BRUSSELS, Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- NATO Deputy Secretary General Rose Gottemoeller on Tuesday stressed the importance of continuing dialogue with Russia at a forum in Germany, according to a NATO statement.

Participating in a panel discussion at the Berlin Policy Forum, Gottemoeller outlined the Alliance's dual-track approach of strong defense and dialogue with Russia.

She said that in times of tension, dialogue with Russia is even more important to reduce risks and build confidence.

NATO suspended practical cooperation with Russia in April 2014 in response to the Ukraine crisis, and the NATO-Russia Council was the only channel left open.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has also highlighted that NATO wants dialogue with Russia.

"Russia is our biggest neighbor, Russia is there to stay and especially when tensions run high and especially when we face many different security challenges, it is important to have dialogue," Stoltenberg told media while attending EU defense ministers meeting on Nov. 15.

South Korean President Park Geun-hye will not be ready to appear before prosecutors until next week despite their demand to question her sooner over a snowballing political scandal, her lawyer said Thursday.

Park, who would be the first sitting president to be interrogated in a criminal case nike vapormax red uk , has seen her approval ratings plunge in recent weeks, with hundreds of thousands of protesters taking to Seoul's streets on Saturday demanding her resignation.

The scandal centers on Park's shadowy confidant Choi Soon-sil, who is accused of using her ties with the president to coerce local firms to donate millions of dollars to non-profit foundations that Choi then used for personal gain.

Prosecutors have said they need to question Park by Friday at the latest as part of their investigation into Choi.

Choi, 60 nike air vapormax blue uk , is also accused of interfering in state affairs to the extent of nominating officials and editing Park's speeches even though she has no official title or security clearance.

Park's lawyer Yoo Young-ha said the president was willing to "cooperate" in the investigation but said she needed more time.

"I will rush through my preparations and cooperate so that an investigation into the president can be conducted next week," Yoo said.

Under South Korea's constitution, the incumbent president may not be charged with a criminal offence except insurrection or treason.

But many have argued the sitting president can be investigated by prosecutors and then charged after leaving office.

Prosecutors on Thursday requested a local court to issue an arrest warrant for Kim Chong, former vice sports minister accused of helping Choi's foundations win state contracts nike vapormax blue uk , Yonhap said.

Prosecutors are also investigating whether Kim played a role in a recent decision by his ministry to provide a cash subsidy to a winter sports foundation run by Choi's niece.

Lawmakers on Thursday passed a bill to set up a special independent counsel to probe the widening scandal after opposition parties said they were dissatisfied with the existing investigation.

TIANJIN, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- Still in his early 20s, world champion shooter Yang Haoran is a man of few words. But he is not shy about naming his ambitions to compete in the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. That Olympic dream has moved closer to becoming reality for Yang, who just won four medals at the ongoing 13th Chinese National Games.

The 21-year-old Yang nike air vapormax white uk , from Hebei province, nailed golds in the men's 10m air rifle and the 50m rifle 3 positions, got one silver in the newly-introduced 10m air rifle mixed team, and one bronze from the 10m air rifle team event from his second National Games.

Yang is the reigning champion in the men's 10m air rifle nike vapormax white uk , but he has seldom competed in the men's 50m rifle 3p event.

Yang set a new national record with 1,189 points in the men's 50m rifle 3p qualification round, surpassing the world mark by three points on Thursday. The current world record was set by Nazar Louginets of Russia on June 12, 2014 at the ISSF World Cup Rifle & Pistol in Munich of Germany.

"I am glad to win my second gold in the 50m rifle 3p nike air vapormax black uk , especially because I've never won in the event before," said Yang, who scored 460.4 points in the 50m rifle 3p final.

"I feel ashamed, because Yang is not really a shooter familiar with the 50m rifle 3p nike vapormax black uk ," said Hui Zicheng of the PLA team, who finished second in the event.

It seems Hui is correct in his assessment. Yang is mainly known for his stellar record in the 10m air rifle, which began in 2013 as a young Chinese emerged as a shooting prodigy.

In 2012, Yang won the youth event in the 10m air rifle at the Asian Air Gun Championships. One year later www.airvapormaxuk.com , the 17-year-old Yang won the men's 10m air rifle event from his first try at the ISSF World Cup stage in Fort Benning, USA on May 6, 2013.

The gold medal seemed to open a door for the young shooter. Yang reaped golds in two ISSF World Cup stages and the World Cup .
