China never seeks hegemony: white paper


12:25, September 06, 2011

BEIJING - China never engages in aggression or expansion, and never seeks hegemony, says the white paper on China's development issued Tuesday by the Information Office of the State Council.

The Chinese nation loves peace. From their bitter sufferings from war and poverty in modern times, the Chinese people have learned the value of peace and the pressing need of development, says the white paper.

They see that only peace can allow them to live and work in prosperity and contentment and that only development can bring them decent living, it says.

"Therefore, the central goal of China's diplomacy is to create a peaceful and stable international environment for its development," it says.

In the meantime, China strives to make its due contribution to world peace and development. It never engages in aggression or expansion, never seeks hegemony, and remains a staunch force for upholding regional and world peace and stability, according to the white paper.

The white paper introduced the path, objective and foreign policy of the peaceful development and elaborated on what China's peaceful development means to the rest of the world.

Stressing China will unswervingly follow the path of peaceful development, the white paper says this is "a path of scientific, independent, open, peaceful, cooperative and common development."

"Viewed in the broader, global and historical context, the path of peaceful development may be defined as follows: China should develop itself through upholding world peace and contribute to world peace through its own development," says the white paper.

The country should achieve development with its own efforts and by carrying out reform and innovation. At the same time, it should open itself to the outside and learn from other countries, it says.

China should seek mutual benefit and common development with other countries in keeping with the trend of economic globalization, and it should work together with other countries to build a harmonious world of durable peace and common prosperity, it says.

The white paper reiterated that peaceful development is a strategic choice made by China to realize modernization, make itself strong and prosperous, and make more contribution to the progress of human civilization.

China will unswervingly follow the path of peaceful development, it says.

All very noble goals and in a dream world this would be what many countries and people want and need. However, the reality is much different as the Libyan crisis has shown us. China instead of vetoing resolution 1973 and 1970 turned a blind eye knowing full well that the imperialists of NATO would use those resolutions to install a puppet government in Tripoi and rob the Libyan people of their natural resouces. Is this action "peaceful development", no not hardly. I do not believe for one moment that the great Communist Party of China believes that it can reconcile and ignore the imperialist aggressions of NATO lead by the warmongering United States. This peace at any cost proclamation is surely viewed by NATO as weakness and they will continue and accelerate there push forward surrounding both China and Russia with military threats and then strike to rid the world of Socialism and achieve world hegemony. To continue to appease the warmongers will not bring peace but only war and destruction on us all. China is a great nation forged out of adversity and struggles of the people to win a better world through Socialism. So China must not put her head in the sand and pretend the snake cannot bite it.
