The meetings of the working group started on Wednesday after an inconclusive meeting of foreign ministers from Britain, Greece and Turkey in Geneva last week. Cyprus's two main ethnic groups have lived divided since a Turkish invasion in 1974 triggered by a brief Greek inspired coup. The conflict on the former British colony spans decades and is a key source of tension between Greece and Turkey, which have come to the brink of war over the east Mediterranean island in the past.

Eadon Green’s retro-styled Black Cuillin coupé will be revealed at the Geneva motor show in March The Eadon Green Black Cuillin will be revealed at the Geneva motor show in March, as a rival to Morgan . Read more about the cars heading to this year's Geneva show Eadon Green has only revealed a line-drawing preview image of the Black Cuillin coupé, which takes retro styling of a similar era to Morgan’s offerings. The image doesn't show enough to determine whether it's more like Morgan's traditional Plus models, or a modern iteration similar to the Aero cars. The Black Cuillan, named after a mountain range on the Isle of Skye off the Scottish coast, will be revealed at the show, although Eadon Green promises more details in the weeks leading up to the show. The company, which plays on the name of the company’s managing director and founder, Felix Eaton, is based in Shoreditch, London, and was set up in late 2016.

Recent patent filings suggest the PSA Group is pushing its E-Tense supercar closer to production The DS E-Tense supercar has taken another step towards making production, patent files have revealed. DS has this week filed a trademark for the E-Tense name, further suggesting that the dramatic supercar concept of last year’s Geneva motor show could make production. The luxury arm of PSA Group – also parent company to Peugeot and Citroën – has been toying with the idea of its own supercar as a halo model since the car’s warm reception in Geneva, in addition to a new SUV . Unusually, however, a trademark for the SUV hasnt yet been filed, despite the model’s expected production debut late this year. We wont be seeing the E-Tense in production form until after 2018 when the SUV is due to go on sale, and it could come as late as 2021, with all-wheel drive and a 402bhp electric powertrain.

Many people are very concerned about that. But for me, this issue is about violations of Kashmiri people and the human rights and civil liberties. That is the most important thing. Also the violation of the Geneva Convention by the Indian armed forces.

In July 2007, under pressure from a series of torture and mistreatment scandals involving detainees, President Bush issued an executive order that CIA detainees would be covered by the Geneva Conventions . President Obama subsequently issued an executive order revoking all of the Bush administration orders relating to the interrogation of detainees and prohibiting waterboarding. Under pressure As far as we know, Trump’s position on torture has not changed. In an interview with The New York Times , he said his defence secretary nominee, General James M Mattis, surprised him by coming out against torture. Still, Trump explained, “I’m not saying it changed my mind. Look, we have people that are chopping off heads and drowning people in steel cages and we’re not allowed to waterboard.” Of course, just because a president supports a policy does not mean he will be able to implement it.

A well-placed insider revealed Porsche’s plans for its Motorsport division – which is responsible for its hardcore road-going models as well as the competition cars – and the headlines include the return of the manual transmission and the most powerful production 911 to date.
