Growth of extremist and terrorist crimes stopped in none of Central Asian countries

Bishkek, Feb. 15, 2019. /Kabar/. The growth of extremist and terrorist crimes has not been stopped in any of the Central Asian countries. Such data was provided during the round table on “System for Assessing the Risks and Needs of Convicts in Places of Detention in the Light of the Adopted New Criminal Law of the Kyrgyz Republic” in Bishkek. According to the information, the number of people convicted for such crimes in the Kyrgyz Republic is 256 (as of March 25, 2018), in Kazakhstan – 661 (as of February 12, 2018), in Tajikistan – 675 (as of May 14, 2018). “Terrorists often deliberately commit ordinary crimes to hide in colonies and create “frozen cells” there. Both joint and separate detention has its disadvantages. With joint detention, a kind of diffuse recruitment takes place, while with separate detention, very cohesive terrorist or extremist cells can form,” Chairman of the Science Advisory Council of the CIS Anti-Terrorist Center Marianna Kochubey said. The study states that due to the favorable social and psychological conditions provided by members of extremist groups, conducting recruitment activities in prisons - atonement for sins and indulgence for crimes that will be committed in the future for the benefit of the organization, the possibility of escaping from lower castes and others, the number of adherents of radical groups is expanding.

Oil prices hit 2019 highs amid OPEC-led supply cuts

Oil prices rallied on Friday, with Brent crude futures hitting fresh 2019 highs amid US sanctions against Venezuela and Iran and supply cuts led by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), Trend reports citing Reuters. Brent pushed above $65 per barrel for the first time in 2019, before edging back to $64.91 a barrel by 0143 GMT. That was still 0.5 percent above the last close. The international benchmark for oil prices is at a near 3-month high and set for a 4.5 percent gain for the week. US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at $54.74 per barrel, up 33 cents, or 0.6 percent, from their last settlement. OPEC and some non-affiliated suppliers including Russia are withholding supply in order to tighten the market and prop up prices. The producer group known as OPEC+ has agreed to cut crude output by a joint 1.2 million barrels per day (bpd). Top exporter Saudi Arabia said it would cut even more in March than the deal called for. Russia has cut its oil production by 80,000-90,000 barrels per day from its level in October, Moscow’s reference level for its cuts, the country’s energy minister said. Bank of America Merrill Lynch said in a note that “Brent should average $70 per barrel in 2019, helped by voluntary (Saudi, Kuwait, UEA) and involuntary (Venezuela, Iran) declines in OPEC supply.” The US bank added that it expects “a 2.5 million barrels per day drop in OPEC supply from 4Q18 into 4Q19.” Standing against the supply cuts is soaring US crude production, which rose by more than 2 million bpd last year, to 11.9 million bpd, making America the world’s biggest oil producer. Most analysts expect US output to rise past 12 million bpd soon, and perhaps even hit 13 million bpd by the end of the year.

System for assessing risks and needs of convicts presented in Kyrgyzstan

Bishkek, Feb. 15, 2019. /Kabar/. In Kyrgyzstan, a system for assessing the risks and needs of convicts was presented, the topic was elaborated on during a round table in Bishkek. Regional director of the Penal Reform International (PRI) Office in Central Asia Azamat Shambilov told that the risk assessment of convicts is a system that is used in many prison systems of the world, and not only in prisons, but also in probation. “This is a tool that allows the most individual approach to the issue of execution of punishment in relation to a specific person. Thanks to this system, psychological, legal and other issues are identified that give a more objective, accurate picture of the convicted person. Based on this assessment, certain officials will make objective decisions,” Shambilov said. Deputy of the Jogorku Kenesh (Kyrgyz Parliament) Ainura Altybaeva noted that the law on probation was discussed in 2018 and began its work this year. “There is a big reform in the country. The introduction of probation is relevant and new to our country. We hope that our judges will be objective, because in the center of our reforms are, first of all, human rights,” the deputy said.

In 2018, after a decline in the first half of the year, the economic development of the country was formed in a positive way thanks to the efforts of the Cabinet of Ministers, Minister of Economy Oleg Pankratov told at a government meeting.

