The times when China was coolheaded and cautious regarding its foreign policy are over; the Asian giant is ready to show its teeth when its interests are at stake, the India-based newspaper Milli Gazette reported.

More than any other reason, this is why China remains a staunch ally of Iran.

The fact that Morsi chose to visit China indicates that Egypt may be looking to join this Iran-China axis!
