“We need to upgrade our internet services. This is a key measure t

o boost consumption and meet the needs of our massive cellphone users,” Premier Li said.

Participants at the meeting agreed that upgrading and expanding the cap

acity of internet infrastructure should be an important area in boosting effective inves

tment. By the end of this year, fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) ports relative to all broadband ports will be raised to more th

an 90 percent, 1,000M broadband will be extended to more than 300 cities, and base stations for mobile internet will be upg

And while it was perhaps the most blatant attempt by the

  ministration to wade into a foreign contest, it was not the only time the President or his tea

m has weighed in on the domestic politics of other countries. From undercutting British Prime Minis

ter Theresa May during a visit to the United Kingdom to calling attention to protests against French President Emm

anuel Macron, Trump has repeatedly sought to influence the internal affairs of the US’s closest allies — in full public view.

  ”It’s not without precedent that United States leaders have said things that affect politics in other countries, but it is without prece

dent for them to do it as brazenly as Trump has done,” said Joseph Nye, the former dean of Harvard Uni

versity’s Kennedy School of Government. “His style and the degree to which he intervenes are both unprecedented.”

  American administrations have long sought to quietly sway the domestic politics of other countries, whether throu

gh covert influence campaigns or military support. But rarely has a US president so eagerly voiced his opinions or

taken steps to influence another country’s internal affairs, particularly among close US allies.

  Instead — even when an administration’s preferred outcome was widely known or assumed — the White Hou

se maintained an officially neutral stance. A country’s internal affairs were off-limits, at least as a matter of stated position.

Wu Zunyou, chief epidemiologist at the Chinese Cente

for Disease Control and Prevention, said the latest study done in Britain shows the possibility of

curing HIV/AIDS through stem-cell transplants and is a ray of hope to those living with HIV.

“However, it is still too early to say the method can by copied and promoted extensively to treat people with HIV,” Wu said.

A big hurdle in such research is the difficulty of finding donors with the CCR5 delta 32 ge

netic mutation, given that the percentage of people with the mutation is very low among the total population, he said.

“Besides, there are different subtypes of HIV, which require different coreceptors to produce an infection,” he said. “Other HIV co

receptors exist besides CCR5, so such a method will not be effective in treating HIV if the virus infects through oth

er coreceptors,” he said. Coreceptors create a docking area on cells for HIV infection.

Wu Hao, a professor of infectious diseases at Beijing Youan Hospital, said the research is important and may have valu

e in the search for a cure for HIV patients. Some Chinese researchers are also conducting similar research, he said.

Trump vows to sign an executive order requiring colleges

  President Donald Trump vowed Saturday to sign an executive order requiring c

olleges and universities to “support free speech” in order to be eligible for federal research dollars.

  ”If they want our dollars, and we give it to them by the billions, they’ve got to allow people like

Hayden and many other great young people and old people to speak,” Trump said in part of his two-ho

ur long speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland.

  The President did not offer any more details on the order.

  Trump was referring to Hayden Williams, a conservative activist who recently made headlines

after he was allegedly punched in the face at the University of California Berkeley earlier thi

s week. The President brought Williams out as he made the announcement.

  ”Ladies and gentlemen, he took a hard punch in the face for all of us,” Trump said.

Great Diplomatic Turn, Brazil’s New President Willingness to

Brazil’s new president, Jair Bossonalo, said in an exclusive media interview Wednesday that he

was open to the possibility of future US military bases in Brazil and would like to consult with the US side.

Brazil has long pursued an independent foreign policy. Some media interpreted that allowing the United

States to set up military bases would mean a “sharp turn” in the foreign policy of the South American power.

Bossonalo also criticized Venezuela, the old rival of the United States in South America, and expressed

concern about the participation of Russian warplanes in Venezuelan air force exercises.

Great Diplomatic Turn

Brazilian Television Systems aired an interview with Bossonalo on the 3rd. This is his first interview since

he took office on January 1st. He talked about many topics of domestic and foreign affairs.

Reporters asked Bossonalo if the United States would be allowed to set up military bases on Brazilian territory.

He answered, of course, that he was willing to negotiate this possibility. “It depends on what happens in the world and who knows if we need to talk about it in the future.”

According to him, the new administration will strengthen economic relations with the

United States, as well as develop military relations and sign agreements in the military field. “We

don’t want to be a superpower in South America, but I think we should have the highest status.”

The United States regards Latin America, which includes Central and South America, as its backyard,

and exerted overwhelming influence on the region during the Cold War. Agence France-Presse and Reuters reported that for many years, Brazil’s

left-wing or centrist governments have pursued independent diplomacy free from American influence. The Left-wing government led by the

Labour Party has been playing against the United States on the international stage from time to time. Bossonalo sought to reorient Brazil’s

diplomacy and alliance with the United States in some respects. Speaking on the phone with Secretary

of State Mike Pompeo on the 2nd, he said that the two countries are now “friends”.

On the same day, in a speech to police in Rio de Janeiro, the state capital, Wilson Witzer, an ally of Bossonalo,

said Brazil needed “its own Guantanamo prison” and “terrorists to be locked up so that society can get rid of them completely”.

The United States established a military base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 1903, and a prison in the base in 2002, where hundreds of terror

suspects were detained. The prison is notorious for its abuse scandal. Since the victory of the 1959 revolution,

Cuba has opposed the existence of US military bases and demanded the withdrawal of US troops.
