Kazuo Nagata: Armitage says Japan, U.S. must make China a partner

From Daily Yomiuri On-Line:

The -U.S. alliance must try to make China a partner in Asia or risk being split by that country, which could use its rising influence as a wedge, former U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage warned Friday.

“Rising Chinese influence on regional and global affairs is inevitable, but there is nothing inevitably good or bad about that influence,” Armitage said in a lecture in Tokyo, citing China’s role in recent six-party talks on North Korea’s nuclear development as a positive result of such influence that “complements U.S. and Japanese interests.”
