ndia’s Minister of External Affairs Subrahmanyam Jaishankar and State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wan
g Yi shake hands on Monday in Beijing at the ending ceremony of the India-China High Level Media Forum上海419论坛
China is opposed to any unilateral actions that complicate the situa
tion in Kashmir, and called on both India and Pakistan to resolve related disputes t
hrough peaceful means, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Monday.上海419论坛女神会所
In a meeting with visiting Indian Minister of External Affairs Subrahmanyam Jaishank
ar, Wang said New Delhi’s announcement of the establishment of the Ladakh Union Territory, which in
上海419论坛volves Chinese territory, has challenged China’s sovereign rights and interests.
The announcement is neither valid in relation to China nor will it change the status
quo that China exercises sovereignty and effective administrative jurisdiction over the territory, Wang said.上海419论坛
Jaishankar’s three-day China visit, which began on Sunday, came days after Pakist
ani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi traveled to Beijing amid a Kashmir
crisis following India’s decision to revoke the special status of India-controlled Kashmir last week.上海419论坛女神会所
Wang said China is highly concerned about the current Kashmir situation and the escalating India-Pakistan conflict. N
ew Delhi’s move to end the constitutional status of India-controlled Kashm
ir will change the status quo of the disputed area and will result in a tense situation in the region, he added.上海419论坛
Wang urged India and Pakistan to resort to peaceful dialogu
e to resolve their disputes and jointly safeguard peace and stability in the region.
Saying India’s move doesn’t conform to the agreement between Beijing a上海419论坛女神会所
nd New Delhi in upholding peace and tranquillity along the border between the two count
ries, Wang proposed that India should do more to help enhance mutual trust and safeguard peace and stability in th
e bordering areas so as to avoid unnecessary disturbance of Sino-Indian relations.上海419论坛
Jaishankar said India’s amendment to its constitution in terms of the Kashmir is
sue will not result in a new claim of sovereignty, will not change the cease-fire li上海419论坛女神会所
e between India and Pakistan and will not change the line of actual control along the China-India border.
China’s courier sector keeps steady expansion in the
上海419论坛first half of the year (H1), according to the State Post Bureau (SPB) Thursday.
The combined revenue of the sector in domestic market hit 21上海419论坛

Sun Yuchen, or Justin Sun, the 29-year-old cryptocurrency entrepreneur and this year’s Warren Buffett lunch winner, apologized
for his excessive marketing and publicity stunt on the Chinese social media platform Weibo on Thursday.上海419论坛
Sun said the lunch meeting came from his admiration of Warre

上海419论坛女神会所y to promote the blockchain industry, though it turned out to be an overblown marketing attempt.
The Chinese entrepreneur won the auction for this year’s Buffett lun

South Korea – An internal balcony at a nightclub in South Korea collapsed on Saturday, killing two 上海419论坛
people and injuring 16 including American and other athletes at the world swimming championships, officials said.
上海419论坛女神会所Hundreds were at the nightclub in the southern South Ko
rean city of Gwangju when the collapse occurred next to the athletes’ village.
Two South Korean men died while 16 others were injured, police
said. According to a police account, the injured include 10 foreigners, eight of them ath 上海419论坛
letes who were in Gwangju to participate in the swimming championships.
上海419论坛女神会所Among the athletes were three Americans, two New Zealande
rs, one Dutch, one Italian and one Brazilian, a police officer said, requesting anonymity ahe
ad of an official announcement. He said most had minor injuries but an American female water polo player requ 上海419论坛
ired surgery. The other two Americans — a man and a woman — are also water polo players, the police officer said.
Police said they detained one of the nightclub’s co-owners and summoned three othe
上海419论坛女神会所r club officials to investigate whether the collapsed balcony was an unauthorized structure.
“This is an awful tragedy,” said Christopher Ramsey, CEO of USA Water Polo. “Players from our
men’s and women’s teams were celebrating the women’s world 女神会所championship victory whe 上海419论坛
n the collapse occurred at a public club. Our hearts go out to the victims of the crash and their families.”
上海419论坛Among the Americans, Kaleigh Gilchrist suffered a deep left leg laceration and underwent surgery at a hospital in Gw

