    Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao reasserts “one China”, warns “outside interference” in South China Sea

    Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao sought to reassure Southeast Asia on Friday about his country’s peaceful intentions, pledging to deepen ties with the Southeast Asian bloc as it is confronted with issues on security and the economy.

    Meeting with leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) on the Indonesian island of Bali, Wen said “the ASEAN countries follow the one China policy, support China’s peaceful reunification, and accommodate China’s concerns on major issues of principle involving China’s sovereignty,” according to Wen also warned against outside interference over the South China Sea dispute, in a challenge to the US which wants to broach the issue.

    “The disputes over the South China Sea between the relevant countries in the region have existed for many years. They should be settled through friendly consultation and negotiation between the sovereign states directly concerned. Outside forces should not get involved under any excuse,” Wen said, without directly mentioning the US.

    Wen insisted it had only peaceful intent and wished to strengthen political mutual trust amid international concerns about an increasingly aggressive China.

    “China will never seek hegemony and is opposed to all hegemonic acts,” he said. “We are committed to a policy of building good-neighborly relations and partnership with our neighboring countries.”

    Wen also pledged to promoting East Asian cooperation in economy, infrastructure and maritime safety and so on.

    The US, who is now shifting their focus to the Pacific, wanted a bigger presence in Asia, by signing a strategic agreement with Philippines and expanding the US military footprint in Australia.

    With the current rivalry between the US and China in trying to become the primary power, China is seen rigid enough to challenge the US and to collect Asian support.

    US President Barack Obama and Wen were to meet Saturday morning, but were not expected to make statements to the media.
