Countries strive to replicate historic Silk Road’s world-changi

China would like to make joint efforts with Italy to revive the ancient Silk Road and bring more benefits for the people, President Xi Jinping said on Friday.

Xi made the remark while speaking to the media with Italian President Sergio Mattarella

in Rome. Xi left Beijing on Thursday for state visits to Italy, Monaco and France. His trip will conclude on Tuesday.

The ancient Silk Road boosted interconnectivity between Asia and Europe, and it encouraged exchanges between civilizations, Xi said.

Xi told reporters that his discussion with Mattarella was fruitful and the two leaders reached a wide range of consensuses.

China and Italy should connect their developmental strategies and enhance cooperation in such areas as infra

structure, seaports, logistics and maritime transport while promoting practical cooperation under the Belt and Road, Xi said.

China would like to increase trade and investment with Italy, Xi said, adding that Ita

ly is welcome at the second China International Import Expo as an honored guest. China would like to import more prod

ucts of high quality from Italy, and more domestic companies are being encouraged to invest in Italy, he said.

If they don’t talk to us, we’re going to do something that’

  going to be very severe economically,” Trump said. “We’re going to tariff a lot of their products coming in.”

  Most leaders go out of their way to avoid antagonizing their counterparts and wading into their delicate domestic politics.

  Not Trump.

  The exchange also revealed another one of Trump’s political tools: his fervent effort to inject an

appeal to his base — in this case on a signature issue, trade — into almost every political situa

tion.Trump also launched a mini-campaign rally, seizing on the Senate vote undoing his emergency declaration, to s

pell out his hardline policies on immigration and the wall — always with an eye on his most loyal voters.

  In an interview published by Breitbart News this week, Trump revealed another aspect of his character — a sense

that he is being persecuted unfairly — that helps him identify with voters who feel neglected by political elites.

  Complaining about Democratic investigations, the

President made a jarring comment that hinted at the possibility of political violence.

A nun just read the riot act to Catholic bishops over clergy sex

  Sister Veronica Openibo, a Nigerian-born nun, is one of only three women to address an unprecedented Vatican summit on clergy sexual abuse.

  She did not waste the opportunity.In clear, direct and unsparing language, Openibo challenged the church’s cult

ure of silence on sexual issues and said priests are too often put on pedestals. Openibo also criticized the pr

actice of letting elderly clergy who had abused children retire quietly with their pension and good names in place.

  ”Let us not hide such events anymore because of the fear of making mistakes,” Openibo said after reading a searing summ

ary of abuse cases she has heard about during her work on sexual education in Nigeria.

  ”Too often we want to keep silent until the storm has passed! This storm will not pass by. O

ur credibility is at stake.”Sister Veronica Openibo stands next to Chicago Archbishop Cardinal Blas

e J. Cupich, left, and Father Tomaz Mavric as they wait for the Pope’s arrival at the beginning of the third day of a Vat

ican’s conference on clergy sex abuse.
At one point, Openibo appeared to look toward Pope Francis, who was sitting on the

dais to her right, when calling for a policy of “zero tolerance” toward clergy who abuse children.

hinese Vice Premier Liu He will visit the US on Thursday and

Friday to continue high-level trade negotiations. His new title as Chinese President Xi Jinpi

ng’s special envoy indicates the importance and authoritativeness of the talks. As pre

paration for the event, consultations at vice-ministerial-level between China and the US were recovered on Tuesday.

The world’s stock markets surged Monday due to the optimistic prospects on the deals that Beijin

g and Washington are expected to make. US President Donald Trump praised “big progress” in the

trade deal on Twitter. His words further stoked the stock markets of the US, which reached the highest in two m

onths and so increased pressure on the Trump administration to close the deal with China.

Analysts believe that if the two countries couldn’t come to an agreement, and as a result the US imposes more tariffs on Chinese prod

ucts while China responds with fiercer countermeasures, it would be a catastrophic strike to global stock markets.

In terms of avoiding such blows, the Trump administration is probably the most pres

sured. Thus in general, by the end of the trade negotiations, China and the US have become more psychologically equal.

Sun Qian had joined Guan Yu in escorting the two

Sun Qian had joined Guan Yu in escorting the two ladies, and they were on the road to Runan when

Xiahou Dun suddenly determined to pursue. So with a couple of hundred horse, Xiahou Dun set out.

When Xiahou Dun was seen approaching, Guan Yu bade Sun Qian go ahead with the carriage while he remained to deal with the pursuers.

  When they were near enough, Guan Yu said, “In coming after me thus you do not reinforce the magnanimity of your master!”

  Replied Xiahou Dun, “the Prime Minister has sent no definite instructions. You have caused

the death of several people, among them one of my commanders,

and so I have come to capture you! You have behaved most grossly. The Prime Minister will decide.”

  thereupon Xiahou Dun dashed forward with his spear ready to thrust.

  But at that moment a rider came up behind him at full gallop, crying, “You must not fight with Guan Yu!”

  Guan Yu stayed his steed at once and waited.

  the messenger came up, drew from his bosom an official letter, and said to Xiahou Dun, “The Prime Minister loves General Guan Yu for his

loyalty and honor, and fearing lest Guan Yu might be stopped at the various passes, he sent me with this letter to show when necessary at any point on the road.”

  “But this Guan Yu has slain several commanders of the passes. Does the Prime Minister know that?” said Xiahou Dun.

  the messenger said these things were unknown.

  “then,” said Xiahou Dun, “I will arrest him and take him to the Prime Minister, who may set him free or not as he wills.”

  “Do you think I fear anything you can do?” said Guan Yu getting wrathful.

  And he rode forward. Xiahou Dun, nothing loth, set his spear

and prepared for battle.

they met and had reached the tenth encounter when a second horseman came up at full speed, crying, “Generals, wait a little!”

  Xiahou Dun stayed his hand and asked the messenger, saying, “Am I to arrest him?”

  “No,” replied the messenger. “Fearing lest he should have

difficulties at the passes, the Prime Minister has sent me with a dispatch to say he is to be released.”

  “Did the Prime Minister know that he had slain several commanders on the way?”

 “He did not know!”

 “Since he was ignorant of that, I may not let this Guan Yu go,” and Xiahou Dun gave the signal to his men to close in round Guan Yu.

  But Guan Yu flourished his sword and made to attack them and a fight was again imminent, when a third rider appeared,
