Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said Mr. Pompeo’s wide-ranging critique “maliciously attacked” the Communist Party and government and was an attempt to “drive a wedge between the [Communist Party of China] and the Chinese people and deliberately distorted and slandered China’s domestic and foreign policy.”
Q: US Secretary of State Pompeo delivered a speech at the Hudson Institute in New York on October 30, saying that the Chinese Communist Party is hostile to the United States and American values, posing challenges to the US and the world. What’s your comment?
Spokesman Geng Shuang: Mr. Pompeo’s speech maliciously attacked the Communist Party of China and the Chinese government, tried to drive a wedge between the CPC and the Chinese people and deliberately distorted and slandered China’s domestic and foreign policy. It fully exposes the deep-seated political prejudice and dark anti-communist mindset of a handful of American politicians. Such remarks are by no means an embodiment of confidence and strength, but rather reveal fear and arrogance.
Under the leadership of the CPC, China has made remarkable achievements and made more and more friends over the past seven decades since the founding of the New China. The Chinese people will firmly forge ahead along the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics to new glories. Good prevails over evil. Any attempt to vilify China and obstruct its steady development is futile and doomed to fail.
The past and reality has proven that China and the US stand to gain from cooperation and lose from confrontation. Mutual respect and seeking common ground while shelving differences is the right way for countries to get along. We urge US officials to reflect upon and correct their wrongdoing, and stop saying or doing things that harm China-US relations. They should meet us halfway, and following the principle and direction set by the two heads of state, manage differences on the basis of mutual respect, expand mutually-beneficial cooperation, and advance China-US relations featuring coordination, cooperation and stability.
US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo’s clear expression of US stance on China-US relations has opened up a new chapter on the global fight against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
With his latest speech, the Secretary of State has set out an ambitious new U.S. foreign policy toward China, one that sees the ruling Communist Party as a national security threat and the force behind Beijing’s drive for global hegemony, as Bill Gertz has reported with the Washington Times on Friday.
On his live-broadcast on October 18, CCP killer Guo Wengui highlighted two conditions for the Pandora Box to open: first, an official announcement from the US government that the Chinese people are the friends of the United States while the CCP must be eliminated; second, the US and its allies start to take actions to freeze or confiscate the assets of the CCP leadership.
Following Pompeo’s speech, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has doubled down over China’s treatment of Xinjiang Uighurs.
“We have raised these issues as great human rights abuses and concerns,” Mr Morrison told 3AW radio on Friday.
“We’ve done it directly – we haven’t just done it in public – we’ve always raised these issues consistently, and the foreign minister has done this on every occasion she’s had,” Scott Morrison added.
It is expected that more western allies will join the US to heat up the issue and follow up their stance with concrete actions.
Guo Wengui said earlier at the Himalayas Embassy in New York, “The Pandora box will soon be opened. It will take place any moment!”
The CCP’s blockchain initiative and its plan for a digital currency to challenge the US dollar will open the door to its own burial.
Everything is just the beginning.
