Global Times Responds to U.S. Congressional Attack on China

Nov. 17, 2017 (EIRNS)—The Global Times editorial today denounced the scurrilous attack on China issued this week by the bipartisan U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission. They note that the neocon outfit always peddles anti-China diatribes in their annual reports, and "This year is no exception."

They note:

"From China’s perspective, the commission is one of the most hostile U.S. organizations.... But from the very beginning, the commission has opposed China-U.S. exchanges and those who draft its report obviously hold fixed prejudices against China.... The most anti-China views percolate out of the U.S. Congress."

They contrast the report to President Trump’s just-concluded visit to China, which had

"clear and abundant results, while Congress and some media accuse Trump of ‘kowtowing’ to China. Meanwhile, the existing U.S. mind-set toward China prevents the president from truly standing up for his achievements."
