US Coordinator for Counterterrorism Nathan Sales to Visit Morocco

Rabat – Ambassador Nathan Sales, US Coordinator for Counterterrorism, is traveling to Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco to discuss counterterrorism issues.Sales will “engage in bilateral discussions with his counterparts on countering violent extremism, foreign terrorist fighters, and information sharing,” the State Department said in a media note on Monday, August 27.Sales’s official visit to the three countries began August 26 and continues until August 30, the US State Department said. Sales has led the State Department’s Counterterrorism Bureau since August 2017 and serves as the principal adviser to the US secretary of state on international counterterrorism matters.In January 2018, the US Department of Defense gave Morocco arms equipment worth $18 million to reinforce the country’s special forces units combating terrorism, in light of the threat ISIS poses to North African countries. The US allocated $60 million as part of the Pentagon’s security assistance to allies in the MENA region.‘Morocco is a stable, security-exporting partner’The State Department lauded Morocco’s efforts to counter terrorism and its strategy to prevent violent extremism.In December 2017, the State Department published an analysis in its official blog “DipNote” which stated, “The United States and the Kingdom of Morocco are leading a global effort to address homegrown terrorism.”According to a 2016 report by the State Department on terrorism in the MENA region, “Morocco is a stable security-exporting partner in North Africa and is the only African nation to contribute military assets to the Defeat-ISIS Coalition campaign in Syria and Iraq.”Morocco’s counterterrorism efforts “effectively mitigated the risk of terrorism” in 2016, according to the same report.The State Department also praised the efficiency of Moroccan law enforcement units and the kingdom’s interventions which “aggressively targeted and effectively dismantled terrorist cells within the country by leveraging intelligence collection, police work, and collaboration with regional and international partners.” read more

Jason Kenney calls Bank of Canada heads workforfree advice wrong message

TORONTO — Federal Employment Minister Jason Kenney says he disagrees with the Bank of Canada governor’s suggestion that jobless university graduates should work for free until the job market improves.Kenny told reporters in Toronto today that he thinks it is the “wrong message” to send to young people.Speaking to a House of Commons committee Tuesday, Stephen Poloz suggested young Canadians struggling to find work should acquire more experience through unpaid internships or volunteering as they wait for the economy to pick up.Kenny says it is preferable that the youth take paid positions that give them that experience.Bank of Canada’s Poloz to jobless youth living with parents: Work for freeJoe Oliver says Canada needs more paid work after Bank of Canada head urges youth to work for freeThe central banker’s remarks were criticized by advocates for young workers, who said they show Poloz is out of touch with the challenges young would-be workers face every day.Statistics Canada’s latest job numbers said the unemployment rate for people aged 15 to 24 was 13.5 per cent in September, almost double the country’s overall rate of 6.8 per cent for the same month. read more

Annan extends mandate of UN mission in Central African Republic through 2006

In an exchange of letters, Mr. Annan told the Security Council that “the authorities of the Central African Republic have advised my Representative that they would like the United Nations Peacebuilding Support Office in the Central African Republic (BONUCA) to continue to assist them in their efforts towards building lasting peace, following the restoration of constitutional order in their country.”He recommends extending BONUCA’s mandate through 2006 to enable it to help the country build on the success of its recent elections – a proposal which was accepted by the Council.Support from BONUCA, particularly in strengthening political dialogue and promoting the rule of law, would help to create a climate conducive to reform, reconstruction and development, he said.President François Bozizé, while acknowledging that the primary responsibility for raising living standards rests with his Government, has stressed the need for greater involvement by the international community “in view of the major post-election challenges facing the Central African Republic,” Mr. Annan said.The challenges hindering the country’s recovery included the upsurge in cross-border banditry and the proliferation of weapons in the sub-region, he said.In view of the additional responsibilities, the Representative heading BONUCA would become a Special Representative with the rank of Assistant Secretary-General, according to the letter. read more

The Self Help Housing Scheme resident said she saw her television shaking and decided to put it along with other items on her wall divider on the floor. When she left the premises to go outside, the entire street was filled and neighbours told her, her house was seen shaking the hardest. James expressed her belief that was it not for the sturdy support posts, the house would have collapsed.On Tuesday, Lindeners came out onto the streets when they realised their homes were shaking. Mothers were seen gathering their children together in the streets of Amelia’s Ward as a safety protocol. Some persons were even noticeably praying.

