2月14日福建厦门与金门之间发生一起翻船事件,造成两个大陆渔民死亡。事发至今还无法了结。 台湾海巡署称,载有四人的大陆渔船当天违规越界进入台湾的禁限制水域,在被台湾巡逻艇拦截时,不慎翻覆才导致两个大陆渔民死亡。但是随着更多具体情节流出,外界才知道,台湾巡逻艇的船头原来曾经撞到大陆渔船的船尾。台湾海巡署又声称当时来不及录像,所以没有录像证据。 这起事件的众多疑窦让大陆网民群起激愤。大陆海警船、渔政船也开始在厦门与金门之间的水域进行常态化巡逻,两岸的紧张局势升高。这起意外,要如何善了? 这期的早报播客《东谈西论》,听主持人韩咏红、《联合早报》中国新闻资深高级记者于泽远及台北特派员温伟中解析金门翻船事件。 延伸阅读: 金门渔民:野生黄鱼应节价飙 大陆渔民经常越界捕捞 韩咏红:金门翻船让大陆反切香肠推“行政统一” Tensions continue to escalate between China and Taiwan after a Chinese boat capsized near Kinmen on February 14, resulting in the death of two crew members. Kinmen is an island administered by Taipei but located just 5km from the mainland city of Xiamen.  The vessel, carrying four Chinese nationals, was pursued by the Taiwanese coast guard for intruding into prohibited waters. The two surviving Chinese fishermen were detained and deported back to mainland China a week after the incident. As more details emerged, public indignation grew. The fishermen claimed that their boat capsized because the Taiwanese coast guard’s patrol boat had collided with it. Taiwan’s Coast Guard Administration (CGA) subsequently admitted to collisions and stated it was unable to record video evidence of the incident.  Following the fatal incident, Beijing stepped up patrols around Taiwan’s waters. China claims Taiwan as part of its territory, and has never renounced the use of force to try to bring the self-ruled island under its control. In this episode of Global Heartbeat podcast, host Han Yong Hong invites Lianhe Zaobao’s China News Copy Editor Yu Zeyuan and Taipei correspondent Woon Wei Jong to dissect how the Kinmen boat incident may affect cross-strait relations.

今年2月4日,世界球王梅西所属的迈阿密国际足球俱乐部到香港参加表演赛,门票一早被抢购一空,还有中国内地球迷专程飞到香港看梅西。结果梅西完全没下场。比赛结束时,不满的观众大声喝倒彩,要求退票。这件事在香港引起轩然大波。梅西被质疑故意让香港难堪。 一波未平一波又起,一个多星期后,著名经济学家、摩根士丹利前亚洲区主席罗奇又在报章上撰文称:香港玩完了。罗奇的的证据是:1997年7月1日香港回归当天,香港恒生指数收盘1万6000点。如今,恒指也差不多是这个水平,等于回到原点。 过去几年,香港已经很少有让人乐观的新闻。香港玩完了,这是真的,还是国际舆论再次合力“唱衰”香港?这颗东方之珠要怎么重现昔日光彩? 这期的早报播客《东谈西论》,听主持人韩咏红和香港城市大学法学院教授、中国法与比较法研究中心主任王江雨从罗奇的撰文和梅西事件谈香港到底怎么了? 延伸阅读: 梅西:香港未登场与政治因素无关 李玉林:“梅西事件”照出了什么? Lionel Messi’ failure to play in the much-hyped friendly match sparked outrage in Hong Kong. The controversy intensified when the Argentinian football star took part in a match in Tokyo a few days later. The organiser of the ill-fated match in Hong Kong, said it would offer refunds of 50% in face of harsh criticisms from the Hong Kong government and football fans. Chinese state media and Hong Kong legislators have suggested that the debacle was a politically motivated snub. About a week later, Stephen Roach, a renowned economist and former chair of Morgan Stanley Asia wrote in a Financial Times commentary: “It pains me to admit it, but Hong Kong is now over.” He mentioned that the Hang Seng Index has been basically flat since the handover to China in 1997, and pointed out that the former British colony had the world’s worst-performing major stock market in the last 25 years. The Hang Seng index last month dropped below the 15,000-point mark, a return to levels not seen since 1997.     .  Confronted by dwindling optimism and international scepticism, what can Hong Kong do to regain its former glory? In this episode of Global Heartbeat podcast, host Han Yong Hong invites Professor Wang Jiang Yu from the City University of Hong Kong School of Law to weigh in on these issues and explore the implications for Hong Kong's future. Hosted by Lianhe Zaobao’s Associate Editor, Han Yong Hong, Global Heartbeat is a Mandarin weekly news and current affairs podcast that is updated every Tuesday, 7.00 PM SGT.

