Foreign Minister to brief House after clamourFormer secret service chief says heliport at Akrotiri dates back decades By Elias HazouTHE government’s continued silence on the reported existence of an American ‘airbase’ on the island only served to feed the opposition’s curiosity on Thursday as they demanded answers.President Nicos Anastasiades demurred when asked about the ‘secret’ American base.“Why should I be answerable when even the US State Department itself was unaware until recently when a report came out,” Anastasiades told a journalist.The base was likely used for humanitarian purposes, he said, adding that it is well known Cyprus provides these facilities to foreign countries like France and Germany.But he avoided directly addressing the question of whether the Cyprus government knew about the US operation.Earlier this week ABC News, citing a US government document, said the US State Department spent some $70 million on the base that was “quickly set up and served little clear purpose before its quiet closing last year.”ABC said the base, established in September 2013 and closed in August 2017, hosted five helicopters and approximately 40 government contractors at a cost of about $20 million per year, according to a recent report from the State Department Office of the Inspector General (OIG).The OIG report stated that the base “provided the department a regional contingency capability with a focus on air bridge support to Embassy Beirut and assisted in the transportation and (if needed) the evacuation of COM personnel from the embassy.”But with the administration here staying tight-lipped since the story broke on Wednesday, opposition politicians grew impatient.“We want to know what these helicopters were used for. For offensive, surveillance or humanitarian purposes?” asked Greens MP Giorgos Perdikis.As the pressure mounted, foreign minister Nicos Christodoulides accepted a summons to brief parliament on the issue.In a brief statement, the foreign ministry said Christodoulides agreed to appear before a House committee and answer questions.The statement did not say when.The House foreign affairs committee is scheduled to convene next on October 23.However, on that day Christodoulides will be attending the National Council meeting taking place at the presidential palace.Therefore the most likely date for the parliamentary briefing is October 30, chair of the House foreign affairs committee Giorgos Lillikas told the Cyprus Mail.Asked whether it would be an open or closed session, Lillikas said that it depended on the foreign minister.On Thursday, speculation that the US helicopters were based in Akrotiri, within the Sovereign Base Areas (SBAs) appeared to be confirmed when local media published screenshots taken from Google Earth.The photos purport to depict Apache and Chinook helicopters parked next to a hangar in Akrotiri.Andreas Pentaras, former head of the Secret Service was far more forthcoming.Speaking to the Sigma channel, he said that what is being referred to as a ‘base’ is more accurately a heliport at Akrotiri that dates back decades.“The satellite images depict a heliport that was built in the mid-1960s. It was then that a deal was struck between Archbishop Makarios and the United States allowing American U2 spy planes to make use of the British bases.“This necessitated aircraft support and the installation of auxiliary services, including helicopters,” he explained.The former top spy stressed that he was citing information available in the public domain, and was not revealing classified material.He said his information about the heliport in Akrotiri and its use by American U2 planes flying surveillance missions over the Middle East comes from the book “The Wrong Horse” by Lawrence Stern.According to Pentaras, each day the secret service produces a classified report about the numbers and types of aircraft at all airports across the Republic.On whether the Cyprus government’s consent should be sought whenever a third party (not Britain) makes use of the SBAs, Pentaras said that evidently the tacit agreement made by Makarios is still in force.In other words, he explained, if Nicosia were now to demand to be informed about the presence of third-party forces utilising the SBAs, it would need to formally denounce the 1960s deal.The details of the arrangement are still classified, and most likely nothing exists in writing, said Pentaras.For his part, former foreign minister Ioannis Kasoulides sought to downplay the affair.He said semantics were part of the problem.“When Americans talk of a ‘base’ they mean something different than we do. To them, it simply means a place from where their helicopters were based. It is not the same as the concept of the British bases [in Cyprus] as we understand it.”According to Kasoulides, Cyprus and the United Kingdom have a courtesy agreement where the latter inform the government whenever the British bases host foreign military personnel or operations.“No one came to me to tell me about something like that. I saw no document to that effect. I did not know anything about it.”The Cyprus News Agency contacted the US embassy in Cyprus, but it likewise declined comment.

