Former WB chief Zoellick says US "self-deceptive diplomacy" towards China dangerous

The assumption that China is only a disrupter within the international system is dangerous in US diplomacy, former World Bank President Robert Zoellick has said. Those who assume that China is only a disrupter "are misleading themselves, and self-deception is dangerous in diplomacy," Zoellick said in a keynote speech Wednesday at the annual gala of the US-China Business Council, which represents more than 200 US companies that do business with China.
