Keen on manufacturing F-16V fighter jets in India: Lockheed
Lockheed Martin sees decades of business opportunities to make the latest and most advanced 4th generation multi-role F-16V fighter jets in India for its air force and exports, a top official of the American defence firm said today. The F-16V, where the V suffix is for its Viper nickname, is claimed by the company to be the latest and most advanced combat-proven jet of the family in the market. "If selected, we expect the production of F-16V from India to go on for decades. There are opportunities out there for delivering F-16s," Joe LaMarca, vice president of Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company said here.

Bangladesh on edge before court verdict in Zia graft case
Bangladesh braced for possible unrest ahead of a court verdict in the corruption trial of former prime minister and opposition BNP chief Khaleda Zia amid escalating tensions. The Dhaka Metropolitan Police had issued a special notice prohibiting any form of public gathering from 4 AM tomorrow, the day of the verdict, until further orders.

China warns against military intervention in Maldives
China today warned against any military intervention in the Maldives, saying such a move would further complicate the situation, amid repeated calls for India's military intervention by exiled former Maldivian president Mohamed Nasheed to resolve the political crisis. The picturesque Indian Ocean archipelago plunged into a political chaos last week when the country's Supreme Court ordered the release of nine high-profile political prisoners, including Nasheed, maintaining that their trials were "politically motivated and flawed".  Nasheed, who is currently in exile in Sri Lanka, had yesterday tweeted that India should send an envoy, backed by its military, to release judges and leaders of political parties detained by President Abdulla Yameen. Asked how the situation could be resolved internally Geng said China's stand is that relevant parties should find a solution internally.
