More than 上海419论坛s into its orbit, Tiangong II has out

ed its two-year designed life span. The spacecraft helped to pave the way for China’s future manned space station, according to the agency.

Wang Ya’nan, editor-in-chief of Aerospace Knowledge magazine, said Tiangong II c

上海419论坛ontributed a great deal to China’s efforts to build its own space station as it accommodated astronauts’ sta

y and verified life-support and in-orbit refueling technologies, all of which are essential to running a space station.

China plans to start putting together its first manned space station around 2020. It is expected to be fully operational aro上海419论坛女神会所

und 2022 and to operate for about 15 years, according to the China Academy of Space Technology.

In 2024, it would become the world’s only space station if t上海419论坛

he United States-led International Space Station is retired that year as planned.

The multimodule station, named Tiangong, will be mainly composed of three parts-a core module attached to two s

上海419论坛pace labs-and have a combined weight of more than 90 tons, the academy said.

The scientific communities of China and the United States still have room for exchanges and cooperation despite ongo

ing trade and technology disputes between the two countries, a senior science policy researcher said.上海419论坛

Stability, development, exchanges and global integration will remain C

hina’s top priorities in the coming decade. Hence, it is crucial for China and the US to respect, ratio

上海419论坛女神会所nally perceive and adjust to each other’s national needs, Pan Jiaofeng, president of the Chinese Academy of Sci

ences’ Institutes of Science and Development, told China Daily in an interview.

The scientific communities should also enhance mutual exchanges and integration of standards to jointly tackle glob上海419论坛

al issues including climate change, aging populations, energy and resources, and natural disasters, he said.

In recent years, China has seen substantial development in science and technol

上海419论坛女神会所ogy due to strong government planning and support, bigger investments, greater efforts from tech en

terprises and sweeping reforms tailored to the needs of researchers to unleash their full innovative potential.

China’s budget for research and development increased to 2.18 percent of its GDP l

Planned deal worth around $2.2 billion seriously violates international law

China said on Friday it will place sanctions on US companies involved in the lates上海419论坛女神会所

t planned military sale to Taiwan, which it said has impaired its sovereignty and national security.

The planned sale worth an estimated $2.2 billion seriously violates international law and b上海419论坛

asic norms of international relations, as well as the one-China principle and the stipulations of the three Chi

na-US joint communiques, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang in a statement.

上海419论坛女神会所China made the sanctions decision in order to safeguard its national interests, Geng said.

In a news conference in Beijing, Geng again urged the United States to call off the sale and cut military ties with Taiwan.

The US announced its State Department has approved the sale, the largest since US President Donald Trump took office in Jan上海419论坛女神会所

uary 2017. The announcement came just days before the arrival of Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen to the US.

Tsai arrived in the US on Thursday, Reuters reported, and is spending four nights in th上海419论坛

e US-two on the first leg and two on the way back from a visit to four Caribbean countries.

State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China is “gravely concerned” by Tsa上海419论坛女神会所

i’s transiting the US, and is firmly against any form of official contact between the US and Taiwan.

“Taiwan independence” separatist activities are doomed to fail, and no foreign

intervention is allowed in the Taiwan question, which is purely China’s domestic affair, Wang said in a joint ne

ws conference in Budapest with Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto on Friday.

“No one and no force is able to obstruct the historical process of unifica

tion of the two sides across the Taiwan Straits,” Wang said, urging the US to honor its on

e-China promise and the stipulations of the three China-US joint communiques.

The World Trade Organization has said global trade growth increased by only 3 percent in 2018, and is

set to decline to 2.6 percent in 2019. Besides, the G20 leaders in Osaka said growth remains low an

上海419论坛品茶微信d risks remain tilted to the downside, and most importantly, trade and geopolitical tensions have intensified.

To overcome such challenges, Xi said China would pursue a free, fair and nondiscriminatory trade policy, and play a piv

otal role in achieving strong, sustainable, balanced and inclusive global growth, and overcoming downside risks.

