Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Said

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he plans to join an Israeli settlement in the occupied West Bank, repeating elections made five months ago on Sunday, but not giving any deadlines again. Settlement is one of the most intense problems in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Palestinians expressed concern that Netanyahu could ignore the international agreement and proceed with the merger with the support of his close alliance, President of the United States, Donald Trump.

Academic Opening Ceremony

Netanyahu said in a speech at the West Bank settlement in El Cana on Sunday, “With God's help, we will extend Jewish sovereignty to all settlements as part of the (biblical) Israeli land as part of the nation of Israel. Academic Opening Ceremony. He did not say when planning such a move. Netanyahu, who is leading the right-wing liqueur, made a similar pledge ahead of the Israeli general election in April. After voting, he failed to form a majority of parliamentarians and will hold a new election on September 17.

Trump is still pending the announcement of the US Peace Plan, which already acknowledged the 1981 merger of the Israeli Golan Heights, occupied by Syria in the 1967 Middle East War. The Palestinians are trying to make the West Bank part of a future country that includes the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem as its capital. Israel occupied the area in 1967 and moved troops and settlers from Gaza in 2005.

According to Israeli statistics, more than 400,000 Israelis now live in the West Bank after decades of settlement among the Palestinian population, which is about 2.9 million of the Palestinian population. According to the UN Humanitarian Secretariat, 212,000 Israeli settlers live in East Jerusalem. Netanyahu said in Elkanah, “This is our land. “We will build another Elkanah and another Elkanah and another Elkanah. Netanyahu said.

Palestinians and many countries consider it illegal to agree to settle in war-torn land under the Geneva Convention. Israel debates this by mentioning security needs and biblical, historical and political relations to the land. The Israeli-Palestinian peace talks collapsed in 2014.

The Trump administration says it plans to announce an Israeli-Palestinian peace plan after the Israeli elections, and it has not said whether it will support the two-state solution, which was the basis for past negotiations.

China's factory activity declined

Increasing US trade pressures and sluggish domestic demand pointed to the slowing of the world's second-largest economy, China's factory activity declined for four consecutive months in August. Continued weakness in China's vast manufacturing sector can raise expectations that Beijing should launch stimulus packages faster and more aggressively to overcome the biggest downturn in decades. The Chinese Bureau of Statistics (PMI) said that the August Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) fell to 49.5 in August, lower than 50 points separating monthly contraction and growth compared to July 49.7.

According to a Reuters poll, analysts expected the August PMI to remain the same as last month. Official factory gauges show increasing trade friction with the United States, and cooling demand continues to confuse Chinese exporters. Export orders declined for 15 consecutive months, but the sub-index rose to 47.2 from 46.9 in 76.9. Total new orders at home and abroad have also steadily declined, but domestic demand remains soft despite last year's sluggish measures.

Analysts at Goldman Sachs said

Full tariffs on exports to the US could increase trade and overall activity as tariffs increase, but this effect will disappear in the coming months. Manufacturers in consumption-driven industries such as the automotive sector were particularly vulnerable. Automakers like Geely and Great Wall drastically reduced their expectations for sales and profits. The data showed the contract activity of SMEs, even if government-sponsored large firms expanded in August. Due to the uncertain business outlook, the factory continued to lose jobs in August.

Employment sub-index fell to 46.9 compared to 47.1 in July. In August, a sharp increase occurred in the Central American trade row, with President Donald Trump announced that China's yuan exchange rate had weakened a few days later, which announced that he would impose new tariffs on Chinese goods from September 1. Trump said that as Beijing fights back with retaliatory tariffs, existing charges will increase in the coming months.

The combined move now effectively covers all Chinese exports to the United States. Trump said late on Friday that both trade teams would continue to talk and meet in September. But the tariff increase on Chinese goods, which will come into effect Sunday, will not be delayed. The US president said earlier this week that China would like to trade "very badly" citing economic pressures on Beijing and an explanation for job losses.

But most analysts suspect the dispute will end soon, and some have cut China's growth forecasts in recent quarters. The sudden deterioration in trade relations triggered speculation about whether China needs to take stronger measures to prevent growth below the 6% target, the lowest price of 6.0-6.5pc this year's target. Analysts expect Beijing to stabilize growth by cutting some of its major lending rates in September in four years.

However, sources recently noted that a large benchmark rate cut was seen as a last resort, fearing that policy benchmarkers in Reuters could increase their debt and push bank profit margins ahead of a recent trade deal, increasing financial risk. said. To date, Beijing has solved the economic slowdown, which includes hundreds of millions of dollars in infrastructure spending and corporate tax cuts through fiscal stimulus and monetary easing.

Infrastructure investments continue

But analysts are stressing the need for additional support as infrastructure investments continue to ease despite initial pump priming measures. After five months in August, China's service sector activity grew for the first time, and in August 53.7, the official figures of individual business surveys increased to 53.8. Beijing relies on a strong services sector to mitigate the economic impact of trade uncertainties and sluggish manufacturing.

However, the National Statistical Office said in a statement that the activity of the real estate industry has shrunk despite the high numbers. In recent years, the service sector has grown due to rising wages and strong consumption of Chinese consumers. However, the sector slowed down as the width slowed at the end of last year.
