    US warns N Korea will be destroyed if threats continue

    World News: WASHINGTON, Donald Trump s administration ramped up the pressure on North Korea on Sunday ahead of a week of high-stakes diplomacy at the United Nations, warning Pyongyang will be "destroyed" if it refuses to end its "reckless" nuclear and ballistic missile drive. With US officials and their allies scrambling to find ways to contain an increasingly belligerent Pyongyang, the US president will address the UN General Assembly on Tuesday and then confer Thursday with his Japanese and South Korean counterparts on the sidelines of the meeting. Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-In spoke by phone Saturday night and pledged "stronger pressure" on Kim Jong-Un s regime, the South s presidential office said, adding that the North must be made to realize that "further provocation" would put it on a "path of collapse." The Security Council last Monday imposed a new raft of sanctions on North Korea -- but their impact depends largely on whether China, Pyongyang s ally and main economic partner, will fully implement them and on Russia, which is hosting tens of thousands of North Korean workers. Washington s ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, kept up the rhetorical pressure ahead of the upcoming meetings in New York, asserting that if the North should pose a serious threat to the US or its allies, "North Korea will be destroyed." Trump s earlier warning he would rain "fire and fury" on a recalcitrant North Korea, she said, was "not an empty threat." World News

    Indian PM Modi inaugurates controversial dam project


    World News
    : MUMBAI, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated India s biggest dam on Sunday, ignoring warnings from environment groups that hundreds of thousands of people will lose their livelihoods. The controversial Sardar Sarovar Dam on the Narmada river in the country s western state of Gujarat that will provide power and water to three big states was dedicated to the people of India by Narendra Modi. The project has been beset by controversies since the laying of the foundation stone by Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru in 1961. The construction of the project began in 1987. The dam is the second biggest dam in the world after the Grand Coulee Dam in the United States. Ahead of the inauguration Modi said in a tweet, “This project will benefit lakhs of farmers and help fulfill people’s aspirations.” (1 lakh = 100,000) The dam is expected to provide water to 9,000 villages and the power generated from the dam would be shared among three states – Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Gujarat. The Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA), led by social activist Medha Patkar, has been protesting against the project, raising several environmental concerns. Construction on the dam had been suspended in 1996 following a stay by the Supreme Court which allowed work to resume, four years later, but with conditions. World News

    Trump says bureaucracy holding UN back

    World News: NEW YORK, US President Donald Trump warned that "bureaucracy" is holding the United Nations back, delivering a barbed first message to the world body he once derided as a talk shop. Kicking off a frantic week of diplomacy with a panel discussion on UN reform, Trump noted a personal history with the New York-based institution. He had seen "great potential right across the street" from UN headquarters, Trump said, referencing his decision to build the 72-floor residential skyscraper Trump World Tower nearby. "To be honest with you, and it was only for the reason that the United Nations was here that that turned out to be such a successful project," the businessman-turned-president told delegates. But Trump warned that as chief executive of the United States a founding member of the UN and its biggest financial contributor -- he wants a better return on his investment. "The United Nations was founded on truly noble goals," he said, adding that while progress has been made, "in recent years the United Nations has not reached its full potential, because of bureaucracy and mismanagement." He said that while the United Nations regular budget has increased by 140 percent, and its staff has more than doubled since 2000, "we are not seeing the results in line with this investment." He called on the institution to "focus on results," a call that was echoed by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, who said a reformed UN needs to focus "more on people and less on process." Trump once disparaged the world body as a "club" for "people to get together, talk and have a good time" and his administration has threatened deep cuts to UN funding. That includes a $600 million cut to the peacekeeping budget, which critics warn will significantly affect peace operations but which is music to Trump supporters ears. "I think the main message is Make the United Nations Great. Not again. Make the United Nations Great Trump said after his remarks. "The United Nations has tremendous potential and we ll see how it works out." Although US president Franklin Roosevelt was instrumental to midwifing the United Nations into existence, the American public has proven more skeptical. Many of Trump s closest advisors and donors see the 193-member body as a check on US power and drain on American resources. The United States pays 22 percent of the UN s $5.4 billion core budget and 28.5 percent of the $7.3 billion peacekeeping budget. According to Gallup, 60 percent of Americans think the United Nations is doing a poor job. The Trump administration s effort to cut costs has been met coolly by other powers, most notably Russia and China, who were not among the 128 member states who signed on to a US call for reform. UN diplomats argue that divisions at the UN Security Council where the United States holds veto power along with Russia, France, China and Britain are as much to blame for UN failures as bureaucratic hurdles.
