ible missile deployment 阿拉爱上海ncerns in Asia-Pacif

Possible missile deployment raising concerns in Asia-Pacific, Beijing says

The United States’ intention to deploy new missiles in the Asia-Pacific region has raised co 阿拉爱上海

ncerns, and China will take countermeasures if necessary, the Foreign Ministry and experts said.

 阿拉爱上海女神会所Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for the Foreign Ministry, said China will not “sit idly by” and wat

ch its interests being compromised if the US deploys intermediate-range missiles in the region.

She said China “will not allow any country to stir up trouble on 阿拉爱上海

our doorstep” and “will take all necessary measures to safeguard nati

onal security interests” in a statement published on the ministry’s website late on Monday. 阿拉爱上海女神会所

The comments came days after the US unilaterally withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty sig

ned with the Soviet Union in 1987, which banned land-based missiles with a range of 500 to 5,500 kilometers. 阿拉爱上海

Following the withdrawal, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said over the weekend

that he wanted to deploy midrange conventional missiles in the Asia-Pacific within months.

 阿拉爱上海Hua warned that international and region

al security will be severely undermined if the US insists on the deployment.

“For a long time, the US has been grossly interfering in the affairs of regional countries in the Asia-Pacific,” she said.

“Politically, it has tried to drive a wedge between them by promoting a so-ca 阿拉爱上海女神会所

lled Indo-Pacific strategy. It has adopted a selfish, beggar-thy-neighbor approach in econo

mic affairs while making military deployment and strengthening military allies in the region.”

 阿拉爱上海The US has been shifting blame by using China as an excuse on issues including the INF

Treaty and hyping up the so-called China missile threat in disregard of the facts, Hua said.

“Despite strong international opposition, the US chose 阿拉爱上海女神会所

to withdraw from the INF Treaty. Now it is hastily seeking to deploy interm

ediate-range missiles in Asia. This, in fact, reveals the real intention of the US withdrawal from the treaty,” she added.

The move fully demonstrates Beijing’s firm determinati

on to defend its due interests and legitimate rights in international trade and economic cooperation, according to analysts.

The US has totally ignored the fact that China has been eager to resolve trade and economic issues through high-level official ta

lks and pledged to further expand market access for global businesses, said Liang Ming, a senior resea

rcher at the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation.

China has emphasized that the US should not use the tariff method. That is not just for China’s benefit; it is the rational choice a

ny country would make when facing unreasonable requests in trade, said Dong Yan, director of the inte

rnational trade office at the Institute of World Economics and Politics under the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

These values, rooted on Asia’s culture and history and cen

ered on consensus, social harmony, stability and discipline, are more important and rel

evant than ever in the face of challenges-such as protectionism and terrorism-confronting the world today.

Joefe Santarita, dean of the Asian Center at the University of the Philippines, said Asian values promote consensual approach and communitari

anism rather than individualism, and they prioritize social order and harmony as well as respect for elders, discipline and a pate

rnalistic state along with the primary role of government in economic development.

“Asian values are the salient ingredients on how to learn to work tog

ether through trust and consequently promote globalization,” Santarita told China Da

ily. He cited China’s guanxi, a cultural concept that stresses deep personal connections and maintaining relations.

“Guanxi is a clear manifestation of a success story of a cultural element that is aptly applied

in the business sector. Trust is a fundamental element for Chinese businessmen who have engaged in com

mercial partnerships and international trading systems for centuries,” he said.

ities have grown more quickly than in big cities, including clothing, food, beverages and home appliances, Chen added.

During Spring Festival in February, small-town youths in third- an

d lower-tier cities outperformed their peers in bigger centers of population in consu

mption across major e-commerce platforms, including the number of orders placed and the range of products bought.

In third- and fourth-tier cities, total online spending during Spring Festival rose by 55 percent year-on-year, comp

ared with 51 percent in first-tier metropolises. Spending by small-town youths on beauty products rose by 7.8 perc

ent year-on-year, compared with a 5.4 percent increase among their peers in larger cities, according to a report rel

eased by Tmall-Alibaba’s e-commerce platform-and market research company Kantar Worldpanel.

Small-town youths have also boosted the movie industry. For example, in the first quarter of this year, some

56 percent of the box office for The New King of Comedy came from lower-tier cities, as did 46 percent for Crazy Alien.

The regulation also called for stricter implementation

 of programs and compliance oversight to ensure that the required funds of investment programs are in place on time.

The approval mechanism for government-invested pro

grams will be further standardized, and major programs must go through procedures suc

h as evaluations by intermediary service institutions, the public and experts, as well as risk assessment.

Government investment funds must prioritize investments into areas where the market cannot effectively allocate res

ources, such social services, public infrastructure and environment protection, the regulation said.

It also calls for equal treatment of various

types of investment entities, adding that authorities should not set up biased conditions.

The premier said in his Government Work Report this year that Chi

The price of carp is low compared with other comme

The price of carp is low compared with other comme

ial fish, but the ease of catching large quantities makes up for this, both men said.

Irwin has turned down a job in Alaska for the summer. Catching carp in Kentucky is a much easier, he said.

“Here, the weather is warmer, the climate is better and I get to sleep in my own bed at t

he end of the day,” he said, adding that the earnings are comparable to what he would get in Alaska.

Irwin and Berry make a good living catching Asian carp, which

are so abundant in rivers and lakes that they have become a serious ecological pr

oblem for states such as Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Illinois and Kentucky.

Ron Brooks, fisheries director at the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, said Asian carp are disru

pting $1 billion worth of recreational and commercial business in western Kentucky alone.
