China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi declared on Tuesday that “refugees should return to their homeland” and made it clear China does not want any more of them.
“Nations in the Middle East are carrying an immense burden in accepting refugees from Syria and other places,” Wang said, speaking from Beirut. “Refugees are not immigrants and are roaming the world, after losing their homeland. I look forward to the time when all refugees return to their homeland to rebuild their hometowns.” …
“If refugees enter China, the Chinese people will suffer tremendously. Social anxiety will escalate,”
Taking in refugees is hardly in China’s interest, is it? Political correctness is only a western affliction.
