While Russia expresses "concern", China is seizing the Middle East

56
Beijing is playing an active game in the Middle East, turning there from a “strategic partner” of Russia into a dangerous rival. It is dangerous for the United States. The concept of “One belt, one path” serves for the Middle Kingdom as a bridge across the entire planet. The Middle East is important to China in that it is a “transit” route.




The “One Belt, One Road” initiative originates from the Xi Jinping policy statement made in the fall of 2013. At that time, the PRC Chairman spoke, however, about a smaller project - about the “Economic Belt of the Silk Road”.

The “economic belt of the Silk Road” was intended, according to the Chinese leader, to solve several main tasks: to strengthen regional economic integration, create a single “trans-Asian” transport infrastructure, eliminate investment and trade barriers, increase the role of national currencies in trade and deepen cooperation in the humanitarian sphere . The project implementation period is thirty years.

30 yo? For China, with his thinking for centuries to come, this is utter nonsense. In 2013, the Chinese leadership had no doubt that the project would cover approximately seven dozen states of the planet.

Later, the Chinese announced the second project - “Sea Silk Road of the 21st Century”. In essence, this was only a “water” addition to the land project.

And then the two paths formally united into one: “One belt, one path.” This global initiative is now considered a project to create a global transport and investment infrastructure. And above it will be China.

The first years of the successful development of this global project inspired the Chinese Communist Party so much that it decided to put Xi Jinping to leadership for almost a lifetime. This is not a joke: the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party proposed repeal one of the provisions of the constitution. Namely, the one that establishes that the chairman of the PRC can hold a leading position for no more than two terms in a row. It is possible that the Chinese comrades want the initiator of the path to be at the helm for another ten years, or even longer.

The most difficult in the Chinese global "belt" is the so-called central corridor. It is understandable: there is a tense political situation there, there are conflicting states, and the necessary infrastructure is not or not enough.

The Chinese government intends to link Eastern China (Shanghai and Lianyungang) with a “belt” with the states of Central Asia (Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan), and then with Iran and Turkey. Next, the route is drawn through the Balkan Peninsula to the French ports. To stretch such a “belt”, the Chinese will have to build an additional tunnel under the Bosphorus.

The Middle East belt of the Chinese "belt" covers the MENA countries (Middle East & North Africa, the same thing that in Russia is collectively called the Middle East and North Africa). It was this geographic region that unites the countries of the Middle East and the Maghreb countries that was set on fire in 2010-2011. "Arab spring". This includes Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Iran, Iraq, Qatar, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, UAE, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, Yemen and other states.

China’s fantastic project, which has long gone beyond what Xi Jinping announced in 2013, is striking in scope even in this particular area.

The Middle East "sleeve" of the Chinese initiative involves the construction of a number of industrial bases in the MENA countries, railway lines and the expansion of ports. If in 2010 the trade turnover of the People's Republic of China with the Arab states was 145 billion dollars, by 2014 it jumped to 250 billion dollars. Today, China has become the largest exporter of goods to the countries listed above. MENA countries are a source of raw materials for China: they now account for up to 40 percent of the oil supplied to the Chinese. As we see, the Chinese imitate the Europeans and actively diversify energy supplies. In addition, the Chinese, as part of their project, have conceived to build an expensive infrastructure for transporting liquefied natural gas (LNG). The price of infrastructure projects "One Belt" in the next fifteen years will amount to 26 trillion. dollars, notes analyst P. Escobar in Asia Times.

American observers believe that the Chinese "belt" already "really works" today. The One Belt, One Road Initiative is doomed to success, says Wade Shepard, author of Forbes magazine. True, “it is necessary to remember that the economic principles of“ One belt, one path ”will play their role not today, but through 10, 20 or 50 years,” the analyst said "InoSMI". That is, it is clear that China "is investing in the world of the future, where all roads will run through Beijing."

