        "title": "India to build tunnels across four high passes in Ladakh",
        "body": "NEW DELHI - In a bid to protect glaciers and enhance connectivity during snow and otherwise for the military and civilians, the Ladakh administration is contemplating building tunnels across at least four high passes in the cold desert region.\n\nAccording to Ajeet Kumar Sahu, commissioner/secretary PWD Ladakh UT, these tunnels will improve internal connectivity in the region that remains snowbound during winters.\n\nSahu said consultants have been hired to prepare DPRs of tunnels across Khardung La (17,582 ft), Fotu La (13,478 ft), Namika La (12,139 ft) and Key-La (18600 ft). He was reviewing the status of the survey and feasibility study conducted by M/S RITES who have been assigned to prepare DPRs of these tunnels.\n\nIt is pertinent to mention here that an all-weather tunnel enhances connectivity between valleys for facilitating the movement of military, civilians, and tourists in the region.\n\nConstruction of these tunnels will lead to faster, safer and smoother movement of internal traffic resulting in the all-around economic development of Ladakh.\n\nThe proposed 5.5 km-long Khardung-La tunnel is expected to shorten the travel time by an hour from Leh to Nubra valley that is the gateway to the militarily strategic Siachen Glacier. This will also help increase the safety of travellers due to bypassing of landslide and avalanche-prone areas.\n\nBesides, the tunnel would also protect the Khardung glacier, which is a major source of water for Leh town from receding due to the increase in heat emitted by automotive vehicular movement.\n\nThe consultant agency for the project shared that the proposed bypass tunnels at the Fotu La and Namika La passes will reduce the travel distance from Kargil to Leh by around an hour besides providing safety in traffic movement due to the accumulation of snow and icing on road during winters. The expected increase of traffic on this road in winter after the opening of the Zojila tunnel also necessitates construction of these tunnels as it serves as a strategic route for logistic supply to Ladakh.\n\nThese tunnels are expected to boost local business activities, employment opportunities, and tourism in the region.\n\nM/s RITES informed that preliminary survey and testing on all locations has been done and certain options have been worked out on the tunnel alignments. Those are being examined technically as well as through a cost-benefit analysis. Some pending testing would be done in the next working season to clearly assess the geological formation of these passes.\n\nSahu asked to send the initial report before 31 December this year so that required approvals are obtained in advance.\n\nThe meeting was attended by the Director ULB, Dr. Zahida Bano; Chief Engineer Project Vijayak, BRO, Brigadier Vinay Bahl; Chief Engineer, PWD (R&B) /PMGSY, Tashi Chombel, and officials of the consultant agency RITES.",

        "body": "JAKARTA - With no immediate end in sight to the Myanmar crisis that has tested ASEAN unity, the onus is on incoming chair Indonesia to pick a special envoy that can rise to the challenge of mediating a solution within their limited tenure of one year - and perhaps even beyond.\n\nPressure is mounting for Indonesia to lead the regional bloc toward resolving the political, humanitarian and economic crises stemming from the junta-led coup of Feb. 1, 2021, when the repressive military regime usurped power from Myanmar's democratically elected civilian government.\n\nThe two successive ASEAN chairs following the coup yielded poor results, despite an ultimatum from the bloc's nine other member states to restore peace and attain national reconciliation through the Five-Point Consensus, which was negotiated with junta leader Min Aung Hlaing in Jakarta in April last year.\n\nAmong the agreed points of the consensus is for ASEAN's sitting chair to appoint a special envoy to Myanmar for overseeing the peace process.Observers have been critical that, as the position was restricted to the one-year tenure of the group's rotating chairmanship, it would only impede any meaningful progress.\n\nBruneian foreign minister Erywan Yusof was appointed the first ASEAN Myanmar special envoy to visit the country post-coup. He was succeeded this year by Cambodian foreign minister Prak Sokhonn, who made two visits and reported immense difficulties in getting all parties involved to speak with each other at any level.\n\nPrak Sokhonn is to visit Myanmar a final time before his tenure as Myanmar special envoy ends this year, to assist in its \"return to normalcy and the democratic path\".\n\nMeanwhile, the Indonesian Foreign Ministry has entered into discussions about selecting the special envoy for 2023, even taking into account criticisms from NGOs running low on patience with ASEAN's performance, one source close to the matter told The Jakarta Post.\n\nThe source said the strategies used by past envoys would be analyzed thoroughly to determine any progress in implementing the five-point framework, before recommending any candidates to President Joko \"Jokowi\" Widodo.\n\nOn Nov. 19, a week after Cambodia wrapped up the 40th and 41st ASEAN Summits, Sokhonn reflected on his work as Myanmar special envoy over the past year and submitted a list of policy suggestions for ASEAN.\n\nAmong these was the suggestion that the bloc hold all parties, including \"ethnic armed organizations\", accountable for any violence. Additionally, ASEAN should aim to facilitate fairer compromise, he said, suggesting that \"excessive\" demands had been laid at the junta's feet.