Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Pyongyang -  North Korea has decided to invite foreign experts and journalists to monitor the launch of its new satellite next month.

According to the state-run media, the Korean Committee for Space Technology (KCST) would "invite experienced foreign experts on space science and technology and journalists to visit the Sohae Satellite Launching Station, the General Satellite Control and Command Center and other places to observe its launch."

North Korea had informed the International Civil Aviation Organization, the International Maritime Organization, the International Telecommunication Union and others in line with international procedures, Xinhua reports.

Pyongyang recently announced that it would launch an "earth observation" satellite, or the Kwangmyongsong-3, to mark the 100th birthday of late leader Kim Il-sung.

A KCST spokesman stressed that the launch was for "peaceful purposes" and would "strictly abide by relevant international regulations."
