Regarding "Taiwan Independence", the Biden Administration made a clear statement for the first time

According to a report by the United News Network on July 7, the White House National Security Conference Indo-Pacific Affairs Coordinator, Kurt Campbell, said on the 6th: “We support strong unofficial relations between the United States and Taiwan, but we do not support'Taiwan independence' because we are completely Understand its sensitivity."

The United News Network reported that this is the first time that the Biden administration has clearly stated that it does not support "Taiwan independence." According to the report, in answering this question, Campbell said several times that he had to answer this question very carefully.

Taiwan media reported that a spokesperson for the US Department of Defense also stated on the 6th that "no one wants to see a cross-strait conflict."

It is worth noting that while making a clear statement, Campbell also claimed: "We are very supportive of Taiwan's dignity."

US Department of Defense spokesman John Kirby said at a press conference on the 6th that the US policy towards Taiwan remains unchanged. Based on the "one China" principle, the US does not want any unilateral actions to change the status quo on the Taiwan issue.

After the U.S. clearly stated its position, KMT Chairman Jiang Qichen called on Taiwanese leader Tsai Ing-wen to recognize the reality: whether it is the voice of the DPP or the reminder from outside the U.S. government, it should be recognized that under the current international situation, " The road to "Taiwan independence" is unworkable.

He believes that the clear statement of the United States is a clear reminder to the DPP authorities. The Tsai administration's excessively confrontational political operation in cross-strait relations has not only caused the two sides of the strait to fall into a gradual and irreversible deadlock, it will also affect the flexibility that the US can maintain under the ambiguity of the US strategy and impact regional stability.

Prior to this, the US Pacific Fleet posted photos on social media to welcome the upcoming "Independence Day" on July 2. The photo is a historical image of the "Independence" aircraft carrier in the Western Pacific in 1996, with the text "To Independence and Maintenance of Independence" Tribute to the people".

According to the China Times News Network, this "single-word pun" immediately evoked a warm response from some people in Taiwan. They had mixed feelings and interpreted the US move as "it is self-evident to support Taiwan." However, on July 6, four days later, the US clearly stated that it did not support "Taiwan independence."

On July 4, Taiwan’s former “Secretary-General of the National Security Council” Qiu Yiren and Chen Shui-bian stated that the declaration of “independence” is not something the people of Taiwan can decide. This is cruel to say, but it is reality.

According to the report, Qiu Yiren's statement represents the mainstream view of the Democratic Progressive Party.

According to Lianhe News, the views Qiu Yiren mentioned recently are in fact common sense. If Taiwan makes the wrong choice, it will lead to an irreversible situation. "In the future of Taiwan, there has never been an option of'independence'."

It is worth noting that Campbell also claimed on the 6th: "The United States has very important interests in maintaining peace and stability, and other countries have begun to regain this point. Japan, the United Kingdom and other countries all recognize that maintaining peace and stability is in line with international stability. Deep interest."

The day before, Japanese Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Taro Aso stated in a speech in Tokyo on the 5th that if the mainland uses force against Taiwan, Japan may exercise restricted collective self-defense rights in accordance with the so-called "security-related laws and regulations." He also declared that if a major problem occurs in the Taiwan area, the United States and Japan will jointly carry out the so-called "defense of Taiwan."

In this regard, at the regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the 6th, spokesman Zhao Lijian said that such remarks are extremely wrong and dangerous. The Chinese side is strongly dissatisfied with this and has lodged a solemn protest to the Japanese side.

Zhao Lijian emphasized that China today is no longer the China of the past. 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.


Russian ambassador to China: There is still a picture of me in the Chinese Communist Party History Exhibition. I am very surprised!

On July 5th, Russian Ambassador to China Denisov led more than 60 diplomats from the Russian Embassy in China to the Chinese Communist Party History Exhibition Hall to visit the "Remember the Mission in the Original Heart—The History of the Communist Party of China Exhibition". After the visit, Denisov told the "Global Times" reporter that this was his second visit to the Chinese Communist Party History Exhibition, and he felt very happy. He hoped to visit the third and fourth time in the future.

