Nikkei articles are pretty authoratative.Is this confirmed? When I googled "China Bhutan $10 billion" this japanese website seems to be the only source of this. It contains other stories of "Xi Jinpin's loyalists" and "black shirt man in China". I wish I have more time doing research,maybe later

I'll do a full piece analysis and expansion on this in a separate thread.
