data for: August 25, in a village in the province of Nuristan in Afghanistan, U.S. soldiers at war with the Taliban.
“International Herald Tribune” correspondent Tony Chen Jing from Beijing, “I am pleased to announce that the United States on terrorism issues will be held this fall, the dialogue.” Hillary Clinton, the current U.S. Secretary of State on September 10 welcome to attend China’s National People’s Congress Chairman Wu Bangguo of the dinner of the word, breaking the China-US cooperation against terrorism in the opinion of this topic for years of silence.
have a short honeymoon
as early as 2001 and 2002, there had been a U.S. anti-terrorism “honeymoon period.”
“China-US cooperation against terrorism began in earnest in September 11 terrorist attacks.” For this, the experts have no objection. September 11, 2001 in New York and Washington the U.S. terrorist attacks in the evening, Chinese President Jiang Zemin and Foreign Minister Tang Jiaxuan respectively sent telegraphs to President Bush and Secretary of State Colin Powell expressed sympathy. 2 weeks after the Sino-US anti-terrorism expert in Washington began a consultation on sat. Since April of that year the shadow of the South China Sea incident but wound up Sino-US relations suddenly became clear.
international relations at Renmin University of China Jin impression, “China-US cooperation against terrorism in the September 11 events a year and a half to reach its peak, the cooperation mechanism gradually phase made a number of results. “which, the exchange of information is the United States launched the first areas of cooperation. “9.11″ incident, the Chinese of China to the United States acquired the “base” organization and the Taliban intelligence. October 22, 2002, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the U.S. Embassy in Beijing set up a Beijing office.
According to the national counter-terrorism experts do Pan Guang introduction, United States established a bilateral counter-terrorism cooperation, each group is responsible for different areas, in addition to anti-money laundering group, as well as customs security team monitoring the implementation of port security.
a discussion of China to the U.S. action against terrorism “to make a positive contribution,” the article did the following sort: China in the UN to give political and diplomatic support the United States to send senior diplomats to Islamabad to help the U.S. cooperation with the United States to persuade Pakistan . Militarily, China and the U.S. war in Afghanistan is making efforts to close the border to prevent Taliban and Arab al Qaeda to enter China, to allow U.S. aircraft carrier in the Arab war to stay in Hong Kong on his way … …
Accordingly, the United States is also concerned about China’s “East Turkistan” terrorists fight to make certain efforts, the United States announced in August 2002 the “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” (the “East Turkistan Islamic Movement”) list of terrorist organizations. 2003 “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” the leader Hasan Mahsum in Pakistan US-Pakistan joint military operation was killed on the spot.
“More importantly, the two sides launched a counter-terrorism dialogue and cooperation mechanism.” China Institute of Contemporary International Relations, said Li Wei, director of terrorism research center. Beginning in 2002, are held each year between China and the U.S. anti-terrorism consultation.
low tide exposed the deep obstacles
However, people gradually found a few years later, the two sides of the negotiations on the little media attention.
experts also acknowledged, in fact, after the United States since 2003, becoming more and more low on anti-terrorism cooperation, the two sides except in accordance with the agreement reached two years ago, the implementation of specific work, regular co-operation, the few breakthrough.
appears in Li Wei, one important reason is that although Bush and the major powers in the form of counter-terrorism cooperation, but in essence, is unilateralist.
Jin analysis that “the war in Iraq before the U.S. attack targets al-Qaeda and the Taliban, this approach has been a number of countries, including China, the recognition, but the war in Iraq, the United States anti-terrorist center of gravity changes, will be targeted by Iraq, Iran and North Korea of ??these so-called ‘axis of evil’ which resulted in the United States in combating the object, focus on the differences. “
the United States in performed on anti-terrorism “double standard” is more prejudice to the deepening of Sino-US cooperation. End of October 2004, the United States decided to release Guantanamo detainees of China, “East Turkistan” elements, but refused to give the Chinese government, and looking for the receiving country.
dialogue will help this fall across the bottleneck
Obama era for Sino-US cooperation against terrorism has brought new opportunities.
Jin that “deep quagmire of Afghanistan,” Obama now proposes to strengthen cooperation against terrorism, the United States may have to pull China into the fight against terrorism in Afghanistan and hopes that China partially responsible for consideration.
the Chinese side to eliminate international terrorism with the threat of ethnic separatist forces and maritime trade security threat to shipping, also need the cooperation and support of the United States. Even the perception that China is likely to be in the “7.5″ after the incident and the more urgent for the United States in the fight against “East Turkistan” separatist forces of cooperation.
course, Obama is changing the Bush-era anti-terrorism policy, multilateralism seriously indeed before the Sino-US anti-terrorism cooperation beyond the bottleneck created certain conditions.
experts have predicted that this fall’s anti-terrorism dialogue will be different in the past.
“before more than a sector-specific anti-terrorism dialogue exchanges, but this fall the high-level Sino-US anti-terrorism dialogue, strategic dialogue between the government, from the overall situation of the specific work carried out before the whole system is discussed on future co-operation plays a specific role in guiding. “said Pan Guang. Jin predicted, in addition to cooperation in the field prior to the technical level deeper than the two sides could strengthen cooperation in the fight against piracy. Li Wei believes that both sides can take this platform to find more common interests.
“Although the United States for their best hope to solve the ‘East Turkistan’ issues and the issue of terrorism in Afghanistan, the two countries is difficult to fully meet the expectations of each other, but the prospects for cooperation between the two countries is still very optimistic.” Jin’s view by the U.S. Pew Research Center survey evidence, “How do people around the world survey of U.S. anti-terrorism cooperation,” shows that the ratio of support for co-operation from 2006 to 2009, 19% to 50%, as opposed to rate from 63% to 37% now.
