Curiosa esta declaração do presidente do Banco Mundial a uma semana da cimeira China-África..
Vale a pena ler e pensar, em especial, sobre a seguinte declaração:
"There is a real risk of seeing countries which have benefited from debt relief become heavily indebted once more"
Algo, claro está, que os países "desenvolvidos" nunca fizeram ao longo dos últimos cinquenta anos...
A China já reagiu. como se esperava:
"China said on Tuesday criticisms that its loans to Africa failed to take into account local human rights situations were "groundless" and "unacceptable".
Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Liu Jianchao made the remarks at a regular press conference when asked to comment on World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz's reported remarks that China had ignored the human rights situation in African countries when providing loans.
Liu said that China's economic and trade cooperation with African countries is carried out on the basis of equality and mutual benefit, adding that it contributes to improving African people's living standards, and their economic and social development.
China has always adopted a policy of non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries, Liu noted".
P.S. Começa a doer esta ever-close relationship.
