40 New Agreements Between Russia and China on Energy, Banking, Transport, Agriculture

.

It's no longer just about energy. Russia and China are working together on everything from defense to finance
.
By RIA Novosti - Russian News Agency and Russia Insider 
.
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to China in May 2014 marked the beginning of several major investment projects and the launch of a number of cooperation agreements between the two countries.
.
In October 2014, some 40 agreements on energy, banking, transport, agriculture, space technology and telecommunications were signed during Chinese Premier Li Keqiang’s visit to Moscow.
.
ENERGY DEALS
.
In May 2014, during Vladimir Putin’s visit to China, the two countries signed their biggest gas contract ever, with Gazprom agreeing to supply 38 billion cubic meters of gas per year for the next 30 years. The contract is worth a total of roughly $400 billion.
.
The total amount to be delivered over the agreed period would exceed more than 1 trillion cubic meters. Investments in gas extraction and transportation infrastructure in Russia alone will be worth $55 billion.
.
Russian state Corporation Rosatom is currently in talks with the Chinese side over the construction of nuclear power units on the mainland. In addition, during Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to China, a memorandum of understanding was signed between Russia and China on the possible construction of floating nuclear power plants.
.
Russia's largest independent gas producer Novatek has signed a contract with China's CNPC to supply 3 million tons of LNG (liquefied natural gas) per year for 20 years as part of the Yamal LNG project. The price of LNG will be determined by a formula, linked to the JCC oil index.
.
Vnesheconombank, Gazprombank, Yamal LNG and the China Development Bank signed a memorandum on organizing project financing. According to the document, the parties will endeavor to launch project financing in the fourth quarter of 2014 on the most favorable terms.
.
Russia and China have also decided to establish a joint venture for the production of LNG.
The Chairman of Rosneft, Igor Sechin and CNPC Deputy Chairman Wang Dongjin signed an agreement to launch an oil refinery in Tianjin, China in late 2019. Rosneft will be the sole supplier for the refinery. The plant's capacity will be 16 million tons. Investments in the construction were previously estimated at about $5 billion. In the second phase, a chain of gas stations will be established in China, operating under the name of Rosneft and CNPC.
.
Rosneft and CNPC signed an agreement in October on strategic cooperation. Rosneft and ExxonMobil intend to implement the Far East LNG project, which is planned to be included in the Sakhalin-1 project. Gas supply to the plant is planned to be from the Sakhalin-1 – North Chaivo and North Veninsky fields. The total resource base is 584.4 billion cubic meters of gas. Based on proven reserves, the design capacity of the first stage of the LNG plant has been defined as 5 million tons per year. The plant’s first production line is scheduled to be launched in 2018-2019.
.
The RusHydro energy holding company signed a strategic cooperation agreement in May with the Chinese company PowerChina. Under the agreement, the company will consider the possibility of PowerChina participation in a program to develop RusHydro small hydropower. One of the formats of cooperation could be a joint venture, and the parties agreed to consider establishing one. RusHydro subsidiary of RAO Energeticheskiye Systemy Vostoka (Energy Systems of the East) signed an agreement with Dongfang Electric International Corporation on cooperation on the implementation of joint projects in the Russian Far East.
.
OAO Rossiiskiye Seti (Russian Grids) and State Grid Corporation of China signed an agreement on strategic cooperation in May. The parties plan to focus on exploring the possibility of the construction of Euro-Asian energy bridge and set up the delivery of electricity from Russia to China. For this purpose, energy companies have agreed to jointly explore the possibility of building ultrahigh voltage AC and DC transmission lines, as well as underground EHV substations in the Russian Federation.
.
A working group has been formed to organize the joint venture (JV) for the implementation of projects to modernize and construct transmission facilities in both Russia and other countries.
.
LOGISTICS
.
Russian Railways and the Chinese state railway operator China Railway Corporation have agreed on strategic cooperation in the development of infrastructure and operations. The companies plan to develop rail border crossings and rail infrastructure on border approaches to increase the capacity of the railways, as well as increasing the volume of international traffic between the countries and transit through their territories.
.
In addition, both parties intend to optimize the conditions and technology of container traffic, including the organization of regular container trains.
.
The Russian government signed a memorandum of cooperation on a high-speed railroad in October 2014 between the Russian Transport Ministry, Russian Railways, the State Committee of China's state development and reform committee and the China Railway Corporation. The purpose of the document is to develop a Moscow-Beijing Eurasian high-speed rail transport corridor, including the priority project of a Moscow-Kazan high-speed rail line.
.
The total cost of the Moscow-Kazan high-speed rail project is estimated at 1.068 trillion rubles (approximately $26.2 billion).
.
On October 14th, Mikhail Pogosyan, president of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), and Jin Tianlun, chairman of the Chinese corporation COMAC signed a memorandum on cooperation on a long-term program of long-range wide-body passenger aircraft.
.
According to Pogosyan, the new aircraft can take up to 10% of the world market for wide-body long-haul aircraft. The project will require roughly $10 billion in investments.
.
Chinese automaker Chery Automobile announced the start of production of its cars in Russia in July with up to 30,000 units per year at the Derveis plant in Karachay-Cherkessia. The company has invested several tens of millions of dollars in the project – the money was allocated for the purchase of welding equipment. Production should reach full capacity in about a year and a half. The company also intends to set up a Research and Development center in Russia, which in the first stage will be to adapt models for the local market.
.
China's largest SUV maker Great Wall Motors (GWM) started construction of a $500 million car plant in the Tula Region with output of up to 150,000 vehicles per year. GWM will set up the full cycle of production of Hover brand in the region, including the manufacture of engines and transmissions. The plant opening is scheduled for 2017. Full completion of the project is planned in 2020.
.
FINANCIAL SECTOR
.
VTB, VEB and the Russian Agricultural Bank, which were targeted by Western sanctions, reported a number of agreements in October with the Export-Import Bank of China (Eximbank) amounting to at least $ 4billion. In particular, the second largest Russian bank, VTB, reported that China Exim Bank will provide it with a line of credit in yuan or the ruble equivalent of up to $2 billion to finance the import of a wide range of products from China, ranging from food products and ending with high-tech equipment. China Exim Bank will provide a credit line of $2 billion for projects in the Far East and Siberia. The Russian Agricultural Bank, in turn, signed an agreement with China Exim Bank to provide trade finance. In addition, Russian Standard Bank, which is among the top 30 Russian banks, has begun issuing bank cards using the Chinese payment system UnionPay.
.
The Central Banks of Russia and China signed a three-year agreement on exchange operations (currency swap) of 150 billion yuan (approximately $24.5 billion). According to the Russian regulator, the agreement will promote the development of bilateral economic relations and the greater use of rubles and yuan in trade and investment.
.
DEFENSE
.
Russian defense companies are negotiating to supply China with S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems and manufacturing the heavy Mi-26 helicopter, with a carrying capacity of up to 15 tons, in China.

