China firmly opposes the United States’ new threat to impose additional tariffs on about $550 billio
n worth of Chinese imports, a spokesperson of the Ministry of Commerce said on Saturday.In a brief statem上海419品茶微信
ent, the ministry said the US act is unilateral, trade protectionism, and using maximum pressure.It violates the con
上海419sensus reached between the top leaders of the two countries, severely under
mines the multilateral trading system and normal international trade order, and Washington will eat the bitter fruit
s of its own action, the ministry said.”Such unilateral and bullying acts of trade protectionism and extreme pres上海419品茶微信
sure run counter to the consensus of the heads of state of China and the United States, and run counter to the principles of
mutual respect, equality and mutual benefit,” the spokesperson said.The ministry urged Washington to imm上海419
ediately stop its wrongful deeds, otherwise it will “bear all the consequences.”The ministry warned the US a上海419
dministration not to misjudge the situation, nor to underestimate the determination of the Chinese peo
上海419品茶微信ple.”China strongly urges the United States not to misjudge the situation, or underestimate the determination of the Chi
nese people. It must immediately stop its erroneous practices, or bear all the consequences,” the spokesperson sa
id.ow dare it? That was the message from the United States leader, who, announ上海419
cing extra tariffs on $550 billion worth of Chinese imports, declared that China “should not” have put tariffs on a furth
er $75 billion of US products.Since China’s tariffs were in retaliation to the US’ tariffs on $300 billion of Chinese上海419品茶微信
imports, clearly what he described as a “politically motivated” move has put his nose out of joint.
System disruption hit Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) cont
inued into Friday with the airport operator taking steps to solve the disruption.上海419品茶微信
Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB), the company which manages most of the
上海419country’s airports including KLIA, said in a statement that all 38 remote bays at th
e main terminal were not able to proceed to the scheduled gates as they were still being occupied.
The operator had also provided additional buses to ferry passengers between the remote bay上海419品茶微信
s and the main terminal at the airport’s carpark.
“This is to ease the flow of passengers at the gates affected by the dela上海419
yed flights. We had also extended the operating hours at all our other airports nation
wide last night in order to cater to the delayed departing flights from KUL,” the statement said.上海419
“Please be informed that MAHB has made various efforts to improve the situation
上海419品茶微信including replacement of the defective hardware and MAHB has extended its working hours to resolve this
problem,” Malaysian Transport Minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook said in a statement.
上海419The disruption started on Wednesday night in several airport systems such as WiFi connection, Flight Information Disp
lay System (FIDS), check-in-counters and the Baggage Handling Systems (BHS).

hina will not revise its foreign exchange policies, as the United States labeling it “a currency manipulator” is unre
上海419品茶微信asonable and unlikely to get support from multilateral mechanisms, according to Chinese officials and analysts.
Based on available facts and evidence, it is unlikely that the International Monetary Fund — the most authoritative organization to arbitrate currency ma
nipulation — will stand by the US in accusing China of being a currency manipulator, they said. Without such suppo 上海419
rt from the multilateral organization, the US accusation will not hold up, they added.
上海419品茶微信An IMF spokesperson told China Daily on Thursday that “discussions
with the US Treasury Department are ongoing on a range of issues”. The “range of issues” is not c
onfined to the currency manipulation accusation, the spokesperson added.
The IMF had not yet sent a message requiring Beijing to start related negotiation 上海419
s regarding the accusation, two Chinese officials familiar with the matter told China Daily. The Chinese govern
上海419品茶微信ment maintains routine coordination and communication with the IMF, said the officials, on condition of anonymity.
The US Treasury Department wrote in a statement on Monday that it will engage with the IMF “to
eliminate the unfair competitive advantage created by China’s latest actions”. Hours before the US annou 上海419
ncement, the renminbi weakened beyond 7 per dollar for the first time since May 2008. Washington threatened earlier to sl
ap 10 percent tariffs on an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese goods beginning on Sept 1.
上海419品茶微信Li Chao, vice-chairman of the China Securities Regulatory Commission, said it is
“irresponsible” for the US administration to label China as “a currency manipulator”, as it not only viol
ates rules and common sense, but also causes damage to the US itself and stock markets of other economies. 上海419
“(The US labeling) triggered drastic fluctuations across g
上海419lobal financial markets,” Li said in an interview with Xinhua News Agency.
Mark Sobe, a former senior IMF official, told Reuters on T
uesday, “It’s ridiculous that they’ve declared China a currency manipulator. T 上海419品茶微信
hey don’t have any meaningful tools to do anything about it, unless they just want to pile more tariffs on.”

