After China's atomic bomb was finally released, countries around the world had different attitudes towards the incident of China's creation of the atomic bomb due to different positions. Countries closer to China will congratulate and affirm this meeting, while countries that have always stood on the opposite side of China will question China or speak sour words.
In addition to atomic bombs, weapons such as missiles and aircraft carriers can also greatly enhance national defense security and the country's military strength. Especially the aircraft carrier, a maritime fortress, as long as it is a country with an aircraft carrier, the military strength is very impressive .
German media evaluation
After China finally equipped the two aircraft carriers in the naval forces, various countries have different attitudes towards this . For example, the United States has ignited its vigilance, but it also feels that China's only two aircraft carriers now pose no threat to itself. As for Russia, it used to far exceed China's military strength, but the current situation is that it only has one aircraft carrier, which is not as good as China, so it is naturally sour iiand can't laugh.
As for Germany, since there has been no conflict of interest with China, the rise of China is not a big threat to it, so the German media issued a more pertinent evaluation in their opinion.
World powers in "shorts"
German media said that even though China has built two aircraft carriers, it is still a world power "in shorts". The German media made this statement because both of China's aircraft carriers are conventionally-powered aircraft carriers, and the endurance capabilities of the US nuclear-powered aircraft carriers are not enough . This also means that the long-distance combat capabilities of China's domestic aircraft carriers are very good. Restricted .
Moreover, the number of carrier-based aircraft that China's two aircraft carriers can carry is much lower than the number of carrier-based aircraft that can be carried by the eleven American aircraft carriers. Carrier-based aircraft are the main source of firepower, so in naval battles, China may have to suffer a loss if it faces the United States . Therefore, the German media will publish the remarks of the world power in "shorts" .
China's progress is obvious to all
However, Chinese people must not be discouraged by the German media's remarks. The speed of China's progress is obvious to all. Looking at all countries in the world, no country may be able to say that it can produce two aircraft carriers in just a few decades without experience in aircraft carrier research and development. In addition, the third domestically-produced aircraft carrier is already on the way. China has plenty of stamina, and the future can be expected .
Therefore, we can't just stare at the gap between ourselves and other countries. It is easy to blame ourselves and lose confidence. After analysis, it is not difficult to find that China is catching up very quickly. If this momentum continues, it is not without the opportunity to surpass the United States, Russia and other countries.
China has always been a country that combines reality, steadily, and down-to-earth development. It will never do anything fundamental to catch up with other powers faster. After all , the result of the Soviet Union is a lesson from the past, and China will naturally not follow its old path
Finally began to clean up the United States! After China gave Germany the trump card exploded, Merkel hurriedly called Putin
In today's international society, cooperation has become the main theme, and only common development in the post-epidemic era can go well and go steadily. China's economy has now recovered its vitality and has become one of the most competitive economies in the world. Germany has also enjoyed the dividends of China's economic recovery and accepted the "ace" given by the Chinese market.
The German media even pointed out that “German exports are indispensable for the strong recovery of the Chinese market.” Just after the trump card that China sent to Germany exploded, the world's attention was focused on Germany. Earlier, the United States announced the relaxation of sanctions on the German-Russian cooperation project "Beixi-2", but this matter did not proceed smoothly. China Youth Daily reported on June 24 that the US Secretary of State Brinken arrived in the German capital on June 23 In Berlin, before meeting with German Chancellor Merkel, Brinken first met with German Foreign Minister Maas. During the meeting, Brinken pointed out that Germany and the United States had not yet reached an agreement on the "Beixi-2" natural gas pipeline project. Unanimous.
Germany has always wanted to complete the Beixi No. 2 project. Some American right-wing scholars are very dissatisfied with this. Previously, a scholar named Michael Rubin even wrote an article accusing Germany of being a "bad ally" of the United States, with a very strong tone. However, Merkel herself knows very well that the international community must strengthen cooperation with all parties. Even under pressure from the United States, cooperation projects with Russia cannot be stopped.
Moreover, as a European politician, Merkel looks at things differently from that of the United States. After US President Biden met with Russian President Putin, Europe was willing to have a direct dialogue with Putin. German Chancellor Merkel pointed out on June 24, local time that the EU should seek direct dialogue with Russian President Putin while unanimously opposing Russia's “provocation”.
In her speech, she pointed out: "In my opinion, we in the EU should also seek direct contact with Russia and the Russian presidents. It is not enough for the US president to have dialogue with the Russian president, and different talks should be created."
After talking to Putin, Merkel wanted to do a historic event, but the European Union exposed another crisis.
World Wide Web News on June 25, German Chancellor Merkel said on June 25 local time that EU leaders rejected Germany and France's proposal to restart the meeting with Russian President Putin. Merkel said: "I would have liked to see a bolder step here, but this is also very good, we will continue to work hard on this."
On the occasion of the 80th anniversary of Nazi Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union, German Chancellor Merkel had a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin on June 22, local time. Merkel "expressed empathy to the Russian side about the endless disasters and suffering caused by the war launched by the Nazi regime." On the same day, the Russian President's website and the German Times Online website also published an article written by Putin to commemorate this historical event-"Let the past stay open."
Merkel will step down at the end of her term this fall. Before stepping down, Merkel seemed to want to do a big thing. From June 24 to 25, local time, the leaders of EU member states held a summit in Brussels, the capital of Belgium, seeking to properly handle the EU-Russian relations that are in a "vicious circle". Merkel hopes that the EU will consider inviting Putin to hold a summit with EU leaders. This initiative has been supported by French President Macron. Russia stated on June 24 local time that Putin is a "supporter" of this proposal.
Merkel once emphasized: "The dialogue between the US and Russian presidents is not enough. The EU needs to have direct contact with Russia and the Russian presidents." However, it is regrettable that the EU leaders rejected the proposal to restart the meeting with Russian President Putin.
In recent years, frictions between Russia and the EU have continued. Recently, due to the "forced landing" incident in Belarus, relations between Russia and Europe have once again become tense. Analysts said that under the current circumstances, the prospects for the EU and Russia to resume a partnership that can give full play to the potential of close cooperation remain slim.
There are disagreements within the EU on the proposal to restart the EU-Russia summit. Belgium and other countries expressed support, but Ukraine, the Netherlands, Poland, and the Baltic countries believe that Putin needs to show goodwill first. Different EU member states have different requirements for Russia, resulting in different policies towards Russia. This just exposes a crisis in the European Union-"unity". The 27 EU member states are by no means "monolithic." There are frequent contradictions and conflicts among member states, between interest groups, and between large and small countries, especially on major issues involving the sovereignty and interests of member states.
Putin asked the military for forgiveness, and then made a ruthless remark!
