New Delhi: In a unique order, the Delhi High Court on Tuesday directed a major Indian restaurant chain to use the Rs 20 lakh fine, imposed on it for violating the trademark of French luxury fashion goods manufacturer Hermes, to provide mid-day meals and sanitary napkins at several orphanages and foster care homes in the national capital.Justice Najmi Waziri told the restaurant chain owner, Riyaaz Nasruddin Amlani, that mid-day meals would be provided at 5 orphanages and 10 foster care homes for the next two years and the sanitary napkins would also be supplied there for one year. The court also directed Amlani’s company, Impresario Entertainment and Hospitality Pvt Ltd, to install a commercial grade water purifier at a 150-year old orphanage, Bachhiyon ka Ghar, apart from supplying sanitary pads there. The restaurant chain, which runs the popular bar and lounge ‘Odeon Social’ in the heart of the city at Connaught Place, has to get the water purifier installed within two weeks, the court said and ordered that the purifying system would be serviced by the company at its cost for the next five years. It further directed that the sanitary pads would be procured by Amlani’s company from the same source that the Delhi government does under its Kishori Yojana scheme and at the same rate — Rs 18 per pack of 10 napkins. Under the Kishori Yojana scheme, the Delhi government supplies sanitary pads to girls between the ages of 6-18 years in all the schools run and aided by it. Delhi government standing counsel Ramesh Singh told the court that under the scheme each girl is provided one pack containing 10 pads every month. The court imposed Rs 20 lakh as punitive damages on Amlani’s company on a contempt plea moved by Hermes International which alleged that the restaurant chain infringed its trademark in violation of a judicial order directing it to not do so. The court issued the directions for utilising the amount for the social cause after Hermes agreed to forego the money which would have come to it in the normal course of proceedings.
Rabat – The financial institution’s net international reserves amounted to MAD 244.4 billion as of May 5, 2017. This marks a 1.1 percent increase compared to a year earlier, stated Bank Al-Maghrib in its latest weekly indicators.According to the central bank, these reserves grew by 0.1 percent from May 4-10, 2017, compared to the previous week. During this period, the total amount of BAM’s interventions amounted to MAD 21.5 billion. Of this total, MAD 17 was injected in the form of 7-day advances on call for tenders, while MAD 4.5 billion was granted to the SMEs financing support program.BAM indicators also show that the interbank rate remained very close to the policy rate at 2.27 percent, while the exchanges volume increased from MAD 4.4 billion to 4.9 billion. On the stock market, the MASI Index fell by 0.6 percent, bringing its performance to 0.7 percent this year. The BAM noted that this weekly trend was mainly due to a 1.8 percent decrease in the banks’ sectoral index, 0.6 percent in the construction and building materials shares and a 1 percent decrease in the real estate industry shares.The AL Maghrib note also showed a 2.2 percent increase in the oil and gas index, while transactions amounted to MAD 534.1 million in the period from May 4-10, 2017. MAD 476.3 million of this was realized on the central market.As for the growth rate of M3, it slowed to 5.2 percent after hitting 5.4 percent in February. This mainly reflects a 10.1 percent decline in the forward deposit accounts and a slowdown in the growth of banks sight deposits of 7.5 percent.Similarly, the rate of increase in holdings of economic agents in securities of money market UCITS fell to 7.9 percent, while the rate of sight deposits decreased to 4.7 percent. Fiduciary circulation, on the other hand, grew by 6.2 percent after registering a 5.6 percent increase in February.BAM figures explain the decrease in M3 growth by the slowdown in growth of net international reserves from 7.3 percent to 4.3 percent and net claims on the central government from 12.4 percent to 9.7 percent. On the other hand, the pace of bank credit growth showed a 4.5 percent increase, compared to 3.7 percent increase the previous month.
