9:32 pm
the nationalist who moved over to ty one to one be keen. actually the official representative of the china in the united nations. but that was later taken away. and the people's republic of china was installed asked me official the percentage of the un at this time. so since then, it has always considered itself as the rightful a representative of all chinese people, including ty one. and but i won since it's been. been governed separately all this time. they have considered themselves as independent in 1986, became more formally a democracy. so that's one of the important things to know. came to seoul, expand a little bit about, you know, the provocative nature >> pelosi's trip because clearly it provoked the ire of

9:36 pm
and if you remember, like you said, there's a problem with the supply chain right in terms of the international audience it's a thing. well, pelosi said that it was too show support for democratic governments and that. is that it's probably good in the in the in the theoretical sense that whether or not it will really manifest in the country. but haley is another question. however, that congress did pass a type ii at. this is really giving them a strong support for the elections, ok? but learned a lot and indeed, it is all about the chips is not. >> thank so much for speaking with cal state east bay, professor doctor maria, our to have a good evening. >> coming up next in sports, just a couple of days after