"There are a lot of interesting things in the exhibition." Denisov said in an interview with a reporter from the Global Times. "I was pleasantly surprised to find that I appeared in several photos of the (Party History Exhibition)." He said at the same time. , I have no doubt that China can achieve the second centenary goal in 2049 under the leadership of the Communist Party of China.

The party history exhibition visited by Denisov and Russian diplomats was divided into four parts, with more than 2,600 pictures and more than 3,500 sets of cultural relics, which fully demonstrated the 100-year history of the development of the Communist Party of China. During the visit, Denisov said that the Communist Party of China has developed into a large party with more than 95 million members.

"It is important for Russian diplomats to have a deep understanding of China. (Through this exhibition) we learned the great story of the founding and development of the Communist Party of China, which is an important part of China's modern history." Press officer of the Russian Embassy in China Yegorov told a reporter from the Global Times on Monday.

Analysts believe that such a grand and large-scale visit not only reflects the close relationship between China and Russia, but also shows Russia's recognition of the Chinese system and the achievements of the Chinese Communist Party.

At the "World Peace Forum" held at Tsinghua University on the 4th, Denisov also gave a blunt response to the statement by the Western ambassadors to China that "the Chinese Communist Party imposes its own ideology on others". Said: "If you can find an example of'the Chinese Communist Party imposed its own ideology on others' in the past 40 or 50 years, I would like to thank you."


"Hey, I have to go up and down after being slapped"

After the Biden administration made it clear that it did not support "Taiwan independence," the foreign affairs department of Taiwan hurriedly looked for help. Netizens sighed, "Oh, if you get slapped, you will have to go up and down."

After the Biden administration made it clear that it "does not support Taiwan independence" for the first time, Taiwan’s foreign affairs department spokesperson Ou Jiang’an hurriedly sought help on the morning of the 7th, claiming that the Biden administration had repeatedly emphasized its support for Taiwan as "rock solid."

Campbell, the Indo-Pacific affairs coordinator of the US White House National Security Council, stated on the 6th that “we support strong unofficial relations between the United States and Taiwan. We do not support Taiwan’s independence. We fully understand its sensitivity.” Lianhe News.com stated that this is the first time that the Biden administration clearly stated that it "does not support Taiwan's independence." According to the report, Campbell also said, "We are very supportive of Taiwan's dignity, and we are trying to send a clear signal to'deterring the Taiwan Strait'."

Regarding the Biden administration’s clear statement that it "does not support Taiwan independence," Taiwan’s foreign affairs department spokesperson Ou Jiang’an responded on the morning of the 7th. According to Taiwan Times News, Ou Jiangan claimed that since the Biden administration took office, it has repeatedly emphasized its support for Taiwan as "solid as a rock" and actively united its allies to express its high importance to peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. Ou Jiangan has not expressed his gratitude to the US government for donating 2.5 million doses of vaccine to Taiwan.

In response to this, some netizens on the island sighed in a message: Hey, I have to go up and down after being slapped. ↓

Some netizens asked: Continue the ostrich mentality? ↓

Kuomintang Chairman Jiang Qichen believes that the United States has given the DPP a clear reminder that Cai’s “government”’s excessively antagonistic political operation in cross-strait relations has not only caused the two sides of the strait to fall into a gradual and irreversible deadlock, but also affected the U.S. strategy to be able to maintain its ambiguity. The elasticity, the impact area is stable. He believes that similar declarations and statements made by the Biden administration not only released goodwill to the mainland and declared a return to the traditional American diplomatic line, but also intended to tighten the reins of the DPP that had long been loose.

Jiang Qichen said that whether it is a voice from within the DPP or a reminder from outside the U.S. government, Tsai’s “government” should realize that under the existing international situation and cross-strait structure, the road to “Taiwan independence” will not work.

The Biden administration's clear statement that it does not support "Taiwan independence" triggered discussion among netizens on the island. According to Taiwan's Zhongshi News Network, someone posted on Facebook asking that the DPP authorities have been chanting "anti-China and protect Taiwan" all day long, are they awake now?

