    PHNOM PENH, Feb. 16 (Xinhua) -- As Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen and other ASEAN leaders are going to have a meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama, analysts in Cambodia said the summit will give an opportunity to Cambodia to improve ties with the world's largest economy.

    Mey Kalyan, senior adviser of the Supreme National Economic Council, said the summit is very important for U.S.-ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) relations, and it is extremely significant for Cambodia as its ties with the U.S. have always been rather bumpy.

    "Now, there are good signs that this relation could be improved as evidenced by the visit of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to Cambodia recently air jordan 13 retro for sale ," he told Xinhua. "Like other countries in the world, Cambodia needs more friends for its security and development."

    He said that as a poor country, Cambodia needs security, official development assistance, investment, trade, technology transfer air jordan 13 for sale , and human resources development, and all of which the U.S. has.

    "For Cambodia, we want to see the normalization and improvement of relation with the U.S.," he said.

    Joseph Matthews, director of the Phnom Penh- based ASEAN Education Center, said the summit would give an opportunity to Cambodia to ask the U.S. for more duty-free products to the U.S. market.

    "The U.S. remains the biggest export market for Cambodian goods. Having more access of tax free Cambodian goods will boost local economy and productivity, and which ultimately will have a positive effect on labor market jordan 13 retro for sale ," he said.

    Chheang Vannarith, chairman of the Cambodian Institute for Strategic Studies, said the summit will be a chance for Cambodia to boost economic ties with the world's largest economy.

    "The U.S. is the main market for Cambodia. Attracting American investors to Cambodia is Cambodia's interest and motive," he said.

    The expert said the forthcoming summit demonstrates that the United States gives equal importance to ASEAN as it does with China.

    "This is the first summit between U.S. and ASEAN after both sides agreed to elevate their partnership to a strategic partnership last November," he said. "The summit clearly signals the U.S. commitment in supporting the role of ASEAN in maintaining peace, stability, and development in the Asia- Pacific region."

    He said the summit is likely to focus on economic cooperation and integration between the United States and ASEAN jordan 13 for sale , maritime security, particularly the South China Sea, terrorism and religious radicalism, climate change, water-food-energy security nexus, and cultural and educational exchanges.

    "For the issue of South China Sea, ASEAN does not have authority or legitimate rights to intervene into sovereignty disputes between its member states or between its member states with other countries jordan 13 flint blue for sale ," Vannarith said.

    Direct dialogue and negotiations between direct claimants are the most appropriate and effective ways to resolve the differences, he added.

    LONDON, Feb. 19 (Xinhua) -- A 20 percent tax on sugary drinks could reduce obesity rates in Britain by 5 percent by 2025, according to a new report published Friday by Cancer Research UK.

    The report predicts that the sugary drinks tax can lead to some 3.7 million fewer obese people if current trends continue.

    Being overweight and obese is a major cause of preventable illness and death in Britain, including cancer, type two diabetes, coronary heart disease and stroke.

    Junk food air jordan 13 flints for sale , high in sugar and fat, is cheap, widely promoted and all too accessible. Research shows that the price of food influences what people buy, so introducing a tax on sugary drinks provides an incentive to buy less or switch to a healthier choice.

    Adults and young children consume twice the maximum recommended amount of added sugar. And 11 to 18-year-olds' eat and drink three times the recommended limit, with sugary drinks being their main source of added sugar, according to the report.

    Recent polls show that a sugary drink tax is backed by the majority of the public with 55 percent supporting the measure and only 36 percent opposed.

    "The ripple effect of a small tax on sugary drinks is enormous. These numbers make it clear why we need to act now before obesity becomes an even greater problem," said Alison Cox jordan 13 chicago for sale , Cancer Research UK's director of cancer prevention.

    "The government has a chance to help reduce the amount of sugar consumed by adults and children and to give future generations the best chance of a healthier life," said Cox.

    NABLUS, West Bank, Aug. 18 (Xinhua) -- During the first decade of the 21st century, the West Bank witnessed an economic boost, followed by a blow from which it is still recovering.

    The reason for that was the outbreak of the popular uprising in September 2000, and the once vitalized commercial and business center of the West Bank jordan 13 chicago 2017 , Nablus, was strongly hit.

    The second largest city in the West Bank was subject to 4,804 hours of curfew between April 2002 and September 2004 according to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society, and an Israeli military system of checkpoints hit the nerve of the city, controlling the limited movement to and from the city.

    The old town of Nablus suffered the most with a 90 percent drop in its economy, according to the Municipality of Nablus.

    Within the 1.5 sq km old town, a surprisingly magnificent architecture that was built during the Mamluk-Ayubid era unravels a history of survival.

    According to the UNESCO jordan retro 13 squadron blue , the old Canaanite city has been extensively damaged by earthquakes.

    The city's elegance came from its special traditional buildings and architectural styles that show a unique urban pattern, mirrored in old Damascus of Syria.

    Its elegance was tarnished after the outbreak of the popular uprising (intifada) of 2000. The city walls were filled .
