Why is the amicable settlement of the problem of the South China Sea feasible? Why is Chinese image in the Southeast Asia different from what the Western media describes? It is because that some Western people intentionally or unintentionally covered an important factor of knowing Chinese image - the peaceful development strategy of China.
For a long period of time, Asian people lived under the influence of the Western countries. However, the situation has become very different today. Just as what Kishore Mahbubani from Singapore said, today is the best development opportunity for Asia in 200 years. China's peaceful development will obviously drive forward the whole Asian development.
There are still many contradictions and differences among Asian countries and some issues rooted in history also need to be solved. Since Asian people can rapidly develop economy, they can also peacefully solve these problems by themselves. In fact, the cooperation between China and members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations is also aimed at solving the problems by themselves.
