ทัวร์เกาหลีLast month also saw him suffer a blow when his vice-president Cyril Ramaphosa, who campaigned on an anti-corruption ticket, was elected ANC president after seeing off Zuma's former wife Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.

"Cuba negotiated a generous debt relief package with most of its bilateral creditors at the very end of 2015," Buchheit told Reuters. "The London Club offer draws on certain features of the deal with the bilateral creditors but in some respects it is even more generous to the Cubans."

A raft of U.S. industrial companies, which are major consumers of steel, saw their shares decline. Caterpillar Inc and Boeing fell by more than 2 percent, while crane maker Manitowoc Co fell by more than 6 percent.

Under the 2015 deal, a number of Paris Club of creditor nations forgave $8.5 billion of $11.1 billion official debt it had defaulted on through 1986, plus charges. Repayment of the remaining debt was structured over 18 years, and Havana paid the first two instalments due since.

However, the creditor group estimated it was holding at least 50 percent of Cuba's private sector debt. Olivares-Caminal added the proposal would be open for a limited period of time, though declined to give further detail.

The law will also set an age - 15 - under which one will be presumed not to have agreed to having sex with someone aged 18 or more. This age of consent will facilitate rape prosecutions, Gender Equality Minister Marlene Schiappa said.

Together with the age of consent, one of the most eye-catching aspects of the bill, whose main points have been publicly debated over the past few months, has been the plan to punish sexual harassment on the street with fines.

Cuba does not publish up-to-date information on its foreign debt, citing a need to keep sensitive economic ทัวร์เกาหลี information from Washington, which it has long accused of trying to disrupt its financial and trade relations under a comprehensive U.S. sanctions regime.

Zuma failed to abide by recommendations made by the country's anti-corruption watchdog in 2014 over $15 million of taxpayer-funded refurbishments at his personal home in the eastern KwaZulu-Natal province.

Parliament´s subcommittee on reviewing procedures said it would convene Wednesday and Thursday "to deliberate on a draft procedure for implementing section 89(1) of the Constitution: Removal of President."

It added that once the subcommittee had finalised a draft procedure it would need to go before the National Assembly for adoption, and that "in keeping with the Assembly´s commitment to comply fully with the Constitutional Court´s majority judgment", lawmakers had been notified and furnished with documentation for consideration.

"In the longer run we've seen that tariffs generally don't work and actually they generally hurt the economy. In the immediate to longer run it's probably seen as a step towards trade wars (and) retaliation."

PARIS, March 21 (Reuters) - France will announce a series of measures against sexual violence on Wednesday, including on-the-spot fines for sexual harassment on the street and extended deadlines for filing rape complaints.

"We are trying to give the country another chance to reach an amicable understanding with creditors," Olivares-Caminal told Reuters. "This would give them very beneficial terms to remedy their situation vis-à-vis capital markets."

Until recently, the ruling African National Congress has steadfastly supported Zuma. But, a year out from the expiry of his second term, corruption allegations have tarnished his image and eroded his support base.

Ramaphosa is set to distance himself from Zuma as the ANC seeks to retain its absolute majority in next year's general elections even if the latter still retains a constituency of support within the movement after ten years as its leader.

The committee added documents including a draft procedure drawn up in April 2016, but not finalised, and a comparative study, compiled in 2015, about impeachment proceedings of seven other parliaments on the removal of a head of state.

As part of the accord, some creditors were also preparing to swap debt for an equity stake in local development projects. This was seen as a breakthrough with Cuba agreeing for the first time to give rich capitalist countries equity in development projects in sectors like manufacturing and agriculture.Blue Apron pioneered the meal-kit market, selling subscriptions for pre-portioned ingredients paired with recipes for restaurant-style meals like tilapia piccata and miso-glazed barramundi, but has faced new rivals including Amazon.com Inc .

C'est la deuxième fois que ce marché de Noël s'ouvre à Alger, mais si Caritas était restée discrète extrêmement discrète sur le sujet l'année dernière, l'organisation a cette année décidé de promouvoir l'événement, appelant au "vivre ensemble entre" chrétiens et musulmans.

"We think the euro's weakness may be overdone as despite the U.S. Treasury yield spike theme reverberating in the markets over the last 24 hours, the U.S. economy is very much in the late stages of its economic cycle and a cautious ECB meeting is baked into markets," said Christin Tuxen, an FX strategist at Danske Bank in Copenhagen.

"We want to put an end to this group cyber-harassment by making clear that every single person that is taking part will have to answer for it, even if they just sent a few tweets," Schiappa said on Tuesday. ($1 = 0.8161 euros) (Writing by Ingrid Melander Editing by Alison Williams)

ALGER, 17 décembre (Reuters) - Un petit marché de Noël a été organisé cette semaine à Alger à l'initiative de l'organisation Caritas qui vise la population chrétienne originaire d'Afrique subsaharienne dans un pays dont la quasi-totalité des habitants sont de culture musulmane.

Higher U.S. yields can put pressure on the currencies of emerging market countries that run current account deficits such as Indonesia and India, said Satoshi Okagawa, senior global markets analyst for Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation in Singapore.

It said that in 2013, a Harvard research division found that over a decade Asian-American admission rates were lower than those for whites annually even though whites only outperformed Asian-American applicants on a subjective rating of a student's personality.

President Emmanuel Macron has said the bill is meant to ensure "women are not afraid to be outside", after a wave of sexual assault allegations levelled against men in the public eye around the world triggered a protest movement online.

Schiappa said on Tuesday that the fines, to be paid on the spot by offenders, would range from 90 euros to 750 euros ($110 to $920). They could be higher for repeat offenders or in the case of aggravating circumstances.

In Friday's brief, Harvard said the percentage of Asian-Americans it admitted had actually grown by 29 percent over the last decade. It called the 2013 report "preliminary and incomplete" and said that it was done with limited admissions data.
