Endangers Turkey-Europe relationship for Armenian genocide

Endangers Turkey-Europe relationship for Armenian genocide -

The Turkish Foreign Ministry said the resolution of the Parliament urging Turkey to recognize Armenian genocide is "ridiculous" and could damage relations between Ankara and the EU.

the resolution, adopted by the full European Parliament , "is ridiculous and reproduces literally cliches propaganda of Armenia against Turkey, "said the Ministry in a note that was broadcast by the NTV station, quoted by EFE today.

the European Parliament" exhibits selective and unilateral stance events 1915, contrary to its own values, and can damage relations between Turkey and the European Union, besides being far from bringing a solution to Turkey and Armenia, "advirte critically on the resolution.

" we do not take seriously those who accepted this text, which slaughters history and rights, "the Turkish statement.

for the Turkish government, the resolution" repeated errors not agree with international law the time and exceed the jurisdiction "of the European Parliament, expressed in the note.

Meanwhile, the Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Yalçın Akdogan reacted against the decision by a message posted on his Twitter account.

"you can not take seriously this talk. If the European Parliament had a wise vision, let the historical nonsense and would handle what happens in our day, "said Akdogan.

Anticipating this text, the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan , he had previously stated that "whatever the decision of the European Parliament on the claims by the Armenian genocide, come in one ear and out the other, because it is not possible for Turkey to accept such a crime." In addition had stressed that his government acts with "generosity by not deporting 100,000 undocumented immigrants (Armenian), but could if he wanted."

the repudiation of the Turkish government is the same that caused the statements of Pope Francisco last Sunday, when he said that the Armenian was "the first genocide of the twentieth century" and called on all countries in the world to recognize it.

His words provoked the ire of Erdogan, who he said the pontiff said "stupidities", and several members of his government. The last to attack the Pope was the Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, who accused him of "joining a conspiracy" driven by an "evil front."

A step forward for the democratization of Mercosur

A step forward for the democratization of Mercosur -

Saturday night different political fronts unveiled its candidates for positions in Mercosur Parliament , also known as Parlasur.

This is the legislative body that Mercosur created in 05 to replace Joint Parliamentary Committee . This was composed of deputies and senators elected from the Legislatures of each member country. While it had been established with the goal of being an institutional space that reflects the will of the citizens, it had restricted the possibility to elect their representatives.

In December 05, countries that were part of signed organism Constitutive Protocol of the Mercosur Parliament . Through this document Parlasur, which would consist of deputies elected periodically by the citizens of each state was created.

As expressed in the different institutional declarations, Parlasur is "a common space in which pluralism and diversity of the region reflects and contributes to democracy, participation, representation, transparency and social legitimacy in the development of the integration process and its rules. "

by the time is not expected that this body can create binding legal rules. Previously, the Parliamentary Committee had been established as an organ "harmonizer" between the standards created by the Mercosur and the domestic legal systems of each country, although in the background played a purely consultative role.

Currently, Parliament Mercosur is competent in certain areas and aims to deepen the institutionalization of these areas within the space of South American integration. In the words of the current deputy Parlasur Julia Perié among these competencies are:

  • Active participation in integration commercial. It has the power to issue opinions on such rules, when sent by the Council of the Common Market, and those opinions should be sent to local parliaments, which have to give preferential treatment. Thus, the Parlasur has a central role to accelerate the adoption of rules of Mercosur, which contributes to the consolidation of the regional bloc in its commercial dimension.
  • A significant and specific role in protecting rights humans. As the Parlasur strengthen, their human rights reports on the member states of the bloc will have more impact and visibility.
  • A mechanism for receiving individual petitions, whether natural or legal persons, related acts or omissions of the organs of Mercosur.
During the first stage, these deputies would be elected the same way as in the Parliamentary Commission. It was determined that from 2011 states should regulate and call elections for this purpose. However, so far only Paraguay and Uruguay held ballots to elect their representanters in Parlasur.

Therefore, from October, Argentina will become the third country in the Mercosur to elect their representatives in the legislative body based in Montevideo, Uruguay.

The seats at stake

in October they should choose 43 deputies who represent the country in the Parlasur. Due to the federal structure of Argentina, each of the 23 provinces plus the Buenos Aires elect their respective deputies.

The remaining 19 positions will be chosen taking the entire country as a single district and define proportionally through the sostema D'Hont (the same used for national deputies).

Regarding the latter, each party or front presented a single list for the whole country. On the side of the Front for Victory, will head Jorge Taiana (who signed the creation of Parlasur in 05 when he served as chancellor) Agustín Rossi Teresa Parodi Daniel Filmus and Milagros Salas .

The front Let's change (alliance between PRO, UCR and Civic Coalition) also presented a single list where they propose to Mariana Zuvic Fabian Rodriguez Simon and Lilia Puig de Stubrin .

