Chinese Foreign Minister denounces American anti-China policyMarch 30, 2023
Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang slammed the US for its policy against China at the recent press conference held after the First Session of the 14th National People’s Congress.
Concerning the incident of shooting down the Chinese balloon, he said that it was an inevitable and unexpected accident but the US engineered a diplomatic crisis by relying on the abuse of force in opposition to the spirit of international law and international practices. Then he criticized the US for its policy against China, saying that it has completely deviated from the normal track, both rational and sound.
He continued that what the US is saying about the “competition” with China is, in essence, an all-out containment and suppression of China and that “reinforcement of guardrails” and “non-collision” referred to by the US in the Sino-US relations means that China should not react to the violence or abusive language, which is impossible for China. He warned that it is inevitable for the Sino-US relations to fall into collision and confrontation if the US persists in rushing along the wrong track in a frenzied manner.
It can be seen that his above remarks have taken into consideration an all-out pressure of the US against China, which is getting much more serious nowadays.
This year alone, the US, together with the Netherlands and Japan, agreed on restricting the export of advanced semiconductor-making equipment to China. It also decided to sell US$619 million worth of arms to Taiwan and imposed sanctions on 28 Chinese entities.
In addition, the US House of Representatives is working on the bill on granting the US president the right to ban the use of TikTok, the Chinese SNS application, and the US House Select Committee on Strategic Competition between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party has organized a hearing called “Threat to the US by the Chinese Communist Party”. Like this, the anti-China pressure by the US is escalating.
The international public opinion is that the Sino-US relations get more strained after the shooting down of the Chinese balloon by the US and the rift in their relations will grow bigger.
