Brexit has been changed from whether it should divorce the EU to a question of whether it has the political ability to find a way out of the maze.

China's strength is a reliable guarantee of national unity and world peace. It is also a solid foundation to act against any force that tries to sabotage regional peace and development. China has always pursued a defensive national defense policy, and the 70 years of peaceful rise is China's greatest contribution to the development of mankind.