Alexander Mercouris: Deadlock and Gas Talks in Milan

Dear friends,

It is a huge pleasure to announce today, specifically in response to the request of many of you, Alexander Mercouris has agreed to send me his his FaceBook analytical posts for posting here.  I have a huge respect for Alexander and I am delighted to welcome him here as a regular contributor.

Deadlock and Gas Talks in Milan

by Alexander Mercouris
 

.
News from the Milan summit is still trickling through but it is clear that there has been no breakthrough and the Ukrainian crisis remains deadlocked. Poroshenko said that the "parameters" of a gas agreement have been agreed but it seems that nothing of the sort has happened.

The most fatuous comment of the day has come from van Rompuy, who called it "progress" because Putin is supposed to have said that he does not want a frozen conflict in Ukraine or for eastern Ukraine to become another Transdniestria. To see the absurdity of that comment just try to imagine Putin solemnly telling the Europeans the opposite: that he does want a frozen conflict in Ukraine and that he does want eastern Ukraine to become another Transdniestria!

Not for the first time Putin comes over as a man surrounded by dwarfs.

As I understand it the idea of a breakfast meeting between Putin and European leaders came from Merkel. With the German and European economies tanking in part because of the very sanctions policy she has imposed, Merkel needs this crisis to end. At the same time she remains utterly unwilling to take on the US and its European allies or the Atlanticists within Germany. She therefore looks to Putin to extricate her from the mess she has got herself into. However because she is not prepared to face up to the US and its allies or the Atlanticists she wants Putin to get her out of trouble by capitulating to all their demands. She tries to do this by applying "pressure" on Putin (that was what today's breakfast meeting was all about) and then looks sullenly angry and baffled when it doesn't work.

Accustomed to bullying other European leaders and getting her way, it's as if Merkel, when faced by an adversary her own size, doesn't know what to do. She reminds me of Obama who came away similarly baffled and angry after facing off with Putin two years ago at a summit when they discussed the Syrian crisis.

Meanwhile as the European and German economy tanks the Russian economy accelerates despite the falling oil price whilst the Ukraine's disintegration gathers pace. In politics and diplomacy as in war it is necessary to know when to retreat before the situation becomes a total rout. The Europeans show no such ability or understanding so we are looking at a rout.

The Gas Talks in Milan

More information is trickling out about the gas talks in Milan and they make for an ugly picture.

Ever since June the Russians have been saying that the contractual price of gas supplied to the Ukraine is $485/1000 but that they are prepared to offer on a temporary basis a $100/1000 discount, bringing the price of gas supplied to the Ukraine this winter down to $385/1000, on condition that Ukraine pays its outstanding arrears and prepays for all gas actually supplied.

The Russians have never wavered from this position. The Ukrainians have never wavered from rejecting it.

As I understand it the Ukrainian position is that the "proper" price for Russian gas is the $269/1000 Yanukovitch achieved through the discounts he negotiated with Putin last December. The Ukrainians insist that all gas arrears should be recalculated on the basis of this price and that only when that happens will they consider paying them. In the interim, under European pressure, they have said they would agree to pay a higher price on a temporary basis (apparently $320/1000) until the dispute is settled. However they insist that any payments they make during the period of this price should be treated as payment for gas supplied according to this price and not payment of arrears.

I am not going to discuss here in any detail the absurdity of the Ukrainian position, which treats a discounted price offered to Yanukovitch in return for conditions the Ukraine never fulfilled, as the "proper" price in substitution for the agreed contractual price. I don't think anyone apart from the Ukrainians believes in it. Certainly the Europeans don't.

