"consulate" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"You're listening to Bloomberg opinion on Bloomberg radio I'm June grosso The Biden administration is considering reopening the U.S. consulate in east Jerusalem which would serve Palestinians in the West Bank In his latest piece for Bloomberg opinion author and columnist zev shavitz says the move could lead to a clash in Washington He joins me now So explain what the U.S. consulate in east Jerusalem stands for The Jerusalem consulate was originally founded in 1824 to when there was no Easter west Jerusalem It was just the old city And its job was to look out for American interests with the most church interest in Jerusalem In 1949 the jordanians captured the eastern part of Jerusalem in the next few Jordan And the U.S. had an embassy in Jordan in Amman and had put a council at injury in 1967 after Israel conquered Jerusalem in subsequently the next day The conflict in east Jerusalem dealt with Palestinian affairs primarily and there was a conflict in Westeros and a U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv Under president Trump America moved the embassies and the council to Jerusalem And it closed the consulate in east Jerusalem That is to say el Jerusalem And that's the genesis of that council So President Biden has a different take than president Trump on this He wants to reopen the consulate in east Jerusalem What's been the reaction to that Well the reaction in Israel's official reaction is completely negative The Israel government wants to make it clear that Jerusalem is one dividable city and that it's the capital of Israel The American government thinks that I believe it thinks that Jerusalem could be part of the Palestinian state Ever is such a state And that's the disagreement The problem that I pointed to in my column is a political problem largely which is that Israelis understand that the Biden administration wants to undo as much of the Trump policies here as it can But on the other hand there's a wall to wall virtually a long wall support for keeping Jerusalem in letting any thing that might either be interfere with that happen which includes the confluence in east Jerusalem And therefore what I wrote in the column and what I believe is that whether it's a good idea or a bad idea on some higher level on the political it's impossible It knows where the government could possibly give back permission to account for the Palestinian oriented consulate in east Jerusalem And so it won't happen The U.S. needs the consent of Israel According to the State Department it does And certainly according to the Israeli it's a little more certified or assigned to the conflict in east Jerusalem The Senate as far as the Senate is concerned are both Republican senators and democratic senators of the same mind well they've been there was a letter of I think 200 or slightly more Republican Congress members asserting that those positions correct is correct I don't know about the Senate I assume that there will be a similar number of Republicans in the Senate and support Israel's position As far as Democrats are concerned it's interesting I don't know the answer to that There are certainly many Democrats in both the House and the Senate who I believe will have a very hard time trying to force Israel to accept a consulate that it doesn't want In its capital city But I don't have a vote count yet because it has a signature count because as far as I know that one hasn't taken place in the democratic House and Senate or for that matter in the Republican sense And so the prime minister of Israel is sort of counting on the fact that Joe Biden doesn't want to add this challenge to the many international challenges he already has Yeah I think that's fair to say We're putting in a different way The United States foreign policy now is confronting a lot of issues starting with China And the Russian buildup now on the Ukraine border The Iranian nuclear negotiations which seem to be solved And on and on It's a very big agenda of things which are truly American major American interests And I think that to the United States while they would like to have that consulate and while they would like to do some peacemaking if possible the Israel Palestine question it's quite far down on their agenda For Israel it's at the very top of the very top of its agenda And that's why I think there's a power disparity Surviving some nice thing to do And for better it's absolutely essential for premise to benefit Absolutely essential for his political survival and the survival of the government or in fact any future government in Israel So then there's no contest There's not going to be an east Jerusalem consulate I don't think so I mean the United States can certainly pressure Israel into doing many things because Israel is a client virtually acquired state of the United States in many ways And America's Israel's biggest friend and Israel is a recipient of a great deal of American support All of that is true And on most issues any Israeli government would be very attentive to the requests of the U.S. but on this particular issue on the issue of Jerusalem even Israeli prime minister were to want to do that He wouldn't be able to politically So it's sort of a more point whereas if Biden doesn't get his way on this I don't think that anything will happen politically There'll be some disappointed diplomats in the State Department I imagine but beyond that I don't think it's really a major issue for him Thanks uh That's a chauvet author and columnist for Bloomberg opinion Coming up on Bloomberg opinion is the

NY Rep. Claudia Tenney Shares Her Backstory and Connection to the Former Yugoslavia

