Possible missile deployment raising concerns in Asia-Pacific, Beijing says

The United States’ intention to deploy new missiles in the Asia-Pacific region has raised co 阿拉爱上海

ncerns, and China will take countermeasures if necessary, the Foreign Ministry and experts said.

 阿拉爱上海女神会所Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for the Foreign Ministry, said China will not “sit idly by” and wat

ch its interests being compromised if the US deploys intermediate-range missiles in the region.

She said China “will not allow any country to stir up trouble on 阿拉爱上海

our doorstep” and “will take all necessary measures to safeguard nati

onal security interests” in a statement published on the ministry’s website late on Monday. 阿拉爱上海女神会所

The comments came days after the US unilaterally withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty sig

ned with the Soviet Union in 1987, which banned land-based missiles with a range of 500 to 5,500 kilometers. 阿拉爱上海

Following the withdrawal, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said over the weekend

that he wanted to deploy midrange conventional missiles in the Asia-Pacific within months.

 阿拉爱上海Hua warned that international and region

al security will be severely undermined if the US insists on the deployment.

“For a long time, the US has been grossly interfering in the affairs of regional countries in the Asia-Pacific,” she said.

“Politically, it has tried to drive a wedge between them by promoting a so-ca 阿拉爱上海女神会所

lled Indo-Pacific strategy. It has adopted a selfish, beggar-thy-neighbor approach in econo

mic affairs while making military deployment and strengthening military allies in the region.”

 阿拉爱上海The US has been shifting blame by using China as an excuse on issues including the INF

Treaty and hyping up the so-called China missile threat in disregard of the facts, Hua said.

“Despite strong international opposition, the US chose 阿拉爱上海女神会所

to withdraw from the INF Treaty. Now it is hastily seeking to deploy interm

ediate-range missiles in Asia. This, in fact, reveals the real intention of the US withdrawal from the treaty,” she added.

on to defend its due interests and legitimate rights in international trade and economic cooperation, according to analysts.

The US has totally ignored the fact that China has been eager to resolve trade and economic issues through high-level official ta

lks and pledged to further expand market access for global businesses, said Liang Ming, a senior resea

rcher at the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation.

China has emphasized that the US should not use the tariff method. That is not just for China’s benefit; it is the rational choice a

ny country would make when facing unreasonable requests in trade, said Dong Yan, director of the inte

rnational trade office at the Institute of World Economics and Politics under the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

nment departments to enhance coordination as they implement various policies, Li said.

The premier attached great importance to such measures as reducing the rate of the value-add

ed tax, increasing the tax exemption for research costs and reforming individual income tax.

The measures should not only ease the tax burden for manufacturing

companies but also reduce taxes for construction enterprises, which provide a great nu

mber of jobs, Li said, adding that all industries should be covered by the benefits of tax cuts.

Li pledged more efforts to urge government departments and State-ow

ned enterprises to pay off their debts so that the effects of tax reduction are not diminished.

The government will take further measures to deepen reform and opening-up, encoura

ge innovation and entrepreneurship and promote fair competition, Li said, adding that co

mpanies should also seize the opportunity to promote high-quality growth.

Chinese tourist destinations are swearing by global standards to earn more revenue

Having traveled to more than 20 countries and regions, Shi Hui, 36, a unive

rsity lecturer in Shanghai, treasures the souvenirs he bought at each of the places.

Shi goes on at least one trip of about 20 days each year. The souvenirs help keep memor

ies of his experiences overseas fresh, and he proudly flaunts them to visitors to his home.

He also travels widely within the Chinese mainland, but does not feel co

mpelled to buy Chinese souvenirs. This is because most of them are made in Yiwu in Zheji

ang province, and appear somewhat similar to each other, lacking distinctive features in terms of style, design and mater

ials used. Worse, not all of them are authentic but shoddy, of low-end variety, he said.

ational Trade, during the launch ceremony at the Le Royal Meridien Shanghai.

The indoor play area is one of the latest attempts by Shimao to explore theme park business oppo

I’d like to see more films made in China reaching out to the world,” said American dir

ector Rob Minkoff, jury president at the main competition of the 2019 Beijing International Film Festival.

Best known for the celebrated Disney classic The Lion King, Minkoff has also directed a num

ber of animated films including Stuart LittleThe Haunted Mansion and Mr. Peabody & Sherman.

In a press conference held last Thursday, Minkoff said Beijing is the heart

of the Chinese film industry. The BIFF attracts film productions from around the world, boo

sting development of filmmaking. With a global jury panel, the festival has become an international affair.

In light of the remarkable progress made by online subscription services like Netflix

and Amazon, Minkoff thinks these platforms offer a promising alternative to big-budget Hollywood blockbusters.

Having closely worked with Netflix on an original animated series based on Anna Dewdney’s picture book franchise Llama Lla

ma, he thinks its business model guarantees more liberty for the creator, thereby leading to more eclectic content.

dumping of solid waste, especially hazardous waste, along the Yangtze River, will be continued, he said.

Wang, of the NPC committee, also called for more government support to encourage in

vestment from both State-owned and private companies into the hazardous waste treatment sector.

Facilities for hazardous waste disposal should be mandatory at all ind

ustrial parks. And while they should be included into planning for new parks, the constr

uction of such facilities should begin as soon as possible in parks with inadequate facilities, he suggested. Land should b

e set aside so that it could be used to increase processing capacity to meet potential demand, Wang said.

He also suggested making the disclosure of information about hazardous waste mandated by law i

n order to facilitate public supervision. The latest technological innovations such as big data, unm

anned aerial vehicles and remote monitoring should be adopted to tighten supervisory efficiency.
