|v The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) on Thursday warned the Iraqi government to stay out of soccer matters after they withdrew the national team from the Gulf Cup in frustration at being stripped of the hosting rights.
The heads of the eight Football Associations that normally compete in the regional event agreed Tuesday to switch the tournament to the Saudi -Arabian city of Jeddah Stephan El Shaarawy Jersey , citing incomplete infrastructure and a FIFA ban on Iraq hosting -international matches because of security concerns.
Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki used his weekly televised speech on Wednesday to describe the snub as "prejudiced against the rights of the Iraqi people."
The withdrawal of the team for the tournament, which is due to be held at the end of 2014 or in early 2015, comes after Bahrain stepped in to host this year's edition after Iraq was originally selected.
Iraq's Ministry of Youth and Sport said it was "extremely disappointed" at the latest switch, denouncing the decision as politically motivated but the AFC, led by Bahrain FA President Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al Khalifa, had little sympathy.
"It's the right of the Iraq Football Association to decide on the interest of their team Rick Karsdorp Jersey , fans and other stakeholders. The government should not interfere in the football affairs," the AFC said in a statement on Thursday. "Both FIFA and AFC do not tolerate any interference in football matters by the government or any other -bodies and AFC would like to ask them to stay away in the interest of Iraqi football."
Iraq, 2007 Asian champions, have paid a heavy penalty for government interference before with world governing body FIFA banning them in 2009 after the Iraqi Olympic Committee disbanded the FA and government forces seized control of the FA offices.
BRUSSELS, Dec. 22 (Xinhua) -- The European Union (EU) and China should not be competitors in Africa but should build on their complementarity, according to European Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development Neven Mimica.
In a recent written interview with Xinhua Radja Nainggolan Jersey , Mimica said that the EU stood ready to work constructively with Chinese partners in fields such as infrastructure investments.
FIND BETTER WAYS TO WORK ON GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT
As strategic partners who will celebrate the 40th anniversary of their diplomatic relations next year, the EU and China must find better ways to work together on global development challenges in Africa and beyond, said Mimica.
For the EU's part, the EU "has longstanding relations with Africa, based on comprehensive political dialogue and far-reaching trade and economic relations," he said.
"The EU remains one of the most open markets for African products and further integration between our respective markets will hopefully be achieved through the Economic Partnership Agreements that we have been negotiating with the different African regions so far Patrik Schick Jersey ," he said, noting that the EU also needed to help Africa to take better advantage of these market access opportunities, which meant doing more to enhance its capacity to produce and trade.
He said the EU needed to better focus EU development cooperation instruments on building sound regulatory environments, supporting business development and making sure that there is better access to finance, and it would be especially important for job-creating micro, small and medium sized businesses.
Besides Maxime Gonalons Jersey , as more infrastructure investments are also needed in Africa, the EU "will use our blending instrument more actively, combining EU grants (from the Commission) with loans from public and, more recently, where relevant, private financiers Marco Tumminello Jersey ," said Mimica.
Mimica paid a three-day visit to China in November as the first commissioner to travel to China in Jean-Claude Juncker's commission.
Recalling the visit, Mimica said "as I discussed with my Chinese counterparts, we stand ready to work constructively with Chinese partners in those fields, building on our respective strengths and comparative advantages."
For that matter the EU and China could start sharing information, comparing their respective strategies at country and regional level and looking for synergies, he said.
CONVERGENCE BETWEEN RESPECTIVE POLICY OBJECTIVES
Mimica said the primary objective of his mission to China was to "come to a better understanding of our respective positions on global and regional development challenges and processes and move towards closer relations in the future on those issues."
"While perspectives may sometimes differ Lukasz Skorupski Jersey , the EU and China share significant common ground and by working together, they can play an active and positive role in the negotiations leading up to the September UN summit," he said.
World leaders are expected to adopt a post-2015 development agenda following the 2015 deadline for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
The EU and China can also learn a lot from each other's development policy thinking and experience, Mimica said, noting that his interlocutors in China agreed that "there is a lot of convergence between our respective policy objectives, for example our common focus on poverty reduction Luca Pellegrini Jersey , social protection, infrastructure, environment, energy and natural resources."
At the same time, Mimica did not deny that "some misunderstandings still prevail on both sides on the exact nature and modalities of our foreign aid instruments."
Therefore, he said in this context Lorenzo Pellegrini Jersey , the two sides very openly discussed how to enhance dialogue and consultation during his China visit.
"In Africa and beyond, better dialogue and learning from each other will help us to find better ways to cooperate with each other and ultimately improve our global impact for the benefit of poorer countries," he said.
EBOLA IMPACT TO BE FELT FOR YEARS
Mimica also said that Ebola's impact will be felt for years and "this is where develop.
