A recent Chinese military training guideline tries to close gap between today's Chinese troops and the rapid move toward advanced weapons systems. Unlike Russian and American defense forces, China's military has not seen real combat since the 1980s, leading to a lack of warfare knowledge. A military insider said that more than 70% of the document was based on US military guidelines for joint operations. Military observers and an insider said a lack of real combat talent remained a serious barrier to meeting those challenges. But his experience could be dated to four decades ago," said a military insider, who requested anonymity, referring to Gen. Li Zuocheng, chief of the PLA Joint Staff Department.

President Donald Trump suggested on Fox Business that several world leaders have supported his unsubstantiated claims of election fraud. Numerous world leaders have congratulated and recognized Joe Biden as the president-elect, almost immediately after the race was called for him. Immediately after Joe Biden was declared the winner of the presidential race, several world leaders either made contact with or congratulated him on his victory. In an interview given just a few days ago, Putin called Biden a "candidate" despite clear election results indicating he's the winner. That lack of confidence appears to have permeated his relations with world leaders, who acknowledged Biden as the victor much earlier than Trump.

China is more concerned by Biden than Trump, economist Jim O'Neill says

LONDON — Joe Biden's presidency will be a bigger problem for the Chinese government than the four years of the Donald Trump administration, economist Jim O'Neill told CNBC's "Squawk Box Europe" on Friday. Trump took a different approach to U.S.-China relations by unilaterally imposing tariffs on Beijing. "It is my impression that the Chinese are more concerned by a Biden administration than a Trump administration," said O'Neill, a former chief economist at Goldman Sachs and now the chair of U.K. think tank Chatham House, suggesting that the Biden team has "stronger philosophical beliefs" on key issues. However, the U.S.'s climate ambitions changed with Trump, and that pressure on China to step up its efforts on emissions cooled somewhat. "In a strange way it might be already forcing China to think a little bit differently," O'Neill said about the impact of the U.S. election on China.

China was for decades one of the world's most impoverished countries and ending absolute poverty has been an important policy goal for Xi. In the face of this decline, Xi's poverty alleviation policies have focused on the countryside. As part of this policy, Beijing has worked to end absolute poverty in 832 "impoverished" counties across China since at least 2014. State-run television station CGTN celebrated on its website that China had ended absolute poverty "one month before (its) self-imposed deadline." Xinhua also appeared to contradict itself by quoting Xia Gengsheng, deputy director of China's Poverty Alleviation Office, as saying work to end poverty wasn't "fully completed."

SEOUL (Reuters) - The foreign ministers of South Korea and China pledged on Thursday to work together to advance bilateral ties and tackle regional and global issues including stalled nuclear talks involving North Korea and the coronavirus pandemic. “The COVID-19 crisis could not defeat the citizens of our two countries,” he told Kang at the start of the meeting, through an interpreter. Xi’s trip had been expected early this year but was postponed by the pandemic disrupting the diplomatic calendar. Wang is also scheduled to pay a courtesy call on President Moon Jae-in, among other officials. Wang is the second senior Chinese diplomat to visit South Korea since the coronavirus emerged in China late last year, following an August trip by Yang Jiechi, a member of the Communist Party Politburo.

SINGAPORE — China has accused India of discriminatory practices that violate World Trade Organization rules after New Delhi banned another 43 Chinese mobile apps. New Delhi issued an order on Tuesday to block those apps, claiming they engaged in activities that threatened India's national security. "This action was taken based on the inputs regarding these apps for engaging in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order," India's information technology ministry said. The affected apps include short-video streaming app Snack Video, which has reportedly dominated the charts in terms of downloads in recent months. Other banned apps include Alibaba's e-commerce platform AliExpress, streaming app Taobao Live and workplace messaging app DingTalk, as well as delivery app Lalamove India and a handful of dating sites.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has congratulated President-elect Joe Biden, state media reported on Wednesday, becoming one of the last world leaders to do so. Xi's message to Biden comes just days after the Trump administration officially authorized the Biden transition after weeks of delay, even as Trump's legal team is continuing its fight to overturn the results of the election. Xi congratulated Trump on Nov. 9, 2016 — within a day of his being declared the winner. "I attach great importance to Sino-U.S. relations and look forward to working with you," Xinhua news agency reported Xi saying at the time. But while Trump's rhetoric toward China has turned sour, Biden may be ready to take a tough line, having previously referred to Xi as a "thug."

The Mexican president said he had nothing against any candidate or political party in the U.S. electoral process. The Mexican president said some in his security cabinet suggested in a meeting on Tuesday that it was time to recognize Biden.

TOKYO (Reuters) - Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi will meet Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga on Wednesday, marking Beijing’s first high-level contact with Japan’s new leader. Japan and China agreed to resume coronavirus-hit business travel this month and to continue talks on disputed isles in the East China Sea. The two-day visit by China’s foreign minister comes amid growing concerns over Beijing’s assertiveness in the region. While Japan’s security strategy is grounded on its alliance with the United States, it has also pursued economic interests through trade with China, its top trading partner. But he reiterated concerns over China’s continuing activity in East China Sea and expressed a worry about political developments in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong (CNN) Foreign religious groups and worshipers could be the latest targets of a growing crackdown on organized religion in China under President Xi Jinping. Many faiths not officially recognized by the government -- Mormonism, Judaism, Quakers -- are able to operate in China, provided the only worshippers are foreign citizensSensitivity over foreign religious groups remains strong, however. "What Pope Francis said about the Uyghurs is totally groundless," Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said in a regular briefing Tuesday. "The regulations look like an effort to seal off Chinese religious practitioners from their fellow believers outside the country. Previously there has been broad tolerance for foreigners preaching to foreigners, provided they are officially licensed and ensure no Chinese citizens attend services.

A handful of world leaders — from Russia, Brazil, and Mexico — have still not congratulated Biden. Chinese President Xi Jinping extended his congratulations to President-elect Joe Biden on Wednesday, more than two weeks after he was widely declared the projected winner of the 2020 US presidential election.

TRADEWhile encouraging its companies to diversify supply chains away from China, Japan is getting closer with Beijing through trade agreements. Wang will fly to South Korea after Japan, for talks that will include North Korea. The United States, a key security backer of Japan and South Korea, is going through a drawn-out leadership transition to new president-elect Joe Biden. Experts said Wang’s diplomacy could help lay the groundwork for a trilateral summit with Japan and South Korea to push forward trade partnerships.

TAIPEI, Taiwan — President Trump has made cultivating closer ties with Taiwan a critical part of his efforts to counter China’s rising influence. He has significantly increased weapons sales to Taiwan’s military, vowed to step up economic cooperation, and generally bolstered relations with the self-ruled democratic island — even in his waning days. His successor, President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr., will most likely continue on a similar path, albeit without Mr. Trump’s characteristic pugnacity. As concerns grow about China’s increasingly aggressive behavior on the global stage, Mr. Biden will face pressure from Democrats and Republicans to strengthen ties with Taiwan, which Beijing considers part of its territory. While Mr. Biden said little about Taiwan on the campaign trail, he has said the United States should get “tough with China” and described its top leader, Xi Jinping, as a “thug.” His transition team has already reached out to Taiwanese officials.