The Black Sea incident is still
The Russian Ministry of Defense the After The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and OUT Came with Various Abuses, Putin Also Personally Launched Against A Bombardment A FEW Days ago Member
It was the incident that the British warship broke into the waters of Crimea and was intercepted by Russian live ammunition.
The Annual the In "Direct Connection" Q & A, A Putin WAS Asked Question: Is The Confrontation BETWEEN Russian and British Warships ON The Verge of World War
Looking at the transcript of the full text of the dialogue, Putin seemed to be taken aback, but he quickly entered the state and replied like this:
This is a provocation, and it's obvious. What do these provocateurs want to show, and what are they trying to achieve?
First of all, it (provocative behavior) is a compound provocation. Not only the British, but also the Americans. The British sailed into my country's territorial waters during the day, and at 7:30 in the morning, a US strategic reconnaissance plane came from Greece. A NATO military airport took off, as far as I know, it is Crete. I got a report on this matter. Of course, I know everything, if I remember correctly, it ends in 63/9792. We saw it clearly and monitored it.
Obviously, the British destroyers entered (our territorial waters) in pursuit of military objectives, trying to detect our army's actions to stop provocations. With the help of reconnaissance aircraft, they tried to figure out how we acted... We saw this, and Send them the information we deem necessary. I may say that I missed my mouth, and I hope the military can forgive me.
The amount of information is huge. Some details were not reported by the media before.
Putin's meaning is also very clear.
1. The British warship is here to provoke.
2. Don't think that there is only the United Kingdom and the United States behind it.
3. The British are in the light and the Americans are in the dark.
4. In the morning, the American reconnaissance plane flew over from Crete. Do not think I do not know. Putin also showed his well-known side and directly reported the tail number.
5. Everything is under the control of Russia, and the Russian army has also issued a "necessary" message, that is to destroy British warships with live ammunition.
6. Of course there is Putin's humor. I may have missed it, so "I hope the military can forgive me"; but there is still a possibility that the British warship can retreat like this, and I also ask the military for forgiveness.
This is not yet finished, then Putin sent his own
A few days ago, a meeting was held in Geneva. The question is: why is there such a provocation? What is all this for?
Putin also seemed puzzled.
You know, he had just held a Geneva meeting with Biden before, and the general atmosphere of the meeting was pretty good. According to the analysis of many people, even though Biden once felt that Putin was a "killer," it is obvious that he has tried to win Russia through the summit and even provoke Sino-Russian relations.
But as soon as the Geneva Conference was over, the United States and Britain came to their doorsteps to provoke.
Putin was a little confused and
But the climax is the next question and answer.
Because it was a "direct connection" with the Russians, another Russian helped Putin analyze: Maybe NATO is teasing us? (NATO) The "Sea Breeze" military exercise is underway, and a Dutch frigate also arrived yesterday...
Which pot which does not open the pot Oh, Jiecha Putin said
The following is what I want to say. You say this brings the world to the brink of world war. No, of course not. Even if we sink that ship, it is hard to imagine that this will put the world on the brink of War III World, Because the this Those do know that the WHO CAN They not win that kind of the WAR. It IS Very
It seems to be very calm, but it is cruel.
The meaning is also very clear.
1. The Third World War cannot be fought.
2. Even if we sank a British warship, the British did not dare to go to war.
3. The reason is simple, they cannot win the war.
Although Putin also looked for a supplement next: I will not be happy about the outbreak of a new war, but at least we know why we are fighting. We fight for ourselves and the future in our own territory.
But the murderous aura revealed still makes people's heart startled.
So, Putin's talk about the "third world war" soon made headlines in major media.
What do you
First, Putin is somewhat unwilling. This time, the British warship came to provoke, but the British slipped away like this. Putin felt uncomfortable. Otherwise, he would not disclose many details, saying in a pun, "I hope the military can forgive me."
Second, Putin issued Putin-style threats. Even if this British warship is really blown up, there will be no world war, because the British dare not do anything. Therefore, it is no wonder that Russian officials clearly threatened: come again next time , directly bomb the ship.
Third, of course, the British are also hard-talking. Anyway, at the beginning, in addition to stating "I didn't see, I didn't hear" Russian interception, British officials also claimed that they would continue to send warships to the Black Sea and to the waters of Crimea...
After visiting the collapsed apartment a week later, Biden used his experience to comfort others and choked for a while.
[South + July 3 News] According to media reports, on July 1, local time, the President of the United States personally visited the collapse of an apartment in Florida for the first time a week later, using his sad experience to comfort the families affected by the collapse of the apartment and giving a speech. Tell them "Never give up hope." In his speech, Biden choked up when he mentioned his first wife who was killed in a car accident and the feelings of other children at the time when they were not sure whether they could be saved. The Associated Press said that few public figures express grief as strongly as Biden.
Biden lost his first wife and youngest daughter in a car accident, and later lost a son with brain cancer. In the first few months of his tenure, he used this to comfort those who lost their loved ones in the new crown epidemic.
The Associated Press said that that day, Biden described his own despair in an emotionally calm voice because he had to understand the current situation of the families affected by the collapse of the apartment. He spent more than three hours talking privately with those who were grieving , first addressing the entire affected family, and then listening to their experiences and feelings one by one. Biden sighed, waiting is unbearable, the lost people, maybe they will accompany you for a lifetime. When Biden finished his speech, the attendees could be seen severely in tears, and he and his wife Jill talked with those who could only wait for the next few hours.
Biden said that those who have lost their families and can only wait now asked him a heartache question: Is there any hope to find survivors, or whether they can find the bodies of their loved ones. Biden said that the news of the loss of their loved ones is already bad, but the most difficult thing is that they don't know if they will survive. The Associated Press mentioned that on the same day, Biden and his wife stopped by a memorial wall full of flowers and photos of the missing , and placed a bunch of flowers next to a crayon drawing that said "I love you."
Worryingly, according to the Associated Press, no survivor has been rescued since the collapse of the apartment in the early hours of June 24, local time. After listening to a briefing on the matter, Biden said that he believes the federal government is capable of covering all search and cleanup costs, and urged local officials to seek help from relevant authorities in Washington. Biden said this will let people know that the federal government and local governments can cooperate.
Earlier in the day, the White House stated that the Federal Emergency Management Agency deployed 60 staff and another 400 personnel to the five search and rescue teams at the request of local officials. The Federal Emergency Management Agency also allocated $20 million to the Florida Emergency Management Department to help respond to unexpected emergency measures.
