Even the UN High Commissioner for Refugees is helping spread Communist Chinese propaganda!
As we have reported over the years, China doesn’t take in refugees or asylum seekers (well at least none in recent decades) and while the UN uses bullying and threats against Japan to force them to diversify their population, I have never once heard the cabal of Leftist Open Borders agitators and the UN pressure China to experience the ‘joys’ of multiculturalism.
Now here is a story clearly meant to suck up to China just as the threat of the Communist Party there and what it is capable of doing to the world (can you say COVID!) is really sinking in for a lot of freedom loving people worldwide.
And, not a mention here of the word UIGHER!
From the Global Times:
China responsible and supportive on refugee issues: UNHCR representative
China and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency) have maintained a long history of cooperation. China has not only actively participated in the events organized by the UNHCR on refugee relief, but also contributed to international solutions to the refugee crises over the past 41 years. With increasing strength, China is expected play a more prominent role in the field of international refugee relief.
As for China’s role and contribution in the UNHCR, Sivanka Dhanapala, the Representative of UNHCR in China, told the Global Times in an exclusive interview that China has been extremely supportive in international dialogues about refugee issues, and has bolstered shared international responsibility.
What! China the great peacekeeper!
“As a very important member state of the UN, and a permanent member of the Security Council, China plays an extremely significant role in UNHCR through peacekeeping at the Security Council level that helps to stabilize regions that might otherwise end up in political turmoil,” Dhanapala said.
Dhanapala raised an example of Chinese Premier Li Keqiang attending the Leaders Summit on Refugees at the UN headquarters in New York in 2016, noting that China has been extremely supportive in solving refugee issues since then, helping set the tone for shared international responsibility. [Big whoop! they attended a meeting in New York on refugees.—ed]
According to the Chinese Foreign Ministry’s website, Li addressed at the conference that China actively advocates political resolutions to regional hot-spot issues and has raised its own proposals on ceasefires, political reconciliation and ending violence.
Here the Los Angeles Times a few short years ago (2017) gives a more realistic picture of China’s view of refugees. It seems they did ‘welcome’ Vietnamese of Chinese origin in the wake of the conflict is Southeast Asia. They put those ‘refugees’ on farms to work for the state.
There is not a chance in hell that China is going to give refuge to Middle East Muslims and Somalis from Africa! And, there isn’t a chance in hell that the UN is going to ask that of them!
So while the hard Left blasts President Trump for being xenophobic, racist, and unwelcoming, there is never a bad word for the Chinese government or Chinese President Xi Jinping ! Why is that?
Indeed there is not one critical quote here about Chinese refugee policy in the LA Times story from the likes of Human Rights Watch or any of the Leftists daily demanding that the US take in more diversity.
China once welcomed refugees, but its policies now make Trump look lenient
China gets it! Diversity is not strength!
