Manchester Labor About Me

http://www.districtofcolumbia.tech/

This website is about Manchester and Dublin. There are concerns about the labor unions and military academies in Germany's eastern provinces. East Germany traded in East German mark. There are likely radio signals sent between Lubeck and Manchester pertaining to organized labor. Lubeck is a German port near the Gulf of Danzig. Warsaw is inland. There seem to be labor leaders in Warsaw who manage trade through Irish ports.

"Learning at work"
The locals are weird about learning. They don't have good schools here, really. There is Penn in Philadelphia, but there aren't Ivy League schools or large state schools near DC.
At the gym once, I met the gym director and she'd gotten all of these scuba diving certifications. That is an example of how she learned something.
The locals have a goal sometimes, of learning to do something.
It is true that from the beginning, the on paper of the EU made it apart and inherently separate from the American economy. That is an example of modern history, how everyone agrees that is right. I learned that in school.
This example from the Bulgarian news today.

"EU Commissioner Rejected the Idea of Financing a Fence along the Bulgarian-Turkish Border" "European Union interior ministers discussed on Thursday ways to curb illegal immigration and return more migrants amid a surge in arrivals following lows during the pandemic, Reuters reported. The agency notes that controversial ideas about border fences and centers for asylum seekers outside Europe have been revived. European Commissioner for Internal Affairs Ylva Johansson has rejected the request of Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer for financing the additional construction of the fence along the Bulgarian-Turkish border."

I haven't 'learned' anything from this, other than I am reading that the EU is active now in this border fence dispute. I already know, I think, that the border has German trade union people and German-made fence items. This is one perspective of what is going on at the border between Ankara and Sophia.

What I already know is that the Turks aren't enforcing their side, and yet their army is in all of these other foreign countries.
Why are the Turks allowed to send infantrymen into Syria and the Caucasus region, if they aren't enforcing this border with Bulgaria?
It seems like lawlessness and that the Turkish army is out of control.

Yeah but Princess Kate likes to make babies with William.
The EU is active now in this border dispute between Turkey and Bulgaria.
The Germans export border fence items.
Yeah but Coleen likes making babies with Wayne.

"U.S. Ambassador to Kosovo refused to answer questions" "Ambassador of the United States of America at the so-called Kosovo Jeffrey Hovenier refused to answer journalists' questions about the latest events in Kosovo."
This is the Serbian news.
It seems like Kosovo lets Germany use their airbases and this allows for the Germans to trade though the ports in the Balkans.

"Russian diplomat wants Germany's clarifications on Berlin's status in Ukraine conflict" "Earlier, Germany's Foreign Ministry said providing assistance to Kiev did not make Berlin party to the conflict in Ukraine"

It's about the border between Turkey and Bulgaria.
It seems like the Turks aren't enforcing their side of the border, but they have their army in Syria and maybe the Caucasus region.
Maybe they use German-made items for the border fence.
It could be German labor unions who work at the border.

"Serbia is conditioned" "Within the EU, there are no talks about terminating negotiations with Serbia, said the rapporteur of the European Parliament (EP) for Serbia, Vladimir Bilcik."

What does that mean that this French guy said that about Zelensky?
What does that mean the Russians are auding these oil and gas companies?
It means that the Germans maintain bases or trade unions in Ukraine.
And that the Germans take too much energy for their military.

"Ministry of Energy on agreement with Gazprom: 'Sovereignty is not threatened'"
This is from the Tashkent news. It's more about maybe the Germans are using too much energy for their army. Maybe somehow the Germans use computers and they can steal or whatever gas and oil for their military.

Maybe these are German-made warplanes.
It's not well known about how the Germans are assisting the Ukrainian air force.

They both seem to be friends with the French or the Germans or something.

Zelensky is so strange looking. He wears those t-shirts all of the time.

When it was the Australian Open 2023, you refused to let us just watch the tournament. We spent the whole week writing about ASEAN.
You also don't know what the Schengen agreement is.
You also don't follow funny stuff people say about Zelensky.

Do you know what the Schengen agreement is?
Have you heard similar comments about Zelensky, like this Frenchman is saying?
Are you aware that the Russians say Ukraine isn't behaving as a responsible modern nation-state in terms of providing public services, etc?

"MOSCOW, January 26. /TASS/. Florian Philippot, leader of France's The Patriots political party and former European Parliament member, has called Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky a 'madman' after he asked long-range missiles and warplanes from the West."

Rashidov emphasized that Bulgaria joining the Schengen area would lead to an overall increased security in the EU."
This one is about the EU.
Maybe the Germans want people to join the Schengen agreement.

