Xi, Morales to strengthen strategic ties

CHINESE President Xi Jinping and visiting Bolivian President Juan Evo Morales Ayma yesterday agreed to establish a strategic partnership to promote greater development of bilateral relations. Xi pointed out that since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Bolivia 33 years ago, their relations have continued to steadily develop and are currently the best they’ve ever been. China appreciates that Bolivia firmly adheres to the one-China policy, actively responds to the Belt and Road Initiative, and vigorously promotes the deepening of China-Latin America relations, said Xi. “We are willing to work with Bolivia to establish a strategic partnership between the two countries as an important opportunity to continuously deepen exchanges and cooperation in various fields, push bilateral relations to a new level and open up new prospects,” Xi said. The Chinese side is open to importing more Bolivian farm and ranch products, he added. Xi suggested the two countries become strategic partners of multilateral coordination and continue to coordinate positions on United Nations affairs as well as major international issues such as sustainable development and climate change. He called on the two sides to jointly safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of developing countries, build a new type of international relationship featuring mutual respect, fairness, justice and win-win cooperation and join hands in building a community of shared future for mankind. Morales said Bolivia hopes to jointly build the Belt and Road and to strengthen practical cooperation in various fields with China, so as to promote China-Latin America cooperation and make greater contributions to world peace, development, fairness and justice. “China’s support and aid to Bolivia’s economic and social development never attaches any political conditions,” said Morales. Xi said that the essence of China-Latin America cooperation is South-South cooperation, featuring mutual aid and support, complementary advantages, and cooperation with win-win results. He said the Belt and Road Initiative has provided a new platform for China-Latin America cooperation.

Treating sewage helps enhance quality of life

When Zhang Laiyi first heard of a giant box that could purify her home’s sewage, she didn’t believe it.“I’d seen wastewater treatment plants on TV before, but I never expected to have one in our village. A long time ago, we actually used to irrigate our land with domestic wastewater,” said Zhang, a resident of Yongting Village in Anhui Province.“Since we no longer use wastewater for irrigation, it would drain directly into a ditch near our house. It smelled terrible, especially in summer,” Zhang added.With over 5,000 people in the village, the situation has improved since the first solar-powered sewage treatment facility came into operation in 2017.Connected by sewer pipes, Zhang’s domestic sewage now flows directly into the box-shaped facility.“This facility can treat wastewater for around 40 households. The water quality in our village is much better now. We’ve even seen tadpoles and small fish around the facilities outflow pipe,” said Chen Houquan, deputy town head.So far, the town has installed nine sewage treatment facilities. But Chen said it’s far from enough.“As residents live in scattered rural areas, our facilities can only cover 30 percent of them,” he said.A sewage treatment plant is set to be built in the town in 2020, and each village will be equipped with one sewage treatment facility, covering all the residents in the town.The General Office of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the General Office of the State Council unveiled a three-year action plan to improve the rural living environment in February.The plan said that improving the rural living environment is an important task for the country to accomplish its goal of building a moderately prosperous society by 2020.It has great significance to the well-being of farmers and harmony of rural society, according to the plan, which listed a number of key tasks in rural areas in the following years, including better garbage sorting, upgraded toilets, and improved residential sewage treatment and village management.In Datangyan Village in Jiangsu Province, sewage treatment has significantly changed the lives of locals.Beauty of hometown“Rain usually spreads sewage everywhere in the village before we had sewage facilities. Water quality, as well as the image of the village, were damaged by the smelly wastewater,” said 69-year-old villager Chu Baixiang.“It helps bring back the beauty of our hometown,” Chu added.So far, a sewage treatment network with two sewage treatment devices has been set up in the village. Detailed sewage treatment information including the flow process and daily sewage treatment capacity will be published everyday.Datangyan Village is under the jurisdiction of Yixing City, which is located in the Taihu Lake Conservation Area.As home to more than 200,000 households, the treatment facility has made a remarkable impact on the water quality of Taihu Lake, one of the country’s largest freshwater lakes.Jiangsu Province issued a document in May suggesting the province speed up its construction of sewage treatment facilities, expand the sewage treatment networks and improve rural area management.

Kim visits China again as US puts off war games with SK

CHINESE President Xi Jinping held talks in Beijing yesterday with DPRK leader Kim Jong Un, who is on his third visit to China this year. Kim arrived in Beijing yesterday, just a week after his historic summit in Singapore with US President Donald Trump. The two leaders had a candid and in-depth exchange of views on the current development of relations between China and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the situation on the Korean Peninsula. They agreed to safeguard, consolidate and develop China-DPRK relations, and jointly push forward the sound momentum of peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula to make a positive contribution to safeguarding world and regional peace, stability, prosperity and development. Also yesterday, South Korea’s Foreign Ministry said Seoul shares with Beijing the strategic goal of the Korean Peninsula’s complete denuclearization. South Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman Noh Kyu-duk told a press briefing that Seoul and Beijing continue to cooperate and share the strategic goal of the peninsula’s complete denuclearization and a lasting peace settlement. He said the two nations have closely communicated and cooperated with each other on issues, including exchanges between South Korea and the DPRK, and between the DPRK and the United States. The spokesman said the government anticipates China’s constructive role in resolving issues and referred to Kim’s visit to China. Earlier in the day, US Defense Department said it has suspended all planning for joint military drills with South Korea in August. Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said in a statement that the decision was “consistent with President Trump’s commitment in concert with our Republic of Korea ally.” “The United States military has suspended all planning for this August’s defensive ‘war game,’” she said, adding that no decisions have been made over subsequent military exercises. The suspended drills refer to the annual South Korea-US Ulchi Freedom Guardian military exercise. DPRK has denounced them as a rehearsal for northward invasion and a violation of the spirit of the Panmunjom Declaration issued during the inter-Korean summit in late April. The most-anticipated move came a week after the Kim-Trump summit. They issued a joint statement after the meeting, promising to build new bilateral relations and work toward the “complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”
