Hachim Mastour to Play for Moroccan National Team

Rabat- Hachim Mastour, AC Milan’s midfielder, has reportedly welcomed his inclusion on the list of players called to play on head coach Badou Ezzaki’s Morocco’s national team, according to Hesport.Mastour is among the 30 players the Moroccan coach called ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations first qualifying match against Libya, scheduled to take place on June 12 in Agadir, in southern Morocco.One of Mastour’s relatives told Hesport that the Moroccan young player is ready to play for the Morocco and put an end to the speculation on which national team he would eventually choose. Since entering the spotlights a few years ago, Italian and Moroccan observers have wondered whether the Moroccan player will play for Italy or Morocco.It seems that the player has taken his time to reflect on his decision and has learned from the experience of other promising players who faced similar situations in recent years.According to the same source, Moroccan-Spanish player Mounir Haddadi affected Mastour’s decision. Haddadi decided to play for Spain, only for Spanish coach Vicente Del Bosque to leave him off the team after he played his first official match with the Spanish squad.The other factor that allegedly influenced Mastour’s decision is the fate of several Brazilian players who decided to play for the Italian squad and were sidelined after they played for the first time, killing any hope for them to represent their home country.The same source added that the Moroccan player is waiting for the Moroccan Football Federation to send a formal request to AC Milan so he can officially declare his intention to play for Morocco.Mastour became a household name in 2013 after British sports website named him the world’s top rising stars on a list of 100 rising football players.The young Moroccan started his career with Reggina before his transfer to AC Milan in 2012 for a world-record teenage transfer, worth 500,000 euros.The player, who will turn 17 next June, made his debut on AC Milan’s first squad in May 2014.“He has the quality of Robinho, the professionalism of Kaka, and the natural ability of Ballotelli,” Milan’s former coach Massimiliano Allegri was quoted saying about Mastour. read more

April Jones murder suspect tearful in court

first_imgMARK BRIDGER, the man suspected of murdering five-year-old April Jones, appeared in court today as police continued to search the young girl’s home town.Sky News said that Bridger, 46, was “tearful” during his appearance at Aberystwyth Magistrates’ Court. He was remanded in custody and will appear at Caernarfon Crown Court on Wednesday.Police had said there was enough evidence to bring Bridger to court on a number of charges.“Having carried out a detailed review of the evidence provided so far by Dyfed-Powys Police, my conclusion is that there is sufficient evidence to charge Mark Bridger with the murder of April Jones and that it is in the public interest to do so,” said District Crown Prosecutor Iwan Jenkins.“Accordingly, I have authorised Dyfed-Powys Police to charge him with these offences and he will appear here at Aberystwyth Magistrates? Court on Monday morning,” he added.Around 100 police officers are searching for the missing girl around her home town of Machynlleth in mid-Wales.Bridger was arrested on Tuesday, the day after the schoolgirl disappeared, and was originally held on suspicion of abduction but investigators on Friday revealed he had been detained on suspicion of murder.Jones was last seen on Monday in Machynlleth getting into a vehicle. The search has been played out in the glare of television cameras, with every stage being followed closely by the media who have descended on the Montgomeryshire town.Police have revealed that April needs regular medication for cerebral palsy, further increasing fears for her wellbeing.Pink ribbons have appeared on houses across the town after April’s mother asked people to wear pink, her daughter’s favourite colour, in solidarity.- © AFP, 2012Read: Hundreds gather for church service for missing April Jones>Comments have been disabled as court proceedings have begunlast_img read more

Turning A Toxic Landfill Into An Oasis

first_imgThe Wadi Hanifa is a valley in Saudia Arabia, that’s over 75 miles long. And thanks to increased urbanization, it became subject to runoff from a local sewage treatment plant, turning it into a toxic sewer. But in 2001 Moriyama & Teshima Planners, a Toronto-based architectural firm, was tasked with cleaning up the valley and has now been recognized for turning it into a sparkling oasis.The firm won five Aga Khan awards this week for its work on the $100 million project, funded by the city of Riyadh.“Wadi Hanifa was Riyadh’s dump and its sewer,” Moriyama & Teshima Planners president George Stockton said. “What we wanted to do was to bring Wadi Hanifa back to life. So after decades of neglect, we are now seeing this amazing rebirth and transformation of Wadi Hanifa as a naturalized park system.In addition to cleaning up the valley, the rehabilitation project also included the installation of dams to regulate water flow and planting reeds to help purify the water further. The Wadi Hanifa now serves as a home to plenty of social activities, including fishing and picnicking.You can view a series of before and after images of the valley at the CBC.last_img read more