"First welcome back to our one on one end studio in discussion with New York's congresswoman Claudia teddy. For those who aren't familiar with your backstory. I didn't even know it until you came in today. You said you mentioned my book, and then you said you sold me on TV and you bought my book, which talks about my parents who escaped Hungary under communism and then mentions what was happening next door in Yugoslavia. Share with us who aren't familiar or who aren't from your district, your connection to the Balkans in the Eastern Europe. I'm not of Yugoslavia in descent or Balkan descent, but I did actually see you and I said, oh, look, you know, because one of my jobs when I worked at the former Yugoslav consulate, which is obviously gone because of the war. We're still look for people in the Balkans, people in the region, and I just, you know, anyone with a sort of the accident, even though Hungarian is not similar to several creations to different route language, I just said, oh, who's this guy? Oh, he's talking about hungry. Interesting because of all that was happening and Yugoslavia being so unique, technically not behind the iron curtain. Tito was able to keep him out of the common form. So I went to Yugoslavia as a student in 1981, 40 years ago, just for a study group and ended up falling in love with the place to just so diverse and interesting and continued to stay there. Work for the consulate worked on the Olympics in Sarajevo in 1984. Learn the language, you know, just continue to go back and then obviously through the war, it was a tough time for me. I had friends from every part of the country, the former years of everywhere. Because we all worked in the consulate together, and so that's been my connection and just living in a country that was communist and then seeing the transformation since the war and them trying to emerge as a market economy, and reading your book where you hear about you're talking about some of the things that happened and how a lot of Hungarians were trying to cross through Yugoslavia and get to freedom and how Tito basically turned them in. And they read the benevolent dictator who was Marshall, Joseph pizza, right? Right, yeah, so called benevolent dictator, and that's where I, you know, I think we're on this moment in American history where people should learn that when they say we have communism we've never just done it quite right, and we had a benevolent dictator in Tito, not a benevolent dictator. Tito had a dissident camp where people were tortured and killed on a barren island in the Adriatic Sea. So it's all these communists. And he played and he played the nationalities. Right. Slovenes vice the Croatians, the Croatians versus the Serbs. Yeah, and technically he was Croatian, but first and foremost he was a communist. Right. He was able to bridge the gap and keep an allied relationship with the Americans and with kind of keeping everyone at bay to maintain this sort of artificial union of these countries and Yugoslavia, which wants Tito died. You know, they devolved into war within about ten

Taliban Announces Formation of New Afghan Government

"The taliban announced a new government in afghanistan. that's not likely to get a lot of support from western nations. It does not include any women or members from the last afghan government's leadership instead. This new interim government is stacked with taliban veterans who were in charge of the hardline government. Twenty years ago. Several of them are listed by the us and united nations as global terrorists. For example. the key post of interior minister was given to a man. Who's on the fbi's most wanted list. He led a network. That's blamed for many deadly attacks and kidnappings and he's believed is still holding at least one american hostage besides him. Other cabinet members used to be inmates at guantanamo detention camp and at least one of the leaders is said to have ties to the al qaeda terror group that was responsible for the attacks on nine eleven. The taliban says these appointments are temporary but they have not said how long the last who is going to take over next or if there might be elections for now. The taliban is also urging foreign diplomats embassies consulates and humanitarian organisations to come back to afghanistan all western nations left when. Us troops withdrew last month. The us and other countries also froze afghanistan's funding. That's desperately needed as much as eighty percent of the country's budget comes from the international community but global leaders in lenders say they're waiting to see how the taliban will treat the opposition women and minorities before they send money

"In turkey today the trial is resuming of twenty. Six people accused of involvement in the murder of jamalco shoji in london. One of mr khashoggi's friends. He's been in touch with his fiance. Says they're trying to stay positive in spite of the grim. It's more than two years. Since the veteran saudi journalist was suffocated in his country's consulate in istanbul his body sawn into pieces by a squad of assassins flown in on private jets after four nine denials. Saudi arabia has admitted that the missing journalists jamila shoji died during his visits to the country's constitution is the trial will be of little consequence. None of the suspects is in turkish custody and it poses little threat to mohammed bin salman saudi arabia's crown prince and facto ruler who many believe to be ultimately responsible. America's reaction to the grisly murder is a window into how the country thinks about dealing with its historical and the power dynamics in a region riven by religious divides and proxy wars. The trump administration held back a report on metric a shoji's murder a report that the biden administration published last week concluding the crown prince approved the operation despite imposing sanctions on some saudis.

