Sorry, but Chunying holds a brief for the accused. She is incompetent to judge. Mr Gabriel has a valid point.

I read Mr Gabriel's words in the original version and can't find anything wrong in them. Chunying should learn to put her feet in other people's shoes. Mr Gabriel cannot walk in her stilettoes but she can comfortably walk in his sneakers...

Mr Gabriel in fact deplored China's unfair privileges as a foreign power cultivating special relations with the E.U.'s latest and poorest members. China's participation in certain infrastructure construction projects hurts the interests of the E.U.

Last but not least: China does not play by any fair rules. It wants access to the E.U. but it protecgts its own market and that of Asia. It negotiates contracts direct with corrupt leaders of other countries and gets the contracts: Laos, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia...

China only promotes integration of nations (anywhere) when it suits itself.

A single European market suits Chinese exports and investments very well - but the whole EU criticizing China (on any matter) with one voice does not suit China so well.

Also in it's own neighbourhood, China promotes multi-lateral relations when it serves its own interest, but in disputes it always pushes for bilateralism in order to get to play the stronger country card.

China mixes politics with economics. It blackmails countries that do not toe the line China imperiously drew for them. Case in point: S Korea. Lotte of S Korea is closing its supermarkets in China as a result of Chinese boycotts to force the hand of the S Korean government. Japan has plenty experience of the same kind.

China also mixed politics with economics in the case of Norway for a decision taken by the independent Nobel Committee. It blackmailed Norway to make it pliant and servile.