Whenever I send out a resume, I am skeptical about what the words “overnight camp counsellor” might mean to the person reading it. What do people who have not gone to summer camp think my five summers as a counsellor communicate about me? Do they find it silly I even included it?To me, it is one of the most significant pieces of my work history. It communicates that I am hard-working, adaptable, creative and independent. A problem solver who has had to deal with my fair share of stress. It says that having worked in a 24/7 environment, I can be “on” for extensive periods of time. That I am capable of managing my own needs and the needs of others, simultaneously. That I know how to be positive in the face of difficulty, and how to guide others through difficult situations. It says I can both lead and be a team player.“The great thing about overnight camp counsellors is that they have actual, real, valuable skills,” says Michael McCutcheon, a counselling psychologist and career coach at Wanderlust Careers in New York City. “Like the ability to work with people from all sorts of backgrounds, the ability to hold the attention of antsy audiences, outside-the-box thinking.”Overnight camp counsellors bring a myriad of qualities that can’t be taught during onboarding or professional development seminars — qualities that take months or even years to engrain.The friends I grew up with at camp, both as campers and counsellors, now work in very different fields, yet in some form we all seem to utilize the skills camp gave us.Hillary Handler is a genetic counsellor and a PhD student in neuroscience. She says she worked harder during her five summers as a camp counsellor than she has in any job since.“It’s a 24-hour job that just comes at you and comes at you,” she says.In science, Handler explains, you have to be OK with failing again and again and still persevering toward your goal, trying new ways to achieve it. Camp, she says, taught her persistence.Handler believes the skills she gained working at camp may outlast all the others. Science is always changing, she says, and what you learn in a classroom or lab could end up obsolete in a year. Camp, on the other hand, gave her the motivation, self-determination and people skills she will need throughout her career.Ann Tobias, an MBA student at Yale and a former consultant, spent four summers as an overnight camp counsellor and believes employers should understand the scope of the work — the difficult task of keeping campers safe and happy while simultaneously acting as their role model. Knowing the seriousness and importance of role modeling, she says, is a strong quality in a camp counsellor.Tobias also urges employers to take references from camp directors seriously.“A camp director knows who their high performers are and who is making their life easier or harder,” she says. “It’s a high-intensity 10 weeks or so, and there are no secrets at camp. There’s no hiding your paperwork. They know who does a good job and who doesn’t. Those are pretty meaningful references.”Sally Cohen, now a lawyer at a high-powered firm, says the round-the-clock nature of being a camp counsellor prepared her well for her job demands. At camp, she explains, “Just because you’re asleep and it’s 2 a.m. doesn’t mean you won’t be called upon to do something.”She also says camp taught her how to work with a diverse group of people. Camp staff often comes from around the world, and must learn not only to work together but to live together.Since employers who were not camp counsellors may not appreciate these skills, Judi Lansky, president and founder of Chicago-based Lansky Career Consultants, says job seekers should clearly communicate them, whether on the resume, in a cover letter or in an interview.McCutcheon agrees, and says that too often applicants do not take advantage of their cover letter as an opportunity to tell their story.“Someone with a rich past like overnight camp can use this as an opportunity to thrive,” he says.Overnight camp counsellors know what it is to be an energetic, positive best friend and also a comforting, risk-managing, responsible role model. They sing songs through rainstorms and comfort crying children in the middle of the night. They provide fun and smiles even when they are exhausted or upset or missing someone. Camp counsellors are hard-working; they are resilient; they are strong.Hire them.Molly Sprayregen, The Associated Press

More than 80 Somali refugees have left Dadaab camp since Saturday when the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) restarted its return operation to Puntland, which is only accessible by air because it is not safe to travel by road in large parts of central and southern Somalia. A total of 2,880 Somalis have signed up for voluntary return, and UNHCR is trying to encourage more to follow through on “go and see” visits to Puntland, an economically vibrant part of Somalia that many of the refugees have not seen before. Even those whose parents or grandparents came from Puntland are not familiar with the boom that has transformed the area’s economic and physical landscape. Puntland’s economic development is being fuelled by former refugees who are bringing their education, money and business skills home after years spent in Canada, the United States or Western Europe. To allow the refugees to make informed decisions, UNHCR on Saturday took four leaders on a three-day visit to Bossaso, Puntland’s economic centre, Garowe, the capital, and Galkayo, another booming city. They will report their impressions and experiences to the refugees in Dadaab. “Much as we admire the communication system that exists among the Somali people from inside Somalia to every corner of the world, there is always a difference between receiving oral information and seeing it with your own eyes,” said Simone Wolken, UNHCR representative for Somalia. “UNHCR wants refugees to make truly informed decisions,” Ms. Wolken added. “They need to know what to expect and how to prepare while still in exile. Meeting the people in Puntland will help the refugees to make a realistic decision” about whether to accept UNHCR’s offer of help to settle in Puntland.
