South Korea’s ruling party Choo Mi-ae said on Wednesday South Korea’s president-elect Moon Jae-in and Choo Mi-ae leader of the Democratic Party of Korea thank supporters at Gwanghwamun Square in Seoul South Korea May 9 2017 REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon – RC15323D3430“President Trump often emphasizes that he put all options on the table” Choo told a Washington think-tank “We want to make sure that this option of another war is not placed on the table Under no circumstances should the US go ahead and use a military option without the consent of South Korea” “We must seek a peaceful resolution of the matter in any manner that is available to us” The remarks by Choo who is expected to meet Trump administration officials in Washington underscored South Korean concerns that any US strikes against North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs could provoke devastating North Korean retaliation against South Korea Choo whose president and fellow Democratic Party leader Moon Jae-in has advocated dialogue with North Korea said Seoul backed Trump’s policy of maximum pressure on Pyongyang through sanctions and that there should be no dialogue just for the sake of dialogue However she said blocking opportunities for dialogue could prompt North Korean “miscalculation” She declined to say whether she was satisfied with the Trump administration’s limited efforts to engage in dialogue with Pyongyang to resolve the crisis stemming from North Korea’s efforts to develop nuclear-tipped missiles capable of hitting the United States “I would like to reserve my answer to this question” she said “The current situation is extremely urgent; time is not on our side It is not just a matter of a threat to continental US; it’s a threat posed to Japan and most importantly and what is most problematic to the Korean peninsula” she said “The Korean government is trying to eliminate any mismatch that could exist between South Korea and the United States when it comes to this matter” While Washington has said that all options including military are on the table in dealing with North Korea it has stressed its preference is for a diplomatic solution Visiting Seoul last week Trump warned North Korea he was prepared to use the full range of US military power to stop any attack but also urged Pyongyang to “make a deal” Trump who had previously called negotiations with North Korea a waste of time has offered no clear path to talks Pyongyang has made clear it has little interest in negotiations at least until it has developed a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the US mainland This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed The Chennai Open 2017 final is a study in contrasts On one hand is Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut the world number 14 and winner of four ATP titles On the other is 20-year-old Russian Daniil Medvedev who will be playing in his maiden final on the ATP World Tour Bautista Agut who is 28-years-old is a former finalist at the Chennai Open and is coming into this year’s final on the back of a tremendous 2016 season He achieved a career-high ranking of 13 with two titles and a famous victory over Novak Djokovic at the Shanghai Masters where he made his first-ever Masters 1000 final Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut in action Image courtesy: Chennai Open Medvedev who was playing on the Futures and Challengers circuit had a breakthrough year in 2016 He started the season ranked number 329 in the world but leapfrogged into the top 100 with a career-high ranking of 98 by the end of 2016 He won his first Challenger title at St Remy in September While Medvedev hasn’t experienced the same amount of hype as some of his fellow next-gen batchmates he has been one of the most consistent players from that generation In 2016 he notched up 35 wins in Challengers and reached the last eight in eight consecutive tournaments Both the finalists also have contrasting styles of play The 6’0” Bautista Agut doesn’t play like most other players from Spain and uses comparatively less topspin He hits the ball flat and relies on his two-handed backhand to control points He has great hands at the net and mixes things well with deft volleys and drop shots Medvedev in contrast is a 6’6” tall lanky player with an aggressive forehand His serve is a major weapon and often gets him out of trouble with 200 kmph aces The Russian is a string baseliner and can hit some lethal groundstrokes However Medvedev isn’t the most comfortable player at the net and has difficulty getting to balls that stay really low The final on Sunday will be their first career meeting While this is the first time that Medvedev is playing in Chennai Bautista Agut has a 10-4 win-loss record at the SDAT Stadium So far they have only dropped one set each in the tournament Here’s a look at how both the finalists fared in the tournament so far Russian Daniil Medvedev in action Image courtesy: Chennai Open Road to Final: First round: Bautista Agut seeded second got a bye in his first round Medvedev made a successful debut at this 250 ATP event by drowning fellow next-gen player Thiago Monteiroof Brazil 6-3 6-3 22-year-old Monteiro who was ranked 17 places higher than his Russian opponent had no answer to Medvedev’s big serves and powerful hitting from the baseline Medvedev hit eight aces on his way to the second round Second round: Bautista Agut started his 2017 campaign with an easy straight-sets win over Brazilian Rogério Dutra Silva The Spaniard needed just one hour and 15 minutes to dispatch Dutra Silva 6-3 6-2 In his second round match Medvedev shocked