On the sidelines of the Munich Conference, a meeting was held between US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Yi. Bloomberg writes that as a result of the meeting, relations between Beijing and Washington worsened, the parties “exchanged barbs about the balloon, Taiwan, North Korea and Russia.” China has not yet joined in support of Russia as part of a special operation, however, it has not voiced condemnation either, but support has been expressed in the investigation of the explosions at Nord Stream. And here India, whether the Third World War can begin or whether “eternal peace” will come – in our today’s material.
On January 28, 2023, a balloon of unknown origin appeared in the sky over the United States. Chinese authorities announced that a civilian weather balloon had entered US airspace, but on February 4, US authorities ordered the device to be shot down, which was done by launching a rocket from an F-22 Raptor fighter.
Prior to this incident, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken had planned to go to China on an official visit, but the meeting was postponed. The Chinese Foreign Ministry responded: “China is expressing strong dissatisfaction and protest over the use of force by the United States to attack a civilian unmanned balloon. China has clearly asked the US to resolve this calmly, professionally and with restraint.”
Later, China also rejected a Pentagon request for a closed-line conversation between US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Chinese National Defense Secretary Wei Fenghe. The meeting between Wang Yi and Anthony Blinken nevertheless took place, but as a result, relations between China and the United States deteriorated, Bloomberg wrote. In particular, Wang Yi said that Beijing will continue to oppose “Taiwan independence”, which is important for maintaining stability in the Taiwan Strait. In general, the politician continues to voice the line of the Chinese Communist Party that Taiwan should be subordinate to Beijing on the principle of “one China”, and also argued that Taiwan has never been and never will be an independent state.
The Chinese representative did not apologize for the incident with the balloon , noted Anthony Blinken. Washington did not hear an apology even after it was said in the direction of Beijing about the violation of international law.
China’s entry into international markets
At the same Munich Security Conference, Wang Yi said that China had successfully overcome the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic and was ready to restore contacts with Europe. The website of the Asian country’s Foreign Ministry said that the parties can begin preparations for a new meeting of the leaders of China and the European Union, using the mechanisms of “high-level dialogue” in various fields in order to facilitate the return of trade to pre-pandemic levels as soon as possible.
Wang Yi, during a meeting in Munich with European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell, said that China and the EU are partners, not rivals. The Chinese politician also clarified that the parties “should adhere to open cooperation, respect each other’s fundamental interests, and together protect the stability of global production and supply chains.”
In particular, Wang Yi during his visit to Budapest stated that Hungary and China should support the formation of a multipolar world. “In this world full of dangers and worries, China and Hungary need to continue multilateral cooperation, support multipolarity … and the central assistance of the UN to ensure that there is more cooperation and understanding in the world and less misunderstanding,” said the representative of the Chinese Foreign Ministry on negotiations with Hungarian Prime Minister Peter Szijjártó. Wang Yi noted that Hungarian President Viktor Orban was given an invitation to visit the One Belt, One Road Forum in Beijing, where a project for the construction of a railway between Budapest and Belgrade is expected to be presented as part of the development of Hungarian-Chinese relations.
Beijing also continues to maintain relations with Russia. Wang Yi argued : “The Russian-Chinese relationship of comprehensive partnership and strategic cooperation is based on non-alignment, non-confrontation and non-anti-third party.” Thus, he confirmed that China will not accept US threats against relations between Beijing and Moscow. As CNN reported, China is playing a double game, publicly calling itself a supporter of peace, but at the same time coming closer to the decision to provide lethal military support to Russia.
Against the same background, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that drawing China into the conflict on the side of Russia could mean the imminent start of World War III. It is not known whose specific thoughts the Ukrainian leader voiced, but the hand of Big Brother is still visible on the shoulder of the Ukrainian leader.
Plan for the settlement of the conflict in Ukraine from China
Wang Yi also announced the announcement of a plan to resolve the conflict in Ukraine by China. The new proposal will repeat the points of the previous plan put forward by Chinese leader Xi Jinping, and, most likely, this speech will include the observance of the principles of the UN Charter. “We oppose attacks on nuclear power plants, attacks on civilian nuclear facilities. We call for efforts to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and nuclear disasters,” the politician said.
