China: Blogger suggests agenda

The Sun Bin blogger raises two issues he expects to see addressed during Chinese president Hu Jintao's visit to the United States this week: plans for Iran and Tibetan independence:

“Dalai [Lama] is showing to Hu that he can command all the Tibetan separatists (I guess I can use this term now as Dalai clarified his objective) outside, or is taking a challenge from the negotiator. If this is the case, he is bold, brave and confident. This also explains the non-coincidental visit of Dalai himself, who follows Hu's footsteps to the hotspots. Being able to command the majority is something, being able to command every faction, at every instance is really something. He might have to do it a couple more times.”

  • I’d love to add a third issue, which I consider relevant: stop the discrimination against the Uighurs of Xinjiang and the massive exploitation of the region’s resources.
