The “contraction” trend is becoming increasingly prominent in the United States’ foreign policy thanks to its “Am

erica first” approach. Once the major provider of global public goods, the US is becoming a penny-pinching country focu

?亚愽娱乐官网网址乌托邦sed solely on its national interests and thus weakening its international leadership.

Yet despite the contraction of its diplomacy, the US has gone on th

e offensive on particular issues, trade being the most prominent. Launching tra?亚愽娱乐官网网址乌托邦

de wars against nearly all major economies such as China, the European Union and Japan, the White House is

using the trade brawls to appeal to the US leader’s base even though tariff-slapping at will, and?亚愽娱乐官网网址乌托邦品茶微信

without any reason, goes against established trade practices and the World Trade Organization’s rules.

?亚愽娱乐官网网址乌托邦Besides, the US administration has shown an inclination toward revisionism on the Taiwan question, with a number of pro-Taiwan of

ficials holding key decision-making positions in the US. The US leader’s phone call to Taiwan leader Tsai Ingwe

n and his statement to substantially improve “US-Taiwan relations”, together with the US’ other provocativ

e moves including sailing aircraft carriers through the Taiwan Straits and endorsing laws such as the Taiwan Tr?亚愽娱乐官网网址乌托邦品茶微信

vel Act and Asia Reassurance Initiative Act of 2018 are all aimed at checking the Chinese mainland’s rise.

Since the US could try to ratchet up tensions across the Straits and

some separatist elements on the island could deman?亚愽娱乐官网网址乌托邦d “Taiwan independence” in a bid to r

estrain the mainland, Beijing should be fully prepared to deal with any eventuality.

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.亚愽娱乐官网网址乌托邦品茶微信

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.亚愽娱乐官网网址乌托邦品茶微信

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”.

亚愽娱乐官网网址乌托邦”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亚愽娱乐官网网址乌托邦

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亚愽娱乐官网网址乌托邦品茶微信

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

亚愽娱乐官网网址乌托邦品茶微信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”.

The downgrade in the forecast was attributed to the negative impact of prolonged pr

Boris Johnson has won the United Kingdom’s leadership election 92,153 vo

Johnson had been widely expected to win ever since Theresa May, the nation’s outgoing prime minister, announced on May 24

that she was resigning following heavy criticism of her handling of the UK’s exit from the European Union.

亚愽娱乐官网网址乌托邦In a short but impassioned acceptance spee

ch, Johnson thanked his leadership opponent Jeremy Hunt and May. He said that the p

arty will “deliver Brexit, reunite the country and defeat” the leader of the opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn.

“That’s what we are going to do,” Johnson sai亚愽娱乐官网网址乌托邦品茶微信

d. “We know that we can do it, the people in our country know that we can do it, and I know that we will do it.”

Johnson and Hunt were the last people standing in the leadership battle that had initially involv

Johnson takes over as party leader immediately and will be sworn in as prime minister on Wednesday.

He was an outspoken critic of May and says he will take the UK out of the EU on Oct 31, with or without a deal with the political bloc.亚愽娱乐官网网址乌托邦品茶微信

Following the result, May congratulated Johnson and said he will have her “full support from the back benches”.

Responding to remarks by the United States, United Kingdom and the European
