China Warns Citizens in Pakistan of Possible Terror Attacks

FILE - Work continues on a new international trade route near Havalian in Pakistan, May 11, 2017. The work is part of a sprawling Chinese initiative to build a "new Silk Road" of ports, railways and roads across Asia, Africa and Europe.

Thousands of Chinese in Pakistan to work on $57 billion ‘Belt and Road’ development plan

Beijing: China on Friday warned its nationals in Pakistan of plans for a series of imminent “terrorist attacks” on Chinese targets there, an unusual alert as it pours funds into infrastructure projects into a country plagued by militancy.

Thousands of Chinese workers have gone to Pakistan following Beijing’s pledge to spend $57 billion (Dh209 billion) there on projects in President Xi Jinping’s signature “Belt and Road” development plan, which aims to link China with the Middle East and Europe.

Protecting employees of Chinese companies and individual entrepreneurs who have followed the investment wave along what is known as the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor has been a concern for Chinese officials.

“It is understood that terrorists plan in the near term to launch a series of attacks against Chinese organisations and personnel in Pakistan,” the Chinese embassy in Pakistan said in a statement on its website.

The embassy warned all “Chinese-invested organisations and Chinese citizens to increase security awareness, strengthen internal precautions, reduce trips outside as much as possible, and avoid crowded public spaces”.

It did not give any further details.

Pakistan’s foreign ministry could not be reached immediately for comment.

China has long worried about disaffected members of its Uighur Muslim minority in its far western region of Xinjiang linking up with militants in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

At the same time, violence in Pakistan’s southwestern Baluchistan province has fuelled concern about security for planned transport and energy links from western China to Pakistan’s deepwater port of Gwadar.

The Taliban, sectarian groups linked to Al Qaida and Daesh all operate in Baluchistan, which borders Iran and Afghanistan and is at the centre of the “Belt and Road” initiative.

In addition, separatists there have long battled the government for a greater share of gas and mineral resources, and have a long record of attacking energy and other infrastructure projects.

Daesh claimed responsibility for killing two kidnapped Chinese teachers in Baluchistan in June, prompting the government in Islamabad to pledge to beef up security for Chinese nationals.

It had already promised a 15,000-strong army division to safeguard projects along the economic corridor.

China’s security concerns abroad have grown along with its global commercial footprint.

In 2016, a suspected suicide car bomber rammed the gates of the Chinese embassy in the Kyrgyz capital Bishkek, killing the attacker and wounding at least three people.

UAE to open three new visa offices in India

Abu Dhabi: The UAE will open three new consular offices in India soon, the UAE Embassy in New Delhi has announced. The new offices in Chandigarh, Chennai and Hyderabad will help Indians in those regions to get UAE visas easily as they can avoid travelling to the existing three consular offices in distant cities, the embassy said in an email on Thursday in response to a Gulf News enquiry.

The embassy has also launched a mobile application to serve both Emiratis and Indians during their travel in India and the UAE. It will offer Emiratis emergency assistance during travel in India. Indians can get information on visa and attestation from the app. “The app is more like a map having key destinations along with proper guidance to solve any problems [during travel,” said Dr Ahmad Al Banna, the UAE Ambassador to India.

The initiatives reflect the growing bilateral relations with high-level engagements including a reported upcoming visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the UAE. As Gulf News exclusively reported on October 2, Modi is likely to visit the UAE early next year. Although no dates have been officially announced, a section of Indian media reported, quoting diplomatic sources, Modi will have a two-day visit in February.

It will be Modi’s second visit to the UAE after his maiden visit in August 2015, which was an Indian prime minister’s official visit after more than three decades. Modi’s visit and a reciprocal state visit of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to India in February 2016 elevated the friendly relationship to a comprehensive strategic partnership. Shaikh Mohammad again visited India as the chief guest on Indian Republic Day on January 26 this year. He was the most prominent Arab leader in recent years to be invited as the chief guest, after the late King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia in 2006.

The embassy said its mobile application with the name of the UAE Embassy, New Delhi is available on Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store. For Emiratis, a service called Twajudi in the app will extend assistance in the event of loss of passport etc during travel.

Al Banna said the app will help 2.8 million Indians living in the UAE, especially most of the blue-collar workers, with necessary information for them.

Opening of the new three consular offices will take the total number of the UAE consular offices in India to six. The UAE opened its new Consulate General at Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of the southern Indian state of Kerala, in October 2016. It was the UAE’s third diplomatic mission in India after the embassy in New Delhi and the Consulate General in Mumbai.

  1. Consular offices to open in Chandigarh, Chennai and Hyderabad
  2. 3 existing consular offices in New Delhi, Mumbai and Thiruvananthapuram

Dubai: The suspension of processing of the exit pass, better known overseas employment certificate (OEC), for outgoing overseas Filipino workers has been lifted, the Philippines' labour department announced on Monday.

The OEC is a document that every expatriate worker from the Philippines is required to present at the airport prior to departing back to their destination for work.

“[The suspension] has ended on 01 December 2017 and no extensions have been imposed. The processing of OECs can now resume,” Bello said in a labour advisory.

The Department of Labour and Employment (Dole) had issued an order on November 9 this year to stop the processing of OECs, following reports that some POEA staff had been conniving with illegal recruiters.

Belo said that a team of personnel from the POEA has been tasked to investigate the alleged irregularities.

“The fact-finding team will carry on with its work at the POEA to uncover the culpable parties who are responsible for the illegal recruitment activities which have victimised several of our applicants for overseas employment,” Belo pointed out.

“I expect that Jabal Shams will be covered by snow in the coming weeks,” he said.

There will be mainly clear skies and relatively cold weather at night over most of Oman with chances of clouds advection and isolated rain along the coastal areas of the Arabian Sea.

Temperatures in Muscat and Seeb hover between 22 and 20 degrees Celsius.

BROADCAST BY TRUMP ON JERUSALEM AND THE PRESIDENTS OF AMERICA

 
 

Not only did the US president, Donald Trump, challenge the whole world to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, but continued to defend his decision and try to make gains on the domestic political scene and direct what he thought were blows to the position of former American presidents from Jerusalem. 
Trump published on Twitter a video of the speech of three US presidents on Jerusalem, and concluded with his controversial announcement on Wednesday. Trump wrote at the bottom of the video: "I carried my promise in my campaign, the others did not." 
The video featured former President Bill Clinton in 1992, former President George W. Bush in 2000 and former President Barack Obama in 2008. 

"Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, an undivided city and accessible to all," Clinton said. 

Bush announces in the section that appears to have been released during his campaign: Obama stressed in his speech that "Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel." Trump concludes with his unprecedented official acknowledgment that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and that the State Department is mandated to begin the process of transferring the US Embassy to it. 

Trump noted in his twitter that the statements of former American presidents remained mere electoral promises to attract the support of the Jewish lobby in the United States, avoid confrontation with him while in the Oval Office, and never turned on the ground to reality, in recognition of the former presidents of the gravity of the matter and opposed to International covenants and resolutions.
