Over 200,000 foreigners vaccinated against COVID-19 in China


2021-06-11 浏览

More than 200,000 foreigners in China have been vaccinated against COVID-19, a foreign ministry spokesperson said on Thursday.

Spokesperson Wang Wenbin made the remarks at a press briefing in response to a question regarding how China is facilitating COVID-19 vaccination for foreigners in the country.

"The Chinese government attaches great importance to maintaining and safeguarding the safety and health of foreigners in China," the spokesperson said.

In order to protect foreigners working, living and studying in China and build an effective immune barrier to the greatest extent, China has included the eligible age group among foreigners in the country into the scope of inoculation with domestic vaccines, he said.

Local governments have adopted a slew of measures including creating online booking channels, issuing multilingual registration applications and dispatching foreign language-speaking volunteers to make it easier for foreigners to get vaccinated, Wang added.

Over 824.8 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines had been administered across China as of Wednesday.

US tech bill that hampers China's growth slammed


2021-06-10 浏览

China has denounced a US bill intended to boost the country's ability to compete with Chinese technology, calling it a thinly veiled attack on China's political system and an attempt to hinder its development.

The foreign affairs committee of China's national legislature on Wednesday voiced its strong dissatisfaction with and opposition to the US Senate's approval of "the United States Innovation and Competition Act of 2021."

The bill, full of ideological prejudice and driven by a Cold War mentality, smears and slanders China's development path and foreign and domestic policies, interferes in China's internal affairs and attempts to contain China's development under the banner of "innovation and competition," the committee said in a statement.

The US Senate voted 68-32 on Tuesday to approve the package of legislation authorizing about US$190 billion for provisions to strengthen US technology and research. It would separately approve spending US$54 billion to increase US production and research into semiconductors and telecommunications equipment, including US$2 billion dedicated to chips used by automakers that have seen massive shortages and made significant production cuts.

China's legislature said the bill attempts to maintain the US global hegemony by fanning the so-called China threat, to interfere in China's internal affairs on the pretext of human rights and religion, and to take away China's legitimate right to development by means of "decoupling" in the scientific, technological and economic areas.

The bill shows that the paranoid delusion of seeking unilateral dominance has distorted the purpose of innovation and competition, the statement noted.

The world is entering a period of turbulence and transformation, and against this backdrop, the practice of continuously targeting China as a hypothetical enemy goes against the world trend, is unpopular and is doomed to fail, it said.

The bill must pass the House of Representatives to be sent to the White House for US President Joe Biden to sign into law. It is not clear what legislation in the House will look like or when it might take it up.

The bill has a number of other China-related provisions including prohibiting the social media app TikTok from being downloaded on government devices, and would block the purchase of drones manufactured and sold by companies backed by the Chinese government. It includes provisions expressing support for Taiwan, references to Hong Kong, and criticism of Chinese policy in the northwestern region of Xinjiang.

The bill would also create broad new mandatory sanctions on Chinese entities "engaged in US cyberattacks or theft of US intellectual property from US firms," and provides for a review of export controls on items that "could be used to support human rights abuses."

Stressing that the Taiwan question concerns China's national sovereignty and territorial integrity and concerns China's core interests, the statement said the Taiwan-related articles of the bill severely violate the one-China principle and the provisions of the three China-US joint communiques.

"We resolutely oppose any official exchanges between the United States and Taiwan," the statement said. "Issues related to Xinjiang, Tibet and Hong Kong are purely China's internal affairs that allow no foreign interference."

The bill's passage comes days after Biden expanded a list of Chinese companies whose shares are off-limits to American investors.

Biden to announce major COVID-19 vaccine sharing plan


2021-06-10 浏览

Joe Biden triumphantly announced "the United States is back!" as he kicked off his first overseas tour as US president, urging global collaboration and consensus to rebuild after COVID-19 and reset diplomatic ties after the divisive isolation of the Trump era.

His multilateral charm offensive began even before he touched down in England for a packed week that takes in a G7 leaders' meeting, summits with NATO and the European Union, and talks with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

On the way, Biden's national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, told reporters aboard Air Force One that the president would kick things off with news of a major vaccine-sharing initiative.

Sullivan would not give full details, but US media reports said the Biden administration is set to buy 500 million doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine for international distribution.

The Group of Seven will make a further joint declaration on "a comprehensive plan to help end this pandemic as rapidly as possible," he said.

'Tight' transatlantic ties

US armed forces personnel stationed at British Royal Air Force base Mildenhall in eastern England gave Biden, 78, and his wife, Jill, a raucous welcome after the presidential jet touched down.

The US leader is due to meet with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday.

He will attend the G7 gathering in a Cornish seaside resort from Friday to Sunday, alongside the leaders of Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan.

Then, in rapid succession, he will visit Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle and fly to Brussels for summits with the NATO military alliance on Monday and the European Union on Tuesday.

He will finish in Geneva to meet Putin next Wednesday.

With the world still crawling out from under the wreckage of COVID-19, Biden has cast his diplomatic marathon as a return to US leadership.