From small talk at the water cooler to encounters with testy photocopiers, students embarking on co-op work-terms never quite know the situations they may experience in their new workplace.To help lessen stress and increase comfort heading into a new environment, Brock Dramatic Arts students recently visited their co-op peers to share some scenarios they may be faced with.Comprised primarily of Dramatic Arts students under the direction of Joe Norris, Dramatic Arts Chair and Professor of Drama in Education and Applied Theatre, Mirror Theatre spent time in three Co-op Education classes over the past few weeks to provide guidance and reassurance by acting out scenes in Sean O’Sullivan Theatre.Co-op students Daniel O’Leary, left, and Marsel Avdic, right, play tug of war with fourth-year Dramatic Arts student and Mirror Theatre member Sumer Seth during an ‘Awkward Elevator’ scene.The group write and present interactive scenes on a variety of social issues, with the latest art-based research project exploring the interpersonal dynamics of work placements from entry to exit.Using applied theatre, experiential and problem-based learning theories and techniques, the students present scenes that address worker safety, on-site learning, asking for help, dealing with unreasonable demands and degree of personal sharing and assessment. Audience members redirect the scenes from their seat and, at times, come on stage to try to act out their thoughts through role-play.The initiative was intended to generate discussion amongst the co-op students on a variety of work-related topics in the 0N90 class.Students were asked to put themselves in the actors’ shoes in order to understand how they would handle each of the given situations in real life.“I would recommend this type of interactive learning in future classes,” said second-year Public Health co-op student Micaela Snow following the exercise. “I feel like the presentation gave us a deeper understanding of expectations and work etiquette rather than if we just listened to the professor talking about it.”Julia Zhu, Brock’s Associate Director of Co-op Education, hoped the experience helped to “facilitate ‘a rehearsal for life’ by offering an opportunity for students to safely test out their approach to impromptu social, ethical and culture situations.”Course facilitator Ashley Haroutunian said she was impressed by the level of engagement students displayed as they watched the vignettes and participated in the discussions and re-enactments.“They demonstrated a keen ability to reflect and contribute thoughtful observations and suggestions to help the players navigate the challenging workplace scenarios and conflicts,” she said. “Professor Norris and his students did an excellent job of supporting their learning by inviting, encouraging and involving students in the process.”Mirror Theatre has previously worked with Brock’s English as a Second Language Services in addressing academic integrity issues; Student Health, examining mental health and drinking issues; Health and Safety, discussing violence in the workplace; a Health Sciences class, articulating challenges of patient care; and the Centre for Pedagogical Innovation’s TA training sessions. The group’s members are heading to New York in April to present their arts-based research at the American Educational Research Association. Mirror Theatre members who participated in the recent co-op exercises include fourth-year Con-Ed Dramatic Arts students Mike Metz and Lindsey Abrams, third-year Psychology and Dramatic Arts student Nadia Ganesh, fourth-year Dramatic Arts and Education student Aaron Drake, fourth-year Con-Ed student Abby Rollo, second-year Con-Ed Dramatic Arts student Dani Shae Barkley, fourth-year Dramatic Arts student Sumer Seth and first-year Dramatic Arts student Dawson Strangway.
