John Kerry says US, China discussing further sanctions on North Korea 18.5.2015 DNA: Popular News
The United States is discussing with China imposing further sanctions against North Korea as the reclusive country is "not even close" to taking steps to rein in its nuclear weapons programme, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday. Speaking in the South Korean capital, Kerry said Washington had offered the North the chance of an improved relationship in return for signs of a genuine willingness to end its nuclear programme. "To date, to this moment, particularly with recent provocations, it is clear the DPRK is not even close to meeting that standard," Kerry told a joint news conference with South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se. "Instead it continues to pursue nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles." DPRK stands for Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the North's official name. The country is already under heavy UN, EU and U.S. sanctions for its missile and nuclear tests. "I think never has the international community been as united as we are now, that, number one North Korea needs ...

Nuclear Power in the Year of Modi 18.5.2015 DNA: Urban Tales
It has been a year now since Narendra Modi took office as prime minister of India and by all accounts, it has been a good year. In many ways, Modi's victory is reminiscent of Barack Obama's rise to the presidency of the United States in 2008 - after eight years of what many saw as a misguided war in the Middle East and Central Asia, a significant number of Americans wanted change. Similarly, after ten years of anaemic Congress rule, Modi represented the hopes - perhaps unrealistically high - of millions of Indians. For a candidate who had spoken at length about solar power during the election campaign, it was surprising to see Modi talk up nuclear energy once in office. In July 2014, Modi visited the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre and was full of praise for India's nuclear community. Declaring that nuclear power would be an essential part of India's energy security, he assured the Department of Atomic Energy of his full support in the implementation of their expansion plans. To be sure, it will take a ...

Study Fukushima, Chernobyl before deciding on Jaitapur: Uddhav Thackeray to Maharashtra government 16.5.2015 DNA: Urban Tales
 Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray, whose party is fiercely opposed to Jaitapur nuclear power project, on Saturday suggested Maharashtra Government to send its ministers abroad to study ill-effects of atomic disasters in places like Fukushima and Chernobyl. Before going ahead with the Jaitapur project, he said the BJP-led Government in Maharashtra, where Sena is sharing power, should undertake a study tour of places such as Fukushima and Chernobyl to understand the devastating consequences of nuclear accidents. Reiterating his party's opposition to the 9,900 MW plant in the coastal Konkan region of Maharashtra, Uddhav said "Jaitapur is not a political issue for Shiv Sena." "Countries like Japan and Germany are closing nuclear projects in a phased manner because of the threats they pose," he said. The Sena chief was speaking at a function organised to honour senior journalist Dnyanesh Maharao with the R G Jadhav Award at the Mumbai Marathi Patrakar Sangh. He asked his party MLA from Konkan Deepak ...
