It is widely believed that some elements http://janmpyu.jigsy.com/ of al-Qaida have now taken refuge in southern Libya, working with existing networks of drug and weapons smugglers. "The fact remains that as organized crime transcends international borders there is no doubt in my mind that this type of networking exists with elements of al-Qaida," Libyan Foreign Minister Mohammed Ahmed Abdelaziz told The Associated Press on the margins of the conference. "This type of networking has serious implications on the security of the borders." Formed in 2009, Boko Haram seeks to impose Islamic law in northern Nigeria, and is blamed for thousands of deaths, including the bombing of the U.N. building in Abuja, the capital, in 2011.

French President Francois Hollande (L) and President Shimon Peres plant a tree during a welcoming ceremony held at the presidents residence in Jerusalem, Israel, 17 November 2013 (photo credit: Uri Lenz/GPO/Flash90) We stand, together, against this attempt, which hangs as a dark shadow over the skies of the Middle East; in fact, over the skies of the entire world. It is a stain on the Iranian people, many of whom yearn for freedom, he added. Later Sunday, Hollande was set to meet with Netanyahu to discuss a new round of nuclear talks with Iran slated for Wednesday in Geneva. He is also expected to deliver a speech in the Knesset later this week. visit Theyre coming as friends and will be received as friends, Netanyahu said of the French delegation at the weekly cabinet meeting just two hours before Hollandes plane touched down in Tel Aviv. Hundreds of police were deployed in the capital in honor of the French presidents arrival, and Route 1, the highway leading from Ben-Gurion Airport to Jerusalem, was closed for several hours.

Second point: http://www.livejournal.com/update.bml suspend enrichment to 20 percent. Thirdly: to reduce the existing stock. "And finally, to halt construction of the Arak (heavy water) plant.

His remarks were made on the eve of a new round of talks in Geneva between world powers and Iran seeking to reach an agreement to scale back Tehran's contested nuclear programme. A previous round of talks ended on November 10 without agreement, with France taking a tougher stance than its Western partners in a move which won glowing praise in Israel. Standing next to Hollande, Netanyahu said he was "gravely concerned" that attempts to sign a deal would succeed. "I'm concerned, gravely concerned, that this deal will go through and in one stroke of the pen, it will reduce the sanctions on Iran -- sanctions that took years to put in place -- and in return for this, Iran gives practically nothing," Netanyahu said. "It's clear that this agreement is good only for Iran and that it's really bad for the rest of the world," he said. "Iran's dream deal is the world's nightmare."
