In Singapore, Li Zhichun sat leisurely in the Li Group and looked at the company’s statements. Although the financial crisis had affected the company’s performance, it had not affected Li Zhichun’s good mood!
The company’s performance was really nothing in comparison to the large sum of money swindled from the Huang Family.
Since the Li Family had an iron mine in Country X, Li Zhichun also paid particular attention to the news from Country X. He knew that General Kars settled several armed forces in the country quickly and truly seized Country X’s internal affairs.
Li Family and General Kars still had a friendship, so Li Zhichun was still very happy that General Kars could have today’s success. After all, after the environment there was better, Li Zhichun was considering whether to increase the investment in Country X.
If there is money to be earned, who doesn’t want to earn it? Especially, this kind of a hundred percent profit made Li Zhichun very tempted. Therefore, he had his younger son, Li Tianyu, pay attention to the news of Country X in the past few days, and then report to him.
The phone rang. He looked at the transit number that was transferred over, and Li Zhichun could confirm that it was a call from Li Tianyu. There must be new news coming from over there.
“Hello? Tianyu?” Li Zhichun laughed as he answered the phone.
“Father, something happened…” Li Tianyu’s voice seemed a little rushed.
“What happened?” Li Zhichun frowned. Why are the two sons the same? With just a small matter, they say something happened. Can’t they be a little bit steadier?
“The Country X authorities want to recover all the mines in the territory and then redistribute them…” said Li Tianyu.
” Oh ? Does that mean that we can get bigger and better mines?” Li Zhichun was tempted and asked promptly.
“We can get it, but we have to bid for it…” Li Tianyu explained.
“Bid? It’s not a direct replacement…” Li Zhichun was disappointed. He thought he could take this opportunity. General Kars could give the Li Family a free replacement for a gold mine or even a diamond mine…
“Not only is it not a replacement, but they will also take back our iron ore mine!” said Li Tianyu.
“What? The iron ore mine will also be retrieved?” Li Zhichun was suddenly shocked after listening. “Why do they want to retrieve it?”
“The notice has been sent out… The contract is signed with the previous provisional government or the armed forces, so it is an invalid contract. It is necessary to recover all the domestic minerals and re-open the bid…” said Li Tianyu.
“Isn’t this the same as what happened to the Huang Family in the beginning?” Li Zhichun said after listening, “But didn’t we sign a contract with General Kars at the time? This should not belong to another provisional government or armed forces, right?”
“Now, General Kars has established a firm foothold, and he needs money. It is natural to single out the mine owners of these minerals.” Li Tianyu smiled bitterly, “But we directly signed a contract with General Kars, so it should be effective. This notice has just been issued. Father, do you want to see if you can communicate with General Kars?”
” En , I will call General Kars to ask.” Li Zhichun nodded. Li Zhichun didn’t have much to worry about the iron mine contract. After all, he had a contract with General Kars. It was not considered to be with other forces. So when he thought of this, Li Zhichun also became relieved.
In addition to being relieved, he had also come up with some ideas.
Re-bidding… Does it mean that I can bid for a gold mine or a diamond mine? If Kars really stands firm, then the situation in Country X should be stable. I won’t be afraid that after signing the contract, it will be void in the middle of it… And the most crucial point is that I have a good relationship with General Kars. Is it possible to for him to take extra care of me during the bidding…?
Thinking of this, Li Zhichun quickly called General Kars.
Kars was reviewing some documents when he heard the secretary saying that Li Zhichun was calling. He didn’t want to answer it, but hesitated, and allowed the secretary to transfer the call.
After all, when he started out, Li Zhichun gave him some help. Although the Li Family had made a lot of money from the iron mine in the past few years, General Kars was still very polite to Li Zhichun.
“Hello, this is Kars.” Kars picked up the phone.
“General Kars, hello, I am Li Zhichun.” Li Zhichun greeted and said, “I heard that all the enemy forces in Country X have been cleared. Congratulations, General Kars.”
” Hehe , thank you.” Kars didn’t know why Li Zhichun called. Since he didn’t say it directly, Kars had to placate him and chuckled.
Don’t hit a smiling person. Since Li Zhichun came to congratulate him, then Kars would not say anything else.
“Right… there is one thing. I heard that you called for bids for all the mines there?” Li Zhichun also knew that he only needed to exchange a few conventional greetings. General Kars must be very busy. Saying too much would make others annoyed, so he broached the subject directly.
” En , there is such a thing. Why? Do you want to bid for a mine?” Kars asked.
“Yes… I have this plan, but there is still something else…” Li Zhichun said, “Our Li Family’s iron mine… was originally contracted with you. You see, this time, will it not be taken back?”
” Oh , this thing…” Kars hesitated, then said, “The contract you signed with me is correct, but this time, it is operated by the military. I didn’t participate in this matter…”
“The military is your army. This shouldn’t be a problem, right?” Li Zhichun thought that Kars was playing with him, and said quickly.
“The military is now separate from me. I am only responsible for internal affairs. I am not involved in the military’s matters.” Kars felt that there was no need to explain too much to Li Zhichun. After all, this was a high-level matter. The Li Family were just small businessmen.
“Then we…” Li Zhichun had some difficulty. He didn’t expect General Kars to say this.
“So, then, when you explain it to them and show them our contract, there should be no problem.” General Kars hesitated and said, “If that’s really impossible, I will show up.”
The reason why Kars said this was because this contract was originally signed by him and Li Zhichun. Now that he backed out, he felt that he was smashing his own feet!
After all, it was the bidding stage. If those who come to bid saw that the contract he signed would also be reneged, what credibility was there?
