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.

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"

Why does a book about China's strategy need 350 pages to say it doesn't have one???

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.

A: Try me with that Q&advice: 'read the Contract!'Tits and others are
A:Try me with that Q&advice: 'read the Contract!'Tits and others are right: 'read the Contract and ask questions, before you sign it!'What else could I tell OP/you? Call your mom? Chinese will take an advantage of foreigner by pretending their English understanding is different than ours is. In their way 'they just negotiate'. There's nothing wrong with 'negotiating' in China. However, we (I do) understand that as 'cheating'.I seek Gov.'s help very often! Too often, since I am an English teacher without any Contract disrespect in 7 years of working in China. Why do I need Gov.'s help in Contract respect, if I perform without flops? There are only two parties on the Contract. By my assumption, if B honors Contract, A should do the same.Latest example at my full-time gig: 'I arrived to the office half an hour before scheduled classes, and rep. told me I am excused from work for 3 following days. 15' before my scheduled classes, I am told classes are canceled. Good, but I must receive full pay same as I would attend classes.Rep's reply: 'Chinese teachers at our School are paid per classes they perform, so you also won't get paid, because School canceled classes!' He didn't mention '... canceled classes on time', what I wouldn't necessary object, if I would get notice at least a week before.Now, management can do that to Chinese and other foreigners similar to OP and you, but not to me! I read and understand Contract, and get everything it belongs to me. School is now aware, that they are better off, if they schedule my classes elsewhere, because pay for not working by School's wish is warranted by Contract.I am required by present Contract to resign for any reason with 3-m RN. OK, but that also means I must receive School's notice about renewing the Contract in April or 3 months before the RP expiration, not 10 days before RP expiration as it's Schools custom in China. Try and find new RP sponsor in 10 days, me being Non-native English....Looking forward to that 'show' in April next year. School just demand 3-m RN, but they aren't aware of 'mirror effect' of that requirement.In my previous Contract, I sat in my room for 30 days, because School's excuse: 'managers are too busy to assemble your timetable'. OK, but I received full pay for the entire month of not working. At chat with SAFEA, I told Gov. that is School's Contract violation, and I can resign, because party A promised with Contract I will have 60 classes per month with what SAFEA agreed. I submitted Resignation notice in the middle of 2nd year's Contract and:- kept my RP intact;- received all necessary docs. from the School (with SAFEA's help) for RP transfer to the new employer;- got some 20k in late pay from the School.That all was just because I am aware of the Contract meaning, which I also respect 100%. How's my English? -- icnif77
