    Technology giant Apple have warned suppliers shipping from Taiwan to ensure that they abide by strict Chinese custom regulations – banning them from saying ‘Made in Taiwan’. The company has asked their suppliers to follow China’s long-standing rule that anything made in Taiwan has to be labeled as either ‘Taiwan, China’ or ‘Chinese Taipei’. Tensions have been rising within the US and China, after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has visited Taiwan despite repeated warnings from the Chinese not to, claiming it is a ‘violation of the one-China principle.’ She touched down in Taipei earlier this week and was greeted by Foreign Minister Joseph Wu, before China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs immediately blasted the move, calling it a 'serious disregard of China's strong opposition.’ According to a report by Nikkei Asia, the visit ‘stoked fears of rising trade barriers,’ making Apple nervous about ‘possible disruptions’. The iPhone maker has now warned suppliers that the country has started enforcing their strict customs, so to ensure that they abide by them to prevent further issues. Apple bosses have reportedly been concerned that any...
    US officials have rescheduled the long-awaited intercontinental ballistic missile test due to tensions between China and Taiwan, they announced in a briefing. The Air Force had initially planned to test the launch this week from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California before the delay. 1The US has delayed the long-planned intercontinental ballistic missile test due to tensions between China and Taiwan John Kirby with the National Safety Council said the US is: "demonstrating the behavior of a responsible nuclear power by reducing the risks of miscalculation and misperception," NBC reported. "This is a long-planned test but it is being postponed to remove any misunderstandings given the PRC’s actions around Taiwan,” the defense official said. China is carrying out a four-day series of military exercises near Taiwan, the Wall Street Journal reported. This is a response to a visit by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi earlier this week.

    CHINA reportedly plans to build 1,000 nuclear weapons in the next decade after worrying the United States would start a war before the 2020 election. According to the US Defense Department's annual China military power report, the communist nation's nuclear expansion may enable them to have "up to 700 deliverable nuclear warheads by 2027.” 1The US Defense Department claims China reportedly plans to build 1,000 nuclear weapons in the next decadeCredit: Getty Images - Getty The report also claims the project aspires to supply China with at least 1,000 nuclear weapons by 2030. The finding exceeds the Defense Department’s projections in the same report a year ago when the Pentagon said that China’s stockpile was “in the low-200s” and likely to “at least double in size.” More to follow...

