THE HAGUE Nike Vapormax Off White Baratas , Nov. 8 (Xinhua) -- During the annual Benelux summit, this time in The Hague, the Prime Ministers of the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg on Wednesday expressed the ambition to more extensive cooperation on dealing with cross-border crime and terrorism.
"We are convinced that we have to further extend our police cooperation and we are preparing to strengthen this cooperation," said Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel during a press moment in The Hague.
"Not only in the fight against terror, but also in preventive cooperation on security and to protect our citizens and also in exchanging information, which is crucial for our security services.

"The Benelux partnership is a way for our three countries to tackle transnational challenges and play a pioneering role in Europe," Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte stated.
"The Benelux is an incubator for further action in moving forward in the European Union," Xavier Bettel, Prime-Minister of Luxembourg added.

With the United Nations Climate Change Conference currently taking place in Bonn, Germany, the Benelux countries expressed a common ambition in making an energy transition, from polluting emissions to a world of more sustainable energy.
"The Climate Agreement of Paris is, as liberal Prime Ministers Nike Vapormax 97 Baratas , an enormous opportunity to tackle global warming, while creating additional growth and jobs," Rutte said.
"The global cooperation is still in the early stages on climate change, but the Benelux also wants to take a leading role in the European Union on this subject."

ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands, Nov. 9 (Xinhua) -- Chinese bike-sharing company Mobike on Thursday officially announced its launch after a successful trial period in the Netherlands, first in Rotterdam Nike Vapormax Mujer Baratas , the country's second largest city.
"We started with 150 bikes weeks ago and now there are some four to five hundreds in the streets. That's not many. We really want to know how people will use Mobike, so we do it slightly and in a proper manner," said Ronald Haverman, who now leads the introduction of Mobike into his country.
Haverman is also founder of the Dutch bike sharing program OV-fietsen known to every Dutch family.
To mark its entry into Rotterdam, Mobike invited Chantal Blaak, Cycling World Champion 2017 and local Rotterdammer, as official first rider at the launching ceremony and Jochum Haakma Nike Vapormax Hombre Baratas , Chairman of the EU-China Business Association (EUCBA in Brussels) and Chairman of Netherland-China Business Association (NCBC) as guest speaker.
Founded in April 2016, Mobike is now active in some 180 cities worldwide, including in Singapore, Italy, Britain, the United States and South Korea. It aims to ride into over 200 global cities in total by the end of 2017.
The company said it has placed 7 million bikes worldwide for more than 200 million registered users and 30 million rides per day.
Every Mobike is equipped with a GPS tracker, making it possible to have its location and state checked at anytime. People can easily open and lock its smart slot with an app on mobile.
A dozen of other global provider are also riding similar programs into various cities.
But the new cashless and dockless bike-sharing schemes are advancing at a slower pace in the Netherlands Zapatillas Nike Vapormax Baratas , a country enjoys the fame of "the Kingdom of Bicycles" where cycling is a daily life.
The capital city of Amsterdam decided in August to temporarily clear up all sharing bikes, citing the reason that the bikes occupied the city's scarce public space.
"Mobike enters a city only with the city's approval," said Haverman. "In Rotterdam, we work well with the municipality and other local stakeholders. We have been talking quite often for months."
As agreed, Mobike "has a team seven days a week from early morning to late in the evening" to move misplaced bicycles and all defective bikes will be replaced, Haverman added. "Because we really want things nice and tidy."
Rotterdam aims to be the best Dutch bicycle city in 2018. According
