China Speaks-Iran Listens
By Micah Halpern

Saturday February 24, 2007

I'm Predicting:

Xinhu, the official Chinese news agency, reported on Friday that Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing has placed a call to Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Motteki.

The report emphasized that China wants to resolve the nuclear issue "peacefully."

For over a year I have been hammering away on just this issue.
The solution to Iran is China. The solution to Iran is China. The solution...
And now I am glad to say that it appears as if China is moving on this issue.

Iran respects China. Iran needs China in the international community.
Iran needs to maintain good relations with China, their biggest energy customer.
China is the only real political power that can check the United States.
China does not ask how high when the US says jump.

China is beginning to let Iran know that they do not want a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.
China does not want the price of energy to spiral up.
When China makes a suggestion, Iran pays attention.
