Soon she was completing marathons, and before too long she was flying around the globe to participate in some of the world's best-known sporting events. This year, 150 Chinese - 106 men and 44 women - registered for the April 24 London Marathon, a race that attracts 38,000 runners annually and is one of the six top marathons in the world. His company, which specializes in organizing running training camps and tours, is among a number of enterprises serving the growing legion of Chinese runners.
Last year, just three Chinese people took part in the Jerusalem Marathon, including two who were local residents, according to Du. More than 700 Chinese also entered the Berlin Marathon, one of the top international events, in September, he adds. The Chinese presence at international marathons also is a point of pride as an emerging China makes its mark in many global spheres. That presence also means people from other nations have greater exposure to, and camaraderie with, sophisticated and health-conscious Chinese people. As for first impressions, "running is much better than (going abroad to) purchase goods", says Wang Xiaogang, 40, a Beijing running coach and freelance journalist, who has frequently taken part in overseas marathons.
Xie says she had one such positive experience after crossing the finish line at the Boston Marathon on a cold, rainy day in April last year. One of the most compelling stories at the April 18 Boston Marathon this year was that of Lauren Woods, the 34-year-old Boston police officer who was running the marathon in memory of Lu Lingzi, a 23-year-old Chinese student who was one of three people killed in the 2013 bombings at the marathon finish line. Woods was one of those who tended to Lu, a marathon fan and spectator at the event, as she lay dying. The new Chinese marathoners who can afford to go globe-trotting are mostly within the social status and age groups that have led China's modernization and economic rise in recent decades. Chinese runners at this year's London Marathon included 30 from the mainland led by Tian Tongsheng, 63, one of the founders of Runnar, a company that organizes trips and assists marathoners. Tian certainly breaks the traditional mold of aging in China, where the retirement age for men is 60.
The first group, which may have advanced academic degrees, comprises some 65 to 70 percent of runners registered with his company.
The second group, which makes up 30 to 35 percent, is also well-off, but many of them did not go to college, he says. Ninety percent of those who run outside China were born in the 1960s and '70s, putting them between the ages of 37 and 56, he adds. Oliver Wang, who is also CEO of Beijing-based Palace Travel and its US branch, which has runners as clients, too, describes the situation as part of a trend that started earlier in the West, in which the wealthy middle-aged started spending lots of money on fancy bicycles, for example, instead on sports cars.
Du, of ZX-Tour Co, says one of the reasons for the explosion in travel is that people who have run the relatively new marathons in China are looking for a taste of better-run races abroad, as well as higher athletic levels. But in addition to that, what could be cooler than posting a selfie as you cross the finish line in Paris, Boston or Berlin, or wrap yourself in the national flag like an Olympian? Li Xibei, 30, an information technology worker from Central China who lives in New York City, raised funds to provide cleaner air to families in his homeland by running the North Pole Marathon this month. Using Crowdrise, a crowdfunding website, he raised $6,030 - 18 percent more than his target sum - for the Blue Sky Lab campaign run by Friends of Nature, one of the oldest environmental NGOs in China.
Li and a female compatriot, Fan Beibei, were among about 50 runners from 20 countries who braved temperatures as low as -40 C to complete the 42-km event, which was postponed several times due to cracks in the ice. Li is also one of a small but growing group of Chinese who have completed marathons on every continent, including Antarctica. Despite the current enthusiasm, the Chinese have shown themselves to be somewhat fickle in terms of their motivation for traveling abroad. First, China's rising prosperity and its people's concern for health and fitness are unlikely to fade. Third, and perhaps most important, are the young runners who aspire to take on international marathons. The running bug bit Zhang Yiming, 20, a junior at Renmin University of China's School of International Relations in Beijing, in December 2014. She runs 8 kilometers two to three times a week, which she says helps her deal with stress and keep calm. Zhang says she plans to run two international marathons a year, with New York, Boston and Munich at the top of her wish list. At a historical study meeting of the ancient land and sea Silk Roads, the president told Communist Party of China Central Committee members, "The Belt and Road Initiative, though initiated by China, is not only about China. Xi proposed the initiative in 2013, envisioning a trade and infrastructure network that would connect Asia with Europe and Africa along the ancient land and sea routes. Analysts say the initiative covers at least 4.4 billion people in more than 60 countries, or 63 percent of the global population.
