Comments Off on n macroeconomic terms, the China-US trade dispute ha
as added huge uncertainties to the US economy and raised the likelihood of recession. Which could
thwart the US president’s chances of being re-elected in 2020. And the trade dispute could pre
vent the US from taking the measures it intends to in order to consolidate its national power.
As for China, the significant deviation in the US’ stances and objectives
in the trade talks should be a warning for it to more strictly stick to its principles. And the
fact that the US wants to challenge the laws of economics should not be reason for China to try to do the same.
China may grant official 5G licenses, instead of the interim licenses previously planned, to tel

on, ages, gender ratio, birth and deaths of wild pandas, who live in deep mountains and are hard to track,” said Chen Peng, a researcher w

Comments Off on Huawei has said that it is willing to sign a “no-spy” agreeme
nt with countries that commit to its equipment. And this may po
nt to a reasonable solution as it offers a way out for international partners in the West, which h
ave been caught in the middle of the US-waged campaign against Huawei, to cooperate with the Chinese company.
The security of 5G networks is a technical issue, and it should be addressed as such. Security prin
ciples should be based on verifiable facts and technical data rather than ideology or a vendor’s country of origin.
However, judging by its ill treatment of Huawei since last year, t
he US will continue with its persecution and has no intention of changing its ways.
The victimization of Huawei shows the world’s largest economy no longer wants to uphold the core values that govern free trade
and fair market competition. And it is willing to use its superpower status, so that, by hook or by crook, it can obstruct co
mpetitors that might challenge its competitive edge in science and technology.

Boris Johnson, the face of the campaign for Britain to leave the Europea
n Union, said he would stand as a candidate to replace May as Conservative leader.
May’s Brexit deal has been rejected three times by parliament, and weeks of talks with the opposition Labour Party, the idea
of which was deeply unpopular with many Conservatives, have failed to find a consensus on the way forward.
A BBC reporter said on Thursday those talks were due to be
called off soon after the ruling Conservatives gave up on any hope of a resolution.
Comments Off on Mired in Brexit deadlock and forced to delay Britain’s M
March 29 exit from the EU, May’s Conservatives suffered major losses in local election
s this month and are trailing in opinion polls before May 23 European Parliament elections.
With Labour and Brexit-supporting rebels in the Conservatives p
lanning to vote against her deal, it is unlikely to be approved as things stand.
Pro-Brexit Conservative lawmakers were unimpressed with May’s failure to set a firm date to quit. One, who declined to be na
med, described it as “yet further procrastination which is causing appalling damage to the Conservative Party.”
Another, Andrew Bridgen, said May was “an increasingly beleaguered and isolated prim
e minister who is desperate to salvage something from her premiership and is prepared to drive thro
ugh an agreement that would fatally hamstring any future prime minister in negotiations with the EU.”