It is worth mentioning that on the day Biden went to inspect the accident site, search and rescue work was suspended due to the risk of collapse of the apartment. Half of the apartment's walls have not completely collapsed. However, on July 2 local time, According to the Associated Press, officials in Florida are making plans to demolish the remaining parts of the collapsed apartment. Federal Emergency Management Agency structural expert Scott Nacheman (Scott Nacheman) said that engineers are studying different demolition methods to ensure the safety of the site without affecting the ongoing rescue operations. Nachman said that the demolition of the remaining part of the building will create a safer working environment, allowing more people to enter the site and speeding up the pace of work.
Prime Minister of Pakistan Railways solemnly reiterated to China!
"On behalf of the Pakistani government and people, I solemnly reaffirm to our Chinese brothers and sisters that Pakistan will always stand with China and be China's most reliable partner, hard-core brother and trustworthy friend at all times."
This is a historic moment for the people of China and Pakistan. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Pakistan and the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China. At this landmark moment, I would like to extend my warm congratulations to the governments and peoples of the two countries.
The historical origins of the people of China and Pakistan can be traced back to the ancient Silk Road. Many merchants, scholars, monks, and ascetics, such as Fa Xian and Xuanzang, crossed the perilous Karakoram Mountains to communicate with each other for the Chinese civilization and the Indus River. The mutually beneficial exchange and communication of river basin civilization has laid the foundation.
Profile of Prime Minister Imran Khan of Pakistan
In 1950, Pakistan was the first among Islamic countries to recognize the People's Republic of China. A year later, the two countries formally established diplomatic relations. Over the past 70 years, our brotherhood has withstood the changes of time and has continued to grow and has never been affected by changes in the regional and international environment. With the unremitting efforts of several generations, the relationship between our two countries has been upgraded to an all-weather strategic cooperative partnership.
In this great journey, Pakistan is the most staunch supporter of China's fight for its legal rights in the United Nations. Pakistan also assisted in the “secret visit to China” by Kissinger, the then US national security adviser, in 1971. That visit laid an important foundation for the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States and had a decisive impact on East-West relations. In July this year, we will celebrate the 50th anniversary of this groundbreaking visit.
Pakistan-China relations have deep mutual trust, understanding and common interests. This unique and time-tested "iron" brotherhood continues to develop and reach new heights one after another. We support each other on issues involving each other's core interests. Pakistan has always adhered to the one-China policy and supported China on issues such as Taiwan, Tibet, Xinjiang, Hong Kong, and South China Sea. China has always stood with us on Pakistan's key strategic, economic and development priorities. The people and government of Pakistan highly value China's fair and principled stand on the Jammu and Kashmir dispute.
Pakistan-China friendship is deeply rooted in the hearts of the two peoples. We have a fine tradition of supporting each other in times of difficulties. We have carried out exemplary cooperation in the fight against the new crown pneumonia epidemic. After the outbreak, Pakistan provided diplomatic and material support to China. In March 2020, President Arif Alvi visited China in solidarity with Chinese brothers and sisters. Similarly, China has provided important materials and vaccine support for Pakistan to fight the epidemic. The key assistance provided by China has effectively helped Pakistan fight the epidemic and saved many precious lives. China's fight against the epidemic has set a new example worthy of emulation for the world.
Since 1949, China has achieved world-renowned achievements in all fields of human social development. Since I took office as Prime Minister in 2018, I have visited China three times, and I am fortunate enough to have an in-depth understanding of the ideas and strategies behind China's rapid economic development. China's rapid development and prosperity have provided a new paradigm for developing countries to achieve economic and social development and progress.
Pakistan is one of the first countries to support and participate in the "Belt and Road" initiative proposed by President Xi Jinping. We highly agree with the spirit and philosophy of the “Belt and Road” initiative, and support transcending national boundaries to build a bridge of win-win cooperation, promote economic integration, and build a community of shared future. As a flagship project of the “One Belt, One Road”, the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and the Pakistani government's vision of “New Pakistan” complement each other.
The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor is a transformative project. In the first phase of construction, the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor helped us eliminate major infrastructure construction bottlenecks and met the basic energy needs for unimpeded economic growth. Of the 70 early harvest projects, 46 have been launched or completed, with a total investment of US$25.4 billion, creating 70,000 local jobs.
Source of a mountain pass on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor: foreign media
The second phase of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor will focus on industrialization, agricultural cooperation, social development and job creation. I believe that with the joint efforts of both sides, we will also successfully promote the No. 1 trunk railway project. The development and construction of Gwadar Port and the Free Trade Zone have also made rapid progress, which will surely promote regional connectivity and economic integration.
The core pillar of the "New Pakistan" vision lies in the geo-economy. It is committed to transforming Pakistan into a country with a vibrant economy through the development of partnerships, the promotion of interconnection and the maintenance of regional peace. Our goal is to fully mobilize Pakistan's geographic and economic location advantages and the rapidly growing population dividend of 220 million to become a global economic melting pot and economic center.
Under this vision, the Pakistani government has implemented decisive and far-reaching reforms in all areas of the economy, enabling our country to gradually embark on a path of better quality, more inclusive and more sustainable development. Despite the challenges posed by the new crown pneumonia, Pakistan's GDP is expected to grow by 3.94% in the 2020-2021 fiscal year.
In order to fully release Pakistan's potential as a geo-economic center, we have introduced positive incentives to attract foreign investment and initiated fiscal and currency reforms to create a good business environment. We welcome Chinese businessmen and entrepreneurs to benefit from relevant mechanisms and regard Pakistan as the preferred destination for establishing long-term business ties.
China has become Pakistan's largest foreign direct investment country and largest trading partner. The second phase of the China-Pakistan Free Trade Agreement was formally implemented on January 1, 2020, further expanding the scope of bilateral trade liberalization products.
If the country's wealth cannot benefit the poor in society and achieve fair growth, then any amount of development is meaningless. Our development vision is to eliminate poverty and let the people become the masters of their own destiny. In this regard, we hope to draw inspiration from China's successful practice of lifting 800 million people out of poverty in just 40 years.
In the process of realizing the people-centered "New Pakistan" vision, I look forward to further benefiting from China's experience. During my meeting with President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang, the two sides reached important consensus and agreed to push bilateral relations to unprecedented heights and open up new areas of cooperation in economy, trade, investment, and cultural exchanges. A high degree of mutual trust is the most fundamental feature of Pakistan-China relations. Pakistan is willing to continue to deepen mutual trust with China, maintain the momentum of high-level exchanges, and unswervingly support each other on issues of core interests.
The Communist Party of China has made great contributions to the peaceful return of the Chinese people and China to the center of world politics and economy. Under the far-sighted leadership of President Xi Jinping, the Chinese people are on the road to realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. We sincerely hope that under the inspiring leadership of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core, China will basically realize socialist modernization in 2035 and build a prosperous, democratic, civilized, harmonious and beautiful socialist modern power in 2049 on the great historical journey. Keep moving forward.
