U.S.-CHINA RELATIONS

a. "Creating a win-win-win situation for the United States, China
and India"

The official Communist Party international news publication Global
Times (Huanqiu Shibao)(11/23)(pg 14): "It is unnecessary for the
United States, China and India to have complicated trilateral
relations. All three countries should congratulate rather than
create obstacles for each other. During his visit, Obama stated
repeatedly that the United States will not contain China. China
hopes the new China-U.S. relationship can be developed in a way that
takes into account both countries' security concerns. India should
feel encouraged by stable China-U.S. relations, and China should be
understanding of the Indian Prime Minister's visit to the United
States, a visit that will further the basic interests of both
countries. A win-win-win situation for the United States, China and
India can be realized if China insists on peaceful and joint
development with other countries."

b. "U.S. strategy of 'hitching a ride' on China not realistic"

The official Communist Party international news publication Global
Times (Huanqiu Shibao)(11/23)(pg 15): "Since there has been no
improvement in its unemployment situation, the United States has
decided to try to 'hitch a ride' on China's economic recovery in
order to pull its economy out of recession and save on the costs of
recovery. This was one of the major goals of the United States'
recent policy towards China. The United States has taken advantage
of China's economic recovery and reduced its own costs by cutting
off China's core interests. However, the U.S. strategy in this
regard is not realistic. Even if China were willing to help the
United States recover, it is unable to do so since the U.S. economy
is four times the size of China's. Furthermore, the root cause of
the financial crisis is not the global economic imbalance,
especially not the China-U.S. trade imbalance, as argued by the
United States. The most urgent task for the United States is to
strengthen financial reforms, develop real economic organizations,
and implement a responsible foreign economic policy. Otherwise,
hitching a ride on China could harm the interests of all countries
and accelerate the fall of the United States."

c. "An indicator of China-U.S. bilateral strategic trust"

The China Radio International sponsored newspaper World News Journal
(Shijie Xinwenbao)(11/23)(pg 2): "Media commentator Jiang Yueyin
said that U.S. export controls on trade with China are an indicator
of bilateral economic ties. These export controls are part of some
groups' plans to contain China. To a certain extent, these controls
are forcing U.S. companies to give up their market share in China to
competitors. At its core, such thinking reflects a desire to
contain China. Once the United States relaxes and even abandons its
export controls, the bilateral trade imbalance can be improved."
