RHODES Jake Dotchin Womens Jersey , Greece, Oct. 10 (Xinhua) -- The World Public Forum "Dialogue of Civilisations" (Rhodes Forum) that has been held in the Greek island of Rhodes over the past decade building communication bridges across the globe, launches a new think tank to further contribute to the exchange of views for economic development and conflict resolution.

The announcement was made on Saturday during a press conference at the 13th Rhodes Forum by Vladimir Yakunin, president and co-founder of World Public Forum.

"Our organisation is about to embark on a period of major change and development. Having dedicated the last 13 years to promoting dialogue between different civilisations in the broadest sense, I now want to use this base to create a world class think thank that will make practical policy recommendations Braydon Coburn Womens Jersey ," Yakunin said.

The new research institute will focus on infrastructure as a possible basis for new economic development and conflict prevention, delivering the results of studies to the interested parties in real politics, NGOs and state organizations worldwide, he explained.

The Russian public thinker noted that the Forum concentrated in recent years on the Trans Eurasian Development zone and China's Silk Road initiative as two characteristic examples of this new economic development model.

The two projects are not contradictory, but could be developed together to benefit not only Russia or China but the entire international community Yanni Gourde Womens Jersey , he told Xinhua.

As more than 350 delegates from 50 countries were still debating the most pressing issues of today's world, Yakunin underlined the significance of the role of dialogue to awaken the conscience of civil societies in efforts to tackle crises, such the conflict in Syria and the refugee crisis.

Since on government level it seems very difficult to withdraw previously made statements and lose face, civil societies can be of help, by building bridges Ryan Callahan Womens Jersey , he told Xinhua.

Regarding the refugee crisis, Yakunin stressed that Europe was apparently not ready to deal with the influx.

He called for imminent measures to assist refugees fleeing war zones to reach safety without having to pay small fortunes to smugglers.

He also urged major powers to concentrate efforts on settling together the question of terrorism and provide people with a normal way of life in the current conflict zones.

The three-day Rhodes forum will close on Sunday.

THE HAGUE, Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- The specific terror threat of Wednesday night in Rotterdam was over, Rotterdam mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb said on Thursday.

The threat of an attack around the Maassilo concert hall was over with the arrest of a 22-year-old man with a Dutch nationality from the city of Zevenbergen, in the province of North Brabant on early Thursday morning, Aboutaleb told national broadcaster NOS before attending a meeting of his city council. The house of the suspect is being searched.

In an interview with BNR Radio Chris Kunitz Womens Jersey , Security and Justice Minister Stef Blok said that the arrested suspect had spread a message about the threat himself. Blok did not reveal how the suspect did that.

Spanish police had tipped their Dutch counterparts on the terror threat. According to Blok, the threat was so serious that the police and mayor Aboutaleb decided to cancel the concert of Allah-Las Tyler Johnson Womens Jersey , a U.S. pop band from California.

"Unfortunately, you sometimes have to take such measures," Blok said. "It was a very alarming message."

Frank Paauw, chief of the Rotterdam police, said to the NOS that there was concrete information about a "violent attack" at the Maassilo hall Anton Stralman Womens Jersey , with a specific time and the name of the band Allah-Las.
