China said on Friday that, in order to safeguard its national interests, it will impose san

The US arms sale infringes on China’s sovereignty and national security, Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said in an online statement.
Geng added that the sale also seriously violates international law and the basic norms of上海419品茶微信
international relations, as well as the one-China principle and three China-US joint communiques.

上海419论坛女神会所The Taiwan Assurance Act of 2019 is a serious violation of the one China principle and the thre
e joint communiqués, which the Sino-US relationship is built on. The US’ i
nterference in China’s internal affairs will not only endanger one of the world’s most important bilateral ties and j上海419论坛
eopardize peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region, but also increase the possibility of the mainland using
上海419论坛女神会所whatever means necessary to realize the final reunification of the island with the motherland.
The US has frequently meddled in Taiwan affairs, which has significantly undermined Sino-US ties, creating worries and risks across the Straits.
But since China is committed to safeguarding its sovereignt上海419论坛女神会所
y and territorial integrity, and achieving national reunification, the US should not ho

ult, the arms sales are anything but a move to stabilize the situation across the Taiwan Straits.
With the current trade frictions between the US and China, what is badly n上海后花园
eeded is more political trust between the two economic heavyweights. Arms sales to t
he island are not only incompatible with the spirit of the three joint communiqués Beijing and Washington signed for the esta
上海后花园女神会所blishment of diplomatic relations, but also set new stumbling blocks in the way of building mutual political trust.
More tension and worsening relations across the Taiwan Straits are not in the interests of the US. Its meddling in the internal af上海后花园
fairs of China in whatever form will only increase the possibility of the mainland resorting to whatever m

The US should not hope to see and will not be able to do anything to prevent that scenario from becoming a reality.
上海后花园The best choice for the US is to stay away from Taiwan affairs.
Ouyang Ziyuan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said that China will launch a mission to Mars with M
artian satellite, Martian lander, as well as Martian rover. China Daily writer Zhang Zhouxiang comments:上海后花园女神会所
In his speech, Ouyang mentioned that one of the main purposes of the
probe is to determine if the planet is suitable for terraforming so humans can inhabit it.上海后花园
For some, his words may sound like science fiction. It remains a fact t
hat only about 400 people in the whole of human history have ever ventured into space. Of th
em, only 12 astronauts have left their steps on the moon, the nearest celestial body to our Earth.
No human has been to Mars yet. SpaceX has an ambitious plan to set up a human colony on the Red Planet, but NASA’s ex
isting plan to get humans to the planet seems to have been kiboshed by funding constraints.
China has now thrown its hat into the ring.
While it might be some time in the future, the good news is, once humankind inh
abits Mars and starts to terraform it, the planet’s potential can be fully exploited and its rich supply of resources can p
rovide ample support for human kind’s further development and exploration of the planet.
against the central government shows they could not care less about the
overall interest of Hong Kong society and are merely exploiting the controversy over t上海千花网品茶微信
he extradition law amendment to advance their own agenda, as they have don

Now that the SAR government has called time on the amendment bill, it can turn its attention to the most important mat

上海千花网Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen and other secessionists on the island ma
y feel exhilarated about the US State Department on Monday approving the pot
ential sale to Taiwan of $2.2 billion in arms, considering the move to be a sign that they will be able to count on the U上海千花网品茶微信
nited States for help should there be a military confrontation with the Chinese mainland.
And for those in the US who consider Taiwan as a pawn the US can use上海千花网
in its competition with China, the sale of arms represents not only a profitable deal, but also
a hedge to maintain the status quo in which they can regard Taiwan as an independent entity.上海千花网品茶微信
Tsai and her followers should know that their exhilaration is nothing but whistling past the
graveyard. The more arms the island buys from the US, the less safe the island becomes as efforts to bu上海千花网
ild up the island’s military capabilities only serve to send a clear message of secessionism to the mainland.
Tsai and her followers should not underestimate the mainland’s resolve to defend the nation’s sovereignty and territ
orial integrity. The farther the island moves away from the possible peaceful reunion w
ith its motherland, the more resolute the mainland will become to take the island back by force.
By building up its military defense, Tsai is playing a game of brinkmanship.
To bring an end to the protests sparked by the proposed amendments to the special administrative region’s extradit
ion law, Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor announced on Tuesday her ad上海千花网
ministration’s decision not to restart the suspended legislative process for the amendments, saying the “bill is dead”.
上海千花网女神会所The demonstrations, some of them violent, have threatened the health of the city’s economy and thus the well-being of its resi
dents, and Lam also unveiled a raft of practical initiatives aimed at strengthening communication between th
e SAR government and the public, with the ultimate objective of improving governance in the SAR.上海千花网女神会所
It might be demanding too much of those leading the protests to have the kind of vision and political courage exhibited by the chief exec
上海千花网utive in her willingness to make compromises in policymaking in the face of public opposition. But they sh
ould have the wisdom to realize that persistent political conflict and unrest do not bode well for the city and residents, es
pecially at a time when the local economy is still licking its wounds from the ongoing Sino-US trade row.上海千花网女神会所
Hong Kong’s economy has slowed significantly over recent months, with the yea
上海千花网r-on-year GDP growth having eased to 0.6 percent in the first quarter of this year — the
slowest expansion in a decade — as both foreign trade and domestic consumption have been hard hit by the tra
de conflict between the Chinese mainland and the United States, the city’s two largest trading partners. Any es上海千花网女神会所
calation of the social conflict witnessed recently will only further harm Hong Kong’s economy and people’s livelihoods.
上海千花网Yet, the organizers of some of the mass rallies have said they will announce
more protests in the coming days until the bill is officially withdrawn from the legi
slative agenda. But more social unrest will only hinder efforts to tackle the fundamental problems that have a ta上海千花网
ngible effect on the lives of Hong Kong residents, particularly the younger generation — such as the severe housing s上海千花网女神会所
hortage, lack of social upward mobility and the widening wealth gap, which have fueled the social discontent.

A veteran of such US universities as the University of Chicago and Yale University has become the first foreigner appointed by a Beij上海千花坊
ing university to a management position since the reform and opening-up policy was launched in 1978.
上海千花坊David Zupko was recently appointed deputy director of Tsinghua University’s global cooperation
and communication office after working at different universities in the United States for more than 20 years.
In 2017, when he was asked by the National Cultural Heritage Ad上海千花坊品茶微信
ministration if he would consider exhibiting his family collection in China, he agreed.
His sentiment was echoed by Wang Xudong, the then director of the Dunhuang Academ上海千花坊

上海千花坊品茶微信The Pritzker Art Collaborative brought 35 artifacts to the exhibition in Dunhuang. It is joined by key Chin

ling family, the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, and Hirayama Ikuo Silk Road Museum in Japan.
Abegg-Stiftung, a Swiss collection that mainly features textiles, dropped its “zero l上海千花坊品茶微信

A hanging brocade with roundel featuring a pair of stags locking horns, on loan from Abegg-Stiftung, is one of the m
ost important exhibits on display. It is believed to have been hung as decoration in the tents of Tubo nobles as a symbol of power.上海千花坊品茶微信
“The Silk Road carries a message for all of us today,” Thomas Pritzker says. “The world will

“If we learn more about another country’s culture, it will be easier to find ways to solve these problems,” he says.
