【海外視角】英國商會俱樂部主席Stephen Perry:美國香港法案旨在給中國找麻煩,并非真心帮助香港

事件詳情

英國商業協會四十八家集團俱樂部主席斯蒂芬·佩裏說,美國總統唐納德·特朗普於2019年11月下旬在香港簽署的法案旨在於2020年美國總統大選之前給中國找麻煩。佩裏在接受採訪時指出,中國為人民謀求更好的經濟,而美國則認為這種變化難以接受。他還呼籲結束香港的暴力行為,以便進行討論以尋求長期解決方案。

以下是專家原文及翻譯:

在國際關係中,某個國家就另一個國家的行為開始在本國採取法律行動,這當然是非常不尋常的。但是美國一直是唯一的超級大國,並且相信自己不僅是美國利益的保護者,而且是世界價值的保護者。

他們在許多國家採取了制裁和其他形式的活動。目前,我認為總體情況是美國正在試圖通過經濟行動影響中國的政策行動和方向。從根本上說,(美國對)香港局勢(的影響)是一種經濟行動,旨在給中國大陸在香港的行動帶來麻煩。

因此,至今年年底,隨著美國大選,中國將面臨緊張的局勢。不可否認,中國已是美國選舉過程的一部分。不幸的是,這不是中國第一次被這樣對待,這將很大程度上取決於接下來的四五周內,特朗普總統能否找到辦法,將中國作為年底大選的主要議題。。

以我的經驗來看,我認為美國要做的是讓中國退讓,這樣就不會對美國的超級大國地位構成威脅。我認為美國人誤解了中國的計畫。中國並沒有在40年前或今天早上開始侵蝕美國的權力。中國著手復興國家,成為世界領先的經濟體,並為其人民提供美好的生活和美好的社會。

然而,由於中國經濟規模極其巨大,世界上許多事情都因此發生變化,所以中國這樣做並非沒有道理。但是美國發現很難接受改變。

在到處發生暴力的情況下,在香港做任何事情都非常困難,人們必須希望抗議者能夠停止暴力而不參與暴力,因此可以進行討論,以尋求長期解決香港內部問題的方法。

It's certainly very unusual in international relations for countries to start passing acts in their own country about the conduct of another country in its own country. It is very unusual but the United States has been as the sole superpower and believing itself to be not only the protector of American interests but the protector of world values.

They have taken actions in many countries with sanctions and other forms of activity. At the moment, I think the overall situation is that America is trying to affect China's movement and direction by economic actions. And the situation with Hong Kong is fundamentally an economic action designed to cause problems for China in what it does in Hong Kong.

So we have a tense situation throughout this year at the end of this year and into the whole of next year with the election in the United States. China is part of that election process. Unfortunately it's not the first time China has been caught like this and it will depend very much on what happens in the next 2 3 4 5 weeks as to whether or not President Trump can find a way to remove China as a major issue for the election at the end of the year.

In my experience. I would say that what the United States is trying to do is to get China to back down, so that it does not present a threat to American world power. I think the Americans misunderstand China's plans. China does not set out 40 years ago or this morning, to remove American power. China set out to restore China, as a leading economy of the world, and provide a good life and a good Society for its people.

Now in doing that, many things change in the world because of the size of the Chinese economy and there's not unreasonable for China to do that. But the United States find it difficult to accept change.

It's very difficult to do anything in Hong Kong while there's violence and one must hope that the protestors will pull back and not engage in violence, so the discussion can take place about finding longer-term solutions to the problems within Hong Kong.