Anyway, returning to what happened in Milan, one of the great mysteries for me about Ukrainian politicians is that though in public they compete with each other in being tough on Russia, the moment they actually have to deal with Putin face to face over gas issues they come immediately apart and turn out to be spectacularly bad negotiators. We saw this happen with Tymoshenko in 2009 and we have just seen it happen again with Poroshenko in Milan.

Briefly, earlier in the day Poroshenko said that the "parameters" of a gas deal with Russia had been agreed. This led to a brief flurry of hopeful claims and headlines including a statement from Hollande that the two sides had almost bridged their differences.

It then turned out as the day progressed that the "parameters" Poroshenko was saying had been agreed with Russia were the same as the original Russian offer. In other words Poroshenko capitulated, perhaps without understanding, to what Putin asked of him.

Putin even said that the only remaining outstanding issue was how the Ukraine would find the money to discharge the obligations it had just taken on. His suggestions amount to a proposal that the Europeans pay for the Ukraine's gas and arrears either directly or via a further IMF loan. This is something the Europeans by the way have always refused to do.

Anyway, when it finally seems to have dawned on Poroshenko that the "parameters" he had agreed to were simply what the Russians have been demanding all along, his response was to flounce out of what looks like a hurriedly arranged meeting with Putin to announce that there had been no agreement after all.

Putin for his part stuck to the Russian position and publicly declared that Russia would not supply the Ukraine with gas on credit (which is what the Ukrainian counter proposals amount to) and that "that was final".

It appears therefore that we have deadlock with no actual progress made despite some of the earlier headlines that appeared during the day. Along the way Poroshenko has been made to look a fool in front of all the leaders of Europe and Asia and the gas talks on 21st October 2014 have just been made more difficult.

Putin said just before he went to Milan that Russia would reduce the amount of gas pumped through the Ukraine if the Ukraine starts stealing gas destined for other customers. That is what Russia did in 2009 and I have no doubt it is what it will do again. Unless the Europeans now give Poroshenko an ultimatum to accept the Russian offer a total cut off looms.

A re-run of the financial Cold War

.
.
.
.
American economic advisers, and Milton Friedman attached to the debauched Yeltsin junta..1991--2000 in Moscow destroyed the post Soviet Russian economy......reducing the economy by 50% and resulting in the death of 10 million Russians from the privations of hunger, dislocation and poverty.

200,000 Industrial enterprises were sold off to well connected Mafia Oligarchs with no business acumen. Who then went on to asset strip and destroy the enterprises, with the loss of millions of jobs.

Then capital flight took place into London, Switzerland, Cyprus and Israel. $2 trillion $4 trillion??????????

The vengeful lust of the USA against Russia has not abated, and this has manifested itself yet again by the imposition of a Jewish Nazi regime in Ukraine, this year which strategically threatens Russia.

The Ukraine contains 40-50% ethnic Russian speakers.

Is Russia Trying To Crash The American Stock Market?

by ZenVortex and the vineyard of the Saker

It appears that Russia, probably in collaboration with China, is retaliating against sanctions and oil price manipulation by trying to disrupt the Anglo/Zionist money markets and crash the American stock market. If successful, the strategy will produce an economic decline in the USA and Europe similar to that which followed the collapse of the American housing market in 2008.

Last week saw a major increase in volatility in the financial markets. The outstanding event was a single massive trade of $3/4 Billion that caused a flash crash of the SP 500 futures market. Similar flash crashes have occurred in the Australian dollar (and probably other Anglo/Zionist currencies) during the last 6 months and are caused by single massive trades that cause an explosion of volatility. This is not High Frequency Trading, but single massive orders hitting the market like tactical nuclear weapons.

The massive trades in the Australian dollar have usually coincided with the opening of the Shanghai stock exchange, which suggests that the Chinese government is involved. A typical crash lasts about one second and can cause extreme losses for investors who are in the market when it happens. The effect of these crashes is to dramatically amplify market volatility and cause investors to leave the market.

If the volatility continues ~ especially in the American stock market ~ it is likely to lead to a major crash as institutional investors dump their shares, followed by mass exodus by the general population as fear and panic set in.

It's interesting to note that the size of the Australian dollar trades was exactly 7,500 contracts @ $1,000 per contract = $75 million, and the SP 500 trade was 75,000 contracts @$1,000 per contract = $750 million (the SP 500 is a correspondingly bigger market). The numbers (7,500 and 75,000) reinforce the theory that these trades originated from the same source.

How To Create A No-Fly Zone Over Syria

.

Posted by Moon of Alabama 

.

So how does one get political momentum for the creation of a no-fly zone over Syria?
Easy.
.
Just claim that the current boogeyman is using planes and one is free to shoot ALL planes, especially Syrian government ones, out of the sky.
.
Islamic State training pilots to fly in three jets -Syria monitor
Iraqi pilots who have joined Islamic State in Syria are training members of the group to fly in three captured fighter jets, a group monitoring the war said on Friday, saying it was the first time that the militant group had taken to the air.
.
The group, which has seized land in Syria and Iraq, has been flying the planes over the captured al-Jarrah military airport east of Aleppo, said Rami Abdulrahman, who runs the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
.
Reuters was not immediately able to verify the report.
BTW - Who's secret service is funding this Rami Abdulrahman guy?
.
Afterthought: Isn't the threat of an Islamic State air force a good reason for Russia to finally deliver the ordered S-300 air defense system to Syria?

