Won't sit idle if United States harms economic interests: China

Won't sit idle if United States harms economic interests: China

When asked about China's term-limits move last week, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders called it a "decision for China to make about what's best for their country".

"Resolutely safeguard General Secretary Xi Jinping's core status and the authority of the party's central committee and its centralised and unified leadership", Li said in a speech to almost 3,000 delegates to the ceremonial legislature in the Great Hall of the People.

China's ruling Communist Party last month proposed removing a two-term limit on presidential terms, a suggestion nearly sure to be adopted by the country's rubber-stamp parliament during its annual session starting March 5. In this way, there is continuity.

It's important to remember that when he's in front of a crowd, Trump often just says whatever he thinks will get a reaction.

The upcoming National People's Congress meeting, slated to last for 16 days, will be the longest since 1993, according to Chinese news media.

"In adopting the same practice for the position of state president in the Constitution, it would uphold the authority of the party's Central Committee with comrade Xi Jinping at its core and centralise and unify the leadership", said the proposal.

Ichiro, Mariners close to deal
The Marlins declined to pick up a $2 million contract option and bought him out for $500,000, making him a free agent. Ichiro signed with the Mariners in 2001 after a phenomenal career in Japan for the Orix Blue Wave of NPB.

"China and the U.S., the two major countries, bear special duties in this regard", he said. The limit of two five-year presidential terms was written into China's constitution after Mao Zedong's death in 1976 by Deng Xiaoping, who recognised the dangers of one-man rule and the cult of personality and instead espoused collective leadership.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has equally acknowledged that Mr. Xi's China has, more than any other country, invested heavily in the country's infrastructure.

Chinese President Xi Jinping is seen a large screens at the opening session of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference in Beijing's Great Hall of the People, March 3, 2018. "It reflects the will of the people".

These remarks come after Trump on Thursday announced that his administration will impose 25% on steel imports and 10% on aluminium products and described trade wars as "good". "It's the difference between heaven and earth compared to the endless debates for their own political interests between certain ruling and opposition parties in the West", it wrote, without saying which foreign reporters had offered praise.

Early this week, Beijing rushed its top diplomat Yang Jiechi followed by Chinese President Xi Jinping's economic advisor Liu He to the United States to pacify the Trump administration to avert a "trade war" between the two countries. Though the highlight of parliament is supposed to be the state-of-the-nation work report presented by Premier Li Keqiang, there is little doubt that with the removal of the term limits, this year is Xi's show more than ever.
