"Please name the strategic Alliance between the Russia Federation and PRC and when it went into effect"
Having best relation does not mean that they need to enter into a strategic Alliance. Sound like you could not differentiate between the terms best of relation and Strategic Alliance.

There seem to be some fallacies and assumption in this reported article. Economic growth had slow, capital expenditure had been cut back. Even if consumers spending increased before the increase in the sale tax this is only a one off even,t then what happen next.
If domestic demand is weak,economic growth is also weak, individual investors are cutting back investment, capital expenditure cut and the coming increased in sale tax will add more stress to price hike and is it real that industries will hire more people with higher wage. This does not sound like a likely scenario.
Something is loss in translation.

Sound like this diabetes drug under research has great potential. The main research seems to center on obese people with diabetes, I wonder whether what will this do to slim people that also have diabetes given that this potential drug could result in weight loss.

highball7 and Tigerta9. There is nothing to be sad about the Brits not get a go at the deal, It's a matter of which bidder offers the best deal, price and completion time. 16 Billion pound is not a small sum for any British company and EDF undertook it at their risk.

Yes BertieWooster I like the Gold Standard, they should bring it back.
Japan and China are US perpetual lender, unlike your fixed term deposits in the bank which you can withdraw on maturity.

It seems that TEPCO is forever battling to contain the radioactive water at the nuclear complex, Its pumps are battling to keep up with the rainwater and they are battling to come up with a solution, won't be long they will be battling to survive as a going concern.

A good initial positive outcome from this meeting and negotiation. Now it's time for both sides to keep their hashed rhetoric to themselves. Further threats and counter threats will do no good to further conclude a positive outcome.

@ JoeBigs How does these two statements tied up 1.0 South Korea running a trade surplus with PRC. 2.0 South Korea has been a tributary state of the PRC ( For your informationl South Korea has not been a tributary state of PRC?).
Do you think you can write factual comments?

This dispute issue has its origin at the signing of the Treaty of San Francisco which China was not invited to, Understandably US is the party that sow the seed of discontent between China and Japan. May be its time US come clean to have this uncertainty resolved instead of issuing insinuated conflicting comments on the ownership of the disputed Islands.

I do agree with you that this dispute should be settled by negotiation for the good of both countries and for Asian region as well. There is a issue I have with your distance of Senkaku/Diaoyu Island, distances between Nations. On checking them from data bank I found them as follow:
76 Nm or 140 kilometers from East of Pengjia Islet, Taiwan's Territory
92 Nm or 170 kilometers from Ishingaki Island, Japan Territory
100 Nm or 186 Kilometers North East of Keelong, Taiwan Territory
220 Nm or 410 West of Okinawa Island, Japan Territory
