  • It is rare for Xi Jinping to speak so directly about the trade war and his comments come two days after Donald Trump complained that Beijing had not made sufficient concessions so far, making him reluctant to conclude a bargain. Trump on October 11 announced a "phase one" deal resolving important US grievances about Chinese trade and currency practices.

    The officials met at the two-day 4th India-China Think-Tanks Forum which concluded on Saturday with participants expressing unanimous view that both countries should cooperate closely on bilateral, regional and international issues. The Think-Tanks Forum was established between the two countries during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to China in May 2015.

    China is keen to include India in RCEP for its huge market opportunities and since India decided against joining at Bangkok, has been pushing for favourable climate for Delhi to join the block.

    China had issued threats earlier this year after the US approved arms sales to Taiwan.

    President Donald Trump declared on Tuesday that talks with China on the first phase of a trade deal were near completion after negotiators from both sides spoke by phone, signalling progress on an accord in the works.

    In a statement, Trump spoke of "respect" for Chinese President Xi Jinping and said he hoped the "leaders and representatives of China and Hong Kong will be able to amicably settle their differences". But Beijing reacted furiously, warning it was ready to take unspecified "firm countermeasures".

The previous day, media reports said that a man who spied for China in Hong Kong and Taiwan offered intelligence information to Australia and wanted political asylum.

    Obtained by ICIJ and published by 17 media outlets worldwide, the documents show the strict protocols governing life in the camps in Xinjiang, where an estimated one million Uighurs and other mostly Muslim minorities are held. In one document, local officials are told to monitor inmates at all times -- including during toilet breaks -- to prevent escape.

    Government data released one hour before polling stations closed said nearly 2.9 million people had voted, a turnout rate of more than 69% - a record showing that appeared to have been encouraged by the political turmoil. About 1.47 million voted in the last district elections four years ago. First results were due after midnight.

    Democratic candidates secured almost 90% of 452 district council seats in Sunday's poll, held during a rare weekend lull in clashes with police, despite a strongly resourced and mobilised pro-establishment opposition.

    The events were finalised in line with the understanding reached by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping during their Second Informal Summit at Mamallapuram on October 11-12 this year.
