BEIJING - The priorities of China's diplomacy this year are to uphold peace and tackle thorny regional and international issues through dialogues, consultation and negotiation responsibly, Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi said Tuesday.

China would further consolidate the friendly cooperation with other countries, and regional and international organizations to expand common interests and jointly tackle global challenges, so as to maintain world peace and boost development, Yang told reporters at a press conference during the nation's annual parliamentary session.

China's diplomatic work aims to create a more favorable external environment this year by properly tackling external risks and challenges to serve the country's  primary goal of transforming economic development mode in a fast pace.

"China will continue to conduct diplomacy from all dimensions and in a wide range and make further innovations in theories and practices so as to make positive contributions to the opening of the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China and the full implementation of the 12th Five-Year Plan," the foreign minister said.

He also noted that the world has undergone profound and complex changes.

"The trend of peace and development is gathering momentum while the world is closely interdependent, but the impacts of international financial crisis are still with us. The global economy is recovering slowly. The challenges from climate change, energy and food security remain prominent. All these issues will leave major impacts to the global situations and China's diplomacy in the time to come," he said.

In a lengthy review of China's diplomacy over the past decade, Yang said China has actively participated in global governance, facilitated the international system to develop in a direction favorable to the developing countries, and devoted itself to expanding the representation and influence of China and the developing countries at large in international affairs.

"Over the past decade, China has become an active participant making constructive contributions in dealing with regional and international challenges, especially the hot-spot issues, and an import engine to drive global economic growth," Yang said.
Yang said that the Iran nuclear issue should be resolved through dialogues and cooperation but not confrontations and sanctions.

Yes, I agree.

China should also promote harmonization of exchange rate policies throughout the region.  If China continues to liberalize its currency policies while smaller countries continue their currency manipulation, then America will import goods from other countries and there will be no economic progress made for America or China.

After the serfs were driven off the land they were subjected to slavery to the dollar.
Some things have never changed.

Written on the occasion of the massacre at Manchester.

Percy Bysshe Shelley was in Italy when he heard the news of the Peterloo Massacre. He immediately responded by writing The Mask of Anarchy. In The Call to Freedom Shelley ended his argument for non-violent mass political protest with the words:

‘Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number—
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you—
Ye are many—they are few.’

by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Like Thomas Paine, Shelley was condemned by the British and wrote in exile
What's on your mind...

Soft power must be backed up with Raw Power if China's global stance is to be taken seriously!

Here's a nice little excerpt from Marc Faber said on Tuesday, 6th March 2011

.....the moniker "Dr Doom", earlier told the conference that the likelihood of war in the Middle East was boosted by Western powers' imperatives of keeping China in check, given its dependence on Middle Eastern oil.
"The Americans and the western powers know very well they cannot contain China economically.... but one way to contain China is to switch on and switch off the oil tap from the Middle East," he said.
"I happen to think the Middle East will go up in flames," he said.

The ability to project military power should be China's top priority if it is to protect its crucial trade and commodity links from sabotags on the drawing board by its many envious enemies in the West.
