Debate: Xi in Europe

5

The West just doesn’t know what tack to take with China, Freitag complains:

“The attacks seem petty and at times narrow-minded. … Xi Jinping won’t be monopolised, he is not a hegemonic figure, he neither recommends a canon of values to others nor does he presume to interfere in the internal affairs of other states, as German foreign policy is currently doing to the point of arrogance. This is why the West is often perceived as overbearing in Beijing, but it puts the West in its place calmly and with moderation, if at all. The fact that China rarely allows itself to be challenged in this respect, but instead reacts with calm sovereignty, should finally receive more attention in Paris, Brussels and Berlin, where they think they are the measure of all things.”
