 上海419品茶微信hina’s Tiangong II space lab will spend its last days in orbit this week before making a controlled fall on

Friday back into Earth’s atmosphere, according to the China Manned Space Agency.

All of the space lab’s assigned tasks have been finished. It is scheduled

to fall out of orbit and reenter the atmosphere under ground control on Friday, the agency said. 上海419

Most of the spacecraft will burn up during the reentry process, with a small amount of de

 上海419品茶微信bris expected to fall in a designated secure area in the South Pacific Ocean, it added.

Preparations for reentry are underway, the agency said, saying China will publish related infor

mation or inform relevant parties in a timely manner to fulfill its international obligations. 上海419

Tiangong II was put into orbit in September 2016 atop a Long March 2F carrier rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite La

unch Center in the Gobi Desert. The space lab is 10.4 meters high, 3.35 m in diameter and weighs 8.6 metric tons.

 上海419品茶微信Two astronauts, Jing Haipeng and Chen Dong, entered the lab that October after the

ir Shenzhou XI spacecraft docked with the lab and remained there for 30 days.

From April to September 2017, Tiangong II and Tianzhou I cargo spacecraft performed several docking and in-orbit refuel

ing operations, which demonstrated resupply and refueling technologies for a space station. 上海419

The space lab also carried out a series of scientific and technological experiments.

 上海419品茶微信Its predecessor, Tiangong I, was launched in September 2011 and was mainly used to test technologies involved in space re

ndezvous and docking. Tiangong I fell back to the Earth in April 2018 in an uncontrolled manner.

international relations, as well as the one-China principle and three China-US joint communiques.

President underlines two-way cooperation, strategic coordination

China and Turkey should enhance mutual strategic trust and respect each other’s core interests

and major concerns on such issues as sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, President Xi Jinping said on Tuesday.

Xi made the remark while meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. Previously, Xi hosted a welcoming ceremony for Erdogan.

Erdogan said that Turkey firmly supports the one-China policy, and that it is a fact that the people of all ethnicities in Xinjian

g are leading a happy life amid China’s development and prosperity. Turkey will not allow anybody to sow dissension among the two countries, he said.

Noting that both China and Turkey are important emerging markets and developin

g countries, Xi said it is of great significance for them to enhance strategic cooperation.

The two countries also should strengthen strategic coordination, consolidate the politica

l foundation of the China-Turkey strategic cooperation and cooperative relationship, a

nd ensure that the bilateral relations always operate on a healthy and stable track, Xi said.

China appreciates that Erdogan has reaffirmed his commitment many times to not allow any forces to carry out anti-Chinese or separatist activities in Turkey, Xi said.

China attaches great importance to Turkey’s stance of supporting China’s fight against te

rrorism, Xi said, adding that China would like to enhance their anti-terrorism cooperation.

Xi said the two sides should enhance connection of development strategies and deepen practical cooperation. Hailing Turkey as an important partner for join

tly building the Belt and Road, Xi said that China would like to speed up connecting the Belt and Road with Turkey’s Middle Corridor plan, and pro

mote the cooperation in areas including trade, investment, science, energy, infrastructure and major projects.

Guo Rui, a professo 上海419r of international relations at Jilin

University, said, “Although the DMZ meeting has created significant momentum that will help restart a change on the Korean Peninsula, as sanctions will remain in place, chances are

 上海419品茶微信not high that the meeting will lead to a major change in the short-term trajectory of denuclearizing the peninsula.”

One of the most encouraging signs that emerged from the meeting between President Xi Jinpi

ng and US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Osaka on Saturday was the s 上海419

oftening of Trump’s stance on the sanctions the US administration had imposed on Chinese telecommunications equi

pment provider Huawei. Trump said US companies can continue selling telecom components to Huawei. 上海419

If US companies indeed continue selling telecom components to Huawei, it will come as a big relief to the world at a time when th

e international community fears the “technology decoupling” of world’s largest and second-largest economies could u 上海419品茶微信

ndermine global technological development, especially the commercialization of 5G technology, in which Huawei is a leading global player.

Previously the US administration was reportedly mulling banning 5G telecom equipment designed and manufactured in China, includin 上海419

g those made by multinational companies such as Ericsson and Nokia, from the US market.
The fact is, as a global leader in 5G, Hu

 上海419品茶微信awei is too big to fail. After the US administration banned American companies from selling chips to Huawei an

d other Chinese companies, Silicon Valley has suffered as much, if not more than, Huawei. Besides, some companies co

ntinued to supply chips to Huawei via their overseas branches in order to avoid violating the US ban. 上海419品茶微信

Hopefully, the Xi-Trump meeting and the likely resumption of trade talks between China and the U

S will prompt Washington to adopt a consistent and the right approach toward Chinese high-tech co

mpanies, not least because China tends to treat all companies, domestic as well as foreign, equally. 上海419品茶微信

For example, with research and development centers and manufacturing bases in China, Er

icsson and Nokia have won big contracts in the just launched bid for 5G network devices. These companies hav

e been supplying to markets and serving telecom operators and enterprises across the globe, by capi

talizing on China’s skilled workforce, world-class infrastructure and complete industrial chain.

Yet, if the US does not lift the ban, such companies would have to endure higher production co

sts. They could even be forced to transfer their businesses out of China, although both Ericsson and Nokia cl

aim they can operate production bases in other countries despite the higher costs, due to the flexible supply chain.

At present, 5G has become the driving force to boost Ch

“Beijing is actively transforming itself as a national scientific and tech

The monkeys implanted with human genes developed bett

better short-term memory and faster reaction times compared with the control group, acco

rding findings published March 27 in the China-based journal National Science Review.

The study also found that transgenic monkeys’ brains took longer to develop, in a similar fashion to humans.

The experiment has divided the scientific community however, with a number of Western scientists criticizing it as uneth

ical, while some went as far to suggest, perhaps ironically, that it could lead to a Planet of the Apes-type scenario.

The Kunming Institute of Zoology told China Daily in a statement that the experiment was ethically approved in 2010.

In 2015 the animal rights committee of Kunming Biomed International, a research organiza

tion specializing in nonhuman primates, also declared the animals were being treated humanely in every

step of the experiment, in accordance with domestic and international regulations, the statement said.

The pound fell on the uncertainty surrounding the poten

ial delay and the fact that a no-deal Brexit remained possible. By 1800 GMT it was down around 0.4 percent against the dollar.

Nearly three years after the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, there is still no

clarity over how, when or even whether the world’s fifth largest economy should leave the bloc it joined in 1973.

When May set the March 29 exit date two years ago by serving the formal

Article 50 divorce papers, she declared there would be “no turning back”. But parliament’s ref

usal to ratify the withdrawal deal she agreed with the EU has thrust her government into crisis.

The Labour Party said that, by choosing a short delay, May was forcing

lawmakers to decide between accepting a deal they have already rejected or leaving without a deal.