Sly old Fiona Woolf and the CSA cover-up

Fiona Woolf
If you thought for one minute that Theresa May and David Cameron are serious about investigating VIP child-abuse in this country it’s time to think again.
.
They slyly announced in September that Lord Mayor Fiona Woolf would be replacing Elizabeth Butler-Sloss as head of the CSA inquiry.
Slapper MayDave and TessPaedo Ring Number 10
That decision in itself was all the proof needed that a major establishment cover-up was on the cards.
.
Strangely, no-one has seen hide nor hair from Woolf since her appointment.
.
She has apparently been schlepping around the world dining on caviar and sipping champagne whilst CSA victims are struggling to survive.
.
Indeed, many traumatised victims have even tried to contact her via twitter but duplicitous old Woolfie didn’t even have the good manners to reply.
.
Not very mayoral-like behaviour is it?
.
http://aanirfan.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/fiona-woolf-and-child-sex.html
Woolf and Cameron
According to sources, she has now decided to drag herself out of hiding and attend a Commons committee meeting on 21st October.
.
The committee will be headed by Keith Vaz who is linked to Greville Janner and is up to his neck in filth of the highest order so please don’t expect anything other than light COSY banter and a cordial tête-à-tête.
.
Of course, what people may not realise is that Fiona Woolf is a top-ranking lawyer and close ally of the money-laundering bankers who operate from the City of London financial quarter.
.
She is allegedly related to Baron Harry Woolf, the former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales.
.
Harry Woolf was instrumental in denying a right of appeal for Barry George who was falsely imprisoned for 8 years for the murder of Crimewatch presenter, Jill Dando.
Justice WoolfJill Dando Daily Star Headline
His Wikipedia entry contains some most interesting facts:
.
” Woolf was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England, on 2 May 1933, to Alexander Susman Woolf and his wife Leah (née Cussins). His grandfather Harry was a naturalised Briton of Polish or Russian Jewish origins.”
.
”  He  went to Fettes College, an Edinburgh public school, where he mostly enjoyed his time and had supportive friends; however, being the only Jewish pupil he was teased and occasionally bullied”
.
” Woolf, an Ashkenazi Jew, first met his wife Marguerite Sassoon, a Sephardi Jew, at a social event which was organised by a mutual friend at the National Liberal Club. “

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Woolf,_Baron_Woolf
.
By a strange coincidence, Mossad rent-boy, Tony Blair also attended Fettes, along with his very close chum Charlie Falconer:
Blair Cover UpTony Blair Miranda
” According to the Aangirfan website, Tony Blair attended a private boarding school called Fettes, in Edinburgh.
.
One of his teachers, Knox Cunningham, was involved in a high-level paedophile ring.
Blair, who liked to call himself Miranda, absolutely adored Cunningham.
.
By a strange coincidence, the Fettesgate Scandal of the early 90′s uncovered a “magic circle” of corruption and rent-boys allegations going to the very top of the Scottish Legal system.
.
” A group of gay judges and lawyers were conspiring to ensure soft treatment for homosexual criminals, or so went the rumour that spread through Edinburgh legal circles in the late 1980s.
.
The talk was of a “magic circle” reaching the highest levels of the Scottish legal system and the potential blackmail of judges by “rent boys”.
.
http://aanirfan.blogspot.co.uk/
.
Tony Blair went to school with political weirdo Charlie Falconer, who lives in Islington:
Falconer and Cherie Blair
” The friendship between Tony Blair and Charles Falconer goes back 30 years to when they were both at school in Scotland. But they have always made a curious pair.”
.
”  He and Blair first met as teenagers, in the latter’s room at Fettes”.
.
” Falconer’s Islington home was the venue for campaign meetings during Blair’s drive to become Labour leader, and shortly before the election.”
.
” Falconer is one of the least known members of the Blair circle. But his appointment to 14 ministerial committees last week as “the eyes and ears of the Prime Minister”, as one member of the Government put it, confirmed what everyone suspected. Lord Falconer, known affectionately at the Cabinet Office as “the man with his shirt hanging out”, is one of the most powerful and important men in Britain.”
.

.
In a curious twist, Fiona Woolf sits on a board of trustees with Charles Falconer:
.
http://companycheck.co.uk/company/03059479/RALEIGH-INTERNATIONAL-TRUST/directors-secretaries
.
Falconer also acts as a shady Mr Fix-It in the House of Lords along with Rothschild bumboy, Peter Mandelson.
.
It’s highly likely they know all about the VIP abuse ring which has been operating within the UK for decades and may have lots of important information for investigating officers.
.
Mandelson, Blair and Falconer were all neighbours of Margaret Oppenheimer Hodge who was implicated in the Islington care-home abuse rings.
Mandelson and HodgeHodge filthy cowJason Swift
Hodge knows all about covering up for her political chums sick predilections.
.
She is also personally responsible for bringing in disgusting changes to the Children’s Act which strengthened the power of social workers to steal children from loving families and throw them into abusive council-run homes.
.
By a bizarre coincidence, her nephew Philip Edmonds, was holidaying at the same resort with Madeleine McCann just before she disappeared:

Former top-tory, Leon Brittan, has long been suspected of being involved in the Elm Guest House boy-brothel scandal.

Despite this fact he has never been hauled in for questioning by the Met.

