Russia seeks economic revenge against Turkey

By on Monday, November 30, 2015

REUTERS: Russia threatened economic retaliation against Turkey on Thursday and said it was still awaiting a reasonable explanation for the shooting down of its warplane, but Turkey dismissed the threats as "emotional" and "unfitting."
In an escalating war of words, President Tayyip Erdogan responded to Russian accusations that Turkey has been buying oil and gas from Islamic State in Syria by accusing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his backers, which include Moscow, of being the real source of the group's financial and military power.
The shooting down of the jet by the Turkish air force on Tuesday was one of the most serious clashes between a NATO member and Russia, and further complicated international efforts to battle Islamic State militants.
World leaders have urged both sides to avoid escalation. In an apparent attempt to cool the dispute - and appeal to Western countries - Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said in a letter to Britain's Times newspaper that Ankara would work with its allies and Russia to "calm tensions".
Earlier, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev ordered his government to draw up measures that would include freezing some joint investment projects and restricting food imports from Turkey.
Economy Minister Alexei Ulyukayev said Moscow could put limits on flights to and from Turkey, halt preparations for a joint free trade zone, and restrict high-profile projects including the Turk Stream gas pipeline and a $20 billion nuclear power plant Russia is building in Turkey.
Russia's defense ministry meanwhile said it had suspended all cooperation with the Turkish military, including a hotline set up to share information on Russian air strikes in Syria, the TASS news agency reported.
"We are strategic partners ... 'Joint projects may be halted, ties could be cut'? Are such approaches fitting for politicians?," Erdogan said in a speech in Ankara.
"First the politicians and our militaries should sit down and talk about where errors were made and then focus on overcoming those errors on both sides. But instead, if we make emotional statements like this, that wouldn't be right."
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia was still awaiting a reasonable answer from Ankara on why it downed the fighter jet. Moscow insists it never left Syrian air space, but Ankara says it crossed the border despite repeated warnings.
The Turkish foreign ministry said diplomatic missions and Turkish business interests in Russia had come under attack and said Russia's ambassador in Ankara had been summoned in protest.
Erdogan said the Russian jet was shot down as an "automatic reaction" to the violation of Turkish air space, in line with standing orders given to the military.
Those instructions were a separate issue to disagreements with Russia over Syria policy, he said, adding Ankara would continue to support moderate rebels in Syria and Turkmen fighters battling President Assad's forces.
Erdogan told that Russia, not Turkey, should be the one to apologize for the incident. And in an interview with France 24, he said he had called Putin after the jet was shot down but that the Russian leader had not yet called him back.
Medvedev on Wednesday alleged that Turkish officials were benefiting from Islamic State oil sales, while Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said it was no secret that "terrorists" use Turkish territory.
"Shame on you. It's clear where Turkey buys its oil and gas ... Those who claim we are buying oil from Daesh like this must prove their claims. Nobody can slander this country," Erdogan said, using an Arabic acronym for Islamic State.
"If you are seeking the source of weaponry and financial power of Daesh, the first place to look is the Assad regime and countries that act with it," he said.
Moscow says its military involvement in Syria is aimed at battling terrorist groups including Islamic State, casting the campaign to a supportive Russian public as a moral crusade that must be completed despite obstruction from elsewhere.
Turkey and its allies say Russia's real aim is to prop up its ally Assad and that it has been bombing moderate opposition groups in areas of Syria like Latakia, where the jet was downed, and where there is little or no Islamic State presence.
Russian forces have shown no sign of backing down, launching a heavy bombardment against insurgent-held areas in Latakia on Wednesday, near where the jet crashed.
A Reuters correspondent on the Turkish side of the border saw rockets and tank shells being fired from government-controlled western Latakia eastwards into rebel-held territory, sending plumes of smoke rising from the wooded hillsides.
Turkey's action infuriated Russia, but Moscow's response has been carefully calibrated. There is little sign it wants a military escalation, or to jeopardize its main objective in the region: to rally international support for its view on how the conflict in Syria should be resolved.
But it clearly wants to punish Turkey economically.
The head of Russia's tourism agency, Rostourism, said cooperation with Turkey would "obviously" be halted. At least two large Russian tour operators had already said they would stop selling packages to Turkey after Russian officials advised holidaymakers against traveling to its resorts.
Russians are second only to Germans in terms of the numbers visiting Turkey, bringing in an estimated $4 billion a year in tourism revenues, which Turkey needs to help fund its gaping current account deficit.
Medvedev meanwhile said Russia may impose restrictions on food imports within days, having already increased checks of Turkish agriculture products, its first public move to curb trade.
Moscow banned most Western food imports in 2014 when Western countries imposed sanctions on Russia over its role in the Ukraine crisis, leading to supply disruptions as retailers had to find new suppliers and galloping inflation.
The row has also put a brake on new wheat deals between Russia, one of the world's largest wheat exporters, and Turkey, the largest buyer of Russian wheat.

