According to the South Korean health authorities, the Chinese government resumed the issuance of visas from Aug. 5 for South Korean students and workers and those with valid residence permits who tested negative for COVID-19.
Kim noted that the restrictions will be lifted considering that the province recently reported no new COVID-19 cases and that the Chinese government started Wednesday to accept visa applications from South Koreans.
President Xi Jinping had called for building a community with a shared future for mankind. Wang said the aim of this major initiative is to rise above differences in system, abandon the zero-sum mentality, and find a common goal for all countries, nationalities and civilizations.
But facts speak louder than words. No countries in Africa or Latin America have complained about falling into such a "debt trap" because of their cooperation with China. Thats why Robert Zoellick, the former World Bank president, has said: "Those who see China only as a disruptor are misleading themselves. Frankly, self-deception is very dangerous in diplomacy."
"We do have disputes, like the border disputes with India, and some territorial disputes in the South China Sea," he said, adding that "but on the whole, all the countries in our region want to develop mutually beneficial relations. I dont think any one of them wants to see any escalation of tension. This is also the reality."
BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said the real challenge to the current international order and system is that the United States, the strongest country in the world, places its own interests above everything else, and takes this as its code of conduct.
All the excuses for closure claimed by the U.S. side are nothing but fabrications designed to slander China, and none of the excuses is backed by any evidence or can stand up to scrutiny, Wang said.
In late 2017, the UN General Assembly overwhelmingly passed a resolution declaring that any decisions that would change the status of Jerusalem are "null and void."
National security is a nations top priority and the prerequisite for a country to survive and thrive. The legislation for Hong Kong is aimed at eliminating the loopholes in national security and ensuring Hong Kongs long-term stability and prosperity, which is part of Chinas internal affairs in which no other country has the right to interfere.
BEIJING, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- The Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of Chinas State Council on Monday voiced firm support for the Chinese foreign ministrys decision to impose sanctions against U.S. senator Marco Rubio and 10 other U.S. individuals with egregious records on Hong Kong affairs.
