    What does intense mean in' intense relationships'?

    Does it mean warm or tense?

    "in my new article on his foreign policy, I make note of his strong belief that countries tend to act in what their leaders perceive to be their core interests, and I’ve come to see that Obama doesn’t place enormous value in the notion that well-developed personal relationships between leaders could ever trump the cold-eyed pursuit of those interests. Nevertheless, he has intense relationships with many world leaders—and he has become, in his last years as president, a mentor to a handful of important new ones."

    It means neither.

    Have you looked up "intense" in a dictionary?

    find an answer.
    I looked up it in dictionary before, but in Chinese there's no counterpart, so it's hard for me to understand.
    Thanks

    Do you mean that you have looked it up in an English>Chinese dictionary? If that is what you mean and you did not find the word, you need to look it up in a standard English dictionary, in which the definition is given in English.

    Click HERE to look up any English word and find links to lots of dictionary definitions. Bookmark that website (www.onelook.com) and use it regularly.