Maybe the Germans have right wingers in their army.
Maybe the Bundestag knows there are right wingers around.
We're watching to see how people respond to these tanks.
Right?
This one isn't actually an event.
We are slowly, knowing how people are responding to these tanks.
Does that make sense?
This is one example of how people are responding to these German tanks in Ukraine.

"Russian parliament to investigate LUKoil Burgas" This is from the Bulgarian news. Maybe the Germans are taking too much energy for their military. (January 25, 2023)

"The Bulgarian Navy destroyed a floating mine discovered in the Black Sea on January 24, the Defence Ministry said Tuesday. The report of a floating object resembling a sea mine was received at the Navy headquarters at 5:05 pm on January 23 from the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre. The object was sighted 14.8 nautical miles east of Cape Kochan, by a Ukrainian-flagged motor vessel. The Navy's Hydrographic Service issued a navigational mine threat alert to notify ships sailing in Bulgarian maritime spaces."
This one is about a sea mine.
Maybe the Germans build sea mines and give them to Kiev.

"North Korea has ordered a Five-Day Lockdown in Pyongyang" "Authorities in North Korea have ordered a five-day lockdown in the capital Pyongyang due to an increase in cases of an unspecified respiratory illness, Reuters reported, citing a North Korean government statement. It did not mention anything about COVID-19, but said that residents of the capital were required to stay indoors until Sunday and that they should take their temperature several times a day, according to South Korean news portal NK News, which monitors news from the DPRK. Yesterday, South Korean media reported that Pyongyang residents had stocked up on goods in anticipation of tougher measures. It is not clear whether new lockdowns have been imposed in other areas of the country."
This is the Bulgarian news.
It is about North Korea.
Maybe the Germans send radio signals to Pyongyang about weapons tests.
Maybe the Germans send them weaponry.
It's possible both Beijing and Pyongyang use the same police radios.
These are strange domestic policies about the zero-COVID stuff.
Maybe German radio technology makes it possible to have these strange local government everything.
It seems like the zero COVID policies are German-like radio efforts.

They haven't won since then.
The Cowboys keep hiring these quarterbacks from other parts of the country. And they don't come anywhere close to winning.

FRANCE 24's Armenia correspondent Taline Oundjian reports. For the past 40 days, Azerbaijani protesters wielding placards and flags have blocked the Lachin corridor, a 32-kilometre mountainous road that connects Armenia with the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh in the South Caucasus. Day and night, Azerbaijiani protesters demonstrate against the exploitation of natural resources in the region, blocking access to Nagorno-Karabakh and cutting off food, medicine and supplies for its 120,000 Armenian residents. The tiny, mountainous enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh became a self-proclaimed and independent republic during the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. It is internationally recognised as part of Azerbaijan but its population is predominantly Armenian. The blockade risks scuppering the fragile peace process between the two countries, which have fought two wars in the past three decades. Armenia accuses Azerbaijan of being behind the protests, saying the demonstrators are government agitators and that they are sparking an unprecedented humanitarian crisis. But Baku has denied the accusations, saying that Russian peacekeepers closed the road, and that the protesters are concerned about illegal Armenian mining in the area.] (January 21, 2023)

[Turkey cancels Swedish defence minister's visit over protest permit Turkey said on Saturday that it had called off a visit by Sweden's defence minister over a planned anti-Turkey protest in Stockholm. "At this point, Swedish Defence Minister Pal Jonson's visit to Turkey on January 27 has lost its significance and meaning, so we cancelled the visit," Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar said. The Swedish minister visit was aimed at overcoming Ankara's objections to Sweden's bid to join the NATO military alliance. Turkey has been angered by permission obtained by a right-wing extremist to demonstrate later on Saturday in front of the Turkish embassy in the Swedish capital. The Danish-Swedish politician, Rasmus Paludan, whose anti-Islamist actions sparked riots across Sweden last year, has expressed his intention to "burn the Koran", Islam's holy book, during his protest on Saturday. Turkey had on Friday summoned Sweden's ambassador to "condemn this provocative action which is clearly a hate crime -- in strongest terms," a diplomatic source said. This is the second time in more than a week that Sweden's ambassador to Turkey was summoned. Last week, he was called to answer for a video posted by a Kurdish group in Stockholm that depicted President Recep Tayyip Erdogan swinging by his legs from a rope. Sweden, along with neighbouring Finland, needs Turkey's consent to join NATO. Both countries dropped decades of military non-alignment last year when they applied to join the Western defence alliance in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Ankara says any progress depends on Swedish steps to extradite people it accuses of terrorism or of having played a part in the 2016 coup attempt against Erdogan. Turkey argues that Sweden has not done enough to crack down on Kurdish groups that Ankara views as "terrorist."] (January 21, 2023)

