RIO DE JANEIRO cheap nike air force 1 mens high uk , Nov. 3 (Xinhua) -- Medals awarded at the Rio 2016 Olympics will contain metal from recycled electronic equipment, organizers said on Monday.

The initiative, conceived by the local organizing committee's design team, forms part of Rio's Olympic sustainability pledge, according to Rio2016.

Almost 5000 award medals and 75,000 participation medals for the event will be produced by the Brazilian Mint, a public company linked to the federal treasury department.

""The medals are one of the most important symbols of the Games and we are very pleased that we can count on the Brazilian Mint as our partner in this unique moment in the history of the Brazilian sport,"" said Rio 2016 president Carlos Nuzman.

Brazilian Mint president Francisco Franco said he hoped for a larger-than-ever contingent of Brazilian medal recipients.

""The Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro is a very special event and we could not stay out of it,"" Franco said. ""We hope most of these medals will be won by Brazilian competitors.""


CANBERRA, Feb. 19 (Xinhua) -- The Australian government has not ruled out working with Russia in the fight against the Islamic State (IS) group in the Middle East, the nation's defense minister said Sunday.

Following high-level international defense talks in Brussels last week, at which Australia's Defense Minister Marise Payne met with counterparts including U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis, the Australian government has said it would consider working with Russia to get a desirable outcome in war-torn Syria.

"Australia is willing to work with any nation that is willing to make a constructive contribution to the fight against (Islamic State)," Payne told Fairfax Media on Sunday.

"As matters advance in Syria, these are matters the government will consider but I'm not going to make any further comment on that at the moment."

Australia has previously been hesitant to throw its support behind Russia's foray into the Middle East, but following the election of Donald Trump, the United States, Australia's closest ally, has indicated it was open to forming closer ties with the Kremlin to defeat IS.

Payne's comments came after Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said he was also open to the idea of increasing Australia's presence in the region, if requested by Australia's military allies.

"(But) I should say that Australia already has one of the largest, if not the largest presence in the alliance against IS, other than the United States in foreign contributions," Turnbull said Friday from New Zealand, where he met with counterpart Bill English.

VALLETTA, Feb. 1 (Xinhua) -- As the EU informal summit in Malta is to be held on Friday, a senior researcher at The Hague Institute for Global Justice has described the summit as "a moment of truth" for the EU27 bloc.

"The current challenges urge the EU to clearly define what kind of global actor it wishes to be, what values it stands for, and how it can defend its interests. The capacities are there, and perhaps now that political will follows as a necessity," said Joris Larik.

The EU experienced a tumultuous year of 2016 dominated by terror attacks, migrant crisis and Brexit vote outcome, and began to face new challenges in the first month of 2017 amid new U.S. administration's unprecedented open hostility towards the European integration.

U.S. President Donald Trump openly encouraged the withdrawal of a EU member state and sowed disunity among the remaining ones, which represents a complete U-turn in U.S. policy towards Europe from the last 70 years, said Larik.

He referred to Trump's pronouncements that the UK was "so smart in getting out" and "other countries would leave." The U.S. president also called the EU "basically a vehicle for Germany."

"Its open hostility thus far towards the EU and European integration in general is unprecedented," commented Larik.

The Malta Summit is the first meeting of leaders of all 28 EU member states since Donald Trump started a new U.S. administration marked by radical break with the past.

In a letter to the 27 heads of state or government released three days ahead of the Malta summit, President of the European Council Donald Tusk branded Trump's "worrying declarations" as an external threat, which, along with other factors, "make our future highly unpredictable."

But such external threats are not the only concerns for the EU, while it is also being plagued by some internal ones.

Tusk mentioned in his letter "the rise in anti-EU, nationalist, increasingly xenophobic sentiment in the EU itself" and "decline of faith in political integration, submission to populist arguments and doubt in the fundamental values of liberal democracy."

Two weeks ago, European far-right leaders, met in Koblenz, Germany. Those leaders, including France's National Front leader Marine Le Pen, Germany's anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) leader Frauke Petry, Netherlands' anti-Islam Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders and Matteo Salvini of Italy's anti-EU Northern League, jointly sought to present a common front in a year of high-stakes elections.

Moreover, they have all expressed admiration for the new U.S. President Donald Trump.

Tusk concluded his letter with "we should remind our American friends of their own motto: United we stand, divided we fall."

But will the EU show "European pride" as Tusk has summoned remains a question, as it is still grappling with its own thorny issues, such as migrant crisis.

The flow of refugees to Italy from the Libyan coast has become the main concern for the EU after a EU-Turkish deal reached last year has slashed the numbers arriving in Greece via Turkey.
