Key words (1) Best Friends, (2) Powerful Country
Let's dissect the question!|
What are powerful countries.
Conditions to be considered a powerful country!
(a) High Per capita income = associated with complex tertiary society.
(b) High Productivity Industry = surplus of durable, consumeable production.
(c) Surplus or Sufficient natural resources = energy, mineral, grain, meat, vegetable, fruits, spices, commodities.
(d) Strong military = generally with expeditionary force capability.
so, Powerful country would be = USA/protectorates, British Club, France-EU, Russia-CIS and by default of large population China.
Condition to be friends.
This is a civil relationship between people not related by blood ties.
generally speaking, we keep communications, keep confidences, trade, help, cooperate with such people!
In such case, all the BIG countries are "friends" of China.
BEST friends - would be "CLOSEST".
In that case, EAST ASIA is the closest - with biggest connections.
But THESE nations, while BIG as a group - are dwarf states.
Of the POWERFUL country - Japan is closest among the dwarf states but it's a "protectorate" of USA.
Second nearest is the British Club, with cleft states-blood ties Malaya, Singapore, (even Hong Kong), Australia, New Zealand, Canada - while the UK is a big distant - helped China with the Jet engine, Polyester production, Iron ore/Uranium supply. Russia and CIS is powerful, but the trade, language is weak. USA is just a buyer and is a threat to China with it's game on "preventing China from gaining access to crude oil"!
So, the BEST FRIEND of China - surely by LOGIC, COMMON SENSE is the BRITISH CLUB!
