Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, May 19: how would you feel if there was a person opposite who smiled one second and was furious the next?
In the Sino-US economic and trade negotiations, China is facing such a rival who can turn his face faster than a book.
It is clearly remembered that not long ago, the US side frequently signaled that the two sides were about to reach a final agreement, saying on April 29 that "the terms of the agreement only need to be fine-tuned and the negotiations may be concluded next weekend." Just a week later, it was blatantly announced that it would raise tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports to 25 per cent. Such a domineering style on the part of the US authorities has attracted criticism from all sides at home and dismayed the international community.
During the negotiations and consultations for a whole year, China has always responded to the concerns of the US side with the greatest sincerity and goodwill and tried its best to promote the negotiation process. The Chinese side keeps its word and does what it says. However, what does the United States give back? Instead of returning favours, the US side often turns over its face, and its various words and deeds make the world wonder: is this the "civilized" country that regards "its morality, its self-esteem" as the cornerstone of "glory and dream"? There is no doubt that something is going downhill anyway!
Over the past year, people have clearly seen that in the course of negotiations, the US side has released a large number of contradictory and "face-to-face" messages through unconventional means such as social media, and all kinds of remarks have changed dramatically. Calling it "emotionally volatile" and "elusive" is not only out of proportion to its status as a superpower, but also baffled and helpless global markets with a preference for predictability, which has been seen as "the biggest destabilizing factor in the world".
A man without faith will not stand, and a country without faith will decline. Since its establishment, the United States Government has been rapidly overdrawing its national credibility in its way of easily turning face to face, retreating from groups, and breaking contracts in international affairs. Even if you make a short-term fluke through "blackmail", you will have to pay the bill in other ways one day.
Robinson, a columnist for the Washington Post, points to the essence of the frequent US turntable: this is the "standard practice" for some people to negotiate-a sudden provocation at the last moment when the other side thinks the matter has been settled. Trying to force a more favorable deal.
This out-of-the-table trick may be the proud "success code" of some, but it clearly does not apply to international relations in the 21st century. In order to oppress China to compromise and make concessions on issues involving the core interests of the country, it is even more like a pipe dream!
