is absolutely essential to remain calm, to refrain from any action that could lead to further escalation of tensions,” Russia’s Foreign Ministry said, adding that North Korea runs the risk of “serious consequences “.

Later, Russian President Vladimir Putin met with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, in China, where they agreed to “deal adequately” with the crisis, Chinese news agency Xinhua said. “Both leaders agreed to respect the goal of denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula and maintain close communication and coordination to deal with the new situation,” Xinhua said.

Earlier, China urged North Korea to end “false” actions and said it would fully implement the UN resolutions on the country. As North Korea’s most important trading partner, China’s position – a permanent member of the UN Security Council – will be monitored closely. A Japanese government source said there would be pressure on Beijing to impose an oil embargo.

“They will probably finally act but … it may not be before their October convention,” the source said. “Russia has no real influence over North Korea, it’s China that counts.” Trump said that North Korea had become “a great threat and shame for China” and that Beijing had tried but did not solve the problem. What he called “talk of appeasement” of South Korea would not work because “they (the North Koreans) only understand one thing!

The International Atomic Energy Agency, which has no access to North Korea, described the nuclear test, the sixth since 2006 Pyongyang, “an extremely lamentable act” that was “completely ignoring the repeated demands of the international community.”

SC asks WhatsApp, why did you change your privacy policy after FB takeover

SC asks WhatsApp, why did you change your privacy policy after FB takeover

The Supreme Court on Monday asked the WhatsApp online messaging service why it changed its policy of non-sharing data from its users after its acquisition by the social networking site Facebook in 2016 to allow sharing of the attributes of its users.

“You did not share it in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015. Why do you want to share it in 2016?” Asked the court of confinement of Judge Dipak Misra, Judge A.K. Sikri, Justice Amitava Roy, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Judge Mohan M. Shantanagoudar.
“There is a third also on your network,” said Judge Misra, as it was pointed out that although the user’s name is not shared, “people’s attributes are shared.”

In defending the new privacy policy, senior advisor Sidharth Luthra, who appeared for the service, told the banker that they did not even know what was shared between two people using the online messaging service and it was ” Free and voluntary “.

He stated that the petitioners and others, including the intervener, wish to use WhatsApp but do not wish to comply with its terms and conditions.

“We have a billion users, there is not a single complaint that part of the encrypted message was shared,” said Kapil Sibal, a senior lawyer.

The court was informed during the hearing of a plea by the applicants Karmanya Singh Sareen and Shreya Sethi who challenged the Delhi High Court’s order of 23 September, allowing WhatsApp to implement its new privacy policy But preventing it from sharing data from its users were collected until September 25, 2016, with Facebook or any other related company.

Appearing for Internet Freedom Foundation, Senior Advisor KVViswanathan told the court that “the unregulated and brown data and metadata collection and collocation by WhatsApp, Facebook and their class … create a cooling effect on their Freedom of thought and expression, directly affecting their fundamental right under Article 19 (1) (a) of the Constitution “.

Referring to the rights guaranteed by Article 19 (1) (a) and Article 21 of the Constitution and Article 12 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, he stated: “… these guarantees not only create A negative right against the State of interference but also imposed a positive obligation on the State to enact the necessary measures to ensure that these freedoms are exercised in a meaningful way “.

Senior lawyer K. K.Venugopal, who belongs to Facebook, questioned the maintainability of the petitions by Sareen and Sethi, as he began his arguments that will continue on Tuesday

3 years of Modi govt: India everywhere is the PM's mantra

3 years of Modi govt: India everywhere is the PM’s mantra

When veteran diplomat Hardeep Puri retired from the Indian Foreign Service (IFS) as India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, he frankly confessed that India’s domestic policy had prevented India from claiming its place in the world. “In New York, there were times when I wanted to have a stronger government in New Delhi. One of my remorse is that we have worked so hard and after 17 years, we went to the Security Council (as a non-permanent member), but government

New Delhi was completely concerned about internal problems “said in an interview below Business Standard. To cause problems such as extending the Security Council or the permanent members of the Security Council of India, it would have been nice to have a stronger government in Delhi. But at the time, all the government was worried about was the 2G spectrum scam and how to handle alliance partners. ”

That changed in 2014, when Narendra Modi came to power. In a conversation with reporters, a month after being appointed prime minister, Modi agreed that with a majority of one party, it was much easier to operate internationally – India has taken more seriously.
Three years later, the subject took over, diplomats, citing examples of how Modi’s strength in his house makes India more efficient to make his point, either in relation to Bangladesh (a country with which relations Of India saw an improvement of 360 groups, notably vis-√†-vis northeastern India); Or in the United States (which provides comfort unequivocal liability in civil liability law by leveraging most of the National Democratic Alliance in Lok Sabha to amend the law). According to Harsh V Pant, a distinguished member and head of the Strategic Studies Research Program Observer Foundation: “Three factors seem to have had a significant influence (in the minor Indo-US relations Modi as PM): the belief that development priorities Of India can not be met without substantial cooperation with the United States, the strong political leadership of Modi enjoys its own party and the Indian Parliament, and structural changes in the security environment of India caused by an aggressive China and its growing strategic convergence with Pakistan. ”

