Russia inks huge energy deals with Saudi Arabia, challenging US dominance in Gulf region

Hidden by the fog of the ongoing oil market volatility and the Turkish adventures in Syria, OPEC leader Saudi Arabia has been cementing its geopolitical position for years.

In Riyadh meetings this week between Saudi and Russian officials, major energy deals were sealed, changing the regional constellation dramatically. At the same time, the geopolitical shift of the century now starts to bear fruit.

Russia has directly offered to invest in the upcoming Aramco IPO, supporting the efforts of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) to diversify the economy of the kingdom. During the meetings, not only new Saudi investment deals in Russia were sealed, but also the commitment of several Russian investment parties in the Aramco IPO.

After weeks of receiving a hell of a beating in the press (analysts started to doubt that it would ever happen), not only positive news has come from the NYSE and LSE, but also − as expected − from Russian institutions.

Kirill Dmitriev, CEO of the main Russian sovereign wealth fund, Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), stated in Riyadh that he expects that a Russian and Chinese joint investment fund, working in conjunction with several major Russian banks, will be part of the Aramco IPO. He also indicated that other Russian financial institutions and investors are very interested to take a part of the 5 percent of Aramco being offered in the IPO.

These statements are a significant boost for MBS and his IPO advisors, as the participation of a Russia-China investment fund also shows the interest of Chinese parties in the stakes. While Chinese parties are expected to be willing to hand over tens of billions, Dmitriev’s statements have widened the scope. Russian and Chinese parties will not only involve the expected oil and gas companies, but others as well.

In addition to the Aramco IPO, the warm relationship between Moscow and Riyadh, already displayed in the current production cut agreement between OPEC and non-OPEC, now also reaches a level targeted by Putin and MBS last year: a full-fledged investment relationship focusing on the Russian oil and gas sectors, including LNG. The latter has been likely to happen since mid-2017.

Russian sources close to the Kremlin stated to the press that Saudi Aramco, which was already invited before to take part in LNG projects in Russia, will enter into a major investment scheme for Arctic LNG-2. Last year, Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih said that Aramco was invited to invest in the Novatek-led venture. It could be a slip of the tongue, but al-Falih stated at the same time that [this investment deal] would become a part of Aramco’s gas strategy. With a targeted capacity of 18 million tons per year, the project is expected to be onstream in 2023.

The IPO and Artic LNG-2 news partly overshadowed the fact that other major energy deals were also made. Dmitriev told the press that the RDIF, Saudi sovereign wealth fund Public Investment Fund (PIF) and Aramco will soon sign other investment deals.

One of these other deals is investment in Russia’s Eurasia Drilling, a major independent driller. It’s a dream come true for Russian drillers, as they’ve been vying for on- and offshore drilling projects in Saudi Arabia for years, but without success. Even attempts by Putin-linked Gazprom Drilling to enter the Saudi market haven’t been successful until now.

Investment streams aren’t just flowing one way, as Russian parties want to enter the Saudi downstream sector. Russia’s largest petrochemicals giant, Sibur, has a $1 billon deal in the kingdom. In October 2017, Riyadh and Moscow set up an $1 billion energy investment fund.

The creeping-yet-steady cooperation between the former adversaries should be continuously assessed. Even though several Russian oil oligarchs have said that they see Russia soon leaving the OPEC deal, current investment discussions block any hasty decisions.

Russia and Riyadh also have other common interests, mainly related to regional Gulf-based issues, such as Syria, Iran and Iraq. The opening offered by the young Saud Crown Prince MBS is valued by Putin, as it gives Moscow a direct inroad to oil and gas market price setters, while also undermining the historical US dominance in the region.

Since oil and gas are linked to stability or war, the current Russian-Saudi cooperation is also based on these different angles. Energy cooperation will be linked or intertwined with future security arrangements and defense contracts. Aramco’s IPO, LNG and OPEC are paving the way for a possible bearish position in the Kingdom of Oil.

Putin & Saudi King Salman discuss Syria, Qatar by phone

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi King Salman have discussed the situation in Syria following the National Dialogue Congress in Sochi, as well as cooperation between the two countries on the world oil market.

The two leaders talked over the phone on Wednesday, the Kremlin’s press service said.

The Syrian National Dialogue Congress was held in Sochi, Russia, late in January, bringing together over 1,300 delegates representing different parts of Syrian society. The Saudi Arabia-based High Negotiations Committee (HNC), an umbrella body created back in 2016 to represent some of the Syrian rebel groups at the Geneva talks, however, boycotted the event, claiming they would stick solely to “credible political transition” in the UN-sponsored Geneva format instead.

The Congress agreed to create a 150-strong committee to draft a new Constitution for the war-torn country. UN special envoy to Syria Staffan De Mistura, who took part in the Congress, praised this achievement, while Moscow expressed hopes it would “stimulate” and revitalise the Geneva peace process, which has been stalling for years.

The two sides also discussed the situation in the Middle East as a whole, including the ongoing tension between Qatar and other states in the region. “The Russian side stressed that the existing crisis is not conducive to joint efforts in battling the terrorism threat and bringing stability to the Middle East,” the press service stated.

Last June, Qatar found itself at odds with its neighbors, including Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Yemen. The Saudi-led block accused Doha of supporting terrorism and cut diplomatic ties, imposing travel restrictions and an economic blockade on the small-yet-wealthy Gulf state. Qatar denounced the accusations as “lies” and the situation reached a stalemate.

Regional issues aside, the two leaders discussed prospects for cooperation between Russia and Saudi Arabia, including coordinating their activities on oil market and defense sales.

The cooperation will lie within the boundaries of the agreements reached during King Salman’s visit to Russia last October, when Russia and Saudi Arabia-led OPEC have reached a landmark deal on joint oil production cuts. The policy appeared to be fruitful, contributing to bringing the oil price nosedive to a stop and stabilizing the world market.

