It was in the European Parliament elections five years

ago that small numbers of nationalists and far-right politicians won seats, signaling the challenges since faced by ruling parties acr

oss the EU, said Cui Hongjian, director of the department for European studies at the China Institute of International Studies.

Mainstream European political groups have tried hard to curb their

rise and haven’t coped well with problems raised by the populist and far-right parties, Cui said.

Clemens von Goetze, Germany’s ambassador to China, said at a news conference

in Beijing on Saturday that he hopes mainstream political groups that support the integration of EU will win the elections.

He said, mainstream groups in Germany are working hard to tell voters the importance of the EU and encouraging those realize the value of EU integration to

cast their ballots this week. The turnout of voters was quite low in the 2014 European Parliament elections.

on to defend its due interests and legitimate rights in international trade and economic cooperation, according to analysts.

lks and pledged to further expand market access for global businesses, said Liang Ming, a senior resea

rcher at the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation.

China has emphasized that the US should not use the tariff method. That is not just for China’s benefit; it is the rational choice a

us on translational research that applies a new discovery from basic research and moves it along toward clinical practice.

“But I think Chinese scientists need to focus more on making innovative and new dis

coveries from basic research and develop new methods for cancer treatment from that,” he said.

China and the US are working together in many medical research areas, Chen said, citing the clinica

l practice cooperation between China and large US pharmaceutical companies, which he said is “huge now”.

“The cooperation between specialists and pharmaceutical companies in China and the US can potentially accelerate resea

Chen said that there are still many other areas in which the US and China can work together.

Border patrol officers apprehended 66,450 people at the

southern border in February, two and a half times the number they apprehended in February 2018.

It is not clear how shutting down ports of entry would deter asylum see

kers, as they are legally able to request help as soon as they set foot on US soil.

But a border shutdown would disrupt tourism and commerce betwe

en the United States and Mexico, which totaled $612 billion last year, according to the US Cen

sus Bureau. Nielsen warned that the personnel shift would lead to commercial delays and longer wait times at crossing points.

Trump is trying to convince Congress to sign off on a revised trade

agreement with Mexico and Canada that his administration negotiated last year.

Trump delivered his latest threat in a series of Twitter as at least hundreds of migrants were

being held in a chain-link enclosure in El Paso, Texas, a border patrol official saying on Thursday that migra

nts were crossing at an average of 570 people per day in the area, the highest rate in more than a decade.