On the other hand, Xi’s speech set the direction for cooperation on global economic governance. As a rules-based trade syste上海419论坛品茶微信

hina spends heavily on government-subsidized housing

China’s fiscal sp上海419论坛女神会所ending on government-subsidized housing saw a rapid increase in 2018 am

id government efforts to curb housing speculation and improve people’s livelihood.

Fiscal expenditures on government-subsidized housing projects totaled 737.2 billion yu

an ($107 billion) last year, up 46.4 percent year-on-year, the Ministry of Finance said in an online statement.

The funds helped the renovation of 6.26 million shantytown units in u

rban areas and 1.9 million dilapidated houses in rural areas, and supported the co

nstruction of the matching facilities for 300,000 public rental housing, the ministry said.

The ministry vowed to strengthen supervision and management of the funds for government

-subsidized housing in 2019, and standardize the financing for shantytown renovation projects.

The country saw stable housing prices last year amid government co

ntrol policies under the principle of “houses are for living in, not for speculation.”

Three years after he was filmed taking part in the

bike protest, Sau上海419论坛品茶微信di authorities arrested Qureiris, then just 13 years old. He was traveling with his fami

ly to Bahrain when he was detained by Saudi border authorities on the King Fahd causeway that connects the two countries.

At the time, he was considered by lawyers and activists to be the youngest known political prisoner in Saudi Arabia.

Now, at the age of 18, Qureiris is facing the death penalty after being

held for almost four years in pre-trial detention, CNN has learned.n April, Saudi Arabia anno

unced it had executed 37 men who, according to rights group Reprieve, were mostly from the kingdom’s Shia minor

ity. The country has one of the highest rates of execution in the world, and has frequently been criticized by rig

hts groups for executing people who were minors at the time of the commission of crimes.

Qureiris was 10 years old when he committed at least one of those alleged crimes in his charge sheet, CNN has learn

ed. He was charged with accompanying his activist brother, Ali Qureris, on a motorcycle ride to a police sta

tion in the eastern Saudi city of Awamiya, where Ali allegedly threw Molotov cocktails at the facility.

The region’s measures for mountaineering safety mana

nagement include controlling the number of climbers, limiting the climbing sea

son, setting high requirements and maintaining the high-traffic climbing routes.

“Seasonally, since 2017, we have only allowed climbers on Moun

t Qomolangma in spring due to favorable weather conditions of the northern slope,” Trinley said.

“Controlling the number of climbers is another key measure to ensure both mountaineering safety and ecological protection,” he said.

In 2019, the north face routes had a total of 362 people, including 142 foreign climbers fr

om 33 countries, 12 domestic climbers and 208 Nepali Sherpa mountaineering guides, the association said.

Within the last few years, the overall number of climbers has averaged 290, the association said.

More than 300,000 papers on AI have been publish

ed globally from 2013 to 2018, among which around 74,000 were published by Chinese researche

rs and 52,000 by their US counterparts, and the US dominated in fields such as citation impact, number of p

atents, and the scale of companies and funds, the report said, adding that China lacks basic theoretical research.

The report was compiled by the Research Center for AI Develo

pment, which was established last year by the Ministry of Science and Technology.

“China and the United States are the two main pillars of the world’s AI r

esearch network, and the most cooperation on AI research happened between the two n

ations-the link between them is the strongest,” said Li Xiuquan, deputy director of the center. “But more and mo

The image, which showed a ringlike structure with a da

xy in the nearby Virgo galaxy cluster. It is 55 million light-years from Earth and has a mass 6.5 billion times that of the sun.

It was one example of the role that Tianma has played in international coordinated

observations. Its super sensitivity has made its observations useful as a reference by which other parti

cipants in the network can adjust their data, according to the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory.

“Tianma elevated the image quality of the EAVN, by about 50 percent, making a great co
