IPSEs IN THE LAST 24H
  • Volker Türk
    Volker Türk “Russia's full-scale armed attack on Ukraine, which is about to enter its third year with no end in sight, continues to cause serious and widespread human rights violations, destroying lives and livelihoods. The invasion has exacted a horrific human cost, inflicting immense suffering on millions of civilians.” 1 hour ago
  • Tymofiy Mylovanov
    Tymofiy Mylovanov “In 2022, the [US] administration [of Joe Biden] submitted funding requests in the spring, almost immediately after the invasion. But in 2023, it waited until mid-fall to announce what it plans to submit. Avdiivka demonstrates the cost of these political delays: human lives, lost territory, and encouraged Russia. If that's the plan 'to be with Ukraine as long as it takes', then the US delays in aid have just prolonged the war.” 3 hours ago
  • Dmytro Kuleba
    Dmytro Kuleba “The era of peace in Europe is over. And every time Ukrainian soldiers withdraw from a Ukrainian town because of the lack of ammunition, think of it not only in terms of democracy and defending the world-based order, but also in terms of Russian soldiers getting a few kilometres closer to your towns.” 3 hours ago

“These trips have considerable significance for preventing any further escalation of hostilities, especially as election year rhetoric in the U.S. ramps up. I think both sides are very eager to tamp down any further escalation of hostilities.”

“We've never shied away from calling it like we see it when it comes to [China's] behaviour, intimidation and coercion of not only their neighbours but countries around the world. This is a difficult, complex bilateral relationship, the most consequential one in the world. The president understands that. But that doesn't mean there isn't still a need to continue to improve our lines of communication.”

“The US and China have significant disagreements. But President [Joe] Biden and I do not see the relationship between the US and China through the frame of great power conflict. We believe that the world is big enough for both of our countries to thrive. No one visit will solve our challenges overnight. But I expect that this trip will help build a resilient and productive channel of communication.”

“Washington and its allies have sought to suppress China's tech sector with no regard for the potential damage the technological iron curtain may cause to global supply and industrial chains. But now the question is how long Washington can ignore the warning over the consequences when China starts taking legitimate and reasonable measures to safeguard its national security and interests. Compared with the US pressuring allies to cooperate on chip bans against China, China's move this time may be more of a warning, showing that China will not be passively squeezed out of the global semiconductor supply chain.”

“To have dispatched an advanced fighter jet to shoot down a balloon with a missile, such behaviour is unbelievable, almost hysterical... What we hope for from the US is a pragmatic and positive approach to China that allows us to work together.”

“The balloon was 60m (200 ft) tall with a jetliner size payload. The PRC's irresponsible actions were visible for the American people and all of the world to see. Ultimately, we were able to collect intelligence from the balloon; we are recovering its contents; and we sent a clear message to the PRC that activities such as this [are] unacceptable.”

“You can get a lot of visual information from a satellite, but somewhere as far north as [the state of] Montana, a satellite only has a few seconds of time over the target whereas a balloon has more time. The second thing a balloon would be capable of doing would be gathering electronic signals, so it could intercept communications. If we do recover [the balloon] and it does prove to be surveillance stuff, I think there will be some public display of that. This will be further embarrassment for the Chinese.”

“China is the world's second-largest economy, its largest manufacturer, and its largest trader. It will be a big part of the global financial picture for decades to come. Instead of fatalistically accepting the descent of an economic iron curtain, Washington should negotiate aggressively with China to win opportunities for Americans in its market. Administration officials should have serious discussions with Chinese leadership about how to manage the decoupling in a way that allows for mutually beneficial trade. Right now, the two countries are mostly trading charges and countercharges while doing nothing to expand mutually beneficial economic opportunities.”

“Despite China's opposition, the US passed and signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023, which contains negative content concerning China. China deplores and firmly opposes this US move, and has made serious démarches to the US. This Act, in total disregard of facts, hypes up the 'China threat' narrative, blatantly interferes in China's internal affairs, and attacks and discredits the Communist Party of China (CPC). This is a serious political provocation against China. The leadership of the CPC is the choice of history and the people. The Chinese people are clear-eyed about the US's ill intention of suppressing and containing China's development and thwarting the Chinese nation's rejuvenation. Attempts to drive a wedge between the Chinese people and the CPC will not succeed.”

“The Biden administration sees China as an increasingly assertive economic, military and political competitor. Washington is keenly aware that Beijing is working to assert the superiority of its style of autocratic government, in direct contrast to liberal democracy. Biden's recent Summit for Democracy served several purposes for the administration, including building a network of countries that reject China's more authoritarian approach. At the same time, the Biden team does not believe it is possible or desirable to fully isolate China. Rather, they seek to balance competition with the pragmatic understanding that the two countries must cooperate on some economic and environmental issues.”

“The measure maliciously denigrates the human rights situation in China's Xinjiang in disregard of facts and truth. It seriously violates international law and basic norms governing international relations and grossly interferes in China's internal affairs. China deplores and firmly rejects this.”

“This is a severe violation of international law and norms of international relations, and a gross interference in China's internal affairs. China strongly condemns and firmly rejects it. China would respond further in light of the development of the situation.”

“I think the Chinese would be ill-advised to assume that if the United States did not intervene militarily in a Ukraine crisis, that means the United States would not intervene militarily in a Taiwan crisis. They really are different.”

“The US cannot save the regime on the island of Taiwan that seeks 'independence.' The rapidly growing power of the Chinese mainland has already written an overwhelming answer to the future of the island. Any new moves by the US over the Taiwan question will be fiercely counterattacked by the Chinese mainland. If the US and the Taiwan island collude by breaking the bottom line, the mainland will end the Taiwan question by resolute use of force. The mainland has the determination and awaits them. No matter how the US plays the Taiwan card, the trump card is in the hands of the Chinese mainland, which will win to the last.”

“The US is attempting to smear China in a low-cost way since US politicians have realized that if clashes or confrontations are intensified or lead to the military field, the risk may be too great to bear. They chose to 'boycott' the Beijing Olympics - a diplomatic stunt to showcase the US presence and 'leading role' in values. However, such a move is absurd. The unilateral boycott without an invitation in advance is a very cheap political gesture. It is as ridiculous as I say that I will boycott going to Mars.”
