Senior CPC official vows to enhance China-Cuba ties

China vowed continued exchange of governing strategies with Cuba as communist party officials from both countries met in Beijing on Thursday. The two countries share time-honored friendly relations, Liu Yunshan, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, said during a meeting with Cuban Communist Party (CCP) members in the Great Hall of the People. The Cuban delegation is headed by Mercedes Lopez Acea, a member of the Political Bureau of the CCP Central Committee and first secretary of the municipal CCP committee of Havana. They are in Beijing to attend the first CPC-CCP theory seminar. Liu said Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Cuba in July was of great significance for improving friendly relations between the two countries. He said China is ready to strengthen cooperation with Cuba in all areas. Noting China and Cuba share the same ideals and long-standing tradition of friendship, Liu said it is of great importance for the ruling communist parties of both countries to emphasize the crucial role of the communist party and exercise strict self control in the party. Lopez said the Chinese president’s visit to Cuba helped place bilateral relations at a new starting point. She said Cuba is actively updating its economic model and is ready to learn from China through exchanges between the communist parties so as to jointly advance the socialist cause.

Pregame blasts rock German soccer team bus, player injured

Team bus of the Borussia Dortmund football club damaged in an explosion is seen on April 12, 2017 in Dortmund, Germany. DORTMUND, Germany — Three explosions went off near the team bus of Borussia Dortmund, one of Germany’s top soccer clubs, as it set off for a Champions League quarterfinal match on Tuesday evening. One of Dortmund’s players was injured.Police said they were working on the assumption that the blasts were directed at the Dortmund team and caused by “serious explosive devices,” which may have been hidden in a hedge near a car park.The explosions happened as the team was departing its hotel for a first-leg match against Monaco. The game was called off shortly before kickoff and rescheduled for Wednesday.A letter claiming responsibility was found near the site of the blasts, prosecutor Sandra Luecke told a late evening news conference. She said investigators are examining the authenticity of what was written in the letter, but wouldn’t reveal more about its contents, citing the ongoing investigation.The case is being investigated as attempted homicide, Luecke said.”We had to assume, and assumed right from the start, that this was a targeted attack against the team of Borussia Dortmund,” Dortmund Police Chief Gregor Lange. Investigators are not excluding any possible angles in their investigation, while the “concrete background” to the blasts remains unclear, he said.There were three explosions near the Dortmund bus as the team left the L’Arrivee Hotel and Spa on the outskirts of the western city of Dortmund for the stadium, around 10 kilometers (6 miles) away, at 7.15 p.m. local time (1715 GMT), police said.File photo of Borussia Dortmund’s Marc Bartra. A window on the bus was damaged and Spanish defender Marc Bartra was injured. Club spokesman Sascha Fligge said Bartra was operated on late Tuesday for a broken bone in his right wrist and to remove “foreign objects” from his arm.Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Buerki said the team bus had just pulled out of the hotel driveway when an explosion — a “huge bang” — happened and sent glass flying. Buerki, who is from Switzerland, told Swiss daily Blick that he was sitting in the last row of the bus, next to Bartra.Bartra was hit by shards from the broken back window, he added. Players ducked for cover, wondering whether there would be more explosions.”We’re all shocked — nobody thought about a football match in the minutes after that,” Buerki said.Previous Page 1 2 3 Next Page