世界第四人口大国印度尼西亚将在2月14日举行五年一次的全国大选。在印尼2亿7000万人口中,有大约2亿名合格选民。他们将在三组候选人中,也就是国防部长普拉博沃、前雅加达特区首长阿尼斯及前中爪哇省省长甘查尔之中,选出他们心仪的候选人。 现任总统佐科不是候选人之一,但是他的影子却在这次选举中处处可见。佐科36岁的儿子吉布兰这次与普拉博沃搭档参选副总统。有人认为佐科在打造王朝政治。他为什么要这样做?以支持民主的形象上台的佐科是否晚节不保? 这期的早报播客《东谈西论》,听主持人韩咏红和著名印尼问题专家,新加坡尤索夫伊萨东南亚研究院资深访问研究员,南洋理工大学拉惹勒南国际研究院兼任教授廖建裕解析印尼总统大选。 延伸阅读: 廖建裕:辩论会后的印尼总统选举 国际特稿:印尼总统选举酝酿合纵连横 普拉博沃力拼一击即中 In what has been termed the world’s biggest election to be held in a day, approximately 205 million Indonesians are eligible to vote for their next president and vice-president on February 14. The voters will also choose their executive and legislative representatives at all administrative levels across the world's fourth most populous nation. The three pairs of candidates vying for president and vice-president include the defence minister Prabowo Subianto, former governor of Jakarta Anies Baswedan, and former Central Java governor Ganjar Pranowo.   Incumbent president Joko Widodo, popularly known as Jokowi, is constitutionally barred from seeking a third term. However, Mr Widodo’s influence is evident throughout this election. His eldest son, Gibran Rakabuming Raka, 36, is running for vice-president alongside Mr Prabowo. Dynastic politics has been the subject of debate and dominated the headlines, with some accusing Mr Widodo of attempting to retain his influence after leaving office. What are his intentions? Has he overplayed his hand? In this episode of Global Heartbeat podcast, Dr Leo Suryadinata, Senior Visiting Fellow at ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute and Professor (Adj.) at S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies at Nanyang Technological University, takes a deep dive into the upcoming Indonesia election with host Han Yong Hong.  Hosted by Lianhe Zaobao’s Associate Editor, Han Yong Hong, Global Heartbeat is a Mandarin weekly news and current affairs podcast that is updated every Tuesday, 7.00 PM SGT.

2024年台湾总统选举已经在1月13日落幕。民进党籍的候选人赖清德以四成选票在三角战中胜出。 迎接赖清德的绝非坦途。民进党失去了立法院多数优势,他将是一个弱势总统,领导一个弱势政府,面对来自内外的压力。美国总统拜登在第一时间就直言,美国不支持台独。南太平洋岛国瑙鲁也在两天内宣布与台湾断交,与中国大陆建交。 在这次选举前,北京已经将赖清德定性为台独顽固份子,并且警告如果赖清德当选,两岸将风高浪急。这次选举后,台海两岸的关系会出现怎样的新局?陆美台三方互动又会怎样影响台湾的发展以及亚太和平? 这期的早报播客《东谈西论》,听主持人韩咏红和淡江大学荣誉教授、亚太和平研究基金会及遠景基金会首席顾问赵春山详细解析。 延伸阅读: 分析:新总统520就职前北京将加大对台军事与经济施压 于泽远:赖清德上台将引发台海战争?

