He and his team carried out more than 800 surgeries la

st year, increasing from 21 surgeries in 2000, the first year he returned to Zhengzhou from Australia, he said.

Cheng hoped the schematic diagrams could make a contribution for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases in the future.

Besides his persistence on drawing the schematic diagrams, he also keeps improving techniques for his surgeries.

He has been using the 8-0 sutures, the most delicate and fine surg

ical stitches for heart surgeries, ever since he came back to the hospital in 2000.

“For the anastomosis (or connection) of tiny coronary blood vessel in heart surgery, th

e 8-0 sutures can maintain better blood flow to the heart compared with other size of threads,” Cheng said.

This is a challenge for a surgeon because he has to be very gentle in the process when co

nnecting the blood vessels of 1.5-2.0mm with this kind of fine sutures, either not too loose or not too tight.

Cheng is one of the five surgeons who use this technique in almost every case of coronary bypass operation in China, according to Dahe Daily.

No evidence was found to show Chinese monetary

 authority intervention in foreign exchange markets over the past se

veral months, according to the US Treasury’s semiannual foreign-exchange report to Congress.

The May report summarized that China’s growth appears to be stabilizing on the back of recently enhanced supportive measures.

The report expanded the number of countries it scrutinizes for curre

ncy manipulation to 21 from 12. Countries with a current account surplus with the US

equivalent to 2 percent of GDP were put on the watch list, compared with 3 percent of GDP before.

China didn’t meet the “currency manipulator” criteria listed by the US Treasury, but Washington will continue asse

ssing the RMB’s performance given China’s large trade surplus with the US, the report said.

Lu Yong, vice-president of Huawei Technologies Co, said China’s d

igital economy has thrived on the basis that China has built the world’s largest 4G network.

“5G is not just a faster 4G. It will fundamentally reshape how enterprises run busine

sses and overhaul a wide range of industries by using data to create more value,” Lu said.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang reiterated on Monday that China

has been holding a consistent position in trade frictions with the United States, say

ing the differences should be resolved through friendly consultations and negotiations.

Lu’s remarks came as US President Donald Trump said in Japan that the US isn’t ready to make a trade deal with Ch

ina, but he’s leaving open the possibility that the two nations could strike an agreement someday.

Separately, on the same day, the US Commerce Department

said it would be adding Huawei and its 70 affiliates to an Entity List, which will ban the compan

y from buying parts and components of US companies without prior government approval.

Gao Feng, spokesman for the Ministry of Commerce, said at a briefing that the con

cept of national security “should not be used as a tool for trade protectionism”.

“China strongly opposes other countries imposing unilateral sanctions on Chinese entities,” Gao said.

He called on the US to stop its wrongful behavior and make more efforts to create conditions for normal international trade cooperation.

Huawei has been increasing its 5G commercial contracts worldwide, with more countries giving the com

pany a vote of confidence. But it is facing security allegations from the US, which Huawei has said are unfounded.

The legislation states that Washington should condu

ct “regular sales” of “defense articles” to Taiwan and back its participation in international organizations.

“We urge the US side to keep its promise, abide by the one-­China policy a

nd the three joint communiques, and block the bill’s progress,” Geng said.

He urged the US to “appropriately handle the Taiwan question to avoid serious da

mage to Sino-US cooperation in key areas, and the peace and security of the region”.

Experts said the bill will further damage Sino-US relations, and the confr

ontational approach taken by the US against China will damage regional peace and security.

Yuan Zheng, director of US foreign relations research at the Institute of American Studies under the Chinese Academy of

Social Sciences, said the recent passage of US naval vessels through the Taiwan Straits, arms sales and

political support to Taiwan are meant to help Taiwan separatists and pressure Beijing.
