10 23, the Fifth China-Japan Friendship 21st Century Committee for the third time meeting in Beijing. This is the opening ceremony, participants agreed to a group photo. Xinhua News Agency reporters Xie Huan and Chi She
in the 21st Century Committee for China-Japan Friendship five three meetings, the senior member of China Tang Jiaxuan made the construction of future-oriented Sino-Japanese relations, we should focus on promoting mutual political trust and communication national feelings of the two systems engineering. To this end, I side with the Japanese members, former Japanese Ambassador to China Anami discussions mentioned some trouble between China and Japan, Deng said, can be left to future generations to resolve.
Anand replied, we are his descendants!
Yes, as a pioneer in Sino-Japanese friendly relations between the descendants of the older generation, we should have more wisdom. As Anand said, China and Japan, then it is beyond the values ??of the differences, was able to achieve a friendly. Precisely because of differences in values, have the necessary common ground, friendship and harmony, so the 1980s, Sino-Japanese friendly relations built. Thereafter, the development of commodity economy in China, on the surface, similar to the values, but trouble increased.
problems are complex, but China’s rapid development, does give rise to some anxiety surrounding the “China threat theory” emerged, which may impede the current political trust between China and Japan, security the crux of mutual trust.
but 1.3 billion people of China, they want to develop. In economic development, of course, there will be the development of necessary national defense strength, but also wants to include a little India, Thailand has a carrier.
key is in how the two sides treat each other. If you can not be objective and constructive look at each other’s changes, it would not be political mutual trust, security and mutual trust.
I think, the first is developed countries, or countries is growing rapidly, both in Japan, including China, should pay attention to two points: First, not to their own values, their model on , for example, China is now the road of choice since the success of its vision, it may wish to wait and see; the second is used to welcome and encourage the emerging national development and progress. Insight, especially the two countries, two government officials, have a responsibility to these two points to guide the national consciousness, national feelings.
at least it is not necessary that “China is a threat to Japan.”
Last year, China-Japan Friendship Commission Meet Former Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan, the former prime minister said he hoped China draw lessons from Japan in the period of rapid growth do not choose the wrong path. This advice made me feel shocked. I have been thinking, honesty, China really peaceful development road?
is of course true. This is not only unique because of the continuity of Chinese civilization, tolerance, openness, but also because the Chinese people suffering from war and poverty in modern times after the painful experience, deeply precious peace, development of the urgent, convinced that only people living in peace can be achieved , can be achieved only by developing the people’s clothing. In particular, from a practical point of view, China’s modernization is the modernization of the world’s fifth of the population, this is a very long historical process. This process, the difficulties and problems, regardless of size or degree of difficulty, are rare. In a long historical period, China will remain a developing country, which determines that China must focus on modernization, to focus on development and people’s livelihood; always need a peaceful and stable international environment, engage in foreign exchange and cooperation. Even stronger China in the future, peace remains a prerequisite for development, there is no reason to deviate from the path of peaceful development. The determinants of China’s peaceful development and endogenous dynamics, based on their basic national conditions and cultural traditions, based on their own fundamental interests and long-term national interests, not to convince, to please whom, who deceive.
China should strive to develop. But the development of China, certainly not a threat to Japan. I believe we and our descendants will be more intelligent, more rational, with China and Japan, both through the maintenance of peace in Asia and the world to develop their own, but also through our own development in Asia and world peace.
