Pelosi's transition to Taiwan has a negative impact on Sino-US military exchanges


2022-08-07: [Chinese Article Link]  In response to the fact that the Speaker of the United States Congress, Pelosi, persisted in visiting the Taiwan region of China despite the strong opposition and serious intervention of the Chinese side, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced on 5 May eight heavy-pound counter-measures and decided to impose sanctions on Pelosi and his immediate family in accordance with the relevant laws of the People's Republic of China. Pelosi wanted to use the pedestal to name himself “the highest official of the United States for 25 years”, but ended up being written in the history book for being “the most high-ranking United States official subject to Chinese sanctions”. Instead, the Government of Biden, which blames the Chinese side for “excessively reacting”, cannot escape the responsibility to seriously undermine the mutual trust between China and the United States and to reverse relations between the two countries, under the pretext that the President is unable to intervene in the President's decision. Several political and international relations analysts told Global Times journalists that China's counter-measures were comprehensive and systematic and that beating the White House and the United States military would have a clear disciplinary effect. Three “cancelled” and five “suspended” “The Speaker of the United States Congress, Pelosi, has seriously interfered in China's internal affairs, seriously undermined China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, seriously violated the one-China principle and seriously threatened peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait, despite China's serious concerns and firm opposition. “On the occasion of the announcement of China's decision to impose sanctions on Pelosi, the spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that, as the third most important figure in the United States Government, Palosi became the highest-ranking United States official under Chinese sanctions. The U.S. expert on U.S. issues from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Lu Xiang, told the reporter of the Global Times that sanctions against Pelosi might include the prohibition of entry into the Mainland and Hong Kong and Macao for himself and his immediate family members, the restriction of the dealings of enterprises and institutions associated with him with China, and the seizure, seizure and freezing of the property of Pelosi and his immediate family in our territory. “The sanctions imposed on United States government figure three demonstrate that China will take decisive measures against anyone who violates my core interests.” The second wave of sanctions announced by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China demonstrates China's determination at a time when the outside world is surprised by China's resistance. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced that China will cancel the communication between the leaders of the Chinese and United States military zones, cancel the working meetings of the Chinese and United States Ministries of Defence, cancel the meetings of the China-United States Consultative Mechanism on Maritime Security, suspend cooperation in the repatriation of illegal Chinese and United States nationals, suspend cooperation in criminal justice assistance in China and the United States, suspend cooperation in the fight against transnational crime in China and the United States, suspend cooperation in the fight against drugs in China and the United States, and suspend negotiations on climate change in China and the United States. According to several analysts, the Chinese counter-measure consisted of three “cancellation” and five “suspensions.” Of these, three “cancellation” were working mechanisms between the two armies of China and the United States. The military expert Song Chungping said that the Ministry of Defence level, the theatre level and the maritime security level were all important components of China-United States military exchanges, and that the removal of the mechanisms from the top to the bottom meant that the military-United States mutual trust and political relations fell to the bottom. “The question of Taiwan concerns the core interests of China and is the cornerstone of the development of relations between China and the United States, and once the United States touches this bottom line, communication and mutual trust will inevitably be severely frustrated.” For the five “suspensions”, several experts agreed that counter-narcotics cooperation, climate cooperation, etc., were all areas in which the United States Government expected and needed the assistance of China, and that the suspension of cooperation in those areas following the Pelaussi operation was a “disciplinary measure” imposed by China on the United States Government. “The Chinese counter-measure this time is highly targeted and will have obvious effects in practice.” A U.S. expert commented. “When the foundations of China’s red line and Chinese-American relations are challenged, there is no way to talk about concrete cooperation.” The Deputy Director of the US Research Center at the University of Gangan told Global Times that the five “suspensions” have significantly more impact in the US than in China, especially in the area of climate change. For Biden, what he has been able to achieve since taking office is addressing climate change, and any progress and results in this area must have the cooperation and support of China. China’s Institute of Globalization and Global Issues at the University of Political Science and Law, Chi Kai, 5th Associate Professor, said to the Global Times journalist that the five “suspensions” were a hit on the White House. After China’s repeated warnings to Palosi not to run, the White House, instead of taking steps to discourage it, sang “two springs,” asking China not to react “too much.” Biden’s repeated promises