[South China Sea: PLA strike group holds live-fire drills after US warships enter region Flotilla led by Chinese-made Shandong aircraft carrier performs 'confrontational exercises' as US Navy carries out training and anti-submarine activities Defence experts say Beijing forced to be vigilant as Lunar New Year approaches because military tensions tend to escalate during festival periods A Chinese aircraft carrier strike group has conducted intensive live-fire drills in the South China Sea since the US Navy sent its USS Nimitz strike group to the area last week. The flotilla is led by the Shandong, China's first domestically built aircraft carrier, and includes a Type 055 stealth guided-missile destroyer and three guided-missile destroyers. The strike group began a series of confrontational drills in the South China Sea last week, the PLA Navy said on its WeChat account on Sunday. Defence experts say that with Lunar New Year approaching, the People's Liberation Army (PLA) is on high alert because the US and China have intensified military confrontations in the region during major festivals. Loaded with dozens of J-15 fighter jets, the Shandong carrier took part in live-fire confrontational exercises, night take-off and landing, emergency response, joint operations between different vessels, damage control and other drills, the Chinese navy said. The drills came as the US Navy's 7th fleet announced on Friday that the USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group had conducted its first routine South China Sea operations of the year, including maritime strike training, flight operations and anti-submarine activities. Zhou Chenming, a researcher at the Beijing-based Yuan Wang military science and technology think tank, said the PLA was forced to be vigilant because in recent years the US military had deployed more aircraft and warships to China's southeastern coast during the Lunar New Year period. The most recent close-in reconnaissance flight was conducted by a US Boeing RC-135 spy plane near the eastern Chinese cities of Shanghai and Qingdao on January 7, he said. "It's very hard for the PLA to predict the US military's motivations for such provocative moves, as the two countries have yet to resolve their differences over the maritime order," Zhou said. Around three weeks ago, the American and Chinese militaries blamed each other after a close call between two PLA J-11 fighter jets and a US spy plane over the South China Sea. Zhou said the US was able to "arbitrarily" perform freedom of navigation exercises and flights in the area because it refused to sign the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, which recognises the waters as part of China's exclusive economic zone. The PLA feared the incursions by US planes and ships could lead to uncertainties and conflicts, he said. While the PLA routinely deploys warships such as destroyers and frigates to watch American carrier strike groups in the region, it was unusual for China to send a carrier-led flotilla, Zhou said. "The Shandong aircraft carrier has routine training tasks this year, but it seems like the PLA Navy decided to send the carrier and its accompanying vessels ahead of its scheduled time to respond to the USS Nimitz's visit to the region." Collin Koh, a research fellow with the maritime security programme at Singapore's Institute of Defence and Strategic Studies, said the increased encounters and engagement between the world's two military powers could be seen as an attempt to avoid escalation. "The US continues its military reconnaissance flights, and in response the Chinese ramp up PLA training, and then this results in the US further keeping close tabs on what the PLA is up to," Koh said. Koh said the close encounters might not help the two militaries improve their understanding, but at least it would help them to form "a rather predictable pattern of tit-for-tat behaviour" in their military engagements. "I don't see how the PLA stepping up training will dissuade the US to cease such missions anyway, since such events would be of huge interest to the Americans' own peacetime preparation for future military conflict," he said. He said it was unlikely that the powers would roll back their activities as that would "signal weakness to each other". However, both sides are trying to prevent their confrontations from escalating into conflicts, which is consistent with the consensus reached during meetings between Chinese President Xi Jinping and his American counterpart Joe Biden, according to Koh. "The crux of the matter is how to engage in such patterns of activities without unduly escalating. I believe this is what Biden is talking about when he mentioned 'common sense guardrails', which would refer to crisis management and stability."]

This is from the South China Morning Post today.
The issue is what the PLA Navy can do when American ships are nearby.
I think it endangers our ships and our sailors for them to do these live fire exercises.

