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.

GLOBALink | Track-laying work for major railway in China's Xinjiang completed /Video/

Published in CHINA
Tuesday, 28 September 2021 12:37

The track-laying work for the Hotan-Ruoqiang Railway, the final section of the Taklimakan Desert railway loop line, was completed on Monday morning in Minfeng County in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

Construction on the Hotan-Ruoqiang Railway started in December 2018. As a key national railway project extending over 825 km, it links up Hotan City in Hotan Prefecture with Ruoqiang County in Bayingolin Mongolian Autonomous Prefecture.

When the railway goes into operation, it will fully encircle the Taklimakan Desert when connected with the existing Golmud-Korla Railway, the Kashgar-Hotan Railway and a number of other southern Xinjiang railways.

"This railway line runs through the southern edge of the Taklimakan Desert. Sandstorms pose a serious threat to railway construction and operation as tracks can be buried," said Yang Baorong, chief designer of the Hotan-Ruoqiang Railway.

Wang Jinzhong, chairman of Xinjiang Hotan-Ruoqiang Railway Co., Ltd., said anti-desertification programs and railway construction were carried out simultaneously, which is unprecedented in China. A total of 50 million square meters of grass grids were laid and 13 million seedlings were planted. Where the threat of sandstorms is greatest, viaducts were built to allow for safe passage.

As an important regional railway included in the national medium- and long-term railway network plan, the Hotan-Ruoqiang Railway is expected to open in June 2022.

At that time, five counties in southern Xinjiang and certain towns of the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps will be connected to the provincial rail network, which is of great significance to promoting the economic and social development of southern Xinjiang.
