By Jonathan WalshRabat – A man was stabbed to death in India after arguing with a friend over whether Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo or Barcelona’s Lionel Messi was a better footballer.The incident took place in Mumbai on Sunday morning following birthday party of the victim on the previous night. Inspector Kiran Kabadi told AFP sources that Michael Chukwuma, 21, had subsequently been charged over the killing of Obina Durumchukwu, 34.“The two were discussing football players. One is a fan of Messi and the other was for Ronaldo,” the police inspector said.He continued, “During the conversation, a quarrel broke out. The deceased threw a glass into the face of the murder. The glass broke and caused him small injuries.“After that, the accused took the broken glass and assaulted the victim, who died of heavy bleeding.”The debate between who is more talented between Messi and Ronaldo is a hot topic between football fans. The two have dominated the annual Ballon d’Or Accolade for best footballer since 2008. Portuguese national captain Ronaldo has received the award three times, while Argentinian Messi has won it five times.
Lebanese authorities are giving Iraqis who either entered the country illegally or overstayed their visas a total of three months – as of the start of this week – to regularize their status, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reported yesterday.The agency said the decision will result in the release from detention of hundreds of Iraqis, many of whom had already served their sentences but were still being held.Stephane Jaquemet, UNHCR’s representative in Lebanon, described the Lebanese Government’s decision as courageous.“The Lebanese decision is of particular significance given that it has been taken at a time when the country has been facing political turmoil and volatile security,” he said.Speaking in Amman, Jordan, at the end of a week-long visit to Jordan, Syria and Iraq, High Commissioner António Guterres said the move would create “protection space” in Lebanon for Iraqis fleeing threats or the widespread sectarian violence in their homeland.He also said the agency would assist those released from detention and their families, including by providing legal aid to help Iraqis regularize their status, a process that includes obtaining residence and work permits.“UNHCR’s priority will be to assist detainees upon release as, after several months of detention, many of them will be destitute,” Mr. Guterres said. “We will also help as many Iraqis as possible obtain work permits so that they can become? self-sufficient and lead a dignified life.”More than three-quarters of the estimated 50,000 Iraqis living in Lebanon are believed to have entered the country illegally, according to a survey conducted late last year. UNHCR has so far formally registered 9,939 Iraqis and started providing medical, educational and material assistance to them, while another 1,462 have been resettled from Lebanon to third countries. 21 February 2008The United Nations refugee agency has praised Lebanon for agreeing to recognize thousands of Iraqi refugees who had previously been considered to be illegal immigrants requiring detention.

President Donald Trump holds up a signed memorandum calling for a trade investigation of China, Monday, Aug. 14, 2017, in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House in Washington. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon) by Jonathan Lemire And Josh Boak, The Associated Press Posted Aug 14, 2017 2:13 am MDT Last Updated Aug 14, 2017 at 2:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email BEDMINSTER, N.J. – Even as he seeks Beijing’s help on North Korea, President Donald Trump asked his trade office on Monday to consider investigating China for the alleged theft of American technology and intellectual property.Trump, in the midst of a 17-day vacation, left his New Jersey golf club to return to the White House to sign an executive action on the probe. He suggested that more steps would be taken against China on trade issues.“This is just the beginning — I want to tell you that,” Trump said. “This is just the beginning.”There is no deadline for deciding if any investigation is necessary. Such an investigation easily could last a year.In a phone call Friday, Trump praised Chinese President Xi Jinping for backing the recent U.N. vote to impose tougher sanctions on North Korea, and the leaders reaffirmed their commitment to a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula. But Trump also told Xi about the move toward a possible inquiry into China’s trade practices, according to two U.S. officials familiar with that conversation. They were not authorized to publicly discuss the private call and spoke on condition of anonymity.China announced Monday it will cut off imports of North Korean coal, iron and lead ore and other goods in three weeks under U.N. sanctions imposed against Pyongyang.In an editorial Monday, the China Daily, a mouthpiece of the ruling Communist Party, linked Trump’s trade announcement against China to his disappointment over China’s purported failure to rein in North Korea. The newspaper said a trade probe, which could lead to punitive tariffs on Chinese exports, would “poison” U.S.