The IMF pledges not to pressure Argentina to repay the loan

The Director-General of the International Monetary Fund, Kristalina Georgieva, announced during a visit to Buenos Aires, on Tuesday, that the fund “does not intend at the present time to pressure Argentina” to repay a $ 44 billion loan that the South American country hopes to reschedule.

“We came to Argentina first of all to listen to the authorities and listen to the Argentine people,” Georgieva told CNN. She added, “We have said very clearly that in this crisis it is important to support companies and, most importantly, support workers,” according to what was reported by Agence France-Presse.

Argentina hopes to renegotiate the repayment of a loan it obtained from the fund in 2018 under former president Maurizio Macri.

The loan was supposed to be worth $ 57 billion, but President Alberto Fernandez halted spending as soon as he took office in December 2019.

The first installment of this loan will be due in September 2021.

Commenting on Buenos Aires’ desire to renegotiate the scheduling of this loan’s payments, the Fund’s General Director said: “We will see how the dialogue will proceed … We hope that it will be useful to Argentina to define growth goals in the medium term, and to know what are the obstacles to growth, and also until the economy emerges. Stronger and able to meet the aspirations of the Argentine people ». “In Argentina, we want to be part of a sustainable solution to a situation that has fluctuated for many years between achievements and setbacks,” she added, stressing the Fund’s desire to cooperate with Buenos Aires “with an open mind in search of a way to give Argentina strength, stability and prosperity.”

Since 2018, Argentina has been suffering from an economic recession, exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic and its repercussions. Inflation in this country has exceeded 40 percent, while poverty and unemployment rates have increased since the pandemic crisis began.

50 Years Always ‘Lost’ From Every Conflict in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia is now starting to lose its luck, how come?

Sosok.IDSaudi Arabia continues to experience setbacks, loss of direction and influence in the Gulf region and Middle East.

More than 50 years after the kingdom began to gain prominence regionally and internationally as a key member of OPEC and the Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the kingdom is now on a steady decline path.

Launch from Al Jazeera (22/9/2020), though Saudi Arabia is home to Islam’s holiest sites and the world’s second-largest oil reserve, but misguided policies have rendered things futile.

What started off as a promising and ambitious push by the Prince Mohammed Bin Salman (MBS), soon turned into a reckless venture.

Guided by Mohammed Bin Zayed (MBZ) of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), MBS runs the kingdom all the way to the country.

However, nothing witnessed Saudi Arabia’s decline more than the sudden emergence of its junior counterpart as a warlike regional power, meddling in Libya and Tunisia and supporting dictators and war criminals, such as Egypt’s Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and Bashar al-Assad’s Syria.

Abu Dhabi recklessly ran forward and dragged Saudi Arabia with it.

It is also a testament to MBS’s support for MBZ’s move to link Gulf security with Israel as a way to protect their regional rule and influence.

“World Mental Health Day” is an important occasion than ever before

It may seem reprehensible or unknown to many, but there is a World Mental Health Day, scheduled for October 10 every year. While many people wonder about the goal of this day, when reading the figures related to mental health worldwide issued by the World Health Organization and other institutions concerned with this field, we find that there must be a global day that pushes governments, civil society institutions, and workers in this field. The field is to raise awareness of the suffering of billions of people, and try to find solutions to reduce their suffering.

Shocking numbers

Almost one billion people in the world suffer from mental disorders, and alcohol and drug abuse kills 3 million people annually, while suicide kills one person every 40 seconds, which is the second leading cause of death for young people between the ages of 15 and 29 years.
Today, billions of people around the world are affected by the Corona pandemic, which is also exacerbating the damage to human mental health. Depression is one of the main causes of illness and disability among adolescents and adults, with 1 in 5 children and adolescents suffering from a mental disorder. And people with severe mental disorders such as schizophrenia often die ten or twenty years earlier than others.

More than 75 percent of people with mental illnesses, in low- and middle-income countries, receive no treatment at all, as a result of the decades-long chronic shortage of mental health promotion, disease prevention and care. Stigma, discrimination and human rights violations against persons with mental illness are still widespread in these societies.

The loss of productivity caused by depression and anxiety is one of the most common mental disorders, costing the global economy nearly $ 1 trillion annually, while governments allocate less than 2 percent of their national budgets to mental health. And that is despite every dollar invested in expanding treatment for depression and anxiety, it brings a return of $ 5.

