Ahead of the second上海千花网f the bill in the Legis

 the Legislative Council, the protests escalated.

On June 15, Hong Kong leader Lam suspended the bill. The next da上海千花网

y, Lam apologized and offered to “accept all criticism” and “serve the public”.

But the demonstrations did not stop.

上海千花网女神会所Paul Yeung, a Hong Kong-based researcher and commentator on public policy, said the protests against the extradi

tion bill have morphed into demonstrations against the local government’s manner of responding to pub

lic opinion. Thus the protests are continuing, though the bill has been declared “dead”, he said.

Some observers say many y上海千花网oung people who took to the streets were merely affected b

y peer influence, instigated by a small number of radicals, and lost their critical thinking and simply followed.

Yeung said another factor leading to the situation in Hong Kong is that the government上海千花网女神会所

has failed to respond in a timely manner to young people’s aspirations and sentiments throughout the process.

上海千花网He said channels that the Hong Kong government is to establ

ish to communicate with local people can help break the city’s current deadlock.

But he said it will be a difficult task, given the tense social atmosphere. “It is imperative to restore peace and r上海千花网

ationality to society, with both sides showing a willingness to compromise before dialogue,” he added.

Hong Kong was a British colony for more than 150 years, and p上海千花网女神会所

art of it, Hong Kong Island, was ceded to the United Kingdom after a war in 18

上海千花网Hong Kong returned to China in 1997, under the principle of “one country

Earlier last month, another incident involving foreign teachers caused outrage, when 16 foreign nationals-se

dents from nearby schools-were among 19 people detained in Xuzhou, Jiangsu pro

vince, during an anti-narcotics crackdown, according to the local public security bureau.上海楼凤

EF Education First, an international company that specializes in language train

上海楼凤ing, issued a statement saying that it forbids employees to possess or use narcotics or controlled substances, and th

e contracts of the teachers would be terminated if they were found to have been involved in illegal drug use.

The incidents triggered a flood of posts on social media platforms, with some dema上海楼凤女神会所

nding that the establishments be closed, while others called for the teachers to be deported.

But even if that happens, more foreign teachers will follow in their wake because the soaring de上海楼凤

mand for English-language teachers means that finding a job is little more than a formality for many foreigners.

Last year, 300 million people in China were learning English, according to the Chinese Acad

上海楼凤女神会所emy of Social Sciences, which noted that there were 50,000 English-language teaching estab

However, according to the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs, of the 400,000 foreign nationals wo上海楼凤

According to a regulation issued by SAFEA, all foreign teachers mu上海楼凤女神会所

Although it might be the US suppliers of Huawei that care more about the outcome than the Chinese telecommu上海千花坊

Huawei is confident that no power can hold back the pace with which the world wil上海千花坊女神会所

An amicable relationship 上海千花坊hina and Japan ser

ves the interests of the two and the region, experts sai

d, as Beijing and Tokyo resumed strategic talks after a seven-year hiatus. 上海千花坊

On Saturday, a strategic dialogue between

Le Yucheng, China’s vice-minister of foreign affairs, and his Japanese

 上海千花坊女神会所counterpart, Takeo Akiba, was held at the Karuizawa mountain resort in Japan’s Nagano prefecture.

They had what was described as candid exchanges about bilateral and regional issues and said they would push

forward the consensus reached between President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinz 上海千花坊

o Abe at the Group of 20 Summit in Osaka in June, a Foreign Ministry statement issued after the dialogue said.

“Both China and Japan advocated building a relationship that meets the requirements of the new era,” it said.

 上海千花坊女神会所The resumption of the China-Japan strategic dialogue is a key sign that Beijing a

nd Tokyo have pushed forward their bilateral relations on the right track and forged closer ties, said Lu Hao, a rese

archer at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ Institute of Japanese Studies.

Official exchanges and communication mechanisms, includ 上海千花坊

ing the strategic dialogue, were suspended after the two countries becam

e mired in a dispute over China’s uninhabited Diaoyu Islands in the East China Sea.

 上海千花坊女神会所Lu said the strategic dialogue mechanism plays a vital role for the two neighbors, especially as they are both fa

cing unprecedented conditions and a rapidly changing global environment.

“The dialogue not only focuses on improving bilateral ties but also touches on

some of the important regional and international issues of common interest,” Lu said, 上海千花坊女神会所

adding that boosting mutual understanding and cooperation between China and Japan, the w
