RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s crown prince on Tuesday struck a conciliatory tone towards the kingdom’s arch-nemesis Iran, saying he sought “good” relations, after sources said the rivals held secret talks in Baghdad.
The two countries, locked in a fierce struggle for regional dominance, cut ties in 2016 after Iranian protesters attacked Saudi diplomatic missions following the kingdom’s execution of a revered Shia cleric.
“Iran is a neighbouring country, and all we aspire for is a good and special relationship with Iran,” Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said in a television interview broadcast late Tuesday.
“We do not want Iran’s situation to be difficult. On the contrary, we want Iran to grow… and to push the region and the world towards prosperity.”
He added that Riyadh was working with regional and global partners to find solutions to Tehran’s “negative behaviour”.
That marks a change in tone compared to Prince Mohammed’s previous interviews, in which he lashed out at Tehran, accusing it of fuelling regional insecurity.
The prince did not mention any negotiations with Tehran.
The talks in Baghdad, facilitated by Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhemi, remained secret until the Financial Times reported that a first meeting had been held on April 9.
An Iraqi government official confirmed the talks to AFP, while a Western diplomat said he had been “briefed in advance” about the effort to “broker a better relationship and decrease tensions”.
Riyadh has officially denied the talks in its state-backed media while Tehran has stayed mum, asserting only that it has “always welcomed” dialogue with Saudi Arabia.
The initiative comes at a time of shifting power dynamics, as US President Joe Biden is seeking to revive the tattered 2015 nuclear deal that was abandoned by Donald Trump.
Saudi Arabia and Iran have backed opposite sides of several regional conflicts, from Syria to Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition is fighting the Huthi rebels.
Iran supports the Huthi rebels, who are battling the Saudi-led military coalition that intervened in Yemen’s war in 2015.
The rebels have also stepped up drone and missile strikes on Saudi targets, including its oil facilities.
In his interview, Prince Mohammed renewed calls for a ceasefire and negotiations with the rebels.
Zoom is rolling out a new Immersive View feature to make meetings and classrooms more engaging and collaborative. This feature will allow the host to set a single custom background theme for their meetings or create layouts where participant videos are embedded within a scene that everyone shares, like a classroom or courtroom. This feature was first announced at Zoomtopia 2020 last Octber, and it is now rolling out for desktop users. Immersive View lets you create environments like boardroom, classroom, or auditorium depending on the event you’re hosting.
The company announced that Zoom is rolling out Immersive View for all Windows and macOS desktop clients using version 5.6.3 or higher. Immersive View is enabled by default for all free and Pro accounts. It can be enabled via the web portal for all other account types. Immersive View looks to reduce fatigue during long class sessions, meetings, or other events. It supports up to 25 participants as of now.
The new Zoom feature allows hosts to arrange video participants and webinar panelists into a single virtual background, bringing people together into one scene to connect and collaborate in a cohesive virtual meeting space. The new Immersive View feature will first need to be enabled by the admin or group head in their account settings. Even an individual user will need to enable it by going to Settings > Meetings > InMeeting (advanced) > Immersive View. After it is enabled, users can opt for Immersive View once the meeting has begun by clicking on View > Immersive View > Selecting the scene > Start.
When enabling Immersive View, hosts will have the option to either automatically or manually place participants into a virtual scene of their choosing. Hosts can also easily move participants around that scene and even resize a participant’s image for a more natural experience. Furthermore, the host can easily change the scene or revert back to Speaker or Gallery View at any time. Zoom has provided a few scenes to get users started, but they can also upload their own.
For those participants on Zoom desktop and mobile apps that do not support Immersive View will continue to see other meeting participants in either Gallery View or Speaker View, just with a simple black background. Others in the meeting will still view these unsupported participants in the Immersive View scene with their original backgrounds.