Australian dollar affected by Greek debt talks

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram As Greece’s debt talks with its international creditors remain at a standstill, the Australian dollar has continued to drop, buying 77.37 US cents shortly before 9:00am (AEST).Neighbouring New Zealand’s currency was affected little however, buying 69.02 US cents at 8am in Wellington. Following a recent meeting involving European finance ministers, plans have been announced to meet again over the weekend in a final attempt to reach an agreement. With a Grexit still a looming possibility, investors are being cautious, as Greece’s departure from the Eurozone could have serious consequences for the rest of Europe and global economy. While fears of financial turmoil loom, overnight the main global equity markets saw little change.Local stocks are expected to follow a similar trend with the SPI 200 0.1 per cent lower at 5,556.Source: ABClast_img read more

Washington to negotiate on Columbia salmon reforms

first_imgWith time running short to adopt 2017 fishing seasons, the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission on Friday delegated authority to director Jim Unsworth to negotiate the differences with Oregon regarding the controversial Columbia River salmon reforms.The Washington commission also intends to write a letter to its Oregon counterparts proposing a face-to-face meeting and to ask about Oregon’s commitment to shifting commercial fishing in the fall in the lower Columbia away from gillnets to gear allowing release of wild fish.Friday’s discussion by the Washington commission is the latest in a back-and-forth process between the two states that begin in 2013 and ramped up in January.Reforms adopted by both states in early 2013 allocated more chinook salmon to sportsmen in the main Columbia and restricted gillnetting to off-channel sites like Youngs Bay near Astoria. The reforms also called for commercial fishing that remained in the main Columbia to be done with live-capture methods — such as purse seines and beach seines — designed to harvest hatchery stocks and release wild fish.last_img read more

Penton Launches New Wealth Management Website

first_img“In our thinking, is the uber-brand,” says Warren Bimblick, Penton’s senior vice president of strategy and business development. “And if we really are trying to get our users to use us in surround sound, then what better way than to tie them together by subsuming strong print brands into a digital branding.”The move is a strategic one, not symbolic, stresses Bimblick, who adds that REP. and Trusts & Estates, with 94,000 (controlled) and 8,600 (paid) circulations respectively, will act as feeders to the main destination site. Accordingly, the site has adopted a hybrid free/registration/paid content model. Previously REP., which an average of about 184,000 monthly page views, had a free content model and T&E, with about 52,000 average monthly page views, was gated. Across the print and digital platforms the two brands have amassed a database of 600,000 names and Bimblick says promotions are now underway to drive that audience to the new site. While the digital platform made sense for a blended brand approach, the print brands will remain separate, says Bimblick. “One is a paid title and one is controlled. REP. is for financial advisors T&E is a paid subscription, peer-reviewed journal and a lot of its content is very specific for lawyers and accountants. They’re really quite different.” B-to-b media company Penton has launched a new website targeting the wealth management market called, appropriately enough, The site merges two brands, and Trusts&, into one site.Those two brands are also supported by print titles—Registered Rep. and Trusts & Estates. Registered Rep. will changed its name to REP. and both titles, effective with the June issues, will become “units” of The subordinate role will be reflected in the magazines’ new taglines. REP. will read “The magazine for financial professionals” and Trusts & Estates will read “The journal for estate and planning professionals.”last_img read more

