CHINA IS REPLACING ETHNIC LANGUAGES WITH MANDARIN
Wary of efforts by the US and West to bring about the collapse of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), particularly as memories of the disintegration of the erstwhile Soviet Union and collapse of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU) still remain sharply etched, Chinese President Xi Jinping has been focussed on strengthening the CCP to ensure it retains its monopoly on power. Xi Jinping has also long had an interest in united front work and ethnic minority issues and in 2017 took over as head of the powerful Central Leading Small Group on United Front Work, which exercises direct control over the formulation and implementation of policies for China’s ethnic minorities. Since then there has been a noticeable uptick in united front activity concerning the ethnic minorities.

CHINESE REACTIONS TO U.S. PRESIDENT TRUMP’S POLICIES ON TAIWAN
Recent US pronouncements regarding Taiwan have annoyed Beijing and the US’ plans to send its Ambassador to the UN, Ms. Kelly Craft, to Taiwan provoked a sharp response. Hers would have been the first trip at this level since 1968. Though Craft's visit, which was scheduled to start on January 13 was abruptly cancelled at the last minute, she did later have a virtual meeting with Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen.

XI JINPING FURTHER STRENGTHENS CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY'S 'MAGIC WEAPON' - THE UNITED FRONT WORK DEPARTMENT
China is making efforts to arrest the slide in US-China relations and lower temperatures after Joe Biden takes over as President on January 20. In addition to Chinese Politburo member and former Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi’s plans for visiting Washington this week, a Chinese trade delegation is likely to travel to the US shortly. Confirming that China will use all the levers it possibly can, Chinese President Xi Jinping on January 6 wrote to Howard Schultz, Honorary Chairman of the Board of Directors of Starbucks Corporation of the United States, emphasising that China "will provide a broader space for companies from all over the world, including Starbucks and other American companies, to develop in China".

AN AUTHORITATIVE CHINESE ASSESSMENT OF HOW CHINA VIEWS INDIA
Far from any signs of an end to the military stand-off between India and China, or that tensions between the two will ease, China’s mood towards India is hardening. There are indications that China sees the current confrontation as the beginning of a period of sustained, protracted pressure on India. The military confrontation in the Himalayas is likely to escalate, with a high possibility of clashes occurring periodically commencing from Spring this year. These could include sharp, swift military actions.

CHINA DEBATES POLICY TOWARDS U.S. AS BIDEN'S ADMINISTRATION TAKES OVER
China’s leadership echelons have been very apprehensive about anti-China actions the Trump Administration might take in its last days. Zhou Li, a former career diplomat who is presently senior researcher at the Chongyang Institute of Financial Research of Renmin University and Director of the China Russia Humanities Exchange Research Center, had in mid-2020 warned that China must prepare for the deterioration and “full escalation of the struggle” in Sino-US relations. He anticipated a string of punitive actions by the Trump Administration, adding that "decoupling" is ultimately inevitable and that the “difficulties and challenges China will face will be unprecedentedly complex and unprecedentedly severe”.
