Kina til Merkel: "Vi er ikke så dumme!"

Jeg vet ikke hvorfor det norske mediene e24 forsøker å late som kinesere, er veldig interessert i å hjelpe de europeiske gjeldskrise landene.

Kinas statsminister presiserte imidlertid ikke hvordan regimet i Beijing spesifikt vil bidra, men nevnte at det kan bli aktuelt å bruke EUs stabiliseringsfond, melder AFP. " - E24

De presiserte at de IKKE vil kjøpe statsgjeld, men var interessert i industrielle firmaer og realverdier. Lurer på om det blir de  kinesiske "kommunistene" som får for første gang brutt opp makten til de europeiske fagforeningene.

THE head of China’s US$410 billion sovereign wealth fund brushed aside a call by German Chancellor Angela Merkel to buy European government debt, saying yesterday that such investments were “difficult” for long-term investors.
In comments ahead of a China-EU summit which starts today, Lou Jiwei, chairman of China Investment Corp, said any fresh injection of funds into Europe would be in industrial and other real assets, not government bonds.
Speaking at a forum in Beijing, Lou said Merkel had asked CIC and other long-term investors to buy European government debt when she visited the capital earlier this month.
“For European bonds like the government bonds of Italy and Spain, only central banks with certain responsibilities can invest,” he said.
“But it’s more difficult for long-term investors like us to make (such) investments,” he told the annual meeting of China Economists 50 Forum, a club of government officials and economists.
“Investment opportunities may lie in areas like infrastructure and industrial projects, and these projects can help economic recovery,” he said.
A central bank adviser echoed Lou’s harder line on buying European government debt. “We may be poor, but we aren’t stupid,” Xia Bin told reporters at the forum.
“We must follow commercial principles in making such investments. That means we want returns.”
Lou, who predicted Europe will “inevitably” fall into recession, said Merkel had asked CIC to buy European government debt, including that of France and Germany.
During Merkel’s visit to China, Premier Wen Jiabao said Beijing was considering increasing its participation in rescue funds set up by the European Union to help ease the debt crisis, although he didn’t make any explicit commitments.
The China-EU summit, which had been postponed from December, will bring together Wen and President Hu Jintao with European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and European Council President Herman Van Rompuy.
The European Stability Mechanism, a 500 billion euro (US$662 billion) permanent bailout fund due to become operational in July, is expected to replace the European Financial Stability Facility, a temporary fund that has been used to bail out Ireland and Portugal and will help in the second Greek package.
The eurozone must agree to and approve a 130 billion euro bailout package for Greece before tomorrow to allow time for complex legal procedures involved in a bond swap to be completed in time for a March 20 bond redemption.
Failure to strike a deal risks pushing Athens into a debt default that could threaten its future in the eurozone and worsen the crisis.
