China Slams Joint Statement of US and Japan: China has expressed its displeasure with the US and Japan. It has opposed the joint statement of the two countries on human rights, calling it a ‘malicious attack’ on its foreign policy and serious interference in China’s internal affairs. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said on Wednesday, “China is very dissatisfied with the statement and strongly opposes it.” Zhao’s remarks came a day before US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s meeting in Alaska with China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi and top foreign policy adviser Yang Jiechi.
US-Japan in its statement on threats to Taiwan, human rights violations by Beijing in Xinjiang, Xinjiang Human Rights Violations, activities of the South China Sea and Japan’s unilateral activities to change the status quo of the Japan-controlled East China Sea island Concern was expressed. Zhao said in his daily press conference, “The statement is a ‘malicious’ attack on China’s foreign policy, a serious attack on China’s internal affairs and its interests.”
China opposes the statement
He said, ‘China is completely dissatisfied with this statement and opposes it. We have expressed our opposition to the US and Japan. However, this statement does not indicate any fall in talks in Alaska. Zhao said that China is ready to discuss its policy on Xinjiang and Hong Kong. He said, “But before the US meeting, deliberately trying to confuse public opinion and pressurize China will not succeed.”
This call was made from America
Zhao said, “We will call on the American side to follow the suitability of China on International Relations and do not engage in acts that endanger China’s main interests.” On the other hand, the White House has said that it has no special expectations for Blinken and Sullivan’s meeting with China’s State Councillor Wang Yi on Thursday and Yang Jiechi, head of foreign affairs of the Communist Party of China.
