Donald Trump claims China rebuilt itself with money drained out of US

Washington: China rebuilt itself with the “tremendous amount” of money pouring out of the United States, President Donald Trump claimed Wednesday, asserting that America has been “ripped off” by “everyone”, including Beijing. He said China has been taking out USD 500 billion a year from the US. “They (Chinese) rebuilt their country with tremendous amounts of money pouring out of the United States.

I’ve changed that around. If you look at what’s going on, our market is going up like a rocket ship. I don’t want their market to go down, but their market is down 32 per cent in three months.  Because we can’t let them do anymore what they’ve done,” he said.
Trump was addressing a joint news conference with the visiting Polish President Andrzej Duda at the White House. “Over the last number of years, China has taken out of this country USD 500 billion and more a year.

 
That would go a long way for Poland, wouldn’t it?  You could rebuild your whole country. And that’s what China did,” he said.  Trump said he keeps a close watch on trade deficits as it was “very  important”. “When a country has USD 375 billion in trade deficits, and then many billions of dollars in other liabilities of all different types, one has to do something about it,” said the US President. Trump said the US has become a “piggy bank” to the world “ripped off by everyone”.

“We have been ripped off by China. We’ve been ripped off by the European Union.We’ve been ripped off by everybody. I want to protect the American worker, the American farmer, the ranchers, the companies. We’re not being ripped off in a little while,” he said. Responding to a question on his announcement of trade tariffs against China, Trump said, “It got to a point where the numbers were too big. This should have been done for the last 20 years. If you look at the World Trade Organization, that’s when China really happened, economically. It was like a rocket ship, because they took advantage of the rules of the WTO,” he asserted.




Taiwan honey traps students to become spies: China


Taiwan honey traps students to become spies: China

Beijing: China has accused Taiwan’s intelligence agencies of using honey traps to recruit university exchange students as spies, in an effort to “infiltrate” and “sabotage” activities on the mainland. The claim was made as part of a massive state media campaign, the CNN reported. “(The Taiwanese spies) use money, love, seduction and internet hook-ups to develop spies into mainland China and build the espionage network… It is extremely vicious to use students for espionage,” a report on state media CCTV claimed.

In one alleged example, described in the state-run China Daily, an 18-year-old Chinese exchange student who studied in Taiwan was turned into an informer after entering a sexual relationship with a Taiwanese spy. “The authorities said that, over three years, the student provided (the spy) with about 100 pieces of information on science and technology related to national defence and was paid about 45,000 yuan,” state media claimed. The media campaign was featured across at least six different outlets, including both TV and print media.

It began on Saturday and continued through into Monday, and was part of “Thunderbolt 2018”, a government-led initiative launched by China’s state security department, intended to root out espionage activities, the CNN reported. The CCTV report was required viewing at workplaces and universities across China, according to notices posted on websites and on bulletin boards. “All departments are required to organise the teachers and students to watch the news broadcast on September 15 and the interviews on September 15 and 16… I hope that all teachers and students will be vigilant,” a notice posted to the Chinese University of Petroleum website on September 14 said.


 
An editorial published in the Global Times, China accused Taiwan of jeopardising cross-strait relations. “Studying in Taiwan should have been an opportunity to improve themselves. Trapping these young people and ruining their lives, the Taiwan intelligence authorities also committed a moral crime”.Taipei has furiously refuted the allegations. Beijing views the democratically self-governed island, which has never been controlled by the Communist Party, as part of its territory. Cross-strait tensions have been rising since Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen was elected in 2016.

7 wounded including 2 British tourists in Paris knife attack: source

Paris: Seven people including two British tourists were wounded Sunday in Paris after they were attacked by a man armed with a knife and an iron bar, according to police and other sources. A source close to the inquiry said the suspect has been arrested and is believed to be an Afghan national. “Nothing at this stage shows signs of a terrorist nature in these assaults,” the sources said, adding that the attacker had targeted “strangers in the street”.

Of the seven wounded, four are in a critical condition, police said. The incident took place just after 11:00pm (2100 GMT) on the banks of a canal in the northeast of the capital. A security guard at one of two cinemas on either side of the Canal de l’Ourcq said he saw a man who had already assaulted people being chased by two other men who tried to stop him. “He had an iron bar in his hand which he threw at the men chasing him, then he took out a knife,” he told AFP. A police investigation has been launched for attempted murder, according to a judicial source.




Sweden general election may swing Far Right way


Sweden general election may swing Far Right way

Stockholm : The Swedish general election were underway on Sunday across the country amid uncertainty about the extent of the predicted rise of the far right.

The polling stations opened at 8 a.m. and closed at 8 pm. Seven million voters exercised their frachise to elect a new Riksdag or Swedish parliament, reports Efe news.

The Swedes also voted in local elections and attention was focussed on the two big parties, including the far right Sweden Democrats (SD). The outgoing government, headed by the Social Democrat Kjell Stefan Löfven, is a coalition between the Social Democratic Party and the Greens, with external support of the ex-communists.


 
The three parties together had won nearly 44 per cent of the votes in the last elections.

Polls now point to a more complicated situation since almost all of them have put the SD in second place with close to 20 per cent, ahead of the conservatives and 5-6 points of the Social Democrats. The Swedish far right, which has benefited from the crisis led by the wave of refugees arriving in recent years, aims to strengthen its role as arbiter and break through the growing isolation to which it had been relegated.