Fake designer goods worth £8 million have been seized in police raids.Counterfeit clothes, sunglasses, jewellery and perfume were recovered as homes, businesses and storage units in the Strangeways area of Manchester were targeted on Tuesday and Thursday. Detective Inspector Paul Walker said: “These raids are a great example of successful partnership working investigating the counterfeit world.”The raids took place following intelligence from our partners and send out the clear message that fakes are illegal and will not be tolerated by the police.”People often see selling knock-offs as a victimless crime but buying these goods helps to line the pockets of criminals which can often fund more sinister crimes.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Une nouvelle technique pour détecter le mensongeDes chercheurs de deux universités britanniques ont mis au point un nouveau procédé capable d’établir si une personne ment par une simple analyse de son visage lorsqu’elle parle. Cette technique a réussi à discerner la vérité du mensonge dans deux tiers des cas. Même si votre nez ne s’allonge pas comme celui de Pinocchio on pourra savoir si vous êtes en train de mentir ou d’affirmer la vérité. Et cela grâce à un nouveau système mis au point par le Pr Hassan Ugail et son équipe des universités britanniques de Bradford et Aberystwyth. Créé en collaboration avec les services frontaliers du Royaume-Uni, le procédé en question est en fait capable de déterminer si une personne ment simplement en analysant son visage. Pour cela, il est constitué de trois éléments de mesures : une caméra vidéo, un capteur photographique thermique haute résolution et un programme à base d’algorithmes. Mais plusieurs années ont été nécessaires pour que le procédé fonctionne réellement. Des années de recherche pendant lesquelles les scientifiques ont observé comment l’humain révèle bien malgré lui (inconsciemment comme involontairement), certaines informations. Comment ? Par de subtils changements d’expression du visage, mais aussi à l’aide de la circulation du sang sous la peau, explique Radio canada. Une physique des émotionsOutre ces deux facteurs, de nombreux autres indices ont été pris en compte : les mouvements oculaires, la dilatation des pupilles, le comportement de la langue, de la mâchoire et des lèvres, les rides du nez, la respiration, la déglutition ou encore l’asymétrie faciale. Ainsi, au cours des tests, ce procédé est parvenu à discerner la vérité du mensonge dans deux tiers des cas mais jusqu’à présent, il n’a été testé que sur des volontaires. À lire aussiQu’arrive-t-il au visage humain face à un vent de 735 km/h ? Démonstration !Au cours de cette année, les chercheurs ont donc prévu d’installer quelques prototypes dans certains aéroports afin d’être utilisés lors d’entrevues liées à la sécurité. “Dans une situation de stress, nous allons pouvoir augmenter le taux de succès de notre invention “, explique ainsi le Pr Ugail qui espère avec son équipe obtenir un taux de réussite de plus de 90 %, soit une performance similaire au polygraphe créé en 1921 et sur lequel se basent tous les détecteurs de mensonge. Néanmoins, ses inventeurs sont bien conscients que le test ne sera jamais parfait, et qu’ils n’obtiendront jamais un taux de 100 %. “Les instruments détectent des émotions, comme la peur, la détresse ou la méfiance, mais pas l’acte de mentir en tant que tel”, explique le Pr Ugail. En fait, c’est donc plutôt la peur et les autres émotions qui sont parfois associées à la crainte de ne pas être cru (plus qu’à celle d’être démasqué) qui sont détectées.

