Kishida to stress rules-based global order,

There is NO 'Global order' !

The rules trying to be enforced by we know who are basically a large pathetic joke

-14 ( +11 / -25 )

Now what is this "rules-based international order" they all wax lyrically about...

What is means is small bunch of neo-colonialist countries get to dictate the rules and decide who and when they apply to as they see fit. It's a politically correct way in this day and age to say there should be a master-servant relationship between nations. The masters are first-class, while most others, the serfs, are second and third.

When emerging nations don't toe the line, they get branded with nasty names, sanctions and worse. This new world order will be enforced down the barrel of a gun. The G-7 ruling elites, like Kishida here, are obsessed with maintaining hegemony and unipolarity while fighting tooth and nail to prevent a multipolar world. It's a real 19th/20th century mindset. The guy shaking Fumio's hand subscribes to this backward mentality too.

Kishida is also expected to propose a multinational framework to discuss the development and use of AI and its spread of disinformation.

However Japan's not a leader of AI or has good cybersecurity

Kishida's spread of false promises and dithering could also be observed as disinformation

The fact that Kishida is attempting to portray Japan as being the leaders of everything is also disinformation

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said Wednesday that he will stress the need for a rules-based international order

It would be nice if Kishida would stress a "rules based order" to his own LDP party members with their tax fraud, illegal campaign donations, donations from religious orgs, and slush fund embezzlement.

Things that would get the ordinary citizen investigated fined and jailed under the "rules based order".

Maybe if more did not see the hollowness of such rhetoric, especially abroad, there would be more respect for the "rules based order".

But LDP don’t follow any rules or laws here in Japan. Kishid’s international propaganda.

Can't even get full support from his own party, just how does he plan to lead the world? Lame duck trying so hard to be relevant.

-4 ( +8 / -12 )

The man is a laughing stock!

-9 ( +7 / -16 )

His words are just to impress the domestic media of his country as here in the West and in our G7 countries such words are even not news of Japan leading the world in something.

-10 ( +7 / -17 )

Fumio wants "rules-based" with fries and lots of fine-print goal post-moving gravy clauses to go. Wakarimashita!

-7 ( +4 / -11 )

Good idea, but would it be possible to establish rules the would apply to the USA, which seems to want be an exception to many rules.

Indeed. It's just means one set of rules for the crooks, who can bend and break them at whim with little fear of punishment, and another set for the rest of us. Both intra- and internationally.

French PM being half the age of the average Japanese ministers...

Quick, tell us what the OECD does without doing an internet search. Put this Euro centric fossil to bed.

More of the usual waste of money nonsense by Kishida in a futile attempt to improve his ratings before elections. And they only follow the rules when it suits them.

2 ( +4 / -2 )

You mean like no currency manipulation?

1 ( +3 / -2 )

Wow so we're all on the same page of agreement on this topic.

How refreshing

Now if kishy wishy dither daudle could abide by his own rules and lead by example that would be magnificent.

“I would like to stress that Japan will take a leading role in creating and strengthening a free, fair and rules-based international economic order,”

As others noted - domestically there seems to be a lack of "free, fair and rules based order", with consistent manipulation of many things from electoral gerrymandering to pension shock to tax gaming to fiscal policy woes to welfare squeezing etc etc.

Wrap all of this around an ongoing Everest of scandals and duplicity, and you get a mockery of a standard to be used to "educate the world".

Kishida trying desperately to prop up his image using good old "slap-on-the-back-ism" from the global community.

There's nothing free and fair about the way millions of people in Japan are suffering due to LDPs "rules"!!!

@dagon

I'd add last year's Draconian immigration law amendment which actually is against international law. A country is changing its own rules to not abide by international rules but poses as an enforced of a rule-based order. Japan is in good company though.

They represent the countries ultimately allied against China in WW3. Perhaps not Turkey or South America.

And nearly one third of Biden, Trump…We need politicians in their forties and fifties which are the best to lead a nation. They offer the best mixed of experience and energy.

Kishi, get back and put yourself to work..

The only Global Order dictators like Putin recognize is one in which everyone else bows to their whims.

The Japanese version of "Rules based adherence" is unfortunately "absolute" without any chance of divergence regardless upon exceptional circumstances. This is why Japan is not a Good example of setting rules that have to be followed, since Japan is inherently inflexible and does not adapt well to changing situations.