-China relations.Trump wants government officials to look at Chinese practices that force American companies to share their intellectual property in order to gain access to the world’s second-largest economy. Many U.S. businesses must create joint ventures with Chinese companies and turn over valuable technology assets, a practice that Washington says stifles U.S. economic growth.Trump’s action amounts to a request that his trade representative determine whether an investigation is needed under the Trade Act of 1974. If an investigation begins, the U.S. government could seek remedies either through or outside of the World Trade Organization.While Beijing has promised to open more industries to foreign companies, it also has issued new rules on electric car manufacturing, data security, internet censorship and other fields.An administration official contended that the possible investigation was unrelated to the showdown with North Korea. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the order before Trump’s formal announcement.As the crisis involving North Korea has unfolded, Trump has alternated praising China for its help and chiding it for not ratcheting up pressure on its Asian neighbour.“I think China can do a lot more,” Trump told reporters Thursday. “And I think China will do a lot more.”China, the isolated North’s main trading partner, has been reluctant to push leader Kim Jong Un’s regime too hard for fear it might collapse. But Beijing is increasingly frustrated with Pyongyang and supported a U.N. Security Council ban on Aug. 5 on coal and other key goods.The Chinese customs agency said Monday that it will stop processing imports of North Korean coal, iron and lead ores and fish at midnight on Sept. 5.“After that, entry of these goods will be prohibited,” said an agency statement.Trump has escalated his harsh criticism of North Korea for days, tweeting Friday that the U.S. had military options “locked and loaded.” Xi, in his phone conversation with Trump, urged calm, the officials said.Trump, in the past, has tied trade policy to national security, leading to speculation that raising the possibility of a probe — without committing to one — could be a negotiating tactic to get China to step up its assistance with North Korea.The forced sharing of intellectual property with Chinese firms has been a long-standing concern of the U.S. business community, with reports suggesting that losses stemming from it could total hundreds of billions of dollars annually that cost the U.S. economy millions of jobs.Trump has requested similar inquiries on trade, but the reports haven’t been delivered on deadline. Trump made addressing the U.S. trade deficit with China a centerpiece of his campaign last year and has suggested raising tariffs on goods from China.___Associated Press writers Gillian Wong in Beijing and Matthew Pennington in Washington contributed to this report.___Follow Boak on Twitter at http://twitter.com/@JoshBoak and Lemire at http://twitter.com/@JonLemire Trump seeks probe by his trade office of China’s practices
Map of north campus athletics district | Credit: Courtesy of OSU Board of TrusteesOhio State hockey could be in line for a home of its own in the near future.The OSU athletic department is considering adding a hockey arena to the north campus athletic district that would become the home of both men’s and women’s ice hockey. It would feature two sheets of ice: one for games and one for practices. There is currently no estimate for when the project will be completed. The current project spot for the new arena is just north of the soon-to-be-built Covelli Multi-Sport Arena, according to a map shared by the OSU Board of Trustees in their January meeting. It is part of an ongoing effort to build multiple athletic complexes in the place of Buckeye Village.Shaun Richard, associate athletic director and administrator for hockey at OSU, said the progress so far has been requesting a bid to architects in the hope of receiving detailed proposals, including cost estimates. “(The architects will) look at various things throughout the process in terms of what our program might look like in terms of locker room sizes, what we’d be needing in this building, the cost of a two-sheeted facility and just some obstacles that we may have to look at as we go through the process,” Richard said.The proposal is still in the early stages of planning, but the plans for the arena currently have the seating capacity set to 4,000.“That is what we have put in the RFQ (request for quotation) is 4,000, but we’re not married to that number right now, it’s more of just a starting point,” Richard said. “Looking at a smaller sheet, looking at a smaller arena is the direction we want to go to start.”Since the 1998-99 season, the OSU men’s hockey team has played in Value City Arena at the Schottenstein Center, with a seating capacity of 17,500. The women’s hockey team has been playing in the much smaller OSU Ice Rink with a seating capacity of 1,415, since its inaugural season in 1999-2000.Last season, the men’s team averaged 5,335 people per game, filling up 30.5 percent of Value City Arena. The women’s team averaged 430 fans per game, 35.8 percent of the OSU Ice Rink’s available seating.There is no immediate timetable for when the project will be completed, but Richard said the department should receive bids on the project within the next month and have a study back before the end of the year.