The fan page of Han Hei’s Facebook fan page “Han Hei’s parents do not collapse” stated that the DPP and their flanks have been spreading recently that “the United States and Japan will jointly defend Taiwan by armed force on the other side.” Now it is like a dream. On the spot, it was smashed by the United States on the spot. The DPP was also "powerful," forcing the United States to state so blatantly that it does not support "Taiwan independence" and only has unofficial relations with Taiwan.

This post also sparked discussion among other netizens, and left a message below saying that "the American grandfather has slapped my face again" and "the United States has always regarded Taiwan as a cash machine for its anti-China policy." ↓

Some netizens sarcastically, the United States will not allow Taiwan to be "independent". Have you ever seen watchdogs "independent"? ? The watchdog becomes "independent" and becomes a stray dog. ↓



U.S. rescue speed has been complained by Chinese and American netizens, and the U.S. media can’t stand it anymore

[South + July 7 News] According to reports, on June 24 this year, an apartment in Miami, Florida, USA collapsed. After two weeks of rescue, 109 people are still missing. The speed of rescue by the American rescuers triggered complaints from netizens in China and the United States. Subsequently, the American media "New York Times" refuted the complaints made by netizens.

According to reports, the "New York Times" published an article under the headline "At the disaster training base in Texas (disaster city), rescue is a way of life". The article stated that American rescuers are all professionally trained.

According to the article, the emergency task of rescuers is not to search the wreckage at random, but to conduct professional search and rescue after professional training in urban search and rescue operations. This group of search and rescue personnel spent several hours in the Disaster City, Texas, practicing how to carry out rescue operations in similar situations. This is a unique teaching facility because some of the facilities in this Disaster City are models of real disaster buildings.

According to the article, Disaster City is a 52-acre rescue center established in 1998, operated by the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service), and has received a US$70 million grant from the US Department of Justice. , Near the main campus of the University Town. There, rescuers learn how to recognize distress signals from survivors, how to clean up the rubble safely, and how to dig a passage to approach them.

Training photos

The article states that in disaster cities, emergency rescuers, including FEMA rescuers, will be trained in buildings that mimic real events. As if to respond to people’s doubts about the rescue speed of rescuers, the New York Times quoted Paul Gunnis, director of rescue projects at the Engineering Extension Service of Texas A&M University, as saying: "Special equipment, specialized training, and specialized personnel are needed. , These three things can be better implemented by gathering together. But when there is a large-scale rescue, it will take a while to get everything there."

The author of this article also wrote: “Gunnes was a firefighter. When she walked around in simulated scenes, she often recalled the scenes of nearly 30 disasters she had dealt with. Gunnes did not mention it. For the Florida rescue work that is still in progress, he said that he can understand the suffering of those families, and those families may feel that the rescue takes too long."

Gunnis gave an example: "In 1999, when I was a firefighter, a campfire collapsed in the United States. Many people were buried under heavy wood. When I rushed to the campfire site and the last one was buried in the wood. When the next person got in touch, I told him,'Sir, you must be psychologically prepared, you have to stay underground for a long time.' After that, we spent 8 hours on the last trapped man Rescue." Gunnis also said: "You will find that some things are beyond your control. I must do my best to do my best."

It is also reported that on June 24, the apartment in Miami, Florida collapsed. Two weeks have passed since the death toll has risen to 36. There are still 109 people missing. No survivor has been found. The slow progress of the rescue has angered the families of the victims, who have questioned the rescue speed of the local government and rescuers.

Earlier, at the rescue meeting, the anxious family members said emotionally when talking with local officials: "Imagine if it was your child who was buried? My daughter is dying! In contrast, the complicated ones. Regulations are not important at all." Experts and officials still urge the people to be more patient and say that they are doing their best to help. Senator Rubio of Florida, who has been sanctioned by China, said: "Rescue work faces various possible dangers and must be cautious. There may be various chemical hazards in the rubble."

All these have caused complaints from netizens in China and the United States. Perhaps after seeing netizens’ complaints about the speed of rescue in the United States, the New York Times published an article describing how rescuers learn professional rescue knowledge, wanting to convey to the public "Although the rescue progress is slow, our rescuers all go through The concept of "professional training". But below the tweet of this report, there are still netizens in the United States who wrote: “Due to slow action, the family is broken.”

