  • China, Vietnam to Address Maritime Disputes Without Using 'megaphone Diplomacy': Xinhua

    Senior Chinese and Vietnamese officials have agreed to settle their maritime disputes without resorting to "megaphone diplomacy", the official Xinhua news service said on Saturday. The agency's report follows a meeting in Hanoi on Friday between Chinese political advisor Yu Zhengsheng and Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung, and it comes as Beijing backs off from aggressive attempts to press its territorial claims in the South China Sea. Although major trading partners and sharing the same nominal commitment to communism, China and Vietnam have a long history of distrust and conflict, including a short war in 1978 when Chinese troops invaded Vietnam in response to Hanoi's invasion of Cambodia, run at the time by the China-backed genocidal Khmer Rouge regime. http://feeds.reuters.com...

Xi pressed the keyboard and sent the greetings on the three platforms, generating warm response. As of 11:20, the greetings have been forwarded nearly 10,000 times and liked by more than 17,000 people on the Weibo account of People's Daily, about two hours after it was published at 9:36. Many netizens thanked Xi and extended an early Lantern Festival greeting to him. One netizen named "What she does not know" said, "Hi, uncle Xi, I wish you a happy Lantern Festival in advance." Xi also visited the headquarters of the Xinhua News Agency and China Central Television (CCTV) later in the day. At the state news agency Xinhua, Xi used a remote news reporting command system to talk with an agency correspondent currently reporting from a village in Lankao County, Henan Province. During the conversation, he said that the work style of grassroots cadres is integral to the Party's rule and is directly linked to the people's interests. He noted that journalists should undertake more in-depth investigative reporting on this work style. While at Xinhua, Xi was also briefed on the news agency's reporting procedures. After listening to journalists' experience of reporting during the Spring Festival holiday, he encouraged them to be more down to earth in their approach and to report on topics that would be well received by the public. After leaving the Xinhua News Agency, Xi headed for China Central Television (CCTV). At the CCTV headquarters, Xi held a video conference with Washington D.C.- based CCTV America, asking staff there about their daily life. Xi was also briefed on the CCTV business and its media integration, learned about CCTV's transmission capacity, and the production process of the widely-watched Xinwen Lianbo program. On the Friday afternoon, Xi presided over a working meeting on mass media, urging media organizations to increase their influence and credibility. National media are an important part of the work of the Communist Party of China and concerns about the governance of the state and the stability of the country, Xi said. News media should adhere to the right orientation of public opinion, keep pace with the times, respect the regulations of mass media, and encourage innovation, Xi said.

