Latest bootlicking by Eurocentrist Xi:

BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese President Xi Jinping told Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni on Wednesday at the G20 summit in Indonesia that he hoped Italy would play an important role in helping the European Union's policy towards China remain "positive" and "independent."

In their first-ever meeting, Xi and Meloni praised each other's countries as ancient civilisations, with Xi pointing out China's cooperation with Italy on battling COVID-19, and calling on China-Italy relations to become a "model for the development of relations between two countries with different social systems and cultural backgrounds," according to state broadcaster CCTV.


On 7 June 1902, the Italians took control of the concession, which was to be administered by an Italian consul.

After the First World War, Italy desired to add the former Austro-Hungarian concession which was adjacent to the Italian concession, and would have doubled its size. However, in 1917 China terminated the leases of Germany and Austria-Hungary's concessions. The districts were converted into "Special Areas" under Chinese control, with a separate administration from the rest of Tientsin.

Italy requested again the Austrian concession at the end of First World War and obtained it in 1920.[1]

Does Xi care? Of course not (just like he doesn't care about all the refugees unnecessarily drowning in the Mediterranean every day since Meloni came into power):

A meeting “marked by cordiality”, echoed Palazzo Chigi. So much so that, at the end of the face-to-face meeting, Xi invited Meloni to pay a visit to China.
There are immediately two details to underline. The first concerns the duration of the meeting, which has come close to 60 minutes, which is much more than expected. The second aspect calls into question the Chinese side’s interest in this bilateral agreement, given that the Dragon has deployed a high-profile delegation, such as Foreign Minister Wang Yi and the governor of the Central Bank (Pboc) Yi Gang.

His facial expression tells it all:
