澳洲最大富豪之一、澳洲第三大铁矿石生产商“福蒂斯丘金属集团（FMG Fortescue Metals Group）”总裁安德鲁•弗雷斯特（Andrew Forrest），最近一直谈论上个月他与中方高层的谈话，并告诉澳洲人要与中国友好相处。但是他却不知道接待他的中共所谓“联谊组织”，实际上是解放军的一个情报收集部门。
CCP Rope-In Western Leaders
Australian media recently reported that the
China Association for International Friendly Contact (CAIFC)
under General Political Department of PLA is an intelligence gathering platform,
and it uses all means to rope in military, political and business
leaders, in the US, Australia and other Western countries.
But they don’t know the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s
so-called CAIFC is an intelligence agency of PLA.
On the other hand, analysts believe, the CCP also bribed
Western politicians, including Western military leaders.
Many Western politicians have been won over by the CCP
and helped the CCP in a variety of foreign affairs.
Sydney Morning Herald in Australia published on May 25:
Chinese Communist Party Painstaking Efforts to Make Friends.
The article said former Deputy Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff,
retired Admiral, Bill Owens was treated by Zhang Yang,
the director of the General Political Department of the CCP,
and met with a number of People’s Liberation Army generals.
The article revealed that as director of the General Political
Department, Zhang Yang is responsible for maintaining
discipline and ideology of the PLA and resisting mutiny.
Another duty is to find weaknesses in the defense agencies
of foreign countries, and influence their decisions.
CAIFC under General Political Department of PLA,
formerly known as the enemy reconnaissance unit,
its main responsibility is to disintegrate the enemy
and unite friendly military force.
According to the Australian media, Fairfax, retired
Admiral Bill Owens is the Chinese military’s favorite,
he has had dinner together with Xu Qiliang,
Vice Chairman of the Central Military Commission,
as well as Xu’s predecessor Xu Caihou.
In the past six years, the time he’s spent meeting
with senior Chinese Communist generals,
would probably be more than all the time he spent
meeting with generals serving the United States.
Before the 18th National People’s Congress (NPC), the
China Association for International Friendly Contact (CAIFC),
arranged a meeting between an America business
delegation lead by John Mack, CEO of Morgan Stanley-
an Investment Bank and Bill Owens.
The meeting was held in Ziguangge at Zhongnanhai.
Xia Ming, a political science professor in
City University of New York said that
many Western politicians were roped in by the CCP,
and help the CCP in a variety of foreign affairs.
Xia Ming: “You can see in the world,
Chinese lobbyists indeed talk to many people.
Today, on the globe, the biggest obstacle to breaking
the powers of the CCP is not the CCP itself,
but the united front it has established in the world.
It has a very big impact."
CAIFC also invited former Australian Prime Minister
John Howard, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair,
and the United States Microsoft founder Bill Gates
to attend the first China Charity Forum.
New Zealand Daily News editor Chen Weijian believes that
the Western countries are certainly aware of
the penetration of the CCP,
but because they pursue the Chinese market,
they bow down to befriend the CCP.
New Zealand Daily News editor Chen Weijian:
“Because Western countries have a large range of interests,
they hope to improve their economic situation
through trade with China.
Now because of problems in western economies, the CCP
bribe Western politicians, including the Western military."
The report also said, Owens utilized his commercial,
military and technological expertise in a range of telecommunications companies.
He also owns a private equity investment firm in Hong Kong.
He has recently set up a consulting company in Beijing –
Prometheus, mainly for cross-border transfer of technology,
and how to overcome political barriers in its acquisition.
The Charity of great significance that Owens talked about is to
sponsor numerous retired senior U.S. generals to visit China.
Interestingly, the retired U.S. generals team’s actions and
plans were all beneficial for the Chinese military,
but no specific commitments from China to
the United States in return.
CEO Andrew Forrest, one of Australia’s biggest tycoons,
Australia’s third largest iron ore producer, FMG Fortescue Metals Group,
has recently been talking about his conversations with
the high-levels of China and told Australians to live in friendship with China.
But he did not know the so-called CAIFC
is actually an intelligence agency of the PLA.
It is reported that four major banks in Australia, Jet Airways,
senior levels of Australia’s Commerce Committee,
and former ambassador to China Geoff Raby,
had all received hospitality of this organization,
but these business leaders are totally unaware.
