N. Korea Condemns New Leaflet Launches from S. Korea

VOA News
January 07, 2015

North Korea says it condemns the South Korean government for
permitting anti-Pyongyang leaflet launches, including one that
took place earlier this week.

On Monday, South Korean activists sent balloons carrying more
than 1 million leaflets over the border. North Korea's official
Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) accuses the activists of
sending the leaflets to halt proposed dialogue between the two

"On January 5, human scum ... of an organization of 'defectors
from the North' organized the scattering of over 1.3 million
leaflets slandering the dignity and social system of the DPRK
[Democratic People's Republic of Korea]," the KCNA report says.
"It is a last ditch effort to obstruct the improvement of
North-South relations and spoil an atmosphere of dialogue."

Last October, plans for high-level talks were stalled when a
leaflet launch was met by machine gun fire from North Korea. No
one was injured.

Pyongyang has called on the government in Seoul to stop the
launches, but South Korea says there is no legal basis to prevent
private organizations from disseminating their information.

On Wednesday, a Unification Ministry spokesman, Lim Byeong-cheol
reaffirmed the stance of the South Korean government.

"It is wrong for the North to demand that the South restrict our
freedom of expression as a precondition for talks,, he said.
"The North must come to talks without preconditions."

On Tuesday, a South Korean official urged North Korea to accept
Seoul's offer of talks, saying the leaflet issue can be discussed
in that forum.

US Embassy in Nicaragua Voices Concerns over Chinese-led Canal

Reuters via voanews.com
January 07, 2015

MANAGUA - The U.S. Embassy in Nicaragua said on Tuesday it was
concerned by a lack of information surrounding the planned
$50-billion, Chinese-led canal that would bisect the poor Central
American nation.

Work began in late December on the 172-mile (278-km) waterway,
which its Hong Kong-based developer HK Nicaragua Canal
Development Investment Co Ltd (HKND Group) has said will be
operational by 2020. So far, the project has been met with
widespread skepticism.

HKND Group is controlled by a little-known Chinese mogul, Wang
Jing, who said the Chinese government is not behind the project.
But his reluctance to reveal his financiers has led many to
speculate he enjoys Beijing's tacit backing.

China Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei told a regular press
briefing on Wednesday that the government requires Chinese firms
to abide by local laws when operating abroad, but dismissed any
connection to the canal project.

"This project is the action of the relevant company's own
initiative. The Chinese government has not been involved," Hong

China's involvement would be a direct challenge to the Panama
Canal, which was controlled by the United States until 1999. The
canal would also give China a major foothold in Central America,
a region long dominated by the United States. The U.S. Embassy in
Nicaragua declined comment when work began last month.

But in a statement released on Tuesday, the U.S. mission in
Managua said all relevant documents pertaining to the project
should be made public, and that the voices of all stakeholders
should be heard in a peaceful manner.

"The embassy is worried by the lack of information and
transparency that has existed, and continues to exist, over many
of the important aspects of this project," it said. It urged
disclosure of environment studies, tenders and other details of
the project.

Just days after the ground-breaking, at least 21 people were
injured in clashes between police and protesters opposed to the
construction of the canal.

Russian-Language TV Program Expands To Latvia

Radio Free Europe/Radio Libery press release
January 05, 2015

"Nastoyashchee Vremya," a new Russian-language television
program, will launch this evening in Latvia, expanding its reach
to audiences in five countries neighboring Russia.

"The aim of the program is to provide audiences in countries
neighboring Russia with an alternative point of view on current
events in their countries, in their region, and in the world,"
said Nenad Pejic, RFE/RL editor in chief and co-CEO. "It is
committed to providing professional, intelligent journalism, and
is guided by the belief in the power of good journalism to
promote peace and democracy." .

The 30-minute program, a dynamic mix of live news coverage,
interviews, original features, and political satire, will air
nightly at 11:00 p.m. on Latvia's private Russian-language
channel, TV5. In a press release announcing the program, Baiba
Zuzena, the head of TV5's parent company MTG TV Latvia,
explained, "The broadcast of 'Nastoyashchee Vremya' on TV5 is not
an attempt to convince someone of something, but an opportunity
we present to our viewers. Everyone can decide for himself or
herself what information to believe, but it's important that
Latvians hear every side and be aware of every point of view."

"Nastoyashchee Vremya," or "Current Time" as it is known in
English, is a joint production of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty
and the Voice of America. It began airing in October 2014 and is
carried by TV channels and internet portals in Georgia,
Lithuania, Moldova, and Ukraine, in addition to Latvia.

On January 1, Latvia assumed the presidency of the Council of the
European Union for the first six months of 2015, during which it
has pledged to actively promote media freedom, the EU's Eastern
Partnership program, and democratic institutions.

#JeSuisCharlie: Charlie Hebdo Attack Sparks Online Solidarity

January 07, 2015

Numerous journalists and others have expressed solidarity with
the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in the wake of a
deadly attack on its offices, with some calling for other media
to republish some of its most famous -- and offensive -- cartoons
in sympathy with the victims.

The hashtag #jesuischarlie started trending on Twitter in the
hours following the January 7 assault that killed at least 12
people, including four of Charlie Hebdo's main cartoonists.

The weekly, known for poking fun at religious and political
leaders, is most famous outside France for its issues and
cartoons that have lampooned the Prophet Muhammad.

French newspaper Le Figaro used the hashtag to report on a
solidarity rally planned for later January 7 in Paris.
