Chinese Foreign Minister Wang & Others Criticize Obama Policy At UN
September 29, 2014 • 9:04AM

China's Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, sharply criticized Obama administration actions—which could lead to nuclear war—in his speech Sept 27 to the UN General Assembly, according to the Sept 28 BRICS Post.

Wang said, "If a country places its domestic law above international law and interferes in other countries' internal affairs at will or even seeks regime change, the legitimacy of its actions cannot but be questioned by the international community."

Wang laid out a response to these flare-ups and wars from a higher foreign policy principle. "We should seek political solutions" in the face of various conflicts, and "corrective actions should have the authorization of the Security Council." He emphasized, "To beat swords into plougshares may take time and effort, but history and reality have repeatedly demonstrated that to meet violence with violence will not lead to enduring peace, and the use of force will create more problems than solutions." As one of its most important purposes, the New Silk Road beats swords into ploughshares, which stateswoman Helga Zepp-LaRouche includes within a new Global Security Architecture.

Wang stated that "parties to a conflict should reject the zero-sum approach, address each other's concerns, and endeavor to meet each other half-way." As for Syria, he stressed that "the Syrian crisis had continued for nearly four years. It is negotiations, not fighting, that offers solutions." With respect to Palestine, he said the issue is "a wound on human conscience." He called for Israel to lift its blockade on the Gaza Strip and stop building settlements.

Finally, Wang addressed the Ebola crisis in particular, which most leaders at the General Assembly callously ignored. He stated, "As a good brother and good partner of Africa sharing weal and woe with it, China will continue to stand firmly with the African people, and support and assist them to the best of its ability. We will also take an active part in the relevant international assistance efforts."

According to the Sept 25 People's Daily article, "China's Ebola Aid Displays Growing Responsibility," the Xi Jinping government has dispensed, this far, 231 million yuan ($38.8 million) to the West African countries which are the epicenter of the epidemic, and sent, as well, initially 115 medical experts, and now, additionally a team of 30 doctors and 29 laboratory technicians to Sierra Leone.

Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov Says Obama Responsible for Spread of Terrorism in Significant Part

Speaking at the UN Security Council meeting on "Threats to International Peace and Security Caused by Terrorists" Sept. 24—which President Nerobama chaired and had to listen to—Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov indicated in strong language that the policy of the Obama administration itself is the cause of a good deal of the terrorism. At the same session, Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner delivered a similar sharp message.

Lavrov stated, "ISIL, the ANF (Al-Nusrah Front), and other terrorist cells have long been growing in the Middle East. They have acquired additional opportunities for their criminal activity due to the weakening, including with foreign assistance, of state institutions and the support of various foreign sponsors. Having grown stronger, extremist groups are threatening the future of whole nations, as evidenced by the example of Iraq, Libya, Syria. The next targets are Lebanon, Yemen, Mali, and the Central African Republic."

The British controllers of Obama may have thought that having him chair the Security Council session on terrorism, would be a clever public relations boost for the latest Anglo-American war effort; it was not: Obama was sitting in the dock, in public view, where accurate charges could be directed squarely at him.

Lavrov added, "The intervention of Iraq, the bombing of Libya and foreign support for extremists in Syria have aggravated the issue of foreign militants fighting in the terrorist organizations in many countries of the Middle East, Africa, and the Afghan border regions." Lavrov proposed going beyond silly posturing, and called for "convening a representative UN-sponsored forum of all countries in the region, the African Union, the Arab League, the permanent UN Security Council members and other concerned parties." This conference would "look at the deep roots of regional problems." Earlier, Lavrov mentioned the "support from the drug business" that drives terrorism.

Obama got no respite, because Argentina's President Critina Fernandez de Kirchner, sitting only one chair over from Obama, using slightly different predicates, presented the same idea; she pointedly asked that those countries with 'sophisticated' intelligence services—i.e., the United States, among others— provide answers to questions such as who provides financing to the ISIS and who provides it with training and weapons; real questions that might start to get at the truth.