‘Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans’ Trailer Doesn’t Anger Me’Space Ghost Coast to Coast’ Is Still Influential and Funny Licensed property comic books are interesting. Many feel as if they exist solely as another means of promoting the source material, but BOOM! has been on a roll with them. Adventure Time, Power Rangers, and Steven Universe are just a few of the properties they’re publishing, and every series has been wonderful. Each book has managed to really capture the heart and spirit of its source, while also bringing something different and fresh to them. Regular Show is no different. And for the past 40 issues (over three years), it has been a great comic for both fans of the Cartoon Network show and anyone who loves light-hearted outrageous fiction.The 40th and final issue, written by Mad Rupert and drawn by Laura Powell, wraps up the “Apocalypse Benson” arc that began back in issue #37. Having the final arc of the comic series focus on Benson seemed like a weird choice to me, but then again there is only so much that the comic can do with Mordecai and Rigby. While this arc has been really enjoyable up until this point, the finale serves as a really great character piece for Benson, a character they clearly have a lot of affection for. It was surprising to see so much done with him, as he rarely gets time in the spotlight.Laura Powell’s art, and Lisa Moore’s colors, really make this book feel like the show. The characters all look spot on, and it has that perfect amount of animated energy. The script reads just like the characters’ voices, playing out in my head as if I was watching the cartoon. This isn’t easy to do, but this comic has a great understanding of the characters and their perspectives. Regular Show is a very formulaic series, so it is important to get the characters right.The back-up feature, by Christine Larsen, also focuses on Benson. On vacation and fishing by himself, he winds up in way over his head as he finds himself on an adventure with Norse gods. It is the perfect breather story after the final arc stretched several issues. Cute, simple and exciting, it compliments the Benson-centric main story. The gumball machine man is a curmudgeon with a heart of gold, who just wants to live quiet life, but constantly getting wrapped up in other people’s messes. Again, this story arc, and especially this issue, has such an affinity for him.With the Regular Show cartoon having recently announced they will be ending after its eighth season (which began airing this past month), it is no wonder that the comic had to come to an end as well. It’s going out on a weird and unexpectedly high note, focusing on a forgotten and underutilized character. But in the end, it is more about Benson’s relationship with the park, and how the park brings everyone together. This frames it all in a new way, proving Benson was in fact the heart of the book. It’s an intriguing way to look at the character and a really strong way to finish the series. The final issue Regular Show #40, is available to download at Comixology and in your local comic shop today. Stay on target
Well the “secret” is finally out. Not too long ago Respawn Entertainment apparently had a bunch of influencers play its new game, a battle royale called Apex Legends set in the developer’s Titanfall universe. Details promptly began to leak like the game’s free-to-play model, its lack of the mechs that give Titanfall its character in the first place, and the game’s forthcoming reveal this very Monday.And it was all true! Apex Legends is real and you can see it for yourself right here. Or play it right now.After a very long teaser stream showing off the empty map players battle it out on, we finally saw it. Respawn fully revealed Apex Legends and how hopefully its new hero abilities wedded to the sheer joy of Titanfall’s on-foot first-person shooter combat and mobility will help this multiplayer fight to the death stand out even if there aren’t giant robots in it. For the subset of Titanfall fans who don’t even like the robots this must be music to their weird ears.But yes Apex Legends is a battle royale, so it’s about players competing to be the last ones standing in a genre everyone seems to love except me, from Fortnite children to Call of Duty fans to Red Dead Online cowboys to PUBG veterans. And given Titanfall’s history of critical acclaim but soft sales, pivoting it to the most popular, most streamable type of game out there right now seems smart for Respawn, now fully owned by EA. The free-to-play models expands its potential reach even more, although Respawn promises payments are for cosmetics only.How does it look though? Despite the Titanfall connection (Apex Predators are a mercenary faction in previous games and this bloodsport is a hobby of theirs) Apex Legends looks more like a battle royale take on Overwatch. Instead of generic soldiers, players control specific legendary characters with colorful personalities and unique weaponry, but no wall-running?There’s a cheery robot with a grappling hook and a lady who phases between dimensions. One guy uses hologram projections while another wears one of those dope plague doctor masks. Players also apparently have to play in squads, so picking characters with complementary skills and a leader who can land in prime loot territory is part of the strategy. These characters are so important that there are even methods, however risky, for reviving them in the middle of the battle even after death.Although there’s nothing stopping us from playing it right now on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, there are still questions to be asked about Apex Legends. Can it co-exist with EA’s other big multiplayer shooter out soon Anthem? Will we ever get an actual Titanfall 3 after Respawn wraps up the one EA Star Wars game still alive? And does all this Apex Legends news just make you want to play Titanfall 2 again, too? That game was great! Its endlessly creative campaign was a Game of the Year all on its own. More people should’ve played it. There’s still time. Sorry, You Can’t Date Keanu Reeves in ‘Cyberpunk 2077”Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form Stay on target
SEATTLE — Until now, it’s all been talk. Starting Tuesday, health care reform will move from speculation to reality when insurance exchanges in Washington state and across the nation open for business.People without health insurance or those who buy insurance as an individual will find out how much the Affordable Care Act will add, or subtract, to their cost of living in 2014. And everyone who plans to engage the new system is about to discover if it’s harder or easier than filing federal income taxes to purchase health insurance through the new marketplace.Some like Seattle entrepreneur Aaron Brethorst expect to pay more for health insurance. Brethorst, 31, has been buying catastrophic insurance — with a high deductible for health emergencies — and his new insurance will be more comprehensive but also more expensive.Young adults will have an option of a catastrophic plan that covers prevention, some primary care and would have a high deductible kick in in case of a major illness or accident.Some Washington residents are about to get a happy surprise. About 325,000 more people in the state will find they are eligible for Medicaid. New state rules set the bar for free health insurance at 138 percent of the federal poverty level as of Jan. 1, which equals an income of just over $15,000 for an individual.
