That China has responded to the US trade aggression in

such a restrained manner and conducted the talks with the utmost sincerity may have misled the US administration into thinking it has pushed Beijing onto the back foot.

But China’s responsible attitude and its desire to settle the dispute through consultations should not be viewed as signs of weakness.

Indeed, its stance could not be clearer: The US can persist in trying to coerce China into acce

pting its unreasonable demands, but no matter how hard it tries, China will not knuckle under.

China does not want to enter into a trade war with the US; but that does not mean it is afraid of one.

China agreed to hold trade talks with the US not because it feared what the

US might do or because it is worried about losing its trade with the US, but because it

genuinely believes that dialogue is the best way for countries to resolve their differences and find ways to benefit each ot

her, and because, as a responsible country, it always keeps the bigger picture and longer time frame in mind.

Videos on social media showed the plane crash-landin

 and then speeding along the runway with flames pouring from its fuselage.

People could be seen leaping onto an inflatable slide at the front and

running from the blazing plane as columns of black smoke billowed into the sky.

Another video shot inside the cabin showed roaring flames outside the window and passengers crying out in panic.

Yevdokimov said he believed the plane burst into flames on landing, most likely because of full fuel tanks.

Several of the 78 people on board said they believed lightning was the cause of the tragedy, wh

ich came at the end of several days of public holidays following Workers’ Day on May 1.

Passenger Pyotr Yegorov told media: “We had just taken off when the plane

was hit by lightning. … The landing was very hard, we almost passed out from fear.

Li Qiang, director of the Shenzhou Institute’s postgradua

raduate department, said China has trained hundreds of foreign space engineers since the mid-1990s.

However, those training sessions were mostly occasional, often accompanied a satellite export deal, and were mainly focu

sed on ground-based control and applications of satellites rather than their design and production, the director said.

“However, in recent years, along with the expansion in our cooperation in the space indu

stry with other countries, many of our foreign partners voiced their hopes that we could hold some sort of syst

ematic training programs to help them create their own spacecraft designers and technicians,” he said.

Therefore, he said, “We decided to open a two-year postgraduate prog

ram and then sent the message to countries having space cooperation with China.”

From the nine photos uploaded by Han, people could

 see three panda cubs frolicking behind a green fence and climbing the fence, along with two h

uman hands touching the nose and head of a cub. The one touching the head had red nail polish.

The post angered netizens who criticized Han for endangering the cub, fearing diseases from humans might pass to the animals.

A week later, Han deleted her posts, saying she loved pandas and would behav

e herself in the future. She also said she loved other animals and kept two dogs at home.

One netizen condemned Han for not considering the spread of the canine distemper virus to the panda cub from her two dogs.

The virus was reported to have caused the deaths of captive giant pandas in 1997, wh

en three of the bears died at the Chongqing Zoo in Sichuan’s neighboring Chongqing municipality.

Revolutionary leader Sun Yat-sen once suggested that

an underwater tunnel should be built to connect the railways in Nanjing

, but his dream was not realized for about 100 years. In 1929, Sun’s casket was transpor

ted to Pukou district along the Tientsin-Pukow Railway before being ferried to downtown Nanjing.

In 1930, John Alexander Low Waddell, a 76-year-old Canadian who was a

traffic consultant to the Chinese government, said the Yangtze in Nanjing was too deep and

was flowing too fast to construct a bridge, according to the Academy of Sociology.

The government launched large-scale investigations in 1936 and 1946 before dropping the pla

n. In 1956, the State Council, China’s Cabinet, proposed constructing the Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge.

To test the bridge’s load-bearing capacity, Xu Shiyou, who comma

nded the Nanjing Military Region, ordered an armored regim

ent to drive 118 amphibious tanks on the newly built structure at 8 am on Sept 25, 1969.

On March 31, two Chinese People’s Liberation Army Ai

r Force Shenyang J-11 fighter jets flew across the so-called median line of t

he Taiwan Straits, prompting a strong reaction by Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen. She vo

wed a “forceful expulsion” of mainland fighters should they cross the line again.

A former official on the island, Lai Ching-te, said in

a recent interview that the pro-secession Democratic Progres

sive Party, of which Tsai and Lai are members, is protecting Taiwan by pursuing independence.

Responding to both questions, Ma said the flight was part of the PLA’s scheduled exercise this year.

“Protecting national sovereignty and territorial integrity is the sacred duty of the PLA,” he s

aid. “Tsai’s wild talk means she is scared. We warn them not to play with fire. Don’t even think about it.”

As for Lai’s comment, Ma said it was an example of “confusing right and wrong”.
