On Wednesday, Emanuel and two other nominees for the Asian ambassador—Nicholas Burns and Jonathan Kaplan—will represent the United States in Singapore—to attend the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The hearing is a long-term threat posed by Beijing.

Emanuel told the senator: “China aims to conquer through division, and the US strategy is to achieve security through unity. This regional unity is built on the shoulders of the US-Japan alliance.” He believes that the next few years-if It is confirmed that the few years he will spend in Tokyo-are decisive.

Emanuel said: “Our partnership with Japan in the next three years will determine the posture of the challenges and opportunities the United States faces in the next 30 years.” At an “inflection point” and hope to gain American leadership.

“They are desperate for America and go all out,” Emanuel said.

‘Great changes’

After reports that China conducted a hypersonic missile test, the 61-year-old testified in front of the senator — which was later denied by Beijing officials — and shortly afterwards, the Chinese Air Force conducted a record flight into Taiwan’s airspace. frequency. North Korea has conducted a series of missile tests in recent weeks and claimed that it successfully tested a submarine-launched ballistic missile on Tuesday, adding to regional tensions.

Emanuel touted the US-Japan military alliance and Tokyo’s move to increase defense spending above the long-term cap of 1% of GDP, calling it a “tremendous change in thinking” that would help cope with rising threat levels.

Emanuel said: “This reflects that they know they can play a bigger role and face greater threats.” “This is also a fortress-it ensures that China hears that this is part of the world we are going to stay in because Our allies, our number one ally in the region, are now stepping up efforts in ways that were impossible before.”

Emanuel also emphasized other aspects of US-Japan cooperation, including investment in climate change, infrastructure and intellectual property protection, and opportunities to strengthen coordination with Japan in key areas of supply chain security, especially microchips.

“I think Japan is ready for the next stage [the] U.S.-Japan relations,” Emanuel said. “As I said, this is an opportunity to truly begin to strengthen the economic integration of the largest and third largest economies. When the two are close together, this is a very, very powerful force. ”

“These are not challenges, but opportunities… When we do this together, we not only send a signal to China, but more importantly, we send a signal to the United States. We are strong because of our allies,” he said. Said.

China denies testing a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile, saying it is a spacecraft

In contrast, Emanuel said, “China has a strategy: a one-way road that is beneficial to Beijing. Everyone in the region, most importantly, Japan, knows that the United States’ commitment in the Indo-Pacific region will redouble its efforts to make They are safer and make the area safer and more open.”

“This is a system based on values, not based on the tendencies of a country. Any challenge must be dealt with by the combined forces of all our allies and friends in the region,” he added.

The post of special envoy will be the former Chicago mayor and Democratic political agent’s first international job. Emanuel served as an adviser to Chicago politicians and former President Bill Clinton, chief of staff to former President Barack Obama and a member of the House of Representatives, and has become an amazing fundraiser for the Democratic Party all the way.

When he was asked in the opening minutes to defend him against the 2014 police shooting of a black man named Laquan McDonald (Laquan McDonald), and was by Oregon Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley (Jeff Merkley) When questioned further, his term as mayor briefly cast a shadow over the hearing.

Emanuel-he was accused of suppressing a video that contradicted the police’s account of the killing, which he denied-appeared before the committee exactly seven years before the day McDonald’s was hit 16 times, most of the bullet hits He limped on the ground after hitting him. This incident caused some progressive House Democrats to strongly protest his nomination.

“I think it’s important to actually weigh this.”

Merkley was a senator who raised this issue during the nomination process. He asked Emanuel to provide a written response to further explain his behavior at the time.

“In this era when the nation is responding to the challenges of black lives, when (Chicago) city councilors and state representatives and state senators say this is a problem, during your tenure as mayor, there was close cooperation between the mayor’s office to cook. Basically, the publication of information is discouraged, and major reforms are not carried out…I think it is important for this committee to actually weigh this point,” Merkley said.

In the early days of the hearing, Emanuel gave a lengthy speech explaining and defending his decision at the time, and said that he did not find that he had done anything wrong.

Emanuel said: “The inspector general and the special prosecutor conducted many investigations, and they both paid attention to what happened afterwards.” “And no one hinted or concluded that anyone in my office or myself did it. Anything inappropriate.”

“As you know, there is a long-standing agreement and practice of not publishing anything during the investigation, so as not to harm witnesses or endanger the prosecution. This is a long-standing practice, not only in Chicago, but across the country,” Emanuel said.


But he said that caution “suddenly became another very important value, which is the deep suspicion, distrust, and suspicion in the community that the authorities investigate the authorities and trace the truth of the incident.”

“The longer the investigation takes place, the greater the distrust and suspicion about what really happened here. This is not to find out what happened and find out the truth, but to whitewash and cover up,” Emanuel said.

He added that although he changed supervision during his first term, he did not fully understand the level of distrust of American blacks in police and other institutions. These changes are “best and marginal. I think I am solving this problem. I obviously missed the level of mistrust and suspicion that existed.”

Emanuel quoted the letters he received from Chicago black community leaders and uncle McDonald’s in support of his nomination, and told the senators, “In the past seven years, I have not considered this in a day or a week. Considered the’hypothesis’.”