On behalf of the Pakistani government and people, I solemnly reaffirm to my Chinese brothers and sisters that Pakistan will always stand with China and be China's most reliable partner, hard-core brother and trustworthy friend. Let us join hands to build a closer China- Pakistan community of shared future in the new era.
Independence Day, Biden broke his word
Experts warn that if vaccination cannot be advanced quickly, once the highly transmissible mutant virus becomes the dominant virus, another epidemic may come back in autumn.
July 4 this year is the second independence day in the United States in the new crown epidemic. Since coming to power, the Biden administration has repeatedly boasted the "American speed" of the new crown vaccine and set a high profile "milestone" goal for Independence Day. But this wish of the White House fell through.
While local vaccination encounters a bottleneck period, vaccine production accidents and scandals about the expiration of stockpiling have followed one after another. Whether the belated foreign aid promises can be fulfilled has also raised questions about the outside world.
Vaccination slow virus spreads fast
As a key step towards "herd immunity," the Biden administration stated in early May that it will strive to get 70% of American adults vaccinated with at least one dose of the new crown vaccine before Independence Day.
However, the latest data shows that as of 8 pm Eastern Time on July 4, the number of people who have completed at least one dose of vaccination in the United States is approximately 182 million, accounting for 54.9% of the total population, far below the 70% target.
This result is also expected. According to the "Washington Post" website, the number of single-day vaccination in the United States has dropped significantly since its peak in mid-April.
The progress of vaccination in different regions of the United States varies greatly. In the capital, Washington, about 72% of adults have received at least one dose of the new crown vaccine, which is considered a “press line” that has passed the passing line set by Biden. In Texas, the second most populous state, only 41% of residents completed the vaccination.
Biden: The people in this session can't lead... Source: theconversation
Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, warned that vaccination may be divided into "two United States": not only the vaccination rate is very different, but the ability to deal with the epidemic, especially the mutant strain "Delta ", may also Set a verdict on top of one another.
Experts warn that if vaccination cannot be advanced quickly, once the highly transmissible mutant virus becomes the dominant virus, another epidemic may come back in autumn.
Some people can't fight, some people refuse to fight
Where is the bottleneck of vaccination in the United States?
First of all, the unfair vaccination in the United States has become prominent.
The data shows that among the groups that have been vaccinated against the new crown, the proportion of African Americans and Hispanics is significantly lower than their proportion in the total population. According to surveys, only 38% of Hispanics have completed at least one dose of vaccination, compared with 46% of whites.
In fact, Hispanics are more willing to be vaccinated. However, just like the reasons why they have difficulty in obtaining adequate medical resources, taking time off for vaccination may lead to unemployment, worry about not being able to pay, and inconvenient transportation in remote areas, which may cause many people to fail to get vaccinated. The need to check identity documents for vaccination also discourages large-scale illegal immigrants of Hispanic origin.
Secondly, politicization and other factors have led to a considerable proportion of “diehard” rejecting the vaccine.
Since the outbreak last year, the epidemic has always been politicized. Political stance inevitably affects Americans' attitudes towards the new crown vaccine. Data show that the willingness of Republican supporters to vaccinate is relatively weak, and some "deep red states" that are the basic Republican party have a lower vaccination rate, such as Texas.
The proportion of people receiving at least one dose varies greatly among the states of the United States. Image source: mayoclinic.org
In addition, some people are very distrustful of the safety and effectiveness of vaccines, and the easing of the epidemic situation has reduced the urgency for people to vaccinate. According to a poll in June, about 41% of people who have not yet received the new crown vaccine said they would never get it, and about 17% said they would only receive it under mandatory requirements such as workplaces or schools.
Too many vaccines have expired
Today, in the face of excess inventory, Tennessee, North Carolina and other states have had to return millions of doses of vaccine to the federal government due to insufficient vaccinations.
According to estimates by the Washington Post, the total number of new crown vaccines hoarded by the US government is enough to vaccinate 750 million people, while the US adult population is only 260 million. The result of too much "stocking" is that some vaccines are "put bad" and no one gets shot. Until not long ago, the Biden administration said it would support vaccination work in other countries, but whether the promise can be fulfilled has been questioned.
Some American experts complained that vaccines are lacking in many parts of the world, and the United States has an obligation to "not let the vaccine expire," otherwise it will trigger "real anger."
"Pick yourself up in the foot"! U.S. media: "New Crown Lab Leaked Saying" Makes the Democratic Party Stuck
On May 26 this year, US President Biden ordered intelligence agencies to thoroughly investigate the "mystery of the origin of the new crown virus" within 90 days, including whether the virus came from nature or a laboratory accident. Since then, the so-called "laboratory leak" argument has emerged.
However, in less than half of the 90 days, the Biden administration had already "retired." A senior U.S. government official previously revealed that even Biden himself has realized that "there may not be an absolutely clear answer" in 90 days.
However, being "slapped in the face" is not the worst. The US media pointed out in a report on the 4th that the Biden administration's request to investigate whether the new crown virus is a "laboratory leak" seems to "lift a stone and hit itself in the foot."
↑Data map. coronavirus. According to NDTV TV station
The US media said that with the outbreak of a new round of epidemics in parts of the United States, the "narrative" surrounding the new crown epidemic crisis will undoubtedly affect the upcoming 2022 midterm elections to a large extent. However, because the Biden administration’s investigation has not yet “new findings”, Democrats worry that the vague conclusion that cannot find strong evidence that the virus is “Made in China” may “be in the hands of the Communist Party of China” and handed the “handle” to the Republicans. Hands.
The inconclusive investigation makes the Democratic Party "ridden with difficulty"
The report pointed out that on the one hand, the Democrats asked intelligence agencies to investigate the theory of the so-called "lab leak" of the new crown virus, and on the other hand, they strongly accused the Trump administration of failing to respond to the new crown epidemic. Next, there are only two possibilities waiting for them: one is to continue to fan the flames on the "artificial virus" issue, but this theory may never be confirmed; the other is to wait for the Republicans to accuse them of plotting to cover up the truth. Because once the Biden administration fails to come to a clear investigation result, the evidence that may prove that the "laboratory leak theory" is not valid will inevitably attract "fire" from the Republican Party.
Such an embarrassing situation undoubtedly puts those Democrats who are eager to accuse the Trump administration of complete failure in the epidemic into trouble.
"Regardless of the cause, it cannot justify the deadly consequences of the Trump administration's improper response to the new crown pneumonia. The president has the responsibility to protect public health, regardless of the source of this public health crisis." Member of the House Special Subcommittee on Coronavirus Crisis, Maryland Democratic Representative Jamie Ruskin argued.