A caption accompanying the photographs, taken from a cutting in one of Topham’s many scrapbooks, reads: “They were in the middle of a rehearsal when an Alert sounded. ‘Jerry’, like Time, waits for no one so the rehearsal was called off while contact was made with the battery.”Another read: “Still wearing their dresses the dancers rushed to their action stations – wolves in sheep’s clothing, so to speak.”Staging pantomime shows and music hall skits proved to be a popular pastime among servicemen and were found to help maintain morale during wartime, with shows even being put on by British PoW’s held in German prisoner camps. Following the war he recalled that the Ministry of Information feared these particular images could undermine morale by giving the impression that British soldiers were not quite as manly as the public might want.There may have also been fears that Nazi propaganda chiefs would use the photographs of men in drag firing anti-aircraft guns to poke fun at the Allies.Despite that other photographs from Topham’s visit to Shornemead Fort were published at the time in papers such as The Sketch and The War Illustrated.One showed the men performing on stage in bonnets, dresses and black stockings, and another even showed the unit, still in their dresses, running up a grass embankment, in response to the air raid sirens. But during his visit the troops were scrambled to deal with the approach of Luftwaffe bombers flying across the Channel to mount raids over southern England.With no time to change back into their uniforms the men went to their battle stations still dressed head to toe in women’s clothing, followed by Topham. When the Duke of Wellington inspected his troops on the eve of the battle of Waterloo he is said to have declared: “I don’t know if they frighten the enemy, but they scare the hell out of me.”That may well have been the reaction of Britain’s wartime censor to this set of photographs showing troops dressed in drag manning coastal defences in Kent during an air raid.So alarmed were officials at the Ministry of Information that they promptly banned the images from being published.Now, nearly 80 years on, on the photographs can be seen for the first time after the originals were discovered in the archive of the veteran Fleet Street photographer John Topham.He took the photographs in 1940, during a visit to the base of the Royal Artillery Coastal Defence Battery at Shornemead Fort, near Gravesend, in Kent.Topham’s intention had been to photograph the men rehearsing in drag for one of the regular shows they staged to keep themselves entertained.

This was used in a propaganda campaign aimed at persuading the US to enter the war, alongside the slogan “Help England And It Won’t Happen Here”.He once said he was interested in photographing “the little things in life – the way it really was. It was a matter of going – or trying to go – where the trouble was.”Topham, who died aged 84 in 1992, retired in 1973 and sold his picture agency to the current owners, Topfoto, who are now engaged in the painstaking task of transferring the tens of thousands of negatives and glass plates he took during his long career onto their digital archives.

It’s less than two months now until the Xbox One launches, so you’d expect Microsoft to start ramping up its marketing for the new console soon. But before then, it seems the Xbox 360 is getting some attention. More specifically, Microsoft seems to be aiming for one last sales push before its current gen console has to compete with a next gen machine.For a limited time you can pick up a brand new Xbox 360 with $50 slashed off the usual price and/or $50 of Xbox Live credit included in the purchase. The participating retailers include Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, NFM, Target, and Walmart, but the offer varies depending on which of those you decide to purchase from.As an example, Amazon is offering the 4GB new style Xbox 360E console for $179 (usually $199.99) with $50 promotional credit. So you are basically saving $71 compared to what you’d usually pay for that combination. The 250GB version is $249 with the same free $50 credit, meaning you’re saving $101.Although these promotions are only expected to run for a limited time, I can’t see why they won’t turn into a permanent price cut. We are approaching the holidays and the launch of the Xbox One, so Microsoft needs to offer a new incentive to keep people buying the Xbox 360. What better way than a price cut and credit for purchasing download games and entertainment?If you are on the market for a new 360, say, because your pre-2009 console won’t play GTA V, now is clearly a great time to pick one up.