Whole Army Can't Defend Against Terrorists: Farooq Abdullah

By on Sunday, November 29, 2015
The former chief minister of J-K and the president of national conference, Dr. Farooq Abdullah said if the whole Indian army deployed in J-K, the government cannot save us from the terrorists. He added, “Unless the talks between India and Pakistan are restored, the situation cannot be controlled. I am talking you today; tomorrow the terrorist can kill us; but whatever I speak now...is absolutely true.”
Abdullah claimed that neither so much merit in India that it took control of Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir; nor so in Pakistan that it could get back Jammu and Kashmir.
Abdullah had said on Friday that Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir will remain with Pakistan. “The media is less-listening,” he said them in the instructive mood.
He said on the issue of Aamir Khan that Aamir talked about the intolerance in India while media is posing the question of deserting the country. He said that the media must review the impact of its stand before reporting exclusive matter, which it seldom or never consider about.
Nawaz Sharif is the prime minister of Pakistan, but the army here has the real power. He added that, if Pak army intended to depose Nawaz, it can do so – since the army there has prevalent a phobia in people that nobody can save the Pakistan people from India.
Recalling the former prime minister, Atal Bihari Bajpai, farooq said that Atal Ji had said going there that India had accepted Pakistan sovereignty as a separate state and India wanted the friendly relation with Pak. Despite all these, Pakistan army has maintained a fear of India among the people of Pakistan.Bottom of Form
Many times proposal to solve the Kashmir issue is brought in parliament. Dr.Abdullah asked that many such proposals were introduced, but what did the parliament do about Pak-Occupied-Kashmir to get back so far?
He said America is not the friend of any country. It is merely the friend of its own, that sell the weapons to use on others. Farooq said that every election is weakening India.

 Ravichandran Ashwin

Score card
Third Test, Nagpur, day three
India 215 & 173:                  Dhawan 39, Tahir 5-38
South Africa 79 & 185:        Ashwin 7-66, Mishra 3-51
                         India won by 124 runs

Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took 7-66 as India beat South Africa by 124 runs to win the third Test and take a 2-0 series lead with one match to play.

South Africa began day three in Nagpur on 35-2, needing 310 to win, but were all out for 185 with two days to spare.
The defeat means the top-ranked Proteas lose an away Test series for the first time since losing in Sri Lanka in 2006.
India have won eight of their last nine home Tests - the other being the rain-hit drawn second Test in Bangalore.
All eight of those India victories - 4-0 against Australia, 2-0 against West Indies and the two wins in this series - have come inside three days.
A total of 33 of the 40 wickets in the Test, including all 20 South African wickets, fell to spinners, with man of the match Ashwin taking 12 in the game.
It is the fourth time in 31 Tests that Ashwin has taken at least 10 wickets, and it helped his side record a first series win over South Africa in 11 years.
He trapped both Dean Elgar and AB de Villiers leg before wicket early on day three but captain Hashim Amla (39) and Faf du Plessis (39) added 72 for the fifth wicket - South Africa's second highest stand of the entire series.
However, they did not find batting easy, adding just 21 runs in 19 overs after lunch and their 46.2 overs partnership was finally ended when leg-spinner Amit Mishra had Amla caught at gully by captain Virat Kohli.
Mishra (3-51) then bowled Du Plessis, who went for a pull shot but the ball kept low.
Ashwin took the last four wickets to fall on a dusty, deteriorating pitch - which was heavily criticised after 32 wickets fell within the first two days - to make sure of the series win.
India captain Kohli said: "It was a challenging wicket, definitely.
"It's all about application. You've just got to prepare accordingly, no excuses. Throughout the series you would have five to six good balls.
"Other than that it's been mental blocks or bad shots from the batsmen."
The fourth and final Test takes place from 3-7 December in Delhi.

The Indian Consumer Market Begins to Undergo Structural Change
By Shusuke WATANABE, Hiroko KIHARA, Wataru KADOBAYASHI and Muskan SONI
Nomura Research Institute
India's consumer market is undergoing continuous change. The number of middle- and high-income households (with minimum annual income of around 180,000 Indian rupees) is increasing rapidly, not only in metropolitan cities with populations in excess of four million, but also in cities with populations of only one million.
Even looking from an Asia-wide view, the scale of the middle- and high-income Indian markets as well as its growth potential is large as compared to the same in ASEAN countries. Thus, targeting only high-income households limits the overall scale of this market. However, taking an approach in which only low-income households are targeted by business providing solutions to social problems is more like an investment in the future rather than a generally adopted business strategy. Such an approach would take a long time to ensure a sufficiently large business scale and profitability. Thus, gaining access to the middle- and high-income markets that are already large in scale and have a high growth potential is essential for establishing a company's business in India's consumer market.
In this paper, home appliances is used as a representative consumer market. The following key points are required to access the middle-and high-income markets: ability to develop low-cost, high-performance products in which lifestyle characteristics are taken into consideration, ability to enable local procurement and production, and establishing strength in logistics, sales and distribution channels to ensure maximum penetration spreading over wide areas including rural India.
In order to break into the low-income market, it is essential to clearly narrow down the target consumers. If a company's sole purpose for entering this market is to generate profits, then it should target the "Next-MoP" (future middle of the economic pyramid) market that will grow rapidly as a result of the expansion of urban infrastructure.
For developing business not only in the Indian middle- and high-income markets but also in the Next-MoP market, the strategies for all these three markets should be integrated. In addition, consideration should also be given to positioning India as an export base for serving demand from South Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
