Welcome to a continuation of a discussion about what I call "tricky words or expressions" in the use of English. We are here for Part II, which builds on Part I, my column of Sept. 4.
"Today we announce an arrangement that we think has the capability of sticking." That is how U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, standing with Russia Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, announced the Sept. 9 agreement to pursue a ceasefire and longer-term stability in Syria.
After two decades of economic sanctions on Myanmar, the U.S. has decided to lift them. The announcement was made following a meeting between U.S. President Barack Obama and Myanmar's State Counselor-cum-Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi at the White House on Sept. 14.
After the outrage over the rapid succession of brutal incidents targeting women, it is unfathomable why the government continues to drag its feet on the anti-rape and anti-"honor" killing bills.
North Korea's detonation of its fifth nuclear test last week is a significant punctuation mark in the steadily worsening security situation on the Korean Peninsula.
No one can tell for sure how many migrant workers we actually have in this country. Even the authorities and individual officials offer their own variable numbers, not so much because they have something to hide from the public but simply no one knows exactly how many of them are here.
Presidents, prime ministers and kings will convene in New York next week for the opening of the 71st General Assembly of the United Nations.

Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal's decision to put the affiliation process of medical colleges on hold until a bill on medical education reform is endorsed by the Parliament is a very positive step. This decision follows a recent warning by Govinda KC, a campaigner who has long fought for reforms in the medical sector, that he will once again go on a hunger strike if his demands are not met.
The heavy-handed posture of Chinese President Xi Jinping's administration appears to have led to the rise of "anti-China" forces in Hong Kong.
