The author of the document, Democrat Gregory Meeks, in particular, calls for responding to human rights violations in China.
The chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Democrat Gregory Meeks, introduced a bill aimed at countering “challenges from China.” This is stated in a message posted on the committee’s website. The document, entitled “Ensuring American Global Leadership and Cooperation,” is intended, according to the author, to strengthen the country’s institutions and diplomacy.
“China is increasingly trying to undermine the rules-based order and challenge the US position [in the world]. We need to use our strength and focus on the real threats coming from China, ” the congressman said…”The bill will help strengthen our diplomatic, economic, information, military, and technological strength.”
In particular, it is proposed to increase the staff of the State Department dealing with the Indo-Pacific region, expand cooperation within the UN and APEC. “[It is proposed] to promote strategic and economic competitiveness on the world stage through actions to combat climate change, vaccine diplomacy, development finance, cooperation in the field of digital technologies and cyberspace,” the document says. In addition, the author of the bill calls for a response to “human rights violations” in China. As Yang Jiechi, a member of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), head of the office of the CPC Central Committee’s Foreign Affairs Commission, said on February 2, Beijing has never sought to challenge or take Washington’s place in the world and does not intend to share spheres of influence with it.
