Pence: U.S. to honor refugee deal with Australia

The United States will honor an Obama-era agreement with Australia to help resettle Syrian refugees, despite the Trump administration not favoring the arrangement, Vice President Mike Pence announced Saturday."President Trump has made it clear that we'll honor the agreement — that doesn't mean we admire the agreement," Pence said during a joint news conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in Sydney.Up to 1,250 refugees housed in Australian detention camps on Nauru and Papua New Guinea would come to the U.S. under the agreement made with President Barack Obama.Within the first 10 days as president, Trump had a tense phone call with Turnbull about the agreement. He followed up the phone call with a tweet several days later where he called the deal "dumb."Turnbull, however, said during Saturday's press conference that "whatever the reservations of the president are," the decision "speaks volumes for the commitment, the integrity of President Trump, and your administration, sir, to honor that commitment."The disagreement with the deal has strained Australia's and the United State's comfortable relationship, with the majority of Australians having a negative view of Trump. In addition, Australia has been pressured to favor stronger ties with China over the U.S., to which Turnbull has resisted.During Saturday's press conference, Pence and Turnbull also both shared the opinion that China was key in helping de-escalated the nuclear threat from North Korea. Following meetings with Chinese President Xi Jinping earlier this month, Trump has repeatedly touted the relationship with China to help rein in North Korea.

Cruise Ship Crash Hits One Of Indonesia's Most Spectacular Coral Reefs

The Caledonian Sky, which flies a Bahamian flag, ran aground on the reef in the western Indonesian archipelago of Raja Ampat on March 4, forcing the evacuation of 118 passengers and crew members, The National Post Reported. More damage was caused to the reef when a tugboat arrived to pull the ship away. “A tugboat from Sorong city was deployed to help refloat the cruise ship, which is something that shouldn’t have happened because it damaged the reef even worse,” Ricardo Tapilatu of the Research Center for Pacific Marine Resources at the University of Papua told the Mongabay environmental news site. “They should’ve waited for high tide.” The local tourism office Stay Raja Ampat asked on its Facebook page: “How can this happen? Anchor damage from ships like these is bad enough, but actually grounding a ship on a reef takes it to a whole new level.” The ship was largely undamaged and continued its cruise once it was pulled from the reef and passengers were reloaded. A local Indonesian evaluation team estimates it could cost as much as $2 million to repair the reef damage and to install more buoys to keep cruise ships away from the fragile structure. The reef is a popular dive site and part of a national park. A spokesman for cruise ship company Noble Caledonia called the accident “unfortunate.” The company is “firmly committed to protection of the environment — which is why it is imperative that the reasons for it are fully investigated, understood and any lessons learned incorporated in operating procedures,” he said.  The government has contacted the company about compensation, according to Tapilatu. The vessel set sail from Papua New Guinea Feb. 25 and is scheduled to arrive in Manila on March 14. type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related Coverage + articlesList=58bcc2aae4b0fa65b844b550,58b52dd3e4b0a8a9b785ac0a,583c818be4b0c3968b76c53e -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

"РусАл" начинает крупный проект в Гвинее

"РусАл" и Гвинея согласовали условия разработки крупнейшего в мире бокситового месторождения "Диан-Диан". Разработка месторождения разделена на четыре этапа. "РусАл" получил месторождение бокситов в Гвинее Первый этап рассчитан до конца 2015 г. и предполагает строительство рудника мощностью 3 млн тонн бокситов в год. Кроме того, к этому сроку "РусАл" разработает ТЭО проекта по увеличению добычи бокситов до 9 млн тонн в год, а также ТЭО строительства глиноземного завода мощностью 1,2 млн тонн глинозема в год, сообщает "РусАл". Второй этап освоения месторождения завершится до конца 2019 г., добыча бокситов достигнет к этому времени 6 млн тонн в год. Третий этап, который "РусАл" также намерен завершить к концу 2019 г., предполагает строительство завода мощностью 1,2 млн тонн глинозема в год с соответствующим увеличением добычи бокситов на руднике. Соглашение предполагает возможность осуществления четвертого этапа, но это по усмотрению "РусАла", в зависимости от экономической ситуации в мире и потребностей компании. Четвертый этап предполагает расширение мощности глиноземного завода до 2,4 млн тонн в год и увеличение добычи бокситов до 12 млн тонн в год. "Подписание данного документа является важным шагом в развитии и укреплении взаимоотношений "РусАла" и руководства Гвинеи, свидетельствующим о растущем уровне доверия и взаимопонимания сторон. Условия работы, о которых мы договорились, выработаны с учетом интересов обеих сторон и отражают наш взгляд на перспективы мирового рынка алюминия. Я уверен, что обоюдовыгодный характер нашего сотрудничества будет способствовать улучшению инвестиционного климата в Республике Гвинея и укреплению конкурентоспособности "РусАла" как лидера мировой алюминиевой отрасли и одного из крупнейших инвесторов в эту африканскую страну", - отметил первый заместитель генерального директора "РусАла" Владислав Соловьев.
