    Good God . . . if you miss your motherland and its institutions so much . . . and if the party, the only party, decides who you can choose from and you call that 'democratically' elected then you are more dense than I thought

    Can't understand why HooHoo hasn't moved to Chinastan already, he's such a suck up they'd welcome him with open arms.

    He wouldn't even need "retraining".

    It's your motherland so it is relevant

    You mean welcome him back. Oh, I think he'd love it for the first three days . . . then the reality of communist control would become more and more evident and he'd want to whine about it on Facebook or Twitter . . . realise it's banned in the Communist Workers Paradise and then whine on WeChat and get arrested.

    Either way, win-win

    China & India pull troops away, set up ‘buffer zone’ in Himalayas weeks after bloody border clash – reports


    "China and India have moved their soldiers away from the site of a deadly June skirmish along the disputed border in the Himalayas, reports say. The news comes a day after senior officials agreed to expedite mutual disengagement.

    Chinese soldiers have moved their tents and other structures away from the site of the bloody melee in the Galwan River valley that took place last month, Indian media reported, citing official sources. Indian troops are said to have pulled back as well, and a buffer zone was set up between the soldiers from both sides.

    Indian military sources told AFP that that the disengagement of the Chinese troops began in accordance with the agreement reached during talks between high-ranking army officials from both countries.

    Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi discussed the situation along the border with Indian National Security Advisor Ajit Doval over the phone on Sunday. They agreed to ensure the mutual disengagement of troops along the de facto border as soon as possible.


    The neighbors have a longstanding border dispute in the Himalayas, and tensions occasionally lead to standoffs and skirmishes in the area, where both countries maintain a network of outposts.

    The heightened situation began escalating in May and culminated in a dramatic June 15 melee, during which 20 Indian soldiers were killed. Beijing acknowledged that there were casualties on both sides but stopped short of releasing any numbers."

    India, China Agree To 'Complete Disengagement' From Deadly Border Flashpoint



    "Chinese troops were seen removing structures from a Himalayan valley where they fought a deadly battle with Indian soldiers last month, Indian army sources said Monday, after high-level talks between the nuclear-armed neighbours.

    Brutal hand-to-hand fighting in the Galwan Valley in Ladakh on June 15 left twenty Indian soldiers dead and sent tensions between the countries soaring. China has acknowledged it suffered casualties but has not given figures.
    The two sides agreed on Sunday to "completely disengage" from the border flashpoint and ensure "a phased and stepwise de-escalation in the India-China border areas," India's foreign ministry said Monday.

    In a CCTV readout of the meeting, China's representative Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Beijing would "effectively defend its territorial sovereignty, while maintaining peace in the border areas".

    Earlier, an Indian army source told AFP that China's People's Liberation Army soldiers were seen removing tents and structures in the Galwan Valley, and military vehicles were being moved back.
    "Disengagement with the PLA has started as per agreed terms in the Corps Commanders' meeting," the source said, adding the Indian army was verifying how far back Chinese forces had withdrawn.

    There was no comment on whether there was a similar withdrawal by Indian troops."

    Well that was a waste of time, but at least they didn't try lobbing their dodgy nukes at each other.
