The US Ambassador to International Religious Freedom Sam Brownback said on Friday (June 7) that the Chinese government is fighting war and will surely fail.
Speaking at the “Crisis Response in Xinjiang” conference organized by the Heritage Foundation , Mr Brownback said: “The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will fail in what it is doing now to control beliefs throughout China. They are trying to do something without a government that has ever succeeded on a long-term basis. ”
Ambassador Brownback points out the fact that the Chinese constitution affirms freedom of belief. However, the CCP government continues to trampling on this basic human right.
Ambassador Brownback identified a number of faith groups being treated “extremely hostile” by the CCP, including Buddhism, Islam, Christianity and Falun Gong , a spiritual practice of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. is present in many countries. He called on all countries to condemn what China is doing in the fight against faith.

“The Trump administration is deeply concerned and considers this oppression a deliberate attempt by Beijing to redefine and control identity, culture and faith,” Brown Brownback said.
Mr Brownback added that he regretted a decision he made in 2000. Then, he was a US senator representing the state of Kansas. He voted in favor of the most favored nation (MFN) status for China.
Four years after the Tiananmen Massacre , in 1993, US President Bill Clinton removed human rights from trade agreements with Beijing. This extended MFN status to China in the hope that Beijing will thus reducing the situation of free repression, according to The BL. A few years later, Clinton even went further when granting permanent MFN status to China. He the way for China to join the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001.
Mr. Brownback said: “I have done so because I think that China’s economic participation will gradually change their political behavior. By experiencing greater economic opportunities, China will gradually give [more people] more political freedom, while they become more and more attached to the West. I was wrong in that assessment, just like many others at the time.
Now, President Trump is at the right time to create historical impacts on mankind by reversing the decision of former President Bill Clinton about separating human rights from trade negotiations, The BL comment.
Bringing human rights back to the trade negotiating table, it was the recommendation of David Kilgour. He is former Canadian foreign minister in charge of the Asia-Pacific region, who was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts. He was in exposing implant abuse in China.

Wang Dan (Wang Dan), alumnus who survived the Tiananmen Massacre, also made this recommendation on May 29.
“Now is the time for all democratic countries to recognize the true face of the Chinese Communist Party,” Wang Dan said. “China has become a threat to the free world. I think it is time to reconsider trade and human rights issues. That may be the only way to solve this problem. “