Prime Minister Hubert Minnis told CNN that the death toll will rise and that the storm had caused “generational devastation”. The United Nations said 70,000 people in the Bahamas were in “immediate need” of aid.Dorian was hitting the US states of North and South Carolina throughout the night with strong winds and driving rain, bringing dangerous storm surge.Authorities in the state of Florida – which was largely spared by the storm – blamed six more deaths on the hurricane, US media reported, though they occurred as the victims were preparing for the storm’s arrival or were evacuation-relatedUS weather forecasters warned that some areas of the Carolina coast could see dangerous storm surge of up to 2.1 metres. “We know we’re in for a long night and we’ll be eager to see the sunshine in the morning,” North Carolina’s Governor Roy Cooper told CNN yesterday. Charleston, South Carolina was hit by the storm on Thursday. Source: USA TODAY Network/SIPA USA/PA ImageThe slow-moving storm also spawned several tornadoes but there were no immediate reports of casualties.Many residents of coastal Carolina heeded evacuation orders while others battened down their homes with plywood and prepared to ride out the storm. The storm has now weakened to a category 1 storm, US meteorologists said.Dorian was packing maximum sustained winds of nearly 150 kilometres per hour, according to the latest update from the Miami-based National Hurricane Center.“Slow weakening is expected during the next few days. However, Dorian should remain a powerful hurricane as the center moves near or along the coast of North Carolina,” it said. BahamasAmid fears of lawlessness in the storm zone, Minnis warned that any looters will be prosecuted “to the fullest extent of the law” and additional police and defence force officers deployed.US and British helicopters were conducting medical evacuations, aerial assessments to help coordinate relief efforts, and reconnaissance flights to assess the damage.The US Coast Guard said it had rescued 201 people in the Bahamas as of Thursday using multiple helicopters and Coast Guard cutters.The UN’s World Food Program said it had eight tonnes of ready-to-eat meals ready to arrive in the Bahamas.- © AFP 2019 15,084 Views Image: Gonzalo Gaudenzi/AP/Press Association Images The scene in Abaco, Bahamas, which was devastated by Hurricane Dorian.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Labor’s result in the Victorian election sees a new chapter written in the story of Greek Australian political representation.Of the 47 seats predicted to fall to Labor, four at least are filled by Greek Australians, one of whom – Jenny Mikakos – becomes the first woman of Greek heritage ever to be appointed a minister at any level of government in Australia.With the last votes still being counted in the Legislative Council, Lee Tarlamis must wait until next week to find out if he will join Jenny Mikakos in being returned for Labor, with Philip Dalidakis – a former deputy chief of staff to ALP heavyweight Stephen Conroy – elected in the Southern Metropolitan Region.In the lower house, after defeating Liberal incumbent Elizabeth Miller by the tightest of margins, Nick Staikos – former Glen Eira City councillor and advisor to Simon Crean – also makes his debut on the parliamentary stage for the seat of Bentleigh.Staikos will be joined by former City of Monash Deputy Mayor Steve Dimopoulos. With the retirement of Anne Barker, Dimopoulos retained the seat of Oakleigh with a swing of almost three per cent.Jennifer Kanis who won the seat of Melbourne at the 2012 by-election was narrowly defeated by the Greens’ Ellen Sandell. Ms Kanis was the only sitting Labor lower house MP to lose her seat. Speaking to Neos Kosmos, Phillip Dalidakis who has been a Labor member since the age of 15, said his task now was “to serve the public in every which way I can”.Mr Dalidakis said that repairing the Napthine government’s cuts to the TAFE sector were an immediate priority, along with Labor’s promise to replace 50 of Victoria’s most dangerous level crossings, a number of which are in his electorate.“It’s about restoring services, we need to make sure we keep taking the community with us”.Labor’s success in managing generational change in its candidates has been identified as one of the factors affecting the historic election result: the first time in 60 years that a Victorian state government had been defeated after only one termSteve Dimopoulos, whose 42nd birthday coincided with Labor’s first caucus meeting since the election, said that Labor’s victory was down to a difference of narratives between the major parties.“There was no greater narrative on the Liberals’ side. We have a narrative – about good quality public health and education, public transport, along with essential services, and they didn’t.”Mr Dimopoulos vowed that he would reach out to all in his electorate, not just the Labor faithful. “I want to get to know those who didn’t vote for me and message to those people is ‘I’ll work everyday to gain your trust’, that’s my approach. “From day one I’ll be visiting everything that represents our community; every school, every sporting club, every community group”.The former City of Monash councillor added: “Judge me on my record over the next four years. Judge me on the things I stood for.”Jenny Mikakos, appointed Minister for Families and Children, and Minister for Youth Affairs in the Andrews cabinet, said she felt “humbled by Victorians’ support for Labor and for me personally”. Ms Mikakos added that Daniel Andrews had been “a great leader, keeping us all united and focused, and he will be a great Premier. I will be working hard in an Andrews Labor Government to make our state better”.

