The Siamese cat and the Russian bear


From Arun, April 16, 2015
A box on the left: Q-Kon: Arun Watcharasawat [the column’s name and the cartoonist]
Title on the right: Big bear the true friend
Top Left: “Moody’s” cuts the credit of the Russia’s bonds to “junk.”
Bear: Maew… [meaning “cat”]
Siamese cat: What, bear?
A bear: Nothing… Just want to make sure whether I still have a friend.
[Refers to the credit cut by the rating company Moody’s Investor Service to Russia’s credit due to the decline of oil prices. The Thai junta has maintained closer ties with Russia. In the cartoon the American eagle in the top right watches the pair.]
