Washington creating avoidable dilemma

By LI YANG | China Daily | Updated: 2019-09-18 07:56
思维车 19地处大山深处的广西柳州市融安县大良镇古兰村古兰屯,因地处偏远、交通不便、基础设施落后,多年来村里的年轻人陆续外出务工,古老的村寨失去生机,渐渐破败,是有名的“空巢村”、贫困村。 武汉女人 2019-08-1909:418月16日晚,演员在重庆渝北艺术欢享夜市集上表演舞蹈。 母婴在线 2019-08-1909:348月18日,洪口乡莒洲村村民在霍童溪表演四人同时驾驭一根木头的“独木冲浪”绝技。 武汉女人 吴各庄 母婴在线 西拨子 论坛资讯 王道寨乡

In his speech for the National Day Rally on Sunday, Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong touched upon the implications of the US-China tensions for the city state. Lee urged the United States to recognize that stopping China's rise is neither possible nor wise, and encouraged China to put itself in other countries' shoes and take into account their interests and views.

That this is the second time Lee has raised the same topic in three months-in his opening speech at the 2019 Shangri-La Dialogue on May 31, Lee also highlighted the difficulty of having to choose sides in the confrontation between the US and China-shows the acute dilemma countries such as Singapore face.

Both Beijing and Washington should heed Lee's words, since he has voiced the concerns of many countries as the trade war between the two giants intensifies. But it is Washington that has more to learn from Lee's message, because not only has it always held the initiative to continue or stop the trade frictions, since it single-handedly started them, but it is also the major agenda setter in global affairs, as well as being the most devastating saboteur of the international rules-based system.

China is not the source of problems. It is the source of growth and stability. And, sitting atop the pyramid, the US, which is the largest beneficiary of China's rise and economic globalization, should know that China's development will only continue to stoke its prosperity. Even if China's economic size neared that of the US, China's per capita income, the most viable indicator of a country's national strength, would only reach about one-quarter that of the US. Not to mention that China has no desire to become another US-style superpower, which is not in its cultural genes.

Given their close and productive connections both in times of peace and in times of war, the leaderships of the two sides should demonstrate more wisdom and flexibility, as Lee suggested, and strengthen mutual trust between the two governments, armies and peoples.

Their differences foster complementarities from which cooperation and opportunity thrive, so differences need to be respected, and should not be the cause of discords and confrontation.