President Xi Jinping urged the Chinese military to continue reforming its policy system, saying this is crucial to building a world-class force.上海419
Xi, who is also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and
上海419品茶微信chairman of the Central Military Commission, said at a meeting of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Co
mmittee on Tuesday in Beijing that reforms of the military policy system are intended to resolve institutional hin
drances to allow the armed forces to better fit into their new roles and fulfill their new missions.上海419
He said the military must make all-out efforts to push forward reforms of its policy syste
上海419m, and he urged it to strengthen communication with service members to rally support for reforms.
Xi called for the military to integrate policy system reforms with other parts of the ong上海419品茶微信

and should also enhance research and appraisal work to facilitate reforms, he said.上海419品茶微信
Xi said the Party and central government must spare no efforts in supporting reforms a

In addition, the president recently gave citations and honorary titles to several military units and service members.
President Xi Jinping met twice on Monday with Sheikh Moha

The meeting took place at the Diaoyutai State Guesthou

Xi said that he and the crown prince had held very fruitful and successf

It’s quite rare that the two sides signed so many documents with such substantial content and c

Xi stressed that Chinese civilization, with a history of more than 5,000 years, has abs 上海419

The Belt and Road Initiative originated from the idea of global great unity, and it is d 上海419

For those who are concerned about China’s economic well-being, the first half-year fig
ures released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Monday may not be enough to relieve them of their worr上海419
ies, especially given the ongoing trade conflict with the United States and weakening global demand.
上海419After all, a 6.2 percent growth in the second quarter — although still within the gove
rnment’s target range of 6-6.5 percent for the year — was the weakest in nearly three decades.上海419
This, together with lukewarm trade readings released on Friday — exports fell 1.3 percent in June from a year earlier and imports dropped 7.3 percent — sugge
sts economic conditions are still severe and, with external uncertainties on the rise, the economy “is under new dow
上海419女神会所nward pressure”, as NBS spokesman Mao Shengyong said at a news conference.
But again, this is really a question of do you see the glass half empty or half full, given that
China remains one of the world’s fastest-growing major economies. While pessimists focus on the diffi
culties, optimists see the silver lining of the Chinese economy’s remarkable resilience given the headwinds it faces.上海419
For example, retail sales, a major gauge of consumption, surged 9.8 percent, much higher than the expected 8.5 percen
t and also the highest since March 2018. Many analysts attribute the progress to the central government’s ef
forts to boost domestic consumption — these range from massive tax cuts of nearly 2 trillion yuan ($291 billion) to the iss上海419女神会所
uance of 2.15 trillion yuan of special bonds by local governments for infrastructure construction.
上海419Other strong data, such as a 6.3-percent increase in industrial output an
d a 5.8-percent rise in January-June fixed asset investment, all indicate that the fund
amentals for steady growth remain unchanged and the government still has ample room for policy maneuvers.
Actually, once last month’s much-better-than-expected gains in retail上海419女神会所
sales, factory output and fixed-asset investment were announced, the market quickly cast its vot
上海419女神会所e of confidence in the Chinese economy. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index ended 0.4 percent up on Monday a
fter casting off losses that had pushed it down as much as 1.5 percent in the morning ahead of the data release.

President underlines two-way cooperation, strategic coordination
China and Turkey should enhance mutual strategic trust and respect each other’s core interests
and major concerns on such issues as sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, President Xi Jinping said on Tuesday.
Xi made the remark while meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. Previously, Xi hosted a welcoming ceremony for Erdogan.
Erdogan said that Turkey firmly supports the one-China policy, and that it is a fact that the people of all ethnicities in Xinjian
g are leading a happy life amid China’s development and prosperity. Turkey will not allow anybody to sow dissension among the two countries, he said.
Noting that both China and Turkey are important emerging markets and developin
g countries, Xi said it is of great significance for them to enhance strategic cooperation.
The two countries also should strengthen strategic coordination, consolidate the politica
l foundation of the China-Turkey strategic cooperation and cooperative relationship, a
nd ensure that the bilateral relations always operate on a healthy and stable track, Xi said.
China appreciates that Erdogan has reaffirmed his commitment many times to not allow any forces to carry out anti-Chinese or separatist activities in Turkey, Xi said.
China attaches great importance to Turkey’s stance of supporting China’s fight against te
rrorism, Xi said, adding that China would like to enhance their anti-terrorism cooperation.
Xi said the two sides should enhance connection of development strategies and deepen practical cooperation. Hailing Turkey as an important partner for join
tly building the Belt and Road, Xi said that China would like to speed up connecting the Belt and Road with Turkey’s Middle Corridor plan, and pro
mote the cooperation in areas including trade, investment, science, energy, infrastructure and major projects.
