According to a report from the Russian TASS news agency on July 27, local time, the spokesperson of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Zaharova said when talking about the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moiz that the United States has been interfering in Haiti's internal affairs. Zakharova also mentioned Chinese vaccines, saying that Haiti's neighboring Dominican Republic has received China's help in fighting the epidemic, so it can control the new crown epidemic. The Dominican Republic has also attracted some Chinese investment. Haiti also wants to negotiate with China on the new crown vaccine, but the United States blamed Haiti after learning about it, and continued to put pressure on Haiti.
Zacharova said that the United States has been strongly interfering in Haiti's internal affairs. After the assassination of the President of Haiti, the US government and the Colombian government soon sent representatives to Haiti. The United States has also sent a small batch of Pfizer vaccine to Haiti before, but it is not enough to control the spread of the epidemic in Haiti, and the United States has not really helped Haiti. Haiti is still the only country in the Western Hemisphere that does not have a vaccination plan. In addition to the spread of the new crown epidemic, infrastructure construction in Haiti is also a major problem.
Zakharova pointed out that former Haitian President Moise saw an example of the Dominican Republic receiving aid from China and the prospect of infrastructure investment. It is possible that the US government has realized that Haiti wants to cooperate with China, so Haiti's actions have angered the US government, and no one knows what the US will do when it is on the brink of anger. Zakharova also emphasized that the information she provided was not insider or speculation, but was based on public facts and media information.
Regarding the information provided by Zakharova, the Russian newspaper Izvestia stated that in the assassination of the President of Haiti, a large part of the suspects flew from Colombia to Haiti, and Colombia is one of the United States' strongholds in Latin America. Representatives of the Russian government said that the CTU security agency in Florida, USA, had provided air tickets for the suspects from Bogotá, the capital of Colombia.
Zakharova said in a statement: "Usually, the private military companies and mercenaries that Americans use to achieve their goals in various parts of the world are hiding under the guise of'US' security agencies. According to Venezuelan intelligence services, Earlier, the CTU The security organization also participated in the assassination plan of Nicolas Maduro, the head of the Venezuelan government. Zacharova added that in the assassination of the President of Haiti, two suspects were US citizens."
It is reported that Moiz was assassinated in a private house on the night of July 7, local time, and his wife was also injured and hospitalized. On July 20, the number of suspects involved in the assassination of Moise reached 26. Among them, American citizens stated that their purpose was not to kill Moise, but to serve as an interpreter for Moise. According to the confessions of the suspects, it was a foreigner who ordered the assassination of Moise.
According to a report by the Associated Press local time on July 26, the Haitian police have arrested a senior Haitian official, Jean Laguel Civil, who was the captain of the Haitian Presidential Security Corps. Before Seaville was arrested, Dimitri Herard, another senior security officer, was also detained. Seaville's lawyer stated that Seaville is innocent, and the real culprits are those who authorized Colombians to enter Haiti, and the Haitian police should arrest those people.
domestic media reported July 27 that recently, the Boston Consulting Group released a research report. The report shows that the United States once accounted for 37% of global semiconductor production capacity, but now it has dropped to 12%. Unlike the downward trend in the United States, China's semiconductor production capacity is steadily increasing. It is estimated that 40% of the new chip production capacity will be concentrated in China in the next 10 years, and China will also become the world's largest semiconductor manufacturing base. An important Chinese data was exposed, and the US media were worried. Biden could not sit still this time.
According to the report, last week, the CEO of the famous chip maker Intel said that the shortage of semiconductors not only hindered car production, but also pushed up prices for consumers. In addition, the shortage of semiconductors may also trigger international turmoil, and the possibility of war cannot be ruled out. After a large-scale "chip crisis" occurred in the world, countries have gradually realized the importance of chips, and competitions in this field have been quietly launched.
The United States, once the leader in the field of semiconductor R&D and design, now sees China is shortening the distance, US President Biden can finally sit still. In June of this year, the US Senate passed a bill that will provide $52 billion in subsidies to support domestic chip production. It is understood that this subsidy includes US$39 billion in R&D and production funds, US$10.5 billion in project implementation funds and US$1.5 billion in emergency financing. Among them, the 1.5 billion US dollars will be used to replace the Chinese-made communications equipment currently used by US companies.
On July 22, local time, US Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimundo said at a White House press conference that if the US Congress does not pass the above-mentioned bill, there is no need to worry, because the US government has formulated other plans in advance to prevent the United States from The status of the chip field has declined. Raymondo also revealed that the White House has established a professional team and communicates with the team every day to do a lot of homework to solve the problem of chip supply shortage.
