'Time to bring back order': Carrie Lam denounces Hong Kong protests


#HongKong chief executive #CarrieLam has called for #stability after another weekend of chaotic protests that rocked the special administrative region, saying: 'The govt will be resolute in maintaining #law and order in Hong Kong.' The #Beijing -backed chief executive refused to resign in her first #media appearance in two weeks.

Meeting between #US' president Donald #Trump and #China's Xi #Jinping ahead


The meeting would take place after a summit between Drumpf and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and just before the March 2 deadline for a U.S.-China trade deal. However, the U.S. is concerned about the optics of a deal being announced on Chinese soil. The U.S. also wants prior commitments from China. Allies like Japan and South Korea are also worried about back-to-back meetings with nondemocratic leaders and would want to be briefed afterward.

#China's leader Xi Jinping intends to annex #Taiwan


“We make no promise to renounce the use of force and reserve the option of taking all necessary means,” he said, adding that the issue is China’s internal affair and that it would permit “no external interference”.

I am frightened to think what he is planning.

Xi reiterated that China was willing to talk with any party in Taiwan to push the political process – stalled by China since Tsai took office – as long as they accepted the “one China” principle.

Why the sudden interest in annexing the only free and independent China? I don't get it. Is this some kind of igniting the patriotic fire in the Chinese people? Who knows. Maybe it's a resolution Xi planned to not keep on, just as everyone's New Year resolution is being kept.
