Colombians Reject Peace Deal With FARC Rebels

Peace deal was signed last week by President Juan Manuel Santos and farc leader Timoleon Jimenez after the negotiations of 4 years. But it had to be introduced only after the Colombians consent.

Colombians Reject Peace Deal With FARC Rebels

The ratio of voting for peace deal was 50.2% against it and 49.8% in favor, led a difference of 63000 votes out of 13 million polls.

Former President Alvaro Uribe, who headed the “no” campaign, said all Colombians wanted peace, but that the deal needed “corrections”.

 

 The government had a hope that agreement of peace would have been a drastic change towards the nation. This voting was no doubt an important survey in Colombian history .The rejection was due to the fear of concessions and favors made to guerillas.

Communicating on television just after declaring result, President Santos said that a previously announced ceasefire will hold and that President Santos said that a previously announced ceasefire will hold and that both sides would meet in the Cuban capital, Havana, to decide on a way forward. There’s also a positive indication across the Colombia to end the five decade violence.

Focusing the nation, President Santos said he accepted the result but would continue working to achieve peace.”I won’t give up,” he said. “I’ll continue the search for peace until the last moment of my authorization, as that’s the way to leave a better country to our children.”

Meanwhile the Farc chief, known as Timochenko, said the group will stick with commitment on securing an end to the war.

However, the overall peace process is covered by improbability.

Europe Should Support For The U.S. Tariffs On Many Fronts: German Official

The EU (European Union) member states must brace for the U.S. tariffs on many fronts in the months beforehand, a senior German executive cautioned; just a few hours in advance Washington launched an investigation of a proposed French digital tax that can set off future tariffs. Peter Beyer—Germany’s Member of Parliament and Transatlantic Coordinator—stated that while there was persisted US interest in coordination with Europe, the Trump government nonetheless seemed poised to enforce tariffs over arguments regarding aircraft subsidies, European car imports and the Nordstream 2 gas pipeline. In May, the U.S. President Donald Trump asserted that some of the imported vehicles and parts raised a national security fear, but postponed a verdict on imposing taxes on Japanese and European auto imports for as long as 6 Months to facilitate time for trade discussions with both partners.

Europe Should Support For The U.S. Tariffs On Many Fronts: German Official

 

European executives have said confidentially that they fear that Trump would now turn his focus to Europe, after intermediary a pact in a protracted trade spat with China. Trump in recent time ordered an investigation to find out whether France’s proposed 3% tariff on the French income of large internet firms was unfairly aiming some of the U.S.-based companies. Prior investigations aimed at the EU subsidies on huge commercial aircraft and China’s trade practices.

On a similar note, earlier, the U.S. threatened with new tariffs on the EU products worth of $4 Billion. The U.S. is strengthening its trade fight with the EU over aircraft subsidies, planning new tariffs on the EU goods valued $4 Billion. The tariffs—which were announced in recent time by the USTR (United States Trade Representative)—covered 89 products counting pasta, fruits, meat, cheese, coffee, and whiskey. They can be added to a record of the EU exports of worth $21 Billion that the USTR reported in April will be subject to tariffs.

He also disclosed about Canadian investments likely to be made in our country possibly from the Canadian pension fund sector.

Trudeau was impressed with the diversity of the country which yet stood as a unified whole and said that there was a lot to learn from India by other countries. The diversity factor was a challenging one but it did not overwhelm the country. That itself, he felt was an indication of the maturity level of the country.

To which the Kick actor said, “I don’t think I am like Virat Kohli.
He is too metrosexual. I am not.” Referring to Anushka Sharma’s boyfriend Virat as a guy who is too concerned about the way he looks and loves to shop, Salman Khanplayfully drifted from the topic and started talking about his personal life goals. For the Being Human founder, marriage is not as important as his wish to have kids.

This time the actor went ahead to express his expectations in future; “I always get so close to a wedding. God has been very kind. You can ask most married men and they will tell you what I mean. But one day my luck will run out. I hope it runs out soon. But more than marriage, having children is on my list. If I can figure out how to have those without marriage,” Salman Khan stated.
Well we surely wish to see any of that happen soon! Salman Khan is currently shooting in Gujarat for his upcoming film Prem Ratan Dhan Payo starring Sonam Kapoor.

Nokia just hit a $571-million obstacle to completing its deal with Microsoft

The Supreme Court of India ruled today that Nokia must deposit 35 billion rupees ($571 million) in an escrow account before it can transfer its factory in India to Microsoft as a part of its 5.4-billion-euro deal to sell its mobile phones business to the tech giant. The court also wants Nokia to “waive some of its rights to legal defense as a condition for transferring Indian assets to Microsoft,” reports Reuters.
Nokia just hit a $571-million obstacle to completing its deal with Microsoft

The company finds itself in this situation as a result of a long-running tax dispute, one of many involving Indian authorities and multi-national companies. India has been seeking Rs 21 billion ($339 million) in back taxes on income from downloads on phones made in India. Nokia argued that a bilateral tax treaty between India and Finland, where it is headquartered, means it doesn’t have to pay such taxes. As the case went on, Nokia agreed to set aside Rs 22.5 billion—but a high court asked it to deposit some more, in case of further tax disputes. Read More News>>
