Answering a question about Indo-Pak ties in an interview to Samaa TV Aziz said India has always tried to maintain its hegemony in the South Asia region "Pakistan rejected this (Indian) hegemony and has effectively protected its interests and its stance over Kashmir nuclear deterrence and conventional balance" Aziz was quoted as saying A file photo of Pak’s National Security Advisorm Sartaj Aziz Reuters He maintained that "protecting Pakistan’s sovereignty and vital interests is a great achievement as a nation" Talking about the Afghan refugees problem Aziz said it became a security issue for Pakistan as refugee camps have become "safe havens for terrorists" due to unregulated movement "We have reestablished our writ over FATA (tribal areas) but if Afghan border remains unregulated our tribal areas can’t stay safe" he said Calling for repatriation of Afghan refugees Aziz said the repatriation will be a gradual movement and Pakistan will need a plan of action for the process He said

will enhance North America’s credentials in the 2026 bidding contest Concacaf hopes Fifapresident Gianni Infantino earlier this week raised the prospect of adding another 16 teams which would reduce the pool of countries with sufficient infrastructure "From a 2026 perspective pick a number (of finalists) and North American can handle it" Victor Montagliani president of the North and Central America and Caribbean soccer confederation told The Associated Press "A Concacafbid would be strong regardless of what number we finally set on" The Concacaf official logo AFP The World Cup was last staged in the Concacaf region by the United States in 1994 The Americans are keen on another shot at hosting in 2026 potentially linking up with neighbors Canada and Mexico "Is there an opportunity to combine the three countries Perhaps We don’t know that yet" said Montagliani a Fifavice president "There have been zero formal discussions We are not there yet" After the troubled bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 tournaments which sparked years of corruption investigations Fifa will be hoping for a smoother 2026 vote Originally earmarked for 2017 the decision by the Fifa membership is now not due until 2020 With Africa South America Europe and Asia hosting the World Cups between 2010 and 2022 it had been widely accepted that it should be North America’s turn for the first time since 1994 Fifa’s statues currently prevent consecutive World Cups being staged on the same continent but China could yet seek to follow 2022 host Qatar Chinese conglomerate Wanda signed up as a top-tier Fifa sponsor in March saying it wanted to be "better placed" to help decide where future editions of the World Cup are awarded "There has to be some sort of rotation or else you look what is happening with the Olympics" Montagliani said referring to Tokyo hosting the 2020 Olympics between the 2018 and 2022 Winter Games in Pyeongchang South Korea and Beijing "I don’t think it’s a good thing that it keeps on going to one area It’s not a World Cup that belongs in one region So I think so sort of rotation needs to occur because the World Cup belongs to the world and we need to respect that" Montagliani applauded Infantino for "thinking outside the box" by floating the idea of a 48-team World Cup "There are traditionalists in the game who I think if it was up to them would still have a 16-team World Cup" Montagliani said in an interview in London "The reality is that the World Cup is not just an economic beast but a product that inspires hope for countries So if we can improve it make it bigger without losing its romanticism —why not" Before Fifa settles on a new format Montagliani is sure there will be an "exhaustive process of review and cost benefit analysis" The format and bidding process will begin to be discussed next week when Infantino chairs a Fifa Council meeting in Zurich In outlining one potential format earlier this week Infantino said "You could have a tournament in which the 16 best teams advance to a group stage and the other 16 will came out of a ‘playoff’ ahead of the group stage and the World Cup could end up with 48 teams" The more pressing issues for Fifa center on the 2018 World Cup with the spotlight increasingly on Russia over racism and doping in sport and the involvement in the war in Syria Montagliani sees no need to strip Russia of the World Cup "It’s a very delicate situation because we are a sport" he said "You try to as much as possible stay out of the geopolitics of the world because it’s a just a dangerous thing (to mix) and so it is a bit of walking a tightrope" Moscow: The next round of Syria peace talks in Kazakhstan’s capital Astana has been scheduled for 4-5 July the Kazakh foreign ministry said on Monday Representational Image AFP "The participants plan to discuss the situation in Syria the process of abiding by agreements reached during previous rounds of talks in Astana including the creation of de-escalation zones in Syria" the Kazakh foreign