Quite incredibly, it has now emerged that Brittan and his wife are close work colleagues and personal friends of Fiona Woolf.
.
Talk about a bloody conflict of interests- it’s more like a full-scale war.

Another dubious peer is child-raping scum, Greville Janner.

Janner, who has a penchant for sodomising young lads in care homes, has conveniently developed dementia and can’t be quizzed about his crimes.

Janner was  nominated for his knighthood by Tony Blair and is absolutely adored by Times editor Danny Finkelstein.
.
The brother of Finkelstein runs the Jill Dando UCL Crime Institute along with her former co-presenter Nick Ross.

Nick Ross pretended to grieve for Jill but was actually party to the conspiracy to kill her because she was about to blow the lid on the paedophile-rings.

Ross recently said he’d watch child-porn given half the chance.
Nick Ross Jill Dando
He is married to the cousin of Esther Rantzen and is involved with both Crimestoppers and Childline which are front organisations used to filter out victims of VIP abuse and silence them.

In a macabre twist, the former editor of Crimewatch is Angela Neuberger.

The excellent Children Have Rights campaign group wrote the following article:

” Fiona Woolf is actively delaying the start of the child abuse inquiry


Whilst Irish and Jersey child abuse inquiry’s continue to sicken us with daily revelations disclosing stories of vile and systematic depravity, the aptly named ‘Westminster VIP paedophile inquiry’ has yet to even start.
.
Fiona Woolf, the chair of the UK inquiry into historic child abuse linked to several Westminster figures has not just stepped back from issuing a statement about her links to the former Tory home secretary Leon Brittan, but it has become quite clear she is actively delaying the start of the inquiry,for which may now not begin until next year.
.
The British government plans to strictly control the release of ‘establishment’ paedophile revelations over a period of several years in order to avoid mass civil unrest, according to a Westminster source.
.
It is further claimed that many cases will never be disclosed due to the severity of the offences that took place, and also the high profile status of those involved.
.
Even politicians such as Simon Danczuk and Tom Watson, who have pushed for transparency, are all too aware of the dangers that mass disclosure may bring.
.
A ‘total disclosure event’ would see citizens of the United Kingdom take to the streets in their hundreds of thousands, if not millions, as the extent of the crimes are revealed.
.
The offences include multiple child rape, child torture and the murder of children.
.
When the public accept that throughout the 70’s, 80’s, and into the 90’s, elected officials and other dignitaries in shocking numbers used their position and status to have sex with vulnerable children, a ‘critical mass mentality’ will have been achieved, and the state will not have the resources or the moral high ground available to quell societies anger
There is no sector of the ‘establishment’ that remains distant from the culture of paedophilia in and around the power bases of London. The royal family, government, security services, the police and the judiciary have all played their part in covering up a sickness that has plagued the country for decades.
.
The abuse of children by establishment paedophiles continues to this day, albeit on a lesser scale. The unaccountability of decades ago has been diluted by the information age.
.
Yet, powerful players in the corridors of power still have a vested interest in not only covering up the evil deeds of the past, but also indulging those who still engage in these heinous crimes.”
.
http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1scl39c
.
So you see is it any wonder Theresa and Dave wanted Fiona to head the CSA inquiry?
.
In their eyes she’s the ultimate establishment cover-up queen.
.
But a word of warning to the treacherous filth who rule this country from behind the scenes.
.
If you think the appointment of your tainted pal Fiona Woolf is going to prevent the whole truth about Britain’s dirty secrets being revealed you’re even more f*****g deluded than we thought.

Which path will Japan take?

.
.
.
.
I have tremendous respect for Japan, a nation with no natural resources and yet from the ashes of destruction from WWII has risen up like a great phoenix.

This has been done peacefully since 1945, without involvement in one single foreign aggression.

Japanese corporations rule the world and are household names.....they make great CARS, and there is other Japanese technology.

There are no dark sinister stories about Japan exploiting developing nations. Japan is boundless in its help towards developing nations, without a single political string.

Japan is the biggest investor in China.

Alas as with Germany, corrupting American influence still holds sway over the ruling elite, and the security structure of the country. Based on this fact, there seems at least superficially an unwarranted degree of hostility which has developed with China.....over a few lifeless worthless pieces of rocks in the Pacific.

The USA has a military base in Japan, and security pacts as a result of defeat in WWII, BUT one hopes this great country does not goose step towards hostility against a country which will soon become the natural world leader.

An Asian leader of the world will be good for everybody, including Japan.

Japan tool of US aggression in region: Analyst

By Presstv.com


A British academic says Japan is still controlled by the United States, with Tokyo acting as an agent of US aggression.
.
Rodney Shakespeare told Press TV in an interview Friday, “Japan should look at where its long-term interests are and its long-term interests are in having a peaceful relationship with China and Korea and not being a tool of American aggression.”
.
“Unfortunately Japan is still controlled by the USA and sees its duty to act as an agent of American aggression.”
.
A group of 110 Japanese parliamentarians on Friday paid homage to the Yasukuni Shrine, which honors some 2.5 million people who died in World War II and other conflicts.
.
The war shrine is controversial as former Japanese military leaders, including 14 top war criminals who orchestrated mass atrocities in China and other areas, are believed to be enshrined there.
The governments of China, South Korea and Taiwan have censured the Friday visit.
.
“The Chinese should be angry not once for the Japanese not repenting their atrocities of the past, but because behind this lack of repentance is the pushing of the USA increasingly going into a war stance in that region,” Shakespeare stated.
.
The United States and Japan are strengthening their security coordination in response to a perceived military expansion of China.
.
China’s Defense Ministry Spokesman Yang Yujun said in August that the United States is destabilizing the region by sending more troops, ships, and planes and strengthening its military alliances with regional partners.
 

