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.

od films. This fact is attested by Chinese films’ soari

ring box office and increasingly impressive performance at major international film

festivals including the Berlin International Film Festival, Cannes Film Festival and Venice Film Festival.

But there is still a wide gap between the Chinese film industry and the Eu

ropean and US movie industries, be it in the art of filmmaking or in the publicity strat

egies and methods. That some Hollywood filmmakers spend nearly half of their budget on publicity and ad

vertising should give Chinese filmmakers some food for thought, especially since some Chinese movies, de

spite being well made and highly rated by movie critics and viewers alike, fail at the box office.

A wine-maker needs to get people to know his wine is good to make his business a success, so do Chinese filmmakers.

Foreign volunteers help out at Hangzhou scenic spot

More than 2.5 million tourists visited West Lake in Zhejiang province over the May Day holiday.

What caught the attention of many of them was the presence of a team of eight intern

ational students, all wearing yellow vests and Bluetooth headsets, and riding electric scooters.

The eight were studying in Hangzhou, Zhejiang’s provincial capital. They are the first internatio

nal volunteer team serving at the famous spot, which was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011.

The foreign volunteers are from India, Mongolia, Banglade

sh, Indonesia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Yemen.

“As Hangzhou is seeing an increasing number of individual travelers from abroad followin

g the 2016 G20 Summit … we have been considering how to diversify our volunteer forces during h

olidays and peak seasons for years,” said Liu Jian, director of the volunteer program.

ut a careful survey by James Laurenceson, of the Austr

alia-China Relations Institute at the University of Technology Sydney, of media stori

es on the subject showed that, with about 130,000 Chinese students in Australia, there were a mere four incid

ents. And in not a single case was freedom of expression compromised or classroom discussion stifled.

Anti-China media stories focus on large campaign donatio

ns to Australian political parties by Chinese businessman Huan

g Xiangmo. But of the 300 companies in the Australia-China Chamber of Commerce, none donates to po

litical parties, and this includes investors in mining, banking, food and aviation ind

ustries. In fact, there is no pattern of donations from China swamping political parties.

JD Logistics responds to criticism over courier pay cuts

JD Logistic, the logistics arm of the Beijing-based tech heavyweight JD

.com, will cancel the basic salary for delivery staff , CEO and Chairman Liu Qiangdong said i

n response to arguments on the company’s salary adjustments in an internal email sent on Monday.

JD Logistics lost over 2.3 billion yuan ($342.9 million) in 2018, its 12th consecut

ive year to lose money. If the situation continues, Liu said, the company would only last for two more years.

If internal settlements are deducted, JD Logistics lost more than 2.8 billion yuan last year.

The main reasons for the loss are few external delivery orders and high internal costs, Liu said.

The company has only two choices, according to Liu: one, increase external delivery orders to promote external inco

me growth; the other, reduce staff members’ well-being to the level of other express companies.

Reducing fund ratios to average levels and canceling the basic salary a

ims to encourage couriers to get more external delivery orders and increase revenue.

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.
