What’s happening in 上海乌托邦e world next week

Chinese officials and experts have urged politicians in the United States to stop using the situat

ion in Hong Kong as a bargaining chip for negotiations or as leverage for fueling competition with Beijing.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Senior politicians such as US Vice-President Mike Pence and House Speaker Nancy Pel

osi have spoken out on or pushed legislation concerning the recent violent protests in the city.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Pence angered China on Monday by telling the Detroit Economic Club that “for the Un

ited States to make a deal with China”, Beijing needs to “respect the integrity of Hong Kong’s laws”.

上海乌托邦”Our administration will continue to urge Beijing to act in a humanitarian manner,” Pence added.

In response, the Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner’s Office in the Hong Kong Special A

dministrative Region said on Tuesday that China resolutely opposes any country attempting to “take Hong Kong’s s上海乌托邦

tability and prosperity as well as the well-being of more than 7 million Hong Kong residents as a bargaining chip”.

“Do not daydream about China making a deal using its territorial sovereignty and national reunification,” an unnamed spokesperson上海乌托邦品茶微信

said in a statement, calling for a halt to intervention in China’s domestic affairs, including Hong Kong affairs.

On Aug 6, Pelosi said in a written statement that “the extraordinary outpourin

上海乌托邦品茶微信g of courage from the people of Hong Kong stands in stark contrast to a cowardly government”, and she reite

rated her call for suspending “future sales of munitions and crowd control equipment to the Hong Kong police force”.

When Brenda Kazule returned to Zambia after completing her master’s degree at the Institute of South-South Cooperation and

上海419品茶微信Development at Peking University in June last year, she had a thick book in her unwieldy luggage.

Kazule, a traditional-affairs officer from Muchinga province, said the book — Xi Jinping: The Governance of China — is import

ant to her because it gave her insights about China’s development as well as the governing of the world’s most popu上海419

lous country by the Communist Party of China, and she wanted to share it with her colleagues.

Since Xi Jinping was elected as general secretary of the CPC Central Committee in November 2012 and p上海419品茶微信

resident of China in March 2013, the country’s diplomacy has opened new prospects and achieved new progress.

上海419The book is a collection of several dozen speeches and essays by Xi on a variety of topics. It interprets the concepts and prin

ciples of the top CPC leadership’s governance and also helps foreign people better understand China’s development

path, its domestic and foreign policies and responses to international concerns about the country.上海419品茶微信

上海楼凤ording to a statement released by RYB Education, a preschool education provider headquartered in Beijing.

Earlier last month, another incident involving foreign teachers caused outrage, when 16 foreign nationals-se

ven teachers from the Xuzhou branch of EF Education First and nine stu上海楼凤女神会所

dents from nearby schools-were among 19 people detained in Xuzhou, Jiangsu pro

vince, during an anti-narcotics crackdown, according to the local public security bureau.上海楼凤

EF Education First, an international company that specializes in language train

上海楼凤ing, issued a statement saying that it forbids employees to possess or use narcotics or controlled substances, and th

e contracts of the teachers would be terminated if they were found to have been involved in illegal drug use.

The incidents triggered a flood of posts on social media platforms, with some dema上海楼凤女神会所

nding that the establishments be closed, while others called for the teachers to be deported.

But even if that happens, more foreign teachers will follow in their wake because the soaring de上海楼凤

mand for English-language teachers means that finding a job is little more than a formality for many foreigners.

Last year, 300 million people in China were learning English, according to the Chinese Acad

上海楼凤女神会所emy of Social Sciences, which noted that there were 50,000 English-language teaching estab

lishments in the country and the market was worth as much as 500 billion yuan ($71 billion).

However, according to the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs, of the 400,000 foreign nationals wo上海楼凤

According to a regulation issued by SAFEA, all foreign teachers mu上海楼凤女神会所

n May, a medical team 上海千花网zed by the Re

d Cross Society of China arrived in Kabul again, marking the beginning of the project’s second phase. It is expected that an add

itional 150 Afghan children with congenital heart disease will be selected after screening in Ka 上海千花网品茶微信

bul and then sent to hospitals in China for treatment, said Liu Xuanguo, vice-president of the CRCF.

In addition to Afghanistan, the foundation has provided h 上海千花网

umanitarian assistance to 26 countries in Asia and Africa in recent years. Among the pro

 上海千花网jects, it has established emergency centers in Pakistan, provided free diagnosis and treatment to children with co

ngenital heart disease in Afghanistan and Mongolia, built a blood dialysis center in B

angladesh, constructed mobile hospitals for Syria and Iraq and donated rescue vehicles in Cambodia and Laos, he said. 上海千花网

“Most of the programs have been carried out since 2017, follow

ing the proposal of the Belt and Road Initiative (in 2013),”

Liu said. “Humanitarian assistance is badly needed in many countries involved in the 上海千花网品茶微信

initiative. Although much smaller in scale compared with international assistance delivered by the Chinese gov

ernment, China Red Cross humanitarian assistance has played a very important role in promoting frie

 上海千花网ndship between China and these countries, and emotional connectivity between different peoples.”

For example, a foundation project that has provided free treatment in Chinese hospitals over the past two years to 100 Mo

ngolian children under age 14 with congenital heart disease has won high praise from the Mongolian government a 上海千花网

nd was recognized as one of the best humanitarian assistance projects in the country last year, Liu said.

In June, another Chinese medical team arrived in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia, to screen around 100 of the m

ost urgent cases of congenital heart disease for free treatment in Hohhot, the capital of 上海千花网品茶微信

the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, and in Wuxi, Jiangsu province.

In neighboring Pakistan, an emergency center established by the foundation in Gwadar in 上海千花网

cooperation with the Pakistani Red Crescent Society has also won the praise of locals, Liu said.

As of the end of April, three medical assistance teams sent by the Red 上海千花网品茶微信

Cross Society of China had been to the center in Gwadar since its establishment in Sep

tember 2017. Large numbers of Chinese employees work there to assist with various projects.

If the violence further escalates, Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability will suffer a severe blo

Wilson Lee Flores, a columnist at The Philippine Star, said the continued chaos in Hong Kong, apparently created by an

what is happening in Hong Kong is now devolving into extreme violence.

British adventurer com上海龙凤earlong Yangtze walk

A British explorer is claiming to be the first person to walk the length of the Yangtze River in China after enduring fr

eezing temperatures, blistering heat, and altitudes of more than 5,000 meters during his epic trek.上海龙凤品茶微信

Ash Dykes, from Old Colwyn in North Wales, finished the 6,437-kilometer jo

上海龙凤urney on Monday after he was delayed by a couple of days because of Typhoon Lekima.

The 28-year-old said he felt great after crossing the finish line in

Shanghai, where he was greeted by family, media, and Chinese supporters.上海龙凤品茶微信

“As soon as I was on the final stretch, people started to join and we sort of ran to the finish and popped the champagne,” Dykes said.

The expedition took two years to plan and 352 days to complete.

At the start of the trek, the source of the Yangtze River was difficult to上海龙凤

reach and four members of his team left the expedition before it began because of al

titude sickness. There were also fears over the possibility of bear and wolf attacks.

“One day, I was told by locals that a woman was killed by a pack of上海龙凤品茶微信

wolves and for the next two days we were followed by a pack of wolves, so that was very int

imidating,” Dykes said. “We thought bears would leave us alone but the locals told us otherwise … so we would try and shel上海龙凤

ter with the locals or, if I was in my tent, I wouldn’t get food out. We had to stay alert and focus.”

He said he wanted to use his journey to highlight conservation projects by partne上海龙凤品茶微信
