Donya-e eqtesad (Iran): Israel discussing the Russian involvement in the death of the Chinese Ambassador. But – which side is Russia?!

News Agency “ISNA”: Israeli newspaper, The Jerusalem Post reported that the detection of the Chinese Ambassador dead in his home in Israeli-occupied territory gave rise to a variety of rumors and speculation on this subject, however, discusses the different causes of death of the diplomat.

The author of the mentioned article in the Israeli publication says that the sudden death of Ambassador such a big country like China, is itself an event which will be ambiguous and different interpretations. Besides, it happened on the background of the very tense situation in the world associated with the pandemic coronavirus, and followed immediately after the visit of US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo. If to take into account information about the pressure that is now the United States has on Israel regarding the relationship of the country with China, all the rumors and theories of a possible conspiracy on the deliberate elimination of a Chinese diplomat can look quite reasonable.

In the article the Israeli newspaper said that the Ambassador of China in Israel, the Du Wei was appointed to this country recently. He arrived in the country in order to accept the position from his predecessor, and his arrival took place in the period when international flights to Israel from countries where there is an outbreak of the epidemic was limited. Accordingly, he immediately upon his arrival was quarantined.

In confirmation of the arguments mentioned studies, we can recall that the last visit of Chairman of the PRC in Israel was held recently, on 22 October last year. A senior representative of China held talks with Prime Minister Beniamin Netanyahu in tel Aviv, and the Prime Minister of Israel spoke at the meeting about “daily full strengthening of friendship” and “partnership” between the two countries. You can add that the trip was also to inform the leaders of the countries of the Middle East about the proposed Beijing draft regional and international cooperation “One belt and one road”.

As noted by the author of the said publication, immediately after the death of a Chinese diplomat emerged and a conspiracy theory against him, and at the same time grew even stronger negative reaction to the strengthening in Israel of the “Chinese presence” is, of course, accusations against China of “delivery” in the country coronavirus infection. It is worth noting that some commentators were inclined to describe the incident as the plot of a certain spy movie or detective series. At the same time, there were allegations and that the unexpected death of the Ambassador happened “just” due to the illness, caused by coronavirus infection.

Several commenters arguing about the possible causes of death of the diplomat, also remembered that before Du Wei held the position of Ambassador of China in Ukraine, and therefore, this fact could be somehow “throw a shadow” on his next mission to Israel. While reminiscing about various accusations Ukrainian officials to Russia, which was accused of organizing several killings on the territory of Ukraine. Not without mention of “no contest” in the end “killing” the well-known Russian journalist and writer Arkady Babchenko. Those who recall the probable connection of the death of the Ambassador with his Ukrainian past, hinted at the possibility of using different communication channels for the recruitment of persons-organizers and perpetrators of the murders in Ukraine, including for the failed assassination of Russian journalist. And further, in continuation of this discussion, talking about the possibility of further elimination involved in the recruitment of persons as bearers of “junk” for Russia information. However, this does not convincingly explain the willingness of the Russian security services to use all possible channels of communication is the Chinese diplomat, as well as the willingness in the future to eliminate him because of the fact that he “knew too much”. Moreover, it does not look logical in the current situation, when the relations of Russia and China consistently good.

However, “Ukrainian past,” a Chinese diplomat and a possible “Russian trace” — not only, as already mentioned, the version on the reasons for his mysterious sudden death. Some point to the visit to Israel of Secretary of state Mike Pompeo, held, as already mentioned, in just a few days before the Chinese diplomat was found dead in his home. Accordingly, point to the American Secretary of state and argue that he was also involved in the incident. Someone, on the contrary, accuse the Israeli secret service and now waiting for the official reaction of Beijing, which will undoubtedly require the Israeli authorities to immediately investigate the incident and punish the guilty, if any are found. The latter say that there are forces that are interested in creating tensions in relations between Israel and China. But someone, nevertheless, tend to associate the death of the diplomat with the most simple and natural causes — disease, caused by COVID-19.

According to reports in Arabic media, the body of a Chinese diplomat was discovered on the morning of last Sunday, in the house where lived the diplomat, located in the city of Herzliya, in the Northern part of the district of tel Aviv.

At the same time, the 12-th channel of the Israeli television, citing representatives of medicine and public health, said that according to preliminary data, the death of Du Wei had a violent nature — it happened in her sleep, of natural causes.
