Should China continue to keep a low-profile attitude? (2)

(People's Daily Online)

16:17, December 13, 2012

In addition, China must face up to the reality that the world has deep prejudices toward China, a country led by the Communist Party. In this case, the arrogant and domineering attitude will bring greater difficulties to the rise of China.

Keeping a low profile is very wise and can stand the trial. An important reason for the smooth development of China in the past 30 years is the guideline of "keep a low profile and bide our time, while also getting something accomplished.”

Keeping a low profile does not mean doing nothing. Solving the domestic affairs of China well is beneficial to both Chinese people and the world.

Keeping a low profile and being modest and prudent also mean abandoning the attitudes and actions of a major power and treating all countries equally, which is a trump card in Chinese diplomacy.

In a word, the diplomatic guideline of "keep a low profile and bide our time, while also getting something accomplished" is a precious legacy left by Deng. The spirit of 18th CPC National Congress is to unswervingly go on the road of socialism with Chinese characteristics created by Deng.
