“I will ban you and send warships to your country” is not a competition, that is threatening people and that is not the approach to use.”
” Trade war is stupid, as it does not serve any purpose and disturbs economic progress of countries, including Malaysia.”
– Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (94)
Ignore the 25th International Conference on The Future of Asia ‘s outcome at the start of June (Nikkei Conference) at some peril. Of all the things that the world needs to learn, Asian wisdom may top the list during times of conflict.
The American bullying of China and the Chinese people (i.e.: Meng Wanzhou) leaves too many Asian nations in an awkward position between two angry superpowers. This pushes some to make a decision and choose sides. The proclivity is to stand up against American bullying which has since 2016 reached a feverish schoolyard brawl involving most of the world.

The Extraordinary Malaysia Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad
Malaysia Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has repeatedly said that Malaysia has yet to find Chinese telecommunications firm Huawei to be a threat to Malaysia’s national security, but it (Malaysia) is “watching closely”.
Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said western countries must accept that years of research and development has improved the capability of countries in the East, which no longer imitate products from the West.
“Initially they copied products from the West, then they produced better products and their research enables them to produce even better products…in the telephone field, for example, Korea, Japan and China spent much more money on research and development than probably Europe and the US.
“By investing more, the East has improved the products and the world must accept that new reality,” he said.
“(For instance), I understand Huawei has a tremendous advantage over American technology.
“But if you want to have a situation where you are always ahead and when you are not ahead I will ban you and send warships to your country, that is not a competition, that is threatening people and that is not the approach to use.
“As much as (before) we expected everything from the West, now it is coming from the East,” he said during a dialogue session at the 25th International Conference on The Future of Asia (Nikkei Conference)
