China continues to flout agreements that it has signed

Since China has never renounced the Maoist idea that "power flows from the barrels of guns", and since no power except Russia or the USA can cause it to rethink its actions for military reasons, it is not at all surprising that China continues to break its treaties and agreements with impunity - the latest newspaper report regards China's breaking its agreement with Japan to jointly-develop gas fields in disputed areas such as the East China Sea -

Smaller countries bordering China see the pattern in China's behaviour, are too timid or weak to do anything but treat it with respect. What is a mystery is why Japan continues to treat China as a respectable nation - or indeed why other strong countries continue to do so. Sphere: Related Content
