A new natural gas network in the Xinjiang Uygur auton上海后花园品茶微信
omous region is making life for residents like Hazret Mamut much more convenient.
“I used to go to the gas station to change the fuel tank when it was empty, which used to take 10 minutes of riding an electric sco上海后花园品茶微信

“Using natural gas costs less than 20 yuan ($2.90) every month for cooking,” Hazret added.上海后花园
Such convenience in Hazret’s life is due to a natural gas p

Since the natural gas pipeline was put into operation in May in Wushi county in Aksu prefecture, Hazret’s home, a natural ga

The Foreign Ministry confirmed on Monday the detention of a Canadian citizen accu上海419论坛品茶微信

All of the space lab’s assigned tasks have been finished. It is scheduled
