ANKARA, Dec. 21 (Xinhua) -- Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday blasted U.S. President Donald Trump who threatened to cut aid to countries that vote against Washington at the UN General Assembly on Jerusalem.

"Mr. Trump, you cannot buy Turkey's democratic will with your dollars Nike Air Max 2017 Sale ," Erdogan said at an awards ceremony in Ankara.

"I am calling on the whole world: Do not sell your struggle for democracy for a few dollars," he added.

"I hope that the U.S. will not get the result it expects today and the world will give the U.S. a very good lesson," he said, referring to the UN meeting set to be held on Thursday.

Ahead of the UN voting, Trump threatened to cut aid to countries that would vote against his Jerusalem decision.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said she would be "taking names" of those voting against Washington at the meeting.

Since the U.S. recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital early in the month Nike Air Max 2018 Sale , Turkish leaders have been harshly criticizing the controversial move.

Last week, Turkey hosted a summit of Muslim leaders, which issued a communique to recognize East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine.

SHENZHEN, China, March 9 (Xinhua) -- Chinese paddler Ma Long, who ranked 1st in the world, pulled out from the team trials for the World Table Tennis Championships, scheduled to be held in Dusseldorf, Germany in May, due to his waist injury here on Thursday.

CHINA said yesterday that North Korean companies operating in the country will have to shut down by January as Beijing applies UN sanctions imposed following Pyongyang’s sixth nuclear test.

China’s commerce ministry said the companies, including joint ventures with Chinese firms, have 120 days to close from the date the United Nations resolution was adopted on September 11.

The sanctions spare Nike Air Max 90 Sale , on a case by case basis, entities involved in non-commercial activities or public utility infrastructure projects that do not generate profits.

North Korean companies operate restaurants and other ventures in China, helping provide the country with foreign currency. North Korean laborers work in Chinese factories and other businesses.

The announcement comes days after China confirmed that it will apply another major part of the sanctions — a limit on exports of refined petroleum products to North Korea from Sunday and a ban on textiles from its neighbor.

In August, China banned North Korean firms and individuals from establishing new companies in its territory following a separate set of sanctions.

China also has banned imports of North Korean coal, iron and lead ore Nike Air Max Sale , and seafood since early September.

Yesterday, the Ministry of Commerce defended its recent imports of North Korean coal, saying they were permitted by UN sanctions.

Ministry spokesman Gao Feng said imports that were reported in August trade data were allowed by a “grace period” for goods that arrived before the UN ban took effect. The imports are “in line with the resolution,” Gao said.

Also yesterday, China appealed for dialogue to defuse the increasingly acrimonious dispute between US President Donald Trump’s government and North Korea.

“The Korean Peninsula nuclear issue is related to regional peace and stability Air Max 97 Sale ,” foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said. “Breaking the deadlock requires all relevant parties to show their sincerity.”

“We are opposed to any war on the Korean Peninsula, and the international community will never allow a war plunge people into an abyss of misery,” Lu said.

“Sanctions and the promoting of talks are both the requirements of the UN Security Council. We should not overemphasize one aspect while ignoring the other,” Lu said.

On July 4, China and Russia issued a joint statement on the Korean Peninsula issue.

The two countries put forward a roadmap on the basis of Russia’s step-by-step approach Air Max 2017 Sale , and China’s dual track approach and suspension for suspension initiative.

Lu said the joint initiative took the concerns of all relevant parties into account and is worthy of consideration.
