GERMAN FM ANNOUNCES STEPS AGAINST TURKEY

Turkish authorities named dozens of German firms as supporters of the Gulen movement in a list they sent to Germany’s federal police, according to Die Zeit weekly. The list includes industry giants Daimler and BASF.Ankara has handed Germany what police sources called a “ridiculous” list of 68 companies and individuals in Germany who have ties with Fethullah Gulen, enemy of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Die Zeit reported on Wednesday.Turkey blames Gulen and his followers for the failed military coup a year ago, in which over 250 civilians lost their lives in the violence. The movement is banned and branded as a terrorist faction by the state.
Turkey blames Gulen and his followers for the failed military coup a year ago, in which over 250 civilians lost their lives in the violence. The movement is banned and branded as a terrorist faction by the state.
The list, forwarded to Germany several weeks ago, names the car maker Daimler and chemical company BASF as backers of terrorism, but also includes a Turkish fast food restaurant and a late-night food store.
Earlier this month, Erdogan told Die Zeit that his officials sent 4,500 files on alleged Gulen sympathizers to Germany and demanded that they be extradited to Turkey.
“You need to deliver these terrorists to Turkey,” he said. “As long as you don’t, Turkey will perceive Germany as a country which is protecting terrorists.”
German officials view the list from Ankara as “absurd” and “ridiculous.” Germany’s Federal Criminal Police (BKA) has requested additional information from their Turkish colleagues, but has received no reply so far, Die Zeit reports.
Germany has been locked in a long-running diplomatic row with Turkey, with Berlin slamming the purges by Erdogan’s administration and accusing the Turkish government of using violence to silence its political opponents. Earlier on Wednesday, Germany summoned the Turkish ambassador in Berlinto protest the arrest of several human rights activists, including German citizen Peter Steudtner.
Reports DW
German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel announced on Thursday a range of steps against Turkey in response to the detention of a German human rights activist, signaling a more confrontational stance to the NATO ally after an escalation in tensions. Sigmar Gabriel said Germany would talk to EU partners about Turkey’s aspirations to join the bloc and made clear Berlin could no longer guarantee German corporate investment in Turkey. He also said he could not envisage talks on expanding the customs union to Turkey and he issued new travel advice which warned of risks in Turkey for Germans. “We need to be clearer than we have been until now so those responsible in Ankara understand that such policies are not without consequences,”Gabriel told reporters. He said the new steps had been agreed with Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Germany raised the possibility on Wednesday of suspending European Union aid payments to Turkey after summoning Ankara’s ambassador to Berlin to protest over the arrest of six human rights activists including a German citizen. The moves mark a further escalation of tensions between NATO allies Germany and Turkey.“Unfortunately we have constant cause to talk to Turkey about civil and press freedoms,”government spokesman Steffen Seibert said. “We think it is important to review aid in light of the latest developments.” Seibert was referring to a package of assistance totaling €3 billion that the EU has promised to Turkey to help stem flows of migrants, mostly from conflict zones in the Middle East, into Europe

LOK SABHA ADJOURNED FOR THE DAY

Lok Sabha was today adjourned for the day following Opposition uproar over the issue of farmers’ plight. As soon as the House met for the day, the Opposition led by Congress and Left raised the issue of the agrarian crisis in the country and trooped into the well shouting slogans.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar questioned the opposition and said only two Congress members were present yesterday when discussion on the issue was taking place in the Lok Sabha.
The Congress and Left members also raised the issue of alleged bribe taken by a BJP leader in Kerala to ensure Medical Council of India’s recognition for a private medical college in the state and demanded probe into it. When the House met at noon following two adjournments, the situation was no different as Opposition members continued the sloganeering. Amidst the din, the Speaker adjourned the House for the day.
Meanwhile, in the Rajya Sabha, senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh asked the government to look into the demands being raised by farmers across the country seeking Minimum Support Prices (MSP) for their produce. Raising the issue during the Zero Hour, Mr Singh said the BJP government had assured farmers of providing MSP in its election manifesto.

DIGITAL TRANSACTIONS ‘LEAPFROGGED’

State Bank of India has said that India has leapfrogged three years of digitisation in just seven months post demonetisation and the government’s drive to promote use of debit and credit cards at point of sale or PoS terminals.
According to a SBI research report, the volume of digital transactions has crossed the 70,000 crore rupee level in last seven months. It informs that banks have installed 11.8 lakh additional POS terminals to facilitate this movement.
The report says that similar trends are observed in usage of pre-paid instruments including m-wallet, PPI cards and mobile banking.
The SBI Report claims that an increase of 10,000 crore rupees of transactions by credit and debit cards at PoS terminals will lead to around 1.1 percent decline in Consumer Price Index based inflation.

GENERAL PIERRE DE VILLIERS QUITS

France, the head of the armed forces has quit after a clash with President, Emmanuel Macron over budget cuts. In a statement, General Pierre de Villiers said, he could no longer guarantee the durability of the army model that he considered necessary to ensure France’s protection.
The row between Macron and de Villiers erupted last week when the chief of staff told a parliamentary committee that he would not allow the armed forces to be screwed by the government’s plans to slash 850 million euros from this year’s defence budget.
Last week, France’s government revealed major cuts to bring its budget deficit below the level of an EU cap. President Marcon named General Francois Lecointre, hero of the Balkans wars, as de Villiers’s replacement.