Xi stressed the function of the market in promoting the initiative as well as the government's role in overall coordination.
He said that Chinese companies must be law-abiding and responsible entities in foreign countries while pursuing economic returns. Li Guoqiang, deputy director of the Institute of Chinese Borderland Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told China Daily that the purpose of the study was to learn from the experiences and mistakes of the ancient Silk Road and to open leaders' minds to innovative ways to implement the initiative.
The president stressed that China cannot seek short-term successes and quick profits when promoting this initiative, said Li, who delivered a speech at the group study. What interested the president most was to take good consideration of relations between interests, enterprises and local and central governments, Li said. Zha Xiaogang, a researcher at the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies, said taking care of other countries' interests as well as China's is crucial now that an increasing number of foreign countries have decided to cooperate in the initiative because they have come to understand China's visions and policies. Zha said that Xi wants to balance the interests on three-levels: between China and the host country, between the different interest groups in the host country, and between China and other investors in the host country. Only by taking good care of all these interests can we make the initiative profitable and sustainable, Zha said.
Despite some setbacks in the past few years, Sino-Japanese relations are improving, though they are still fragile, the premier said. He also said Japan should appropriately manage sensitive elements that can substantially affect bilateral relations, and create a positive atmosphere to resume bilateral dialogues and the trilateral leaders' meeting of China, South Korea and Japan. Kishida said Japan is willing to show mutual respect, strengthen political trust and manage disputes. Kishida is making his first official visit to China, from Friday to Sunday, since becoming foreign minister more than three years ago. Earlier on Saturday, Foreign Minister Wang Yi held talks with Kishida, before the visitor met with State Councilor Yang Jiechi and the premier in the afternoon. Gao Hong, director of the Institute of Japanese Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said Japan's actions are the key to improving bilateral relations, as the country has created issues that hamper China's fundamental interests and has broken its promises for cooperation instead of confrontation, especially in maritime rights. Soon she was completing marathons, and before too long she was flying around the globe to participate in the some of the world's best-known sporting events. That's a 417 percent increase from the 29 Chinese entrants - 22 men and seven women - last year, organizers say. His company, which specializes in organizing training camps and tours, is among a number of enterprises serving the growing legion of Chinese runners.
As for first impressions, "running is much better than (going abroad to) have a baby or purchase goods", says Wang Xiaogang, 40, a Beijing running coach and freelance journalist, who has frequently taken part in overseas marathons.
Oliver Wang, who is also CEO of Beijing-based Palace Travel and its US branch, which has runners as clients, too, describes the situation as part of a trend that started earlier in the West, in which the wealthy middle-aged started spending lots of money on fancy bicycles, for example, instead of on sports cars.
Du says one of the reasons for the explosion in travel is that people who have run the relatively new marathons in China are looking for a taste of better-run races abroad, as well as higher athletic levels.
But in addition to that, what could be cooler than posting a selfie as you cross the finish line in Paris, Boston or Berlin, or wrapped yourself in the national flag like an Olympian? Li Xibei, 30, an information technology worker from Central China who lives in New York City, raised funds to provide cleaner air for families in his homeland by running the North Pole Marathon this month. Yet despite the current enthusiasm, the Chinese have shown themselves to be somewhat fickle in terms of their motivation for traveling abroad. Now, Ji Xiaoxiang and Yang Mohan, both 33 and graduates of Tongji University's Urban Planning School in Shanghai, have made that journey to the village.
The boutique hostel Da Le Zhi Ye, which is minimalist and comfortable, is located in Deqing county in Zhejiang province.
After spending several years designing urban developments, they say they were left disenchanted, as many projects did not become a reality. They eventually ended up in Biwu, a village in Deqing county in the eastern province of Zhejiang.
