Question of the Day
Admiral: U.S. open to military studying in China
SINGAPORE — The U.S. military would consider sending officers and cadets to China on study exchange programs if relations between the two countries improve, the commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet said Thursday.
Washington is seeking to improve its relationship with the Chinese military, and an officer exchange program would provide a better understanding of Chinese culture, goals and thoughts, Navy Adm. Patrick M. Walsh said.
“There’s a strong effort here to improve the relationship,” Adm. Walsh told the Associated Press on the sidelines of a global naval conference in Singapore.
President Obama and Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates have been in talks to help restore military-to-military relations.
Sonia Gandhi vows land reforms
NEW DELHI — Sonia Gandhi, president of the Indian National Congress party, on Thursday promised a change of law to reform land-acquisition laws after deadly clashes near the capital.
“We will soon bring a bill in parliament on land acquisition,” Mrs. Gandhi told a Congress rally in the city of Varanasi in northern Uttar Pradesh state.
The National Congress government is planning to replace the 1894 Land Acquisition Act, introduced during British colonial rule, with new legislation aimed at cutting down conflicts over the valuation of land and seeking to minimize social disruption caused by projects.
This month, two policemen and two farmers died in clashes in Uttar Pradesh state close to the outskirts of New Delhi during protests demanding greater compensation for land.
