Wang Wenbin stated that on June 22, at the 47th session of the UN Human Rights Council, Belarus made a joint speech on behalf of 65 countries, emphasizing that Hong Kong, Xinjiang, and Tibet affairs are China's internal affairs and oppose politically motivated actions against China based on false information. Unreasonable accusations and opposition to interference in China's internal affairs under the pretext of human rights.

A small number of Western countries interfere in China's internal affairs under the banner of human rights and suppress and contain China. The attempt to suppress and contain China is doomed to be futile, and has been and will continue to be resolutely opposed by the international community. We urge these countries to withdraw their black hands from interfering in the internal affairs of other countries, take off the hypocritical masks of human rights teachers, deeply reflect on and take practical measures to solve their own serious domestic human rights problems, and abide by the purposes and principles of the UN Charter and the basic norms of international relations. The cause of international human rights is developing in a healthy way. (Reporter Yu Xiaoqing Yu Xiaoxuan)

awkward! US media revealed that Biden "releases pigeons all over the world": 80 million doses of vaccine have not yet been given 1/3

[Southern + July 2nd] According to Russian media reports, on July 1, local time, US media quoted relevant data and reported that as of the end of June, the administration of US President Joe Biden (Joe Biden) had failed to report to many countries around the world. Deliver the promised 80 million doses of new coronavirus vaccine.

According to reports, in a speech at the White House in mid-May, Biden claimed that the United States will become the "world's new crown vaccine library" for countries in need, and announced that it will provide more vaccines to other countries and regions than Russia and China.. According to Biden, as of the end of June, the United States will provide a total of 80 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine to other countries and regions to fight the epidemic.

However, as of June 30, the United States has only shipped 24 million doses of vaccines abroad, which is less than one-third of the total promised. At the same time, the report pointed out that the delivery of this batch of vaccines only involves 10 countries and regions, which is far from the initial promise of about 50 countries and regions.

According to the report, although the vaccine produced in the United States is ready, delivery has been delayed due to the legal, logistical and regulatory requirements of the United States and recipient countries. Previously, White House Press Secretary Psaki said that once countries are ready to receive these vaccines and the government has solved complex logistical issues, including vaccination supplies such as syringes and alcohol swabs, vaccine refrigeration, customs procedures and even language barriers, the vaccines will be Issued immediately.

In early June, the White House stated that it would share 80 million doses of the new crown vaccine with the world by the end of June, and has formulated a specific distribution plan to share the first batch of 25 million doses of vaccine to areas in urgent need. US Secretary of State Blincoln said at the time that the 80 million dose commitment is likely to be just the beginning, because the United States' goal is to speed up the vaccination efforts of other countries in the world, and hope that 70 % to 80% of the world's people will be vaccinated by the end of next year.

Biden misjudged the situation, the United States will hand over to China? US media: Washington can only blame itself

The "Indo-Pacific Strategy" proposed by former US President Trump vigorously advocated the outdated Cold War mentality and promoted group confrontation. Its essence is to maintain the hegemonic system dominated by the United States. After taking office as President of the United States, Biden inherited Trump's "Indo-Pacific strategy" and held the first four-party security dialogue between the United States, Japan, India, and Australia in March this year, in an attempt to engage in a "small circle" against China.. In addition to Japan, India, and Australia, Southeast Asian countries are also key targets for the United States. However, the Biden administration's Southeast Asian policy has recently been severely criticized by the US media.

According to news from the Global Times on June 29, the US Foreign Policy website recently published an analysis article criticizing the Biden administration's lack of focus on Southeast Asia's foreign policy, and saying that if Southeast Asian countries continue to gradually tilt towards China, then Washington can only Blame yourself.

The article believes that Southeast Asia is an important frontline in the new era of Sino-US geopolitical competition. When US President Biden took office, the entire region was "full of goodwill." Southeast Asian leaders hope that Biden will not be as volatile as former US President Trump, and that he is more willing to spend time in economic and diplomatic activities. However, since Biden took office, this kind of goodwill is fading. Instead, a sense of disappointment is spreading when talking about America's lack of focus and chaotic goals. If Biden cannot find the focus again soon, Washington may damage its credibility in the region—and further lag China in influence.

The article pointed out that Southeast Asia should have been important to Washington. This includes two US allies: the Philippines and Thailand. There are other major partners, including Indonesia, Singapore and Vietnam. Although not all the problems in the Biden administration are caused by him, some problems are indeed caused by Biden himself. For example, he made little effort to call Southeast Asian leaders, nor did he fill in the vacant ambassador positions.

The article concludes that it is not easy for the United States to find the right balance between competing with China and pacifying Southeast Asia. The problem is that the Biden administration does not even seem to try to achieve this balance. The region's complaint about the “ lack of focus" of the Biden administration is correct. If Southeast Asia continues to tilt towards China as a result, Washington can only blame itself.

Biden makes Americans "breath" again? The first lady's voice just fell, and the polls release red flags

The World Wide Web reported on July 1 that the first lady of the United States Jill Biden recently praised that thanks to her husband, President Biden's handling of the new crown epidemic, “everyone's arm was vaccinated” and Americans were able to once again "Breathe ." This caused ridicule from the outside world.

As we all know, the Biden administration has previously admitted that it "may not be able to achieve the predetermined goal of giving 70% of American adults at least one dose of the vaccine before July 4." According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 66% of American adults have received at least one dose of the vaccine and 57% have received two doses of the vaccine.