["US House Republicans investigate Biden documents, ask if Hunter had access" "Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives launched an investigation on Friday into the Justice Department's handling of improperly stored classified documents possessed by President Joe Biden, and questioned whether his son, Hunter, had access to any. In a Jan. 13 letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, top Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee said the Justice Department's appointment of Robert Hur as special counsel for the case this week raised "fundamental oversight questions." They demanded all relevant documents and communications between the department, the FBI, the White House and Biden's attorneys. The letter came a day after Biden's legal team acknowledged it had found classified documents relating to his time as vice president in the Obama administration at his Delaware home, including some in his garage. Aides previously found another batch of classified documents at his residence, and at a Washington think tank he was associated with. Earlier on Friday, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer wrote to the White House asking whether Hunter Biden had access to classified documents found at the president's private residence. "It is unclear when the department first came to learn about the existence of these documents, and whether it actively concealed this information from the public on the eve of the 2022 elections," House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan and fellow panel Republican Mike Johnson told Garland in their letter. "We expect your complete cooperation with our inquiry," they wrote, setting a Jan. 27 deadline for compliance. White House and Justice Department officials were not immediately available for comment. The two Republican probes present a distraction for the Democratic president, who has criticized his Republican predecessor Donald Trump's handling of classified material, and could cast a shadow over Biden as both he and Trump gear up for a possible 2024 election rematch. It also provides fodder for House Republicans, who have pledged to focus their new majority on a number of investigations into the Biden administration. In addition to examining Biden's handling of classified documents, Republicans are preparing to probe Hunter Biden's past business dealings in Ukraine. In Comer's letter to the White House, the House Oversight Committee chairman said the home where the documents were found was listed as Hunter Biden's address on his driver's license as recently as 2018. "The Committee is concerned President Biden stored classified documents at the same location his son resided while engaging in international business deals with adversaries of the United States," the letter read. Republicans have sought to compare the investigation of Biden's handling of classified documents to the ongoing probe into how Trump handled classified documents after his presidency. But their cases are not the same, legal experts say. The White House said Biden's attorneys found a small number of classified documents and turned them over after discovery. Trump resisted doing so until an August FBI search turned up about 100 classified documents, raising questions about whether Trump or his staff obstructed the investigation.]

[If it keeps up military aid to Kyiv, Sofia stands "a realistic chance" of acquiring substitute capabilities, National Assembly Defence Committee Chair Hristo Gadjev said in an interview for www.mediapool.bg Monday. Apart from Bulgaria's military aid for Ukraine, he also takes questions about the condition of the Bulgarian Air Force, Armed Forces modernization, and the response to Russia placing investigative journalist Christo Grozev on a wanted list. Aid for Ukraine Asked whether the military assistance that Bulgaria has sent to Ukraine is what this country can spare and what Kyiv expected, Gadjev said that the Defence Ministry probably did not provide everything possible because Parliament's resolution envisages a reserve to be tapped if the allies agree to supply this country with substitute capabilities. In his words, the allies have offered Bulgaria to acquire substitute capabilities and new capabilities, which opens up "realistic opportunities" for replacing the obsolete Soviet materiel by up-to-date and NATO-compatible equipment. "Certainly, these opportunities are contingent on our further support for Ukraine," the MP explained. The interviewee noted that an amendment to the agreement between the Ukrainian and the Bulgarian defence ministries, which has been laid before Parliament and which requires any new consignments of military assistance to be approved by the legislature, will definitely result in a delay and will also give a platform to MPs backing the Russian position and propaganda. "Such actions will also tire the Bulgarian public of the subject and will erode support for the victim in the conflict," said Gadjev. Military Aviation He doubts whether an option which is the most expensive one and which the Defence Ministry prefers - to acquire "substitute" jet fighters after the MiG-29 are grounded - will work. He notes that the "substitute" aircraft will arrive in 2025, i.e. at the same time as the first F-16s. This means that in 2025 the Bulgarian Air Force will have to repair, maintain and man with pilots and ground crews four different platforms: MiG-29, Su-25, F-16, and the new type of "substitute" fighter. This will drain the Ministry's budget and will seriously jeopardize the modernization and even the upkeep of the Armed Forces, he warned. Another option worth exploring is to use the aircraft repair facilities in Western Ukraine, which could handle the engines and other components. Ukraine has staged presentations at the National Assembly and at the Defence Ministry, demonstrating that it is ready and capable of maintaining MiG-29 fighters even in wartime. In parallel with that, the caretaker cabinet is negotiating with Poland on the acquisition of six aircraft engines. An agreement has already been signed on the first two engines, Gadjev said. Modernization He argues that "there are many question marks" about an ambitious programme for the Armed Forces modernization which the caretaker cabinet has tabled in Parliament and which will be considered before the end of January. "When military materiel is purchased, the full capability should be acquired, including command, control, communications and ammunition. Otherwise, money and time will be wasted," Gadjev argued. He believes that, drawing on the lessons learnt from Russia's war in Ukraine, a far greater emphasis should be placed on the special operation forces. "The 3D radars are critical and must not be delayed any longer because they are essential for the full-capacity operation of the new aircraft," the interviewee said. In his opinion, both observation and combat drones should be acquired. Grozev Wanted by Russia Replying to a question, the Defence Committee Chair said that "ultimately, all Bulgarian institutions and the political class reacted appropriately" to Russia placing Bulgarian investigative journalist Christo Grozev on a wanted list. Asked about the Bulgarian response to the conduct of Russian Ambassador in Sofia Eleonora Mitrofanova, Gadjev said: "I hope that she will keep up the good manners, just as all other ambassadors accredited to Bulgaria." Concerning the calls for Mitrofanova's recall, the MP pointed out: "Those who call for Mitrofanova's expulsion from Bulgaria should be aware that this may lead to a practical severance of diplomatic relations with the Russian Federation. So far only Lithuania has expelled the Russian Ambassador and, reciprocally, the Lithuanian Ambassador was expelled by Moscow. Let us think a little bit more beyond emotions."] The Bulgarian news is reporting on Kiev. (January 10, 2023)

