China should initiate the negotiations on urgent matters, including the Middle East crisis, under the G20 framework and take part in joint strikes against the IS if the consensus within G20 is to do so. It could even consider sending troops to Iraq to prevent the Islamic militants from sabotaging Iraq's normal economic order and to protect global economic interest.

But even while doing all this,  ...

>China's top legislature, should issue legislation granting the government powers to defend the country's interests overseas.<

The government does not need more powers to defend the country's interest overseas - it already has that power. More important, joining the imperialists in bombing and killing Middle Easterners, irrespective of their religious affiliations, in NOT in China's interests. China should engage in making peace, but not be led by Western propaganda and become cannon fodder for the West. That the above article is written by a "deputy director of the Department of Chinese Trade Studies at the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation" shows the level of infiltration the West already has in China's major institutions.

"China is the largest importer of Iraqi oil, accounting for more than 50 percent of the total."

I am wondering from where the author got his figure of "more than 50% of the total" of Iraq's oil is exported to China.

I searched and found the following:-

"But China’s exposure to Iraq is still relatively small, and its investments there represent only about 2% of China’s total global investment. Customs data show that imports of Iraqi crude still comprise just one-tenth of China’s total oil imports, and less than 1% of the country’s overall energy needs."

"Iraq is China’s fifth-largest overseas oil supplier, behind top producer Saudi Arabia (which last year provided 19 percent of the country’s 5.6 million barrels a day), as well as Angola, Oman, and Russia."

China has always wanted but to US, all efforts so far are not in favor of US and must follow instructions from the White House without demand! This is the order of the world as US sees it. So, there is no valid reason for China to comply. China wants peace through dialog not dialog to war as the only option open to those who do not or cannot accept the demands of US. Let this be made clear to the US!

China has enough problems repressing her own people without taking it on a global scale.