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (File photo from 2016 video/Murkowski’s office.)Two U.S. House committees are due to take up the new Republican health care bill Wednesday, to replace the Affordable Care Act. When the bill gets to the Senate, Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, could turn out to be a swing vote. She has said she’s willing to break with her party to keep Medicaid expansion and funding for Planned Parenthood. But Murkowski isn’t ready to say yet what she makes of the House bill.Listen nowIn the basement of the Capitol, a clot of reporters lay in wait for Sen. Murkowski. Everybody wanted to know what Murkowski thinks of the health care bill. But Murkowski was in a hurry to get on the underground train to get back to her office.A Washington Post reporter lobbed a question as she boarded: “Do you like this bill?”Murkowski played it coy: “I like the Senate resolution that we just passed. Hooray!”She knew no one was there to ask her about the resolution rescinding rules on BLM planning.“That’s not the bill,” the Post reporter said, as the train doors closed, leaving him behind.Truth is, Murkowski said she doesn’t have a lot of answers yet.“Believe it or not, I haven’t had a chance to actually read that bill. I have barely been in my office all day,” Murkowski said.From what little she has seen, Murkowski said the bill would “defund” Planned Parenthood (meaning it would block the organization from receiving reimbursement for Medicaid patients it treats) for a year. But Murkowski thought she saw more in her quick glance at the bill.“It made it appear it was not just to Planned Parenthood but ‘other entities’ … that provide for women’s health care. Well what does that mean? I have no idea. But I don’t like that,” Murkowski said. “So I have to look very, very critically at all of this.”The bill’s changes to Medicaid expansion aren’t easy to understand at a glance, either. Murkowski was among four Republican senators who signed a letter this week saying the draft bill didn’t seem to adequately protect the program. But the House sponsors changed the legislation, preserving Medicaid expansion until 2020. After that, the bill would freeze enrollment and the government would begin paying states per capita, based on how much they spent on the program last year. The New York Times reports Alaska would fare better than most other states.In Anchorage, Northrim Benefits Group President Joshua Weinstein advises employers on health care matters. He’s learned enough about the bill to form at least one conclusion: “This legislation is much kinder to employers than it is to individuals who are purchasing health insurance on the marketplace, or are getting Medicaid.”The bill does away with a lot of documentation requirements for employers. Companies would no longer have to provide insurance if they have 50 or more workers, and Weinstein said, it delays the so-called “Cadillac tax” on expensive plans, until 2025.“This tax would have penalized the great majority of Alaskan employers that provide health insurance because the tax is based on the cost of health care, in short,” Weinstein said. “So that’s a relief to see in the legislation.”But, Weinstein said for individuals who buy their own insurance, the bill provides tax credits that aren’t as generous as the subsidies that are now offered to eligible Alaskans on healthcare.gov.Murkowski said she’s waiting for feedback from the Alaskans she’s been working with on health care, like the state insurance division director, providers, and leaders in the Native health care system.Sen. Dan Sullivan said his not ready to discuss the health care bill either. He prides himself on reading bills in their entirety.Alaska Congressman Don Young said in a written statement he’s still reviewing the bill, but he said the current system is “broken” and, “doing nothing would be entirely irresponsible.”
