This year marks the 70th anniversary of the establishmen

ent of diplomatic relations, and the bilateral relationship is at its best in history, Xi said.

In a written statement released after his arrival in Moscow for the three-da

y visit to Russia, Xi said China and Russia have created a role model of peaceful coexis

tence and win-win cooperation between neighboring countries as well as between major world powers.

In a joint interview with the TASS Russian News Agency an

d the Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper ahead of the visit, Xi said the two countries have alwa

ys firmly supported each other on issues regarding their respective core interests and major concerns.

The president called on the two countries to enhance support for each other, seek greater

synergy between their development strategies, expand areas of co

operation, and play a more constructive role in international affairs.

hina-US trade has benefited both countries: report

hina-United States trade has been mutually beneficial, and the

US has reaped substantial benefits from bilateral econo

mic and trade cooperation, the Ministry of Commerce said on Thursday in a research report.

“China-US economic and trade cooperation has reached unprecedented depth and breadth,” said the report, noti

ng that bilateral trade surged last year by roughly 252 times since 1979 to $633.5 billion.

Bilateral trade in services exceeded $125 billion in 2018, and two-wa

y direct investment has totaled nearly $160 billion in the past four decades.

Since the current US administration came to power, it has ignored the mutual econ

omic and trade cooperation between two nations, said Gao Feng, the ministry’s spokesman.

While in London for an event at the Royal Lancaster

 Hotel that was aimed at encouraging investment in the northeast Chinese province that i

s part of the country’s industrial heartland, the governor and the mayor had a private meeting with Surre

y County Council Chairman Tony Samuels, who has been working to cultivate relations with China.

“Surrey is home to the headquarters of many multinationals from around the world but as

yet none from China,” Samuels said. “With China being the world’s biggest exporting nation and its ec

onomy growing so rapidly, it makes strategic sense for us to build connections there.”

Situated just south of London, Surrey has easy access to the capital and

is also close to the capital’s two main international airports, Heathrow and Gatwick.

He said it does no one any favors to delink over poss

ssible national security concerns. Fair engagement across technologies is a better way to secure national security than delinking.

“The cost of decoupling will be very high for both economies,” he said. “Engage

ment in a fair competition with common rules is a far better outcome than decoupling.”

If there has to be some “decoupling” due to “valid national security conc

erns” in both countries, that should be kept to a minimum and not exaggerated, he said.

“Normal commerce is in the interest of both of our countries. And we should pursue it vigorously,” he added.

Allen also said members of the council are worried that they are now i

n a “very uncertain time” when the already tense situation could potentially deteriorate, as th

These parties tend to look at trade agreements purely from

m a nationalist point of view and if a trade agreement is seen as overall beneficial for their co

untry, they could support it. For instance, Italy voted in favor of the EU agreement with Japan but again

st the agreement with Canada. The content of the agreement is key. For instance, these parties do not like clauses tha

t curtail the powers of single EU member states, such as the establishment of new regulatory or arbitration bodies.

Another uncertainty is Brexit. Whether it will happen or not? And what might change under

a new British prime minister? The new Brexit Party under Nigel Farage was the clear leader in the EP

election in the United Kingdom, but the UK’s 73 EP members have to leave the EP as soon as Brexit takes place.

Shanghai hotels no longer provide disposables automatically

Hotels in Shanghai will no longer automatically provide disposable daily necessities such as toothbrush, comb and shaver f

rom July 1 as a regulation on household waste will come into effect in the city on the day, People’s Daily reported.

Around 4.8 billion guests booked into 440,000 hotels in China in 2017, as per data. More than 70 percent o

f soaps are thrown away after being used once, a survey shows. Calculated by weight, each hotel t

hrows away 2.5 kg disposable soaps every day and 440,000 hotels would throw away more than 400,000 tons

of soaps every year. If each ton of soaps costs 20,000 yuan, that would be 8 billion yuan worth of soap.

Apart from soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, comb, shampoo and bath foam are often discarded

after one-time use. It’s not only a waste of money, but also a burden for environment as many articles are non-degradable.

woman receive professional yoga training in Binzhou

On a warm spring afternoon, 28-year-old Ye Xiaoxian keeps her eyes glued to her comp

uter screen as she chats with female co-workers in an office in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province.

Her concentration is only broken when a colleague offers a plate of snacks.

“I’ve already eaten a chicken drumstick, three pieces of turkey bacon, a handful of potato chips, half a bowl of white rice and som

e walnuts. My thighs will swell if I eat these snacks,” Ye said, reluctantly pushing the plate away.

Her colleague, pinching Ye lightly on the forearm, replied: “Come on, you are not fat at all. I am the elephant in the room.”

But Ye, popping a slice of pineapple into her mouth, responded, “No, I don’t e

ven feel like eating dinner tonight and I really should renew my gym membership.”

Lovren celebrates scoring their fourth goal during the Ch

England — Liverpool delivered the greatest in a long line of famous comebacks to reach the Champions Leagu

e final on Tuesday, beating Lionel Messi’s Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield to overturn a three-goal deficit from the first leg.

Divock Origi scored twice, either side of goals by halftime substitute Georginio Wijnaldum early in the second half, to send Liverp

ool into its second straight final and set up a meeting with either Ajax or Tottenham on June 1.

It was only the third time in the history of the European Cup that a team ca

me from three goals down after the first leg of a semifinal and progressed to the final, afte

r Panathinaikos in 1970-71 and Barcelona in 1985-86. No team had done it in the Champions League era.

The comeback was all the more unlikely given that Liverpool was witho

ut two of its first-choice forward line, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Instead, it was Origi — the scorer of the crucial fourth goal in the 79th minute — who made the seemingly impossible, possi

ble. And it needed some remarkable ingenuity from Trent Alexander-Arnold, who pretended to walk away from taking a co

rner before quickly spinning round and sending in a low cross as Barcelona’s players dawdled. Origi swept in the finish.

If you come in to the shore to deliver, it takes at least

an hour – an hour we lose on the water. The thing about the fish

is that once you find them, you’ve got to stay on top of them,” Berry said.

Irwin said that every day the fish seem to prefer different temperatures and water depths. He is us

ing all the skills he has learned throughout the world to find better ways to fish for carp in Kentucky.

The half-brothers are not the only ones lured to the state by Asian car

p. About a year ago, Lin Jiantong and his wife Jiang Huiying moved there from Atlanta to fish the species.

In Atlanta, they were employed as kitchen workers by Chinese restaurants. After le

arning they could make a living from fishing, Lin had no hesitation in trying a new lifestyle.

Growing up along the coast in Fujian province, he knows a thing or two about fishing.
