Watch: Why is China picking so many fights - and where are they leading? | Conflict Zone (
The West is pushing back against Beijing over a growing list of human rights concerns, including its security law in Hong Kong and efforts to extinguish dissent on the semi-autonomous territory. Where are these battles heading when trust in China - greatly damaged over the coronavirus pandemic and attempts to silence early warnings - is so low? Our guest this week on Conflict Zone is Wang Huiyao, a government advisor in Beijing and president of the Center for China and Globalisation think tank.

    Francisco Gimeno - BC Analyst DW's programs usually are of the highest quality. Even here, the host is trying to get proper answers from a Chinese government advisor on why China is on the news lately mostly about conflicts or words with everyone else. His answers? "Everything is a misunderstanding, the Chinese government doesn't want any conflict". Somehow 20 minutes of that is annoying. Judge by yourself.
