tial sale of arms worth $2.2 billion to Taiwan, the US State Department

has not only further strained cross-Straits relations, it is also trying Beijing’s p上海419

atience. And by passing a series of acts and resolutions related to Taiwan this year, the US Congress has dealt a serious bl

上海419品茶微信ow to Sino-US relations, as well as undermined peace and stability across the Straits.

The US House of Representatives enacted the Taiwan Assurance Act of 2019 and passed a resolution reaffirming the US’ commitment to Taiwan on May 7, which es上海419

sentially means the US would sell arms to the island regularly and back its participation in international organizations.

上海419品茶微信That the US has continued to meddle in Taiwan affairs shows it is desperate to use the “Taiwan card” to contain the Chinese mainland.

The US believes that by consolidating its relationship with Taiwan authorities through a

cts and resolutions, it can further integrate the island into its “Indo-Pacific” strategy to contain the mainland, t上海419

he biggest rival in Washington’s eyes thanks, in part, to the trade disputes between them.

上海419Yet the ruling Democratic Progressive Party in Taiwan, which favors an independent entity f

or the island, is willing to act as the cat’s paw for the US in exchange for security protection and p上海419品茶微信

olitical cover. Which is nothing but wishful thinking on the part of Taiwan authorities, because there is little chance o

f Washington getting involved in a war across the Straits if the DPP indeed tries to split the country.上海419

Following the DPP’s ideology of making Taiwan an independent entity, t

he island leader Tsai Ing-wen and other DPP officials have intensified their pro-in上海419品茶微信

dependence activities, especially in the fields of education, culture and administration, since she took office in 2

016. In fact, Lai Ching-te, Tsai’s rival in the island’s next leadership election in January 2020, openly pitched himself as a上海419品茶微信

worker for “Taiwan independence” before stepping down as the head of the executive body.

To send a clear message against secessionism to the Tsai administr

ation and give a strong warning to separatist forces on the island, the mainland has he

ld military exercises in the Taiwan Straits and sent warplanes and warships around the island.

The Indian governmen上海419品茶微信t has decided to impose retaliatory d

uties worth over 200 million US dollars on 29 products from the United States to co

unter the penal duties imposed on Indian aluminum and steel, local media reported Saturday.

The decision, to be officially notified on Sunday, came a few days ahead

of the scheduled visit of the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to India to discuss def

ense and trade issues, the Hindu Business Line quoting an unnamed government official as saying.

In June last year, India announced retaliatory tariffs worth 230 million US dollars on 29 US goods. However, India h

as since been postponing implementation of the duties in a bid to address trade concerns.

The trade concerns including the proposed withdrawal of the Generalized System of Preferences by the United States o

n India taking effect on June 5, may have prompted New Delhi to finally put the duties in place, the report said.

At just 17-ye上海419女神会所ars-old, Dutch teenager Noa Pothoven had alr

eady written an award-winning memoir detailing her struggle with post-tra

In her autobiography, Pothoven wrote that she had nothing left to live for.
At 16, she app

interview last year with local newspaper the Gelderlander, her request was rejected.
Last

week, after years of battling mental illness, Pothoven announced on Instagram that she had begun refusing all food

“After years of fighting, the fighting has finished. I have now stopped eating and dri

my suffering is unbearable,” Pothoven wrote in a post, which has since been removed.
