Li said that in the past, China had "agreed to let the Taiwan region attend" under a "special arrangement" based on acceptance of the principle.
By Alister Doyle OSLO (Reuters) - Norway is repairing the entrance of a "doomsday" seed vault on an Arctic island after an unexpected thaw of permafrost let water into a building meant as a deep freeze to safeguard the world's food supplies.
