Ministry warns US ag上海419additional tariffs

China firmly opposes the United States’ new threat to impose additional tariffs on about $550 billio

n worth of Chinese imports, a spokesperson of the Ministry of Commerce said on Saturday.In a brief statem上海419品茶微信

ent, the ministry said the US act is unilateral, trade protectionism, and using maximum pressure.It violates the con

上海419sensus reached between the top leaders of the two countries, severely under

mines the multilateral trading system and normal international trade order, and Washington will eat the bitter fruit

s of its own action, the ministry said.”Such unilateral and bullying acts of trade protectionism and extreme pres上海419品茶微信

sure run counter to the consensus of the heads of state of China and the United States, and run counter to the principles of

mutual respect, equality and mutual benefit,” the spokesperson said.The ministry urged Washington to imm上海419

ediately stop its wrongful deeds, otherwise it will “bear all the consequences.”The ministry warned the US a上海419

dministration not to misjudge the situation, nor to underestimate the determination of the Chinese peo

上海419品茶微信ple.”China strongly urges the United States not to misjudge the situation, or underestimate the determination of the Chi

nese people. It must immediately stop its erroneous practices, or bear all the consequences,” the spokesperson sa

id.ow dare it? That was the message from the United States leader, who, announ上海419

cing extra tariffs on $550 billion worth of Chinese imports, declared that China “should not” have put tariffs on a furth

er $75 billion of US products.Since China’s tariffs were in retaliation to the US’ tariffs on $300 billion of Chinese上海419品茶微信

imports, clearly what he described as a “politically motivated” move has put his nose out of joint.

i calls for villagers to a 上海419chieve rural vitalization

President Xi Jinping has encouraged residents of a mountainous township in Fujian provi

 上海419nce to continue their unrelenting efforts to consolidate poverty reduction outcomes and achieve rural vitalization.

Xi, who also is general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Co 上海419

mmission, made the remark in a letter replying to residents of the township of Xiadang, in the province’s Shou­ning county.

 上海419In a letter to Xi, the villagers wrote they had shaken off poverty and e

xpressed their gratitude to the CPC Central Committee and the general secretary.

Xi’s letter, published on Tuesday, recalled the three arduous

journeys he made to the township, saying he still has vivid memories of the area. 上海419品茶微信

Xi worked in Fujian between 1985 and 2002. He made his first trip to the township to lea

rn about poverty alleviation and provide instructions on the work on July 19, 1989, when he was Par

ty secretary of Ningde. The township was once among the most remote and poorest areas in Ningde. 上海419

It took him a three-hour car ride and a two-hour walk in scorching sum

mer heat to reach the township, which had no paved roads at the time, according to

Xinhua News Agency. He made another two trips to township, later that year and in 1996. 上海419品茶微信

Xi expressed his delight after learning that the township had shaken off poverty, and he offered hearty congratulations to villagers.

After 30 years of unremitting efforts, Xiadang has shifted from being almost inaccessible to being easily reached and has 上海419

been transformed inside and out, with residents having an increasing sense of gains and happiness, Xi said.

It has been a vivid example of the truth of such sayings as, “A slow sp

 上海419品茶微信arrow should make an early start” and “Little strokes fell great oaks”, he said.

Xi said he hopes the villagers will forge ahead with a persistent spirit, enhance their confi

dence and make sustained and arduous efforts to consolidate the outcomes of poverty reduction.

He also encouraged them to explore a path of rural vitalization with the characteristics of eastern Fujian during the process. 上海419品茶微信

The letter to Xi was written by six Party members on behalf of all villagers in the township.

Xinhua contributed to this story.
