‘But allow me as an expert of International Law, to now tell him/her that there is nothing these days as “interfering in the domestic affairs of any nations” as the world has become a global village where the acts, omissions and brutality of any regime has an impact on its neighbor and unlike post 1945 pussy footings, today the world reacts swiftly and immediately to both international and domestic terrorism of any forms!’
Consumerist: Wisma Putra Advised To Be Fluent In Todays’ International Relations Posturing!
It is true that the Chinese ambassador Huang Hui Kang paid a visit to Petaling Street on the eve of an anti-Chinese rally by Malay right wing groups and the inexplicable silence by those who claim to be statesmen and beholders of dignity and decorum!
And what was the sins of the former that required that stern response from Wisma Putra?
All this ambassador of peace stated was that his nation was against all forms of terrorism, as well as racism and extremism which target specific ethnic groups, his walkabout in the area known as Chinatown which inexplicably certain vernacular mainstream media barons or should I say bigots avoided?
And who was this unnamed Wisma Putra source so fast on the draw but having no courage to go on record and will remain nameless?
But allow me as an expert of International Law to now tell him/her that there is nothing these days as “interfering in the domestic affairs of any nations” as the world has become a global village where the acts, omissions and brutality of any regime has an impact on its neighbor and unlike post 1945 pussy footings, today the world reacts swiftly and immediately to both international and domestic terrorism of any forms!
The honorable diplomat only stated what was enshrined in the laws and beatitudes of the UN – period that nobody – yes, nobody has the right to undermine the authority of the law or trample on the rule of law.
This must be strange to certain quarters who have their heads up so deep inside a camels ass to understand but this is international law and the law of the civilized!
Going further on the points raised by the Chinese Diplomat – he states quite rightly the following:
“the Chinese government has always pursued peaceful co-existence in international relationship and non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries”.
Come off the backsides of camels – is going for a walk-a-bout in the street in Chinatown distributing moon cakes (on occasion of the mid-autumn festival) an “interference in domestic affairs” now?
Are we now telling the world audience that a diplomat cannot spread a bit of goodwill to the locals?
Or is there another ugly dynamics at play here?
Let us always be mindful that China is now the world largest economy!
China is the second largest export partner for Malaysia with ~$29B (12.6%) in 2013.
China is the largest import partner for Malaysia with also ~29B (15.1%) in 2013, however this only contributed 1.23% export for China.
While one in their lust to suck deeply up can be upset with the Chinese envoy, can be get off our hobby horses and learn to look at the bigger picture?
They have learned from history and had swallowed much bitterness and humiliation.
Many say China is in trouble now but how many countries can still boast a growth rate of 7% per annum?
Go to China and see for yourself their vibrant domestic economy and the anti-corruption drive undertaken by President Xi Jinping.
Before any other moron or idiots in high and very low places have ideas let me inform them that like China, India has the second largest Diaspora in the world.
The overseas Indian community estimated at over 25 million is spread across every major region in the world.
And quite recently, beloved Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed 50,000 strong Indian diaspora at the Dubai cricket stadium where the crowd roared and cheered in approval when he said:
“If there is an Indian anywhere in the world, we don’t look at the colour of passports, the color of his blood, the relation with the motherland is enough.”
To me in this incident, and others prior, the street demonstrations, the racial profiling, racist chants and bullying, which must have been repeatedly picked up in the advisories and diplomatic chat – China like India, is responding sending a clear message to the world that no one is going to bully and humiliate Chinese diaspora anymore?
IF one is smart – they will get the drift!