The front UNA alliance leading Sergio Massa and Jose Manuel De La Sota, has as head of list Jorge Vanossi , who will be accompanied by Carlos Zaffore and Monica Lopez .

on the side of the Front Progressives, payroll is composed of Juan Carlos Zabalza Cristina Calvo Hector Polino and Martin Hourest . While Federal Commitment go with the former governor of Santa Fe, José María Vernet.

On the side of the left parties, the New MAS posits Alcides Christiansen ; the Left Front presents two lists will face in the PASO, one led by Marcelo Ramal and the other the metrodelegado Claudio Dellecarbonara ; the candidate of the MST-New Left is Luciana Echevarria .

Meanwhile, South Korea agreed to stop transmission North Korean propaganda count the communist regime through loudspeakers located along the border, a practice that had resumed -after a break of more than a decade in retaliation for the explosions of mines.

the two Koreas also agreed to work towards a resumption next month of separated families by War Korea (1950-1953), and hold official talks in Seoul or Pyongyang on a date to be agreed.

the agreement was reached during intensive talks in Panmunjom, a town on the border between the two countries, which had begun on Saturday night.

Just hours before president Park had insisted that his country would not stop issuing propaganda unless North Korea apologized.

North and South remain technically at odds since the Korean War (1950 -53), which ended with an armistice never replaced by a final peace treaty.

As a legacy of that conflict, the United States maintains 28,500 troops in South Korea to support the commitment of defend its ally in the event of an armed conflict occur with the regime of Kim.

They continue to seek Malaysia Airlines plane

They continue to seek Malaysia Airlines plane -

One year after the strange disappearance of flight MH370 Malaysia Airlines , the government Kuala Lumpur pledged today to continue the search for the remains of the ship carrying 239 people from that city Beijing amid growing criticism from relatives of the victims.

"there are no words to describe the pain of the relatives of those who were on board. the lack of answers and definitive proof, as the remains of the plane- it became something even more difficult to bear, "wrote the Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak , in an official statement quoted by the news agency EFE.

" Together with our international partners, we followed the little evidence we have. Malaysia remains committed to the search and hopeful that MH370 will be found, "said the official, without adding anything really new to the official discourse that are listening to the families of the victims in the last months.

The search teams and swept 43% of the 60,000 kilometers, where international researchers believe that plunged the Boeing 777-0 in the Indian Ocean and expect to complete the raking in May. It is unclear what will happen if they find any trace.

Given the desperation of the families of the victims and the sustained interest of international public opinion, the authorities released today a preliminary report, in which the Malays members of the international research team revealed that battery system location of the black boxes had expired a year before the flight MH370 took off in Kuala Lumpur bound for Beijing.

"the sole objective of the investigation is the prevention of future accidents and incidents and not blame, "said the report of over 580 pages, which represents the first official conclusion of international investigation that began weeks after the disappearance of the ship.

the authors also stated that the captain of the plane, Zaharie Ahmad Shah , did not suffer physical or mental problems, and stressed that lacked a history of anxiety or irritability.

"There were no significant changes in their lifestyle, interpersonal conflict or stress family, "the document.

the Malays researchers also found no suspicious movements in the bank accounts of Zaharie or passenger Fariq Abdul Hamid , which contradicts the theory that they would have committed sabotage for some reason.

at the moment, the hypothesis they work with international experts is that the Boeing 777 of Malaysian Airlines crashed exactly one year ago in the Indian Ocean after veering off route between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing. The reasons for the deviation and fall are still unknown.

The lack of information and physical traces continues dilating the grief and pain of the families of the 239 people who disappeared with flight MH370.

While the airline made a small private commemoration, today there was no act or official ceremony in Malaysia for the first anniversary of the disappearance of the plane of Malaysia Airlines.

However, over a hundred relatives and friends of the victims, convened by the support group Voice 370, gathered in the Malaysian capital on their own to pay tribute to their loved ones.

"When we got here, did not receive us representatives of MAS (Malaysian Airlines) or the Malaysian government, have had many difficulties, "he told EFE a Chinese family who lost her husband on the flight MH370.

the woman, who asked not to reveal his name fear of reprisals from Chinese authorities, criticized the government of Kuala Lumpur by lack of communication, a secrecy described as "suspicious."

in the ceremony held by Voice 370 in the shopping Publika, some relatives not could hold back tears when approached by dozens of photographers, while others focused on signing a manifesto to ask that we not stop the search.

Despite the promise outlined today by the Malaysian premier, last January, his government had declared the disappearance of the aircraft as an accident and its occupants as probably dead.

Some of the relatives of the missing, mostly a group of Chinese citizens, rejected again today that statement and denounced the "abandonment" of Kuala Lumpur .

Other families, especially in Malaysia and Australia endorsed instead the government statement, which will allow them to receive compensation by insurers.

in China a group of family also organized a ceremony to remember this first anniversary.

were gathered from early morning in the Lama temple in Beijing and held a ceremony surrounded by an operating nourished security that prevented international journalists to participate or speak to the relatives of the victims.
