(10 Apr 2019) Denmark's Queen Margrethe II on Wednesday opened a new enclosure at Copenhagen Zoo for two freshly arrived occupants, male Xing Er and female Mao Sun who were raised in China's Chengdu Panda Base.The pandas are on loan to the Scandinavian nation from China for one million euros per year as part of Beijing's so-called "panda diplomacy" initiative. The bears will inhabit a newly-built, 160 million-kroner (24.2 million US dollars) Panda House, designed by a renowned Danish architect Bjarke Ingels.Ingels said the circular-shaped enclosure was "divided into a yin and a yang" so the pandas could live in the same habitat without coming into contact, as they would fight if they did.The public will be able to see the bears for the first time on Thursday.Pernille Gorup Andersen, Copenhagen Zoo animal keeper, said she had spent three years preparing for their arrival and it was "really exciting" to have them at the zoo.For decades, China has lent out pandas as a sign of goodwill and closer political ties. Meanwhile outside the zoo, a small group of demonstrators waving Tibetan flags protested against human rights abuses in China.Find out more about AP Archive: Twitter: Facebook: Google+: Tumblr:​​ Instagram: You can license this story through AP Archive:
