Johannesburg – The United States is trying to destabilise South Africa’s major trading partner, China, the ANC says in documents for its national general council.South Africa’s trade with China surpassed $400bn in the current financial year and the US is trying to rally China’s neighbours against it, the party says in a paper on international relations.The NGC, to be held in October, will assess progress made in implementing resolutions taken at the ANC’s last elective congress, in Mangaung in December 2012."The US does not appreciate the resurgence of China and Russia as dominant factors in the arena of international power relations. It has instead declared a cold war against these two emerging world powers," it says.This is a reaction to the emergence of developing countries, like the Brics group, the ANC says.The US was trying to portray China as the world’s worst polluter, and as a country whose economic development is unsustainable."Washington’s sponsored destabilisation" is happening in South America, the Middle East, and African countries. The intention is to topple progressive, democratically-elected governments.The ANC says it is reviewing its memorandum of understanding with the Communist Party of China. A delegation of ANC national executive committee members went on a two-week study tour to China earlier this year. Another two such trips are planned for later this year.
