“What I can tell everyone is that that is a piece of purely false information,” Wang said.

But the balance of power in Central Asia has changed dramatically in just 120 days; all because a senile American President wanted an “accomplishment” while eating ice cream and taking afternoon naps.
Wow, was that easy to predict:
