Maybe they can bring in a motivational speaker and have team building activities.

As for the gathering on nuclear issues, Kamikawa, who became the foreign minister in September 2023, will highlight Japan's advocacy for the Hiroshima Action Plan and the Hiroshima Vision on Nuclear Disarmament, according to the sources.

Continuing to pretend the existing Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons doesn't really exist. Just sign up if you are really committed to the prohibition of nukes.

Good idea, growing missile shortages in West due to US NATO Ukraine proxy war going nowhere and mid-east chaos that expanding, putting Taiwan more in 'play' for China due to reduced US deterrence capabilities.

Other big risk is total collapse of Ukraine, NATO forces of approx. 100k now amassing on Ukraine's western border for 'training' purposes, entering Ukraine as result.

Putin has indicated such NATO action would cause WW III and it seems likely he'd use hypersonic tactical nukes to liquidate NATO troops, NOT just a 'security operation'.

MUCH to discuss, assuming we make it to MARCH!

There's that phrase again: "proxy war." Try "Putin's war of conquest," as that's what it actually is.

putting Taiwan more in 'play' for China due to reduced US deterrence capabilities.

Nothing has changed in the Indo-Pacific. Invading Taiwan would be a disaster for China and everyone else, with or without Ukraine and the Middle East.

This is likely still accurate:

Ukraine isn't about to totally collapse, and 100k of NATO forces aren't about to enter Ukraine.

Putin has indicated such NATO action would cause WW III and it seems likely he'd use hypersonic tactical nukes to liquidate NATO troops, NOT just a 'security operation'.

Putin will do what he will do, but if he attacks NATO troops, Russia is toast. He will then likely wander carelessly into a bullet or fall out of a window with a helping hand from the Siloviki.

MUCH to discuss, assuming we make it to MARCH!

Yes, no doubt you'll be repeating all the same propaganda through March and well beyond, as you always do.

Debate on Ukraine conflict, exactly why continue fighting when approx. 10M former Ukrainians LEGALLY decided for CAUSE to become Russian Federation citizens?

10year old Ukraine Civil War legally and practically/see resolved above. They will never be Ukrainian, due to known human, property & citizenship rights violations.

EU publicly criticized Zelensky numerous times for anti-democratic behavior towards it's Russian speaking former citizens in years after their Civil war began.

Russia legally assisting those seeking their legal independence for cause, like US in Yugoslavia in 1990's.

What's objective or more fighting in Ukraine given above reality? Key issue that needs to be discussed in March, what's being achieved other than death, destruction & failed Ukraine state that's destabilizing entire world?

Still Putin's War and afaik, the JASSM-ERs are untapped. Certainly not tapped for Ukraine.

Other big risk is total collapse of Ukraine, NATO forces of approx. 100k now amassing on Ukraine's western border for 'training' purposes, entering Ukraine as result.

Yeah, no, they might be there to give Putin an obscene gesture if he ever gets in range of seeing it, but the West respects Ukraine's territorial integrity.

Putin has indicated such NATO action would cause WW III and it seems likely he'd use hypersonic tactical nukes to liquidate NATO troops, NOT just a 'security operation'.

Putin threatens liquidation without realizing he would be liquidated. What a shocker.

MUCH to discuss, assuming we make it to MARCH!

No, much to gaslight. I guess for you that is much to discuss.

Debate on Ukraine conflict, exactly why continue fighting when approx. 10M former Ukrainians LEGALLY decided for CAUSE to become Russian Federation citizens?

Russian troops are still illegally on the territory of Ukraine and trying desperately to eliminate Ukraine.

10year old Ukraine Civil War legally and practically/see resolved above. They will never be Ukrainian, due to known human, property & citizenship rights violations.

Two year old illegal Russian invasion still not turned back.

EU publicly criticized Zelensky numerous times for anti-democratic behavior towards it's Russian speaking former citizens in years after their Civil war began.

Yes, the EU probably took a more moderate position before Vlad went full psychopath.

Russia legally assisting those seeking their legal independence for cause, like US in Yugoslavia in 1990's.

Nope, still illegal. And NATO didn't run off with territory of Yugoslavia. In fact, Russia approved KFOR.

What's objective or more fighting in Ukraine given above reality? Key issue that needs to be discussed in March, what's being achieved other than death, destruction & failed Ukraine state that's destabilizing entire world?

ChatGPT needs to have it's English fine tuned but the objective is Ukraine's survival.

Agreed, Ukraine and Russia need to settle matters, continued conflict only making recovery more difficult for Ukraine. How to settle in a peaceful, fair and just manner is not easy, will involve lots of practical compromise.

Current Ukraine situation unsustainable, as people will continue to leave until there's certainty that peace and security can be maintained in order for recovery can begin.

Above, DIFFICULT objective that needs real discussion!

The only just thing that is possible without a Russian withdrawal is an unconditional ceasefire, which is blazingly simple to agree to.

the Japanese know the capabilities of nuclear weapons thanks to their friends))) they are right that the Japanese are for a world without nuclear weapons, so let them start and begin with themselves and their allied friends.

Afraid the Russian speaking former Ukrainians now legally Russian Federation citizens in the Donbas and Crimea are going nowhere, so that's a non-starter.

Ukraine should worry about its REMAINING citizens who continue to flee to Europe, Russia and elsewhere do this conflict. Not focus on approx. 10million former Ukrainians who now happily call themselves Russian citizens.

Practical reality matters and with peace, some will return to Ukraine from abroad, though probably not many now in Russia as they've changed their citizenship for CAUSE.

Nothing legal about what Russia did.

They do that by keeping their remaining territory from the fascist invader.

10year civil war has played out in Ukraine and is largely resolved. Like a bad divorce on steroids. Newly minted Russian Federation citizens in the Donbas and Crimea achieved their legal independence, logical the territory where they've long resided follows in their footsteps.

Much like Yugoslavia, partitioning works, and peace and prosperity will follow with the passage of time!

Norway's Intelligence Services and Elon Musk both agree that Ukraine is now losing badly in its fight with Russia, heavily outmanned and outgunned.

Time to save Ukraine from itself, Ukraine war leadership like junkie that wants another 'fix', walls are closing in fast.

Nope, not even close. The criminals who began a civil conflict have not yet been apprehended and tried for their crimes and Ukraine still needs to liberate stolen territory. So not even close to being resolved.

Newly minted Russian Federation citizens in the Donbas and Crimea achieved their legal independence

Ukraine has not held any such vote in occupied territory, and it is the only legal authority able to do so. Russian sham votes hold no legality and are irrelevant. But everyone knows this.

Putin still yet to be apprehended and tried for his war crime, and thousands of cases yet to be tried.

Russia running out of missiles and artillery rounds, having to source stocks from NK and Iran in order to continue its invasion of Ukraine

2 year invasion of Russia still the height of illegality.

Much like Yugoslavia, partitioning works, and peace and prosperity will follow with the passage of time!

Your country needs partitioning, peace, and prosperity I tell you!!!

Norway's Intelligence Services and Elon Musk both agree that Ukraine is now losing badly in its fight with Russia, heavily outmanned and outgunned.

Oh, well I guess if the guy that fired and then had to rehire someone on X says it is over it must be over.

Time to save Ukraine from itself, Ukraine war leadership like junkie that wants another 'fix', walls are closing in fast.

Ukraine is fighting for its independence from the bloodthirsty maniac in the Kremlin.
