Q: Could China's Indian Ocean "strategy" end up causing trouble there as well?

China warns that the Indian Ocean could end up “as an ocean of conflict and trouble” if countries like India, the U.S. and China failed to engage with each other more constructively as their interests begin to overlap.

Does China have any right to dictate policy in the Indian Ocean?

Just read it, and no it doesn't.

This made me smile though

Quote.... Paragraph 1

China has, for the first time attempted to spell out its strategy and plans to secure its interest in the Indian Ocean in its first "blue book".

 

Quote..... Paragraph 4

The 350 page book's introduction says candidly that China has no Indian Ocean Strategy"

 

350 pages on an introduction, how big is this "blue book"

It may be confusing because they are lying out of both sides of their mouth. China has no right to dictate policy in the Indian Ocean, but as is often the case, they will constantly try to force themselves into many areas. This will cause problems as their myriad, extensive and completely illegitimate claims will not be granted nor tolerated.

 

From the article, under the 'China's impact' header:

"“China’s diplomatic strategy in the past has been based on the traditional concept of moderation, and striven to maintain the status quo,” it argues."

 

Saying it does not make it so.  I'm sure  that blue book would be an interesting read for scholars of diplomacy.

Sorry I have no opinion on this I've just bumped it to get rid of Silva's inane multi-drivel from the front page.

A:Hard to say, on the face of it Xi Jinping seems to be trying to do the right thing in clamping down on corruption. I think we will have to wait for a few years yet and see what if anything changes. This is a country that has had corruption at its centre for many generations, long enough that many people do not even recognise corruption when they see it, it is just how things get done. I think the government is aware of what the rest of the world think of China and would like to improve its standing, this is one way of doing it. It maybe a bit like how we see the "development" of China. Tall buildings, high speed trains etc but as far as health, education, pensions and welfare systems hardly any change at all. In other words the highly visible things get the go ahead but the more important things that underpin real civilisation are just shoved to the back of the line. This may be nothing more than trying to gain face. -- tomcatflyer