Russia’s President and the Saudi King expressed “readiness to expand fruitful coordination on the world’s hydrocarbon markets,” according to the Kremlin’s press service, which did not provide any further details.

Russia Blasts US, French ‘Dishonest’ Claims of Not Having Sent Delegates to Sochi Congress

Russia Blasts US, French ‘Dishonest’ Claims of Not Having Sent Delegates to Sochi Congress
TEHRAN (FNA)- Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said following talks with his Belgian counterpart Didier Reynders on Tuesday that Washington and Paris were disingenuous when they claimed that they had not sent their representatives to the Syrian National Dialogue Congress held in Sochi.

Invitations to attend the Sochi Congress as observers were sent to the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (the United States, the United Kingdom, France and China), as well as to Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, TASS reported.

"All the invited (countries), except for our western counterparts, sent their high-ranking representatives to attend the event," the Russian top diplomat noted.

At the same time, in Lavrov’s words, "the United States, France and the United Kingdom were disingenuous when they claimed that they had not sent their representatives."

"All the three countries sent diplomats from their embassies, though they said they would not attend the event as observers but would just work on the sidelines," the Russian Foreign Minister said.

"Nevertheless, a reasonable circle of players was present in Sochi, which means that the event encouraged our counterparts. Further developments depend on [United Nations Special Envoy for Syria] Staffan de Mistura. We are grateful to him for taking part in the Congress, he seems to have gained momentum to continue his efforts," Lavrov stressed.

Participants in the Syrian National Dialogue Congress, held in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi in late January, adopted a 12-point statement outlining their positions on their country’s future. The document stipulates that Syria should maintain its sovereignty and territorial integrity, at the same time pointing out that the Syrian people hold the prerogative to determine the country’s future through elections

The Syrians also requested United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres to assist them in setting up a constitutional commission, the mandate of which will be specified at the Geneva talks.

According to the organizers, the Sochi Syrian Congress brought together 1,511 delegates representing all strata of Syrian society. Most of the participants (94.5%) were Arabs but there were also Kurds, Yazidis, Assyrians, Armenians, Circassians, Chechens, Dagestanis, Abkhazians, Turkomans and the Druze. Key regional and global players had been invited to attend the event as observers.

US President Threatens Retaliatory Actions Against China, South Korea

FARSNEWS2018/2/14
US President Threatens Retaliatory Actions Against China, South Korea
TEHRAN (FNA)- US President Donald Trump threatened to impose sanctions on China while vowing to scrap a free trade deal with South Korea.

His threat of action against the two major Asian trading partners came on Tuesday in a speech to a group of Republican and Democratic lawmakers at the White House, Middle East News reported.

Trump accused Beijing of undermining US steel and aluminum industries, saying he was “considering all options,” including tariffs and quotas.

This comes after Trump received two Commerce Department reports about alleged Chinese subsidies for steel and aluminum exports, materials that are essential for industries such as construction, autos and the like.

Meanwhile, China, which produces nearly half of the world’s steel, is accused of flooding the market in order to keep its economy robust at home.

“I will make a decision that reflects the best interests of the United States, including the need to address overproduction in China and other countries,” Trump said.

“They’re dumping and destroying our industry, and destroying the families of workers, and we can’t let that happen,” he added.

Although the president has another two months to make a decision on possible penalizing action, he strongly indicated that he wants to punish Beijing.

Experts, however, say that any such action will prompt China to do the same, raising the specter of a trade war between the world’s two largest economies.

Trump is under pressure at home as he has not been able to deliver on his campaign promise of being a champion of America’s Rust Belt.

Also, he has done nothing to fix the national trade deficit, which has widened even further during his first year in office, up 12 percent to $566 billion.

On Tuesday, there were members among the group who expressed support for the president, but also others who warned that action against China could increase prices and hurt US manufacturing outside the steel and aluminum sectors.

“Mr. President, I think we do need to be careful here, that we don’t start a reciprocal battle on tariffs,” Republican Senator Roy Blunt said.

“You know, we make aluminum and we make steel” he said, adding that “But we buy a lot of aluminum and we buy a lot of steel as well.”

Trump also took a shot at South Korea amid anger at signs of improvement in relations between Seoul and Pyongyang.

He described the 2012 free trade deal with South Korea as “a disaster,” saying that Washington would renegotiate a “fair deal” or scrap it altogether.

The Trump administration began talks to renegotiate the United States-Korea (KORUS) trade agreement in July, asserting that it was lopsided as America’s bilateral trade deficit had ballooned under it.

“We have a very, very bad trade deal with Korea,” Trump said, adding that “For us it produced nothing but losses.”

弁護士がトランプと性的な関係にあったアダルト映画女優に13万ドルの支払いを認める

FARSNEWS2018/2/14
US President Lawyer Admits He Paid $130,000 to Adult Film Actress
TEHRAN (FNA)- US President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer confirmed he paid $130,000 to an adult film actress who allegedly had a sexual relationship with the President.

Michael Cohen, who worked as a counsel to the Trump Organization for more than a decade, said in a statement to The New York Times that he paid the money to Stephanie Clifford out of his own pocket.

“Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,” Cohen added.

“The payment to Ms. Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone,” he stressed.

However, Cohen refused to answer several follow-up questions, including whether Trump had known that he made the payment, or why he paid such money or whether he had made similar payments to other people.

The news, which was initially rebutted by Cohen, first broke last month by The Wall Street Journal which said the lawyer brokered payment to Clifford, who Trump met at a golf event in 2006, a year after his marriage to Melania.

In the fall of 2016, Clifford began talking with ABC News for a story involving an extramarital affair with Trump, but Cohen arranged to pay her to stop her from going public.

Following his acknowledgement of the news, officials with Common Cause tried to determine whether the Trump Organization or someone else made the payment.

