The Good Graces of China
By Micah Halpern

Thursday August 31, 2006

I'm Predicting:

The only way to neutralize the Iranian nuclear crisis is to go through the good graces of China. China, that's right, China.

Early yesterday Li Zhaoxing the Chinese foreign minister released a statement announcing a meeting between himself and Abbas Araghchi, the Iranian deputy foreign minister.
The subject under discussion was - no surprise, the nuclear crisis.
Now see if you find the official Chinese announcement summing up the meeting surprising.
"Both sides exchanged views on developments in the Iran nuclear issue and stressed that it should be appropriately resolved through diplomatic negotiations."

Once again, the Chinese are telling us that there will be no sanctions taken against Iran in the UN Security Council.
Once again, the Chinese are telling us that they will use their automatic veto if sanctions are suggested.
This time, are we listening?