Des bébés allaités par une donneuse atteinte de l’hépatite BDébut mars, les parents de 118 nourrissons ont été informés que leur enfant avait consommé du lait contaminé par l’hépatite B, suite à une erreur d’analyse. Aujourd’hui, les bébés sont hors de danger selon les médecins.C’est au lactarium de Marmande dans le Lot-et-Garonne que l’incident s’est produit. Le 3 mars dernier, les médecins alertaient l’Agence française de sécurité sanitaire des produits de santé (Afssaps) et la direction générale de la santé que du lait contaminé à l’hépatite B avait servi à allaiter 118 nourrissons. Immédiatement avertis, les parents ont été invités à faire examiner leurs enfants et à les faire vacciner contre la maladie. À lire aussiUne femme donne naissance à un bébé cyclope en EgypteSelon le directeur du lactarium Patrice Piquet, l’incident serait survenu suite à une erreur d’interprétation de la sérologie de la donneuse. Ignorant sa maladie, cette mère avait commencé à donner son lait mi-octobre, lait qui a par la suite été distribué mi-décembre dans différentes régions.Aujourd’hui, Patrice Piquet a annoncé que les bébés étaient hors de danger, en raison d’une faible charge virale. “Le risque de contamination est proche de zéro, il faut rassurer les gens. Les analyses montrent que la charge virale de la maladie est indétectable, d’ailleurs les tests effectués sur les enfants et le mari de la donneuse sont négatifs”, a t-il indiqué à l’AFP. Néanmoins, le directeur du plus grand lactarium de France a tenu à souligner qu’une solution était actuellement cherchée pour “qu’une nouvelle erreur d’interprétation de la sérologie ne se reproduise pas”.Le 1 avril 2011 à 17:07 • Emmanuel Perrin

Shareholders of companies that declare handsome dividends seem to care less for their share of profits. Take for instance, Infosys, the second-largest Indian IT services exporter, which has been consistent in paying huge dividends over the past few years. But the money somehow does not reach some shareholders, resulting in the same being deposited in an investor protection account.Read: Infosys share buyback likely; a look at its bonus history, capital structureIn three financial years (2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16), Infosys transferred about Rs 65 lakh to the Investor Education and Education Fund (IEPF). The transfer in 2015-16 was a phenomenal Rs 40.98 lakh, almost three to four times in comparison to previous years, according to the company’s FY2016 annual report.Not only that, the company transferred Rs 17.76 lakh in July 2016 followed by Rs 28.87 lakh in November. The amounts pertain to dividend declared in FY2010 (interim and final). Similarly, unclaimed dividend of Rs 28.87 lakh and Rs 21.39 lakh is due for transfer to the IEPF in November 2017 and July 2018, respectively.The company has a track record of huge dividend payments — Rs 25 per share in FY2010; Rs 60 in FY2011; Rs 47 in FY2012; Rs 42 in FY2013; Rs 63 in FY2014 and Rs 59.50 in FY2015 (the amounts include both interim and final dividend).Section 124 of the Companies Act, 2013 mandates that dividend lying unclaimed for seven years should be transferred to the IEPF. TCS India’s largest IT services exporter Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) disclosed in its FY2016 annual report that unclaimed dividends of Rs 21.11 crore were lying in its accounts as of March 31, 2016, up from Rs 19.77 crore as of March 31, 2015. WiproIn 2015-16, the Bengaluru-based, Azim Premji-led company transferred Rs 50.94 lakh in unclaimed dividend to the IEPF pertaining to the financial year 2007-08.Infosys share closed at Rs 1,009 apiece on Thursday on the BSE, Wipro ended at 485 and TCS at Rs 2,481.

