Friendship will prevail over India-China differences: Chinese Foreign Ministry 13.9.2016 DNA: India
 It is natural for China and India not to see eye-to-eye on some issues, but friendship will prevail over "problems", China today said as it vowed to work with New Delhi to expand mutually beneficial cooperation and ensure steady growth of bilateral ties. "China-India strategic partnership of cooperation has made all-round progress these years. The two countries are marching toward the goal of building a closer partnership of development," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said. Hua was reacting to Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar's remarks that sanctioning of well-known terrorist leaders and organisations besides developmental issues like access to cooperation and investments in the field of civil nuclear energy should not emerge as points of difference with a "partner" like China. Jaishankar was referring to China blocking India's bid to get a UN ban on Pakistan-based terrorist and JeM chief Masood Azhar as well as Beijing scuttling India's entry in the Nuclear Suppliers Group.

'Nuclear fuel inside Earth may be calculated by 2025' 12.9.2016 DNA: Top News
The amount of nuclear fuel and radioactive power remaining inside the Earth may be calculated by 2025, which can help estimate how long this fuel will last, scientists say. Earth requires fuel to drive plate tectonics, volcanoes and its magnetic field. Like a hybrid car, Earth taps two sources of energy to run its engine: primordial energy from assembling the planet and nuclear energy from the heat produced during natural radioactive decay. Scientists have developed numerous models to predict how much fuel remains inside Earth to drive its engines - and estimates vary widely - but the true amount remains unknown. A team from the University of Maryland in the US, Charles University in Prague and the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences, now claims it will be able to determine by 2025 how much nuclear fuel and radioactive power remain in the Earth's tank. To calculate the amount of fuel inside Earth by 2025, the researchers will rely on detecting some of the tiniest subatomic particles known to science - ...

India-China ties 'complicated' but not a 'zero sum game': Foreign Secretary Jaishankar 9.9.2016 DNA: Popular News
The relationship between India and China is not a "zero sum game" and the two nations should approach each other with strategic maturity, Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar said on Friday.  Describing the bilateral ties as "complicated", he said but one should not ignore the collaborative and convergent side of the relationship as well. Asserting that India expected China to be appreciative of its interests, especially when they are not in conflict with those of Beijing, he said, "Combating terrorism is one such area and sanctioning of well-known terrorist leaders and organisations should not emerge as an issue of difference. "Nor should reservations on developmental issues, such as India's predictable access to international cooperation and investments in the field of civil nuclear energy." Jaishankar was referring to China blocking India's bid to get a UN ban on Pakistan-based terrorist and JeM chief Masood Azhar as well as Beijing scuttling India's entry in the Nuclear Suppliers Group. Sino-Indian ties ...

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan dropped 0.4% from Thursday's 13-month high, mirroring the slide in the MSCI's all-country world index .

Overnight on Wall Street, the S&P 500 lost 0.22%, weighed by a 2.6% fall in Apple on disappointment over its latest iPhone, though gains in energy shares offset losses in most other sectors. In Europe, German shares took the brunt of the ECB let-down but shares in Southern Europe gained.
