SINGAPORE, March 13 (Xinhua) -- Singapore will release a new set of stamps to commemorate 50 years of national service (NS), said Singapore Post (SingPost) in a press release on Monday.

The stamps will feature Singapore's founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew, as well as the late former Minister for Defense Goh Keng Swee, both key figures in the introduction of National Service.

According to SingPost, the set also includes the enlistment of the first batches of full-time NSmen into the Singapore Armed Forces, the Singapore Police Force, and the Singapore Civil Defense Force, as well as the introduction of the Open Mobilization System.

A special Collecter's Sheet is also available which comprises two stamps featuring portraits of Lee and Goh, against a backdrop with an excerpt of Lee's speech at the sending-off dinner for the initial batch of full-time NSmen on Aug. 29 1967.

CANBERRA nike air max 2017 flyknit femme , May 9 (Xinhua) -- Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) President John Coates on Saturday called for more investigative powers to Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA).

Speaking at the AOC Annual General Meeting in Sydney, Coates said that "coersive powers" should be introduced under which athletes are required to attend an interview to answer questions, give information and produce documents, even if to do so might tend to incriminate them.

"When it comes to investigating most of the nine anti-doping rule violations which are not based on the presence of a prohibited substance in an athlete's sample, ASADA has been largely left with its hands tied behind its back," Coates said.

In 2013 the Australian Senate rejected coercive powers when they considered the ASADA Amendment Bill.

However nike air max 2017 flyknit homme , the AOC had filled the void in respect of alleged anti-doping rule violations by the insertion of more expansive "coercive powers" in amendments to the AOC Anti-Doping By-Law in May 2013.

Under that By-Law all athletes in an Australian Olympic Team, and athlete support personnel are obligated to "co-operate with and assist ASADA, by attending an interview to fully and truthfully answer questions; giving information; and producing documents,in an investigation being conducted by ASADA, even if to do so might tend to incriminate them or expose them to a penalty, sanction or other disciplinary measure.

BEIJING nike air max 2017 kpu femme , Dec. 28 (Xinhua) -- China responded to the agreement reached by Japan and the Republic of Korea (ROK) on Japan's wartime sexual slavery of Korean women during World War II on Monday, calling on Japan to deal with historical issues in a responsible way.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe "expressed apology and remorse from the heart for all the people suffering hard-to-cure wounds and many pains" physically and psychologically, Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida told a joint press conference in Seoul with his ROK counterpart Yun Byung-se after talks on the thorny issue.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang told a daily press briefing that the forced recruitment of "comfort women" is a serious crime against humanity committed by Japanese militarism during World War II on people of Asia and other victimized countries.

"China has always advanced that Japan should face squarely and reflect upon its historical aggression, and deal with related issues in a responsible way," Lu said.

The agreement could be seen as progress in Seoul-Tokyo relations as the issue has strained ties for decades. It marked the first time that the Japanese government "officially" expressed its responsibility for the war crime.

On the possible improvement of the relationship between Japan and the ROK, Lu said China hopes that the melioration of ROK-Japan ties "will be conducive to the stability and development of the region and help promote relevant countries stick to a path of peaceful development."
