“China doesn’t face any enemies,” said Grant Newsham, a senior fellow at the Center for Security Policy, during an Aug. 18 interview with NTD, a sister media outlet of The Epoch Times. “There’s nobody who’s ever called for attacking China.”
Newsham said that the behavior of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which rules China as a single-party state, demonstrated a rejection of the international rules and economic order that had allowed it to develop into a major power in the first place.
“There’s never been a country that is more welcomed into the civilized community of nations,” Newsham said. “That’s been going on for 50 years. China has been accommodated on every front in hopes that it would become… a sort of liberal, peaceful country.”
