The United States, Britain and their Western allies do not wish to see a strong and united China as the Asian giant poses a threat to their interests and dominance of world political affairs.
Speaking to Zimbabwean journalists in China, the Vice President and Editor-in-Chief of the China International Publishing Group, Mr Huang You Yi, said by supporting and selling billions of dollars worth of military hardware to Taiwan and its explicit support of the estranged Dalai Lama, the United Statesâ€™ agenda is to destabilise China and divide its people.
â€œAfter engaging the Unites States on its support for the separatist agenda in Taiwan, the United States pledged to cease its funding of that country but this was only lip service. Up to now, they continue to sell arms to Taiwan,â€ said Mr You Yi.
He added that the situation was similar in Tibet, where the United States and Britain are supporting the Dalai Lama in his quest for an autonomous Tibet.
â€œFortunately, the Han-Chinese population in Tibet, who happen to be the majority, have resisted the machinations. The US and British governments continue to support the Dalai Lama from his base in India,â€ he said.
Speaking earlier to Zimbabwean journalists in China, Ms Yao Jumei of the Information Office of the State Council, said China views the Dalai Lama not as a religious leader, but a politician who is being used by the United States to advance its interests and to destabilise the great Asian nation.
Mr You Yi said Chinaâ€™s policy is to be sympathetic to the weaker nations or parties.
He said, â€œIn Zimbabwe then Rhodesia, when the oppressed were fighting for liberation, China supported the smaller of the parties, who happened to be ZANLA and which later emerged the biggest in the country.â€
â€œPresently, China is sympathetic and friendly to Zimbabwe, Cuba, Iran and North Korea, countries regarded as pariah states by the United States and its allies,â€ he added.
