President Xi Jinping made a statement at the virtual event of the opening of the 73rd World Health Assembly.
President Xi: At this crucial juncture, to support #WHO is to support international cooperation and the battle for saving lives. China calls on the intl community to increase political and financial support for WHO.
China supports the idea of a comprehensive review of the global #COVID19 response after it's brought under ctrl to sum up experience and address deficiencies. This should be based on science & professionalism, led by #WHO and conducted objectively & impartially.

الدراما المكسيكية في عالم #النفط:

في فتره من #الماضي الجميل، تصدرت المسلسلات المكسيكية قائمة المشاهدات على جميع تلفزيونات #الوطن_العربى حتى أصبحت جزء من الثقافة العامة.

Changing #WorldOrder against #China Post #Corona

Whole world is suffering from #COVID19 which is actually a #Chinesevirus. Thousands of people have lost their lives and still this is not going to stop easily.
1. Officially #US President talked China regarding role of China in tackling this issue. But left dominated media forced him to stop this and call it Novel virus.
2. Unofficially people are questioning #china regarding spread of this virus, china's efforts to put initial cover on it and talk of conspiracy and #BioTerrorism angle.
Many countries have been forced by public outcry to take action against china.

Hoy tuvimos la reunión de Ministros de Finanzas y Gobernadores de Bancos Centrales del #G20.

Reconocemos que los efectos económicos del #Covid19 son la situación más retadora para la economía mundial desde la Gran Depresión de 1929.

Me gustaría compartirles lo que acordamos:
Primero, los países miembros pondremos todos los recursos necesarios para luchar contra la pandemia y, así, salvar vidas.

Segundo, utilizaremos todos los instrumentos de política fiscal y monetaria disponibles para luchar contra los efectos económicos del confinamiento global.
Este es un fenómeno en evolución.

En #México, aún no llegamos a la fase 3, que será el momento más crítico, por lo que requeriremos instrumentos y medidas flexibles para adaptarnos a situaciones nuevas.

Offenbar ist beim Tagesspiegel Redaktion derart ausgedünnt, dass Quellen nicht mehr geprüft werden. Text von #Indymedia, der auf Italienisch erschienen ist, anschließend ins Griechische und von da auf Deutsch übersetzt wurde, ohne Einordnung als Grundlage für Artikel: ernsthaft?
„Lüge“ & „Hetze“ sind nicht meine Worte. @LorenzMaroldt, Sie wollen wissen was Problem am Text ist? Gut
1. Sie nehmen eine Debate aus dem italienischen Kontext, ohne dies zu benennen und suggerieren, dass es Position der hiesigen radikalen Link ist
2. Position wird nicht eingeordnet. Es handelt sich um Text aus dem insurrektionistischen Spektrum. Das sind weder die Autonomen, noch weniger ist es die radikale Linke. Positionen können etwa im, auch von deutschen Feuilleton diskutieren, Unsichtbaren Komitee nachgelesen werden

Lets talk about #Global #CentralBanks and their #MonetaryPolicy stances given #COVID19. Specifically, lets ask ourselves: "Can Central Banks Help Fight COVID-19?"
The best place to start is to note that #Global #Growth was already facing considerable downside risks before the #COVID19 outbreak December 2019. The slow down in global growth came on the back of trade (china vs. us) and geopolitical (Brexit etc.) tensions...
To this end, institutions such as the #IMF & #WorldBank revised down their 2020 #Economic #Growth outlook & emphasised the need for a more coordinated #policy approach between #monetary & #fiscal policy around the globe to "rescue" growth from the doldrums...

Das Bundesamt und die Landesämter für #Verfassungsschutz gelten in Regierungsäußerungen und Öffentlichkeit als zentrale Werkzeuge im Kampf gegen den Faschismus. Sie sind nicht dafür geeignet und müssen ersetzt werden. Thread 1/28
Es geht wohlgemerkt nicht primär um dad praktische Problem, dass dort stockkonservative bis stramm rechte Law&Order-Fetischisten (i.d.R. korrekt gegendert) arbeiten (bis hinauf zum ehemaligen Chef des Bundesamts, dem rechten Hetzer und Verschwörungstheoretiker #Maaßen). 2/28
Vielmehr müssen Aufgabendefinition und Arbeitsweise dieser Dienste unter die Lupe genommen werden. Es heißt in ihren Verlautbarungen stets, sie bekämpfen die drei Bereiche Rechtsextremismus, Linksextremismus und Islamismus. Schauen wir uns die einzeln an. 3/28

As #Australia reels from unprecedented bushfires, the disconnect between its vulnerability to #climate change and the inadequacy of its government's response is coming under international scrutiny.
We have produced a mountain of research on this -
👇👇 thread👇👇
1/ #Australia is on fire due in large part to #climate change yet the government is looking for ways to weaken the Paris Agreement by using 40 y. o. Kyoto protocol credits to meet its 2030 targets. We show there's no legal basis for this @TheAusInstitute
2/ Our calculations show just how bad using Kyoto carryover units to meet #ParisAgreement commitments would be for #climate action: an extra 0.1˚C of warming that wld not otherwise hv occurred due to delays in energy & economic system transformation

The last few days of #US military build up make a lot of sense now. The killing of #Iran Quds Force commander Suleimani cannot be overstated as an escalatory event, even if US will have intended it as ultimate show of force.
Suleimani was the most visible face of Iran’s fight against #IslamicState and US in the region. A huge loss of knowledge and expertise for IRGC and humiliating for #Khamenei after his tweet taunting #Trump. The question now must be what an Iranian response will be.
Iran can not afford not to respond to this level of attack, but does not necessarily have to respond immediately. They will understand how vulnerable Trump is going into the electoral period. US military and energy assets across #Iraq are at high risk of rocket and mortar attack.