Top News After eight long months of intense negotiations with various stakeholders of Sassoon Docks a plan to redevelop one of Mumbai’s oldest and most famous waterfronts into a modern fishing village has been prepared The new design will include an air-conditioned fish market a one-storey museum and a space for visitors to enjoy fishing among other tourist activities The draft plan comprises an amphitheater a food street and a floor to view the Arabian Sea Plans to redesign the docks have been delayed mainly due to friction between fishermen groups “One of the main problems is that there are fights between locals (of south Mumbai) and those who come from Versova mostly to sell at Sassoon Docks” said Sanjay Bhatia Mumbai Port Trust chairman In order to resolve the issues at Sassoon Docks a nine-member core committee was constituted by Bhatia A majority of the committee comprise representatives from fishermen communities who are in consensus to revive Sassoon Docks and make it more attractive to tourists “There are several issues that have been highlighted regarding various fishermen groups There are facilities in Crawford market Malad Dadar and now also in Versova to sell fish in retail Why should their fish mix with our fish… All these ideas discussed are on paper and need to be institutionalised … today there is a lot of dirt and muck at the docks which the majority of us want to be cleaned” said Suresh Dhanu a member of the committee Bhatia said: “Nothing will move forward till the fishermen’s issues are addressed” According to the new draft plan the clock tower arch entrance would continue to be the main entrance and would lead to a large circular museum that would exhibit several features of Sassoon Docks The museum will be a new construction from where visitors can view the Arabian Sea from the first floor On the ground floor of the museum “authentic looking” figures dressed as fishermen who are fishing or Banjara women peeling or drying fish would be showcased Once a tourist approaches a particular figure a door behind the model would lead the visitor to the real section where the same work can be seen at Sassoon Docks “For instance behind the Banjaras a path would lead the tourists to another one-storey building where Banjaras will operate out of as opposed to the current unhygienic set up where they work openly on the roads” said an official There would be restoration of the main godown of the docks Besides the roads being widened and paved a waste management plan would be adopted to regulate the waste produced “It is going to a be massive task (to revamp) because Sassoon Docks is dirty” Bhatia said Officials said that a new three storey construction would come up near the main road of the docks that would rehabilitate those who were leased spaces by the Mumbai Port Trust and are affected by the revamp “The revamps will do away with those garages at the docks’ entrance and all other establishments that don’t pay rent to the Mumbai Port Trust” a senior official said Besides the design of Sassoon Docks no decision has been taken with respect to marketing or financing the revamp project officials clarified “We are still exploring the tourism potential of Sassoon Docks without any additional floor space index added to the area or any disruption to the heritage and historic value of the docks” said a senior official

its crippling impact on the economy (tourism, the main revenue earner and employment creator for Egypt has shrunk to less than one-fourth of its peak levels) and the lurking fear of a Syria-like violent social conflict if the Muslim Brotherhood were to return to power have led most Egyptians to believe that their country will be safe only if a strong leader comes to the helm Their hopes are pinned on el-Sisi the current army chief and defence minister Thanks to the tough action he took on Morsi and his followers he has suddenly become a cult figure a saviour of Egypt indeed the person most Egyptians want as their next president Posters eulogising him are visible everywhere in Cairo There are el-Sisi T-shirts on sale in streets “Is this orchestrated by the military” I asked my friends in Cairo They are by no means supporters of the military takeover They crave democracy the original promise of the Tahrir movement In private conversations they strongly oppose restrictions on the media and the torture of imprisoned Brotherhood workers Yet all of them are unanimous in saying “No this show of support for el-Sisi is not orchestrated It is authentic” Unlike his predecessors Morsi was a democratically elected president However the undeniably broad public support for the army takeover is a measure of how quickly he and the Brotherhood incurred the wrath of a majority of the Egyptian population because of their own undemocratic untrustworthy and socially polarising rule Why did Muslim-majority Egypt rise in revolt against the Muslim Brotherhood I put this question to Professor Mahmood Azab who serves as an advisor to the Grand Imam of Al-Azar a 1000-year-old globally respected centre of Islamic learning He said “Muslims in Egypt believe in moderate Islam They believe in pluralism and peaceful co-existence with their Christian brethren They are also proud of their pre-Islamic civilisational heritage All this is unacceptable to the Muslim Brotherhood who want to impose their extremist ideology of Islam on Egypt A peculiar circumstance in the aftermath of the 2011 revolution helped them come to power But the Egyptian people soon realised that the Brotherhood was exploiting Islam for its own narrow political and social agenda It even branded all those Muslims opposed to it as ‘infidels’ It became so unpopular that over 30 million people came onto the streets all over the country demanding its ouster from power” Here is a lesson the BJP could learn in India If a party