  • Curious: DFAT's bio page for Brendan Nelson refers to him as Ambassador to the EU, Belgium and Luxembourg, but is silent about his appointment as Representative to NATO and Special Representative to the WHO.
  • Japan is opening a military base in Djibouti. No, really.
  • Following on from Graeme Dobell's recent post and a speech by ASEAN Secretary-General Surin Pitsuwan, the Council on Foreign Relations' Evan Feigenbaum asks, 'just how "central" is ASEAN?'
  • Unstaged photos of Kim Jong Il, who has just arrived in China (h/t Passport). North Korea Leadership Watch has all the links you need about the visit.
  • When old powers clash with new: Der Spiegel has insider details of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's confrontation with China and India at the Copenhagen conference. (H/t Drum.)
