The United States Security Challenges Issues With China Technology

The United States Security Challenges Issues With China Technology


The United States is with China. We need to think bigger, maybe better. Because we can cooperate with China, as this administration has shown that I expect a phase one trade agreement to be signed with China. This is a fantastic thing, We welcome it more, but we have to honestly face tough questions about the national security consequences of doing business in a country controlled by the Chinese Communist Party. This especially goes for companies that develop some of our most sensitive technology, as do many in this field. There is a reason for so many hackers and thieves - like A.P.T. The 10 groups are linked to the Chinese Ministry of Security. Under Jinping, the CCP has given priority to something called "military-civilian fusion". Many of you know this. It is a technical term but a very simple idea. Under Chinese law, Chinese companies and researchers should share technology with the Chinese military. But I would like to remind each of you as Americans citizens of an independent nation, that it is increasing the threat from Chinese actions which can greatly reduce the freedom that you have to create and build your business. It is not going to sound an alarm. It is not threatening. It is for all that we should be aware. Now we see China for what it is, not what we want it to be. This has happened on both sides of the political aisle, and American companies have also rallied for patriotic reasons. It has a long history in the United States. Any of you who have read history will remember that the so-called "arsenal of democracy," also known as American manufacturing, was essential to our victory in World War II. President Trump called China's theft and predator Action is taken to counter economic practices. He is demanding respect and reciprocity. This is going to be the very week when we sign the first part of a business deal. He knows that economic security is the core of my mission set to protect each of you, to provide national security. And we have export controls on parts that go into the CCP's nationwide surveillance machine. We have implemented a lot of scrutiny for technology exports that may have military use. We have dramatically reduced the nuclear technology share with China, even for nominally peaceful purposes. Our government agencies are trying to prevent new forces from using their own innovation against us. Cooperating in ways. And we are giving notice to our partners about the huge security and privacy risks associated with building a 5G network with Huawei Chinese company. Furthermore, protecting America's innovation, We will do our part in the government and we will continue our enforcement. You should know that we are on your side. But defending freedom and national security is not just the government's job, It is for each and every citizen.

Michael R. Pompeo, Secretary Of United State Remarks

Michael R. Pompeo, Secretary Of State Remarks To The Press Media On Current World Situations


Opening Remarks Keynote Archives Speech of Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo to the Press and Media in the United States.
I know that you have questions about the Middle East and Iraq. But first of all, I would like to convey my condolences to the people of Australia for the tragic loss of life and property due to the devastating wildfires in that region. The thoughts and prayers of America with the victims, their families and emergency service personnel. And the same thing for firefighters, who are fighting shoulder to shoulder with our Australian friends. when I was just in Sydney last summer, we have a really unbreakable alliance. They are very good friends, and we are happy to be able to help the Australian team in this time of need.

Asia Situations 


Staying in Asia, we mentioned the appointment of Luo Huoning, the new head of the liaison office of the Hong Kong Chinese Central Government. He hoped that Hong Kong would, at the end of the bid, return to the "right path". The Right Way, as I have stated before, in the Sino-British Joint Declaration entered into by the Communist Party of China to the United Nations, honoring its commitments to Hong Kong, a commitment that guarantees the region's free governance and independence. That the Chinese living on the mainland unfortunately do not enjoy. Human rights and fundamental freedoms in Hong Kong, The United States will continue to work with Hong Kong and Chinese Communist Party officials to protect Pakistan and promote Hong Kong's higher autonomy.

Afghanistan Situations 


In Afghanistan, there was one aspect of the conflict that deserves more attention, is that The Islamic Republic is a partnership of Iran. in which Iran is not taking part to join the regional and international consensus for peace and, in fact, continues to undermine the peace process by continuing its longstanding global efforts to actively support militant groups there. Many people around the world know of Iran's proxy network in the Arab world, but the regime also has a relationship with the Taliban and related groups, such as the Haqqani, Torah Bora and Mulla Dadullah groups. The Taliban's involvement in Iran's dirty work will only harm Afghanistan's peace process.

Venezuela Situations 


In Venezuela, I would like to thank and congratulate Juan Guaido on winning in reelection as President of the Venezuelan National Assembly, a valid reunion by a quorum of 100 deputies. The Maduro regime's arrest, bullying and bribery operations. I consider how Venezuelan political parties came to support the reunification of Guido. The United States will continue to support President Guado and the people of Venezuela, and we will continue to rally all other freedom-loving countries around the world to do the same thing. We support the people of Venezuela because we believe That the Western Hemisphere should be the hemisphere with freedom everywhere.
I also want to highlight the work of the OAS, Secretary-General Luis Almagro is the leader who will have to continue to strive for the OAS to meet the key challenges of the region, promoting democracy, upholding human rights, advancing security and promoting economic development. I have to say about the OAS and the multilateral platform. On the theme of basic freedom.

Bahrain Situations 


I would like to speak to Bahrain January 2 statement. in which they expressed deep concern with Uighur Muslims in China over inhuman and painful conditions. Bahrain has been recognizing what I have been saying for months, the Chinese Communist Party is violating human rights in a big way against Uighur, ethnic Kazakhs, Kyrgyz and other Muslims placed under house arrest in Xinjiang. We are happy with what Bahrain did, and we ask all countries, especially those associated with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Arab League, to refuse the ruthless behavior of the Uighurs.

