President underlines two-way cooperation, strategic coordination
China and Turkey should enhance mutual strategic trust and respect each other’s core interests
and major concerns on such issues as sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, President Xi Jinping said on Tuesday.
Xi made the remark while meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. Previously, Xi hosted a welcoming ceremony for Erdogan.
Erdogan said that Turkey firmly supports the one-China policy, and that it is a fact that the people of all ethnicities in Xinjian
g are leading a happy life amid China’s development and prosperity. Turkey will not allow anybody to sow dissension among the two countries, he said.
Noting that both China and Turkey are important emerging markets and developin
g countries, Xi said it is of great significance for them to enhance strategic cooperation.
The two countries also should strengthen strategic coordination, consolidate the politica
l foundation of the China-Turkey strategic cooperation and cooperative relationship, a
nd ensure that the bilateral relations always operate on a healthy and stable track, Xi said.
China appreciates that Erdogan has reaffirmed his commitment many times to not allow any forces to carry out anti-Chinese or separatist activities in Turkey, Xi said.
China attaches great importance to Turkey’s stance of supporting China’s fight against te
rrorism, Xi said, adding that China would like to enhance their anti-terrorism cooperation.
Xi said the two sides should enhance connection of development strategies and deepen practical cooperation. Hailing Turkey as an important partner for join
tly building the Belt and Road, Xi said that China would like to speed up connecting the Belt and Road with Turkey’s Middle Corridor plan, and pro
mote the cooperation in areas including trade, investment, science, energy, infrastructure and major projects.
Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said on Wednesday that the aircraft manufacturer
上海千花坊is having “ongoing conversations” with airlines about possible reimbursements following the worldwide grounding of 737 MAX jets.
The airlines haven’t disclosed how much they are seeking from Boeing, but some analysts peg industrywide losses at about $1 billion. In an interview with Axios, Muilenb上海千花坊
urg didn’t say how Boeing would compensate airlines, but it could be cash, a discount on future orders or additional pilot training and services.
Airlines seeking compensation include Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Norwegian Air, Turkish Air, Ryanair, Flydubai and United Airlines.上海千花坊品茶微信
“Reimbursement isn’t a technical problem,” John Cochran, president of Eaglemark, an aviation con
sulting firm and professor emeritus of Aerospace Engineering at Auburn University, told China Daily USA. “It’s a matter of first imp
ression. Some of what Boeing proposes to do may be contractual and it’s certainly sound public relations. Boeing wants to keep its customers happy.”上海千花坊
The 10,000-member pilots union for Southwest Airlines said this month it will ask B
oeing for compensation to cover legal costs and lost income for pilots due to the 737 MAX grounding.
上海千花坊品茶微信The union hasn’t said how much pilots have lost, but it could be as much as $9 million a month, the Dallas Morning News reported.
Southwest has 34 MAX jets in its fleet. The airline said it plans to resume MAX flights on Sept
2, but the union said “there is no accurate estimate of when the MAX will return to service.”
上海千花坊品茶微信Airlines have used other planes when possible to replace grounded MAX jets, but some flights have been canceled. The airlines appa
rently seek compensation for lost revenue as well as storage and the cost of preparing the MAX to return to c
ommercial service when the US Federal Aviation Administration and other regulators say it’s safe to fly.
Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide following crashes March 10 in Ethiopi
a and October 29, 2018, in Indonesia that killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.
Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an automated anti-stall device, apparently fo
rced the noses of Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines flights down and into a fatal plunge when it erroneously deter
mined the planes were about to stall. To avoid a stall, MCAS points the nose of the plane down to gain air speed.
According to Sic爱上海品茶微信huan Provincial People’s Hospital, the 5G emergency rescue system,
which integrates artificial intelligence, augmented reality, virtual reality and drone applications, allows a series of me
dical checks including blood tests, electrocardiograms and ultrasounds to be given to patients right away. The inf
ormation can then be transferred back to the hospital in real time, which greatly saved time in rescuing patients.
The rescue system also helped another 72-year-old patient who got a fracture in the earthquake. According to report from China
news.com, a temporary ward supported by 5G technology was established at the epicenter of the di
saster zone for consultation with doctors from Chengdu, as the aged patient had a previous history of high blo
od pressure and cerebral infarction, which necessitated more careful treatment.
“The 5G-based network thoroughly solved the problems of poor
definition and distortion of images, as well as interrupted signal transmissions,” said Li W
ei, deputy director of the emergency center of Sichuan Provincial People’s Hospital.
