The world watches anxiously as the US-led P5+1 group negotiate with Iran to curb its uranium enrichment programme, in exchange for relieving economic sanctions that has crippled the country. the White House recently said it will lift the sanctions the instant Iran cuts down its production. Iran has been accused of breaching the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) which it signed in 1968. Further, the nuclear watchdog, the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency), says Iran is uncooperative in allowing official weapon inspections to take... The sanctions have immensely hurt the country, the inflation rate peaked at 40% in 2013 and oil trade fell from 2. 2million barrels per day in 2011 to 700,000 in May 2013. Restrictions include: exporting nuclear technology or heavy weaponry,... P5+1 stated sanctions will be lifted in a gradual process, but Iran insisted it should be revoked once the agreements are sealed. 1/ In the next 10 years, Iran cuts its uranium production from 19,000 centrifuges to 6,104, with only 5,060 working to enrich uranium. 2/ In the next 15 years, Iran must curb its 10,000kg of uranium stockpile to just 300kg. 3/.
Now Southwest Airlines , which few would label as mismanaged, faces severe competition that occurred through extraordinary bankruptcy restructuring - and the associated mergers which helped sterngthen the power of the three major full service... they also fiercely protect even locally established airlines from having foreign investment above a threshold which is now one of the lowest in the world. US airlines focus on Gulf airlines while ignoring subsidies to their own partners Mr Anderson has recently been more careful with his words, saying Gulf airlines benefit from national policies like low or no taxes. References like "foreign airlines receiving government subsidies" (as Mr Anderson told a US House committee hearing in Jun-2014) are abstract and do not explicitly point fingers, even if the targets are obvious. Mr Anderson's more focussed attack is on the topic of government-owned airlines. Mr Anderson singles out Gulf airlines while ignoring for example his own partners, many of which are government-owned, and some of which have received considerable subsidies, whereas Gulf carriers have received no known direct subsidies, aside...
On 12 May 2010, in the sunlit rose garden of No 10, David Cameron and Nick Clegg announced the creation of Britain’s new coalition government. In a flawlessly stage-managed performance , Cameron proclaimed the birth of a “new politics”. His coalition government would, he said, be underpinned by the principles of “freedom, fairness and responsibility”. The coalition agreement that was hashed out in the days before the rose garden show was a strange magna carta. Cameron’s ambition was no less than to abolish the postwar welfare state itself. The Office of Budget Responsibility recently announced Cameron’s victory – by 2018, it forecast, we would have a state the size it was in the 1930s. This was a coup, though Cameron, unlike Thatcher, would never triumphantly produce from his pocket... the swivel-eyed stuff was left to backroom guru Oliver Letwin, former special adviser to Keith Joseph, the man who said Conservatives should no longer conserve but instead demolish all that stopped the flowering of individualism. Cameron was guided by the groupthink of his generation of young Tories, inspired by the Thatcher posters on their college walls.