Europe Situations 


Going to Europe. As many of you know, Prime Minister Mitsotakis is in the city this week. I look forward to welcoming him here. I will be with President Trump at the White House today. I also want to announce that our Under Secretary of Political Affairs, David Hale, will travel to Brussels this weekend, where he interacted with 28 European counterparts. It is a recurring meeting which takes place every six months. This is particularly important because it immediately assumes the office of the EU foreign minister over Iran which has just been determined. And it shows, once again, our close cooperation with our European partners on issues of mutual concern. I am sure, while David's there, the issue of Iran and Iraq will figure prominently in their negotiations, and they have Syria There will also be an opportunity to discuss priorities like North Korea and China. Finally, another personnel matter. I would like to thank Ambassador John Bass, whom I would like to tell about my time in service as a director of the Central Intelligence Agency and now as Secretary of State. His two years of service in Kabul were notable. This is one of our most important campaigns. Ambassador John Bass is a respected strategic thinker, a man of incredible integrity. He helped move that country towards a brighter, more peaceful, and more secure future for all Afghan people.

Without most of the deputation, as constitutionally mandated, there can be no legal opinion. Maduro continues to ignore the constitution and will of the Venezuelan people. Venezuelan political parties came together in a spectacular display of unity to support Juan Guado's re-election. Together, they provided Guaido with a clear distinction of victory. The United States and 57 other countries consider him as the legitimate leader of the National Assembly and thus the legitimate interim president of Venezuela. Juan Guado enriches the struggle of the people of Venezuela to reclaim the prosperity and democracy they once enjoyed. No regime thugs, no prison cells, and no bribery or intimidation can overturn the will of the people of Venezuela. The United States and democratic allies around the world commit to the people of Venezuela and their efforts to end the brutal and inept dictatorship, under which they live. Venezuela's repression and poverty, which has already forced more than 15 percent of the people to flee the country, will only begin to end when democracy returns completely. We wait for that day and reimagine ourselves to support the interim President Guedo, the National Assembly and free and fair elections.

Three days of mourning for the death of General Soleimani


U.S. State Secretary Michael R. Pompeo also discuss on, three days of mourning for the death of General Soleimani. Not allowing parents to grieve over the death of their child, It is sad, it is hypocritical. In fact, I would describe it as evil. especially when it came to hands, often, organizations led by Qasim Solimani. That is, he was responsible for the deaths of those people, and the leadership would not let them grieve, and now this evil man, this terrorist, Mr. Soleimani, is about to meet him for three days. this is not right. It is inconsistent that we all know the right way to treat humans, but sadly it reflects the nature of the Iranian regime's way of behaving for a long time. Well, there are always many reasons for the timing of events. In this case, we had seen Solimani and his IRGC forces, as well as his predictions, that Shia militaries in Iraq were involved in activities threatening American lives. We have seen it for months. We saw them taking the ship from the Hormuz Strait. We saw them engage in activities that led to the collapse of the United States UAVs. And then, in late December, we saw them in what would be the 10th or 15th strike, this time killing an American contractor. It was getting enlarged. We needed to stop it. All this was happening as a result of the orgy of terror, Soleimani, so we had a need. Secondly, we were watching, and Soleimani was planning future attacks - attacks that led to the deaths of dozens or hundreds of American citizens. Could, as well as many Iraqis, many Muslims, people of the Shia faith or Sunni faith. We will not let this happen and so we did everything we could to disrupt it. So we continue to do that work, but last night we took that strike, taking the man who was orchestrating and leading the conduct of these imminent attacks.

U.S. Drone Air Strike in Iraq Kills, Top Iranian Military Leader Commander Qassim Suleimani, in Baghdad. We did - it was a defensive strike that was taken and supported by very solid intelligence, and I saw all the intelligence. we were seeing that Soleimani was planning imminent attacks against American diplomats and members of our armed forces in Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and the region. He is the architect of the major terrorist attacks of Iran in the last 20 years. He killed 608 Americans in Iraq alone. And so as we begin to see the broad and very solid intelligence that he is plotting imminent attacks against the United States, the President, as Commander-in-Chief, has a duty to take decisive action. September 11 of 2018 That decisive action has been threatened for a year and a half since the White House made a statement saying that it is after the rocket attacks on our diplomatic facilities in Iraq, and They said that we are going to imagine attacks denying Iran; We are not going to honor the distinction between Iran and the regime and its proximity, and if the regime or its supporters attack American interests or personnel, they will take decisive action. Secretary Pompeo said on 13 December. We said I could do this more often than I counted. The Iranians just did not believe us. And the Iranians met a situation of danger. And as - and - and I would also say: If we had not taken this action, and hundreds of Americans would have died, When we had a chance, So why should not we attack on Solemani. this the beginning of something big and everything. In future decisive action will be taken to eliminate a very, very, effective terrorist in the center of the Middle East to save hundreds of American people. We would take strictly actions against terrorism so that, the blood of wounded and the martyrs will not go in vain. This response will create harsh environment for American forces in Iraq. But we deal it with strictly.