eight seedLuYen-hsun 6-4 6-3 The upset was a first indication of what the Russian could achieve breaking the Taiwanese’s serve five times in the match Quarter-final: Bautista Agut was up against veteran Mikhail Youzhny in his last-eight clash Youzhny the seventh seed had a comfortable lead of 6-2 4-1 in the quarter-final and looked on his way into the next round Bautista Agut fought back valiantly breaking twice to force a decider In the third set the Spaniard was once again trailing 1-3 but made another tenacious comeback to eventually win 2-6 6-4 6-4 Medvedev in contrast had an easy outing as he snuffed out Slovakia’s giant-slaying qualifier Jozef Kovalik 6-1 6-4 and reached his first ever semi-final at the ATP level Semi-final: Just like the quarters both Bautista Agut and Medvedev took completely different paths to the make the final showdown The Spaniard humbled France’s fifth seed Benoit Paire 6-3 6-3 in just over an hour Medvedev though was made to toil for his win and was a match point down in the second set against Dudi Sela The Russian saved the point with a forehand winner broke back and forced a tie-break Medvedev rode his powerful serve to prevail into a decider and then went on to win4-6 7-6 (2) 6-2 What they said: Bautista Agut said that he loves coming back to Chennai as he has done well here in the past "It’s nice to be in the final here again I have more experience now (than in 2013) I have been working a lot and improving every year I will fight in the final until the last point and we’ll see how it goes” he said Speaking about his opponent he said “Medvedev is a very good server and has good strokes from the baseline It’s going to be a difficult match against him” Medvedev in his post-match press conference expressed his happiness at making his first ATP final “I don’t how to describe this feeling I am super happy but also exhausted because it was a really tough match It was humid and warm I am going to try my best to now win my first ATP title” he said In his semi-final Medvedev had briefly asked for a medical timeout but assured that it wasn’t a big worry “It was a little problem with my shoulder muscle The physio tried to help me and it was just a minute’s timeout over the changeover So I am going to be okay for the final” “I am approaching this match just like every match I will play my game and hope to dictate points to win” he concluded By: PTI | Published: October 17 2017 7:17 pm Parthiv Patel’s experience in trying circumstances proved to be the key (Source: File)

Revolution joint clean energy research is now underway across collectives of leading labs and research universities in both countries on solar biofuels and building efficiency Related News Ten years ago US President George W Bush and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh aimed to remove a long-standing barrier to deeper US-India ties through a civil nuclear cooperation deal It was a big idea but no one could have foreseen how big it would become Nuclear energy is a highly technical issue yet somehow it managed to capture especially in India the imagination of the public at large In 2007 I served on the staff of the then undersecretary of state R Nicholas Burns — the lead negotiator on the US side — and will never forget the night a security guard at the Delhi airport recognised him “Nicholas Burns 1-2-3” he said holding up a copy of that day’s newspaper covering the ongoing 123 Agreement negotiations Ever since those negotiations were completed the quest for the “next big idea” has hovered in the background of US-India ties Today clean energy cooperation has become the new big idea in US-India relations Following the Republic Day summit between President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Narendra Modi the importance of clean energy cooperation in this relationship could not be clearer As Modi said during their joint press conference “When we think about the future generations and what kind of world we are going to give them then there is pressure” to “give a better lifestyle to the future generations a good life and a good environment” It’s an area little heralded by the press and public although it stands to change the world we live in for the better more than any other area of bilateral cooperation India and the US share the urgent need to develop affordable renewable sources of energy to power their economies and secure themselves from the geopolitical risk of the tumultuous Middle East Clean energy research and commercialisation bring both countries together in a shared approach to the global challenge of our time climate change and draw on the science and technology capabilities and talent for innovation in both countries Modi means business on clean energy In his eight months in office he has already increased the target for India’s use of solar energy fivefold (admittedly a highly ambitious goal) from 20 gigawatt (GW) to 100 GW and doubled the target for wind energy from 20 GW to 40 GW by 2019 Building on the civil nuclear initiative a specific focus on clean energy cooperation began in 2009 That year Obama and then PM Singh announced the creation of a “Partnership to Advance Clean Energy” The research and commercial applications carried out through this initiative in just under six years already represent some of the most creative ways two countries can work together Harkening back to the agroscience cooperation between India and the US that delivered the Green Revolution joint clean energy research is now under way across collectives of leading labs and research universities in both countries on solar biofuels and building efficiency Three US