Portuguese-speaking diplomats, as well as Europe, protect their eastern ties, in a resilient waiting rhythm that allows one day to unite the ends between two powers that risk a Cold War that does not serve the general and planetary interest.

More pragmatic, Xi Jinping is again launching challenges to negotiations so that Washington and Beijing understand each other in key sectors such as financial regulation, economic opening (two-way) or the map of the blocks of ideological influence … But there is an elephant in the room; or a cat hidden with its tail out: quantum computing and artificial intelligence scare the West, because they foreshadow Chinese leadership.