With the DPP losing its majority in the legislature, Mr Lai will face difficulties passing policies or setting the agenda. Shortly after the election, US President Joe Biden emphasised that the United States does not support Taiwan’s independence. Additionally, one of Taiwan’s remaining diplomatic allies, the Pacific Islands nation of Nauru, announced it was breaking ties with the island in favour of China, just days after the election. In the lead-up to the election, China repeatedly labelled Mr Lai as a dangerous separatist, warning that a win for the independence-leaning DPP’s candidate would pose a danger to relations.

How will the interactions among Mainland China, Taiwan and the US influence peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region?         In this episode of Global Heartbeat podcast, host Han Yong Hong and Tamkang University’s Graduate Institute of China Studies Honorary Professor Chao Chun-Shan discuss Lai’s win and its impact on cross-straits relations.

2023年的最后一个星期,中国一口气查处了11名军方高级将领,包括中国火箭军的两名前司令员、两名前副司令员、中国空军的原司令员等多名高层。这是继十月国防部长李尚福被免职后,中国再次展示出强烈的整军动作。 几乎同一时间,中国三大特大军事工业国有企业,中国航天科技集团、中国兵器工业集团及中国航天科工集团的高层也纷纷出事。 中国火箭军以及军工企业高层人员密集出事意味着什么?这对中国解放军的战斗力会造成什么冲击?原海军司令董军在十二月底接任国防部长又对外传达了什么信息? 这期的早报播客《东谈西论》,听主持人韩咏红和《联合早报》中国新闻资深高级记者于泽远解析强烈反腐对中国战力的影响力。 延伸阅读: 于泽远:一辈子犯了五辈子的罪 于泽远:中国军队反腐令人震撼 China concluded 2023 with a sweeping military purge, investigating 11 senior military officials, including former commanders and vice-commanders of the People’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) Rocket Force as well as the former Air Force chief.

今年11月底,一名马来西亚青年在社交媒体Tiktok上发表短视频,悬赏五百万元马币,暗杀首相安华。 安华所属的公正党青年团署理团长莫哈末卡米尔向警方报案。他谴责这是公然对安华发出死亡威胁,并且表示马来西亚有必要控制这类煽动情绪的仇恨言论。 悬赏杀首相或者公开诅咒政治人物,这只是网民的一种游戏,是逞一时的口舌之快,还是在埋藏对立、仇恨的种子?在朝野竞争激烈、族群分化的马来西亚,仇恨言论正越来越普遍,它已经发展成为仇恨政治了吗? 这期的早报播客《东谈西论》,听主持人韩咏红和马来西亚独立评论员及《联合早报》特约撰稿人林宏祥解析马来西亚仇恨政治这个话题的来龙去脉。 延伸阅读: 从诅咒政敌到悬赏杀首相 1980年代仇恨政治或重演 政策越趋保守 安华就是“绿潮”? Last month, a Malaysian man uploaded a video to TikTok offering a RM5 million (S$1.7 million) bounty for the assassination of Malaysian Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim. A police report was lodged against the individual by a youth member of the Malaysian premier’s party Parti Keadilan Rakyat, Mr Mohamad Shazrin Ezam. He condemned the video as a blatant death threat against Anwar and emphasised the need for Malaysia to control such hate speech that incites emotions. Investigations found that the 34-year-old suspect was new to TikTok and believed to have posted the video for fun. Intentional or otherwise, the video has raised the issue of hate politics in Malaysia. Is hate speech becoming increasingly common in a country marked by intense political competition and ethnic divisions? Has hate speech evolved into a form of hate politics? In this episode of Global Heartbeat podcast, host Han Yong Hong and Malaysia’s independent political commentator Lim Hong Siang share their thoughts on Malaysia’s political polarisation and the use of hate speech.