The men rented the old house and spent their savings transforming it into a boutique hostel, Da Le Zhi Ye, the name of which comes from an ancient book, The Classic of Mountains and Rivers. Ji had never lived in the countryside before but now prides himself on successfully integrating with the local community. The hostel features huge windows, which let in copious amounts of natural light, and a small cafe that serves a decent Americano. There is a serenity that permeates the place that can't be found in a metropolis, and when night falls only the sounds of a nearby stream can be heard.
Yang and Ji are among a small group of urban elites who have done the opposite of young people from the villages, who still think the only measure of success is to own an apartment and have a decent job in cities like Shanghai and Beijing. Ask any of the 274 million migrant workers in China about his or her reason for seeking work in the big cities and the most likely reason will be that farming, with its harsh conditions and meager income, is simply not worth it. In recent years, however, some people - mostly young and well-educated - have been going against the grain, heading from major cities to relatively remote regions, such as Deqing, to pursue their dreams.
Statistics from the Deqing government show the county has generated thousands of job opportunities in the transportation and retail sectors since it opened to tourism about eight years ago. Yu Wei, a Shanghai interior designer, and his wife decided to build their dream home in Deqing's Moganshan Mountains. Wang Zehao quit his job as a software engineer in Ningbo on the east coast and returned to his hometown in Deqing about four years ago. Marathon running, which in China includes many health-conscious, well-educated participants, is an important source of sportswear sales.
Chinese sportswear brand Li-Ning - among the companies reinvigorated by China's passion for running and other sports - snapped three years of annual losses to swing back into profit in 2015, according to a recent Channel NewsAsia report. Nike's China earnings rose 43 percent in the quarter ending in February, with footwear growing fastest at 33 percent, the company reported. German sportswear maker Adidas Group was No 2 with a 16 percent share in 2015, up from 15 percent in 2014.
Chinese brand Anta China Co Ltd also recorded strong growth to 9.9 percent, up from 9 percent in 2014, making it the third-largest player in the nation's sportswear industry. Performance footwear, perhaps the most important equipment in marathons, is predicted to continue as sales leader, Euromonitor says.
The study found that 70 percent of those surveyed said they are more likely to buy the products of companies that sponsor races.
When he arrived, on April 11, he says he discovered his fellow guests at the hotel were almost entirely Chinese. The next day, he rose at 6 am and took a shuttle bus to the 60,000-seat Kim Il-sung Stadium to join more than 500 international runners at the starting line. The route through downtown Pyongyang passes some major landmarks, including Kim Il-sung University and the city's Arch of Triumph. He says there were no security checks at the starting line or portable toilets, and that the rules for runners' attire were unusual. In the end, Hu finished outside 3 hours 52 minutes, almost 16 minutes slower than his personal best but eight ahead of the event's closing mark, a relatively tough task for many amateur runners. Hu, who works for a media company in Beijing, says his lasting impression is of the local spectators.
When political scientist Fang Ning decided to compete in a marathon during a sabbatical six years ago, most Chinese still considered the sport a novel concept, with its challenges of endurance and mental stamina. But the director of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences' Institute of Political Science - the country's leading think tank - isn't taking part only to sharpen his perseverance and experience, but also for the joy of reaching milestones. He says he sees something more in the large numbers of Chinese participating both in the races staged by many cities in China and those who travel to Boston, London and other global cities to run. Fang was among a group of Chinese scholars in London to introduce English-language versions of their books about understanding China, covering topics such as political and economic systems, social welfare, energy and the environment.
Fang says the people's increasing passion to challenge their limits is just part of the process, which he predicts will speed up when China reaches its goal of doubling its per capita income to about $12,000 by 2020. Fang says the growth of what he calls "individual choices" to satisfy the demands of the people will serve to maintain social stability.
When the 42-year-old set a goal of running marathons on all seven continents in two years, he started out with one of the most challenging around.
The founder and chairman of Hudongbaike, one of China's largest internet companies, took on the Antarctic Ice Marathon last year.


Pan, one of a limited number of Chinese to run a marathon in Antarctica, says the race - and long-distance running in general - holds many analogies and lessons pertinent to life.
