flu death, Yetliberal-minded analysts are willing to give China the benefit of the doubt They believe thatgiven the right incentivessuch as the economic benefits of globalisationChina will behave responsibly and become a stakeholder in the existing international order This debate remained inconclusive until about three years ago Partisans on both sides could marshal sufficient evidence to buttress their arguments Howeveras Chinese foreign policy began to grow more assertiveparticularly on territorial disputesrealists who insisted that China would behave like a traditional great power gained greater credibility With the most recent escalation of tensions between China and Japan over the ownership of a group of small uninhabited islands in the East China Seathere is little doubt that advocates of Chinas peaceful rise are losing the debate What makes the latest round of escalations special is the way Beijing chose to challenge Japans sovereignty claims over the Senkaku Islandsas Japan calls them (they are called the Diaoyu in China) To be surethis particular dispute began in 1972when the United States handed over administrative authority (but not legal ownership) to Japan For four decadesChina and Japan had adhered to a tacit agreement over the status of the islands: Japan would retain administrative control and claim sovereigntyand China would contest the sovereignty but not challenge Japans administrative control This understanding broke down in late 2012 when Tokyo was forced to nationalise the islands in order to prevent an extremist right-wing leader from purchasing some of the islands from their private ownersa development the Japanese government thought would lead to a confrontation with Beijing Little did Tokyo realise that Beijing would regard its movehowever well-intentionedas a step tantamount to formally establishing sovereignty claims over the islands As part of its responseBeijing has gradually escalated After repeatedly sending ships and planes into the territorial waters and airspace of the islands to challenge Japanese claims of exclusive administrative controlthe Chinese government took the fateful stepon November 23of announcing its East China Sea Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ) Even though sovereign nations are not prohibited by international law to set up ADIZsand more than a dozen countries have done so (including Japan and the US)Chinas ADIZ in the East China Sea overlaps with those of Japan and South Korea Most alarminglyit also covers the airspace over the disputed islands Beijings intentions are crystal clear By setting up an overlapping ADIZ over the disputed islandsit has mounted a legal challenge to Tokyos claims of administrative control Under the rules announced by Beijingall aircraft flying through Chinas ADIZ must communicate their flight plans and identify themselves to the Chinese militarywhich will enforce the ADIZ ObviouslyBeijing views compliance with these rules as recognition of Chinas legal control over the airspace over the islands andby implicationthe islands themselves Beijings escalation has infuriated Tokyowhich promptly announced that it would not recognise Chinas ADIZand instructed its civilian airlines not to comply with Chinas rules Japan also openly challenged China by sending military aircraft through Chinas ADIZ without notifying the Chinese military (South Korea has also dispatched military jets into the Chinese ADIZ) Caught in the middle is the USa treaty ally of Japan Eager to show solidarity with Japan but reluctant to allow the dispute to escalate furtherWashington has opted for a middle course It has flatly rejected Chinas new ADIZ and sent two unarmed B-52s through the Chinese ADIZ almost immediately after Beijings announcement Howeverto avoid potential catastrophic accidents in the zonethe US government has also advised its civilian airlines to comply with the Chinese ADIZ By pure coincidencethe ADIZ controversy occurred right before US Vice President Joseph Bidens scheduled visit to JapanChina and South Korea Judging by the announcements following Bidens stops in Tokyo and Beijingit seems that he has achieved only modest accomplishments in trying to calm the troubled waters in the East China Sea While he managed to reassure Japan of Americas unwavering support and criticised Chinas escalationhe treaded carefully in Beijing and avoided directly challenging Chinas decision by asking top Chinese leaders to rescind its ADIZ All this leaves the troubling impression that China has got away with a tactical move that changed the status quo over a longstanding dispute Observers are worried about three consequences FirstBeijings attempts to enforce the ADIZ in future could result in accidental military clashes with Japanese and US military aircraft in the zonethus starting a conflict no one really wants Similar attempts could also lead to aviation disasters similar to the infamous KAL 007 incident (when a Soviet MiG shot down a South Korean jumbo jet in 1983) Secondencouraged by this precedentChina could set up a similar ADIZ in the South China Seausing the same tactic to assert its maritime claims Thirdemboldened by the lack of a unified response from the international community to its unilateral moveChina might be tempted to flex its muscles even more recklessly in future Of coursethese are all valid concerns But they overlook one important aspect of the Chinese ADIZ controversy The ultimate question to ask is whether China gains or loses more in this case Tacticallywe must concede that Beijings move is brilliant: it is controversialbut not illegal Its new ADIZ should help China achieve its objective of contesting Japans sovereignty claims through clever legal manoeuvres But strategicallywe would find it hard to deny that Beijing has lost more It has not only succeeded in demolishing any lingering hope that Chinas rise could be peacefulbut also pushed Asian nationsbound by their fear of an assertive Chinacloser to each other and to America If Chinese leaders are truly farsightedone has to wonder whether this is their desired outcome The

