Xi says Russia and China should ‘lead global governance reform’

July 11, 2023SpaceWar.com reports: “China and Russia need to ‘lead the correct direction of global governance reform’, according to Chinese President Xi Jinping, who hailed the two countries’ partnership at a meeting with a top Russian politician in Beijing on Monday, state media reported.

Beijing and Moscow have ramped up economic cooperation and diplomatic contacts in recent years, with exchanges only growing closer since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last year.

On Monday, Xi met Valentina Matviyenko, the speaker of the Federation Council — the Russian parliament’s upper house — at the Great Hall of the People, state broadcaster CCTV reported.

Xi said the development of relations between the two countries was ‘a strategic choice made by both countries based on the fundamental interests of their respective countries and peoples’, according to CCTV.

‘Both sides also need to strengthen communication and collaboration within multilateral mechanisms such as the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation and the BRICS countries, lead the correct direction of global governance reform, and safeguard the common interests of emerging market countries and developing countries,’ the statement continued…”  (Russia in Bible prophecy is the main instigator of death and suffering during Armageddon – Revelation 16:16.  Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39, which Dr. Van Impe proclaimed for sixty years, aided by Oriental and Islamic nations, bring total chaos and atomic devastation upon the world.  Worse yes, it’s just ahead of us.  Every nation he included in World War III is forming exactly as taught this global blood bath six decades ago.  The only good news is that the Rapture precedes Armageddon – Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth – Revelation 3:10.  Then our deliverance as believers – Revelation 4:1 and our joy because of missing Armageddon.)

China’s top diplomat says Beijing, Moscow to deepen ties

July 14, 2023SpaceWar.com reports: “China’s top diplomat said Thursday Beijing would strengthen ties with Russia in areas of strategic communication and coordination, as the allies’ contacts grow closer after Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine last year.

Beijing says it is a neutral party in the war but its refusal to condemn the invasion has led many of Kyiv’s allies to accuse it of favouring Russia after emerging as Moscow’s most important ally in its current bout of international isolation.

Wang Yi met Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on the sidelines of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) meeting in Jakarta, where both will take part in an 18-nation East Asia Summit ministerial meeting Friday.

‘The two sides should… strengthen strategic communication and coordination,’ Wang was quoted as saying by the Chinese foreign ministry in a statement.

‘China and Russia firmly support each other in safeguarding legitimate interests, adhere to the path of harmonious coexistence and win-win development.’…”  (As was mentioned earlier, China will become a basic partner with Russia for the rapidly approaching battle of Armageddon – Revelation 16:16. Russia will lead invasion number one – Ezekiel 38 & 39. China will lead invasion number two – Revelation 16:12; Revelation 9:14 – 16. Then all nations will come against Jerusalem for the final invasion at which point Jesus will return to stop the bloodshed and set up his eternal kingdom upon earth – [He gathers] all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken… Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south – Zechariah 14:2 – 4. Then Psalm 2:6 occurs as God the Father says: …I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion [Jerusalem].  See the next report.)

Russia, China kick off joint naval drills

July 20, 2023SpaceWar.com reports: “Russia said Thursday it had started joint naval drills with China in the Sea of Japan as the two allies seek to deepen their military cooperation.

Ties between Moscow and Beijing have grown closer since Russia launched its Ukraine offensive last year, a move China has not condemned.

The Russian defence ministry said the main goal of the exercises that will run until Sunday is to ‘strengthen naval cooperation’ between the two countries and ‘maintain stability and peace in the Asia-Pacific region’.

The drills will include ‘anti-submarine missions and naval combat’ and the sea and air escort of ships, the ministry said, adding there are also plans ‘to carry out joint artillery fire’.

The Russian navy is represented by two anti-submarine ships, two corvettes as well as auxiliary ships, the ministry said.

Beijing said on Sunday it was sending five warships, including a guided-missile destroyer…”

Putin: We have a sufficient stockpile of cluster bombs

July 17, 2023Israel National News reports: “Russian President Vladimir Putin said an interview on Sunday that Moscow has a ‘sufficient stockpile’ of cluster munitions, and warned that Russia ‘reserves the right to take reciprocal action’ if Ukraine uses the controversial weapons, The Associated Press reported.

The comments mark the first time that Putin has responded to the US announcement that it will send cluster munitions to Ukraine as part of a new military aid package.

Putin said that Russia hasn’t used cluster bombs in the war with Ukraine so far, claiming, ‘Until now, we have not done this, we have not used it, and we have not had such a need.’

Human rights groups and Ukraine’s Ambassador to the United States accused Russia last year of attacking Ukrainians with cluster bombs and vacuum bombs…”  (Russia is warming up for Armageddon. Soon a peace program will be contracted for the Middle East nations – Daniel 11: 21, 24. It will be a peace contract for seven years but broken after 42 months – Daniel 9:27. Russia is the nation that then says: …I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations… – Ezekiel 38:11, 12.)
