Trade : WTO DG's assertions about MC12 flying from facts? (PRIV)
(D. Ravi Kanth, Geneva)
Several comments made by the World Trade Organization's Director-General, Ms Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, at an informal Heads of Delegation (HoD) meeting on 7 July, seem to "fly from facts", particularly her assertion that the "conclusion" of the Fisheries Subsidies Agreement "marks the first Sustainable Development Goal target that has been fulfilled - 14.6."

Mideast : A new peace plan - confederation of Israel, Palestine & Jordan (PRIV)
(IPS, New York)
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which dates back to the mid-1940s, is one of the longest military confrontations defying a permanent solution - even as it continues to be on the agenda of the United Nations whose primary mandate is the maintenance of international peace and security.

Labour : Hundreds of millions of human workers treated worse than robots (PRIV)
(IPS, Madrid)
