China says Japan trying to 'confuse' South China Sea situation-[Reuters]-September 19, 2016-YAHOONEWS
BEIJING (Reuters) - China on Monday accused Japan of trying to "confuse" the situation in the South China Sea, after its neighbor said it would step up activity in the contested waters, through joint training patrols with the United States.Ties between Asia's two largest economies have long been overshadowed by arguments over their painful wartime history and a territorial spat in the East China Sea, among other issues.China has repeatedly denounced what it views as interference by the United States and its ally Japan in the South China Sea.Japan will also help build the capacity of coastal states in the busy waterway, its defense minister said last week during a visit to Washington.Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said countries in the region had reached a consensus that the South China Sea issue should be resolved through talks between the parties directly involved, and that China and Southeast Asian countries should jointly maintain peace and stability there."Let's have a look at the results of Japan's throwing things into disorder over this same time period ... trying to confuse the South China Sea situation under the pretence of (acting for) the international community," Lu told a daily news briefing, when asked about Japan's announcement.Japan's actions have simply pushed other countries away from it, and it has failed to compel other nations to see its point of view, he added."China is resolute in its determination to protect its sovereignty and maritime interests," Lu said.China claims almost all of the South China Sea, through which ships carrying about $5 trillion in trade pass every year. Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam also have claims in the sea, which is also believed to be rich in energy resources and fish stocks.In July, an arbitration court in the Hague said China's claims to the waterway were invalid, after a case was brought by the Philippines. Beijing has refused to recognize the ruling.(Reporting by Ben Blanchard; Editing by Clarence Fernandez)

EU 27 agree 'roadmap', but Italy spoils party By Eszter Zalan-EUOBSERVER
BRATISLAVA, 16. Sep, 22:25-The aim of Friday's (16 September) Bratislava summit was to reconnect EU leaders with European citizens, and to convince voters that the EU works for them, not against them.But the event did little to warm local people’s hearts.Almost the entire Slovak capital was shut down. People were told to work from home. Helicopters hovered all day long over the gem-like capital, and Bratislavians faced roadblocks and other disruptions, while the 27 leaders had lunch on a cruise ship on the Danube.“It’s crazy, even when we had the Bush-Putin meeting in 2005 here, it wasn’t so bad,” said one local, referring to the former US and current Russian leaders.The Bratislava gathering was designed for leaders to have a “brutally honest” discussion on the EU’s future, as EU Council chief Donald Tusk put it.The splendid isolation of the leaders from journalists and public, in Bratislava Castle, might have helped. EU officials after the meeting said the mood among the leaders was surprisingly congenial.“I don’t think this summit will have an impact on how voters see Europe today, but it is important that we revive the relationship between Europe and citizens," French president Francois Hollande said after the meeting."Because when Europe is challenged, it's democracy and our values that can be damaged,” he said during a joint press conference with German chancellor Angela Merkel.-Bratislava Declaration-After a day of “group-therapy” triggered by the UK’s decision to leave the bloc, the 27 remaining EU leaders accepted the so-called Bratislava Declaration and roadmap, setting out objectives, and tentative timelines."Although one country has decided to leave, the EU remains indispensable for the rest of us,” reads the text, adding: “We are determined to make a success of the EU with 27 member states.”"The EU is not perfect but it is the best instrument we have for addressing the new challenges we are facing,” it says.Leaders pledged never to return to "uncontrolled flows" of migrants of last year, but the term “chaos” used often by Tusk was scrapped, as it was deemed too grim by some.To reach that goal, member states want to ensure full control of external borders and by the end of the year to have the European Border and Coast Guard fully operational.In December, leaders are to decide new plans on security and defence cooperation, and see how deeply they can proceed on military cooperation within the existing EU treaties.At the end of the year, the 27 also plan to seal a deal on the doubling of the investment fund, proposed by EU commission president Jean-Claude Juncker. In October, they will assess the bloc's trade policy to provide more protection for European consumers and businesses.Leaders also decided to send help to Bulgaria to protect its border, and set up an entry-exit system that checks the identity of people before they travel to the EU.-Renzi off course-They pledged the “loyal” co-operation and communication of member states and institutions. It means that leaders are expected to stick to the line of unity, and not to keep blaming the EU for their problems - a message especially directed toward Hungary and Poland.Hungary's prime minister Viktor Orban still had some critical words on the EU's migration policy, which he plans to challenge with a referendum in October. Orban told journalists after the meeting that the summit was unsuccessful in the sense that Brussels’s “naive and self-defeating” policy could not be changed.However, it was Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi who refused to stick to the script."I can't give a joint press conference with Merkel and Hollande. I don't follow a script to make people believe we all agree,” he told journalists after the summit, according to ANSA news agency.Renzi said the progress on the migration crisis or rolling back the policy of austerity was not sufficient. “We want to see facts,” he said, adding that the Bratislava summit was a waste of time.EU officials seemed surprised by Renzi’s belligerent comments, and suggested they were geared towards the Italian electorate, which will vote later this year on a number of crucial reforms on which the Italian PM has bet his political survival.-V4 tones down-The group of the Visegrad Four, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia did put out a joint statement during the summit, but it was far from the “revolutionary” proposals promised earlier by Polish and Hungarian leaders.While the text goes on to say that national parliaments should have more say in decision-making, it does not spell out how the assemblies should get more control over EU policies.It also suggested “flexible solidarity” within migration policy, an idea that has been floated for some time, which would allow mainly these reluctant eastern European countries not to take in refugees, but contribute otherwise, with manpower or equipment, to the EU’s asylum reforms.Germany accepts now that mandatory refugee quotas do not work, and the flexible solidarity idea is something it can live with. Merkel called it a “positive proposal” after the meeting, while adding that "it will be interesting to discuss what exactly they mean by this."Tusk said he will brief British prime minister Theresa May on what happened in Bratislava.He said that May told him that the UK should be ready to trigger Article 50, the exit procedure, in January or February next year.
