Iran, Venezuela leaders seek ‘new world order’

In Uncategorized on October 22, 2010 at 7:52 am

The leaders of Iran and Venezuela hailed what they called their strong strategic relationship on Wednesday, saying they are united in efforts to establish a “new world order” that will eliminate Western dominance over global affairs.


Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and visiting Venezuelan counterpart, Hugo Chavez, watched as officials from both countries signed 11 agreements promoting cooperation in areas including oil, natural gas, textiles, trade and public housing.


Among the agreements, Venezuela’s state oil company Petroleos de Venezuela SA said the South American country was forming a joint shipping venture with Iran to aid in delivering Venezuelan crude oil to Europe and Asia. It said in a statement that the agreement for a joint venture also would help supply Iran “due to its limited refining capacity.”


Both presidents denounced U.S. “imperialism” and said their opponents will not be able to impede cooperation between Iran and Venezuela.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, left, shakes hands with his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez, during an official welcoming ceremony for him, in Tehran, Iran, Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2010.

Iran’s state TV quoted both Ahmadinejad and Chavez as calling their relationship a “strategic alliance” that would eliminate the current global order.


“Iran and Venezuela are united to establish a new world order based on humanity and justice,” Ahmadinejad said, repeating his predictions that those who today seek “world domination are on the verge of collapse.”


Chavez said this is a time of “great threats” that make its necessary to swiftly “consolidate strategic alliances in political, economic, technological, energy and social areas,” according to the state-run Venezuelan News Agency.


Details of the latest accords were not released, and Chavez said some agreements went beyond those put on paper. He said a Venezuelan delegation will soon travel to Iran to follow up on the agreements.


Iran has become the closest Middle East ally to Chavez’s government as the left-leaning leader has sought to build international alliances to counter what he sees as U.S. economic and political dominance.


“Imperialism has entered a decisive phase of decline and … is headed, like elephants, to its graveyard,” Chavez said, according to the Venezuelan state news agency.


Chavez has staunchly defended Iran’s nuclear energy program, siding with Tehran by insisting it is for peaceful uses and not for nuclear bombs.


U.S. officials have worried Iran may be using its civilian nuclear program as a cover to develop atomic weapons. Four rounds of U.N. sanctions, as well as broader severe U.S. and European Union sanctions have not persuaded Tehran to halt the program.


Chavez also has plans to develop a nuclear energy program in Venezuela and last week signed an agreement for Russia to help build a reactor.


Without mentioning the countries’ nuclear ambitions, Chavez said his government demands respect for Iran’s sovereignty and that “those who think they are most powerful and want to impose their will on the world respect Iran.”


Chavez’s trip to Iran was his ninth as president. Before coming to Tehran, he made stops in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. Later Wednesday, Chavez arrived in Syria, and is due to travel next to Libya and Portugal.


Iran and Venezuela both belong to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries. In recent years, the two oil-producing countries have also set up joint ventures to produce cars, tractors and bicycles in the South American country.

Australia police serve court order via Facebook

In Uncategorized on October 20, 2010 at 7:04 am

SYDNEY (AFP) – Australian police served a court order on an alleged cyber bully using the social networking site Facebook, officials said Wednesday, describing it as a national first.


Victoria police got court approval to use the site after attempts to serve the order in person, over the telephone or via the post failed.


The “prolific” Facebook user was accused of, among other things, using the site to harrass, bully and threaten another person, and police said they transcribed all the court documents and sent them to his Facebook inbox.


A video was also made of the order being read “as if the Respondent was being directly spoken to” and sent electronically to him.


“He stated that he understood the seriousness of the orders, having read … documents served via the social media website and agreed to comply, stating that he would delete his Facebook profile,” a police statement said.


“In this instance we were able to deliver justice through the same medium as the crime committed,” said leading senior constable Stuart Walton, the officer in charge of the investigation.


“Police will always pursue traditional means to enforce the law and to protect the community, but we won’t shy away from innovative methods to achieve positive outcomes either.”


