Hong Kong saw two very different crowds on Saturday afternoon. On was made up of 90,000 people who assembled peacefully in Victoria Park in Causeway Bay.亚愽娱乐官网网址419论坛

Observers called the peaceful, positive rally, the third of its type since mid-June, the silent majority’s answer to the radica

亚愽娱乐官网网址419论坛女神会所bout 480,000 people voicing their shared aspirations of restoring peace and harmony to the city.

The damp lawns of Victoria Park were packed with participants. At one point in the pub

lic rally, youngsters took the stage to remove their masks to reveal their identities in stark contrast to masked radicals.亚愽娱乐官网网址419论坛

Emma Chan Ming-kwan took her 13-year-old son to the rally in hopes of teaching him “to tell right from wrong”.

“Biased school education and media reports have failed to warn youngsters about the consequences of violence,” she said.

At about the same time in the Kowloon Peninsula, one of the city’s busiest business dist亚愽娱乐官网网址419论坛

top leader guides test亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊of new-type rocket sys

Kim Jong-un, top leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), again guided the test-firing of “a newly-developed large-caliber multiple la

亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊unch guided rocket system” on Friday, the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported Saturday.

The report said Kim guided the test-firing at the observation post “early in the Friday morning,” without mentioning the site where the test-firing took place.

The test-firing “satisfactorily confirmed the altitude control level flight performance, trac亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊

k changing capability, accuracy of hitting a target and warhead explosion power of the guided ordnance rocket,” said KCNA.

亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊According to the report, Kim expressed “great satisfaction” with the result of the test-firin

g, saying that “another Juche-oriented weapon planned and so desired by the Party has been made.”

Kim also guided the test-firing of the weapon system on Wednesday, when he emphasiz

亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊ed that the system has “a great strategic significance” for boosting the combat capability of the country’s army.

The European Union’s disagreement with the United States over Iran widened when the EU vowed on Thursday to co

ntinue working with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif despite the latest US sanctions against him.亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊

The US Treasury Department announced on Wednesday its sanctions on Zarif. “Javad Zarif implements the reckless agenda of Iran’s S

upreme Leader, and is the regime’s primary spokesperson around the world,” US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a st

亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊atement. The US put sanctions on Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on June 24.

“We regret this decision,” said Carlos Martin Ruiz De Gordejuela, a spokesman for EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.

“From our side, we will continue to work with Mr Zarif as Iran’s most senior diplom

at and in view of the importance of maintaining diplomatic channels,” he said, as quoted by the Agence France-Presse.亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊

The EU has been trying to salvage the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Actio

n (JCPOA) that was reached in July 2015 by Iran and China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom and the US. US

亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊President Donald Trump pulled the US out of the deal last May and reimposed sanctions

on Iran, endangering the implementation of the agreement also endorsed by the UN Security Council.

Hua Changchun, an analyst with Guotai Junan Securities, said the biggest impact of the US planned ne亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊女神会所

Ex-legislator targets US, ‘pro-Taiwan independence’ forces and liberal studies亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊女神会所

The United States and “pro-Taiwan independence” forces are to blame for recent tu

rmoil in Hong Kong, according to a former Hong Kong member of the Standing Committee of the National P

亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊eople’s Congress, who said links between the violent vandals and external forces have surfaced.

The observation by Rita Fan Hsu Lai-tai, who served in the nation’s top legislature, cam

e after repeated protests over a now-suspended extradition bill in the past two months.亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊女神会所

The ulterior motive is to throw Hong Kong into major turmoil, the former pr

esident of the Legislative Council told China Daily in an exclusive interview on Thursday.

亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊”When Hong Kong is in a chaotic state, the US can unsettle China, while people from Taiwan in favor of independence

will say ‘one country, two systems’ is not applicable to Taiwan because it is a failure in Hong Kong,” Fan said.

“Due to the rapid rise of China, the US always sees China as a big threat.亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊

If Hong Kong is unsettled, the city will lose its functions of contributing to the nation’s

development, with the trade dispute being one of the US tactics to unsettle China.

亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊女神会所”In addition, the US and other Western powers can criticize China for not doing well e

nough to maintain implementation of ‘one country, two systems’ unchanged for 50 years,” she said.

The administration said 亚愽娱乐官网网址419论坛s gold reserves increas

d to $87.27 billion by the end of June, up from $79.32 billion in January. China had the

亚愽娱乐官网网址419论坛world’s sixth-largest gold reserves by the end of 2018 with a total of 1,852 metric tons.

“In 2019, the major task of foreign exchange management is to enhance mid-and long-term ass

亚愽娱乐官网网址419论坛品茶微信et allocation and optimize and adjust investment strategies,” the administration’s report said.

The administration also for the first time disclosed the currency composition

of the country’s foreign exchange reserves in the annual report. The reserves denom亚愽娱乐官网网址419论坛

inated by the US dollar accounted for 58 percent of the total by the end of 2014, down from 79 percent in 1995.

Among global foreign exchange reserves, US dollar-denominated assets m

亚愽娱乐官网网址419论坛品茶微信ade up 65 percent of the total by 2014, up from 59 percent in 1995, according to the report.

“China’s forex reserve currency structure is diversified, even more diversified than the world’s average level,” Wang said. “It is in line

with requirements of China’s economic and trade development, as well as the demand of international payments.”亚愽娱乐官网网址419论坛品茶微信

For China, most of the foreign exchange reserves, nearly 60 to 70 percent, are held as sovereign debt from

亚愽娱乐官网网址419论坛advanced economies as well as financial and corporate bonds with high credit ratings, experts said.

“Forex reserves will continually play an important role in cushioning deprecia

tion pressure on the renminbi and maintain a balance of international payments,” said Zhao.亚愽娱乐官网网址419论坛品茶微信

But it is quite unlikely for the People’s Bank of China, the central bank, to influenc

e the renminbi exchange rate through selling of foreign exchange reserves, even if t

亚愽娱乐官网网址419论坛品茶微信he currency may be under depreciation pressure amid global monetary easing, he added.

As of the end of June, China’s foreign exchange reserves stood at $3.12 trillion, up from $3.10 trillion by May, according to central bank data.