Colonial Labour Laws need overhaul, and abolition

.
.
.
.
For a country with the largest number of bonded child labour in the world, and 3 million children in enforced mafia/police/state prostitution.......  the labour laws clearly don't work where they matter.


 Indian capitalism is savage, and the 25,000 odd labour laws irrelevant.



From my law school days, the basic axiom was if the law is worthless/unworkable, then get rid of it, and replace it.

In addition as the East India Company/British Raj destroyed Indian Industry (25% of the world in 1750).....they paradoxically at the same time introduced MORE LABOUR regulation and INDUSTRIAL regulation.

Thus Indian Industry through Imperial BABUDOM was hampered.

The so-called 'License Raj' was a natural post colonial expression of that, created by the witless Macauley brown Sahibs.

In such a hostile business environment the MFS (most favored sycophants) suddenly became oligarchical successes, under the Raj......TATA...Birla.



 India is a tough environment to do business FOR INDIANS.



 If Modi from pro-Business Gujjiland can sort this problem out, without half measures, then all is good and finally India in 10 years can take its respected place as a historical Industrial hub.

The value of Industrial production in India is about $1100 billion behind the USA...$3700 billion, and China at $8000 billion.

'25,000 laws don't protect 90% of the workforce'


The notion that more labour laws offer more labour protection deserves Mahatma Gandhi's 1942 quip to an offer from the British as "a post-dated cheque on a failing bank". India's 25,000+ labour laws don't protect 90% of our workers and have murdered formal job creation because entrepreneurs cannot comply with 100% of our labour laws without violating 10% of them.
   India needs fewer and simpler laws that are mercilessly enforced. It's been the unfortunate destiny of job creation to have labour law reform equated with hire and fi re. This policy immaturity represented an unwillingness to accept that there's a lot of regulatory cholesterol outside Chapter 5B of the Industrial Disputes Act. The labour law announcements of this week are bold, impactful and terrific because they focus on plumbing rather than poetry. Plumbing matters.
   India's 6.3 crore enterprises translate to 7,500 companies with a paidup capital of over Rs 10 crore. Only 12% of our labour force works in manufacturing (same as postindustrial US) and 100% of net job creation since 1991 has happened in informal jobs. Our labour laws breed informality and corruption while murdering manufacturing employment.
   A functioning labour laws and benefits portal with a unique number for employees and employers has many interesting applications of emerging technologies of social, mobile, analytics and cloud that'll revolutionize the mess by which 50% of EPFO accounts are orphan and most new ESI subscribers end their employment before they receive permanent cards.
   It'll enable better enforcement of laws. The revamped inspection regime discards the notion that employers are guilty until proven innocent; I can guarantee you this will reduce the marriage premium and wealth of labour inspectors (particularly those from EPFO and ESI). The new apprenticeship programme is overdue; if India had the same proportion of its labour force in apprenticeships as Germany we would have 15 million of them. We have 3 lakh. This new scheme wisely places learning-by-doing and learning-while-earning at the heart of repairing and preparing our youth for jobs because skills change young lives in a way that no subsidy can.
   The agenda is far from complete. We need competition for EPFO and ESI. We need to make EPF contribution voluntary. We need to consolidate our multiple labour laws into a few that make minimum wages, safety condition, benefits and leave non-negotiable and then enforce them without fear or favour.
    The truth in a former Chief, Labour Commission of India, saying he was "trying to enforce the enforceable" should be unacceptable. India has been a hostile habitat for entrepreneurship and labour laws have been an important part of this hostility. An employment contract that is marriage without divorce must change. But that time is not now. These changes are policymaking with real impact as the only real social security India can afford is job creation and skills. These are a wonderful down payment..

Western Sanctions Deepen Russian-Chinese Industry Ties

Western sanctions are accelerating the partnership between Russia and China, at US and European expense
.



Vasily Kashin at Russia Insider via the The Moscow Times
.

