the Mediterranean that is also a EU member state, has indicated it, too, could join the BRI. The news channel quoted Maltes
e Finance Minister Edward Scicluna as saying that “certain prejudices” should not come in the way of good business.
I am not sure if Marquis, or his boss, US National Security Advisor John Bolton, plan to lecture, warn or th

Taylor said the smell of bodies and livestock was palpable.Hundreds of others were also attempting to make the congested seven-ho
ur walk from the village of Lamego — about 90 kilometers (56 miles) inland from Beira — to Nhamatanda, on higher ground. In places whe

”I’m 6 foot 2 inches (187 centimeters), but the force of water at knee level w

On the road out of Beira, he said “the entire area, as far as I could see, was one lake of flood
water,” adding that groups of up to 10 people had climbed eucalyptus, cashew and mango trees waiting to be rescued.

oms), who became a senior official to serve the country,” Shen said. “What comes second is to be like Du Fu (a reno
wned poet in Tang Dynasty known for his patriotism), who always puts the country’s and the people’s interests first.”
“Over the past 26 years, no one from the office has ever asked about me,” Shen told Red
