Original title: sharp reference bar "Ba tie", Kampuchea should "change heart"? This time in the west is still too early!
The West's eye toward the Asia-Pacific region is a bit "complicated" these two days, according to the July 30 report by Reference News.com (Wen/Tang Lixin).
Since last weekend, the results of the general elections in Pakistan and Kampuchea, two of China's major partner countries, have come out of the election, the winning new face Imran Khan and the old friend Hong Sen.
But both new friends and old friends convey a clear signal to the outside world that China's relations with their country are stable.
It also means that some of the previous countries wanted to borrow an election or some "change" to dismiss China's friendship between Pakistan and Kampuchea.
The new leaders of the two countries share the same voice: they will strengthen their relations with China.
In July 28th, the most intense election in Pakistan's history was finally settled.
Imran Khan, a former cricket star, came into the global view - in the 270 seats of the 25 - day vote, the Pakistan Justice Movement Party, which he led, became the largest party in the national parliament with 115 seats, and ended the situation in Pakistan for many years in the Muslim Union (Sheriff) and the people's party. .
The big media have described the result with "changing the sky". Where will Imran Khan, a desperate change, lead the Palestinian nation? After a variety of days, "iron" is "iron"?
For a while, the outside world was full of misgivings about Sino Pakistani relations.
Is that true?
The Daily Times website of Pakistan published Imran Khan's remarks during an exclusive interview with Chinese media on 24. In his visit, Imran Khan made it clear that the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor is the engine of Pakistan's growth and will receive support from all walks of life in the Palestinian community. The construction will continue to advance.
Not only that, in 26 days after the initial lock in the winner of the national television speech, Imran Khan especially stressed that "we will strengthen the relationship with China, they invest in the China and Pakistan Economic Corridor, to create opportunities for us."
The New York Times, on the other hand, noted that Imran Khan mentioned "China" more than seven times in his speech, every time he praised China's achievements in eliminating poverty and anti-corruption, and said he wanted to learn from China.
There is no legendary "change of heaven", only the sincere confession between China and the Pakistani iron - all this has not only eliminated the natural strangeness brought to the outside world by the new prime minister Imran Khan, but also more directly broke the secret expectation that some countries had always held before the general election.
And at the same weekend, a similar scene happened in Kampuchea, another friendly country in China.
In July 29th, a general election was held in Kampuchea. The Kampuchea people's party, led by the current prime minister, Hong Sen, has won an overwhelming victory and is expected to win about 100 of the 125 congressional seats, according to the 30 day of the financial times Chinese network.
In a speech shortly before the election, Hun Sen praised Cambodia's relations with China, the Phnom Penh Post reported. In his speech, Hun Sen highly praised the comprehensive strategic partnership between China and Cambodia, and said that Cambodia benefited greatly from increasing trade with China.
Newsweek paid close attention to more details of the speech, reporting that Hun Sen highly valued the Chinese government's respect for Cambodia's sovereignty and independence.
Far away from China? Retrial China project? The "prophecy" of the western media is bankrupt
Two traditional friendly partners, two important elections, in the public opinion field of the western media, a key word that could not be revolved in any way pointed to "China".
Imran Khan, the winner of the Pakistan general election, had been educated at the University of Oxford in the UK. This background was also regarded as the basis for the "far and middle west" by the western media.
The Bloomberg News Agency reported early this month that although Imran Khan did not oppose China's financing projects and considered it a "great opportunity", if he was elected, he would not rule out the reexamination of the project loans.
On the day of the election, the India DailyO website was more unprovoked, saying that China's close attention to the Pakistan general election was because Imran Khan was critical of the outgoing government and China's economic cooperation. Once the Pakistan government changed its term, the China and the Pakistan Economic Corridor could be in danger.
But only a few hours later, these doubts were quickly dispelled as Imran Khan praised China in his victory speech.
A similar scene is also happening in Kampuchea: the current prime minister, Hong Sen, has just locked in the election, and Western camps, including the United States, have openly questioned the fairness of the election. The Reuters news agency quoted Western political analysts as wantonly attacking the freedom and justice of elections in a 28-day report, saying it contained the so-called Chinese factor.
But a report from the Singapore Straits Times refutes the fact that the report cites the people of Kampuchea to the West: "China did not interfere with us (in this election)."
At the same time, Cambodian netizens in the social media have spared no effort to refute Western suspicion of the election, to defend the election results and Sino-Cambodian friendship:
In fact, even the Fawkes news network had to admit that, although the Kampuchea opposition called on voters to boycott the vote, the 82.2% voting rate proved that the boycott was ineffective.
"The choice of the local people can not be changed in the west".
"Refuel in Pakistan, China!"
On the second day after winning the election, Imran Khan's justice movement party released the Chinese language on official twitter.
In his tweet, the new prime minister expressed his two vision: to learn from China to help the poor, and to learn from China to fight corruption. These two things are based on the same goal: strengthening and improving relations with China.
Subsequently, the Chinese Embassy in Pakistan forwarded the tweet in Urdu and wrote "Long Live China-Pakistan Friendship"!
At the same time, a Pakistan netizen also replied to the text in Chinese: "the friendship between China and Pakistan is higher than the mountain, much deeper than the ocean and sweeter than honey..."
From these interactions, it is not hard to see that "long live the friendship between China and Pakistan" is no empty talk.
All this, as the spokesman of the 30 day foreign ministry regular press conference, said: China welcomes the smooth and smooth completion of the general election in Pakistan, and congratulates Mr. Imran Khan on winning this election by the just Movement Party led by Mr. We are willing to join hands with the new government of Pakistan to push the all-weather strategic partnership between China and Pakistan to a new level.
Also at today's press conference, spokesman Geng Shuang answered three questions related to the Cambodian elections.
While on behalf of the Chinese government to congratulate the Cambodian general election, he has repeatedly reiterated that China is willing to work with the Cambodian party to implement the important consensus reached by the leaders of the two countries, to work together to create a strategic destiny of the community, and to push the Sino Cambodia relations to a new step.
"We also hope that the international community can work together to provide constructive help for Cambodia to maintain stability and achieve development." Said Geng.
"It is wishful thinking that some people in the West have tried to change the nature of other countries'regimes and their cooperation with China through the color revolution." After a comprehensive analysis of the two elections and results of Pakistan and Kampuchea, Xu Liping, a researcher at the Asia Pacific and Global Strategic Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told Xiao Rui that the results of any election were the choice of the people. They chose friendly leaders and governments to China, indicating that the friendship with China is in line with the expectations of these countries.
"Western countries can't change this." Xu Liping said.
