And: “@janoberg You are a “peace researcher” who spends his time whitewashing mass crimes for authoritarian states?” and “TFF, a group of Putin and Xi-admiring propagandists and conspiracy theorists…genocide-deniers and pro-authoritarian conspiracy theorists.” Thanks for the appreciation!

▪️ Thore Vestby, TFF Board member, March 26, in South China Morning Post, SCMP:
Why Europe shouldn’t fall for American hype against China’s belt and road plan.
The US is bent on discrediting China in Europe. It pressures allies not to buy Huawei technology but ignores claims it spied on Germany. And it condemns Chinese detention camps but forgets the havoc it has wrought after September 11.
