    Default What Xi and Putin want to gain from their joint meeting

    The charade of diplomacy is such a farce

    Putin would be a fool to become dependent on China and Xi a bigger fool than he already is to trust Putin.

    China is the third biggest importer of natural gas. Right now they get six percent of that from Russia. Wonder if that number will increase.

    That appears to be the mentality.

    However, Putin has put on display for the World to see his military's incompetence and corruption. I would be wary of making any deals with my expansionist, next-door-neighbor with whom I currently have a territorial dispute (as does everyone bordering China).