.
A significant number of the economic sanctions that the United States and European Union have imposed on Russia involve not just restrictions on exports of advanced and dual-use technologies, but also technology aimed at purely civilian use.
.
And, in contrast to restrictions on Russia's financial and energy sectors that are also painful for the West, the blockade on technology exports might remain in force for decades.
.
An example is the restrictions that the U.S. and Europe placed on military technology exports to China in 1989 in response to events on Tiananmen Square. Those restrictions remain in place today, even though the events that prompted them have receded into history and economic relations between the West and China have greatly improved during the intervening years.
.
The West has long enforced numerous informal restrictions on technology exports to Russia. Russian industries have often faced refusals when attempting to purchase highly complex U.S.-made industrial equipment that Washington willingly sells to its allies. But now the West has formalized those restrictions and will not cancel them in the foreseeable future.
.
That forces Russia to look for alternative suppliers of complex technological equipment, and China is the logical first choice.
.
Until recently, Chinese industry was best known for its ability to mass-produce technologically uncomplicated products, with the result that Russia preferred looking to Europe to source more technologically advanced goods.
.
Working with European industry also had several advantages: the mutual ties both sides had developed over a period of decades, Russia's geographic proximity to Europe's main industrial centers and Russians' knowledge of European languages and markets.
.
The Ukraine crisis has forced Russian companies to seriously consider working with Chinese industry. Both state-owned and private Russian industrial enterprises have begun searching for potential Chinese partners that could compensate for the negative consequences of breaking ties with Europe. The initial results are encouraging.
.
Undeniably, Chinese high technology still lags behind that of Europe and the U.S., but Chinese industry has nearly met or even surpassed Western levels of development in some specific areas. For example, the fastest supercomputer in the world is the Chinese Tianhe-2, and China has made significant progress in building high-speed rail links that are of great interest to Russia.
.
China has managed to bring its production of microelectronics hardware components much closer to Western levels and mastered the production of various types of modern industrial machines. China succeeded in modernizing its industry in large part due to the scale of the national economy, and because of the dominant role that the state has played in developing the machine-building industry.
.
Western companies, dependent on the growing Chinese market, were forced to adjust to the demands of the Chinese government's industrial policy. That created favorable conditions for the transfer of Western technology.
.
China's production of military technology very favorably complements Russia's. While Russia exports upward of $2 billion in military equipment to China annually, Beijing is strong in a number of specific areas where Moscow is particularly weak. For example, despite making some progress, Russia has yet to achieve serial production of its own strike drones and remains heavily reliant on European and Israeli partners for that equipment.
.
China, on the other hand, has begun the full-scale production and export of at least two types of reconnaissance and strike drones comparable to the U.S. MQ-1 Predator, made by General Atomics.
.
The Chinese analogue, the Pterodactyl I, is made by the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) and the China Aerospace Science & Industry Corp (CASIC), and although it might lag behind the Predator in some individual characteristics, the fact that a number of countries, including Saudi Arabia, have already purchased the Chinese drone attests to its high quality.
.
China's experience of military and technical cooperation with such countries as Turkey, Pakistan, Iran and Argentina shows that whatever shortcomings might exist in Chinese technology are more than compensated for by Beijing's open and businesslike approach.
.
For reasonable terms, China readily agrees to transfer technology and licenses for other countries to produce its most modern types of equipment, including air defense systems, radio location stations, tactical and anti-ship missiles, helicopters and combat aircraft. Russia might accelerate development of its own drones by cooperating with China.
.
Amphibious ships are an even better example of untapped potential. Both the Soviet Union and Russia paid too little attention to this technology, with the ultimate result that Moscow was forced to buy the French Mistral warships. At this point, prospects are very slim that France will ever deliver those ships to Russia.
.
However, China has long been successfully building its 071 series of modern helicopter-landing amphibious assault ships, and is developing its 081 universal amphibious assault ship as well. If the Mistral deal is canceled, Russia could use its refund and the significant know-how already gained from building the Mistral's stern on Russian territory to start building a new class of universal amphibious assault vessels in cooperation with China.
.
In the future, such joint Russian-Chinese products might find a market among developing countries.
.
The move toward a new level of industrial and military-technical cooperation between Russia and China has already begun. For example, Russian Technologies and federal space agency Roscosmos are already consulting with CASIC on the possibility of procuring electronic components for satellites.
.
Russian Technologies has also begun collaborating with China Electronics Technology Group Corp (CETC) to launch production for the civilian sector. Meanwhile, Russia's private businesses have stepped up their search for Chinese partners.
.
Russia's decision to establish closer industrial cooperation with China is not only a consequence of sanctions. Russian industry felt the need to pursue this path earlier, but the peculiarities of the Chinese market and the fact that Russia already had long-standing ties with Europe weakened its willingness to change.
.
The current crisis provides an opportunity for Russia to diversify its foreign economic relations. What's more, the new contacts with Asia will endure even after the current sanctions are lifted

Pirouetting Poroshenko and the Kiev Nutcracker Suite 
And Information Clearing House
.

Well, admittedly, Kiev’s president Petro Poroshenko, the former Candy King, is carrying a bit of excess bodyweight, but nevertheless his swivelling statements and actions of late show that his ability for pirouetting is as agile as the finest ballet dancer.


