The Chinese Ambassador said “some Indian friends” had suggested trilateral cooperation comprising India, China and Pakistan under the aegis of the SCO, which was a “very constructive idea”.

India on Monday said matters related to India-Pakistan relations are purely bilateral in nature and that there is no scope for involvement of any third country, reacting to Chinese envoy Luo Zhaohui’s comments endorsing trilateral cooperation among India, China and Pakistan to resolve such issues.

The opposition Congress party also condemned the Chinese ambassador’s statement.

Endorsing the idea of trilateral cooperation between India, China and Pakistan under the aegis of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, Luo said it could “in the future” help resolve bilateral issues between New Delhi and Islamabad and help maintain peace.

In response to queries on the comments made by the Chinese Ambassador to India on a possible trilateral summit between India, China and Pakistan, ministry of external affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said India had not received any such suggestion from the Chinese government.

“We have seen reports on comments made by the Chinese Ambassador in this matter. We have not received any such suggestion from the Chinese government. We consider the statement as the personal opinion of the Ambassador. Matters related to India-Pakistan relations are purely bilateral in nature and have no scope for involvement of any third country,” he said.

Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari said the Government of India should also strongly condemn the “unwarranted suggestion” of the Chinese Ambassador and that all issues between India and Pakistan would be resolved as per the Shimla Agreement.

The Chinese Ambassador said “some Indian friends” had suggested trilateral cooperation comprising India, China and Pakistan under the aegis of the SCO, which was a “very constructive idea”.

“Security cooperation is one of the three pillars of the SCO. Some Indian friends suggested that China, India and Pakistan may have some kind of trilateral cooperation under the SCO,” he said in his keynote address on ‘Beyond Wuhan: How Far and Fast can China-India Relations Go’ at an event organised by the Chinese Embassy here.

Responding to a question on whether a trilateral meet between the Asian neighbours will help in solving the India-Pakistan dispute, he said he personally considered it “a good and constructive idea”.

Write What You Know

Marcia Strykowski

Writers are often told to write what we know rather than pretending to be in someone else’s shoes. I’m not sure how I feel about this. For the most part I get what it means, but I also think one can completely immerse themselves into a different lifestyle, time, place, or even person, especially if a lot of research is involved. As for myself, my characters and their situations are completely made-up, but I do tend to add in things that connect to my real life. For example, take my upcoming book, Roller Boy. I was trying to figure out where the whole idea came from, since I don’t have very much in common with Mateo. One small aspect, I realized, was we both enjoy eating Mexican food, and like Mateo, I take it gluten-free. Sorry if you’re reading this before lunch.As for roller-skating, I’m not good at…

El primer beso

EL BLOG DE MANUEL CERDÀ

Bes. Grimshaw, John Atkinson - The Lovers, 1874 “Los amantes” (1874), óleo de John Atkinson Grimshaw.

El camino que llevaba a la estación era tranquilo, apenas había unas pocas farolas que emitían una tenue luz. Tranquilo como la oscuridad, como el silencio. La cogí de la mano, ella apretó, con fuerza, la mía. Me paré de repente, nos paramos, sin saber por qué, posiblemente para que el camino no acabase nunca y estuviéramos siempre vagando, sin rumbo, sin destino, solos los dos, siempre caminando en una aparente oscuridad que no era falta de luz excepto para los demás, pues solamente podía apreciarse con los ojos del alma. Una alianza de los astros que nos protegían de todo mal. Para nosotros todo resplandecía, o así me lo pareció. Fue verdad, entonces.

Yo nunca había visto a Rosaura tan hermosa, tan radiante. Sin soltarnos de la mano nos alejamos de las pocas farolas que había a ambos lados del camino…

Autoconfianza

Relatos desde mi ventana

[email protected] hemos sufrido en algún momento de la vida la falta de confianza en nosotros [email protected] Aunque seamos poseedores de una gran autoestima y creamos que podemos con cualquier reto o dilema que nos encontremos, siempre surgirá algún imprevisto que nos haga dudar (a no ser que suframos del complejo de Narciso, del cual no voy a hablar ahora).

