China urges U.S. to bar Taiwan delegation from Trump inauguration
China on Wednesday urged the United States not to allow a Taiwanese delegation to attend U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration. Trump broke with decades of precedent last month by taking a congratulatory telephone call from Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, and he has also said the "One China" policy was up for negotiation. A Taiwan delegation, led by former premier and ex-ruling party leader Yu Shyi-Kun, and including a Taiwan national security adviser and some lawmakers, will attend Friday's inauguration, Taiwan's Foreign Ministry said this week.
Australia says suspended MH370 search could resume in future
By Tom Westbrook SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australia said on Wednesday it was not ruling out a future underwater search for a missing Malaysia Airlines passenger jet as families of those on board criticised the decision to suspend the hunt after three fruitless years. The location of Flight MH370 has become one of the world's greatest aviation mysteries since the plane, a Boeing 777, disappeared in 2014 en route to Beijing from the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur with 239 people on board. "I don't rule out a future underwater search by any stretch," Australian Transport Minister Darren Chester told reporters in Melbourne, a day after Australia, Malaysia and China called off the search in the southern Indian Ocean.
Trump's U.N. pick to echo his criticism of world body, offer some praise
By Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Donald Trump's pick for U.N. ambassador will echo his condemnation of the world body's treatment of Israel at her Senate confirmation hearing on Wednesday, although offering some praise for an organization the president-elect has disparaged. Nikki Haley, a rising star in the Republican Party, will face tough questioning from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about her lack of experience in foreign policy and the federal government. Haley, who turns 45 on Friday when Trump takes office, has been governor of South Carolina since 2011.
Unsolved problems hang over Hong Kong leader's last policy address
By James Pomfret and Donny Kwok HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong's leader on Wednesday delivered his last annual policy statement before stepping down, addressing longstanding problems including high property prices and stalled political reform though providing no substantial new measures to tackle them. Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying took office in 2012 pledging to make housing more affordable, and to bring greater democracy to the city of 7.2 million, issues that had also stymied his predecessors. Political reforms have stalled amid growing worries among democracy activists about mainland interference that they see threatening the city's autonomy.
Malaysian court revives clemency option for jailed leader Anwar
Malaysia's jailed opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim scored a minor legal victory on Wednesday, as a court ruled that he can proceed with his bid to challenge the rejection of his petition for a royal pardon. Anwar is seen as the biggest political threat to Prime Minister Najib Razak, who has been buffeted by allegations of graft and mismanagement mostly related to a multi-billion dollar scandal at state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). Anwar, a former deputy prime minister, has served nearly two years of a five-year sentence after the country's highest court upheld a sodomy conviction in February 2015, a charge the charismatic leader and his supporters say was trumped up.

Asia stocks hover near three-month highs; sterling in spotlight
Asian stock markets stabilized near three-month highs on Wednesday, helped by Hong Kong and Chinese shares, as investors judged U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's concerns over a stronger dollar to be beneficial to some of the regional bourses. Short-covering also helped, especially in China , which tumbled more than 4 percent last week, as traders took some money off the table before Trump's inauguration on Friday. In Asia, MSCI's ex-Japan Asia-Pacific shares index rose 0.4 percent, just shy of a three-month high hit last Thursday.
Deutsche Bank sees fourth quarter pretax impact of $1.2 billion from DoJ civil penalty
Deutsche Bank expects a negative impact of $1.2 billion on its fourth-quarter pretax profit from a civil monetary penalty of $3.1 billion agreed with the U.S. Department of Justice, its chief executive said in a message to staff. Germany's biggest bank on Tuesday finalised a $7.2 billion settlement with the DoJ over its sale of toxic mortgage securities in the run-up to the 2008 financial crisis, which also included $4.1 billion of consumer relief.
Oil rises on weaker dollar, U.S. production outlook caps gains
By Naveen Thukral SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Oil prices rose on Wednesday with a weaker dollar underpinning the market, although gains were limited by expectations that U.S. producers would boost output. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil futures were trading up 22 cents at $52.70 per barrel at 0742 GMT. Brent crude futures, the international benchmark for oil prices, were up 23 cents $55.70 a barrel.
U.S. lobby says China protectionism fuelling foreign business pessimism
More than 80 percent of members of a U.S. business lobby in China say foreign companies are less welcome than in the past, a survey released on Wednesday showed, with most saying they have little confidence in China's vows to open its markets. The American Chamber of Commerce in China's annual survey reinforces growing pessimism in the foreign business community, as it grapples with a slowing Chinese economy and complains of increasing protectionism. The chamber's report comes a day after China's President Xi Jinping gave a speech at the World Economic Forum championing open markets, and Beijing unveiled proposals to reduce restrictions on foreign investment in China.
BAT agrees to buy Reynolds for $49 billion
By Paul Sandle LONDON (Reuters) - British American Tobacco has agreed a $49.4 billion takeover of U.S. rival Reynolds American Inc , creating the world's biggest listed tobacco company after it increased an earlier offer by more than $2 billion. BAT, which already owned 42 percent of Reynolds, will pay $29.44 in cash and 0.5260 BAT shares for each Reynolds share, it said, a 26 percent premium over the price of the stock on Oct. 20, the day before BAT's first offer was made public. Reynolds, the maker of Camel and Newport cigarettes, rejected an initial approach in November, although the two sides remained in talks.