UK to veto EU 'defence union' By Andrew Rettman-EUOBSERVER
BRUSSELS, 17. Sep, 13:23-British defence minister Michael Fallon has said the UK would veto the creation of EU military capabilities so long as it remained a member of the bloc.Reacting to ideas on closer EU defence cooperation, discussed at the Bratislava summit on Friday (16 September), he told The Times, a British newspaper: “That is not going to happen”.“We are full members of the EU and we will go on resisting any attempt to set up a rival to Nato”.He said Britain had always “been concerned about unnecessarily duplicating what we already have in Nato”.He added that: “We will go on being committed to the security of the European continent We are not going to back out of our commitment to keeping Europe secure, but we don’t want to see unnecessary bureaucracy at the EU level when we have got it in Nato”.The remaining 27 EU leaders met in the Slovak capital without the UK in the first such format since the Brexit referendum in June.Proposals for what Germany has called an EU “defence union” and others have called an "EU army" included the creation of an EU military HQ, with medical aid and logistics capabilities, that would command EU crisis missions.The operations, such as the naval anti-pirate mission, Atalanta, in the Gulf of Aden, are currently commanded by individual member states.The proposals, endorsed by France and Germany and by the European Commission, also included joint EU defence budgets, shared military satellite surveillance, and joint procurement of high-tech equipment, such as drones.UK exit negotiations are expected to start in early 2017 and to last at least two years, with the UK retaining its full rights in the EU Council during that period.The talks are likely to centre on EU migrants and Britain’s access to the single market, but risk being bedevilled by side issues.For his part, Andrew Duff, an expert at the European Policy Centre, a think tank in Brussels, and a former British MEP for the Liberal party, said the UK overestimated its unilateral military power.“One understands more and more why Britain was just no good at being in the EU: It can't defend itself yet will block plans for European army”, he said on Twitter.Steven Blockmans, a Belgian scholar of EU affairs at the Centre for European Policy Studies, another Brussels think tank, said the UK would "hamper [its] own exit deal by vetoing" EU defence plans.
EU stands by unloved migrant quotas-By Eric Maurice-SEPT 19,16-EUOBSERVER
BRUSSELS, Today, 18:43-Solidarity and the EU relocation system for asylum seekers are two different things, a European Commission spokesman has said."Solidarity has to be felt. It has to come from the heart, it's not something that can be dictated by law or by directive. But this has nothing to do with the application of community law, which is not optional," Margaritis Schinas told journalists on Monday (19 September).He had been asked whether the two-year plan to relocate 160,000 refugees from Italy and Greece to other EU countries that was launched a year ago was still binding or not.Last week, in his state of the Union speech, commission president Jean-Claude Juncker said that "when it comes to managing the refugee crisis … solidarity must be given voluntarily."At Monday's commission press point, Schinas that Juncker's words did not mean a change of position by the EU executive."Relocation obligations are enshrined in European law," he said, adding that the plan was "under implementation", even though "not at the rate we would have liked."When it presented its relocation plan last year, the commission said it was "a solidarity mechanism for all member states."In May, in its proposal to reform the Dublin asylum system, the commission said member states who do not accept to relocate asylum seekers would have to pay €250,000 per person in their unfulfilled quota."There's simply no way around it: whenever a member state is overwhelmed, there must be solidarity and a fair sharing of responsibility within the EU," commission vice-president Frans Timmermans said at the time.On Monday, Schinas declined to say whether the commission still stuck to that position. He said the proposal was "subject to colegislation" and was "not at all comparable" with the current relocation mechanism.On Friday, the 27 EU leaders meeting in Bratislava said in a common declaration that EU consensus needed to be broadened, "including on how to apply the principles of responsibility and solidarity in the future."The declaration was agreed under pressure by the so-called Visegrad Four countries - Hungary, Slovakia, the Cezch Republic, and Poland - who said in a joint statement that "migration policy should be based on the principle of 'flexible solidarity'."Two members of the group, Slovakia and Hungary, have refused to implement the relocation mechanism agreed last year, with the cases due in courts.The commission spokesman also declined to say whether "voluntary" and "flexible" solidarity are the same policy concepts.