Recently, the subcommittee rejected a request from Republican members to hold a hearing on the origin of the new crown virus. However, according to US media reports, despite the Democratic Party's efforts to evade, this issue has been "detonated" many times within Congress in the past week.
↑ Rep. Jim Jordan at a hearing on the origin of the new crown virus led by the Republican Party. According to "New York Post"
Last Tuesday, after relevant Democrats refused to participate, senior Republicans in the House of Representatives from four congressional committees held an informal "hearing" on the origin of the new crown virus and accused Democrats of ignoring the issue.
Last Thursday, during the US House of Representatives' review of the 2022 fiscal year "national external management" spending bill, lawmakers from both parties also had differences on the theory of "New Crown Laboratory Leakage".
The report pointed out that as the problem became more and more difficult to avoid, Democrats who were "riding a tiger" had to make a trade-off between the two.
Whether to investigate the origin, hesitated because of partisan politics
Currently in the US Congress, multiple committees are conducting relevant reviews. However, Democrat Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, told Politico News that they can only investigate "the source of less investigation" and focus more on holding intelligence agencies accountable for how they responded to the new crown pandemic. He also said that he, like his colleagues, is worried that the "laboratory leak" theory will add fuel to the fire. "We have discussed the politicization of intelligence work and how to ensure that it is a purely analytical goal, taking into account different viewpoints," he said.
Many Democrats also expressed that they are still hesitant to investigate the origin of the new crown virus, worrying that this will weaken the public's attention to the Trump administration's chaotic response to the epidemic. They are also worried that the focus of this incident will encourage conspiracy theories and anti-Asian comments, which have spread around the so-called "laboratory leak theory."
However, these are unlikely to stop the Republicans from complaining about the Democratic Party's delays. According to sources, the Republican Party is urging all committees with jurisdiction over the matter to hold hearings and summoning federal infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci and the President of the National Institutes of Health Francis Collins and other officials to testify.
As the midterm elections approached, the Democrats' worries became more apparent. "It's really difficult, because whatever you find will be used for terrible purposes (the Republican Party), (but) you can hardly conduct a legal investigation." Congressional Progressive Party leader and Democratic Rep. Pramila Jayapar "complained".
"Love the United States, then get the new crown vaccine!" Biden made a heavy voice, unexpectedly even the US military was fighting against it.
According to a domestic media report on July 6, although the US new crown vaccination target has not been reached, the highly contagious Delta (Delta) mutant virus is raging across the United States. US President Biden also admitted that the new crown virus has not been completely eliminated, but this is the slightest. It did not affect the Thousand People Party held at the White House to celebrate American Independence Day. However, when the Biden administration called on the people to get the new crown vaccine as soon as possible, most people in the United States are fighting against it.
According to CNN, July 4 this year is not only the 245th "Independence Day" in the United States, it is also the time when Biden decided on May 4 that 70% of adults will be vaccinated against the new crown. But in fact, out of the 50 US states and Washington, DC, only 20 US states have achieved this goal. US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Valensky recently revealed that there are still about 1,000 counties in the United States where the vaccination rate is less than 30%.
At the same time, the delta mutant virus is raging in the United States. On July 2, the CDC issued a report saying that due to the widespread spread of Delta (Delta) mutant virus, the current average daily increase of new crown cases in the United States on the 7th is about 12,514, an increase of 9.1% from the previous week; caused by the Delta mutant strain Infection cases accounted for 26.1% of the total number of new cases in the United States. It should be mentioned that in the report released by the CDC in early June, this figure was only about 6%.At that time, US public health officials warned that the number of newly confirmed cases of the delta mutant strain in the United States was still rising, and that the delta strain had become the greatest threat to the United States to control the epidemic.
Although the new crown epidemic is not optimistic, it has not affected the Thousand People Party held in the White House. On Independence Day, July 4, local time, Biden held the largest personal event since he took office at the White House. Amid the cheers of more than 100 people, he generously praised the United States' achievements in fighting the new crown epidemic. Said that "the United States has come out of the new crown epidemic." However, Biden also admitted that he has not completely eliminated the new crown virus. He called on the public to get the new crown vaccine as soon as possible, "This is the most patriotic thing you can do."
The irony is that for Biden's statement, whether it is the "dead enemy" Republican Party, the "loyal" US Democrats, military personnel, or the "freedom" American people, there are people who do not "buy it.". On July 4, local time, a poll published by The Washington Post and the American Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) showed that 6% of Democratic respondents said they were unlikely to be vaccinated against the new crown, but the Republican Party's ratio reached 47%, and 38% of them said they would definitely not get vaccinated.
The survey results also showed that among the unvaccinated people, 30% of American adults refused to vaccinate, 73% believed that the Biden administration had exaggerated the risk of delta mutant virus infection, and 79% believed that they were not vaccinated. Will be infected with the new coronavirus. On July 5, local time, Congressman Thomas Massey of Kentucky stated on social media that he had heard from American soldiers that if the Biden administration required them to be vaccinated against the new crown, they planned to withdraw from service.
It should be mentioned that it is not a whim that American soldiers do not want to be vaccinated against the new crown. In May, a poll published by the non-profit organization "Blue Star Family" showed that 50% of US military families who had not been vaccinated and had not made an appointment said they did not plan to get the new crown vaccine. On February 17, US Department of Defense official Jeff Tagliafello revealed at a congressional hearing that based on "early data", about one-third of the US military personnel refused to receive the new crown vaccine. The Pentagon said at the time that the country's military data “basically reflect the US society's vaccine acceptance rate.”
July 4 was very important, but Biden poured cold water, and Fauci had already warned "two Americas".
According to a report from the World Wide Web on the 5th, citing Agence France-Presse, US President Biden warned at the American Independence Day celebration on the 4th that even though Americans have made great progress in fighting the epidemic, the new crown virus has not been "eliminated."
"We have the upper hand in fighting this virus," he told a crowd of cheering guests on the White House lawn. But Biden added, "Don't get me wrong: the new crown virus has not been eliminated. We all know that powerful (new crown virus) variants have emerged, such as the Delta strain."
According to previous reports, US President Biden planned to host a Thousand People Party at the White House on July 4, US Independence Day, and announced that the US "has been out of the new crown pneumonia epidemic." However, the "New York Times" and other media reminded that this plan has encountered an unpleasant reality: At present, less than half of the people in the United States are fully vaccinated with the new crown vaccine, and the highly contagious delta strain is making the epidemic face. The new outbreak is at risk, and public health experts worry that the celebration will send "misinformation."
As a key step towards "herd immunity," the Biden administration stated in early May that it will strive to get 70% of American adults vaccinated with at least one dose of the new crown vaccine before Independence Day. However, the White House had to admit on June 22 that this goal was not achieved.
