House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) has pointed fingers at China's Communist Party for the exodus of businesses from the country. McCarthy emphasized the need for the United States to collaborate with its allies in order to decrease reliance on Chinese products.
McCarthy believes that China's attack on the private sector and its policy shifts have caused numerous businesses to relocate. He made it clear that the Communist Party's increasing control is to blame for this situation.
International businesses leaving China has proven beneficial for countries like Japan and Vietnam. McCarthy expressed his concern over dependence on China and mentioned that the House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party is examining ways to address this issue with the help of allies. One area of focus is the processing of critical minerals.
In addition, McCarthy criticized China's recent ban on Japanese food imports. This decision came after Japan released slightly radioactive water from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear-power plant into the Pacific. McCarthy believes that this ban is unjustified and merely serves as a means for the Communist Party to create divisions and spread misinformation.
During his visit to Tokyo, McCarthy met with U.S. Ambassador Rahm Emanuel and they enjoyed a lunch that included vegetables from Fukushima. McCarthy's visit and discussions highlight the growing global awareness of China's behavior and a determination to put an end to it.
China's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning defended China's response to Japan's water discharge, stating that it was reasonable and necessary due to public safety concerns. Moreover, she emphasized that China has always adhered to principles of mutual respect, peaceful coexistence, and win-win cooperation in its relations with the United States.
