 It Important to Cover Good Examples of Harmony Diplomacy 
2007-06-25 10:45:06 Xinhua Net ArticleBy Francis C. W. Fung, PH.D.BEIJING, June 25 (Xinhuanet) -- World Harmony Organization(WHO) deems itimportant to cover outstanding examples of harmony diplomacy in work. This is thevalue we place on world harmony renaissance and world harmony diplomacy watch.When two of the largest East and West news agencies meet to renew friendship, mutualrespect and trust it will have profound effect on even handed world news reporting.World understanding and harmony between East and West will surely be enhanced bythis festival celebration.Xinhua News Agency and Reuters on Thursday, June 21,2007 held celebrations in theGreat Hall of the People to mark five decades of cooperation. Xinhua President TianCongming and Reuters Chief Executive Officer Tom Glocer unveiled a photo exhibition,comprising about 120 classic cultural and diplomatic exchange photographs, taken bycorrespondents from Xinhua and Reuters. The exhibition is a fascinating, historicalrecord of a range of political, economic, scientific, technological, cultural, educationaland sporting events over the years.The following are excerpts from Xinhua Net with opinion and concluding remarks fromWorld Harmony Organization. "Over the past 50 years, Xinhua and Reuters haveexchanged visits and staff at many levels and have signed a series of cooperationagreements," Tian said to the gathering. Reuters was the first Western news agency toforge a cooperation with Xinhua. In May 1957, the two news agencies signed a deal onnews story exchange. "I am delighted to see how healthy the cooperation between our two organizations is," Tian said, citing a recent joint training class for Olympics reportersin Beijing. Tian said Xinhua-Reuters cooperation can blossom as long as the two sidesabide by the principles of "mutual respect, close consultation, a long-term perspective,mutual trust and mutual benefit.""Over the last fifty years we have shown that an open and constructive relationship can produce great achievements," Glocer said in his address. Quoting the Chinese proverb "a book tightly shut is only a block of paper", Glocer said the Reuters-Xinhua relationship isan open book. "Today we move to the next of many chapters." Among the approximately100 representatives at the celebrations were two pioneers of Xinhua-Reuters ties --- PengDi, the first Xinhua correspondent in London, and 80-year-old David Chipp, the firstReuters correspondent in Beijing.Founded in 1931, Xinhua News Agency is the most authoritative news agency in Chinaand an international provider of multimedia news and information services. Based in
 
Beijing, Xinhua runs 33 domestic bureaus and 102 overseas bureaus. Xinhua providesround-the-clock news and information services in nearly 200 countries and regions ineight languages: Chinese, English, French, Spanish, Russian, Arabic, Portuguese andJapanese.Senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Li Changchun on Thursday calledon Reuters to report China as it is. "Reuters should be a bridge in helping the worldobtain a better understanding of China and report China as it is," Li said in a meetingwith a Reuters delegation headed by Reuters chairman Niall Fitz Gerald. Li, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, alsohailed the good partnership between Xinhua News Agency and Reuters over the past fiftyyears. Li said exchanges and cooperation among news organizations of differentcountries have become increasingly important as the world has entered an era of information and globalization. Fitz Gerald hailed China's rapid development in economicand social sectors. He said Reuters would like to carry out a more effective partnershipwith Xinhua.As important as Xinhua News as a leader of world media, its professional and evenhanded reporting of world news, Xinhua is still relatively unknown in the U.S. Thosewho know, look at Xinhua with jaundiced eyes suffering from the ill effects of 50 yearsof cold war infection. Their visions are so colored by the U.S. media, some readers' tothis day, unfairly shun Xinhua news. WHO feels extreme injustice that this unfair misjudgment must not be left untreated.Xinhua's reporting stands out with the greatest integrity exceeding many Western newsmedia. Most of all. Xinhua has progressed with the times with a modern world outlook,whereas there are other medias remain short sighted and waddling in the sting pool of  bygone days and engaged in confrontational, name calling, scavenging and mud slinging practices. One of the excuses for discounting Xinhua news is that, it is affiliated withChinese Government. This casual judgment without due diligence is even carried by alarge cross section of Chinese Americans.To quote an English sayings "Do not judge a book by its cover but by its contents" and"Judge a tree's merits by the fruits it bears." Simply put, as independent thinkers we mustread and investigate before we mete out casual judgment. These days in internationalnews Xinhua is a must read media to be in touch with the real world with a balancedview. One of the significant reasons for the lack of awarenesss of Xinhua by the U.S. public, is the ill effect of ethnocentric ommission of significant East and West exchangeevents as indicated here. This points out the importance of advocating harmonydiplomacy.World Harmony Organization has the responsibilty and duty bound to continue our worldharmony renaissnce and harmony diplomacy watch. The Motto for harmony diplomacyfor the 21st Century is rightly so "Mutual respect, mutual trust and mutual development.Carry a strategic and long vision." The old American wisdom that is being revived bysome "Speak softly and carry a big stick" is so 19th century. It has no place in today'snecessary pursue of harmony diplomacy to resolve the extreme disparities of today's
