Deputy Secretary of State US Department, Wendy R. Sherman had written testimony on “Evaluating U.S.- China policy in the Era of Stragtegic Competition” at Senate Foreign relations committee on February 09, 2023. Sherman pledges to "hold accountable those involved in human rights violations in Tibet and Xinjiang, support the people of Hong Kong, and do everything possible to bring home" Americans unjustly detained by China.
“In addition, the PRC is the only competitor with the intent and means to reshape the international order. We see evidence of this point all over the world, including the PRC's provocative actions in the South China Sea, human rights violations in Hong Kong, Tibet, and Xinjiang, use of economic coercion, and threats against Taiwan”, testified Wendy Sherman.
She testified that the United States will continue to work with allies and partners to address the People's Republic of China's transnational repression efforts, including the establishment of so-called "overseas police stations." These stations raise serious issues of sovereignty, as well as the rights and interests of Chinese diaspora communities worldwide.
She further noted that “We will compete vigorously with the PRC, while managing that competition responsibly. We will maintain open lines of communication, so we can keep miscalculations from veering into conflict and responsibly manage the competition between our countries.”
