China envoy wants to resolve WTO row with US in Brexit style

Zhang Xiangchen said on Wednesday while addressing WTO members, including US ambassador, in a meeting in Geneva, that he was fond of the way the speaker of Britain’s parliament has been handling Brexit debates over the past months. “I very much like the style and the voice of John Bercow, who is the speaker of the House of Commons,” Zhang said, referring to Brecow’s impartial way of allowing pro and anti-Brexit lawmakers to make their comments during the debates in the parliament. The remarks came as US ambassador to the WTO repeated Washington’s proposals for changes in the trade organization so that developing countries could face more restrictions in the global market. Zhang said the WTO should consider Bercow’s manner of dealing with repeated government attempts to go through the parliament with similar proposals, insisting it should not allow the US to force its way through with reforms that have been rejected by many WTO members. “I think perhaps we should consider having similar rules to ensure the quality of our discussions,” he said while referring to an “important decision” by Bercow earlier this year which blocked government from coming to the chamber with the same Brexit deal. China and the US have been locked in a massive trade standoff since President Donald Trump came to office in January 2017. Washington has been seeking changes to the WTO rules so that China’s access to markets in the West could come under stricter control. China and many of its trade partners have slammed the posture, saying any such reforms could only favor the US and lead to more protectionism in the global trade.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: Paypal: **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
