China presents grievances, demands to post-Trump US administration

(TibetanReview.net, Feb03’21) – China has on Feb 1 called on US President Joe Biden to abandon the “misguided policies” of his predecessor Donald Trump, with its foreign policy chief Yang Jiechi drawing a “red line that must not be crossed”.

Speaking at a virtual forum hosted by the New York-based National Committee on US-China Relations, viewed favorably by Beijing, Yang has demanded that the US stop interference in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Tibet, or Xinjiang province.

“For the past few years, the Trump administration adopted misguided policies against China, plunging the relationship into its most difficult period since the establishment of diplomatic ties,” Yang has said.

And presenting a list of grievances, he wanted the new US administration to “remove the stumbling blocks to people-to-people exchanges, like harassing Chinese students, restricting Chinese media outlets, shutting down Confucius Institutes and suppressing Chinese companies.”

He called these policy measures “not only wrong but also unpopular.”

He has signaled a total rejection of the human rights concerns expressed by the United States, other Western powers, and human rights groups, warning that China’s crackdown on democracy in Hong Kong, its growing aggression toward Taiwan, its brutal occupation of Tibet, and its vicious oppression of the Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang province are on the far side of a “red line that must not be crossed,” noted the breitbart.com Feb 2.

Yang has insisted that the ruling Communist Party, which does not have to face any election go prove its legitimacy, had the “wholehearted support” of the Chinese people.

Yang is a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and director of the Office of the Central Commission for Foreign Affairs. He was “so far the most senior Chinese official to openly send a message to the US since Biden took office on Jan 20,” noted China’s official globaltimes.cn Feb 2.

It said Yang mentioned the word “cooperation” 24 times, a theme he wanted to highlight.

It also said Yang reaffirmed China’s bottom lines on Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the two autonomous regions of Xinjiang and Tibet, and urged the US to stop its attempts to hold back China’s development by meddling in China’s internal affairs.
