U.S. Looks Agitated while China Does Not Need to Show Its Weapons

In an interview with a China Review News reporter, Deputy Director of the Chinese Culture Exchange and Promotion Association, Xin Qi, commented that “The U.S., by attacking everywhere, looks agitated. This is mostly related to the U.S.’s notion that ‘Western civilization is the center [of the world].’ China does not need to directly confront the U.S. Rather, China should let the U.S. understand and accept China’s new path of peaceful rise.”

“The U.S. met with a stiff rebuff in Iran and North Korea. The U.S. army will also withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan. The U.S. may think that China’s ‘bone is not quite hardened, yet it has become quite big’ after 30 years of the open and reform policy. American’s thinking is absolutely wrong. By repeatedly using the ‘no’ vote in the U.N. on the Syria issue, China has made it clear to the U.S. that such thinking is an illusion.”

“In the current situation, it is unnecessary for China to show its weapons to the U.S. There is no need to confront an angry, drunken man who smells of alcoholic. Rather, one should quiet him down and make it clear to him that he should recognize the interests that China and the U.S. have in common. … At the same time, China should make it clear to the U.S. that it is impossible for one model of civilization to dominate the world forever. In addition to the ‘Washington Consensus,’ there is also the ‘Beijing Consensus.’ The U.S. has to learn to accept China’s path and experience…”
