China to remain steadfast protecting national security

China welcomes the United States’ willingness to develop a stable mi

litary-to-military relationship, but will remain steadfast in safeguarding national sove

reignty and security, a senior Chinese military official said on Saturday in Singapore.

In a keynote speech at the annual Shangri-La Dialogue on Saturday morning, acting US Defen

se Secretary Patrick Shanahan said that China and the US can still have a cooperative relati

onship. Although competition does exist between the two countries, it does not always mean conflict, he added.

Shanahan also noted some “destabilizing activities” in Asia and emphasized the US’s military

presence and commitment in the region. He called for more communication between the US and Chi

nese militaries to settle their differences and build a constructive relationship.

If they wanted a replay of what happened to ZTE, a Chinese company which relies heavily on outsider

The Plan B Huawei has just revealed — a series of self-developed chips — is only part of what makes it an enterprise of strategic insight, and hence resilience. Over

time, that insight has rewarded it with a viable biosphere that its founder Ren Zhengfei believes will enable it to weat

That may be why, even after Google barred Huawei from some Android featur

I was very much impressed by President Xi’s speech.

He mentioned China has come to the stage of harmonious development between man and nature.

We feel China is now beginning to attach importance to the natural

environment, so everyone can have a better living environment and the lives of the Chinese pe

could not agree more with President Xi on the great importance of green development and preservation of nature.

The state of the natural environment affects every living being, as well as the lives of future generations.

For instance, if one doesn’t take care of one’s eyes, one’s eyesight might reduce.

And if one disregards the quality of air one breathes, reduction might occur to one’s lifespan.

Thus green development is the cornerstone of the future.
We think this is a good thing.

The Chinese government is more concerned about the lives of ordinary people, and

the government will balance the development of industry and the quality of people’s lives.
