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.

The idea of setting up such a museum came to Kang wh

en he visited a museum of broken relationships in Chengdu, capita

l of Southwest China’s Sichuan province, with two friends in January. They tho

ught it would be a good thing for Taiyuan to have a place for people to bury souvenirs from a failed relationship.

They acted fast and opened the museum after three months’ preparation.

The world’s first museum of broken relationships was founded in Croatia in 2006 by two artists, who

ended their four-year relationship and got the idea of setting up a museum to house their leftover personal items.

China has several museums of broken relationships now, in Nanjing, Chen

gdu, Xi’an, Wuhan, Beijing, Chongqing, Jinan, Harbin, Changsha, Guangzhou and Changchun.

Most Chinese State-owned enterprises are not relevant to tra

ade negotiations. Many are in non-tradable sectors such as property develop

ment, infrastructure, or concrete. Others are basically public utilities in telecoms or power.

Some Chinese car companies are State-owned, usually by provincial govern

ments, but the car business in China is very highly competitive and foreign brands are very successful.

In any case, the continuing growth of an already large private sector should alleviate foreign concerns

about competing with State-owned companies.

During the George W. Bush administration, the US imposed tarif

fs on Chinese steel, arguing that State-owned companies had an unfair advantage. But, US ste

el companies also face higher costs because of increased environmental protection. China’s current emphasis on bu

ilding an “ecological civilization” means that that kind of polluting heavy industry will be less viable.

While educational evaluation has an important role of

conditions of schools, and have severely disrupted education activities, the statement said.

The MOE will therefore continue to regulate such acti

The China Earthquake Administration pledged to enhance its earthquake detection c

apability as it rolls out an experimental project in the country’s tremor-plagued southwestern region.

More than 70 British legislators have urged the government to make sure WikiLeaks found

er Julian Assange faces Swedish justice if prosecutors there reopen a rape allegation against him.

The lawmakers signed a letter late Friday urging Home Secretary Sa

ure Julian Assange can be extradited to Sweden in the event Sweden makes an extradition request.”
