On Monday morning, Xi visited the JL MAG Rare-Earth

 Co and learned about the company’s production of rare earths and the development of the rare earth industry in Ganzhou.

On the heels of the United States government announcement it will ban unauthorized exports of US technology to Hua

wei, by Monday, a number of major US tech giants, including Google, had reportedly stopped supplies.

Amid the escalating tit-for-tat trade blows between the world’s tw

o largest economies, the US putting Huawei, the face of Chinese hi-tech progress, on its Ent

ity List is no doubt a calculated blow to hit China and Huawei where it hurts. “America will probably use its ability to with

hold components from Huawei as a bargaining chip in a future trade deal with China,” The Economist reckons.

People-to-people contacts, as a non-ignorable compon

ent of the Belt and Road Initiative, are boosted by China and Azerbaijan

via linking people of the two countries in cultural exchange, education, human

itarian dialogue and tourism cooperation. China and Azerbaijan signed a memorandum of understanding to stim

ulate tourism between the two countries. “Data from 2018 shows 15,000 Chinese tourists visited Azerbaijan last year, w

hich is not enough of course, and we aim to do more to attract more visitors in the coming years,” Hajiyev said.

He also highlighted education exchanges between the two countries, as China has sent students to study language in Azerba

Mattarella said that Italy supports the Belt and Road Initiati

 that was put forward by Xi, and the initiative is expected to promote the interconnectivity of the Eurasian continent.

The BRI is also a road of cultural exchanges, he said, adding that Italy would like to enhance cooperation with China in tourism and culture. Italy ad

mires China’s achievements in economic development, and it appreciates China’s opening-up policies, he said.

Both Italy and China are ancient civilizations, and the people of the two countries have sufficient wisdom to deal with

challenges nowadays, he said, adding that China’s rejuvenation will bring new contributions to peace and prosperity.

China will take a solid step toward becoming a high-income country this year,

reating more space to deepen reform and expand opening-up, economists said on Friday.

  It employs an estimated 130,000-150,000 people, accounting for more than half of the local workforce, Gong said.

United States should not feel uneasy about this,” ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a news conference in Beijing.

Nasrin Sotoudeh has dedicated her life to defending wom

  en’s rights and speaking out against the death penalty — it is utterly outrageous that Ir

an’s authorities are punishing her for her human rights work,” said Philip Luther, Amnesty Int

ernational’s Middle East and North Africa research and advocacy director, in a statement on Monday.

  Last June, Sotoudeh was arrested at her home in Tehran and taken to Evin prison, a notorious jail just outside the capital.

  According to Amnesty International, Iran conducted its “worst” crackdown in a decade in 2018, arresting over 7,000 dissidents.

  Women in Iran have been protesting the obligatory Islamic headscarf by taking theirs off and waving them on sticks.

  Sotoudeh, a winner of the European Parliament‘s Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought, is serving a jail sentence for a secon

d time. In 2010, she was sentenced to 11 years in prison on charges related to her work defending detained Iranian dem

onstrators during the 2009 Green Movement, a protest movement sparked by widespread accusations of electoral fraud.

There was a brief lull in the negative coverage after Prince

  Harry instructed his spokesperson to issue a statement in November 2016 before the couple married, calling out “the racial

undertones of comment pieces and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments.”

  Yomi Adegoke, author of Slay in Your Lane: The Black Girl Bible, said Meghan was very much a departure from what most people associate with the British royal family.

  ”She’s foreign, not just by being American, but she’s got black heritage, she’s a divorcee,” Adegoke said.

  ”She’s just a very different type of person and somebody that I don’t think your average British member of the public t

hinks of when they think of the word duchess or royal family at all.”Much of the trolling exploits the cla

ims of a rift between Meghan and her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge. Where Kate is lauded by the media for expo

sing her shoulder in a dress, Meghan is accused by the tabloids of breaking royal protocol for doing similar.

  When Meghan wears dark nail polish, the “vulgar fashion move” is criticized for breaki

ng royal protocol “again.” Meanwhile, Kate is said to opt for “subtle” shades more in keeping with the Queen’s preferences.

Defense spending poses no threat to other nations, spokesm

China’s defense expenditure is for the protection of the nation’s sover

eignty, security and territorial integrity and does not pose any threat to other countries, ac

cording to Zhang Yesui, spokesman for the second session of the 13th National People’s Congress.

Zhang said at a news conference on Monday in Beijing that China always sticks

to the path of peaceful development and follows policies that are purely defensive in nature.

“To judge whether a country poses threat to other

nations, the key lies in its foreign and defense policies rather than the increase in its defense budget,” he said.

He made the remarks in response to a question on China’s perspective change to its defense budget this year.

The dinner session was thought to serve as a tone

setting test for the formal talks scheduled on Thursday morning, which may decide the future of

a peace process that has been stalled after the two leaders’ Singapore summit in June.

On Wednesday, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that Beij

ing hopes the Hanoi summit between Kim and Trump will take an important ste

p forward to achieve denuclearization and establish a peace mechanism on the Korean Peninsula.

“China expects the meeting between leaders of the DPRK and the US will continue moving

forward in the direction of the ‘dual-track’ approach,” Wang said at a news conference after the 16th me

eting of the foreign ministers of China, Russia and India in Wuzhen, Zhejiang province.

Analysts have described Kim and Trump’s Singapore summit as focused on breaking the ice to p

ave the way for full-scale diplomacy on denuclearization, improved ties and a formal conclusion to the

war on the Korean Peninsula, going beyond the armistice reached in 1953. Now the two nations are facing a more da

unting task of attempting to reach specific deals over details, going beyond a vaguely worded joint statement, they said.
