it produces, and thus open a new chapter for China-Africa trade and economic cooperation.

Time ripe for promotin上海乌托邦e in Northeast Asia

The Korean Peninsula is seeing positive signs over denuclearization, with both the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the Republic of Korea making all th

e right gestures. Tension has been eased and motivation for regional cooperation boosted. There cannot be a better time for promoting a regional po上海乌托邦

litical and security agenda, as well as economic and cultural exchange, for a peaceful and prosperous Northeast Asia.

These are the best times for Northeast Asia since the 19th century. Countr

ies in the region were colonized by the Western powers, and later by their Asian neig上海乌托邦

hbor, Japan. After World War II, Northeast Asia was caught in the Cold War and divided into two camps.

It has remained the only region still plagued by the Cold War mentality, because the United States has refused to make上海乌托邦

peace with the DPRK. To defend itself from the US, the DPRK resorted to developing nuclear weapons.

In 2018, the DPRK declared a major shift in its national policy, from the previous parallel developmen上海乌托邦品茶微信

t of nuclear weapons and economy to the current focus on the economy. This move has been viewed as an

上海乌托邦initiative to halt nuclear development and extend an olive branch to the other nations.

The DPRK’s concession on its nuclear development has led to breakthroughs in its foreign relations. Two summits between US President Dona

上海乌托邦ld Trump and DPRK top leader Kim Jong-un have been held, as well as three meetings between the DPRK and ROK leaders.

China-Japan relations, which had hit rock bottom following differences over the Diaoyu Isl

ands, are back on track. The ROK and China have started to mend relations that were strained because of US d上海乌托邦品茶微信

eployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense anti-ballistic missile system in the ROK.

China-DPRK relations reached a new high. The positive signs in this region and in the bilateral relations have created a favo

rable atmosphere for regional economic cooperation. Talks on a trilateral China-Japan-ROK free trade ag

reement have resumed, and Japan has voiced its willingness to engage in the Belt and Road Initiative.上海乌托邦品茶微信

All stakeholders in the region should look at the bigger picture and build a peaceful and prosperous Northeast Asia.

First, all the Northeast Asian countries should reach a consensus on cooperation. All nations should safeguard regional stability and press ah

ead for greater development for the long-term goal of building a peaceful and prosperous region.

Yang Ming, a 33-year-old immobile and partially sighted man from Ch

However, in late April, he noticed trouble brewing in the financial statem

Although they were reluctant at first, his relatives sold the shares at a

slight loss, but kept most of their 4,000 yuan ($578) investment intact.

A short time later, the company’s stock went into free fall when the Shanghai Stock Exchange plunged as a result of ri

While it is reasonable to assume that women most concern

d with their body shape are those who might be susceptible to obesity or other risks, studies indicate the vast majority of wo

men who engage in “fat talk” can be ranked “average” and “healthy” when it comes to their weight.

Zhang Ran, 28, a senior consultant in the Beijing office of multinational professio

nal services company Ernst & Young, said she was a “fat talker” when she was a college student.

“I felt comfortable when I discovered I was not the only one who was un

happy about my body shape. But then I began to understand that it has nothing to do

with a woman’s actual weight, but everything to do with how she sees herself,” she said.

She added that sharing her fear of being fat with others could trigger feelings of emotional security and being part of a great

er community. Even after she graduated and started a career, “fat talk”-and its related effects-did not stop.
