"The sooner #China was included into the international community, the earlier it would learn to play along with international norms, the argument went. But, China’s current measures indicate otherwise. International norms are the ones being played." thediplomat.com/2020/04/how-ch…
"China’s attempts to make the @UN a tool for achieving its hegemonic ambition would erode the institution’s trustworthiness from within and render international cooperation parochial."
"China’s approach to international cooperation would defeat the UN’s purpose to settle distributional conflicts since, very soon, other stakeholders would realize that cooperation is a cloak for advancing China’s national interests."

The government of Albania’s expulsion of two of the Iranian regime’s diplomats is a courageous and admirable measure in fighting terrorism and ensuring security of the people of #Albania and Iranian refugees. #Iran
Other European countries must learn from #Albania. Representative offices of the Iranian regime are centers of espionage and terrorism. #Iran
The Iranian regime’s diplomats are either members of the Intelligence Ministry (MOIS) or the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), or have been trained as terrorists and spies and serve the two agencies. #Iran

#Iran regime & MSM(@CNN @NYTimes @NBCNews) in the #US are portraying a criminal, a Child Killer &a war culprit in #Syria,#Iraq & a prime executioner in #Iran(#QassemSoleimani)as "revered"&N.Hero.
To MSM: Stop this dirty business. It's legitimizing the massacre of #IranProtesters Qassem Soleimani's criminal record.
@CNN @nytimes @NBCNews @IranNW @GiulioTerzi @iran_policy @STRUANSTEVENSON @USAdarFarsi @USAmbUN @StateDept @RichardGrenell @FoxNews @UNHumanRights Let's examine this here in the next few tweets. Is #Soleimani really a "hero" to #Iranians like what's being portrayed out of #Iran's state media, given the censorship,&lack of any freedom 4the ppl to show their true feelings?

1. #Bulgaria/n #economy 101! #Thread

#Borissov's government is proud that in 2018, #GDP growth was 3.2%, but how impressive is this and should you be impressed too?
2. #Bulgaria has the lowest #GDP/capita in the #EU, but it is not that small. Our population is ca 7.1 million. What does that mean? Lack of efficiency, but not only.

Graph credit: WorldBank
3. #Bulgaria has the lowest median earnings in the #EU. In 2018, the net salary was 457 EUR. Contrast with #Romania (565 EUR), #Poland (784 EUR), and #Greece (917 EUR).

#BBC has published an utterly bogus report on the Mujahedin-e Khalq (#MEK).In its entirety,it has rehashed the #Iranian regime’s threadbare,baseless &false allegations through the voices of 2notorious functionaries of #Iran's Ministry of Intelligence(#MOIS)#FakeNews
So outrageous is the scope of lies and distortion in this report that it raises an obvious question: What kind of a deal has the #Iranian regime offered to the #BBC to secure such an inexplicable and vulgar hit-piece? #FakeNews

Gettin ready to storm the Pedo Islands in Greece?
😂😂 #UrGunnaHang Better head to that bunker soon!

Sazan Island , #vlore #Albania until 1987 one of the most heavily fortified places in Europe, and until 2017 completely off limits. Look carefully for multiple gun installations and concrete bunkers. #visitalbania
Greece has between 1,200 and 6,000 islands, over 200 of which are populated. Corfu has been a favorite destination of elites for generations.

@BenKTallmadge @CarrollQuigley1 @MadAddictSport @DerfMagnus @SeekerOTL Searching the word "Albania" on twitter will yield some wild discussions Re opposition to Iran groups setting up shop in Albania. Also, a fake twitter account writing articles about Iran opposition from Albania.
@BenKTallmadge @CarrollQuigley1 @MadAddictSport @DerfMagnus @SeekerOTL Also the sh*t is hitting the fan in Albania. Why no US news?

1. Recent chat with friend, he tells me: "Why are you so angry with #ErionVeliaj, he is a hard worker". I replied that #LaliEri is as dangerous to #Albania's future as #EnverHoxha was in 1946. He's a heartless, skilled liar at best hostage to mob at worst willing cooperator. ...
2. #ErionVeliaj was elected on 'zero construction' promise in historic central areas of #Tirana. During his first mandate he has turned said area into a massive construction site and is destroying the few quiet remaining islands of 1920s Tirana - Durres and Kavaja streets area.
3. #ErionVeliaj has loaded utility bills he controls with new and increased taxes, tripling these bills and making them unaffordable to poor Tirana residents, who at the same time might find themselves unemployed as Lali's 'police' thugs attacks small vendors any chance they get.
