This is crucial. Japan’s prime minister Fumio Kishida unexpectedly visits Kyiv while China’s dictator, Xi, is in Moscow.
It would appear that the scope of the international contest is too substantial and that there are ongoing efforts to undermine the Russian-Chinese alliance. Despite China’s claims that it can end the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, many other countries see this as an attempt by Beijing to assert its leadership in the region.
The Japanese prime minister quickly traveled to Kyiv to demonstrate the futility of the Chinese leader’s trip to Moscow. Today, in the 21st century, people all over the globe need to come together in harmony and closeness. There is no reason for this to happen if the world is already becoming more divided and riven with the events of each day, and with technological development.
What is the point, then?
Competencies between powerful nations and the desire to exert influence over less developed regions only serve to make the world a more dangerous place for all inhabitants. As long as bad actors profit from violent acts, thereby sowing the seeds of chaos that can derail even the best-laid plans for national defence, nations that are weak should avoid falling to such strategies.
For this reason, it is desirable to stop the competition and work together for global harmony. By visiting Moscow and Kyiv, respectively, the Chinese and Japanese leaders have demonstrated that Beijing and Moscow are in agreement. Because of this, China’s regional competitor, Japan, is working in tandem with Ukraine. We, the common folks of the globe, understand that you are adding fuel to the flames with this.
Investigative journalist and veteran of international reporting Hanan Habibzai has written extensively on the US invasion of Afghanistan, the collapse of the Taliban rule, and post-Taliban events, such as the emergence of militancy in the country.
After earning his Master of Arts in Global Journalism from Coventry University, Hanan began publishing articles about the conflict in Afghanistan and regional politics in various outlets. These include the BBC Afghan Stream, Pajhwok Afghan News, Reuter’s news agency, the Washington Post, Veterans Today, and other regional and international publications.
Hanan, fled Afghanistan in 2008. He attended Coventry University in the United Kingdom and graduated with a master’s degree in Global Journalism in 2011. Currently, Mr. Habibzai is a doctorate fellow in educational studies and educational leadership at Unicaf. He spent nearly a decade reporting from Afghanistan for the BBC and Reuters (2002 to 2009). Notably, he covered the invasion of Afghanistan and the fall of the Taliban government in 2001 for international media outlets.
From 2009 to 2013, he also worked as a journalist for Radio Free Europe out of London. The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan when he was young necessitated a move to Pakistan. His years of hiding in hiding paid off when the United States spearheaded an invasion that drove him back to the United Kingdom.
As a journalist, he traversed the length and breadth of Afghanistan, seeing first-hand the widespread hunger and suffering of the Afghan people, especially women and children.
UK-based organisation Helping Orphans was established by Hanan Habibzai in 2016. He took charge of the organisation freely since he knew that helping others was his true calling. The orphans and the disadvantaged people of Afghanistan benefit from his charity’s sustainable development programmes, and he hopes to one day be financially independent.
