    Japan’s Nikkei dips, ends four-session winning streak

    Posted in japan apostille

    The Nikkei .N225 ended 0.1 percent lower at 9,142.64 after surging 5.7 percent in the previous four sessions, driven by a call by Liberal Democratic Party leader (LDP) Shinzo Abe for the Bank of Japan to further stimulate the ailing economy, including pushing interest rates to zero or below zero.

    His campaign has weakened the yen against the dollar, fuelling a bounce in the shares of Japanese exporters, which face sluggish demand for their products amid stuttering global growth.

    Exporters that came under pressure on Tuesday included Canon Inc (7751.T), Honda Motor Co (7267.T), TDK Corp (6762.T) and construction machinery maker Komatsu Ltd (6301.T), all down between 0.9 and 1.1 percent.

    Panasonic Corp (6752.T) sagged 3.8 percent as investors locked in profits and after Deutsche Bank cut its target price on the consumer electronics maker.

    “A lot of the sectors have been overbought out there … It’s just a healthy consolidation,” a senior dealer at a foreign brokerage said. “There are still a lot of expectations for the LDP.”

    In its last meeting before the December 16 election, the Bank of Japan kept monetary policy steady on Tuesday, standing its ground for now in the face of calls from the country’s likely next prime minister to pursue “unlimited” easing.

    “Investors have started to review what Abe has said and are being careful not to have too many expectations for everything he has said,” said Takuya Takahashi, a market analyst at Daiwa Securities. “The market is skeptical that the BOJ would give in to every demand.”

    The broader Topix .TOPX index was flat at 762.04 in relatively active trade, with 1.87 billion shares changing hands, down from Monday’s 2.01 billion but up from last week’s average of 1.79 billion.


    Mobile operators Softbank Corp (9984.T) and KDDI Corp (9433.T) rose 1.9 and 0.7 percent respectively, while index heavyweight Fast Retailing (9983.T), the owner of casual fashion chain Uniqlo, added 0.3 percent.

    Shippers .ISHIP.T rose 1.8 percent as the top performing sector after the Baltic Exchange’s main sea freight index .BADI, which tracks rates for ships carrying dry bulk commodities, rose for a seventh straight day on Monday after increased rates in the capsize and panamax shipping segments.

    Morgan Stanley MUFG said Japanese equities would benefit from a weaker yen through the expected rise in company earnings per share. The benchmark Nikkei is up 8.1 percent this year, lagging a 10.3 percent rise in the U.S. S&P 500 .INX and a 9.8 percent gain in the pan-European STOXX Europe 600 .STOXX.

    “Under a weaker yen scenario, we prefer IT, industrials, discretionary and financials over staples,” the brokerage said in a note.

    But it added that a soft yen and setting an inflation target would not be enough to change investors’ expectations for longer-term return on equity (ROE) or growth in Japan. “The latter depend on fiscal improvement, and on higher nominal GDP, tax revenue and wages,” it added.

    Japanese stocks carry a 12-month forward ROE of 7.3 percent, much lower than S&P 500’s 15 percent and STOXX Europe 600’s 12.5, data from Thomson Reuters Datastream showed.

    Within the financial sector, NKSJ Holdings (8630.T) sank 4.4 percent after the non-life insurer forecast a full-year net loss of 28 billion yen ($345 million), versus its previous estimate of a profit of 24 billion yen, to reflect a lower assumption for net capital gains due to an increase in impairment losses. ($1 = 81.1350 Japanese yen)


    Rebel Group in Colombia Announces Cease-Fire

    Posted in colombia apostille

    BOGOTÁ, Colombia — Colombia’s main rebel group announced a unilateral two-month cease-fire on Monday, as guerrilla representatives sat down with government negotiators in Havana for peace talks aimed at ending a nearly 50-year war.

    The government did not immediately respond to the cease-fire announcement.

    President Juan Manuel Santos has repeatedly said that his government would not declare a truce during negotiations with the group, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, known as the FARC. He hopes to avoid mistakes made in an earlier round of talks that ended in 2002, in which the FARC used a lengthy truce to gain strength.

    The two-month cease-fire was announced by the head of the FARC negotiating team, Iván Márquez.



    Reading a communiqué, he said all guerrilla units in Colombia were ordered to stop offensive military activities, including the sabotage of infrastructure, beginning Tuesday and lasting until Jan. 20.

    The communiqué, which was posted on the FARC’s Web site, said that the cease-fire pledge was meant to “strengthen the climate of understanding necessary so that the parties that are starting the dialogue achieve the purpose desired by all Colombians.”

    The government’s head negotiator, Humberto de la Calle, said before leaving Bogotá for Havana on Sunday that “there will be no concessions of a military character nor a cease-fire.”

