Larry Ong / March 7, 2017

Religion is anathema to the atheist Communist Party that rules China, and the menu of policy choices for regime leaders has been limited to “crush, control, or co-opt.” The administration of Chinese leader Xi Jinping has, so far, largely remained in this mold.

China’s Foreign Minister Just Flipped Out at a Canadian Reporter for Asking About Human Rights

Leo Timm / June 12, 2016

Questions about human rights are “irresponsible,” “full of prejudice,” and “totally unacceptable,” said Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi in a vehement rebuke of a Canadian reporter who dared raise the issue at a June 2 event held at the headquarters of Global Affairs Canada in Ottawa.