At the press conference, Raimundo also specifically emphasized that through the efforts of the professional team, the supply channels of American automakers have been significantly improved. In the context of global semiconductor shortages, this is undoubtedly good news.
It seems that the United States has made sufficient preparations, but representatives of the chip industry have poured cold water: This subsidy worth $52 billion will take at least six months to be paid in place, not to mention that this bill has not yet been received by the US Congress. Through. Some analysts pointed out that the semiconductor industry is not a simple industry, and it can change the status quo without spending money. At present, the United States is only responsible for the front-end manufacturing of chips, and more high-end finishing work is usually done overseas. If you want to transfer more chip manufacturing to the United States, you have to build factories and train employees, which also takes a lot of time.
It is worth mentioning that the main competitor of the US in the field of chips is in Asia. South Korea plans to invest about US$450 billion in chip research in the next ten years. Japan will also expand the existing 200 billion yen (equivalent to 1.84 billion US dollars) capital scale to increase the production of advanced batteries and semiconductors.
In July of this year, the data released by the American think-tank Apens Institute showed that China's R&D expenditure on scientific research has been increasing since the beginning of this century, while the United States has been seriously inadequate in investment in this area in recent years. China's R&D expenditure in 2020 has reached 2,442.6 billion yuan (equivalent to 380 billion US dollars), and the "American Innovation Act of 2021" just passed by the US Congress has invested only 250 billion US dollars, plus a subsidy of 52 billion US dollars in June, The United States is far inferior to China.
Unlike the United States, as the world's number one manufacturing country, China has made great efforts to alleviate the severe shortage of chips. Data released by the National Bureau of Statistics on July 15 show that in June this year, my country produced 30.8 billion integrated circuits in a single month, a sharp increase of 43.9% year-on-year, accelerating the realization of "chip freedom."
On this basis, first-line chip foundry giants such as SMIC and TSMC are also accelerating the deployment of the much-needed 28nm chip production line in China. In addition to TSMC spending US$2.8 billion to expand production in Nanjing, Jiangsu, SMIC also announced in March this year that it would invest US$2.35 billion in Shenzhen to build a new 28nm chip factory.
Experts on the island talk about the Sino-US Tianjin talks: China's confidence comes from being prosperous and strong now
The US Deputy Secretary of State Sherman has just concluded his visit to China, and the development of Sino-US relations has attracted attention again. Wang Tianjin, a professor in the Department of Business Management at Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology, believes that whether it is Foreign Minister Wang Yi or the entire Chinese society's confidence in the face of the United States, it is derived from the mainland's system and leadership mechanism. This is also the reason why Wang Yi first emphasized to Sherman in the "Three Bottom Lines" that "the United States must not challenge, slander, or even attempt to subvert the road and system of socialism with Chinese characteristics."
In addition, Sherman emphasized in front of Wang Yi that "US-China relations are the most important bilateral relationship in the world", "has no intention of restricting China's development, nor does it want to contain China"; and reiterated the one- China policy and opposed "Taiwan independence." Wang Tianjin believes that China is bound to listen to what it says and watch what it does, because the words of the United States are unreliable. Don't even believe in the promises of the United States , including Taiwan.
Wang Tianjin, born in 1955, from Tainan, Ph.D. in management from the University of Paisley in the United Kingdom, now a professor in the Department of Business Administration at Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology, and formerly in the management of Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences (now reorganized and merged into Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology) Dean of the college.
Regarding Wang Yi's meeting with US Deputy Secretary of State Sherman in Tianjin on the 26th, Wang Tianjin believes that what the United States is saying in diplomacy and what it actually does need to be reviewed. The United States has been a veteran hegemony for a long time, so how can it really be happy to see China's rise and be equal? As for Sherman's statement that the United States does not want to restrict or curb China's development, these remarks are simply polite.
How do you see the purpose of Sherman's trip?
Wang Tianjin believes that Sherman's trip should just be to reach a tacit agreement with China that “the United States and China should not have military conflicts”. He believes that with China's current strength and national strength, facing any country, talking about any "bottom line" should be able to achieve the realm of "righteousness" and "righteousness".
Regarding Sherman's meeting with Wang Yi, “As two major countries, the United States and China can communicate and discuss in a responsible manner even if they have differences. It is hoped that both sides will take joint actions to promote the improvement of relations between the two countries. Sherman reiterated that the United States adheres to one China. The policy does not support Taiwan's "independence"".