CHINA has scrambled another 25,000 troops to be militarised along the North Korean border as the country is put on ‘nationwide alert’ amid heightened tensions between the hermit state and the West, according to reports. This brings the total amount of troops now deployed, up to 175,000. All five regions military regions from China have been ordered by Beijing to maintain readiness for the possibility of conflict along their border with Kim Jong-un’s kingdom, according to UPI. China’s armoured and mechanised infantry brigades in the Shandong, Zhejiang and Yunnan provinces have been given the go-ahead. The troops being deployed from China to the Korean peninsula are from the 47th group army of the Ninth Armoured Brigade, the Information Centre for Human Rights and Democracy. China has already sent 150,000 troops to the North Korean border on Sunday, Taiwan’s China Post has claimed. It comes after the US and South Korea conducted joint military exercises around the peninsula. USS Carl Vinson’s strike group has been deployed to the Korean peninsula in a show of force towards Pyongyang after the hermit nation has carried out a series of provocative missile launches and nuclear tests. Chinese president Xi Jinping begged Donald Trump to pursue a peaceful resolution to the meltdown in the crisis during a phone call between the pair. Despite the pleas, North Korea looks to set to detonate a nuclear device this week, according to the Voice of America. The device is expected to set off the device on Saturday. A National Security Council official said: “We have no comment at this time but we will be watching closely.” Donald Trump's decision to launch missiles into Syria last week in retaliation for President Assad's attack caused widespread alarm in China, it is believed. Japan's daily newspaper Sankei said it was taken in China as "warning" of a possible attack on North Korea. Trump and his team met with China's President Xi last week and North Korea's nuclear programme was top of the agenda alongside trade. But it remains a highly sensitive topic in China, and according to Sankei, China's state news service Xinhua made no mention of North Korea whatsoever in its report on the talks. But over the weekend, reports spread via Chinese social media that medical supplies and support troops were being sent to the border of North Korea. One picture shared widely online claimed to show a line of military trains moving around Shenyang, a city just over 200 miles from the North Korean border. Submarine fleets have also been sent to the area, it was reported. It was estimated that around 150,000 Chinese troops have been mobilised in anticipation of North Korean refugees fleeing the country in the event of an American airstrike. It comes after one of President Trump 's military advisers confirmed they have been asked to come up with a list of options to smash North Korea’s nuclear threat. Lieutenant General H. R. McMaster said his Commander-in-Chief has made the order as a U.S. carrier strike group heads for the region. It is believed that among the options are combined special forces raids and pre-emptive missile strikes. One of the problems facing an American-led operation to hit Pyongyang’s leader Kim Jong-Un is the intricate tunnel network under the capital. War-planners have had difficulty mapping out the subterranean complex and believe there are hundreds of underground artillery and airplane sites. McMaster described the decision to redeploy the USS Carl Vinson to the Sea of Japan as ‘prudent’ given North Korea’s ‘pattern of provocative behavior.’ Speaking to Fox News, McMaster said: “It’s prudent to do it, isn’t it? “Presidents before and President Trump agreed that that is unacceptable, that what must happen is the denuclearization of the peninsula. “The president has asked [us] to be prepared to give us a full range of options to remove that threat.” The news comes after Trump launched cruise missiles against Assad in Syria last week, the first time the US has directly targeted the regime during the conflict. North Korea denounced Trump’s attack as an act of ‘intolerable aggression’ and one that justified ‘a million times over’ its push toward a nuclear deterrent.

Two massive explosions caused by flammable goods ripped through an industrial area in the northeast Chinese port city of Tianjin late on Wednesday, killing 17 people and injuring around 400, official Chinese media reported. President Xi Jinping demanded that authorities quickly extinguish the fire caused by the blasts and "make full effort to rescue and treat the injured and ensure the safety of people and their property", China Central Television (CCTV) said on its official microblog. CCTV said the blasts erupted in a shipment of explosives at around 11:30 p.m. local time (11.30 a.m. EDT), triggering a blast wave that was felt kilometers (miles) away. The second blast came roughly 30 seconds after the first, state media said. ADVERTISING The official People's Daily newspaper said the death toll was 17 while other state media said three firefighters were among the dead. The official Xinhua news agency said around 400 were hurt. Video posted on YouTube from what appeared to be an apartment building some distance from the scene showed fire shooting into the night sky from the initial blast when the second, much bigger, explosion rocked the area, sending a huge fireball into the air. Seconds later, shockwaves hit the apartment building, causing panic among the occupants inside. Pictures posted on Chinese media websites showed a cloud of dust towering above buildings near the scene. Residents and workers, some bleeding, could be seen fleeing. Canadian teacher Monica Andrews told the BBC that she awoke in panic after what she thought was an earthquake. "I ... looked out the window and the sky was red ... I just watched a second explosion go off and (it was) just pure chaos, everyone leaving their apartment buildings thinking it's an earthquake, cars trying to leave the complex and ... it was crazy the amount of light that this explosion and fire lit up," she said. Xinhua said the explosions had ripped through a warehouse storing "dangerous goods". The first explosion was equivalent to 3 tonnes of TNT and the second blast 21 tonnes of TNT, it said. Residents in nearby areas said the blasts had shattered windows in buildings, it reported. Citing a local hospital, Xinhua said people had been hurt by broken glass and stones and some were seriously wounded. CCTV said on its website about 100 fire trucks had been sent to the scene. Tianjin is home to around 15 million people, making it one of the biggest cities in China. It is also home to one of the country's biggest ports. Industrial accidents are not uncommon in China following three decades of breakneck economic growth. A blast at an auto parts factory in eastern China killed 75 people a year ago when a room filled with metal dust exploded.

