Here, we come back to the new group of independent

support a modern, progressive, global Britain that is very much a part of modern Europe. Cur

rently, both main say that they will deliver Brexit — albeit different versions of it. A new group in Parliament, free to vote and speak as they li

ke, can now make the case for a softer Brexit, or even a second vote, and do so in ways that could damage both the gove

rnment and the opposition.
But will they? That’s a crucial question. If the movement swells, it could create the mome

ntum for a second referendum and push one party or another (probably the Labour Party) to formally back such a vo

te. It could terrify Conservative Brexiteers into backing May on her deal. It could completely break the par

liamentary arithmetic and cause the UK to stumble into a no deal. It could force a general election in which all 11 los

e their seats. It’s very hard to tell.
But the main takeaway from this week is that these 11 MPs were so frustrated by t

heir own parties — for more reasons that just Brexit — that they needed to do something. And that it was now or never. T

hey were left with no good options because, right now, politics in the UK is spiraling out of control.

The UK would be ‘irresponsible’ to let Huawei into 5Gth

  Chinese tech giant Huawei is facing a new attack as it tries to persuade the UK government to let it help build super-fast 5G networks in the country.

  Top British cybersecurity officials are reportedly confident they can manage any risks from Huawei’s telecommunic

ations equipment, but a report published Wednesday by the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), a top security think tank, said that would be a mistake.

  ”Allowing Huawei’s participation is at best naive, at worst irresponsible,” the report said, sugg

esting such a move could compromise the United Kingdom’s communications infrastructure.

  UK spies think they can handle Huawei in 5G networks. The US doesn’t agree

  The US government is pushing allies around the world to block wireless operators from buying Huawei gear for the 5G networks t

hey’re starting to build. US officials say the company’s technology could be used by Chinese intelligence agencies for spying.

  Huawei and the Chinese government have repeatedly denied the US allegations. Huawei didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday.

  The report’s release comes days after the Financial Times reported that the UK’s National Cyb

er Security Centre had concluded the risks of using Huawei equipment in 5G networks could be managed.

Amid the easing ties between North and South Korea, as

as well as between Pyongyang and other stakeholders on the Korean Peninsula, if Japan maintains

its conservative strategy for North Korea, its overall Northeast Asia diplomacy will be affected.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe would find it hard to shore up d

omestic support through vibrant diplomacy. Tokyo can take advantage of the positive si

gnals the next Trump-Kim summit generates to win the opportunity to boost its ties with North Korea.

If Washington-Pyongyang ties are significantly enhanced, it will send a conciliatory messag

e to Tokyo. Under the US-Japan-South Korea alliance and under the framework of US-Japan m

ilitary cooperation, if North Korea is still hostile toward Japan, it may find it hard to get a multilateral diplomatic fo

othold in East Asia. In fact, Pyongyang hopes to talk to Tokyo. North Korea’s geopolitics depends on support from tra

ditionally friendly states such as China and Russia. Meanwhile, it also desires to enhance relations with South Korea and Ja

pan, so as to gain maximum advantage in multilateral geopolitics and security in East Asian and Asia-Pacific regions.

ibetan teacher awarded for efforts to bring knowledge tor

In September 2015, Alibaba Group founder Jack Ma Yun started a program to sponsor rural teac

hers. His Jack Ma Foundation then launched a Rural Teacher Award to honor the 100 top tea

chers around China each year and offer each of them 100,000 yuan ($15,000) and professional training for three years.

In order to attend the ceremony in Hainan on January 13, Thubten Gyatso had to leave Moding vill

age on January 10, ride a mule to Xulong county, and walk for two hours to Simaoding in Yu

nnan Province. From there, he took a bus to Shangri-La county and flew to Sanya, a tourist city of Hainan.

“Without Jack Ma’s campaign, I wouldn’t have had the chance to go to Sanya. I wanted to see what the sea a

nd big city are like,” Thubten Gyatso said.Born in 1986, Thubten Gyatso has worked in Moding village school for eight years. His onl

y colleague is Tashi Chophel, who was also Thubten Gyatso’s teacher when he was a student at the school.

When Thubten Gyatso was a child, he severely injured his right leg while walking in the mountainous roads and ended

up having to use an artificial limb. After graduating from middle school, he was forced to end his education.

“I was heartbroken, but there was no way for me to continue my studies. When I had time, I learn

ed the Tibetan language by myself,” Thubten Gyatso said in a video interview released on iqiyi.com.

The disability also meant Thubten Gyatso could not do any physical work. His teacher Tash

i Chophel suggested he work at the school to earn some money, and more importantly, to teach the children.

One of the goals of Pompeo’s visit is to rebuild the political

relationship between the US and Central and Eastern Europe. The US will also launch a Future Leaders Ex

change Program, providing one-year academic scholarships for Hungarian high school students to study in the US.

There are many aspects to US strategic return to Central and Eastern Europe. First, the US can

enhance energy cooperation with the region. The regional countries would prefer not to become overly dependent on Russia.

The US has already voiced strong opposition to the energy cooperation between Germany and Russia via the Nord Stream 2 project.

Given that the US is set to become a net energy exporting country in 2020, it could become a major source of energy for Central and Eastern European countries.

Second, the US will strengthen political cooperation with Central and Eastern European countries.

