The war of words and 上海后花园ing between Washingt

gton and Moscow over the INF Treaty, the first such agreement to reduce the two countries’ nuclear arsenal during the Cold War, has left the treaty hanging in limbo.

上海后花园女神会所It goes without saying that the exit of both signatories from the tre

aty makes the future of other such nuclear agreements uncertain. To begin with, the stabili

ty of the world order and international security could be undermined. The ruse to scrap the INF Trea上海后花园

ty is the US’ latest one in a series moves to nullify many international agreements and organizations since the incumbent US dispensation assumed offi

上海后花园女神会所ce in January 2017. The US’ unilateral withdrawal from a number of multilateral agreements and me

chanisms, most of which were created due to its own efforts, has put the world order based on rules under extreme pressure.

Besides, the conflict between the US and Russia is preventing them from improving上海后花园

bilateral relations. The actions of the US and Russia have further worsened their relations following their face

上海后花园女神会所off over the Ukraine crisis and the Syrian civil war, and led to multiple large-scale military exercises by both side

s in the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea in an apparent show of strength. Their withdrawal from the INF Treaty means the

ir tactical conflict has deteriorated into a strategic conflict, which has further jeopardized bilateral relations.上海后花园

Worse, the two countries’ moves could abort the international disarma

上海后花园女神会所ment process, because with the annulment of the INF Treaty, the US and Russia could dev

elop new intermediate-and short-range missiles without constraints, which in turn could trigger a new global arms race.

Also, the US’ withdrawal from the INF Treaty could set off a chain reaction, as it is almost certain that Washington will now d上海后花园女神会所

eploy intermediate-range missiles in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, heightening regional tensions and fuelli

上海后花园ng an arms race and geopolitical competition among major powers. The new arms race, which could prompt major

powers to build new types of smart weapons, would pose a severe threat to international peace and security.What is especi

ally surprising is that some Western observers want to drag China into the discussions on certain intern上海后花园

ational issues regardless of whether it is a party to such issues. Regarding the INF Treaty, which has play

上海后花园女神会所ed an important role in improving international relations, promoting nuclear disarmament, even safeguarding glo

bal strategic balance and stability, and therefore remains very much relevant and sig

nificant even today, China has made clear that it is opposed to not only the US’ unilateral w

ithdrawal from the treaty but also the West’s efforts to make it part of a new nuclear treaty.

Third, the AIIB’s adhere上海乌托邦ultilateralism and ope

上海乌托邦品茶微信set the bar at par with other multilateral development institutions and forged a good working relationship wit

The governance structure and decision-making process of the AIIB are based on multilateralism.

上海乌托邦品茶微信And despite China theoretically having a veto on significant issues by virtue of being the largest (ab

out 30 percent) shareholder, it has never used it even once-and would never use it without reason.

China has helped establish the AIIB to facilitate global development and regional con上海乌托邦

nectivity. And through the AIIB, China has been promoting constructive reforms in the global fin

上海乌托邦品茶微信ncial system and development institutions, without having any intention to replace them.

And fourth, the AIIB blueprint focuses on cautiously but professionally advancing development in a

ccordance with international standards, particularly because risk-aversion is the first rule of intern上海乌托邦

ational finance and it would be irresponsible to carry out random “social experiments” in global development.

上海乌托邦品茶微信The AIIB has prudently weighed the different and diverse requests from both developed and developing member econ

omies before taking any decisions so that the future of the projects are not jeopardized.

More important, the AIIB has improved its operations and strengthen上海乌托邦品茶微信

With the Office of the United States Trade Representative threatening to impose new tariff

sified. And if the US makes good the threat it issued on July 1, the additional tariffs would cover $25 billion of EU go

上海千花坊ods-in April the US had decided to impose additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU products. In addition, the US adm

inistration launched a Section 301 investigation against the digital service tax of France on July 10.

Washington’s move seems to have roots in the 15-year-old dispute over the su上海千花坊

sidies given to Boeing by the US and to Airbus by the EU. The US is using tariffs t

上海千花坊品茶微信o exert pressure on the EU to reduce subsidies to Airbus so Boeing can maintain its competitiveness in the global ma

rket and the jobs in the US plane manufacturing industry could be protected.

The US is wielding tariff as weapon also to increase its bargaining chips in the negotiations over “three zeros”-zero ta上海千花坊

riff, zero tariff barriers and zero subsidy-for non-auto industrial products.

Since the US and the EU have wide differences over auto and agri上海千花坊品茶微信

cultural products, the negotiations remain mired in uncertainty, although Washington com

pelled Brussels to continue the talks by threatening to impose fresh tariffs on EU goods in April.上海千花坊

As US President Donald Trump prepares to launch his re-election campaign, he is trying to mitigate US farmers’ sufferings, as the

votes from the agricultural belts helped him win the 2016 presidential election. The US administration has pro上海千花坊品茶微信

vided numerous subsidies for farmers to help offset their losses due to the US’ trade disputes with China, the EU and othe

r economies, but subsidies alone cannot solve the farmers’ problems. So Washington has put some EU agricu

ltural products on the tariff list in an effort to protect its agricultural products market.

