In recent days, communiqués issued by the G-7 and NATO summits have criticized a number of Chinese policies and focused on peace in the Taiwan Strait. Yu Maochun, chief China policy adviser to former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, pointed out that this is a continuation of the “righting of the ship” on China policy under President Trump. In addition, he said, China has turned the epidemic into an opportunity to project “strong Communist leadership,” leaving public health and the welfare of the world’s people behind, covering up the truth about the epidemic and brutally suppressing dissidents, and the U.S. is doing its best to investigate the truth.
Yu Maochun, former chief advisor to the U.S. Secretary of State on China policy, was a guest on Radio Free Asia’s “Asia Wants to Talk” talk show on the 17th, and was asked bluntly by host Dai Zhongren: “When (Trump) started the trade war, was the goal to bring Xi Jinping down?” Yu Maochun said, “No! Our purpose is to defend the security of the United States and to promote the further development of democracy in the United States without the influence of the Chinese Communist Party, because the United States was actually facing a great challenge and crisis when Trump took office.” ‘
The G-7 summit, led by the United States, and the NATO summit, both issued joint statements this week criticizing China’s crackdown on human rights issues such as Hong Kong and Xinjiang, and expressing concern about security in the Taiwan Strait.
Trump Sends U.S. Ship Across Taiwan Strait, Brings Allies to Follow
Yu Maochun pointed out that the Chinese Communist Party is very concerned about the passage of U.S. Navy warships through the Taiwan Strait, which is a red line for the Chinese Communist Party. The former President Trump regularly sends U.S. warships across the Taiwan Strait, breaking the custom that U.S. warships do not cross the Taiwan Strait after the 1970s, when President Nixon canceled the Seventh Fleet cruise, internationalizing the Taiwan Strait and providing very good support and protection to Taiwan, including Canada, Germany, Japan and other allies to follow up.
Yu Maochun said that in the past, the European Union wanted to take a middle course, and to do business with China, but also to criticize China’s human rights issues, which is not going to work. The Trump administration spent a lot of effort at the time trying to convince its allies to recognize the nature of the Chinese Communist Party, but there were very many conflicts with the EU’s policy toward China. Trump’s initial proposal to “set things right” with regard to the perception of the CCP is now being continued in the G-7 and NATO.
Biden recently ordered a 90-day investigation into the origin of the new coronavirus, and the G-7 summit and NATO have followed suit, demanding accountability. Yu Maochun pointed out that China’s research on viruses is like a great leap forward like a swarm, but many Chinese experts who know the details are worried about China’s biosecurity. They have so many viruses, but they don’t manage them well. The Sars virus has leaked out of laboratories, and there is a lot of evidence, but it can’t be said publicly. If we are to get to the bottom of the virus leak, the Chinese government must be fully open and honest about the investigation. But the way the Chinese Communist Party is now “covering up” is like having no evidence here, and we have a lot of circumstantial evidence. The U.S. side has been tracking the epidemic since 15 years ago and will announce it in due course.
If Trump comes up with hard evidence of virus traceability during his presidency, the U.S. mainstream media may not pick up on it
The company’s main goal is to provide a solution to the problem. The company’s main goal is to provide the best possible service to its customers. The main thing is that Trump is no longer in power, then you can exclude the obstacles caused by political differences. The U.S. intelligence community has collected a lot of evidence, which now needs to be integrated and consolidated, and can be cross-referenced through reasoning to reach accurate conclusions. Basically, scientific inferences have been made, such as the characteristics of the virus, the trajectory of the virus launch, there have been many in-depth studies, as well as biostatistics have also made great strides. In addition to virus traceability, more importantly, the Chinese government, from Xi Jinping to the Wuhan laboratory, must be held accountable for covering up and lying about the epidemic, which caused a global disaster and damage.
The former head of the political team of Taiwan’s representative office in the United States, Chiu Yee-cheung, also mentioned in the program “Asia Very Wanted” that it is not the United States or other countries that have changed, it is China that has changed. Tsai Ing-wen took office in 2016 with a very moderate, non-provocative, and peaceful cross-strait policy with China, but how did China respond? Everyone can see it.
China is forcing the international community to choose sides and is not happy to see the internationalization of Taiwan issues
Zhao Yixiang said: “The outside world has an imagination that the United States is forcing everyone to choose sides, or that Taiwan itself is choosing sides. But I think it is actually China that is forcing everyone to choose a side, China is forcing the international community to make a value choice.”
As for whether internationalization of the Taiwan Strait issue is the best guarantee for security in the Taiwan Strait? Zhao Yixiang believes that the Taiwan Strait will be more stable as a result: “International attention to the Taiwan Strait issue is the last thing China would like to see, and we can imagine that China would like to treat the Taiwan Strait issue as a regional issue, or even an internal affairs issue, so ‘low profile’, ‘quiet’, ‘not to draw attention to the issue’. ‘ and ‘not drawing attention to it’ should be the core of China’s handling of the Taiwan issue.”
Yu Mao-chun: Taiwan’s diplomats should give study sessions to CCP diplomats
Yu Maochun said that Taiwan’s diplomats are not like China’s “war wolves” but “comrades in arms,” and are professional and trustworthy. It is very important to learn how to deal with the U.S. government and how to gain the trust of the top echelons of the U.S. government. I deal with Chinese diplomats very headache, the Chinese Embassy often sent people to talk to me, are some official, no sincerity, no substantive meaning, are talking about some big words, set words, talk about the principle of things, and always blame the United States, everything is the fault of the United States. “
Zhao Yixiang, on the other hand, said that Taiwan and the United States enjoy common values and common interests, feel the same about many things, communication is natural, easy and smooth, as for the Chinese diplomats refused to interact with Taiwan.
Chiu Yee-cheung said: “I have not had contact with Chinese diplomats, even to the extent that I used to go to international conferences with our foreign ministry chief, Chinese diplomats were present, and when we approached, the Chinese diplomats just stood up and left, walked away, resulting in no way for us to interact with Chinese diplomats. ”
