Defaming China only exposes hypocrisy of some U.S. politicians

By Zhong Sheng (People's Daily)    10:09, November 04, 2019

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's comments targeting Beijing and the Communist Party of China (CPC) were a vicious attack aimed at smearing and defaming China. What Pompeo said reflected some U.S. politicians' deep-rooted political prejudice and dark anti-CPC mentality.

While speaking at the Hudson Institute on Wednesday, the U.S. politician said that China and the CPC “are using methods that have created challenges for the United States and the world.”

Such stories about China fabricated by some U.S. politicians in an attempt to demonize the country reflect astounding Cold-War mentality.

When it comes to China, Pompeo never fails to give negative remarks that are totally inconsistent with reality and the truth. He is active to stir up ideological confrontations and couldn’t tolerate China choosing a development path suitable to its actual conditions.

Pompeo claimed that he hopes to see China prosper and advance, and that the U.S. doesn’t seek to confront China, but the reality is that he has never stopped lodging groundless accusations against China’s domestic affairs.

The hypocrisy of some U.S. politicians is seen through when they act in an uncivilized way that shows no respect for other countries. Pompeo’s remarks are ridiculous and reveal his arrogance.

The CPC, which always represents and safeguards the fundamental interests of the Chinese people, has worked untiringly for the independence, liberation, prosperity and rejuvenation of the country.

When it comes to China’s development and governance, no one is in a better position to judge than the 1.4 billion Chinese people, and people around the world with a sense of justice will also make fair judgments.

The Chinese people have found a suitable development path for China based on the country’s national conditions and made remarkable achievements under the leadership of the CPC since the founding of the People's Republic of China 70 years ago.

China is the world’s second largest economy. It has lifted more than 800 million people out of poverty, is home to the world’s largest middle-income earners, ranks among the top of the world’s economies in terms of economic growth and has remained the largest contributor to global economic growth for years.

Facts have proved that the Chinese path is a right path that conforms to the national conditions of China, and a path that could inspire other countries. Any attempt to obstruct China’s stability and development is doomed to fail.

Showing no respect for international justice, Pompeo frequently instigated hostility between China and other countries. His evil intentions should be despised by the international community.

China remains firm in pursuing an independent foreign policy of peace. It is committed to fostering a new type of international relations, building a community with a shared future for mankind, and upholding international justice.

The country has established diplomatic relations with 180 countries and its circle of friends is growing. The joint construction of the Belt and Road has made great achievements and benefited people in relevant countries. The campaign also enjoys active and wide participation from the international community.

China has pledged to continue to expand opening up and promote win-win cooperation with countries in the world. The strong foundation of friendship and mutual benefit cannot be destroyed by any people through any means.

China-U.S. relations are one of the most important bilateral relations in the world. History and reality have fully proved that the two sides both benefit from cooperation and lose in confrontation.

The world expects that the U.S. policy toward China is based on reality and rationality, and should not be led astray by political paranoia and strategic misjudgment.

It should be noted that any provocative words and deeds are wrong or even dangerous when China-U.S. relations are at a critical stage. The only proper way for the two countries to get along with each other is to practice mutual respect and seek common ground while reserving differences.

We suggest certain people in the U.S. abandon arrogance and prejudice, stop improper actions and follow the principles and directions set by the heads of state of China and the United States to expand cooperation based on reciprocity and mutual benefit and manage differences based on mutual respect, so as to jointly advance China-U.S. relations with coordination, cooperation and stability as the defining features.
