Comrades and friends: we are solemnly gathered here today to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Chinese People’s Volunteer Army‘s war to resist the U.S. and to aid Korea.

同志們,朋友們:今天,我們在這裏隆重集會,紀念中國人民志願軍抗美援朝出國作戰70周年。

70 years ago, the Chinese People’s Volunteer Army, formed by China’s outstanding sons and daughters, shouldering the people’s trust and the people’s hopes, holding high the just flag of protecting the peace and resisting encroachment, gallantly crossed the Yalu River, making full use of the great spirit of patriotism and revolutionary heroism. Together with the Korean people, they lived through two years and nine months of arduous, extremely bloody struggle, and won a great victory in resisting the U.S. and aiding Korea.

70年前,由中華優秀兒女組成的中國人民志願軍,肩負著人民的重托、民族的期望,高舉保衛和平、反抗侵略的正義旗幟,雄赳赳、氣昂昂,跨過鴨綠江,發揚偉大的愛國主義精神和革命英雄主義精神,同朝鮮人民和軍隊一道,歷經兩年零9個月艱苦卓絕的浴血奮戰,贏得了抗美援朝戰爭偉大勝利。

The great war of resisting the U.S. and aiding Korea resisted imperialism’s invasive expansion, defended New China’s security, safeguarded the Chinese people’s peaceful life, stabilized the situation on the Korean peninsula, and protected Asian and global peace.

偉大的抗美援朝戰爭,抵禦了帝國主義侵略擴張,捍衛了新中國安全,保衛了中國人民和平生活,穩定了朝鮮半島局勢,維護了亞洲和世界和平。

The great victory of the war of resisting the U.S. and aiding Korea will always be carved into the Chinese nation’s annals! It will always be carved into humankind’s annals of peace, development and progress!

抗美援朝戰爭偉大勝利,將永遠銘刻在中華民族的史冊上!永遠銘刻在人類和平、發展、進步的史冊上!

For the past 70 years, we have never forgotten the immortal merits of the older generation of revolutionaries in protecting international justice, defending world peace, protecting the newly-established People’s Republic, and we have never forgotten the profound significance of the party’s central committee’s and Comrade Mao Zedong’s major decision that year, to dispatch the Chinese People’s Volunteer Army into the war. At this very moment, we would like to show our most deeply-felt memory for the older generation of revolutionaries!

——70年來,我們始終沒有忘記老一輩革命家為維護國際正義、捍衛世界和平、保衛新生共和國所建立的不朽功勳,始終沒有忘記黨中央和毛澤東同志當年作出中國人民志願軍出國作戰重大決策的深遠意義。此時此刻,我們要向老一輩革命家,表示最深切的懷念!

During the past 70 years, we have never forgotten the magnificent song of praise for the Chinese People’s Volunteer Army’s officers and soldiers, and all those who contributed to the great victory in that war. On behalf of the party’s central committee, the state council and the central military commission, I send my most sincere greetings to all the living Chinese People’s Volunteer Army’s veterans, old comrades, disabled honorable military people, and to all those who, in those years, supported the war of resisting the U.S. and aiding Korea, those of all the country’s nationalities and especially those supporting the front, to the martyrs’ relatives and their fellow military people.

——70年來,我們始終沒有忘記譜寫了氣壯山河英雄讚歌的中國人民志願軍將士,以及所有為這場戰爭勝利作出貢獻的人們。我代表黨中央、國務院和中央軍委,向所有健在的中國人民志願軍老戰士、老同志、傷殘榮譽軍人,向當年支援抗美援朝戰爭的全國各族人民特別是參戰支前人員,向中國人民志願軍烈屬、軍屬,致以最誠摯的問候!

Over the past 70 years, we have never forgotten the martyrs who heroically sacrificed their lives in the war to resist the U.S. and to aid Korea. More than 197,000 heroic sons and daughters gave their precious lives for the motherland, the people, and the peace. The martyrs’ achievements will shine for a thousand years, and the martyrs’ legendary reputation will last forever!

 ——70年來,我們始終沒有忘記在抗美援朝戰爭中英勇犧牲的烈士們。19萬7千多名英雄兒女為了祖國、為了人民、為了和平獻出了寶貴生命。烈士們的功績彪炳千秋,烈士們的英名萬古流芳!

During the war to resist the U.S. and aid Korea, the Korean [Workers] Party, government and people cared for, cherished and helped the Chinese People’s Volunteer Army, the peoples and armies of China and Korea shared weal and woe, depended on each other in life and death, and built a brotherhood of arms with their blood clots. All the peace-loving countries and peoples of the world, all friendly organizations and public figures gave their assistance and support for China’s Volunteer Army entering Korea for the war. On behalf of the Chinese [Communist] party, government and troops, I express heartfelt thanks to them!

