" US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's proposed anti-terrorism policy could smoothen China-US ties Wholesale Carolina Hurricanes Jerseys , but the US ""double standard"" on its definition of terrorism may still hinder cooperation, analysts said.
Trump outlined his anti-terror-themed foreign policy on Monday, proposing that any country which shares the goal of fighting ""radical Islamic terrorism"" will be deemed a US ally Wholesale Calgary Flames Jerseys , USA Today reported.
Trump also said on Monday that his administration will ""aggressively pursue joint and coalition military operations to crush and destroy ISIS, international cooperation to cut off their funding, expand intelligence sharing Wholesale Buffalo Sabres Jerseys , and use cyber warfare to disrupt and disable their propaganda and recruiting.""
""Trump's foreign policy, which centers around fighting what he calls 'radical Islamic terrorism,' will to some extent ease the current sour China-US ties Wholesale Boston Bruins Jerseys ,"" Liu Weidong, a researcher at the Institute of American Studies of the China Academy of Social Sciences, told the Global Times.
""China and the US share a lot in common on fighting terrorism and Trump's policy seems to shift from the present focus on competition between major powers Wholesale Arizona Coyotes Jerseys , which mainly targets China to anti-terrorism, "" Xin Qiang, deputy director of the Center for US Studies at Fudan University Wholesale Anaheim Ducks Jerseys , told the Global Times.
However, it appears impossible for the US to give up its ""double standard"" in defining terrorism at home and abroad for political reasons, which may cast a shadow on sharing terror-related intelligence with China Cheap Vegas Golden Knights Jerseys , said Liu.
Liu also said political divisions in the US Congress will not subside if Trump wins in November, and he will face grave challenges and resistance from political opponents and may not fully implement his policy.
Trump promised to introduce extreme ideological vetting for all immigrants and visitors to the US to fight ""radical Islamic terrorism,"" and to temporarily suspend immigration from areas that have a ""history of exporting terrorism.""
Liu and Xin both agreed that Trump's immigration policy will have little to do with China.
NAIROBI， April 18 (Xinhua) -- Peaceful elections in Africa， a continent that had been haunted by election-related violence， have started becoming a reality， hence guaranteeing continued stability and development.
The latest case is presidential elections in Chad on April 10. Having been in power for 26 years， President Idriss Deby Itno is seeking his fifth consecutive five-year term against 12 opposition challengers.
This year alone， over 10 African countries have held various elections， most of which were concluded peacefully. In addition to Chad， those that held presidential elections include Benin， Niger， Uganda， Republic of Congo， Djibouti and Comoros Island.
Africa， a continent with the largest number of developing countries in the world， had been labeled as "the hopeless continent" by some western media outlets until 2000. In slightly over a decade， with its robust economic growth and gradual geopolitical stability， the narrative has changed to "Africa rising."
Despite a dark electoral past， recent electoral contests on the continent have generally been peaceful. The acceptance of the results by both winners and losers is a pointer to political modernization on the continent. Those elections， however， are by no means easy given most African countries' colonial experience.
For starters， maintaining a sound momentum of economic growth is a basis for peaceful elections as peace reduces uncertainty and risk， hence positively contributing to economic growth. The World Bank said in its 2016 growth forecast that sub-Saharan Africa countries sustained a robust 6.8 percent growth in Gross Domestic Product in the 2003-2008 period.
Secondly， acceptance by many incumbents to leave power after their constitutional terms also contributed to stability and development on the continent.
Muhammadu Buhari， candidate of Nigeria's opposition All Progressives Congress， was declared president after defeating then President Goodluck Jonathan in Nigeria's presidential election in 2015. For the first time， a challenger defeated a sitting president in the high-stakes contest to govern Africa's most populous country.
The election is widely hailed by regional and international organizations as political observers said Nigeria had shown a good example for the sub-region by setting a standard for other countries awaiting elections.
Thirdly， increased election monitoring and reporting by the African Union， regional bodies as well as civil society groups are also of great importance for a peaceful election.
A recent appeal by AU Commission Chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma for peaceful and transparent polls in African countries should be heeded， as this will undoubtedly protect stability and development witnessed across the continent over the last few years.
It is safe to conclude that Africa can forge ahead its development path only if political parties， candidates and their supporters could resolve the disputes that may arise through dialogue and established legal procedures.
As a matter of fact， a trend of generally peaceful elections and smooth political transitions witnessed by the world will by all means go a long way toward social stability and economic prosperity on the African continent.
The media spotlight the past few days has been on Eliot Spitzer Cheap Winnipeg Jets Jerseys , the Governor of New York, and his link to the Emperor's Club VIP prostitution ring. Whether his damaging behavior is related to an inflated sense of entitlement, the dark side of his self righteous attitude Cheap Washington Capitals Jerseys , a feeling that he's above the law, or high testosterone, seeing the anguished look on Silda Spitzer's face and knowing that he has 3 teenage daughters makes you wonder.