“The complaint alleges that I somehow violated campaign finance laws by facilitating an excess, in-kind contribution,” Cohen said in his statement, adding that “The allegations in the complaint are factually unsupported and without legal merit, and my counsel has submitted a response to the F.E.C.”

So far, at least 16 women have accused Trump of unwanted sexual advances, allegations Trump dismisses.

Weeks before the presidential election last November, The Washington Post released a tape in which Trump boasted about how he sexually assaulted women because he was powerful.

Iraq's Security Cooperation with Iran, Russia, Syria

Hashd Al-Shaabi Official Stresses Iraq's Security Cooperation with Iran, Russia, Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- Head of Hashd al-Shaabi (Iraqi popular forces) Committee Faleh al-Fayyad announced that his country is collaborating with Iran, Russia and Syria in security issues.

"Iraq has security cooperation with the Islamic Republic of Iran, Russia and Syria thorough a coordination center," Fayyad said, addressing a press conference in Iraq on Wednesday.

"The security center coordinates cooperation among the four countries in intelligence and security fields and establishment of security," he added.

His remarks came days after the Quadrilateral Intelligence Center of Iran, Russia, Iraq and Syria held a meeting in Baghdad to broaden cooperation in the fight against terrorism.

During the meeting in the capital city earlier this month, the participants discussed activities of the four countries in the security and intelligence fields and presented security reports on countering terrorism.

Tehran, Moscow, Baghdad and Damascus also stressed the need to expand cooperation between the four countries in the fight against the ISIL terrorists and other terrorist groups.

During the meeting, Head of Iraq’s Military Intelligence Organization Major General Saad Mezher Al-Alaq described as effective the role of this center in fighting against the ISIL terrorist group.

General Al-Alaq, meantime, warned about the new measures of the ISIL terrorist group and other terrorist groups within the framework of new terrorist groups.

Meantime, Iran's military attaché Mostafa Moradian said that one of the center's most important activities is presenting information about the ISIL and other terrorists’ bases in Iraq and Syria to Iraqi forces.

The Quadrilateral Intelligence Center with members of the military attachés of Iran, Russia, Iraq and Syria, is headed by the Iraqi Military Information Organization since its foundation in 2015.

米国はシリアの土地の大部分に「疑似国家」を創出しようとしている

US trying to create ‘quasi-state’ on large part of Syria’s land – Lavrov
The US has likely taken a “course to create a quasi-state” in the Kurdish SDF militia-held regions of Syria, despite the proclaimed adherence to the territorial integrity of the country, Russia’s FM Sergey Lavrov said.

The US activities in Syria are driven by undertaking “dangerous, unilateral steps” instead of trying to “achieve a common understanding” between all the parties, Lavrov told reporters on Tuesday.

He warned that Washington’s true goal might be the partitioning of Syria. The recent steps of Washington, including the creation of the so-called Border Security Force (BSF), operating under the Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), have prompted even more questions in Moscow.

“We’ve raised these questions multiple times but have not received a coherent answer besides a general motto ‘Don’t’ worry we’re for the territorial integrity of Syria.’ In reality, it looks otherwise though,” Lavrov stated.

The recent US steps "look more and more like a part of a course to create a quasi-state of sorts on a large chunk of Syrian territory,” Foreign Minister said. “Autonomous, independent from Damascus governing bodies are being created in this territory, money keeps flowing there to keep them functional. Law enforcement, created there, is receiving weaponry.”

The UN should pay attention to this situation and take steps to prevent any “external players” from “jeopardizing the principles of reconciliation set by the Resolution 2254,” Lavrov said. Such actions on part of the UN are especially important after the reconciliation process received a “powerful impulse from the Syrian National Dialogue Congress in Sochi.” The reconciliation process should definitely include representatives of Syria’s Kurdish minority, the official stressed.

“Russia has been from the very beginning and remains a supporter of a direct Kurdish participation in all the efforts on Syrian reconciliation. Kurds are an inseparable part of the Syrian society,” the official stressed.

Earlier on Tuesday, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson confirmed the US plans to allocate $200 million to “stabilize” SDF-controlled areas of Syria. The top US diplomat made the announcement during a meeting of foreign ministers of the US-led anti-Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) coalition in Kuwait.

It’s doubtful, though, that the funding would go to actually “stabilizing” these territories, but might actually be spent on additional arms for the US-backed militias in Syria, which would contribute to escalating of the conflict instead, the director of the British think-tank Gnosos, Middle East expert Ammar Waqqaf believes.

“The real thing is, we believe, that the United States is preparing the ground for a long-term separation, or a permanent, actually separation of the eastern and the north eastern part of Syria from the Syrian state under the guise of the Kurdish-led democratic sort of state,” Waqqaf told RT. “The $200 million that are being pledged today are not going to bring back electricity and water to the devastated Raqqa, we believe, but probably bring more weapons to the Kurds, which is going to put some pressure on other minorities in the region to accept Kurdish supremacy under the United States’ umbrella.”

米軍のシリア人部隊殺害で被害者にロシア兵もいたという説を米ロ当局が否定

RT2018/2/14
Neither Kremlin nor Pentagon confirm reports of alleged Russian losses to US strike in Syria
The Kremlin and the Pentagon do not have any information on the alleged deaths of Russians during a US attack in Syria, respective officials have told journalists. Reports of the supposed fatalities have emerged on social media.

The reports attribute the alleged casualties to a recent US airstrike and put the figures between 100 and over 600.

“We urge not to use media reports as a primary source in that case. Let’s understand that there are a lot of our compatriots in many countries worldwide, and it’s quite difficult to have detailed information. All the media reports, though, need to be verified.”

