The Muslims in India are a diverse lot, and not a united single block

.
.
.
.
Of the 180 million Muslims in India, all come from a diverse background.

Most were converted by Sufism and guided by Mystic Pirs. The fanaticism that existed in sections of the Delhi Sultanate, Mughal military, and court did not exist within the majority of Muslims.

They consisted of Hindus converting to Islam...over whelming majority, since most Muslims look Indic. Save for beards and particular attire they pass as Indian to most foreigners..naturally.

Iranian immigrants and Central Asians settled.

A significant number of Afghans, primarily Pashtuns...with the settlement of entire Pashtun tribes in UP and MP.



 I fanticise that I have Afghan lineage..and indeed at an early age I was referred to as 'Kabli.'

There are Shia Muslims and Sunni Muslims (But very few if any belonging to the Wahabi Jewish sect from Saudi Arabia, where the Casino Brothel loving Princes impose a harsh form of Islam on every Saudi except themselves)



 There are North Indian Muslims and South Indian Muslims.

There are poor Muslims and well off Muslims.



 There are educated Muslims and uneducated Muslims.

Some Muslims yearn for the days of Shahenshah Akbar, Sher Shah and Khilji.....but many more live in the real world of a RISING India and all the opportunities it may bring to themselves and their community.

Sufi Meditation and Contemplation; Timeless Wisdom from Mughal India

But generally most Muslims in India are poor, with lower income levels than the national average....and I have been told lower income levels than the Harijans. The battering ram that is used in most riots for political or mafia purposes.(Maybe PM Modi knows more about this than me?)

ONE THING IS CLEAR, THE 180 MILLION MUSLIMS OF INDIA ARE NOT A COHESIVE UNIFORM ONE BLOCK WITH ONE MINDSET.

Then there is the issue of identity.......the individual verses the community. Do most Muslims go around thinking I'm Muslim most of the time?........no not really. Most NORMAL people think in terms of individual identity. Who am I ? What are my needs? What are my specific interests? The farmer ploughing the field doesn't Think...I'm a Muslim...I'm a Muslim.......the market vendor doesn't think I am a Muslim...I'm a Muslim.

Such PRIMITIVE SIMPLISTIC VIEWING/PERCEPTION COMES USUALLY FROM POLITICIANS TRYING TO GET VOTES....OR SCREWEY GOVERNMENT OFFICERS OR RACIST JOURNALISTS AND MEDIA COMMENTATORS.

We like putting people in categories....especially I'm told the Americans. It makes life so much more simpler..............but you can't categorize people that simply. Human beings of all shades are nuanced. Mexicans are not Turks...Turks are not Arabs...Arabs are not Iranian...Iranians are not Indonesians.....and Indonesians are not Somali...and Somali are not Indian.....and Indians are not Brazilians...and so on.

As to the 'al-CIA -duh' nonesense....well as the name suggests it is an Israeli/American Intelligence fiction to destabilise and invade Greater Middle countries, as a fifth filth column. We know who carried out 9/11...and to THINK THAT 50,000--100,000 American armed Toyota driving ISIS suddenly came out of the blue through NATO TURKEY AND SCUMBAG SPECIAL OPS JORDAN without the Americans having the slightest clue is orchestrating imagination to the limits.

'al-CIA-duh' is a worn out sales pitch so enter ISIS....or 'al-CIA-duh' 3.

India is not in the Greater Middle East....but Pakistan and Afghanistan are.

Provided RAW and the IB don't work for foreign entities and narratives like Mir Jafar in Mumbai 26/11....then India will be OK.

So what happened with Pakistan? 

Pakistan was created by the British using the Muslim League, founded by the British, and Jinnah a British agent who orated his best speeches in English, drank to excess and scoffed down ham sandwiches.......never in his life seen near a Mosque during his whole public life. I dare a researcher to find a picture of Jinnah near a Mosque. And of course you can get any rent a crowd to start Communal riots...dime a dozen. The British especially started this process from 1880....its called divide and rule.

In modern times it is the BJP/RSS together with Safron terror who instigate it for political purpose.

