Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko claimed his country was "prepared for total war" as fighting continued Sunday, (16/11/14), around the rebel stronghold of Donetsk.

After a week in which Kiev said several unmarked armoured convoys of troops crossed the Russian border to reinforce rebels in the east, Poroshenko toughened his rhetoric, telling the German daily Bild: "I am not afraid of a war with Russian troops."......................Ukraine 'ready for total war' says Poroshenko

    The United States and its partners may toughen sanctions against Russia if Moscow fails to change its policy towards Ukraine, the US Department of State has said.

    “We have a broad understanding and a similar point of view with our European partners with respect to the steps Russia needs to take and the ways in which the costs to Russia should increase if they fail to abide by the agreements,” spokesman Jeff Rathke said at a press briefing on Friday.

    Washington remains “in contact with the European partners” and continues discussions on the issue.

    Rathke insisted however that “there’s no military resolution to the crisis in eastern Ukraine.”.................http://en.itar-tass.com/world/761120

  4. Islamic State (IS) fighters attacked a government complex in the heart of Ramadi on Friday, local officials said, part of an apparently coordinated assault to seize full control of the provincial capital west of Baghdad....

    Gunmen fired from rooftops at the buildings, which house the Anbar governorate building and police headquarters, while security forces and tribal fighters tried to halt militants.

    Mosques broadcast appeals for reinforcements to prevent the Sunni militants taking full control of Ramadi, which would be a major setback for government forces after they broke an IS siege of Iraq's biggest oil refinery this week.

    Most of Ramadi, about 90 kilometers west of Baghdad, and the surrounding Sunni Muslim province of Anbar is already held by IS. It also seized much of northern Iraq from the Shiite-led government in June, plunging Iraq into its worst security crisis since the overthrow of Saddam Hussein in 2003.

    In a prime time televised address Thursday night, Obama said that he would take executive actions on U.S. imigration policy to protect from deportation five million undocumented immigrants living in the county.

    Under the president’s plan, those who entered the country without proper documentation but have lived in the U.S. for at least five years, and whose children are either U.S. citizens or lawful residents, can apply to stay in the U.S. "without fear of deportation." That will require applicants to register, pass a background check, and pay their "fair share of taxes."..................http://www.aa.com.tr/en/news/424402--lawmaker-us-house-will-act-against-obamas-immigration-policy

  28. Alerte aux inondations dans l'Etat de New York: 600 000 personnes concernées ...

    Des secteurs de l'Etat de New York (nord-est des Etats-Unis), où des chutes de neige record ont fait au moins 14 morts, ont été placés samedi en état d'alerte aux inondations en raison du redoux attendu, ont annoncé les services de météorologie.

    L'ouest de l'Etat, dans la région de Buffalo, était jusque-là placé en état de vigilance aux inondations. En cas d'alerte, il est demandé aux habitants de prendre des précautions, notamment en nettoyant les égouts devant chez eux et en retirant les objets de valeur des caves. Un niveau supérieur d'alerte peut être déclenché en cas d'inondations imminentes ou en cours. Plus de 600 000 personnes vivent dans les secteurs concernés, où des milliers d'entre elles, en particulier dans les villes au sud de Buffalo, ont été coincées dans leurs maisons pendant près d'une semaine.

    Vendredi, le responsable du comté d'Erié, Mark Poloncarz, avait estimé que les inondations pourraient commencer dimanche et pourraient atteindre rapidement par endroits des hauteurs de 1,50 m à 1,80 m.

    James Hughes, former British infantryman who fought in Afghanistan, is understood to be in northern Syria backing Kurds in their fight against militants belonging to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the daily said.

    Information gleaned from Hughes’ Facebook profile shows that he left the British army this year after five-year service.

    Hughes, who is now a de facto “mercenary,” is fighting on the behalf of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units, the YPG. He is not alone as his compatriot Jamie Read, whose Facebook page shows that he trained with the French army, is fighting alongside his friend.

    Vladimir Putin said in an interview with Andrei Vandenko, the author of the TASS project Top Officials, he is not planning to remain Russia’s president for life as this is detrimental for the country, but has not ruled out that he could run for the post in 2018.

