China measures its solidarity

Our correspondent Andrey Krushinsky reports from Beijing

The level of contacts of Iraqi Foreign Minister Naji Sabri was rather traditional. The Iraqi guest was received by Chinese Foreign Minister Tang Jiaxuan; the chief of the International Department of the Communist Party of China, Dai Bingguo; and the chairman of the committee for international affairs of the Chinese Assembly of People’s Representatives, Zeng Jianhui.

It goes without saying that Chinese officials expressed their sympathy to the Iraqi guest. However, this sympathy was expressed carefully. According to the reports of the Chinese media, the officials expressed their concern about the situation with Iraq. They are in support of a political settlement of the issue, recommending that Iraq to execute all resolutions of the UN Security Council. This can be perceived as an indirect reproach to the potential victim of international robbery.

Before the visit of the Iraqi official, one of Beijing’s newspaper published an articled titled “ “Why the 'Axis of Evil' Has Become Sweet Cakes for Russia?” The article told the story of an allegedly prepared projection of the long-term economic cooperation between Russia and Iraq. If Russia really decides to sign this agreement with Baghdad in early September, then, this will mean that Russia's opposition to US policy of "down with Saddam" by military force will not be confined to words, but rather will be elevated into action.

China is also against any aggression. Yet, it prefers to be cautious.
