- Pacific leaders say climate will claim entire nations
Pacific leaders warned Thursday that entire island nations will disappear under the waves unless action is taken to address climate change. The Pacific Islands Forum (PIF) wrapped up its annual meeting in Palau with a call to action on the issue of global warming, with the 15-nation regional grouping saying there was no excuse not to act to curb climate change. "We all know the causes of climate change, we know the solutions," Samoa Prime Minister Sailele Malielegaoi told reporters after releasing a communique from the three-day meeting. Malielegaoi said Pacific island nations, some of which are barely one metre (three foot) above sea level, were at the forefront of the climate change issue because it was a matter of survival for them.

- Argentina blames US for debt woes, denies default
Argentina blamed the United States for the legal battle that forced it to miss a debt payment and, despite ratings agencies' declarations to the contrary, denied being in default. Ratings agency Fitch declared Argentina in "restrictive default" Thursday after 11th-hour talks failed to resolve the country's dispute with two US hedge funds that refuse to accept a write-down on their Argentine bonds. Fitch's label echoed the "selective default" declared Wednesday by Standard & Poor's. Both terms indicate that Argentina has defaulted on one or more of its financial commitments but continues to meet others. US District Judge Thomas Griesa has blocked Argentina from paying its "exchange creditors" -- those who agreed to take a 70-percent write-down after the country's 2001 default -- without also paying two American hedge funds that took it to court demanding full payment.
