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

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.

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

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

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