At RAF Mildenhall, he quoted the Irish poet WB Yeats' "Easter 1916" – about the Irish rebellion against British rule – to sum up how the world had been "transformed utterly" by the global health crisis.

Biden's pitch marks a return to traditional US diplomacy after four years during which his predecessor Donald Trump flirted with autocrats and recast multilateralism as a dirty word.

At his meeting with Putin, Biden said he would "let him know what I want him to know," to loud cheers.

'Wind at back'

However, some European partners, stung by Trump, may be sceptical about his pledge.

EU trade commissioner Valdis Dombrovskis called on the US to "walk the talk" when it comes to resolving lingering Trump-era trade disputes.

And there was friction last month when Washington blocked French attempts at the United Nations to demand a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.

Biden's ramping up of vaccine donations also follows what critics saw as a long period of hoarding.

Macron slapped in the face while greeting crowd


2021-06-09 浏览

French President Emmanuel Macron was slapped in the face while greeting a crowd in southeast France on Tuesday, in a shock incident he shrugged off as "isolated" but which drew widespread condemnation in a tense political climate.

Video footage on social media shows Macron approach a barrier to meet and shake hands with voters, where a man in a green T-shirt takes hold of his forearm before slapping him.

At the same time, someone can be heard shouting an old French royalist battle cry, and "Down with Macronism."

Macron's bodyguards quickly intervened and two people were detained after the incident in the village of Tain l'Hermitage, local officials said.

"At around 1:15pm (11:15am GMT) the president got into his car after visiting a high school, but got back out because onlookers were calling to him," the prefecture for the Drome region said.

"He went to meet them and that's when the incident took place."

Two 28-year-old men living in the region are being questioned, said local prosecutor Alex Perrin. But "at this stage of questioning, their motives remain unknown."

The incident took place in a tense and increasingly polarized political climate in France, weeks ahead of regional elections and less than a year before presidential polls.

In an interview with the Dauphine Libere newspaper, Macron insisted he was unafraid and would continue to meet people in this way.

"I am doing fine. We must put this incident, which I think is an isolated event, into perspective," he said.

He added: "Let's not let isolated events, ultra-violent individuals ... take hold of the public debate: They do not merit it."

Election tour

The assault sparked outrage across the political spectrum and overshadowed what Macron has billed as a listening tour to "take the country's pulse."

"Politics can never be violence, verbal aggression, much less physical aggression," Prime Minister Jean Castex told parliament, adding that "through the president, it is democracy that has been targeted."

Macron continued meeting the public, alongside his wife Brigitte.

"I always seek out contact, within shouting distance, as I say. I want it," he said afterward.

He described the slapping as "stupidity – and when stupidity combines with violence, it is unacceptable."

In the video someone can be heard shouting "Montjoie Saint Denis!," a medieval battle cry associated with fringe right-wingers who want France to return to being a monarchy. The phrase also features in the 1993 hit French comedy "Les Visiteurs."

One of the men arrested appears to practice medieval combat, according to an Instagram account in his name.

Macron, who remains a highly divisive figure, is widely expected to seek a second term in next year's presidential elections. Polls show him with a narrow lead over far-right leader Marine Le Pen.

His nationwide tour includes around a dozen stops over the next two months, with the former investment banker keen to meet voters in person after more than a year of COVID-19 crisis management.

Chinese ambassador calls for sound, steady development of China-Britain relations


2021-06-08 浏览

Chinese Ambassador to Britain Zheng Zeguang on Monday called for sound and steady development of China-Britain relations, so as to benefit the peoples of the two countries and beyond.

In an online video remarks released on Monday after his arrival in London, Zheng said that it is essential that China and Britain respect each other's core interests and major concerns.

He noted that both sides should deepen cooperation in trade, finance, innovation, people-to-people exchanges and other fields, and step up coordination on global issues such as fighting against COVID-19, spurring global recovery and tackling climate change.

Both sides also need to address their differences properly and contribute to world peace and common development, he added.

In a welcoming message on the website of the Chinese embassy in Britain, Zheng said that Chinese and British peoples have a long history of extensive interactions.

Both countries are permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, which have significant global influence, he said.

China stands ready to work with Britain to enhance their exchanges, expand cooperation and handle differences in "an appropriate manner under the principles of mutual respect, equality, inclusiveness and mutual learning," he said.

A sound China-Britain relationship is not only in the fundamental interests of both countries and peoples, but also conducive to world peace, stability and development, said Zheng.

China, he said, will continue to hold high the banner of peace, development and win-win cooperation, expand friendly cooperation with all countries on the basis of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, and promote the building of a new type of international relations and a community with a shared future for mankind.

A veteran diplomat with rich experience born in 1963, Zheng studied in Cardiff University from 1986 to 1987.

He recalled that as a student in Britain 35 years ago, he saw there were only several hundreds Chinese students here, while this figure has exceeded 200,000, which is yet another proof of the keen interest of the two peoples for closer exchanges and cooperation.

China and Britain, he observed, should make greater efforts to pave the way for more interactions, build stronger bridges of cooperation and lay a more solid foundation of friendship between the two peoples.
