Beijing, December 2 Foreign Ministry spokesman Hua Chunying said on the 2nd that some officials in the United States and Australia keep accusing China of lying fallacies of being very unreasonable and unqualified. I hope they can adhere to an objective and rational attitude, have self-knowledge and knowledge of people.
At the regular press conference on the same day, a reporter asked: Regarding the crimes committed by Australian soldiers in Afghanistan, Australian leaders said that their goal is to safeguard national values. Australia also pushed for people with the same values to come forward. A few hours ago, a deputy spokesman for the U.S. State Department claimed to support Australia, accusing China of “fabricating pictures” and “spreading false information”. The deputy spokesman also attacked China’s “human rights violations” in Xinjiang, and they have always advocated for insisting on defending human rights. How does China comment on their approach?
Hua Chunyu said that what is circulating on the Internet is not photos, not “fabricated photos”, but computer illustrations created by a young painter, based on the facts reported by the Australian media itself and released in the Australian Ministry of Defense investigation report. If this painting is beyond the stand of some people in Australia, the truth of the photos and videos you see on the Internet is even more creepy.
Regarding Australia’s claim that “the goal is to uphold national values”, Hua Chunying refuted: “Is the crimes committed by some Australian soldiers in Afghanistan that have been publicly disclosed in line with Australian values? Is it in line with Australian values that some Australian soldiers kill innocent people indiscriminately without allowing others to comment and criticize? Is it in line with Australian values to fabricate facts out of thin air, attack and slander others, and on the other hand, not allow others to comment on the bad things they have done? If you have done something wrong and bad, but refuse to accept criticism from others, or even make a rake and make trouble without reason, how can you make people believe that you really know your mistake and will really correct it?
She said that in fact, some people in the world have pointed out: What is the reason for their anger? Is it a photo? Of course not. What they are really annoyed with is how the Chinese people have the right to point out or comment on what they have done. They vigorously promote their values of “democracy, human rights and freedoms”, but what they do is either a blasphemy of democracy, human rights and freedoms, or a typical hypocrisy and double standard.
In answering questions on Xinjiang, Hua Chundi said that the so-called “human rights violations” or so-called “persecution of ethnic minorities” in Xinjiang are “century lies” fabricated by some extreme anti-China forces, and Australia and the United States play a very disgraceful role in it.
She said that a typical example is that the Australian Institute of Strategic Policy fabricates so-called “evidence” and throws sensational lies again and again, which has long been exposed by facts. According to Australian media reports, the U.S. State Department has funded 1.37 million Australian dollars for the Australian Institute of Strategic Policy in the past fiscal year, an increase of 367% year-on-year. The money is all used for anti-China projects.