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expected to meet Tuesday and consider a proposal to extend coronavirus vaccinations making 28 million younger children down to age five eligible for the shots in November. The move for paediatric doses comes just 24-hours after Beijing announced children as young as three will start receiving coronavirus vaccines across the country, where 76 percent of the China’s population has been fully vaccinated and Communist Party authorities are maintaining a zero-tolerance policy toward outbreaks. In fellow single-party, left wing dictatorships Cuba and Venezuela, mandated vaccine drives for children as young as two are already underway. AFP reports the independent experts convened by the FDA will consider the question: based on the scientific evidence available, do the benefits of the two-dose vaccine, given three weeks apart, outweigh the known risks? Producers of the Pfizer vaccine, BioNTech, have led the way in seeking the clearance for younger children to be involved, as Breitbart News reported. Producers of the Pfizer vaccine, BioNTech, are preparing to request clearance to vaccinate children five years old and older. https://t.co/A96g6iOLah...
    The United States and its allies are pinning their hopes for a second COVID-19 origins investigation in China on the World Health Organization again, despite the WHO-China joint study team’s visit to Wuhan earlier this year that essentially dismissed the lab leak hypothesis widely being considered a failure. The Trump and Biden administrations cast doubt on the joint study by Chinese government-linked scientists and international scientists organized under the auspices of the WHO that was conducted in China early this year. The WHO-China report said a lab leak was “extremely unlikely” and that a jump from animals to humans was most likely. Meeting minutes from discussions between Wuhan lab scientists and the WHO-China team reveal lab leak concerns were referred to as “conspiracy theories.” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in March that the lab leak hypothesis still needed further study. The G-7 summit’s communique this weekend called for the WHO to set up a follow-up investigation into COVID-19’s origins in China. “We therefore commit both to strengthen global action now to fight COVID-19, and to...
    It is “extremely unlikely” the coronavirus leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China, and is more likely to have jumped to humans from an animal, World Health Organization (W.H.O.) investigators said Tuesday as they wrapped up their visit to the country’s central Hubei province. Peter Embarek, leader of the W.H.O. team, told a media conference instead of investigating laboratories in the country,  frozen meats sold at the wet market in Wuhan where the first cluster of cases was detected should instead be pursued as a line of inquiry. “Our initial findings suggest that the introduction through an intermediary host species is the most likely pathway and one that will require more studies and more specific, targeted research,” Embarek said, as reported by AP. “However, the findings suggest that the laboratory incidents hypothesis is extremely unlikely to explain the introduction of the virus to the human population,” Embarek said. Peter Embarek, of the World Health Organization team holds up a chart showing pathways of transmission of the virus during a joint press conference held at the end of the W.H.O. mission in...
    President Biden's first week in office was largely focused on rolling back many of former President Donald Trump's policy priorities with a stroke of a pen, except when it came to China. From economic to foreign policy, Biden's early posture toward Beijing mirrors that of his predecessor, at least as his administration finds its proverbial feet. After running a campaign focused in part on moving on from Trump's hard-line "America first," populist governing philosophy, some of the new chief executive's top aides have said the 45th president was right to push tougher policies toward the Asian giant, even if they disagree with his rhetoric or some tactics. On Monday, for instance, White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters 25% tariffs Trump left on $250 billion worth of Chinese imports would remain in place while Biden's team continued "evaluating" them as part of his "multilateral approach to engaging with China." That Biden is keeping them, even temporarily, is notable given that he has used over 30 executive actions since Jan. 20 to undo parts of his predecessor's legacy to which...
    A “top level” mission to China to determine the exact origins of the coronavirus pandemic has ended before it began, with the head of the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) complaining Beijing is refusing entry to investigators. W.H.O. chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said he was “very disappointed” with the lack of cooperation, in the first recorded castigation of Beijing from the U.N. body. “Today, we learned that Chinese officials have not yet finalised the necessary permissions for the team’s arrivals in China,” Tedros told reporters on Tuesday. “I am very disappointed with this news, given that two members had already begun their journeys and others were not able to travel at the last minute.” He stressed he sternly told told senior Chinese officials “that the mission is a priority for W.H.O. and the international team”. “I have been assured that China is speeding up the internal procedure for the earliest possible deployment,” Tedros added. U.S. President Donald Trump led early criticism of China’s bungled handling of the pandemic, while singling out the close alliance between the W.H.O. and China as an impediment...
    Georgia Senate candidate Jon Ossoff encouraged supporters to follow Chinese state-run media on Twitter in 2012. The eight-year tweet resurfaced as evidence of Ossoffs financial ties to China mounted, the Washington Examiner reported. Ossoff, a Democrat opposing incumbent Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., in one Jan. 5 runoff, implored people to follow the Xinhua News Agency, the official state-run press agency of the Peoples Republic of China. Ossoff tweeted Nov. 7, 2012, the day after Election Day: "Esp. during 18th Party Congress, #follow @XHNews (Xinhua - Chinese state media). #ff" Ossoff filed a campaign financial disclosure in May, when he failed to reveal acceptance of more than $5,000 the past two years from the Hong Kong-based telecommunications firm PCCW Media Limited, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He amended the filing in July to include details. Perdue tweeted a link Saturday to The Washington Times report detailing the allegations of impropriety. Perdue tweeted: "Hunter Biden. Eric Swalwell. And now – Jon @Ossoff. Georgians cannot afford another China-backed liberal in Washington" The Georgia Republican Party has pursued legal action against Ossoff by asking...
    A 2012 post from Jon Ossoff revealed that the Democratic Senate candidate from Georgia urged his supporters to follow Chinese state-run media on Twitter. Ossoff told his backers to follow the Xinhua News Agency, the official state-run press agency of the People's Republic of China, in a tweet published the day after Election Day in 2012.