However, the Americans fear Chinese expansion today. The AidData study indicates: a financial giant has appeared in the world that has challenged the largest donor countries. 2000 to 2014 The PRC has provided funding to the world for 354,4 billion dollars. This is close to the volume that the United States allocated over the same period (394,6 billion dollars). And this is a very serious competitor: instead of choosing tops or roots, China takes away both, doing without confrontation. China emphasizes that it intends to "form partnerships through dialogue, where there is no place for confrontation, and where friendship exists instead of alliances." This is the message of Xi Jinping, the "main Chinese narrator", an American analyst is ironic. As a result, China is developing relations with Israel and Iran, with Azerbaijan and Armenia, with Russia and Ukraine, with North Korea and the United States. “In short,” the author sums up, ““ One belt, one path ”is built in such a way that it really works.”

As for the Middle East, Chinese appetites are growing rapidly.

According to the results of 2017, we note that natural gas imports to the PRC grew to 68,6 mln. Tons, or by 26,9%, and oil imports - to 419,57 mln. Tons, or by 10,2%. One of the largest local gas exporters to China is Qatar. Chinese are buying oil from Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Iran. Saudi Arabia was the main supplier of oil to China, and in 2016 — 2017. she rolled back to second place after Russia. As a result, it can be stated that China has a certain energy dependence on the region and at the same time either is already the most important economic and trading partner of local states, or will soon become one. Money for it in the Middle Kingdom do not regret. Beijing has invested billions and again billions in Iran, Iraq and the Arab monarchies, and in the future, the newspaper reminds "Sight"It intends to create here a free trade zone with the countries - members of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Persian Gulf.

And the Chinese will succeed. In fact, they are building their bright future. Rather, the present. A bright "future" is, as is known, the lot of Russia.

China knows how to get on where Russia expresses “concern”, and the US is completely furious, pointing at Iran and accusing it of “sponsoring terrorism”. China has an economy in front, and politics follows it like a cart after a horse. This is the Chinese national idea: more yuan and dollars, more goods and services, but less political talk. As a result, Western analysts acknowledge that the Chinese initiative “really works.”

For example, China is successfully developing relations with Israel. The Chinese are building container terminals in the Ashdod port, a metro station in Tel Aviv and digging a tunnel on Mount Carmel in Haifa. In the meantime, they spy on advanced Israeli technologies in medicine, alternative energy sources, and agriculture.

Israel has a local enemy - Iran. However, Beijing is friends with him. Beijing was friends with Tehran and in times of serious sanctions. Over 2017, the two countries' trade increased by 22% (30,5 billion dollars). It is curious that the Iranians in calculations with the Chinese pay not in dollars, but in yuan.

As a result, where it is difficult for Moscow and Washington, Beijing is successfully promoting its “belt.” Beijing manages to balance between Israel, Iran and Saudi Arabia, between Shiites and Sunnis, maneuvers between the “interests” of the United States and Russia in the Middle East and establishes strong ties where other seekers of gains are hindered by politics.

The economic “belt”, which is tightening around the planet tighter, helps China to grow rich. Political power, as it is known, derives precisely from economic wealth, and not from slogans about “exclusiveness”, “special mission” or “super-ethnos”.

And by the way, clothes in Russia now sell from Central Asia and excellent clothes, I liked their jeans.

        You compare produced by Vietnam and China - in quantity and value! And immediately there will be no questions. 15 years ago, a lot of goods were produced in the countries of Southeast Asia. Now they are produced even more than then, but produced in China has increased several times, and in these countries - only by tens of percent. Rare-earth metals (gadolinium, holmium, dysprosium, europium, ytterbium, lutetium, neodymium, praseodymium, promethium, samarium, terbium, thulium, cerium, erbium, scandium, yttrium and lanthanum) cannot be replaced with graphene - all the same, different applications. And China will not succeed in merging - the first economy in the world cannot be so easily merged. In reality, only the United States considers itself to be the first economy, for which it is only for themselves that they invent special methods of calculation, which generally do not apply to the calculation of the economies of other countries.
        Back in the 70s, I read the opinion of some of our specialist in China. He said that the Chinese consider the current (70s) disastrous state of the country a temporary phenomenon. "For more than five thousand years, China was the first economy in the world. In the 19th century it ceased to be the first economy due to the crisis. Another 50-100 years will pass - a moment by historical standards! - and China will again become the first economy in the world." The Chinese were sure of this back in the 70s !. And we see that this confidence is fully justified! hi

