China congratulates Biden, hopes for reset in relations


2021-01-22 浏览

China on Thursday congratulated US President Joe Biden on his inauguration and called for a reset in relations between Beijing and Washington after an especially rocky patch of diplomacy under Donald Trump.

“I think after this very difficult and extraordinary time, both the Chinese and American people deserve a better future,” Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying told reporters.

She said Biden had used the word “unity” several times in his inauguration speech, and that it was “precisely what is needed currently in US-China relations.”

She pointed out that China and the US need to relaunch cooperation in a number of areas. She particularly welcomed the new administration’s decision to remain in the World Health Organization and return to the Paris Agreement on climate change.

“Many people of insight in the international community are looking forward to the early return of Sino-US relations to the correct track in making due contributions to jointly address the major and urgent challenges facing the world today,” Hua said.

She also criticized ex-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and other former officials, a day after China imposed travel and business sanctions on 28 of them, including Trump’s national security adviser Robert O’Brien and UN Ambassador Kelly Craft.

“Over the past few years, the Trump administration, especially Pompeo, has buried too many mines in Sino-US relations that need to be eliminated, burned too many bridges that need to be rebuilt and wrecked too many roads that need to be repaired,” Hua said. “I think both China and the United States need to show courage, show wisdom, listen to each other, face up to each other and respect each other,” Hua said.

“I think this is the responsibility of the two major countries of China and the United States, and it is also the expectation of the international community ... if both countries put in the effort, the kind angels can triumph over evil forces.”

Also on Thursday, China’s Ambassador to the US Cui Tiankai offered his congratulations to Biden on Twitter.

“Congratulations to President Biden on his inauguration! China looks forward to working with the new administration to promote sound & steady development of China-US relations and jointly address global challenges in public health, climate change & growth,” Cui tweeted.

Another 15 days before miners can be rescued


2021-01-22 浏览

Workers trapped in a gold mine in China since January 10 may have to wait another 15 days before they can be rescued because of a blockage on their intended escape route, officials said.

A total of 22 workers were trapped underground after an explosion at the Hushan mine in Qixia, a major gold-producing region under the administration of Yantai in Shandong Province on the northeast coast.

One is confirmed to have died, while 11 are known to be alive. The status of the other 10 is unknown.

Rescuers were drilling new shafts on Thursday to reach 10 of the men in one section of the mine, more than 600 meters from the entrance, who have been sent food and medical supplies.

Another is believed to be trapped on his own, 100 meters further down in rising waters, but his condition is unknown as he has not been directly reached by the rescue teams above.

The shafts include one 711mm-diameter shaft that rescuers hope to use to bring the survivors to safety.

However, at least another 15 days may be needed to clear obstacles, Gong Haitao, deputy head of Yantai’s publicity department, said at the headquarters of the rescue operation.

A “severe blockage” 350 meters down was much worse than feared, officials said, adding that it was about 100 meters thick and weights some 70 tons.

Thick smog hung over the muddy road leading up to the mine site and a row of ambulances on standby, reducing visibility to a few hundred meters. Police have sealed off the road to the mine, cutting through muddy apple orchards and warehouses, to ensure rescue efforts are not hampered. Health workers in white protective gear took temperatures beside mounded earth and tents as part of COVID-19 precautions.

About 600 people are involved in the rescue, with as many as 25 ambulances waiting at the scene, as well as neurosurgeons, trauma specialists and psychologists.

The rescue headquarters at the site said the dead miner suffered severe head injuries during the explosion and later fell into a coma. Medical personnel managed to deliver medicines to other miners and instructed them to offer treatment, but his condition did not improve.

Biden sworn in, takes helm of a deeply divided nation


2021-01-21 浏览

Democrat Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States on Wednesday, assuming the helm of a country reeling from deep political divides, a battered economy and a raging coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 400,000 Americans.

With his hand on an heirloom Bible that has been in his family for more than a century, Biden took the presidential oath of office administered by US Chief Justice John Roberts just after noon, vowing to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Biden, 78, became the oldest US president in history at a scaled-back ceremony in Washington that was largely stripped of its usual pomp and circumstance, due both to the coronavirus and security concerns following the January 6 assault on the US Capitol by supporters of outgoing President Donald Trump.

The norm-defying Trump flouted one last convention on his way out of the White House when he refused to meet with Biden or attend his successor’s inauguration, breaking with a political tradition seen as affirming the peaceful transfer of power.

Trump, who never conceded the November 3 election, did not mention Biden by name in his final remarks as president early Wednesday, when he touted his administration’s record and promised to be back “in some form.” He boarded Air Force One for the last time and headed to his Mar-a-Lago retreat in Florida.

Top Republicans, including Vice President Mike Pence and the party’s congressional leaders, attended Biden’s inauguration, along with former US Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris, the daughter of immigrants from Jamaica and India, became the first Black person, first woman and first Asian American to serve as vice president after she was sworn in by US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the court’s first Latina member.

Biden takes office at a time of deep national unease, with the country facing what his advisers have described as four compounding crises: the pandemic, the economic downtown, climate change and racial inequality. He has promised immediate action, including a raft of executive orders on his first day in office.