In this context, many have found that Modi’s initial curve of the Indian diaspora was confusing. Why would the diaspora, when the parliamentary majority, Modi could make the internal reform that the world would like, is watching India with envy? One of the men who led the consciousness, Chauthaiwale Vijay, who heads the foreign Friends of the BJP, said: “They (the Indian diaspora) can tell (investors) about the appropriate changes taking place in India and remove the image Of India as an inefficient place to visit and invest, “he told The Washington Post. Sreime Chaulia, professor and dean of the Jindal School of International Affairs, OP Jindal Global University, who wrote a book on Modi’s foreign policy, said: “Diaspora diplomacy of Modi Doctrine adds to international influence India is a multiplier of Which makes the presence of India in distant parts of the world more coherent, organized and visible at grassroots level. The benefits of people and public relations with the Indian diaspora that was activated by Modi, are at the center of the objective The prime minister’s most important strategist, to transform India into “peak power” on the world stage. ”

However, TP Sreenivasan, a former IFS officer who has dealt with the indigenous communities of the United States, Fiji, Kenya and Europe, delicate notes of caution: “The Indian diaspora is more prosperous than before and participation in the development of India The Indians abroad are aware of their opportunities in India.At the same time, new concerns about the large-scale return of the Indians or their participation in global terrorism are growing. Is enough.We must have a comprehensive plan that includes both the center and the states to intelligently invest remittances and find other livelihoods for those who return there. “

Brazil's Temer wins Congressional votes to block graft charge

Brazil’s Temer wins Congressional votes to block graft charge

Brazil’s Temer wins Congressional votes to block graft charge

BRASILIA: The lower house of the Brazilian Congress voted Wednesday to dismiss a corruption charge against President Michel Temer for allegedly accepting bribes, which prevented him from facing a possible Supreme Court trial he could expel from his post.

Temer has won enough votes to avoid opposition to obtain two-thirds of the votes required to convey the corruption case in higher court.

However, his support was less than expected and raised doubts about the future of his economic reform program and how he will vote in future votes in Congress over other charges could be filed against him.

The final count showed 263 deputies vote in favor of Temer, 227 votes against him – well below the 300 votes in favor of President Beto Mansur, scourge of deputy government in the lower house, predicted early Wednesday.

This jeopardizes the risk that lawmakers even take a serious reform of Brazil’s pension system is crucial to fill a general budget deficit and increase investor confidence in an economy emerging out of recession.

Several key lawmakers told Reuters in recent weeks that they were inclined to suspend this effort until the October 2018 presidential election.

But Temer promised after the vote to continue saying that “we will adopt all the reforms that the country needs.”
And he added: “Now is the time to invest in our country Brazil is ready to start developing.”

Unstable ground
Opposition lawmakers, carrying double-bottomed briefcases, sang “Out of the Way” on the floor of the house early in the hectic day session.

The main coalition, Temer, the Brazilian Social Democratic Party (PSDB), which is trying to win next year’s presidential election, is divided on the need to support Temer, who shares economic policies or distances himself from his corrupt government.

PSDB leader Ricardo Tripoli, seeking tax approval, said Temer should be investigated, “not because we want to expel the president, but because Brazilians are tired of the suspicion that surrounds their politicians “.

The fact of protecting only thin Temer of the credibility of Brazil’s political system, said Tripoli.

Shares and Brazil’s currency rose early Wednesday after a vote in the closure has scored a victory for Temer and firm support for its reform program to reduce spending and restore confidence in government accounts.

Brazil’s chief prosecutor, Rodrigo Janot, asked Temer to organize to finally receive a total of 38 million reals ($ 12.2 million) in bribes of the largest meat to monitor the world JBS SA in exchange for political favors.

Temer and his legal team have denied the allegations.
His supporters said Janot had provided no evidence that he had violated the law.

Legislator Paulo Abi-Ackel, PSDB, credited Temer to return the economy, falling inflation, interest rates and record unemployment, and signs of renewed growth.

Ready to talk to N. Korea: Tillerson

Ready to talk to N. Korea: Tillerson

Ready to talk to N. Korea: Tillerson

“We are not looking for a regime change, we try to convey to the North Koreans that we are not the enemy”

The United States is willing to talk to North Korea, it is always in agreement with the condition that such talks move to its désannulation said on Tuesday Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, reiterating the position of the United States hitherto unacceptable for Pyongyang .