Like other member states, Cyprus has signed up to Pesco which critics say means nations are effectively sub-contracting their militaries out to the EU, thus ceding their sovereigntyBy Elias HazouA year ago, when the European Union was rolling out its Permanent Structured Cooperation (Pesco), some commentators cautioned that we were witnessing the birth pangs of an EU military structure, an essential ingredient in the creation of a European super-state.At the time such warnings were waved off as hyperbole or ‘conspiracy theory’. Today, EU leaders – including President Nicos Anastasiades – are freely speaking of an ‘EU army’. And meanwhile Cyprus’ own involvement in Pesco is picking up steam.Before going any further, it cannot be emphasised enough that the phrase ‘EU army’ is a misnomer. The bloc is not out to establish its own armed forces out of scratch. Rather, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the goal is to integrate the existing militaries of EU member states. Thus, the correct term would be EU military unification.David Ellis, a journalist who has been tracking the issue for years, says it’s vital to make that distinction.In an email, Ellis, director of Strategic Defence Initiatives, told the Sunday Mail:“I stress that the EU is seeking to unify national militaries under single-point command and control of all defence services in the EU zone. Why create a military or defence industry of its own when the EU can commandeer the existing ones for free?“The EU will then issue tax bills to pay for what is now its own military structures. Therefore, this is in no way an ‘EU army’ on initial ownership grounds. Besides, we see that all armed services are within the scope of EU military unification.”He adds: “In the British armed services, this has already been seen to include the Royal Navy, the Royal Marines, the Paras, the special forces, the Army and the Royal Air Force. Only when we call this move by its correct name will policymakers appreciate what has been done under their noses.”To illustrate, Ellis cites the example of Northwood Headquarters in Hertfordshire, England.Northwood HQ is the UK’s principal military headquarters site, home to five operational HQs.According to the British government’s website, “the facility is located in Bldg 410, in the same building as Pjhq, and part of it has already been activated to provide an OHQ for command of the EU-led Counter-Piracy operation (Op Atalanta).“The whole facility provides essential infrastructure for a multinational staff based around a PJHQ Nucleus and is provided with a direct secure communications link into Brussels.The fact Northwood HQ has a direct comms link to Brussels is very telling, Ellis says.He, as well as others, have long been warning of the danger of nations effectively sub-contracting their militaries out to the EU, thus ceding their sovereignty. After all, they argue, how can a state be truly sovereign without full control over its military?The counter-argument is that such fears are exaggerated, and that the EU’s scope will be restricted to police actions and humanitarian missions.That may be true for now. But with the ongoing integration of member-states’ militaries, and the structures and bureaucracies built to facilitate joint operations, it is not a stretch to anticipate individual nations slowly but surely losing flexibility in their respective foreign policies.Are concerns over loss of sovereignty misguided? During a speech before the plenary session of the European parliament, on December 11 in Strasbourg, the EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini laid it all out.She stated: “I think we agree no single European country can respond effectively to any of the challenges of our times, and I think we agree that we, the European Union, have a responsibility to embrace our role as a global power, working together for peace, security and human development worldwide and, in some cases, even filling a gap.“None of our member states is big enough in the world of today to pursue their own national interests all alone.”Mogherini went on to say: “When we join forces, as Europeans, and take part in global negotiations we are not giving up on our sovereignty. On the contrary, we are exerting our sovereignty more fully, more powerfully, on the global stage.“Yes, we are investing in Europe’s hard power – finally – and we would all prefer that we lived in a world where this was not necessary.”Mogherini then sought to square the circle, resorting to verbal gymnastics as a sop to those who might still harbour concerns over loss of sovereignty. She coined a new phrase: cooperative autonomy.“There is no contradiction between investing in Europe’s strategic autonomy and cooperating even more closely with our partners,” she said.