  1. Australia on Tuesday raised the ­terrorism threat level against the police force to high for the first time, saying there were small but growing numbers of citizens involved with jihadist groups and intent on attacks...

    Australian Federal Police said the ­decision had been taken based on ­intelligence-gathering and discussions with partners and was in line with the ­broader threat for the country, also raised to high in September.

    The heightened alert, raised from medium to high, also comes after a "known terror suspect" was shot dead in Melbourne in September after ­stabbing two police officers, a day after the ­Islamic State group called for Muslims to kill Australians indiscriminately.

    Both policemen survived the attack.

    "While relatively small, there are ­increasing numbers of Australians who are connected with or inspired by ­overseas terrorist groups such as the ­Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, with the ­intent and capability to conduct an attack against police," the federal ­police said in a statement.

    The factors that had led to the ­elevated general terrorism threat level for ­Australia to high in September had ­persisted and the security ­environment was ­"increasingly complex and challenging­," it said.

    "Recent events in France, Canada and Australia serve as a sobering reminder of the risks associated with policing," the federal force said in a statement...................http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/903071.shtml

    President Barack Obama challenged the Republican-led Congress on Tuesday to break out of the “tired old patterns” of confrontational politics and back an effort to lift the middle class, with higher taxes on the rich and trade deals.

    Dogged since the start of presidency six years ago by an ailing economy, Obama appeared before a joint session of Congress and millions of Americans watching on television to declare that his policies have paid off with an economic revival that has trimmed the jobless rate to 5.6 percent.

    It is now time, he said, to “turn the page” from recession and war and work together to address those middle-class Americans who have been left behind.................http://www.france24.com/en/20150121-obama-state-union-middle-class-economy-cuba-tax-islamic-state/

    In an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, Mayor Anne Hidalgo said Paris planned legal action because the city's honor was "prejudiced" by Fox reports that wrongly suggested areas of the city were "no-go zones" that were closed to non-Muslims.

    "The image of Paris has been prejudiced and the honor of Paris has been prejudiced," Hidalgo said.

  6. Cuba lowers expectations on eve of high-level talks with US ...

    A senior Cuban official said yesterday (Jan 20) that restoring diplomatic ties with the United States won't immediately lead to a full relationship between the Cold War foes after a half-century of enmity.

    The message appeared designed to lower expectations a day before the arrival of the highest-level US delegation to Cuba in decades and just before President Barack Obama made his case in the State of the Union Address for seizing the opening with Cuba by ending the US trade embargo of the island. Mr Alan Gross, whose release from Cuba in a prisoner exchange last month cleared the way for a new relationship, sat next to Mrs Michelle Obama.

    “We are ending a policy that was long past its expiration date,” Mr Obama said. “When what you're doing doesn't work for 50 years, it's time to try something new.”....................http://www.todayonline.com/world/americas/cuba-lowers-expectations-eve-high-level-talks-us

In particular, it was said that the point at issue was ‘changing the status quo with the use of force’,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

    “In that connection, it is worth recalling that militarist Japan and Nazi Germany in pursuit of world supremacy used force to upset the status quo that had existed before World War II and occupied a number of states,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said...............http://itar-tass.com/en/russia/772529

    The European Union is preparing to step up its humanitarian aid to the people affected by the conflict in Ukraine, especially the displaced and those who need help to weather the severe cold which has gripped the country. Commissioner Christos Stylianides, responsible for humanitarian aid and crisis management, will be in Ukraine on January 26-27 to discuss the emergency with the authorities in Kyiv, to meet victims of the crisis in the East and to reaffirm the EU's solidarity with the affected people.

    "I am very worried about the situation of the thousands of Ukrainians thrown in a real humanitarian crisis by this conflict. Winter is making their suffering even greater, and is especially harsh on the displaced, children, the elderly, the poorest. Europe has been helping the most vulnerable victims of this crisis since its early days and we will continue to do so. I will be in Kyiv and Dnepropetrovsk to make sure our assistance continues to bring relief everywhere it is needed. The Commission is preparing a joint humanitarian package with Member States – yet another sign that we stand together by the Ukrainian people and that our solidarity is tangible and collective," Commissioner Stylianides said.