However, the fact that the EU has agreed to resume negotiations on subsidies to the plane ma

nufacturing industry does not mean it will not take countermeasures if the US does impose mo

re tariffs on EU goods. In April, when the US levied additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU go

ods, Brussels responded by imposing tariffs on€20 billion ($22.43 billion) of US products.

desert rice’ shows adv上海后花园t of Chinese agricultur

Rice from China has been successfully planted in the deserts of Dubai, United Arab Emirates, a

nd its yield has hit a record high, leading to an agricultural breakthrough in the city.上海后花园品茶微信

The seawater rice yield reached 629 kilograms per mu (0.06 hectare), a result observed by experts from China and Dubai on J

u上海后花园ne 6. This yield is on par with the advanced level of international rice planting in desert areas and saline-alkali soil.

The sea rice project, launched by the Wuhan Haidao International Agricultural Development Co of Hubei province last O

ctober, broke the record for Dubai desert rice planting in terms of planting area and rice yield. This achi上海后花园

evement was praised by the ruler of Dubai and the Consulate-General of the People’s Republic of China in Dubai.

上海后花园Invited by Dubai, experts from the company provided all te

chnological services for seawater rice planting in Dubai’s deserts and deve

loped the proprietary “Haidao 86” rice species. They began their work in November.上海后花园品茶微信

Dubai has quite special agricultural, ecological and climate conditi

上海后花园ons. In other words, disadvantages — including low temperatures at night for the seeding stage

, high temperatures and dry winds in the earing period and low rainfall. The favorable period for rice growth is also quite

short. Any small mistake in cultivation may lead to failure, the Wuhan company said.上海后花园品茶微信

Barren soil, insects, bird strikes and shortage of water

have been major hindrances for rice planting in Dubai deserts, the上海后花园

company said, adding pesticides and inorganic nitrogenous fertilizers were not allowed in the project area.

上海后花园品茶微信In recent years, many domestic and international companies tried to plant rice in Dubai wi

thout satisfying results due to existing obstacles, said company investor Xie Xiaoqing.

But the experts finally succeeded by applying creative s上海后花园

eeding methods, scientific water management and strict growth process control.

The success of the project has presented the technological progress of Chinese agric上海后花园品茶微信

ulture to the world and benefited people across the globe, and will help in prom

oting both international cooperation and the sharing of agricultural technology, she added.

A nationwide immigration enforcement operation targeting people who are in the United S

上海419论坛品茶微信tates illegally is expected to begin this weekend after it was postponed last month by US President Do

nald Trump, according to two administration officials and immigrant activists.

The operation, which has sparked outrage and concern among immigrant-rights advocates, would上海419论坛

target people with final deportation orders, including families whose immigration cases were fast-t

racked by judges in 10 major cities, including Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Miami.上海419论坛品茶微信

The operation is similar to ones conducted regularly since 2003 that often produce hundreds of arrests. It is slightly unusual

上海419论坛品茶微信to target families, as opposed to immigrants with criminal histories, but it’s not unprecedented. The

Obama and Trump administrations have targeted families in previous operations.

Zhu Yue, chairman of China Health and Elderly Care Group who a

ttended the meeting, told China Daily that the economies of the China an

d Japan are highly complementary so cooperation will only be mutually beneficial.

Taking the elderly care sector as an example, Zhu said that China has a huge m

Liang’s comments came 上海楼凤S Department of

上海楼凤品茶微信Huawei was put on the US Entity List in May, which banned it from

buying technologies originating in the US without special government approval.

Liang said despite the US government “crackdown”, Huawei has achieved growth上海楼凤

The senior executive also explained that the company’s self-developed operating system Hong-Me上海楼凤

上海楼凤品茶微信”When it comes to operating systems for smartphones, Android and its open ecosystem is

still the top choice. It is undecided yet whether to use HongMeng for smartphones,” Liang said.

According to Huawei, the company will step up investments to ensure cybersecurity and protect users’ privacy.

In 2018, Huawei has evaluated 2,778 of its mainstream suppliers

for cybersecurity risks, and verified the progress of related corrective action plans上海楼凤

. It also signed a data protection agreement with 582 suppliers for privacy protection, and performed due diligence on

上海楼凤品茶微信these suppliers, said the 2018 Sustainability Report which Huawei unveiled on Friday.

Lyu Tingjie, a professor at Beijing University of Posts and Telecommun

onsistent research and development input will help it overcome all the challenges.上海楼凤

“But the US government has become the biggest source of uncertainty for the global electronics industry. It constantly chang

On Friday, Liang also highlighted Huawei’s determination to pursue green devel

opment by achieving innovation in the course of its 5G research, product development, and engineering.

Huawei has managed to reduce the 上海楼凤power consumption per 5G site to 20 percent less than the
