Or at least an opinion column showing on the front page of the People’s Daily says that, so Herald of War feels comfortable believing it’s an unofficial statement of the official line. (Herald rather doubts anything else is published there. What with China being a one-party police state and all.)
The writer suggests that first, the pivot to Asia is unhelpful, raising regional tensions, and second, the Middle East is too important for America to neglect. That’s where the resources and effort should go.
So that’s the Chinese view of the pivot at the moment. Go pivot somewhere else 🙂
