ul is exploring all options in the trade dispute including scrapping an intelligence sharing pact.

亚愽娱乐官网网址会所On Saturday, some radical protesters in the Hong Kong Special Administ

rative Region removed a national flag from a flagpole near Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Pi

er and tossed it into the harbor. The next morning, some local patriotic residents raised the flag again.亚愽娱乐官网网址会所品茶微信

It seems certain “protesters” in the Hong Kong SAR have been turning so radical that they are commi

亚愽娱乐官网网址会所tting illegal deeds. By removing the national flag from the flagpole and tossing it into the sea, they ha

ve openly broken the National Flag Law and insulted their own motherland. Their deeds make them more suitable for the

word “rioters” than “protesters” and it is time the local police of Hong Kong held them responsible for their illegal deeds.亚愽娱乐官网网址会所品茶微信

In Japan, a controversial statue symbolizing “comfort women” was withd

rawn from an art exhibition on Saturday after organizers received security threats.

亚愽娱乐官网网址会所Comfort women is a euphemism for those, many of them Korean, forced to work in Ja

pan’s World War II military brothels and is a highly emotional topic for people of both countries.

Japan says the issue was settled by past agreements and apologies but many ROK citizens say J亚愽娱乐官网网址会所

apan did not go far enough and have demanded further compensation for victims. The current flar

e-up over the issue comes during the recent trade dispute between the countries.

亚愽娱乐官网网址会所品茶微信Statue of a Girl Of Peace attracted a flood of complaints since Aichi Triennale, an internat

ional art exhibition being held in central Japan, opened just three days ago, organizers said.

The festival decided to remove the statue after it received “terror threats” by tele亚愽娱乐官网网址会所

phone and e-mail, Aichi Governor Hideaki Omura told a news conference on Saturday.

“Yesterday we also received a fax saying, ‘Get rid of it fast or else I’m亚愽娱乐官网网址会所品茶微信

going to bring a can of gasoline and cause some trouble,'” Omura said.

“When you put them side by side, you can see their shared cultural influen

“They are closely related, but this is the first time that they can be seen together,” he adds.

According to Huo Wei, an archaeology professor from Chengdu-based Sichuan Universit?亚愽娱乐官网网址会所

“The Tubo people introduced Buddhist art from the Tang regions an
