Here, we come back to the new group of independent

support a modern, progressive, global Britain that is very much a part of modern Europe. Cur

rently, both main say that they will deliver Brexit — albeit different versions of it. A new group in Parliament, free to vote and speak as they li

ke, can now make the case for a softer Brexit, or even a second vote, and do so in ways that could damage both the gove

rnment and the opposition.
But will they? That’s a crucial question. If the movement swells, it could create the mome

ntum for a second referendum and push one party or another (probably the Labour Party) to formally back such a vo

te. It could terrify Conservative Brexiteers into backing May on her deal. It could completely break the par

liamentary arithmetic and cause the UK to stumble into a no deal. It could force a general election in which all 11 los

e their seats. It’s very hard to tell.
But the main takeaway from this week is that these 11 MPs were so frustrated by t

heir own parties — for more reasons that just Brexit — that they needed to do something. And that it was now or never. T

hey were left with no good options because, right now, politics in the UK is spiraling out of control.

She said that there were numerous witnesses to the alleged killing by a policeman on the sce

ne. She said that she’s not reported the crime, because she fears retribution from the very same person who killed her son.

But her family is getting anonymous death threats and demands that she stop talking a

bout her son’s killing.
Police chief Michel-Ange Gedeon told CNN that there had been no report of the alleged crime.

“Whenever we receive a case we will investigate,” he told CNN.
That may come as a surprise to Haiti’s Prime Min

ister, Jean-Henry Ceant, who this week singled out Roberto’s tragic end for special mention in a televised address to the nation.

“As a father who can understand the pain of a parent, I send a special message to the mother of a y

oung boy, Roberto Badjo Thelusma who died in front of the State Hospital while he was helping his mother with her business.

“I remember how 40 years ago I used to help my mother with her meat business at the ‘Kwabosal’ m

arket place. Today I’m the Prime Minister, who knows what Roberto Badjo Thelusma could have become in this country.”

MPs Anne Coffey, Angela Smith, Chris Leslie, Mike Gapes

Luciana Berger, Gavin Shuker and Chuka Umunna announce their resignation from the La

bour Party at a press conference on February 18, 2019 in London, England.

Speaking to the BBC on Tuesday after Ryan’s resignation from the

party, Labour MP Chris Williamson said that he had never known Labour to be “more united

” than it was now, adding it was “regrettable that a minority of MPs” were out of step with the popular mood in the country.

Though many within the party have publicly moved to criticize Ryan’s decision

, her departure will likely fuel concerns that further resignations could follow in the weeks ahead.
In a state

ment after the initial resignations Monday, Corbyn sai

d he was “disappointed that these MPs have felt unable to continue to work together for th

e Labour policies that inspired millions at the last election and saw us increase our vote by the largest share since 1945.”

Both sides have showed their strength and volition in

 unprecedented trade war: The US didn’t easily stop and China was not that fragile to be defeated. How

ever, it has proven no empty talk that in a long-term trade war, both sides would eventually lose.

President Xi and President Trump reached consensus on December 1 and put the two countries back onto the win-win track. Th

e consensus has responded to the situation, conformed with people’s wishes and reversed the pessimism of the market.

Starting December 2018, rounds of consultations resolved a large n

umber of divergences. The outcome has been sufficient to outline a new face of China-US econo

ic and trade cooperation and to bring an incalculable impetus to both sides’ economic development.

In the final phase of the talks, both sides must keep calm, treasure the already-made ach

ievements and promote smoother and fairer China-US trade cooperation.

US demand for China’s structural reform must stay in line with China-US trade coo

peration and coordinate with China’s reform and opening-up. The talks must not tr

y to force Beijing to change its economic governance or even its development path.

The final deal should attend to the interests of nongovernmental organizations that ultimately carry out economic and trade cooperation.

China and the US must sign an agreement that will inspire their peo

ple,  heralding accelerated economic development. Only such deals can withstand the test of history.

Will second Trump-Kim summit affect Japant between

The second summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong

-un in Hanoi on February 27 and 28 will trigger complicated changes in East Asia’s poli

tics. Though the effect on US-Japan relations will be limited, North Korea-Japan ties will move in a positive direction.

Currently, Pyongyang demands withdrawal of sanctions, signing a peace treaty, an end-of-war declaration, and a security guarantee f

or North Korea. Washington had asked Pyongyang to undertake complete, verifiable and irrev

ersible denuclearization, which might be now relaxed. The US may agree that North Korea fulfill it in stages. Befo

re any progress in denuclearization, the US will not ease sanctions substantially. Therefore, the Hanoi talks co

uld produce substantive results, much more significant than the Singapore summit.

However, it won’t shake the relationship between US and its East Asian al

lies. Even if the US and North Korea forge new relations, it would obviously not be a

s firm as the US-Japan alliance. Once the talks make headway, Washington may gradually lift the sanctions on Pyo

ngyang, helping get North Korea’s economy out of the doldrums. Other areas will be left as they are.

In this context, possible improvement in US-North Korea ties would not have noticeabl

e impact on US-Japan relations. However, it may make Tokyo and Pyongyang move closer.

The Modi administration has undertaken significant steps

India’s tax system, upgrade its bankruptcy laws and relax restrictions on foreign investment. The country witnessed a 23-place jump to a record 77th p

osition in the World Bank’s latest report on the ease of doing business, which covered 190 countries and regions. Fa

cts have proved that India’s economic reforms are conducive to improving the business climate for foreign investment.