在抗美援朝戰爭中,朝鮮黨、政府、人民關心、愛護、支援中國人民志願軍,中朝兩國人民和軍隊休戚與共、生死相依,用鮮血凝結成了偉大戰鬥友誼。世界上一切愛好和平的國家和人民、友好組織和友好人士,對中國人民志願軍入朝作戰給予了有力支援和支持。我代表中國黨、政府、軍隊,向他們表示衷心的感謝!

CCTV News Anchor on “national security” legislation: “The Red Line must be inscribed in the Hearts”

Hai Xia, CCTV “Xinwen Lianbo” news anchor, July 5

Transcript

These two days our CCTV series “China emotionally touched”, with “Filled with Emotions like a Fragrant River”, led to passionate debates among netizens.

这两天央视播出的《感动中国》特别节目《情满香江》引发网友热议,

The film included a description of many motherland-loving, Hong Kong-loving people straightened their backs and defended Hong Kong‘s story.

片子里讲述了很多爱国爱港人士挺身而出守护香港的故事。

Among them, and that impressed us most deeply, there was a Hong Kong citizen at a plaza facing the “black violence” threat,

其中让我印象很深的是,有一位香港市民在商场里面对“黑暴”威胁,

responding by bringing his child and singing the national anthem aloud. His only a few year-old daughter said that someone who doesn‘t love his own country is useless.

他回应的方式是带着自己的孩子高唱国歌。他年仅几岁的女儿还说,一个人不爱自己的国家就没用了。

This little friend really must be praised. So young, she knows good from bad. Of course, this has to do with her father educating her,

真要为这位小朋友点赞,小小年纪就能明是非。这当然与父母的教育有关,

and we have also seen news today which says that Hong Kong‘s libraries have removed some “HK independence” books from the shelves which is beautifully done, but it is not enough.

今天也看到一个消息说,香港有图书馆已经将一些“港独”书籍下架,干得漂亮,但这还不够。

Many people know that some basic educational material in HK comes with “poison”, and this “poison” must be cleaned away to clean the source.

很多人都知道香港的一些教材、基础教育领域都带有“毒”,把这里的“毒”排排干净,才是真正的正本清源。

With HK security law in force, the law must genuinely take effect. Besides seriously applying the law, universal law knowledge must be taught well.

香港国安法已经落地生效,法律要真正发挥效用,除了严格执法之外,普法教育工作也一定要做好。

The red line is not only a legal red line, but must be inscribed in the hearts.

红线不仅是划在执法一线,也是划在心里。

The poison must vanish from the source, and only from there can the pernicious influence that brings calamity to HK be blocked at the roots.

源头消了毒,祸港的流毒也才能从根上堵住。

Hong Kong Security Secretary: “Terrorism breeding in HK, iron fact”

The following is a translation of an RTHK (Radio Television Hong Kong) report on yesterday’s LegCo security panel session. Translated off the cuff. If you find mistakes, please let me know.

Links within blockquote added during translation.

Police have said that from last year to now there have been 14 cases involving explosives, four cases of genuine arms, and 76 arrested, of who 30 had already been prosecuted. Security Bureau secretary John Lee Ka-chiu said that this illustrated that local terrorism was breeding in Hong Kong. He emphasized that counter-terrorism was a responsibility of the entire population, and called on the public to cooperate in law enforcement. The authorities would strike with the strictest laws.

警方說,去年至今出現14宗涉及爆炸品及4宗真槍的案件,共拘捕76人,30人已被檢控。保安局局長李家超說,顯示本土恐怖主義正在香港滋生,強調反恐是全民責任,呼籲公眾配合執法,當局會以最嚴厲的法律打擊。

At the Legislative Council’s Panel on Security meeting, John Lee Ka-chiu said he believed that in various violent [events] there had been financial funding organizations and assistance, such as supplies of helmets, gas masks, weapons and umbrellas, etc., and there had been cases where such material had been provided from ranks behind to the first lines. John Lee Ka-chiu described great numbers of resources, and a lot of related material left behind on the streets after insurrection. He believed that because of the authorities’ recent effective strikes, and maybe because of decreasing funding from abroad, such equipment had been reduced in recent violent incidents.

在立法會保安事務委員會會議上,李家超說,相信在不同暴力中都有資金提供組織及支援,例如提供頭盔、防毒面罩、武器和雨傘等,亦出現將有關物品由後方提供到前方的情況。李家超形容資源很多,而在暴動過後很多有關物品留在街上,他相信由於當局近期有效打擊,又或者是外來資金減少,近期暴力事件中,有關裝備已減少。

Legislative Council member Claudia Mo Man-ching asked the authorities to provide evidence for the cases mentioned, and asked if the authorities had been part of terrorism in the Yuen Long July 21 incident of last year. John Lee Ka-chiu retorted that the other side should not trivialize the violence and added that evidence would be seen in court, describing this as an iron fact.