“We recommend in that case to reach out to the Defense Ministry, since here we’re dealing with information published in media. We can only operate data on the servicemen of Russian Armed Forces, who take part in the operation of the Russian Airspace forces supporting the Syrian Army. We don’t have information on any other Russians who might be in Syria,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
US Defense Secretary James Mattis also said he has no information that Russian army servicemen were among the casualties following the US airstrike.

“I don't have any reporting -- that some Russians -- non-Russian federation soldiers, but Russian contractors were among the casualties. I can't give you anything on that. We have not received that word at Central Command or at the Pentagon,” he told a media briefing on Tuesday.

Mattis called the situation “perplexing,” noting that the reported attack on the SDF base, which allegedly brought about the deadly American retaliation, “makes no sense, it does not appear to be anything coordinated by the Russians.”

Earlier on Monday, one of the Russian presidential candidates, Grigory Yavlinsky, urged Russian President Vladimir Putin to provide a “report” on “numerous” Russian nationals that were allegedly killed in Syria. The veteran Russian politician, who has been unsuccessfully running for president several times since the 1990s, did not provide any source for the claims, apart from media and social media reports.

“Over the past few days, all the world media and multiple social media sources are reporting on numerous Russian citizens killed while fighting in Syria,” Yavlinsky said in a statement, urging Russian leadership to explain the alleged casualties, and even to end the Syrian campaign altogether.

The Kremlin spokesman said he doubts Yavlinsky's statement is based on "any more reliable sources" than unconfirmed media reports.

シリア人が100人以上も殺害されたとの説があります。そうなると前回のシリア兵大量殺害に次ぐ人的損害であり、何らかの報復があるでしょう。正面からの報復でなく関係者だけに分かるような、報復を受けた側でも損害をオープンにできないような形で行われます。

Erdogan threatens US with 'Ottoman slap,' says all NATO countries created equal
Washington could soon receive the "Ottoman slap," Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned, while also stating that all members of NATO are equal with the US.


While speaking to the ruling Justice and Development (AK) party in Ankara on Tuesday, Erdogan referenced a recent remark by Lt. Gen. Paul E. Funk, the top US commander in the US-led coalition against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), who said that Turkey would face a sharp response if it struck Manbij, Syria.

“Those who say they will give a sharp response if hit, have clearly never got the Ottoman slap in their lives,” Erdogan said, referring to a half-legendary Turkish martial move that involves a potent open-palm hit, resulting in a one-hit knockout or even skull fractures and death.

Erdogan also addressed the NATO alliance, of which both Turkey and the US are members. "What kind of NATO membership is this? What kind of NATO alliance is this?" he asked. "As president of Turkey, [I say] NATO is not equal to the US, all countries [in the alliance] are equals to the US."

His remarks come at a time of increasingly strained relations between the US and Turkey. On Monday, Ankara sought clarity from the US while threatening to break ties. Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusogli told journalists that his country sought "concrete steps" from Washington, adding that US actions are the reason for "missing trust" between the two NATO allies.

Meanwhile, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Tuesday that Turkey had briefed the alliance about its operations in Syria's Afrin last week. He went on to express hope that such briefings would continue.

"Turkey has briefed NATO on the operation Olive Branch, they did so last week, and I have been in regular contact with the Turkish leadership, including with president Erdogan regarding the situation in Syria and the operation Olive Branch. I expect Turkey to continue to brief allies," Stoltenberg said.

The NATO secretary-general also acknowledged Turkey's "legitimate security concerns," and its right to address those concerns. "But they should do that in a proportionate and measured way," he said.

Turkey’s officials, however, do not seem to be satisfied with the ambiguous statements from their NATO allies anymore. On Monday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has harshly responded to a similar statement on understanding Ankara’s “legitimate security concerns” produced by the US Defence Secretary James Mattis.

“Our demands from the US are clear and have already been conveyed. We no longer want to hear about promises; we want to hear about concrete steps. Trust needs to be rebuilt so we can start to talk about some issues,” Cavusoglu said on Monday.

US Dispatches More Military Aid to Kurds in Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- Washington has sent another military convoy to the Kurdish forces in Northeastern Syria after the US Department of Defense allocated a hefty amount of budget for training and equipping Kurdish militias, a militant-affiliated website reported on Tuesday.

The Arabic-language Enab Baladi reported that the US convoy was dispatched to the Kurdish-held regions in Syria's Hasaka via Simalka border-crossing at border with Iraq.

Enab Baladi reported that the convoy, containing fifty trucks, has arrived in Rojava in Northern Syria.

A Commander of the People's Protection Units (YPG) said last week that the US was to provide support for his forces in the town of Manbij in Northern Aleppo despite Ankara's warning to Washington about the Turkish army's imminent operation in the Kurdish-held town.

Al-Sharq al-Awsat daily quoted Siban Hamou as saying that Washington informed the YPG forces that it would not allow the Turkish army and Ankara-backed militants to enter Manbij.

He further said that the Turkish army had supposed at the beginning of its military operation in Northern Syria that it would materialize its military objectives in a few days but now after over two weeks the Ankara forces did not gain any of their desired results.

Hamou went on to say that the Kurds destroyed over 10 tanks of the Turkish army and a larger number of tanks that were operating under the Ankara-backed militants, adding that Damascus provided the Kurds with medical, rescue and humanitarian aids.

Turkish FM: Ties with US at 'Very Critical Point’
TEHRAN (FNA)- Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu warned on Monday, strained by American support for a terrorist group in Syria, Turkish relations with the US are close to breaking.

“Ties with the US are at very critical point. We will either fix these relations or they will break completely,” Cavusoglu told reporters on the sidelines of a Turkish-African meeting in Istanbul, Anadolu Agency reported.

“We want concrete steps [from US]. The missing trust needs to be restored. The reason for that missing trust is the US," he said.

Criticizing US ties with the YPG/PKK terror group in Syria, he added that “The US is not touching Daesh members in Syria as an excuse to continue working with YPG/PKK terrorist group.”

