President underlines two-way cooperation, strategic coordination
China and Turkey should enhance mutual strategic trust and respect each other’s core interests
and major concerns on such issues as sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, President Xi Jinping said on Tuesday.
Xi made the remark while meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. Previously, Xi hosted a welcoming ceremony for Erdogan.
Erdogan said that Turkey firmly supports the one-China policy, and that it is a fact that the people of all ethnicities in Xinjian
g are leading a happy life amid China’s development and prosperity. Turkey will not allow anybody to sow dissension among the two countries, he said.
Noting that both China and Turkey are important emerging markets and developin
g countries, Xi said it is of great significance for them to enhance strategic cooperation.
The two countries also should strengthen strategic coordination, consolidate the politica
l foundation of the China-Turkey strategic cooperation and cooperative relationship, a
nd ensure that the bilateral relations always operate on a healthy and stable track, Xi said.
China appreciates that Erdogan has reaffirmed his commitment many times to not allow any forces to carry out anti-Chinese or separatist activities in Turkey, Xi said.
China attaches great importance to Turkey’s stance of supporting China’s fight against te
rrorism, Xi said, adding that China would like to enhance their anti-terrorism cooperation.
Xi said the two sides should enhance connection of development strategies and deepen practical cooperation. Hailing Turkey as an important partner for join
tly building the Belt and Road, Xi said that China would like to speed up connecting the Belt and Road with Turkey’s Middle Corridor plan, and pro
mote the cooperation in areas including trade, investment, science, energy, infrastructure and major projects.

Luckily, Shan had reason to celebrate because he was saved by a new rule.
Right before the wedding, a specific standard was established banning high-priced betrothal gifts, or caili in上海千花坊
Chinese. Other extravagant customs, including holding grand wedding ceremonies or funeral rites as well as inviting an e
xorbitant number of guests and using lots of cars to pick up the bride and her relatives, were also prohibited.上海千花坊

Families of young women envied those who gave lots of money to a bride’s family and held ex

They would ask parents of their soon-to-be sons-in-law for similar treatment, Cai said.
According to the standard, no more than six cars can be used for picking up the bride and her rela

Families who obey the standard may enjoy benefits such as free physical examinations for parents and
newborns at local hospitals. Pregnant women may also receive discounts for examinations during pregnancy, Cai said.
Families who do not obey the rules are required to make a self-critical s

Villagers fall in line
According to the Feixiang district government, more than 1,000 families of young wom

00,000 households in the district have signed commitment letters promising to obey the standard.
Government statistics show that the cost of a wedding has been cut to less than 30,000 yuan, down b
y about 80 percent, and the current cost for a funeral is less than 5,000 yuan, just a sixth of the previous cost.

While some are skeptical about the G20’s usefulness, they said, many
observers point out that its membership is more representative of the current internat
ional balance of power than other blocs formed earlier like the G7, which came into being in 1976.
The G20 initially focused on broad macroeconomic policy, but ha
s expanded its ambit, McBride and Chatzky wrote. Last year’s summit in Argentina focused on f
air and sustainable development, while the previous one in Germany addressed issues including corruption, mon
ey laundering, and international tax havens. At the 2016 summit in China, President Xi Jinping and US President Ba

As part of the preparations for the Osaka G20 summit, the world’s leading think tanks

participants in the oil exploration, refining and retailing sectors to draft efficient policies and measures, he said.
He also said joint campaigns with major coal producing regions will be launched to reduce emissi
ons in coal mining. The emissions in agriculture and solid waste disposal sectors will also be targeted.