議會陣線毛孟靜要求當局就提到的案件提供證據,又詢問當局去年元朗7.21事件是否屬本土恐怖主義。李家超反駁對方不要淡化暴力,又說上到法庭就會見到證物,形容是鐵一般的事實。

Uyghur Human Rights Bill passed by U.S. Senate

Click picture for Tweet

The following is a translation of a news article published by the China Times, a Taiwanese pan-blue-leaning newspaper. Links added during translation.

Main link: Senate passes Uyghur Human Rights bill, mentions Xinjiang Party Secretary by Name

The human rights situation of the Uyghurs in China Xinjiang has become one of the major issues of US Congress. The U.S. Senate passed a “2020 Uyghur human rights policy bill on Thursday (May 14), demanding that President Trump exert more pressure on China, concerning Uyghur human rights issues.

中国新疆维吾尔族人权状况成为美国国会关注重点之一,美国参议院周四(14日)通过《2020年维吾尔人权政策法案》,要求总统川普就新疆人权问题,向中国施加更大压力。

The bill, proposed by Republican Senator Marco Rubio, received cross-party support and was unanimously passed by the Senate on Thursday. The bill demands Washington to sanction officials who suppress Uyghurs and Islamic groups, and also mentions Xinjiang Autonomous Region’s party secretary Chen Quanguo by name, accusing him of “serious violations of human rights,” and demanding once again that Washington impose sanctions. The bill also indicates that former Xinjiang Political and Legal Affairs Commission secretary Zhu Hailun must be directly held responsible for the suppression of human rights.

由共和党参议员鲁比欧提出的法案获得跨党派支持,周四在参议院表决中获一致通过。法案要求华府制裁打压维吾尔族和回教团体的官员,更点名指控新疆自治区党委书记陈全国「严重违反人权」,再次要求华府加以制裁。法案又指,新疆前政法委书记朱海仑就新疆人权打压问题需负直接责任。

The bill calls on US companies and individuals with business in Xinjiang to take measures to avoid issues of forced labor in the local supply chains. Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman James Risch and Ranking Senate Foreign Relations Committee member Bob Menendez described the  passage of the bill as “an important step in fighting against China’s totalitarian government’s extensive and atrocious suppression of human rights,” and called on the House of Representatives to pass the bill as soon as possible, to pass it on to Trump for signing it into law.

法案呼吁,在新疆有业务的美国企业或个人应採取措施,避免当地的供应链有强迫劳工问题。共和党参议院外交关系委员会主席里施(James Risch)及委员会首席民主党成员梅南德斯(Bob Menendez)形容,法案获通过是「对抗中国极权政府广泛而可怖地打压人权的重要一步」,呼吁眾议院尽快通过法案,交予特朗普签署成法。

“National People’s Congress” Standing Committee Chairpersons’ Meeting

Both bodies’ sessions usually take place annually in March, but were postponed this year, because of the COVID-19 crisis.

One Territory, two Statements

Apolitical, too? Erdogan in talks hosted by Xi Jinping, July 2019 (CCTV coverage)

Erdogan said that connected by the ancient Silk Road, Turkish-Chinese friendship had a long history and was now strengthened further. Close Turkish-Chinese relations were significant for regional peace and prosperity. Turkey made efforts for the development of relations with China, and for deepening cooperation. Turkey staunchly persued the one-China policy, the happiness of all Xinjiang nationalities in China’s development was also a fact, and Turkey would never allow anyone to incite disharmony in Turkish-Chinese relations. Turkey resolutely opposed extremism, wanted to enhance mutual trust and strengthen security cooperation. Potential for Turkish-Chinese cooperation was huge, Turkey resolutely upheld the construction of “one belt, one road”, and hoped that the two sides would strengthen cooperation on trade, investment, financial, energy, car building, infrastructure, 5G mobile communication, smart cities, etc., and enhance exchanges in the fields of education, culture, research, etc..

埃尔多安表示,通过千年古丝绸之路连接起来的土中友好源远流长,今天得到进一步加强。密切的土中关系对地区和平繁荣有重要意义。土耳其致力于发展对华关系,深化对华合作。土方坚定奉行一个中国政策,中国新疆地区各民族居民在中国发展繁荣中幸福地生活是个事实,土方不允许任何人挑拨土中关系。土耳其坚定反对极端主义,愿同中方增进政治互信,加强安全合作。土中合作潜力巨大,土方坚定支持“一带一路”建设,希望双方在“一带一路”框架内加强贸易、投资、金融、能源、汽车制造、基础设施、第五代移动通信、智慧城市等领域合作,增进在教育、文化、科研等领域交流。

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan‘s statement in July this year, according to the Chinese government’s website

Mesut Özil‘s statement this month, according to “The Guardian”:

His Instagram message read: “East Turkistan, the bleeding wound of the Ummah, resisting against the persecutors trying to separate them from their religion. They burn their Qurans. They shut down their mosques. They ban their schools. They kill their holy men. The men are forced into camps and their families are forced to live with Chinese men. The women are forced to marry Chinese men.

“But Muslims are silent. They won’t make a noise. They have abandoned them. Don’t they know that giving consent for persecution is persecution itself?”

International Experts bear Testimony to Intuitively-Felt Harmony in Xinjiang

Lots of China experts are there to help “the world learn more about the Chinese autonomous region while beating misinterpretations and distortions with hard facts.” According to Xinhua news agency, they hail from France, Qatar, Sri Lanka, and Egypt (English version). A Chinese version quotes the French scholar as saying that “by personal experience, one could intuitively feel multi-ethnic harmony in Xinjiang (… 通过亲身体验说,中国有56个民族,在新疆可以直观地感受到这种多民族融合).

China’s State Council published a white paper on historical matters concerning Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in northwest China on Sunday.

The full white paper’s English version is only 19 pages long, and doesn’t address the issue of “reeducation” camps. It does, however, concern itself with the issue of slavery under the rule of the Turks, and the Uighurs’ liberation with support from Tang Dynasty troops.

Beijing invites Turkish delegation for fact-finding mission in Xinjiang, says Erdogan advisor

The following is a translation from a short news article on TRT Ankara‘s foreign radio website. On February 4, Amnesty International had published a press release, demanding “an international fact-finding mission to investigate credible allegations that up to one million Turkic Muslims are being arbitrarily detained in ‘political education’ camps across Xinjiang, a region in northwest China”. AI had addressed their demand to the UN Human Rights Council.

TRT World (Chinese), July 4, 2019 — President Erdogan has given a positive response to China’s invitation to examine the Uyghurs’ situation

埃尔多安总统积极回应中方观察维吾尔人状况邀请

Presidential communications director Fahrettin Altun said that Beijing had invited a delegation to carry out an on-site observation on Uyghur life in Xinjiang autonomous region.

总统府通讯署署长阿勒屯(Fahrettin Altun)表示,北京邀请一个代表团前往中国对在新疆自治区生活的维吾尔人的状况进行实地观察。

In a statement published on social media concerning President Erdogan’s China trip, Altun said that during Erdogan’s visit to China, all aspects of relations between Turkey and China had been discussed, including the Uyghurs.

通过社交媒体就总统埃尔多安的中国之行发表声明的阿勒屯说,在埃尔多安总统的中国访问期间,包括维吾尔人在内,土耳其和中国关系的所有方面得到全面讨论。

Altun sermonized:

阿勒屯讲道:

“President Erdogan has made it clear that our only wish is that Uyghurs in China live in peace, happiness and prosperity, and to give our opinions and expectations to our counterparts. Also, the Chinese side invited the Turkish side to send a delegation to China to carry out an on-site observation on Uyghur life in Xinjiang autonomous region. The revered President has responded positively to this invitation.”

“埃尔多安总统表明了维吾尔人在中国生活在和平,幸福和繁荣之中是我们唯一的愿望,并将关于这一问题上观点和期待转达给对方。此外,中方还邀请土耳其方面派遣一支代表团前往中国,以对生活在新疆自治区的维吾尔人状况进行实地观察。尊敬的总统对此邀请作出了积极回应。”

Altun also said that President Erdogan and Chinese State Chairman Xi Jinping have reached consensus in the fields of promoting bilateral trade, investment, research and development, science and technology, civil aviation, tourism, and culture. The two leaders also decided to strengthen the ties [provided by] the gateway of the historic silk road between East and West.

阿勒屯还表示,总统埃尔多安和中国国家主席习近平就推进双边贸易、投资、研发、科学技术、民航、旅游和文化领域达成共识,两位领导人还决定加强历史丝绸之路东西大门之间的纽带。”

CCTV’s main evening news broadcast “xinwen lianbo”, on July 2, quoted Xi Jinping as telling Erdogan that

Practical measures must be taken to promote anti-terrorism cooperation. China appreciates Mr. President’s repeated reiterations not  to allow any forces to engage in anti-Chinese separatist activities from Turkey, and attaches great importance to Turkey’s emphasis on supporting China’s strikes against terrorism. [China] hopes to strengthen cooperation with Turkey in the field of counter-terrorism.

要采取切实行动,推进反恐安全合作。中方赞赏总统先生多次重申不允许任何势力在土耳其从事反华分裂活动,重视土方多次强调支持中方打击恐怖主义,愿同土方加强在国际反恐领域合作。

In summer 2009, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had reportedly referred to Beijing’s policies on Xinjiang as “a genocide. There’s no point in interpreting this otherwise”. Maybe he now sees a point in re-interpreting the situation.