A flotilla of warships, including destroyer equipped with guided missiles had been conducting drills in the disputed water. The drill, as claimed by the Xinhua News Agency, is as close as possible to real combat involving sudden attack and performed in poor sea conditions. The drill occurred days after China warned the United States against challenging its sovereignty following a report from Navy Time earlier of more provocative Freedom of Navigation, involving ships from carrier strike group USS Carl Vinson. During his first foreign trip to Asia, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Freedom of Navigation is an absolute and that all nations should play by the international rules. But he falls short on increasing military present in the South China Sea. The Freedom of Navigation operations consist of simply sailing ships within 12 miles of land features in the South China Sea that China claims. The operations, as their name implies, completely observe all international law and exist mainly to assert the right of the US, or any nation, to sail in international waters.

Less severe pollution is also expected in Tianjin, Hebei province and parts of Shanxi and Sichuan provinces. A government official in the south-western city of Dazhou in Sichuan Province said earlier in January that the lingering smog was caused by smoking bacon, State-run Xinhua news agency said. Rao Bing, deputy head of Dazhou's Environment Protection Bureau, was referring to the traditional method of preserving pork and sausages common in Sichuan. On Sina Weibo, China's micro-blogging site, many mocked the argument saying "smoking bacon has a long history, but smog does not", Xinhua reported. During previous bouts of heavy smog Chinese government officials have given other controversial explanations for smog including blaming farmers burning straw, another traditional practice.

The Hong Kong Journalists Association also questioned the rationale behind Lau's removal. Kevin Lau, as chief editor for just two years, will be replaced by a Malaysian in Singapore, former chief editor of newspaper Nanyang Siang Pau, Chong Tien Siong. In fact, Chong Tien Siong had led the Malaysian Chinese media delegation, to visit the Communist mouth piece Xinhua News Agency in 2007. Professor of Political Science, City University of Hong Kong, Joseph Yu-shek Cheng indicates, the decline in Hong Kong media ecology, has been quite serious with ever increasing self- censor and failing credibility. Joseph Yu-shek Cheng, Professor of Political Science, City University of Hong Kong: "There is a very unhealthy situation in the Hong Kong media at present. "They are owned by major financial groups which typically own businesses in China. They are generally reluctant to offend the Communist regime." In the Chinese University of Hong Kong's Centre for Communication and Public Opinion Survey, Ming Pao has dropped its rating and masthead slogan as being, "the most credible Chinese newspaper." Ming Pao's chairman, Hiew-king Tiong, is a Malaysian businessman. Since he became the executive chairman of Ming Pao in 1995, his business in China has also expanded with investment revenue worth billions of dollars . The Epoch Times had reported earlier, that Hiew-king Tiong, had close ties to former Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader Jiang Zemin's faction, but has recently crossed over to support the new leader Xi Jinping. Freelance writer Shu Gen told The Epoch Times, "Ming Pao's political stance is really erratic, according to its criticism of Hong Kong's Chief Executive Henry Tang, to the blow of Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, and its pro-Jiang to pro-Xi Jinping. Chip Tsao, senior journalist: "After they thrust Leung Chun-ying into power, they crushed him by focusing on the illegal construction at Leung Chun-ying's property. "To the CCP or Leung Chun-ying, the newspaper plays fast and loose." Hong Kong's Journalist Association Chairman, Sham Yee-lan told the Epoch Times, "Former chief executive of Ming Pao's North American operation, Lui Ka-ming, had long supported the Chinese consulate. "Lui was relocated back to Hong Kong last year to monitor the content of Hong Kong Ming Pao." Apple Daily also quoted sources saying, Hiew-king Tiong has sent Lui Ka-ming to Hong Kong. Hiew-King wants Lui to interfere with editorial decisions of Hong Kong's Ming Pao, in preparation for the political reform, as well as the Occupy Central protest, and the 25 year anniversary of Tiananmen Massacre. Joseph Cheng: "The CCP has huge United Front resources in Hong Kong and has infiltrated every major institution. Many activist organizations were said to have been infiltrated. "We have heard similar rumors about the infiltration of the CCP in Ming Pao." The seemingly neutral Ming Pao, has reported issues fully in reference to CCP's report. For example, the shooting incident during the 2008 crackdown in Tibet, or in the event of CCP's persecution of Falun Gong, Ming Pao has followed the tone of Xinhua or People's Daily. Recently, Ming Pao also blocked news about the European Parliament's call to end live organ harvesting by CCP. A source revealed that Ming Pao had participated three times to the training courses at Central Party School, which were organized by the Central Propaganda Department. The editorial director and ex-chief editor Cheung Kin-bor was one of the trainees. Hong Kong's senior journalist, Chip Tsao, explains Ming Pao has had a big impact on the ideology of primary and secondary students in Hong Kong. Ming Pao's report has real significance in Hong Kong. 《神韵》2014世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

