Dai Bingguo (戴秉国): The Core Interests of the People’s Republic of China

W020080317645172733600Dai Bingguo (戴秉国), State Councilor, was one of the leading officials to participate in the recent high-level talks between the United States and China. The following quote is from China News Agency’s report on July 28, 2009, via Chinanews.com.cn, translated by CDT:

To ensure the US-China relationship develops forward in a stable, healthy and long-term way, it is very important to mutually understand, respect and support the other side, and defend our own core interests.” Dai Bingguo continues on to say that China’s number one core interest is to maintain its fundamental system and state security; next is state sovereignty and territorial integrity; and third is the continued stable development of the economy and society.
