    China says it will work with Russia to create new international order

    A top Chinese official said that his country will continue its partnership with Russia in the hopes of creating a new international order that will rival western influence.

    CNN
    In a 5,000-word joint statement, the two leaders declared a friendship with “no limits” and spelled out their shared grievances toward the United States and its allies.

    “The world is going through momentous changes,” their joint statement said, noting the “transformation of the global governance architecture and world order.”

    More than 200 days later, Xi and Putin are to meet again at a regional summit in the city of Samarkand in southeastern Uzbekistan. Much has changed, but not necessarily in ways China or Russia could have predicted."

    An anti-West world order?
    Xi’s trip to Central Asia isn’t only about showing support for Putin, though. It is also about strengthening ties in China’s periphery and reasserting Beijing’s global influence.

    And this bit highlights how the two are not allies, but merely two predators whose interests temporarily align in similar fashion to the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact.

    Scary. Maybe not too smart of Xi, either.

    Thinking about it...Putin might lie awake at night these days. He has spent an awful lot of his military strength in Ukraine. Russia and China have not always been the best of friends. Suppose Xi sees an opportunity.

    My guess is that it will look something like the Xi regime "helping its ally" by providing troops to safeguard economically important sites in Siberia and ensuring state-run firms maintain operations of those sites "in cooperation with Gazprom".

    As I said. Xi might see an opportunity.

    If I'm not mistaken, Iran is joining too.
