Video PlayerClose SYDNEY, Dec. 10 (Xinhua) -- Western Australia's (WA) niche sea cucumber industry has being recognized for it's environmental sustainability, officials said on Tuesday, allowing beche-de-mer lovers across Asia to chow down with a clear conscience. The industry's products can now carry the blue eco label, awarded by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) -- the world's leading science-based standard and eco-labelling program for wild capture fisheries. WA sea cucumbers are harvested by hand, usually through diving or wading, making the impact on the environment and other wildlife low.

A long analysis I wrote about "the Uygur issue" earlier this year will be soon published as a book. For some time now, I have been warning that the West, the United States in particular, is helping radicalize the Uygurs both in and outside China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region. I have also mapped the movement of the Uygur radicals through countries in Southeast Asia and the Middle East, from where they are injected into brutal war zones such as Idlib in Syria. I have worked with Syrian commanders in the Idlib area, and spoke at length with the internally displaced Syrian people－victims of brutal terrorist attacks, and got my information from them. The Uygur people have their own religious beliefs and culture, and most of them are very decent people. The "problem" is that the Xinjiang capital of Urumqi is located on the main arm of the Belt and Road Initiative, an optimistic global project aimed at connecting billions of people along the route. The Belt and Road projects aim … [Read more...] about Who gives US the right to lecture China about rights?
