#Somaliland and #Taiwan: The benefits

A THREAD

1/14. S/land and Taiwan have a lot in common such as both being a fully functioning democracies with volatile neighbours. Both are striving for international recognition and will not budge to threats or diplomatic pressure. Image
2/14. Somaliland brings a lot to the table. S/land’s strategic location in the Horn of Africa will give Taiwan a gateway into East Africa and beyond. Landlocked countries in Africa can benefit from this diplomatic move such as Ethiopia, South Sudan, and Uganda.
3/14. S/land will give Taiwan an important access to the Gulf of Berbera (Gulf Aden) where access to the Middle East, North Africa and the rest of the world can be established which will boost Taiwan’s export opportunities as well as a chance to make new friends in the region.

Another vaxxed parent has infected their unvaxxed child. Yet the mother of the hospitalized 3-year-old blames the unvaccinated:

"maybe if more people will be vaccinated, I wouldn’t have had the exposure that caused me to bring this illness to my daughter"

"Across Los Angeles County, cities and neighborhoods including West Hollywood, Venice and Santa Monica now report some of the most infections, even though their vaccination rates are higher than in poorer areas such as East Los Angeles"

Or — and I know this sounds crazy, but hear me out — maybe it was all the adverse events, the failure to block transmission, and the waning efficacy that 'tanked confidence' in the AstraZeneca vaccine?

"Around the 🌍, #COVID19 cases & deaths are continuing to increase at worrying rates. Globally, the number of new cases per week has nearly doubled over the past two months. This is approaching the highest rate of infection that we have seen so far during the pandemic"-@DrTedros
"Some countries that had previously avoided widespread #COVID19 transmission are now seeing steep increases in infections.

One of those countries is #PapuaNewGuinea. Until the beginning of this year, 🇵🇬 had reported less than 900 cases, and just 9 deaths"-@DrTedros

#China #PapuaNewguinea #PNG #Bejing #DaruIsland #fishing

China's Ministry of Commerce has announced that Fujian Zhonghong Fishery Company has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Papua New Guinea Government
to build a $204 million "comprehensive multi-functional fishery industrial park" on the island of Daru under its Belt and Road Initiative. Daru is one of the few Torres Strait Islands that are governed by Papua New Guinea rather than Australia.
Former PNG government adviser Jeffrey Wall said it was a lot of money to spend in a small community not known for commercial fish stocks. For Australia and the USA the Daru island agreement between PNG and China is a threat as the Daru islands are not even 200KM away.
