Economic partnership between China and Australia is not limited just to minerals. Agricultural and livestock exports from Australia also play an important role. While a large portion of these exports include cattle and sheep, exports of wheat and barley have also grown steadily over the years.

Those are the words used by Ren Zhiqiang last 23 February when the billionaire openly challenged President Xi Jinping for the way the President has handled the coronavirus pandemic, especially in the early stages when he clumsily tried to hide the true extent of the disaster in China. Zhiqiang is the son of a real estate developer close to the Communist Party and formerly part of the so-called “red nobility” that supports the same party, yet he is a voice out of the chorus that has made itself known as “the Cannon”. Last April 2020, Ren Zhiqiang went missing for few days before the announcement of the Chinese authorities which confirmed that Zhiqiang was held in custody.

The ethnic Armenians did not accept this decision. In 1988, the Nagorno-Karabakh legislature voted to join the Armenian Republic. After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Yerevan-backed Armenian separatists seized the territory, home to a significant Azerbaijani minority, as well as seven adjacent Azerbaijani districts.