It’s that time of the year when we look back on how India charted new pathways in #Diplomacy and left an imprint on the global agenda.
The year began with the 10th #IndiaJapan Strategic Dialogue, which provided a platform for blossoming of deep rooted ties into a special strategic & global partnership
The then Japanese Foreign Minister @konotaromp attended the summit along with the former EAM Smt. Sushma Swaraj
@konotaromp @MofaJapan_en @IndianEmbTokyo @PIB_India A World Reorder: New Geometries; Fluid Partnerships; Uncertain Outcomes.
The 4th edition of @raisinadialogue, a flagship annual geopolitical and geostrategic conference, was organised by @orfonline and @MEAIndia

1️⃣ The writer and many commentators can be described in a very appropriate way, that they are backward and barbaric as well. The fact that their ideas express wishes for failure to a young leader who has been able to defeat all their aggressive campaigns.
2️⃣ You can imagine that the most ferocious and aggressive campaign in recent history included states, heads of state, governments, writers, journalists, tv channels, social media, research centers, war and terrorist attacks, yet he succeeded, always calm and smiling.
3️⃣ The overwhelming desire of this broad spectrum to overthrow the Saudi crown prince expresses only one thing, that he’s the best ever. If these barbarians backwoods were honest in one case, they could easily overthrow him, and that made them continue to shout hysterically.

Hard factual headlines will follow this one:

"Tories have maxed up UK state debt by 2.5 times in just 9 and half years!" This is unprecedented in peacetime!

"Despite #Tory #Lies to the contrary? UK #economy is flat on its back, and likely to fall further - GDP was just 0.1% in the 6 months to 30sep19 being our worst showing since the financial crash!"

GDP(Gross Domestic Product) = total output of UK #economy, on which vital tax-take depends. HMG needs our tax (from companies, employees, householders) to fund OUR public services. Flat GDP growth (low % uplift) means less capability to fund services on which we depend!

Just days away from a #GE2019 which will shape UK for many generations to come!

Some incontrovertible facts:

1/ UK GDP% growth has stalled, at just 0.1% over the 6 months to 30sep19 (so, virtually flat-lining). This is the worst 1/2 year performance since the financial crash.
2/ Three plus years on from the disastrous #EURef, we now KNOW that destabilising Russian influence/cash was a material factor in driving the #Leave Vote. So, #RussiaReport MUST be released BEFORE we vote again in #GE2019.
3/ Russian agents also freely KILL (when directed & funded to do so) on the streets of Britain, so let's not readily 'pooh pooh' their ambition & reach to destabilise both the #UK & #EU.

Es folgt eine Auswahl #bestof aus dem gerade erschienenen #Verfassungsschutz-Bericht 2018 für #Thüringen (grundsätzliche Kritik findet ihr hier:…) #thread
Thüringer Gericht stellt fest, dass man #Höcke "#Faschist" nennen darf, im #Verfassungsschutzbericht taucht #AfD nur als Opfer unter „Linksextremismus“ bei Sachbeschädigungen auf, während über 16 Angriffe (mehrheitlich PMK-rechts) auf LINKE Büros mit keiner Silbe erwähnt werden
#VS erklärt am Ende seines Berichts im Glossar, was neue 'Neue Rechte' bedeutet, versäumt es aber vollständig, im Bericht auch nur ein Wort zur Neuen Rechten 2018 zu erwähnen, obwohl diese bspw. auch bedeutsam für Aufstieg der #AfD in Thüringen und zur Landtagswahl 2019 ist

Trump says transcript of second Ukraine call will "probably" be released Tuesday
Trump wants to release the first call only because—unlike the second call—it doesn't contain anything incriminating, according to Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. It's a distraction.
Why the change in tone? What happened in between the first and the second call with Zelenskyy? In early May, during a phone call, Putin “did what he always does” in seeking to undercut the United States’ relationship with Ukraine. Also, Trump spoke to Putin at the #G20 in June.

Another important day in #tax world and especially for @OECDtax.

#G20 Ministers should approve today last week's proposal by the OECD to reform international corporate tax rules.

Is this a revolution?

Check out this thread for a visual illustration of what is on the table!
The reform (who has the right to tax multinationals and where should that happen) has 3 steps (A, B and C). A being the major breakthrough. All companies with a certain turnover in a country even without physical presence have to allocate a part of their profits to that country.
How this step A looks like is the big question and it has been hard to visualize the reform and clearly indicate what still needs to be negotiated (cause a lot is still under discussion). I have tried to put it all in images and happy to hear comments and discuss #taxtwitter