hina will adopt similar management standards for international students and Chinese stud
上海419论坛品茶微信ents to push for high-quality education for international students, the Ministry of Education said on July 20.
The ministry will ask universities to adopt similar standards for all
students, foreign and Chinese, in teaching, exam requirements, education resources and servic上海419论坛
es, said an unnamed official from the ministry’s department of international cooperation and exchanges.
上海419论坛Universities should also teach international students relevant laws and regulations in China, and students who viola
te those laws and regulations or commit crimes will be dealt with seriously, the official said.上海419论坛品茶微信
The ministry’s statement came after the alleged preferential treatment of interna
tional students at Shandong University recently sparked widespread criticism on social media.上海419论坛
The university apologized for an intercultural pr
ogram that matched foreign and local students of the opposite sex on campus.
上海419论坛品茶微信”We deeply regret the negative influence of this … we failed to do a proper job and inclu
ded ‘making foreign acquaintances of the opposite sex’ as an option in the program application,” it said.
According to a notice issued by the university last year, the university had paire
d 141 Chinese students with 47 foreign students, mainly of the opposite sex, under the “buddy program.”上海419论坛品茶微信
The notice was met with uproar online, with many netizens questioning why a uni
versity needed to help match up foreign students with members of the opposite sex.上海419论坛
Netizens also started to question other alleged favoritis
m given to international students at Chinese universities, such as generous govern上海419论坛品茶微信
ment scholarships, better dormitories and lower standards for them to pass exams.
Little has been revealed about what each party actually said during their lat
est conversation. But Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He’s phone call with US Trade Re上海419论坛
presentative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Tuesday has made headlines anyway.
上海419论坛女神会所Information available so far suggests the conversation was at least partly
about bringing the negotiators back to the negotiating table.
Although tentative, this surely is a constructive initial step toward building on the all-impor上海419论坛
tant outcome of the June 29 Osaka meeting between the Chinese and US leaders, which secured a pause in th
上海419论坛女神会所e two countries’ trade war. After all, this was the first high-level contact at the operational level since then.
Progress was made after the two leaders agreed to further negotiations when they met
in December, and it is to be hoped that will be the case after their consensus this time.上海419论坛
However, considering how the subsequent talks broke down, how the two part
上海419论坛女神会所ies responded, and what they want from each other, it would be advisable to be realistic about what to exp
ect, otherwise the trade impasse will be perpetuated and their respective economies will continue to suffer.
Both countries need and want a trade deal and fine trading ties. This is the understa上海419论坛
nding both countries have reached after a grueling year of tit-for-tat tariffs. Which is why, despite all the dr
上海419论坛女神会所awbacks, we remain convinced Beijing and Washington will indeed make every effort to find a way out.
While Beijing is fighting fiercely against the rising noise of “decoupling” the C
hinese and US economies, the latter appears equally anxious for that not to happen. If Beijing is driven mostly by con上海419论坛女神会所
cerns about looming economic woes, Washington has the 2020 election as an additional incentive.
But there is one crucial difference; the young man is not alone but wi
th his father. That scene coincides with the Chinese title of this TV series, namely “stud上海419论坛女神会所
ying abroad with daddy”. The plot depicts the lives of three young Chinese s
上海419论坛tudents and their fathers, or mothers, who accompany them to a developed cou
ntry. Predicaments then arise. Study problems, issues with the homestay family, exam cheating and a campus shooting. This has ignited responses fro
m viewers, with mixed voices including both positive and faultfinding critical comments.上海419论坛
Increasing numbers of Chinese students are opting to go abroad to further their studies in colleges and universities. According
上海419论坛女神会所to data from UNESCO, overseas Chinese students now account for
14 percent of the global total. China tops the rankings of international stu
dents, according to Xinhua News Agency, reaching 660,000 in 2018. Of these 596,300 are self-funded.
The TV series has attracted a huge number of viewers and “overseas stu上海419论坛女神会所
dents” is a hot topic for online comment. On Sina Weibo, the com
ments of the hashtag about the TV series have hit more than 1.1 million.上海419论坛
Few Chinese families are wealthy enough to dispatch a parent to help a student face the challenges of life overseas.
上海419论坛女神会所Lucy Zhu, for example, points to her own experiences. “One day, in my seni
or year, I was driving, but suddenly my car was hit by another car being driven by a US te
enager. I had to deal with all the case proceedings and the insurance claim every step of the way,” she recalls.上海419论坛
In more ways than one, being an overseas student means there is a great learning curve. Jane Yang, now a US citizen, from Heb
ei province, studied as an international student at the University of Minnesota in 1988. “The early years a上海419论坛女神会所
broad, looking back, made me a more independent, open-minded person,” she says.
To Zhang Shuwei, the 20-something producer of the series, “the keyword
is more ‘daddy’ than ‘study abroad”‘, since the plot also depicts the lives of the three pa上海419论坛女神会所
rents, who accompany their children. Audience response suggests that they would like to learn more about the st
udents and their travails. The show has a rating of 3.5 out of 5 on review site Douban.
Yet on the other hand, the struggles of the overseas students portrayed in the TV series s
till managed to reveal typical issues faced or experienced by Chinese students who study abroad.