Apple Card Apple TV Plus Apple Arcade Its just another way to

first_img It’s showtime for Apple’s streaming service The company’s revamped TV app will be on Macs, iPads and, of course, iPhones. The app brings together various streaming services — except, notably, Netflix — in one place and serves up recommendations for what you should watch next. “Everything you saw is amazing on iPhone,” said Peter Stern, Apple vice president of services. The TV app even will come to smart TVs from Samsung, LG, Sony and Vizio and streaming video boxes from Roku and Amazon. “Now that you’ve seen the new Apple TV app, you’re going to want it on all of your screens,” Stern added.Apple didn’t specify where its biggest news of the day, its TV Plus streaming video service, will be available when it goes live, but it’s likely to be found in the same places as the TV app, a feature of iOS, MacOS and smart TVs. Even Oprah made an appearance to promote why she’s working with Apple on Apple TV Plus. Hint: It has a lot to do with the iPhone. “A billion devices, y’all!” Oprah told the crowd. Apple remains the iPhone company. Colin Gillis, analyst, Chatham Road Partners CNET editors break down Apple’s TV Plus event For now, though, those people are out of luck. On Monday, Apple didn’t say a word about any of its services coming to Android or Windows devices. It didn’t even say if its TV content could be accessed through a desktop web browser. And an Apple spokesperson said the company didn’t have more information to share beyond what it said on stage Monday.”People are used to watching content on any device they have at the time, and it’s not always on Apple devices,” Technalysis Research analyst Bob O’Donnell said. “Apple can’t make services truly successful if it’s only on its own devices.”Tiptoeing outside the walled gardenThere are signs Apple may not be a completely walled garden for long. The company has long created a version of its iTunes service that works on Windows computers. That proved to be a smart move from the start, with downloads jumping when iTunes became available on Windows PCs in late 2003, about six months after the service launched on Macs.Since then, however, Apple’s services have primarily stayed inside the Apple ecosystem, aside from Apple Music. There’s an Apple Music app for Android, which Apple first offered as a beta before rolling it out broadly. And in December, the company rolled out Apple Music for Amazon Echo speakers, allowing users to ask the Alexa voice assistant to play tracks from Apple’s streaming service.But Apple’s Android app doesn’t work as flawlessly as the iOS version, and new features often appear months or even years after they hit the iOS app. In January at CES, Apple made yet another step into putting its services on rival devices by partnering with major TV makers. Samsung’s smart TVs will offer support for iTunes movies and TV shows beginning this spring. Samsung TVs will also support AirPlay 2, Apple’s upgraded Wi-Fi audio streaming technology, allowing customers to stream videos, music and other content directly to their TV from an Apple device.While Samsung is the only TV maker to offer iTunes TV and videos on its sets, other companies — LG, Vizio and Sony — will let users stream content from their iPhones, iPads and Macs to their televisions. Phones Tablets Computers Digital Media TV and Movies Overall, Monday’s event was big on hype and short on details. Aside from Apple News Plus, nothing announced could be accessed right away. Apple touted partner after partner for its gaming and TV services, but it didn’t give many details about pricing or when we can subscribe to them. One thing, however, was supremely clear: Despite Apple’s declarations that it wants to become a services powerhouse, at heart it’s still “the iPhone company.”About two-thirds of the company’s revenue comes from its smartphone, an influx of money that helped it become the first trillion-dollar US company. That reliance has become a problem because people have upgraded their devices less often. Apple’s no longer valued at over a trillion dollars, and earlier this year, it reported a rare miss in quarterly sales because of weaker iPhone demand. Apple has an opportunity with its new services to woo people who just like to watch TV, read the news or play games on their mobile devices. People who own iPhones, iPads and Macs already buy into Apple’s message. It’s everyone else, those Android and Windows device owners, who Apple could target as an opportunity for real expansion. • Aug 31 • iPhone 11, Apple Watch 5 and more: The final rumors At its event Monday, Apple went even further. Its redesigned TV app will land on Samsung smart TVs this spring, then move to LG, Sony and Vizio TVs. Roku and Amazon Fire TV streaming-video devices also will be supported.But that’s where its openness ends. At least in the beginning, none of the services appear to work with Android or Windows.Closing itself off from Android and Windows devices shuts Apple off from a significant percentage of the phone, tablet and PC markets. About 85 percent of all smartphones run Android, according to IDC, and that’s not changing for the foreseeable future. More than half of the world’s tablets also use Android, according to Net Applications, and over 85 percent of all desktop and laptop computers in the world run Windows, the researcher said.Apple likely will eventually make its services run on rival devices. If it’s serious about becoming more than an iPhone maker, it has to.But no matter how much it does in services, Apple’s reliance on the iPhone isn’t ending anytime soon.”Video streaming is not going to save shares of [Apple] if the iPhone market declines,” Chatham Road Partners analyst Colin Gillis noted. “Apple remains the iPhone company.”The story originally ran at 5 a.m. PT.  Tags 97 Photos 10 Apple is expanding the services it offers, but most of its sales still come from the iPhone.  Screenshot by CNET Apple just can’t shake that iPhone addiction.At a flashy event on Monday, the company time and time again stressed how great its services will work on its mobile devices. For its premium Apple News Plus subscription package, magazines have been designed to take advantage of the iPhone or iPad, adding animated covers and automatically downloading content for convenience. “I can read full magazine issues no matter where or when, right from my phone,” said Wyatt Mitchell, Apple’s director of design for applications, during Monday’s event.The Apple Arcade game subscription service will give Apple device users unlimited access to more than 100 new and exclusive games. “You won’t find these games on any other mobile platform or any other subscription service,” said Ann Thai, a senior product manager for the App Store.And Apple’s new no-fee credit card, Apple Card, requires an iPhone to work. “It can do all sorts of things no other credit card can do,” said Jennifer Bailey, head of Apple Pay. “For starters, you don’t have to wait days to get your card. Just sign up on your iPhone.” Commentscenter_img Aug 31 • Best places to sell your used electronics in 2019 Apple See also reading • Apple Card, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade: It’s just another way to say iPhone Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross.

