Gardner Statement on the 70th Anniversary of the People’s Republic of China

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO), Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity Policy, released the following statement today regarding the 70th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China:

 

“Communism is a failed ideology that was imposed on the Chinese people against their will and against their celebrated history and traditions,” said Senator Gardner. “As the Chinese Communist Party celebrates the 70th anniversary of its totalitarian rule, over a million Uighurs are imprisoned in labor camps, millions are repressed in Tibet, and millions are on the streets of Hong Kong marching for autonomy and human rights. The United States will always stand with the people of China to have the freedom to choose their destiny.”
