Some representatives of the United States leadership have sought to formulate a national security strategy on the basis of unsound considerations and see everything as a manifestation of “pervasive hostile forces”. This was stated on Monday by Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Heng Shuang.
“With regard to some individuals in the United States (who have spoken out unjustifiably harshly about China in formulating national security policy), I would like to point out that they are constantly in a state of panic, which they themselves are sowing. They are ready to see the enemy in everything for no apparent reason,” he said at a regular briefing.
According to the diplomat, the current era of globalization is characterized by a continuous process of international specialization, which has recently taken on unprecedented proportions. “Attempts to ensure one’s own “absolute security” through such isolationist measures are indeed unthinkably detached from reality,” said Hong Shuang.
On May 15, U.S. President Donald Trump signed a decree establishing a state of emergency to protect the information and communications technology infrastructure of the United States from external threats. As a result, the U.S. Department of Commerce blacklisted China’s Huawei Corporation on May 17 because of the threat to national security.
In August last year, Trump signed a decree banning U.S. agencies from using equipment produced by Huawei and the Chinese company ZTE. The leadership of Huawei called such a decision an infringement of the U.S. on the legitimate rights of Chinese enterprises, adding that thus Washington condemned itself to lag behind in the deployment of the 5G network.