INDONESIA BANS HIZBUT GROUP

Indonesian government has banned Hizbut Tahrir, an organisation that wants to establish a global caliphate. Director General of the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights,Freddy Haris, said Hizbut’s legal status had been revoked to protect national unity.
The decree signed last week by President Joko Widodo gives the government an unfettered power to ban organisations deemed against the constitution and the official state ideology known as Pancasila, which enshrines democracy and social justice.
Haris said, Hizbut’s activities were against Pancasila and the soul of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia.
The measures follow months of sectarian tensions in the world’s most populous Muslim nation that shook the government and undermined Indonesia’s reputation for practising a moderate form of Islam.

ENGLAND BEAT SA REACH WOMEN’S WORLD CUP FINAL

Heather Knight and Danielle Hazell toast their victory, England v South Africa, Women’s World Cup, Bristol, July 18, 2017/ICC
BRISTOL: Sarah Taylor struck a vital half-century to help England book a place in the Women´s World Cup final as they beat South Africa by two wickets at Bristol on Tuesday.
Taylor, back in an England shirt for this tournament after a year out of the game, hit 54 off 76 balls to give England control of the match before a mini collapse created a nail-biting finish.
Yet England, set 219 to win, held their nerve to complete their second highest successful run chase in World Cup history, built on the third-wicket partnership of 78 between Taylor and England captain Heather Knight.
The result bodes well for England as they go in search of their first piece of silverware in eight years, having won both previous World Cups they hosted.
Sarah Taylor and Heather Knight celebrate victory/ICC
Earlier, South Africa pair Laura Wolvaardt and Mignon du Preez recorded half-centuries as they reached 218 for six, after captain Dane van Niekerk elected to bat first with sunny blue skies overhead.
England did make an early breakthrough when Anya Shrubsole bowled Lizelle Lee for 7, having had an lbw decision against the powerful opener reversed on review the previous over.
But teenager Wolvaardt took charge and laid the foundations for South Africa´s innings, scoring her fourth half-century of the tournament, which came off 81 balls and included six fours.
Taylor produced a spectacular piece of wicketkeeping to remove Trisha Chetty, stumping her off a legside wide from Nat Sciver before Wolvaardt consolidated with Du Preez to the tune of 77 for the third wicket.
Wolvaardt eventually fell to Knight, bowled off the England skipper´s second delivery of the match, prior to new bat Marizanne Kapp being run out by Shrubsole three balls later in the same over.
Van Niekerk departed in similar fashion following quick work by Sciver in the field, and then Jenny Gunn had Chloe Tryon caught and bowled.
Du Preez, who top-scored with 76, and Sune Luus kept the score ticking over to ensure a challenging total was posed.
South Africa were inconsolable after their semi-final loss/ICC
South Africa, the lowest ranked side to reach the knockout rounds of the tournament, experienced a difficult start to the second innings as they struggled with their lines.
Ayabonga Khaka found it easier going, though, and accounted for both openers, as Du Preez caught Lauren Winfield and Khaka sent Tammy Beaumont´s bails flying.
Taylor showed her intent straight away with the bat and looked in supreme form before being run out by Van Niekerk four runs after reaching her half-century.
That dismissal saw England lose three wickets in 12 deliveries, as Knight pulled a full toss to Wolvaardt for 30 and Luus bowled Sciver round her legs on three, to bring South Africa back in the match.
Moseline Daniels then dismantled Katherine Brunt´s stumps, Fran Wilson departed ramping Kapp, and Laura Marsh was bowled by Ismail to leave the hosts needing two off three balls.
But Shrubsole smashed her first delivery for four to win it and take England through to a sell-out Lord´s final — against either defending champions Australia or India — on Sunday.

US ENFORCE NEW SANCTIONS AGAINST IRAN

United States slapped new economic sanctions against Iran over its ballistic missile programme. US said Tehran’s malign activities in the Middle East undercut any positive contributions coming from the 2015 Iran nuclear accord.
The measures signalled that the administration of President Donald Trump was seeking to put more pressure on Iran while keeping in place an agreement between Tehran and six world powers to curb its nuclear programme in return for lifting international oil and financial sanctions.
The US government yesterday said it was targeting 18 entities and people for supporting what is said was illicit Iranian actors or transnational criminal activity. Those sanctioned had backed Iran’s military or Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps by developing drones and military equipment, producing and maintaining boats, and procuring electronic components.
The Treasury Department said others had orchestrated the theft of US and Western software programs sold to Iran’s government.
The State Department said in a statement that the US remains deeply concerned about Iran’s malign activities across the Middle East which undermine regional stability, security, and prosperity.
On Monday, the Trump administration said Iran was complying with the nuclear agreement but it was also in default of the spirit of the accord and Washington would look for ways to strengthen it.

FRANCE:BILL TO TOUGHEN SECURITY LAWS HAS CLEARED

France, bill to toughen security laws has cleared its first hurdle when the conservative-dominated Senate approved the legislation by a majority. Senators backed a first reading of the bill. The text will now be handed to the Lower House, the National Assembly, for debate in October.
The new laws, a campaign pledge of President Emmanuel Macron, will replace a state of emergency imposed after the November 2015 terror attacks in Paris that left 130 people dead.
Some of them will become permanent under the proposed law, a move rights groups including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch say is draconian.
Under the state of emergency, authorities have the power to place people under house arrest, order house searches and ban public gatherings without the prior approval of a judge. The measures were extended for a sixth time on July 6.