The US has long supported the PYD/PKK as a “reliable ally” in its fight against Daesh, over the strong objections of Ankara, which has documented that it is the Syrian branch of the terrorist PKK.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist group by the US, EU, and Turkey.

On Jan. 20, Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch to remove PYD/PKK and Daesh terrorists from Afrin.

According to the Turkish General Staff, the operation aims to establish security and stability along Turkey’s borders and the region as well as protect Syrians from terrorist oppression and cruelty.

The operation is being carried out under the framework of Turkey’s rights based on international law, UN Security Council resolutions, its self-defense rights under the UN charter, and respect for Syria's territorial integrity, it said.

The military also added that the "utmost care" is being used to avoid harming civilians.

"It is important to continue making good results by further livening up the warm climate of reconciliation and dialogue created by the strong desire and common will of the North and the South with the Winter Olympics as a momentum," Kim was quoted in English by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) as saying in a meeting with the delegation.

Wrapping up their trip last week, the delegation led by Kim Yong-nam, the chairman of the Presidium of the North Korean assembly, reported details of their South Korean visit to Kim, the KCNA said.

Kim Yo-jong, the leader's powerful sister, relayed her brother's invitation to South Korean President Moon Jae-in to visit the North during her trip to the South as a member of the delegation.

Seoul won’t rush to renew joint military drills with US as new intra-Korean summit solidifies
South Korean President Moon Jae-in reportedly rejected a call from Japan to quickly resume joint US-Korean military drills. Moon has been invited to visit Pyongyang for what may become the first top-level summit in over a decade.

At a bilateral summit on Friday, Moon called on the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to wait before resuming the drills, Yonhap reported, citing a government official. The drills have been paused for the duration of the Winter Olympics, as part of Seoul’s attempt to mend relations with Pyongyang. North Korea considers the drills a major threat to its national security, saying they may be used to conceal a build-up for an invasion.

According to the report, Abe argued that the time to delay exercises scheduled for spring was not right and that Pyongyang had to change its behavior before receiving concessions.

“I understand what Prime Minister Abe said is not to delay South Korea-U.S. military drills until there is progress in the denuclearization of North Korea. But the issue is about our sovereignty and intervention in our domestic affairs,” Moon told the Japanese leader, according to the unnamed official.“The president said it was not appropriate for the prime minister to directly mention the issue.”

North Korea’s successful development last year of a ballistic missile, which is apparently capable of reaching the US mainland, as well as carrying a small thermonuclear device, triggered a major security crisis on the Korean Peninsula. As US President Donald Trump threatened to use military force to destroy Pyongyang’s nuclear capabilities, a new left-wing government in Seoul took several symbolic steps to deflate the tension, including agreeing to have a joint athletic delegation with North Korea at the Olympics.

This week, Moon received an invitation from his northern counterpart, Kim Jong-un to visit Pyongyang for a top-level summit. If accepted, it would be the first diplomatic event of its kind since 2007, when the government of President Roh Moo-hyun in Seoul attempted to mend relations as part of the Sunshine Policy.

Roh’s successor, Lee Myung-bak, came from the other side of the political spectrum and took a hardline stance on intra-Korean relations, as did President Park Geun-hye, who came from the same conservative camp. After Park was impeached, Moon was elected partially on the promise of reviving the Sunshine Policy.

Seoul Won’t Rush to Renew Joint Military Drills with US as New Intra-Korean Summit Solidifies

Pence: US Is Finally Ready to Talk to North Korea
TEHRAN (FNA)- US President Donald Trump’s administration decided that it is ready to talk to North Korea, apparently without preconditions.

“The maximum pressure campaign is going to continue and intensify,” US Vice President Mike Pence revealed to The Washington Post on his return from South Korea, adding “No pressure comes off until they are actually doing something that… represents a meaningful step toward denuclearization. But if you want to talk, we’ll talk,” Daily Caller reported.

Before he arrived in South Korea, Pence stressed that the diplomatic and economic isolation of North Korea must continue after the Olympics, a view inconsistent with that of South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who hopes to see the Olympics lead to more dialogue and improved inter-Korean relations.

When Secretary of State Rex Tillerson proposed talks without preconditions a few months ago, the White House immediately responded that the US is not ready for such negotiations.

That no longer appears to be the case, as the US seems to be finally embracing the strategy of maximum pressure and engagement first mentioned early last year.

Pence and Moon reportedly worked out their differences in bilateral meetings during his visit. Moon emphasized the need for engagement but assured the Vice President that North Korea will not be given any relief from the maximum pressure campaign until it begins pursuing denuclearization.

It is unclear exactly what steps North Korea must take to relieve the pressure.

“I don’t know. That’s why you have to have talks,” Pence said when asked what Pyongyang needs to do.

Moon told Pence, who was in contact with Trump throughout his trip, that he informed the North Korean officials of the desperate need to engage the US in dialogue.

The US may be open to talks with the North, however, Pyongyang’s willingness to engage Washington in talks is less clear, especially given the demand for denuclearization, that runs contrary to North Korea’s assertion that it should be recognized as a nuclear state.

The new sanctions Pence announced in Japan may also complicate the situation.

In South Korea, Pence and the North Korean delegation avoided one another like the plague. There were no handshakes, no friendly smiles, no interaction whatsoever.

