China raps 'fabricated' US claims, says talks 'meaningless'

The Communist Party's People’s Daily said on Saturday the accusations were “an old-fashioned argument used by some people in the United States to suppress China’s development.” “The US argument about the ‘forced transfer of technology’ can be described as being fabricated from thin air,” the paper said, adding that Washington had not yet been able to provide any evidence to back up the claims. The People’s Daily said the United States benefited substantially from voluntary technological cooperation, earning $7.96 billion in intellectual property use fees in 2016 alone. The paper argued that Washington’s “fragile nerves” were caused by China’s rapidly growing research and development capabilities. Beijing announced this week it would retaliate against a move by Washington to raise tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports. Tensions worsened this week after the Trump administration added China's Huawei to a trade blacklist, that will make it extremely difficult for the telecom giant to do business with US companies. The order puts Huawei and 68 affiliates in more than two dozen countries on the blacklist. That bans the company from buying parts and components from American firms without US government approval. Last week, China and the US concluded their 11th round of high-level economic and trade consultations in Washington, without reaching any deal aimed at ending their trade tensions. After the talks broke down, the US announced an increase of Chinese tariffs from 10 percent to 25 percent on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports. China urges 'sincerity' The United States has said negotiations are likely to restart soon but China said Friday resuming bilateral trade talks would have no meaning unless Washington changed course and showed “sincerity." Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said in Beijing Friday China always encouraged resolving disputes with the United States through dialogue and consultations. “But because of certain things the US side has done during the previous China-US trade consultations, we believe if there is meaning for these talks, there must be a show of sincerity,” Lu said. Sources familiar with the issue said the trade talks had stalled and the next round of negotiations between the two countries was “in flux.” The People’s Daily published on Friday a front-page commentary that China is as “firm as a boulder” in protecting its national interests and dignity in the face of Washington’s trade war. “The trade war can’t bring China down. It will only harden us to grow stronger,” it said. The trade dispute escalated earlier this month, when the US increased tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods after the Trump administration accused Beijing of reneging on earlier commitments made during months of talks. Trump also ordered US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to begin imposing tariffs on all remaining imports from China, a move that would affect about an additional $300 billion worth of goods. Trump has urged China to either sign the deal now or it will be forced to sign a far worse agreement in future.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: Paypal: **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