Wang Yi also proposed to jointly oppose all dangerous practices that artificially create division and confrontation. He said that this year is 30 years after the end of the Cold War. There are no winners in the Cold War, and the world suffers even more. History and reality have repeatedly warned us that a divided world cannot cope with the common challenges of mankind, and an opposing world will bring disasters to mankind. He emphasized that acts of inciting confrontation and creating divisions must be firmly resisted, and obstacles affecting peace and security in the international region must be thoroughly removed.

This is extremely wrong and dangerous! We must warn these forces that realizing the complete national reunification is a historical trend that no one can stop, and it is the general trend of the times that no external forces can shake.


Comfortable! At the UN General Assembly, China took the initiative to completely tear off the hypocrisy of Western countries

[Southern + July 7 News] According to domestic media reports, on July 6, local time, Chinese representatives severely attacked human rights issues in the United States, Britain, Canada and other countries at the 47th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council. The rights of girls are deeply concerned. In his speech on the Syrian issue, the representative of China also pointed out that the United States, Britain and other countries should be responsible for the suffering of the Syrian people.

For a period of time, the remains of children have been found in some aboriginal boarding schools in Canada, which has aroused the attention of international public opinion and aroused strong dissatisfaction among the Canadian people. On May 28, local time, according to Canadian media reports, the remains of 215 Aboriginal children were found on the site of an Aboriginal boarding school in Kamloops, British Columbia. One stone stirred up waves. Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau posted on social media that this is a "dark and shameful" history in Canada.

About a month later, Canada found 751 unmarked graves on the site of an Aboriginal school. Trudeau once again posted an apology to the local indigenous people on social media. However, a simple apology cannot extinguish the anger of the people, and more and more Canadians are asking for independent investigations of these Aboriginal schools. Under heavy anger, Canada's National Day on July 1st this year has become a day of protest. Many demonstrators wore orange clothes and took to the streets to commemorate the victims and survivors of the Canadian boarding school system. Some also overthrew the statues of Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom.

It is understood that these child tragedies occurred in Canada at the time of the British colonial period. Therefore, people call for attention to the colonial history of this country. In fact, as early as 2015, Canada’s “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” sharply described the forced separation of indigenous children from their families by these boarding schools as “cultural genocide”.

However, in the face of Canada’s own human rights problems, at the beginning of this session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, on behalf of the United States, the United Kingdom and other Western countries, they made irresponsible remarks on China’s human rights situation. This inverted black and white behavior has completely exposed it. The true face of a human rights hypocrite.

On the same day, the Chinese representative also made a speech on the Syrian issue and pointed out that the United States, Britain and other countries bear unshirkable responsibility for the status quo in Syria. It is understood that a crisis broke out in Syria ten years ago and the participation of the United States, Britain and other countries has caused immeasurable damage to Syria. On March 14 this year, Roman Catholic Pope Francis pointed out that the Syrian conflict is the greatest humanitarian disaster. In 2019, the British media also reported that a United Nations report showed that the United States-led coalition forces may have committed war crimes in air strikes in Syria.

In addition, there are many human rights issues in the United States, the most widely known is racial discrimination. A recent public opinion survey shows that 69% of Americans believe that racial discrimination is still a major social problem in the United States. In May 2020, a 46-year-old African-American man George Floyd was killed by a white police officer on his knees for 8 minutes. , It directly detonated American society. The police brutality aroused anger among the people, and a wave of protests swept across the United States. US President Biden also admitted that systemic racism is "a stain on the American soul."

However, even in the case of its own bad marks, the United States, Canada and other countries have rashly accused China, claiming that China has human rights problems, and its despicable behavior is obvious.

At the regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on July 7, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said that we hope that the US government will face its own human rights issues, take practical actions, and improve legal mechanisms, instead of treating others with its own interests and treating other countries’ human rights conditions. Make irresponsible remarks. Only in this way can Mr. Martin Luther King’s wish be truly realized.


