How to contain the Chinese expansion

The decision of President Donald Trump to withdraw from the Nuclear Weapons Treaty signed in 1987 with Russia, the demonstrations on the increase of the nuclear arsenal and the statements of Vice President Mike Pence pose a new scenario in the relations between the United States and China. Until now, the commercial conflict with the imposition of reciprocal tariffs was the most serious symptom of the tension between the two countries, which could eventually be overcome through negotiation.

Vice President Mike Pence’s speech at the Hudson Institute in October presented a totalizing vision of the policy objectives of the United States towards China. In contrast to Trump, Vice President Pence has intellectual training, is conservative, an evangelical Christian and belongs to the structure of the Republican Party. The tenor of his speech recalls the era of the Cold War with Russia, when accusations were crossed about military spending, theft of technology, infiltration in educational centers and audiovisual media, press censorship, religious persecution, territorial expansion and interference in affairs internal

Mike Pence maintains that the concessions granted by the previous administrations had the purpose of achieving not only a greater economic opening but also greater political freedom and the implementation of the liberal principles of private property, religious freedom and the observance of human rights. Vice President Pence affirms, in a criticism of the Democrats, that this strategy was a failure. And while Beijing is still talking about “reform and opening up” according to the doctrine of Deng Xiaoping, the reality shows that these statements lack all content. On the contrary, President Xi Jinping has reaffirmed the socialist model with Chinese characteristics where the Communist Party will be strengthened to lead the country. Pence deplored the agreement with the Vatican, which, according to his words, confirms that China is not willing to allow religious freedom and will continue to control religious institutions.

Criticism transcends the questioning of commercial policy. The “Made in China 2025” program is characterized as an attempt to control 90% of the advanced industries to occupy a dominant position in the world economy. Vice President Pence recalls that China has increased its military budget to be equivalent to the budget of all the countries of Asia, developing an aggressive policy tending to evict the United States from the Western Indo-Pacific. The increase of the United States military budget to 716 billion seeks to face this challenge, preserve the hegemonic position and guarantee the protection of its allies in that region.

The United States also questions the “One way, one route” initiative, which makes millions of dollars available to the associated countries for infrastructure whose works must be carried out by Chinese companies. This program entitled “diplomacy of indebtedness” would seek to condition the political position of the recipient countries. The United States approved to counteract this scheme the law BUILD S. 2463, which creates the Development Finance Corporation with 60 billion to assist the private sector in the development of low-income countries that comply with foreign policy objectives.

The redefinition carried out by the vice president is similar to the policy of Ronald Reagan towards the Soviet Union remembered as Star Wars, which sought to force changes in the political system . Reagan, unlike Trump, was a conservative politician with firm convictions. The radicalized sectors of the Republican Party prefer this type of conflict policy that divides the fields and stigmatizes the enemy. But China is not in the same conditions as the Soviet Union and does not face the dangers of dissolution that were already perceived in the eighties. The speech of Vice President Pence was not improvised and marks a turning point in the policy of coexistence and collaboration between both countries.

Taiwan mobilizes against Chinese control with two demonstrations on the island

Taiwan mobilized Saturday against Chinese control, with two demonstrations, a radical independence movement in Taipei, to the north, and another one sponsored by the ruling Progressive Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaohsiung, to the south.

“In the face of Chinese oppression, we have to say a resounding no with a referendum,” former Security Council Secretary-General Kang Ning-Xiang said in a speech at the end of the independence march and rally in Taipei.

While the motto of the northern mobilization – sponsored by the Formosa Alliance and attended by 80,000 people, according to the organizers – was the referendum for independence, condemned by China and to which Beijing threatened to respond with the invasion of the island, the from the south was the opposition to China annexing Taiwan.

During the Taipei march posters were displayed for the “Referendum against Annexation” and, although it had the support of the PDP, the ruling party prohibited its officials from participating, to avoid further tensions with China.

Beijing has not explicitly threatened the war in the event of a referendum on the island on independence, but the Chinese law Antisecession clearly specifies as a reason for the invasion any measure leading to formal separation.

