It’s usual these days that every policy statement coming out of Beijing is minutely scrutinised and commented on by the English language media, so the absence of any alarm bells on and after February 3 came as something of a surprise.
The 13th Meeting of Russia, India and China’s foreign ministers should have merited at least passing mention – but not a single major western newspaper covered it.
There was no reporting of the final communique; no editorial comment was made and no reaction sought, from Washington or London.
Only Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post thought it newsworthy that China’s foreign minister, along with his Russian and Indian counterparts, was emphasizing a vision that many in the West have long feared – a vision of a new world order.
