Compared with 2010, when Russia had not yet annexed Crimea, and China was at the end of the Hu Jintao era, it was impossible to see Xi Jinping’s strength today. The most important point of news in China at that time was not Xi Jinping’s proposition, but It was the dispute between Bo Xilai, Secretary of the Chongqing Municipal Party Committee, and Wang Yang, Secretary of the Guangdong Provincial Party Committee, on "making the cake bigger vs. dividing the cake well".
In the future, the "16 plus one" forum, which will arouse the EU's great concern, will not appear until two years later. While the world was industry email list struggling to recover from the 2008 financial tsunami, the financial tsunami also triggered the so-called "European Pig Five" problem within the European Union. Of course, German Chancellor Angela Merkel's reputation is in full swing, as the leader of the European Union and the voice of global interests. In addition, NATO's overseas missions at that time were mainly anti-terrorism and peacekeeping in Afghanistan.
Because of its direct involvement (boots on the ground), there would naturally be more concerns about Afghanistan issues and terrorism. The anti-terrorism part of the 2010 strategic concept has a high proportion, and the Arab Spring is also in the early stage. Whether there is an opportunity for democratization in the Middle East, the mood at that time was anticipation and optimism.
