The Indian governmen上海419品茶微信t has decided to impose retaliatory d

uties worth over 200 million US dollars on 29 products from the United States to co

unter the penal duties imposed on Indian aluminum and steel, local media reported Saturday.

The decision, to be officially notified on Sunday, came a few days ahead

of the scheduled visit of the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to India to discuss def

ense and trade issues, the Hindu Business Line quoting an unnamed government official as saying.

The trade concerns including the proposed withdrawal of the Generalized System of Preferences by the United States o

As one of the most recognized movie events in Chin

ina, the festival-which will be held through April 20-recently announced 15 nominated fil

ms, including The Composer, which will contend for the festival’s top honor, the Tiantan Award.

Inspired by a speech made by President Xi Jinping during his v

isit to Kazakhstan in 2013, the film looks back at the life of Xian, a music

ian who was once a household name and best known for his epic work, Yellow River Cantata.

When the Great Patriotic War (the Soviet Union’s defensive war again

st the invasion of Nazi Germany) broke out in 1941, Xian-who was assigned by the Commu

nist Party of China to work in Moscow-found himself stranded in Almaty, the largest city in Kazakhstan.

With the help of Kazakh musician Bakhytzhan Baikadamov and his family, Xian spent his final years living out the war in K

azakhstan, where he concentrated on writing music. In early 1945, the musician who was suffering fro

m multiple diseases was sent back to Moscow, where he died in a local hospital on Oct 30 the same year.

The pound fell on the uncertainty surrounding the poten

ial delay and the fact that a no-deal Brexit remained possible. By 1800 GMT it was down around 0.4 percent against the dollar.

Nearly three years after the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, there is still no

clarity over how, when or even whether the world’s fifth largest economy should leave the bloc it joined in 1973.

When May set the March 29 exit date two years ago by serving the formal

Article 50 divorce papers, she declared there would be “no turning back”. But parliament’s ref

usal to ratify the withdrawal deal she agreed with the EU has thrust her government into crisis.

The Labour Party said that, by choosing a short delay, May was forcing

lawmakers to decide between accepting a deal they have already rejected or leaving without a deal.
