Russia-China Cold War Camp Takes Middle EastPosted: August 22, 2016
Russia media Sputnic says in its report “Washington’s Conundrum in Syria: Russia, Iran and China Team Up” today China has recently announced that it will provide additional training to Syrian Assad government’s force and increase its humanitarian support for Syrian people.
In addition, Russia is using Iranian airport to bomb Syrian anti-Assad force as well as ISIS terrorist force.
This blogger believes that the include of Iran and Syria in Russia-China anti-US Cold War camp has greatly expanded the camp as the camp has in fact taken the Middle East. It is especially so when the US is putting pressure on Israel and Saudi Arabia, its long-term allies that ensures its influence in the Middle East.
China with Russia as its de facto ally has taken the entire Asia except US allies Japan, South Korea and the Philippines. Why China has succeeded in doing so?
China makes friends through win-win cooperation and avoids creating enmity.
China even tries to improve its relations with Japan in spite of the misery Japan has caused to Chinese people when it invaded China and with the Philippines in spite of the arbitration it has filed to greatly harm China’s rights and interests.
