Part 1: China fights corruption

China’s leaders have repeatedly stressed the need to stamp out corruption and build a clean government. This has been reinforced by the Supreme People’s Court and the Supreme People’s Procuratorate.

Part 2: China's foreign policy

China - Mideast & N. Africa

China promotes peace in Mideast & N. Africa

Recent conflicts in West Asia and North Africa continue to draw wide concern. Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi has reiterated China’s stance on these issues in a press conference earlier this week. He emphasized, China would always support efforts to resolve conflicts through peaceful means.

China - US

China values good US relations

As the US defense strategy is now focusing on the Far East, the likelihood of a confrontation between China and the United States in the Asia-Pacific Region is increasing. But leaders of the two countries have consistently advocated keeping the Strategic Partnership on track.

China – Japan

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the normalization of Sino-Japanese ties. Japan and China pledged to promote exchanges and cooperation during Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda’s visit to China last year. Competition and cooperation between China and Japan not only affects these two countries but also East Asia and the world at large.

China - Korean Peninsula

Expectations are high that the six-party talks on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula will resume in the close future. At a press conference on the sidelines of the annual session of the National People’s Congress, Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi has said there is a positive trend towards better communication among various parties involved.

Part 3: Media Watch: Polls on China's foreign policy


"Should China shoulder more responsibilities in international affairs?" So far, the results are overwhelming - over 90% of respondents say China should only shoulder a "reasonable" amount of responsibility for international affairs and only to defend its interests. The two other options in this poll are "China is strong enough to take on more responsibilities" and "China should not get involved in international affairs nor build its own strength." Both those options were widely discarded by netizens.