    Collectively, EU Member States and the European Commission have provided over €76 million in humanitarian and recovery assistance for Ukraine. On the ground, this assistance is translating into shelter for the displaced, health care for the injured and the sick, food, water, sanitation and other emergency aid. According to the UN, the conflict in Ukraine has displaced more than 600,000 people inside Ukraine and has forced close to 600,000 people to flee to neighbouring countries.

  33. The leader of Greek left-wing party Syriza says an end to "national humiliation" is near, as opinion polls put the party ahead three days before the general election...

    Alexis Tsipras asked supporters for a clear mandate to enable him to end the country's austerity policies.

    He repeated his promise to have half of Greece's international debt written off when the current bailout deal ends.

    Greece has endured deep budget cuts tied to the massive bailout.

    Sunday's election is being closely watched by financial markets which fear that a Syriza victory could lead Greece to default on its debt and exit from the euro.

    "On Monday, national humiliation will be over. We will finish with orders from abroad," Mr Tsipras told thousands of cheering supporters at the party's final election rally in Athens.

    Two Greek fishing boats approaching the Kardak islets, 4.5 nautical miles from the Turkish coastal town Bodrum, retreated back to the Greek island of Kalymnos on Jan. 22, after the Turkish submarine “Tayfun” (Typhoon) surfaced in front of them, inside Turkish territorial waters.

    The Kardak islets - known as Imia in Greek - are a pair of two small, uninhabited rocks in the Aegean Sea situated between the Greek Dodecanese island chain and the southwestern mainland coast of Turkey. Greece and Turkey almost went to war over the islets in 1996.

    Tension often rises between Turkish and Greek coast guard boats in the Aegean Sea due to the conflicting claims both countries have over the territorial waters dividing them.

    Most recently, a Turkish coast guard boat prevented Greek fishermen from casting their nets inside Turkish territorial waters on Dec. 7, 2014, while a Turkish submarine and a Greek coast guard vessel were engaged in a maritime standoff on Nov. 17, 2014.

    "New Democracy will remain ready to play a decisive role in future developments, as the guarantors of the country's European course," he said.

Es hörte sich so an, als spräche da bereits ein Ministerpräsident in dem Wissen, dass die Worte eines Regierungschefs ungleich schwerer wiegen als die Forderungen eines Oppositionsführers. Dass die Sparpolitik „nicht Teil der europäischen Verträge ist“, hatte Tsipras schon bei früheren Gelegenheiten gesagt.

    Der Vorsitzende des Linksbündnisses Syriza, Alexis Tsipras, hat den deutlichen Vorsprung seiner Partei bei der Parlamentswahl in Griechenland als historisch bezeichnet. „Das griechische Volk hat Geschichte geschrieben“, sagte Tsipras am Sonntagabend in Athen. „Es lässt die desaströse Sparpolitik hinter sich.“ Das Votum der griechischen Wähler bedeute, „dass die Troika beendet ist“, sagte Tsipras.

    Reactions in Europe to the victory of anti-austerity party Syriza have suggested that Greece is on a "collision course" with the rest of the bloc. Eurozone finance ministers are to meet shortly.

    Syriza party leader Alexis Tsipras promised to end what he called Greece's "five years of humiliation and pain" after his election win.

    Tsipras has promised to write off half of Greece's debt, but has said he was ready to negotiate "a viable solution." He also wants the country to stay in the eurozone.

    The election result is expected to be one of the main issues at Monday's meeting of 19 eurozone finance ministers.

    With 88 per cent of the votes counted from Sunday's vote, Syriza was on 36.3 per cent of the vote and was projected by the Interior Ministry to get 149 seats - just two short of an overall majority. The governing center-right New Democracy party came a distant second.

    Russia suspended the contract in 2010 following a UN Security Council resolution to stop the sale of arms to Iran due to its controversial nuclear energy program.



    Iran expects Russia to meet its contractual obligations to deliver the S-300 air defense systems, canceled by Moscow after international sanctions were imposed on the country, Iranian Ambassador to Russia Mehdi Sanaei told RIA Novosti in an interview Tuesday.

    “Iran continues to view the S-300 contract as legitimate and not a subject of international sanctions as it was signed before the introduction of sanctions and the [S-300] is a defensive rather than an offensive system,” Sanaei said.

    Russia agreed in 2007 to accept $800-million from Iran to deliver five S-300 surface-to-air missile defense systems.

