John Chan: China’s tsunami aid: political interests not humanitarian concern

From World Socialist Website: “In the lead up to the UN-sponsored tsunami summit in Jakarta on January 6, the Beijing bureaucracy announced, with considerable fanfare, an unprecedented assistance package totalling $83 million for the victims of the disaster.

President Hu Jintao told the press that the Chinese government would provide ‘any possible aid in its power to those need it.’ The state-controlled media boasted that the decision was a sign that China was emerging as a ‘responsible’ power in the region.”
