More Americans will die after Trump abruptly ends Afghan talks, Taliban say

President Donald Trump’s decision to cancel Afghan peace talks will cost more American lives, the Taliban said on Sunday while the United States promised to keep up military pressure on the militants, in a stunning reversal of efforts to forge a deal ending nearly 20 years of war in Afghanistan. The Islamist group issued a statement after Trump unexpectedly cancelled secret talks planned for Sunday with the Taliban’s major leaders at the presidential compound in Camp David, Maryland. He broke off the talks on Saturday after the Taliban claimed responsibility for an attack in Kabul last week that killed an American soldier and 11 others. Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman, criticized Trump for calling off the dialogue and said U.S. forces have been pounding Afghanistan with attacks at the same time. “This will lead to more losses to the U.S.,” he said. “Its credibility will be affected, its anti-peace stance will be exposed to the world, losses to lives and assets will increase.” In Washington, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Afghan peace talks were on hold and Washington would not reduce U.S. military support for Afghan troops until it was convinced the Taliban could follow through on significant commitments. ........Read more

Trump raises 30% tax on Chinese goods worth $250 billion as trade war worsens

US President Donald Trump on Friday lashed back at a new round of Chinese tariffs by heaping an additional 5 per cent duty on some $550 billion in targeted Chinese goods in the latest tit-for-tat trade war escalation by the world's two largest economies. Trump's move, announced on Twitter, came hours after China unveiled retaliatory tariffs on $75 billion worth of US goods, prompting the president earlier in the day to demand US companies move their operations out of China. The intensifying US-China trade war stoked market fears that the global economy will tip into recession, sending US stocks into a tailspin, with the Nasdaq Composite down 3 per cent, and the S&P 500 down 2.6 per cent. US Treasury yields also declined as investors sought safe-haven assets, and crude oil, targeted for the first time by Chinese tariffs, fell sharply. Trump's tariff response was announced after markets closed on Friday, leaving potentially more damage for next week. "Sadly, past Administrations have allowed China to get so far ahead of Fair and Balanced Trade that it has become a great burden to the American Taxpayer," Trump said on Twitter. "As President, I can no longer allow this to happen!" He said the United States would raise its existing tariffson $250 billion worth of Chinese imports to 30per cent from the current 25per cent beginning on Oct. 1, the 70th anniversary of the founding of the communist People's Republic of China.........Read more

Move to steer INS Viraat to city picks up speed

With an eye on berthing claim over INS Viraat, chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu has directed the AP Tourism Department and Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority (Vuda) to complete a feasibility study in the next two weeks for berthing the aircraft carrier at Vizag. Following a closed-door meeting held with senior officials of the Indian Navy including flag officer commanding-in-chief of Eastern Naval Command vice-admiral HCS Bisht and AP government officials, the CM directed the tourism department and Vuda to identify the final location for berthing the legendary aircraft carrier, senior government officials told TOI. At the same time, he asked the two government agencies to estimate the cost for berthing the aircraft carrier and to ascertain if any dredging work needs to be undertaken or breakwaters have to be constructed for the project. "The feasibility study would identify the ideal location for the carrier and how much cost the project would entail," said a senior AP government official adding that the main purpose of the bringing the carrier to Vizag and how it will be useful for the city should also be explained. He said, "The feasibility study will also include plans of different commercial aspects such as shopping mall, hotel, convention centre and museum, which can come up once the carrier is decommissioned." Sources said Indian Navy officials of the Eastern Naval Command assured the CM of extending all technical support required for the project. However, another senior official said, "Four locations had already been identified in Vizag, but we need to get access to the carrier for our consultants to decide on various aspects of the project. We have not yet received any communication as to when the carrier will be decommissioned, because only after our consultants are able to see it, they can get an idea of the total area available for different purposes." The aircraft carrier had set sail for the last time under its own propulsion from Mumbai to Kochi in the last week of July. INS Viraat was commissioned into the Indian Navy on May 12, 1987 and operated Sea Harrier, Seaking 42B, Seaking 42C and Chetak as its main air elements and has spent nearly 2250 days at sea sailing 5.88 lakh nautical miles, according to reports. The aircraft carrier has participated in various international joint exercises such as Malabar with the US Navy, Varuna with the French Navy and Naseem-Al-Bahar with the Oman Navy. Vizag already hosts the Kursura Submarine Museum on the Beach Road. The Kursura Submarine had served for 31 years under the Indian Navy, before being decommissioned in February 2001.........Read more
