Putin: Using Al-Qaeda in Syria like sending Gitmo inmates to fight (EXCLUSIVE)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 8, 2012

In an RT global exclusive premiere, President Putin gives his first post-inauguration interview, speaking in depth with RT’s Kevin Owen ahead of the APEC summit in Vladivostok.

Touching upon a range of issues, he discusses topics from the Pussy Riot trial to the Julian Assange case, from the upcoming US elections to the situation in Syria.

RT: What I want to talk about first of all is the ongoing at the moment APEC summit. You’ll be going there very shortly – in Vladivostok because it’s the first time that Russia has held it, a prestigious event. But it always begs the question – what’s actually achieved at these events, events like that, like the G8, G20?

Now, though APEC is primarily an economic vessel, there’s a lot of politics involved as well. And of course a lot of the key players including you, including America, a lot of key players disagree on some very key issues. I’m thinking about Syria, I’m thinking about missile defense, I’m thinking about Iran. Is there a danger that the politics may stifle, get in the way of the big economic deals that the very same key players are hoping to sign at this summit or at least talk about signing?

लुम्बिनी भ्रमण बर्ष २०१२ मनाउन गरिएको निर्णयको सम्बन्धमा प्रेस बिज्ञप्ति

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 19, 2011

बुद्धद्धारा प्रतिपादित सुख र शान्ति प्राप्तीका लागि अबलम्बन गरिनु पर्ने सिद्धान्त र बिधिहरु बुद्धिज्मको रुपमा बिस्व प्रसिद्ध भएका कारण बुद्ध जन्मनु भएको स्थानको बिस्वब्यापी महत्व छ  । त्यसैले ब्यक्तिगत खुशी र सुखीदेखि बिस्व शान्तिसम्मका लागि उत्प्रेरक, प्रेरणादायी र आस्थाका पुन्ज उहाँ करीब २६०० बर्ष अघि जन्मेर पनि यो बैज्ञानिक युगमा समेत आजको अशान्तमय बिस्व परिबेशका कारण संपूर्ण जाती, धर्म, सम्प्रदायका बीच झन झन महत्व बढदै जाने सदाबहार सर्ब स्वीकार्य महामानबका रुपमा स्थापित हुनुहुन्छ । त्यसैले युनेस्कोले बुद्ध जन्मस्थल लुम्बिनीलाई बिस्व संपदा सूचिमा  समाबेश गरेको हो १९९७ मा । बिस्वमा करीब ५० करोड बुद्धिस्ट छन भने बिस्वभरि बुद्धिज्मलाई धर्मभन्दा बिज्ञानको रुपमा लिने पनि लाखौं छन । र उक्त संख्याको ०.१ प्रतिशत मात्र पर्यटक बर्षेनी भित्र्याउने बातावरण तयार गर्न सकियो भने पनि बर्षमा ५ लाखभन्दा बढी पर्यटक भित्रिने देखिन्छ र यसबाट मात्रै अरबौं रुपयाँ देश भित्र्याउन सकिने देखिन्छ । Read the rest of this entry »

Nepal for sale in Package

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on August 24, 2011

Beginning 1950s, Nepal as a nation-state is being run in package. Several insulting gifts in the form of unequal treaties and agreements, understanding, and joint communiqué have been pouring in since those horrifying old days from the newly born Republic of India, 1947.

The fresh and the most abhorrently insulting one, late Girija Prasad Koirala (Rest in peace) brought in from New Delhi a sort of 12 point agreement in “package” which has been taking its heavy toll. Late Koirala invited the Indian regime in Nepal in package since then. His 12 point colleagues, thanks, have kept the tradition kicking and alive. Nepalese obedience. Read the rest of this entry »

3B may be big amount for Nepal but given the gravity of urge to put the livelihood of people living in a place where a philosophy of eternal peace and civilization took its birth some 2560 years ago is not enough. Apple corporation has 80B cash in hand, worlds most valuable company on the otherhand US treasury and government is bailed by China! If 3B is real from China to Lumbini, so what? Have writer been to Lumbini? Or Nepal? Nepal is Chinas immidate neighbor! Buddhim is China’s national religion too!

Water flows downward because of gravity which is natural force! Money flows towards where there is opportunity! Where is oppurnity? In a island where people do not ware sleepers? It’s an attitude driven by prespective of gain or interest or gratitude! Who on the earth is largest trade partner with US and India, China? Then why so big huha from India (if there is any) if China aims to be largest trade partner to Nepal too! It’s India’s problem they did not had enough time to regard their neighbor’s best along with their economic prosperity! India’s rulers from past 20 years or more thought its government officers expatriate childrens earned money, transferred skills and network management is only biggest job for them! India suppose to lead in it’s varried roles in all fronts with it’s neighbor in South Asia as per expectation from the globe, could not delivered. Simply no serious thought given on formulating and improving policy towards its neighbor. Just lost in the greed of few administrative diplomat’s parrot taught old school of thought left by British India so called India’s foreign policy! Read the rest of this entry »

APEC team makes first Lumbini visit

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on August 12, 2011

Representatives of China’s Asia Pacific Exchange and Cooperation (APEC) Foundation toured Lumbini on Thursday. The visit led by APEC Joint Chairman Colin Heseltine marks the first visit by the organisation after it announced a US$ 3 billion project to develop Lumbini as a global centre for Buddhism study.

Only on Wednesday, Taiwan-based communication company, TCCL, had returned after wrapping up the preliminary study on a modern communication facility for the proposed project.

“APEC is planning to transform Lumbini into an international hub for Buddhism, while helping in the preservation of ancient ruins and artifacts related to Buddhism,” said Heseltine.

He said APEC would equip Lumbini with modern communication technology and provide its assistance in infrastructure development works in the first phase. APEC could also launch various income generating activities to lift the economic standard of local people in the future, Heseltine said.

Majhilal Tharu Thainat, treasurer of Lumbini Development Trust, said that Heseltine’s visit helped confirm the APEC’s plan for Lumbini.