M. Tillerson has not ruled out a military attack on North Korea in statements that were not strictly in the State Department on Tuesday.

Rooting for a diplomatic breakthrough in a rapidly unfolding crisis as the first major test of the six-month administration of President Donald Trump, M. Tillerson said:

“We have reaffirmed our position with regard to North Korea, as we do, we are not looking for a regime change; we are not looking for the fall of the regime, we do not seek accelerated reunification

Peninsula; We are not looking for an excuse to send our military north of the 38th parallel (the border between the two North and South Koreas) … and we try to convey to the North Koreans that we are not the enemy, we are not their threat, but You are presenting an unacceptable threat and you have to respond. ”

North Korea held two intercontinental ballistic missile tests last month and its leader, Kim Jong-un, said that “the entire American continent” is already at hand. The United States took the threat seriously.

Last month, national security adviser H. R. McMaster said that war plans were in place, such as the president. CIA chief Mike Pompeo recently said that regime change could also be an option.

The United States and its allies flew bombers on the Korean Peninsula on Sunday by demonstrating strength after the second intercontinental ballistic missile test.

Little by little, as tensions grew, South Korean President Moon Jae-in has committed to implementing more interceptor missile systems – Terminal High Altitude Area of American Defense manufacture, or THAAD – in response, indicating a turning in his position.

About 30,000 US troops are in South Korea, which will be the first target of any retaliation from North Korea.

Meanwhile, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said Tuesday that M. Trump had assured him that if “thousands of people die”, they will die in North Korea, America will not.

“There is a military option to destroy the program of North Korea (missiles) and North Korea itself … If there is going to be a war to stop, it will be there.If thousands of people die they are going to die there, they are not going to die Here and (Trump) told me to my face, “said M. Graham on a television show.

In response to Mr. Graham’s remarks, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, “The president has obviously been very outspoken about how North Korea feels.

We are weighing all the options, keeping all the options on the table, and as we have said many times, we will not share what we do.

What we do and don`t know about Venezuela`s new Assembly

What we do and don`t know about Venezuela`s new Assembly

What we do and don`t know about Venezuela`s new Assembly

Caracas: Venezuelan Constituent Assembly – whose legitimacy is questioned by the opposition and abroad – began work on Friday with broad powers and an indefinite term under President Nicolas Maduro.

What do we know – and do not know – the new body? The Constituent Assembly will resume until the room occupied by the Congress controlled by the opposition, the National Assembly.

One of its main members, former Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez, told AFP that the two groups would operate in the same building. It remains to be seen, however.
The opposition has called for a protest in Caracas on Thursday before the “fraudulent” Constituent Assembly.

The Constituent Assembly has the power to dissolve the National Assembly if it deems it appropriate. Its main task is to rewrite the Constitution, which Maduro said, will solve the economic and political crisis.

According to the election authority, more than 40 percent of voters to 20 million people voted Sunday in an election that designates the Constituent Assembly of 545 members.

However, a British company that provides technology to vote, Smartmatic said that the figure inflated official participation – “adulterated” by at least one million voters.

The National Jury of Elections denies it, rejecting it as “unfounded opinion of the company.”

The United States, the European Union and a dozen Latin American countries said they did not recognize the new assembly. Washington has sanctioned Maduro directly by calling him a “dictator.”

Of the 545 members of the new Assembly, two-thirds were selected by district vote and the remainder to represent different social and industrial sectors.

All are loyal Maduro – including his wife and son – because the opposition boycotted the vote.

The opposition fears that the new body must be a caching entity that Maduro says automatically.

The President undertook to submit a future draft constitution to a referendum. Meanwhile, the Constituent Assembly has executive and legislative power overcoming any other institution. It is not known how long the Constituent Assembly will be in session. Its members will have to decide.

If it dissolves the National Assembly or gets rid of the Attorney General’s office, which was threatened, Maduro wants parliamentary immunity was raised opposition lawmakers, who said that it had incited violence during events.

He called for a “truth commission” to prosecute the “crimes” of the conservative opposition, but it is unclear whether the new set will continue in this way.

Advocate General Luisa Ortega was a thorn in the Maduro camp for four months. She was loyal to her predecessor Hugo Chavez, but Maduro said she violates the constitution and rule of law in Venezuela.

She said that the new body has no legitimacy, the dictatorial ambitions of the president.

Iran Says US Breaching Nuclear Deal As Hassan Rouhani Starts New Term

Iran Says US Breaching Nuclear Deal As Hassan Rouhani Starts New Term

Iran Says US Breaching Nuclear Deal As Hassan Rouhani Starts New Term

Teheran Iran said on Thursday that the new US sanctions constituted a violation of its nuclear agreement with world powers, putting pressure on President Hassan Rouhani as he began his second term.

