On May 12, in response to a question from a reporter from the Punch News, “U.S. lawmakers want to set up 56 special agents to investigate spying and stealing activities by the Chinese Communist Party at U.S. universities,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying surprisingly replied, “That’s an understatement… There should be 300,000 FBI agents”. Overseas netizens worryingly said, “It’s bad luck for Chinese people around the world? “
On May 12, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying hosted a regular press conference. The surging news reporter asked, “A few days ago, the U.S. Republican congressmen introduced a bill to create 56 new Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agent positions specifically to investigate espionage and theft activities by Chinese (Communist) countries at U.S. universities. What does the Foreign Ministry have to say about this? “
Hua Chunying said, “I have also seen this report, indeed U.S. lawmakers often have all kinds of strange arguments or proposals, you just mentioned that Republican lawmakers proposed to create 56 FBI positions specifically to monitor the activities of Chinese students in U.S. universities, right? I think that’s probably an underestimate. Isn’t it true that there were 300,000 to 300,000 Chinese students in the U.S. in previous years, and he should have proposed the creation of 300,000 FBI positions or at least 150,000, incidentally, to solve the domestic employment problem in the U.S.”
However, overseas netizens, who are more aware of the Western way of thinking, immediately said with concern, “Is it bad luck for Chinese people around the world?” Some of them said, “I hope the Chinese people around the world won’t be in trouble?”
One user said, “Americans should take her words seriously!”
Another user said, “I believe she is not exaggerating. What she meant was ‘you can’t catch it all’.”
One user said, “I hope the global Chinese people won’t make a fool of themselves.”
Another user said, “Is it bad luck for Chinese people around the world? It’s a fire at the city gate and a fish in the pond!”
Hu Xijin’s Weibo comment on 1,000 nuclear bombs was met with demands from the US for an explanation
On May 8, 2020, Hu Xijin claimed on his Weibo account that China needed to expand its nuclear warheads to 1,000 in a short period of time, including at least 100 Dongfeng-41 strategic missiles to strike the United States, a provocative statement.
As the editor-in-chief of the Chinese Communist Party’s mouthpiece media, Hu Xijin’s comments have aroused great concern.
On June 30, the Conference on Disarmament was held in Geneva. At the conference, U.S. Disarmament Ambassador Wood criticized the Chinese Communist Party’s nuclear arms control policy, saying that it poses a major threat to world peace and security. At that time, Disarmament Ambassador Wood quoted Hu Xijin’s remarks and demanded an explanation from the Chinese Communist Party.
