Quote
LA PAZ (Reuters) - Bolivia's new president, Luis Arce, has moved swiftly to restore ties with Iran and Venezuela, receiving the credentials of ambassadors from the two countries on Wednesday, just three days after his socialist party retook the reins of power.

Bolivia's government said in a statement it wanted to "reestablish diplomatic relations damaged by the previous de-facto government" led by conservative interim president Jeanine Anez.

Writing on Twitter, Arce said he was restoring bilateral relations with Venezuela "to strengthen strategic ties for the good of our peoples."

He said the same was being done with Iran and that "they are always welcome in Bolivia. We will continue to strengthen common projects."

Iran's foreign minister Javad Zarif attended Arce's swearing-in ceremony in La Paz on Sunday as part of a tour of leftist Latin American nations that included Venezuela and Cuba.

Australia and China Tensions

Why has the Australia-China relationship turned sour? | Inside Story
Quote
Ties between Australia and China are unravelling fast. Beijing has imposed a tariff of up to 212 percent on Australian wine, the latest in an escalating dispute. China says it's a measure against dumping to protect its own wine industry. But Australia believes the reason's political. The government in Canberra has criticised China's handling of COVID-19, as well as human rights issues in Xinjiang and Hong Kong. Is there room to repair the relationship?

Further escalation in feud between Australia and China | DW News
Quote
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Monday said a fake image that was tweeted by a high-ranking Chinese official was "truly repugnant." Morrison called a media briefing specifically to condemn the posting of the picture, which shows an Australian soldier holding a knife to the throat of a veiled Afghan child carrying a lamb in her arms. Morrison described the image as being "deeply offensive to every Australian." He said he had reached out to Twitter and Chinese authorities for the immediate removal of the post.

The digitally altered post came from Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian on Monday. Responses that came to the tweet from those springing to Australia's defense referred to the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre and the repression and persecution of Muslims in China's northwestern region of Xinjiang. Zhao's comments follow the release earlier this month of a damning report into alleged war crimes by Australian special forces soldiers in Afghanistan from 2005 to 2016. A four-year inquiry found that there was "credible information" to substantiate claims that Australian soldiers unlawfully killed 39 prisoners and civilians. Washington criticized Zhao in March over his tweet about a conspiracy theory that US soldiers may have taken the coronavirus to China. He is considered a leading representative of Beijing's new assertive approach to foreign relations.

A rift between the two nations has deepened since the Australian government called for an independent inquiry into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic. Since then, China has imposed tariffs and other restrictions on certain Australian exports.

Australia demands apology after Chinese official tweets 'falsified image' of soldier threatening child
Quote
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has demanded the Chinese government delete a "repugnant" and "falsified image" on Twitter that appears to show an Australian soldier threatening to slit a child's throat.
The image, set against a backdrop of the Australian and Afghan flags, was shared on Monday morning Beijing time from Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian's verified Twitter account with the caption: "Shocked by the murder of Afghan civilians & prisoners by Australian soldiers."
The spat is the latest example of souring relations between the two countries, with tensions ramping up despite China being Australia's biggest trading partner.

If the image is indeed false we should remember western media had no problems doing the same to Germany during WWI and WWII.

China: Australia should offer apology to Afghan people over "cruel crimes," says Beijing
Quote
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying urged Australia to apologise to Afghanistan for what she called 'cruel crimes' committed by its soldiers in Afghanistan during a press briefing in Beijing on Monday.

Hua's comment responded to Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison demand of an official apology from Beijing, after Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian posted a doctored image depicting an Australian soldier holding a knife to an Afghan child's throat.

"The Australian side is acting so strongly on my colleague's Twitter. Does that mean they think the cold-blood murder of Afghan innocent civilians is justified while other people's condemnations on such cruel crimes are not justified? Afghan lives matter," Hua stated.

"The Australian government should do some soul searching and bring the culprits to justice as well as offer the official apology to the Afghan people and make the sole pledge that they will never repeat such crimes," she added.