    Answering a question whether the president’s chair is forever with him, Putin said: “No.” “This is not good and detrimental for the country and I do not need it as well,” he explained.

    “You see I am in such position that there is nothing secret…” the president said.

    Le chef de l'Etat, qui entame lundi une tournée en Italie et en France, et rencontrera le pape François, a donné dimanche sa première interview à un journal occidental, dans lequel il revient en détail notamment sur le conflit israélo-palestinien et la Libye.

    "Nous sommes prêts à envoyer des forces militaires à l'intérieur d'un Etat palestinien. Nous aiderions la police locale et rassurerions les Israéliens par notre rôle de garant. Pas pour toujours, bien sûr. Pour le temps nécessaire à rétablir la confiance. Mais d'abord doit exister un Etat palestinien où envoyer des troupes", souligne le président du plus grand pays arabe.

    Il rappelle qu'il "faudra du temps pour rétablir la confiance, mais n'est-ce pas ce qui est arrivé avec Israël après que nous ayons fait la paix" (en allusion aux accords de Camp David en 1979).

    De cette proposition d'envoi de forces, "j'ai parlé longuement avec le Premier ministre Benjamin Netanyahu" et aussi "avec Abou Mazen", le président de l'Autorité palestinienne Mahmoud Abbas, a-t-il assuré.

    Evoquant le takfirisme qui croît notamment dans le Sinaï, il affirme que Daech est "seulement une des faces d'une même médaille" d'un terrorisme "qui a tant de visages". Il appelle les Européens à "la sécurité commune, la lutte commune contre le terrorisme". "Si ce n'est pas commun, cela ne fonctionnera pas.

    Rebels fighting President Bashar Assad's regime in Syria are being driven into alliances with the Islamic State group, The Guardian reported on Sunday, based on a series of interviews.

    While fighters from the Free Syrian Army are joining the group, also known as ISIS or ISIL, civilian support in the terror group has also swelled.

    "All the locals here wonder why the U.S. coalition never came to rescue them from Assad’s machine guns, but run to fight ISIS when it took a few pieces of land," an FSA commander named Abu Zeid was quoted as saying...............http://www.haaretz.com/news/middle-east/1.628208

  53. Bolivia's President Evo Morales pushes overdue meeting as Peru cuts Bolivia from Atlantic-Pacific rail route....

    Bolivia’s president demanded face-to-face talks Sunday with his Peruvian counterpart after Peru changed the route of a $10 billion transcontinental railroad, local media reported.

    Peruvian President Ollanta announced last Wednesday the 2,175-mile (3,500 km) project linking the Atlantic and Pacific oceans would bypass Bolivia for “reasons of national interest.”

    Seen as critical in easing the landlocked country’s dependence on Chilean ports, Bolivia had understood as recent as July’s BRICS summit that the railroad would pass through the northern city of Cobija, connecting the respective Brazilian and Peruvian ports of Santos and Ilo.

    “There’s still a bilateral meeting pending with Peru,” Bolivia’s President Evo Morales told state radio station Patria Nueva. “It would be important to develop this issue [the inter-oceanic train].”

    Discussions set to take place nine months ago on the train have not yet materialized.

    Bolivia could build the route “cheaper and shorter,” the socialist leader added.

    Morales suggested possible “dirty play” by Peru last month after the publication of initial plans skirted Bolivian territory.

    Humala’s comments to members of the foreign press last week confirmed the re-routing, marking another hit to diplomatic relations after Peru vowed to remain neutral in a bitter dispute between Chile and Bolivia over its right to the sea...............http://www.aa.com.tr/en/news/425614--bolivia-calls-for-talks-as-peru-re-routes-railroad

    "The United States’ position on Abkhazia and South Ossetia remains clear: these regions are integral parts of Georgia, and we continue to support Georgia’s independence, its sovereignty, and its territorial integrity.

    The United States will not recognize the legitimacy of any so-called “treaty” between Georgia’s Abkhazia region and the Russian Federation.

    We once again urge Russia to fulfill all of its obligations under the 2008 ceasefire agreement, to withdraw its forces to pre-conflict positions, to reverse its recognition of the Georgian regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia as independent states, and to provide free access for humanitarian assistance to these regions.

