China's Vice Foreign Minister blames NATO for war in Ukraine

Source: Axios

China's vice foreign minister on Saturday blamed NATO for the war in Ukraine and criticized the West's sanctions against Russia, AP reports.

Driving the news: Le Yucheng speaking at a conference in Beijing called NATO a "Cold War vestige," warning that its expansion could cause "repercussions too dreadful to contemplate," per AP.

"Sanctions against Russia are now going to such lengths that globalization is used as a weapon, even people from the sports, cultural, art and entertainment communities are not spared," he also said.
The big picture: Le's remarks come one day after President Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping spoke about the war, with Biden describing "the implications and consequences if China provides material support to Russia," according to a White House readout of the call.

China has not publicly condemned or defended Russia's invasion of Ukraine, but Chinese officials and state media have largely put the blame on the U.S. and the West, Axios' Dave Lawler reports.

House passes act calling for renaming Taiwan office in US

Source: Taiwan News

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill on Friday (Feb. 4) urging a change of name of Taiwan’s representative office in the U.S. as the two countries enhance their partnership.

The America COMPETES Act of 2022 was passed by a vote of 222-210, which marks a step towards the Biden administration’s objective to sharpen the U.S.’ competitive edge against China while bolstering its manufacturing sector, in particular the semiconductor industry.

A significant proportion of the bill is dedicated to promoting closer ties with Taiwan, including advocating the renaming of the "Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office (TECRO)," the de facto Taiwan embassy. It asks relevant authorities to start negotiations to change the office’s name to the “Taiwan Representative Office in the United States,” as it’s the policy of Washington to “refer to Taiwan as Taiwan, not Taipei or Chinese Taipei,” it stated.

i wonder what China is going to do.

it figures that none of the gop in the house voted for this...

the senate passed a similar one, so these two will be worked on and go to President Biden to sign.

Jon Stewart sides with Joe Rogan as more artists leave Spotify: 'This overreaction is a mistake'

“I’m more worried about the algorithm of misinformation than the purveyor of misinformation,” he added. “Misinformation will always be out there, but if the algorithm drives people further and further down the rabbit hole, the algorithm is the amplifier and the catalyst of extremism.”

i don't know , he made some good points, but then again , i think it is waste of money anyway when you can steal music for free.