[In a Chinese Province, 90% of the Population is Infected with COVID-19 Almost 90% of the residents of China's third most populous province are infected with COVID-19, AFP reported, citing a senior Chinese official. It comes a day after China lifted travel restrictions requiring mandatory quarantine after returning from abroad and reports of heightened demand for tickets and congestion at borders. The director of the Henan Central Provincial Health Commission, said at a press conference that "as of January 6, 2023, the infection rate of COVID-19 in the province, which is located in the central part of eastern China, is 89%." With a population of 99.4 million, the numbers suggest that around 88.5 million people in Henan may have been infected. Visits to fever clinics peaked on Dec. 19, the director said, "and then showed a continuous downward trend." China has been grappling with a surge in cases since its decision last month to scrap its zero-Covid policy, which called for mass testing and the closure of large communities when even single cases of infection are detected. After its three-year implementation, it caused mass protests in major cities, and in early December, the authorities canceled it. After the spread of the epidemic in China and due to the lack of sufficient data on its development, the EU decided to introduce mandatory testing of passengers arriving from China and strengthened controls at airports. Most European countries already apply the restrictions. For now, Bulgaria does not follow the EU's coordinated approach, as the Ministry of Health has only issued recommendations that operators can apply at their discretion.] The Bulgarian news is reporting on Beijing.

["Iran executes two more men detained amid nationwide protests" "Iran said it executed two men Saturday convicted of allegedly killing a paramilitary volunteer during a demonstration, the latest executions aimed at halting the nationwide protests now challenging the country's theocracy. Iran's judiciary identified those executed as Mohammad Karami and Mohammad Hosseini, making it four men known to have been executed since the demonstrations began in September over the death of Mahsa Amini. All have faced internationally criticized, rapid, closed-door trials. The judiciary's Mizan news agency said the men had been convicted of killing Ruhollah Ajamian, a member of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's volunteer Basij Force, in the city of Karaj outside of Tehran on Nov. 3. The Basij have deployed in major cities, attacking and detaining protesters, who in many cases have fought back. Heavily edited footage aired on state television showed Karami speaking before a Revolutionary Court about the attack, which also showed a reenactment of the attack according to prosecutors' claims. Iran's Revolutionary Courts handed down the two other death sentences already carried out. The tribunals don't allow those on trial to pick their own lawyers or even see the evidence against them. Amnesty International has said the trials "bore no resemblance to a meaningful judicial proceeding." State TV also aired footage of Karami and Hosseini talking about the attack, though the broadcaster for years has aired what activists describe as coerced confessions. The men were convicted of the killing, as well as "corruption on Earth," a Quranic term and charge that has been levied against others in the decades since the 1979 Islamic Revolution and carries the death penalty. Activists say at least 16 people have been sentenced to death in closed-door hearings over charges linked to the protests. Death sentences in Iran are typically carried out by hanging. At least 517 protesters have been killed and over 19,200 people have been arrested, according to Human Rights Activists in Iran, a group that has closely monitored the unrest. Iranian authorities have not provided an official count of those killed or detained. The protests began in mid-September, when 22-year-old Amini died after being arrested by Iran's morality police for allegedly violating the Islamic Republic's strict dress code. Women have played a leading role in the protests, with many publicly stripping off the compulsory Islamic headscarf, known as the hijab. The protests mark one of the biggest challenges to Iran's theocracy since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Security forces have used live ammunition, bird shot, tear gas and batons to disperse protesters, according to rights groups.] (January 7, 2023)

The President also reminded that Bulgaria has made substantial investments in the improvement of the protection of its borders and this has been confirmed by all the missions of the European Union.

