Brown told Xi his state cherishes its traditional friendship with China.

The second piece:
British police continue to investigate a deadly attack last Saturday in London.
Seven people were killed and more than 50 others injured on or near the world-famous London Bridge.
It started when three men drove a van into people walking on the bridge. The men then got out of the vehicle and ran to a nearby market and began stabbing people. The victims reportedly included British nationals and foreigners. London police killed three attackers.
The attacks turned much attention in the election campaign to national security issues.
British Prime Minister Theresa May condemned the latest violence. She said that, in addition to being an attack on London and the United Kingdom, it was also one "on the free world."
May said there was no clear evidence that the three attacks were operationally connected. But she said they were "bound together by the evil ideology of Islamist extremism."
The third piece:
The internet investment fund is proceeding in an orderly way, as the first round of fund has been raised and is in place, the Ministry of Finance said on its official website on Tuesday.
The 100-billion-yuan ($14.6 billion) fund, co-sponsored by Cyberspace Administration of China and Ministry of Finance, was launched in January to support investment in the internet sector.
An initial 30 billion yuan was raised from six strategic partners, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, CITIC Guoan Group Co Ltd, China Post Life Insurance Corp Ltd and China's three major telecoms carriers China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom, according to the Xinhua news agency.
ICBC, one of the largest investors in the fund, invested 10 billion yuan.
All the related work, such as business registration, director candidate recommendation, making regulations and collecting information, will be completed soon in an orderly way, the Ministry of Finance said on its website.
The last piece:
President was to reinstate what is known as the Mexico City Policy. That policy, named for the city where it was first introduced by President Ronald Reagan in 1984,bars family planning funding from the State Department or the U. S. Agency for International Development to foreign nongovernmental organizations that perform or promote abortion. Under President Trump, that policy has been expanded.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has approved a plan that widens the prohibition against funding to foreign nongovernmental organizations that perform or actively promote abortion
as a method of family planning to include global health assistance provided by all U. S. departments or agencies. This means that $8.8 billion dollars in funds for international health programs, such as those for HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health, malaria, global health security, family planning, and reproductive health are subject to the policy.