In addition, Jill also ignored that these vaccines were developed during the time of former President Trump. Last year, the Trump administration also ordered 200 million doses of Pfizer vaccine and 200 million doses of Modena vaccine.

Soon after the first lady of the United States made these remarks, on June 30 local time, Gallup, a world-renowned consulting agency, released the results of a poll. Polls show that less than 10% of Americans currently believe that the new crown epidemic is the most serious problem facing the United States, which is much lower than the proportion of respondents who regard the US government as the country's most serious problem.

The Gallup poll on the United States was conducted from June 1st to 18th. 1,012 American adults were randomly selected for the survey, and the margin of error of the survey results was plus or minus 4 percentage points. When asked about the main problems in the United States, 8% of respondents chose the new crown epidemic. This is the lowest point since the epidemic began to be included in the polls, down 7 and 12 percentage points from May and April, respectively. 22% of people believe that the government is the most serious problem in the United States, an increase of 6 percentage points from May. Racism, immigration, and the economy are also listed as important issues. The proportions are 11%, 9%, and 9%, respectively, which have not increased significantly from May.

The Gallup poll pointed out: "As more and more Americans are vaccinated against the new crown and most of the new crown prevention restrictions across the country are lifted, it is unlikely that the epidemic will be listed as the most urgent issue in the United States . Although. The public's view of the new crown epidemic situation has become more positive, but their view of the government has deteriorated."

Recently, the cause of the collapse of an apartment building in Miami, Florida, and the ineffective rescue of the US government have made many Americans even more dissatisfied with the US government.

The number of deaths exceeds 600,000, and the virus ravages the United States! First Lady of the United States: Thanks to Biden for saving the United States

With the large-scale promotion of vaccination, the number of new cases in a single day in the United States has been significantly reduced compared to before, but the epidemic situation is still not optimistic. According to Worldometer's real-time statistics, as of about 6:30 on July 1, Beijing time, the cumulative number of confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia in the United States exceeded 34.54 million, and the cumulative number of deaths exceeded 620,000. Compared with the previous day's data, there were 16,260 new confirmed cases and 294 new deaths in the United States.

On the other hand, the "Delta" variant of the new coronavirus that has recently ravaged many countries has covered almost all states in the United States. According to CNN, the number of people infected with the Delta strain of the new crown virus in the United States is rising, with reported cases covering almost all states in the United States. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of every five confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia in the United States is infected with the Delta strain. Health experts and officials worry that areas with low vaccination rates may see a surge in Delta strain infections this autumn and winter.

Although the epidemic situation in the United States is still severe, the optimism of the first lady of the United States Jill Biden is quite surprising. According to the New York Post, US President Biden's wife Jill Biden said in an exclusive interview with a US fashion magazine: “When I travel around the United States now, I feel that people can breathe again. I am. I think this is part of the reason why Joe (referring to President Biden) was elected. People want someone to save the country, not just from the epidemic. I think Joe did it. You know, he made everyone's arms He was vaccinated. But he was just a calmer president. He cooled the atmosphere."

In this regard, the "New York Post" analysis pointed out that the Biden administration may not be able to achieve the predetermined goal of giving 70% of American adults at least one dose of the vaccine before July 4. Because according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), currently, only 66% of American adults have at least one dose of the vaccine. In addition, Biden's wife also ignored that these vaccines were developed during the Trump era. Last year, the Trump administration ordered 200 million doses of Pfizer vaccine and 200 million doses of Modena vaccine.

Biden received bad news, Trump has launched an onslaught! "Destroying the country" resounded across the United States

Although he has resigned for more than five months, former US President Trump still maintains a high degree of activity, and there is still a large number of supporters and followers. Following his first rally since leaving office in Ohio, Trump recently went to the US -Mexico border area.

According to "Global Times" quoted a number of US media reports, on June 30, local time, Trump was invited and accompanied by the Republican Texas Governor Abbott to Weiss, located in southern Texas and bordering Mexico. In Deportivo, there are more than 20 Republican federal congressmen with Trump. In front of an unfinished border wall, Trump lashed out at the immigration policy of the Biden administration, accusing Biden of "abolishing border controls, ignoring national security, and destroying our country."

Trump stated that his immigration policy was very successful, and Biden abolished his previous tough policy, which led to an increase in illegal immigration and drug smuggling, giving the United States "an open and truly dangerous border." Trump criticized the Biden administration for not completing the construction of the border wall, and expressed regret that the border wall was not painted black. He believed that black would make the border wall too hot for immigrants to climb.

Abbott praised Trump for “doing more than anyone and any president in ensuring border security” and vowed to complete the construction of the border wall. He also told Fox News reporters that Texas will "use all available means in accordance with the law."

Some US media commented that the Republican Party wants to regain control of Congress in next year's midterm elections, and the immigration issue will become the focus of the party's candidates' campaign activities, and Trump is the "top-tier" to help them increase their attention. Republicans hope to make immigration a core issue in the 2022 mid-term congressional elections to attack the "weak underbelly" of the Biden administration.

However, in the face of the menacing Republicans, the Democrats are not to be outdone. On the same day Trump visited the US-Mexico border, the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives passed a resolution with 222 votes in favor and 190 votes against it , deciding to set up a special committee to investigate the riots on Capitol Hill on January 6 this year. The special committee will be led by Democrats, and Speaker of the House Pelosi will appoint the chairman of the committee. The special committee's investigation may continue until next year, when the conflict between the two parties will intensify.
