US may punish China for coronavirus refusal to repay debts


US Republican senators are tough on hygiene in China and urge Beijing to be punished for hiding the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak that led to a pandemic and global health crisis. For starters, they want to write off part of the US debt held by the People’s Bank of China.


Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn took the initiative. She was supported by Senator from South Carolina Lindsay Graham - chairman of the US Senate Judiciary Committee.

This is the third pandemic from China. They come from these dirty markets, where they have mice and monkeys with a virus that is then transported through food

Graham said sharply on Fox News.

At the same time, Senator Josh Hawley admonished. He, in collaboration with three colleagues, introduced to the US Congress a bill on the need for an international investigation into China’s actions during the outbreak of COVID-19 and the creation of a “compensation payment mechanism."

In this regard, it can be assumed that Washington found a way to write off part of its own debt. So, non-repayment of debt will be a logical continuation of US behavior in relation to China. It is not in vain that the US leadership regularly calls COVID-19 - the "Chinese virus." By the way, China has invested more than $ 1 trillion in US government bonds and is its largest holder.

    As you said, you yourself know who:

    Tormented by dust, fleeing the ships, swallow.

    This is about the Chinese. And as Ostap used to say, there are many ways of honest (legal) ways of taking money.

      I beg of you. Americans break off.
      The simplest and most effective response of China to this impudence is the NATIONALIZATION of all Amerov enterprises in its territory.
      And that's all.

    Projects dofiga .... but there are few real cases.
    Trump still boasts that he agreed with the Chinese ... and a new trade war?

    Putin also said:

    Tormented by dust, fleeing the ships, swallow.

    So what? In England, for the oligarchs, grace is still, but, it seems, the only one !!!! returned just swallows dust in the courts ....

    - So what ... - Well, will the Americans "throw" China for money ... or not throw it ... - time will tell ... - In the end, China itself has thrown anyone and continues to throw .. - and Belarus; and Turkmenistan; and the same Kazakhstan ... -About Russia and even not worth mentioning ...
    - It was just that “moment of truth" that came when Russia’s actions in such a situation will demonstrate the real state of affairs today ...
    - Will Russia stop supporting China so unconditionally ... as it was before ... or not ...
    - In my opinion (maybe this is a mistake) ..- today our guarantor has somewhat changed his attitude towards China ...
    - It is difficult to say how Russian-Chinese relations will continue to develop there ... - but they will surely undergo changes ...
    - But while Russia today again began to buy American "bonds" ...

    US may punish China for coronavirus refusal to repay debts

    The title is not correct. no US can steal Chinese money. So it will be more correct. And to punish - apparently, the author is used to treating his masters in this way. It’s probably hard to get rid of a slave in yourself.
    The request to the citizens who are talking about the purchase of overseas bonds is still to leave a reference, otherwise this news somehow doesn’t come across and the words that are bad for the storytellers are obvious. sad

    If the States refuse to repay the debt, then China will nationalize ALL foreign enterprises in the country, and the States will remain with a mountain of finely cut paper.

    Fans, don't upset me with your level of education. And those who do not believe that Russia is buying up US debt. Tap on the keyboard with your fingers and the Internet will give you everything if you don’t read the news in the morning. If it doesn’t work out, write to let me know by name, although it’s already visible.