Radical separatists, supported by ex-presidents Lee Teng-hui and Chen Shui-bian, want the government to react more determinedly to Beijing’s growing international and military hostility on the international front and in the military field, with constitutional changes that will eliminate the Chinese footprints in the island political system.

The PDP, in the face of Chinese, the US and domestic political pressure, seeks to preserve self-government and democracy, without going beyond the red line that triggers a military intervention by China, increasingly powerful economically, politically and militarily.

In the south, the manifestation of the PDP ruler and pro-independence sent out slogans such as “Against annexation, protects Taiwan” to distance itself from the independence referendum of the northern alliance and offer a more moderate image, facing China and the local elections of November 24.

The PDP said, before the marches, that it does not oppose the holding of a referendum on the formal independence of the island, which requires constitutional reforms, but does not want to propose it, at this time.

“China harasses and pressures Taiwan to surrender, but if democracy is lived it will not prevail,” PDP parliamentarian Liu Shi-fang, one of its organizers, said before the demonstration.

Given the exclusionary options of formal independence, maintain the current situation and union with China, 36.2% of the islanders supported independence, 23.2% current de facto independence, and 26.1% union with China, in a survey conducted by the Taiwan Public Opinion Foundation in mid-September.

China boasts unity with Russia, India or Iran against the division of the G7

The leaders of China, Russia, India, Iran and other member countries or observers of the Organization for Cooperation of Shanghai (SCO) began meetings in Qingdao today aimed at giving an image of Eurasian unity, in front of the division that seems to affect the G7

Xi expressed the hope that the XVII summit of the SCO in Qingdao, the first to be held with India and Pakistan as full members, mark a second start for the organization “in which we embark on a new journey.”

“We have achieved fruitful results in security, economic and trade cooperation,” which is why the SCO, seen by some observers as an analogous version to NATO in Eurasia, “has become an important force in maintaining regional security and promoting common development, “said Xi.

Today, as a preamble to the plenary of leaders held on Sunday, was led by bilateral meetings in which Xi and Russian President Vladimir Putin, as responsible for the two governments that lead the organization, strengthened ties with the rest of Member States.

Among these meetings, Putin today held a meeting with Iranian President Hasan Rohaní, who is making his first trip abroad in China since the US announced its withdrawal from the multi-party nuclear pact with Tehran.

In contrast to the tensions between Iran and the United States, which threaten a new international isolation for the Islamic Republic, Rohaní thanked the Russian leader today for his support for his country to be admitted to the SCO as a full member.

Iran, Afghanistan, Belarus, and Mongolia are observer countries of the organization, including China, Russia, India, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, nations that account for almost half of the world’s population.

The SCO, founded in 2001 at the initiative of Moscow and Beijing, has managed over the last decades to coordinate regional cooperation on security issues such as the fight against terrorism, drug trafficking or cybercrime.

Russia, a country whose return to the G7 requested this Friday by US President Donald Trump, has tried since 2014, when his confrontation with Ukraine distanced him from the EU, increase its ties with China and other countries of the former Soviet orbit, and the SCO it has become for Moscow a transmitting belt of that effort.

Despite the image of unity that China and Russia want to give this week within the SCO, the entry into the organization of India and Pakistan, traditionally opposed by Kashmir, could cause unprecedented tensions within the organization.

It could also break internal harmony the current mismatch between India and China, border conflicts that last year even led to a temporary occupation of Chinese territory by Indian troops.

Or the mistrust of New Delhi to the strategic and economic expansion plans pursued by Beijing under the slogan of the “New Silk Routes”, a program of development of infrastructure and global telecommunications led by China in which India is very reluctant to enter.

Donald Trump said he is working with Xi Jinping to save the Chinese company ZTE

The telecommunications giant, which was affected by the prohibitions and fines of the US government, had indicated that the measures endangered their subsistence

the telecommunications giant ZTE, affected by a US sanction, “so that he can resume his activities quickly”, in a sample of coordination that lowers the tone of the trade war waged between the world powers.

