Mélenchon keeps his words, despite criticism within the Nupes

The former LFI leader denounced the “thunderclaps” heard, especially in the Nupes camp, after calling Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan a “provocation”.

The former leader of La France Insoumise does not budge. He criticized Jean-Luc Melenchon on the left for calling Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the island a “provocation,” and on Saturday he signed a new post on his blog, reusing the term and reasserting that “there is not only one China.”

In his first blog post on Thursday, he also felt, amid the tensions between Beijing and Taipei, that “the Chinese will solve the problem between them.”

In a new publication on Saturday, he said he was “horrified” by the “strange reactions” and “cries of anger” from his critics, while “we should not want a new war front.”

“What kind of fear dominates the debate? Where has the energetic president of Franco-Chinese friendships Mr. Raffarin gone? And the signatories of the Union for Popular Movement cooperation agreement with the CPC? Fabien Roussel (National Secretary of the CPC, editor’s note), after his recent friendship trip To China? The adequacy of the first and the fearful caution of the second terror bothers me,” wrote Jean-Luc Melenchon.

To repeat his arguments: “I have only repeated the abiding doctrine of our country (France, let us remember) since 1965 regarding China. There is only one China,” “This is also regulated by international agreements accepted by our country. And members of the United Nations ”, and “China and the United States undertake respecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the other side.” He also stressed the “very cold reception that Mrs. Nancy Pelosi received since his provocation in Tokyo and Seoul.”

The call for “non-alignment” in Paris

The former presidential candidate questions whether his critics “believe millennial China will bend their positions,” and points to the danger of seeing Beijing “enter into a closer rapprochement with Russia” while “forming” a more homogeneous bloc between the United States and Europe “at whatever cost” in terms of enslavement and the danger of war.”

“Macron’s France has given up playing a role in this part of the world,” he lamented, and called for “non-alignment” with Paris, at the heart of his vision of international relations.

And while the Chinese Embassy in France thanked him in a tweet, he defends himself by retweeting a sentence from his previous post: “Whatever size and level of criticism the Chinese government may be directed at, we must refuse to condone war on China. To satisfy US views on Taiwan” .

Within the left-wing Nupes coalition, EELV National Secretary Julien Bayot on Friday denounced a “rather outdated vision” and “real pessimism regarding geopolitics” on the part of Jean-Luc Mélenchon, while Socialist Party chief Olivier Faure considered that “if Nancy’s visit Pelosi for Taiwan is under discussion, the will of the Taiwanese to live in a democracy is not.”
