Recently, anti china clouds are gathering over Washington. Some American politicians, out of shifting domestic contradictions and the need of election politics, launched crazy attacks on China and provoked China in all aspects, including politics, economy, diplomacy, military affairs, ideology, etc., to the point of hysteria. As a part of their overall Anti China action, the US side, citing the so-called protection of US intellectual property rights and American private information, brazenly demanded that China close its Consulate General in Houston within three days. This is a serious violation of international law, the basic norms of international relations and the relevant provisions of Sino US Consular treaties, which can be called a very bad political provocation. Just as they had planted a scam on the origin of the new coronavirus and other issues, this time, the US politicians also failed to provide evidence for the so-called excuse of closing the Chinese Consulate General in Houston. It can be said that if you want to add a crime, you have no reason to worry about it, which has been strongly condemned by the international community.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson zaharova
Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Zakharova said on the 23rd that the U.S. governments practice runs counter to the spirit of the rule of law that it has advocated for many years. Jon Taylor, a political science professor at the University of Texas at San Antonio, said that the U.S. approach is intended to divert public attention from the governments failure to deal with the epidemic and the economic downturn, highlighting the cold war thinking of the US government, which is self deception.
The relationship between nations lies in the affinity between the people. A countrys embassies and consulates abroad represent its sovereignty and dignity, and are also bridges to promote bilateral official and non-governmental exchanges. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States, Chinese embassies and consulates in the United States have always performed their duties in the United States in accordance with the provisions of the Vienna Convention on diplomatic relations and the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations. As the first Chinese Consulate General in the United States, the Chinese Consulate General in Houston has always abided by international and local laws, and has done a lot of friendly work to promote mutual understanding and cooperation in various fields between China and the United States, which has been fully affirmed by the American society.
Nowadays, American politicians have outspoken their black hands on such a legally compliant embassy and consulate, and even clamour that it is possible to order the closure of more Chinese consulates in the United States, so that the world can see that under the crazy manipulation of some American politicians with extreme ideological prejudice and cold war mentality, the national interests of the United States have been kidnapped by political self-interest and the bridge of friendship between the two peoples Liang is being demolished by force, and personnel exchanges in various fields are encountering unprecedented resistance.
For example, Chinese students studying in the United States have been intimidated, interrogated and even detained by the United States without any reason; some Chinese scholars have been cancelled visa restrictions; Chinese media organizations in the United States have been labeled as diplomatic missions, and Chinese journalists have been unreasonably expelled and suppressed; the United States has also set restrictions on Chinese diplomats in the United States for many times, illegally tearing down Chinese diplomatic bags and confiscating Chinese official supplies All this shows that the specter of McCarthyism that shrouded the United States more than half a century ago is resurrecting. American politicians who regard China as the enemy for the sake of political self-interest are the culprits that have brought Sino US relations to the freezing point since the establishment of diplomatic relations. In this regard, Harvard University Professor Fu Gaoyi pointed out a few days ago that the U.S. China policy and political speech are mainly dominated by officials who know little about Chinas affairs. It is not in the interests of the United States to turn the Chinese people into enemies, and the United States needs to fundamentally reflect on its policies..
As a peace loving country, China has always viewed Sino US relations from a strategic and long-term perspective. It has always advocated properly managing and handling differences in a constructive way, and has no intention of fighting a new cold war with the United States. Even at a time when Sino US relations are facing unprecedented difficulties, Chinese officials and people are still putting forward rational plans for the turnaround of bilateral relations. This is because China is well aware that the healthy and stable development of Sino US relations is not only in the interests of China and the United States, but also conducive to world peace and stability. However, Chinas insistence on peaceful development does not mean that it will swallow the bitter fruit harming sovereignty, security and development interests. This time, taking reciprocal countermeasures against the US sides closure of the Chinese Consulate General in Houston has released a clear message: the Chinese people are not afraid of any trouble, do not believe in evil or evil, and are determined to safeguard their legitimate rights and interests.
At present, China US relations are facing the most serious challenge since the establishment of diplomatic relations under the attack of politicians in Washington. Cooperation is the only correct choice. This is a summary of history and should be a guide for the future. I would like to advise those American politicians who are crazy about reversing history to step on the brake as soon as possible. If they insist on going to the black road, they will be resolutely attacked by China and rejected by the whole world!