In his words, Europe cannot afford tens of thousands of unregistered migrants to cross the territory of EU member states.

It's likely the Turkish army cyberattacks, or whatever all three countries in the Caucasus region.
Of course the Armenian genocide of the twentieth century.
Recently there have been reports about Iranian army groups near Damascus.
Maybe the Iranians are also cyberattacking, or whatever the Caucasus region.
The Pahlavi family, they had relatives in Azerbaijan.

Russia used to span fourteen time zones.
There is a list of neighboring countries.
The Caucasus region, it's tempting for the Turks to use those ports.

About the Far Right election in Tel Aviv.
From Washington, DC, often the concern is about what goes between Tel Aviv and East Asia.
And if it's a far right government in Tel Aviv.
Maybe right wingers, or whatever, from East Asia use Israeli ports for trade.
When the Israeli parliament is right wing, maybe that means military stuff is traded to East Asia.

"China stages big military incursion, Taiwan says" "China has staged one of its biggest incursions in the seas and skies around Taiwan, the island's government says. It said that 71 Chinese air force planes, including fighter jets and drones, had entered Taiwan's so-called air defence identification zone. The US said China's military activity was "destabilising" and undermined "regional peace and stability". Taiwan is self-ruled - but China sees it as a breakaway province with which it will eventually reunite. Tensions between the two sides have steadily increased in recent months. In August, Beijing was enraged by a visit to the island by US Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, the most senior US politician to visit Taiwan in 25 years. China responded to that visit by holding what was then its biggest-ever military exercises in the seas around Taiwan, and also blocked some trade with the island. Taiwan's foreign minister Joseph Wu condemned China's action then as highly provocative. China has never said it would not use force to bring Taiwan under its control. On Monday, Taiwan's defence ministry said 43 Chinese aircraft had crossed over the so-called median line, an unofficial buffer separating the two sides inside the air defence zone. China said it had conducted "strike drills" around Taiwan on Sunday in response to what it said was provocation from the island and the US. A White House National Security Council official said the US was concerned by the latest development, adding it would "continue to assist Taiwan in maintaining a sufficient self-defence capability in line with our long-standing commitments and consistent with our one-China policy". Washington has always walked a diplomatic tightrope over the issue of Taiwan. On the one hand it adheres to the one-China policy, a cornerstone of its relationship with Beijing. Under this policy, the US acknowledges that there is only one Chinese government, and has formal ties with Beijing rather than Taiwan. But it also maintains close relations with Taiwan and sells arms to it under the Taiwan Relations Act, which states that the US must provide the island with the means to defend itself."

["UN vote on Israel's occupation 'a victory,' say Palestinians" "The Palestinians on Saturday welcomed a vote by the United Nations General Assembly requesting that the International Court of Justice (ICJ) provide an opinion on the legal consequences of Israel's occupation of the Palestinian territories. The Hague-based ICJ, also known as the World Court, is the top U.N. court dealing with disputes between states. Its rulings are binding, though the ICJ has no power to enforce them. The vote on Friday nonetheless presents a challenge for Israel's incoming Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who took office on Thursday at the head of a hard-right government that includes parties who advocate for occupied West Bank lands to be annexed. Israel captured the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem - areas the Palestinians want for a state - in a 1967 war. Peace talks broke down in 2014. "The time has come for Israel to be a state subject to law, and to be held accountable for its ongoing crimes against our people," Nabil Abu Rudeineh, spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said.] France24 is reporting on Tel Aviv.

"Serbian President Vucic discusses with Patriarch Porfirije situation in Kosovo, Metohija" "The situation in Kosovo and Metohija was still tense, with Serbians in the north of the country remaining at the barricades for the 18th day in a row" "BELGRADE, December 27. /TASS/. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic discussed with Patriarch Porfirije of Serbia the situation in Kosovo and Metohija, the Tanjug news agency reported on Tuesday. The meeting reportedly took place on Monday night after Pristina banned the patriarch from entering the region before Christmas. It was held at the residence of His Holiness. Several Serbian media outlets reported that Vucic had asked Patriarch Porfirije to give his blessing to defend Kosovo and Metohija just like Prince Lazar did before the Battle of Kosovo in 1389. The situation in Kosovo and Metohija was still tense, with Serbians in the north of the country remaining at the barricades for the 18th day in a row. The situation in Kosovo escalated sharply on December 6, when special forces of the unrecognized entity, accompanied by patrols of the European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (EULEX), started to occupy the premises of election commissions in northern Kosovo and Metohija. The Serbian population fought back against the Kosovars, who withdrew across the Ibar River. On December 8, about 350 Kosovo police officers entered the Serb-inhabited north of the province in armored vehicles and blockaded the northern part of Mitrovica. On December 10, the Kosovo police in Mitrovica arrested former Serb policeman Dejan Pantic on spurious charges.

