MADRID, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- Real Madrid central defender Pepe said on Tuesday that if he doesn't extend his current contract with the club he will consider retiring from football.

Pepe made the comments in an interview with Spanish radio station 'Cadena Ser' after being asked about negotiations to renew his current deal which expires at the end of June 2017.

The Brazilian-born Portuguese international will be almost 35 years old when that happens, but the transfer ban imposed and confirmed by FIFA means that should he leave the club at the end of the campaign, it would be impossible to replace him, except with players either out on loan or from the Madrid youth system.

"I am happy at Madrid and I am going to wait until the very last fraction of a second," said Pepe regarding the negotiations.

"If i don't renew my deal, I might think about leaving football and spending more time with my family," he said, before insisting he was not imposing difficult conditions on the club.

"I would be perfectly happy to sign a one-year deal. I am happy in Madrid, my daughter goes to school here... It is easy for Madrid," continued the defender.

Pepe was also asked about the differences between current Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane and Jose Mourinho, who worked with Pepe for four years at the club.

"Mourinho has a lot of experience as a coach, but Zidane was a player and he knows the way that players think and he knows what we need," he explained.

SYDNEY Femme Puma Suede Heart Satin Sneakers Noir , March 17 (Xinhua) -- Australia's peak professional medical body called on Tuesday for the sport of boxing to be banned after a boxer died.

The renewed demand from the Australian Medical Association (AMA) came hours after the boxer's final bout.

Professional Queensland boxer Braydon Smith fell into a coma 90 minutes after a fight and did not recover.

The 23-year-old collapsed after his featherweight bout against Filipino John Moralde.

"We believe that a so-called sport where two people knock each other in the head as often as you possibly can to win a bout seems rather barbaric," Queensland AMA president Dr. Shuan Rudd told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

CAIRO, Dec. 19 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Donald Trump's speech on his national security strategy in many ways contradicted the document itself, experts in the Middle East said Tuesday.

In a speech outlining his administration's first national security strategy on Monday Femme Puma Basket Heart Patent Sneakers Blanche , Trump touted again his campaign logo of "America First."

But when it comes to several international issues, Trump's speech contradicted what is said in the 68-page document that provides the framework for his administration's foreign policy.


The outstanding example is Trump's much softer talk about Russia, which is labelled by the document as a "revisionist" power bent on undermining the U.S. interests, and accused of meddling in the U.S. presidential race in 2016.

But in his speech Femme Puma Basket Heart Patent Sneakers Noir , Trump not only failed to mention the alleged Russia's intervention in the election that he won, but also touted a phone call from Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to thank him for providing intelligence to foil a major terror attack in Russia.

In fact, Trump has been seeking warmer ties with Russia since he took office in January despite the relentless investigation conducted by U.S. Congress into the suspected link between his campaign and Russia.

"Trump's speech highlighted the gap between his theories and his actions," Norhan al-Sheikh Chaussures Femme Homme Puma Ignite Evoknit Low Noir , professor of international relations at the Cairo University, told Xinhua.

"Also in the speech, we noticed remarkable gap between the tough language of Trump towards the rivals of the U.S. (China and Russia), and the actual policies that he has adopted since he took office Chaussures Homme Puma Ignite Evoknit High Blanche ," al-Sheikh noted.

Theoretically, Russia is called the main strategic enemy of the U.S., but Trump on Monday described happily Putin's phone call, which "seemed to be courting Russia Chaussures Puma Ignite Limitless Homme Noir ," she pointed out.

Trump also contradicted himself in his speech when he talked about the rising competition from Russia and China.

After calling Russia and China two "revisionist" powers seeking to undermine the U.S. influence, values and interests, Trump immediately called for building "great partnership" with them, al-Sheikh noted.

Trump once again demanded NATO allies share more the cost of protecting Europe by threatening to beat a retreat Chaussures Puma Ignite Limitless Femme Kaki , though his administration vows to restore the U.S. presence on international issues which diminished under his predecessor Barack Obama.

"Trump's speech is contradictory, and he seems to be dealing with a hypothetical world," al-Sheikh said. "His logic is very strange because of his contradicted polices."


However, experts expressed the worry about the more confrontational stance taken by the Trump administration in its new security policy.

Selcuk Colakoglu puma creepers velvet bordeaux , director of Turkish Center for Asia Pacific Studies, said the new U.S. strategy indicates a "more confrontational" approach toward Russia, China, Iran and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

"This also supports the argument that further escalation over the Iranian and North Korean nuclear issues is imminent puma creepers velvet pas cher ," Colakoglu told Xinhua.

Mehmet Ali Guller, a columnist with the Turkish Aydinlik Daily, tweeted that the new strategy indicates that the U.S. will create more troubles for its rivals in order to curb their influence.

For al-Sheikh, one worrisome fact is that the main focus of the Trump administration's policy "is and will be the U.S. interests puma fenty creepers noir ," so it could seek to buy new friends through trade and form new alliances even at the expenses of international agreements.