状況はさらに進んで、福島の嘘に気がつき始めた人たちを囲い込むために、幸せな被爆、幸せな死は、政策として商売として推進されているようですね。

被爆の影響に科学的データに基づく根拠がないからと、平気で積極的に被爆してデータを提供する献身的な被験者には何も言うことはありませんが、福島を見殺しにし、税金を使い、さらに余分なカネまで払って死ぬ幸せとは、明らかに不幸を幸せと誤認させる詐欺ですね。

あなたも一緒に死にましょうと、幸せに死ねる毒薬があちこちで売られていて、手軽に買えるようなものです。

そう考えると、この日本は相当シュールな異次元の社会として世界から浮いているわけです。日本スゴいは本当ですね。

クルドはアフリンの戦いの場をトルコに広げるつもり

米国の支援を受けたクルドがトルコに攻め込む形です。

FARSNEWS2018/2/13
Russian Sources: Kurds Planning to Escalate Afrin Battle in Turkey
TEHRAN (FNA)- Russian media sources confirmed that the Kurdish fighters have received new weapons as they are resisting against the Ankara-backed militants in Afrin region, adding that they intend to likely spread the clashes to Turkey.

The Arabic service of RT news channel quoted the Russian Svobodnaya Pressa news website as reporting that as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has threatened to intensify attacks against Afrin in Aleppo province, the situation in Northwestern Syria is exacerbating.

It added that the Kurds will not suffice to resistance against the Turkish army and will launch counter attacks and spread the clashes to the Turkish areas bordering with Syria.

Meantime, Karim Yildrim, a Turkish military analyst, disclosed that the Kurds now hold new weapons enabling them to resist against the Turkish army's most advanced weapons.

The Turkish army had earlier warned the Kurds against using different types of US and European arms.

A Kurdish media outlet reported on Tuesday that the Turkish Army's artillery units pounded for the first time the Central part of the town of Afrin in Northwestern Aleppo, inflicting an unspecified number of casualties on the civilian population.

Hawar news reported that the artillery units of the Turkish army and Ankara-backed militants opened heavy fire at populated neighborhoods in the Central part of Afrin.

It went on to say that the artillery units also targeted Afrin Hospital inside the town, killing and wounding a number of civilians, including several children. Yet, the news outlet said the exact number of casualties is not clear yet.

Well-informed sources reported on Monday that a new convoy of the Turkish Army vehicles and equipment and hundreds of Ankara-backed militants were forwarded to Afrin region in Northwestern Aleppo to join Operation Olive Brach against Kurds.

The sources reported that a military convoy of the Turkish army left Kafr Lusin border-crossing for Northern Idlib heading towards the town of Salwah at the opposite side of the towns of Afrin and Dar al-Izzah in Western Aleppo.

SHELL出身オランダ外務大臣が真っ赤なウソを認めて即辞任

RT2018/2/13
Dutch FM resigns after admitting lie about meeting Putin
Dutch Foreign Minister Halbe Zijlstra has resigned, a day after he admitted lying about overhearing Russia’s President Vladimir Putin. In 2016 Zijlstra alleged Putin had in 2006 expressed ambitions to create a “Greater Russia.”

The official admitted that his credibility had been damaged by the ongoing scandal to such an extent that his position had become untenable.

Halbe Zijlstra announced his resignation in an emotional speech to the House of Representatives. Zijlstra described the “Greater Russia” affair as the “biggest mistake” in his political career, adding that the country deserves a Foreign Minister who is beyond reproach.

RT2018/2/12


ウソをつくのは日本の総理大臣だけではない。オランダ外相のウソもひどいものです。オランダやベルギーの閣僚は目立とうとしてか、しばしばウソをつきます。欧州には紳士だけがいるわけではない。

Dutch Foreign Minister Halbe Zijlstra has admitted that he lied when he claimed to have heard President Vladimir Putin describing an ambition to unify Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, the Baltic states and Kazakhstan as a single country.

Zijlstra claimed at a party conference in 2016 that he had overheard Putin outlining the grand plan for a “Greater Russia” in 2006 during a gathering of businessmen. He was working for the oil company, Shell, at the time.

In the original retelling of the story, Zijlstra said he had been in a back room of a dacha (country house) when he heard Putin define “Great Russia” as “Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and the Baltic states,” adding that “Kazakhstan was nice to have.”

The story was questioned by the newspaper Volkskrant, however, which discovered from Zijlstra’s colleagues that he had not been at the 2006 business meeting in Russia, despite being part of the Shell delegation. When confronted about this, the minister acknowledged lying and claimed he was simply trying to protect a source.

“I made the decision that this is an important geopolitical story with serious implications,” he said. “I put myself in the story to make sure that the revelations weren’t about the person who was actually there. Because that could have had implications for him or his company.”

Zijlstra insisted the hearsay of which he spoke was true, but would not name the person from whom he heard it. The newspaper itself says the source was Jeroen van der Veer, who was Shell CEO at the time, citing two informed sources.

The revelation comes at an awkward moment for the foreign minister. Zijlstra, who assumed his current office in October 2017, is due to visit Moscow this week to meet with his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov. Geert Wilders’ opposition right-wing Party for Freedom has called for a parliamentary debate about Zijlstra’s integrity before he leaves. Zijlstra told Volkskrant that he informed Prime Minister Mark Rutte about his conduct several weeks ago.

“Greater Russia” is an amorphous term usually used to describe the historic core of the Russian state, roughly corresponding to the territory of medieval Russia in the 16th century – the beginning of the reign of Ivan the Terrible, who was the first of Russia’s great expansionist rulers. The word “greater” is meant as a description of spiritual significance rather than physical size. The same term was applied to the core territories of some other countries, like Greater Armenia, Greater Walachia or Greater Poland.

シリア外務副大臣 イスラエルにその攻撃の都度驚きを与えると威嚇

Israel threatens to ‘bite hard’ after downing of its fighter jet in Syria
Tel Aviv has vowed to defend its interests without any limitations in the wake of heightened tensions with Tehran over the recent strikes in Syria. At the same time Damascus warns Israel of “more surprises” in case of new attacks.

“We will respond to every provocation, we will continue to protect our vital security interests,” Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said on Tuesday as cited by local media.“To paraphrase the known saying, ‘This is not the time to bark, it’s time to bite’ − and we’ll bite hard,” the minister warned, adding that he hopes it will not come to that.

