Ahead of the 2+2 talks between the United States and China, today (15) Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian called out the United States for being a “genuine eavesdropping empire, a secrecy empire, and a hacker empire” and for interfering in the internal affairs of a few countries, among other things.
Today, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan departed for a visit to Japan and South Korea, followed by talks in Alaska with Communist Party Foreign Affairs Minister Yang Jiechi and Foreign Minister Wang Yi. Zhao Lijian’s performance drew attention from the outside world.
This is the latest jump by the Chinese Communist Party‘s war wolves after the G7 and EU issued a joint statement last Friday (12) condemning the Chinese Communist Party for undermining Hong Kong‘s electoral system, and the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued a statement naming huawei and five other Chinese companies on its blacklist.
FCC names Huawei and others on blacklist Zhao Lijian blasts U.S.
At today’s regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Communist Party of China, Zhao Lijian, when asked about the FCC-related issues, expressed his anger that the U.S. approach has no basis in fact and is unjustified. He said the U.S. has used its advanced technology advantage to carry out massive and indiscriminate wiretapping of other countries around the world, including its allies, by installing backdoors and other means.
“The U.S. is a genuine eavesdropping empire, a secret stealing empire and a hacking (hacking) empire. U.S. practices seriously undermine and threaten the security of other countries,” Cho said.
Earlier, the FCC released a statement on Friday (12) naming five Chinese companies – Huawei, ZTE, Hynetech, Hikvision and Dahua – all of which were blacklisted for producing telecommunications equipment and services that would pose a risk to U.S. national security and citizens.
Huawei was blacklisted during the term of former U.S. President Donald Trump on the grounds of endangering national security. The Biden administration has also continued to take a tough stance since taking office.
The Reuters news agency reported that Biden will also recently amend the license for enterprises to sell items to Huawei, once determined, will likely lead to the previous contract is invalid, the supplier can no longer ship to Huawei in accordance with the contract, which means that the Biden Administration‘s attitude toward shipments to Huawei has become tougher.
The international community has been worried about Huawei’s role as a Communist spy overseas, and the war wolves in the Chinese Foreign Ministry have never been able to avoid the question of whether Chinese companies such as Huawei must act in accordance with the will of the Chinese Communist Party, the Party? to allay international concerns about security.
China’s National People’s Congress condemned for amending Hong Kong’s electoral system Zhao Lijian jumped to his feet: interference in internal affairs
Zhao Lijian also said at a press conference today (15), “Recently a few countries maligned the decision of the Chinese National People’s Congress on improving the electoral system of the Hong Kong SAR, violently interfering in the affairs of Hong Kong and China’s internal affairs. China expresses its strong dissatisfaction and resolute opposition”.
He said Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China, and the HKSAR’s electoral system is China’s local electoral system, and how it is designed, developed and improved is entirely a matter of China’s internal affairs.
Last week, the Chinese Communist Party’s National People’s Congress amended Hong Kong’s electoral system, causing a strong international backlash. The Group of Seven (G7) and the European Union issued a joint statement on Friday (12) condemning China’s actions as eroding the democratic elements of Hong Kong’s electoral system and undermining Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy under “one country, two systems.
On Saturday, British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said in a statement that Beijing was “in further breach of the legally binding Sino-British Joint Declaration. “Britain will continue to defend the people of Hong Kong. China (the Chinese Communist Party) must act in accordance with its legal obligations and respect the fundamental rights and freedoms of Hong Kong.”
U.S. Secretary of State John Blinken also issued a statement condemning the Chinese Communist Party, saying it was an ongoing attack on Hong Kong’s democracy and a direct assault on Hong Kong’s autonomy. He called on Beijing to live up to its international obligations and commitments and to act in accordance with Hong Kong’s Basic Law.
The Sino-British Joint Declaration and the Basic Law are both pledges made by the Chinese Communist Party to the international community that “one country, two systems” and “Hong Kong people ruling Hong Kong” would remain unchanged for 50 years, and now the Chinese Communist Party should be sanctioned.
The Chinese Communist Party’s war wolves have attracted the revulsion of the United States to strengthen the alliance of countermeasures
In response to the Chinese Communist War Wolf, the United States recently led a coalition of democratic countries to counteract it.
Today, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Foreign Minister Blinken arrived in Japan on a special plane and held a “2+2 meeting” on the 16th, which is expected to touch on issues such as confirming the posture of joint confrontation with the Chinese Communist Party.
The two men jointly wrote to the U.S. media today that the trip aims to reinvigorate U.S. relations with friends and partners; once allies are united, the counterforcements against Chinese Communist provocations and threats will be stronger.
“China (CCP) violates human rights in Xinjiang and Tibet, systematically encroaches on Hong Kong’s autonomy, covertly undermines Taiwan‘s democracy, and asserts maritime rights to the South China Sea, thus violating international law. Together, we will be able to hold China (CCP) accountable.” The two men wrote.
After the talks in Japan, the two will also travel to South Korea for 2+2 talks before Austin flies to India and Blinken and U.S. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan return to Alaska for 2+2 talks with Communist Party State Councilor Yang Jiechi and Foreign Minister Wang Yi.
Last Friday (12), the leaders of the United States, Australia, India and Japan held “quadripartite talks” and agreed to provide 1 billion doses of the new crown vaccine to most of Asia by the end of 2022. The move is seen as a counterweight to the influence of the Chinese Communist Party’s “vaccine diplomacy.
“We are committed to delivering one billion doses of vaccine,” Sullivan said after the summit, “with Indian manufacturing, U.S. technology, Japanese and U.S. financing, and Australian logistics …… “We recommit ourselves to ensuring that our region is governed by international law and committed to upholding universal values free from coercion,” Biden also said in a statement.”
Michael Green, senior vice president at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), told Voice of America that this is “a fundamental repulse to the strong war-wolf style of vaccine diplomacy that China [the Chinese Communist Party] has introduced.”
The Chinese Communist Party’s war-wolf model of diplomacy is widely resented in the West. The Wall Street Journal reported last week that a series of recent polls show that the U.S. public’s view of China (CCP) is at its most negative level ever, and indicate growing support for the Biden administration to take a tougher stance against Beijing to influence its behavior.
