If next time you and your beloved dine at a Chinese restaurant don’t be surprised at a change of menu. There could be Olaf Scholz chicken and chips, Macron chop suey and a la Leyen van orange duck’. The friendly Chinese are quick to show their gratitude to those who dish out nirvana to the Chinese people.
With the once White but now not so bright West has a penchant for tightening sanctions on Russia and is turning its back on Russian vast – and essential – natural resources, China looks set to find additional sources of energy closer to home,’ writes The Times.
According to statistics, China has always been the largest buyer of coal from Russia: last year, the total volume of its purchases amounted to 54 million tons. Thanks to this, Russia has become the second-largest source of coal supplies to China, ahead of anti-China Australia, but still inferior in this indicator to friendlier Indonesia, the article says.
Furthermore, Chinese provinces are hoping for more imports from Russia. At an online conference held in March by the China Coal Transportation and Distribution Association, several Chinese importers at once expressed enthusiasm for buying additional volumes of coal from Russian producers.
Jidian International Trade, a Chinese state-owned commodity trading company based in the north-eastern city of Changchun, told reporters that it has already purchased more than 500,000 tons of coal from its trade-friendly neighbour since the operation began in Ukraine.
So, while the West is committing suicide by turning its back on Russian energy resources, China is doing its best to strike new deals with Russia. Authorities in the northeastern province of Heilongjiang, located near the borders of Russia, also hope to take advantage of the situation to actively develop their economy. Xu Qin called for even greater integration between the two countries and deepening bilateral cooperation in the energy sector to ensure energy security.

China, it was once said was a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. Surely this overview applies much more to the hapless leaders of today’s declining Western powers?
