Russia has key interests in common with the United States and needs to work with it on a common agenda, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Saturday in a television interview. In his comments to the state-run Rossiya channel, Putin appeared to soften his anti-American rhetoric after being highly critical. Relations between Moscow and Washington and other Western powers have soured over the conflict in Russia's neighbor Ukraine, sinking to an all-time low. More»

U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday called on the new Greek government to enact structural reforms in order to win flexibility over its budget. During a press conference with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Obama praised Italy's economic reforms, saying they were a model for Greece. Obama said that Greece needs to improve its tax collection, reduce its bureaucracy and enact more flexible labor practices. Obama said he told Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in January, after the prime minister was sworn in, that the U.S. would be supportive of "some flexibilities" so Greece can increase investment if the government would show that it is trying to help itself by enacting reforms. Obama did not comment on the tense negotiations underway between Greece and its international creditors over new emergency financing. Obama denied that he was at odds with Germany over European economic woes, calling German Chancellor Angela Merkel a "great friend and a great ally." Obama said global demand is weak and all countries need to enact reforms. "What I've said to the Europeans is 'don't expect that the United States is just going to be the engine [of growth] for everybody,'" Obama said. More»

Police in Australia say they have foiled an Islamic State-inspired plot to carry out an attack at a World War One centenary event. Police arrested five teenage suspects, charging one 18-year-old with conspiring to commit a terrorist act. The men were planning to target police at an Anzac memorial event in Melbourne next week, police said. More»

A suicide bomb blast in Afghanistan's eastern city of Jalalabad killed 33 people and injured more than 100 outside a bank where government workers collect salaries, the city's police chief said on Saturday. Police were investigating whether there was a second explosion after people rushed to the scene to help, the police chief, Fazel Ahmad Sherzad, told a news conference. "It was a suicide attack," Sherzad said, adding that police had yet to determine if the attacker had worn the explosives or had placed them in a car. "It is early to say what kind of suicide bomber." Taliban insurgents denied responsibility, although they have claimed earlier killings in a wave of attacks coinciding with the sharp drawdown of foreign troops. "It was an evil act. We strongly condemn it," the Islamist militants' spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, told Reuters. For the first time since the hardline Islamist Taliban movement was ousted from power in 2001, Afghan forces are fighting with little support from NATO troops. NATO, which at its peak had 130,000 soldiers in Afghanistan, has only a few thousand left, involved mainly in training and special operations. Police said a third blast that shook Jalalabad was a controlled detonation after experts discovered another bomb close to the scene of the first explosion. More»

Less than a week after announcing his 2016 campaign for president, Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida doesn't need to worry about money. It's as good as in the bank. "Marco Rubio will have the resources necessary to run a first-class campaign, that’s already been determined," said billionaire Florida auto dealer Norman Braman, a former Jeb Bush supporter who is now one of Rubio's highest-silhouette donors. Annandale Capital founder George Seay, who is hosting a Rubio fundraiser with the moneyed Dallas elite at his 7,000-square-foot, seven-bath home on Tuesday, said: "Marco has had zero trouble raising money." At least seven other Rubio mega donors say their candidate has already received monetary commitments in excess of the $40 million he will likely need to battle through a presidential primary season that will feature a crowd of seasoned Republican candidates with strong financial backing. Rubio’s whirlwind money-raising comes after a network of Senator Ted Cruz super PACs raked in $31 million following Cruz's announcement in March that he was seeking the Republican presidential nomination.

U.S. consumer prices increased for a second straight month in March on rising gasoline and housing costs, a sign of an uptick in inflation that should keep the Federal Reserve on course to start raising interest rates this year. March's broad-based price gains bolster the U.S. central bank's long-held view that inflation will gradually move toward its 2 percent target as the dampening effect of lower energy prices fades. "The data should allay the disinflation concerns that predominated earlier this year and, on the margin, increase the Fed's confidence that inflation will eventually move toward its target," said Michelle Girard, chief economist at RBS in Stamford, Connecticut. The Labor Department said on Friday its Consumer Price Index increased 0.2 percent last month after a similar gain in February. In the 12 months through March, the CPI slipped 0.1 percent after being unchanged in February. The so-called core CPI, which strips out food and energy costs, increased 0.2 percent in March after a similar rise in February. In the 12 months through March, the core CPI rose 1.8 percent, the largest increase since October. More»

Greece will need to tap all the remaining cash reserves across its public sector -- a total of 2 billion euros ($2.16 billion) -- to pay civil service wages and pensions at the end of the month, according to finance ministry officials. Barring a last-ditch deal with its creditors, that is likely to leave no money to repay the International Monetary Fund almost 1 billion euros due in the first half of May, although Greece has said it wants to honor its debt obligations. Athens' scramble for basic funds shows how extreme the financial constraints on Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras have become as he tries to convince skeptical foreign creditors to extend his country new financial aid.

Economic analysts are expecting eurozone inflation to reach even lower levels this year than previously forecast, before gradually picking up in coming years in response to ECB policy measures and exchange rate moves, a report published Thursday showed. The European Central Bank's Survey of Professional of Forecasters, a quarterly poll of analysts not representing the views of ECB staff, said that inflation in the 19-country currency bloc would only be 0.1% this year, a reduction of 0.2 percentage point compared with the forecast made in January. Inflation, however, is due to pick up more speed in future years, the forecasters said. They now see inflation next year at 1.2%, compared with the 1.1% expected in January, while for 2017 they forecast an inflation rate of 1.6%, compared with a previous projection of 1.5%. "Respondents reported that the downward revision for 2015 mainly reflected lower oil prices, whereas monetary policy measures and exchange rate developments have resulted in upward revisions for 2016 and 2017," said the ECB. Over a longer-term horizon, inflation is seen at 1.8%, matching January's estimate. However, when taken out to a second decimal point, the longer-term expectation is slightly higher now than previously, coming in at 1.84% versus 1.77% seen in January. The rise in inflation expectations will come as encouraging news for the central bank, suggesting that its commitment to pump over EUR1 trillion ($1.1 trillion) into the eurozone economy until next September is convincing firms and households that prices will start to rise soon. The most recent data showed inflation at minus 0.1% in annual terms in March, its fourth straight month in negative territory. The ECB targets inflation at just below 2% over the medium term. More»

Top Russian officials accused the United States on Thursday of seeking political and military dominance in the world and sought to put blame on the West for international security crises, including the conflict in east Ukraine. Evoking Cold War-style rhetoric, Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said a drive by the United States and its allies to bring Kiev closer to the West was a threat to Moscow and had forced it to react. "The United States and its allies have crossed all possible lines in their drive to bring Kiev into their orbit. That could not have failed to trigger our reaction," he told an annual security conference in Moscow. More»

Russian President Vladimir Putin says the West must respect Russia's interests if it wants to normalize diplomatic relations. Putin said Thursday during a televised call-in show that the United States "doesn't need allies, they only need vassals." He said Russia would never accept that role and urged the West to take Russian interests into account. More»
