The 2017 Sanya Energy International Forum Focuses on Energy Transformation in China

SANYA, China, Dec. 10, 2017 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/– Themed on “Green Energy and Low Carbon Economy”, the 2017 Sanya Energy International Forum (SEIF) was held in Sanya, Hainan on December 7-8. The experts present at the forum expected that China’s energy industry would develop towards organic integration of various energy sources as well as integrated and complementary distributed energy sources.

Nearly 300 domestic and foreign leading experts and scholars specializing in energy gathered together to discuss energy transformation.

The International Energy Agency predicted that China’s demand for energy will reach 5 billion tons of standard coal by 2020, and by 2035, China will surpass the US to become the world’s largest energy consumer.

Li Shousheng, President of China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation, said that today China has become the fastest growing producer of crude oil, refined oil and natural gas in the world. China’s crude output in 2016 was 200 million tons, and domestic crude output has stabilized at more than 200 million tons for 6 consecutive years since 2010. At present, China’s crude output ranks the fifth in the world, accounting for about 4.7% of the world’s crude output.

The experts denoted that China’s energy transformation is confronted with many challenges. In view of current energy structure and atmospheric pollution, we should focus on optimizing energy structure and enlarging the proportion of renewable energy.

Zheng Xinli, Executive President of China Association of Policy Science, thought that it was necessary to accelerate the construction of infrastructure and ships for the import of natural gas, strengthen the exploration and development of domestic natural gas, especially shale gas, including the exploration and development of marine combustible ice, speed up the clean and efficient utilization of coal-to-natural gas and coal, and accelerate the development and utilization of biomass and renewable energy.

Zheng Xinli said, “In the Ordos Basin, the annual output of coal is 900 million tons. If we can extract the small molecules of natural gas and oil from within the coal by using the relatively mature low-temperature pyrolysis method, we can provide about 100 million tons of oil and natural gas each year, which could replace a considerable part of imported natural gas and oil.”

Lin Huajun, President and CEO of Changfeng Energy Inc., pointed out that the key to adjust industrial structure and transform the mode of economic growth is to adjust the utilization structure of primary energy.

Lin Huajun said, “The active development of new energy, continuous improvement of energy conversion technology, enhancement of energy utilization efficiency, innovation of energy utilization technology and supply service business model, as well as the achievement of energy conservation and emission reduction, all have a long-term strategic significance to promote China’s rapid economic development, and realize industrial upgrading and environmental protection.”

Protesters Lash Out at Trump Across Muslim World

Large crowds of protesters across the Muslim world staged anti-U.S. marches Friday after the United States recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, with protests in Gaza leading to the death of one Palestinian man.

The Palestinian, Mahmoud al-Masri, 30, was killed by Israeli soldiers during clashes along the Israel-Gaza border after Palestinians called for a Day of Rage to protest the U.S. action. The Israeli military confirmed that it shot two people in Khan Yunis in southern Gaza, accusing them of being main instigators of violent riots.

Israeli warplanes also struck Hamas military targets in Gaza in response to a rocket fired from the area. The Palestinian health ministry said at least 15 people were injured in the strikes.

Demonstrations also took place Friday in Iraq, Jordan, Syria, Pakistan, Lebanon, Malaysia and Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim-majority country.

The Arab League, comprised of nearly two dozen countries, will meet Saturday in an effort to create a joint position on the matter.

U.S. President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and the United States plans to move its embassy there. Israel considers all of Jerusalem to be its capital. The Palestinians want the eastern part of Jerusalem for its capital of a future independent state.

Holy sites

Israel has added additional security forces in Jerusalem. In the past, Israel has imposed age restrictions at Jerusalem’s Temple Mount compound where violence often erupts during tense times.

Israeli police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said, We have no indication there will be disturbances on the mount, therefore there is no age restriction. If there will be disturbances, then we will respond immediately.

The site is known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and to Jews as the Temple Mount. It is the holiest Jewish site and the third holiest in Islam.

The Islamist group Hamas, meanwhile, has called for an uprising against Israel.

Decade of diplomacy defied

Trump’s announcement defies decades of diplomacy in the quest to bring peace to Israel. Jerusalem has been one of the biggest stumbling blocks in the quest and it was widely believed that a solution would be reached in the peace process negotiations.

The White House on Thursday denied that the president’s announcement on moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem means his administration is pulling out of the Middle East peace process.

In fact, in the president’s remarks, he said that we are as committed to the peace process as ever, and we want to continue to push forward in those conversations and those discussions, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters. And hopefully the ultimate goal, I think, of all those parties is to reach a peace deal. And that’s something that the United States is very much committed to.

No other country has immediately followed Trump’s lead in planning to relocate its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, something the White House has acknowledged.

I’m not aware of any countries that we anticipate that happening at any point soon, Sanders said. I’m not saying that they aren’t, but I’m not aware of them.

The Russian ambassador in Israel, Alexander Shein, said Moscow could move its embassy to West Jerusalem after the Palestinians and the Israelis agree on all issues of the final status of the Palestinian territories.

The Russian foreign ministry, in a statement viewed as a surprise by Israelis, said it considers East Jerusalem as the capital of the future Palestinian state. At the same time, we must state that in this context we view West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Both Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis have expressed concern about the timing of Trump’s announcement, according to U.S. officials.

Asked by VOA whether the president’s declaration had been delayed at the request of the two Cabinet members in order to put into place adequate security at U.S. embassies, Sanders replied the decision was made only after a thoughtful and responsible process and that components of the decision went through the full interagency process.

Palestinian officials say Trump’s decision has disqualified the U.S. as an honest broker in the peace process. Many U.S. allies are also disagreeing with the move.

Pakistan Ambassador Urges Cooperation with Afghanistan on Border Security

The Pakistan-Afghanistan border must be secured to keep terrorists from crossing “at free will,” Pakistan’s ambassador to the U.S. says.

Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry told VOA Urdu in an interview that the Afghan government’s change in priorities � focusing on protecting urban areas � has given the Taliban and other extremist groups room to roam freely in a growing patchwork in the rest of the country.

“Pakistan has been cautioning for a long time that the ungoverned spaces in Afghanistan will act as a magnet for the militants of the world,” Chaudhry said. “I think the situation in Afghanistan is deteriorating.”

He repeated Pakistan’s claims that it is not harboring any terror groups despite President Donald Trump’s insistence, as part of his new strategy for the region, that Islamabad must do more to crack down on extremists.

“In Pakistan itself, there is no organized presence of ISIS,” Chaudhry said, criticizing Afghanistan’s claims that Islamic State fighters are filtering in from Pakistan. “Don’t create distractions by saying they come from Pakistan. We can never tolerate the presence of Daesh [ISIS] in Pakistan.”

Pakistan says recent military operations have chased terrorists from the country.

“In the last three years, we have done a lot, not for the sake of any other country, but for our own people,” Chaudhry said. “We have defeated the forces of terrorism. The terrorists are on the run. There is no safe haven in Pakistan. The safe havens have moved into Afghanistan. That is where the focus of action should be.”

He called for closer cooperation between the two countries’ intelligence agencies and militaries.

“One major area to work on is border management,” Chaudhry said. “We both must make sure the terrorists cannot cross the border at free will. Let’s secure that border.”

Pakistan has been building a border wall and has repeatedly closed the main border crossings, shutting down trade between the two countries for extended periods.

Chaudhry also called for cooperation on dealing with Afghan refugees and reconstruction, saying there is no military solution possible for the ongoing conflict there.