She recalled not being worried until she saw her neighbour’s glass door shaking. “I saw Miss White glass door shaking and I said this serious, then I came outside and saw everybody on the road.”One taxi driver said he was driving along when he heard all the alarms on the parked cars going off, and then his own vehicle began to shake.The tremor was as a result of 7.3 magnitude earthquake that occurred off the coast of Venezuela.The effects were felt strongest in Trinidad with a magnitude of 6.8.Guyana, Grenada, and Columbia also felt the aftershocks of the tremor which lasted minutes. Reports out of Region One, Barima-Waini suggest that the area felt it stronger for close to five minutes. read more

Qatar Airways could launch Indias 13th domestic carrier

first_imgQatar Airways flight attendants pose at the exhibition stand of the company at the International Tourism Trade Fair (ITB) in Berlin, Germany, March 9, 2016.Reuters fileIndia, currently the world’s fastest-growing civil aviation market, could see a 13th player giving competition to the existing carriers such as IndiGo, Air India, Jet Airways and SpiceJet. Qatar Airways, the national carrier of Arab nation Qatar, is planning to enter India via a fully-owned airline.Also read: Qatar Airways to fly barred nationals after US judge blocks Trump’s travel banIf the proposals submitted by Qatar Airways goes through, it will be first success for India ever since it relaxed FDI norms in civil avaition last June.”We will have a 100% owned domestic carrier in India that will belong to both QR (Qatar Airways) and our state investment arm as India has now allowed foreign investment in domestic carriers within India. We will soon be making an application to that effect,” Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker said at the  ITB Berlin travel show on Wednesday.The Doha-headquartered airlines will have 49 percent stake while the balance will be held by the Qatar government’s investment arm, the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA).The swiftness of the Gulf carrier’s likely offer came as a surprise to Indian civil aviation authorities. “I did not expect this (so soon),” Rajiv Nayan Choubey, civil aviation secretary said on Wednesday. “We will await for the application and will process it as per government policy,” he added.India initiated a slew of FDI reforms last June spanning defence, civil aviation and other sectors.The specific provisions of civil avaition read: “As per the present FDI policy, foreign investment up to 49% is allowed under automatic route in Scheduled Air Transport Service/ Domestic Scheduled Passenger Airline and regional Air Transport Service.”It has now been decided to raise this limit to 100%, with FDI up to 49% permitted under automatic route and FDI beyond 49% through Government approval. For NRIs, 100% FDI will continue to be allowed under automatic route.”However, foreign airlines would continue to be allowed to invest in capital of Indian companies operating scheduled and non-scheduled air-transport services up to the limit of 49% of their paid up capital and subject to the laid down conditions in the existing policy.”  India’s aviation market is thriving and growing at an exponential rate. Passenger traffic volume data released by the civil aviation regulatory showed that the sector posted 25 percent growth in January, 23 percent in December and 22.45 percent, year-on-year.India is projected to replace UK as the third-largest aviation market by 2026.  Currently, a couple of Indian carriers have foreign investment — Abu Dhabi’s Etihad has a 24 percent stake in Jet Airways, Tata Group holds 51 percent stake in Vistara and AirAsia India each, with Singapore Airlines and AirAsia Berhad having the remaining 49 percent in them respectively. Aviation stocks were trading in a narrow range on Thursday on the BSE. Interglobe Aviation, which owns budget carrier IndiGo, was up 0.08 percent at Rs 880, SpiceJet was trading 6.46 percent higher 82 and Jet Airways was trading at Rs 452, up 0.42 percent. AirAsia India, Vistara, Air India and Go Air are not listed on stock exchanges.