上海419论坛During Li’s visit to Japan, the two sides signed 10 documents in areas such as cultural exchanges, medical care and public health, service trade, third-party ma
rket cooperation and building sea and air communication mechanisms, some of which have already yielded results.上海419论坛女神会所
And when Abe visited China, 12 cooperation documents－two agreements and 10 memorandums of unders
上海419论坛tanding－and 52 documents on the Belt and Road Initiative were signed between the two governments, and companies and org
anizations from either side. These documents and cooperation projects on infrastructure facilities, logistics, info
rmation technology and finance have laid the basis for upgrading China-Japan relations in the new era.上海419论坛女神会所
However, to develop Sino-Japanese relations in a way that meet the req
上海419论坛女神会所uirements of the new era, some principles and guidelines have to be followed.
Politically, the two sides should abide by the principles enshrined in the four political document
s inked by the two governments, and ensure the two sides are cooperation partners, not a threat to ea上海419论坛
ch other. Exchanges and coordination at all levels, particularly those between the leaders, should be strengthened to d上海419论坛女神会所
eepen mutual trust and help Sino-Japanese ties to evolve on a friendly and cooperative track.
On the economic front, the two sides should deepen cooperatio
n in investment, third-party markets, technology and innovation so as to boost mut
ual economic growth and promote regional economic integration, including accelerating the regional economic coop
eration negotiation process, encouraging enterprises to increase investments in each other’s country and bui
ld a fair, nondiscriminatory and predictable business environment for companies from both sides.
Xi, a renown上海419论坛女神会所ed expert in superconductors, has had to pay more than $200,000 i

Responding to the Friday NPR report, the FBI said it “regularly engages with the communitie上海419论坛
s we serve. As part of this continual outreach, we meet with a wide variety of groups, organizations, businesses, and academic institutions”.
Xi called the investigators reckless and said that even though four years have passed since上海419论坛女神会所

“Once a scientist is sued, even if he is cleared, this ‘stain’ will never be able to be erased,” he said.
Ju Yiguang, a Chinese professor and the director of the sustainable energy program at Princeton Un上海419论坛

Even though his English was not fluent, he was invited by NASA
上海419论坛女神会所to participate in some research, which would be “unimaginable” today, he said.
Ju said that at the time, it was known that anyone in the United States had a chance to serve it. But now, he feels frustrated.
“Before Professor Xi’s case, we understood that intellectual property was something sen
sitive, and we had to keep ourselves clear. But today we are discussing a different dimension, that is fore
ign influence in academia, so you don’t know where the borderlines are or when you cross the line,” Ju said.上海419论坛女神会所
He said there was an increasing fear of a new McCarthyism among the community of Chinese Amer

Reality show ensures rock bands get their just recognition.
The country’s music scene is dominated by good-looking pop idols who are chart-toppers, give sold-out concerts and bathe in the a上海419论坛女神会所
dulation of screaming fans. All very good for them, but it means rock ba
nds that tend to be associated with bad boy images are often overshadowed.
上海419论坛However, with summer in full swing, indie bands are set to prove that the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll lives on, and some of the than
ks for that can go to a reality show, The Big Band, produced by the online streaming service iQiyi that premiered on the platform on May 25.
With the first group of 31 Chinese bands-both established and new-taking turns to display their song上海419论坛女神会所
s and techniques, the reality show introduces this particular indie culture, which engenders passion and zeal.
For this feature story China Daily talked with a handful of Chinese bands and people who have experienced上海419论坛
the golden days of Chinese rock music and who have helped indie music and bands find their own voices. They are the established Beiji
ng-based rock band The Face, two Chinese rock bands that combine their local dialects with rock beats: Black Head from Xi’an, Shaanxi province, and Jiu
lian Zhenren from Lianping county in Guangdong province and the indie music promoter Liu Fei.
For an older generation of Chinese rock music fans, when the veteran rock band The Face appeared in the reality show they were awash in ’90s nostalgia.
The Face, founded in 1989 and comprising lead vocalist Chen Hui, the guitarists Liu Jingwei and Wu Jindi, the bassist Ou Ya
ng and the drummer Liu Zhong, performed a song titled Dream in the first episode of the reality show. The song
was released in 1994, during a period often regarded as a golden era for the Chinese rock scene.

CBD-infused products can be bought on the internet, at gas stations, convenience stores, drugstore chains and retail stores.
Many of the products are vague about what exactly CBD is supposed to do, and the US Food and Drug Administration pro

cles and testimonials suggest that CBD can effectively treat an array of ailments.
The deluge of CBD-infused products started after US President Donald Trump signed the Farm Bill into law in Dece