Perhaps a greater percentage of Pashtun origin Indians can be recruited into the Indian army, beyond the meager 2% figure........they are the worlds BEST MOUNTAIN fighters...instead of wallowing in poverty wasting away their sheer talent. 12% of the Indian army, inducted into mountain divisions...we can see them fight and die for India. The Mughal army had 30% Hindus.

Indian Muslims will live and die for India, PM Narendra Modi says


Times of India.

"Indian Muslims will live for India, they will die for India — they will not want anything bad for India," Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said in his first interview after assuming office.

"My understanding is that they are doing injustice towards the Muslims of our country. If anyone thinks Indian Muslims will dance to their tune, they are delusional," Modi told CNN's Fareed Zakaria when asked about the head of al-Qaida issuing a video and an appeal trying to create an al-Qaida in India- South Asia.

He was also put a question about the remarkable phenomenon that out of the 170 million Muslims in India, there seemed to be no or very few members of al-Qaida even though it is in Afghanistan and Pakistan. "What is it that has made this community not as susceptible?"
 
Modi answered that first he was not the authority for doing a psychological and religious analysis on this.

"But the question is whether or not humanity should be defended in the world. Whether or not believers in humanity should unite. This is a crisis against humanity, not a crisis against one country or one race. So we have to frame this as a fight between humanity and inhumanity, nothing else," he said.

China and Infrastructure in India.

.
.
.
.
Its not that ALL of India's Infrastructure will be met by China, but that when a successful foreign power shows what it can do....... it motivates the 90% of the Infrastructure providers from India to do better. ....and explore the extreme possibilities.

Some of the Infrastructure designs are sheer fantastic, but who will dare to build such things?


_____________________________________

Xi Jinping arrives today, China set to get bigger role in infrastructure and water


India is back in the great game in Asia. PM Narendra Modi's blitzkrieg through three toplevel summits in September — Japan, China and US — is intimately tied to his vision of the India he wants to create.

After affirming close ties with Japan earlier this month, Modi flies into Ahmedabad on Wednesday for arguably his most important summit. Because it's with China that India will test its strategic opportunities and challenges.

The government promises a rich menu of agreements during the Xi visit. A sample of what may be in store points to a much bigger Chinese presence in the Indian development story.

Two industrial parks in Gujarat and Maharashtra to focus on the power sector and auto components financed by Chinese banks, bringing Bank of China into India for the first time.

If they pass muster, India can invite more Chinese investment as Modi tries to revive the economy and breathe life into a moribund manufacturing sector. The PM understands while India may have some niche capabilities in software and pharmaceuticals, no country has taken off without being a manufacturing power.(That is the only source of employment, besides Infrastructure which will give INFLATION FREE BOOST to the Indian economy and jobs)




With water a top priority for Modi, there's interest in getting Chinese companies to finance and dredge canals and reservoirs to help agriculture and build India's water storage capacities. High-speed railways promise to take up a lot of Chinese investment, as India plans to upgrade tracks, stations and coaches.

Beijing's slowdown can be offset by India's growth opportunity. India will have to play two levels at once — mass manufacturing with China's help and high quality, next generation innovative stuff where Japan and Germany come in.

The Modi government must overcome Indian institutional wariness to an increased Chinese presence. The China opportunity quickly comes up against the Chinese challenge — on the border, inside India's cyber networks, via Pakistan and on the high seas. In a depressing replay of Depsang and the Vietnam oil rig episodes, Xi's visit has been preceded by a reported Chinese intrusion in Ladakh. The PLA pin-pricks, which are rarely "local" incidents, have put an added edge to bilateral ties and underscored India's interest in a quick border settlement.

The conventional wisdom is Xi and Modi being the most powerful leaders of their countries can work out a border deal. Modi has to convince Parliament, but that may be easier than the delicate dance Xi must perform with PLA. Xi may be the unquestioned head of the Chinese military, but he needs PLA on his side as he undertakes tough internal restructuring, targets party corruption and redirects China's export-led economy .


It's not clear whether a territorial deal involving some concession can be easily sold.

