US President Donald Trump has extended sanctions against North Korea for a year, despite a recent summit with the DPRK leader.
This was reported by the press service of the White House.
According to the report, Trump has extended the restrictions imposed by the United States between 2010 and 2017. The validity of sanctions, including, inter alia, restrictions on imports and asset freezes, ended June 26.
“The existence and distribution of weapons-friendly materials on the Korean Peninsula, as well as the actions of the North Korean government continue to pose an extreme threat to US national security, foreign policy and the economy,” the White House emphasized.
Trump threatens to impose duties on Chinese goods for $ 200 billion
Donald Trump instructed to prepare a list of Chinese goods worth $ 200 billion, which will be levied with 10% duties.
This is stated in a statement circulated by the White House.
“I instructed the US representative in trade negotiations to determine $ 200 billion worth of Chinese goods for additional duties of 10%,” the US president said.
He stressed that tariffs for these goods will be introduced “after the completion of the legal process” and in the event that China again raises its duties.
Trump recalled that he had previously announced a decision to impose 25% customs duties on goods imported from China to the United States from July 6, with a total value of $ 34 billion. “These tariffs are imposed to encourage China to change its unfair technology practices and innovation. They also serve as the first step towards balance in our trade relations with China, ”said Trump.
According to him, unfortunately, China decided that it would take similar measures in scale.
A new round of war: trump again accuses China of manipulating the yuan
The European Commission did not believe in the existence of the problem of fascism even after the neo-Nazi party won 21% in the elections in Hungary. Moreover, according to the European Commissioner, in Europe there are no people who treat immigrants badly.
Laszlo Andor, European Commissioner for Labor Market, Social Issues and Social Integration Policy (concurrently – Hungarian economist), said that hatred of immigrants is not a real problem for the EU, but a question that is being fanned from literally nothing. If we talk about immigrants of Bulgarian and Romanian nationality, then, according to Andor, only Denmark and the UK say that they are experiencing difficulties: “Discussions in these countries are getting on your nerves, because such a myth as“ tourism for the purpose of earning ”is also discussed .
But it is worth noting that in Hungary itself, the Jobbik party, which is considered the ultra-right, won 21% of the vote in parliamentary elections. In 2010, the Nazis had 16%, which indicates a trend. Obviously, the Nazis did not rise to any specific short-term problem, but to the moods that remained for a long time in society. Representatives of Jobbik Magyarországért Mozgalom openly say that Romanians and Jews are their enemies, and the pro-Nazi rulers of the Second World War are a role model. They have connections with militants staging riots and clashes with citizens of Romanian nationality.
The party’s manifesto of 2010 states: “The coexistence of Magyars and Gypsies is one of the most acute problems for Hungarian society. A part of the gypsy population does not want integration or education, and only counts on the fact that society will support these citizens without any conditions. Some types of crimes are associated with this particular minority, and as a result, we are saying that the use of a suitable medicine is necessary. ”
If we talk about the main party of Hungary, Fidesz, and its leader Viktor Orban, who was re-elected as prime minister, then here some of the “radical” ideas could not do. The rewritten Constitution of Hungary suggests that this country is Christian, and same-sex marriages are not natural. This, of course, is not fascism, but we also do not see tolerance traditional for the EU.
Is there a problem of illegal or unwanted migration in the EU? Of course, it is not only in Denmark or Great Britain, but also in Hungary itself.
In this context, the rhetoric of the European Commission sounds at least strange.
