Pharma news - April 23, 2018 - 8:36am

By Stephanie van den Berg THE HAGUE (Reuters) - Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic asked U.N. judges on Monday to overturn his genocide conviction, accusing prosecutors of unfairly blackening his name and twisting his words at his trial. Karadzic was convicted two years ago for some of the worst war crimes committed as the former Yugoslavia broke apart in the 1990s, including the 1995 Srebrenica massacre in which around 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were killed.

U.N., EU, Russia back Iran nuclear deal as Trump meets Macron

Pharma news - April 23, 2018 - 7:49am

By Tom Miles and Maria Kiselyova GENEVA/MOSCOW (Reuters) - U.S. allies and rivals spoke out in support of the Iran nuclear deal on Monday, bolstering French President Emmanuel Macron's pitch to U.S. President Donald Trump that there was no "Plan B" for keeping a lid on Tehran's atomic ambitions. Macron is on something of a rescue mission for the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which Trump has vowed to scrap unless European allies strengthen it by mid-May. A nuclear non-proliferation conference in Geneva heard repeated calls for parties to the deal -- the United States, China, Russia, Britain, France and Germany -- to ensure its implementation and preservation. "The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action continues to be the best way to ensure the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear programme and to realise the promised tangible economic benefits for the Iranian people," U.N. High representative for Disarmament Affairs Izumi Nakamitsu said.

Russia's S-300 or S-400: F-35 Killer or Overhyped?

Pharma news - April 23, 2018 - 6:48am

The Pentagon is casting doubt on the effectiveness of Russian-made air defense systems. The Pentagon’s move appears to be aimed at deterring Turkey from purchasing the Russian-made S-400. Until the Pentagon’s April 19 press briefing, the Defense Department would routinely scaremonger how the S-400 would effectively turn an area into an anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) bubble.
