Image: It’s Yummy

Zimbabwe probably had a helluva party with tons of tarts on Monday, just as it did a year ago.

Confucius says: “To the ruler the people are heaven; to the people food is heaven.”

Happy birthday, Mr President!

Constitutional Order

Q: How does China comment on the recent situation in Niger? Will the coup in Niger affect relevant cooperation between China and Niger?

A: China follows closely the developments of situation in Niger. We have noted that the United Nations, the African Union and the Economic Community of West African States have already sent delegations to Niger for mediation. We always stand for the settlement of disputes through dialogue and consultation. We hope relevant parties in Niger can bear in mind the fundamental interests of their country and people to restore constitutional order as soon as possible and maintain national stability and development.
The Chinese and Nigerien people have enjoyed long-time friendly exchanges and cooperation. China attaches great importance to China-Niger relations and is ready to continue to develop friendly cooperation with Niger in various fields to the benefit of the two peoples.
