If that is the case I regard China like the Borg in Star Trek.

I think that this is the first time that I heard of the Harry Potter children book series being used in that way.

Someone might want to let the Ambassador know that this is a children’s fantasy fiction, and this magical world does not really exist in the real world.

This might be a good time to insert a reminder that, whatever the current politico-economic status of the People’s Republic of China, the Chinese people themselves did suffer a great deal at the hands of the Japanese during the period 1937-1945.
