Nebraska has experienced historic flooding and extreme weat

  Nebraska rescue teams have been pulling trapped residents out of flood waters since Thursday.

  James Wilke, a Columbus farmer, got a call to assist a stranger, and never came home. Acco

rding to CNN affiliate KMTV, a close family friend posted on social media about his last moments.

  ”It is no surprise to anyone that knew James that when he got the phone call to assist eme

rgency responders … his answers would be yes,” Jodi L. Hefti wrote on Facebook.

  ”With the guidance of emergency responders, James drove his tractor over the Shell Cree

k bridge on the Monestary Road and the bridge gave out. James and the tractor went down into the flood water below.”

  CNN affiliates KOLN and KGIN reported the Nebraska Emergency Management Agenc

y confirmed a flood-related fatality in Platte County. The mayor of Columbus also told the affiliate sta

tions that person was a farmer on a tractor out to rescue someone from the flood waters.

When asked whether he was ready to give up nuclear wea

pons, Kim said: “If I wasn’t ready for such a thing, I wouldn’t be here.” However, he wants the sanctions to be lifted in one fell swoop.

Given that Trump did not close the door on a deal in the future, and said that he would meet with Kim ag

ain sooner or later, it may be that he simply ran out of time to talk because he had to turn his attention elsewhere.

Certainly, from the Singapore summit in June to this week’s Hanoi meeting, the dramatic rapprochem

ent between the US and the DPRK — seemingly immutable adversaries — would not have been po

ssible without the strong political will for engagement demonstrated by both sides over the past year.

Each time this has appeared at risk of being lost, other important players involved in the d

enuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, in particular the Republic of Korea and China, have prov

ided the necessary will and support to keep the engagement alive, and set the stage for Washington and Pyongyang to add

ress core issues leading up to denuclearization. They will no doubt be offering their support this time, too.

Although the high hopes for the meeting have not been met

and there is a sense of disappointment, the high-level contacts between the two sides are likely to continue.

Wang Junsheng, an international relations expert with

the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, expressed his optimism about the second summit and said that given the DPRK’s announcement that it would shift its strate

gic focus to economic development, the country will likely make concessions on giving up its nuclear weapons during th

is summit in exchange for the lifting of sanctions and the declaration of the end of the war.

Wang said denuclearization is an irreversible trend.

But Jenny Town, a research analyst at the Stimson Center in Washington, worried that it will be difficul

t for the two leaders to generate a specific road map and schedule for denuclearization at a single summit.

Also on Wednesday, the Republic of Korea’s presidential Blue House spokesman sa

id, “Whatever concessions Trump and Kim may make at their upcoming summit will be significant as th

ey will mean further progress toward the complete denuclearization of Pyongyang.”

Trump met separately with Vietnamese President Nguyen Phu Tro

ng and Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc earlier on We

dnesday. Kim is likely to meet the Vietnamese leaders during his two-day “official goodwill” visit after the summit w

ith Trump, given the local media reports saying Kim would leave the country on Saturday.

The corridor includes a network of highways, railways and

infrastructure and Gwadar is an important part of it. Pakistan has been trying to get the assistance needed for development and di

versify sources of investment from many countries such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Gwadar is not an exclusive platform.

The China-funded CPEC helps build the infrastructure at the port, and the improved condition

will attract more investment which then in turn boosts the development of Gwadar and the whole of Pa

kistan. Inclusiveness and multilateral cooperation are exactly the ideas that the BRI champions.

Admittedly, geostrategic competition is prevailing in the region. If added with the different inter

t demands of Afghanistan and Iran and the historical enmity between India and Pakistan, the region can be one of the most volatile plac

es in the world. Joint development is the only path that could lead the region into long-term peace and stability. This is also the broader objective of the BRI.

China hopes that all the investment coming into the region can be connected so as to be best utilized. Regional countri

es should enhance cooperation via coordination. Meanwhile, all should hold an open attitude toward investment from outside the region.

As each regional power vies for a foothold and seeks its development, both competition and cooperation feature in this process. All

the countries face the question of how to turn strategic hedging into benign competition. The BRI provides the answer.

Promising progress needs pushing forward to a deal Chin

In welcome news, it seems that the latest talks between China and the United States, which concluded on Friday, have further na

rrowed their differences and expanded their common ground on key trade and economic issues.

The two sides entered the two days of high-level talks on Thursday amid a flurry of positive sig

nals that progress was being made. And it seems that their candid discussions have continued to be rewarded.

There has clearly been movement on a number of topics that have been the focus of their recent tra

de rows. Speaking to President Xi Jinping after the talks wrapped up, US Trade Representative Ro

bert Lighthizer said the negotiators “feel we have made headway on very, very important and difficult issues”.

It is probably still too early to conclude that this heralds an end to the long-running trade d

ispute between the two countries, and it would be rash to be overly sanguine about the prospects for re

lations given Washington’s anxieties about China’s rise, which may simply be chann

eled in other ways. But the agreement between Xi and his US counterpart Donald Trump in December to press the pause button on frictions,

and the subsequent intense series of discussions to find ways to stop them escalating, show both sides are aware of ho

w damaging and potentially dangerous it would be to keep locking horns over their trade relations.

South Korea, US sign cost-sharing deal for American troops

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea and the United States struck a new deal Sunday that increases Seoul’s contribut

ion for the cost of the American military presence on its soil, overcoming previous fai

led negotiations that caused worries about their decades-long alliance.

The development comes as President Donald Trump is set to hold his second summit w

ith North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Vietnam in late February.

South Korea last year provided about $830 million, covering roughly 40 percent of the cost of the deployment of 28,

500 U.S. soldiers whose presence is meant to deter aggression from North K

orea. Trump has pushed for South Korea to pay more.

On Sunday, chief negotiators from the two countries signed a new cost-sharing pla

n, which requires South Korea to pay about 1.04 trillion won ($924 million) in 2019, Seoul’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The statement said the two countries reaffirmed the need for a “stable” U.S. mili

tary deployment amid the “rapidly changing situation on the Korean Peni

nsula.” The ministry said the U.S. assured Sou

th Korea that it is committed to the alliance and has no plans to adjust the number of its troops in South Korea.

  At 12:15 noon, Chen Weijia, a 2018 life science major from Zhejiang Univer

sity, rushed to the corridor of the East Second Teaching Building of Zijingang Campus. The students who received the meals had lined up in four lon

g lines. A few minutes later, Chen Weijia swiped his card and got a lunch box with two ingredients. College students who get meals are scattered and some

find good seats in the rest area. Where they can’t find a place, they just sit down in any corner of the corridor or on the steps and eat quickly.

  These meals were packed and delivered by the school canteen staff. They have a powerful name – “Xueba meal”.

  ”There are many people in the canteen and the road is far away. Choos

ing to eat”Xueba Dinner”can save time and go back to the classroom early to study.” Chen Weijia said.

  Every day, Zhejiang University canteen can sell about 1000 boxed meals. Students crouching on the roadside for lunch

have become a sight in Zijingang Campus of Zhejiang University. Some college students in Zhejiang Province said
