Then we tried the notorious Chinese spirit, baijiu, chatted about how tomatoes were first brought to China and how a certain Chinese dish is similar to a Portuguese one. There might be something more important to talk about. But no one bothered. Intoxicated, my eyes caught a line in the menu: “This month, as we renew and recreate that menu, if only to ask the same question: 'can Peking duck end a war?'” What war? I must be drunk.
No matter how many warships the US sends, will Vietnam, the Philippines or any other country in the area recklessly oppose China? Will it weaken China's control over the relevant islands and reefs? Will it change China's sovereignty in the area? No.

Cooperation with China mirrors Sri Lanka's wish to use its geographical advantage and to turn itself into a transport hub in the North Indian Ocean. However, Colombo's ambition has made other major regional powers uneasy. They have the right to be concerned. But Sri Lanka also has the right to make policies that are in line with its own interests.
