China's Xi to meet Putin next week in first visit to Russia since invasion of Ukraine

Source: CNN

Chinese leader Xi Jinping will fly to Moscow next week to meet with President Vladimir Putin in his first visit to Russia since Putin launched his devastating invasion of Ukraine more than a year ago.

The visit will be seen as a powerful show of Beijingís support for Moscow in Western capitals, where leaders have grown increasingly wary of the two nationsí deepening partnership as war rages in Europe.

It will also be Xiís first foreign trip since securing an unprecedented third term as president at the annual meeting of Chinaís rubber-stamp legislature last week.

The face to face was revealed on Friday by statements from both Beijing and the Kremlin.

1. We MUST stop sending 100s of billons to China to use against us

I dont know what legislation can be proposed to "help" businesses make the decision to move elsewhere but SOMETHING needs to be done. And I think a enough of the GOP House would go along with it since theyre always screaming about China.

5. Constantly threatening Taiwan, an independent country, is detrimental to us.

Claiming sovereignty over other countries territorial waters is a threat to us. Building islands in water that are NOT Chinese territory is a threat to us. Without our money the the EUs money, they'd never be able to do all these things. Its LONG past time to move mfg OUT of china to friendlier NON-COMMUNIST countries.
Wake up and learn how the world economy works.

4. The West has been very slow to understand the plans Xi and Putin have cooked up.

Xi and Putin want to be the dominant global force in the 21st century.

Of course Putin has screwed up things so Xi has the upper hand now.

Whatever help Xi gives to Putin, Xi will expect something in return.
The very fact Xi has stood by Putin means Putin owes Xi big time.

Oh to be a fly on the wall during their meeting.