In the last couple of years, China has abandoned the pretence of its "peaceful rise", building an expansionist, aggressive persona that's sent Vietnam, Philippines, Japan, India all working to "balance" the dragon in the room. This comes when the US is up to its ears in crises elsewhere -Syria, Iran, ISIS, Ukraine and Af-Pak.
(ALL Created by the USA itself---to get the military industrial complex going)

India therefore must create its own strategic space in Asia.One key element is to ensure "distance" between Pakistan and China. Xi's decision to drop the Pakistan leg of his trip should not be seen as a Chinese change of heart.

It's a bonus.

Top 10 Priorities Chindia

.
.
.
.
Times of India


Chinese President Xi Jinping is on a three-day visit to India which will focus on significantly ramping up trade and investment, besides addressing the contentious border issue that has seen occasional flare ups between the two Asian giants. Below are the 10 Chinese and Indian priorities:

China India collaboration

.
.
.
.
The priority for such development is trade, with greater volume than the current small figure of $66 billion, with a deficit of $32 billion against India. Both countries can open up their markets towards greater trade, MEANINGFULLY.

In addition the development of infrastructure ....road and rail via Assam into China to accelerate the trade.

Presently the Karakoram Highway is the only main road into South Asia, and that is unreliable in Winter, and does not have a rail linkage. A road and rail network brings geographically China closer to South Asia, without having to crisscross distant Sinkiang.

China will help India set up bullet trains..hopefully in North India....Calcutta--Delhi? Through Maoist territory.

Significant Industrial Parks again set up by China in the more productive and effective run states such as Gujarat and Maharashtra. 

China is India's biggest trading partner, but the volume of trade has to be artificially boosted to enforce greater strategic relationship. Greater trade is the best guarantor of peace.

Xi Jinping sees 'factory' China and 'back office' India as global engine


Reuters and Times of India.

 A combination of the "world's factory" and the "world's back office" will drive global economic growth, Chinese President Xi Jinping said ahead of a rare visit to India on Wednesday, playing down mistrust that has kept the Asian giants apart.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is determined to build closer relations with the world's second-largest economy, whose leader arrives on Modi's 64th birthday and comes with pledges to invest billions of dollars in railways, industrial parks and roads.

"As the two engines of the Asian economy, we need to become cooperation partners spearheading growth," Xi wrote in a column in the Hindu newspaper.

He said China's strong manufacturing base and India's software and scientific skills had massive potential both as a production base and for creating a consumer market.

Modi is seeking more access for India's IT services and pharmaceuticals to China to help balance $65 billion in annual trade that is heavily tilted in China's favour.

They may also discuss working together on civilian nuclear programmes and seek a solution for a long-running travel visa row, Indian officials said.

Modi hopes the leaders of the world's two most populous nations will establish a personal rapport to match the warmth he shares with Japanese Prime Minister Abe, who wished him happy returns in a phone call on Wednesday morning, Indian media reported.

But beyond the smiles and the commercial embrace, ties between nuclear-armed India and China are marked by competition for energy and regional clout as well as a festering border dispute that led to a brief war 52 years ago.

Even as officials rolled out red carpets for Xi in Gujarat's main city, Ahmedabad, friction emerged over a Himalayan border incursion and a pact between India and Vietnam to explore for oil and gas in parts of the South China Sea claimed by Beijing.

In his column, Xi said the two sides were "properly managing problems and differences" and that they shared one of the most dynamic and promising bilateral relations of the 21st century.

In one sign that India wants the Xi visit to be a success, New Delhi asked the Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama to reschedule an event in the capital so that it would not clash with the Chinese president's trip there on Friday.

The Dalai Lama, whom Beijing labels a separatist seeking an independent Tibet, has lived in India since fleeing across the Himalayas after a failed uprising against Chinese rule of his homeland in 1959. Police detained a small group of Tibetan protesters from outside China's embassy in Delhi on Wednesday.

Modi's "intensive" foreign policy

In a little more than 100 days since he came to power, Modi has engaged in what his government describes as "an intensive state of global engagement", reaching out to smaller neighbours and clasping Japan's Abe in a bear hug on his first major trip outside South Asia.

He is due to visit Washington and New York at the end of the month.


India has taken a tougher stance on Beijing's practice of issuing stapled, rather than printed, visas to Indian citizens from Arunachal Pradesh and Ladakh. Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj told her Chinese counterpart she expected China to accept a "one India policy."

