Editor’s note:?Xi Jinping Thought on Diplomacy is the fundamental guideline for China’s diployabo亚博体育vip419品茶微信

At the start of the new semester in August, 105 students at Niles North High School in Skokie, Illinois, had chosen to learn Chinese as a world language.

Four months ago, a group of over 40 students from this school received a letter inyabo亚博体育vip419

“American public schools are increasingly aware of th

Recalling the letter exchange with China’s leader, Bowen said he was most impres

sed that the students received a personalized response. “We are honored to receive it,” he said.yabo亚博体育vip419

When the students in their first year of studying Chinese began practicing asking qu

estions and writing, their teacher had them write a letter to Xi as practice, Bowen said.

The teacher “wayabo亚博体育vip419品茶微信s pleased with how well they did, so the students voted on the letter they wanted to send”, he said.

In the letter, the students said that they love the Chinese language and character

s, as well as music and Chinese food, and that they would love to have the chance to visit China.

yabo亚博体育vip419The letter was sent to the Chinese consulate in Chicago and then sent on to Beijing.

In his reply, Xi welcomed the students to visit China and said he hopes that they will ma

ke contributions to promoting friendship between the Chinese and American peoples.yabo亚博体育vip419品茶微信

In calling for understanding from the passengers, MTR operations director Adi Lau

yabo亚博体育vip乌托邦Tin-shing said in an open letter on Saturday that the decision to shut down part of

the Kwun Tong line prior to the protest was made after careful considerations of recent situations.

The MTR Corporation decided to suspend railway services on the active section and close some syabo亚博体育vip乌托邦品茶微信

Recently, some radicals sabotaged CCTV cameras in MTR stations, interfer

hreatened the personal safety of those who tried to dissuade them. These inciden

?Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Friday urged South Korea to keep its promises afte

r Seoul decided to terminate a key intelligence-sharing pact between the two countries.yabo亚博体育vip龙凤女神会所

“Regrettably, South Korea is continuing to hurt relations of trust,”

yabo亚博体育vip龙凤Abe told reporters, adding that Seoul had also unilaterally carried out actions that run contra

ry to an accord inked between the two countries in 1965 aimed at settling an ongoing wartime labor dispute.

Separately, Japan’s Defense Minister Takeshi Iwaya said on Friday that the decision by South Korea was “dyabo亚博体育vip龙凤女神会所

isappointing” and that he believed that the present security environment had been “completely misread” by South Korea.

Iwaya added that Japan will continue to ask South Korea to “reconsider” its decision not to extend the General Security

of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA) beyond its expiration in November.yabo亚博体育vip龙凤

His remarks came after Seoul said a day earlier that the intelligence-sharing pact will not be extended owing to Tokyo’s tightening o

f export controls on materials vital to the South Korean technology industry.

yabo亚博体育vip龙凤女神会所It has created a “grave change” in conditions for bila

teral security cooperation, Seoul said, as reported by local media.

Japan’s Foreign Ministry confirmed Friday that South Korea hayabo亚博体育vip龙凤

The GSOMIA pact between both sides, signed in 2016, has enabled the two neighbors to shayabo亚博体育vip龙凤女神会所

Liang Jiajun, a former pilot in Beijing, cringed at the idea of faux meat.

“The first thought that crossed my mind is that they are filled with additives, coloring and?yabo亚博体育vip千花坊

Liu Xinyi, 27, said she ordered a veggie burger with a pl?yabo亚博体育vip千花坊

ant-based pork patty once when traveling in Texas in the United States.

?yabo亚博体育vip千花坊女神会所”I was drawn to this item on the menu due to its lower calories. It contained about 400 calories, compared with about 900 calori

Even her friends with vegetarian dietary habits rarely buy fake meat products.

“It appears to me that they don’t bother to cheat their palates with thes

Despite doubts and complaints, research efforts into better-tasting?yabo亚博体育vip千花坊

meat alternatives are intensifying, and the sector has attracted major investments.

?yabo亚博体育vip千花坊Zhou, the professor, said faux meat is now increasingly consid