According to the "Washington Post" website, the number of single-day vaccination in the United States has declined significantly since its peak in mid-April. Only 20 states and the capital, Washington, can achieve at least one dose of vaccine for 70 % of adults before July 4.
Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of the United States, recently warned that vaccination may lead to the differentiation of "two Americas"-not only the vaccination rate is very different, but the response to the epidemic, especially the mutant strain "Delta" I am afraid that the ability will also be judged.
Recently, the US has seen a surge in cases of mutated new coronavirus. Among them, the high-risk, highly-transmissible "Delta" mutant virus infection cases double about every two weeks, and it currently accounts for 26% of the total number of new cases. American experts warned that if vaccination cannot be advanced quickly, once the highly transmissible mutant virus becomes the dominant virus, another wave of epidemics may come back in autumn.
"China ate American lunch" after frying pan, Biden wanted to copy Chinese homework, why did he suffer so much?
Prior to this, US President Biden mentioned many times that "the Chinese are eating our lunch." In his speech, he claimed that Congress needs to pass his 2.3 trillion dollar spending plan to revive the US economy.
Biden wanted to copy China's operations and invested heavily in infrastructure, but he really suffered.
China Daily pointed out that within the federal government, issues surrounding infrastructure construction have mixed with too many small group interests. Take the recent infrastructure plan vigorously promoted by the Biden administration as an example. In the quarrel in the Senate, the total amount has been shrinking from 2.3 trillion US dollars. Only US$1.2 trillion is left in the latest framework reached by the two parties, and half of it is expenditures authorized by Congress, and only US$600 billion are new investment projects.
The report pointed out that although the power of the US federal government has continued to expand since the end of the Civil War and has become a veritable big government, the political foundation of this big government structure is the central-local relationship inherited from the era of decentralization and the central government. Internal decentralized checks and balances lack an effective and unified supervision mechanism. There are more people and more departments. They are reluctant to unify their thinking, and it is difficult to reach a compromise, and there is no need to bear the consequences of responsibility. When every department and every politician promotes infrastructure construction, it is entirely out of their own self-interest, rather than focusing on the overall situation of the country.
This political characteristic of disposition, selfishness, and no responsibility has caused the US infrastructure construction and other areas of internal politics to often fall into a never-ending layered game. This kind of strange phenomenon will only grow more and more in the United States today when the political views and interests of the two parties in the United States are highly divided.
According to reports, on June 24, Biden held a press conference to announce that the White House had reached an agreement with a bipartisan group of senators to improve US roads, bridges and broadband infrastructure. The total scale of this plan is lower than the $1.7 trillion infrastructure plan proposed after the Biden administration made concessions at the end of May, and is close to the $1.25 trillion recently proposed by the bipartisan House Problem Resolution Caucus.
According to the Associated Press, the scale of the program is $1.2 trillion in eight years. The new plan will include new expenditures of $579 billion. US$312 billion will be used for transportation, of which US$109 billion will be invested in roads, bridges and other major projects, US$66 billion will be used for passenger and freight railways, US$49 billion will be used for public transportation, and US$15 billion will be used for electric vehicle infrastructure. 266 billion US dollars will be invested in non-transport infrastructure, of which 73 billion US dollars will be used for electricity, 65 billion US dollars will be used for broadband, and 55 billion US dollars will be used for water power.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs answers questions about the refusal of Chinese students' visas by the United States, and the Japanese Prime Minister's remarks on China
China Net, July 6, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian hosted a regular press conference today and answered questions from reporters on the rejection of Chinese students' visas by the United States and the Japanese Prime Minister's remarks on China. The following is the text record:
Xinhua News Agency reporter: According to reports, Singapore's Honorary Counsellor Goh Chok Tong pointed out at the 9th World Peace Forum meeting recently that China is focused on improving the quality of life of its people through economic growth, rather than seeking hegemony in Asia or challenging the global hegemony of the United States. status. China's development has played a positive role in Asia and the world. What is China's comment?
Zhao Lijian: We appreciate his positive evaluation.
General Secretary Xi Jinping solemnly declared at the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China that we have achieved the first centenary goal, built a well-off society in an all-round way, and historically solved the problem of absolute poverty. The practice of common development between China and the world shows that we have not only created a new path for Chinese-style modernization, but also provided new opportunities for the world with China's new development.
China has repeatedly emphasized that peace, harmony and harmony are the concepts that the Chinese nation has always inherited, and that hegemony and hegemony have never been China's choice. There is no gene in our blood to invade others and dominate the king, and we have always opposed the practice of harming others and self-interest, and you lose and I win.
In today's world, more than ever, we need to persist in cooperation and openness, and abandon confrontation and isolation. China will continue to advance hand in hand with all progressive forces in the world, promote the common values Of peace, development, fairness, justice, democracy, and freedom for all mankind, promote world peace and common development, oppose hegemonism and power politics, and promote the building of a community with a shared future for mankind. Struggle tirelessly.
CCTV reporter: Recently, more than 500 Chinese students sent a letter to the Chinese Embassy in the United States, stating that their application for a visa to study in the United States was rejected by the United States. What is China's comment?
Zhao Lijian: We have noticed that recently some Chinese students who applied for visas to the United States were rejected by the United States on the grounds that they violated Presidential Decree No. 10043 signed during the Trump administration. The Chinese side has expressed serious concern about this and has lodged solemn representations with the US side. People-to-people exchanges are the foundation of Sino-US relations. Academic, educational, and technological exchanges are an important part of China-US humanities exchanges, and are of great significance to enhancing mutual understanding and recognition of the two peoples and promoting the stable development of Sino-US relations.
The US visa restrictions have continued the legacy of the Trump administration. This is inconsistent with the US's statement of "welcoming Chinese students", seriously damaging the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese students studying in the United States, and seriously undermining normal Sino-US cultural exchanges and educational cooperation. This is also completely contrary to the United States' self-proclaimed concept of openness and freedom, contrary to the trend of the times for international talent exchanges, and the common desire of the Chinese and American people to develop friendly exchanges. It is a backward step in history.
China urges the US to correct its mistakes, reconsider relevant Chinese students' visa applications for study in the United States, stop using various excuses to restrict and suppress Chinese students unreasonably, protect their legitimate rights and interests, and create a good atmosphere for China- US cultural exchanges and educational cooperation.
Barton News Agency reporter: Yesterday, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan visited Gwadar Port, an important part of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, and initiated a number of development projects to further promote economic activities. Ambassadors from seven regional countries including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, Egypt, and Kenya also participated in the event and expressed their commitment to the development and cooperation of Gwadar City. What is China's comment?
