The Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region will be present at Xi’an Silk Road International Tourism Expo (XSRITE) 2020 as a guest of honor, the organizing committee of the expo revealed on January 10, 2020.

Inner Mongolia features a broad span from east to west, immense grassland, historic sites in deserts, lakes, forests and folk customs. The vast grassland and the splendid scenery in the Greater Khingan Range have absorbed numerous visitors from home and abroad; Shaanxi, as the starting point of the Silk Road and the transportation hub of China, abounds with profound Silk Road culture and tourism resources. By complementing each other’s advantages, both cities aim to expand a new international tourism market via the expo and thus promote the branding of the “Silk Road Tourism” of China.

XSRITE 2020 will take place at Xi’an Qujiang International Conference & Exhibition Center from March 27 to 29. It is expected to cover an area of 40,000m2, involve over 50 countries and regions, more than 1,000 exhibitors and more than 100,000 visitors. The expo is jointly sponsored by the Departments of Culture and Tourism of Shaanxi, Gansu, Qinghai, Ningxia and Xinjiang Provinces and undertaken by West Shaanxi International Exhibition Co., Ltd.
XSRITE aims to realize the strategic conception of co-building the Silk Road Economic Belt and construct a Silk Road custom tourism corridor starting from Xi’an. The expo is intended to be a platform for the cultural exchange and integration between Eastern and Western countries, tourism economic prosperity on the Silk Road and for regional tourism cooperation. It will facilitate the establishment of a new open and inclusive system along the Silk Road, the innovation of a new international cooperation model for cultural tourism and the integration and development of new regional value, thus supporting China to become a world tourism power. Based on the principle of “inviting good buyers and selling quality tourism products”, the organizing committee will keep improving the exhibition mechanism, innovating activity forms and enriching supporting content, so as to forge an international first-rate cultural tourism expo.

The expo will provide citizens with an all-round feast combining domestic and foreign-style tourism, accommodation, food, traditional culture and art activities.

Jul 9, 2020

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin engineered a surprise shakeup of Russia's leadership Wednesday, proposing changes to the constitution that could keep him in power well past the end of his term in 2024.

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Jul 9, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Jul 9, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Jul 9, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns. Relatively...
