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.

Russian, South Korean leaders meet in Seoul

Seoul - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev met his South Korean counterpart Lee Myung-bak Monday during the ongoing Seoul Nuclear Security Summit.

Medvedev said their seventh meeting is “evidence of an unprecedented amount of activity between the two countries and the friendly nature of the personal relationships that exist  between us”.

Russia and South Korea have “significantly developed their cooperation” in recent years, Lee said.

The two-day summit in the South Korean capital will focus on international measures to protect nuclear materials and facilities from terrorism threats.

Neighbouring North Korea has been subjected to several rounds of UN Security Council sanctions since it declared itself a nuclear power in 2005. The state broke off talks with South Korea,  China, the US, Japan and Russia on its nuclear programme in April 2009, after the UN Security Council passed a resolution condemning its missile tests.
