 Trump plans to blacklist 89 more Chinese enterprises, and the Ministry of foreign affairs has just responded


It is reported that the open sky treaty was signed in 1992 and entered into force in 2002. Participating countries of the Treaty can conduct unarmed aerial reconnaissance of each others territory according to the provisions. 35 countries, including the United States and Russia, have signed the treaty. The treaty is an important confidence building measure after the end of the cold war, which helps to enhance transparency and reduce the risk of conflict.

Trump said in May that Moscow had not complied with the treatys commitments and said it would formally withdraw from the treaty in six months. According to reports, the US State Department said in a statement on Sunday that the withdrawal of the United States will take effect on November 22, and the United States is no longer a party to the open sky treaty.

In response, the Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement on the same day, saying that the withdrawal of the United States from the open sky treaty is not conducive to the security of Europe, nor to the security of the United States itself and its allies. Russia will pay close attention to and analyze the words and deeds of other members of the treaty, and make relevant decisions based on the security interests of Russia and its allies.

Russia: US approach is not conducive to its own and regional security

The statement said that the US sides previous accusations about Russias violation of the open sky treaty are groundless. Just as the US side has done in other arms control treaties, the US sides violation of the open sky treaty is an intentional act. The US choice has not benefited the security of Europe, the United States and its allies. Russia hopes that the existing member states of the open sky treaty can strictly perform their duties, ensure that their territory is subject to reconnaissance and will not transfer relevant information of their reconnaissance flights to third-party countries that are not members of the treaty. Russia is observing whether the words and deeds of other members of the treaty are consistent and will make appropriate decisions based on the security interests of Russia and its allies.

On the same day, Peskov, the press secretary of the Russian President, expressed regret for the formal withdrawal of the United States from the open sky treaty, believing that the withdrawal of the United States made the treaty more infeasible.

Over the past few months, Russia has repeatedly called for equal dialogue on the open sky treaty, but the US side seems to have decided to withdraw and has never responded positively.

On December 12, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stressed that Russia asked other contracting countries to promise that after the United States withdrew from the treaty, Russia would still be allowed to fly over the US bases in Europe.

The open sky treaty was signed in 1992 and entered into force in 2002. The main content of the treaty stipulates that States parties may conduct unarmed aerial reconnaissance on each others territory in accordance with the provisions, so as to check their implementation of the international arms control treaty. The treaty is an important confidence building measure after the end of the cold war, which helps to enhance military transparency and reduce the risk of conflict. The United States, Russia and most NATO countries signed the treaty.

Many European countries have expressed regret for the US move

What is the impact of US withdrawal from the open sky treaty

Experts said that the withdrawal of the United States from the open sky treaty is in fact in line with the trump administrations withdrawal from the group. In order to strengthen its eastward expansion of NATO, especially in Eastern Europe, the United States found an excuse to say that it was violated by Russia, so it withdrew. In short, its withdrawal from the treaty is a very bullying way to squeeze Russia.

Such a confrontation between NATO and Russia is exacerbated by the withdrawal. In fact, Russia is willing to be transparent, but the United States has now withdrawn alone, so it has become a situation in which both sides do not know each others situation, which may increase friction or antagonism between the two sides.

In fact, before leaving the open sky treaty, the United States has withdrawn from several agreements and treaties aimed at maintaining global security and stability. Despite the widespread criticism of the international community, the United States still has its own way.

Lets take a look at the number of groups that Trumps government has retreated from over the years: January 23, 2017, trans Pacific Partnership Agreement, June 1, 2017, Paris climate change agreement, October 12, 2017, UNESCO, Global Compact on migration, May 8, 2018, Iran nuclear agreement, June 19, 2018, United Nations Human Rights Council, and Vienna Convention on diplomatic relations on October 3, 2018 18.10.17 withdrawal from the Universal Postal Union (the organizations international postal tariff regulations hurt American enterprises) on August 2, 2019, Secretary of state pompeio issued a statement saying that the United States officially withdrew from the China Missile Treaty on July 6, 2020, and announced its withdrawal from the World Health Organization (who) on November 22, 2020 The government threatened South Korea to terminate the US ROK free trade agreement; in August 2018, it threatened to withdraw from NAFTA, forcing Canada and Mexico to negotiate with the United States separately; since 2018, it has repeatedly threatened to withdraw from the WTO.

Will Biden join Trumps group back?

Although trump has not admitted that he won the U.S. election in 2020, Biden seems to be ready to add back the group that trump has dropped after taking office.

In addition, Biden announced in his victory speech on the 7th that he would build a new epidemic response team composed of medical experts on the first day of his term to deal with the new epidemic.

Washington Post said that during the campaign, Biden repeatedly promised that he would overturn Trumps retreat decision on his first day in office.

The trump administration plans to blacklist 89 more Chinese enterprises

On November 23, local time, a draft list released by Reuters showed that the trump government was about to announce that it would list 89 enterprises involved in Chinas aerospace and other fields as related to military activities and restrict their purchase of a series of US goods and technologies.

According to reports, the list is included in a draft regulation that lists some Chinese and Russian companies as so-called military end users identified by the United States, which means that U.S. suppliers must apply for licenses to sell a large number of commercial products to these companies. According to the report, comactd, AVIC and 10 related entities appeared on the list.

Reuters said the list was compiled by the U.S. Department of Commerce, but a Commerce Department spokesman declined to comment. The report said that once the list is released, it will further aggravate Sino US trade tensions and cause direct damage to American companies that sell civil aviation parts to China.

Earlier, Reuters quoted a source on the 21st that Washington was ready to put four more Chinese enterprises on the Pentagon blacklist to restrict their access to US investors because these enterprises are supported by the Chinese military.. It is reported that if the decision is officially announced, the number of Chinese enterprises affected will increase to 35, including Hikvision, China Telecom, China Mobile and other industry giants.

A reporter asked, according to a US draft list disclosed by the media, the trump government is about to announce that 89 Chinese enterprises are related to the military and will restrict them from purchasing a series of us products and technologies. What is Chinas comment on this? Zhao Lijian said that China firmly opposes the US sides groundless crackdown on Chinese enterprises, and has repeatedly expressed its solemn position on this issue. What the United States has done seriously violates the market competition principles and international economic and trade rules that the United States has always boasted, and will certainly damage the national interests and self-image of the United States. Chinese enterprises always adhere to the legal and compliance operation, and strictly abide by the laws and regulations of various countries, including the United States law, in the international operation. The US side should stop generalizing the concept of national security and crack down on the wrong behavior of foreign enterprises. Source: Zhong Qiming, editor in charge of China fund daily_ NF5619
