I agree with @alfredmwu that all the negotiations on the key positions are done, the top 25 men and women in the politburo should have known the lineup already.
Forget about the stupid rumours. That’s just waste of time. Let’s look at who are the appearing on the #ccp 20th party congress’ delegate list. scmp.com/news/china/politics…

Prominent commentator @HuXijin_GT encouraged Chinese epidemic experts to speak out and debate on the next of China’s Covid strategy going forward. While I am not sure how will Beijing officials are going to take it, it is still an unusual call ahead of the party congress.

So He Weidong is likely be the new commander of the Joint-staff command centre. We should also take note that former Northern Theatre commander Li Qiaoming, is wearing a ground force badge. Will he take over the ground force after Liu Zhenli being promoted to CMC?
國防和軍隊改革研討會9月21日在 京召開, 按照官方發布, 「軍委機關各部 門、軍委聯指中心、各戰區、各軍兵 種、軍事科學院、國防大學、國防科技 大學、武警部隊」 有關負責人參加此次 會議。這一表述與此前有明顯不同,重大變化是軍委聯指中心獨立 單列。 東部戰區原司令何衛東坐鎮

National security adviser Jake Sullivan tells @GStephanopoulos that the U.S. has “communicated directly, privately to the Russians at very high levels that there will be catastrophic consequences for Russia if they use nuclear weapons in Ukraine.” abcn.ws/3CaIIK2

This is so true for the Chinese university freshmen since 2020. They are either locked in in their dormitories or at home, learning primarily via online classes.

On Sep 21, General Li Qiaoming, 61, appeared on the CCTV. He stepped down from of the Northern Theater commander earlier while he still has 4 years before retirement, which might be an indication of promotion. How can the #coupinchina be true while the key names are still on TV?

I am sure there will be some power struggles, but a #coupinchina? Do you know who is the CMC chair and vice chair? without their direct order, no one can mobilize anything. General Li Qiaoming also appeared on CCTV on 22 Sep. So guys, pls wash up and go to bed. 洗洗睡吧。

The global outpouring of rage and empathy over the death in custody of #MahsaAmini must be followed by concrete steps by the international community. Here’s how…

Hmmm, with the new Taiwan Policy Act, there is very little room for China to reopen the climate talk unless the White House do something with the the law makers.
I support SPEC Kerry @ClimateEnvoy’s comments @nytclimate event. As the world's two largest greenhouse gas emitters, the 🇺🇸 & 🇨🇳 must work together to combat the global climate crisis. Leading up to #COP27, China should resume talks with the U.S. on climate.
Lithuania will not be granting asylum to those who are simply running from responsibility. Russians should stay and fight. Against Putin.

Mykhailo Dianov, a musician and a Ukrainian soldier recently released in a prisoner exchange. First photo — Mykhailo during the siege of Azovstal. Second photo — Mykhailo after Russian captivity. I have no words. Terrifying.

Peter Varghese: “For Australia, a US-led world or regional order is certainly better than a China-led world or regional order. But that does not make it a vital Australian interest and to frame it as such would be, in my view, a serious mistake.” theaustralian.com.au/inquire…

I met with PRC Foreign Minister Wang Yi today in NYC. I reiterated the need to maintain open lines of communication and discussed ways to responsibly manage the U.S.-PRC relationship, especially during times of tension.

The Russian embassy in Singapore, in an open letter to The Straits Times, says the national broadsheet has been spreading “blatant lie and disinformation” by republishing Western media. “We do hope that The Straits Times will abide by journalism standards.”
