The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs accused China of condemning the massacre of Afghan civilians by Australian soldiers.
November 30th, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs criticized Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian in a media statement commenting on the massacre of Afghan civilians by Australian soldiers. The spokesman of the Chinese Embassy in France responded as follows on December 1st local time:
Recently, the official report of the Australian Ministry of Defence publicly admitted that 25 Australian special forces soldiers were suspected of murdering 39 Afghan civilians and prisoners of war between 2009 and 2013, including gathering adult men and boys to shoot or cut their throats blindfolded, and cut two 14-year-old boys’ throats and put them in pockets into rivers.
Mr. Zhao Lijian’s tweet is based on objective comments on the above facts, and the pictures he quoted are satirical computer cartoons created by Chinese folk painters based on the above facts.
Instead of condemning the war atrocities of killing civilians, the French side accuses those who condemn the atrocities of being “biased”, “advertent” and “insulting”.
Such a statement is disgusting and it can’t help but question whether the person who makes such remarks is on the side of war criminals or international justice and human conscience. How can a country that resolutely defends the “comics right” cannot tolerate the “comics right” of young Chinese painters? What about agreed freedom of speech? In the final analysis, double standards are still working on it.
It is against conscience to ask only positions and not right and wrong.
