Germany?s New Policy Plan Puts The Us On Catch Up - Yahoo News

To be clear, Review 2014Foreign Policy Thinking Ahead, as Steinmeier named his project when he took office in December 2013, is an implicit challenge to the U.S. policy establishment. It is almost certainly intended to be so, although those courteous Germans would never say as much. CrisisRulesEurope, as the report published last week is titled, is interesting in all sorts of dimensions. It positions Germany, which is to say Chancellor Merkel, as Europes all-but-declared leader. Since the document expresses convictions, ideas, and intentions broadly shared across the Continent, one is tempted to start talking about Merkelism, but well leave that to the Europeans themselves. It commits Berlin to http://thadlxzv.soup.io/post/540350752/Australia-Post-Flags-First-Annual-Loss-In a course of action that has long been evident as a http://virgilkamx.postbit.com preference but never quite stated. While Germany acknowledges that military force will at times be necessarywhich is big enough in the contextSteinmeier has rethought how best to use every resource at Berlins disposal. I believe that foreign policy is about more than just two extremes: either just talking or shooting, either futile diplomacy or Bundeswehr deployments abroad, the foreign minister, a Social Democrat in Merkels across-the-aisle coalition, told the Bundestag. Related: Is Putin Trying to Pry Greece Out of the European Union? Before anyone else, Steinmeier has put another key issue squarely on the table.

Austria's Raiffeisenbank Says Will Close Branches In Russian Far East - Yahoo Finance

Banks are suffering from higher bad loan provisions and lower profits because of the crisis, deepened by Western sanctions over Moscow's role in the Ukraine conflict and lower oil prices. Raiffeisenbank said the decision to close seven branches in six of the far east's main cities was taken because of the low potential for developing its customer base in the region, which is sparsely populated and largely served by Russian banks. "In the current environment, it is important to be efficient and profitable," the bank said in a statement. "In the development of our sales network, we will focus on those cities where our offices show sufficient profitability." Foreign banks have more info been cutting their exposure to Russia, once considered one of the world's fastest growing banking markets, since the crisis hit last year, driving the rouble down against the dollar and fuelling capital flight. Raiffeisenbank said it was considering the possible sale of its loan portfolio and customer segment of small and micro businesses, and was doing all it could to support its customers. On Thursday, Standard & Poor's rating agency said the Russian banking system could see its bad loans rise to 17-23 percent this year from around 8 percent stocks last year, and that profit for the sector was seen at close to zero. Russia has been forced to support many of its banks with capital injections and other measures after its largest lenders were all but cut off from global financial markets by European Union and U.S. sanctions.