Virender Sehawag Harshal Patel Most Wicket In IPL 2021 DC vs RCB Match 22 IPL 2021 | Virender Sehwag said about the bowling of Harshal Patel, ‘Allah Meharban to Donkey Wrestler’
Royal Challengers Bangalore won their 5th match of IPL 2021 on Tuesday night by defeating Delhi Capitals by one run in a thrilling match. In this victory, RCB bowler Harshal Patel contributed once again with two wickets. Harshal is bowling well this season and with 17 wickets in 6 matches, he is also the highest wicket taker this season.
Against Delhi, Harshal got his team back in the match by dismissing Prithvi Shaw and Marcus Stoynis at crucial times. However, former Indian opener Virender Sehwag feels that Harshal Patel did not bowl much in the match that the Luck factor was with him.
Sehwag told Cricbuzz “The form he is in bowling and the luck he has with him. Stoinis was out for 12 in the over in which he was dismissed, it was not even possible to be dismissed in that over. He came in playing the shot. He might have got a wicket today because of Luck who is not with Harshal Patel. “
He went on to say, “He did not bowl any ball, he had to bowl a wide slow ball to Prithvi Shaw and Shaw ran after that ball to kill. Well when luck happens, it is like ‘Allah Clement then Donkey Wrestler!’ “That saying fits right.”
There was a small storm at the Narendra Modi Stadium after the RCB innings was over. There was no loss due to this storm, but RCB definitely benefited. Actually, it was expected that due to the second inning, the du would play an important role, but due to the arrival of the storm, there was no dew on the ground.
Ashish Nehra said about this “It is absolutely clear that you won by one run. Rishabh Pant batted poorly or the way his strategy was. Apart from this, there are a lot of things that have been in favor of RCB. If DU would have So Pant, who was taking one or two runs, would have been stung in the middle of mid-wicket or mid on. Dew makes a big difference. Dew today gave RCB two points with a one-run win. “

According to Acharya Indu Prakash, Lord Vishnu should be worshiped with Tulsi leaves during the entire Vaishakh month. Know and what works will have to be auspicious.

The European Parliament has ratified the Brexit trade deal by a large majority in what Boris Johnson called the “final step” of years of negotiations over the UK leaving the EU.
“Now is the time to look forward to the future and to building a more Global Britain,” the Prime Minister said.
Mr Johnson said, “This week is the final step in a long journey, providing stability to our new relationship with the EU as vital trading partners, close allies and sovereign equals.”
About four months after the deal was struck on Christmas Eve, 660 MEPs backed the zero tariff, zero quota deal on goods. Just five MEPs voted against the historic agreement, while 32 abstained, four years after the Article 50 Brexit process was triggered in March 2017.
MPs in the House of Commons ratified the trade agreement on December 30 by 521 votes to 73.
Lord Frost, the Brexit minister and former UK negotiator, said he “hugely” welcomed the “overwhelming vote” and thanked his counterpart Michel Barnier for “helping get us here”.
“Hope we can now begin a new chapter together as Europeans, characterised by friendly cooperation between sovereign equals,” he tweeted.
Mr Barnier said MEPs had given the deal a “big green light”. “It is the EU and UK’s joint responsibility now to ensure that their respective commitments are respected,” he added.
The UK-EU agreement was provisionally applied before the end of 2020 no deal deadline to allow the parliament time to scrutinise it before giving it their approval. It will now formally enter into force on April 30.
The agreement replaces the closer trading relationship the UK had with the EU as a member state. Had MEPs rejected it in, the UK and EU could have been forced to trade on far less lucrative no deal WTO terms.
MEPs voted on the trade deal and a resolution on it on Tuesday but the results were only announced on Wednesday.
Ursula von der Leyen, the European Commission president, told MEPs on Tuesday that the deal had “real teeth” and she would not hesitate to use its enforcement mechanisms to ensure the UK implemented the trade and withdrawal agreements.
Britain angered Brussels by unilaterally extending grace periods in the Protocol and the European Commission has begun legal action against the UK.
She promised MEPs they would be involved in the monitoring of the implementation of the trade deal and that level playing field guarantees, agreed after torturous negotiations with London, would be respected.
After the result was announced, she said the deal “marks the foundation of a strong and close partnership with the UK. Faithful implementation is essential.”
Christophe Hansen, a senior MEP on the parliament’s trade committee, said, “Ratification of the agreement is not a vote of blind confidence in the UK Government’s intention to implement our agreements in good faith. Rather, it is an EU insurance policy against further unilateral deviations from what was jointly agreed.”
MEPs also passed on a non-binding resolution on the trade agreement by 578 votes to 51 against and 68 abstentions. It branded Brexit a “historic mistake”.
“It is a logical consequence of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU and in particular the ending of freedom of movement, that the opportunities for the UK’s largely service-based economy are vastly reduced,” the resolution said.
The resolution urged the commission to pursue legal action against the UK over alleged branches of the Northern Ireland Protocol “with vigour”.
It also accused Britain of “depriving young people of such a unique opportunity” by refusing to continue participating in the Erasmus student exchange programme.
Pierre Gattaz, president of the BusinessEurope trade association said, “The UK is the third biggest trading partner of the EU, which makes this deal one of the most important trade agreements the EU has ever finalised.
“The positive vote of the European Parliament removes a major element of uncertainty, while companies on both sides are still adjusting to the new reality of trading while struggling with the COVID-19 challenges.”
