British queen says must guard against division in Europe| Reuters

BERLIN Britain's Queen Elizabeth urged Europe on Wednesday to guard against division in the continent, at a state banquet in Berlin where Germany's president declared: "the European Union needs Great Britain". On the first full day of her visit to Germany, the queen said she and German President Joachim Gauck had seen "the worst but also the best" of Europe in their lifetimes, adding: "we must work hard to maintain the benefits of the post-war world." The 89-year-old queen, now in her 63rd year on the throne, lived in Britain during World War Two. In her fifth visit to Germany, where she will remain until Friday, she said: "We know that division in Europe is dangerous and that we must guard against it in the west, as well as in the east of our continent #Wikileaks #Middle East #Greece #Russia #Europe #United Kingdom

Iraqi Shi'ite special forces take lead in Baiji fight| Reuters

BAGHDAD Iraq's most powerful Shi'ite force said it is relying more heavily on elite units who fought in Syria in the battle against Islamic State for control of a critical Iraqi refinery and is now well placed to counter the militants' guerrilla warfare. Iraq's biggest refinery complex near the town of Baiji north of Baghdad has changed hands several times over many months of fighting and is one of the main fronts in Iraq's bid to retake the third of its territory held by the Sunni insurgents. Haji Jawad al-Talabawi, a military commander and spokesman for the Asaib Ahl al-Haq militia, said it is now more effective in street combat and he is hopeful that the tide will turn in favour of government troops and their Shi'ite militia allies #Business #Wikileaks #Cricket #Islam #Middle East #markets

Turks unlikely to change their vote for snap election - pollster| Reuters

ANKARA Turks are unlikely to change their vote in any snap election soon, pollsters said on Wednesday, even after the June 7 election deprived parliament of a single-party government and raised the possibility of coalition politics. Analysts, politicians and at least one previous poll have suggested the governing AK Party would win stronger support in the case of a snap election, citing wide discomfort in the electorate with the prospect of a coalition government #Politics #India #Wikileaks #Technology #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom

Indonesia bill allows MPs hundreds of millions in setback to war on graft| Reuters

JAKARTA Indonesia's parliament voted to allow MPs use of nearly a billion dollars in state funds to develop their constituencies, which a minister said on Wednesday would only encourage more graft in one of the world's most corrupt countries. At the same time, the house pressed ahead with debating a bill that would further weaken the country's anti-corruption agency. Indonesia consistently ranks among the most corrupt countries in the world, according to Transparency International, which also rates its parliament, the house of representatives, as one of its most corrupt public institutions. #India #Wikileaks #Technology #markets #Entertainment
