  • Ex-model can seek divorce payout from Saudi sheikh in UK: court

    A former model who was married to a wealthy Saudi sheikh won the right to seek a payout from him in London, after a court rejected Monday his claim to have diplomatic immunity. Christina Estrada, 53, who has appeared in the Pirelli calendar and was once linked to Britain's Prince Andrew, will be able to seek a share of Sheikh Walid Juffali's estimated £4 billion (five billion euro, $5.7 billion) fortune. Juffali had argued that his status since 2014 as permanent representative for Saint Lucia to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) meant he was immune from a claim.

  • Disputes over South China Sea must not involve 'bullying': White House:

    By Matt Spetalnick and Jeff Mason WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will deliver a tough message to China during a summit with Southeast Asian countries next week that disputes in the South China Sea must be resolved peacefully and not with a big nation “bullying” smaller neighbors, the White House said on Tuesday. Obama will also address North Korea’s “provocations,” a nuclear test last month and a rocket launch over the weekend, when he hosts the leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in California on Monday and Tuesday, aides said. Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser, said the president will reiterate that territorial disputes over the area, where China and several Southeast Asian states have conflicting and overlapping claims, must be handled through negotiations and consistent with international norms.

  • Oil prices rebound from sharp selloff; more volatility expected

    By Jacob Gronholt-Pedersen SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Crude oil prices pushed higher on Wednesday after Iran said it was open to cooperation with Saudi Arabia, partly recovering from an 8 percent fall in the previous session on concerns over demand and weak equities. Prices were supported by comments from Iran's oil minister that Tehran is ready to negotiate with Saudi Arabia over the current conditions in global oil markets. Meanwhile, the International Energy Agency (IEA) said the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) is unlikely to cut a deal with other producers to reduce ballooning output.

  • GCC debt to double, assets to slide by 2020: report

    Public debt of the oil-rich Gulf states is expected to double and assets decline by a third by 2020 as they seek to finance budget deficits due to sliding prices, a report said Tuesday. After having posted massive deficits of $160 billion last year and faced with a $159 billion deficit in 2016, the six Arab states of the Gulf will have to borrow and tap into their huge fiscal reserves to finance the budget shortfall, said the report released by the head of research at Kuwait Financial Centre (Markaz), M.R.
