Australia has harshly attacked a Chinese diplomat who has been critical of the upcoming nuclear-powered submarine market.

The Australia ridiculed the statements made by senior Chinese diplomat, who warned Canberra for its plan to buy at least eight nuclear-powered submarines from the US, commenting that his statements are "so stupid that it's funny."

The commissioner of the Chinese embassy in Canberra, Wang Xining, estimated that Australia would become a "bad kid" if it acquired these submarines, which have more autonomy and are more difficult to locate than conventional ones.

According to Wang in an interview with the British newspaper The Guardian, everyone knows that these submarines "are designed to launch attacks (…) against targets that are far away".

"Who will you attack? "You no longer love peace, you are no longer defenders of peace."

Wang, who serves as ambassador, also said that Australia "has zero technological capabilities from a technological point of view, which could ensure that no accidents occur".

"And if something happens, are politicians ready to apologize to the people of Melbourne and Adelaide?" He asked.

Australian Defense Secretary Peter Dutton called Wang's statements "provocative and comical" and "completely stupid to the point of being funny".

"The caretaker ambassador is probably reading the Communist Party script, but I think most Australians understand the unproductive nature of his comments," he added.

In September, Australia announced the cancellation of a huge contract for the purchase of conventional submarines from France, worth 55 billion euros, preferring nuclear-powered submarines from the US, after signing a cooperation agreement with Washington and London for the Indo-Aegean region. the AUKUS.

The deal has angered China and France, with Paris discovering at the last minute that Australia was secretly negotiating a deal with the United States and Britain and that it would cancel a deal to buy French submarines.

In his interview, Wang also warned Australian politicians against any action that could "damage our relations", after Dutton pointed out that Canberra may support the US if they help Taiwan in a possible confrontation with China.

The tension, mainly in the trade sector, has not stopped escalating between Australia and China since 2018 and has resulted in the freezing for two years of bilateral, diplomatic relations at the highest level.

China: International outcry over disappearance of tennis player denouncing rape - WTA Ultimatum


Ultimatum of the Women's Tennis Federation of China on the disappearance of Swai Peng after she was reported for rape. #WhereIsPengShuai Athletes from around the world ask China.

The thriller continues with the disappearance of Chinese tennis player Suai Peng after she was accused of rape by a former vice president of the Chinese government.

The case has sparked international outcry, with the Women's Tennis Federation (WTA) issuing an ultimatum to China and threatening to block it. At the same time, the sports world shows its anxiety through social media with the hashtag #WhereIsPengShuai.

Ultimatum from the Women's Tennis Federation in China
The WTA warns that it will suspend all cooperation with China as it is ready to expel it from all tournaments unless there are adequate responses to Peng Shui's allegations of sexual assault by the former Chinese Deputy Prime Minister, the chief executive said. of the WTA, Steve Simon in the American media.

"We are at a crossroads in our relations with China. It is a pity because we have done great things there and the country brings out new talented athletes. But there are too many times in our world where we let business, politics, money dictate what When we have a person who has the courage to make these complaints and we can not support it and seek justice, we must make decisions that have to do with what is right. "tournament in China and to handle all the procedures that will arise," said Simon, who stressed that efforts have been made to contact Peng's relatives, but no one comes out to speak.

The UN is asking for proof that the tennis player is fine
The United Nations has demanded evidence that Chinese tennis champion Peng Shui, who went missing in early November after accusing a former high-ranking official of forcing her to have sex, is OK.

"It would be important to have proof of where he is and to know if he is OK. "And we urge that all allegations of sexual assault be carried out in a transparent manner," said Liz Trossell, a spokeswoman for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, during a press conference in Geneva.

"We demand an investigation with all transparency. "This should be done with all allegations of sexual assault," she said, adding that "sexual assaults exist in all societies."

Peng Shui, 35, accused former Chinese Deputy Prime Minister Zhang Gaoli - who was one of China's seven most powerful politicians from 2013 to 2018 - on social media that he forced her to have sex three years ago and then he made her his mistress.

"We want to emphasize that it is important to know where he is and in what condition he is and to know how he is doing," Trossel repeated.

For the past few days, world tennis personalities have been expressing their concern about Peng Shui on Twitter, with the hashtag #WhereIsPengShuai.

Chinese censorship has erased the slightest trace of the tennis player's accusations on social media. The post that was originally made on Weibo (the Chinese equivalent of Twitter) was quickly deleted and the French Agency could not verify its authenticity.

Since then, the tennis player has not communicated directly or appeared in public.