It was the first time Liberman had spoken about the February 10 events. Tensions between Israel and Iran have rapidly flared up since Saturday, when an alleged Iranian drone infiltration into the Israeli airspace triggered the Israeli Air Force’s retaliatory strikes in Syria, the biggest in years. Amid the cross-border escalation, Israel lost an F-16 fighter jet to enemy fire for the first time in 35 years.

The defense minister stressed that “there are no limitations” when it comes to responding to provocations against Israel. Earlier, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened to “strike back” and hinted that Tel Aviv does not intend to change its stance following “a serious blow to the armies of Iran and Syria.”

While Tel Aviv maintains that Iran eyes attacking the country using Syrian bases, Tehran said no “Israeli mistake” will be left without response and the recent incident challenged Israeli air superiority, thus shifting the balance of power in the region.

“The claim [made] by the Zionists [that they had carried out sorties] to damage Iranian bases in Syria is a lie,” Ali Shamkhani, secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, told Al Quds Al Arabi on Sunday.

Meanwhile the Syrian government has warned Israel against carrying out attacks, declaring its aim to surprise “the aggressor.”

“Have full confidence the aggressor will be greatly surprised because it thought this war − this war of attrition Syria has been exposed to for years − had made it incapable of confronting attacks,” assistant foreign minister Ayman Sussan said during a Damascus news conference on Tuesday as cited by Reuters.



“God willing they will see more surprises whenever they try to attack Syria,” Sussan added.

アルヌスラ・ホワイトヘルメットがシリアで化学兵器による挑発行為を企てているとの情報

RT2018/2/13
Tip-off received on Al-Nusra, White Helmets plotting chemical weapons provocation in Syria – Moscow
Russia’s Center for Reconciliation in Syria says it's been warned that Jabhat Al-Nusra terrorists brought in chlorine containers to a local village, where they aimed to work with the White Helmets to stage “a provocation.”

Late on Monday, the center received a phone call from a resident of the village of Serakab in Idlib province about the planned incident.
According to the source, on the afternoon of February 12, rebels from the Jabhat Al-Nusra (Al-Nusra Front) terrorist organization brought three cars packed with more than 20 cylinders of chlorine along with personal protective equipment to Serakab.

Additionally, according to the caller, representatives of the local branch of the White Helmets, wearing individual means of protection, conducted rehearsals of "giving first aid" to "local residents" who were supposedly suffering from poisoning.

The information received from the Idlib resident raised a red flag for members of the Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria.

According to the center, this indicates that Jabhat Al-Nusra terrorists along with the White Helmets are plotting another “provocation” with the use of poisonous substances in Idlib province, aimed at accusing the Syrian authorities of using chemical weapons against local residents.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said in October that the notorious Idlib chemical incident in April, which was used by the US as a pretext to strike Syria’s Shayrat Airbase, might have been staged.

Presenting photographic evidence of a crater from the scene of the chemical incident, the head of the Non-Proliferation and Arms Control Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Mikhail Ulyanov, told a UN briefing that the bomb which dispersed the deadly chemical agent was most likely detonated on the ground and not on impact from a Syrian airstrike. “Most likely, an improvised explosive device was located on the surface,” Ulyanov said.

The Khan Shaykhun chemical incident occurred on April 4, 2017, in the town of the same name in the Idlib Governorate, in an area that was under the control of Al-Nusra Front terrorists. The sarin gas attack, which allegedly claimed the lives of between 74 to 100 civilians, reportedly took place when the town was struck by the Syrian Air Force. Washington rushed to blame Damascus, despite the denial of the Syrian government, which destroyed all of its sarin stockpiles under the deal brokered between Russia and the US in 2013. Even though there was a lack of any hard evidence, shortly after the incident US President Donald Trump authorized the launch of 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at Shayrat Airbase, from where US intelligence claimed the chemical attack was launched.

In late October, the US Department of State finally admitted that militants linked to Al-Nusra Front are indeed carrying out terrorist attacks using chemical weapons in Syria. Russia’s Defense Ministry noted that a precedent had been set by Washington’s acknowledgement of the situation.

“This is the first official recognition by the State Department not only of the presence, but the very use of chemical weapons by Al-Nusra terrorists to carry out terrorist attacks, which we repeatedly warned about,” General Igor Konashenkov, spokesman for the ministry, said.

The White Helmets have been long hailed by the Western media as “peace-bearing heroes” who save human lives. However, the group has been dogged by allegations of having ties with terrorist groups.

“The White Helmets not only feel at home on territories controlled by Al-Nusra Front and Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS], but also openly express positive attitudes towards them, providing them with information and even financial assistance,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in April 2017.

空間線量率測定値の記録・グラフ化では GMCLogger : ガイガーカウンタ・データロガー の安定性・応用性が群を抜く

この3か月ほど、空間線量率測定値の記録・グラフ化の試みに時間を費やしてきました。

試した測定器とソフトの組み合わせは、次の表のとおりです。グラフ化して遠隔地から管理人が閲覧・監視できるようネットに掲載するのが目的です。

この目的に沿って作られたGM-10の付属ソフトの完成度が高いです。データを蓄積し、グラフを描いてそれをPNGで画像化し、FTPでサーバー送信まで一気通貫でやってくれます。



管理人はスティックパソコンにGM-10のコードをつないで24時間連続運転しています。オートサインイン、スタートアップにソフトを置いてあるためWindowsソフトの更新があっても自動で再起動して復帰し、稼働を続けます。

その他のソフトにはFTPの機能がありませんので、ShareXを併用しています。この組み合わせですとShareXでどの部分をキャプチャーするか指定しなければならず、自動で再起動しても一手間かかります。

