Beijing said that it “expects Argentina to perform according to law” in reference to the recent sinking of a Chinese flagged jigger by the country's Coast Guard and which was operating in Argentina's EEZ. The announcement is considered significant in Buenos Aires since Argentine president Mauricio Macri is expecting to meet his counterpart Xi Jinping in Washington, next Friday in the framework of the Nuclear security summit.

    Rescued by another jigger, so that one must have been in the EEZ also, why not sink that one? Smells fishy to me. LOL

    China is right. The Argentine government has to ask apologize and compensate the damage caused.

    Two faced, these members of the Middle Kingdom!

    No comment that the ship was acting illegally for YEARS.

    Argentina did the right thing for once and they should tell this 'spokesperson' to 'fuckee-offeee'.

    have a suggestion for you......why don't you and your PT buddies rent a fishing boat (the LullaRat could be captain) - and fly the red PT flag, which might be mistaken for a Chinese one - and then sail into Argy territorial waters....perhaps they could turn you into fish food.

    Not quite right. The SOE you mention is healthy. What they did was cut an offshore subsidiary adrift.

    China will still be here 10, 100, 1000 years from now as it was 3000 years ago.

    As they are forced to allow more internal consumption they become more important and more interesting for the rest of us.

    As copper prices can be a barometer for the health of the global economy, alcohol imports can be a measure of internal consumption. As long as China continues to import more and more wine (especially Chilean red) and whisky it is all going to be ok.

    11. It will break into 8 provinces with a loose Federal Gov't within a decade.
    You should probably stop reading just headlines and start reading the full articles.

    Wine is my business. I don't need the headline or the article.

    “one of the big SOEs defaulted”, you should probably read the headline properly first, then progress to the article.

    I will never buy a Chilean wine. And yet I will do against propaganda. Included in China!

    Interesting that you think wine consumption is a good indicator of political stability.

    @14 Brasshole
    Do you even know what wine is ? it's not that grape juice you drink down south...

    @15 Lucifer
    Agree that the consumption of wine, alone, is not necessarily an indicator of political STability, but it sure is a reliable barometer when it comes to political INSTability associated with an internal crisis/ recession.......ever since the PT sponsored corruption scheme in PB, as well as the truth about the economy came to light (2014), the consumption of all superfluous products, including wine, has dropped drastically.... today you can buy good wine for 50% of what it cost two years ago, as wine importers/ distributors are struggling to survive.

    17. I am not sure why they keep saying Brazil is in a Recession when its clearly in a Depression.

    Brazil and China have the same disease with similar symptoms but on a whole different scale.
    Brazil doesn't have far to go to the bottom
    China is inchng their way to collapse
    They're bankrupt but they just don't know it yet.
