Restraint agreed by Chinese and Philippine defence heads


Liang Guanglie and Voltaire Gazmin

According to China’s official Xinhua news agency and SCMP, there was a meeting between Chinese Defence Minister General Liang Guanglie and his Philippine counterpart Voltaire Gazmin on May 28 in the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh. They both agreed to restrain their rhetoric and deeds to avoid intensifying the tension, and to continue communication until a peaceful resolution can be reached.

According to Xinhua, Liang said Chin and the Philippines were close neighbours. China attached great importance to the development of the relations between the two countries and their militaries.

Leung pointed out that Huangyan Island (Scarborough Shoal) was Chinese inherent territory allowing no dispute. The recent Huangyan Island incident was entirely caused by the armed disturbance of Chinese fishermen by a Philippine warship. What the Philippines had done since the incident occurred complicated the situation. China asked the Philippines to earnestly respect China’s sovereignty and refrain from taking any action that might further complicate and intensify the situation. He hoped that the Philippine defence department and military put the interests of the whole above everything else, stay calm and restrained, and be cautious in their words and deeds so as to maintain regional peace and stability.

Gazmin thanked Liang for meeting him and exchanged views with him on the sensitive issue. He expressed the hope that the two countries’ defence departments shall continue communications while their diplomats were dealing with the sensitive issue so as to facilitate a peaceful and rational solution of the issue.

SCMP said in addition that “The deputy chief of general staff of the People’s Liberation Army, General Ma Xiaotian, told Phoenix TV on Monday that the PLA was able to protect China’s maritime territories but ‘at the moment China is not preparing to resort to military means – that would be the very last option’.”

About chankaiyee2

There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
