8:03 am
citing general skepticism after the previous government fell. following a child benefit scandal, people simply don't trust the government and, and that is a cause, a huge, huge challenge for the dutch government to overcome. it seeks to convince people to have vaccinations when it seeks to convince people of the need for a long down in bavaria in southern germany, it's the last weekend before a local lockdown for the on vaccinated the countries health minister says a 4th wave of infections is so serious that a national lockdown can't be ruled out. bennett police just at 1st pick the alice dick it had the politicians organize this more strictly. we would have avoided this worsening situation with intensive care units being isolated. i think it's absolutely right in high time to react either mental get with the put on depression now and ultimately we're no longer free honesty. if you ask me, i'm convinced. mandatory vaccination will be entertained while in northern italy, 3 ski slaves have opened up for the 1st time since march 2020. everyone has to show

8:05 am
it follows the baltic nation allowing taiwan to open a representative office in its capital vilios. the u. s. has been standing by its nato ally against its rival, china. washington has rejected what it's referred to as other countries interfering in lithuania, relationship with taiwan. let's speak to ben y hardy sher tall. he's an adjunct professor of political science and international affairs at temple university in japan. join me now via skype from take a good time with us. on the program, lithuania is no different to any other european country and the u. k. should say within the e u and the u. k, who have either some sort of tie when he's representation on the soil. why has china taken on bridge to what lithuania has done? right, indeed, even though there are 15, only 15 countries of the world are recognized taiwan officially. there are indeed many, many more countries, as you just mentioned,
8:06 am
that have some form of defacto representation from taiwan. and they have some sort of trade representative. for example, and lithuania certainly are certainly not the only one in europe. what really has barked the recent controversy of the recent tension between lithuania and china is the fact that the new representative office that will be open and lithuania is going to bear the name taiwan is going to be the time when he's representative office. typically, the sorts of representative office use the name type pay because if you refer to the island itself to taiwan in the name of the, of the office, this tends to give more legitimacy to, to taiwan. and therefore, this is something that tends to really angered china, so in order not to jeopardize relations with china, those countries usually all we have, what again is called the kind of type, a representative office. so the fact of this new office in lithuania is going to be call i will need represented office is really what started this whole row. and that
8:07 am
has sparked or for us or pushed china to downgrade its relations with wayne ya. which brings me to my next question about downgrading those relationships to charlotte to fair level. what does this actually been in practical terms? in practical terms and means was going to have some bearing possibly on trade between lithuania and china. although trade between lithuania and china is relatively limited. what john is really trying to do there is to send a message to other countries that are considering upgrading their ties with taiwan . and for sure, the case of lithuania, they want to also stand up for what some of the values you repeat, the values of always the bands that they said that this is not necessarily move against china, but rather remove that is pro europe. but certainly there's going to have some possibly limited impact, but the united states have promised that they will stand by their nato ally and probably, and help them as well in terms of increasing trade with lithuania. but this is all, indicate some china about deterring other countries from pursuing similar moves.
8:08 am
and he does, he just said, you know, trade between lithuania and china is minute and compare in comparison to the trade that china has with you as a whole. but lithuania was depending on some very lucrative and important contracts with china in the lights of sort of the belt and road projects that china has. it does want to expand its influence across europe. it does want to bring in smaller countries like lithuania, latvia, estonia, because if you bring those smaller countries and you can have influence, they had influence. when the you, they talk to members of the you, it's all about political massaging of conversation, isn't it? and china is not really having a great time with you right now. now you're absolutely right. you have, i would say over the last 2 years, turned on china, there has been a real change really shift and attitude, not only in western europe, but in some way as well in the eastern europe. as you mentioned,
8:09 am
for china having any kind of of allies or partners in eastern or western europe, it's very useful. this is one of the reasons why it had established the 17 plus one mechanism, which was a kind of cooperation mechanism between china and eastern european countries. and now lithuania has even said that it will be, it has withdrawn from that mechanism. so that is certainly a, some kind of a blow for china. but indeed, in the last couple of years, things have not been very not gone very well in large part due to the perceptions of a sort of foreign policy on the part of china. perceptions are not very widespread in europe, and that has led a lot of countries to, you know, to focus more on pushing back again, china in this region in the, in the pacific. think your insight and certainly a story that will develop, i'm sure as time goes on. but while hardy said, thanks for joining us from take you. thank you. thank you. now so toes and the video has emerged are foolish way, which shows the tennis star at
8:10 am
a junior tournament in beijing. now this video is the latest post by the editor of global times. thing had not been seen in public since making our sexual allegations against former chinese vice premier shining jolie. now the wool tennis association says, sundays video and photos are insufficient. that do not just address the concerns about her. the u. s. u. k u n. have all been demanding proof of funds whereabouts. thus where housewife of presidential elections in chile and the nation has riley been so divided. millions are choosing a successor to sebastian pinero, the leading candidate sing, tune left his gabrielle borage on right wing. jose antonio cast or latin america editor lucien newman reports can actually when 35 year old former student leader gabrielle bought each stops to ask for this man support his told that all politicians are liars, not only willing to which he answers, not all politicians are alike live bought each

whether it's fishing in exclusive economic designs or whether it's fishing on the high seas. we know from a lot of science and a lot of experience around the world. the way you have good management, there are more fish in the say, there's more fish to go around. and so what we absolutely need to encourage and drive through different governments all around the world. recognize the scale of this problem. recognize that by introducing good management, good governance, we actually end up in a much more positive productive situation where companies can catch the fish they need. people who depend on fishing for their lively could, can, can catch the fish they need and there's plenty for future generations. some of the wealthier countries have more capacity to develop the governance systems in order to be able to put a bit better fishing practices in place. but let's be honest, every country needs to lift the game. there are quite a few well developed countries with well developed governance systems in australia is one of them where still 38 percent of the strategy is fish stocks,