Another issue that divides the SD further from other parties is its position in favour of exiting the European Union.

Sunday’s election is first since the government in 2015 allowed 163,000 migrants into the country of 10 million, reported Daily Mail. While far less than what Germany took in that year, it was the most per capita of any European nation.

It is highly unlikely that any single party will get a majority, or 175 seats.

26 wounded as Saudi intercepts Yemen rebel missile, say officials


26 wounded as Saudi intercepts Yemen rebel missile, say officials

Riyadh: Saudi Arabia shot down a ballistic missile fired by Yemen’s Huthi rebels, with shrapnel leaving 26 people wounded, a Riyadh-led coalition fighting the insurgents said. Two children were among the wounded from the missile that was intercepted over the southern Saudi city of Najran on Wednesday, said a coalition statement published by the Saudi state media.The Iran-backed Huthis have in recent months ramped up missile attacks against Saudi Arabia, which Riyadh usually says it intercepts.

The Huthis’ Al-Masirah TV said Wednesday’s strike was targeted at a Saudi National Guard camp in the border city. The attack brings the tally to more than 185 rebel missiles launched since 2015, according to the coalition, which that year joined the Yemeni government’s fight against Huthi rebels.

 In 2014, the Huthis overran the Yemeni capital and seized control of much of northern Yemen as well as a string of ports on the Red Sea. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and their allies intervened in the conflict the following March, aiming to push back the Huthis and restore the internationally recognised government to power.


 
 Riyadh accuses its regional rival Tehran of supplying the Huthis with ballistic missiles, a charge Iran denies. Wednesday’s attack comes on the eve of United Nations-sponsored peace talks in Geneva, the first public meetings between the government of Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi and Huthi rebels since 2016.

But both the government and the rebels have said they expect no breakthrough at the talks, which appear likely to be delayed. While representatives of the Yemeni government arrived in Geneva Wednesday, the rebels remained stranded in Sanaa, amid claims the Saudi-led coalition backing Hadi was preventing them from leaving for the talks.

 The war in the impoverished country has left nearly 10,000 people dead and unleashed what the UN describes as the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.




3rd Korean summit: Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in to meet in Pyongyang from September 18


3rd Korean summit: Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in to meet in Pyongyang from September 18

Seoul: North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in will hold their three-day third summit from September 18 in Pyongyang, Seoul said on Thursday, after their envoy met the North Korean leader. South Korea’s National Security Office Director Chung Eui-yong, who led the special delegation to Pyongyang on Wednesday, told this to the media here on Thursday.

Kim and Moon have agreed to hold the new summit to continue strengthening ties and work on the denuclearization of the peninsula, as stipulated in their joint declaration signed in the first inter-Korean summit in April. They also discussed the complex process of dialogue between Pyongyang and Washington, Efe news reported.

During the meeting, Kim “reaffirmed his firm commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and expressed his willingness to closely cooperate with not only South Korea but also the US to that end,” Chung said.


 
North Korea’s state news agency KCNA, just minutes before the press conference, also published a statement by Kim guaranteeing his pledge to “realise the denuclearization”.

Chung also said that Kim has asked him to deliver a message to US President Donald Trump. However, he did not specify its content. After Trump and Kim signed a joint declaration in Singapore in June to work towards the denuclearization, in exchange for Washington guaranteeing Pyongyang’s security, the White House has grown impatient over the absence of concrete measures from the regime.

Pyongyang, for its part, demands progress in the signing of a peace treaty to definitively end the inter-Korean conflict in exchange for concrete steps to dismantle its nuclear arsenal.




6.7 magnitude earthquake jolts Japan’s Hokkaido island


6.7 magnitude earthquake jolts Japan’s Hokkaido island

Tokyo: An earthquake measuring 6.7 on the Richter scale, followed by a number of aftershocks, rocked Japan’s Hokkaido prefecture on Thursday, leaving multiple houses buried by landslides. Rescue work is underway to search for the missing.

According to the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA), the major temblor was centred in the Hokkaido prefecture at 3.08 a.m. (Japan time) with the epicentre at a latitude of 42.7 degrees north and a longitude of 142.0 degrees east, and at depth of 40 km, Xinhua reported. The earthquake was logged above 6 in some areas of Hokkaido prefecture on the Japanese seismic intensity scale which peaks at 7. Dozens of aftershock followed, including one with a preliminary magnitude of 5.4 that hit the prefecture three hours later.

Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority said the Tomari nuclear power plant operated by Hokkaido Electric Power Co.’s, had lost an external power source, and a spent fuel pool of its reactors was currently being cooled by an emergency power supply system. The nuclear watchdog said no abnormality had been confirmed in radiation levels around the plant. The JMA said there might be a slight sea-level change in Japan’s coastal areas as a result of the magnitude 6.7 quake.


 
Police said they had received multiple reports of injuries as a result of the quake, including an 82-year-old man who was found with no vital signs after falling down the stairs but was later recovered. In Sapporo, capital city of Hokkaido, 53 people were reported injured. A number of houses in the quake-stricken areas collapsed, with rescue work under way for those possibly buried under the houses, according to local officials. In Atsuma, at least 16 people were missing after eight households were buried by landslides, according to public broadcaster NHK.
