There was a “China is not an enemy” open letter to the US president recently in The Wa
亚博app官方下载安卓千花网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亚博app官方下载安卓千花网女神会所
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.”亚博app官方下载安卓千花网
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亚博app官方下载安卓千花网女神会所
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.”亚博app官方下载安卓千花网
The wrong crowd cannot represent you, and you are the most unique if you avoid the crowd and turn back now.

China reiterated that United States accusations that it hasn’t yet beg

ybeans, adding there are some pending deals due to the lack of price competitiveness.

First, China has undisputable sovereignty over islands and their surrounding waters in the South China Sea, backed by a wealth of historical and legal basis,” Shao said.
For a long period of time, various nations’ normal passage and flight in the region have never been obstructed. “There i
s no issue over the freedom of navigation and overflight in the South China Sea,” he said.
However, the US has frequently sent vessels and aircraft to trespass into Chinese mar
itime territory and airspace, and has conducted intense intelligence gathering and special drills in the region.
“These actions damage the peace and security of the region,” Shao said. “As a result, the PLA
has installed necessary defense equipment on the islands in accordance with security needs. This is within
the natural rights of a sovereign state, and a necessary measure to counter those provocative actions.”

e US tariff hikes therefore will increase the economic pain of the US and world economies.
Agricultural products, chemicals and chemical products, textiles and g

nerals, jewelry and precious metals declined by more than 85 percent in the first quarter.