Rouhani was sworn in by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei late on the day after his re-election in May.

It is less than 24 hours after US President Donald Trump has confirmed new sanctions against Iran.

Tehran said the new measures violate the 2015 agreement with world powers, which have facilitated sanctions in exchange for restrictions on its nuclear program, an agreement that Trump has repeatedly threatened to break.

“We believe the nuclear deal has been violated and we will respond appropriately,” Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi told state television.

“Of course, do not fall into the trap of US policy and Trump, and our response will be considered very carefully.”

The growing crisis creates a difficult situation Rouhani, a 68-year-old moderator who won re-election largely to his efforts to repair relations with the West.

“It’s an unfortunate moment,” said Ellie Geranmayeh, an Iranian analyst at the European Council on Foreign Relations.

“What is absolutely essential is the way Europeans are positioning themselves,” he said, emphasizing growing trade ties with Europe and its continued support for the nuclear deal.

Britain, France and Germany – which signed the agreement with Russia, China and the US. – are the founders of the agreement and criticized the administration for Trump threatened to demolish.

The French giant of total energy has defied US pressure in July over the signing of a $ 1 billion gas deal with Iran.
“What the Iranians now bancent, perhaps overestimated, is that Europe is going to safeguard and build the business and make it too politically costly for Trump to tear, or at least prove to Washington that if it withdraws to do it alone, Geranmayeh said.

Hard-line opposition

The International Atomic Energy Agency has repeatedly confirmed that Iran is clinging to its commitments under the agreement – a position that was reluctantly accepted by the White House Trump.

But with Iran taking the lead in the Middle East, through its support for the powers in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq, US lawmakers seem determined to increase tensions.

Meanwhile, Rouhani faces challenges closer to home, opponents in difficulty arguing that aggressive moves prove that Washington would never have confidence in the United States.

A war of words has also erupted between the Rouhani office and the Revolutionary Guard after criticizing its role in the economy – although they tried to bury the ax with a public demonstration of unity.

This week, the reformist allies Rouhani also joined the chorus of criticism, attacking the press that continues to appoint a male cabinet.

Maoists abduct, release three gatemen in Bihar; 25 trains delayed

Maoist rebels kidnapped three strong janitors at railway crossings in Bihar, altering the movement of trains for nearly seven hours in the Patna-Howrah section, officials announced Thursday.

The movement of about 25 trains was halted until the road reopened at 7 am Thursday, a high-powered HT train said.

The three railroad workers, who retired after midnight, were released at 2 am after security forces launched an operation in Lakhisarai, one of Bihar’s 15 districts affected by the Maoist insurgency.

Sources said rebels kidnapped railroad employees for defying a week-long ruling from the martrers observed by the banned CPI (Maoist) and its army, the PLGA, July 28, the anniversary of the death Of Charu Mazumdar who is considered the father of the revolt left in India.

About 100 rebels were involved in the hijacking of crosses less than 10 kilometers away, said SM Khopde, inspector general of the Bhagalpur area. The rebels also threatened the driver and caretaker of a passenger train.

Following the abduction, several trains – including Howrah-Amritsar Punjab – were stopped at different locations until the road is clear in the morning.

“All railroad employees have been released and are safe,” said Rajesh Kumar, the spokesman for Eastern HT Railways.

Perpetual for four Maoists, RI 10 years for one, in the case of Sanjay Singh DFO murder
The extraction area, about 180 km from the city of Patna, is located along the border with Jharkhand, one of the most unusual Indian states, the most affected.

Police sources said security forces, including the anti-Maoist force, CoBRA – CRPF – launched operations in the Gopalpur forest, leading to a brief exchange of gunfire.
The rebels, however, managed to escape deep into the jungles under the cover of darkness.

The deputy director general of the police (barracks) Sanjiv Kumar Singhal said that all possible routes used by the Maoists to move were sealed to catch the rebels.

Sources said a mobile tower operated by a private company was also burned. The rebels often turn to infrastructure.

The incident came hours after the government informed Parliament that incidents of violence by the Maoists – officially called the far left – have steadily declined in the past five years.

In a written response, Minister of State in the country Hansraj Gangaram Ahir Rajya Sabha reported that 1,048 Maoist attacks were reported in 2016, compared to 1089 incidents in 2015.

He said that 213 civilians and 65 security personnel died in Maoist attacks in 2016 compared to the killing of 171 civilians and 59 security agents in 2015.

The Maoists profess to fight for the emancipation of the poor and oppressed, but the government says that most of the rebel outfits were mainly involved in kidnapping for ransom.
