Chinese officials and experts have urged politicians in the United States to stop using the situat
ion in Hong Kong as a bargaining chip for negotiations or as leverage for fueling competition with Beijing.上海乌托邦品茶微信
Senior politicians such as US Vice-President Mike Pence and House Speaker Nancy Pel
osi have spoken out on or pushed legislation concerning the recent violent protests in the city.上海乌托邦品茶微信
Pence angered China on Monday by telling the Detroit Economic Club that “for the Un
ited States to make a deal with China”, Beijing needs to “respect the integrity of Hong Kong’s laws”.
上海乌托邦”Our administration will continue to urge Beijing to act in a humanitarian manner,” Pence added.
In response, the Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner’s Office in the Hong Kong Special A
dministrative Region said on Tuesday that China resolutely opposes any country attempting to “take Hong Kong’s s上海乌托邦
tability and prosperity as well as the well-being of more than 7 million Hong Kong residents as a bargaining chip”.
“Do not daydream about China making a deal using its territorial sovereignty and national reunification,” an unnamed spokesperson上海乌托邦品茶微信
said in a statement, calling for a halt to intervention in China’s domestic affairs, including Hong Kong affairs.
On Aug 6, Pelosi said in a written statement that “the extraordinary outpourin

There was a “China is not an enemy” open letter to the US president recently in The Wa
上海千花网shington Post by a group from the academic, foreign policy, military and business communities, overwhelmingly from
the US, including a former US ambassador to China and professors from Yale, MIT and Harvard.
The letter reads in part: “US opposition will not prevent the continued expansion of the Chinese economy, a greater global mar上海千花网女神会所
ket share for Chinese companies and an increase in China’s role in world affairs…. We do not believe Beijing is an ec
nomic enemy or an existential national security threat that must be confronted in every sphere.”上海千花网
It is imperative for the protesters to heal the wound now and clearly stay
away from the rioters. Identify the right crowd and recognize one incontrovertible fact－t
hat Hong Kong is part of China. Upholding the “one country, two systems” principle is the first step toward上海千花网女神会所
restoring the rule of law in Hong Kong. Please do not become the ones you hated most. If Hong Kong becomes hell, you are
contributing to it, for, as the open letter mentioned earlier also says, “Efforts to isolate
China will simply weaken those Chinese intent on developing a more humane and tolerant society.”上海千花网
The wrong crowd cannot represent you, and you are the most unique if you avoid the crowd and turn back now.

In 2017, China devised a national park system aimed at protecting more of the country’s areas of outstanding natural bea

When Brenda Kazule returned to Zambia after completing her master’s degree at the Institute of South-South Cooperation and
上海419品茶微信Development at Peking University in June last year, she had a thick book in her unwieldy luggage.
Kazule, a traditional-affairs officer from Muchinga province, said the book — Xi Jinping: The Governance of China — is import
ant to her because it gave her insights about China’s development as well as the governing of the world’s most popu上海419
lous country by the Communist Party of China, and she wanted to share it with her colleagues.
Since Xi Jinping was elected as general secretary of the CPC Central Committee in November 2012 and p上海419品茶微信
resident of China in March 2013, the country’s diplomacy has opened new prospects and achieved new progress.
上海419The book is a collection of several dozen speeches and essays by Xi on a variety of topics. It interprets the concepts and prin
ciples of the top CPC leadership’s governance and also helps foreign people better understand China’s development
path, its domestic and foreign policies and responses to international concerns about the country.上海419品茶微信

Borrowing costs will get lower for companies in China starting Tuesday through a
key interest rate reform brought out by the People’s Bank of China, the central bank, to maintain ec上海419
onomic momentum amid the continuing trade friction with the United States.
上海419女神会所Analysts say the interest rate reform will lower financing costs for small a
nd private companies and encourage investment in the manufacturing sector.
The PBOC unveiled the policy over the weekend, saying it would introduce a new reference rate, the loan prime rate－the pr上海419
ice of loans banks offer their best clients－for setting the prices of business and household loans. The earlier re
上海419ference rate, the one-year benchmark lending rate, will be replaced in the future.
The announcement is seen as China’s most significant market-based interest rate reform for over a decade, experts said.上海419女神会所
The PBOC said in a statement that, starting Tuesday, 18 qualified commer
cial banks, including State-owned banks, city and rural commercial banks and foreign banks, will report their lend
上海419ing reference rate every month. Analysts expect the first loan prime rate will be much lower than the current 4.35 per
cent one-year benchmark lending rate, which has been unchanged since August 2015.
The statement said commercial banks will be allo上海419
wed to float the lending rates up by certain percentage points above the medium-ter
上海419女神会所m lending facility rate of the central bank. The medium-term lending rate is the cost that commercial banks sho
uld pay for borrowing from the central bank, and it was set at 3.3 percent on Thursday.
Sheng Songcheng, a central bank adviser and former head of the PBOC’s
statistics department, said the reform will help keep lending rates lower.
Moreover, the changes will enable the PBOC to effectively influence Chin上海419女神会所
a’s entire interest rate system by selling or buying financial instruments on the open
market, much like how Western central banks implement monetary policy, Sheng said.

In addition to Afghanistan, the foundation has provided h 上海千花网

上海千花网jects, it has established emergency centers in Pakistan, provided free diagnosis and treatment to children with co
ngenital heart disease in Afghanistan and Mongolia, built a blood dialysis center in B
angladesh, constructed mobile hospitals for Syria and Iraq and donated rescue vehicles in Cambodia and Laos, he said. 上海千花网
“Most of the programs have been carried out since 2017, follow
ing the proposal of the Belt and Road Initiative (in 2013),”
Liu said. “Humanitarian assistance is badly needed in many countries involved in the 上海千花网品茶微信
initiative. Although much smaller in scale compared with international assistance delivered by the Chinese gov
ernment, China Red Cross humanitarian assistance has played a very important role in promoting frie
上海千花网ndship between China and these countries, and emotional connectivity between different peoples.”
For example, a foundation project that has provided free treatment in Chinese hospitals over the past two years to 100 Mo
ngolian children under age 14 with congenital heart disease has won high praise from the Mongolian government a 上海千花网
nd was recognized as one of the best humanitarian assistance projects in the country last year, Liu said.
In June, another Chinese medical team arrived in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia, to screen around 100 of the m
ost urgent cases of congenital heart disease for free treatment in Hohhot, the capital of 上海千花网品茶微信
the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, and in Wuxi, Jiangsu province.
In neighboring Pakistan, an emergency center established by the foundation in Gwadar in 上海千花网
cooperation with the Pakistani Red Crescent Society has also won the praise of locals, Liu said.
As of the end of April, three medical assistance teams sent by the Red 上海千花网品茶微信
