(Letter) China Punishes France and EU
He plans to go ahead anyway. China thus canceled the China-EU summit in France.
Some called it “crazy”, others called it “unreasonable”, still others are “shocked”.
They shouldn’t. The China-EU relation has been worsening for a number of years. China was looking for a way to show its displeasure.
Basically, China supported EU as a cohesive entity for many years but got nothing in return. Worse, the uncohesiveness of the EU hindered the relationship.
Some little country in EU could veto anything and didn’t need to bear any consequence.
Being supportive of EU got China to nowhere. China is returning to the divide and conquer approach. That’s why the summit is canceled.
EU has only itself to blame.
Some EU analysts are calling a more unified China policy to avoid being punished individually, like France is right now. Good luck.
