|BEIJING Adidas Ultra Boost Laceless Hombre Negras España , Jan. 8 (Xinhua) -- China said Monday that it expected that Japan could meet it "half-way" to improve bilateral ties this year.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang made the remarks at a daily press briefing, when commenting on reports that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe recently said that he wanted 2018 to be the year which people in Japan and China saw a "great improvement" in bilateral relations.
Lu said that China has noted the positive remarks and hoped Japan would act upon the four political documents and four-point principled consensus between China and Japan, and seize the opportunity of the 40th anniversary of the signing of the China-Japan Treaty of Peace and Friendship Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 Hombre Blancas España , to create favorable conditions for bilateral exhange and cooperation.
BEIJING, Dec. 25 (Xinhua) -- China will renovate 5.8 million dilapidated homes in 2018 to speed up urbanization.
The country started renovation of 6.1 million homes in 2017, more than the target of 6 million Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Supreme Negras Rojas España , according to Wang Menghui, minister of housing and urban-rural development.
Total investment reached 1.84 trillion yuan (280 billion U.S. dollars) for the year, he said.
Authorities should increase the supply of public rental housing and offer them to poor families and groups including sanitation workers Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Negras Rojas España , young teachers and migrant workers.
China plans to renovate 15 million homes from 2018 to 2020, according to official document released earlier this year.
The plan was part of efforts to fulfill the government's promise to rebuild rundown areas with a combined total of 100 million residents.
The transformation has remained a priority for the government in recent years. In the past eight years, more than 80 million people with poor living conditions moved out of rundown areas and into new homes.
WASHINGTON， April 14 (Xinhua) -- Republican presidential hopeful Senator Ted Cruz on Thursday doubled down on calling his Party's leader in the U.S. Senate a liar despite his campaign's recently intensified efforts to court GOP elites.
"Every word I said there was true and accurate，" said Cruz during a town hall hosted by MSNBC in Buffalo， New York.
The showdown between Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Cruz， a darling of the conservative Tea Party who had for long built reputation on bashing the GOP establishment， came last July when the junior senator from Texas called McConnell a liar during a senate floor speech on the expired Export-Import Bank.
"We now know that when the majority leader looks us in the eye and makes a commitment， he is willing to say something he knows is false，" said Cruz at the time， accusing McConnell of lying to Republican colleagues in private meetings about his intention of reviving the Ex-Im Bank.
The conservative wing of the GOP had long been attacking the Ex-Im Bank as an example of "crony capitalism."
While his blistering accusation sparked fierce backlash from Republican colleagues， who argued that the accusation had broken Senate rules， Cruz on Thursday defended his remarks.
"The reaction in the Senate is 'How dare you say that out loud? They're not upset that somebody lied to them. I mean， that's the amazing thing，" said Cruz.
According to the Senate rules， available on the Senate website， no senator in debate "shall， directly or indirectly， by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator."
Long before his anti-establishment presidential campaign began 12 months ago， Cruz had few friends on Capitol Hill and was viewed by congressional Republicans as rigid ideologue who preferred to act alone to push forward right-wing agendas at the cost of shutting down the government.
The aversion to Cruz in Washington has been summed up by a well-known joke here that goes like this: the best way for U.S. President Barack Obama to generate eight vacancies on the U.S. Supreme Court would be to nominate Cruz to the body.
As the bellicose GOP front-runner Donald Trump continued strides toward securing nomination of the Republican Party， GOP elites have become obvious in their desperate attempts to stop Trump from being nominated and begun turning to the exact man they had loathed previously and still dislike now.
In recent weeks， former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and Senator Lindsey Graham from South Carolina， both of whom had bowed out of the 2016 White House race， endorsed Cruz.
Cruz， however， had so far only garnered two endorsements from 54 Republicans in the Senate.
