I must stress that Taiwan is an inseparable part of Chin

na, and the one-China principle is the foundation of China-US relations and an international consensus,” Shao said.

“The US side has conducted a series of negative rhetoric and actions regarding the Taiwan questi

on, violated the one-China principle and the three China-US joint communiques,” he said.

“This has undermined China’s sovereignty and security, sent a seriously wrong message to

Taiwan secessionists, and disrupted regional peace and stability,” Shao said, adding that China must, and will be, reunified.

“If anyone tries to separate Taiwan from the mainlan

d, the Chinese military will adamantly protect its territorial integrity at all costs,” he said.

As for the South China Sea, Shanahan accused China of undermini

First, China has undisputable sovereignty over islands and their surrounding waters in the South China Sea, backed by a wealth of historical and legal basis,” Shao said.

For a long period of time, various nations’ normal passage and flight in the region have never been obstructed. “There i

s no issue over the freedom of navigation and overflight in the South China Sea,” he said.

However, the US has frequently sent vessels and aircraft to trespass into Chinese mar

itime territory and airspace, and has conducted intense intelligence gathering and special drills in the region.

“These actions damage the peace and security of the region,” Shao said. “As a result, the PLA

has installed necessary defense equipment on the islands in accordance with security needs. This is within

the natural rights of a sovereign state, and a necessary measure to counter those provocative actions.”

As for global GDP, manufacturing employment and

trade, they could decline by 0.134 percent, 0.323 percent and 0.869 percent. Th

e US tariff hikes therefore will increase the economic pain of the US and world economies.

Agricultural products, chemicals and chemical products, textiles and g

arments are the main US items targeted by China’s higher tariffs. But despite the higher tar

iffs providing some protection for domestic industries, Chinese consumers might have to pay more to purchase them.

In the first four months of this year, the volume of Sino-US trade dropped by 15.7 percent to $161.23 billion. In terms of product

structure, US exports of raw materials and foods to China saw the biggest decline, among which the export of so

ybeans plummeted by half in March compared with the same period last year. And US exports of plant products, mi

nerals, jewelry and precious metals declined by more than 85 percent in the first quarter.

Walmart banks on tech innovationn escalator in a Walmart

US retail giant Walmart Inc will continue to grow its hypermarkets, Sam’s Club stores, and community-ba

sed smaller-sized supermarkets businesses in China with more advanced technologies, according to a top official.

Doug McMillon, president and CEO of Walmart, told China Daily during his visit to Shanghai on Thursday that China is still one of

the most important markets for the US retailer. Technology will be another major focus area for the com

McMillon said Walmart has developed digital solutions to better u

nderstand customer behavior and spending patterns, which in turn has helped the ret

ailer to create new products and to solve old retail problems with modern technology.

The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this week that

 after the pilots turned off the MCAS, they were unable to regain control of the plane. They then re-engaged the anti-stall syste

m, the Journal said. It was not clear why the pilots did not continue following Boeing’s emergency checklist. Aviation exper

ts who asked not to be named told China Daily that using nonstandard procedures may have made things worse.

The preliminary finding by Ethiopian authorities likely will increase pressure on Boeing to deve

lop and install new software for the MCAS. It also is expected to result in a rigorous review of the softw

are fix by the US Federal Aviation Administration, which has been criticized by aviation analysts and mem

ers of Congress for depending too heavily on aircraft industry officials to certify their new planes as safe.

The FAA said late on Wednesday that it will launch a joint task force with NASA and internati

onal aviation regulators to review Boeing’s new software for the anti-stall system. The task force will be headed

by Chris Hart, former chairman of the US National Transportation Safety Board. The FAA has not released the nam

es of those to serve on the Joint Authorities Technical Review team, their affiliations or nationalities.