It’s a talent that the entire Western-backed coup regime in Kiev shares too. This troupe of demagogues and rogues is more than capable of executing the most outlandish claims and swirling contradictions, plus explosive spontaneous movements that can take the observer’s breath away.
.
The regime, together with its chief patron in Washington, claims to be committed to a full ceasefire in the eastern Donbass regions, yet this week again saw more civilian deaths from the indiscriminate shelling of residential areas in the city of Donetsk. One of the targets was a shopping centre.
.
On Monday, a self-defence militia spokesman for the breakaway Donetsk People’s Republic said: «The situation has not seen a substantial change and continues to remain intense. The ceasefire has been violated 17 times by the Ukrainian side [in one 24-hour period]. The neighbourhoods of Zaichenko and Oktyabr came under fire. Four residential buildings and a shop have been destroyed. Three people have died, with seven civilians being injured».
.
There were other reports of up to eight civilians killed from Kiev military shelling over the past weekend. That amounts to war crimes by the Western-backed regime, but neither Western governments or their media seem to have trouble on their consciences over those crimes.
.
The pirouetting Poroshenko doesn’t seem to have made his mind up on whether his military forces are at peace or at war, with Donbass separatists or with Moscow. Last weekend he made a televised national address in which he declared that he expected a full ceasefire «within days». This was after telling lawmakers in Washington last month that his country was fending off «Russian aggression» and needed more military equipment.
.
Recall, too, that Poroshenko promised to end the violence in eastern Ukraine «within a week» in his inauguration speech in June this year after his dubious presidential election. 
.
His erratic behaviour and words raise questions about his integrity, if not his sanity. It was after all Poroshenko who personally appealed to Russian President Vladimir Putin to help broker a ceasefire at the beginning of last month. That truce officially came into effect on September 5 in a deal cut in Minsk, Belarus, under the auspices of the Contact Group and the Organisation of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
.
Apart from Kiev’s ragtag military forces of regular troops and fascist paramilitary battalions not implementing the ceasefire, it also does not bode well that Poroshenko appeared to snub a top-level meeting last weekend of the Commonwealth of Independent States in Minsk. Nine heads of states were present at the summit, including Russia’s Vladimir Putin. It would have been an opportune occasion to shake hands in order to bolster the ceasefire in Ukraine, and even to give gratitude to Putin for his peace efforts, but Poroshenko declined. 
.
Meanwhile, the Kiev regime is this week seeking a replacement for its retiring defence minister Valeriy Heletei. Heletei is the third such defence minister to have lost his job since the Western-backed coup took place in Kiev on February 22. Last month, Heletei made the outlandish and reckless claim that Russia was planning to strike Ukraine with tactical nuclear weapons. Heletei’s abrupt departure no doubt marks the level of confusion among senior members in the Kiev regime about how to proceed with its Orwellian-named «anti-terror operation» in the Donbass regions, which it launched in April and which has since caused more than 3,700 deaths, mainly among civilians. 
.
Russia’s Investigative Committee has filed charges of war crimes against Heletei, among other regime figures, for his role in overseeing indiscriminate violence against the Russian ethnic populations of Donetsk and Luhansk. Maybe he is hoping that his retirement will dissuade future prosecution. 
.
Speaking of pirouettes, the CIA-installed Prime Minister in Kiev Arseniy Yatsenyuk is also a dab-hand at spinning with dizzying speed in tight circles. The former investment banker, whose pro-capitalist ideology is driving Ukraine towards IMF indenture, this week says that he expects his country to be salvaged by the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). Thanks to the Kiev regime’s relentless, criminal warmongering against the civilians of Donbass, Ukraine is teetering on bankruptcy and default. But that’s no problem for Yatsenyuk, whose supposed market principles, don’t prevent him from subsidising his country’s war-making with EBRD loans.
.
One of the outstanding problems with Kiev’s bankruptcy, caused in part by its belligerence towards Russia, is the impasse over its long overdue payment of gas bills to Russia. Talk about spinning on your toes.
.
In another pirouetting movement, this week Kiev’s energy minister Yuriy Prodan announced that his regime is not going to make any prepayments for gas deliveries. On September 26, the trilateral group of Russia, European Union and Kiev appeared to strike an agreement that Russia would resume supplies of natural gas to Ukraine on condition that the latter paid up $3.1 billion of its total $5.3 billion gas debt to Russia’s state-owned Gazprom by the end of this year. 
.
Russia and the EU also agreed a payment rate of $385 per 1,000 cubic metres of gas, which is the European average price. All would seem reasonable to any neutral observer. 
.
However, ahead of the next round of trilateral talks scheduled for October 21, the Kiev regime is suddenly saying that no prepayments will be made after all. «Prepayment contradicts the contract,» asserted Kiev minister Prodan. To which somebody should remind him that chronic nonpayment of $5.3 billion for already delivered gas is an even greater and more urgent contradiction of the contract.
.
Alexei Pushkov, chairman of Russia’s lower parliamentary house’s foreign affairs committee, described Kiev’s latest twist over the gas debacle as «absurd». He said: «Kiev is setting absurd conditions on gas [debt repayment] to us by demanding deliveries without advanced payment. No advanced payment means no payment. We’ve learned it well». 
.
Which makes one wonder where is this arrogant, delusional regime getting its lead from? As Russia’s foreign minister Sergei Lavrov noted this week, the European Union has continually indulged «the war party» in Kiev with diplomatic and economic pandering ever since it seized power illegally against the elected Ukrainian government in February.
.
And, of course, Washington is arguably the main indulgent patron encouraging the worst in Kiev’s irrationality and fecklessness.
.
Last week, US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland was visiting Kiev, in effect reassuring the regime of Washington’s protection no matter what provocative conduct it embarks on.
.
According to the US State Department, Nuland discussed «the economic prosperity of Ukraine, and issues like their access to gas, and their need to be well-supplied for the winter».
.
Note that the US is not reminding Kiev of its legal obligation to settle its outrageous gas debts with Russia. Oh no, the emphasis is on «access to gas» and the need «to be well-supplied for winter».
.
With this kind of fawning, the reactionary Kiev regime can only but continue to be more and more truculent in defiance of international norms and Russian diplomacy. 
.
A rude awakening is indeed needed for pirouetting Poroshenko and his regime troupe of Nutcracker Suite.