    During an interview with CNN on Thursday, Joe Biden stated that “it’s not about punishing” China for its handling of the coronavirus, but rather the key is “insisting that there be international norms that are established that they play by.” Host Jake Tapper asked, “The president-elect has said he will not immediately remove the Trump tariffs on China. Should the Chinese government, in your view, be further punished for mishandling and hiding the truth about the novel coronavirus that began there?” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) responded that due to not being in office yet and being early in the process of having access to classified information, “we’re not in a position to respond to that specifically.” Biden added, “Jake, the president’s approach to China has been backwards. My concern from the beginning, I’ve spoken about it, and I’ve met with Xi more times than anybody had up until the time we left office, that I’m aware of, is to make it real clear to China, there are international rules that if you want to play by, we’ll play with you....

    Washington (CNN)Jonathan Swan, a reporter for Axios, has revealed the magic words that expose President Donald Trump's lies for what they are.Who? What? How? No.Read MoreIn an interview that aired Monday night on "Axios on HBO," Swan demolished some of Trump's most dishonest talking points with a powerful tactic that has rarely been used by the people Trump has allowed to interview him:Basic follow-up questions.Many of Trump's interviewers are right-wing sycophants who have no interest in challenging him. But Trump has defeated even his other interviewers by employing a strategy we can call the hit-and-run -- saying dishonest stuff, then darting ahead to other dishonest stuff before the interviewer reacts. Swan -- like Fox News' Chris Wallace, to a slightly lesser extent, in an interview that aired July 19 -- came armed with facts and prepared to use them, even if he had to interrupt Trump like Trump interrupts others. And Trump wasn't ready to respond.Take their exchange about coronavirus testing. Trump uttered a version of his now-familiar refrain about how testing is overrated -- attributing this nonsense to unnamed...
    QUITO (Reuters) - Chinese fishing vessels operating in the vicinity of the Galapagos Islands are complying with international fishing regulations on the high seas and none have been reported for illegal activities, China's ambassador to Ecuador said on Monday. Ecuador's armed forces last week said 149 of some 325 vessels still fishing near the ecologically sensitive islands had turned off tracking systems to prevent monitoring of their activities. "Except for some delays or temporary loss of satellite signal, all Chinese ships keep operating and using monitoring systems normally," Ambassador Chen Guoyou told the international relations commission of Ecuador's congress, speaking through an interpreter. The government of President Lenin Moreno has said that the fleet has not entered the Ecuador's territorial waters. But environmentalists say this type of fishing allows Chinese ships to take advantage of the abundant species that leave the Galapagos Exclusive Economic Zone and cross into the high seas where Ecuador does not have jurisdiction. Guoyou said the vessels are mostly fishing for squid, with a small percentage of them fishing for tuna. "The operating characteristics of squid...
    CHINA launched its most ambitious Mars mission yet on Thursday in a bold attempt to join the United States in successfully landing a spacecraft on the red planet. The Tianwen-1 was launched on a Long March-5 carrier rocket from a launch site on Hainan Island. 1 The Long March 5 Y-4 rocket, carrying an unmanned Mars probe of the Tianwen-1 mission, takes off from Wenchang Space Launch Center in Wenchang, Hainan Province, China July 23, 2020Credit: Reuters It marked the second flight to Mars this week, after a United Arab Emirates orbiter blasted off on a rocket from Japan on Monday. America is also aiming to launch Perseverance, its most sophisticated Mars rover ever, from Cape Canaveral, Florida, next week. China's tandem spacecraft — with both an orbiter and a rover — will take seven months to reach Mars, like the others. If all goes well, Tianwen-1, or "quest for heavenly truth," will look for underground water, if it's present, as well as evidence of possible ancient life. More to follow...

    London (CNN)When the UK announced its U-turn on allowing the Chinese telecoms giant Huawei to play a part in the country's 5G network, it signaled an end to the so-called "golden era" of UK-China relations. To the delight of US President Donald Trump, the UK would seemingly no longer equivocate on its national security in order to balance its relationship with China -- and would instead adopt something closer to a US-style hard line.Oliver Dowden, the UK's secretary of state for Culture, Media and Sport, said that the US sanctions imposed on Huawei in May had "significantly changed" the landscape. "Given the uncertainty this creates around Huawei's supply chain, the UK can no longer be confident it will be able to guarantee the security of future Huawei 5G equipment."While the Huawei decision might in practice only be a reversal on one specific issue, it represents a huge symbolic win for British China hawks, who have been uncomfortable with the creep towards greater engagement with Beijing over the past two decades and have recently advocated for a much tougher stance on...
