Global SITREP for Thursday, 09 May 2024

Good morning, and welcome to the Global Situation Report for Thursday, 09 May 2024.

  • Global Rollup
    • 73% of Filipinos want increased military action in the South China Sea to assert dominance over territory, according to the Filipino state survey service OCTA.
    • Chinese President Xi Jinping declared Serbia to be the first European country with a “shared future” at a joint press conference with Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić. (“Shared future,” a modern Chinese phrase, is likely a callback to Imperial China’s heavenly mandate called “tianxia.” Shared future and tianxia both denote an inclusion in the Chinese order. As Xi notes, this is the first European state, he likely intends to extend this status to others. – J.V.)
