China teasing act likely from Nepali soil
Nepal now has no famine of scholars who can thoroughly comprehend and explain the current global politics and its possible impact in South Asia, Nepal included.
We need not to invite foreign made intellectuals or for the matter political scientists from Jawaharlal Nehru University to make lectures on the current regional politics and beyond. Nepal now has abundant political observers who could explain far more better the existing politics of this part of the world and its far reaching implications in global politics and vice versa.
One such razor-sharp brain just the other day penned one write up which is more about China’s increasing friendly relations with the far flung countries and the nervousness that it has caused among many established powers to devise a strategy in order to encircle China so that the world's emerging economic dragon remains limited and mired in its own internal matters for all time to come.
However, China claims the learned Nepali scholar, Basudev Mishra, much to the mortification of its detractors in the world stage has already penetrated deep into the countries of Latin America and South America, Africa, and very freshly in South Asia through the effective use of the policy of “friendship with no strings attached”. China has already bagged significant success which is what has been ailing the declared hecklers of the present day Chinese regime prompting them all to initiate a regular Television campaign, “ The Chinese Are Coming” being telecast by the BBC, CNN, Al Jazeera and many more with the sole agenda of damaging the flourishing credentials of the current day Chinese leadership.
The grand Chinese presence in Venezuela, Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil and Chile is what has kept in poor health the present day Obama administration. To recall, until some years back, the United States took these countries as its backyard sole preserve. As per the Monroe doctrine, the US doesn’t want any other country to be present in these countries. This doctrine is still valid. The fresh visit of Chinese Vice President Si Jin Ping to Brazil and the various agreements that China signed with the Brazilian government must have shaken the US administration and its allies. To recall, Brazil is a member of the BRICS organization with its members as Brazil, Russia, India, China and now South Africa.
It appears that for some countries in the globe, China has already become a matter of threat and thus the set of these annoyed countries are now hell bent on killing the increasing nexus between Russian federation and China. Efforts are being made to weaken this RF-China relation, claims the Nepali academic.
Back in our own part of the world, that is Himalayan Asia, the author opines in his article published in Naya Patrika daily dated 24 June, 2011, that concealed hard works were being undertaken by some countries to knock off balance China’s under belly-Tibet with the kind assistance of the Indian regime in close collaboration with some far flung imperialist countries, which the author Mr. Mishra claims, remains no longer a secret.
The Nepali political observer of world standing, also indicates that bids were already in the cylinder to corner China and that India will be told by her new masters scattered around the globe to take the lead role. No wonder then the recent visit, recalls the author, of the Indian Prime Minister to Vietnam and Japan must have been the first step in this regard.
Vietnam not so in the distant past used to be a China friendly country.
The forced split of Sudan and the current assault on Libya too could have been a grand strategy, opines the author, to disturb the Chinese presence in these countries wherein China is supposed to have its significant outlay in the petro sector.
By and large, the author Basudev Mishra hints that China is being pressed from all possible quarters. How the Chinese take his views is not of our concern. However, what is of concern to us all is that China is a trusted neighbor of this country and that any support from a politically stable China in our developmental sector would be highly appreciated. However, China must take care that assistance must not to be the extent of interference in our internal matters. We have enough of that.
Chinese assistance in the development and the construction of rope-way sector, by the way if possible, will be taken in high esteem as such a substantial means of communication will certainly enhance Nepal’s alien controlled economy. The remote areas of Nepal where the economy either remains nil or at best is in a stagnant condition will greatly encourage the people in the high Himalayas to be a part of the Nepali economy by selling whatever they produce. The apples and other consumer items which they produce will get a grand market in Kathmandu and other cities. May be some products could be exported to China's Tibet as well.
Well, China understands better on how to twist the arms of those countries which have taken the oath of chasing Beijing, India included.
We are concerned for an enhanced Nepal-China relations with no strings attached.
The author also by implication means that Beijing could be teased right here from the Nepalese soil. The likelihood remains. And which force on earth can accomplish such naughty tasks is any body’s guess.
