World War 3 news: Human rights expert says US must take harder stance on China
There is a growing concern regarding China and the steps it has taken to assume control over certain parts of the world. With relations between Beijing and Washington further frayed, a human rights expert says the US must take a harder stance on China, else an all-out conflict or world war 3 break out.
Human Rights Watch China researcher Yaqiu Wang urged Washington to take a stronger approach, past the verbal pushbacks being given, towards China. Speaking to Express, Wang said that verbal attacks towards Beijing must turn into action now and that the US must team up with its allies to take action on President Xi Jinping towards many aspects from trade, businesses, and especially the human rights violations the communist nation has committed. Wang noted that the Chinese government has only ignored the verbal pushbacks being given by the US and its allies towards human rights thus it is necessary for Washington to go for a more radical approach.
“The Chinese government isn’t responding to this kind of pressure so the US and others need to be more consequential in their policies to address human rights issues,” said Wang. “The US and many European countries are not happy with China and its record, and so should make an effort to align with each other and other democratic countries to pile on the pressure.”
The US and the UK have already imposed sanctions on China. Donald Trump and his administration blacklisted the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps and several of its officials for their ties to human rights abuse in Xinjiang. In the UK, prime minister Boris Johnson has offered a chance to settle in the country with a British National Overseas Passport to up to three million Hong Kong residents.
Another country that has become constantly monitored as of late by the West is Russia as its tensions with European countries and the US could also evolve into a possible world war 3. Russian submarines have now outnumbered the submarines by the United Kingdom’s defense forces in the North Atlantic. Russia’s Akula-class submarines were detected entering the waters that are mostly patrolled by the Royal Navy and the US Navy, which experts believe is a move used in the Cold War for provoking adversaries.