Logo of BNPThe opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party standing committee members at a meeting on Friday took opinions of the party’s senior and mid-level leaders to work out its next course of action.The nearly two-and-a-half-hour meeting that began around 4:20pm was held at the BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office in the capital.Apart from the party standing committee members, its vice chairmen, chairperson’s advisers, joint secretaries general, organising secretaries and secretaries on different affairs joined the meeting.Talking to reporters after the meeting, party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said they discussed the country’s current political situation and took opinions of their leaders about the party’s future course of action.”We’ve elaborately discussed what our party and the democratic forces should do for the restoration of democracy,” he said.The BNP leader said the issue of their chairperson Khaleda Zia’s illness and her release from jail got the great importance at their discussion at the meeting.Besides, he said, they talked about the Gazipur and Khulna city polls billed for May 15.BNP standing committee members Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, Moudud Ahmed, Rafiqul Islam Miah, Mirza Abbas, Dr Abdul Moyeen Khan, Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury and Fakhrul were, among others, present.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un takes part in the 4th Plenary Meeting of the 7th Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) in Pyongyang in this 10 April photo released on 11 April by North Korea’s Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). Photo: ReutersNorth Korean leader Kim Jong Un said the breakdown in talks with the United States has raised the risks of reviving tensions, and he is only interested in meeting president Donald Trump again if the United States comes with the right attitude, state media KCNA said on Saturday.Kim said that he will wait “until the end of this year” for the United States to decide to be more flexible, according to KCNA.“What is needed is for the US to stop its current way of calculation, and come to us with a new calculation,” Kim said in a speech to the Supreme People’s Assembly on Friday, KCNA said.Trump and Kim have met twice, in Hanoi in February and Singapore in June, building goodwill but failing to agree on a deal to lift sanctions in exchange for North Korea abandoning its nuclear and missile programs.Trump said on Thursday he is open to meeting Kim again, but in his speech on Friday, the North Korean leader said the outcome in Hanoi led him to question the strategy he embraced last year of international engagement and talks with the United States.The Hanoi summit “raised strong questions about whether the steps we took under our strategic decision were right, and gave us a sense of caution about whether the US is even really trying to improve the DPRK-US relationship,” Kim said, using the initials of North Korea’s full name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.In Hanoi, the United States came with “completely unrealisable plans” and was “not really ready to sit with us face-to-face and solve the problem,” Kim said.“By that sort of thinking, the US will not be able to move us one iota even if they sat with us a hundred, thousand times, and will not be able to get what it wants at all,” he said.“I will be patient and wait until the end of this year for America’s courageous decision, but it will be hard to get as good a chance as last time,” Kim added.Kim’s comments signal he won’t cling to talks with the United States forever, said Kim Dong-yup of Kyungnam University’s Institute for Far Eastern Studies in South Korea.“That probably indicates that the North is triggering plans to diversify its diplomatic relations with other countries,” he said.Third Summit in DoubtKim said that his personal relationship with Trump is still good, but that he had no interest in a third summit if it were a repeat of Hanoi.At a meeting with South Korean president Moon in Washington on Thursday, Trump expressed a willingness for a third summit with Kim but said that Washington would leave sanctions in place on Pyongyang.Kim said US leaders “mistakenly believe that if they pressure us to the maximum, they can subdue us.” The current US policy of sanctions and pressure is “like trying to put out a fire with oil,” he added.Still, Kim said he would not hesitate to sign an agreement if it takes into account both countries’ considerations.The United States had continued to provoke North Korea by testing an anti-ballistic missile system and conducting military drills with South Korea despite Trump’s announcement that large-scale exercises would end, he said.Last month, a senior North Korean official warned that Kim might rethink a moratorium on missile launches and nuclear tests in place since 2017 unless Washington makes concessions such as easing sanctions.South Korea’s Blue House said in a statement that officials would “do what we can in order to maintain the current momentum for dialogue and help negotiations between the US and North Korea resume at an early date.”Kim complained that Washington is coercing South Korea into abiding by sanctions and not pushing forward with inter-Korea projects.North Korea has a choice “to continue to improve inter-Korean relations to relieve pressure on the Korean peninsula or to go back to the past when things collapsed amid increasing risks of war,” he said.Still, North Korea is committed to better North-South relations and peaceful unification, Kim said.“I would like to make it clear that it is my unwavering determination to make a new history of peace and prosperity,” he said.
