Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday sent a congratulatory message to Yoshihide Suga on his election as Japanese prime minister. Xi pointed out that China and Japan are friendly neighbours to each other, and are both important countries in Asia and the world.
Developing a China-Japan relationship that features long-term stability and friendly cooperation not only serves the fundamental interests of both nations, but also contributes to peace, stability and prosperity in Asia and the world, Xi said.

We should improve our relationship with all countries wherever possible.

It is always good to see nations working together on a friendly basis or even tolerating each other on a friendly basis. Too many conflicts around the world.

I think interesting and geopolitically more than interesting! diplomatic tact on the part of Xi Jinping. Japan is a key ally and partner to the US. They trust America and support them to a high degree, but less so China. Jinping's wording holds some interesting inference, especially in the wake of China's growing importance in the region, and its discord with America. Still the message of friendship is there for the new Prime Minister.

China released a white paper, "China's Armed Forces: 30 Years of #UN #Peacekeeping Operations. The document highlighted China as a "key force" in UN peacekeeping operations over the past three decades as it serves on UN missions for world peace. An interesting read.

Thanks Mr.Q. I'm going to have a look at that.

Did have a glance, its heavily detailed of the work they have done, over the years, and stresses their commitment to peace. It's the UNs 75 anniversary. China's written contribution to the occasion I guess. I shall have a close look! between the lines ! haha

Ok, speeches and more speeches, at the UN General Assembly, rumbling on in much the same vein.

It has always more interesting in these type of things to watch what on goes on away from the speeches. Who is having an interesting delegation with whom, spotted going into a closed committee room with who, observation is equally important. BUT, bad old covid has spoilt all that fun.

We are fortunate in not having any enemies waiting at our borders to invade.

We are very fortunate in almost every aspect of our lives to be living in the UK.

It's also fortunate we have le nuclear bomb! Nothing like a bit of heavy metal deterrent. Opposing powers will never invade, everyone's safe.

A nuclear deterrent is imperative to countries likely to be attacked.

I see Kimjong Un has been displaying N. Korea's military weapons and missiles in their military parade. Shock of shocks, also included are some unexpected massive looking long range missiles. He has not had one of these parades since the talks with Trump. Maybe the upcoming election is a reminder to America of his substantial arsenal of weaponry.

"We are fortunate in not having any enemies waiting at our borders to invade."

Yeah, we just open our boarders and let them in, give them somewhere to live, money to live on and food to eat, we even give them there own religious place to prey and change some of our rules to not make them feel outcast and then once they are acclimatised they start to attack, Yeah, who needs any enemy waiting on their boarders! lol

Bloody hell Andy Mac that sounds awful and quite a scary scenario. I wouldn't feel safe in a country like that. Which country do you live in?
