China issues ‘color revolution’ warning

China issues ‘color revolution’ warning
Central Asia must be wary of interference by ‘major powers,’ China’s defense chief said
The Chinese defense minister has said Beijing stands opposed to foreign intervention in Kazakhstan, warning of “color revolutions” launched under the guise of protests while also vowing to support the country’s efforts to “safeguard national security.”

Following a meeting with Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev in Nur-Sultan on Monday, Defense Minister Wei Fenghe touted the “bright future prospects” offered by bilateral ties, also touching on the threat posed by foreign interference.

“China firmly opposes external forces deliberately instigating a ‘color revolution’ in Kazakhstan, and supports Kazakhstan in taking effective measures to safeguard national security and social stability,” Wei said, as cited by the Defense Ministry. “We must be alert to some major powers interfering in Central Asia and disrupting the security of Central Asia.”

Though the minister did not elaborate, his remarks come around three months after mass protests erupted in Kazakhstan, initially triggered by a hike in fuel prices. Peaceful rallies became violent over the course of several days in January, with at least 225 people killed during clashes with security forces and thousands more injured and arrested.
カザフスタンでは、燃料価格の値上げに端を発した大規模な抗議デモが発生してから約3カ月が経過している。平和的な集会は1月に数日間にわたって暴力的になり、治安部隊との衝突で少なくとも225人が死亡、数千人が負傷し、逮捕された。
The unrest prompted a deployment by the Russian-led Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), which sent peacekeepers into the country at Tokayev’s request and ultimately helped to quell the violence. In response to protesters’ grievances, the government sacked several top officials and vowed a series of political and economic reforms, including the restoration of previous price controls on fuel.

The president claimed tens of thousands of “foreign-trained terrorists” and “bandits” were behind the rioting, arguing they aimed to carry out a coup on behalf of another state, though he did not provide evidence for the assertion.

At the time, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Li said the protests were driven by “three evil forces” of extremism, terrorism and separatism, offering support from Beijing’s security forces. Though Kazakhstan belongs to the China-led Shanghai Cooperation Organization and reserves the right to request security assistance from member states, it did not do so during January’s unrest.
当時、中国の王立外相は、抗議行動は過激主義、テロリズム、分離主義という「3つの悪の勢力」によって引き起こされたと述べ、北京の治安部隊からの支援を申し出た。カザフスタンは中国が主導する上海協力機構に加盟しており、加盟国に治安支援を要請する権利を有しているが、1月の騒乱時には要請していない。

・・・中国はカザフスタンの暴動時に要請があれば治安部隊を派遣するところだったんですね。外国が仕掛けた暴動に対する中国の姿勢が変わりました。
