According to a story by Kyodo News on January 7th, 2022, it talks about how Japanese and U.S. foreign and defense chiefs recently shared their concerns about China’s attempts to “undermine the rules-based order” and challenges they pose to the region and world, vowing to cooperate in deterring and responding to “destabilizing activities.” In a joint statement issued after their virtual “two-plus-two” talks, the ministers highlighted the “importance of peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait” while opposing any unilateral actions threatening Japan’s administration of the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea, controlled by Japan but claimed by China.
Japan’s Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi, Defense Minister Nobuo Kishi, and their U.S. counterparts Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin also expressed “serious and ongoing concerns” about human rights issues in China’s far-western Xinjiang autonomous region and Hong Kong. It is getting increasingly more difficult to do business and even communicate with communist China as they continue to rape, torture, imprison and even kill the Uyghur Muslim population in Xinjiang as well as persecute the Falun Gong and harvest their organs which they sell around the world.
The teleconference came as concerns have been increasing over an escalation of Beijing’s maritime assertiveness in the East and South China seas and stepped-up military pressure on Taiwan, as well as the missile and nuclear threats posed by North Korea, which fired what it claims was a newly developed hypersonic missile on Wednesday 5th.
The human rights issues in China have recently drawn attention as major democracies such as the United States and Britain announced a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics next month, citing what Washington says is China’s “genocide” against the Muslim Uyghur minority in Xinjiang.
It is more difficult to turn a blind eye to what is going on in mainland China and hopefully next month many countries will boycott the Beijing Winter Genocide Olympic Games in protest of the brutality that is dished out on a daily basis to millions of people in China.
