The foreign ministry strongly condemned the US passing the so-called Xinjiang related bill: deliberately slandering the human rights situation in Xinjiang, China, which is a serious violation of international law! (source: video synthesis)
On December 4, foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying held a regular press conference. A reporter asked, how do you think about the recent series of actions of the United States on issues involving Hong Kong and Xinjiang? Is this related to economic and trade issues?
Hua Chunying said that you should ask American officials what they think and plan to do. Chinas policy has always been consistent, clear and to the point. We have a consistent position on economic and trade issues. We believe that only in the spirit of equality and mutual respect can we reach a mutually beneficial and mutually acceptable agreement, which is lasting and in line with the common interests of the two peoples.
Hua Chunying further said that for human rights issues, Hong Kong related issues and Xinjiang related issues, we have repeatedly stated the solemn position of the Chinese government. No one should underestimate the determination and ability of the Chinese government to safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests. When you mention this series of problems, I also notice that the American media, let alone the Chinese media, have made a lot of comments and ideas on it recently. We can no longer see what the US is doing now. We all hope and call on us to take more drastic action to resolutely oppose it. Please rest assured that as I said just now, the Chinese government is determined and fully capable of safeguarding our sovereignty, security and development interests. Anyone who wants to interfere with and restrain Chinas development and growth through the Hong Kong and Xinjiang related issues can only be wishful thinking.
