Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Warns of Increasing Pressure on North Korea

Translation as follows:

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang criticised the West for putting pressure on China to solve the North Korean nuclear issue alone, when speaking in Beijing, Friday.

Geng Shuang, Foreign Ministry spokesperson (Mandarin): "In this critical moment, UN Security Council is holding Ministerial Open Conference. All the sides should fully discuss how to relieve this tension, how to maintain peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula, how to carry the propose of denuclearization in Peninsula forward and how to finally solve the 'nuclear issue' in the Peninsula. If these talks only focus on further sanctions and stepping up pressure, I think we will lose a great opportunity and it will aggravate the opposition of different sides and ideas. It probably will break all previous efforts of promoting peace."

Geng Shuang, Foreign Ministry spokesperson (Mandarin): "I want to emphasise once again: China is not at the centre of the North Korea's nuclear issue. China is not the pusher for further tensions in the Korean Peninsula. China doesn’t hold the key to solve North Korea's nuclear issue at present. Solving the North Korea's nuclear issue has to rely on collective intelligence and joint effort from all sides. China hopes relevant parties will play proper roles and take their responsibilities. We need to work together to maintain peace in the Korean Peninsula and Asia." 

Geng Shuang, Foreign Ministry spokesperson (Mandarin): "In North Korea's nuclear issue, China and Russia have similar standpoint. Our perspective and opinion are similar as well. I think Russia has played a positive role in solving the nuclear issue in long term. In next stage, we will increase the communication and cooperation with Russia and other relevant parties. We wish nuclear issue in north Korea will be solved via talk and negotiation in a peaceful way."

Hundreds of Civilian Casualties in Western Mosul Blamed on Coalition Airstrikes - On March 17, U.S.-led international coalition warplanes carried out airstrikes on a suspected ISIS location in the al-Jadida neighborhood of western Mosul. The airstrikes leveled multiple buildings, and likely caused the deaths of an estimated 101 to 263 civilians. Both Iraq’s Defense Minister Irfan Hiyali and U.S. Central Command have ordered inquiries into the incident. On March 28, Lt. General Stephen Townsend, commander of Operation Inherent Resolve, told reporters that “if we did it - and there is a fair chance that we did - it was an unintentional accident of war, and we will transparently report it to you when we’re ready.” A sharp rise in civilian casualties in Mosul has outraged several Iraqi politicians and members of the public - most of whom do not accept an alternative narrative circulating in…

Christopher Hitchens: Answers Why He Preached Against the Theocracy Belief System

Brilliant! Mr. Hitchens just gave voice to what I sincerely believe, but couldn't verbalize.

I was raised in one of those Plymouth Brethren Christian homes, where belief in the End of Times, especially the book of Revelations in the Bible was preached daily. One can't be saved by good deeds, but by being a Born Again Christian for the coming Rapture and End of Times.


As far as I'm concerned, that belief system is no different than the WahabiMuslim belief system. They both can go to hell! Evil is right!

Events in Iraq for the Week September 23-29 2016

As listed on the ISHM (Iraqi Security & Humanitarian Monitor) web siteKirkuk Reported to be Forcing Returns of IDPs without Explanation as Conditions in Hawija Worsen  According to the UNHCR, officials in Kirkuk have pressed nearly 8,000 IDPs to depart the province since the beginning of September--allegations that the Kirkuk Provincial Council denies. At least 30 of these expelled families are living on the outskirts of farming villages north of Baquba in Diyala Province without access to adequate food, water, or medical care. The reason for the expulsions is under investigation after an agreement was reached between a Parliamentary Delegation and the Governor of Kirkuk, Najmaddin Karim, to allow the continued presence of IDPs in Kirkuk until the end of the year. Meanwhile, Iraqi Security Forces remain hesitant to clear Hawija (a city of about 100 thousand in Kirkuk Province) of ISIS militants despite deteriorating humanitarian conditions.
