Chinese President Xi Jinping calls for world without nuclear weapons 19.1.2017 DNA: Popular News
Nations should strive for a world where nuclear weapons are prohibited and where existing stocks are destroyed, Chinese President Xi Jinping said in a speech at the United Nations on Wednesday.  "Nuclear weapons should be completely prohibited and destroyed over time to make the world free of nuclear weapons," the Chinese president said in Geneva. In a lengthy address at the UN's European headquarters alongside with the world body's new chief Antonio Guterres, Xi also made a robust case for a global governance system based on equality among nations. "We should reject dominance by just one or several countries", Xi said, adding that "major powers should respect each other's core interests." "Big countries should treat smaller countries as equals instead of acting as a hegemony imposing their will on others," he further said. In his disarmament call and plea for sovereign equality Xi offered China as a nation "committed to building a world of lasting peace." The remarks come at the end of a four-day ...

Iran's nuclear deal is good for US but Trump doesn't understand, says Hassan Rouhani 18.1.2017 DNA: India
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday US President-elect Donald Trump could not unilaterally cancel the nuclear deal Tehran signed with world powers including Washington and that talk of renegotiating it was "meaningless". Trump, who will take office on Friday, has called the July 2015 agreement "the worst deal ever negotiated". He has threatened to either scrap the accord or seek a better deal. Under Iran's settlement with the United States, France, Germany, Britain, Russia and China, Tehran agreed to shrink its nuclear programme to satisfy the powers that it could not be put to developing atomic bombs. In exchange, Iran received relief from sanctions, most of which were lifted in January 2016. "The president-elect has shown he is not happy about the nuclear deal, calling it the worst deal ever signed. This is only empty talk," Rouhani told a news conference on the anniversary of the removal of sanctions. "I don't think he can do much when he goes to the White House," added Rouhani, a ...

Trump's team says report that he will meet Putin at summit is 'completely false' 16.1.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
US President-elect Donald Trump plans to hold a summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin on his first foreign trip shortly after taking office, the Sunday Times reported, though a Trump spokeswoman denied the report as "completely false." Trump would seek to "reset" relations with the Kremlin, with Iceland the likely venue, emulating Ronald Reagan's Reykjavik meeting with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in 1986 during the Cold War, the British newspaper reported, citing unnamed British officials it said had been informed of the plan. Trump, who will be inaugurated on Friday, would begin work on a deal limiting nuclear weapons as part of his bid to reset relations between the two powers, it said. Citing unnamed sources, the Sunday Times said Moscow was set to agree to a Trump-Putin summit. Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks denied the report, telling AFP it was "completely false". Iceland said it was not aware of such plans but was willing to host a summit to help improve relations between Washington and ...

'Multi-dimensional' CISF to recruit 35,000 jawans: Rajnath Singh 8.1.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
As many as 35,000 more personnel will be recruited to the CISF which is a "multi-dimensional" force, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Sunday. "A total 35,000 more personnel will be added in the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), which would take the strength to 1.8 lakh," he said in Ranchi. Inaugurating the Eastern Sector Headquarters of CISF and Residential Complex here, he said the "CISF has a multi-dimensional role." Earlier, CISF used to guard industrial units, but now its responsibility has grown-- working in naxal-hit areas, being deployed at ports, airports, power installations, nuclear centres -- and they are discharging their duty commendably, Singh said. Stating that CISF was "special" among the paramilitary forces, he said whenever personnel are needed for UN peace keeping forces, the attention goes to CISF. Quoting experts, he said India is the fastest growing country and the US $2-trillion economy places the country among the top 10 economies in the world. India, he added, ...

Chinese state media accuses India of breaking UN limits with Agni long-range missiles 5.1.2017 DNA: Top News
India has "broken" UN limits on nuclear arms and long-range missiles and Pakistan should also be accorded the same "privilege", state-run Chinese media said today as it criticised New Delhi for carrying out Agni-4 and 5 missile tests whose range covers the Chinese mainland. "India has broken the UN's limits on its development of nuclear weapons and long-range ballistic missile," the ruling Communist Party-run tabloid Global Times said in its editorial. "The US and some Western countries have also bent the rules on its nuclear plans. New Delhi is no longer satisfied with its nuclear capability and is seeking intercontinental ballistic missiles that can target anywhere in the world and then it can land on an equal footing with the UN Security Council's five permanent members," it said. "India is 'promising' in vying for permanent membership on the UN Security Council as it is the sole candidate who has both nuclear capability and economic potential," it said. "China should realise that Beijing wouldn't ...
