Commentary: "China risks" claim groundless

BEIJING, Jan. 17 (Xinhua) -- A small number of Western media have played up a claim that major risks from China in the future will stem from regional security matters rather than economic issues.

That is nothing but a groundless statement.

Among those making the claim is the Eurasia Group, a leading global political risk research and consulting firm. The firm has listed China as being among the top 10 risks for 2012.

The "China risks" claim is simply groundless and untenable. That's because a peaceful and prosperous China will not pose any threat to world peace and stability. Rather, it can bring about more development opportunities.

During the past year, despite facing stiff headwinds from a sluggish world economy and a festering eurozone debt crisis, China has continued to push forward economic and trade cooperation with its neighbors, adding a bright spot to the bleak growth picture.

The robust regional cooperation between China and its neighbors serves as an outstanding example of regional economic integration and also functions as a buffer against global economic risks.

On top of that, China has remained committed to the path of peaceful development and a win-win strategy of opening up while pursuing its own development.

A good-neighbor policy has always dominated China's efforts in its handling of relations with neighboring countries in order to build a harmonious Asia and a harmonious world at large.

The hegemonic, terrorist, imperialist policies of the Western Christian thugs are now completely out in the open. At the moment all the Western Christian terrorist thugs are in all sorts of problems, but once they come out of these problems, they will restart terrorising and dominating the whole world even more shamelessly. This is the time for Chinese world and the Muslim world to carry out all the necessary domestic, political, and economic reforms, and build a coherent global Sino-Muslim community, so that we can live in a free and democratic world.

In this century, there remains some western media which cannot see the rise of an Asian nation. More so if the Asian nation out performs the western countries in various fields. Then they will publish unjustifiable articles to tarnish the image of the Asian nation; aiming to create fear among its neighbors. For far too long, such had been the tricks of the western countries to bully the weak and poor Asian countries. Unfortunately, some Asian countries also fall into this trap and be their puppets. It"s time now for all Asian countries to unite and take the bold step forward and catch the bull by its horns. Give these western countries and media a stern warning and a taste of their own medicine. Enough is enough.
