China to exploit resources in melting Arctic Ocean

Chen Lianzheng

When Chinese premier Wen Jiabao visited Iceland in April, a framework agreement was signed between China and Iceland on Arctic Cooperation. As ice is melting in the Arctic Ocean, exploitation of the rich resources there will soon be much easier.

Iceland has the geographic advantage, while China the financial resources and technology. Cooperation between China and Iceland will be the best choice for the two countries as long as China does not become a bully.

As a specific step for such cooperation, according to China Ocean News, China’s icebreaker research ship the Xue Long is scheduled to visit Iceland in mid-August.

The paper says, “Chen Lianzheng, deputy administrator of China’s State Oceanic Administration, met Mrs. Kristin A. Arnadottir, Iceland ambassador to China, in Beijing on August 7 to discuss matters concerning China’s fifth Arctic scientific expedition team’s visit to Iceland in mid-August.”

Chen briefed the ambassador about the activities of the Chinese team. The team set out from Qingdao on July 2 and conducted investigation in North Arctic-Pacific fan-shaped area and then went northwest and reached the North Arctic-Atlantic fan-shaped area.

It is conducting investigation in the Norwegian Sea and Greenland, and plans to arrive at Iceland on August 16, when it has completed its investigation there.

Chen suggests that the two sides cooperate satisfactorily in organising the visiting activities and that Iceland provides necessary security safeguarding for the ship so that the visit will promote friendship between the peoples of the two countries..

Kristin says that the ship’s visit is very important for China and Iceland’s future oceanic and Arctic cooperation. Iceland will do its best to ensure that the visiting activities will be carried out smoothly and is willing to make greater contribution to the new breakthrough in the two countries’ oceanic cooperation and exchange and boost joint development of the two sides’ oceanic undertakings.

Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
