As shown in the figure below, Marshall Billingsley, the US Special Representative for arms control, posted a picture of China on his personal social account.
This, of course, is obvious. As early as June 9, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying made it clear that China has clarified its position many times, and China has no intention of participating in the so-called trilateral arms control negotiations between China, the United States and Russia , which is very clear.
At that time, Hua Chunying also said, we have noticed that the United States has repeatedly talked about China on the extension of the Treaty on measures to further reduce and limit strategic offensive weapons between the United States and Russia, which is a consistent tactic of the United States to shirk its responsibility to other countries.
But Billingsley of the US side had already started his touch porcelain performance at that time. He first announced in a June 10 post that although China would not come, the negotiation seat in Vienna will still wait for China, thus setting up a target of Chinas participation.
Now, with todays U.S. - Russian talks, the U.S. governments arms control representative has directed himself to shoot at the target he made up himself before, posting a complaint that we dont come to the meeting, and then slandering us as hiding behind the long city secretly developing nuclear weapons.
FU Cong, director of the arms control department of the Chinese foreign ministry, posted a message on Billingsleys website and said: what a strange scene! Put the Chinese flag on the negotiation table without the consent of China How much more low can you have?
Chen Weihua, President of China Dailys European Union branch, also left a message criticizing Billingsleys remarks to the effect that the United States has withdrawn from a large number of international treaties in recent years, which has no credibility, and the number of Chinese nuclear weapons is not the same as that of the United States and Russia, so unless the United States agrees to reduce the number of nuclear weapons to that of China, China is required to participate in the talks Judgment is bullshit.
Even a Reuters reporter couldnt go on, saying the photos released by Billingsley, the US arms control representative, were groundless and extremely misleading..
However, anti Chinese elements outside China are trying their best to help the U.S. government and follow the U.S. government to smear China. A reporter from VOA, the official publicity media of the United States, also claimed absurdly in Chinese that officials of the State Department of the United States had confirmed that China had not participated in the disarmament negotiations held in Vienna, but was that how it was used?
Finally, according to Reuters, a group of photos released by Russian officials after the U.S. - Russian talks showed that the photos of the Chinese flag posted by Billingsley had disappeared during the talks.
In response, the military control department of the Ministry of foreign affairs quoted Russian media in its official account on the microblog platform as saying that this was because the US approach was opposed by Russian personnel and the Chinese flag was removed. But before withdrawing, the US side took the photo of chicken thief.
