Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Thursday that #China will set up a fund to help #PacificIsland countries defeat the COVID-19 pandemic, when attending the first China-Pacific Island Countries Foreign Ministers' Meeting in Beijing via video link.
The Chinese government continues to cover for the Myanmar junta. Beijing insisted on revising last week's UN Human Rights council resolution to remove calls to bolster a UN rights expert's ability to investigate the army's human rights violations.
Beijing pretends it stands with the people of Myanmar, but each night for more than a week unregistered flights have been transporting unknown goods and personnel from China to Myanmar. The junta "is trying very hard to hide the flights."
The sweeping arrests of pro-democracy demonstrators are an assault on those bravely advocating for universal rights. The Biden-Harris administration will stand with the people of Hong Kong and against Beijing’s crackdown on democracy.
The brutal purpose of Beijing’s so-called “national security” law is to frighten, intimidate & suppress the speech of Hong Kongers. All freedom-loving people must come together to condemn this law, which signals the death of the “one country, two systems” principle.
Beijing’s announcement of yet another attempt to bring an end to the “one country, two systems” framework in #HongKong is deeply alarming. Attempting to circumvent the HK legislature shows a complete disrespect for the rule of law.
