Filip Kovačević: Will China Have Final Say on Next UN Secretary-General? #028
Dr. Filip Kovačević discusses the latest news on NATO’s progress in Montenegro, how 2016 will be an important election year in the Balkans and for the United Nations, which will select a new Secretary-General. His thesis is that the new appointment may come from the Balkans and that China has a big role to play in the decision-making process. We also discuss Newsbud and the Kickstarter launched by FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds hoping to start a new, vibrant and independent news media organization.
