Seoul: North Korea test-fired a ballistic missile on Friday,in apparent defiance of a US push for tougher international sanctions to curb the Asian country’s nuclear threat "North Korea fired an unidentified missile from a site in the vicinity of Bukchang in Pyeongannam-do (South Pyeongan Province) early Fridaymorning" the South Korean news agency Yonhap reported adding that the missile "is estimated to have failed" A US defence official confirmed North Korea had fired a missile North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un AFP file image The launch comes with tensions high on the Korean peninsula with US President Donald Trump warning of the risk of a "major conflict" It came just hours after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson addressed the UN Security Council for the first time called for a global campaign of pressure on Pyongyang —with China playing a major role —to halt its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes "Failing to act now on the most pressing security issue in the world may bring catastrophic consequences" he warned He repeated Washington’s threat that US military options were "on the table" Tillerson said China had "unique" leverage over its communist ally and neighbour But Beijing pushed back arguing that it was unrealistic to expect one country to solve the conflict "The use of force does not solve differences and will only lead to bigger disasters" Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told the council His country he said should not be "a focal point of the problem on the peninsula" and stressed that "the key to solving the nuclear issue on the peninsula does not lie in the hands of the Chinese side" Russia joined China in saying a military response would be disastrous and appealing for a return to talks and de-escalation Military action was "completely unacceptable" Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told the council A miscalculation could have "frightening consequences" he warned But Tillerson argued that diplomacy had to be backed with credible muscle "Diplomatic and financial levers of power will be backed up by willingness to counteract North Korean aggression with military action if necessary" he said "The threat of a North Korean nuclear attack on Seoul or Tokyo is real and it is likely only a matter of time before North Korea develops the capability to strike the US mainland" Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un are locked in an ever-tighter spiral of threat counter-threat and escalating military preparedness The US is deploying a naval strike group led by an aircraft carrier to the Korean peninsula and a missile-defense system called Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) will be operational "within days" according to officials North Korea meanwhile said it has conducted its biggest ever artillery drill and threatened to "bury at sea" the US aircraft carrier Speculation has mounted it could soon carry out a sixth nuclear test The meeting of the top UN body laid bare major differences among key powers over the way to address the North Korea crisis Over the past 11 years the Security Council has imposed six sets of sanctions on Pyongyang —two adopted last year— to significantly ramp up pressure and deny Kim’s regime the hard currency revenue needed for his military programmes But UN sanctions experts have repeatedly told the council the measures have had little impact because they have been poorly implemented Tillerson called on all countries to downgrade or sever diplomatic relations with North Korea and impose targeted sanctions on entities and individuals supporting its missile and nuclear programme The United States is ready to impose sanctions on third countries where companies or individuals are found to have helped North Korea’s military programs he said China instead wants Pyongyang to freeze its military programs in exchange for a halt to US-South Korean annual drills "Now is the time to seriously consider talks" said Wang But Tillerson was blunt in saying it was up to North Korea to take the first concrete steps "We will not negotiate our way back to the negotiating table" he said "We will not reward their bad behaviour with talks" The United States Russia and China took part in six-party talks on North Korea’s denuclearisation from 2003 to 2009 along with Japan South Korea and Pyongyang Former World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) chief Dick Pound warned on Wednesday that Russia’s international ban may still be in force at the Rio Olympic Games Russian athletes were banned from competing internationally last year after an independent commission chaired by Pound found evidence of state-sponsored doping in the country The Canadian told the Tackling Doping in Sport Conference in London that there remained a "wall of denial" about the extent of doping in Russian sport File picture of World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) former president Dick Pound Reuters "The Russians seem to assume the controversy will disappear and there should be no question of their participation (in the Olympics) in Rio" he said Instead of concentrating on the reforms needed in order to return to the athletics fold in time for this year’s Games Pound said Russia was "rearranging deckchairs on the Titanic" He added: "My guess is that Russia may not make it back for Rio The IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations) and WADA are not going to risk their reputations by rolling over and playing dead" Speaking at the same event WADA president Craig Reedie said the agency is prepared to extend its investigation into doping in Russian athletics to other sports in the country United States-based Russian tennis superstar Maria Sharapova is facing a ban after testing positive for the banned drug Meldonium and Reedie said that WADA would not hesitate to probe doping allegations in other sports "If evidence comes to light as part of the independent testing programme under way in Russia and our discussions with RUSADA (the Russian Anti-doping Agency) and if those discussions warrant further investigation then we will take action" Reedie said Reflecting on a year that also saw football’s governing body FIFA plunged into a corruption scandal Reedie said: "The public’s confidence in sport was shattered in 2015 like never before "The public mood has soured cynicism has prevailed and there’s a general feeling that they’re all at it" Reedie called for more investment in anti-doping programmes by sport’s governing bodies saying he was "perplexed the sports movement is reluctant to provide the investment required" AFP By:

said that the scorecard for the bypolls held in 18 assembly constituencies across four states would appear to provide the beleaguered opposition some reason for cheer The Congress and its allies have won 10 of the 18 seats while the BJP has lost seats it held in Karnataka Madhya Pradesh and Bihar The Congress appears to have regained some lost ground in Karnataka where it had won just nine of the 28 Lok Sabha seats in the 2014 general election It also wrested a seat from the BJP in Madhya Pradesh while retaining Patiala in Punjab Coming soon after the 3-0 sweep in the Uttarakhand by-polls Monday’s tally could be consolation for a party that has shown few signs of life much less a fightback since its Lok Sabha rout The big story of these bypolls was Bihar Here a “maha gathbandhan” or grand alliance was put together between Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) Lalu Prasad’s RJD and the Congress to fight the common enemy the BJP That the BJP won only four of the 10 seats — down from six in 2010 with the JD(U) as ally and not long after its Lok Sabha sweep — will undoubtedly be read by the promoters of the “secular” alliance as indicating that helped by caste arithmetic it is workable if not formidable But the real test for the grand alliance begins now Crucial questions about its leadership and agenda that could be evaded or relegated in the bypolls are now likely to come to the fore During the bypoll campaign Lalu had arrogated to himself the role of big brother to Nitish an unsubtle hint that the RJD would seek to dominate the JD(U) That the RJD won three of the four seats it contested and with reasonable margins — while the JD(U) lost two of its four — could embolden Lalu to raise the pitch The alliance will also have to find a way to address the dissonance in the agendas of its lead players While Lalu and Nitish make much of their common ideological ancestry it is no secret that the “social justice” of Nitish raj was imbued with a promise of good governance while Lalu is the “backward caste messiah” who was also seen to preside over “jungle raj” that oppressed the poor and backward the most Should it hold the grand alliance will need to convince the voter that it has a shared agenda and vision that goes beyond merely keeping the BJP out of office For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | New Delhi |

existing building blocks for domestic actions in key sectors based on the principle of co-benefits (Source: PTI photo) Related News India is in the midst of an interesting moment in climate politics UN negotiations in Lima are intended to lay the base for a new 2015 agreement to be signed in Paris next December As part of this process all countries including India are expected to submit over the next few months their intended national “contributions” to the struggle against climate change A recent joint announcement by China and the United States on their future actions to limit greenhouse gases preceded by an EU announcement has focused attention on what countries can and should do to limit greenhouse gas emissions Perhaps invariably this places the spotlight on India with several media comments asking what India can do How should India react to this questioning The simple answer is: we shouldn’t Slipping into a reactive mode and seeking to meet benchmarks set by others will fail to reflect both India’s realities and the potential for constructive politics in India’s climate stance Instead India should seek to lay out its own benchmarks for what counts as effective action and urge others to match up To begin with India should resist the temptation to say we will do what China does but with a time lag: the “China + x” rule China has committed to “peaking” its emissions by 2030 but a reflexive adherence to a peaking year for India is a bad idea First we simply do not have a credible analytical basis for determining a year beyond which our greenhouse gas emissions would not rise Research underway at the Centre for Policy Research reviewing existing energy and climate scenarios show that few models extend beyond 2030 let alone explicitly analyse a peaking year Given the vast amount of infrastructure and housing yet to be built the population yet to be served with quality commercial energy and the requirements of secure energy for development models are severely challenged in credibly predicting a peaking year Instead any such year will be strongly dependent on assumptions about technology and development paths in the distant future which often amount to guesswork This is hardly a responsible basis for binding future development Second the political value of stating a peaking year strongly diminishes the more distant the stated year is since a country has more years to expand emissions China’s announcement of 2030 is hardly reassuring since it provides no indication of the emissions growth in the years until 2030 Add say 10-20 years for India and the announcement becomes near meaningless This is a no-win proposition: bind India with an uncomfortably tight year or announce a safely distant year and invite criticism Third India is not China and is unlikely to become the next China India’s emissions are much lower fossil-fuel reserves are less plentiful and our fossil-based electricity capacity addition is unlikely to grow as fast as China’s because of the necessary checks of healthy democratic debate It is thus unhelpful to invite assessment on equivalent terms to China What then should India do First India should base its contributions on existing building blocks for domestic actions in key sectors based on the principle of co-benefits These include promoting solar and wind energy enhanced energy efficiency and other measures already proposed in the 12th Plan These actions are not yet fully developed to their potential but they do form the ingredients of a concrete set of contributions The process of fleshing out these ideas is best undertaken within the broader context of development energy and environment planning This will ensure that development objectives are not jeopardised and that climate objectives are brought into the mainstream with a correspondingly higher chance of being fully implemented Following a co-benefits approach also provides a way to separate what India will do for domestic considerations and what additional action could be undertaken with international climate finance Second because aggregate greenhouse gas emissions do matter India also needs an economy-wide announcement For this an update of India’s existing emissions intensity target announced at Copenhagen should be undertaken built around a bottom-up analysis of the various domestic sectoral actions and based on robust and deliberated analytical work While the economy-wide number will provide an outer envelope the real thrust of India’s contribution would lie in the sectoral measures Based on these two pillars India can credibly argue that it is taking early and substantial action on climate mitigation This approach will have domestic credibility because it is rooted in development policy and not climate policy as an extraneous imposition It will have international credibility because it emphasises immediate action that avoids lock-in to more emissions intensive development paths is embedded in national policy processes with greater chances of implementation and collectively likely to result in a substantial “bending” of the emissions curve By these benchmarks of early certain and impactful action this proposed course of action is far more robust than either the Chinese or US announcements The only downside of this approach is that it requires India to be deliberate and not reactive and take the time to carefully assemble a credible contribution to climate action that is embedded in the development process This seems a price well worth paying Dubash is a senior fellow