    "In view of the worsening situation we ask the upcoming Foreign Affairs Council to assess the situation and to consider any appropriate action, in particular on further restrictive measures," the statement said.

    The aim was a "swift and comprehensive implementation of Minsk agreements," it said, referring to a largely ignored peace plan dating from September.

    "We express our concern about the deteriorating security and humanitarian situation in eastern Ukraine. We condemn the killing of civilians during the indiscriminate shelling of the Ukrainian city of Mariupol on 24 January 2015," they added.

    Turkish Cypriot daily Kibris newspaper (26.01.15) reports that according to the results of a survey conducted in the occupied area of Cyprus in December 2014 regarding the political tendencies of the Turkish Cypriots for the Cyprus problem and the solution model, the views of the inhabitants in the occupied area of Cyprus towards the solution have changed. The survey was conducted by sociologist Kudret Akay with the participation of 600 persons. The sampling frame was the so-called TRNC’s “election list”.

    Akay said that the results showed that the Turkish Cypriots adopt a “solution model based on pragmatic interests rather than on the concepts of peace, brotherhood and common country”. He argued that the Turkish Cypriots started to distance themselves from the solution based on the Annan Plan, after the 2004 referendum and the rejection of the plan by the Greek Cypriots.

    The findings of the survey are as following:
    62.7% of the participants in the survey want a bi-zonal, bi-communal solution as it is generally described by the UN, but 60.1% believe that such a solution will not be found.

    Griechenlands Gläubiger sehen jetzt die neue Regierung in Athen am Zug. Sie müsse die bisherigen Absprachen einhalten. Dann könnte es aber neue Hilfen geben.

    Die Euro-Staaten und die EU-Kommission haben auf den Wahlsieg der linkspopulistischen Syriza-Partei und die Bildung einer Anti-Troika-Regierung in Griechenland demonstrativ gelassen reagiert. Der Chef der Euro-Finanzminister, der niederländische Ressortchef Jeroen Dijsselbloem, gratulierte der neuen Athener Regierung nach einem Treffen mit seinen Kollegen am Montag in Brüssel. Er kündigte an, man werde mit der neuen griechischen Regierung selbstverständlich zusammenarbeiten. „Und wir hören gerne, dass sie im Euroraum bleiben will.“ Allerdings änderten sich die wirtschaftlichen Probleme des Landes durch das Wahlergebnis nicht. Deshalb müsse auch die neue Regierung die Absprachen mit der Troika aus Internationalem Währungsfonds (IWF), EU-Kommission und Europäischer Zentralbank (EZB) einhalten, wenn sie weitere Unterstützung wolle. „Und ich bin mir ziemlich sicher, dass Griechenland weiter Hilfe braucht.“

    Dijsselbloem berichtete, der designierte Finanzminister Giannis Varoufakis habe ihm telefonisch eine konstruktive Zusammenarbeit zugesagt. Es bleibe aber dabei, dass über weitere Hilfe erst gesprochen werden könne, wenn das laufende Kreditprogramm zufriedenstellend abgeschlossen sei und Athen einen neuen Hilfsantrag stelle. Über Größenordnungen will die Eurogruppe derzeit nicht reden. Nach Diplomatenangaben stehen aber weiter jene 11 Milliarden Euro im Raum, die dem Land im Herbst als vorsorgliche Kreditlinie versprochen wurde.

  123. World Bank President Jim Yong Kim warns of pandemic threat...

    World Bank President Jim Yong Kim has warned that the world remains "dangerously unprepared" for deadly pandemics such as the Ebola outbreak that has killed thousands in west Africa.

    "The Ebola outbreak has been devastating in terms of lives lost and the loss of economic growth in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone," Mr Kim said in a speech at Georgetown University in Washington.

    "We need to make sure that we get to zero cases in this Ebola outbreak.

    "At the same time, we need to prepare for future pandemics that could become far more deadly and infectious than what we have seen so far with Ebola."

    Mr Kim said that a mix of international organisations such as his own, governments, businesses, non-governmental groups and donors need to put more efforts into planning for future possible pandemics.

    He said they need to build "stronger health systems, improved surveillance and chains of supply and transportation, and fast-acting medical response teams".

