    Did she just say, Japan is the oldest Asian country/society? Lmao

    Did she just asked, “how close is Germany and Japan’s relationship?” The death of 70-80 million lives in WW2. That’s how close their relationship is.

    Prime example of bias news and dumb people.

    AT 1,20 mins, there is visible TWO huge and weird tables in the studio, WHY are tables in European TV studios getting bigger and more weird ? In one English studio the table was so huge there wasnt room to sit around it,,,they had to stand, Can an EXPERT in European TV studio design explain,,what is it with the bloody tables ? My theory is all these tables are made in China and are actually huge Huawei intelligence devices

    As far as i know, the data access act of China only demand companies grant government access their database INSIDE China if warranted. And mind you, there're so many social experiments going on in China that even Chinese cannot possibly track, this tech, that policy can exist here, today, and out tomorrow. So, don't believe the sensationalism whatever media tells you. And reporters in China, plz, know your job, you maybe stationed elsewhere tomorrow, but how about know something about your job today, here?

    Google and Facebook could be beholden to NSA whose spying programs continue despite being blown out to the public by Mr. Snowden, the honorable whistle blower much respected by countries outside the US. But NSA has already upgraded their spying activities by going into US tech companies such as above and penalizing them with billions of dollars through innovative lawsuits whenever they could not do what it wanted them to do, and the fear is always there if they failed to comply with NSA. I am sure Germany and Japan know about the activities of NSA, but the countries might have got some strangle holds by the US that they cannot afford to let the public know.

    Don't panic Angela Merkel.
    It is the Israel/US led 5eyes gangsterism spewing evil mantra about 5G just because their collective efforts have failed miserably to contain China's state of the art technology taking the world lead. Huawei 5G is the best thing since the internet, their technology is the best and the cheapest.
    China can do without the US and the lot because they already have the critical mass to go well beyond your wildest dreams.
