    ASIA - EU

    Asian markets drop after euphoria over Spain cools and fears for Italy and Greece emerge



    Stock markets drop to almost 1%. Lack of commitment on growth. For China aid to Spain contain short-term crisis, but no safeguard to stability. On 17 June, Greece votes for or against the euro.

    Hong Kong (AsiaNews) - The Asian markets have opened almost all dropping 1%, after the mild euphoria of yesterday, in the hope that the loans of 100 billion euros to Spain would mark a beginning of solution to European debt.

    But yesterday, the Spanish treasury bonds rose by 6.5% and Italy's 10 year bonds went to 6.032%.

    Today, the Nikkei fell below 1%, that of Shanghai and Hong Kong by 0.8, 0.9 Seoul. All shares of companies that trade with Europe declined about 2%.

    The fears of analysts is that the European crisis will continue to spread and that the Union is doing much to lend money to banks, but little for growth. Yesterday stock markets in the U.S. and Europe also took hits.

    Adding to uncertainty is the June 17 vote in Greece, after inconclusive election last May 6, unable to produce a government to direct the country under an austerity regime following the dictates of the EU. The next Greek elections seem to be characterized by the decision of whether to stay in or exit from the euro.

    China, which Europe has recently asked for financial support, but to no avail, said that the EU's move to aid Spain serves to curb the crisis in the short term, but more decisive steps are needed to protect a more continuous stability .

    LEBANON – MIDDLE EAST – VATICAN
    For Eastern Catholic patriarchs, the genocide of Christians is an affront to all humanity

    Fady Noun

    Afflicted by wars, emigration and insecurity, Christian communities have now become "a small flock" amid the indifference of the international community. Patriarchs appeal to Pope Francis and the international community. Catholics and Orthodox share the same problems. The end of Christians in the East would be "a shameful stigma for the whole 21st century".


    KOREA
    Korean Bishops say no to “unreasonable provocations', call for a stop to the nuclear escalation by working for the “coexistence of humanity”



    Korean bishops issued an Exhortation today on the rising tensions around the Korean peninsula. North Korea but also "neighbouring countries" are at risk of "hasty unrestrained action" that could lead to the "death of innumerable people" and "deep wounds for the whole of humanity." They call for reduced military budgets and more spending on human and cultural development. They urge using "conscience, intelligence, solidarity, piety and mutual respect". A prayer is set for the feast day of the Assumption, which is also Korean Independence Day.
