His full political arsenal was on display in a Trumpian mastercl

  class of a photo-op in the Oval Office Thursday with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.

  A historian 100 years hence could pull the tape of the 16-minute tour de force and learn everything they needed to know about the Trump presidency.

  Trump’s behavior on Thursday offered pointers to how he will attempt to ride out political crosswinds using the uni

que political tools that made his late-in-life transition from business to Washington so successful.

  Thursday’s rebuke from Congress came amid a spell that wo

uld have been disastrous for any conventional politician, as legal and congressional probe

s suggest tough challenges ahead as special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report looms. Unusually, it also included a

slap from some Republicans who have been loath to challenge their leader in the first two years of his presidency.

  Trump’s refusal to show weakness or humility in defeat allied with a brazen, relentless

temperament and an indifference to shame helps explain why he is so hard to bring down.

No survivors in Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 crash near Ad

  All 157 people on board an Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed soon after taking off from Addis Ababa have been killed, the airline said on Sunday morning.

  The plane, en route to Nairobi, Kenya, lost contact at 8:44 a.m. local time, six min

utes after taking off from Bole International Airport in the Ethiopian capital.

  Ethiopian Airlines CEO, Tewolde GebreMariam, told reporters at a press conference that

the pilot had reported technical difficulties and asked for clearance to return to Addis Ababa.

  He was given clearance to turn back, according to GebreMariam, citing the Air Traffic Controllers record.

  The pilot was a senior Ethiopian Airlines pilot who had flow

n more than 8,000 hours. He had an “excellent flying record,” according to the CEO.

  The aircraft, flight number ET302, went down near Bishoftu, southeast of Addis

Ababa. An airline spokesperson told CNN the victims were of 35 different nationalities.

  The spokesperson said 32 Kenyans, 18 Canadians, nine Ethio

pians, eight Americans, eight Italians and seven UK nationals were among the passengers.

  Eight Chinese passengers were also on board, said Li Liang, spokesperson for the Chinese Embassy to

The stand-off has seen both sides engage in increased m

  exchanges across the heavily fortified Kashmir border. At least eight Pakistani civilians died in c

ross-border shelling from India since Thursday night in several areas in Pakistani-controlled Ka

shmir, Raja Moazzam, Pakistan state director for disaster management told CNN Friday.

  Moazzam said dozens of houses have been damaged from shelling and hundreds of peo

ple have been moved other areas. About 600 people are taking shelter in state run camps, he said.

  India has accused Pakistan of initiating the exchange of fire.

  Speaking with CNN’s Christine Amanpour on Thursday, Qureshi said that the re

lease of the pilot should be seen as an expression of his country’s willingness to de-escalate.

  He also confirmed that Masood Azhar, leader of the Jaish-e-Mohammed militant group that India said it targeted in i

ts pre-dawn strike in Pakistan territory on Tuesday, is in Pakistan. “He is very unwell,” Quresh said. “He is un

well to the extent that he cannot leave his house, because he is really unwell, so that’s the information I have.”

Wang Junsheng, an international relations expert with

the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, expressed his optimism about the second summit and said that given the DPRK’s announcement that it would shift its strate

gic focus to economic development, the country will likely make concessions on giving up its nuclear weapons during th

is summit in exchange for the lifting of sanctions and the declaration of the end of the war.

Wang said denuclearization is an irreversible trend.

But Jenny Town, a research analyst at the Stimson Center in Washington, worried that it will be difficul

t for the two leaders to generate a specific road map and schedule for denuclearization at a single summit.

Also on Wednesday, the Republic of Korea’s presidential Blue House spokesman sa

id, “Whatever concessions Trump and Kim may make at their upcoming summit will be significant as th

ey will mean further progress toward the complete denuclearization of Pyongyang.”

Trump met separately with Vietnamese President Nguyen Phu Tro

ng and Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc earlier on We

dnesday. Kim is likely to meet the Vietnamese leaders during his two-day “official goodwill” visit after the summit w

ith Trump, given the local media reports saying Kim would leave the country on Saturday.

Sci-fi blockbuster showcases Chinese vision of cooperation

China’s sci-fi blockbuster The Wandering Earth broke Chinese film’s five-year box office record on th

e North American market. Based on the novel by Liu Cixin, the movie is said to usher in China’s sci-fi blockbuster era.

Does this film resonate simply because it is a good sci-fi film made by Chinese? Of course not. It is mainly because the story reflects the co

mmon concern of people of different color, belief and nationality in the world. That is: the fate of the Earth. We

share a common destiny because we are living in the same global village. The movie has struck a responsive chord in the hearts of its audiences.

American sci-fi filmmakers have a prolonged enthusiasm about the fate of the Earth from the early stage to recent years.

From The Day of the Earth Stood Still in the 1950s to Armageddon (1998) and MegaFault (2009), a long list can be m

ade. Of course, the heroes who saved the planet were all Americans without exception. But this time it is Chinese.

The Wandering Earth shows that Chinese people are sentimentally attached to their mother pl

anet and foreigners feel the same. Indeed, Chinese people offered their own solution in the film. But in fact, the

success of The Wandering Earth is not who saved the planet, but people resolving a severe problem faced by mankind.

ooperation will bring benefits to the two countries while

conflicts will injure both sides, he added.Xi called China-US ties one of the world’s most important

bilateral relationships, and the two countries have wide common interests a

nd shoulder important responsibilities in safeguarding world peace and promoting global prosperity.

Maintaining the healthy and stable development of the China-US relationship is in line with the fundamen

tal interests of the people of both countries, and it is also the common wish of the international community, Xi said.

Xi mentioned his latest meeting with US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the G20 Leaders

Summit in Argentina in December, saying that the two leaders reached important consensuses.

The two countries should promote building stable, cooperative and coordinative Chi

na-US relations, Xi said. The two sides should enhance communication, focus on cooperation a

nd handle disputes to promote economic and trade cooperation, Xi added.

Promising progress needs pushing forward to a deal Chin

In welcome news, it seems that the latest talks between China and the United States, which concluded on Friday, have further na

rrowed their differences and expanded their common ground on key trade and economic issues.

The two sides entered the two days of high-level talks on Thursday amid a flurry of positive sig

nals that progress was being made. And it seems that their candid discussions have continued to be rewarded.

There has clearly been movement on a number of topics that have been the focus of their recent tra

de rows. Speaking to President Xi Jinping after the talks wrapped up, US Trade Representative Ro

bert Lighthizer said the negotiators “feel we have made headway on very, very important and difficult issues”.

It is probably still too early to conclude that this heralds an end to the long-running trade d

ispute between the two countries, and it would be rash to be overly sanguine about the prospects for re

lations given Washington’s anxieties about China’s rise, which may simply be chann

eled in other ways. But the agreement between Xi and his US counterpart Donald Trump in December to press the pause button on frictions,

and the subsequent intense series of discussions to find ways to stop them escalating, show both sides are aware of ho

w damaging and potentially dangerous it would be to keep locking horns over their trade relations.
