Chinese ambassador: 'Pompeo has lost his mind'
3 Comments

Chinese Ambassador to Chile Xu Bu on Sunday slammed U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's “malicious” accusation against China during his visit to Chile, saying “Pompeo has lost his mind and gone too far.”

Pompeo said Friday in Santiago that Chinese investments are “corrosive, giving life to corruption, and eroding good governance."

“Such accusations are absurd,” Xu said in an interview with the La Tercera newspaper. "The economic and trade cooperation between China and Chile has brought tangible benefits to the development of the Chilean economy," Xu continued.

The United States has not made substantial contributions to the economic development of Latin American countries but accuses China of its economic and trade cooperation with Latin America and its investment in Latin America. Mr. Pompeo is a hypocrite,” said the diplomat.

He added that last year, China invested more than 6 billion U.S. dollars in Chile, and China-Chile trade exceeded 42.8 billion U.S. dollars, far higher than Chile-U.S. trade of 24 billion U.S. dollars. The benefits of China-Chile economic and trade cooperation are reciprocal.

“The U.S. is not an honest partner,” Xu stressed.

"Pompeo affirms that the U.S. is a reliable partner in Latin America, and I suppose that it underestimates the memory of Latin Americans. Historically, the United States has treated Latin America as its 'backyard,' imposing frequent military interventions or sanctions," he said.

“There are numerous examples, including the relentless blockade imposed by the United States against Cuba for more than half a century, President Trump's construction of a separation wall along the border between the United States and Mexico, and the very little assistance provided by the United States to Haiti and Central American countries. Chileans are also well aware that Chile's development achievements are not the result of American charity,” Xu elaborated.

    Since the Chileans have nothing at all they are a booming market for the crap that China manufactures. Walmarts of South America. I'll bet the Chinks are getting Chilean copper for pennies on the dollar.

      They obviously prefer doing business, well twice as much business, with China than the USA. Venezuela, deja vu ?
      Something to do with 200 years interference in their elections.....

      Track I was a U.S. State Department plan designed to persuade the Chilean Congress, through outgoing Christian Democratic President Eduardo Frei Montalva, to confirm conservative runner-up Jorge Alessandri as president......
      Track II. The agency would find military officers willing to support a coup and support them.

    China has also invested in Venezuela.

    Lu Kang, the foreign ministry spokesperson, indicated that US “smear” campaigns would not change that.

    “A lie will remain a lie, even if repeated a thousand times,” he told reporters. “Monsieur Pompeo might as well take a break.”

      So, your purpose for posting a link and parroting what the Chinese said, is because you agree with them and support Communists?

        I bet he dresses up in the lastest Socialist-Gay-Communist outfit that those types wear at their Flosom Gay parades in San Fran. Between his ANTIFA meetings, posting in here, and hanging out in truck stops he does seem to be a busy poster nit-wit type.

        NB Communism is about no private property, all is state owned (communal). The younger of the two Chinese engineers I met was desperate to get a mortgage on a flat in Shanghai. Just checked, 1,000 sq ft for $ 725,000.
        Very capitalist.

          Do you have Mao posters on your wall or Hitler? Which one? if you were Hetrosexual at least you would have AOC posters instead.

        Mr. Goldsworthy can certainly speak for himself but as a life-long anti Communist I will tell you that virtually anything said by a Chinese authority will be orders of magnitude more likely to be true than the blizzard of lies spewed out by Pompeo and his gang of lying neocon thugs.

        Well, there are 1,400 millions of them, and I haven't met them all, but the ones I have met were ok.
        That was in business - and they do not ram their politics down your throat just to do a deal.
        The link was just to show that the Chilean ambassador was not one person talking out of turn.

          Politics like your Leftist-Fascist Democraps do with Climate change and other Lib strings attached? Are you the channel dimwit by chance?

            Now, now. Just because his discourse reminds one of the emanations from the north end of a southbound Clydesdale is no reason to discredit his abysmal stupidity. Be nice...
