ents of Hong Kong have shown their patriotism by raising the national flag again. As the flag ascended to the top of
亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊the pole, these patriots sang China’s national anthem and many passers-by stopped to join them.
A comparison of the two sides shows who truly loves Hong Kong. The rioters are damaging everything and they want to turn the pr
亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊女神会所osperous city into a place of chaos and disorder. If they were to get their way, Hong Kong residents would
have to live in fear, while the Hong Kong economy would be severely damaged, because few tourists would want to travel
to a city full of violence while no investor would be willing to put their money into the SAR.亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊
Fortunately, there are patriotic residents in Hong Kong, who hope to restore normal order to their home city s
亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊o that everybody can work hard and enjoy their peaceful daily lives here. It is their efforts that will save Hong Kong from falling
into economic decline and social disorder, and it is their courage that shows the world the true attitude of the
majority of Hong Kong people who do not support the violent and radical deeds of a few “protestors”.亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊女神会所
The majority of the Hong Kong people want peace, order, and a prosperous home. The rioters’ are threatening their normal lives.
亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊The future of Hong Kong lies in the hands of these patriotic residents. T
he riots have brought untold suffering and losses to the city, but with the efforts of all pa
triots in the city, Hong Kong will see a good recovery quickly after order is restored.
China will further enhance its strategic strength with strong bottom-line亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊女神会所
thought, follow its own pace in developing its economy and will not compromise in the

bilateral trade talks in Shanghai, which had been described as “constructive” by both sides.亚愽娱乐官网网址千花坊女神会所
The plan will put additional tariffs on virtually all Chinese products entering the US except for medicines.
The US goal in imposing new tariffs is to build a global industrial chain and technology advantage led by that country, experts said.

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

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.
The SAR government, in a statement issued at around 6 pm on Sunday, said Hong Kong will descend to a d

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The tariff plan’s biggest influence on China is that the country’s participation in th

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

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

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

亚愽娱乐官网网址会所Among of the top 10 provincial level regions with the highest spending on consumption, the figure of Southeast Chin
a’s coastal provinces accounted for a half, including Shanghai, Zhejiang, Guangdong, Jiangsu, and Fujian, with the pe
亚愽娱乐官网网址会所品茶微信capita consumption expenditure in the five regions exceeding the national average level.
Shanghai’s wholesale and retail sales jumped 9 percent year-on-year t

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

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

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

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