US says ‘no point’ in UN meeting on North Korea after latest missile test

The ambassador suggested that Beijing pursue other diplomatic challenges to convert North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.

Haley’s comments represent a change of direction after announcing last week that he was seeking China’s support for a new resolution to isolate North Korea.

The change of attitude after a change of tone similar to that of Donald Trump who condemned the Chinese government very little in return for its neighbor and traditional ally.

Trump does not promise to stop China “doing nothing” in North Korea after the last missile test

Haley said in a statement: “A new Security Council resolution that does not significantly increase international pressure on North Korea has no value.

“It is actually worse than nothing, as it sends the message to the North Korean dictator that the international community does not really argue. China must decide if it is finally ready to take this important step.”

While Haley has not threatened to take military action against North Korea in his last statement, he said this month that the United States would use military force if diplomacy failed.

Haley said last week that his team did not “keep in touch with China and I can say things are moving” towards a new proposed UN Security Council agreement.

North Korea’s first missile launches led Haley, his South Korea and Japanese counterparts Cho Tae-yul and Koro Bassho to convene emergency meetings to impose additional sanctions.

That is not going to happen after the last Friday missile test highlighting the strategy change.

“Many have wondered if the United States will seek an emergency session of the Security Council on Monday,” Haley said.

“There is no need to have an emergency meeting if nothing of importance comes up. North Korea is already subject to numerous Security Council resolutions that are violated with impunity and not respected by all UN member states.”

Trump hit China, just hours before Haley has published his announcement, saying that Beijing could have avoided North Korea to succeed in efforts to develop nuclear weapons.

The US Treasury has identified the Dandong Bank as a “foreign financial institution of the main concern for money laundering,” which serves as a “gateway to access North Korea to the United States and financial systems Which facilitated millions of transactions for companies involved in ballistic and ballistic missile programs in North Korea, “Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said last month.

The parties subject to secondary sanctions also included Dalian Global Shipping Co Unit, in addition to two Chinese citizens accused of having ties with North Korean bank executive Ri Song-Hyok.

Four Arab countries say they are ready for Qatar dialogue with conditions

DUBAI (Reuters) – The four Arab countries that have severed ties with Qatar said on Sunday they were ready for talks to address the dispute if Doha had intended to meet their demands.

Foreign ministers from Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates met in Bahrain, capital of Manama, to discuss the crisis that has raised tensions throughout the region.

The Saudi block blocked ties with the Gulf state on June 5, accusing it of supporting militant groups and consulting with its enemy Iran, denying the accusations that Doha.

Kuwait’s diplomatic efforts and support from Western powers have failed to end the dispute, in which the four states have independent travel and communications with Qatar.

“The four countries are ready to dialogue with Qatar on the condition that it announces its sincere desire to stop terrorism and extremism funding and its commitment not to interfere in the foreign affairs of other countries and to satisfy claims,” ​​said the minister of Foreign Affairs of Bahrain, Cheikh Khalid bin Ahmed al-Khalifa, said at a joint news conference after the meeting.

They have not announced any new economic sanctions for the Gulf state.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain have already published a list of 13 Qatari claims, which include reducing their support for the Muslim Brotherhood, closing Al Jazeera in Doha, closing a military base in Turkey And reducing its relations with the enemy Gulf Iran.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said that Qatar was not serious to meet the demands of countries.

“We are willing to talk to Qatar to implement the requirements of the implementation of the principles, if Qatar is serious, but clearly it is not,” he said.

The four countries have also listed “six principles” that they want Qatar to adopt.

Qatar Foreign Minister Cheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani rejected the statement from the four countries on Sunday and said sanctions violate international law.

“There is no clear vision (of the Manama meeting), there is a stubborn policy blocking countries and refusal to admit that it is illegal actions,” Sheikh Mohammed told al Jazeera television channel.

Earlier Sunday, the Al-Hayat newspaper said, citing unidentified sources in the Gulf, the four countries “should impose sanctions that will gradually affect Qatar’s economy.”

Saudi Arabia has closed its land border with Qatar, while four countries have cut off air connections with Doha requiring the country’s gas export to take several steps to demonstrate that it was changing its policies.

Turkey and Iran were involved in supplying produce, poultry and fresh dairy products in Qatar instead of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, Oman and provides alternative port to those of the United Arab Emirates.

The four Arab countries have added 18 individuals and groups who say they are linked to their Qatar “terrorist” lists last week.

MLB Trade Deadline: Cubs reportedly land Justin Wilson and Alex Avila from Tigers

MLB Trade Deadline: Cubs reportedly land Justin Wilson and Alex Avila from Tigers

MLB Trade Deadline: Cubs reportedly land Justin Wilson and Alex Avila from Tigers

When Wilson finds himself in the Cubs bullpen is a fun topic. Wade Davis remains the closest, but many types Maddon employs in late, high-altitude situations, including Carl Edwards Jr., Pedro Strop, Koji Uehara, Hector Rondon and Brian Duensing under.

Mike Montgomery is a southpaw like Duensing and Wilson, but he stays along as a kid. Justin Grimm may have difficulty being assigned to be assigned here as they are likely to type Wilson’s presence.

The appearance of the Cubs’ reliever body was already strong. The team currently has a Bullpen 3.34 ERA, which is good for the quarter (linked to the Yankees, in fact) in the Major Leagues, just behind the Indians, Dodgers and Red Sox. Now it’s the best.

Looking back, a trio of back-end Davis, Wilson and Edwards with Uehara as gears, Duensing as a guy just needs to get left, along Montgomery as a man and softener and Rondon available continues Being of first class.
Keep in mind that other NL competitors like the Dodgers and Nationals have also lived for Wilson to get it is also a win for the visitors, the Cubs are planning to face the playoffs.

Even more bonuses for the Cubs is that Wilson did not enter the free agency until after 2018. If Wade Davis walks in the free agency – which looks likely to set the stage – the Cubs could switch Wilson closer role next season.

Avila, 30, hit .274 / .394 / .475 with 11 doubles, 11 doubles and 32 RBIs in 264 flat appearances this season. Young Willson Contreras is firmly entrenched as the starting manifold, so Avila is likely to be used to rest Contreras.

Note that you can handle Contreras field on the left, too, if the Cubs wanted to use there with Avila behind the plate. The innovator Victor Caratini be returned to minors to open the way to Avila.

Candelario, 23, is a .136 / .240 / .250 hitter in 50 major league games. He batted .266 / .361 / .507 with 27 doubles, three trebles and 12 bouts in 81 games with Triple-A Iowa this season. It was considered a high range of pamphlets and ranked number 96 in the baseball booklet in the year by

Candelario can play first base or third base. With tigers, you will also have a chance of DH. Although many candidates, which was very consumable for the Cubs, such as Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant block the foreseeable future.

It is currently locked in Detroit also, by Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and Nick Castellanos, but the tigers are being rebuilt, which can store younger workers, regardless of their position, is a good start.

Paredes is a short-term 18-year-old third baseman who plays with class A. Through 91 games, he hit .261 / .341 / .399 with 25 doubles, seven runs, 49 RBIs, 49 RBIs and two bases. Stolen Without doubt, it is projectable, but far from the major ones. Again, it makes sense to both parties.

Rethink your strategy




One in three public companies likely won’t be around in five years, and the spread between the highest- and low­est-performing companies has never been greater, according to new research from the Boston Consulting Group (BCG). Identifying effective corporate strategy is more important than ever before, and this is the central theme of the latest BCG book, Your Strategy Needs a Strategy. Authored by BCG senior partners Martin Reeves, Knut Haanaes, and Janmejaya Sinha, the book explores the different environments that busi­nesses currently face, identifying and matching the right stra­tegic approach to a given situation. Their framework is called

the “strategy palette”. “The book explains a simple framework that we call the strategy palette, which divides planning into four styles. Firms can chose any of these styles, according to predictability of their business environment and how much power they have to change it. Leaders play a key role in this by making sure that the strategy is vibrant, dynamic and in tune with the changing environment. With a clear under­standing of the strategic styles available and the conditions under which each is appropriate, companies can make the best out of the opportunities available to them at hand,” said Dr Janmejaya Sinha, chairman, BCG Asia Pacific.          ♦

Honest account


The dramatic build-up to the overnight nationalisation of 14 banks in a single legislative sweep sets the stage for No Regrets. In this book, bureau­crat extraordi­naire D.N. Ghosh offers an eyewit­ness account of perhaps the most important event in India’s banking history post-Inde­pendence, baring the manoeuvr- ings behind the enabling ordi­nance and the pickle over fair compensation for the dispos­sessed bank owners. Years later, Ghosh enters the portals of the State Bank of India as its chair­man, at a time when the stir­rings of change have just begun to be felt in the Indian economy. Anticipating the future, he goes for a paradigm shift: to rid profit of its dirty word tag and place it at the core of the bank’s operating
strategy. Gradually, he takes SBI into the capital markets, estab­lishes its credit standing glob­ally, launches India’s first mutual fund and, above all, cajoles the trade unions into accepting full com­puterisation. Post­retirement, Ghosh steps into the cor­porate world. The could-have-been- academic tills the soil for certain reputable manage­ment institutes to bloom and grow even as he sets up the credit rating agency, ICRA. Full of untold stories, No Regrets is an honest-to-goodness account of a glorious career spanning over six decades and covering some epochal events whose reverber­ations continue to be felt in the corridors of bureaucracy, bank­ing and business to this day. The book was launched in Mumbai by Arundhati Bhattacharya, chair­man, SBI, and Deepak Parekh, chairman, HDFC.
