We don’t know” what Kim will decide to do in the future and

  that any decision to resume such testing may “very much be his decision, and his decision alone,” Biegun said. He also noted that Trump has “made clear” how disap

pointed he would be if testing resumed. A senior US defense official told CNN Monday that the commercial sate

llite imagery doesn’t show anything that raises imminent alarm for the US at this time.

  North Korea acknowledged for the first time last Friday that the Hanoi summit ended “unexp

ectedly without an agreement.” Despite previously painting the Trump-Kim summit in Vietnam in a posi

tive light, state news agency KCNA said the meeting hadn’t gone as well as expected.

  The US had hoped the summit would demonstrate the success of Trump’s diplomatic gamble with North Korea, but instead

the meeting ended with no joint agreement, after Kim demanded all US sanctions be lifted on his country.

  ”Sometimes you have to walk,” Trump said during a news conference followin

g the conclusion of the talks, which broke up earlier than planned. “This was just one of those times.”

  CNN’s Jamie Crawford and Barbara Starr contributed to this report.

More than 61,000 people were indicted in connectio

n with related crimes last year, and a group of mafia-like gangs that had been bullying people were punished.

Faced with an increase in crimes that harm minors in recent years, the top procurato

rate and all provincial-level procuratorates have established special prosecutorial departments to handle cas

es involving minors — the first such practice among all judicial agencies in the country, Zhang said.

A total of 1,761 chief procurators across the country have held concurrent posts as vice-principal

s of primary or middle schools in charge of education about the law and to ensure a safe campus, he said.

To better handle petitions from the public, the top procuratorate has instructed prosecuting

authorities to put themselves in the place of the petitioners and provide feedback on each petition within seven days.

Luan Shengjun, founder of the restaurant chain Kum

Canteen, which specializes in Japanese food, said that in each of its outlets about 10 seats are spec

ially designed for solo diners, where they can watch chefs making sushi and sashimi at close hand. The r

estaurants also offer small-sized portions of classic dishes so that solo diners can taste a variety of food.

“If solo customers feel like talking, we encourage our chefs to respond enthusiastically. For example, they intro

duce customers to the process of making food and sometimes even have a drink with them,” he said.

Chinese singles, many of whom are well-educated and financially independent, also like traveling alone.

Figures from travel service provider Tuniu.com show that solo travel h

as become increasingly popular with those born in the 1990s. Last year, the number of pe

ople born in that decade who traveled alone rose by 10 percent compared with 2017.

Icebreaker returns home early after hitting iceberg

The Chinese icebreaker Xuelong, carrying the 349 members of China’s 35th research mission to Antarctica, returne

d to Shanghai safely on Tuesday, about a month earlier than originally scheduled due to a collision with an iceberg.

Despite the Jan 19 collision in the Amundsen Sea, the crew managed to carry out com

prehensive research at five stations, including Changcheng, Zhongshan and Taishan, aerial geop

hysical remote sensing observation in the southeast polar ice cap, and marine surveys in the Amundsen Sea.

“Our team obtained valuable data and samples on the expedition, and filled the scientific ga

ps in the investigation of the Amundsen Sea area,” said Li Yuhong, an assistant researcher from No 3 Marine In

stitute of the Department of Natural Resources, who joined the 35th expedition

The research team also completed its first test drillin

g without a drill pipe core in polar ice bedrock, which helped the scientists obtain the first few samples of bedrock unde

r the ice cores at the station. The conwwwhebeishengxincn-2/ion was also compleexpedition.

Xuelong left Shanghai on Nov 2 and arrived at Zhongshan Station on

Nov 30. The icebreaker entered the Amundsen Sea in early January for a marine survey but

experienced “the worst sea conditions since departure”, according to an earlier report by China Ocean News.

On Jan 19, the ship was caught in a sudden thick fog on the Amundsen Sea and collided with an

iceberg, Cheng Xiao, dean of the College of Global Change and Earth System Science at Beijing Normal University, told Xinhua.

An increase of cyclones in the area since the start of 2019 has great

ly increased the number of floating ice fragments, while in 2018 the area was a single large ice sheet, Ch

en said. The floating ice drifted to the north, pushed by the wind, which also affected navigation on Xuelong’s trip home, he added.

said it provided tailored services for the major gov

ernment campaigns aimed at addressing three causes of popular discont

ent, namely cracking down on organized crimes, crimes disrupting the poverty relief

program, and those ruining the national environmental protection campaign.

The Supreme People’s Court said in its report that it had fulfilled the task it set itself in 201

6 to “basically resolve the problem of difficulties in implementing court rulings in two or three years”, an achi

evement that has boosted judicial credibility and strengthened public confidence in the entire justice system.

National security, crimes endangering public safety, and the correcting of wrong verdicts have

been priority concerns on the national judiciary’s recent agenda, and they will no doubt continue to have prid

e of place, and not just this year, as they are of great significance to society’s overall stability.

not left behind offline, and that everyone contributes to a web that drives equality, opportunity and creativity.”

  Berners-Lee launched a campaign called “Contract for the Web” at the Web Summit tech conference in Lisbon, Portugal, last year.

  More than 50 companies and organizations, including Facebook, Google and t

China hopes that the Ethiopia side can find out the cause of

f the accident as soon as possible and inform China of the investigation development in a timely manner, and appropriately handle the follow-up matters,” Lu said.

The ministry and Chinese embassy in Ethiopia will continue to follow relevant develop

ment and make all-out effort to proactively assist the families with follow-up issues, he added.

One Chinese national, who said many Chinese prefer the flight due to its convenience to business

travelers, said she was saddened and relieved at the same time. Cao Ran, who has been operating an insurance brokerage bus

iness in Nairobi for the last 10 months said she had changed her mind at the last minute and instead took a flight back on Frid

ay. “Just a coincidence,” said the owner of Jiang Tai Insurance Brokers, adding that it was a business trip.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed tweeted his condolences immediately. “The Office of the PM, on behalf of the Govern

ment and people of Ethiopia, would like to express its deepest condolences to the families of those that hav

e lost their loved ones on Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 on regular scheduled flight to Nairobi, Kenya this morning.”

draft plan of the proposed lab has been finished and sub

mitted for approval, he said. It’s expected to be located in Hefei, Anhui province.

Quantum information technology, he said, is key to applications including ultra-sec

ure communications, higher computing capability and more precise measurements.

Pan began putting together a quantum science research team at the Hefei-based university in 2001.

He has been widely hailed for leading China to the forefront of long-distance quantum comm

unications, and harnessing quantum laws to transmit information securely. But he said future deve

lopment required more collaboration among scientists and enterprises.

With the support of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Anhui province, the Innovation

Institute for Quantum Information and Quantum Science & Technology was founded in Hefei in 2017.

The institute has been functioning at the standard of a national laboratory to explore management experience, said Pan.