      China has become our competitor with the foolish ... volunteer Khrushchev, but I would not call him a dangerous competitor! Yes, and pee ..., you don't have to compete with him - you need to go your own way without paying attention to Chinese movements. The Chinese have enough of their problems, and only the USA sees their main competitor. But learning from the Chinese in some matters, it’s not a sin for us, especially in matters of the domestic economy, otherwise some people still rest on their laurels after Damansky's biased assessment of the modern realities of our relationship or vice versa "Everything has disappeared! The Far East has sailed to the Celestial Empire! They are driving us out from everywhere!", forgetting that we ourselves have everywhere supplanted ourselves since 1986, even before this destructive process began! So we still have a lot to do to be able to speak with the yellow dragon on equal terms!

        The main competitor for them is India ... the United States is far away, and China and Japan account for almost half of the American treasuries ... And India is nearby, developing no less intensively than China, especially since in case of conflict the Indians easily overlap the main maritime trade China's ways in the Indian Ocean. China has settled border disputes with almost all of its neighbors, but not with India. Tibet is an apple of contention. In fact, at the moment, countries are in a state of frozen conflict that could break out at any time. And it’s not the BV that the three nuclear powers will fight and little will seem to anyone. The Chinese are not afraid of war with the United States or Russia, India is their main enemy, this is who they really fear. Naturally, the US is trying to push the two powers against their foreheads, a typical policy divide and rule

      The mass of Chinese goods is determined by only one factor - cheap labor. The leader is not the one who produces, the leader is the one who creates. If the Japanese didn’t give a flare, we would see a Chinese car industry, without Apple (or Epola ...) and Samsung there would be no Chinese smartphones, Russia sells weapons to them ... The Chinese are well done, of course, but their economic miracle rests on the workforce , which is a lot and it is not expensive. The United States and Europe have not in vain transferred their production to China, production is cheaper there, and the quality ... people are picking!

So, the volume of bilateral trade at that time was 50 million dollars. It now exceeds 11 billion dollars. Of Israel’s partners in the world, China is the third largest, and also the largest of Israel’s partners in Asia. More than a third of investment in Israeli high-tech last year came from China. A free trade agreement is being prepared and all these figures will grow ...

    While Russia expresses "concern", China is seizing the Middle East

    Apparently, the author wants Russia to capture the Middle East. Only now tries to give us this crap? What is Russia lacking to capture it?
    China was completely late for the division of the “world pie” with its policy of self-isolation, did not capture the colonies at one time, and now has “woken up”. On the other hand, one and a half yards of the population will still run away in cockroaches, as there simply will not be enough space for themselves. Now while everything will be in their "vein", then they will begin to fight with them as with ordinary colonialists. If before, those who resisted with bows / spears ran, now with completely different possibilities. This will entail enormous human sacrifice, on both sides. So let them break off.
    We do not need to look at China, but strengthen and equip the state. Enough to follow the neighbor, if the "fences and gates are shattered" themselves. The business must be dealt with !!!

    He said earlier that state policy consists of two principles - domestic and foreign, if there is progress in foreign policy, then domestic policy, in particular the economy, cadres, and ideology have completely failed. I am not a fan of liberals of all stripes, but they, the West, have one look at their economy, at the standard of living of their citizens, and here they are right. The authorities have not created a social state that would be attractive not only to its PEOPLE, but also to citizens of other countries. Inequality, social inequality, criminal procedural inequality, etc. .. speak of only one low professional ability of the government, combined with corruption and theft, lack of discipline, responsibility for the task entrusted. Until there is the most advanced ECONOMY, and it can be created only when there is discipline, responsibility, professionalism, honesty, devotion to the FATHERLAND, the wisdom of the authorities, then there will be a different attitude towards us, we will never love us when, but we are afraid of our economic power will be. Only while we talkers are sitting in armchairs this will not happen.

