The visits to these three countries were put off due to the King’s “domestic engagements”.The Monarch is accompanied by a business delegation that will also take part in a Jordanian Investment Forum in Brasilia.

Arriving from Slovenia with the Duke of Edinburgh and Foreign Secretary David Miliband, the Queen was presented with a gift of salt and bread by a couple dressed in national costume.
At the presidential palace in Bratislava, she accompanied President Ivan Gasparovic on an inspection of an 80-strong guard of honour.Dressed in a cherry red outfit the Queen brightened up the dull October weather as she was given a military salute with the soldiers shouting "glory" before she embarked on a short walkabout in the capital's main square.Despite rainy conditions, thousands of well-wishers came out to catch a glimpse of the visiting royals.The Queen was sheltered from the wind and wet weather under a transparent umbrella while the Duke followed behind in a mac.They were treated to a colourful and noisy display of traditional Slovak folk dancing before being ushered inside the governor's palace.The Queen is due to meet Nobel Peace Prize nominee Sir Nicholas Winton – known as "Britain's Schindler" – on her visit along with some of the 670 Jewish children from Czechoslovakia whom he rescued before World War II.The 99-year-old saved them by transporting them back to Britain. He made the trip to Slovakia especially to meet the Queen near the border where he smuggled the children to safety.A rowdy pack of local and UK photographers surrounded the Queen and the Duke as they attempted to watch the dancers.

L'ex-roi du Népal menacé d'être privé d'électricité s'il ne paie pas ses arriérés de factures 24/10/2008

L'ex-roi du Népal Gyanendra, déposé en mai, risque de se faire couper le courant électrique dans sa résidence de Katmandou s'il ne paie pas près d'un million de dollars de factures accumulées depuis 2005, a annoncé jeudi la compagnie nationale d'électricité."La famille royale doit 980.000 dollars et nous cesserons la fourniture de courant d'ici 15 jours si les arriérés ne sont pas réglés", a indiqué à l'AFP Arjun Bahadur Karki, directeur général de l'agence d'électricité du Népal.Gyanendra Shah a perdu sa couronne le 28 mai dernier par l'abolition d'une monarchie vieille de 240 ans et la proclamation d'une République dirigée par des maoïstes. Il vit depuis dans un pavillon cossu de la banlieue de Katmandou.Les sommes représentent les factures des 22 palais du pays, dont la plupart viennent d'être nationalisés, et se sont accumulées depuis février 2005 lorsque Gyanendra avait chassé le gouvernement et pris des pouvoirs absolus, a dit le responsable.Les soeurs, les filles et les cousins de Gyanendra sont également concernés, a précisé M. Karki, déplorant que malgré "l'envoi de rappels, personne n'ait répondu".L'imposant palais Narayanhiti de l'ex-monarque, en plein coeur de Katmandou, a été transformé en musée national et est aussi menacé par une coupure de courant.Le Népal est dirigé depuis fin août par un gouvernement de coalition conduit par l'ancien chef de la rébellion maoïste devenu Premier ministre, Prachanda alias "le Redoutable", grâce à la victoire de son parti d'extrême gauche à l'élection d'une assemblée constituante en avril.Les maoïstes et tous les autres partis politiques népalais s'étaient alliés au printemps 2006 dans des manifestations démocratiques contre Gyanendra. Ils avaient ensuite signé un accord de paix en novembre 2006, mettant fin à dix ans de guerre civile.

Jordan and Brazil on Thursday signed 11 deals to enhance economic, cultural and political cooperation between the two countries.The agreements were concluded during a visit by His Majesty King Abdullah to Brasilia in the last leg of a Latin American tour, where he and President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva discussed means to activate cooperation, especially in the economic field.The King met first one-on-one with Lula da Silva before an expanded meeting between officials from both sides.The King said there is a huge potential for stronger strategic ties between the two countries.The two leaders later attended the signing of the agreements, which covered cooperation in the fields of trade and economy, science and technology, tourism, education and culture, among others.King Abdullah underlined prospects of obtaining Brazilian assistance in oil shale extraction as an alternative source of energy for Jordan, which has vast deposits of this resource.He also highlighted the significance of the Arab community in Brazil, whose population stands at around 12 million and their role in achieving better ties between the Middle East and Latin America.In remarks at a lunch banquet the president held in honour of the King, Her Majesty Queen Rania and the accompanying delegation, His Majesty said: “But despite these challenges, our countries can progress on the path forward... by forging partnerships to build a better future”.“Jordan has been a consistent advocate for Middle East development and reform, including economic integration. And beyond the Middle East, we have worked to create a worldwide network of economic partners and friends of peace. We look to Brazil as a leader and model of progress.”The King voiced appreciation for Brazil, which hosted three years ago the first Arab-South American summit, for the support it extended to Jordan in its cooperation with MERCOSUR, a regional trade agreement between Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay. The Kingdom has signed a framework agreement with the bloc, whose total GDP constitutes 75 per cent of that of the entire continent.King Abdullah also highlighted Brazil’s stand as a “long-time supporter of justice for Palestinians, and you have taken an active role both in responding to the humanitarian crisis and in supporting a two-state settlement” of the Mideast conflict.In a joint communiqué following the King’s meeting with Lula da Silva, the two sides expressed their commitment to strengthening the relations between the two countries in all spheres.