  61. Remarks by the President After Announcement of the Decision by the Grand Jury in Ferguson, Missouri (The White House) ...

    THE PRESIDENT: As you know, a few moments ago, the grand jury deliberating the death of Michael Brown issued its decision. It’s an outcome that, either way, was going to be subject of intense disagreement not only in Ferguson, but across America. So I want to just say a few words suggesting how we might move forward.

    First and foremost, we are a nation built on the rule of law. And so we need to accept that this decision was the grand jury’s to make. There are Americans who agree with it, and there are Americans who are deeply disappointed, even angry. It’s an understandable reaction. But I join Michael’s parents in asking anyone who protests this decision to do so peacefully. Let me repeat Michael’s father’s words: “Hurting others or destroying property is not the answer. No matter what the grand jury decides, I do not want my son’s death to be in vain. I want it to lead to incredible change, positive change, change that makes the St. Louis region better for everyone.” Michael Brown’s parents have lost more than anyone. We should be honoring their wishes...........http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2014/11/24/remarks-president-after-announcement-decision-grand-jury-ferguson-missou

  62. Summit of Failure: How the EU Lost Russia over Ukraine ...

    One year ago, negotations over a Ukraine association agreement with the European Union collapsed. The result has been a standoff with Russia and war in the Donbass. It was an historical failure, and one that German Chancellor Angela Merkel contributed to.

    Only six meters separated German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych as they sat across from each other in the festively adorned knight's hall of the former Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania. In truth, though, they were worlds apart.

    Yanukovych had just spoken. In meandering sentences, he tried to explain why the European Union's Eastern Partnership Summit in Vilnius was more useful than it might have appeared at that moment, why it made sense to continue negotiating and how he would remain engaged in efforts towards a common future, just as he had previously been. "We need several billion euros in aid very quickly," Yanukovych said.

    Then the chancellor wanted to have her say. Merkel peered into the circle of the 28 leaders of EU member states who had gathered in Vilnius that evening. What followed was a sentence dripping with disapproval and cool sarcasm aimed directly at the Ukrainian president. "I feel like I'm at a wedding where the groom has suddenly issued new, last minute stipulations."................http://www.spiegel.de/international/europe/war-in-ukraine-a-result-of-misunderstandings-between-europe-and-russia-a-1004706.html

  83. Powerful Photos Show The Nationwide Response To Michael Brown Won't End Any Time Soon...

    On the night after an announcement of a St. Louis County grand jury decision to not indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for the killing of Michael Brown, protesters around the U.S. continued to assemble and raise their voices as they demanded justice for Brown's death on Tuesday evening.

    In New York City, groups swarmed major streets and bridges, including the Lincoln Tunnel, the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Drive, Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge. A march paused on Wall Street to observe a moment of silence, then sang "We Shall Overcome." After a crowd refused orders to disperse from Times Square, police moved in and made several arrests, the New York Times reported.

    Marches in Washington D.C. prompted warnings of street closures from police and groups of protesters shouted "Shut it down!" in front of government buildings. Videos posted to social media showed what appeared to be an American flag set ablaze. HuffPost's Diane Jeanty saw protesters enter an area Wal-Mart, chanting, "We are better than this."

    In Baltimore, protesters blocked streets and staged a "die-in'' by laying down in front of police headquarters.

    Natural gas offshore in Cyprus, which has been partitioned since 1974, was first discovered in 2011. Greek Cypriots, who represent Cyprus’s internationally recognised government, have since licensed exploration sites to Italy’s ENI, France’s Total and U.S. Noble Energy in an offshore area south of the eastern Mediterranean island.

    A Turkish company sent a research vessel into the same area last month, prompting Greek Cypriots to suspend peace talks with Turkish Cypriots, saying the move was provocative and designed to undermine their own exploration efforts.

    But in an interview in London, Ergun Olgun, the Turkish Cypriot negotiator, said such exploration would continue and even accelerate if Greek Cypriots pressed ahead with their plans to allow multinationals to exploit the area.

