Trump arrives in Japan for state visitUS President Donald Trump

 arrived in Japan for a state visit that will make him the first world leader to meet the country’s new emperor.

Trump and first lady Melania Trump arrived Saturday aboard Air Force One after a 14-hour journey. The president was h

eading to a dinner with business leaders at the US Ambassador’s residence in Tokyo after a brief airport welcome.

The visit is part of a continuing charm offensive by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo

Abe that analysts say has spared Japan from far more debilitating retaliatory action by Trump.

The president has refused to lift the threat of slapping potentially devastating US

tariffs on imports of Japanese autos and auto parts on national security grounds.

US tariffs against Japanese aluminum and steel remain.

“Recently, some US politicians have repeatedly made rumors about Huawei but canno

t provide any evidence that other countries have requested,” Lu told a daily news conference.

He noted that the US public is having more and more doubts over the market turbulen

ce and undermined industrial cooperation caused by the trade war and technology war initiated by the US.

“So some US politicians have continually created rumors, tr

ying to mislead the public and stir up ideological opposition, which is illogical,” Lu said.

Ideological differences do not necessarily impede tra

de, industrial and technological cooperation between countries, he said.

ries boasting the concept, which originated in Japan, have sprung up in many cities includi

ng Shanghai, Xi’an, capital of Shaanxi province, and Shenzhen and Guangzhou, both in Guangdong province.

Kong Yanling is a big fan of singles-friendly restaurants. The 25-year-old unattached Xi’an res

However, the waitress at the door told her the restaurant only served large, shared platters. Kong took the hint and left.

She has also found herself dining with strangers involuntarily when waiters have asked if she minded other people sharing her table.

“I don’t mind eating alone, but sometimes things like that really bugged me. I am ve

ry happy to see more singles-friendly restaurants appearing so there is more choice when eating out,” she said.

Father of slain student petitions court for death penalty

It’s been nearly a year since Xie Diao, a postgraduate student of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, was stabbed seven tim

es to death by his high school classmate Zhou Kaixuan at a restaurant outside the school.

Xie Zhonghua, father of Xie Diao, has been immersed in grief in the past year: He often

dreamed of his son, but then would suddenly awaken and start sobbing uncontrollably.

The case will finally be heard in Beijing First Intermediate People’s Court on May 24. To get justice for his son, Xie Zhon

ghua took to the streets and publicized the case, gathering tens of thousands of signatures that he has su

again and again until Xie died. Zhou then rose, holding his arms and assuming a triumphant gesture.

Zhou was later arrested and confessed that he had bought the dagger online in advance.

Since losing their only child, Xie Zhonghua and his wife stop

Ren on Tuesday expressed continued willingness to collaborate with US partners in the future.

Ren’s confidence lies in Huawei’s capacity to serve its customer

s under “any circumstances”, and has the support of its growing clientele at home and abroad.

“Last week, in public bidding by China Mobile, we won contracts to build 5G networks for 37 of the 40 cities,” Ren dis

closed. “Our capacity for mass production is enormous, and will not drop much with US restrictions”.

The otherwise low-profile Huawei leader made no secret about his pride

in his company’s technologies: “Huawei’s 5G will absolutely not be affected. When it c

omes to 5G technologies, others will definitely not catch up in two or three years”.

That was why the confident Ren said the 90-day exemption Washington declared on Monday was dispensable.
