China Makes “Demands” on US Over Taiwan

Senior  officials from the US Democratic and Republican parties have just been in Beijing, seemingly to take their instructions from the Chinese Communist Party.

December 2010 China-US meeting, Washington DC

From the Communist Party of China International Department website:

Senior officials of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Democratic and Republican parties of the United States held the third high-level dialogue on Tuesday in Beijing.

The dialogue was co-chaired by Wang Jiarui, head of the International Department of the CPC Central Committee, and former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Richard Williamson, representing the Democratic and the Republican parties, respectively.

The two sides conducted candid and in-depth exchanges on governance philosophy and China-U.S. relations as well as major international and regional issues of common concern,” according to a press release issued after the meeting.

The Chinese side reiterated China’s principles and position on the Taiwan issue and demanded the U.S. take practical measures to maintain the overall situation of bilateral ties as well as peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, said the release.

The high-level dialogue mechanism between the two countries’ political parties was started at the end of March 2010 and the second dialogue was held in Washington last December. 

And who in the US leadership is going to stand up to China over Taiwan or any other issue?

If China is not confronted soon, while the US is still more powerful, what will happen when the US can no longer afford to contain Chinese expansionist plans?

    Considering the fact tht half of the U.S delegation is composed of Pinkos, loyal servants of Uncle Joe, Mao, certfied camp followers of the ofious Fidel castro, it is not surprising that the Chinese in badly cut suits have the audacity to dictate the terms of surrender. Hitler did teach the Chinese one lesson: The West will buckle, their will to stand with conviction to any pressure is very limited.

      日方按經緯線劃分法將釣魚台劃入版圖,在國際法上無法律效力。如將中日兩方論據綜合起來分析,日方的「無主地先佔法」已不能成立,日本官方近年以來的聲明亦不再強調。被他們反覆強調的是「經緯線劃分法」,即堅稱釣魚台是日本領土不可分割的一部分,而事實上釣魚台是在一九五三年美國琉球民政府劃定的經緯線內,並且在其有效控制之下。

      對此,中方必須從歷史文獻、地理和地質構造以及國際法理的整體分析,方能有效推翻日方的「經緯線劃分法」,贏得國際輿論的支援。

      就目前的國際法標準來看,中國對釣魚台島嶼擁有兩項權利是無可剝奪的:

      (一)因發現、命名、使用而取得的「原始權利」 (Inchoate Title)。

      (二)根據「大陸架公約」第二條規定: 「海岸國有行使發掘大陸架與利用其天然資源之主權權利 (Sovereign Rights)」 而取得的「主權權利」。

      以上兩項權利已構成對日方所持「經緯線劃分法」的本質性否定。據此,向中國政府提出解決釣魚台問題的建議。

      第一步,收回原始權利 (Inchoate Title)。 釣魚台最早是由中國人發現、命名和使用的。據史籍記載,自從一四0三年至一九六九年這五百年間,中國人自由來往釣魚台,視為家常便飯,並且留下大量文字紀錄。近三十多年來,日本政府突然宣佈釣魚台為其治下領土,不許中國人自由往來釣魚台,剝奪了中國人五百年來自由來往釣魚台的權利,這不但違反國際法理,而且違背人類公理。

      因此,我們要求兩岸政府一致對日本,循外交途徑收回釣魚台的原始權利,恢復中國人五百年間往來釣魚台的自由,禁止日本海上自衛隊在釣魚台列嶼周圍十二海里範圍內的活動。這完全是合乎人類公理的正當要求。

      第二步,積極行使主權權利 (Sovereign Rights)。美國總統杜魯門於一九四五年九月二十八日發表的有關大陸架的一項聲明指出:「美國政府認為大陸架之底土及海床所有天然資源,由土地連接國家行使管轄權,是合理及公正的。」根據該項聲明精神,聯合國於一九五八年簽訂了《大陸架公約》(Continental Shelf),其中第二條規定:「海岸國有行使發掘大陸架、與利用其天然資源之主權權利。」

      釣魚台位於中國東海淺大陸架上,中國作為海岸國,毫無疑問擁有釣魚台天然資源的主權權利。中國政府應積極行使這項主權權利,發掘和利用釣魚台的天然資源,同時應根據《大陸架公約》的原則恢復對釣魚台行使管轄權,這完全合乎國際法理的。

    All according to the plan of the enemy agent at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