    And that, he said, would prevent a peace deal..............- See more at: http://www.parikiaki.com/2014/11/turkish-cypriots-to-greek-cypriots-cut-gas-deal-or-forfeit-peace-deal/#sthash.XhphqEtV.dpuf

  92. Powerful earthquake hits off northern Indonesia ...

    A powerful earthquake struck off the coast of northern Indonesia late Wednesday, but officials said a tsunami was unlikely.

    There were no immediate reports of injuries or serious damage.

    The US Geological Survey said the magnitude-7.0 quake hit about 150 kilometers (93 miles) northwest of Kota Ternate and was centered 65 kilometers (40 miles) below the seabed. The US National Tsunami Warning Center said, based on historical records, the quake was not sufficient to trigger a tsunami.

    Indonesia is prone to earthquakes due to its location on the Pacific "Ring of Fire," an arc of volcanoes and fault lines in the Pacific Basin. In 2004, a massive earthquake off Sumatra triggered a tsunami that killed 230,000 people in a dozen countries.

    "The massive outbreak of popular furor and law enforcement agencies' disproportionate reaction to it confirm again that this is not an isolated incident but a systemic defect of U.S. democracy," ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said.

    He added that blacks remain deprived in the United States and are regularly subjected to violence and persecution by law enforcement agencies.

The SMM reported that a rocket-propelled grenade and multiple rounds of 23mm anti-aircraft ammunition were fired from a location to the southeast toward the OSCE team.

We call on all parties to refrain from any actions that endanger the safety of the OSCE mission in Ukraine. The United States thanks the members of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission for their bravery and service.

    The deal, which was unveiled on Thursday but will not be implemented until after a UK-wide parliamentary election next year, amounts to the biggest transfer of powers to Scotland from the United Kingdom since 1999, when a Scots parliament was set up.

  109. Brent price falls below $75 per barrel ahead of oil cartel’s decision ...

    The price of Brent crude oil has fallen below $75 per barrel for the first time since September 2010, the ICE data suggested on Thursday.

    Market players are waiting for a decision by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) on output quotas.

    The Brent price has fallen by more than 30% since June this year.

    1. Saudis block OPEC output cut, oil price sinks further ...

      Saudi Arabia set the stage for more blood-letting on oil markets after blocking on Thursday calls from poorer members of the OPEC oil exporter group for output cuts to arrest a slide in crude prices.

      Benchmark Brent oil fell more than $4 to $73.50 a barrel on fears that the global oversupply will build up in coming months as Saudi Arabia kept silent about what would prompt it to consider production cuts.

      With an OPEC statement making no mention of any extraordinary meeting or a need for members to stop overproducing, Thursday's decision represents a major shift in the group's policies away from its usual drive to defend prices.

      The outcome effectively means a battle for market share between OPEC and non-OPEC countries as a boom in U.S. shale oil production and weaker economic growth in China and Europe have already sent crude prices down about a third since June.

      "It was a great decision," Saudi Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi said as he emerged smiling after around five hours of talks.

      Asked whether OPEC had decided not to cut production and to roll over existing output policies, he replied: "That is right".

    2. Oil prices plunge after Opec meeting ...

      The price of oil slumped after the Opec oil producers' cartel decided not to cut output at its meeting in Vienna.

      Opec's secretary general Abdallah Salem el-Badri said they would not try to shore up prices by reducing production.

      "There's a price decline. That does not mean that we should really rush and do something," he said.

      Following the announcement Brent crude fell below $72 a barrel, hitting lows previously seen in August 2010.

      The 12 Opec members decided to maintain production at 30 million barrels per day as first agreed in December 2011.

      "We don't want to panic. I mean it," said Mr el-Badri. "We want to see the market, how the market behaves, because the decline of the price does not reflect a fundamental change.".............http://www.bbc.com/news/business-30223721

    4. Venezuela’s president claims to fight for restoring fair oil price ...

      Venezuela will keep fighting for restoring a fair oil price, President Nicolas Maduro said at the country’s Air Force military parade on Thursday.

      “We have failed to do it so far,” Maduro said. “But we will get our own way and will keep on fighting for the oil price to go up to a fair level of $100 per barrel.”