To become one of the 55 people from 22 countries who participated in the 11th Antarctic Ice Marathon in November, Pan had to make a 43-hour trip of nearly 25,000 kilometers from Beijing to Dallas, then to Santiago and Punta Arenas in Chile, and then to Union Glacier on the 80th parallel south, a common jumping-off point for polar trips.
Pan says he recalls Ngan warning them that, with temperatures reaching as low as -30 C, they had to guard against heat loss.
Still, everyone completed their race, which included 47 runners in the full 42.195 km marathon and eight in the half-marathon. Pan says it even helps him in his business, which was launched in 2005 and includes the world's largest Chinese encyclopedia.
He says another benefit to running marathons is the people he meets, all of whom are driven. He says it's true that Chinese participation in international marathons is evidence of the country's economic progress, with the number of wealthy and middle-class Chinese rising quickly. However, Pan says he sees running as a personal journey, pure and simple, that has helped him comprehend things he had not understood before. With the running craze growing among health-conscious urban Chinese, fitness experts and trainers are warning amateurs to prepare before they strap on their running shoes to avoid health problems.
Runners hit by sudden illness, and even death, during long-distance events continue to make the news periodically, raising concerns over participants skipping necessary training and health examinations.
Despite growth of the sport, awareness of many Chinese amateurs lags about the imperative of using healthy running techniques while building up gradually to longer distances. Wang says any runner who plans to participate in a full marathon, which is just over 42 kilometers, needs to build up endurance and stamina on a weekly basis, following strict exercise and diet routines to improve distance and pace gradually. Huang Tao, a sports therapist from Peking University Third Hospital, says unprepared runners are more likely to be hit by problems resulting from cardiovascular disease and joint injuries when they increase their pace and intensity. Meanwhile, competitive running requires proper training in good technique, including how to land with each step, how to bend the knees and how to keep your body straight, which runners should learn from professional trainers, says Sun Yingjie, a retired world champion long-distance runner. China and Russia sent strong signals to the United States on Friday, urging it not to deploy a new anti-missile system in the Republic of Korea.
The US and ROK began talks on possible deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system after the Democratic People's Republic of Korea conducted its fourth nuclear test in January.
However, China firmly opposes the move, with analysts saying the system could be used to monitor Beijing's missile launches as far inland as Xi'an in the northwest of the country.
Lavrov said countries involved "shouldn't use Pyongyang's acts as a pretext to increase their military presence on the Korean Peninsula. Wang said the possible deployment only "adds fuel to the fire of an already tense situation and even possibly wrecks the regional strategic balance". Last week, Sung Kim, the US special representative for DPRK policy, said China and Russia do not need to be concerned about THAAD. He made the comments after "productive discussions" in Beijing with Wu Dawei, China's special representative on Korean peninsula affairs. Zuo Xiying, an international studies specialist at Renmin University of China's National Academy of Development and Strategy, denounced Kim's comments. Zuo said THAAD is called a "defense system" but its capacity passes way beyond the need to safeguard against missile threats from Pyongyang and its radar could be used to collect surveillance data far inland in both China and Russia. Lavrov also said on Friday that one of his most important tasks is to prepare for Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to Beijing in June. ForeignMinisterWang Yi (right) points the way to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov after a news conference at the Foreign Ministry in Beijing on Friday. Three years ago, when Liu Jingjing posted on Sina Weibo, China's version of Twitter, a white cartoon image of a chubby figure with a tuft of grass on its head, it is unlikely she imagined just how popular it would become.