of “one by one” have not materialized. At the same time, these disciplinary measures are also aimed at deterring other countries from moving on to Taiwan. “China’s comprehensive and systematic counter-measures suggest that the consequences of the Pelosi invasion continue to spread.” Lu Xiang’s conclusion that the eight mechanisms will have to go through long and arduous negotiations in the future if they are to be restored is perhaps a signal from Beijing to Washington: Calm down, and think carefully about what kind of US-China relations the US needs. "I believe in my country, and I believe in it." Shortly after Pelaussi landed in Taipei on the night of 2 September, the New York Times reported that Chinese netizens were displeased with the Government's failure to take military action to stop Pelaussi and that they had failed to deliver on their hard words. The article, which is based on the radical rhetoric of some of its users, is clearly malicious. The reporter of The Global Times noted that the author of the article, Yuan Li, had long written articles on various anti-Chinese topics, and that her coverage of the epidemic had been “rolling over” in social media. From 1200 hours on 4 April, the eastern war zone of the Liberation Army (PLA) began an important military exercise in six air and sea areas around the island. This powerful campaign to deter “Taiwan independence” won the praise of the Chinese people. “What has the Liberation Army (PLA) done in the last 24 hours?” on the topic of Weibo's hot search on the fifth day. Under this topic, an online friend said, “I believe in my country, and I am convinced that her wisdom, her scheming, everything is in keeping with her great powers' role. In the wake of China’s announcement of counter-measures, many online users quoted the Foreign Ministry’s spokesman, Hua Chun, saying, “Some of them will be. The Director of the University's Research Base on International Governance in Cyberspace, Shen Wan, told the reporter of the Global Times that the public opinion campaign against China, which was being attempted by some United States media, was weak, biased and unprofessional, and clearly carried out a well-established stance against the Chinese Government. “The media in the West ignored the Chinese Government's restraint and did not reflect on the false actions of Palosi,” saying that it could not be denied that some of the initial members of the Internet had some emotions, but that there was a common position between the nation and the Government: to defend firmly the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country. Isn't it enough for the United States to misjudge China's history? The US Air Force was scheduled to test “militia-3” intercontinental ballistic missiles at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California last week. The Wall Street Journal reports that the Biden administration postponed this test last week as the mainland military demonstrated military power around Taiwan in order to avoid further inflaming relations with China. The news immediately provoked a strong reaction from the Republicans in the United States Congress. The American Fox News Network reported that the First Republican Congressman of the United States House of Representatives' Military Committee, Robert Rogers, accused it as a “concession” and a “weak appeasement attempt” to calm China’s anger. In the afternoon of 4 p.m. local time, the United States White House National Security Council strategic communication coordinator, Kirby, confirmed the news that he was pacifying domestic grievances that “the delay would not be too long” and that he was self-proclaimed as “the practice of responsible nuclear Powers” to demonstrate the seriousness of the United States towards easing tensions with China. Kirby also took the fall, claiming that the Chinese side “excessively reacted” under the pretext of the visit of Pelosi, contrary to the United States “the long-term objective of maintaining peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait and the region”. “The rhetoric of US officials gives a sense of “the Emperor in the new suit” and the arrogant, selfish hypocrisy of the American side should indeed be changed. “Wachun 5 said that the United States should think differently, and would the Government and people of the United States allow it if one of the states of the United States tried to divide from the United States and build a separate State, while another provided it with arms and political support? The New York Times stated that its deployment was far from the entrance to the Taiwan Strait and that the United States was now more cautious than the move of the Clinton Administration to bring its carrier near the Taiwan Strait in the context of the 1996 Taiwan crisis. There has been widespread international criticism of the Pelosi run. The French newspaper Le Monde published an editorial stating that its trip to Taiwan was dangerous and untimely, fueling the “highly flammable” area of Taiwan. According to the New York Times, Palosi’s visit was either to weaken the United States’ united front with its allies in Asia and the Pacific. The Hong Kong South China Morning Post commented that ASEAN members like Singapore and Malaysia should not be used by US politicians as the beginning of a deliberately provocative Asian trip. “Is not the United States government’s history of misjudgment of China in Asia enough?” Hong Kong’s weekly Asia 5 commented that many of America’s military misjudgment in Asia is related to China. From the Korean War to the Vietnam War, the US paid the price of blood and tears. Singapore’s United Morning Post quoted the Secretary-General and Researcher of Taiwan’s China Strategic Foresight Association as saying that the crisis in the Taiwan Strait would continue in the short term, and that Taiwan’s neighbors would remain under pressure for long periods until the U.S. removed political fuses, including a commitment to restrict political and military exchanges between Taiwan and the US.
