Xinhua Commentary Warns Anti-China Attacks Are 'Major Strategic Error'
May 10, 2020 (EIRNS)--A Xinhua commentary yesterday, headlined "China Boosts National Pride In Coronavirus Fight, But Not To Export 'Chinese model' " begins by noting: "It is a national consensus that China has put the domestic epidemic under control and the rising trend of imported COVID-19 cases has waned, while the order of work and life has resumed at a faster pace. For a country with 1.4 billion people, these are hard-won achievements worth of national pride."
According to the results of a national survey conducted by the Singapore-based research agency Blackbox Research, the Chinese people have expressed that they are very satisfied with their government's response to the COVID-19 crisis, and will continue to be responsive to any public health crisis in the future.
The commentary goes on to say,
"Such courage to identify and fix governance shortcomings stands in sharp contrast to tactics adopted by some countries' politicians who attempt to cover up their incompetence and shift blames to others. As China's situation improves, these politicians are now fanning hatred on China and preaching dealing with China as a principal challenge. The attacks launched by Western politicians against China's political system, with the CPC [Communist Party of China] the ultimate target of their barrage, proves groundless and futile. It is a major strategic error and an out-of-date mindset to do so.
"China has no intention to change the current world order, nor is the country looking to impose its model on others around the globe. Rather, China upholds the vision of a community with a shared future for mankind and will continue to be committed to world peace, global development and international order."
