December 10 The U.S. government recently issued new regulations to tighten the visa policy for members of the Communist Party of China and their families to the United States, once again openly inciting ideological confrontation and wantonly poisoning Sino-US relations. This hysterical political bullying further exposes the sinister intention of some extreme anti-China forces in the United States to kidnap the relations between the two countries in order to seize their own self-interest.
As we all know, China never interferes in the internal affairs of the United States, never exports the development model to the outside world, and never engages in ideological confrontation. However, some American politicians are always sparing no effort to demonize China, maliciously attack the Communist Party of China, provoke the relationship between China’s ruling party and the Chinese people, politicize and weaponize ideological differences, and attempt to revive the ghost of McCarthyism.
Ge Laiyi, an expert on China at the U.S. Center for Strategic and International Studies, believes that if the purpose of the visa restriction is to reduce Chinese support for the Communist Party of China, the effect may be counterproductive.
Recently, Pompeo and a small group of anti-China politicians in the United States have staged “the last madness” and frequently attacked China. They unfoundedly accused China of formulating and implementing the Hong Kong National Security Law in accordance with the law, claiming to impose so-called sanctions on the vice chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress of China. They fabricated false news about so-called “forced labor” to prohibit the import of Xinjiang cotton and maliciously restrict the suppression of relevant Chinese enterprises.
U.S. anti-China politicians continue to collide with the bottom line of Sino-US relations on many issues involving China’s core interests and major concerns. First, they “dig holes” for the next government to deal with China relations, and second, to obtain political capital for themselves.
In the face of the crazy actions of a small group of anti-China politicians in the United States, more and more insightful people have a rational voice. Former U.S. Secretary of State Kissinger recently called on the next U.S. government to repair communication channels with China as soon as possible, saying that “it is necessary to avoid [the situation] turning into conflict and hopes to try to reach some cooperation”.
Richard Haas, president of the American Institute of Foreign Affairs, also believes that “the United States and China need to establish rules and identify possible areas where cooperation can be maintained.”
More than 40 years ago, Sino-US relations broke the ice during the Cold War, benefiting from the two sides’ adherence to the principle of mutual respect, seeking common ground while putting aside differences, and putting aside their ideological differences.
History is a mirror. At present, if China-US relations want to get out of the most severe situation since the establishment of diplomatic relations, the two sides should adhere to the spirit of no conflict, no confrontation, mutual respect, win-win cooperation, focus on cooperation, and control differences. It is imperative for the two sides to eliminate all kinds of interference, achieve a smooth transition of Sino-US relations, and prevent the plot of anti-China forces to kidnap the people of the two countries and Sino-US relations.
