上海会所品茶微信Construction of Beijing’s new Fengtai Railway Station started in the first half of this year, and the sta

The new Fengtai Railway Station, which is aiming to handle 14,000 passengers simultaneously when in operation, is desi上海会所
gned to have 12 platforms and 22 rail lines, according to the Beijing Municipal Commission of Development and Reform.
Some main high-speed rail routes, including lines from the capital to Guangzhou, Shanghai and Hong Kong, will pass through the new railway station.
The project plans to ease pressure on Beijing West Railway Station, which reached it上海会所品茶微信

The United States seems intent on playing the dangerous “Taiwan card” again by allowing Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen to stop over in the US on her way to “v
上海会所isit” some Caribbean countries this month. The US has already made a series of moves, especially the passing of the Ta
iwan Assurance Act by the House of Representatives, which has raised tensions across the Taiwan Straits.上海会所品茶微信
As part of its Indo-Pacific strategy, the US has been trying to woo Japan, Australia and India to form a “
quadrilateral alliance”－known as Quad－aimed at containing China. But as the US pres上海会所
ident’s “America first” agenda is in defiance of the norms followed by the international community, including US all
上海会所品茶微信ies, and considering its huge economic exchanges with China, India is reluctant to side with the US in order to avoid of
fending any party and ending up as a victim of the conflict between the world’s two largest economies.
And since Japan is also reluctant to blindly toe the US line, Washington is using the上海会所品茶微信
“Taiwan card” to bolster its Indo-Pacific strategy and strengthen its presence in the Asia-Pacific region.
By following their foreign masters’ guideline, the island’s politicia上海会所
ns such as Tsai create enough space for the US to play the “Taiwan card”. In fact, thanks to th
e covert support of some Taiwan politicians, the US has intensified its strategic activities－for instance, na上海会所品茶微信
vigating its warships through the Straits five times in the past five months, a frequency too high even by US “s
tandards”－in the Asia-Pacific region. Besides, the US has continued selling arms to the island.
By passing acts and resolutions indicating that the US’ relations with the island’s administration are strong not on
ly in political but also military fields, Washington is trying Beijing’s patience on the Taiwan question.
Worse, the US Congress has attempted to use Taiwan as a means to win brown
ie points in its conflict with the mainland by passing a number of acts related to the isl
and including the Taiwan Assurance Act, Taiwan Travel Act and the Asia Reassurance Initiative Act of 2018.

over a week befo上海会所品茶微信re the G20 summit suggests the DPRK nuclear issue could be discussed between Xi and Trump on the sidelines of the summit.
With Pyongyang seeking economic development, there is an opportunity for China and the DPRK to strengthen their compre
hensive friendship and deepen cooperation. The two sides have already strengthened cooperation in tourism, pe
ople-to-people exchanges and pharmaceuticals, which are allowed by the UN sanctions.
During their meeting, Xi and Kim might discuss how to deepen cooperation in security, including den
uclearization, and trade and regional development, including exploring the potential of T
umen River economic cooperation, and cooperation in developing China’s northeast region.
To work with other countries in such programs, the DPRK has to expedite the denuclearization process and focus on its eco
nomy, because a peaceful Korean Peninsula will be conducive to the DPRK’s economic development, and vice-versa.
