span> After responding to a question from foreign media on the 30th that”Australia Prime Minister wants China to apologize”, the original author of the comic Wu He Qilin, who caused Morrison’s”strong dissatisfaction”, responded via Weibo. When he was asked what he thought of the incident in which Zhao Lijian posted his painting on Twitter and was”hung up” by the Australian Prime Minister, he said,”Then I can draw another one when I have time tonight.”
On the 29th local time, Australian Prime Minister Morrison suddenly demanded an apology from China. The reason was that Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian urged Australia to investigate the recent war crime allegations and quoted Chinese cartoons in his tweet. A satirical cartoon of a black unicorn. In the cartoon, an Australian soldier puts a knife against a child’s throat with the text”Don’t be afraid, we will bring you peace.” Morrison declared that this cartoon was”fake” and that the Chinese government should be”ashamed.”
According to Australian media reports such as the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) on the 30th, Morrison asked China to formally apologize on the grounds that China”published and forged a propaganda picture of an Australian soldier who had cut his throat.”
Morrison said at the press conference:”This is totally outrageous and untenable on any basis… The Chinese government should feel that this post is published Shame, this degrades their image in the eyes of the world.” He also said that countries around the world are paying attention to how Beijing responds to the tensions in Australia-China relations.
In response to this, at the regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China this afternoon, spokesperson Hua Chunying responded to the incident. A reporter asked that Australian Prime Minister Morrison asked the Chinese side to apologize for the cartoon of the Australian army killing Afghan children on Twitter by the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Zhao Lijian, saying it was”fake” and that China should”feel ashamed.” )”.
Hua Chunying said that Australian soldiers committed serious crimes in Afghanistan. This was reported by the Australian media itself and was confirmed by the Australian Ministry of Defense investigation report. The Australian Defence Force Commander Campbell held a special conference on this to introduce the content of the report. The details disclosed in the report were shocking and creepy. They included shooting adult men and boys together, or blindfolded and cutting their throats and cutting two 14-year-olds. The boy cut his throat and put it in his pocket and plunged into the river. He also asked the recruits to shoot the prisoners of war to”train his hands.” These brutal crimes of Australia have been strongly condemned and condemned by the international community.
Hua Chunying used four rhetorical questions in her next response. She said that the Australian side reacted so strongly to my colleague’s personal tweets to show that it is justified for Australian soldiers to coldly kill innocent civilians in Afghanistan, but is it unreasonable for some people to condemn this cold crime? The life of the Afghan people is also life. What the Australian government should do is to reflect deeply, bring the perpetrators to justice, make a formal apology to the Afghan people, and solemnly promise to the international community that they will never commit this terrible crime again. You just mentioned that he said that the Chinese government should feel ashamed, so is it an act of the Australian government to send Australian soldiers to Afghanistan? There are soldiers in Australia who have committed such atrocious crimes. Should the Australian government feel ashamed? Should they feel ashamed for their soldiers to kill innocent civilians in Afghanistan?
Subsequently, a reporter asked that the Chinese official media criticized Australian soldiers for killing Afghan civilians last week. Australia also criticized China’s human rights record this year. Is China’s position related to the tension between the two countries? If Australia did not criticize China, would China still criticize Australia’s handling of the matter?
After hearing the question, Hua Chunying asked the reporter whether its internal logic believed that China condemned Australian soldiers for the crime of killing innocent people in Afghanistan, which was related to the previous China-Australia relationship?
“I think you have over-interpreted it.” Hua Chunying said, I think that for Australian soldiers in Afghanistan so tortured innocent Afghan civilians, especially for such brutal methods to kill Afghan children, so The serious crimes of the People’s Republic of China are indignant. It does not mean that the Chinese family condemns it. All people and people with conscience should condemn it. This has nothing to do with the problems between China and Australia some time ago.”On this issue of right and wrong, you must be principled.”
Hua Chunying said that there have indeed been some problems between China and Australia in the recent period, but the root cause lies in Australia’s violation of basic international relations. The guidelines have taken wrong words and deeds on Hong Kong-related and Xinjiang-related issues involving China’s core interests. China has repeatedly stated our solemn and clear position on this issue. We hope that Australia can reflect on its own words and deeds and be able to truly recognize some of the differences that may exist between China and Australia in a spirit of mutual respect, and at the same time be able to face these issues directly.
After the press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs ended, at 17:40 on November 30th, Beijing time, Guan Video Studio released a video of the Wuhe Qilin on the official Weibo, and wrote:” After returning to Beijing from the end-of-year show, the Wuhe Qilin was killed by a small spoon and asked him what he thought of the incident in which Zhao Lijian posted his painting on Twitter today and was”hung up” by Australian Prime Minister Morrison? Wuhe Qilin:Then I will draw another one when I have time tonight.”
Wuhe Qilin said in the video:”I just got off the plane in Beijing. Let me show you the Capital Airport. Get off the plane. Later, I found out that it seemed that something happened. I was hung up by an Australian named Morrison, hoping to get my apology.”
Next, Wuhe Qilin said:”Me too I’m very embarrassed, I can understand Morrison’s current mood very well. But I still advise Morrison to face the reality and focus on domestic affairs, such as managing the discipline of his troops stationed abroad. In order to avoid another international tragedy, it can be regarded as a contribution to mankind, and less focus on condemning, and putting pressure on an ordinary painter in other countries, and putting pressure on creation based on facts.”
“I won’t say much here. I have been on the plane for a few hours and I am going home. If I have energy tonight, I might draw another picture and respond. Okay, goodbye everyone.”< /p>
In fact, at noon today, Wuhe Qilin also responded to this incident on his personal Weibo. He posted his own painting that caused Morrison’s”strong dissatisfaction” and wrote:”I heard that Mo has a lot of opinions on my picture?”
And about the background of the cartoonist Wuhe Qilin “introduced himself” in his personal Weibo profile like this:“Superman political come out painter, wolf painter, fan maggot, Jane Chinese artist.”
