Beijing News also reported that the facility caught fir

 before the explosion. The facility is adjacent to a

natural gas station, the explosion of which caused the tragedy, the report said.

An assessment report on the factory’s environmental protection

facilities drafted in July 2018 by the Jiangsu Provin

cial Academy of Environmental Science showed that Tianjiayi has a warehouse wit

h a floor area of more than 1,000 square meters to store industrial waste, which includes tar and methyl alcohol.

The assessment report said the plant generated on average about 11 metric tons of solid waste and w

aste­water per day, and there has been an accumulation of 4,500 tons of hazardous waste in the factory every

year. While some of the waste materials are transported out for disposal, others are processed within the factory.

A special license is required to dispose of hazardous waste in China. Accor

ding to the Jiangsu’s Department of Ecology and Environment, 460 enterprises in the prov

ince had the necessary licenses as of the end of 2018, but Tianjiayi was not among them.

Official records also show that Tianjiayi had been punished at least twice for violations in waste management.

They are both staunch supporters of free trade and mul

ultilateralism, and with the United States increasingly opting for unilateralism in international affairs, China and the EU can str

engthen their coordination within the framework of the United Nations and buttress the role of multilateral mecha

nisms including the World Trade Organization and the International Monetary Fund.

Beijing and Brussels are also two important voices advocating internati

onal efforts to combat climate change and promote sustainable development.

It is hoped that the leaders attending the China-EU Summit in Brussels will send positive signals that the two sides are commi

Obscure parliamentary procedures have been resurrecte

 providing daily drama from the House of Commons but making the future of Britain’s biggest change in generations no clearer.

After finally recognising that her minority Conservative g

overnment could not push through a Brexit deal on its own, May started talks this w

eek with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in the hope of coming up with a cross-party solution.

But that means accepting the need for more time, including the possibility of Britain hol

ding European Parliament elections on May 23, which May has long hoped to avoid at all cost.

“The United Kingdom proposes that this period should end on 30 June 2019,” May said in the letter.

“The government will want to agree a timetable for ratification that allows the United Kin

gdom to withdraw from the European Union before 23 May, 2019, and therefore cancel the European Parlia

ment elections, but will continue to make responsible prepara

tions to hold the elections should this not prove possible.”

  During the call, China‘s Foreign Minister Wang Yi stressed that “the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countr

same time I don’t think the Chinese really want to pick a fight with the Indians over this,” he said.
