BRUSSELS, June 22 (Xinhua) -- The High Representative of the European Union (EU) for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and the European Commission on Wednesday adopted a Joint Communication which maps out the EU's relationship with China for the next five years.

The Joint Communication identifies major opportunities for the EU's relationship with China, in particular with the aim of creating jobs and growth in Europe as well as vigorously promoting a greater opening up of the Chinese market to European business, thus contributing to the first priority of President Jean-Claude Juncker's Commission.

According to a Commission press release, such opportunities include ""concluding an ambitious and comprehensive agreement on investment, a Chinese contribution to the Investment Plan for Europe, joint research and innovation activities, as well as connecting the Eurasian continent via a physical and digital network through which trade, investment and people-to-people contact can flow"".

""Looking further ahead, broader ambitions such as a deep and comprehensive Free Trade Agreement can be considered once an ambitious investment agreement between the two sides has been concluded and reforms that level the playing field for domestic and foreign companies have been implemented,"" said the press release.

The Joint Communication also highlights opportunities for closer cooperation and partnership between the EU and China in the fields of foreign and security policy.

""Building on the positive experience of the Iran nuclear talks, the EU and China should work more closely together in order to resolve international conflicts and foreign policy priorities both bilaterally and in multilateral contexts such as the UN system and in the G20,"" it said.

""Issues of a global nature like migration, international development assistance, the environment and fighting climate change can only be resolved through a global response, and for this reason a collaborative EU-China relationship is crucial,"" it said.

The High Representative Federica Mogherini said that ""the EU and China already cooperate on so much: we work together on the global and political issues of our times, such as Iran, Syria, Afghanistan, migration and climate change. But we can and must do more to connect the EU and China.""

""Our citizens, industries, and organizations can all benefit from a closer, improved, and better-defined EU-China relationship based on shared responsibility. The Joint Communication that we have adopted today will, I am sure, enable our relationship to fulfill its clear potential,"" she said.

According to the Commission, the European Commission's last Communication on China in 2006 was adopted a decade ago. The EU and China have both undergone considerable changes since then. This new reality calls for a fresh EU narrative that recognises the need to deal with these new developments.

The EU's new strategy therefore sets out to promote EU interests and underline EU values in its relationship with China for the next five years, said the Commission.

The Joint Communication will now be presented to the Council and to the European Parliament.

BEIJING Authentic Yogi Ferrell Jersey , Feb. 4 (Xinhua) -- China firmly opposes the Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) published by the United States Department of Defense, a spokesman from China's National Defense Ministry said Sunday.

The U.S. document presumptuously speculated about the intentions behind China's development and played up the threat of China's nuclear strength, spokesman Ren Guoqiang said.

The 74-page report cast China as "a major challenge to U.S. interests in Asia," saying the U.S. strategy for China is designed to "prevent Beijing from mistakenly concluding that it could secure an advantage through the limited use of its theater nuclear capabilities or that any use of nuclear weapons, however limited, is acceptable."

Ren reaffirmed that China will resolutely stick to peaceful development and pursue a national defense policy that is defensive in nature.

China has adhered to the policy of no-first-use of nuclear weapons at any time and under any circumstances. Under no circumstances will China use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear-weapon states or nuclear-weapon-free zones, he said.

China has always exercised the utmost restraint in the development of nuclear weapons and limited its nuclear capabilities to the minimum level required for national security, he added.

The United States, which possesses the world's largest nuclear weapons arsenal, should conform to the irreversible world trend of peace and development rather than run in the opposite direction, Ren said.

"We hope the U.S. side will discard its 'cold-war mentality,' shoulder its own special and primary responsibility for nuclear disarmament, understand correctly China's strategic intentions and take a fair view on China's national defense and military development," he said.

He urged the U.S. side to meet China halfway to make military relations between the two sides a stable factor in bilateral relations, and jointly safeguard global peace, stability and prosperity.


The National Football League has named Chinese pop star Kris Wu the official Super Bowl 52 ambassador for China. The 27-year-old also performed at the pregame show to become the first Chinese artist to sing at a live concert before the big game.

As one of the most influential artists in China, Wu has a large fan base in his home country, with over 28 million followers on China's Sina Weibo platform, and 5.8 million on Instagram.

The singer has topped the music charts in China with his single "Juice," and has recently become the first and only Chinese artist to hit number one on iTunes with his newly released single "Deserve."
