The ironing diplomatic words are spoken. Given each other 'face'. Now comes the time of wait and see how things will go. Interesting to see how Thailand will maneuvering between USA and China. The Thai government has not many international experienced diplomats in the BKK Top. Most eggs are already years in China basket.

Do not sign anything. GREENS COST JOBS.  Beware of the Pro Abortion Biden The Baby Killer Administration. Take note, it is all relevant. "Ten Months after Stepping Down as Fed Chair, Janet Yellen Became Part of the “Leadership” Team for Forums Tied to the Chinese Communist Party".
"China's hidden camps" human rights ? Forget it. Joe already has.
