China’s CCTV-13 Interviews Helga Zepp-LaRouche and Jacques Cheminade
March 16 (EIRNS)—Interviews with Helga Zepp-LaRouche and Jacques Cheminade appeared on a Chinese-language newscast by CCTV-13 reporting on U.S. reactions to the just-concluded National People’s Congress. CCTV journalist Wang Guang reported on the reaction of U.S. think tanks to the ideas presented during the Two Sessions with regard to U.S.-China trade and the Belt and Road Initiative.
The broadcast then shifted to an interview with Helga Zepp-LaRouche at the Feb. 16 Schiller Institute conference in Morristown, New Jersey. Zepp-LaRouche said: “I personally think it is the most important strategic initiative, because it is a concept with which you can overcome geopolitics. Geopolitics has been the cause of two wars in the 20th Century, and the idea that you can not have blocs of countries or nations against nations, but that you have what Xi Jinping always calls the ‘community of the shared future of humanity,’ that you put the one humanity first, is a strategic concept which allows to overcome the divisions which existed in previous centuries.”
Her interview was followed by Cheminade at the same conference, who told Wang: “The Chinese way leads to a world integration through common development, what President Xi Jinping calls a ‘win-win’ system. So that’s a future. The Chinese want a world development. They don’t want to impose their model, but they don’t want the other models to impose upon them.”
A shorter clip with just the two interviews was aired by China’s English-language CCTV+ network, under the headline “Foreign Experts Applaud China’s Development Concepts.”