"When they raised with us the issue of Tibet and Taiwan, we appreciated their sensitivities. So we also want that they should understand and appreciate our sensitivities regarding Arunachal," she told reporters earlier this month.

India said on Tuesday it would firmly defend its 3,500-km (2,200-mile) border with China after media reported a new face-off on the frontier.

"The two ... have the opportunity to craft a new kind of relationship between great powers that is very different from the Western-dominated, post-World War Two model of great power ties," said Jabin Jacob of the Institute of Chinese Studies in New Delhi.

"It remains to be seen, however, whether Modi and Xi can together summon the vision and statesmanship needed to grab the opportunity," he wrote in a commentary before the visit.

Modi is not the only regional leader seeking strategic influence, defence partners and economic opportunities.

Earlier this month, Abe visited Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, asserting Tokyo's interest in a region where it has ceded influence to China.

Xi followed this week with trips to the Maldives, the Indian Ocean island nation that New Delhi has long considered its area of influence, and Sri Lanka, where the two sides built on a blossoming relationship by agreeing to launch negotiations for a free trade agreement.

USA attack against Syria

The New "Regime Change" Plan - Attack Damascus From The South

By Moon Of Alabama and Information Clearing House

- There are serious active preparations for a new attack on Damascus. Anti-government forces, including the Al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra, have been trained and equipped in Jordan and are now moving into their starting position in Quneitra governate in south-west Syria. (A similar plan in spring 2013 was only partially executed and later aborted,)
Quneitra governate is a strip next to the Israel occupied Golan heights with a southern border to Jordan and a north western border with Lebanon.
The anti-government forces cooperating for this operation are the Syrian Revolutionaries Front (SRF), which is backed by the United States, assisted by the Islamic Front, backed by Saudi Arabia, and al-Qaeda's Jabhat al-Nusrah which just received some $20 million from Qatar. These forces infiltrated from Jordan through Daara and then up north-westward along the border with Israel. This movement, during which some UN observers were kidnapped by these forces, was supported by Israeli artillery strikes against Syrian units that tried to prevent it. The sole border station between Israel and Syria is now in the hands of the anti-government forces. The Israeli military is also providing medical support to these anti-government forces. The UN has pulled out all peacekeepers from the Syrian side of the Golan height demarcation line.
The anti-government forces now control a 40 miles (70km) long, three miles (5km) wide strip from Jordan along the Golan frontier up to Lebanon. This strip can be used to infiltrate into Hizbullah territory in south Lebanon but its main purpose is likely an attack on Damascus from the south. The Syrian military would have great difficulties to dislodge the anti-government forces from this strip as it is covered by Israeli anti-air and artillery fire.
.
There are rumors that Jabhat al-Nusra is leaving positions it has been holding in Hama governate in north Syria. It's groups are pulling back into Turkey to be transferred to Jordan and then as reinforcements into Quneitra.
.
The rather empty Quneitra area makes little sense to conquer except to be used as a launching pad for an attack from the south towards Damascus. The distance to the capital is only some 40 miles (60km). While two Syrian army divisions are stationed between Quneitra governate and Damascus coordinated air attacks against them could open and secure a route from Quneitra governate into the capital. Recent truce agreements between the U.S. supported Syrian Revolutionary Front and ISIS in the area south of Damascus may have been concluded with these attack plans in mind.
.
The U.S. military in the joint Arab-American operations room for the Syrian insurgency in Amman Jordan may well plan to use the murky new "war on ISIS" as pretext for attacks on the Syrian army divisions protecting Damascus from the south. Coordinated with a ground attack by Jabhat al-Nusra and others from Quneitra such air attacks would seriously degrade the Syrian forces and enable a destructive push into Damascus.
(update) Obama already announced the escalation path for such air attacks:
He made clear the intricacy of the situation, though, as he contemplated the possibility that Mr. Assad might order his forces to fire at American planes entering Syrian airspace. If he dared to do that, Mr. Obama said he would order American forces to wipe out Syria’s air defense system, which he noted would be easier than striking ISIS because its locations are better known. He went on to say that such an action by Mr. Assad would lead to his overthrow, according to one account.
The stampede to attack ISIS may have been pure maskirovka to hide this violent regime change attack plan against Syria under some "anti-terrorism" label. This at the same time as the plan is coordinated with and actively supported by Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda's affiliate in Syria, and made possible through truce agreements with ISIS.

