Notable China-related quotes from the last week:
Major General Luo Yuan, a senior researcher with the Academy of Military Sciences in Beijing, on the recent collision between a Chinese submarine and an underwater sonar array towed by the USS John S. McCain:
"The best way to avoid such collisions is for the Pentagon to stop its unfriendly moves toward China in this region."
Hu Yunteng, director general of the Supreme People’s Court research bureau, on why Beijing is preparing to start using lethal injection:
"As lethal injection is the most popular method for execution adopted by countries with capital punishment, China will follow suit."
Wang Fa’an, a senior researcher on the construction of armed forces with the Academy of Military Sciences, on what Beijing should do to defend its growing extraterrestrial assets:
"Hi-tech military corps, including space forces, need to be considered in the future development plan of the Chinese Army."
Dan Glickman, chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America, on efforts to get Beijing to reduce their quotas on movie imports and improve intellectual property protection:
"If it’s just us pushing the Chinese government alone, it’s probably not going to get a lot of progress. We need to get much more Chinese engagement in the issue."