The chronicle of the case
On Chinese social media Weibo, Swai, who won the Roland Garros double in 2014, claimed on Tuesday (2/11) that three years ago, she had forced sexual intercourse with former Chinese Deputy Prime Minister Zhang Gaoli. at the house of the politician, located in the city of Tianjin.

However, this testimony was immediately deleted from the Chinese censorship, as well as the reactions to the issue, which spread like wildfire on the internet, as searches for both Swai and Gaoli on Weibo are blocked in the Baidu search engine.

It is worth noting that since 2018 in China and on the occasion of the MeToo movement, there have been several cases of sexual harassment by music and television stars, but none related to politics.

Gaoli, who is 75 years old, was until the beginning of 2018 a permanent member of the political bureau of the Chinese Communist Party and therefore one of the seven most powerful men in China.

"I was very scared. That afternoon I refused at first. I kept crying. "Out of fear and confusion, I gave in and we had sex," Swai, 35, wrote in her message, revealing that Zhang's wife knew what was happening right outside the room.

Swai added that until last week she remained Gaoli's mistress, while clarifying that she has no evidence to prove her allegations, stressing in a way addressed to Gaoli: "They are always afraid that I would hide a tape recorder. You will definitely deny it or you will get to the point of attacking me. "

Germany: Unvaccinated Greek travelers in a 10-day quarantine

Germany: Unvaccinated Greek travelers in a 10-day quarantine


As of next Sunday, Greece and three other European countries are classified as "high risk" for Germany. General lockdown in Bavaria.

The data for travelers who want to visit Germany are changing . As of Sunday (21/11), Greece, the Netherlands, Belgium and Ireland are classified as "high risk areas", according to an announcement by the Robert Koch Institute.

Due to the increase in coronavirus cases , anyone arriving in Germany from the above countries and not having a Covid-19 vaccination certificate or recovery from the disease will have to remain in quarantine for 10 days.

However, he will be able to take a test after the 5th day and, if it is negative, he will be released from the obligation to stay in confinement.

The rule also applies to children, but in the case of persons under 12 years of age, the quarantine ends automatically after the 5th day, without the obligation of the test.

In addition, those who are going to travel to Germany from a "high risk" country, will have to fill in a digital document, in which they will enter their certificate (vaccination, recovery, diagnostic test).

General lockdown in Bavaria
In a general lockdown for areas particularly affected by the coronavirus, "de facto lockdown for the unvaccinated" and extensive restrictions across the state, Bavaria proceeds from the middle of next week for three weeks, canceling all open-air Christmas, among other things. shopping and closing bars and clubs.

"We are blocking, slowing down, strengthening," is the slogan of the day, Bavarian Prime Minister Marcus Zeder said recently, justifying the government's decisions by referring to the dramatic situation in the region's hospitals and the extremely low vaccination rate.

Especially for the areas of Bavaria that are considered outbreaks of coronavirus, Mr. Zender announced a "hard emergency brake". Only kindergartens and schools, retail (at the condition of one customer per 20 sq.m.), nursing homes and rehabilitation centers will continue their operation with diagnostic tests. In these areas, restaurants, sports and cultural facilities will be closed, and meetings of up to five people from up to two households will be allowed, excluding children under 12 years old. "These measures affect the whole Alpine region," he explained.

As for the rest of the state, from now on sporting and cultural events will only be allowed on a much smaller scale, with only 25% of the maximum capacity and the 2G + Rule (access only to vaccinated and recovering people, who will have additionally undergone a diagnostic test). The curfew returns from 22:00 and all clubs and bars, except for the Christmas markets, close immediately.

The fourth wave of the pandemic hitting the country is worse and more semicircular. As a result, its impact is very serious and the beds in the Intensive Care Units are occupied one after the other. "One thing is clear: the risk and challenge for Bavaria comes from the vaccination gap," Zender said, adding that 90% of ICU patients are unvaccinated.

The Bavarian prime minister has made it clear that his government intends to use all legal means and to impose as many restrictions as possible, noting that a general lockdown - even for vaccinated people - is in his view legally difficult and possibly unconstitutional. On this occasion, Mr. Zender once again criticized the parties of the possible new coalition (SPD, Greens, FDP) for the decision not to renew the status of "epidemiological situation of national scope", which allows more immediate and stricter measures. and expires on November 25.

In Bavaria, the rate of new cases per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days reached 625.3 today, the highest in the whole country, while the rate of hospital admissions exceeded the limit of 9 and is at 9.15.
