BEIJING, Jan. 15 (Xinhua) — An article by President Xi Jinping on building a contingent of high-quality officials who are loyal, clean and have a strong sense of responsibility, will be carried by the second issue of Qiushi Journal, to be published on Wednesday.

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, says in the article that to unite and lead people to reach the two centenary goals and realize the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation, the Party’s organizational line in the new era must be comprehensively implemented.

The standard of both integrity and ability must be upheld, and the appointment of officials should be fair, reads the article carried by Qiushi Journal, the flagship magazine of the CPC Central Committee.

In the article, Xi also asks for broader vision in appointing officials and more efforts to inspire officials’ enthusiasm in their work.

India university official urges students to kill instead of complaining

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – A top official at a Indian state-run university urged his students to “murder” fellow students if confronted instead of complaining to him, amid a wave of violence being reported from across the state where the school is based.

“If you’re a student of this University, never come crying to me,” said Raja Ram Yadav, vice-chancellor of Purvanchal University, in a speech, video from Reuters partner ANI showed.

Adding: “If you ever get into a fight, beat them, if possible murder them, we’ll take care of it later.”

Yadav was speaking on Friday at a college event in Ghazipur in Uttar Pradesh, India’s most populous state. In the same city a police officer was stoned to death during violent protests on Saturday, though there is no indication of a link with Yadav’s remarks.

Uttar Pradesh is notorious for communal tensions and crime, and has been plagued by incidents of mob violence in recent weeks.

A senior police officer and another man were killed in another incident of violence earlier this month after local residents protested because they say they had seen some people slaughtering a cow, an animal sacred in Hindu culture. That was in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr district.

China’s hacking against U.S. on the rise – U.S. intelligence official

NEW YORK (Reuters) – A senior U.S. intelligence official said on Tuesday that Chinese cyber activity in the United States had risen in recent months, targeting critical infrastructure in what may be attempts to lay the groundwork for future disruptive attacks.

“You worry they are prepositioning against critical infrastructure and trying to be able to do the types of disruptive operations that would be the most concern,” National Security Agency official Rob Joyce said at a Wall Street Journal cybersecurity conference.

Joyce, a former White House cyber adviser for President Donald Trump, did not elaborate. A spokeswoman for the NSA said Joyce was referring to digital attacks against the U.S. energy, financial, transportation and healthcare sectors.

The comments are notable because U.S. complaints about Chinese hacking have to date focussed on espionage and intellectual property theft, not efforts to disrupt critical infrastructure.

China has repeatedly denied U.S. allegations it conducts cyber attacks.

Joyce’s remarks coincide with U.S. prosecutors preparing to unveil as early as this week a new round of criminal hacking charges against Chinese nationals. They are expected to charge that Chinese hackers were involved in a cyber espionage operation known as “Cloudhopper” targeting technology service providers and their customers, according to people familiar with the matter.

The U.S. Congress is looking into the allegations of increased Chinese hacking activity.

Senior officials from the Department of Homeland Security and Justice Department are scheduled to testify Wednesday morning at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on “China’s Non-Traditional Espionage Against the United States: The Threat and Potential Policy Responses.”

BEIJING, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) — Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with Hun Many, president of the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia on Thursday, pledging to strengthen exchanges and cooperation on youth.

Wang spoke highly of the friendship between China and Cambodia over the past six decades since the establishment of diplomatic ties.

Noting that China supports Cambodia in safeguarding national sovereignty and independence, and choosing the development path suited to itself, Wang expressed China’s appreciation for Cambodia’s support on issues concerning China’s core interests.

Wang also said he hoped young people from both countries would continue the China-Cambodia friendship.

“As the young generation of Cambodia, we will continue the Cambodian-Chinese friendship and strengthen the exchange and cooperation between the two countries’ youths,” Hun Many said.
