China To US: Stop Meddling In Asia-Pacific Region

A senior Chinese official has warned the United States and its allies against stirring up troubles across the volatile Asia-Pacific region.

On Tuesday, Chinese Defense Minister Chang Wanquan warned the United States to “keep (Japan) within bounds and not to be permissive and supportive.”

“It is Japan who is being provocative against China,” Chang told a news conference after talks with US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel in Beijing, adding, “If you come to the conclusion that China is going to resort to force against Japan that is wrong … we will not take the initiative to stir up troubles,” Chang added.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hong Lei had recently said Washington needed to be more responsible and stop spreading rumors put about by “right-wing Japanese forces.”

This comes as Beijing has long been engaged in a dispute with Tokyo over the sovereignty of the group of the uninhabited islands in the East China Sea, which are known as Diaoyu in China and Senkaku in Japan.

Senior Chinese officials have repeatedly called on Washington not to take sides over the issue.

The developments come as Washington and Beijing have locked horns over a range of issues.

On Sunday, China warned the US not to interfere in Hong Kong’s affairs, following a meeting between US Vice President Joe Biden and anti-Beijing activists.

A Chinese government spokesman urged Washington to “proceed discreetly” regarding the affairs of Hong Kong to avoid damage to China-US ties.

Beijing has demanded a clear explanation from Washington over reports of espionage by the US National Security Agency (NSA) on Chinese companies and institutions.

Senior officials in Beijing say they are gravely concerned about the claims and demand that any such spying be stopped.

  1. It is not before time that China lays its cards on the table, particularly regarding the intended encroachment of the USA into the affairs of a multitude of smaller Asian nations.. The days of American forces simply waltzing ‘unchecked’ across small Asian countries are long gone.. Following the end of hostilities of WW11, the USA forged extremely strong economic ties with Japan.. However, the current wrangle between Japan and China over the sovereignty of several small islands, is a wholly Asian affair… The USA would be well advised to ‘back off’, as China, by far the largest Asian nation, will not be dictated to by any other nation, particularly from outside their own region / continent… As for the rest of the ‘West’, particularly the European Union, to simply follow the USA could bring about untold problems, in particular with regard to its economy..We only have to look at the USA and its sanctions against Russia.. If China chose to implement such, the European Union, which currently has serious financial problems, would break down completely… OBSERVATION – throughout decades US forces have entered and destroyed the infrastructures of numerous nations.. Take a look at the devastation to the lives of millions upon millions of completely innocent men, women and children, particularly inhabitants of the Middle -East… Apart from millions having been simply wiped out, the number of refugees created cannot be accurately calculated.. Further, when American forces leave areas of ‘conflict’, they historically leave the indigenous peoples with far more problems than ever existed before invasion.. Lastly, every conflict involving US forces puts pressure on every nation neighbouring areas of conflict by overloading these nations with refugees.. The USA does NOT cater for the very people whose lives they are responsible for having devastated…EMEK..