The settlement plan will be announced by Chinese President Xi Jinping on the anniversary of the start of the special operation, February 24, according to the media. The peace plan will also take into account the interests of all interested countries, including Ukraine itself. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said during the Munich Conference: “China can play a role in deterring Russia’s aggressive intentions due to Beijing’s special relationship with Moscow. China should take into account the fundamental principle of Ukraine, which is close to the PRC – territorial integrity.
China’s Global Times reported, “Wang Yi begins his visit to Russia. China does not want an escalation and prolongation of the Ukrainian crisis. Shortly after the outbreak of the conflict, the Chinese side put forward four proposals: the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries should be respected, the purposes and principles of the UN Charter should be respected, the legitimate security considerations of all countries should be taken seriously, and all efforts should be supported to promote a peaceful resolution of the crisis. China has repeatedly stressed that there are no winners in conflicts and wars, no easy solutions to complex problems, and that great power confrontations must be avoided. Historical experience shows that the lack of contacts and dialogue does not help in solving regional and even global problems, but, on the contrary, often makes the situation more complicated.”
It is difficult to say what exactly Beijing will offer. Summing up, I would like to advise everyone watching the development of events to wait for the message of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the Federal Assembly, and also to listen to the very plan that Xi Jinping will announce on the anniversary of the start of the NWO.
So what about India?
India borders on China, respectively, it is a direct competitor to Beijing in the development of European markets. Next in order.
In two months, India will become the most populous country in the world, Reuters reported earlier. According to UN projections, India’s population could reach 1,425,775,850 as early as April 14, the day China will be left behind. For at least a year, maybe longer, India won’t know how many people it has because it can’t count them.
In December 2022, it was reported that Apple was going to move part of its production from China to India due to Beijing’s coronavirus policy. The lack of highly qualified specialists is likely to slow down the implementation of plans, and territorial disputes between India and China may also slow down the process. Recall that there is a long-standing territorial dispute between China and India over the ownership of a piece of mountainous terrain in the north of Indian Kashmir, as well as almost 60,000 square kilometers in the northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh. The Line of Actual Control runs in the Ladakh region, where a small conflict broke out in 2020, resulting in the death of several dozen people (according to various sources).
The Ministry of Finance of India and the Reserve Bank of India are discussing the candidacies of three local small banks UCO Bank, Bank of Maharashtra and Punjab & Sind Bank to establish payment settlements between Moscow and New Delhi. It is assumed that they will be VTB and Sberbank. Both banks have branches in India and can arrange foreign trade settlements in the national currencies of the two countries, which will help to avoid the imposed sanctions. Thus, India is trying to take the place of China on the world market before it joins the global game. Supply chains have shifted south to ASEAN and the Persian Gulf, Russia and China have to adjust in this game. This is where Wang Yi’s statements about improving relations with Europe and about Beijing’s readiness to go into confrontation with Washington appeared. In accordance with this, three sides of contradictions emerge: China – India,
How the US can oust China at the hands of India
On February 14, information appeared that the Indian airline Air India signed two major contracts for the purchase of Boeing and Airbus aircraft. In total, 220 aircraft will be purchased for a total of $ 34 billion – among the models are 737 MAX, 777X and 787 Dreamliner. The Indians will buy a total of 250 aircraft from Airbus, mainly the A-350 and A-320 NEO. With the help of the purchased aircraft, in particular, goods will be delivered to markets, read, to Europe.
China is supposed to be ousted by the hands of ethnic Hindus in power structures. For example, 2024 US presidential candidate Nikki Haley was born in Bamberg, South Carolina to Sikh parents, and her parents immigrated from the Indian district of Amritsar, Punjab. British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is also a native of this region, with the election of which London’s influence on the processes taking place in Kiev has noticeably weakened, in particular, after the resignation of Boris Johnson. Kamala Harris is also a native of India, but from another state (Tamiland). Her younger sister, Maya Harris, was on Hillary Clinton’s campaign team during her presidential campaign. Kamala Harris is still Vice President of the United States. The impact of all the above individuals and events on India-China relations is yet to be seen, but Beijing should prepare now. Russia, too, should not relax; in this big geopolitical game, it risks suffering again.