グラフの表示期間、データの保存、ソフトの安定性、データを取れる測定器の幅広さなどどれをとっても、フリーソフトのGMCLoggerが優れています。

GMCLoggerの画面、MAZURのパルス信号を使ってグラフを描かせています。334cpmを1μSv/hと置いていますが、330cpm=1μSv/hが適当なところでしょう。


前回よりも試用した測定器が一つ増えています。あまり知られていないRDS20Aです。GM管まで国産のユニークな測定器で発売当初2万円もしました。最近になってようやく手の出せる価格まで低下してきました。

この器械はとても面白いです。何台か並べておくとテンデンバラバラの値を示します。GM管が小さく検出する放射線数が少ないからでしょうか。

他の測定グラフ作画関係のフリーソフトもそうですが、日本では測定したデータを一般向けに公開するという意識が薄いんですね。測定器を持っている人は自分のために持っているのであって他人の被ばく回避のためではない。

自分が持っている測定器だけでは、その人を取り巻く広域の空間線量率の変化が分からなく、防御のための情報としては不足なのですが。

リアルタイム測定の花形は、これまではGM-10でした。ですが、これは高価で一般の人には手が出ません。しかし、上に書いたように様々な測定器を使って測定値のグラフを描かせることができます。

測定器の発するピッというパルス音を拾うのに感度の低い格安のマイクと音を遮るビニール袋を使います。これは実用新案!だと自分では考えているのです。

運悪く不幸で可哀想な私になった

2018年02月09日 2018/1人口動態速報 横浜が大変なことになっているに寄せられたぷうさんとSYさんのコメント。週末の夜、見識ある大人はグラスを片手にこんな風に語り合うのです。私も一杯飲もう! 女性もどうぞ参加してください。

ぷうさん:
問題は、内部被曝が存在しないγ世界線において、どう見ても初期被曝か内部被曝の影響によると思われる疾病の増加、人口動態の悪化が見られはじめた時に、これをどう処理するのか? ということです。

不安なもの、不快なものを、無意識下に抑圧することによって精神の平衡を保とうとすると、神経症になりますよ! ということは、100年前にフロイトというエロい人が指摘しています。さらに、そうした個人的な無意識の問題が、社会全体の集合的意識に拡大して、国家レベルでの問題になる、ということは、弟子のエロい人、ユングさんが指摘しています。

不安や不快に対しては、それを明らかにして、理解し、直面して、合理的な対処を行うべし! というのが、フロイトさんやユングさんの処方箋になるわけです。

というわけで、結局、どこかでγ世界線からα+β世界線へリープするしかないんですよね。連続的に、徐々に理解して、世界線を移動することは不可能で、どこかで内部被曝の存在を作業仮説として受け入れるか? あるいは、死ぬまでγ世界線のなかで、「なんでだろう?」と思いながら、内部被曝以外の病因を探し続けて、対処療法に終始しながら、最後は火葬場の煙突から離脱するか?

いや、「内部被曝という言葉を使用しないで無視すれば、内部被曝は存在しなくなる」というのであれば、どんなに楽か? でも、自分の視界から消えると、認知的にもそれが存在しなくなる、というのは、「いないいないばあ」遊びが成立する乳児の発達レベルなんですよね。

日本の科学者、医者、教師って、認知的には乳児レベルの発達段階なのか? というのが、最近になって思い知った驚きの事実です。

SYさん:
気にしない人の認識は、基本的に他人事です。ガンが増えても、突然死があっても、葬式が増えても、せいぜい気をつけなくっちゃ(何を?どう?)ぐらいのことです。全ては運、確率の問題で、自分は確率の大きい方の一人であって、小さい方の事象が自分に確定的に降りかかることは想定していません。たとえそうなっても因果関係には気づきません。ただ運悪く不幸で可哀想な私になったという認識です。

実際、無意識下に入ってさえいないレベルだと思います。普通とか常識という認識の範囲に(大きめに?)括られているのです。統計の数字もたいした意味をなさないでしょう。人口が半減しても、何も起こらない、普段どおりの生活認識が続くのです、たぶん。(ふと新井素子の「大きな壁の中と外」を思い出した。結末は真逆だが)

それは昔も今も変らないと思います。矛盾に何となくでも気がついて苦しくなり、フロイトやユングが治療対象とした人たちがいったどれだけいたのか、全体から見れば極僅かだと思います。α+βの世界は元々とても狭いのです。

日本の知性を担っているはずの人たちが、職業上いないいないバーの世界の住人であることは明らかです。プライベートなところは分かりません。たぶん使い分けて、神経症レベルの苦痛を日々味わっていると思いますが、一応それで飯を食っているのですから、表には出しにくいでしょうね。

横浜にてさん:
ぷうさんやSYさんのおっしゃること、本当にごもっともです。

放射能の怖さを訴えたら、「お前は精神病か新興宗教!」と言った家族がいよいよ深刻な腰痛と治療済だった歯が何本かだめになることが続いても食べ物に気をつけようという気がサラサラ無いのは、私には理解できない世界です。

原爆で生き残った人たちが、ケガなどせずに元気だった人が突然死んでいくことが続いたら「次は自分かもしれない・・」といつも不安に思いながら生きてきたのに、今の日本人は「自分は絶対大丈夫」と思って生きている。

いつの頃からか朝目が覚めたと思っているこの世界が夢の中なのではないか?思いながら暮らしています。

自分のまわりを見ると、放射能が他人事と思える人は、北朝鮮や韓国をバカにしたり・・という層とも重なるのではないかと思われます。

あともう少し、何とか生きる努力をしていけば、放射能他人事の人や、ヘイトスピーチ礼賛の人が随分淘汰されてすこ〜し良い世の中になってくれればと思います。

家族が全員無事なんていう人は、初期に海外に移住された方々くらいしかいなくなるのでしょうね。

一人ひとり、気をたしかに持って生き残っていきましょう。
それが、残された時間で少しずつマシな世の中を作る第一歩かと。
