Japan Unlikely to Meet with China at U.N. General Assembly

According to Japanese government sources, Japanese Prime Minister Kan and Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao likely will not meet on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly meeting in late September. This is a modestly significant development because such meetings are almost standard practice. China previously postponed a visit to Japan because of the maritime confrontation in which a Chinese fishing boat apparently deliberately rammed Japanese patrol boats. This latest development means that the fishing boat dispute continues to fester and escalate. It also reinforces the NightWatch assessment that the fishing boat incident is almost a strategic confrontation.

China to Build Pipelines from Myanmar

According to Chinese media, The China National Petroleum Corporation has begun construction of oil and natural gas pipelines between China and Myanmar. According to the company's statement, CNPC wants to complete the China section of the pipelines, as well as the refinery, by 2013. The significance of this information, plus other recent reports about China building a railroad through Burma, is that they reinforce the assessment that Chinese leaders see Burma as a gateway for channeling natural resources to China. This symbolizes the next step in China's economic expansion by creating a network of vertical and horizontal monopolies on a global scale.