Liu, 21, a second-year student at an art college in Shanxi province, works for a Beijing company, 12 Buildings, as a part-time cartoonist. WeChat users have used Liu's previous series of emoticons of the same cartoon image with different facial expressions and body gestures more than 5 billion times in four months. Most of the cartoonists who design emoji are not paid for their use, but many hope that the financial rewards will begin to flow after their works gain exposure and they can start selling them to individual users in other forms such as books and to companies that use their cartoon images for marketing. Those who are passionate about emoji range from professional artists to part-time designers to amateur doodlers, all riding a wave of popularity that has washed over China's social networks and instant messaging platforms for several years. WeChat's department responsible for emoji says it has the works of 3,000 artists on file, and emoticons are now so commonly used that even the less popular ones can become widely known very quickly. The way in which 12 Buildings' cartoonists work is similar to that practiced in Japan's cartoon industry. He created a human-like white cat that behaves in a mean but comic way and after turning it into an emoji, it has received wide recognition. To express crying there is a while cat that can laugh even as it sheds tears, cries as it lies in a pool of tears, cries while clapping its hands and cries as it covers its face with its paws. The emoji of his white cat has attracted many instant messaging app users in less than a year. Each of his series of white cat emojis has been targeted at different users, he says, for the romantically inclined, for those on diets and for those wanting to extend thanks to anyone giving them money in digital red envelopes. Those who use his emoticons predominantly range from those in their teens to the middle-aged. Shi Donglin, originator of Freezing Gal, a cartoon image she created in college, says using emojis helps bring light relief at embarrassing moments during communication. Her cartoon figure, with dark skin and a ponytail, is based on her experience in college, she says, and is popular among college students.
Unlike traditional cartoonists who generally have to create an image first, then sell comic stories to magazines or publishing houses and finally go online to win wider acceptance, Shi went straight to Weibo and was surprised at how much attention it gained in such a short time that she turned it into an emoji for messaging apps such as QQ and WeChat, thus giving it much wider currency. Apart from continuing to produce more emojis based on Freezing Gal, she has started to draw picture books to build on the character's image.
Three million copies of Xu's picture books featuring Ali, which he created in high school, have been sold since 2009. His emoji of the red fox was one of the first cartoon images launched on QQ in 2012 and WeChat in 2015. Wang of 12 Buildings says that although it is hard in an era of short attention spans to give longevity to cartoon characters, Internet exposure creates chances for young cartoonists to work with big brands that earlier would never have employed domestic cartoonists to design images for them. The chubby white creature with a tuft of grass on its head has been drafted to work with the US multinational consumer goods company Procter & Gamble, and Freezing Gal is now being used in advertising the Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi, popular with students. The United States is not qualified to make "carping comments on China" as it has not signed on to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, the Foreign Ministry said on Friday. The comment came as top diplomats from China and Russia urged countries outside the South China Sea region not to stir up tension there. On Thursday, US Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken told a House of Representatives hearing that China "can't have it both ways," by being a party to the convention but rejecting its provisions, including "the binding nature of any arbitration decision", Reuters reported. Blinken was challenging China's rejection of arbitration by a tribunal at the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague, which was set up in 2014 following a unilateral request by the Philippines.
Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a regular news conference on Friday that the US has not signed on to the convention.
Instead, Washington had introduced its so-called Freedom of Navigation Program in 1979 ahead of the convention's introduction in 1982, Hua said. Hua also said that it is "a secret known to all" that the US subscribes to international law when it is favorable, and ignores the law when it is not.
She said more than 30 countries, in addition to China, have filed declarations in accordance with the convention to exclude disputes about maritime delimitation from compulsory arbitration and other compulsory dispute settlement procedures. Ruan Zongze, vice-president of the China Institute of International Studies, said that behind the current maritime tension lies the "zero-sum thinking" and US alignment with allies that seek greater engagement in the South China Sea issue.
Meanwhile, China and Russia have "achieved important consensus on the South China Sea issue", according to a release by the Chinese Foreign Ministry on Friday. They agreed that the disputes in the South China Sea "should be peacefully resolved on the basis of historical facts and international law, and through consultation and negotiation by countries directly concerned", the release said.
The novel, based on the county annals of Chen's hometown White Deer Plain in Shaanxi, tells of historical changes to the land over 50 years from the end of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).