In 2008 an Australian lawyer won the right to serve legal documents via Facebook, the same year a Sydney court allowed lawyers to serve rugby player Sonny Bill Williams with a subpoena via SMS text message.


Australia, with a population of 22.5 million, has almost nine million Facebook users.

Vietnam Farmers’ Union receives Gold Star Order


QĐND – Wednesday, October 13, 2010, 20:34 (GMT+7)

The Vietnam Farmers’ Union (VFU) received the Gold Star Order for the second time at a ceremony in Hanoi on October 13 for their 80th anniversary.


Attending the ceremony were former Party leader Le Kha Phieu, politburo member and member of the Central Party Committee’s Secretariat, Truong Tan Sang and State Vice President Nguyen Thi Doan.


Over the past 80 years, the VFU has renewed practical activities and called on farmers to join revolutionary movements for national liberalisation, construction and defence.


The Union has worked closely with socio-economic organisations to provide vocational training for farmers and helped them develop production models, which has contributed substantially to the economic restructuring of agriculture and rural development.


The “Studying and Following President Ho Chi Minh’s Moral Example” Campaign received a positive response from farmers throughout the country with the VFU’s assistance and proved effective.


VFU Chairman Nguyen Quoc Cuong said the Union will continue to intensify communication and educational activities to raise farmers’ awareness of the role and tasks of the Union as well as educate Vietnam’s peasant class in the cause of national industrialisation, modernisation and international economic integration.


It is essential for the Union to exert more efforts to overcome difficulties and challenges to build a politically and ideologically strong organisation, which involves capable and creative members, emphasised Cuong.


In his speech, Mr Sang praised the significant achievements the Union has recorded over the past 80 years and called on the Union to make greater contributions to developing a modern and efficient agricultural system thus helping improve farmers’ living standards.


Mr Sang underlined the need to introduce Party and State guidelines and policies to farmers and encourage them to carry out patriotic emulation movements effectively.

Commercial banks resist gov’t order to cut interest rates

Commercial banks resist gov’t order to cut interest rates


QĐND – Saturday, May 29, 2010, 20:52 (GMT+7)


The nation’s commercial banks are still struggling to comply with a Government order to cut lending interest rates to no more than 12 per cent per year in order to help businesses access credit.

But market pressures continue to push rates upward, and many bankers and banking experts told Viet Nam News that lower interest rates needed to be coupled with caps on deposit interest rates or lower input costs.


“Lowering borrowing costs will be an impossible mission for the system if some banks keep raising deposit interest rates,” said the deputy director of a Ha Noi-based bank who asked that his name be withheld.


“Some banks have no trouble with liquidity but they just keep raising deposit rates to maintain sustainable capital sources and stay competitive,” said Bao Viet Bank general director Phan Dao Vu.


“Deposit interest competition is getting fiercer, so lending interest can’t be cut right now,” said An Binh Bank deputy director Pham Quoc Thanh. “Banks need time to balance capital costs.”


Cutting borrowing in fact is believed to require a very great attempt, as about 80 per cent of the economy’s capital demand of the economy depends on credit institutions.


Some suggested that the State Bank of Viet Nam needed to use monetary policy to adjust the amount of currency in circulation. High interest rates implied credit demand was higher than the supply, suggesting that the State Bank should increase the cash supply.


In an interview with reporters on the sidelines of the National Assembly meeting this month, the vice chairman of the National Assembly’s Economics Committee, Vu Viet Ngoan, said, “A very important tool to help banks cut interest rates would be to loosen monetary policy and inject more money into the economy.”


However, an oversupply of currency could trigger inflation, economists note.


“Interest rate reductions should be achieved by applying economic measures other than administrative orders. The State Bank is doing very well,” Ngoan said.


Eximbank general director Truong Van Phuoc said that interest rates would continue to track both market signals and inflationary movements.


Credit grew by just 5.58 per cent between December and April, and just 1.73 per cent in April alone, against an official target for the year of 25 per cent.