They were spotted in the skies over the western South Korean city of Gimpo at around 10:25 a.m. local time, the military said. A KA-1 light attack aircraft crashed shortly after taking off from its base to counter the drones, a South Korean defense ministry official said. The two pilots managed to leave the plane before it crashed and were taken to hospital.

Flights were suspended for about an hour and airports are now operating again, a ministry official said." The Bulgarian news is reporting on drones. (December 27, 2022)

It's known as the One China perspective.
Maybe obviously Taiwan is a part of China because it's a small island near the Chinese mainland.
Maybe obviously it isn't because it sits on a different seismic plate.
There are historically waves of migrants that move from mainland China to Taiwan.
For example, the Mings and the Republicans were exiled there.

Indonesia has a difficult language about maps and stuff.

[Bishop Gerasim read the Christmas Message by Patriarch Neophyte from the pulpit. "Let us desire, seek, and treasure the peace the Lord brought to earth by His birth as man, and let us not forget that, though at odds with our Lord and Creator from the very beginning of our existence, 'while we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son' (Rm 5:10)," Patriarch Neophyte said in his message. "Today, when our world continues to be torn apart by internecine strife and controversy, when goodwill among men is increasingly giving way to enmity and intolerance of the other, when military conflicts as a means of settling our disputes are not only not diminishing but are assuming ever more threatening proportions and are ruining millions of human destinies, we have again the only true hope, and that is our faith and our trust in God's goodness and God's all-forgiving love. That love which led God Himself to take on human nature, to enter our world and live among us as man; which led Him to the Cross and the crucifixion, to suffering and death, and even to the abyss of hell, in order thus to accomplish our redemption and salvation," the Patriarch stressed and extended his Nativity greetings.] This is the Bulgarian Christmas message.

[Kremlin accuses US of using Ukraine as battleground to weaken Russia Russia on Thursday accused Kyiv and Washington of turning a deaf ear to its concerns and charged the United States was using Ukraine as a battleground to weaken Russia.

"We will seek to make sure that it all ends, and the sooner, the better." "All conflicts end, some way or another, with talks... The faster our adversaries (in Kyiv) understand that, the better it will be," Putin said. Moscow's military chief has said Russian forces are now concentrated on wresting control of the eastern Donetsk region where the battered city of Bakhmut has become an epicenter of fighting. fficials in Moscow have repeatedly said in recent months that they have not ruled out talks with Ukraine. They blamed the closure of diplomatic channels on President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who has said he will not negotiate while Putin is in power.

"Taiwan scrambles jets to warn away Chinese air force incursion" "TAIPEI: Taiwan scrambled combat jets to warn away 39 Chinese aircraft that entered its southeastern air defence zone, the island's defence ministry said on Thursday (Dec 22). Taiwan has complained of repeated missions by the Chinese air force over the last two years, often in southern areas of its air defence identification zone, or ADIZ. Thursday's incursion included 21 fighters and four H-6 bombers, as well as early warning, antisubmarine and aerial refuelling aircraft, Taiwan's defence ministry said in a report detailing Chinese activities in its ADIZ over the last 24 hours. Many of the aircraft flew over a waterway known as the Bashi Channel to an area off the island's southeastern coast, according to a map provided by the ministry. Three Chinese navy ships were also detected near Taiwan, the ministry said. Taiwan sent unspecified combat aircraft to warn away the Chinese planes, while missile systems monitored their flight, the ministry said, using standard wording for its response. Separate Taiwan government notices have said the defence ministry's research and development arm, the National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology, is holding a missile firing drill this week on the island's southeastern coast. China, which claims Taiwan as its own, has stepped up pressure in recent years on the self-governed island to accept Beijing's rule. Taiwan's government rejects the Chinese claims and says it wants peace but will defend itself if attacked."