The world needs bridges, not ditches

(File photo of Doris and John Naisbitt) Shutting down versus opening-up Leadership for more than 200 years was the claim of the western world, led by the United States: militarily, economically, technologically, and morally. That leadership has been undermined by President Donald Trump's segregate and erratic politics and stagnation in social mobility. With «Brexit,» Great Britain, the third largest economy of the EU, is creating a lose-lose situation in a European Union that moves further and further away from speaking in one voice. And while exponential change and social economic shifts would give us enough reasons to move closer together, the gap among and within western countries is widening. At the same time, we have seen the rise and rejuvenation of the country which, mostly unaware in western mindsets, was a leading economy throughout millennia: China. This year China celebrated 40 years of reform and opening-up, four decades of economic wonder. It now faces the challenge of maintaining this path. A path China is not walking alone. Very different from President Trump's polarizing and dividing policymaking, President Xi Jinping has launched a global bridge-building measure known as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The ambitious goal is to narrow the economic gap between developed and emerging economies and to foster understanding and communication despite cultural and historical differences. Five years of BRI China's geo-economic vision for the 21st century will span at least 76 countries. Its total investments by 2027 will reach $1.3 trillion, according to estimates from Morgan Stanley. It will include more than 4.5 billion people, and with $50 billion, a share of almost 60 percent of the global GDP. In the first five years, China's total trade with BRI countries exceeded $5 trillion. It is now the largest trading partner of 25 countries. BRI economic zones have attracted 4,000 enterprises, generating $2 billion in tax revenues, and 244,000 local jobs for the countries involved. The attention now given to the initiative is increasing. New Silk Road Forums are held in many countries. China’s 2017 BRI Forum in Beijing was attended by 30 world leaders and representatives from 110 countries. The BRI has already become a global network. Countries affected will be helped by better infrastructure that will lead to better education, economic and socio-economic progress, and witness increased global participation. For Russia, the OECD outlook is grim, by 2045, so the estimate, its contribution to the global economy, will barely reach three percent. It is no surprise that many Eurasian governments express gratitude for infrastructural developments which will transform Eurasian trade, improve connectivity, and open new markets. China's 16+1 initiative connects China with 16 Central and Eastern European countries, of which 11 are EU members. Their high interest to do business with China also reveals a weakness or a lack of interest from the EU to create and cooperate in projects benefitting Eastern European countries and their people. During the September 2018 Forum on China-Africa Cooperation in Beijing, many African leaders were at the same hotel as us. All of them praised the initiative, hoping it would extend to their countries. China's non-interference in local politics is as effective as its politics of enabling countries to help themselves rather than become recipients of welfare programs. Trust building processes President Xi called the BRI «a road for peace.» On a higher level, it is referred to as «a road for peace» by the global community. To establish trust, building processes will have to dispel doubts about China's intentions, concerns with corruption, mismanagement, and hidden military interests. In the coming years, the BRI will inevitably face backlash – projects that are not delivered on time, concerns about Chinese labor with local projects, and, despite China's efforts for a Green Silk Road, environmental costs. The BRI has been joined by 76 countries, but that leaves roughly 120 countries that have not joined. On top of them the United States. President Trump's term as president cannot be equated with the United States as such. The approach of the current government might well change with a change in the presidency. Nevertheless, it seems the US is overstating the military threat and underestimating the geo-economic impact of B&R. America interests are at stake. Shortcomings and failure will be blamed on China. To anticipate the impact of China's recurrence as a global leader, we have to take the different historical and cultural context of countries into account. Even the best intentions can fail with a lack of understanding or neglect of local cultures and social structures. Success, and more so, the sustainability of the BRI will depend on countries identifying themselves with the Initiative and sharing a common goal with China. The BRI is not just an economic initiative from China, but encouragement for expansion with a common approach on global issues that the world will face in the years ahead. Another year is about to begin. The world needs bridges, and leaders who know how to build them. Source: People's Daily app

She notes that by the time the programme finished their book contest among Baitik children aged seven to ten years, they had collected 20 of their best works written in different genres.

Citizens of Kyrgyzstan traveling abroad offered voluntary life insurance – State Migration Service

Bishkek, Feb. 13, 2019. /Kabar/. The State Migration Service is working on the issue of voluntary life insurance for citizens of the Kyrgyz Republic traveling abroad, the press service of the institution reported. In connection with the dissemination of information among the public regarding compulsory insurance of citizens of the Kyrgyz Republic going abroad, the State Migration Service under the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic reported the following. The State Migration Service draws the attention of the public to the fact that compulsory insurance prevents citizens of the Kyrgyz Republic from free movement outside the country, which is contrary to the Constitution of the Kyrgyz Republic. In addition, in accordance with the Civil Code of the Kyrgyz Republic, the law cannot impose a duty on a citizen to insure his life or health. In this regard, as well as taking into account the numerous appeals of representatives of diasporas of Kyrgyzstan and public representatives related to the problems of delivering cargo 200 to the territory of Kyrgyzstan and the issue of its financing, the State Migration Service is considering the issue of voluntary life insurance of citizens of the Kyrgyz Republic going abroad. To this end, consultations were held with the State Insurance Company on the possibility of implementing a voluntary insurance policy, the cost of which has not yet been determined. After the preliminary calculations, the State Migration Service will submit a proposal for consideration to the government of the Kyrgyz Republic. “At the same time, it is worth noting that the adopted measure is not aimed at replenishing the country's budget, but at providing the family members of the deceased with a residual level of finances for delivering the body to homeland and for burial in the event of his/her death,” the statement reads.

The memorandum was signed by Deputy Agriculture Minister of Kazakhstan Gulmira Isayeva, Deputy Agriculture Minister of Iran Ali Akbar Mehrfard and Deputy Agriculture Minister of Russia Sergey Levin. Minister of Trade of the Eurasian Economic Commission Veronika Nikishina was also present at the event. Isayeva noted that the memorandum is an integral part of the free trade zone agreement signed last year between the EEU member states and Iran. «The supply of Kazakh wheat can reach from 500,000 to one million tons during a year. Last year was very successful for Kazakhstan, the country exported 11.7 million tons of grain. The task is to further expand the sales market. Therefore, the Iranian market is very interesting for us,» she said.

This market accounts for more than 70 percent of global flour consumption. «I think that the signing of the memorandum will lead to more dynamic development of relations and growth of trade turnover between our countries. We will continue to reinforce and strengthen logistics and industrial cooperation,» said Deputy Agriculture Minister of Iran Ali Akbar Mehrfard. According to the signed memorandum, Iran will facilitate the freedom of transit of Kazakh and Russian wheat through its territory, will support the import of wheat under swap contracts, including on issues of exempting from bans and other restrictions of Kazakh and Russian wheat temporarily imported into Iran for further processing and export.
