The United Arab Emirates will not suspend BlackBerry services on October 11 after resolving a dispute with its Canadian maker Research in Motion over access to email and other data, state news WAM agency said on Friday.
The UAE had said it would suspend BlackBerry Messenger, email and web browser services to about 500,000 subscribers from October 11 unless Canadian BlackBerry maker RIM works out a way to locate encrypted servers in the country, so that the government can seek access to messages.
"The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has confirmed that Blackberry services are now compliant with the UAE's telecommunications regulatory framework," a statement on WAM said.
Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee reacts during the World Economic Forum in New Delhi
Restoring the International Monetary Fund's credibility after the global financial crisis requires a bold shift of power to developing economies from the rich nations which have long controlled the IMF, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee said on Thursday.
"These changes can enhance the fund's credibility, only if, bold and forward-looking quota and governance changes are implemented, which will restore the fund's legitimacy," he said in statement to the IMF.
"The burden of the quota shift to dynamic emerging markets and developing countries has to be borne primarily by advanced economies and I reiterate my call for a shift of 5 to 6 per cent in quota share from advanced countries to developing countries," Mukherjee said.

India's family-run and entrepreneur-driven firms have long been reluctant to sell out, preferring instead to raise money by going public or through bank borrowings. Private equity firms have adapted their strategies by providing growth capital or investing in companies that are already listed.
"We don't have a 'runs on the board' approach. We are quite happy to sit on the sidelines and wait for the right deal," said Devinjit Singh, a managing director at Carlyle.
