Japan pays British think tank to propagate against China
Japan pays British think tank to propagate against China: 

January 30, 2017Last Updated at 08:04 IST

Japan has been paying 10,000 pounds per month to a British think tank to hype up "China threat" among British high-level politicians, the media here has reported.

A detailed report carried out by The Sunday Times said that the Japanese Embassy in London reached a deal with the Henry Jackson Society (HJS), a registered charity, to wage a propaganda campaign against China.


It said that the deal was reached in response to growing cooperation between China and Britain, Xinhua news agency reported on Monday.

This weekend, the former British Foreign Secretary Malcolm Rifkind acknowledged that the HJS, founded in 2005, had approached him to put his name to an article published by the Daily Telegraph in August 2016, expressing concerns about China's involvement in Britain's Hinkley Point C nuclear plant.

The article, titled "How China could switch off Britain's lights in a crisis if we let them build Hinkley C", raised fears that "no one knows what 'blackdoor' technologies might... introduce.. into the building of a power plant..."

The Sunday Times said Japan's secret PR (public relations) war on China reflects Tokyo's concerns about the "golden decade" of Sino-British cooperation.

原标题:英媒:日本驻英使馆资助英国智库展开反华公关宣传

【环球网报道 记者 任梅子】英国广播公司(BBC)援引《星期日泰晤士报》1月30日报道称,英国智库亨利杰克逊学会(Henry Jackson Seciety)“每月从日本大使馆获得1万英镑的经费,帮助针对中国的公关宣传”。

该报称,“亨利杰克逊学会,作为注册的慈善机构,鼓励包括前外相马尔寇姆•利夫金德(Malcolm Rifkind)在内的政界人士和记者对中国的外交政策提出反对。”

报道还称,利夫金德证实,他曾经与亨利杰克逊学会接洽,去年8月在《每日电讯报》上发表了一篇署名文章。该文章对中国涉及英国欣克利角核电站工程表达忧虑。“这篇文章也增加了人们的担心,因为没有人知道秘密科技可能被引入修建核电站”。

利夫金德表示,他并不知道亨利杰克逊学会与日本大使馆的“金钱关系”,但他同时表示,该学会“在要求我支持他们提供的这篇文章时,应该让我知道这一关系”。

《星期日泰晤士报》称,看到了由公关和媒体情报公司MIP和亨利杰克逊学会的方案,为日本驻伦敦大使馆执行“联络战略”,每月价格1万5千英镑。这一方案在2016年初起草,旨在让日本问题“成为英国主流记者和政界人士的关注点”。方案还显示,这一战略将着眼“中国扩张主义对西方战略利益构成的威胁”。

该报还称,“据信亨利杰克逊学会安排的战略没有MIP参加,收费也降低到1万英镑外加开销”。
