Afghan Forces Retake Provincial Capital after Taliban Incursion: Afghan Defence Ministry.

Afghan government forces on Thursday wrested back control of a western provincial capital stormed by the Taliban a day earlier and hundreds of fresh troops have been deployed to the region, the defence ministry said. It said some fighting was continuing on the fringes of Qala-e-Naw, capital of Badghis province, which borders the central Asian country of Turkmenistan. Insurgents had on Wednesday seized key government buildings in the city including the police headquarters as part of a dramatic Taliban advance unfolding as foreign forces withdraw from Afghanistan after a 20-year-long intervention. “The city is fully (back) under our control and we are conducting operations against the Taliban on the outskirts of the city,” defence ministry spokesman Fawad Aman said. The ministry said 69 Taliban fighters had been killed in fresh operations on the edge of Qala-e-Naw — the first major provincial capital entered by the Islamist insurgents in their latest offensive. A large quantity of Taliban arms and ammunition was also seized by government forces, the ministry said on Twitter.(Reu.& DA,P)

At Least 8 Fighters Killed in Indian Kashmir.
[Ashraf Nayan (Abul Ashraf) --- Editor, AXJ news, Bangladesh ]

Eight suspected fighters and two Indian soldiers were killed in a series of counterinsurgency operations in Kashmir, police said on Thursday, as many shops were shut in parts of the region to mark the fifth anniversary of the death of popular Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani, whose killing triggered open defiance against Indian rule. The deaths in five separate incidents starting on Wednesday came as violence in the Himalayan region has increased in recent weeks. India’s military said two soldiers and two fighters were killed on Thursday in a clash along the Line of Control (LoC). Earlier, the Indian army said its soldiers killed a suspected fighter. Four suspected fighters were killed in two separate gunfights with Indian troops in southern Kashmir’s Pulwama and Kulgam districts early on Thursday, the Indian army said. It said soldiers recovered two rifles and two pistols from the sites of the clashes. (AP & DA,P)

CVF- V20 Summit: Consider more funding for climate change, Covid-19: Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina.
[Ashraf Nayan (Abul Ashraf) --- Editor, AXJ news, Bangladesh]

Bangladesh Prime minister Sheikh Hasina today said the world community should recognise people’s vulnerability, common aspirations, need for technology transfer and additional funding to tackle the impacts of climate change and the Covid-19 pandemic. “The international community and the developed countries should play their historical responsibilities and, their moral and legal obligations,” she said. The premier made this remark while opening the first Climate Vulnerable Finance Summit, joining virtually from her official residence Ganabhaban as she is the president of Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF).
Bangladesh hosted this summit organised by finance ministers of the Vulnerable Twenty–the V20 with finance minister AHM Mustafa Kamal in the chair. The prime minister said 48 countries under CVF-V20 account for only five percent of the total global emission, but they are the worst victims of the man-made crisis. In addition, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has added new miseries claiming lives and affecting livelihoods of millions, she said. In the Summit, the prime minister put forward five-point proposals, where she firstly pointed out that every country must pursue an ambitious target to curb greenhouse gas emissions to keep global temperature-rise below 1.5ºC. In the second proposal, she said the developed nations should facilitate the green recovery of the CVF-V20 countries and, dedicated support is also required for reducing the cost of capital and encouraging private sector participation. Thirdly, flow of funds must be predictable, balanced, innovative and incremental, she said, adding development partners and international financial institutions should adopt a user-friendly process of fund allocation and disbursement, and there must be synergies amongst various climate . Rich nations must help the CVF-V20 countries by closing the existing financial gaps in protecting climate-induced disasters, mentioned Sheikh Hasina in her fourth proposal, adding, financial support is needed to introduce smart insurance premium subsidies and capitalization of insurance products for CVF countries. Finally, she said, every vulnerable country may actively consider adopting a “climate prosperity plan” like our “Mujib Climate Prosperity Plan”. “I request the international community to provide all out support to realize our plans,” she said.
The prime minister said Bangladesh is preparing the National Adaptation Plan and about to finalise the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC). [ BSS & PA,B]

Myanmar Junta Committing 'Crimes Against Humanity': UN Expert.
[Ashraf Nayan (Abul Ashraf) --- Editor, AXJ news, Bangladesh ]

Myanmar's military has carried out crimes against humanity since seizing power in February, a top UN rights expert said on Wednesday, slamming the international community for failing to "end this nightmare". Speaking before the UN Human Rights Council, Thomas Andrews, the special rapporteur on the rights situation in Myanmar, decried the "widespread, systematic attacks against the people" since the coup five months ago. Myanmar has experienced mass protests and a brutal military response since the 1 February coup that ousted Aung San Suu Kyi. UN Human Rights chief Michelle Bachelet told the council on Tuesday that the situation in the country had "evolved from a political crisis to a multi-dimensional human rights catastrophe". "Suffering and violence throughout the country are devastating prospects for sustainable development, and raise the possibility of state failure or a broader civil war," she warned. Since the coup, nearly 900 people have been killed, while about 200,000 have been forced to flee their homes, according to UN numbers. At the same time, at least 5,200 people had been arbitrarily arrested, including more than 90 journalists. Andrews accused the military authorities of torture, "including torturing people in custody to death."
Some of the acts, he said, "amount to crimes against humanity", lamenting the fact that more had not been done to rein in the violations. "The international community is failing the people of Myanmar." (AFP 7 PA,b)

Indian PM Modi ‘overhauls’ Indian Cabinet: 36 New Faces Sworn in & Seven Cabinet Ministers Sacked.
[Ashraf Nayan (Abul Ashraf) --- Editor, AXJ news, Bangladesh ]

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday carried out a major expansion and reshuffle of his council of ministers inducting 43 people, including 36 new faces, taking its total strength to 77. Seven cabinet ministers were among a number of ministers dropped in the mega shake-up. Analysts say the mega cabinet reboot is an effort by Modi to offset criticism as the country emerges from a fierce second wave of Covid ahead of key state elections in 2022. The new members were sworn in at the presidential palace in the evening. It was the first cabinet reshuffle since Modi was re-elected in 2019 on a promise to transform India into a political and economic power. He has retained his core team at the foreign, finance, home and defence departments even though the economy is in a deep recession and there are widespread concerns that a surge in Covid-19 infections will stall the recovery. A number of key portfolios -- including health, law, Information and Technology and railways -- have gone to new ministers and junior ministers who got a promotion in Modi's Council of Ministers.
