Russia, China ‘to counter protectionism’

“The world and global economy are coming up against new forms of protectionism today with different kinds of barriers, which are increasing,” Putin said during a Wednesday plenary session at the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) in Russia’s Far Eastern city of Vladivostok, where Xi and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe were also in attendance. “Basic principles of trade — competition and mutual economic benefit — are depreciated and unfortunately undermined; they’re becoming hostages of ideological and fleeting political situations. In that, we see a serious challenge for all of the global economy, especially for the dynamically-growing Asia-Pacific and its leadership,” the Russian president said. The remarks were clearly aimed at the US administration, which has enforced unusually high tariffs against both Russia and China. The Chinese president echoed Putin’s remarks and appeared committed to seeking closer ties with Moscow in remarks made earlier during the forum, on Tuesday. “Together with our Russian colleagues, we will increase fruitful cooperation in international affairs and intensify coordination . . . to oppose the policy of unilateral actions and trade protectionism,” President Xi said. During the Wednesday session, Xi further emphasized, “There are deep and complex changes underway in the international situation, the politics of force, unilateral approaches, and protectionism are rearing their head.” Russia, China ‘to use national currencies in bilateral trade more actively’ President Putin, meanwhile, said that Russia and China were looking to use national currencies in their transactions, doing away with the dollar. “The Russian and Chinese sides have confirmed the interest in more active use of national currencies in bilateral transactions. This will increase the stability of banking services for export-import amid continuing risks in global markets,” he said. The Russian president further said that Moscow and its economic partners in the East had to work to keep trade free from barriers. The Trump administration’s trade war against Russia and China, as well as US sanctions on Moscow, appear to have moved Beijing and Moscow closer to each other.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: Paypal: **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
