ministrative Region (HKSAR) government and police have condemned illegal assemblies by protesters in Ko
上海419品茶微信wloon and the New Territories and said that police will strictly enforce the law against all violent and illegal acts.
The HKSAR said on Saturday that protesters who breach the law should be brought to justice, while the police reiter上海419

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said in a report on Friday that the yuan’s exchange r
ate was “broadly in line with medium-term fundamentals” and China’s central bank “has had little foreign exch上海419品茶微信
ange interventions in recent years”, a conclusion that clarifies China’s innocence from currency manipulation.

hina will continue to pursue green development, President Xi
上海419Jinping said in a congratulatory letter to the Seventh Kubuqi International Desert Forum on Saturday.
China has placed great emphasis on building an ecological civilizatio
上海419品茶微信n and made great headway in the prevention and control of desertification, Xi said in the
letter to the opening ceremony to the two-day forum, which was held in Ordos, the Inner Mongolia autonomous region.
Containing desertification in the Kubuqi Desert allows the world to see China’s experience in env上海419
ironmental treatment as well as the country progressing toward the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Su
上海419品茶微信stainable Development goals, he said, adding that China actively promoted alignment between international co
operation on the Belt and Road Initiative and the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
“The Earth is the only home to human beings, and anti-desertification is a great cause closely related to human develo上海419
pment,” Xi said. “China also stands ready to work with all sides to push forward global environmental gover
nance and protection, and contribute to making the world a place with a well-preserved ecology.”
上海419品茶微信To implement the agenda, Xi called for concerted efforts from the international communit
y to enhance cooperation in combating desertification and promote global environmental governance.
Antonio Guterres, secretary-general of the United Nations, sent a congratulatory letter to the上海419

上海419nvironment. He said that the forum is an opportunity to share success stories in and beyond China.
China is a country that has been threatened by the encroachments of deserts. The country has the world’s largest area of上海419品茶微信
desert, covering 2.61 million square kilometers, accounting for a quarter of its total land.
City has ‘good conditions’ for hosting negotiations, ministry spokesman says
上海419Top negotiators from China and the United States will meet in Shan
ghai on Tuesday and Wednesday for the first time since President Xi Jinping and his US coun
terpart Donald Trump agreed in June to resume economic and trade consultations. 上海419女神会所
Analysts said that holding the 12th round of talks in Shanghai, the c
上海419ountry’s financial hub, will help the US have a more direct understanding of China — a nation
that is determined to further open up. Previously, the trade talks in China took place in Beijing.
Ministry of Commerce spokesman Gao Feng said that holding the negotiations in different plac 上海419女神会所
es is not unusual. “Shanghai has good conditions for conducting consultations,” Gao said. 上海419
The meeting is expected to implement the consensus reached between the top leaders of both
上海419女神会所countries at the G20 Summit in Japan last month, Gao said at a regular news conference.

上海419ade Representative Robert Lighthizer will meet wi
th Vice-Premier Liu He to continue negotiations aimed at improving the bilateral trade re
lationship, the White House said in a statement on Wednesday. 上海419女神会所
Ni Yueju, a researcher at the Institute of World Econo
mics and Politics at the Chinese Academy of Soc
上海419ial Sciences, said Shanghai remains at the forefront of the country’s opening-up.
“The choice to hold the next round of trade talks in Shanghai demonstrates Chi

ntry’s first free trade zone was located in the municipality.
“The planned negotiations will mainly cover issues th
上海419at have not yet been resolved, for example, whether the US will lift tariffs o
n Chinese products and remove Chinese companies from a blacklist,” Ni said.
The US placed several Chinese companies, like t 上海419女神会所
elecommunications giant Huawei Technologies, on an Entity List tha
t prevents them from buying from US companies without Washington’s approval.
上海419″In the upcoming talks, the two sides may also discuss whe
ther China will resume its purchase of US agricultural products,” Ni said. 上海419女神会所
If both sides can negotiate on the basis of sincerity and equality, they may achi
eve some breakthroughs in addressing the aforementioned issues, Ni added.
The State Council Information Office on Sunday issued a white paper
上海419on historical matters concerning Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in northwest China.
China is a unified multiethnic country, and the various ethnic group上海419
s in Xinjiang have long been part of the Chinese nation. Throughout its long history, X
上海419injiang’s development has been closely related to that of China, the white paper said.
However, in more recent times, hostile forces in and outside China, especially se
paratists, religious extremists and terrorists, have tried to split China and bre上海419品茶微信
ak it apart by distorting history and facts, the document, titled “Historical Matters Concerning Xinjiang”, said.
上海419Xinjiang has long been an inseparable part of Chinese territory. Never has it bee
n the so-called “East Turkistan.” The Uygur ethnic group came into being throug上海419品茶微信
h a long process of migration and integration, the white paper said, adding that it is part of the Chinese nation.
In Xinjiang, different cultures and religions coexist, and ethnic cultures have been fostered and developed in the embrac上海419
e of the Chinese civilization. Islam is neither an indigenous nor the sole belief system of the Uygur people. It has ta
ken root in the Chinese culture and developed soundly in China, the document said.上海419品茶微信
The surge in religious extremism around the world has caused a rise in religious extremis
上海419m in Xinjiang and has resulted in an increasing number of incidents of terror and violence, it noted.
“Xinjiang’s fight against terrorism and extremism is a battle for justice and civilization
against evil and barbaric forces. As such it deserves support, respect and understanding,” it said.上海419品茶微信
The document said that some countries, organizations and individual
上海419s that apply double standards to terrorism and human rights have issued unjustified
criticism of Xinjiang’s effort. This kind of criticism betrays the basic conscience and j上海419品茶微信
ustice of humanity, and will be repudiated by all genuine champions of justice and progress, it said.
Washington’s countervailing measures on Chinese imports violate body’s laws
The United States has challenged the authority of the World Trade Organization by ignoring a上海419
WTO ruling, and such a move may escalate trade tension with China, experts said on Wednesday.
上海419品茶微信The WTO announced on Tuesday that the revised countervailing measures imposed by t
he US on imports of certain products from China were inconsistent with WTO laws.
However, the US failed to comply with the WTO ruling and上海419
accused China of “using State-owned enterprises to subsidize its economy”.
上海419The WTO mechanism is what members use to settle trade disputes, and countries in most cases abide by the rulings made by th
e organization, said Xue Rongjiu, deputy director of the China Society for WTO Studies.上海419品茶微信
“If member economies don’t follow this procedure, the rule-based global multilateral system
will be damaged and threatened by protectionism,” Xue said, adding that under such circumstances, some
上海419members may be forced to also use trade as a geopolitical weapon to ensure their interests.
Upholding the findings of a WTO dispute panel made public in March 2018, a WTO appellate body ruled that the US acted inc
onsistently with its provisions of subsidies and countervailing measures agreement.上海419品茶微信
The Ministry of Commerce urged the US to take immediate and concrete
action to “correct the wrong practices” in the anti-subsidy investigation against China and to c
上海419reate a fair and stable international trading environment for companies from both countries.
“Although both the panel of experts and the appellate body in this case
have ruled that the US countervailing measures violate WTO rules and asked the US to c上海419品茶微信
orrect its action, the US didn’t comply with the WTO ruling and continued to adopt tra上海419
de remedy measures against Chinese products in recent years,” the ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.