Since it was first published, it has set a record as a contemporary literary work, with about 2 million copies sold in China, according to People's Literature Publishing House. In 2010, the novel was adapted into a film of the same name directed by Wang Quan'an and starring Zhang Fengyi, Zhang Yuqi and Duan Yihong. The book was also listed in a must-read selection by the Ministry of Education for university students. In 1979, Chen became a member of the Chinese Writers Association and served as the association's vice-chairman between 2001 and 2006. Feng Jicai, another highly accomplished writer, said in a message of condolence: "Chen scaled the highest peak of Chinese contemporary literature. Chen Xiaoming, professor of Chinese language and literature at Peking University, describes White Deer Plain as "integrated, broad, simple, solid and vigorous", regarding it as "a masterpiece that closely combines Chinese cultural tradition and the features of regional culture in northeastern China". Chang Zhenjia, 72, an editor at People's Literature Publishing House for more than 30 years, read the first edition of White Deer Plain and published the first review of the novel. Xu Han has published three picture books since 2009 about Ali, a little red fox wearing shorts. The red fox has millions of fans in China, mostly female, apparently drawn by the warm, fairytale-like stories of Ali and his animal friends.
Xu's fourth book, Carrousel Garden, was published in March, and he says a full-feature movie starring Ali will be released next year. The path to fame of Xu with his red fox is one typical for a successful cartoonist in China: from picture book to short film to emoticons and emoji online or via instant messaging apps to a Taobao shop and physical shops across the country that sell Ali-the-fox merchandise, and finally to the big screen.
It is common for cartoonists to produce characters that become widely known quickly online, but many fizzle out within a year or two. In 2009, Xu set up Beijing Dream Castle Culture Company with a partner and published the picture book Ali's Dream Castle.
It was not until Ali became the first emoji of cartoon images on WeChat last year that his popularity began to cover all age groups, Xu says. During the Spring Festival in February, downloads of emoticons of the red fox celebrating the traditional festival topped the list of emojis sent by users to wish their friends or relatives a happy New Year. In making a film, telling a good story is the big challenge, he says, which takes Xu to a story of his own: how his red fox came about. In the picture book that came out in March he recounts tales of Ali confronting characters from Western fairy tales such as the Little Prince, Pinocchio and the Ugly Duckling. China has never had an established cartoonist or cartoon image that has been recognised outside the country, and Xu says he hopes Ali will go some way to rectifying that. But the animation and cartoon industry in China lags behind its counterparts in the West and in Japan, which has produced many comic books that have influenced countless Chinese cartoonists and aficionados of comics, he says.
Even if many Chinese cartoonists can gain exposure for their works through the internet and the mobile web, he says, building up an image for a cartoon character is difficult.
Carlson Hotels has 1,400 properties under operation and development in 115 countries and territories.
Company officials declined to provide terms of the deal that was announced on Wednesday, but Bloomberg News, citing unnamed sources, reported it could be worth $2 billion. The family-owned Carlson Hotel Group said HNA's tourism and hospitality arm, HNA Tourism Group, is also acquiring its 51.3 percent majority stake in the Rezidor Hotel Group AB, Carlson's Brussels-based master licensee for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and may begin a takeover offer for all of Rezidor, the companies said. Carlson, founded by Curt Nelson in 1938, said it chose HNA Tourism over other suitors because the breadth of HNA's operations and its Asia ties made it the best fit.
Berg will remain as chief of the company, which will keep its headquarters in the Minneapolis suburb of Minnetonka. HNA Hospitality Group chairman and CEO Bai Haibo said in a statement the acquisition aimed to "establish our presence in the US market and expand our footprint in hospitality internationally".
In 2015, HNA acquired a 15 percent stake in the Red Lion Hotels Corp, an owner of mid-scale and full-service US hotels, for an undisclosed sum.
Chinese tourists spent $215 billion outside of the Chinese mainland in 2015, according to the World Travel & Tourism Council, 53 percent increase over the $140 billion in 2014. The HNA-Carlson deal comes weeks after Anbang Insurance Group Co bid $14 billion for US-based Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc, but it walked away from the deal, enabling Marriott International Inc to go ahead with a takeover. In February, HNA also was a bidder for London City Airport, but lost to a group led by Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan Board. Pollsters GlobeScan questioned more than 20,000 people in 18 countries and found that for the first time in 15 years of tracking more than half (51 percent) see themselves more as citizens of the world than of their own country, with 43 percent identifying nationally.
The trend is driven by strong rises in emerging economies over the past year, the survey found, including China (71 percent, up 14 points from 2015), India (67 percent up 13 points), Peru (70 percent, up 27 points) and Nigeria (73 percent, up 13 points).
