Le Yucheng, China’s vice-minister of foreign affairs, and his Japanese

?澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊女神会所counterpart, Takeo Akiba, was held at the Karuizawa mountain resort in Japan’s Nagano prefecture.

They had what was described as candid exchanges about bilateral and regional issues and said they would push

forward the consensus reached between President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinz?澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊

o Abe at the Group of 20 Summit in Osaka in June, a Foreign Ministry statement issued after the dialogue said.

“Both China and Japan advocated building a relationship that meets the requirements of the new era,” it said.

?澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊女神会所The resumption of the China-Japan strategic dialogue is a key sign that Beijing a

nd Tokyo have pushed forward their bilateral relations on the right track and forged closer ties, said Lu Hao, a rese

archer at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ Institute of Japanese Studies.

Official exchanges and communication mechanisms, includ?澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊

?澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊女神会所Lu said the strategic dialogue mechanism plays a vital role for the two neighbors, especially as they are both fa

“The dialogue not only focuses on improving bilateral ties but also touches on

The tariff plan’s biggest influence on China is that the country’s participation in th

Ex-legislator targets US, ‘pro-Taiwan independence’ forces and liberal studies澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊女神会所

The United States and “pro-Taiwan independence” forces are to blame for recent tu

澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊eople’s Congress, who said links between the violent vandals and external forces have surfaced.

The observation by Rita Fan Hsu Lai-tai, who served in the nation’s top legislature, cam

The ulterior motive is to throw Hong Kong into major turmoil, the former pr

esident of the Legislative Council told China Daily in an exclusive interview on Thursday.

澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊”When Hong Kong is in a chaotic state, the US can unsettle China, while people from Taiwan in favor of independence

will say ‘one country, two systems’ is not applicable to Taiwan because it is a failure in Hong Kong,” Fan said.

“Due to the rapid rise of China, the US always sees China as a big threat.澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊

If Hong Kong is unsettled, the city will lose its functions of contributing to the nation’s

development, with the trade dispute being one of the US tactics to unsettle China.

Beijing will push forward its waste sorting legislation soon, and the newly revised regul澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊品茶微信

ation will clarify an individual’s responsibility to sort domestic waste, a senior official said.

A municipal regulation in Shanghai covering domestic waste management had taken effect on Monday and required every household and institution to sort澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊

their trash into four categories: recyclable waste, hazardous waste, household food waste and residual waste.

Sun Xinjun, director of Beijing Municipal Commission of Urban Management, said Beijing will follow suit soon without giving a possible date.

“If the garbage is not sorted, the resident may face a fine of up to 200 yuan ($30),” he said澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊品茶微信

, adding that the penalty will be no less than Shanghai’s garbage classification punishment.

Different from the four categories of separating trash in Shanghai, Beijing will use four other garbage classification sta

澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊品茶微信dards: recyclables, kitchen waste, hazardous waste and other waste, according to Sun.

Some departments and public institutions in the capital hav

e already implemented waste management. Beijing produces nearly 26,000 metric tons of do澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊

mestic waste every day, and 29 garbage disposal terminal facilities are already operating at their full capacity.

ch was launched in Beijing by the company in 2009 and has since expanded into dozens of Chinese cities.

“The first reason to form a band was to attract more girls,” says the singer-songwriter Gao Xiaosong, who formed his own band in 1990 while he was studying rada澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊

r engineering at Tsinghua University in Beijing. “But the most important thing was that when I learned to play guitar I wanted to explore more be

autiful sounds of the instruments, so I was eager to find people who shared my interests and who wanted to play music together with me.”

Gao is credited with creating a music genre during the 1990s called “campus folk music”, which won a

澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊品茶微信large fan base in China then with poetic lyrics about youth, romance and friendship, accompanied by guitar.

One of the major contributors to indie music’ development in the country is the emerg

ing live house venues and small bars, which offer the indie rock bands stages to perform.

?live bar called School is among the most popular places for indie music bands and music fans.

School, tucked in a narrow hutong in downtown Beijing, was co-founded by Liu Fei, a former band agent and music festival organizer, about nine years ago.

“We wanted to have a place to enjoy music and drink together so we decided to l澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊品茶微信

aunch School,” says Liu, 36, a Beijing native. “The place connects like-minded people.”

As Liu sat in the two-floor venue he was accompanied by a black dog that he adopted last year. He spotted the stray sitting outside the l

ive bar and decided to take it in. It was the Year of the Dog, so Liu considers her as an omen of good things and named her School, after the club.

“Like us, she really enjoys crowds and loves to listen to music,” Liu says.澳门真人线上亚博担保网千花坊品茶微信

Among the young bands that started to give performances at School and gained a fan base is Penicillin, an indie rock group whose members were all born after 1990.

“They started with performing in front of fewer than 10 people and now they have a stable fan base with about 100,000 fol

lowers on their Sina Weibo account,” says Liu, adding that the lead vocalist and guitarist, nicked-named Xiaole, has the n

atural charisma of a rock star with his solid technique, songwriting talent and onstage composure.

The G20 nations must lead by example on this imperative, Stern said, and especially the world’s two biggest economies, the US and China.

“China is demonstrating leadership through its significant investments in zero-carbon energy, particularly rene

Stern also noted that China can provide even greater leadership through the Belt and Road Initiative if it e
