Really? China Supports Africa Peace? Development yes. But Peace?
In Brazil at the end of 2013 a group of bankers from East Africa told me that China was “beating out the US when it comes to development in Africa because China doesn’t care about human rights.”
It’s clever for China News Service (CNS) to state China supports peace in Africa, but I’ll listen to the East Africans.
One of the long running advantages (or disadvantages) of US development efforts is its constant focus on human rights including women’s rights, safe work conditions, clean water, and more.
China supports Africa Peace? China supports China’s insatiable need for raw materials. Moving around the world and signing contracts to extract from other countries only serves China in the long run.
Africa may be suffering from “colonial amnesia” if its leaders think China supports peace…….HK

Hailing the progress of China-Africa ties, Li said he expects to visit Africa later this year to further consolidate both the friendship and cooperation.
