Sunday morning, April 12, 5:55, the U.S. aircraft arrived at Haikou Meilan Airport. 30 minutes early as 7 am, the U.S. aircraft took off carrying 24 American pilots to return home.
the second stage: the U.S. reconnaissance plane to return home treatment
, since the April 1 plane collision incident, the U.S. military’s EP (April 11th – June 7th) -3 reconnaissance aircraft has been parked in the airport of Hainan Island, China. Plane accident aircraft is the world’s most advanced electronic reconnaissance aircraft, the U.S. currently only has 10, respectively deployed in Spain, Guam and the United States, Florida. The aircraft is equipped with sophisticated electronic surveillance equipment, is only a land-based signals intelligence reconnaissance aircraft in the United States Navy, valued at more than 80 million U.S. dollars. Because it is expensive and may be in possession of important military intelligence, shortly after the U.S. EP-3 crew safe to return home on April 11, the United States anxiously want to return to the spy plane. China believes that the planes crashing into the I fighter and led to the pilot, Wang Wei sacrifice the culprit, China has determined not to spy plane flight departure, this attitude is to ask the U.S. aircraft shipped back to China after the demolition. China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman pointed out that allow the United States spy plane to fly China, will seriously damage China’s dignity, the Chinese people can not accept emotionally. In addition, the airport is a military airport in China, the U.S. spy plane landed there, which in itself has violated China’s airspace and territorial. If the United States to send someone to repair the aircraft, at least 15 professional and technical personnel to work in about three weeks. Which is equal to China, so China will never be allowed to open up their own military bases to the United States. While the United States adhere to the aircraft returned to the United States to end the whole event in China to express their views, the United States in two weeks and did not give a clear answer.
on the morning of May 2, U.S. Department of Defense successive convened two press conference, first claimed that Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on policy matters, special assistant to the Williams issued the memorandum, threatening decision “to suspend military cooperation, “but then quickly changed the caliber.
after bilateral consultations, May 24, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman announced that China accepted the U.S. proposal to allow the U.S. EP-3 disassembled and transported back to the United States. The same day, U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney said, packing the EP-3 reconnaissance plane is likely to be dismantled and then shipped back to the United States; the United States should not assume that the EP-3 was disassembled and transported back to China is a disgrace. May 25, the U.S. Embassy in Sino-US plane collision incident be properly resolved, the U.S. aircraft decomposition shipped back. Fabric news, denied the remarks of the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, does not recognize the Sino-US agreement on the EP-3 plane to return. This suggests that this time the two sides still have differences on some specific issues.
, June 7, 2009, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Sun Yuxi has finally announced that the two sides on disassembling the damaged U.S. EP-3 reconnaissance aircraft specific technical arrangements to reach an agreement. Pentagon officials said that the EP-3 surveillance by the United States plans to split into four parts of the fuselage, tail and two wings, and then rent a Russian Airlines An-124 long-range heavy transport aircraft (the aircraft wingspan of 73 meters The machine is about 70 m, the maximum capacity of 120 tons, the giant of all commercial aircraft in the world) completed be sent back to the EP-3 mission. June 13, the U.S. EP-3 removal and transfer operations. 8 o’clock on the evening of July 3 EP-3 by the two Russian transport aircraft shipped from China and arrived in Hawaii at 12:09 on July 4, the collision finally put a stop to. The third stage: the issue of compensation (June 7-August 11)
the U.S. crew and the aircraft returned to the United States after the plane collision incident to the Chinese to make the necessary compensation, became a Sino-US completely resolved the last issue of the event. It is also a problem, because it involves the question of the responsibility for the accident. The Chinese side demands the U.S. side to pay one million U.S. dollars compensation costs. Although the U.S. State Department spokesman also said the United States was prepared to pay to retrieve an emergency landing on Hainan Island EP-3 reconnaissance plane and shipped out of China’s “reasonable expenses”, but the United States House of Representatives on July 18 approved an amendment to prevent the Bush Government to pay $ 1 million, as costs associated with U.S. EP-3 reconnaissance aircraft to stay on Hainan Island airport. August 10, the related costs of the Sino-US plane collision incident, the United States make a decision to pay $ 34,567 to the Chinese side; costs will be transferred to China by the U.S. Embassy. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Zhang Qiyue on behalf of China in August 11, flatly rejected the U.S. side on collision incident the issue of compensation by the payment decision.
the issue of compensation is still an unsolved, unresolved. But man, the machine is a walk to ease the crisis between China and the United States (crisis). Overall, the plane collision incident has been a satisfactory solution, the same year the U.S. Congress passed the granting China permanent MFN status (PNTR) bill, President Bush’s scheduled visit to China. Sino-US relationship is not big twists and turns in the plane collision incident.
(a) in the case of diplomatic stalemate, to use their wisdom and efforts to find the common interests of both sides, on the basis of the proposed solution acceptable to both sides program
responsibility on collision, the two sides position a huge difference, the two sides argued for their own emotional and not make any compromise, which makes the problem difficult to solve. The continuing crisis will undoubtedly seriously damage Sino-US relations, both sides want to see. In the negotiations, China’s senior diplomat shows wisdom. For example, in the United States apologize for the wording of the original requirements of the Chinese side is “apology” with the English word of apo the logize “, the final mutually acceptable terms are” sorry “. “Sorry” with “sorry”. In the case of diplomatic stalemate, both sides must find a way out, proposed a solution acceptable to both sides, which is the diplomatic wisdom.
(b) to be good at the complex diplomatic issues with a simple truth and common sense make it clear that
of our one senior diplomat in secret contact with the U.S. Ambassador said: if the street out of a car accident, a truck crash, and the other one just rub a little skin, personnel safe. then Do not be to the families of the deceased to say ‘sorry’ you? “the U.S. ambassador listened to feel justified, that the U.S. is also easier to accept. This laid the foundation for later reached a compromise acceptable to both parties.
Yang Jiechi in an interview with the U.S. CNN interview, gave the Americans, for example: “If every day personal car to your door with a telescope to the inside of the ‘lookout’ every day. family car to go out, the man collided with your family, your family car crash, while the other is nothing serious, this time you will be what it feels like (Howdo you feel aboutit)? Is that person should not be to you and apologize to your family? “to the original emotional Americans slowly calmed down.
(c) On the diplomatic front, both to be flexible, but also the courage to persist in their correct position
the United States is a superpower, and when we are dealing with, adhere to the courage to uphold, adhere too well-founded. On the way to go about the U.S. military machine shipped, we adhere to, and not allowed to fly away, but moved away. Without our permission because the U.S. plane landed at my airport has been a serious violation of our sovereignty, then fly away on their own will further damage the sovereignty and dignity. As we previously developed a human-machine separation guidelines, a back, the crisis has eased (The crisis has beendefused), the emotional aspects of the American public also had a lot of ease, so the United States last made concessions on this issue.