    "We must learn the lessons from the Ebola outbreak because there is no doubt we will be faced with other pandemics in the years to come."..................http://www.rte.ie/news/2015/0128/676082-ebola/

    "We’ll continue in the future to exert strenuous efforts for creating a favourable environment for the settlement of major problems the Ukrainian nation is facing," Lavrov said. "However, it is also necessary to bear in mind that the attempts at exerting pressure on Russia by unilateral sanctions, the application of which is illegal and condemned by decisions of the UN General Assembly, will not make us give up what we consider to be right and fair."

    Attempts of Brussels to shift to Russia responsibility for Ukrainian tragedy undermine European stability, he added.

    Le projet de budget du Pentagone prévoit une hausse des dépenses en armes, recherche et maintenance, qui avaient été réduites sous l'effet des coupes budgétaires automatiques, ont précisé ces responsables à l'AFP mercredi soir.

    Ces coupes étaient devenues effectives en 2013 après qu'élus démocrates et républicains au Congrès eurent échoué à trouver un accord pour réduire le déficit des Etats-Unis.

    The minister added that the plunge in the world oil prices has had a more serious impact on Russia’s economy. According to Siluanov, the country’s total loss from both sanctions and oil price fall exceeded $200 billion.

    "The key factor was the fall in oil price. We estimate lack of capital due to sanctions to total $40-50 billion," the minister said.

  150. Lessons from 1953: The debt write-off behind Germany's 'economic miracle'..

    Six decades ago, an agreement to cancel half of postwar Germany's debt helped foster a prolonged period of prosperity in the war-torn continent. The new government in Athens says Greece – and Europe – now need a similar deal.

    When discussing Greece’s whopping $310 billion debt, the country's new Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras likes to recall a time when Europe's great debt offender was not Greece, but Germany, today's paragon of fiscal responsibility. The leader of the radical-left Syriza party refers in particular to an international conference held in London in 1953, during which West Germany secured a write-off of more than 50% of debt, accumulated after two world wars. Back then, with memories of Nazi atrocities still fresh, many countries were reluctant to offer such generous debt relief. But the US persuaded its European allies, including Greece, to relinquish debt repayments and reparations in order to build a stable and prosperous Western Europe that could contain the threat from Soviet Russia.

    “Tsipras is right to remind Germans how well they were treated, with both debt relief and money from the Marshall Plan,” says Professor Stephany Griffith-Jones, an economist at Columbia University, referring to the US programme to help rebuild European economies after World War II. She believes Greece is justified in demanding a more generous approach from its creditors, despite obvious differences between its current plight and that of war-ravaged Germany. “In fact, Greece’s situation is perhaps more urgent because the pressure from markets and the financial sector is so much stronger than in the 1950s,” she says..................http://www.france24.com/en/20150129-london-agreement-1953-debt-write-germany-economic-miracle-greece-austerity/

    Die Einigung stand auf der Kippe. Am Ende hat sich die EU aber doch verständigt, die Russland-Sanktionen trotz der Bedenken in Athen zumindest teilweise zu verlängern. Man habe "den griechischen Kollegen überzeugt", sagte Außenminister Steinmeier.

    Die EU-Außenminister haben sich nach schwierigen Verhandlungen darauf verständigt, die Sanktionen im Ukraine-Konflikt teilweise zu verschärfen. Reise- und Vermögenssperren gegen russische und ukrainische Staatsbürger sollen bis September verlängert werden, hieß es in der Abschlusserklärung des Treffens.

    Betroffen sind 28 Unternehmen und Organisationen sowie 132 Personen.

    The UNSC is expected to adopt today a resolution for the renewal of the mandate of UNFICYP (UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus) for six more months, until July 31, 2015.

    In its final draft resolution, the UNSC calls for the resumption of structured negotiations without delay, in a results oriented manner as agreed to in the Joint Declaration adopted by the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot leaders on 11 February 2014, and stresses the need for renewed efforts of the leaders and negotiators to reach a comprehensive settlement as soon as possible.

    Furthermore, it acknowledges the progress made so far in the fully fledged negotiations, but notes that this has not been sufficient and has not yet resulted in a comprehensive and durable settlement, and calls for an urgent resumption of structured negotiations to reach decisive progress on the core issues.