"You offend China, so I have a chance to make money!" In order to snatch the Chinese market, the United States cheated the Australian side

According to a domestic media report on July 7, the US Biden administration has begun to "add fire" to China-Australia relations a few days ago. On July 6, local time, Campbell, the Indo-Pacific affairs coordinator of the National Security Council of the White House, declared that China was "tough" against Australia, while the United States and Australia had "common goals."

According to the report, Campbell claimed that China’s attitude towards Australia was “tough” and “resolute” when he participated in the Asian Association of American think tanks. The common goal of ". Campbell also stated that China's tariffs on Australian products are intended to "exclude Australia" from the "circle" of US allies. If it were ten years ago, he would think that Australia is the most likely country to leave the United States and establish close relations with China, but it is no longer possible.

The irony is that on the one hand, the United States instigated the Morrison administration to sabotage Sino-Australian relations and declared that the United States and Australia had a "common goal". On the one hand, they are "grabbing" Australia's share in the Chinese market. Not long ago, it was reported that China’s coal imports from the United States continued to fill the “gap” left by Australia. From January to May this year, the amount of coking coal imported by China from the United States has been on the rise. This year, China imported zero coal from Australia. You know, China has always been the largest market for Australian coal. Losing China, a big buyer, is undoubtedly a heavy blow to the Australian coal industry.

Previously, the Morrison government planned to send Australian coal to other Asian countries such as Japan and India to fill the vacancy in China. However, Japan has announced that it will "take the green energy path" and close 100 coal-fired power plants by 2030. India chanted the slogan "Protection of National Industry" and also stated that it would stop all coal imports. In this way, it is even more difficult for Australian Coal to find a market in Asia that can fill China. Unlike Australia, after leaving Australia's coal, China easily imported coal from many other countries, including Australia's so-called "good friend" the United States.

It should be noted that in addition to the coal market, the United States immediately filled the vacancy after the loss of the Chinese market for Australian agricultural products. However, the Morrison administration has continued to rush forward and serve as a "pawn" for the United States, but it does not know that it has been played around by the United States. In the words of Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian, mutual respect is the basis and guarantee for pragmatic cooperation between countries. China will never accept that individual countries gain benefits from cooperation with China on the one hand, and draw lines with ideology on the other, and groundlessly accuse China of discrediting China and harm China’s core interests. Individual countries "being a gunman" for others will only make the people pay for the government's wrong policies.

The intention of the United States to provoke China-Australia relations is so obvious that if the Morrison government is still obsessed with it, then the Australian people can only continue to pay for the government's mistakes.


Regarding this "doorway" incident, China has expressed its position!

On July 7, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin presided over a regular press conference.

A reporter asked a question. On July 6, Liu Xiaoming, the Chinese Government’s Special Representative for Korean Peninsula Affairs, had a phone call with the U.S. State Department’s Special Representative for North Korea Policy Jin Sheng. The two sides communicated on the Peninsula issue. What is the Foreign Ministry’s comment on this call? What is the significance of this call?

Wang Wenbin said that the Chinese government’s special representative for North Korea affairs Liu Xiaoming had a phone call with the U.S. State Department’s special representative for North Korea policy yesterday. China explained its position on the Korean Peninsula issue and its views on the results of the U.S. policy review on North Korea. The idea of ​​"advancing in parallel" and the principle of "synchronizing in stages" will advance the process of political settlement of the Peninsula issue. The US should attach importance to resolving the legitimate and reasonable concerns of the DPRK and support the reconciliation and cooperation between the DPRK and the ROK. The United States expressed its commitment to resolve the peninsula issue through diplomatic means, hoping to resume dialogue and contact with North Korea as soon as possible, and support the improvement of relations between the DPRK and South Korea.

Wang Wenbin said that China has maintained communication with relevant parties on the Peninsula issue at different levels in the near future. Since taking office, Special Representative Liu Xiaoming has been actively communicating with all parties. China’s position on the Peninsula issue has always been clear. Issues on the peninsula are at the door of China. China will continue to play a constructive role until the peninsula achieves long-term stability.