North Korea aims to have a flag on the moon in 10

first_imgNorth Korea is not shy about announcing its ambitions for military and space technology, and the two often seem intertwined. The reclusive authoritarian nation recently told the Associated Press that it has started a program to land a probe on the moon within ten years. It would be only the fourth nation to do so after the US, Russia, and China. North Korea has a history of stretching the truth, but it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that it could reach the moon in the not too distant future.The North Korean space agency has already launched several small satellites into orbit of Earth — this much has been confirmed. However, North Korea (or the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, as it likes to be called) claims ongoing communication with the KMS-4 satellite, but no outside experts are able to confirm any activity from the object.The US made its first flyby of the moon in 1959, just six months after launching its first satellite. However, it took eight more years to successfully orbit the moon. It’s fairly easy to shoot something near the moon, but you have to burn fuel to reduce that speed to reach a stable orbit. DPRK space science director Hyon Kwang Il says the country is currently planning more sophisticated Earth-orbital missions, including a geostationary satellite. Experts point out this would be a major step forward as you need more powerful and advanced engines to place a satellite in geostationary orbit than you’d need to reach lunar orbit.There’s no evidence thus far that North Korea’s space technology has reached the level to allow either of those missions to succeed. Experts contacted by the AP estimate at least 10-20 years before North Korea has the ability to orbit the moon. From there, you need to drop a small lander that can slow its descent, which comes with its own challenges. Whatever North Korea does with its space program, it will probably face additional sanctions from the international community.last_img read more

Senior bureaucrats from ministry likely to be summoned by police

first_imgThe Special Investigation Team (SIT) is keeping a vigil on former employees and a few senior bureaucrats from various ministries in connection to the corporate espionage case, after the recent arrest of the two former multi-tasking staffs (MTS) by the Crime Branch.“Very soon, the SIT will summon several senior bureaucrats from the ministry for investigation. Bureaucrats, employees and officials with the Public Sector Undertakings will also be questioned, as we have found the involvement of some of them in this case,” a source told Millennium Post. A senior police official privy to investigation said that the same module, which was involved in the stealing and leaking of documents, had their men within the ministry of environment and forests, ministry of power, ministry of telecommunications and ministry of road transport and highways.

The two arrested employees, who were associated with the environment ministry and the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) said that they have been stealing the documents since 1996 and selling them to the corporate houses.It has been revealed by the accused persons that documents from the forest ministry, transport and highways had been demanded by the corporate houses. After picking a few targets, the concerned offices were besieged and the lower-rung employees were contacted to procure the documents related to that ministry, the source said. Also Read – Man who cheated 20 women on matrimonial websites arrestedThe SIT arrested Jatinder Nagpal, personal assistant to the joint secretary in the ministry on Wednesday night. He was accompanied by one Vipan Kumar, personal assistant to a member of the UPSC. Kumar had joined the petroleum and natural gas ministry in the position of a stenographer in 1996. The police said that, from 1996 to 2010, Kumar used to steal documents from the ministry with the help of his contacts and subsequently pass them on to corporate houses. Nagpal, too, had joined service as a stenographer in 1994 at the ministry of law and justice, where he served till 2007. From 2001 to 2003, while he worked at the ministry of chemicals and fertilizers, he used to acquire documents from Vipan Kumar, Lokesh Sharma (already arrested earlier) and his other contacts.last_img read more

