Rubio Warns of CCP Propaganda at Shangri-La Dialogue

Jun 10, 2022 | Press Releases

Miami, FL — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a statement warning of Chinese Communist Party (CCP) propaganda at the Shangri-La Dialogue, an important Indo-Pacific defense summit taking place in Singapore this weekend.
“The Chinese Communist Party will use this weekend as an opportunity to sell its vision of ‘regional order.’ Attendees should be clear that the CCP’s worldview is fundamentally hostile to the rules-based order,” Rubio said. “This is a regime that seeks to turn the Indo-Pacific into a region that looks much like China itself, where power is centralized in Beijing, dissenting voices are brutally silenced, and might makes right. This is increasingly clear as we see Beijing consolidating power in Hong Kong, preparing to attack Taiwan, and supporting Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. It should serve as a stark warning to Indo-Pacific nations that the CCP cannot be trusted to respect its neighbors’ sovereignty. The future of a CCP-led region is clear, and it would be disastrous for every country in the region except for China.”