plays polarising politics in the name of the majority community it could be spurned by a majority of the people belonging to that very community Here is also a heartening lesson for women in Muslim societies around the world Egyptian women played a pivotal role in bringing down the Muslim Brotherhood government Suzy el-Geneidy assistant chief editor of Al-Ahramnewspaper told me: “This is because Egyptian women whose struggles have won them an important place in public life felt threatened by the Brotherhood’s extremist agenda to disempower them in the name of Islam Women in our country are highly religious But they don’t like the Brotherhood’s coercive ways” Interestingly women have become el-Sisi’s ardent supporters I heard an explanation for this curious phenomenon from Osama Diab a researcher-activist with the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights which is critical of the human rights violations under the current army-led ruling establishment “There is no doubt” he said “that el-Sisi has rare charisma People especially women admire him because he is seen as a strong leader But they also admire him because they see him as a soft-spoken emotional and down-to-earth leader Moreover he is deeply religious He presents himself as a person who is firm and self-confident in dealing with the Muslim Brotherhood but tender in dealing with the people” What has also endeared el-Sisi to a majority of Egyptians is his image as a unifier of a society in which the Brotherhood had sought to sow Muslim-Christian and Muslim-Muslim divisions When he went on television on July 3 2013 to announce that Morsi had been removed from power he had Ahmed al-Tayeb the Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar and Pope Tawadros the spiritual head of Coptic Christians (who constitute about 10 per cent of Egypt’s population) flanking him This commitment to safeguarding national unity religious plurality and security of all citizens was conspicuously missing during Morsi’s rule Indeed many Egyptians I spoke to said that one of the reasons they disliked the Brotherhood was the suspicion that the latter was “more loyal to the Ummah (global Muslim ‘nation’) than to Egypt” If el-Sisi offers himself as a candidate in the forthcoming presidential election scheduled to take place in April he is certain to win by a huge majority However it’s equally certain that he will have a difficult task leading an impatient nation facing severe economic problems He also cannot afford to suppress people’s especially the Egyptian youth’s aspirations for freedom dignity and democratic rights If he succeeds it’ll be a miracle If he fails Tahrir Square could come

ministry has laid the foundation for a defence-industrial base In ending the public sector’s monopoly over aircraft production the first meeting of the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) under the new Union government turned out to be highly significant On Saturday the DAC chaired by Defence Minister Arun Jaitley cleared procurement proposals worth Rs 21000 crore in one stroke which included critical necessities such as the replacement of the air force’s five-decade-old Avro transport aircraft fleet auxiliary support ships and offshore patrol vessels for the navy advanced light helicopters for the navy and the coast guard as well as fast and offshore patrol vessels for the coast guard While these decisions signal the government’s intention to accelerate the process of defence procurement the two biggest takeaways are the programmes for military transport aircraft and naval fleet support vessels These invite Indian private-sector firms to defence production and in the longer term should help develop a domestic military-industrial complex The Avro replacement project will see 16 aircraft procured from a foreign vendor who in turn will choose an Indian partner for the manufacture of the remaining 40 of the 56 planes needed Since this is a non-lethal platform the foreign manufacturer and its Indian partner can sell the aircraft for commercial use too expanding their market to the civil aviation sector Although this programme had been approved by the erstwhile UPA government it was frozen by then Defence Minister AK Antony following his colleague Praful Patel’s objections to the exclusion of public-sector companies like HAL from the bidding process With legal opinion upholding that bidding process this move will now be an important step towards capacity-building of the Indian private sector in defence manufacture and in the aerospace industry The decision on auxiliary ships is tied up with the navy operating three carrier battle-groups outside the Indian Ocean Region signalling that the transformation of the Indian navy into a genuine blue-water force is on the MoD agenda again Auxiliary ships feed carrier battle-groups The invitation of the Indian private sector to this programme could see manufacturing move beyond Cochin at present the only Indian yard capable of building large vessels like the under-construction INS Vikrant carrier The UPA’s culture of instinctive banning and blacklisting of foreign suppliers at the hint of a scandal had led to a complete stalling of India’s military modernisation After raising the FDI cap in defence from 26 to 49 per cent in the budget the NDA government has a chance now to fulfil its promise of providing the armed forces with the most advanced

