Elder statesman and former chancellor of the exchequer Ken Clarke said on BBC Radio 4’s Today program that the contest ha

High requirements for mountaineering admission is an

Both overseas and domestic climbers must apply as part of a team, not personally, he said.

Tibet installed a new ladder in a section of the climbing route in 2017, and provided climb

ing ropes as long as 6,000 meters along the path between a section at 6,600 meters and the summit at 8,844 meters.

Cleanup efforts on the mountain involve both environmental considerations and climbing sa

The US side has conducted a series of negative rheto

ric and actions regarding the Taiwan question, violated the one-

China principle and the three China-US joint communiques,” he said.

“This has undermined China’s sovereignty and security, sent a seriously wrong message to Taiwan secessionists, and

disrupted regional peace and stability,” Shao said, adding that China must, and will be, reunified.

“If anyone tries to separate Taiwan from the mainland, the Chinese

military will adamantly protect its territorial integrity at all costs,” he said.

“It looks like it’s going to be a big win for the Brexit

Party,” Farage told reporters in Southampton in southern E

ngland where vote tallies from across the southeast region were being collated.

“The intelligence I get is that the Brexit party is doing pretty well,” sa

id Farage, who headed one of the two Brexit campaigns in the 2016 referendum.

While May was forced to delay Brexit after agreeing a deal that the British parliament and much of her party reject

ed, the Labour Party has voiced both support for another referendum and a promise to honour the result of the 2016 vote.

The impact of such a severe election drubbing for the major parties is

unclear though potential successors to May are calling for a more decisive Brexit, while L

abour leader Jeremy Corbyn is under pressure to openly support another referendum.

tinue to purchase China-made goods if there are no substitut

Research released by the International Monetary Fund on Friday showed that some of these tariffs hav

e been passed on to US consumers, while others have been absorbed by importers leading to lower profit margins.

US restrictions on high-tech exports to China will push up Washington’s trade deficit with China, an

d rising prices could also reverse the low inflation in the US. Meanwhile, any speculative trading on the

Chinese currency amid its depreciation pressure will “inevitably suffer from a huge loss”, Guo said in his speech.

To eliminate bad outcomes from trade tensions, further opening-up in China’s services sec

tor, together with high-tech development supported by artificial intelligence, will help lift Chinese eco

nomic growth from 6.3 percent to around 7 percent by 2035, said Zhu Min, a former deputy managing director at the IMF.

The China-US trade disputes have significantly influe

enced the renminbi’s performance, said Wang Shengzu, co-head of Investment Strategy Group Asia Goldman Sachs.

But the currency is unlikely to slip out of a reasonable range, assuming there is no big shock from the trade talks, Wang said.

As a sound base for a stable renminbi, “the Chinese economy has shown sig

ns of bouncing up, shown by the faster-than-expected growth of industrial output, ret

ail sales, and credit in the first quarter, and this means that economic activity is improving with supportive pol

icies”, said Wang.Liu Shiyu, China’s former top securities regulator, was under investigation for alleged violations of

the law, according to a statement Sunday from the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.

ei Jianguo, a former vice-minister of commerce, said US bus

inesses and consumers will pay the cost amid hefty levies, which will eventually add significant pressure on the US economy.

The US government’s moves risk sparking a full-blown trade

war with China, and China is fully prepared for any possibility, Wei said.

Economists at Goldman Sachs said in a research note that recent data showed the costs of Washington’s tariffs on China last year

had fallen “entirely” on US businesses and households, with no clear reduction in prices charged by Chinese exporters.

The bank said that US consumer prices are higher, partly because Chinese exporters have not low

ered their prices to better compete in the US market. In addition, some US producers “op

portunistically” increased prices in response to protection from Chinese competitors, it said.

Baidu came under fire in 2016 when Wei Zexi, a 21-year

old student from Xidian University in Shaanxi province, died from a rare cancer of the soft tissue. Wei was re

searching the disease on Baidu and came across an advertisement for treatments that proved ineffective.

After Wei’s death, Baidu announced a sweeping restructuring and optimization of its medical business, especially regardi

ng its paid listing practices. It also tightened regulations on medical promotion and enforced clear labeling rul

es that differentiate advertisements from credible medical information, according to media reports.

However, medical advertising remains one of the key sources of income for Baidu, and some are still trying to exploit the s

ystem. In April, the police in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, detained a team of medical fraudsters who drove up r

ankings on Baidu’s research results to promote faulty hospitals to patients, local authorities said.
