Tuilaepa and China

Dear Editor,

Re: China aids Samoa 

I wonder what the Chinese ambassador thought about that part in Tuilaepa’s book where he told off the Chinese delegation in typically straight-talking Stui style at some international forum?

The Chinese were complaining about the presence of the Taiwanese delegation with badges saying “Republic of China”. They rang him non-stop in the middle of the night and Stui told them to bugger off. 

Then next morning he met with the Chinese delegation and told them off. Then he sent in the Taiwan delegation and told them off. 

They were both threatening to make a big scene at the international conference where Samoa was the chair.