Ltd More Related NewsWritten by Neelkanth Mishra | Updated: August 22 2016 2:48 am It seems rising agricultural productivity is now creating surpluses across most categories Top News India’s per capita calorie demand has been falling for at least the last 30 years Most people do a double-take when they hear that One can’t debate the fact much: National Sample Surveys every five to seven years have documented this What we can debate are the reasons behind this: In their 2009 paper Angus Deaton and Jean Dreze pretty thoroughly narrowed them down to reduced need for calories as lives get more automated (like less walking with heavy loads or more tractors for ploughing) and less incidence of acute diseases (like dysentery a common form of calorie loss) as drinking water quality and immunisation improved Likely for similar reasons this drop in per capita calorie demand has been observed in China as well Further and more intuitively as incomes have risen the type of calories consumed has been changing as well: More eggs and chicken more milk less cereals As a result per capita cereal demand has been falling by 1 per cent per year on average for three decades at least Now that population growth has also slowed to about 1 per cent per year this means our total demand for cereals is not growing anymore Unlike in China where diets transitioning to red meat (to get one calorie one feeds the animal four) have kept pressure on calorie production Indians are shifting to chicken which is far less inefficient (and consumes corn which is not a staple here) Cereal production though continues to rise mainly due to rising yields This started showing up in rising food-stocks from 2008 onwards till we ran out of storage space Then exports started helped by high global prices In the last two years consecutive monsoon failures and falling global prices have brought down stocks as well as exports but if monsoons are good (helping groundwater levels and the rabi crop too) we could see an additional 25 million tonnes of cereals this year Weak global markets make exports unviable particularly for wheat What is the farmer going to do Cereals are not just any crop: They are the mainstay of Indian agriculture accounting for more than half the gross cropped area And while 60-90 per cent of this area is irrigated only 15-30 per cent of the area used for pulses and oilseeds is The latter crops thus get badly affected by weak monsoons Despite rapidly growing demand for protein and fats domestic output last year was about the same as in 2004 This meant 12 billion dollars of imports last year nearly three times the value imported when monsoons were okay As India seems to be the only large consumer of pulses there is not (yet) much of a global market in them — if the Indian crop fails prices go up For oils a well-supplied global market kept prices low: So low that the government had to raise import duties last year to prevent local prices from falling This year then a sharp jump in output of pulses and oilseeds as seems likely should bring down imports as well as dal prices Elsewhere remarkable changes are afoot on the perishable side of the food basket: Milk fruits and vegetables Of the 160 million tonnes of milk produced in India less than 40 per cent comes to the market: The rest is consumed within the household or the village This is mostly due to a lack of infrastructure: Roads (without good roads one cannot transport milk) information (not just on best practices but also on pricing) and electricity (without electricity in the village one would struggle to keep high-yielding varieties of cattle: one needs milking machines as well as chillers) We saw six consecutive years of double-digit increases in milk prices It took time for supply to respond: Cattle take three years to start lactating Improving rural infrastructure and better prices have resulted in much slower price growth despite the cooperatives supporting farmers by buying more than they needed With global milk prices down the export opportunity is also constrained Similarly in vegetables which are perishable the supply response to prices has been so strong that even in onions where the state that drives more than a third of output Maharashtra was reeling under two consecutive years of drought output grew so much that farmers had to sell at near-zero prices In potatoes when production hit 48 million tonnes last year more than 10 per cent of the harvest had to be stored as surplus Researchers say the use of technology in fruit and vegetables has driven yields up and duration of crop cycles down so farmers can produce more crops per year Improving infrastructure (phones roads) is also helping with transportation and price awareness Putting this together it seems that rising agricultural productivity is now creating surpluses across most categories The tell-tale signs were that despite two consecutive years of low production prices did not go up — this was mistakenly attributed to lower Minimum Support Prices and to a clampdown on black-marketing These may have helped but the root causes go much deeper This year as output growth picks up again prices could come under pressure — in many ways the poor monsoons had put a lid on this problem This throws up three important challenges for policymakers First agricultural surpluses from India are harder to export without a substantial improvement in food processing Second in most categories Indian farming cannot compete in global markets despite the abundance of natural resources (fertile soil adequate water and sunlight cheap labour) It is not just due to subsidies in other countries: Our productivity needs to improve as well The Indian farmer is also affected by currency movements Farmers in Brazil Ukraine and Russia have benefited strongly from the fall in their respective currencies And lastly these trends mean that agriculture will shed workers We no longer need 49 per cent of our workforce producing food for the rest of us In the US just 2 per cent of the population is in agriculture with substantial agricultural exports As one researcher we met

little bit older and I don’t know how many times these chances will come around again” The MLS standings show the impact McCarty can have on a team New York traded McCarty on Jan 16 two days after his