      In recent days Maduro has reiterated that the prices on the world market would reach the amount of $100 as only it could ensure stability in the oil sector and guarantee a flow of investments.

      In the past week, Venezuelan oil average price plunged below $70 per barrel, first for the past four years.

      Currently, Venezuela extracts three million barrels of crude oil per day, according to official data, with 2.5 million exported (mainly to the United States and China) ranking the country fifth among the world’s oil exporters. Besides, the South American country has the highest proven oil reserves, estimated at nearly 300 billion barrels. Most of oil reserves in the country’s Orinoko Belt is heavy and ultraheavy.

The programme will support Ukraine's Decentralisation and Regional Policy reforms with 55 million euros. The EU funds will support the implementation of the State Regional Development Strategy 2020, which was approved by the Government of Ukraine on 6th August this year.

With this agreement, the EU commits to support Ukraine's Decentralisation and Regional Policy reforms. The EU funds will support all three objectives of the Ukrainian State Regional Development Strategy 2020, namely competitiveness of regions; territorial socio-economic cohesion and effective State Governance of Regional Development."

The funds will be paid in four tranches to the Ukrainian State Budget between 2015-2018.

  116. Britain’s continued membership of the European Union is contingent upon it being allowed to stop migrants from the bloc tapping into its relatively generous welfare system, Prime Minister David Cameron will warn on Friday...

    In a speech designed to breathe new life into his campaign to be re-elected in May next year, Cameron will say he wants EU migrants in work to have to wait four years before they can access welfare benefits and for unemployed EU migrants not to be eligible for any help from the British state at all.

    With polls showing immigration is voters’ top concern, Cameron is under pressure to take a tougher line on the issue. Many of his Conservative lawmakers fear the rise in popularity of the anti-EU UK Independence Party, which this month won its second seat in parliament, threatens their re-election chances.

    The speech is likely to upset EU partners such as Poland which has suggested such measures would be discriminatory. But Cameron will not call the EU’s freedom of movement rules into question as some EU leaders had feared and will not advocate migrant quotas or an “emergency brake” on inflows.

    A Kurdish official and activists say extremists from the Islamic State group have launched an attack on the Syrian border town of Kobane from Turkey — a first in the ongoing siege.

    Nawaf Khalil, a spokesman for Syria's powerful Kurdish Democratic Union Party, says Islamic State group militants in Turkey attacked the border crossing point that links the country to Kobani.

    The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Khalil said the offensive began with an armored vehicle suicide attack on the border crossing.

    There was no immediate comment from Ankara.

    The Islamic State group began its Kobane offensive in mid-September. The town later became the focus of airstrikes by the U.S.-led coalition against the militants.

    The Observatory said the latest fighting has killed eight Kurdish fighters and 17 jihadis.

    The ministry said the missile's test payload reached its destination on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Russian Far East. The Bulava rocket is said to have a range of 8,000 kilometers and can carry up to 10 nuclear warheads.

    The Bulava ("mace") missile has been in development since 2009. Many earlier tests ended in failure, but the missile was declared operational last month, and is considered a key part of Russia's "triad" of nuclear deterrents - weapons launched from land, sea or air.

  161. Moldova votes in 'EU v Russia' election...

    Moldova is due to vote in parliamentary elections which are widely seen as a contest between pro-EU parties and those backing closer ties with Russia.

    Recent opinion polls gave a lead to the pro-Westerners, but tough post-election bargaining is predicted.

    On the eve of the vote, one pro-Russian party was banned from the poll - a move criticised by Moscow.

    The elections have taken on a wider significance in the shadow of the bloody crisis in neighbouring Ukraine.

    The crisis began last November after Ukraine's former leadership made a last-minute U-turn, refusing to sign a landmark association and free trade deal with the EU - under huge pressure from Russia..................http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-30265985

  164. Voters in Switzerland have decisively rejected a proposal to cut net immigration to no more than 0.2% of the population, partial results suggest...

    Data from a majority of the country's 26 cantons show about 74% voting no in Sunday's referendum.

    Supporters of the measure argued that it would have reduced pressure on the country's resources. Opponents said it would have been bad for the economy.

