You Wenze, the spokesperson of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National People’s Congress of China (NPCC) said on December 21 that the U.S. has chosen to ignore China’s solemn stance, and included many negative clauses involving Taiwan, Hong Kong and Xinjiang in its 2020 National Defense Authorization Act. These clauses disregard the facts, are full of prejudice, and grossly interfere in China’s internal affairs.
” We express our strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition to this” said You. The spokesman emphasized that the Taiwan-related content of the bill seriously violated the one-China principle and the provisions of the three Sino-US joint communiqués and seriously undermined Sino-US relations and peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.
“The Taiwan issue is China’s internal affairs, and no outside interference is allowed. A series of violent crimes endangering public safety and order in Hong Kong have seriously challenged the bottom line of the rule of law and the principle of one country, two systems. Violence is violence, and no appeal can be an excuse for extreme violence.”
The US plan to interfere in other’s domestic affairs under the guise of so-called democracy and human rights will never succeed. Xinjiang-related issues are not at all human rights, ethnic, and religious issues, but anti-terrorist and depolarization issues. The United States is also a victim of terrorism and should support China’s counter-terrorism measures instead of discrediting China’s efforts to counter terrorism and depolarization.
The spokesman said that we strongly urge the United States to abandon the Cold War mentality and hegemonic logic, stop interfering in China’s internal affairs, and immediately take effective measures to eliminate the negative effects caused by it and take practical actions to maintain the overall situation of Sino-US relations.
