enness has helped build comprehensive partnerships both with developing and developed economies. Besides, the AIIB has

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

h them including the World Bank, ADB and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.上海乌托邦

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

ed its governance capability in accordance with global norms, built an institutional cult

上海乌托邦ure, and formed dozens of professional teams. In the process, the bank has accumulated abundant expe

riences in investing in and maintaining sustainable infrastructure facilities. No wonder it has received the high

The infiltration charge上海后花园na are baseless. But

 Thiel is seeking to leverage the annoyance of the US Department of Defense and hawk

s in the administration that Google has withdrawn from some US defense projects after a backlash from its employees.上海后花园品茶微信

Google was targeted with similar accusations in March, when General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Sta

上海后花园ff, expressed such unfounded concerns about Google in a congressional hearing.

Google has repeatedly denied any relations with the Chinese government or the Chinese military.

In response to the latest charges, Riva Sciuto, a spokeswoman for Google, said: “As we have said before, we do not work wit上海后花园

h the Chinese military. We are working with the US government, including the Depar

上海后花园tment of Defense, in many areas including cybersecurity, recruiting and healthcare.”

It is irresponsible of the US leader to buy into Thiel’s allegations and cast aspersions

on China. Google has little business in China. But, to some extent, Thiel has just given him the excu上海后花园品茶微信

se he needs to cow Google ahead of the election campaign that is looming ever closer.

上海后花园The White House has growing concerns about Google’s influence ove

r internet searches and online advertising. It is reportedly mulling a crackd

own on Google for supposedly disadvantaging conservatives in search results.

But as shown by the recent controversial tweets against four congresswome上海后花园品茶微信

n by the White House, it is not going to let the truth and social niceties get in the way of its

attack on Google. As such, China has become a victim of US domestic politics, as it ha上海后花园品茶微信

s been put in the cross-fire between the White House and the internet giant.

The baseless charges against China do a disservice to the efforts of those working hard to hammer out the details of a trade deal.

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

s on $4 billion worth of European Union goods, the trade conflict between the US and the EU has inten上海千花坊品茶微信

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.

In February, Washington suspended its participation in the treat

上海夜生活y, saying it would quit the deal on Aug 2 if Russia does not return to compliance.

Moscow denied the allegation it violated the treaty and a

ccused Washington of breaking the accord, which the US likewise denied.上海夜生活

On July 3, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a bill that suspends the country’s par

上海夜生活女神会所ticipation in the treaty. The decree was passed by the Russian parliament last month.

The INF Treaty, which was signed by US president Ronald Reagan and Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987, has been c

onsidered a landmark arms control agreement. It bans Russia and the US from possessing, producing or c上海夜生活

onducting test flights of ground-launched cruise missiles and ballistic missiles

with a range of 500 to 5,500 kilometers. The treaty caps the number of deployed warheads at 1,550 for each side.上海夜生活女神会所

In an article in Arms Control Today, a monthly magazine on nonprolif

eration and global security, Daryl G. Kimball, executive director of the US-based Arms Cont上海夜生活

rol Association, suggested that the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, also known as New START, be extended for f

ive years in order “to provide a foundation for a more ambitious successor agreement”.

上海夜生活女神会所”Without New START, there would be no legally binding, verifiable limits on the US or Ru

ssian nuclear arsenals for the first time in nearly half a century,” Kimball said.

New START was signed by Russia and the US in 2010 and took effect in 20

11. It replaced the 1991 START I treaty, which expired in 2009, and superseded the 2002

Strategic Offensive Reductions Treaty, which was terminated when New START took effect.

New START limits the US and Russia to 1,550 deployed warheads on 700 deployed delivery vehicles for long-range, strategic n

uclear warheads. Both sides have reduced their forces, meeting the mandated limits in February last year. If Mosco

w and Washington don’t come to an agreement on an extension, the agreement could die in 2021.

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

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