Y es que [email protected], como humanos que somos, tenemos momentos de debilidad. Podremos aparentar ser fuertes, decididos, asertivos, líderes;  y aunque seamos afortunados de poder decirnos que esa es la realidad, difícilmente será  así en todos los aspectos de la vida. Podremos ser verdaderos expertos en una materia que entrañe una supuesta dificultad y, sin embargo, nos moveremos como un “pulpo en un garaje” ante cualquier otra tarea insignificante. Esto es algo totalmente normal; si se diese el caso de que nada se interpusiese en nuestro camino, no estaríamos hablando de…

Oltre il dolore

ORME SVELATE

 

Ti immagino star male sul divano
con il dolore che cresce mano a mano
i demoni che assalgono la tua testa
sussurrandoti brutti pensieri piano piano
e quei tarli che restano dentro
allontanando anche il Paradiso
perché anche le stelle smettono di brillare
se tu ti senti così male,
eppure anche nel buio più nero
è possibile guardare ancora il cielo
illuminato dal tuo bagliore
devi ascoltare la tua parte migliore
leggère salgono bolle di sapone
memorie del tuo immenso candore,
aggrappati a quelle sfere trasparenti
lascia l’argilla e segui gli angeli splendenti.

Sacristan

La estaca clavada

Fiel guardián de la ortodoxia por el rabillo del ojo, cuida de que los turistas recorran el templo con el debido respeto. Este, dedicado a San Antolín presenta una arquitectura magnificente y adornado por una serie de retablos que duermen un sueño de siglos entre el residente aroma de  una gruesa capa de cera.

Supone el viajero que el patrono de Medina no tenga queja contra sus patrocinados.

Si bien es verdad que a tenor de lo escuchado no hubo peores reyes en la región que el primero de los Carlos y el segundo de los Felipes, a los que, embriagado por una desconocida osadía. Añadí por  cuenta propia a unos cuantos de la casa de Anjou y medio montón de los de Borbón. 

Incordura esa ronda porque bien sé que las paredes oyen , que no hay enemigo pequeño y que algunos mulos de los grandes de España son…

NOSTALGÍA

POESÍA JAPONESA DE ELFICAROSA.

La noche huele a primavera,
a piedra fresca,
a humo lejano de hojarasca.
Huele a gato, a farola,
a silencio y a montaña.

A comerse la boca,
me huele a abrazos sudorosos,
a soledades compartidas,
y no sé lo que tengo,
que recorro la noche
y cada vez me vienen más aromas.

Me huele a puta en aquella calle escondida,
donde la gente decente no pasa,
pero que en la oscuridad se escabullen
y abren la puerta.
Me huele a porros en aquel rincón
apoyados en ese coche desastrado.

Aromas a geranios en balcones
donde duermen familias
el sueño de los justos.
Me huele a almas rotas,
a pesadillas de un hombre hecho jirones.

Me huele a muerte, a crisantemos
en tumbas ahora solitarias.
En el delirio de las sombras
siento una nostalgia que me domina,
nostalgia de tu olor, ese aroma
tuyo que me embriaga aún.

Blunder!

Lasting Joy Club

When we make a serious mistake or commit an error in judgement that sometimes causes irreversible, or even painful consequences, we tend to start a self-blaming cycle: “Why did I not think…  Why have I not anticipated… How could I?” This kind of anguish, while quite understandable, stands in the way of constructive action (based on D. Petrov). Tomorrow, at our monthly get-together, we will learn and practice a fun and fantastic three-step exercise called A Blunder! inspired by  a great blogger, a Russian psychologist Dmitry Petrov(https://thaoless.ru/2018/05/24/oshibochka/).

Great white sharks dive deep, new research

Dear Kitty. Some blog

Great white sharks dive deep into warm-water whirlpools in the Atlantic

June 18, 2018

Summary: Tracking data from two great white sharks reveals that they spend more time deep inside warm-water eddies, suggesting that’s where they like to feed.

It’s always good to know where great white sharks are likely to be swimming. That’s true if you’re a nervous beachgoer, a fishing boat trying to avoid illegal bycatch, or a marine biologist hoping to conserve this vulnerable species.

A study from the University of Washington and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution looked at the movements of adult female white sharks in the Gulf Stream and North Atlantic Ocean. Results…
