China has exercised great restraint and goodwill in

trying to maintain stable relations with the US,” he said.

Li Haidong, a professor of US studies at China Foreign Affairs Universi

ty, said Washington has pushed a hard line in relations with Beijing in recent years.

“The Taiwan question is much more complicated and nonnegotiable,” Li said.

“If the US side continues to misinterpret the one-­China policy, it will irreparably damage Sino­-US ties,” he warned.

The US Senate will have to vote on the act before it can become law. The time of the vote is unknown.

“The consensus among US officials is to be tough on China, and room for rational option

s is rapidly shrinking as overconfidence and rash actions become the new norm,” he said.

Remaining poverty alleviation tasks are quite arduou

s, and government departments must make continuous efforts to ensure tasks are completed. Off

icials of poverty-stricken counties must keep a close eye on problems to ensure people can escape poverty.

cize Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, the statement said. A

Wang, the Chinese think tank member, said many of

nternational relations scholars of his generation think of the US

as an example of the value of “freedom, democracy, fairness and human rights”.

“But those words are no longer applicable to describe the US today,” he said.

Wang said that for him, cancellation of the visa is nothing m

ore than a short-term absence from US academic activities, and “it is the US’ loss, not ours”.

He also said the decision would not affect the Chinese think tank he leads in continuing aca

demic exchanges with the US, and he suggests that China should not take countermeasures over such matters.

“No matter how petty the US becomes, China should still stick to its open attitude rather compete for who’s worse,” he said.

The China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative is not a geopolitical tool or a debt trap for particip

ating countries, but a platform for cooperation, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Friday.

Wang made the remark at a press conference ahead of the second Belt and Road F

orum on International Cooperation, which will be held in Beijing next week.

Kim, while stressing the importance of solving prob

lems through dialogue and negotiations, also underlined that he does not accept “the American style of

dialogue” which imposes the United States’ unilateral demands upon its dialogue partner.

Kim said the United States is hinting at holding

a third DPRK-US Summit, but what happened in Hanoi “is not inviting” to the DPRK.

However, Kim also mentioned his good relations with Trump. “As P

resident Trump keeps saying, the personal ties between me and him

are not hostile like the relations between the two countries and we still maintain good relations.”

At the end of the speech, Kim said he hoped that the United

States would decide wisely and that the confrontation betw

een the two countries will be brought to a complete stop.

The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this week that

 after the pilots turned off the MCAS, they were unable to regain control of the plane. They then re-engaged the anti-stall syste

m, the Journal said. It was not clear why the pilots did not continue following Boeing’s emergency checklist. Aviation exper

ts who asked not to be named told China Daily that using nonstandard procedures may have made things worse.

The preliminary finding by Ethiopian authorities likely will increase pressure on Boeing to deve

lop and install new software for the MCAS. It also is expected to result in a rigorous review of the softw

are fix by the US Federal Aviation Administration, which has been criticized by aviation analysts and mem

ers of Congress for depending too heavily on aircraft industry officials to certify their new planes as safe.

The FAA said late on Wednesday that it will launch a joint task force with NASA and internati

onal aviation regulators to review Boeing’s new software for the anti-stall system. The task force will be headed

by Chris Hart, former chairman of the US National Transportation Safety Board. The FAA has not released the nam

es of those to serve on the Joint Authorities Technical Review team, their affiliations or nationalities.
