The logo of the European Central Bank (ECB) is pictured outside its headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany, April 26, 2018. However Makhlouf, Ireland's central bank chief, said fears of excessive euro zone inflation are overstated "at the moment" and that notwithstanding the "considerable uncertainty" about the persistence of price pressures, the current pick-up is transitory. Some of us do believe that at the moment the forecast of reaching inflation of 1.5% in 2023 is too low," Makhlouf told an online conference. Makhlouf told the conference a number of times that if policymakers think and see evidence that inflation is going to go above its target, they will respond. Makhlouf said that with the correct monetary and fiscal policies in place, a sufficiently strong demand-driven recovery should see inflation return to 2% over the medium-term.

Makhlouf, Ireland's central bank chief, said he expected the current pick-up in inflation to be transitory, and that there was a lot of evidence to back that up. However he said the central bank needed to be "vigilant to the risks". "I believe that, at the moment, fears of excessive euro area inflation are overstated and that the current price pressures reflect transitory factors that will fade out over time," Makhlouf told an online conference.

KCNA via REUTERSSEOUL, Sept 17 (Reuters) - North Korea's state media accused the United States on Friday of double standards over military activities and pursuing a hostile policy towards Pyongyang that was hampering the restart of talks on the country's nuclear weapons and missile programmes. The commentary comes after North Korea and South Korea both test fired ballistic missiles on Wednesday, the latest move in an arms race in which both nations have been developing increasingly sophisticated weapons. He said Washington was to blame for the stand-off preventing the restart of talks aimed at dismantling North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile arsenals in return for sanctions relief.

Facebook and Ray-Ban?s first smart glasses which launched on September 9, 2021 are seen in a handout image. Ireland's Data Privacy Commissioner (DPC) is the lead regulator of Facebook under the European Union's strict data privacy laws as the firm's European headquarters are based in Dublin. Facebook smart glasses, which were created in partnership with Ray-Ban maker EssilorLuxottica (ESLX.PA), allow wearers to listen to music, take calls or capture photos and short videos and share them across Facebook's services using a companion app. "With the glasses, there is a very small indicator light that comes on when recording is occurring. The Irish regulator said it shares the concerns of the Italian Data Protection Regulator, the Garante, which asked Facebook for clarifications on Sept. 10 to assess the smart glasses for compliance with privacy laws.

REUTERS/Mustafa AndalebMOSCOW, Sept 16 (Reuters) - Members of a Russia-led security bloc that includes some countries adjacent or close to Afghanistan have no plans to host Afghan refugees amid the political and security crisis in the country, bloc member Kazakhstan said on Thursday. The Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO) includes three Central Asian nations - Tajikistan, which has a lengthy border with Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan - as well as several more remote former Soviet republics. Two more Central Asian nations, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, border Afghanistan but are not CSTO members. However, Uzbekistan has also said it would only allow short-term transit of refugees by planes to third countries.

LIVNO, Bosnia, Sept 15 (Reuters) - Wild horses galloping across rugged mountains in western Bosnia are an ever-bigger tourist attraction, but need protection from local farmers who see them as pests, activists say. In recent years, enterprising enthusiasts have begun organising photo-safari tours for tourists in the mountains above the town of Livno. But the city authorities are once again considering protecting the animals, which they now see as more of an asset than a liability. Cattle breeder Benjamin Varupa doubts a solution can be found to reconcile conflicting interests of farmers and horses. "The horses may disappear and so may we, the farmers."

OIL AND GASPetroleum policy presents perhaps the biggest challenge for the next prime minister, and the future of Norway’s largest industry has been front and centre of the campaign. Solberg is unlikely to accept that goal if she wins, but must find ways to satisfy her party’s junior partner. But Stoere’s own party is wary of the job losses that could follow, and its other likely partner, the Centre Party, favours continued drilling. At stake is Norway’s membership in the European Economic Area (EEA) treaty, strongly favoured by both Labour and the Conservatives but opposed by the euro-sceptic Centre Party, the Socialist Left and the Reds. If the centre-left wins, Stoere has promised tax relief for low- and middle-income families and hikes for the top 20% of incomes.

LONDON, Sept 12 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will this week set out his plans to manage the COVID-19 pandemic in the winter months, announcing a decision to scrap the introduction of vaccine passports and steps to end some emergency powers. read moreSpeaking to broadcasters, Health Minister Sajid Javid said he did not anticipate more lockdowns and that the vaccine passports would not be introduced in England, as the government depends instead on vaccines and testing to defend the public. He told the BBC he was not "anticipating any more lockdowns" but would not take the measure off the table, that the government would not go ahead with vaccine passports to allow people to attend mass events and he wanted to "get rid of" PCR tests for travellers as soon as possible. Javid added the government would remain "cautious", but "the vaccine programme, our testing programme, our surveillance programme, the new treatments ... this is all our wall of defence and whilst there's a lot of virus around, it is working".

The three candidates for Norway's prime minister Erna Solberg from the Conservatives, Jonas Gahr Stoere from Labour Party and Trygve Slagsvold Vedum from the Centre Party attend a debate in central Oslo, Norway August 9, 2021. Opinion polls show the opposition Labour party on course to replace the Conservative-led coalition of Prime Minister Erna Solberg, though Labour would need support from at least two more parties to secure a parliamentary majority. "We must have a society with fewer differences, which have increased with the past government," Stoere told Reuters on the sidelines of a recent campaign event. Opinion polls show Stoere could become dependent on either the Red Party, which wants social reforms based on Marxist ideology, or the Green Party, which wants to shut down Norway's oil production by 2035.

Sturgeon said that initial decision should be reassessed against the background of more ambitious climate change targets.