“Too many jobs lost in China, the Commerce Department was ordered to do it!”, Tweeted the US president in relation to ZTE, whose activity was seriously disrupted by the prohibition adopted by the Trump administration in mid-April, of all exports of US components destined to the telecommunications group, for a term of seven years.

In March 2017, the United States also fined 1,200 million dollars to ZTE for violating its ban on exporting US products to Iran and North Korea, sanctioned for their military programs and human rights violations.

These measures, considered very “unfair” by the Chinese firm, endanger their livelihood and also harm its partners, including US companies, according to the company itself.


Earlier this week, and after holding bilateral meetings between senior officials, China and the United States agreed to establish a ” working mechanism to strengthen their communication ” on their trade disputes, although they acknowledged that ” there are still big differences ” between them and they have to “keep working” to stop them, according to the Xinhua news agency.

On Friday, the Pentagon announced that US military base personnel will no longer be able to purchase phones under the Chinese Huawei and ZTE brands because of the “unacceptable” security risks presented by these devices.

Life imprisonment for the most valuable piece of Chinese anti-corruption struggle

The fight against corruption in China today claimed its most renowned piece with the life sentence of Sun Zhengcai, considered until a year ago as a possible successor to President Xi Jinping.

Sun, 54, was sentenced by the Tianjin Intermediate People’s Court (northeast) for taking bribes valued at around 170 million yuan (27 million dollars, 22 million euros).

Until his fall from grace, in July of last year, Sun was the first Communist Party (CCP) secretary in the Chongqing region and had previously been Minister of Agriculture.

Due to his status as a regional leader of the Party in a key area since he was one of the youngest members of the Politburo of communist formation, Sun was unanimously considered by observers as one of the great favorites to access positions of relevance at the state level in the XIX Congress of the (CCP) last October.

The sentence handed down today also means that Sun will be deprived of his political rights for life, all his personal property has been confiscated and his illegal profits – and the profitability obtained with them – will be recovered by the State.

However, several foreign observers consider that the fall from grace of Sun has also had a political root, being a member of a rival clan of Xi Jinping.

“Corruption, in this case, is an excuse, the real reason is political, Sun was a protégé of (former prime minister) Wen Jiabao,” so “he is not a man of Xi and it was dangerous” for the president to be a member of a younger generation of leaders, Jean-Pierre Cabestan, director of the Department of Political Science at the Baptist University of Hong Kong, told Efe.

He added that Sun’s fall “confirms that Xi’s anti-corruption campaign also targets any potential political rival and weakens other CCP factions,” which is “a clear warning to other leaders who do not follow Xi’s line.”

Cabestan considered that the speculations that placed Sun as a future aspiring president were a little exaggerated, and placed him rather as a candidate for prime minister.

The sentence against Sun could have been more serious (there is the death penalty for these crimes) but the defendant “admitted his guilt, showed repentance and stated that he would sincerely accept the judgment of the courts,” according to the authorities at the beginning of the trial. started on April 12.

They added that “Sun’s political ambition and selfish desires were exacerbated,” prompting this former rising star of Chinese politics to “break the discipline of the Party and corrupt it.”

With the fall of Sun, Xi will be able to select one of his young trusted men, such as Chen Miner, elected at the last CCP congress as a possible president’s dolphin, said this veteran expert on Chinese politics.

The trial of Sun is part of the anti-corruption campaign initiated by Xi since his arrival in the presidency in 2013, which has resulted in punishment of more than one and a half million senior Communist Party officials, including some of the most powerful politicians and military of the past decade.

So far, the most notorious corrupt “tiger” to fall in this campaign had been the powerful former Public Security Minister Zhou Yongkang, sentenced to life in prison in 2015.

Sun’s case is not the first to occur in Chongqing, an area of great economic importance, where Bo Xilai, former Minister of Commerce of China and who succeeded Sun himself as general secretary of the party in the province, was also sentenced to life in prison for corruption.

Bo’s wife, meanwhile, was sent to prison for life accused of murdering a British businessman.

The sentence to Sun was disclosed in Chinese state media, but several of them deactivated in their Internet pages the system to see the comments that were written about the case by the readers.
