JAPANESE athletes at the Youth Olympics in Nanjing this month have been told not to wear their official tracksuits around town due to “safety fears Chad Thomas Jersey ,” according to Japanese media reports.

Delegation chief Yosuke Fujiwara has told Japan’s 78 athletes to wear regular clothes outside the Games venues during the August 16-28 event to avoid any attack, with China-Japan relations at their lowest level in years.

The teenagers will also be encouraged to don facemasks to protect themselves from air pollution.

“When they are outside we want them to be aware that it might not be totally safe,” Fujiwara told Kyodo news agency.

“In the athletes’ village we want them to wear the official Japan tracksuit, but in the city normal clothes are fine.”

In an apparent attempt to avoid upsetting the Chinese, Fujiwara added: “You can get random attacks on the street in Japan too.”

Anti-Japanese resentment runs particularly high in Nanjing, where 300,000 Chinese were killed in 1937 as invading Japanese troops rampaged through the city in what became known as the Nanjing Massacre.

The massacre was the Japanese military’s worst atrocity and remains a bitter stain on the two countries’ relationship.

Fujiwara’s comments came at a time of heightened political tension between Japan and China, which are at odds over the Diaoyu Islands in the East China Sea and historical grievances tied to Japan’s wartime aggression.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s recent decision to relax strict rules governing the country’s military has further antagonized China, prompting Fujiwara to issue the warning.

But the contestants would still be free to explore the city, he said.

“We think it’s better for the athletes to feel the atmosphere in the city from their own perspective,” Fujiwara said.

Japanese sports teams and the country’s national anthem are sometimes booed in China, most notably at the 2004 Asian Cup football final between China and Japan in Beijing which ended in a full-scale riot after a Japanese victory.

Japan’s delegation arrives in Nanjing tomorrow. It features girls’ badminton junior world champion Akane Yamaguchi and Yuto Muramatsu, who won bronze in the men’s singles at the Japan Open table tennis earlier this year.



FOLLOWING Shanghai and Hong Kong, Shenzhen ranked third among all cities in China for competitiveness in 2017, according to a list of Chinese cities’ competitiveness unveiled in Hong Kong on Wednesday, Xinhua News Agency reported.

The list was compiled and released by China Institute of City Competitiveness. According to the report, the list was made by analyzing and comparing 358 cities in China over the course of last year. The cities’ competitiveness was calculated by 10 Grade-I indices, 50 Grade-II indices and 216 Grade-III indices with four evaluating systems, namely economy, society, environment and culture.

The next six cities from fourth to 10th place were Beijing, Guangzhou, Chongqing, Tianjin, Hangzhou, Suzhou and Nanjing. Shanghai has taken the first place on the list for five consecutive years.

The institute’s director, Gui Qiangfang, said Shenzhen has one of the strongest growth potentials in China. Gui said the Shenzhen Municipal Government has taken various measures to maintain the competitiveness of the city’s real economy, as the city is facing a growing population, decreasing land resources and higher factor costs.

The institute was established in Hong Kong back in 1998 as one of the earliest academic institutions to study the competitiveness of cities. It released its first competitiveness ranking of Chinese cities in 2002.

BEIJING, Dec. 28 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese mainland resolutelyopposes any official contact between the United States and Taiwan,said Ren Guoqiang, spokesperson of the Ministry of National DefenseThursday.

Ren made the remarks in response to an inquiry on a "defensereport" released on the island, which talked a lot about militarycooperation with the United States.

Taiwan is a part of China so it is not possible for it to have a"defense report", said Ren.

The mainland strives for peaceful reunification with utmostsincerity, but it will defend its sovereignty and territorialintegrity unflinchingly, Ren said.

It is pointless to rely on foreign and military forces to assist"Taiwan independence" and only by sticking to the 1992 Consensus,can the two sides ensure peace and stability across the Strait,said Ren. Enditem
