President Trump’s executive order barring refugees and individuals from seven Muslim-majority nations from the U.S. has drawn ire and criticism from Chinese state media.
While U.S. federal judges have been in deliberation with lawyers on whether to reinstate the immigration order, foreign nations, such as China, have voiced their disdain for Trump’s executive action.
The Chinese media agency, Xinhua was particularly critical of Trump and his protectionist policies.
Below is Xinhua’s written response to the executive order, as reported by Reuters:
Trump’s order shows that his administration has no correct recognition of the responsibility it needs to shoulder in a global fight against terrorism. Radical elements around the world could use the ban to further justify their ruthless causes, and to gain more recruits…
That is a grave threat not only to the safety and security of the United States, but that of others worldwide. Banned countries on the list, such as Iraq, Libya and Syria, have been victimized by terrorism because previous U.S. governments and other Western powers deliberately intervened for self-interests.
While the Chinese government is supportive of heightening immigration security, previously stating that “adjusting immigration and entry and exit policy is an act within each country’s sovereignty,” it apparently does not condone limiting entry to migrants and refugees at the executive order level.
China warns that the U.S. should consider “reasonable concerns of relevant countries” when implementing such an order.