Bhattacharjee | Published: March 25 2013 12:36 am Related News Bihar chief Minister Nitish Kumar has made the demand for granting his state a special category state into a significant cause He has good reasons but if one were to analyse the absorptive capacity of the state of investmentshe could be far more realistic in his appraisal For poor states like Bihar a larger cache of money does not help in pushing investment up to a higher stage A good instance of this is the state-wise credit deposit ratio culled from the Reserve Bank of India records The ratio broadly measures the percentage of loans given out by banks from the deposits it earns In ratio for Bihar as per latest RBI data is 2912 For India the ratio is 7809 as on March 2012 Money is available in Biharbut the bankers obviously find little takers for the credit they can make available Investment opportunities in the state are few and so the sum is being siphoned off to other states Which are the states that lead the national average These are states like Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradeshwhere the ratios are above 100 per cent But there are also states like Rajasthan and Punjab up northwhich do well But let us compare Bihar with states which enjoy special category status None of these states have credit deposit ratios that are different from Bihar Uttarakhand is at 356Assam at 3732 and the others are worse off After decades of Central support through zero interest plan fund they have still not been able to reach any where close to the national average This means that while the states had the money to make public sector investments at low cost it has not helped them to create an enabling climate to attract private sector investments The spur for greater investments it would seem comes from the hard work the states themselves put in like trained labourland for investment and a reasonably secure power supply Bihar is yet to create these advantages On the other hand as the RBI data shows the state enjoys a far larger branch network than the special category states; the numbers are better than many main line states Punjab has 4132 brick and mortar branchwhere Bihar has 4503 But next door neighbour Orissa with a far smaller branch network records a more impressive utilisation of bank funds Its ratio is 469 and the results are showing Banks in Bihar rake in more deposits but find far less avenues to invest them in The conclusion is obvious Bihar needs to harness its own growth potential instead of looking out for the elusive Central support Subhomoy is a Deputy Editor based in New

is needed before the H5N1 research moratorium can be lifted National Institute of Health NEW YORK NEW YORK—A voluntary moratorium on potentially dangerous experiments aimed at understanding highly virulent strains of the H5N1 influenza virus should continue for the time being National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Anthony Fauci told a meeting of flu scientists here But he added scientists should redouble their efforts to engage with the larger public to gain support for the vital but risky work "The flu scientific community can no longer be the only player in the discussion about this research" Fauci said "You will unquestionably lose the battle for public support for your research if you ignore this issue" Fauci remarks delivered at the annual meeting of the NIAID’s influenza research centers of excellence also echoed a call for openness and transparency he made in June in the pages of Science published by AAAS which also publishes ScienceInsider The moratorium announced by 39 scientists this past January came amidst controversy over publishing two studies that described how researchers made H5N1 more transmissible between mammals—possibly setting the stage for a flu pandemic After a lengthy review the US National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB) ultimately recommended that the US government allow full publication of both studies One by a team led by Yoshihiro Kawaoka—who has a joint appointment at the University of Tokyo and the University of Wisconsin Madison—was published by Nature The other from a team led by Ron Fouchier of Erasmus MC in Rotterdam the Netherlands was published by Science What to do about the moratorium however has been the subject of controversy It was originally supposed to last just 60 days but it was later extended indefinitely In April Fauci — who is not a signatory to the moratorium but leads a major flu research funding agency and encouraged scientists to adopt the pause in a bid to calm public fears—told a US Senate committee that the moratorium should continue pending further discussion In June he said the research community still had "a lot of homework to do … and some boxes to check" before the moratorium could be lifted including agreeing on what types of flu research were worth the risks In today’s remarks Fauci highlighted one particularly sensitive research area: so-called "gain-of-function" experiments that allow scientists to create and study flu viruses that are more pathogenic than those found in nature A key argument for doing such experiments he noted is that they allow scientists to understand how a virus might evolve in the future "There is a real and present danger of the natural evolution of the virus and that is why you do the experiments that might appear to be risky in the eyes of some" he said "You do the experiments so we can stay ahead of the naturally evolving risk" Many critics however have questioned whether such experiments are really useful and whether scientists can safely contain potentially dangerous new pathogens "The world sees it differently" Fauci said "and they ask the question … namely: Should these experiments should have been performed and/or published in the first place" Scientists he said often "answer that the benefit outweighs the risk … However it is essential we respect the concern of the public domestically or globally and not ask them to take the word of the influenza scientist" Along with concerns about bioterrorists using published papers to guide deliberate efforts to stoke a pandemic Fauci said he worried about "unregulated" laboratories perhaps outside of the United States doing work "sloppily" and leading to an inadvertent pandemic "Accidental release is what the world is really worried about" he said To address such concerns Fauci counseled more dialogue and patience Before lifting the moratorium scientists need to take more time to share information with the public and discuss the tradeoffs inherent in influenza research he said perhaps through international workshops and meetings Not taking such steps he said would be counterproductive "If we without having this broader input say ‘Let’s lift the moratorium’ the consequences of that would make it more difficult to get back on the track of doing this research" he said Fauci also suggested that there are plenty of potentially important H5N1 experiments that aren’t covered by the moratorium Allowable experiments for instance could test the assumption that an influenza virus infecting a small mammal such as a ferret could also infect a monkey Or he said researchers could start more studies to answer questions about how the immune system responds to the virus "The game has changed for pandemic flu scientists and the agencies that support them" he said NIAID the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Health and Human Services "cannot recommend or go along with the lifting of the moratorium … as long as the questions that I have just mentioned and brought up remained unanswered" That stance got a predictably mixed review from members of the audience which included both supporters and opponents of lifting the moratorium But several scientists publicly thanked the NIAID director for his frank comments "I think [Fauci] articulated the case for continuing the moratorium today better than the case for continuing the moratorium had been articulated previously and that’s important" virologist Nancy Cox of the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta told ScienceInsider after Fauci’s session She was among the original moratorium signers During the session she also said that "there needs to be a better explanation of what kinds of work on H5N1 can continue under the moratorium and what can’t" Fouchier for one told Fauci that it was time for the moratorium to end "I think we have done what we can do about accidental release" he said "Accidental release outside of US cannot be addressed by regulation" he noted adding that some of the signers of the moratorium don’t receive US funds He also pointed out that labs around the world already have dangerous pathogens on hand including hundreds with samples of the 1957 H2N2 pandemic virus "If that virus [gets released] it will kill 1 to 2 million people" he said suggesting that the infectious disease community has shown it can work with dangerous pathogens responsibly Fauci’s response to Fouchier: Share that argument with the public What Fouchier said "doesn’t get the transparent airing it deserves" Fauci said "That argument you made has to be made in a forum that people can understand what you are saying" By the end of the hour-long session it appeared that researchers were no closer to resolving when—or if—the moratorium should end "If there is disagreement among the people in this room how is a decision going to be taken" asked virologist Adolfo García Sastre of the Mt Sinai School of Medicine in New York City Fauci said that the detailed guidelines it is developing for universities and other institutions to conduct potentially risky dual use research of concern (DURC) will help spell out an answer As part of his talk he shared the US government’s progress on the DURC guidelines which have been shaped by a new yet-to-be-named interagency committee that includes National Institutes of Health officials The group has been meeting to craft the rules and Fauci expects them to be released "reasonably soon" Upon their release Fauci says he hopes they will be subject to public comment and receive input from an international consultative conference The guidelines now cover 15 pathogens and "likely will be modified in the future to include more than the 15" In the past Fauci has said the release of the guidelines would be necessary before he would support lifting the H5N1 research moratorium” McCartney said, download Indian Express App More Related NewsImage via Wikipedia House