    The UNSC recalls its resolution 2026 (2011), and calls upon the two leaders to put their efforts behind further work on reaching convergences on the core issues, to continue to work with the Technical Committees with the objective of improving the daily lives of the Cypriots, to
    improve the public atmosphere for the negotiations, including by focussing public messages on convergences and the way ahead, and delivering more constructive and harmonised messages and to increase the participation of civil society in the process as appropriate.........http://www.parikiaki.com/2015/01/un-security-council-to-call-for-resumption-of-cyprus-talks-without-delay/#sthash.9Mh9WcZW.dpuf

    He said that the new homes were to be built in four existing settlements across the West Bank -- 112 in Adam, 156 in Elkana, 78 in Alfei Menashe and 84 in Kiryat Arba.

    Seidemann, whose group particularly monitors settlement in Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem, predicted that building plans there were likely to be announced soon.

  182. Egyptian Court Bans Hamas' Armed Wing as Terrorist Organization ...

    An Egyptian court on Saturday banned the armed wing of the Palestinian group Hamas and listed it as a terrorist organization.

    Hamas is an offshoot of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood which the authorities have also declared a terrorist group and have repressed systematically since the army ousted one of its leaders, Mohamed Morsi, from the presidency in 2013.

    The ruling came days after the country faced some of the bloodiest attacks on security forces in years. During Morsi’s one-year presidency, militants in Sinai kidnapped 7 soldiers and killed 16 others...............http://www.voanews.com/content/egyptian-court-bans-hamas-armed-wing-as-terrorst-organization/2622800.html

  183. Schulz: Neue Regierung handelt verantwortungslos...

    EU-Parlamentspräsident Martin Schulz kritisiert den Abbruch der Troika-Zusammenarbeit durch Griechenland. Und der haushaltspolitische Sprecher der Unionsfraktion, Barthle, sieht keine Basis für neues Hilfsprogramm. Das berichtet die F.A.S.

    Der Präsident des Europäischen Parlaments Martin Schulz (SPD) hat sich alarmiert über die Entscheidung des griechischen Finanzministers Yanis Varoufakis gezeigt, nicht mehr mit der Troika aus EU-Kommission, EZB und IWF zusammenzuarbeiten und das laufende Hilfsprogramm vorzeitig zu beenden. „Wenn die griechische Regierung wirklich nicht mehr mit den Geldgebern auf der bisherigen Grundlage zusammenarbeiten will, dann halte ich das für verantwortungslos“, sagte Schulz der Frankfurter Allgemeinen Sonntagszeitung (F.A.S.). Die Zusammenarbeit laufe ohnehin Ende Februar aus. „Über neue Formen muss verhandelt werden, das geht nur im Wege des Konsenses und nicht der Provokation“, sagte Schulz weiter.

    Schulz wies auch das Ansinnen der Regierung von Alexis Tsipras zurück, eine internationale Konferenz zur Entschuldung des Landes einzuberufen. „Über eine Schuldenkonferenz kann man erst reden, wenn Griechenland zu seinen Verpflichtungen steht. Sie müssen die vereinbarten Schritte zu Ende bringen, bevor wir über neue reden“, sagte er der F.A.S....................http://www.faz.net/aktuell/politik/europaeische-union/schulz-griechische-regierung-verantwortungslos-13401531.html

  185. Ukraine peace talks end without agreement...

    Peace talks on Ukraine ended without an agreement Saturday with a government representative accusing separatist envoys of undermining the meeting by making ultimatums and refusing to discuss plans for a ceasefire, Interfax news agency said.

    Representatives for the rebels, Russia, Ukraine and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe spent four hours at a government compound in Minsk, Belarus as part of closed-door negotiations aimed at establishing a truce between government and separatist forces fighting in eastern Ukraine.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President François Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, in a telephone conversation, all expressed hope that the negotiations would focus on a cease-fire and pulling out heavy weaponry from residential areas, the Kremlin said.

    But after the talks came to an end late Saturday evening, Ukraine’s envoy, Leonid Kuchma, told Interfax the negotiations had been "thwarted" after top rebel leaders stayed away and their negotiators refused “to discuss a plan of measures for a quick ceasefire and a pull-back of heavy weapons”.

    He also accused the insurgents' representatives of putting forward "ultimatums", without giving any more details..............http://www.france24.com/en/20150131-ukraine-peace-talks-end-without-agreement/
