For example, in March, China provided a remote-sens

sing monitor report on flooding in Iran via Fengyun. The analysis estimated the coverage and

terrain characteristics of the flooded area, which greatly assisted the country’s evacuation efforts.

China has launched 17 Fengyun series meteorological satellites, of which seven are currently operational.

The World Meteorological Organization has included China’s Fengyun se

ries of meteorological satellites as a major element of its global Earth observation system.

ountries should work together for a better future in today’s world that is globaliz

n macroeconomic terms, the China-US trade dispute ha

as added huge uncertainties to the US economy and raised the likelihood of recession. Which could

thwart the US president’s chances of being re-elected in 2020. And the trade dispute could pre

vent the US from taking the measures it intends to in order to consolidate its national power.

As for China, the significant deviation in the US’ stances and objectives

in the trade talks should be a warning for it to more strictly stick to its principles. And the

fact that the US wants to challenge the laws of economics should not be reason for China to try to do the same.

China may grant official 5G licenses, instead of the interim licenses previously planned, to tel

ecom carriers this year and is likely to start commercial use of the superfast wireless technology na

tionwide in the near future, possibly as soon as October, according to people familiar with the matter.

Huawei has said that it is willing to sign a “no-spy” agreeme

nt with countries that commit to its equipment. And this may po

nt to a reasonable solution as it offers a way out for international partners in the West, which h

ave been caught in the middle of the US-waged campaign against Huawei, to cooperate with the Chinese company.

The security of 5G networks is a technical issue, and it should be addressed as such. Security prin

ciples should be based on verifiable facts and technical data rather than ideology or a vendor’s country of origin.

However, judging by its ill treatment of Huawei since last year, t

he US will continue with its persecution and has no intention of changing its ways.

The victimization of Huawei shows the world’s largest economy no longer wants to uphold the core values that govern free trade

and fair market competition. And it is willing to use its superpower status, so that, by hook or by crook, it can obstruct co

mpetitors that might challenge its competitive edge in science and technology.

Asked whether China will retaliate by targeting certain US co

 companies, Lu said that as for foreign enterprises operating in Chi

na, there is no need for them to worry as long as their businesses are law-abiding.

S President Donald Trump issued an executive order on Wednesd

ay in which he declared a national economic emergency and banned the technology and

services of “foreign adversaries” deemed to pose “unacceptable risks” to US national security.

The US intention is so obvious that media outlets around the world have without exception interpr

eted this as targeting Huawei, by excluding the Chinese telecommunications giant from US networks.

Washington has repeatedly claimed that Huawei’s equipment poses a security threat, but for all the sound and fury, it sign

ifies nothing, as it has never produced any credible evidence, indeed any evidence at all.
