#artificialintelligence

Conditional statements refers to statement that are only executed if a condition holds true. If the statement is false another statement is executed. This is the basic logic of an if statement. The following chart is an example of the logic followed by an if statement whereby if the value of x is less than 5 'smaller' is printed to the screen.

China blamed for ASEAN U-turn on South China Sea

The Japan Times

MANILA – Chinese pressure was blamed Thursday for a stunning diplomatic U-turn by Southeast Asian Nations that saw them retract a statement sounding alarm over Beijing's island building in the South China Sea. The chaotic events at the end of a meeting of foreign ministers from China and the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) on Tuesday have led to allegations of bullying by Beijing. The document, released by ASEAN member Malaysia and described as a joint statement from the bloc, warned developments in the hotly contested South China Sea could "undermine peace, security and stability." The statement specified "land reclamation" as a source of tension, a clear reference to China's massive island building activities where it is trying to cement a claim to almost the whole sea. But just hours later, Malaysia said the grouping was retracting the statement for "urgent amendments," but offered no reason.
