Another 24-hour bookshop in Beijing that allows customers to get in touch with their dreams, and with the past, too, is China Boo

On July 20, four years to the day when the shop opened, half of about a dozen desks in its reading-for

One shop assistant and one guard were on duty, their shifts due to end at 8 am the following day, and they seemed happy to

offer assistance to customers. In these shops that help can go beyond locating books, because apart from having cafes, a压博足球娱乐平台419论坛

Zhang is skeptical about the chances of unstaffed bookshops, because one of the things that 24-hour bookshops have goin

“If you ask me, bookshops with no people seem a bit vulnerable.”

ible missile deployment 阿拉爱压博足球娱乐平台ncerns in Asia-Pacif

Possible missile deployment raising concerns in Asia-Pacific, Beijing says

The United States’ intention to deploy new missiles in the Asia-Pacific region has raised co?阿拉爱压博足球娱乐平台

ncerns, and China will take countermeasures if necessary, the Foreign Ministry and experts said.

?阿拉爱压博足球娱乐平台女神会所Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for the Foreign Ministry, said China will not “sit idly by” and wat

ch its interests being compromised if the US deploys intermediate-range missiles in the region.

She said China “will not allow any country to stir up trouble on?阿拉爱压博足球娱乐平台

our doorstep” and “will take all necessary measures to safeguard nati

onal security interests” in a statement published on the ministry’s website late on Monday.?阿拉爱压博足球娱乐平台女神会所

The comments came days after the US unilaterally withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty sig

ned with the Soviet Union in 1987, which banned land-based missiles with a range of 500 to 5,500 kilometers.?阿拉爱压博足球娱乐平台

Following the withdrawal, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said over the weekend

that he wanted to deploy midrange conventional missiles in the Asia-Pacific within months.

?阿拉爱压博足球娱乐平台Hua warned that international and region

al security will be severely undermined if the US insists on the deployment.

“For a long time, the US has been grossly interfering in the affairs of regional countries in the Asia-Pacific,” she said.

“Politically, it has tried to drive a wedge between them by promoting a so-ca?阿拉爱压博足球娱乐平台女神会所

lled Indo-Pacific strategy. It has adopted a selfish, beggar-thy-neighbor approach in econo

mic affairs while making military deployment and strengthening military allies in the region.”

?阿拉爱压博足球娱乐平台The US has been shifting blame by using China as an excuse on issues including the INF

Treaty and hyping up the so-called China missile threat in disregard of the facts, Hua said.

“Despite strong international opposition, the US chose?阿拉爱压博足球娱乐平台女神会所

to withdraw from the INF Treaty. Now it is hastily seeking to deploy interm

ediate-range missiles in Asia. This, in fact, reveals the real intention of the US withdrawal from the treaty,” she added.

He argued the $300 billion Chinese exports were mainly daily consumption products. As the tariffs are enforced, it will s

timulate inflation in the US, which has been increasing in recent years faster than the consumer price index.

压博足球娱乐平台千花坊Zhou Mi, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Econ

omic Cooperation, said imposing tariffs will only put on more risk on the supply side of US’ industry chain.

“China is a developing country while the US is a post-industrialized country. A large part of their materials to make con压博足球娱乐平台千花坊女神会所

sumer goods and industrial products depends on imports,” Zhou said, adding that tariffs will only leave the US with two ch

oices—buying from China with a higher cost, or buying from other countries with uncertain quantity and quality.