Wang Tianjin said that China and the United States are aware that each other is the world's two powers. Therefore, how the United States and China view themselves and each other will affect the future US-China relations. He believes that Wang Yi is trying to tell the United States that the moment after Biden took office is a new node in the direction of US-China relations, and that Sino-US relations are at a watershed of choice. China also hopes to maintain relations with the United States. At least Both sides should increase understanding through continuous dialogue, eliminate misunderstandings, prevent misjudgments, and manage differences.
In addition, Wang Tianjin said that Wang Yi made up a lesson in front of Sherman and reiterated China's "three bottom lines", and that the Taiwan issue is regarded by China as a "top priority". This is a signal to Taiwan. The current ruling party in Taiwan should rethink cross-strait relations and rebuild the cross-strait communication mechanism. It must not believe the promise of the United States in a blindfold.
Wang Tianjin said that the United States has been in Afghanistan for 20 years, and now it just walks away, and it is still sneaking away. I am afraid that even terrorists will look down upon it. The 23 million people in Taiwan should seek truth from facts and justify the facts when facing cross-strait relations. Those in power cannot be short-sighted, or be led by the United States all the time.
How do you look at the confrontation between China and the United States, China's confidence?
Wang Tianjin said that the United States is used to and has long thrown dirty water on China on various issues, but Wang Yi took this opportunity to reiterate China's bottom line, including that the United States must not challenge, slander, or even try to subvert the path and system of socialism with Chinese characteristics. Because China is now becoming prosperous and strong, it has deep confidence in its own leadership, including lifting hundreds of millions of people out of poverty and building a well-off society. This alone is enough to become China's confidence to speak to the United States.
Foreign media: Biden said the US may go to war with a "big power" due to cyber attacks
that recently the United States suffered several major cyber attacks, affecting the supply of fuel and food in some areas. Cybersecurity has been on the top agenda of the Biden administration. (Compile / Cai Hui)According to Reuters Washington, US President Biden said on the 27th local time that if the United States is subject to a major cyber attack, it may engage in a "real gun battle" with a "big country." According to reports, Biden has been a half-hour speech during a visit Office of the Director of National Intelligence, he said that if the United States eventually heavily armed War broke out with a big country, it would be the result of significant consequences of cyber attacks. # Biden major network attack is the reason the United States to go to war with a large country
Don't fight against China and Russia? On this issue, Biden is very clear: we must cooperate with China and Russia
According to the official website of the US White House, when US President Biden spoke at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence on July 27, he praised US intelligence agencies and intelligence staff and said that the US should cooperate with Russia and China, even though they are the US Competitors.
Biden said in front of the staff of National Intelligence Director Avery Haynes that it is necessary to cooperate with countries that compete with the United States, such as China and Russia.
Biden said: "You know, when we compete with China and other countries for the future of the 21st century, we must be at the forefront of the cutting-edge development of science and technology. I want to point out one thing. You know , when I first acted When a US senator came here, actually 35 years ago, our investment in research and development accounted for more than any country in the world. It's different now."
Biden pointed out that the world is undergoing tremendous changes. He said: "It is especially important that we work closely with our partners and allies to maintain our technological advantages, consolidate the supply chain, and ensure that the rules governing technology support democracy."
Biden continued: "At the same time, we must cooperate with our competitors such as China and Russia. They may be our deadly competitors on the road in the future, but we must cooperate with them to deal with existing threats, such as, Climate change. Some things are in our common interests. But we cannot be misled and think that this is enough. We don't need to keep paying attention to what the opponent's ultimate goal is. But there are some things that we should cooperate with. "
Biden went on to explain: "This common danger affects all countries. Climate challenges have exacerbated instability in our own country and around the world: extreme weather events are more common and more deadly; food and water insecurity; sea level Rising, leading to climate change, promoting more immigration, and posing a fundamental risk to the most vulnerable communities. The US Department of Defense also stated that the biggest threat facing the United States is climate change."
In his speech, Biden also answered questions about vaccines and mask guidelines raised by reporters.
Recently, there have been many floods in Europe and hundreds of people have died; extreme heat and drought in the United States and Canada continue, and mountain fires continue to spread in many places; forest fires in Siberia in Russia are raging, and air pollution in the "ice city" is serious; global climate problems have once again become the world's concern focus.
On July 21, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian presided over a regular press conference. Some reporters asked questions about U.S. special envoy Kerry's call for China and the United States to cooperate in the field of climate change.
Zhao Lijian said that China and the United States, as the world's largest developing country and largest developed country, shoulder a common mission in tackling climate change, and should further strengthen communication and cooperation and play a leading role in the international arena.
