Merde in Taiwan

"There is only one China (...) Taiwan is wrong to plan a referendum on UN membership."

Satisfied ? Now please sign here to confirm China's order for EUR 20 bn of high tech French stuff.

High tech vs. low profile. Really really realpolitik.

Nicolas Sarkozy did everything it took to clinch juicy deals with China Inc yesterday. It surely pays in the short term but later ?

In Beijing, everybody was all smiles but Eric Besson, one of the few socialist members of Sarkozy's Government. Kouchner was elsewhere, Rama Yade in some kind of diplomatic twilight zone...

and Gallic pride nowhere to be seen.
