Jaishankar-Wang likely to meet in Indonesia, LAC row may figure

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi are likely to meet in Indonesia this week during which the Line of Actual Control (LAC) stand-off may be discussed. Sources told The Daily Guardian Review that Jaishankar and Wang may hold talks on the sidelines of the G-20 Foreign Ministers’ Meeting which is scheduled to be held in Bali on 7-8 July. The FMs’ meeting is being hosted by Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi.  

The interactions at the foreign ministers’ meet will set the stage for the G-20 Summit which will be hosted by Indonesian President Joko Widodo later this year. At the FM’s Meet, Jaishankar will outline India’s stand on food, energy security and global supply chains, sources said. Jaishankar may also engage with Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov. Definitely, the Ukraine situation will be one of the key agendas during the talks between the Indian and Russian foreign ministers. Jaishankar is set to reaffirm India’s stand favouring dialogue to resolve the problems between Russia and Ukraine. The Chinese and Russian foreign ministers had last met Jaishankar in India in March and April, respectively.

EAM Jaishankar is also likely to hold bilateral talks with his counterparts from various countries in the West including the US. He will also hold a separate meeting with the host Indonesian Foreign Minister.

All eyes will, however, be on Jaishankar’s meeting with Wang Yi, during which the LAC deadlock may figure. The diplomats on both sides are exploring the possibility of scheduling a meeting of Jaishankar and Wang on the sidelines of the G-20 FMs’ meet.    

Top diplomatic sources informed that if the meeting takes place, Jaishankar will deliver a stern message to his Chinese counterpart on the LAC problems. “Wang will be told that normal ties between India and China will be back on track only if the boundary row is resolved,” sources said. This will be a clear message for Chinese President Xi Jinping as well, who wanted bilateral relations to be normal between New Delhi and Beijing ‘without waiting for resolution’ of the LAC issue, sources add.

Wang had come with Xi’s proposal on 25 March, and Jaishankar had rejected it outright.  Wang reiterated this proposal during his recent meeting with India’s ambassador to China, Pradeep Rawat. Rawat had also rejected the proposal, emphasizing the criticality of maintenance of peace and tranquility in the border areas for realizing the full potential of India-China relations and its positive implications for the world, particularly Asia.

During his talks with Wang, Jaishankar is going to reaffirm India’s stand that China should first cooperate with India to resolve standoff over LAC and then the other normal processes in bilateral ties will be restored. The 15th round of negotiation between military commanders of India and China on 11 March failed to break the impasse on mutual withdrawal of troops from Hot Springs or Patrol Point 15 in eastern Ladakh. Next round of talks at the military commander level will be held and a date will be fixed once Jaishankar returns from Indonesia after meeting Wang, sources said.

The Current Financial Climate Around the World

Published

on


The economy is volatile, but many people are finding ways to profit from these conditions. I decided to write an article about how the global foreign exchange can support your investments in this challenging time. I have made a point of looking into different opportunities and following up with my research. In addition to helping you access an emerging market currency (not to mention other things such as commodities), the foreign exchange gives you exposure to many more investment opportunities than your typical stock/bond investments would. For example, imagine taking advantage of an interest rate hike in your home country and buying shares in some companies in a country like India or China. You need a strong, diversified investment portfolio that includes stocks and bonds in both developed and emerging countries. It means a higher risk, but a better return. Before you start making these changes, make sure you’ve got the necessary resources. It can be difficult to do this right now, so I recommend working with someone who can help manage your money.

Focus on fundamentals

An excellent way for anyone to profit from the current economic situation is by focusing on the underlying factors behind the movement. When trading currency, this usually involves analyzing and understanding the economy, which can often be easier to know when you’re doing it for the first time. Forex traders often forget to consider the fundamental economic factors, especially where a country is concerned. While many investors focus on the short-term dynamics of currencies, they often miss the bigger picture of the economy. This is particularly true for those looking to invest in emerging markets. The more you know about the fundamentals driving the currency value of your portfolio, the more likely you will be able to ride out the ups and downs of the stock market without too much trouble. While many people can take advantage of rising oil prices or even look forward to cheaper goods in the future, there are also those who believe the price of gas, electricity, and food will rise significantly. These investors are willing to invest in the future based on their expectations. As such, it’s important you consider the potential effects these fundamentals could have on your portfolio, especially if you’re looking to invest in emerging markets. Take some time to think about your personal finances, your investment goals, and where your portfolio might be heading over the next couple of years. Then, you’re ready to begin figuring out which currencies and investment opportunities might work well for your portfolio. 

Understand currency volatility

 Currency is one of the most volatile assets available to investors. What do I mean by this? Well, let me explain. A currency is just an object used in international trade and commerce. They are traded between different countries by their governments and national banks, and their value changes based on a variety of factors such as interest rates, foreign exchange rates, population growth, inflation rates, etc. When a currency appreciates or depreciates, this is due to factors such as a strong country or a weak one. However, because of the sheer number of countries with many currencies floating around, there is a lot of volatility in the market.

Use leverage in investments

 Forex trading can be very rewarding. Leverage is a term used to describe an investor’s ability to increase their investments in order to gain more profit. There are two types of leverage: margin and synthetic leverage. Margin refers to the use of borrowed funds to buy and sell securities. Synthetic leverages are simply the creation of artificial leverage by using certain strategies such as day trading or hedging. When doing FX trading, you’ll often find yourself in situations where you’re forced to use the dollar as an instrument. This is referred to as dollar-driven leverage, and it can be very difficult to manage. Just how much can an individual use? Traders often use a large amount of margin in order to take advantage of rising currency values. If you’re looking to use this type of leverage, it’s best to seek advice from a professional Forex trader. In some cases, you may need to borrow money in order to do your own trades. You can do this by having a broker handle all your transactions for you. 

Keep your eye on currency movements

 One of the more popular ways for people to profit from the current financial climate is through currency trading. Many people believe that they must wait until the market is absolutely bearish before they can start making money. The truth is that there are plenty of opportunities for traders right now. Unfortunately, some people believe that currency trading is only for serious investors. That’s not true at all.

In conclusion, there are lots of reasons why you should consider investing in Forex currency trading. If you’re looking for a quick way to get started with the world of currency trading, then I highly recommend trying out some demo accounts. As mentioned above, you may find yourself in situations where you’re forced to use the dollar as an instrument. But don’t worry; it’s easy to get through these types of scenarios and still find success in trading. Good luck!

Nupur sharma

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court combined and forwarded all FIRs filed to the Delhi Police against BJP spokeswoman Nupur Sharma, who has been suspended. The apex court also granted Sharma temporary protection while the Prophet’s comment controversy is being investigated.

The court also gave the suspended BJP leader permission to file a petition with the Delhi High Court to have FIRs filed in other states over her remarks dismissed. After allegedly uttering some offensive remarks about the Prophet Mohammad during a debate on a TV channel, Sharma has become embroiled in a significant scandal.

Protests quickly ensued, both inside and outside the nation, and several Muslim countries officially registered their objections with the relevant Indian embassy. The BJP then suspended Sharma and expressed distain for her comments. A statement was also made in this regard by the ministry of external affairs.

Large-scale upheavals were also caused in various regions of the nation. Also murdered by radical Muslim groups in Rajasthan and Maharashtra were two people who sent messages of support for Sharma on social media.

Sharma had received harsh criticism from the apex court for her remarks made on May 26 during a TV discussion debate, but it later granted her protection in the case.
