Lavrov says Russia will not respond in kind to Western sanctions

By Alexei Anishchuk and Thomas Grove MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia will not impose tit-for-tat measures or "fall into hysterics" over Western economic sanctions, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday, trying to stake out the high ground amid growing tensions with the West. Speaking at a news conference, Lavrov said he hoped for an objective investigation into the crash in eastern Ukraine of a Malaysian airliner on July 18. Russia is facing more sanctions from Europe over its role in the Ukraine crisis, which has left Russia's ties with the West at their most strained since the Cold War, but Lavrov said such measures could make Russia more economically independent.

Pool, phones, yoga: world intrudes on Amish now home in Ohio after prison

Laundry hangs between the homes of Kathryn and Raymond Miller and Nancy and Freeman Burkholder in Bergholz By Kim Palmer BERGHOLZ Ohio (Reuters) - Amish farmer Raymond Miller developed a taste for Mountain Dew soda, got his GED, and wonders if he should get a pool table after learning to play in prison. His wife, Kathryn, who had never ridden a public bus before boarding one last year to go to prison for forcibly cutting the hair of her relatives, was introduced to yoga and step classes while behind bars. The Amish shun modern technology and regard beards for adult men and uncut hair for married women as sacred. Unless, like Raymond Miller, 29, you are on probation and must make daily phone calls to a probation officer and wear an electronic ankle monitor while harvesting hay.

Argentine debt mediator: no resolution, delegation returning to Argentina

Argentina's Finance Secretary Pablo Lopez arrives for debt negotiation talks with court-appointed mediator Daniel Pollack in New York By Daniel Bases and Alejandro Lifschitz NEW YORK/BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Argentina failed to reach a breakthrough with the U.S. court-appointed mediator in its battle with holdout creditors on Friday in talks that lasted just an hour, suggesting a settlement to avoid a default next week remains elusive. The Argentine delegation headed home to seek instruction from the government after the talks in New York, mediator Daniel Pollack said, while the country's economy ministry underscored it would continue the dialogue with him over the next few days. Earlier this week, U.S. District Judge Thomas Griesa ordered Argentina and holdout creditors who have rejected its debt restructurings to meet continuously with Pollack to try to reach a deal and avoid the country's second default in 12 years. If they fail to reach a deal and holdouts do not ask for a suspension of Griesa's ruling to pay them back in full on their defaulted bonds, the judge will prevent Argentina from making a July 30 deadline for a payment on its exchanged bonds.


Factbox: Potential Argentine debt default looms as July 30 approaches

By Daniel Bases NEW YORK (Reuters) - Argentina, out of legal options to avoid paying a court-awarded $1.33 billion plus interest to holdout creditors who twice spurned a restructuring offer, has until July 30 to either pay them, negotiate a settlement or default. The parties have not yet met face-to-face despite the addition of a court-appointed mediator who has warned time is running short for Argentina to avoid a default. A default would be Argentina's second since it missed a payment in January 2002 that affected roughly $100 billion in sovereign debt, and would set back Latin America's No. 3 economy from efforts this year to re-engage with the international financial system. Argentina, after a contentious period of discussion, held a restructuring in 2005 that saw holders of a very low 76 percent of the total debt accept the exchange.

Aqunio urges support as scandal threatens to hurt Philippine economy

Philippine President Aquino delivers his fifth SONA during the joint session of the 16th Congress at the House of Representatives of the Philippines in Quezon city, metro Manila By Manuel Mogato and Karen Lema MANILA (Reuters) - Philippine President Benigno Aquino called on the nation on Monday to support his reforms as he faced the biggest political crisis in his four years in power, a spending scandal that could damage his anti-graft image and undermine reforms. The Supreme Court this month declared partly illegal a 145 billion pesos ($3.34 billion) economic stimulus fund that Aquino created in 2011 from budget savings, sparking a storm of controversy that put into doubt his commitment to fighting corruption. Economists are concerned the controversy over the Supreme Court's ruling is slowing public spending because officials are more wary about accusations of recklessness and are subjecting decisions to more scrutiny, putting at risk big infrastructure projects.