By contrast, the trend in the wealthier nations appears to have been heading the other way since the financial crash of 2008, dropping to below 40 percent on average in 2011 and climbing to 42 percent this year.
In the US, 43 percent of respondents saw themselves more as a global citizen rather than a US citizen. Without defining a "global citizen", "we measured how far people consider themselves integrated into world society", Lionel Bellier, the associate director of Globescan who authored the report, told The Christian Science Monitor.
One of the challenges of polling attitudes on identity is that the very term "global citizenship" is a difficult concept to define, and the pollsters left it up to those taking part to interpret it for themselves.
President Xi Jinping, speaking on the South China Sea issue on Thursday, said China upholds the peaceful resolution of disputes through friendly consultation and negotiation with the countries directly involved. The president said that for some time developments in the South China Sea have attracted extensive attention. China "unswervingly safeguards its own sovereignty and relevant rights and interests in the South China Sea," the president said.
Xi made the remarks in Beijing as he addressed the fifth foreign ministers' meeting of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence-Building Measures in Asia. Observers said Xi's remarks come at a time when the US is worsening the situation in the South China Sea by boosting its military presence there, and after the US and the Philippines embarked on joint military drills recently.
Su Xiaohui, a researcher of international strategies at the China Institute of International Studies, said Xi's remarks on the South China Sea illustrate two of China's key strategic goals - championing State sovereignty and safeguarding regional stability.
Xi is also sending a message that "China does not accept any attempt to ruin the big picture", and such attempts include the international arbitration sought unilaterally by the Philippines against China, Su said.
The "countries outside the region" mentioned by Xi include the US, which is partly responsible for tension in the South China Sea, Su added. Zhang Junshe, a senior researcher at the PLA Naval Military Studies Research Institute, said that the US has recently "grouped" with countries such as the Philippines to "muddy the waters" by staging joint military drills in the South China Sea. In Singapore on Thursday, China and countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations agreed to "properly control and manage differences", according to a Foreign Ministry release. The consensus was made as Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs Liu Zhenmin and Singapore's Permanent Secretary for Foreign Affairs Chee Wee Kiong co-chaired the 22nd China-ASEAN Senior Officials' Consultation. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the launch of dialogue relations between China and ASEAN. All parties agreed that China and ASEAN countries should use the anniversary as an opportunity to "strengthen strategic communication, deepen mutually beneficial cooperation, and properly control and manage differences", the release said.
China will never allow the Korean Peninsula to have war or chaos, because it will be no good for anyone. As a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, China implements the relevant council resolutions in an all-out and integral manner.
China proactively participates in the Istanbul Process on Afghanistan, supports the country's peaceful reconstruction, and supports the inclusive political resolution process under the guideline of "led by Afghan people, owned by Afghan people".
China stands for and will continue to help promote a peaceful settlement of the Syrian issue and the Palestine-Israel issue through political negotiation.
China has played a constructive role in reaching the comprehensive agreement on the Iran nuclear issue and will continue to press ahead with the implementation through joint efforts with all sides.

It means that almost half the Chinese population are using Liu's emoticons while messaging their friends. It seems that designing emoji of cartoon images has become a must-do for some cartoonists who want to gain wide public recognition in China. All were born in the Internet era, so, Wang says, "they're very sensitive to new things online.
The cartoonist designs the image and others help manage it, so they can update stories or bring new series of emojis online very quickly.

Before the cat was created, he drew cartoon images of a human-like bear, a man with a chicken head and a little boy for a children's book. Three series of the cat emojis have been downloaded a total of about 200 million times since they were launched in August, and Zhong now has about 500,000 followers on Weibo. The obsession of Chinese with emoji has its roots in the kawaii (cute) and otaku (those who are social outcasts because of their obsession with something, often comics) cultures of Japan, he says.

Prior to this year's London event, he had completed 73 marathons, including 16 last year, half of which were international races.

The activities in which the children will participate are designed to develop motor skills, promote physical fitness and create self-confidence as well as develop listening skills.
