The Foreign Affairs Committee of the National People’s Congress issued a statement on the passage of the”American Innovation and Competition Act of 2021″ by the US Senate
Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, June 9th. On June 9th, the US Congress approved by the Senate. The 2021 American Innovation and Competition Act”, the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National People’s Congress issued a statement stating that the Act is full of Cold War mentality and ideological prejudice, slander China’s development path and domestic and foreign policies, and interfere in China’s internal affairs under the banner of”innovation and competition.” Contain China’s development. The National People’s Congress of China expressed strong dissatisfaction and resolute opposition to this.
The statement pointed out that the bill attempts to exaggerate the so-called”China threat” to maintain the US’s global hegemony, interfere in China’s internal affairs under the pretext of human rights religion, and deprive China of its right to development through technology and economic decoupling. The bill shows that the paranoid delusion of egoism distorts the original intention of innovation and competition. Against the background that the world is entering a period of turbulent change, the practice of treating China as an”imaginary enemy” is against the general trend of the world, unpopular and doomed to failure.
The statement emphasized that the Taiwan issue concerns China’s national sovereignty and territorial integrity. Involving China’s core interests. The Taiwan-related provisions of the bill seriously violate the one-China principle and the provisions of the three Sino-US joint communiqués. We firmly oppose any form of official exchanges between the United States and Taiwan. Xinjiang, Tibet, Hong Kong and other affairs are purely China’s internal affairs and will not tolerate any foreign interference .
The statement emphasized that China adheres to the path of peaceful development. The Chinese people’s right to pursue a better life is sacred and inviolable. No forces should expect China to swallow the bitter fruit that harms China’s sovereignty, security, and development interests. China has always been committed to building a Sino-US relationship that is non-conflict, non-confrontational, mutual respect, and win-win cooperation. We strongly urge the U.S. Congress to treat China’s development and Sino-U.S. relations in an objective and rational manner, and immediately stop advancing the review of this bill. Stop interfering in China’s internal affairs so as not to undermine the overall situation of China-US relations and cooperation in important areas between the two sides. (End)