Reinforcing the recent peace deal

With WINTER coming around the corner, and economic collapse the oligarch Jewish Nazi puppet regime in Kiev, installed by the JEWSA illegally........... finally sees some sense or a sense of survival.

Ironically the present offer by The Jewish Nazi Kiev government to Eastern Ukraine was on the table last year proposed by Russia, along with $ billions of aid, real BROTHERLY friendship and cooperation and subsidized fuel from Moscow.

Now that the Ukraine military have been defeated (Ukrainians don't like fighting Ukrainians no matter what the Jewish leadership in Kiev says), and gas supplies cut off from the regular amount, the Jewish Oligarch Nazi government see's sense and comes to compromise from a position of weakness...and only after the death of 2,000 Ukrainians and the further destruction of large parts of the country in the region of $20 billion, along with imminent economic collapse.

This is the NATURE of the Jewish Oligarch Nazi puppet regime in Kiev-----they understand and obey force and power.....but not reason and coexistence.

Ukraine Grants ‘Special Status’ for East to End War

Deal Includes Amnesty for Rebels

by Jason Ditz at antiwar.com





The Ukrainian parliament has approved a package of concessions to eastern rebels aimed at ending the ongoing civil war in the nation, declaring a three year “special status” for the eastern oblasts of Donetsk and Luhansk.
.
The special status would grant the region increased autonomy, amnesty for the rebels, the right to use Russian as an official language, and the right to form local police forces independent of the national government.
.

The three year window, according to President Poroshenko, is meant to cover the period it will take before changes to the constitution usher in “profound decentralization” of the entire nation, granting similar levels of autonomy to everyone.

Over the weekend, Poroshenko confirmed the rebels released 73 Ukrainian troops as part of the ceasefire deal. Though there are questions about whether the ceasefire would last, there appears to be momentum in favor of it.

German academics in Iran to boost cooperation

By Presstv.com



An academic delegation from Germany is visiting Iran in the hope of boosting scientific cooperation between the two countries. 
.
The visit comes as the two sides are scheduled to sign a Memorandum of Understanding on scientific and technology cooperation.
.
Representatives from different German universities, directed by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), held talks with chancellors of Iranian universities in Tehran on Sunday.
.
The 3-hour meeting dubbed “Iran-Germany Academic Cooperation” centered on the academic potentials of each country and the capacities for student and professor exchange between the two countries.
.
The German delegation has also toured Iranian universities and research institutes.
.
“We can initiate, and we had in the morning a long session, we talked about possible programs, possible transnational projects between German and Iranian universities and we are quite impressed by the high quality of the universities in Iran,” DAAD President Margret Wintermantel told Press TV.

“We can start more cooperation and intensify our cooperation and I think it would be fine, if we will be success what we began today,” she added.
High potentials of both Iranian and German universities brought hope to both sides for boosting academic cooperation.
.
On Saturday, Wintermantel said that DAAD plans to open an official bureau in Tehran.
The largest of its kind in the world, DAAD is the German national agency for supporting international academic cooperation by offering scholarships and grants to qualified foreign students.
.
According to Wintermantel, the visit is aimed at “initiating new contacts between German and Iranian universities and deepening existing (academic) contacts”.
 

Roti Kapda Makaan aur Mars

With science one associates it primarily with the West, but India was a scientific powerhouse up until let me think of the date.........1750.

There must be some use in sending Indian orbitals to Mars and spending billions of $ of public money to find OPEN public information the USA has already published about the Red planet such as......... are there any corner shops or a curry restaurants or a motel on Mars?

Indira Gandha use to keep the price tags on the gifts for journalists attendees at the zillions of conferences she organized in Delhi....so said John Simpson.

India needs to get its basics right first for the aam admi, instead of posturing for the International Community.

Its population is too big and STILL increasing, and 850 million of them are extremely poor.

India gears up to put Mars mission in orbit


Sleepless Indian space scientists on Sunday began the process of 'waking up' the engine of the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) spacecraft for a four-second test on September 22.