'Myanmar junta foreign minister meets some ASEAN counterparts at 'informal' Thai meeting' 'BANGKOK: Three Southeast Asian foreign ministers and a regional envoy tasked with solving the Myanmar crisis met with the junta's top diplomat at an "informal" meeting in Thailand on Thursday (Dec 22), the Thai government said. The meeting came shortly after the United Nations Security Council adopted its first resolution on Myanmar, demanding "an immediate end to all forms of violence". The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has led diplomatic efforts to resolve the turmoil that has gripped Myanmar since the military seized power last year. There has, however, been little progress on a "five-point consensus" agreed with the junta in April 2021, which calls for an immediate end to violence and dialogue between the military and the anti-coup movement. There was "candid and constructive" discussion between the foreign ministers of Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia, Thai foreign ministry spokesperson Kanchana Patarachoke said. "This included the opportunity to hear from Myanmar and to exchange views on finding the exit strategy and pathways towards a return to normalcy in Myanmar," she said. The meeting touched on facilitating humanitarian assistance, Kanchana said, as well as "exploring other approaches that could support the implementation of the Five-Point Consensus".'

'North Korea sold arms to Russia's Wagner group: United States' 'WASHINGTON: North Korea has delivered arms to Russia's private military group Wagner, the White House said Thursday (Dec 22), calling the group a "rival" for power to the defence and other ministries in the Kremlin. The US will boost sanctions on the Wagner group following North Korea's sale to the group of infantry rockets and missiles last month, in violation of UN Security Council resolutions, said White House national security spokesman John Kirby. "Wagner is searching around the world for arms suppliers to support its military operations in Ukraine," Kirby told reporters. "We can confirm that North Korea has completed an initial arms delivery to Wagner, which paid for that equipment," he said. Kirby said the Wagner group, which is independent of the Russian defense establishment and is leading a bloody siege of Bakhmut, Ukraine, is spending more than US$100 million each month in its Ukraine operations. "Wagner is emerging as a rival power center to the Russian military and other Russian ministries," Kirby said. "SIGN OF DESPERATION" In a statement, British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly said the UK concurs with the American assessment that North Korea delivered arms to Russia for the Wagner group in violation of UN resolutions. "The fact that President Putin is turning to North Korea for help is a sign of Russia's desperation and isolation," Cleverly said. "We will work with our partners to ensure that North Korea pays a high price for supporting Russia's illegal war in Ukraine." The Wagner group is controlled by Yevgeny Prigozhin, a businessman once called "Putin's chef" for his work catering dinners for Vladimir Putin before and after he became the Russian president.

'Hong Kong court rejects bid to terminate sedition trial of Stand News' HONG KONG: A Hong Kong Court on Thursday (Dec 22) rejected an application to terminate a sedition trial against now-defunct online media outlet Stand News, a case that could see two former top editors jailed if convicted. Former editors Chung Pui-kuen, 53, and Patrick Lam, 35, and the outlet's parent company, Best Pencil (Hong Kong), have been charged with conspiracy to publish seditious material related to news articles and commentaries between July 2020 and December last year. They have pleaded not guilty and are free on bail. Sedition is punishable by a maximum two years jail. Defence lawyers Audrey Eu and David Ma applied to terminate the proceedings arguing the National Security Department had improperly handled evidence related to scores of additional articles prosecutors have cited as seditious since the trial began. But District Court Judge Kwok Wai-kin said the defence could not prove that the prosecution had failed to disclose relevant material in a way that would compromise the fairness of the trial, or would "abuse the court procedures in future hearings". Stand News was forced to shut and took down all their online content after police raided its office and arrested seven former editorial staff and board members in December 2021. Hong Kong's government has said press freedom is enshrined in the city's mini-constitution, the Basic Law.

"Investigation Into Death of Bulgarian Border Police Officer Is At Advanced Stage, Turkish Court Is Yet to Rule" "The investigation into the death of the Bulgarian border policeman Petar Bachvarov, who was shot at the Bulgarian-Turkish border, is in an advanced stage and a court ruling in Turkey is pending, Interior Ministry Secretary General Petar Todorov told journalists. He received the information in his meetings late last week with the Turkish authorities. Most likely, the sentence in the case will be served on Turkish territory, Todorov assumed. The Border Police officer, Sergeant Petar Bachvarov, was killed on November 7 while patrolling the border with Turkiye, near the village of Golyam Dervent. Two days later, the Turkish authorities arrested two brothers, one of whom confessed to shooting at Bachvarov from Turkish territory through a chink in the border fence. Turkiye will build a monument to Bachvarov, it emerged during a visit by Bulgarian National Assembly Chair Vezhdi Rashidov earlier this week.