Greek election victor to hold coalition talks

first_img Comments   Share   5 people who need to visit the Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center “The country cannot waste a day,” the paper said. “It is clear from the arithmetic that after New Democracy’s victory a government can even be formed by two parties. But from a political viewpoint that will not suffice. All parties that say they believe in the country’s European future must actively prove their respect for the message of the elections.”The United States welcomed Sunday’s result. “We hope this election will lead quickly to the formation of a new government that can make timely progress on the economic challenges facing the Greek people,” the White House said in a statement.Power-sharing negotiations could be tough. Socialist PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos, who spent months negotiating bailouts as Greece’s finance minister, has suggested dumping the usual procedure of each party seeking coalition partners. He proposed a four-party coalition between New Democracy, Syriza, PASOK and Democratic Left, which was in sixth place with 6.3 percent of the vote and 17 seats.“There is not one day to lose. There is no room for party games. If we want Greece to really remain in the euro and get out of the crisis to the benefit of every Greek family, it must have a government tomorrow,” Venizelos said. Top holiday drink recipes Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Associated PressATHENS, Greece (AP) – Greek conservative leader Antonis Samaras will launch coalition talks Monday after coming first in national elections that follow weeks of uncertainty over the debt-crippled country’s future in Europe’s joint currency.The campaign was closely watched by global leaders and markets, as central banks stood ready to intervene in case of financial turmoil, as the Sunday’s election was seen as a vote on whether Greece should stay in the 17-nation group sharing the euro currency. A Greek exit would have had potentially catastrophic consequences for other ailing European nations, the United States and the entire global economy. Top Stories Leaders of the European Union appeared relieved that a pro-austerity government could now form. The group “is convinced that continued fiscal and structural reforms are Greece’s best guarantee to overcome the current economic and social challenges,” it said in a statement.Asian stock markets climbed early Monday on the news, as did those in Greece, with Athens stocks gaining 3.2 percent in early trading.Sunday’s vote “will probably ease fears of an imminent Greek euro exit,” said Martin Koehring of the Economist Intelligence Unit. “But the key question is how quickly can a government be formed?With 129 of Parliament’s 300 seats, Samaras’ New Democracy party lacks enough legislators to govern alone, and must seek allies among the smaller pro-bailout Socialists.But the deal that evaded Samaras after first elections on May 6 looks more attainable this time. With the Socialists’ backing he would control 162 seats, and could seek a further boost from the small Democratic Left party, which while opposing the country’s harsh austerity program has said it will do what is needed to help form a strong government.Samaras will receive the presidential mandate to start power-sharing talks shortly after noon, after President Karolos Papoulias is handed the final election results. More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths With 99.95 percent of the ballots counted so far, New Democracy has 29.66 percent, followed by the Syriza radical left coalition at 26.89 percent.Greece has survived for more than two years on rescue loans from its European partners and the International Monetary Fund. The vital bailouts are conditional on the country continuing with its deeply unpopular package of spending cuts, and pushing through new structural reforms.Syriza, which campaigned on a promise to renege on the bailout commitments, has ruled out cooperation with Samaras.Speaking shortly after the result was announced, Samaras said Greeks voted to stay in the euro, foster growth and respect the country’s international commitments.“This is a victory for all Europe,” he said. “I call upon all political parties who share these objectives to join forces and form a stable new government.”Samaras repeated campaign promises to honor the country’s bailout pledges.“We will work together with our partners in Europe in order to supplement the current policy mix with growth enhancement policies,” he said. “We are determined to do what it takes and do it fast.”Greece’s broad-circulation Ta Nea daily said in an editorial Monday that party leaders _ including Syriza’s Alexis Tsipras _ must respect voters’ manifest desire for a coalition government. Sponsored Stories Get a lawn your neighbor will be jealous of PASOK officials said Venizelos would insist on Syriza joining any future coalition, despite its anti-bailout stance _ although the move could simply be a negotiating tactic to convince the public that Syriza was unwilling to play a constructive role in pulling Greece out of its crisis.Tsipras, a 37-year-old former student activist, has ruled out such a possibility.Tsipras phoned Samaras on Sunday night to congratulate him on his victory and vowed that his party would remain outside the government.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Georgiades says 2018 budget to increase revenue 36 spending 29