READ ALSO: Date with Mars: MOM of all missions

Three days later, it will be put to its ultimate test — firing for 24 minutes to slow down the MOM and inject it into the Martial orbit. Should they pull it off, India will be the first country to do so on debut.

The US, Russia and the European Space Agency had got it right after repeated attempts.

MOM, hurtling at a speed of 82,000kmph, has been idling for about 300 days since it left the Earth's influence on November 30, 2013.

"We have to see if the engine is in shape, hence the test," said Isro chairman K Radhakrishnan. "It will also serve as a trajectory correction which will take MOM to a 515km arrival spot from Mars."

On Sunday, scientists at Isro Telemetry Tracking and Command Network in Bangalore sent a bundle of commands to test-fire the liquid apogee motor (LAM) engine for four seconds.



MOM project director S Arunan said the test-firing would take the spacecraft, moving at a speed of about 22km per second, away from the trajectory by more than 100km, but this would be factored in to the final Martian orbital injection on September 24.



Isro chairman K Radhakrishnan

READ ALSO: Mars Orbiter Mission: India's 'giant leap'

MOM would be reaching the Martian orbit two days after the US orbiter MAVEN. With the ingenuous sling-shot approach, India has been able to send the orbiter to Mars at Rs450 crore, which is 10 times less than the cost of the Nasa mission. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said India could launch this mission at the cost of the Hollywood film 'Gravity'.

READ ALSO: Mars orbiter mission spacecraft readies to hide behind Red Planet
Once in orbit around the red planet, MOM will study its atmosphere, mineralogy and morphology. More than the results of the scientific studies, the mission will serve as a starting point for India's interplanetary exploration.

USA India potential trade

.
.
.
.
India could seek an FTA or an MFN status from the USA. Not illogical or over ambitious.

Massive deregulation would have to follow the rules governing trade between the two countries.

If Obama is slow incorporating trade deregulation between the two countries then possibly a Republican administration would more than likely take the necessary steps to change the fundamental trading relationship between them.

So called left cover 'liberals' posture around USA India relationship, whilst it is the Republicans who actually take serious measures to help India in such strategic matters.

HOWEVER:

Hilary Clinton promised India that she will become a great power....a dangerous proposition.

President Clinton finally came to India at the very end of his second term for essentially photo-ops, and delivered/Signed NOTHING important for India.

Bush II 2nd term?

Obama?

Butch Gay Modi who may have been elected with American help (Landslide 285 seats...and a False flag in South India during the elections), will however get a better reception than ManMohan Singh et al ........in terms of technology transfer, and Upping the trade volume between the two giants.

The real question is of degree.

As with Japan and China and so with the USA TRADE is the real indicator of relationships between nations. 

Not flowery praise and rhetorical gestures.

China, Russia reported to build huge seaport in North East Asia

Reuters/Carlos Barria

Rt.com

China and Russia are to build one of the largest ports in northeast Asia on Russia's Sea of Japan coast, Chinese media reports. It is the latest step by Beijing and Moscow to bring their economies closer, and diversify from Western influence.
.
The new seaport will be located in Russia’s Far East, just 18 kilometers away from the Chinese border and will be capable to handle up to 60 million tons of cargo a year, China's state-run People's Daily Online reported.

The deal between the two countries was signed at May's Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA) in Shanghai, the report said. 
.
Chinese booming domestic consumption makes the country search for ways to diversify its sources of energy. Russia, in turn, is seeking to refocus its trade towards Asia from western markets amid the tit-for-tat sanctions over the crisis in Ukraine.
.
In August the two countries agreed to set up a special logistics center which will allow to sell fruit and vegetables directly to Russia, which is expected to offset any negative effect of the Russian food embargo.


On September 1 Russian President Vladimir Putin Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli have launched the construction of the first part of Gazprom’s 'Power of Siberia' pipeline. 
.
The construction follows a historic gas deal signed in May which will provide the world's fastest growing economy with 4 trillion cubic meters of natural gas it needs to keep pace for the next 30 years.