    A good article and the conclusions are correct, in order to become powerful, it is necessary to develop the economy, and politics as a body will be tightened. See how China enters Syria. They waited for the right moment, estimated the approximate cost of restoration, at $ 180 billion, and now they began to actively invest in the construction of hospitals, transport infrastructure, communications, telecommunications and, with particular zeal, in the oil and gas industry, of which they had already been shareholders (the Hayan field) ) After the liberation of Homs, the province where it is located, restoration work began. Here they are able to quietly glanders, without entering into sharp confrontations, do their job, they always need to provide themselves with a front, but only with the front of work, hard workers in a word.

    The Russian Federation with China can only be friends and then not for long, then China will ruin the Russian Federation, well, if nothing is done. But in general, China can be fought in only two ways: 1. To cut off the Celestial way of obtaining energy resources by destabilizing the Middle East, India and Pakistan, India and China can be pitted against the Indians, although the latter will clearly defeat the Indians. 2. The way of introducing direct protective duties around the world so that it would not be profitable to buy goods made in China and using Chinese investments, but here it is necessary that this really be around the world, and therefore the idea is utopian. 3. The path of pulling the Chinese Ellites, but it is no less utopian than the second option.

        Really, the Chinese have flooded. Probably to replace Russian-speaking in black work? It would be nice...

    Lucky with the rulers of China, but how we flew! After Stalin, not a single worthy steward. How is it necessary to trample the people in order not to allow a worthy person to come into the light of day and stand at the helm of a great country. I am ashamed!

    Our guide can only mumble. So many promises from the top to the bottom, every day, year, reporting period. If only they would not be repeated. Tired of chatter. I understand that talking is not tossing bags! That's why we chat!

    China has the economy ahead, and politics follows it like a cart after a horse. This is the Chinese national idea: more yuan and dollars, more goods and services, but less political chatter.

    It’s a pity we have differently. And the next 6 years this will not change ((

    I do not understand your faith in the power of China, why is it so justified? China has reached the limit of development; further, economic growth will slow significantly for several reasons:
    1 This is the withdrawal of capital at an increasing rate, the main reason is
    2 The growth of the welfare of ordinary Chinese, i.e. a serious increase in their salaries.
    3 Strong growth in employee salaries leads to a significant decrease in the competitiveness of high value-added goods
    4 External corporations, primarily those involved in electronics, will be forced to scale back production and transfer it to other regions of the planet with more attractive conditions (rare earth metals can no longer be an insurmountable barrier, as technologies are constantly being improved).
    All this has already manifested itself a couple of years ago, so China has taken a course on domestic consumption, in order to prevent a major failure in the economy, which will surely frighten off investors. So the next in line is India, but the governments of the Western countries, having pinned on the increased power of China, will not step on such a rake anymore.

      Well, for some reason it also seems so. What is: "one belt, one way" - a banal expansion of the sales market, the search for new sales markets indicates the saturation of the sales market. If the market is saturated, then he expects the appearance of a qualitatively new product, or even a new type of product. A qualitatively new product is new technology, but China has not yet succeeded in this. A new type of product is an even more breakthrough product, capturing only the emerging rudiments of demand for something or something. I do not think that here China will also be ahead of the rest. Something tells us that environmentally friendly technologies, man himself (his upbringing, formation, training) and the search for an optimal and fair world order should become such a new product.

    Well, back in the early 2000s, Russian storytellers gathered “endless” forums where they dreamed about the whole world, and as early as 2015, they would make the Russian ruble a world currency. The Chinese in these forums (if invited) simply smiled politely and .... were silent. Silently made the yuan the world currency, quietly advancing their economic expansion around the world ... all silently, embodying their eternal policy of "small steps" - "step forward, step forward, step backward, step forward" - the main move and all the time forward . And Russia .... It’s sleeping, now slumbering, or waking up without understanding anything, then feverishly starts to do something, then throws everything back to hell and goes to thump, then it sleeps again and everything is new ...