17-year-old is first minor to be granted euthanasia in Belgium-[Reuters]-By Francesco Guarascio-September 17, 2016-YAHOONEWS
BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A 17-year-old has committed doctor-assisted suicide in Belgium, the first minor to do so under rules adopted in 2014 allowing euthanasia for people of all ages, the head of the national committee for euthanasia said on Saturday.Wim Distelmans, who chairs Belgium's Federal Control and Evaluation Committee on Euthanasia, told Reuters that the minor was 17 and that a local doctor had reported the case to his committee last week, but he gave no other details.Belgium legalised euthanasia in 2002, and two years ago amended the rules to permit doctor-assisted death for minors in a hopeless medical situation and with their explicit consent.It is the only country in the world that allows euthanasia for minors of all ages. In the neighbouring Netherlands the practice is legal for children aged 12 or over.Distelmans said in an emailed statement that the Belgian law defines euthanasia very strictly. Minors must be conscious and able to make rational decisions when they request assisted death. Psychologists or psychiatrists must be consulted and the parents must give their permission.To undergo euthanasia, the minor must also be in a "terminal medical situation with constant and unbearable physical pain which cannot be assuaged and that will cause death in the short term", the law says.In the ten years to 2013, the number of euthanasia cases in Belgium rose from about 1,000 to 8,752, according to official records.Euthanasia laws vary by country. Laws in Belgium, the Netherlands, Colombia and Luxemburg allow mercy deaths for adults, which usually means a doctor administering lethal doses of barbiturates.In Switzerland, Germany, Japan and Canada, doctor-assisted suicide, where people take the final action themselves, is legal.(Editing by Louise Ireland)
Pride and pressure as Crimea holds first Russia parliament vote-[AFP]-Lilya Budzhurova with Oleg Leus in Sevastopol-September 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
Simferopol (AFP) - Crimea went to the polls Sunday to elect deputies to Russia's parliament for the first time since the region was annexed by Moscow -- stirring pride in some, but pushing others to protest.A total of 1,164 polling stations opened across the region, according to its electoral commission, two-and-a-half years after the strategic Black Sea peninsula was seized from Ukraine by the Kremlin.In the regional capital Simferopol, mainly elderly residents flocked to busy polling stations in the city centre."I went to vote, and all my relatives and neighbours are going," said pensioner Valentina. "We are for Russia."She said she cast her ballot for Crimean leader Sergei Aksyonov because he is backed by Russian President Vladimir Putin."If Putin likes him, then we all like him. We are for Putin, God give him health."The new elite that has taken over the peninsula since Russian rule has called for a high turnout in polls to confirm loyalty to the Kremlin as they look to cement their own grip over the region.But even some of those who welcomed Moscow's annexation of Crimea said they felt let down by those who subsequently took control."Look what they've done to Crimea -- food is dearer than in Moscow," said pensioner Ivan, calling the new leaders "bandits"."Medicines are like gold and pensions and wages aren't enough even for food."In the port city of Sevastopol -- the home of Russia's Black Sea fleet -- while some backed the ruling United Russia party, many complained about daily life in the city where the economy has been hit hard by punishing Western sanctions."I'm not happy with the prices in the city and the bureaucracy," said Vladimir, a retired nuclear physicist, adding that he had voted Communist.- 'Don't want to lose my job' -But elsewhere in Simferopol, polling stations in areas with more minority Crimean Tatars were emptier. Tatars have largely opposed Russia's takeover, with community leaders calling for a boycott of the polls after Russian authorities closed their governing body and television channel while detaining, searching and prosecuting activists.Refat Chubarov, the head of the banned Tatars' Mejlis assembly who lives in exile in Kiev, wrote on Facebook that the polls "held by the occupiers in Crimea are illegal and criminal".He urged the Tatars -- who make up around 14 percent of the population -- to "find the strength and courage not to give into scare tactics and blackmail".At Simferopol's Kuibyshevsky market, Crimean Tatar traders said the management had threatened to fire them if they did not vote."I'm afraid they'll take away my work, but how can I go to vote? My children will stop respecting me, my neighbours won't say hello to me," said one trader, Muniver.In the village of Kamenka in north Crimea, teacher Nadzhiye, a Crimean Tatar woman in her mid-30s, said "the school's administration threatened to fire the Crimean Tatar staff if they don't come to vote"."What can I do? I don't want to lose my job," she said.Another villager, who gave his name as Zeitulla, said it was unthinkable to vote for people he saw as oppressors."How can you go and vote for authorities that abduct, intimidate and arrest Crimean Tatars and force their way into our mosques?"The vote in Crimea has also stirred anger in Ukraine, sparking protests in Kiev.Several dozen protesters, including some from the nationalist Svoboda party, rallied outside the Russian embassy as it hosted voting for expatriates, clashing with police and would-be voters.Three people were detained during the demonstration, police told AFP.Activists carried a figure of Putin on a gallows and trampled a Russian flag.