\n\nThe statement marked the first time Cambodia had openly defended the junta leadership since handing over the ASEAN chairmanship to Indonesia.\n\nMeanwhile, official source said the Myanmar military would continue to face heavy scrutiny under Indonesia's chairmanship, suggesting that the threat of armed violence posed by ethnic minority rebels were far outweighed by the junta's firepower.\n\n'Tall order'\n\nAmid the growing pressure from its neighbors, the junta's leaders in capital Naypyidaw have become emboldened by recent support from Russia, another pariah state that has polarized international opinion for its invasion of Ukraine this February.\n\nThe Myanmar junta and Moscow signed in mid-November a nuclear cooperation deal to establish a nuclear technology hub in Yangon. They also agreed to open direct flights to Yangon to strengthen connectivity.\n\nMeanwhile, analysts remained skeptical about Indonesia's ASEAN chairmanship making a difference, as long as it insisted on appointing a new Myanmar special envoy each year.\n\n\"It takes time to become well-informed about the situation on the ground, to earn the trust of all conflicting parties, to have the patience to visit and speak to different groups,\" said Dewi Fortuna Anwar, a senior international relations researcher at the National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN). \"A one year term is a nonstarter.\"\n\nFitriani, an international relations expert from the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Jakarta, said the envoy should ideally be a representative for the whole of ASEAN rather than its rotating chair.\n\nAnd even if Indonesia's eventual appointee defied all odds and facilitated effective dialogue between the conflicting sides, she said, there was still no guarantee that the 2024 special envoy would be able to build on their predecessor's achievements.\n\nContinuing, she said Indonesia's choice for Myanmar special envoy should possess a well of patience and be able to work with all sides while maintaining impartiality.",

        "body": "MANILA - Law enforcement agencies will have to take a step back under the Marcos administration's new anti-illegal drugs campaign that focuses on demand reduction and drug user rehabilitation, instead of the killing of drug users, Interior Secretary Benhur Abalos said on Friday.\n\nPresident Marcos is expected to lead on Saturday the Metro Manila launch of the \"Buhay Ingatan, Droga'y Ayawan\" (Bida, or Take Care of Life, Reject Drugs) program at Quezon City Memorial Circle in Quezon City, while regional launches will be held in Cebu City, Cagayan de Oro City and Davao City.\n\nAccording to the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), Bida is a nationwide anti-illegal drugs advocacy program involving local governments, national government agencies and other key sectors of the society that will focus more on drug demand reduction and rehabilitation in the communities.\n\nAccording to Abalos, the illegal drugs problem is a deep-seated issue that has continued to destroy relationships, families and the future of the youth, and it is high time for all sectors of the society to make a stand and do their part through the Bida program.\n\n\"We cannot put the campaign against illegal drugs fully [in] the hands of the Philippine National Police and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) because all of us are affected here. We all need to take part in putting a stop to this plague that is destroying our young people,\" he said in a statement on Friday.\n\nSince Mr. Marcos assumed office in June, the PNP's aggressive campaign against illegal drugs resulted in the confiscation of some P9.7 billion worth of various illegal drugs and the arrest of 22,646 drug suspects in 18,505 anti-illegal drug operations nationwide.\n\nMeanwhile, a total of 26,244 or 62.42 percent of the total 42,046 barangays in the country, have been tagged as \"drug-cleared\" under the Barangay Drug Clearing Program, the government's \"whole-of-nation\" approach in addressing the problem of illegal drugs in the country.\n\nThis was 3.48 percent higher than the 25,361 drug-cleared barangays last reported by the previous administration of former President Rodrigo Duterte in June.\n\nWhile lower in numbers compared with the first five months of the Duterte administration, the ongoing drug war has resulted in 46 deaths -- 32 of the slain alleged drug offenders died during police operations, while 14 were killed by agents of the PDEA -- in operations conducted from July to November.\n\nLawful campaign this time\n\nAccording to Abalos, the antidrugs campaign under the Marcos administration pioneers a different approach that will work \"within the framework of the law and with respect for human rights and with focus on rehabilitation and socioeconomic development.\"\n\nAccording to Abalos, the program will tap the best practices of local governments, government agencies and other partners in order to strengthen institutions for the implementation of drug-reduction activities, encourage multisectoral participation, secure commitments from national government agencies and partner organizations, and raise awareness through information, education and communication materials.\n\nLocal chief executives from the National Capital Region are also expected to read a unity statement to express their commitment to carry out the objectives of the Bida program in their respective jurisdictions, while representatives from different sectors of the society will also give a statement of support for the program.\n\nOn Thursday, the DILG chief directed local governments to formulate their local antidrug plan of action, down to the barangay level, that responds to the needs of their localities.\n\n\"Our anti-illegal drugs campaign takes a whole-of-government approach, which would only be efficient if we are able to execute plans ... down to the grassroots. It is imperative that our [local governments] work with us and draft their respective [plans],\" Abalos said.\n\nUnder DILG Memorandum Circular No. 2022-141, dated Nov. 9, Abalos encouraged local chief executives to formulate their antidrug plans within their first 200 days in office, specifying their anti-illegal drug programs and activities based on their localities' drug situation.",