institutions (National Renewable Energy Laboratory the University of Florida and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) have partnered with three leading institutions in India (Indian Institute of Science-Bangalore the Indian Institute of Chemical Technology-Hyderabad and CEPT University-Ahmedabad) to push ahead on new discoveries in the three fields India is also keen to learn from the shale gas experience in the US as many admire the energy security that it has created The US Geological Survey carried out a survey of the potential for shale gas discovery in three coastal areas of India (the Bombay Cauvery and Krishna-Godavari basins) and LNG exports to India have been approved for two sites so far in the US (Cheniere’s Sabine Pass in Louisiana and Dominion Cove Point in Maryland) Since 2009 clean energy collaborations have mobilised more than $2 billion in financing — and that number is quickly rising This financing has become a key component of the US Export Import (Exim) Bank’s India portfolio and now appears to be the major focus of US financing announcements at US-India meetings When Modi visited Washington last September the sole big-dollar announcement was a $1 billion memorandum between the US Exim Bank and the Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) — for clean energy naturally The Republic Day summit has gone even further: the package of $4 billion in financing highlighted by Obama includes $2 billion in US Trade and Development Agency support $1 billion from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation dedicated solely to clean energy and the earlier $1 billion agreement That’s a big deal Last given the clear position of the government of India that the country will not be in a position to make a firm commitment to cap emissions while focused on its economic growth needs — meaning that no US-India climate agreement will materialise anytime soon — clean energy has become the most productive shared way to continue working on the larger climate change question Joint statements from recent bilateral meetings show how quickly the activities being pursued under the clean energy area have ramped up Civil nuclear cooperation is now just one example We also have the smart cities initiatives off-grid work on clean energy access a finance forum energy security consultations and work on power systems to list just a few From a big idea a decade ago focused on finding a way to cooperate on civil nuclear energy the clean energy piece of the US-India relationship has grown exponentially This quiet gradual accumulation of numerous smaller projects has begun to add up to much more than the sum of its parts As the US and India turn a new corner elevating ties to a “friendship” from the previous “strategic partnership” the emphasis on shared approaches to prosperity sustainable development and mitigating climate change comes through strongly Clean energy cooperation cuts across every area imaginable in meeting those three goals There will be much more work ahead but clean energy is an idea

2012 (Source: Reuters) Top News Arsenal head to Anfield on Sunday seeking to improve their poor recent record against other ‘Big Six’ teams amid growing uncertainty surrounding their most creative players Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Arsene Wenger’s side have not won at Anfield since 2012 since when they have played 50 matches against their major rivals only winning 11 drawing 19 and losing 20 Away from home they have just won two of 24 games at Chelsea Liverpool Tottenham Hotspur Manchester City and United Anfield also was the scene for one of their greatest humiliations when a vibrant Liverpool side thrashed them 5-1 in 2014 ripping them apart with four goals in the first 20 minutes The contrast between their recent failures and that last victory in September 2012 when two of their summer signings Lukas Podolski and Santi Cazorla scored the goals could not be more stark with Wenger again this week bemoaning the state of the transfer market as he seeks to add to his summer business Wenger needs to sell before he can buy long-term target Monaco winger Thomas Lemar and has described his 33-man squad as “unmanageable” But in a familiar refrain he this week lamented the market difficulties experienced by English clubs “There is no transfer market anymore because the price depends only on the identity of the buyer and when you are English you have straight away 50 per cent on the price of a player and that makes it difficult to act” said Wenger His failure to offload any underperformers given the disappointment of last season when Arsenal failed to qualify for the Champions League has surprised respected Irish commentator Johnnie Giles the former Leeds United midfielder “I’ve always been a great fan of Wenger and I think he has done a great job with Arsenal over the years – I think everybody agrees with that” said Giles on Eamon Dunphy’s The Stand podcast “But when you have Ozil in the team again and Chamberlain in the team again Walcott still there Xhaka — these are proven failures and why they are there I don’t know I think it will be the end of Wenger “I thought they would be out start from scratch good players in or better than he has These are proven failures and why he is sticking with them I do not know” Not everyone agrees with that assessment particularly of Oxlade-Chamberlain who Wenger insists is not for sale despite interest from Chelsea and Liverpool With Sanchez also linked with a move to Manchester City there could be several ins and outs ahead of next week’s transfer deadline Before then Wenger will be desperate for some
