Earlier this year, the state-run China Daily newspaper published an article in which it asked, "How can China make more friends?"

I am a senior citizen and depend soley on public transport to move around. The public bus service in Seremban is most deplorable. I have to wait at least 45 minutes to an hour just to board a bus that passes by Jalan Rasah. I live off the main road, so what more if a person were to stay at some remote housing area. This is not something new as the situation has been going on for many years. ...
On the record
Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks. The sanctions are unfair, the Iranian people are suffering, and our (nuclear) activities are legal. These sanctions are illegal and only benefit Israel.