    He added, “We are aware of the pain and anguish caused by the conflict, but in the past, the cease-fire has created advantages for the guerrillas that cannot be repeated.”

    The peace talks got off to an official start in Oslo last month, when negotiators met to agree on basic rules for the negotiations. The talks in Havana on Monday were the first to focus on an agenda of five points that the two sides previously agreed would serve as the outline for an eventual settlement.

    Rural development leads the agenda. The conflict in Colombia had its origins in the unequal distribution of land in rural areas and the economic disadvantages of poor farmers.

    The other four points include participation in the political process by demobilized guerrillas; an end to the fighting, including the laying down of arms by the guerrillas; drug trafficking; and the rights of victims of the conflict.

    Defense Minister Juan Carlos Pinzón on Monday dismissed the truce and said the military would “continue working with full decision to pursue these individuals.”


    Russia upset by Security Council silence on Gaza

    Posted in degree apostille for russia, russia apostille

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Russia’s U.N. ambassador on Monday expressed frustration that the Security Council has remained silent about the escalating violence in Gaza between Israel and Hamas as the United States has blocked any action.

    Russian Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said Morocco had circulated a proposed press statement as early as last Thursday but foot-dragging by one council member meant it ‘‘is still bogged down.’’

    Churkin said, ‘‘To me, it looks like a filibuster attempt.’’

    He would not tell reporters outside the Security Council on Monday which nation was blocking the press statement, which must be adopted unanimously. But he said anyone guessing it was the United States would be ‘‘a connoisseur’’ of Security Council politics.

    ‘‘One member of the Security Council, I’m sure you can guess which, indicated quite transparently that they will not be prepared to go along with any reaction of the Security Council. Somehow, allegedly, that would hurt the current efforts carried out by Egypt in the region,’’ Churkin said.

    After Monday night council consultations, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice noted that the Egyptian government, President Barack Obama and others are working through all channels to broker an end to the violence.

    ‘‘We think it’s vitally important that this council, by its action, or non-action, is reinforcing the prospects for an agreed cessation’’ of hostilities, she said.

    ‘‘That’s got to be agreed between the parties to be meaningful or sustainable,’’ Rice said. ‘‘That is our principle objective in these discussions.’’

    The sticking point in early versions of the Moroccan draft statement was that they omitted a clear reference to the months of rocket attacks on Israeli land prior to Israel’s air strikes last week in Gaza, several Western diplomats said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the issue had been referred back to their capitals.

    They said that was unbalanced, and rejected a compromise that simply made reference to the problems ‘‘in southern Israel as well as Gaza’’ as being too oblique a reference to the ongoing Hamas rocket campaign against Israel.

    The final Moroccan draft was sent for overnight review by capitals, which have until 9 a.m. (1400 GMT) to voice any objections.

    ‘‘We do not accept that the Security Council remains on the margins,’’ Moroccan Ambassador Mohammed Loulichki said.

    ‘‘We will be getting instructions overnight on the draft on the table,’’ Rice told reporters.

    Meanwhile, Russia introduced a resolution calling for a cease-fire and halt to violence; expressing support for international and regional mediation efforts; and urging the Palestinians and Israelis to resume overall Mideast peace talks. It does not have any explicit reference to the Hamas rocket attacks leading up to the Israeli air strikes of last week, an issue the European diplomats said was essential to any statement.

    Churkin said he would insist that the council proceed to a vote on that, possibly as soon as Tuesday afternoon, if the press statement failed in the morning council meeting. A resolution would have to pass with 9 of the 15 council members’ votes, and without a veto by any permanent member — the United States, Britain, France, China or Russia.

    At Egypt’s request, the Security Council held an unusual closed-door emergency debate last Wednesday night, which did not produce any statement or resolution. In that meeting, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice deplored the violence but made clear that the United States supported Israel’s right to defend itself against Hamas rocket attacks launched from Gaza.

    Russia is also calling for an urgent meeting of the ‘‘Quartet’’ consulting on Mideast peace — the United States, Russia, European Union and United Nations. But it was unclear what the Quartet could achieve if the United States and Europe were out of step.

    Meanwhile, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon arrived in Cairo to begin talks aimed at de-escalating the violence.

    His spokesman, Martin Nesirky, said in a teleconference call that Ban planned to have a working dinner with the Egyptian foreign minister, Mohammed Kamel Amr, Monday night.

    On Tuesday, he said, Ban would meet Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, the prime minister and the secretary-general of the Arab League.

    In the following days, Ban will visit Jerusalem for talks with Premier Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders, and will go to Ramallah to speak with Palestinian Authority leader Abbas.