Europe nervy as Russian assets hit by new sanctions talk

Traders are pictured at their desks in front of the DAX board at the Frankfurt stock exchange By Marc Jones LONDON (Reuters) - The euro was stuck near its lowest level since November and Russian markets tumbled for a third straight day on Monday as new European sanctions for Moscow chilled the already frosty relationship between the two. The 28-nation European Union reached an outline agreement on Friday on its first economic sanctions on Russia. Russia warned the moves would hamper cooperation between the two and undermine the fight against terrorism, although Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday that Moscow would not impose tit-for-tat measures. Europe's main bourses were flat in subdued trade as strong earnings updates and relief over Russia's response, and that the EU measures had steered away from Russia's gas industry, balanced concerns about the impact of the sanctions.


Foreign buyers fuel concerns amid Miami luxury condo boom

File photo of the Miami skyline, pictured from a causeway on a rainy day in Miami By Zachary Fagenson MIAMI (Reuters) - As construction cranes crowd the coastline and developers strive to lure wealthy international buyers with brand name towers and lavish amenities, there are signs Miami’s latest condo boom has begun to slow and a possible oversupply could temper record prices. Since mid-2011, some 175 towers with more than 27,000 units have been proposed in Miami, says real estate analyst Peter Zalewski of CondoVultures. Florida led the nation for foreign buyers in the quarter ending in March, attracting 23 percent of $92.2 billion of nationwide sales, according to the National Association of Realtors. In the face of economic uncertainty and potentially higher taxes in Europe, Asia and Latin America, wealthy individuals are drawn to Miami's year-round sunshine and prices that are still low when compared with other global capitals.

Ukraine PM renews push for austerity measures

In Ukraine's east, Soviet-style economy withers under onslaught

A man walks past a coal mine in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk By Lina Kushch, Elizabeth Piper and Natalia Zinets DONETSK/KIEV (Reuters) - After pro-Russian rebels took 720 kg of explosives, 360 detonators and almost 1 km of wiring, the Skochinskiy coal mine, an ageing stalwart of the economy in Ukraine's Donbass region, was put out of action. Fierce fighting and rebel requisitioning have stopped work at many of the coal mines in and around the strongholds of Donetsk and Luhansk. Without the fuel, nearby steel factories and electricity plants across Ukraine are struggling to work. Many in Ukraine's western and central regions see the industrial east as a burden, home to an outdated Soviet economy of monolithic factories that offer little to the rest of a country where other sectors and smaller firms are more common.

Gold slips on stronger dollar, but holds above $1,300

Liquid gold is poured to form gold dore bars at Newmont Mining's Carlin gold mine operation near Elko By A. Ananthalakshmi SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Gold slipped on Monday due to a stronger dollar but was supported near $1,300 an ounce as its safe-haven appeal rose due to heightened tensions between the West and Russia, and violence in the Middle East. Trading during Asian hours was thin as investors were eyeing the Federal Reserve's policy meet and major U.S. data releases later in the week to gauge the strength of the economy and the outlook for the central bank's monetary policy. Spot gold dipped 0.2 percent to $1,304.60 per ounce by 0632 GMT, largely holding the previous session's 1.1 percent gain. "The key test will be later in the week when we get jobs data and possible comments from the Fed on U.S. interest rates." A string of recent strong economic data has increased speculation that the Fed will hike interest rates sooner than expected.

As U.S. kicks off crude exports, Iran casts a shadow in Asia

Rouhani addresses the audience during a meeting in Ankara By Florence Tan SINGAPORE (Reuters) - The United States faces an awkward rival in its first attempts in 40 years to export crude oil - Iran. Iran, whose economy has been throttled by Western sanctions that have halved its crude shipments, is now selling higher quality and cheaper oil to China that leaves little room for the U.S. crude to enter the world's top energy consumer. While buyers in Japan and South Korea have been willing to trial a U.S. grade of the super-light crude known as condensate, China has already locked in annual contracts with Tehran and is not expected to take any U.S. oil in the short-term. With U.S. producers looking to open a trade route to sell surplus condensate from the U.S. shale boom, worries about quality and legal issues have added to doubts about how much of the oil the rest of Asia can take.