Modi has launched a range of reform initiatives, and now the Modi administration must t

ell local authorities to fully implement these policies to ensure that the country’s economic re

form will go forward ahead of the general election. Effective implementation of current policies is mo

re important than launching new initiatives, and this effort will lay the groundwork for a better business climate.

India’s labor cost advantage has led some Chinese manufacturers to look closely at setting up assembly lines

in the country. Achieving a better understanding of India’s changing business climate will he

lp achieve win-win results and joint development of the two emerging economies.

China and India must enhance strategic communication and mutual trust to move their ec

onomic ties forward. Currently, the most urgent task is to prevent the suic

ide attack in the Pulwama district from affecting economic relations and India’s inbound investment.

Although the idea of Huawei engaging in espionage is te

ically possible, it does not make any sense from a commercial or political point of view.

Such a practice would be tantamount to suicide for a high-tech giant. If the Chinese governme

nt forced Huawei to do this, it would be stifling the country’s emerging industries. But intelligence can

not be mentioned in the same breath as Huawei’s contribution to China’s industrial prosperity and national interests.

Hyping the alleged Huawei threat has violated the basic spirit of seeking truth from facts. The West is prioritizing ide

ology and considering excluding China as political correctness. Many people in Europe are aware of the lies, but

still beating the drum for a certain value orientation rather than conducting an objective analysis.

The world is changing, and if Europe keeps prioritizing ideology and political correctness in dealing with every new situation, that would be dangerous.

What Europe needs is not only the ability to distinguish between right and wrong, but also the co

urage to make its own independent choices. Europe’s cooperation with Huawei on construction of a 4G

network is already an established fact, but it seems now that beneficial collaboration has become one of the biggest risks.

Let’s reap potential of China-Myanmar cooperation

Since Myanmar embarked on its political transition, political elites in the country have championed that peace is the premise for economic and social developme

nt. In the first two years of the government led by National League for Democracy (NLD), Nay Pyi Taw devoted a lot of efforts to promoting national recon

ciliation with the hope of making a major breakthrough and consolidating public support. Regrettably, results are no

t satisfactory. The NLD government is currently locked in a stalemate over national reconciliation.

It has also performed poorly in boosting the economy and improving people’s lives. Main economic indicators suggest that since the N

LD government assumed power, Living standards haven’t substantially improved, and more economic problems have surfaced to plague the c

ountry. One of the main reasons why the NLD lost seats in the 2018 elections is the government’s lackluster economic performance. If the e

conomy doesn’t improve, it will inevitably affect the NLD’s potential for victory in the 2020 election.

Therefore, the NLD government is now attaching increasing importance to economic and live

lihood issues. It has issued a string of policies to attract foreign investment. Take the new Myanmar

Companies Act. Under the law, foreigners are permitted to take up to a 35 percent stake in local companies and bus

inesses with foreign stakes of more than 35 percent will be classified as a foreign company, which facilitates co

operation between foreign investors and local businessmen and will help attract more foreign investment.

As the West steps up its criticism of Myanmar over the Roh

and Rakhine issues, the country’s relations with the West have deteriorated. China is one of the few powers Myanmar can rely on. There is vast cooperation po

tential between the two countries. China and Myanmar can advance industrial cooperation under the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative,

the China-ASEAN Free Trade Area, the China-Myanmar Economic Corridor and the Bangladesh-China-India-Myanmar Economic Corridor. How to

unleash Myanmar’s huge development potential with the help of China should be placed on the NLD government’s planning agenda.

As Myanmar’s largest neighbor, China will continue to play an active role in promoting Myanmar’s national reconciliation and addressing the Rakh

ine issue as well as build mechanism for talks. It will assist Myanmar as much as it can. When inv

esting in Myanmar, Chinese enterprises should pay attention to their social responsibility. They should also ad

dress local people’s suspicions and misunderstandings on Chinese-invested projects. We have reasons to believe that th

e prospect for China-Myanmar cooperation under the Belt and Road framework is promising.

With the proscription of Azhar becoming a contentious

t impedes China-India relations, some Chinese scholars advise that China take India’s concern more into account. But Liu Zongyi, a senior fellow of the Shanghai I

nstitutes for International Studies, told the Global Times that India should, first of all, mind its approach. Should New Delhi resort to quiet dipl

omacy instead of extensively directing aggressive rhetoric to pressure Beijing, the Azhar issue could have been better addressed.

Terrorism in India poses a significant threat to Indians. Without solid evidence, India has long accu

sed Pakistan of sponsoring terrorist attacks by Jaish-e-Mohammed and other militant groups and China

of providing uncritical support for Pakistan. Instead of simply blaming other countries, especially Pakistan and China, shouldn’t the Indian government ma

ke more self-introspection on its anti-terrorism policy and dwell more on how to better administer the India-controlled part of Kashmir?

China and Pakistan are not enemies of India in countering terrorism. Despite the India-Pakistan dispute, New Delhi has comm

on interests in fighting terrorism with Islamabad and Beijing. It’s suggested India abandon suspicions and the three countries enhance consult

ations on regional security and strengthen anti-terrorism cooperation. Last August for the first time the militaries of India and Pakistan took part in

a mega anti-terror drill of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Russia aimed at expanding cooperation among member countries to de

al with the growing menace of terrorism and extremism. Such momentum shouldn’t be disrupted.

With the approaching general election in India, nationalism could be easi

ly fanned and used by politicians to woo support. Blaming China and Pakistan for the terr

orist attack will arouse Indians’ anxieties over neighboring countries. A tough stance by the BJP government may help the

ruling party win more support. But this will risk anti-terrorism cooperation being sabotaged for the political interests of parties in India.
