The exploratory talks on forming a new German government, which have dragged on for nearly four months now with different actors, are characterized above all by the utter lack of any concept of the future. Such is the assessment given by Helga Zepp-LaRouche in an article written on Jan. 6, 2018 for Neue Solidarität. Meanwhile, a growing number of Germans have come to realize that Angela Merkel really cares very little about the common good. In the latest poll published by DIMAP, she came in only third with a 52% rating, behind the current Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel of the SPD, at 62%, and Cem Ozdemir, a leader of the Green Party, at 53%. Of those polled, 67% think that Merkel’s best time as Chancellor is behind her.

The Foreign Minister of Yemen Hisham Sharaf sponsored and addressed a seminar in the capital of Yemen on Nov. 7, dedicated to China’s Policy Paper on the Arab World, and to Yemen’s potential role in the Belt and Road Initiative. Foreign Minister Sharaf reviewed the friendly and productive historical relations with China, including many infrastructure projects that it had contributed to modern Yemen in the past decades before the outbreak of the Saudi war on Yemen in 2015. He expressed Yemen’s full readiness to join the Belt and Road Initiative and to protect the Maritime Silk Road at the Bab El-Mandab Strait and the Red Sea, and he urged China to play a constructive role in the political solution for the war in Yemen. The Chinese government does not yet recognize the government in Sana’a, which Sharaf represents, but rather the government of deposed President Abed-Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who is in exile in Saudi Arabia and has little or no control of matters in Yemen.
The Chairwoman of the Schiler Institute, Helga Zepp-LaRouche, authored an open letter to German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier on Nov. 4 under the title “The number of refugees worldwide has reached 66 million: Our planet’s next 50 years”, prompted by the speech that he had given two days earlier at the Singapore Management University. On that occasion, Steinmeier mentioned a lecture series that six universities in Singapore are co-organizing called “Imagining the Next 50 Years”, and then added: “I think that’s a bold approach – and it’s something that we in Germany should do more often. We should look through a telescope into the future, rather than just looking at the very next day, the next annual balance sheet or the next election.”
Die Präsidenten der drei wichtigsten Nuklearmächte der Welt arbeiten intensiv daran, die Beziehungen zwischen ihren Nationen zu verbessern und auf eine solide Basis der Kooperation im gegenseitigen Interesse zu stellen. Das sollte eigentlich von allen vernünftigen und friedliebenden Menschen überall auf der Welt begrüßt werden, aber in Europa und in den USA schmähen die Mainstream-Medien Donald Trump, Wladimir Putin und Xi Jinping als gefährliche vermeintliche oder tatsächliche Diktatoren und im Fall des US-Präsidenten als geistig instabil.
China Daily journalist Fu Jing launched his new book A New Code for Common Peace and Prosperity on Oct. 11, 2017 at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

On the eve of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China which began on Oct. 18 in Beijing, People’s Daily prepared a fast-moving four minute video giving the answers of 60 young Americans to what they think of China and its future prospects.

On Thursday, October 5, at 6 pm CET, Helga Zepp LaRouche inaugurated a weekly English-language webcast on the Schiller Institute website, at the request of many key players in politics and economics internationally, as well as Schiller Institute friends worldwide. She brought to the attention of citizens throughout the world the incredible new dynamic which has been unleashed around China’s Belt-and-Road Initiative (BRI).
On Oct. 5, at 18.00 CET, Helga Zepp LaRouche, the Founder and Chairwoman of the Schiller Institute, inaugurated a weekly English-language webcast to spread what she calls the “New Silk Road Spirit” to the world. Mrs. LaRouche is one of the most prominent intellectual authors of the concept of the Eurasian Land-bridge, expanded to the World Land-bridge. Since Chinese President Xi Jinping put the New Silk Road (now called the Belt and Road Initiative) on the agenda four years ago, it is lifting tens of millions out of poverty, and proposes an alternative to the dangerous idea of geopolitical division of the world.
