Republicans have accused Special Presidential Envoy for Climate ジョン・ケリーは、遅くまで気候特使の役割を続けることを計画しています of lobbying against a congressional ban on Uyghur forced labor in order to protect climate talks.

It doesn’t get worse than John Kerry,” former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley previously フォックスニュースに語った. “He’s willing to accept Chinese slave labor to promote his radical climate agenda. What happened to defending human rights?”

ケリー raised eyebrows earlier this month while responding to a question about whether or not he discussed the issue of Chinese forced labor used in developing technologies, like the production of solar panels.

The climate envoy said U.S. concerns regarding forced labor have beenarticulatedto Chinese officials, but added, “That’s not my lane here.

Kerry said Reaganthought the Soviet Union was the Evil Empireand yet still was able to sit down at the table.

The point I’m making is that even as there were egregious human rights issues, which Ronald Reagan called them out on it, we have to find a way forward to make the world safer, to protect our countries and act in our interests,” 彼は言った.

We can do and must do the same thing now,” 彼は続けた. “Yes we have issues, a number of different issues, but first and foremost, this planet must be protected.