AP Interview Palestinian PM warns of cash crisis

first_imgSome $200 million in U.S. aid were held up by Congress last year, a sum the Obama administration hopes to deliver to the Palestinians this year, along with an additional $250 million in aid. “We have made it clear that we think the money should go forward,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said last week.The Palestinian Authority has relied heavily on foreign aid since the outbreak of the second Palestinian uprising in 2000. It has received hundreds of millions of dollars each year since then, but has struggled to wean itself off foreign support, in part because harsh Israeli restrictions on Palestinian trade and movement have hurt economic growth.Only a year ago, Fayyad said he hoped to increase local revenues, including through spending cuts and higher taxes for wealthier Palestinians. He even set 2013 as a target for financing the government’s day-to-day operations with local revenues. However, his tax plan was met by widespread protests and modest economic growth slowed.Now he’s not even sure how he will cover the government payroll, his heftiest monthly budget item.The Palestinian Authority employs some 150,000 people, including civil servants and members of the security forces. About 60,000 live in Gaza and served under Abbas before the Hamas takeover, but continue to draw salaries even though they’ve since been replaced by Hamas loyalists. Comments   Share   Associated PressRAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) – The Palestinian self-rule government is in “extreme jeopardy” because of an unprecedented financial crisis, largely because Arab countries have failed to send hundreds of millions of dollars in promised aid, the Palestinian prime minister said Sunday.The cash crunch has gradually worsened in recent years, and the Palestinian Authority now has reached the point of not being able to pay the salaries of about 150,000 government employees, Salam Fayyad told The Associated Press. The number of Palestinian poor is bound to quickly double to 50 percent of the population of roughly 4 million if the crisis continues, he said. 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean Top Stories The U.N. bid gave the Palestinians new diplomatic leverage by affirming the borders of a future state of Palestine in lands Israel captured in 1967, but changed little in the day-to-day lives of Palestinians.In an apparent response to the U.N. move, Israel in December halted its monthly transfer of about $100 million in tax rebates it collects on behalf of the Palestinians. That sum amounts to about one-third of the monthly operating costs of the Palestinian Authority. Fayyad said he now only takes in about $50 million a month in revenues.Israel has said it used the withheld money to settle Palestinian Authority debt to Israeli companies, and it’s not clear whether the transfers will resume. In the meantime, the 22-nation Arab League has not kept a promise to make up for the funds Israel withholds, Fayyad said.The head of the League has written to member states, urging them to pay the $100 million, Mohammed Sobeih, a league official, said Sunday.Fayyad pinned most of the blame for the Palestinian Authority’s financial troubles on delinquent Arab donors, saying they are “not fulfilling their pledge of support in accordance with Arab League resolutions.”European countries kept their aid commitments, he said. Sponsored Stories Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion projectcenter_img How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation “The status quo is not sustainable,” Fayyad said in an interview at his West Bank office.The Palestinian Authority, set up two decades ago as part of interim peace deals with Israel, is on the “verge of being completely incapacitated,” Fayyad warned. Only a year ago, he said he expected to make great strides in weaning his people off foreign aid.The self-rule government was meant to be temporary and replaced by a state of Palestine, which was to be established through negotiations with Israel. However, those talks repeatedly broke down, and for the past four years the two sides have been unable to agree on the terms of renewing the negotiations.In late November, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas won U.N. recognition of a state of Palestine in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, overriding Israeli objections to the largely symbolic step. On Sunday, Abbas asked his West Bank-based government to prepare for replacing the words “Palestinian Authority” with “State of Palestine” in all public documents, including ID cards, driving licenses and passports.Israeli officials declined comment, including on whether Israel would prevent Palestinians with new ID cards and passports from crossing borders and checkpoints. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day In recent months, the government has paid salaries in installments.Fayyad said he managed to pay half the November salaries by getting another bank loan, using as collateral Arab League promises of future support. He said he can’t pay the rest of the November salaries, let alone start thinking about December wages.The Palestinian Authority already owes local banks more than $1.3 billion and can’t get more loans. It also owes hundreds of millions of dollars to private businesses, including suppliers to hospitals, some of whom have stopped doing business with the government.The crisis “has put us in extreme jeopardy,” Fayyad said.The malaise has sparked growing protests. Civil servants have held warning strikes. On Sunday, their union called for four days of strikes over the next two weeks.Walid Abu Muhsin, a government employee who makes 4,000 shekels ($1,000) a month, said he received only $500 in November, and his bank deducted 50 percent of that for car and home loans, leaving the father of three with $250 to live on.“I am spending from the few savings I have,” he said.Fayyad said he’s thought about quitting, but won’t leave during a crisis. He was appointed by Abbas in 2007, after the Islamic militant Hamas seized Gaza by force. Hamas has received money from Iran, while Qatar last year pledged some $400 million for housing projects in Gaza. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Early signs of cataracts in your parents and how to help Repeated attempts to heal the Palestinian rift have failed. Meanwhile, recent surveys suggest support for Hamas is on the rise, in part because it extracted what were perceived as Israeli concessions after a round of heavy cross-border fighting late last year.The failure of the Palestinian Authority to deliver on many of its promises, Fayyad said, “has produced a reality of a doctrinal win” for Hamas.He said the international community must decide whether it wants the Palestinian Authority, once seen as key to any Mideast peace deal, to survive.“A weak Palestinian Authority cannot be an effective player if you are all the time preoccupied with making ends meet,” he said.___Associated Press writers Aya Batrawy in Cairo and Ibrahim Barzak in Gaza City, Gaza, contributed to this report.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
