“The atrocity has totally gone beyond the bottom line of a civilized society,
which is no different from terrorists’ acts,” the Liaison Office statement said.
The office pointed out that the protesters’ acts, including paralyzing operations of the airport and harassing passengers of var上海419
ious nationalities and ages, severely hurt others’ rights and damaged Hong Kong’s international reputation.
“This time the protesters have torn down their deceptive masks of ‘peace, rationality and nonviolence'”, the statement said.上海419品茶微信

s to safeguard the personal safety and legitimate rights of mainland residents in Hong Kong.
ministrative Region (HKSAR) government and police have condemned illegal assemblies by protesters in Ko

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said in a report on Friday that the yuan’s exchange r
ate was “broadly in line with medium-term fundamentals” and China’s central bank “has had little foreign exch上海419品茶微信
ange interventions in recent years”, a conclusion that clarifies China’s innocence from currency manipulation.
The IMF said that the country’s external position in 2018 was “broadly in li
上海419ne with the level consistent with medium-term fundamentals and desirable policies”.
The organization also welcomed China’s efforts to reform its exchange rate regime to make the yuan more fle
xible, according to its report released after its latest Article IV consultation with China that concluded on July 31.上海419品茶微信
The clarification by the IMF indicates that the US Treasury’s reckless claim on Mon
day of China engaging in currency manipulation is nothing but unfounded finger-pointing.

The State Council Information Office on Sunday issued a white paper
上海419on historical matters concerning Xinjian
g Uygur Autonomous Region in northwest China. China is a unified multiethnic country, and the various ethnic group上海419
s in Xinjiang have long been part of the Chines
e nation. Throughout its long history, X 上海419injiang’s development has been closely related to that of China, the white paper said.
n more recent times, hostile forces in and outside China, especially se paratists, religious extremists and terrorists, have tried to split China and bre上海419品茶微信
ak it ap
art by distorting history and facts, the document, titled “Historical Matters Concerning Xinjiang”, said. 上海419Xinjiang has long been an inseparable part of Chinese territory. Never has it bee
n the so-called “East Turkistan.” The Uygur ethnic group came into being throug上海419品茶微信
h a long process of migration and integration, the white paper said, adding that it is part of the Chinese nation.
In Xinjiang, different cultures and religions coexist, and ethnic cultures have been fostered and developed in the embrac上海419
e of the Chinese civilization. Islam is neither an indigenous nor the sole belief system of the Uygur people. It has ta
ken root in the Chinese culture and developed soundly in China, the document said.上海419品茶微信
The surge in religious extremism around the world has caused a rise in religious extremis
上海419m in Xinjiang and has resulted in an increasing number of incidents of terror and violence, it noted.
“Xinjiang’s fight against terrorism and extremism is a battle for justice and civilization
against evil and barbaric forces. As such it deserves support, respect and understanding,” it said.上海419品茶微信
The document said that some countries, organizations and individual
上海419s that apply double standards to terrorism and human rights have issued unjustified
criticism of Xinjiang’s effort. This kind of criticism betrays the basic conscience and j上海419品茶微信
ustice of humanity, and will be repudiated by all genuine champions of justice and progress, it said.
Washington’s countervailing measures on Chinese imports violate body’s laws
The United States has challenged the author
ity of the World Trade Organization by ignoring a上海419 WTO ruling, and such a move may escalate trade tension with China, experts said on Wednesday.
上海419品茶微信The WTO announced on Tuesday that the revised co
untervailing measures imposed by t he US on imports of certain products from China were inconsistent with WTO laws.
r, the US failed to comply with the WTO ruling and上海419 accused China of “using State-owned enterprises to subsidize its economy”.
上海419The WTO mechanism is what members use to se
ttle trade disputes, and countries in most cases abide by the rulings made by th e organization, said Xue Rongjiu, deputy director of the China Society for WTO Studies.上海419品茶微信
“If member economies don’t follow this procedure, the rule-based global multilateral system
will be damaged and threatened by protectionism,” Xue said, adding that under such circumstances, some
上海419members may be forced to also use trade as a geopolitical weapon to ensure their interests.
Upholding the findings of a WTO dispute panel made public in March 2018, a WTO appellate body ruled that the US acted inc
onsistently with its provisions of subsidies and countervailing measures agreement.上海419品茶微信
The Ministry of Commerce urged the US to take immediate and concrete
action to “correct the wrong practices” in the anti-subsidy investigation against China and to c
上海419reate a fair and stable international trading environment for companies from both countries.
“Although both the panel of experts and the appellate body in this case
have ruled that the US countervailing measures violate WTO rules and asked the US to c上海419品茶微信
orrect its action, the US didn’t comply with the WTO ruling and continued to adopt tra上海419
de remedy measures against Chinese products in recent years,” the ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.
hina will intensify efforts to make its hog farming sector safer and ensure stable supplies after the industry has

outbreaks, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs said on Thursday. “We will place equal importance on disease prevention and control and on pork output to st
hog production and try to guarantee market supplies,” Vice-Minister of Agriculture and Rural Af上海419 fairs Yu Kangzhen said at a news conference organized by the State Council Information Office.上海419
s elaborating on a guideline released by the State Council on Wednesday regarding intensifying prevention and control of African swine fever. Outbreaks of the fever have been effectively contained in China in recent month
s following strict controls and prevent 上海419品茶微信ion efforts taken since early August after the first domestic outbreak of the disease was reported. But the co
untry still faces severe challenges in the disease’s prevention and control, and sustained efforts are needed, he said.
Yang Zhenhai, chief of the ministry’s Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Medicine Bureau, said monit上海419
oring has shown the number of live hogs in China fell by nearly 23 percent year-on-year in May due to the outbreaks.
The ministry will work with related authorities to urge local governments to implement policies and m上海419品茶微信
easures designed to support hog raising, including offering preferable loans to hog farmers and cash subsidies to those wh
上海419ose animals were slaughtered due to swine fever prevention and control measures, he said.
The authorities will encourage hog farmers to replenish stock and organize technicians to hel
p them solve problems in hog raising. Meanwhile, the ministry will guide local authorities to help hog fa上海419品茶微信
rms improve waste treatment facilities, and prevent them上海419
The ministry will also support cross-regional transport of pork to replace transport of live pigs－which is still co
mmon practice in many places－to reduce the chance of the spread of disease, Yang said.上海419品茶微信
As of Wednesday, Yu said, 143 swine fever outbreaks had been reported in China, 44 of them this year. To prevent it spre
ading, nearly 1.2 million hogs were slaughtered. Quarantine measures have been lifted in 25 provincial areas, he added.
“In general, the frequency of swine fever outbreaks has noticeably decreased, and hog p
roduction, transport and distribution are gradually being restored,” Yu said.

A number of countries – including Bulgaria, Mexico, Brazil, the Philippines, Laos and Myanmar – have shown great interest in co-hosting the fair in the future and will hold talks with the organizers during the event, He said.
Meanwhile, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, which co-hosted the fair last year, has agreed to take the role for the next five years starting from this year. He said the move would give impetus to the consistent development of SMEs across the globe.

ded that Russia’s losses from economic sanctions were m ore than five times lower than those of the main countries that imposed them.

He said the losses were reflected in a reduction in the number of jo
