BEIJING, Oct. 11 (Xinhua) -- In recent years, China has seen notable growth in its wild animal population, a result of the country's continuous animal protection efforts.

According to a white paper titled "Biodiversity Conservation in China," the population of giant pandas in the wild has grown from 1,114 to 1,864 over the past four decades, while the Asian elephant population in the wild has grown from 180 in the 1980s to about 300 at present.

The country will continue to promote the peaceful co-existence of humans and wild animals. Measures will demarcate boundaries of wildlife habitats based on actual situations, improve animal habitats, and provide policy support.

GLOBALink | AUKUS pact risks nuclear proliferation, threatening regional stability: Thai expert

Published in CHINA
Wednesday, 06 October 2021 08:51

The military pact among the United States, Britain and Australia, known as AUKUS, poses a risk of nuclear material and technology proliferation, and threatens peace, stability and security in the Asia-Pacific, a Thai expert has said.

"I'm quite sure that the AUKUS poses a risk of proliferation of nuclear material and technology," Surasit Thanadtang, director of the Thai-Chinese Strategic Research Center under the National Research Council of Thailand, told Xinhua in an interview.

The pact will let Australia build nuclear-powered submarines for the first time, Surasit said, adding that with the technology provided by the United States, it would go further to weapon technology that might have more impacts on regional peace, stability and security.

"The AUKUS pact is probably the most significant security arrangement among the three nations since WWII, and it focuses on military capability," he said.

Surasit noted that the United States is sharing the submarine technology for the first time in 50 years, and this time it might be more challenging to the region because of the highly enriched uranium material.

"It's already the weapon-grade nuclear. It's not a nuclear for peaceful development," the expert said.

To more effectively safeguard regional peace, stability and development, Surasit said countries should uphold promoting and seeking security cooperation based on a new concept that emphasizes joint and comprehensive cooperation in ensuring sustainable security and creating a security governance framework with regional characteristics.

Countries in the region should jointly build a road of peace, while the key factors of success would include an environment of relative stability and concerted efforts to build development networks, both hard skills and soft skills for youth society, with contribution to regional peace and stability, he said.

He noted that instead of nuclear-powered submarines, what the region needs most is marine research and development in humanitarian, seaside disaster relief, countering terrorism and transnational crime as well as green development of the sea.