The ceremony on Wednesday unfolded in front of a heavily fortified US Capitol, where a mob of Trump supporters stormed the building two weeks ago.

China sanctions Pompeo and other Trump administration officials


2021-01-21 浏览

China has sanctioned 28 US individuals, including outgoing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, for seriously violating the country’s sovereignty, according to a statement from the Chinese foreign ministry late Wednesday.

Among the others who were sanctioned are Peter Navarro, Robert O’Brien, David Stilwell, Matthew Pottinger, Alex Azar II, Keith Krach, and Kelly Craft of the Trump administration, as well as John Bolton and Stephen Bannon.

These individuals and their immediate family members are prohibited from entering the mainland, Hong Kong and Macau of China. They, and companies and institutions associated with them, are also restricted from doing business with China.

“Over the past few years, some anti-China politicians in the United States ... have planned, promoted and executed a series of crazy moves which have gravely interfered in China’s internal affairs, undermined China’s interests, offended the Chinese people, and seriously disrupted China-US relations,” the ministry said.

Earlier in the day, China dismissed Washington’s allegation that Beijing was committing “genocide” against Uygurs and other minorities as “outrageous lies.”

Pompeo, who had unleashed a barrage of measures against China in his final weeks in office, announced that the Trump administration had determined that China has committed “genocide and crimes against humanity” in northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

“Pompeo has made so many lies in recent years, and this is just another outrageous lie,” Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said.

“This so-called determination by Pompeo is nothing but wastepaper. This US politician, notorious for lying and cheating, is making himself a laughing stock and a clown,” she said.

The allegations of abuses are “outright sensational pseudo-propositions and a malicious farce concocted by individual anti-China and anti-Communist forces represented by Pompeo,” Hua said, adding genocide “had never happened in the past, is not happening now and will never happen in China.”

Miners recover after receiving food, medicines


2021-01-20 浏览

Miners trapped underground for nine days in east China’s Shandong Province have recovered some strength after food and medical supplies were lowered to them, rescuers said on Tuesday, as authorities race to save the workers.

Twenty-two workers have been stuck 600 meters underground at the Hushan mine in Qixia under Yantai City after an explosion damaged the entrance on January 10.

After days without any signs of life, some of the trapped miners managed to send up a note attached to a metal wire which rescuers had dropped into the mine on Sunday.

Pleading for help, the handwritten message said a dozen of them were alive but were “heavily exhausted and in urgent need of stomach medicine, painkillers, medical tape, external anti-inflammatory drugs, and three people have high blood pressure.”

Rescuers have dug channels and sent supplies down thin shafts. The fourth batch of the nutrient solution was delivered to the miners early on Tuesday, in addition to millet congee, thermometers and blankets. Counselors have been in place to boost the miners’ confidence, said Song Xicheng, a member of the rescue and medical team at the site. A miner’s head injury has been bandaged, and two miners who were very weak are now able to walk, according to Song.

Eleven of the miners were found on Sunday through a drilled channel. They had a phone conversation with rescuers on Monday after a wired telephone was installed underground through the channel. The conversation revealed that 11 miners were stuck in one section of the gold mine and one person in another, while the whereabouts of the other ten workers are still unknown.

China’s National Health Commission has sent an expert team to Qixia to guide and assist in medical aid for trapped workers. The team consists of five medical experts from leading hospitals in Beijing, covering the fields of intensive care medicine, nutrition, neurosurgery, occupational disease and poisoning treatment, as well as psychological intervention, the commission said.

Norway says no links between deaths and vaccine


2021-01-20 浏览

Norway said on Monday no link had been established between Pfizer/BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine and post-vaccination deaths in the country, but recommended doctors consider the overall health of the most frail before giving them the jab.

Since the start of Norway’s vaccination campaign at the end of December, the country has registered 33 deaths among elderly people who have received their first dose, according to the country’s public health authorities.

Of the 13 cases analyzed in detail so far, “they are people of advanced age, are frail and have serious illnesses, all of them,” said Camilla Stoltenberg, director of the Norwegian Institute of Public Health. “When it comes to causes there hasn’t been any analysis done yet.”

She added: “It is important to remember that on average about 45 people die every day at nursing homes in Norway, so it’s not given that this represents any excess mortality or that they are related to the vaccines.”

After the reports of deaths, Norway has nonetheless stressed that doctors should individually consider whether patients who are frail or terminally ill should receive the vaccine.

“It’s not impossible that some of those who have gotten the vaccine are so frail that maybe you should have reconsidered and not given them the vaccine, because they are so sick that they might have become worse from the normal side effects as the body reacts and builds up immunity,” Stoltenberg said.

The Norwegian Medicines Agency said last week that normal side effects from messenger RNA vaccines, such as fever and nausea, “may have contributed to a fatal outcome in some frail patients.”

A number of countries have reported post-inoculation deaths but no direct links to the vaccine have been established.

Pfizer and BioNTech said on Monday they were working with the NMA to collect all the relevant information.
