WASHINGTON, Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed into law a sanctions bill on Russia, Iran and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), but he criticized the bill as "seriously flawed."

In a statement released by the White House Matt Wieters Jersey , Trump said while he favoured tough measures to "punish and deter bad behavior" by Iran and the DPRK and supported making clear to Russia that "America will not to tolerate interference in our democratic process," he criticized the legislation for including "unconstitutional provisions" and being "seriously flawed."

"Still, the bill remains seriously flawed - particularly because it encroached on the executive branch's authority to negotiate," said Trump.

Unlike previous sanctions bills, the new legislation grants U.S. lawmakers power to block Trump from unilaterally lifting sanctions on Russia.

BEIJING, Feb. 15 (Xinhua) -- China's foreign trade slumped in January Gio Gonzalez Jersey , with both exports and imports slowing at a faster-than-expected rate due to weak global demand, customs data showed on Monday.

Exports in yuan-denominated terms dropped 6.6 percent year on year to 1.14 trillion yuan (175 billion U.S. dollars), slowing from 2.3-percent growth last month, while imports declined 14.4 percent to 737.5 billion yuan, worsening from a 4-percent slump last month Derek Norris Jersey , according to the General Administration of Customs (GAC).
