China is the world’s largest emitter of environmental pollution including of greenhouse gases and the exploitation of natural resources around the globe.  Today, the United States again took action by imposing sanctions on the People’s Republic of China (PRC) state-owned Union Development Group, Ltd. (UDG) under Executive Order (E.O.) 13818, which builds upon and implements the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act, for its role in corrupt activities in Cambodia.

中國是世界上最大的環境污染排放國,其污染包括了溫室氣體以及在全球範圍開採自然資源帶來的污染。 今天,美國再次採取行動,依據第13818號行政命令(E.O.),對中華人民共和國(PRC)的國有企業-優聯發展集團有限公司 (UDG)-實施制裁,該行政命令的構建和實施基於全球馬格尼茨基人權責任法案,針對該公司在柬埔寨從事腐敗活動的事實。

Today’s action demonstrates how the Chinese Communist Party coopts companies to expand its influence, including by working through corrupt officials to use military force against innocent people in a blatant attempt to secure illicit financial gains.  There are credible reports that the coastal development project at Dara Sakor could be used to host PRC military assets, and if so would go against Cambodia’s Constitution and could threaten Indo-Pacific stability, possibly impacting Cambodia’s sovereignty and the security of our allies.

今天的行動印證了中國共產黨是如何通過收買當地公司以擴大其影響力,包括通過與腐敗官員合作來對無辜民眾使用武力,公然試圖獲取非法經濟利益。可信的報告表明,七星海 (Dara Sakor) 的沿海開發專案可能被用於託管中國的軍事資產,此種做法會違反柬埔寨的憲法,並可能給印度洋-太平洋地區的穩定帶來威脅,可能會影響到柬埔寨的主權和我們盟友的安全。

The government of Cambodia granted UDG a 99-year lease in 2008 for the development of the Dara Sakor project on a site that encompasses almost 20 percent of the country’s coastline. UDG was founded as a wholly-owned PRC corporation, but became a Cambodian enterprise in order to receive the lease for nearly 90,000 acres of land.  The company then went back to being PRC-owned after acquisition of the lease and resulting land.

柬埔寨政府於2008年授予優聯發展集團有限公司一份99年的租賃合約,用於開發七星海專案,該專案覆蓋了柬埔寨近20%的海岸線。優聯發展集團有限公司本是中國國有企業,但為了獲得近9萬英畝土地的租賃權,它變成了一家柬埔寨企業。在取得租約和相應的土地後,該公司又恢復為中國國有企業性質。

In conjunction with a former Cambodian Army official, the Cambodian military cleared the leased land by force using violent tactics. Then Royal Cambodian Armed Forces chief of staff, Kun Kim (Kim), reaped significant financial benefit from this relationship with UDG.  Kim was previously designated by the United States for his role in corruption under the Global Magnitsky sanctions program in December 2019.  The land in question is also considered part of Botum Sakor National Park, a protected natural area.

柬埔寨軍方與一名前柬埔寨軍官合作,使用暴力手段強行清理租賃的土地。時任柬埔寨皇家武裝部隊參謀長的金昆 (Kim) 從與優聯發展集團有限公司的交易中攫取了巨額經濟利益。 此前,Kim已經因其腐敗行為,於2019年12月被美國依據全球馬格尼茨基制裁專案予以制裁。 該片爭議土地同時被認為是波洞沙果 (Botum Sakor) 國家公園的一部分,屬於自然保護區。

The United States stands with the Cambodian people and calls on the world to join us in condemning corruption and environmental degradation.

美國與柬埔寨人民站在一起,並呼籲全世界加入我們,共同譴責腐敗和導致環境惡化的行為。

美國最失敗的就是丟掉了東南亞,拱手讓給了CCP!基辛格政策救了CCP,做了CCP幾十年的VVIP,帶偏了美國,幾乎丟掉了美國建國的根本,世界到了天翻地覆改天換地的時候了,摒棄以基辛格為首的華爾街資本權貴與CCP紅色權貴勾結統治世界的權貴壟斷資本階層,回歸本源,回歸正道。