“On the contrary, we Europeans are taking more responsibility for our own security and for the world around us, and we are doing this together. Together with the United Nations, together with Nato, together with the African Union, together with all our partners around the world. Rather than discussing whether we have to choose between strategic autonomy or cooperation, I would say we have chosen the path of cooperative autonomy.”And providing a glimpse of what lies ahead, Mogherini stated:“Our two command centres, civilian and military, will work now more closely together. On the military side, our command centre should be ready by 2020 to also run small-scale executive operations, so going beyond what it is doing now, which is commanding, training and advisory missions.”Since a year ago, a great deal has happened. An initial list of 17 projects to be developed under Pesco was adopted by the European Council on March 6 of this year. Then, on November 19, the Council adopted a second batch of 17 additional projects.Alex Thomson, who served with Britain’s GCHQ from 2001 to 2009, told the Sunday Mail:“A year on from the agreeing of Pesco, we see EU member states openly speaking of a pressing need to open up military mobility, which some are also designating ‘military Schengen’. In practice, this means putting protocols in place to move entire battalions and naval groups from western and southern EU member states up to the maritime and land borders of Russia at a couple of days’ notice, as well as rolling out mobile airstrips in front-line member states.”Cyprus is already participating in eight Pesco projects.Thomson, who like Ellis is a frequent contributor to UK Column, added: “Nato and the EU are acting hand-in-glove in all of this planning and are increasingly two wings of a single entity. It is all there to read in publicly-available policy documents and public speeches, if people would but look.”Where does Cyprus fit in all this? On December 12, in Strasbourg, President Anastasiades said:“Although we recognise Pesco as a decisive step, our vision remains the military independence of Europe, the creation of the Euro-army, a power body to shield its borders to serve the defence interests of the union.”On November 20, speaking in Brussels, Defence Minister Savvas Angelides, stated that Cyprus is already participating in eight Pesco projects.One of these is the Joint EU Intelligence School which, according to media reports, will be based in Cyprus.The Sunday Mail tried to confirm whether the intelligence school will indeed be located on the island, but government sources were unable to respond in time for this report.In his remarks in Strasbourg, Anastasiades made a tangential link between Cyprus’ participation in Pesco and the series of tripartite alliances the island has concluded with eastern Mediterranean nations.He said: “The establishment of tripartite cooperation is particularly beneficial for the EU, mainly in the energy sector, contributing to the desired energy security and diversification of energy sources and supply corridors to the union.“It is also very important that the EU remains clearly in solidarity in the Republic of Cyprus as regards the exercise of sovereign rights for exploration and exploitation of natural resources within its EEZ,” he added.The remarks seem to shed light on how Cyprus perceives its participation in the EU’s Common Security and Defence Policy.Legal sources tell the Sunday Mail that although the Cypriot constitution does not explicitly state who has ultimate authority to sanction military action, it’s understood that such powers are vested with the executive and therefore the president will be responsible to decide.Independently of Anastasiades’ comments, Thomson connected the dots in what he says is the emerging geopolitical jigsaw puzzle in the region.“My strong impression is that this EU/Nato military blob has not yet agreed its intelligence-sharing arrangements, either strategically or tactically – that is, either in terms of winning wars or winning battles.“Given that observation, the EU’s Joint Intelligence School is not a particularly surprising departure. Its constellation as a Greek-led, Cyprus-based entity reinforces to me the indications of the past year that a French military alliance has suddenly grown in the eastern Mediterranean and neighbouring regions, with a particular aim of containing Turkey, securing hydrocarbon resources and assisting Israel.”Thomson goes on:“This alliance draws particularly upon the Eastern Orthodox nations and Egypt as France’s local partners, and in the near future might well be expected to encompass the Visegrád Four nations as well, which Israel has been assiduously wooing. France’s officer school at St Cyr is increasingly taking it upon itself to train the junior officers of Balkan and Levantine countries and is leapfrogging Sandhurst in that respect, despite Britain’s long-established alliance with several countries in the region. The upshot of this will be that French, and EU military union, doctrine will prevail in the military minds of the next generation in the Eastern Mediterranean.”It’s also worth recalling that the Cyprus cabinet rubberstamped the island’s accession to Pesco just two days after Anastasiades saw French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris in November 2017.For his part, Ellis offers:“Pesco is but one part of the EU’s defence structures, and we see these expanding daily. It would naturally follow from this that the EU would take an ever greater slice of the British military interest on strategically-located Cyprus, including the GCHQ intelligence collection bases and RAF Akrotiri.“To wage a war – which might be dressed down as a ‘fight’ – in what it calls its Eastern and Southern Neighbourhood, the EU is going to need that presence.” *The Sunday Mail would like to thank David Ellis, Alex Thomson and UK Column News for the resources provided in the writing of this reportYou May LikePlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoGundry MD Total Restore SupplementU.S. Cardiologist: It’s Like a Pressure Wash for Your InsidesGundry MD Total Restore SupplementUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboola
