Xi Jinping Speaks with Barbadian Prime Minister Mia Mottley on the Phone
On the evening of July 13, 2021, President Xi Jinping had a phone conversation with Barbadian Prime Minister Mia Mottley.
Xi Jinping pointed out that Barbados is China’s good friend and good partner in the eastern Caribbean. Since the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Barbados 44 years ago, the two countries have witnessed constant high-level exchanges and fruitful cooperation. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, China and Barbados have pulled together and jointly overcome the difficulties. As the pandemic continues to spread around the world, we are duty-bound to help our friends in need. China will continue to strengthen cooperation with Barbados in such areas as vaccines and medical treatment to help Barbados overcome the pandemic at an early date.
Xi Jinping stressed that both China and Barbados adhere to putting the people first. China is ready to strengthen exchanges of experience in national governance with Barbados, expand practical cooperation in infrastructure and other areas and push China-Barbados relations to a new level. China is ready to continue to provide assistance within its capacity for Barbados’s economic and social development. The two sides should strengthen coordination and cooperation in international affairs to safeguard the common interests of developing countries. The Belt and Road Initiative has created a lot of opportunities for common development. China is ready to work with Barbados and other Caribbean countries to promote the joint construction of the Belt and Road. He hopes that Barbados will make positive contributions to the cooperation between China and the Caribbean Community and the development of China-Latin America relations.
Mottley expressed her sincere congratulations on the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China (CPC). She said, under the foresight and strong leadership of General Secretary Xi Jinping, China has successfully achieved the first centenary goal and lifted itself out of absolute poverty. She believes and wishes that under the leadership of the CPC, China will make even greater achievements on its new journey to achieve the second centenary goal. Barbados is glad to have such a friend as China and is willing to strengthen bilateral pragmatic cooperation and multilateral communication and coordination with China, jointly build the Belt and Road and push for greater development of Barbados-China relations and Latin America-China relations. She thanked China for its valuable assistance in Barbados’s fight against COVID-19. Barbados opposes politicizing the issue of the origin tracing of the virus, appreciates China for its positive contributions to promoting the equitable distribution of vaccines among developing countries, and hopes to strengthen vaccine cooperation with China.
Xi Jinping Speaks with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the Phone
On the evening of July 13, 2021, President Xi Jinping had a phone conversation with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Xi Jinping pointed out that since last year, the practical cooperation between China and Turkey has yielded encouraging results, showing strong resilience and great potential. The close cooperation between the two sides in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic has become a new highlight in bilateral relations. Noting that China and Turkey are about to mark the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations, the Chinese side is willing to work with Turkey to promote greater development of China-Turkey strategic cooperative relations.
Xi Jinping emphasized that both sides should respect each other’s core concerns and enhance strategic mutual trust. China supports Turkey in safeguarding national sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, and in taking a development path in line with its own national conditions. China is also willing to strengthen cooperation with Turkey in counter-terrorism, security and other fields. The two sides should promote synergy between joint construction of the Belt and Road Initiative and the Middle Corridor project of Turkey, explore new ideas and measures to optimize bilateral trade structure, and improve economy and trade cooperation so as to push for more fruitful results in the practical cooperation. The Chinese side stands ready to conduct in-depth vaccine cooperation with Turkey and help it defeat the COVID-19 pandemic at an early date. Both sides should jointly oppose politicizing origin tracing and labelling the virus, and promote the building of a global community of health for all.
Erdogan once again congratulated the Communist Party of China on its centennial. He said that this year also marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Turkey and China, which is of special significance for both countries. Turkey attaches importance to developing relations with China, and is willing to have close contacts with China and look to the future, jointly build the Belt and Road, and expand practical cooperation in such fields as economy, trade and infrastructure. Turkey welcomes investment cooperation with Chinese enterprises. Expressing appreciation for China’s invaluable support in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, Erdogan said, the safety and effectiveness of Chinese vaccines have won recognition and trust worldwide, and Turkey hopes to strengthen vaccine cooperation with China. Turkey has adhered to and will continue to adhere to the one-China policy firmly. Turkey supports China in safeguarding its independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity, and in combating terrorism. Turkey does not allow anyone to use Turkish territory to engage in separatist activities that endanger China’s sovereignty.
Xi Jinping Rallies the World Against America
Chinese President Xi Jinping called for solidarity against the United States in a summit with 500 representatives from 160 countries on July 1.
Xi made clear that he refuses to be lectured by the West. “The Chinese people will never allow foreign forces to bully, oppress or enslave us,” he said. “Whoever nurses delusions of doing that will crack their heads and spill blood on the Great Wall of steel built from the flesh and blood of 1.4 billion Chinese people.” Under Joe Biden, the U.S. has urged European nations and Japan to take a tougher stance against China. Prior to Biden, Donald Trump operated with a tough America First policy that led to a trade war with China. These world powers are clearly at odds. The Bible reveals how it will end.
“The speech was laden with symbols intended to show that China and its ruling party would not tolerate foreign obstruction on the country’s path to becoming a superpower,” the New York Times reported on July 1.
One recent example shows what kind of pressure the U.S. has been exerting to hinder China’s rise.
In 2018, the Dutch government gave asml, one of the global leaders in computer chip manufacturing, a license to sell its most advanced machine to a Chinese customer. The U.S. used its influence in the global financial system to block it. “The pressure appears to have worked. Shortly after the White House visit, the Dutch government decided not to renew asml’s export license, and the $150 million machine has not been shipped,” Reuters wrote.
The asml machine manufactures the smallest, most modern semiconductor chips in the most effective way. China already has vast supplies of raw materials needed to produce those chips and exports them around the world. But if China were to have the technology needed for the production of these chips, it would have an immense market advantage. It could use this advantage to limit its rare earth exports and thus further increase its market advantage. It could also make its exports dependent “on the loyalty of its customers and on Western states looking the other way at its numerous human rights violations,” Germany’s Bild.de noted.
If China could loosen itself from this and other constraints holding it back, it would become almost unstoppable.
To achieve this goal, China is calling for an alliance against the U.S., rallying support from North Korea, Serbia, Burkina Faso, Zimbabwe, Cuba and Russia. “Together, we must oppose all acts of unilateralism in the name of multilateralism, hegemony and power politics,” President Xi said at the virtual conference. He called for “building a community with a shared future for mankind” and urged rejection of any country that pursues “technology blockades” and “development decoupling.”
“Looking from the angle of ‘My Country First,’ the world is narrow and crowded, and often full of fierce competition,” Xi warned. For this reason he called for an alliance against the U.S.
Isaiah 23 warns of such an alliance. “The burden of Tyre. Howl, ye ships of Tarshish; for it is laid waste, so that there is no house, no entering in: from the land of Chittim it is revealed to them. … And by great waters the seed of Sihor, the harvest of the river, is her revenue; and she is a mart of nations” (verses 1, 3). In his booklet Isaiah’s End-Time Vision, Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry explains that “Chittim (verse 1; biblical Kittim—Genesis 10:4) gave birth to the land of Chaldee, or southern China. China and Japan were prophesied to be powerful nations in this end time.”
Isaiah 23 reveals that China is prophesied to play a leading role in a trade alliance that excludes modern-day Israel, primarily referring to the U.S. and Britain. But while China will play an important role, there is another power leading this alliance. Mr. Flurry writes that “the Bible refers to Tyre (and its allies Zidon, etc) as the commercial center of this European power.”
Daniel 8:23-25 warn of a strongman who will lead this alliance. This prophecy had a historic fulfillment, but the book of Daniel is for the end time, the days we are now living. This leader will “magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many.” Barnes’ Notes on the Bible explains: “It would seem to mean that he would endeavor to produce the impression that he was coming in peace; that he pretended friendship, and designed to keep those whom he meant to invade and destroy in a state of false security, so that he might descend upon them unawares.”
Today, Germany and the European Union present themselves as allies of the U.S. despite frequent animosities. Yet the Bible warns of Germany’s deceit. Germany will betray the U.S. in a destructive alliance with China. The small example of chip manufacturing shows how destructive an alliance between Europe and China could be.
To understand how this will unfold, read “The Great Mart.” Also request a free copy of Mr. Flurry’s book Ezekiel—The End-Time Prophet. In this book, Mr. Flurry outlines the detailed prophecies that speak of our time and shows how many of them are fulfilled before our eyes.