In the search for financial independence

Since the US introduced its first sanctions in March, Russia has sped up efforts to get away from the Western financial system. In the latest move, Russia confirmed on Wednesday it is planning to join forces with China and create an alternative to the international banking transaction system SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications). 
.
“Yes, we have discussed and we have approved this idea,” Russia’s First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov told PRIME on Wednesday after negotiations in Beijing.
.
On top of that, Russia and China are actively discussing the creation of an independent rating agency, Shuvalov said, adding that concrete proposals will be made by the end of the year. 
.
Meanwhile, China’s UnionPay payment system, a version of Visa and MasterCard, is ready to provide the infrastructure for Russia to establish its own payment system.

Urgent Appeal: Help Peter Mandelson find his missing hamster


Rothschild and Mandelson
Rothschild bumboy, Peter Mandelson, was left in floods of tears last night when told he would not be replacing Rolf Harris on the next series of Animal Hospital.
.
Paedophilic Pete, who loves nothing better than buggering and then strangling young boys, thought the job was his after reading you had to be a pervert to present it.
.
Unfortunately though, he is now subject to an investigation by the RSPCH- The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Hamsters- following an anonymous tip-off from a French hospital.
.
They were worried about how much he really cares for animals after his pet hamster Hodgie disappeared in mysterious circumstances.
.
Hodgie is named after Pete’s close pal, child-procurer and despicable hag, Margaret Oppenheimer-Hodge.
.Mandelson and Hodge
Margaret Hodge is up to her neck in filth of the highest order and is personally responsible for the cover-up of the death of Jason Swift and the vile Islington care home abuse rings.
.
Blair Cover Up
She loves nothing better than to snatch children from loving parents and hand them over to her paedophilic fellow tribesmen.
.Jason Swift
Pete himself is one of the sickest, most satanic, child-raping, pieces of scum to have ever walked this earth and is quite unbelievably the head of the NSPCC.
.
He also has a most disturbing hobby.
. Naughty Peter Mandelson
Peter Mandelson likes to put live, furry animals up his back passage.
.
Good Lord.
.
Sounds weird to us but apparently it gives him a bit of thrill.
.
On one occasion, a petrified gerbil went nuts in Pete’s nether regions and caused him so much damage he couldn’t sit down for a week (Pete that is, not the gerbil).
.
In fact, come to think of it, it’s probably time to call off the hunt for Pete’s missing pet after all.
.
RIP Hodgie the hamster.

Greater Russian Iranian trade integration and economic cooperation--LOGICAL

.
.
.
.
Trade and economic cooperation between the two near neighbors is accelerating to a greater volume.

Russia will buy Iranian oil, and possibly gas from this year. 

If only Russia found the courage to lease, rent or even sell defensive military hardware to Iran so that the strategic relationship with the near neighbor becomes more HOLISTIC/REALISTIC---scenario..why increase trade and economic cooperation if there is the possibility that both of the neighbors will be attacked and damaged?

Thus negating the success of the increased cooperation.

Russia must sell cheaper air-defense equipment to Iran as well as EW equipment AND modern jet fighters such as the SU-30MKK.....available TO the airforces of People's Liberation Army Air Force Indonesian Air Force Uganda People's Defence Force Venezuelan Air Force Vietnam People's Air Force.

Iran's airforce is a joke, neglected as it is by the mullah's. ......IT produces a few fighters based on the copy of the F-5/20 Tiger-shark which is a plane designed in 1957 by the USA. Let Iran license build and fly modern current Russian jet fighters.

Iran should be considered as a first line of defense upon any subsequent attack on Russia.(Republican Spain in 1936--39)

Iran, Russia sign $91-billion projects to boost trade, economic ties

Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak (L) shakes hands with Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh on September 9, 2014 in Tehran.

By Presstv.com
.


The Russian minister announced the report on Tuesday night during the 11th round of Iran-Russia trade cooperation commission, held in Tehran.
.  
He said that 40 Russian companies took part in the joint economic meeting.
.
Russia is ready to export products and services to Iran while it is keen to import required services and products from the Islamic Republic, he said.
.
Novak also said that Russia takes an interest in Iran’s oil and gas market after US-led sanctions imposed on Iran over the country’s civilian nuclear program led to restrictions on the activities of foreign companies in Iran’s oil sector.
.
Russia can initiate a big movement in Iran’s oil industry if certain rules and regulations on trade cooperation are improved in Iran.
.
He also said that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will meet with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in the near future.
.