Earlier on Monday, Lijian Zhao, a spokesperson for China's Foreign Ministry, posted the fabricated image in reference to alleged war crimes committed by Australian forces in Afghanistan between 2009 and 2013.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison condemned the fabricated image on Monday, calling it 'truly repugnant' and 'utterly outrageous.' He stressed that the tweet must be taken down and called for an apology from Beijing.

Tensions between Beijing and Canberra have been increasing since the Australian government called for an independent international investigation over the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.

China's attitude is improving:

https://www.scmp.com/news/china/diplomacy/article/3111903/australian-fury-china-foreign-ministry-tweet-doctored-war

Quote
A war of words between Australia and China has intensified, with the Chinese foreign ministry refusing to remove a tweet featuring a meme-like illustration of an Australian soldier appearing to murder a child.

The image was posted on Twitter on Monday morning by Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian, accompanied by the text: “Shocked by murder of Afghan civilians & prisoners by Australian soldiers. We strongly condemn such acts, & call for holding them accountable.”

Foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said she stood by her subordinate Zhao over the post, which drew an immediate and furious response from Canberra. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison also demanded the removal of the tweet.

“Australia has already confirmed that their soldiers have committed serious war crimes in Afghanistan ... The details are shocking and their brutal behaviour has been strongly condemned by the international community,” Hua said.

“Australia has shown a strong response to my colleague ... and said the Chinese government should feel ashamed. Shouldn’t Australia feel ashamed for sending their soldiers to commit such atrocities and killing innocent civilians in Afghanistan?”

In the colonialist mindset, the problem is not the colonial powers initiating violence, but the victims complaining about it. Our duty is to remind those who still think this way that the colonial era is over.

Killing of Afghan civilians by Australian soldiers confirmed, who should apologize?
Quote
A tweet from Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian has made headlines. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison demanded an apology, which has been refused by China. This is the latest incident in the turbulent relationship between the two countries. The question is, was Zhao Lijian's tweet appropriate? What about the killing of Afghan civilians that Zhao highlighted? Can anything stop the free fall of China-Australia relations?

The Jews would have you believe that the Indians and Pakistanis are eternal enemies who just hate each other, but this video seems to show the contrary.

Kagame also needs to stop using the term "Africa". The following (marked in red) is the only historically accurate meaning of Africa:



To use the term to denote any region beyond this is Eurocentrism.

And he should stop wearing a Western suit.

Quote
Germany finishes a two-year term on the 15-member council at the end of this month and Ambassador Christoph Heusgen plans to retire after more than 40 years as a diplomat.

"Let me end my tenure on the Security Council by appealing to my Chinese colleagues to ask Beijing for the release of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor. Christmas is the right moment for such a gesture," Heusgen told the council session, whose official agenda topic was Iran.

Kovrig, a former Canadian diplomat who was working as an adviser for the International Crisis Group think tank, and businessman Spavor were detained by Beijing in 2018 shortly after Canadian police picked up Huawei Technologies Co Ltd Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou on a U.S. warrant.

China's deputy U.N. ambassador, Geng Shuang, accused Heusgen of abusing the Security Council to launch "malicious" attacks on other members "in an attempt to poison the working atmosphere".

"I wish to say something out of the bottom of my heart: Good riddance, Ambassador Heusgen," Geng said. "I am hoping that the council in your absence in the year 2021 will be in a better position to fulfil the responsibilities...for maintaining international peace and security."

I like this response. Just one thing, Geng:



Stop wearing that Western suit. What we need to be saying good riddance to is Western civilization as a whole!

China-India Ties: What efforts are needed to further de-escalate tensions?
Quote
After imposing a preliminary ban in June on 59 Chinese apps, including TikTok and WeChat, India made the ban permanent this week. What's the thinking behind the blanket ban? And China and India have held a ninth round of the Corps Commander Level Meetings agreeing to push for an early disengagement of frontline troops. So what efforts are needed to further de-escalate tensions in the region? And how much impact is the border dispute having on economic ties?
