Seminar on ‘Organization of Islamic Cooperation-China Partnership for Peace and Development’
March 31, 2022 (EIRNS)—On March 31, Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche and Schiller Institute’s Southwest Asia Coordinator Hussein Askary joined career diplomat Farrukh Iqbal Khan from Pakistan, Professor Li Xiguang from China, and Dr. Smaine Djella from Algeria, for a seminar on the “OIC-China Partnership for Peace and Development,” hosted by Pakistan’s Asian Institute of Eco-Civilization Research and Development think tank.
Following Professor Li (who addressed an April 7, 2016 Schiller Institute event in Manhattan), Zepp-LaRouche spoke to the need to spread an understanding of the potential of the Belt and Road Initiative throughout Europe, where a better understanding of the potential of the world is sorely needed. She pointed to the 2011 killing of Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi, a military intervention that prompted LaRouche to forecast that the same future awaited Russia and China. There is no secret that the Anglo-American establishment seeks to crush Russia and China, to prevent their economic development and assertions of sovereignty. But there is only one conclusion to such attempts, if they are not defeated: nuclear war and the end of civilization.
But multipolarity itself is not the solution. Rather, an affirmative, unifying intention is required for the world. A prime historical reference is the Treaty of Westphalia, which based itself on looking to the future rather than the past, and on sovereign nations committing themselves to the benefit of the other—to common improvement. There can be no legitimate national interest that opposes the well-being of humanity as a whole.
Countries are increasingly waking up to the threat they face, and a guiding direction is required. Reason must prevail!