Media giants from Argentina and China join hands to promote cultural exchange Argentine multimedia company Grupo Veintitres signed a cooperation agreement with China's Xinhua news agency aiming at opening a direct window to know the current political, economic and social reality of the Asian country. The goal of this strategic agreement, which was signed on Friday afternoon, is to spread the political, economic and social reality of one of the main global powers, local media commented. "It is a direct window to China," said Ye Shuhong, Xinhua chief correspondent in Argentina, during the signature event held in Algodon Mansion, a boutique hotel located in Recoleta, a downtown neighborhood in Buenos Aires. The agreement is in the line with the progress in relations between Argentina and China, seeking to build a bridge raise mutual understanding. The accord includes television, newspaper and website. The first step of the agreement includes a biweekly supplement in local daily Tiempo Argentino. Every two weeks, the readers are able to know more about China's habits and development. The 4-page supplement covers special stories from Xinhua. Also, the agreement comprises a space in the group's website Infonews.com. The space called "A Gate to China" includes news about China's politics, culture and breaking news. Television is also part of the agreement between Grupo Veintitres and Xinhua. A broadcast news segment will be included in CN23 channel from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., with the latest news of China. Also, several documentary films and reports about Chinese society will be shown during weekends. Sergio Szpolski, Executive Vice President of Grupo Ventitres, said "the agreement allows to rebuild the information map," adding that having a space in the group's website for the Chinese reality is a way to strengthen Grupo Veintitres. "I am convinced that Argentina has to know more about what happens in China because this is good for us. Argentina should not remain closed, neglecting other countries' cultures only makes us weak," he said. Meanwhile, China' Ambassador to Argentina, Yang Wanming, also stressed the importance of the agreement that will allow "to have complete and direct information about China's current situation," adding that "there are many issues worthwhile to inform." The Chinese ambassador also mentioned bilateral relations. He explained that Argentina has a relevant role in regional and international issues. "It is fundamental to promote friendship and mutual understanding for a good relation between both countries," he said. Enditem

Wide shot of photos of hostages on front page 14. Close up on photos STORYLINE: Seven Chinese men kidnapped by gunmen in Iraq have been released in good spirits and some of them want to forge ahead with plans to open a construction business there despite their ordeal, the government said on Tuesday. The announcement that the men were released and turned over to Chinese diplomats came hours before the arrival in Beijing of US Vice President Dick Cheney, removing a potentially thorny issue during a visit expected to focus on Iraq. The men were captured on Sunday in the city of Fallujah, west of Baghdad, after entering Iraq from Jordan and were released late Monday to an Iraqi religious group, the Foreign Ministry said. They were then passed on to diplomats. The men went to Iraq on their own to start a construction materials business - a venture some of them were still "determined to open" despite their harrowing experience, the official Xinhua News Agency said. After their release, the men were staying with the Chinese owner of a Baghdad restaurant. China''s government had appealed to Iraqi authorities to find and rescue the men and warned other Chinese to avoid Iraq. Though news of the rescue came too late to reach the morning newspapers, some Beijing residents heard the good news over the air waves. To some, the hostages'' quick release was a sign of goodwill from the Iraqis toward China. Iraqi gunmen have also abducted other foreign nationals, including three Japanese civilians seized by a group threatening to burn them alive if Japan does not withdraw its non-combat troops from Iraq. Sunday''s deadline came and went with no word on their fate. China hasn''t contributed any troops to the US-led military force. Before the US-led attack that ousted Saddam Hussein, China had called for a "political solution" instead of war. Beijing, a permanent member of the UN Security Council, has advocated sending a UN team back to Iraq to help restore stability. The abducted men reportedly came from China''s southeastern coastal province of Fujian, which has a centuries-long history of people going abroad to work. In addition to Xue, Xinhua identified them as Lin Jingbing, Lin Kongming, Li Guiwu, Li Guiping, Wei Weilong and Chen Xiaojin.