        "body": "SEOUL - North Korean leader Kim Jong-un pledged to make the country's military strength \"more absolute and irreversible\" and push for nuclear buildup at an \"exceptionally rapid speed\" at a pseudo-event celebrating the successful launch of the new Hwasong-17 intercontinental ballistic missile where he brought his second daughter Kim Ju-ae again.\n\n\"It is the truth taught by history that only when we become the strongest, not the weak, in the present world where the strength in showdown just decides victory, can we defend the present and future of the country and nation,\" Kim was quoted as saying in an English-language report released by Korean Central News Agency on Sunday.\n\n\"We should consolidate our greatest strength seized firmly with two hands as more absolute and irreversible one, never resting on our laurels, and continue to put spurs to the limitless bolstering of the defense capabilities.\"\n\nKim made the remarks while taking a group photograph with \"combatants of the Red Flag Company,\" officials, scientists and technicians of a defense science research institution and workers of a munitions factory who \"made a great contribution\" to the Hwasong-17 ICBM launch on Nov. 18, KCNA reported without providing further details including the date and venue.\n\nJu-ae -- who has been confirmed by the South Korean spy agency as Kim's second daughter and was born in 2013 -- also made her second appearance at the staged photo-op following her first public appearance at the Hwasong-17 test launch. North Korean state media labeled her as Kim's \"beloved daughter.\"\n\nKim, in front of his daughter, expressed his confidence that North Korea's self-defense capability would be put in the \"position of the world's strongest.\" Painting a bright picture for the future of the country, Kim also showed his belief that scientists, technicians and workers \"can expand and bolster up the nuclear war deterrent of the country at an exceptionally rapid speed.\"\n\nNorth Korean scientists, technicians, workers and officials also pledged to \"perfectly materialize the strategic plan of the Party Central Committee\" by developing advanced weapons requested by the party successfully and successively in a letter sent to Kim on Nov. 21, KCNA reported on Sunday.\n\nHong Min, director of the North Korean Research Division at the government-funded Korea Institute for National Unification, said North Korea calibrated the timing of the Hwasong-17 ICBM launch in light of the fifth anniversary of the Hwasong-15 ICBM launch on Nov. 29 in 2017. The North Korean leader declared the completion of the \"state nuclear force\" on that day.\n\nYang Moo-jin, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul, said North Korea also \"intended to strengthen the solidarity of its regime by stepping up propaganda two days before the anniversary of declaring the completion of the state nuclear force.\"\n\nAgainst that backdrop, Yang saw slim chances of North Korea conducting a high-profile nuclear test or an ICBM launch on the occasion of the fifth anniversary.\n\n\"It's highly likely that North Korea will solely promote achievements without a separate event on the fifth anniversary as the country assesses that it has already achieved its objectives, including demonstrating nuclear forces, through the successful launch of the Hwasong-17,\" Yang said. \"But we could expect the country to launch short and medium-range ballistic missiles aimed at sounding salute and maintaining tensions.\"\n\nThe North Korean leader on Saturday also issued an order to \"promote the military ranks of leading officials and scientists in the defense scientific research field who strikingly demonstrated to the whole world the powerful strength of the DPRK's strategic force,\" state media reported the following day.\n\nMore than 100 personnel were on the list of promotions. Among them, Jang Chang-ha, chief of the Academy of National Defense Science, and Kim Jong-sik, vice department director of the Munitions Industry of the Party Central Committee, have been promoted to generals.\n\nIn the order, Kim notably said his nuclear buildup's \"ultimate goal is to possess the world's most powerful strategic force, the absolute force unprecedented in the century.\"\n\nThe Standing Committee of the rubber-stamp Supreme People's Assembly on Saturday also for the first time issued a decree on \"awarding the title of DPRK Hero and Gold Star Medal and Order of National Flag 1st Class\" to the Hwasong-17's transporter erector launcher vehicle, KCNA reported on Sunday.\n\nIn the decree, the North Korean parliamentary reiterated its tit-for-tat strategy, saying the Hwasong-17 launch is a \"historic event that solemnly declared the toughest will of the Workers' Party of Korea and the DPRK government to react to the enemy's nuke and full-frontal confrontation in kind.\"",