    Around a quarter of Switzerland's eight million people are foreigners.

    The measure would have required the government to reduce immigration from about 80,000 to 16,000 people a year...........http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-30267042

    Dans la cour du seul établissement bilingue arabe-hébreu de Jérusalem, parents d'élèves israéliens et palestiniens partagent choc et colère après un incendie et des tags anti-Arabes contre leur école, rare lieu de coexistence dans la Ville sainte.

    Samedi soir, des inconnus ont rassemblé des livres et des cahiers dans une salle de classe avant d'y mettre le feu. Puis ils ont recouvert les murs de slogans racistes.

    Dimanche, aux "Mort aux Arabes" et "Stop à l'assimilation" tagués en lettres hébraïques en noir, l'école publique Max Rayne a répondu par de larges banderoles en arabe et en hébreu proclamant: "Non à la haine et au racisme, oui à la coexistence et au vivre-ensemble".....................http://www.rtl.be/info/monde/international/1146412/jerusalem-colere-apres-une-attaque-raciste-contre-une-ecole-bilingue-arabe-hebreu

    1. Vándalos de extrema derecha atacan un colegio de Jerusalén donde estudian judíos y árabes...

      Unos vándalos -presuntamente extremistas judíos- han incendiado un aula de la escuela bilingüe en hebreo y árabe Max Rayner-Hand in hand, de Jerusalén.

      La policía y los servicios de bomberos hallaron anoche frases escritas con spray en el muro de la escuela como "No hay que coexistir con el cáncer" (en referencia a los árabes), "Muerte a los árabes" y "Kahane tenía razón".

      Kahane fundó el partido Kach, prohibido por el Gobierno israelí en 1988 por racista y anti-democrático. Entre otras cosas, Kahane sugería que el Gobierno israelí animara a los árabes a abandonar el estado de Israel y les compensara por ello. Si se negaban, Kahane proponía que permanecieran en Israel sin derecho a voto o que se les echara por la fuerza.

      El colegio atacado ayer por la noche es la mayor institución de judíos y árabes del país. Ha sido co-dirigido por un judío y un árabe desde su fundación en 1998 por la organización no gubernamental Hand in Hand.............http://sp.ria.ru/international/20141130/163367828.html

  166. New Laws Passed to Combat Extremism, Separatism in Xinjiang China ...

    The standing committee of Xinjiang China’s regional parliament has passed a series of laws aimed at combatting separatism and religious extremism in the country’s Uyghur-minority inhabited western province, Reuters has reported.

    18 new laws clarify the nature of extremist religious activities, and include regulations on activities or propaganda aimed at promoting religious extremism, inciting ethnic hatred or undermining national unity, the China Daily explained.

    The regulations, set to come into force January 1, 2015, will prohibit the use of internet, mobile phones and other digital communications technology to spread religious or separatist propaganda, Reuters noted. Fines ranging from 5,000-30,000 yuan (about $815-$4,885) will be handed out to those who break the law, with the possible confiscation of equipment also stipulated in the law. The legislation prohibits logos on clothing that might be linked to religious extremism, but the China Daily has said that what this may amount to in practice remains unclear............http://sputniknews.com/asia/20141130/1015327650.html

  167. Griechenland soll ein neues Hilfspaket bekommen

    Die Griechen haben davon geträumt, schon bald den Euro-Rettungsschirm verlassen zu können. Doch die Investoren versetzte das in Panik. Nun soll Athen ein weiteres drittes Hilfspaket bekommen.

    Antonis Samaras hatte einen großen Traum. Noch vor wenigen Wochen hoffte Griechenlands Regierungschef, aus dem verhassten Hilfsprogramm der EU-Partner aussteigen zu können. Doch die Investoren zeigten, was sie davon halten: nichts. Griechenlands Zinskosten schossen die Höhe, die griechische Börse stürzte ab. Seitdem werden in Athen andere Töne angeschlagen. "Wir brauchen eine sanfte Landung", sagt der griechische Vize-Außenminister Dimitris Kourkoulas.