first_imgThe government expects to collect over €7.4bn in 2018, or 3.6 per cent more than this year, and spend just below €7.4bn, up 2.9 per cent, Finance Minister Harris Georgiades said on Thursday.Addressing reporters after the cabinet approved the fiscal management framework for 2018 to 2020, Georgiades said the government will increase primary spending by €150m next year, according to a statement emailed by the Press and Information Office.“The increase in spending is within acceptable boundaries, which means that we will have a balanced budget in 2018 with a primary surplus, and with the continuing drop in public debt, it will fall below the 100 per cent margin in 2018,” Georgiades said. “We are replying to those worrying, scaremongering, or predicting a fiscal derailment”.The government, which generated a fiscal surplus of 0.4 per cent of economic output in 2016, aims at generating a 0.2 per cent surplus this year. Public debt rose to 107.8 per cent of the economy in 2016, from 107.4 per cent in 2015. The finance ministry adjusted upwards its growth forecast in April, to 2.9 per cent for 2017.On May 8, economist Symeon Matsis criticised the government for prioritising pay and welfare benefit increases over spending in growth boosting projects.The finance minister added that the cabinet decided to include development projects, including the Paphos to Polis road, the first stage of the Limassol to Saittas road, and the first stage of a new ring road in Nicosia.“These are projects that have been pending for decades,” he said. “These projects had not been included in the budget even during times we generated large deficits (and) spent money we did not have,” Georgiades said. “They are included and we remain within a balanced budget”The government will continue to fund largescale university projects and strengthen research infrastructure, while projects in various districts announced by the president, relating to energy, water works, and health and education, will be completed.Georgiades said the government also entered talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) “to secure their consent” for the early repayment of €280m, part of the €1bn loan received from the IMF as part of the 2013 bailout, as the government is in position to borrow money at a lower cost from international financial markets.“There is a difference of 0.5 per cent,” he said.Cyprus saw the yields of its outstanding international bonds decline sharply in recent days. The yield of the €1bn bond maturing in November 2025 dropped on Thursday morning to 2.96 per cent, down 3 basis points compared to Wednesday, when it fell for the first time below the 3 per cent mark. The bond was issued at an average yield of 4.25 per cent.Georgiades said that the finance ministry is evaluating and calculating the financial impact of the introduction of the national healthcare scheme, adding that “whatever the parliament decides with respect to the contributions, it will be implemented and the finance ministry will take them into account in its fiscal planning”.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

retailer IKEA is the first major retailer to use a living wage calculator when setting salaries By John Irish and Arshad Mohammed PARIS/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The remaining parties to the Iran nuclear deal have warned the United States that its decision to withdraw from the pact jeopardises Russian and Chinese efforts to limit Iran’s ability to develop atomic weapons Western diplomats told Reuters In pulling out of the 2015 deal US President Donald Trump triggered the revival of sanctions against the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) which oversees the Arak heavy water research reactor and the Fordow fuel enrichment plant Under the deal the Arak reactor was to be redesigned to render it unable to make bomb-grade plutonium under normal operation while the Fordow plant was to stop enriching uranium and be converted into a nuclear physics and technology center The restoration of US sanctions on AEOI would expose non-US companies to the risk of punishment by the United States for dealing with it including Chinese state-owned China National Nuclear Corp and Russia’s Rosatom which are doing nonproliferation work respectively at Arak and Fordow Neither company responded to requests for comment At a meeting in Vienna last Friday the non-US parties to the deal – Britain China France Germany Russia and Iran – discussed the subject extensively with Beijing and Moscow stressing their concerns three European diplomats said One senior European diplomat called the situation "crazy" and said the US withdrawal risked triggering a proliferation problem because its sanctions may halt work on Arak and Fordow "It may force the interruption of the dismantling of Iran’s nuclear sites It’s completely absurd" the diplomat said Iranian officials were not immediately available for comment Asked how Washington planned to address the concerns about AEOI being sanctioned and how it would serve US interests not to carry out the nonproliferation work at Arak and Fordow Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Ford said the US was aware of the other parties’ positions regarding AEOI "These questions are all under active consideration by the US government" he said in a statement relayed by a spokeswoman "Our posture towards Iran will be geared towards obtaining enduring nonproliferation benefits and constraining the full range of its malign activities" "AN IRONY" The 2015 agreement between Iran and world powers lifted international sanctions on Tehran In return Iran agreed to restrictions on its nuclear activities increasing the time it would need to produce an atom bomb if it chose to do so Trump abandoned the agreement on May 8 arguing that he wanted a bigger deal that not only limited Iran’s atomic work but also reined in its support for proxies in Syria Iraq Yemen and Lebanon and that curbed its ballistic missile program ? The remaining parties are trying to keep the deal alive "Everyone is focused on preserving the economic side of the agreement" said an EU diplomat "But if the (remaining parties) fail on the nuclear side of implementation while Iran is trying to comply it would really be an irony" The deal bars the production of enriched uranium at Fordow and says Russia will work with Iran there on producing stable isotopes which do not pose a proliferation risk On Arak the deal specifies that the new design will aim to minimise the production of plutonium and to prevent the production of weapon-grade plutonium in normal operation It also specifies the fuel Arak must use and says its spent fuel for the reactor’s lifetime must be shipped out of Iran Sanctions that would prevent companies from dealing with AEOI are due to be reimposed no later than Nov 5?
