Blinken’s Xi Jinping meeting fails to answer’s China’s questions



U.S. Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, seeks to keep communication open between the two world powers

U.S. Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, has just concluded a high-stakes visit to China where he met with the country’s President, Xi Jinping.

The meeting took place against a backdrop of heightened tensions between the world’s two largest economies over concerns of spying, national security and military escalations over the state of Taiwan.

However, the two parties left the meeting agreeing that the world depends on a generally stable U.S.-China relationship.

Xi said that the two countries must get along to secure the future and destiny of humanity.

CNBC’s Paulina Likos said it was a positive step for the two countries.

“It shows both countries are showing their commitment to resolve their disagreements, both are looking for ways to cooperate with one another,” she said.

“This visit also shows a peaceful meeting between two global powers when there is so much tension geo-politically.”

The trip was originally meant to take place in January this year but was postponed due to concerns over the Chinese spy balloon that was shot down over the U.S. in the weeks prior.

Blinken now becomes the highest-level American official to visit China in five years.

The Biden official spoke directly to the issue of Taiwan during the trip, which has been an issue central to the rising military tensions between the two powers and in the Asia Pacific region more broadly.

“On Taiwan, I reiterated the long-standing China policy, that policy has not changed,” Blinken said during the visit.

“[The U.S. does] not support Taiwan independence, we remain opposed to any unilateral changes to the status quo by either side. We continue to expect the peaceful resolution of cross-strait differences.”

The U.S. hopes the Blinken trip will open the door to a meeting in November between President Joe Biden and Xi Jinping.

Russian women want their men back from Ukraine



In a heartfelt plea, Russian women have taken to the streets demanding the safe return of their loved ones from the Ukrainian front.

The conflict in Ukraine has stretched on for years, and the toll on families has been immense. Mothers, wives, sisters, and daughters are uniting to call for an end to the fighting and the return of their men.

The women, often referred to as the “mothers of the front,” are growing increasingly frustrated with the ongoing conflict. They argue that their husbands, sons, and brothers have been away for far too long, and the human cost of the war is simply too high.

With no clear resolution in sight, their calls for peace and reconciliation are becoming more urgent.

This grassroots movement has sparked a national conversation in Russia, with many questioning the government’s handling of the conflict.

While the official stance has been to support the separatist forces in Ukraine, these women are highlighting the personal tragedies and broken families left in the wake of the war. Their determination to bring their loved ones home is palpable.

The situation raises important questions about the impact of long-term conflicts on families, the role of women in peace movements, the government’s response to public sentiment, and the prospects for a peaceful resolution in the ongoing Ukraine conflict.