Corona and mental health

Prior to the outbreak of the Coronavirus, high-cost care services in the field of mental health were limited around the world, but this outbreak and its implications for the weakness of the health system, home quarantine and social distancing led to an exacerbation of the situation, due to fear of the spread of infection and the risk of its spread in the residence facilities for mental patients, such as Care and psychiatric institutions, in addition to closing mental health facilities to divert their use to care for people with HIV.
The measures to restrict the movement of people and home quarantine, cancel the daily routine of employees and workers, change the pattern of business and close schools in the interest of distance education, temporary unemployment and the absence of direct contact with other family members, friends and colleagues, manage feelings of fear of infection with the virus, and concern about close people at risk. In particular, all are reasons that have led to more alertness and vigilance to pay attention to mental health at the time of the Corona outbreak, especially for previously mentally ill people.

For this reason, the World Health Organization joined forces with partner organizations, United for Global Mental Health and the World Federation for Mental Health, to call for this year’s World Mental Health Day, for a significant increase in Investments are directed at the mental health sector, especially since the economic consequences of this pandemic are already being felt, as companies have laid off their employees in an attempt to save their business, or have already closed their doors. It is expected that the need for support in the field of mental health and psychosocial support will increase in the coming months and years due to the pandemic that is ravaging the world. Investing nationally and internationally in mental health programs, which have already suffered for years from chronic underfunding, is now more important than it has ever been.

Events on the International Day

Ingrid Daniels, President of the World Federation of Mental Health, said: “It has now been nearly 30 years since the World Mental Health Federation launched the first World Mental Health Day. During this period, we have witnessed an increasing openness to talk about mental health in many countries of the world.” The World Federation for Mental Health is an international organization established in 1948 to advance the issues of prevention of mental and emotional disorders, provide those with them with the necessary treatment and care, and promote mental health.

As for Elisha London, founder and CEO of United for Global Mental Health, she said, “It is now more necessary to invest in mental health than at any time in light of the lack of access to adequate and quality mental health services for many.”
On October 10, the World Health Organization will, for the first time, host a global online event on awareness-raising around the world to reduce mental illness and the harmful use of alcohol and drugs. World leaders and mental health experts will join the WHO Director-General to speak about their commitment to mental health and the additional work that can be done in this area. World-renowned musicians who have raised their voices loudly in advocating the importance of mental health will participate in performing musical connections. Sports figures of both genders, whose lives have been affected by mental health conditions, will also participate to talk about their experiences and showcase their ways of dealing with health conditions such as depression and anxiety.

Iran Accuses Saudi Arabia of Troubling in the Middle East

loading…

NEW YORK – Permanent Representative Iran at the United Nations, Majid Takht-Ravanchi, describes Saudi Arabia as a major source of instability in the Middle East region. Ravanchi said the stark fact is Saudi Arabia is the main financial backer of the Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and his aggression against Yemen.

The statement was a response to the speech of the King of Saudi Arabia Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud at the UN General Assembly that attacked Iran. According to him, the accusations made by King Salman were baseless and baseless.(Also read: King Salman Attacks Iran in Debut UN General Assembly)

“Saudi Arabia has been a source of instability in the Middle East region for decades,” Ravanchi said as quoted by the Iranian news agency, IRNA, Friday (25/9/2020).

Ravanchi said that Saudi Arabia has carried out a series of disinformation campaigns to divert attention from its activities that violate the basic principles of morality and humanity and the rule of international law, in particular international humanitarian law.

“Saudi Arabia is the main financial backer of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein’s eight years of aggression against the Islamic Republic of Iran in which he committed many crimes, including the use of chemical weapons against Iran and the City and Iraqis,” he said.

He also accused Saudi Arabia of supporting terrorist groups. Saudi Arabia has also pursued a destructive policy in the Middle East, referring to the Gulf kingdom’s interference in the Yemen conflict.

The conflict in Yemen has caused death and destruction in which thousands of civilians have been killed and displaced, including children and women. The armed conflict has also caused one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises as millions of people still face the risk of starvation.(Also read: Eight Million Children Out of School in Yemen Due to War and Covid-19)

“Such crimes are so brutal and gruesome that the United Nations has placed the country at the top of the global child killer list. Although later, for obvious non-professional reasons, his name was dropped from the list,” he said.

Ravanchi then emphasized that restoring peace and security in the Middle East requires sincere dialogue with the active and constructive involvement of all regional countries based on mutual respect, inclusiveness and basic principles of international law.

He then mentioned that the Iranian president had launched the so-called Hormuz Peace Effort at the UN General Assembly last year which he said received positive reactions from a number of regional countries.

“I underline that relying on foreign troops whose primary interest is selling more lethal weapons to this region has not resulted in security for the region,” he said.

“On the contrary, the countries of the region must resolve their differences through dialogue and rely on their own capabilities to promote peace and security in the region. In this context, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is called upon to accept such calls for dialogue among all the Persian Gulf coastal States,” he snapped.
