HELSINKI Günstig Herren Nike Air Max 97 OG GS Blau , April 4 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived here Tuesday for a state visit to Finland aimed at advancing bilateral ties, increasing political mutual trust and expanding substantial cooperation.
It is the first visit by a Chinese head of state to this Nordic country in 22 years.
The host country dispatched two fighter jets to escort Xi's plane after it entered Finland's airspace.
In a written speech delivered at the airport upon arrival, President Xi first extended congratulations to the Finnish government and people as this year marks the centenary of Finland's independence.
"Since China and Finland established diplomatic ties 67 years ago, our relationship has maintained a steady and sound development no matter how the international landscape changes," Xi said.
"Our relationship has become a model of friendly co-existence and mutually-beneficial cooperation between countries that are different in population and size, history and culture Billig Herren Nike Air Max 97 Gold Gelb Schwarz , social system and development level," he noted.
Xi said he looks forward to having in-depth exchanges of views with Finnish leaders on the China-Finland relationship and other issues of mutual concern, thus charting the course for the future development of the bilateral relations.
"I believe that with concerted efforts of both sides, my visit will achieve a complete success," he added.
During his stay in Helsinki, Xi will hold talks with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto Kaufen Herren Nike Air Max 97 Silber Weiß Rot , and meet with Prime Minister Juha Sipila and Speaker of the Finnish Parliament Maria Lohela.
China and Finland have enjoyed long-term friendship and cooperation.
Finland was one of the first Western countries to establish diplomatic ties with the People's Republic of China, and the first Western nation to sign an intergovernmental trade agreement with China.
Currently, Finland is China's third largest trading partner in the Nordic region, while China has been Finland's biggest trading partner in Asia for 14 years.
The two countries upgraded their ties to a future-oriented new-type cooperative partnership in 2013, when Niinisto paid a state visit to China.
The two sides have cooperated in areas such as high technology, clean energy Billig Herren Nike Air Max 97 Schwarz , innovation and Arctic research, and further cooperation on winter sports is expected as China will host the 2022 Winter Olympic Games.
Xi's visit to Finland is his first trip to a European Union member state this year, and also his first visit to the Nordic region as president.
"The visit will strengthen bilateral ties, promote cooperation between China and Northern Europe, and foster China-Europe partnerships for peace, growth Bestellen Herren Nike Air Max 97 OG GS Weiß , reform and civilization," Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Wang Chao told reporters ahead of Xi's trip.
After Finland, the Chinese president will travel to Florida, the United States, for a meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday and Friday.
That will be the first meeting between Xi and Trump as the heads of state of the two biggest economies in the world.
WASHINGTON, June 2 (Xinhua) -- The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) said U.S. President Donald Trump has misused its climate research to justify his decision of withdrawing the United States from the Paris Agreement on climate change.
"Even if the Paris Agreement were implemented in full Sale Herren Damen Nike Air Max 97 Summit White , with total compliance from all nations, it is estimated it would only produce a two-tenths of one degree -- think of that, this much -- Celsius reduction in global temperature by the year 2100," Trump said Thursday during his announcement Thursday. "Tiny, tiny amount."
According to an MIT statement released Thursday on its website, Trump was referring to an analysis from the university's Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change Kaufen Herren Nike Air Max 97 Ultra Triple Black , but his interpretation was "misleading."
"The 0.2 degree-figure used in the talking point reflects the incremental impact of the Paris Agreement compared with the earlier Copenhagen agreement," the statement said.
"If you instead compare the impact of the Paris Agreement to no climate policy, then the temperature reduction is much larger, on the order of one degree Celsius ... by 2100," it continued. "This would be a significant reduction in the global temperature rise, though much more is needed if the world is to achieve its goal of limiting warming to two degrees Celsius or less."
In addition Nike Air Max 97 OG UNDFTD Undefeated Weiß Rot Billig , the MIT said that its analysis accounts only for countries' pledges under the Paris Agreement, assuming no further strengthening of the commitments in years after 2030.
"The Paris Agreement is a milestone of the ongoing UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, which is committed to ongoing annual meetings to regularly revisit and ratchet up nations' climate goals, making them more ambitious over time," it said.
"The relevant MIT researchers believe that the Paris Agreement is an unprecedented and vital effort by nearly 200 countries to respond to the urgent threat of global climate change."
By leaving the Paris Agreement, Trump fulfilled his campaign promise Nike Air Max 97 OG UNDFTD Undefeated Schwarz Rot Kaufen , but has aroused criticism both at home and abroad.