Zhao Lijian: China is pleased with the new progress made in the development and construction of Gwadar Port. During my permanent stay in Pakistan, I visited Gwadar Port 6 times, and I have deep feelings for the construction of Gwadar Port. Gwadar Port is a commercial cooperation project between China and Pakistan based on the principle of equality and mutual benefit. With the joint efforts of both parties, the operating capacity of the Gwadar Port area has been fully restored, the free zone investment promotion has progressed smoothly, and the international transit trade has continued to expand. This has played a positive role in promoting local economic development, improvement of people's livelihood, and regional interconnection.At the same time, Gwadar Port, as an important part of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, upholds the principles of extensive consultation, joint construction, sharing, and openness and transparency. China and Pakistan welcome any third party that supports the construction of the "Belt and Road" and the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor to participate in the Gwadar Port and other corridor projects on the basis of mutual respect, mutual benefit and win-win results, and to share the construction of the "Belt and Road". dividend. It is believed that with the joint efforts of all parties, Gwadar Port will achieve greater development, become a regional trade hub and industrial cooperation base, and play a greater role in promoting regional development and prosperity.
China News Agency reporter: Statistics show that the loss of Australian agricultural products' market share in China provides an opportunity for American products to fill the vacancy. In the past year, the United States has increased its exports of wine, beef, cotton, wood , coal and other products to China. In February of this year, the US exports of wine in bottles of 2 liters and below to China more than tripled in the same period last year. Some comments in Australia pointed out that the United States and Australia are competitors in agricultural exports. The United States will not protect Australia's economic interests. The Australian government should not blindly follow the US, but should handle its relations with China in a more rational manner.What is China's comment?
Zhao Lijian: At present, China is accelerating the construction of a new development pattern with domestic and international cycles as the main body and mutual promotion of domestic and international double cycles, and is committed to achieving higher-quality development under more open conditions. This will release a lot of cooperation opportunities and space. It is estimated that in the next 15 years, China's imports of goods will exceed 30 trillion US dollars. China has always been committed to developing foreign economic and trade cooperation, and is willing to share development opportunities with other countries in the world to jointly build an open world economy.
At the same time, I want to emphasize that mutual respect is the basis and guarantee for pragmatic cooperation between countries. We will never accept that individual countries benefit from cooperation with China on the one hand, and draw lines with ideology on the other, and baselessly accuse China of smearing China and harming China's core interests. Individual countries "being a gunman" for others will only make the people pay for the government's wrong policies. The situation introduced in the reporter's question just now is what they deserve.
CCTV reporter: According to reports, Lacanillo, a professor of microbiology and immunology at Columbia University in the United States, said in an interview that the reason why the previous US government wanted to make waves on the traceability of the new crown pneumonia epidemic was to address this issue. Add political color. They didn't think about science at all. The story of the so-called laboratory is over! What is China's comment?
Zhao Lijian: China has repeatedly emphasized that traceability is a scientific issue, and related work should be carried out in cooperation with scientists around the world. For a period of time, we regret to see that some scientists have carried out tracing research with an objective and fair standpoint and scientific spirit, but they have encountered political pressure, verbal abuse and even threats.Rasmussen, an American virologist who publicly opposes the "laboratory leak" conspiracy theory, has been constantly subjected to cyber violence, harassment and even personal threats; Australia, who once worked at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and refuted the "laboratory leak" theory with his own experience Scientist Anderson is frequently abused and intimidated; Nobel Prize winner and Australian immunologist Doherty said that as long as scientists contradict the fictitious arguments of conspiracy theories, they will be labeled as “ultra-left” and even suffered. defamation.
The above facts have made us more and more clearly see that the so-called traceability studies in the United States and other countries are actually engaged in political manipulation. They do everything they can to slander and discredit China, and even extend their black hands to them. In the field of science, a movement to silence the Party against scientists has been launched. These countries always call themselves "democracy beacons" and "human rights models." They have always been pointing around and accusing other countries of coercing, suppressing , and infringing on freedom. However, they acquiesced, condoned and even instigated such blatant threats to the person and damage to their reputation.This can only show that their self-promotion is not true, that their conspiracy and conspiracy cannot be seen, and it can only show that they can be desperate for political self-interest.
The act of politicizing the traceability issue will only seriously hinder global traceability cooperation, undermine the global anti-epidemic efforts, and cause more loss of life. Relevant countries should correct their attitudes, respect science, immediately stop coercing scientists, stop politicizing the traceability issue , and refrain from undermining the common cause of the international community to fight the epidemic for their own benefit.
Bloomberg reporter: According to Kyodo News, Japan's Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso said that if major problems occur, Japan and the United States will have to jointly defend Taiwan. China's invasion of Taiwan can be regarded as a kind of "survival crisis", which allows Japan to exercise the right of collective self-defense. What's the comment of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs?
Zhao Lijian: This kind of remarks is extremely wrong and dangerous. It seriously violates the principles of the four political documents between China and Japan and damages the political foundation of China-Japan relations. China is strongly dissatisfied and firmly opposed to this, and has lodged a solemn protest to Japan.
Japanese militarism has committed countless crimes of aggression against China. Some politicians still have an obsession with Taiwan to this day, fully exposing that they have not learned profound lessons from history.
China today is no longer the China it was then. We will never allow any country to intervene in the Taiwan issue in any way. No one should underestimate the Chinese people's determination, determination, and strong ability to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity.
"Beijing Daily" reporter: According to reports, a few days ago, leaders of Japan and Pacific island countries and regions held the 9th "Pacific Island Summit." Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga stated in his opening speech that the Pacific region is now facing new challenges such as the social and economic impact of the new crown epidemic and competition with authoritarianism. Japan attaches great importance to the sustainability of the government debt problem of recipient countries. Japan's aid approach is different from China's practice of causing recipient countries to fall into a "debt trap" during the period of aid. What is China's comment?
Zhao Lijian: China has always carried out mutually beneficial cooperation with Pacific island countries based on the concept of a community with a shared future for mankind and true affinity and sincerity, and provided assistance without any political conditions within its capacity. The cooperation between the two sides is established on the basis of mutual respect and equal consultation. The goal is to develop the economy and improve people's livelihood. It is sincerely welcomed by the governments and people of Pacific island countries. It is unpopular for some ill-intentioned countries to hype the so-called China's aid to Pacific island countries to create a debt trap.
Speaking of challenges, Japan is preparing to discharge water polluted by the Fukushima nuclear accident into the Pacific Ocean. This is a major challenge to the environment, health and safety of countries along the Pacific Ocean. Earlier, the Secretary-General of the Pacific Islands Forum issued a statement expressing concerns on behalf of the leaders of the forum members. Rather than being busy discrediting China with false information, Japanese leaders should first explain how they can avoid letting the people of Pacific island countries fall into the "environmental trap" that would be caused by the discharge of nuclear contaminated water.