ministry said in an official statement Earlier on Monday Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had said the talks would be held on 10 July A source in Geneva close to the negotiations confirmed to AFP that the Astana talks would take place on 4-5 July but that the Geneva talks would start on 10 July Lavrov told reporters in Beijing that the UN Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura — who announced the date for the Geneva round on Saturday would take part in the Russian-backed talks A new round of Astana talks had been scheduled for June but was indefinitely postponed as key players wrangled over the future of fragile safe zones agreed for Syria in May Russia and Iran which back Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces in the war and Turkey a supporter of rebel forces signed an agreement on 4 May on setting up four safe zones Lavrov today said these zones "are one of the possible options to move forward together" Moscow has spearheaded the Astana talks since the start of the year as it tries to turn its game-changing military intervention on the ground into a negotiated settlement The tense negotiations — seen as a complement to the broader UN-backed talks in Geneva — have involved armed rebels and government officials and have focused mainly on military issues The last Geneva talks ended on 19 May after four days without making any real progress The six-year Syrian conflict has killed more than 320000 people and seen nearly two thirds of Syrians forced from their homes By: AP | Melbourne | Updated: January 23 2017 7:50 pm Milos Raonic said he’s on the mend and playing with new focus under his recently hired coach Richard Krajicek Top News Not every tennis player quotes from Goethe on Twitter keeps a journal and visits art exhibitions during tournaments Milos Raonic though has taken a slightly different path in life He grew up playing tennis in snowy Canada not sunny Florida And his parents immigrants from Montenegro knew nothing about tennis On long drives to tournaments his father would quiz him with math problems not break down his forehand The Canadian has many passions in life but make no mistake he’s still very focused on his career goal _ winning a Grand Slam And with Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic now out of the draw at the Australian Open the third-ranked Raonic is suddenly the highest seed remaining Is this his best opportunity to finally break through and win a major trophy “It sort of crosses your mind” he said after his 7-6 (6) 3-6 6-4 6-1 win over Roberto Bautista Agut in the fourth round on Monday “But it’s very insignificant because there’s a lot for me to even get past … I have some very difficult tasks ahead of me” said Raonic who reached the Wimbledon final and the semifinals at Melbourne Park last year “I’m pretty intent on staying in that moment in that sort of challenge one at a time” Indeed Raonic has a significant obstacle in front of him next 14-time major winner Rafael Nadal who defeated Gael Monfils in the fourth round After ending his season early last year because of a wrist injury a rejuvenated Nadal has been playing inspired tennis in Melbourne He also has a 6-2 record against Raonic though the Canadian won their most recent match at the season-opening Brisbane International event The other concern for Raonic has been his health _ he came down with a cold earlier in the tournament and was bed-ridden for a day His timing seemed slightly off against Bautista Agut when he racked up 55 unforced errors and even uncharacteristically hurled his racket to the court midway through the third set But Raonic said he’s on the mend and playing with new focus under his recently hired coach Richard Krajicek Krajicek’s addition at the start of the season was just the latest tweak by Raonic aimed at perfecting his game In the past few years Raonic has been coached by Riccardo Piatti and former pros Ivan Ljubicic and Carlos Moya and during Wimbledon he hired John McEnroe as an adviser on a temporary basis Then at the start of this year he parted ways with Moya (who has since joined Nadal’s team) and brought on Krajicek The reason: to help him solve the riddle of the only two players ahead of him in the rankings _ Murray and Djokovic He has a combined 3-17 record against the two “I don’t think I’m ever going to be the best guy from the baseline by any means especially not against them” he said before the Australian Open “If I’m going to take it to them it’s by coming forward So I wanted to improve in that aspect” Raonic has been effective at net thus far in Melbourne; he tried serve-and-volleying against Gilles Simon in the third round winning 20 of 32 approaches Now he’ll see if he can keep moving forward against Nadal and take another step toward the trophy “(It’s) coming together now” he said “putting in a great finish to the season last year and playing what I feel is some of my best tennis right now” For all the latest Sports News download
