Topic: U.S. Conference of Mayors
Washington, D.C. – Yesterday, Wednesday, October 8th, 2020, Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) urged the U.S. Conference of Mayors to reevaluate the 157 sister-city partnerships between U.S. and Chinese communities, which ostensibly promote cultural exchange and economic development.
“The recent actions of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), however, suggest that sister-city partnerships may be China’s newest political weapon,” the Senators wrote. “Clearly, the CCP hides behind the veil of soft diplomacy and mutual benefit until their foreign partners exhibit ideological nonconformity… Sister-city partnerships may leave American communities vulnerable to Chinese espionage and economic coercion. With that, we urge you to heed the CCP’s strategic intentions and attempts to exploit our freedoms at the Federal and local levels.”