"Global Times" reporter: A few days ago, the "Australian" published an article saying that in the official documents submitted to the Review Conference of the Biological Weapons Convention in 2011 and 2016, China discussed artificial synthesis of viruses and the use of viruses as genetic weapons. Theories such as the implementation of covert attacks also mention that artificially synthesized viruses in laboratories, such as operating errors, will pose a huge threat to humans. The article stated that China "issued a frightening warning" in these documents. What is China's comment?
Zhao Lijian: I have noticed relevant reports. The document mentioned in the report is a report on the development of biotechnology submitted by China to the Review Conference of the Biological Weapons Convention. Reviewing the development of biotechnology has always been a key issue under the framework of the Convention. The submission of relevant reports is a requirement of the Review Conference. In the report, China objectively introduced the development of global biotechnology, analyzed its impact on the Biological Weapons Convention, and made recommendations from the perspective of strengthening the Convention's mechanism . This fully reflects the responsible attitude of China in earnestly fulfilling the contract.
"The Australian" report is taken out of context and has ulterior motives. The Chinese report introduces the development of global biotechnology. Many studies are actually carried out in the United States, including the artificial synthesis of pathogens by American scientists. In fact, the United States has always been the largest implementer and funder of such research in the world, such as the University of North Carolina mentioned in the report.
The Chinese report pointed out the various risks brought about by the development of biotechnology, including the risk of laboratory leakage. This is a common international view. The "Australian" report attempted to use this to hype the new crown virus conspiracy theory, which is very ridiculous. I would like to emphasize again that traceability is a serious scientific issue. The China-WHO joint research report has reached a clear conclusion that it is extremely unlikely that the new coronavirus originated from a laboratory leak.In accordance with the requirements of the WHO resolution, and in accordance with the conclusions and recommendations of the traceability joint research report, it is the right direction to carry out more in-depth and detailed scientific research and cooperation on a wider scale.
At the same time, I also want to emphasize that strengthening laboratory safety has always been a key issue in global biosafety governance. The United States is precisely the country with the most biological laboratories and the most opaque in the world, and it is also the only country that opposes the establishment of a multilateral biological verification mechanism. China once again calls on the United States to take a responsible attitude, seriously respond to the concerns of the international community, clarify the activities of laboratories at home and abroad such as Fort Detrick , and openly accept inspections.
Headquarters Yangguang reporter: According to reports, the container used to store nuclear waste at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant leaked in March, and a gel-like object with a large amount of radiation appeared in the area where the incident occurred. On the 1st , Japan's Tokyo Electric Power Company announced that 548 of these containers had been corroded or dented, and the relevant containers had been repaired and strengthened with fiberglass tape. What is China's comment?
Zhao Lijian: We have taken note of relevant reports and expressed serious concern about this. This once again shows that there are great security risks behind the Japanese Fukushima nuclear-contaminated water discharge decision. For the sake of immediate economic benefits, the Japanese side will stubbornly abandon promises, disregard obligations, treat science as if there is nothing, and expose its hypocrisy and selfishness.
The Japanese side has negative domestic people. The Japanese government and TEPCO have reached an agreement with a number of related private organizations, promising not to conduct any treatment of nuclear-contaminated water without the understanding of the relevant personnel. Japan's unilateral decision to exclude the CAN BE to BE of Said Seas disregarding people's Sentiments and disregarding Promises. TEPCO has Tampered with the Data Concealed MANY Times the before, the ITS But IT only Changes Display name history Reputation deficit.
Japan violated its international obligations. The Japanese government's claim that the relevant practices have been recognized by the International Atomic Energy Agency is purely misleading. The International Atomic Energy Agency has never approved or approved Japan's decision to discharge nuclear-contaminated water into the ocean. Its expert team clearly pointed out in the assessment report that the radionuclides in Japan's existing nuclear-contaminated water need to be further purified.
The Japanese distorted scientific facts. The Fukushima nuclear accident is one of the most serious nuclear accidents in the world so far. Its polluted water contains a large amount of radionuclides produced by nuclear fission. There is no precedent for discharge in the world. The impact on the marine environment, food safety and public health cannot be ignored. The Japanese claim that nuclear-polluted water meets discharge standards and can even be drunk. This is more a financial calculation than a scientific consideration. Japan's Tritium-Containing Polluted Water Task Force report has pointed out that polluted water is the lowest cost option, which is the second least expensive option-one-tenth of the amount of steam released, and takes the shortest time.
Japan has always been trying to build a responsible country image, opening up its international responsibilities and international obligations, but this time when it came to due diligence, it deliberately ignored and flickered. This practice of "saying one thing and doing another thing" fully exposed the true face of the Japanese side.
Currently, the International Atomic Energy Agency is preparing to establish a related technical working group. The Japanese side should earnestly show sincerity to cooperate with the work of the working group, and handle relevant issues prudently in an open, transparent, and scientific manner in an attitude of being highly responsible for the international public interest. We once again urge the Japanese side not to initiate sea discharging without authorization until they have fully negotiated and reached an agreement with all stakeholders and relevant international institutions.
Taiwan Guoguang reporter: Recently, the 47th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council held an interactive dialogue with the special rapporteur on freedom of speech. On behalf of many countries, China made a joint statement on the harmfulness of false information. Does the spokesperson have any further comments on the issue of "false information"?
Zhao Lijian: The current new crown virus is still raging around the world, and the "political virus" is also spreading. Based on ideological prejudice and political self-interest, individual countries and forces continue to spread a large number of false information and lies and rumors, and maliciously attack and smear other countries. The amount of false information they disseminated was not only surprising, but also embarked on a “specialization” road, forming a complete chain of lies of “scholars broke the news, media hype, and government follow-up." In order to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, implement unilateral coercive measures, Suppression and containment of other countries continue to make excuses.The so-called "the existence of'genocide' and'forced labor' in Xinjiang" is a negative example of them spreading false information to suppress China.
US President Lincoln once said, "You may deceive everyone at a certain moment, or you may deceive some people at all times, but it is impossible to deceive everyone at all times." It is hoped that relevant parties will stop fabricating and disseminating false information, and stop using false information as a political tool to attack and exert pressure; hope that the people of the world will keep their eyes open and not be deceived and misled by false information and lies and rumors; hope that people of insight in the international community will speak up and use the truth False, use conscience and justice to expose sinister plots.
AFP reporter: The Tokyo Olympics will begin this month. Which leader will China send to represent China?
Zhao Lijian: China supports Japan in successfully hosting the Tokyo Olympics. As for the specific question you mentioned, I have no news to release at present.
