בשולי דיאלוג שנגרילה בסינגפור #SLD19 בהשתתפות הצמרת הבטחונית בעולם, פגשתי את שר ההגנה וחבר מועצת המדינה של סין, גנרל וויי פנגחה.
בהמשך לביקורי בבייג'ינג באפריל, שוחחנו על האתגרים המדיניים והבטחוניים בסביבה האסטרטגית הבינלאומית. 1/7
יום אחרי נאומו אתמול של שר ההגנה האמריקאי (בפועל) Shanahan שאיתגר את סין על התעלמותה מהכללים הבי״ל ועל פגיעתה בחופש השייט והטייס בים סין הדרומי נשמעה הבוקר התגובה הסינית בהופעה ראשונה של שר הגנה סיני בדיאלוג הביטחוני החשוב.
שר ההגנה הסיני בנאום מפורט ומעמיק היה נחרץ בנושא טיוואן כחלק בלתי נפרד מסין (השווה אותה לקונפדרציית מדינות הדרום שלינקולן החזיר בכוח לארה״ב) ועמד על כך שים סין הדרומי הוא טריטוריה בריבונות סינית ומי שמבקש מלחמת סחר יקבל מלחמה.
אבל חזר והדגיש האופי ההגנתי של האסטרטגיה הסינית.

On the sidelines of Shangri-la Dialogue #SLD19 19 I met China’s State councilor and MoD, General Wei Fenghe. Following my visit to Beijing in April, we now discussed the security and political challenges in the international strategic landscape.
The INSS was early to identify China’s significance to Israel’s national security, and in the same time to safeguard Israel’s special relations with its strategic and irreplaceable ally, the US, of any possible harm from Israel’s important economic and trade ties with China.
The INSS Israel-China research program leaped forth 4 years ago, with the generous support of the Glazer Foundation, and works wisely, quietly and effectively to promote a smart, prudent, responsible and balanced China policy in Israel....

Gen. Wei: Since the start of the PRC, China has not started a war or invaded another country. No matter how strong China becomes it will not follow the path of great powers and threaten other countries. China only has a policy or active defence. #SLD19

Following on PM @leehsienloong keynote last night who asked great powers not to force small states to choose sides, @ActingSecDef says US doesn’t want any country to choose any country. However, some countries are choosing to act contrary to actions that benefit us all. #SLD2019
@ActingSecDef - we can’t wish away reality as countries use friendly rhetoric to distract from unfriendly actions. US rejects the actions that run contrary to the order that many at #SLD19 benefit from.
@ActingSecDef China stood with US when we fought imperialism and fascism. China can stand with us today as well, no one has benefitted from the current order as much as China #SLD19
