China is a nation of more than 5,000 years of civilization, rule of laws on moral principles and values. Therefore China is not a nation like others in a hurry.

When China’s navy, (Chinese: 三保太監下西洋), admiral Zheng He or Cheng Ho (1371–1435) who was Muslim, mariner, explorer, diplomat and fleet admiral, who commanded voyages to Southeast Asia, South Asia, and East Africa and the world from 1405 to 1433 before Christopher Columbus, China did not colonize or conquer the counties visited, unlike the Westerner’s Columbus and colonialists and imperialism whose gunboat policies conquered and forced others signed the unequal treaties of colonizations, commercialization, and exploitation of Asia, Africa, America and Pacific countries, etc!
