Original title: Blinken issued a statement accusing China of imposing sanctions on US personnel, Wang Wenbin refuted

  [环球时报-环球网报道 记者 乌元春]At the regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on January 11, a reporter asked: On January 10, US Secretary of State Blinken issued a statement accusing China of unreasonably sanctioning the head of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom and relevant members, and claimed that Xinjiang Genocide and crimes against humanity are still going on. What is China‘s comment on this?

Spokesman Wang Wenbin said that the so-called “genocide” and “crimes against humanity” in Xinjiang are lies of the century fabricated by some people in the United States. The US has repeatedly spread rumors and slanders, aiming to smear China‘s image and curb China‘s development, but their conspiracy will not succeed. In the past few years, under the guise of democracy, human rights, and religion, the US has unreasonably conducted unilateral actions against dozens of Chinese officials and various institutions on issues concerning China‘s sovereignty and territorial integrity, such as Xinjiang and Hong Kong, in accordance with US domestic law. Sanctions, relevant actions interfere in China‘s internal affairs and seriously harm China‘s interests. China has carried out counter-sanctions in accordance with the law, which is a move to safeguard its own sovereignty, security and development interests. We will continue to take all necessary measures to safeguard national sovereignty and dignity and our legitimate rights and interests.

  [环球网报道]In December last year, China took reciprocal countermeasures, announcing sanctions on four members of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom. On January 10, local time, U.S. Secretary of State Blinken issued a statement in response to this. It is not surprising that Blinken’s wording is still as old-fashioned as ever, claiming to “stand with these people”.

The US State Department published Blinken’s statement on its official website on the 10th. In his statement, Blinken claimed that China‘s sanctions were “unreasonable” and that the United States “remains not intimidated by these actions” and is “committed to defending human rights around the world.” The statement ended by repeating Blinken’s “classic” line that has almost become a joke: “We stand with and stand with those who speak out for human rights and fundamental freedoms, including freedom of religion or belief.”

I have to say that Blinken can really reverse black and white. It is clear that the United States is constantly wielding the sanctions stick and provoking everywhere. In fact, the direct cause of China‘s announcement of sanctions on December 21, 2021: The US State Department and the Treasury Department announced on December 10 that they would impose sanctions on four Chinese officials for so-called “human rights violations” in Xinjiang in accordance with US domestic law.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said at the time that the U.S. illegally sanctioned Chinese officials in accordance with U.S. domestic law under the pretext of the so-called “human rights issue in Xinjiang.” The relevant actions seriously interfere in China‘s internal affairs, seriously violate the basic norms of international relations, and seriously damage China-US relations. China firmly opposes and strongly condemns it.

It is precisely in response to the above-mentioned wrong actions of the United States that China has decided to take reciprocal countermeasures in accordance with China‘s “Anti-Foreign Sanctions Law”. Carl countered accordingly. Countermeasures include prohibiting the above-mentioned persons from entering China, including the mainland, Hong Kong and Macau, freezing their property in China, and prohibiting Chinese citizens and institutions from doing business with them.

Regarding the Xinjiang issue, Zhao Lijian pointed out at the time that Xinjiang affairs are purely China‘s internal affairs, and the US has no right or right to interfere. The US should lift the so-called sanctions and stop interfering in Xinjiang affairs and China‘s internal affairs. China will make further responses as the situation develops.