The region has undertaken multifaceted diplomacy, hoping to win more policy initiatives in tod

ay’s volatile geopolitical dynamic. As they receive less political and economic promises from the EU, they are turning to e

xternal powers such as China and Russia. The US wants to get back in as quickly as possible to make up for its absence.

The actual reason for flaws in practice is that globalism needs

 unified global political will, which is difficult to find amid large sovereign nations. Hence, there is a huge gap between ideal globalism and its practice. Sovereign states should try to spare room for g

lobalism. Globalization is required by people and cannot be reversed at will. On the other hand, globalization has to take i

nto account the political reality of mass sovereign countries. The goals and agenda need to be limited within the flexible boundary of sovereign nations. Ot

herwise, it would disrupt some countries’ political and economic setup, breeding social antagonism.

In the era of exacerbating confusion, globalization may be not as appealing as before, but it is u

ndesirable to discard globalism, which has boosted the development of global economy and fought

common problems. In a highly connected and almost irreversible world, simply retreating to nationalism will generate nothing but disaster. We can

hold a selective attitude toward globalization. The part of judging from the perspective of strong nations’ i

nterests and submitting to capital is not advisable. The globalization we desire is to serve the interest of all people and

match the political system of sovereign countries. On the whole, what we need is a revised globalization.

Washington alleged that INF failed because Moscow did not

ply with INF and Beijing was not bound by the treaty. These were its main excuses for the withdrawal.

Germany believes that the more countries involved in INF, the better. However, ma

ny European countries can never understand the security risks and the urgency to strengthen national defense in other regions.

The INF Treaty was signed by the US and the Soviet Union. It was a compromise bet

ween the two superpowers with the same level of military power to ease their confrontations.

Although China is now much stronger than it was in the past, its nuclear power and compreh

ensive military strength are far from being equal to those of the US and conducting negotiations on an equal footing.

The Europeans are clear that the US withdrawal from the INF Treaty is part of its America First agenda and an abandonment of its international obligations.

At the Munich security conference, Merkel and European countries criticized recent US security policies. But on the issue of the

INF treaty, Merkel snubbed China to serve US interests, reflecting the selfishness of Germans and some Europeans.

It’s hard to say that China entered a new cycle of credit expansion,” said Zhang Ming, chief eco

nomist at Ping An Securities. “For the whole year, the overall financing growth and money supply is expected to stabilize.”

Fast credit expansion means higher pressure on companies to repay debt and interest, and the space for sustainable credit growth i

s limited, given the current leverage level. Total outstanding debt has exceeded 250 percent of GDP, Zhang said.

The good news is that credit has been channeled effectively into the production sector, such as manuf

acturing and high-tech, and the healthier credit structure can support the overall economic r

estructuring reform, said Ruan Jianhong, head of the central bank’s statistics and analysis department.

Unexpected twist in Gui case embarrasses Swedish FM

There has been a new unexpected twist in the case of Gui Minhai, and this time, the Swedish Ambassador to China Anna Lindstedt is involved.

Gui Minhai was born in China and later became a naturalized Swedish citizen. He was a Hong Kong-based bookseller be

fore being sued in the Chinese mainland in 2015. That lawsuit strained relations between China and Sweden.

His daughter, Angela Gui, has recently detailed a bizarre account of her visit to Stockholm, which has

embarrassed the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Angela Gui, who grew up in Sweden, now live

s in Britain where she is studying for a PhD in history at university. She gave her account in a media interview last we

ek and made an announcement Wednesday on her blog. Gui said that Ambassador Lindstedt contacted her in mid-January, inviting her to go to Sto

ckholm to meet two Chinese businessmen, who Lindstedt trusted, to discuss a new approach to her father’s case.

Angela Gui said she went to Stockholm in late January where she met two Chinese businessmen in the presence of Lindstedt. In

her statement, she said that the two businessmen asked her to stop all media engagements and public comment in exch

ange for her father’s release or commutation. According to Gui, Lindstedt supported the plan and said t

hat if not, the relationship between Sweden and China would otherwise be further undermined.

Angela Gui said that after the meeting, she called the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs for confirm

ation. “They told me they hadn’t had the slightest idea this whole affair was taking place. They hadn’t even been informed the amb

assador was in the country,” she wrote. In her account of what happened, she not only gave details of the meeting,

but also described how she was feeling threatened and how the whole arrangement seemed suspicious.

We bring the best wishes of President Trump. He’s aske

ed us to state that he also places great importance on his personal relationship with you,” Lighthizer said.

“We have had two very good days of negotiations. We feel that we have made headway on some very

, very important and very difficult issues,” he said. “We have additional work we have to do but we are hopeful.”

Xi asked Lighthizer and Mnuchin to extend his sincere greetings to President Trump, saying that he cherishes their good wor

king relationship and would like to keep in contact with him.
Cooperation based on fully respecting mutual interests is the best way for the two c

ountries to renew their trade and economic relations with a deal that is in line with the interests of both countries. If that has been the shared und

erstanding during this week’s talks, and it is carried forward in the negotiations in Washington next week, hopef

ully the two sides will be able to narrow the differences between them sufficiently so that the two leaders can pe

ncil in a date for a meeting at which they can shake hands on a deal that sets the right course for future relations.
