MANILA Women's Nike Air Force 1 High Red UK Sale , Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- Philippine President Aquino assured the public Tuesday that there would be sufficient supply of rice despite the recent devastation from typhoon Koppu (Local name: Lando) and the anticipated more severe onslaught of the El Nino.

The president, during the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines (FOCAP) Forum held at the Solaire Resort and Casino, said government had initially approved the 500,000 metric tons of rice importation and it is now considering increasing the amount after several agricultural lands in Northern and Central Luzon had been flooded and damaged following Koppu.

Aquino said the initially approved importation was to cushion the impact of the El Nino on the rice supply.

He said the flooding caused by Koppu made the problem more severe.

The Philippine Atmospheric Men's Nike Air Force 1 Low Brown 488298-704 UK Sale , Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) had warned the severe El Nino would lead to a drought that would be felt by at least 79 provinces that could last up to the early part of 2016.

PAGASA said drought is defined as three consecutive months of way below normal rainfall condition or 60 percent reduction from average rainfall.

MANILA, Nov. 17 (Xinhua) -- Asia-Pacific leaders are gathering in Manila this week for an annual Asia-Pacific Economic and Cooperation (APEC) leaders' meeting, which should focus on economic cooperation and development of an atmosphere conducive to regional cooperation and growth.

Hopes have been running high for the meeting to yield concrete results to push forward cooperation and enhance inter-connectivity among countries in the Asia-Pacific region amid gloomy world economic forecast.

However, the existing atmosphere for the meeting is not as tranquil as expected Men's Nike Air Force 1 Low Grey 488298-029 UK Sale , and there is a fear that this economic platform could be overloaded by complicated political motivations from certain countries.

A U.S. State Department spokesperson reportedly said last Tuesday that the United States and its allies would discuss regional disputes over sovereignty in the South China Sea on the sidelines of the APEC leaders' meeting.

APEC members should be wary of the moves that might deviate from the focus of the APEC leaders' meeting and jeopardize the success of the forum.

The global economy is far from being trouble-free. In the Asia-Pacific region, more than 700 million people are still living below the 1.25 U.S. dollars-per-day poverty line.

Earlier in October, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) downgraded the forecast of global economic growth to 3.1 percent this year from the previous 3.3 percent, underlining the grave challenges faced by the world.

In a speech entitled "Innovative Growth That Benefits All" at the Group of 20 (G20) summit held in the Turkish city of Antalya on Sunday Nike Air Force 1 Low 07 LV8 Grey 718152-004 UK Sale , Chinese President Xi Jinping pointed out that the G20, a main forum for global economic and financial cooperation, should work to maintain a stable economic growth in the short term, while seeking to inject new impetus into the world economy in the long term.

As the most important trade and economic forum of the region involving the highest level of leaders from some of the world's heavy-weight economies Men's Nike Air Force 1 Low Grey 488298-044 UK Sale , APEC is an invaluable platform for economies of the region to make concerted efforts to tackle economic foes and push for more economic integration.

Fortunately, the Philippine government has a clear mind on this and has announced that no political or security issues will be, or should be, on the agenda of this year' APEC leaders' meeting.

As its name implies Nike Air Force 1 Mid 07 White UK Sale , APEC has a tradition of avoiding talking about political and security issues, as agreed by its members.

Since its establishment, APEC has been consistent in promoting trade facilitation, and economic and technological cooperation. It is also instrumental in promoting regional economic integration Men's Nike Air Force 1 Low White 456814-102 UK Sale , inter-connectivity and economic cooperation among members.

At last year's APEC leaders' in Beijing, a road map was drawn to establish a Free Trade Area of Asia-Pacific (FTAAP) and a blueprint was adopted to promote regional inter-connectivity. To carry out the tasks and make the goals a reality, more efforts and much coordination are needed.

For a better economic future of the region and the world, all APEC members should show sincerity and a cooperative stance to guarantee a favorable atmosphere for the annual meeting.

WASHINGTON Nike Air Force 1 Low The Ten OFF WHITE All White AO4606-100 , July 24 (Xinhua) -- Turkey has agreed to allow U.S. manned and unmanned warplanes to launch air raids on the Islamic State (IS) extremist group from airbases on Turkish soil, according to U.S. media reports on Friday.

The agreement, which would allow U.S. warplanes to engage in anti-IS campaign from the Turkish bases of Incirlik and Diyarbakir, was sealed late Wednesday after a phone call between U.S. President Barack Obama and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit Womens UK Sale , The New York Times quoted anonymous U.S. officials as saying.

The new pact would facilitate the U.S. bombing of IS targets, as the two airbases are located much closer to the Syrian border than Iraq, Kuwait and Jordan, where U.S. air raids on the IS were currently launched.

A statement from the White House on Wednesday after the phone call just said that the two leaders discussed deepening cooperation in the fight against the IS Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit Mens UK Sale , as well as efforts to " bring security and stability to Iraq and a political settlement to the conflict in Syria." It didn't mention any agreement on the use of airbases in Turkey.

The New York Times report also said that the United States would not openly talk about the pact until the Turkish government "acknowledged it publicly."

Describing the pact as a "game changer," U.S. officials reportedly said that recent IS attacks on Turkish targets had played a vital role in Turkey's decision to play a more direct and.