    Und diese "sanfte Landung" soll Athen nun bekommen. Nach Informationen der "Welt" haben sich die EU-Mitgliedsstaaten bei einem Treffen in der vergangenen Woche darauf verständigt, Griechenland ein neues, zehn Milliarden Euro schweres Hilfsprogramm in Form sogenannter "vorbeugender Finanzhilfen" zur Verfügung zu stellen.

    Damit könnte Griechenland auch im neuen Jahr auf ein Sicherheitspolster zurückgreifen, falls die Märkte dem Land nur zu extrem hohen Zinsen Geld leihen wollen. Im Gegenzug wollen die Geldgeber Athen unter Kontrolle halten..............http://www.welt.de/wirtschaft/article134877232/Griechenland-soll-ein-neues-Hilfspaket-bekommen.html

    1. Rettungsschirm ESM: Griechenland bekommt neue Milliarden-Hilfe

      Die Mitgliedstaaten der Eurozone haben sich nach SPIEGEL-Informationen auf ein drittes Hilfspaket für Griechenland geeinigt. Brüssel will Athen demnach zehn Milliarden Euro aus dem Rettungsschirm ESM zur Verfügung stellen.

      Spitzenbeamte aus den Mitgliedstaaten der Eurozone haben sich nach Informationen des SPIEGEL Ende vergangener Woche bei einem Treffen in Brüssel weitgehend auf ein drittes Hilfsprogramm für Griechenland geeinigt. Nach den Überlegungen soll die griechische Regierung im Rahmen sogenannter vorbeugender Finanzhilfen rund zehn Milliarden Euro vom europäischen Rettungsschirm ESM zur Verfügung gestellt bekommen.

      Dafür muss der ESM kein zusätzliches Geld mobilisieren. Vielmehr sollen Mittel in gleicher Höhe aus dem zweiten Rettungspaket umgewidmet werden. Sie waren für die Bankenrekapitalisierung vorgesehen, wurden aber nicht gebraucht...............http://www.spiegel.de/wirtschaft/soziales/hilfspaket-griechenland-kriegt-weitere-zehn-milliarden-euro-a-1005820.html

  168. Statement by the Spokesperson on the release of Brigadier General Alzate and two other persons detained by the FARC ...

    STATEMENT:
    "The release by the FARC of Brigadier General Alzate and of two other detainees is a welcome development and should allow for the early resumption of the negotiations between the Government of Colombia and the FARC in Havana.

    The EU has supported the Havana negotiations throughout. They are a unique opportunity to put an end to decades of armed conflict that have caused countless victims and widespread suffering, and to build a peaceful and inclusive Colombia. The partial agreements reached on the peace agenda and the steps already taken as part of the discussions on victims-related issues bear witness to the important progress already achieved in the negotiations.

    We encourage the two sides to make use of this fresh start in the negotiations to redouble their efforts and address remaining issues in a spirit of compromise, so that an overall agreement can be reached without delay. Kidnappings and other forms of unprovoked violence have no place in this process, and we call for the release of all remaining hostages held by the FARC.

    The EU is ready to help make this process a success."

  169. Iran has criticized decision of OPEC not to decrease oil production, claiming it would inevitably hit all oil producers, but abstained from protesting...

    "I don't think that this decision is beneficial to all OPEC member countries because some countries in OPEC were against this decision; however, because of the unity and solidarity of OPEC, we decided not to protest this decision," said Iranian oil minister Bijan Zanganeh, as quoted by Shana, an Iranian media source.

    Iran insists that the swift drop in oil prices was caused by the Persian Gulf exporters' deliberate policies, which are aimed at undermining Tehran's economy.

    Russian media reported that the convoy was delivering food and building materials to residents of rebel-held Donetsk.

    Armed guards watched as the trucks, sent from the Rostov region of Russia, were unloaded in a rebel-held warehouse in the Makiivka suburb of Donetsk.

    Ukrainian military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said in a televised briefing, "The lion's share of humanitarian supplies find their way to the rebels partly in the form of food, but mostly it is ammunition, equipment and other things for combat operations."...............http://www.voanews.com/content/ukraine-unauthorized-convoy-crosses-border-from-russia/2540257.html
