On December 2, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian presided over a regular press conference.
A reporter asked: According to reports, French President Emmanuel Macron said that the introduction of the "Inflation Reduction Act" and the "Chips and Science Act" by the United States has created huge differences between the United States and Europe, which will split the West or hinder transatlantic investment.
What is China's comment?
Zhao Lijian said that the United States introduced the so-called "Inflation Reduction Act" and "Chips and Science Act" to safeguard its own interests, but it has no regard for the impact on other countries, including so-called allies and partners. This is an "America First" hegemonic thinking. Another example of .
Recently, a number of European leaders and officials have stated against the Inflation Reduction Act that the United States should not use this to confront its friends, which is tantamount to seeking investment from Europe.
In fact, the United States keeps saying that Europe is an important ally, but in fact it regards Europe as a receiver for disaster relief.
There are many such examples.
The United States made a fortune in the Ukraine crisis, while Europe "bleeded" in the crisis, paying for inflation and high energy prices.
Until now, Europe is still cleaning up the mess of Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and other issues for the United States.
No wonder some European media commented that today's Europeans must ask themselves: Why does our peace and prosperity depend on the interests of the United States?
This is indeed a question worthy of serious consideration and treatment by Europe and even the whole world.
