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.

Chinese president, Cambodian king hold talksPHNOM PENH - Visiting Chinese President Hu Jintao met Cambodian King Norodom Sihamoni here Saturday to discuss the development of all-round cooperation between China and the Southeast Asian nation.

Before the meeting, Hu attended a welcome ceremony hosted by the Cambodian king.

According to his schedule, Hu will meet Cambodian Senate President Chea Sim, National Assembly President Heng Samrin and Prime Minister Hun Sen later Saturday.

The two sides are expected to discuss ways to enhance the comprehensive strategic partnership of cooperation, and exchange views on major world and regional issues of mutual concern.

The two countries will sign a host of cooperation documents Saturday and issue a joint statement, a Chinese official said.

The Chinese president arrived in the Cambodian capital Friday for a state visit aimed at enhancing the comprehensive strategic partnership of cooperation.

The two countries have enjoyed a traditional friendship as good neighbors, good friends and good partners. They established diplomatic ties in 1958 and the comprehensive strategic partnership of cooperation in 2010.

In recent years, China and Cambodia have maintained frequent exchanges of high-level visits, and strengthened mutual political trust and substantial cooperation in all areas.

The two-way trade between the two countries increased to 2.49 billion U.S. dollars in 2011 from 1.44 billion dollars in 2010.

Cambodia holds the presidency of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in 2012 and plays an important role in East Asian cooperation and China-ASEAN relations.

President Hu flew into Phnom Penh from New Delhi after attending a meeting of the world's top emerging economies -- Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, known as BRICS.

Before that, the Chinese leader participated in the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, South Korea.