Well, nothing really. They were just existing. But of course with Tibet and China on the historically fraught relationship. Apparently the Chinese want to keep tabs on people in On Tibetans to make sure they're not doing anything untoward or anything that could potentially damage China, or perhaps speak out in the United States about about China or about treatment of their relatives, so on long presented himself to a Chinese consular officials As someone who could help and who could use his position in the NYPD E to further the interests of China because he would have the power to either maybe question people to an extent that others wouldn't or he'd have access to things. You could see how he could show himself as an asset. And of course, using his position that way is it is it is not proper. He also, according to prosecutors allied to the military. When he failed to disclose how his brother was in the People's Liberation Army in China and how his father was part of the Communist Party in China. So all that together, gets in these federal charges, and he was arrested yesterday at his home All my island. He you know, is kind of a decorated officer. He's been the community liaison officer in this precinct in Queens. One of the few ethnic Tibetans in the department on DH, someone who can reach out on behalf of that community on DH. Of course, he was doing it now on behalf of China, according to the feds, and No, no. Do they think that the US has anything to worry about? Was he able to get any information that could be compromising to us? Doesn't appear so he may have given the Chinese consular officials some some insight into the inner workings of the NYPD. But I'm not sure how useful that that ultimately would prove to be It's more that he was not Frank about who you know who he and his family were, but also that he was appeared to have divided loyalties. And then when they did arrest him as he admitted to all of this in the sense of his, he said, Yeah, Here's what I did. And here's what I'm doing and do, do they, eh? Did he admit to it and B? Do they think that he's got any accomplices? Uh, he he did not admit to anything that we know of. He was arrested yesterday. If you're briefly in court did not enter. A plea on DH was held without bail. We don't know whether he had accomplices. Court records on Leigh mention unnamed consular officials. India in the Chinese consulate in New York, one of those officials on long apparently referred to as boss. That's easy enough. Does he have a family? We've got a family We know of in China on DH, apparently a connected with the Chinese Communist Party, his brothers and the People's Liberation Army. But we don't I don't think he has any family here. He's not mentioned in in court records. Right. So the the you know whether he was doing this Because he thought it don't mean something in China. Whether he thought he was doing this for because he was somehow recruited. That part wasn't exactly spelled out in court records. All right, Aaron, thanks for the update on this, So I'm just kind of just a weird story. That's It's crazy. You know, the spy within, you know, he'd say course, made the front cover of the New York Post as such sure the posting could never. They never fail. All right, Erin, thanks so much. See you later. That's a B C's Aaron Carter Ski It's just weird. So I don't know how much information he really was able to give. He put your life on the line to go. Eh? No, Tibetans. They're doing anything back to you. Boss. All right. To each his own. But you got caught, buddy. Let's get back to some of the stories we're watching in the fight..

We'll be talking with the acting Di HS Secretary Chad Wolf. We're joined online at this moment by representative Jim Banks. He's the representative from Indiana's third District Navy veteran, sits on the House Armed Services Committee and his co chair of the Future of Defense Task Force and a member of the House China Task Force. He's also running to chair the Republican Study Committee. Next term represented bank Thanks so much for joining the show. They've been good to be with you. So let's talk about China. Obviously, we're now in a diplomatic row with China after we told them to basically get out of Houston they were using their embassy apparently is a spying center and China has been routinely at something to steal America's intellectual property. They've been cheating on the trade deals. They're currently shipping. Apparently a 1,000,000 were Muslims into concentration camps. And they've just invaded Hong Kong, effectively speaking what sort of measures should the United States be taking against China? And how should we view them should view them as sort of a Geo strategic foe or is just a mildly antagonistic nation. You know, First of all been for 40 years. We live in a fairy tale in America that we can turn a blind eye to China's abuses of toward America, stealing our job stealing our intellectual property. For 40 years we've had we've had leaders at the helm who have turned a blind eye taken a soft approach living in this fairy tale this somehow China is going to emerge as a free democratic nation that wants to play ball with the United States of America just for 40 years, it's failed that that policy has failed. Until Donald Trump campaigned on a on being tough on China has taken a very tough posture over the four years that he's been president. The actions of the last 24 hours of shooting the consulate. And Houston was necessary. We what we know now is that that was the hub of they say 80% of counter Ah, uh, espionage activities in the United States on China's behalf in the C. C. P s behalf has been run out of the Houston Consulate. So shutting it down with a was a tough act by Secretary Pompeo. But it's just skimming the surface of the FBI said here in the last few days that they opened up a new counter intelligence investigation against China every 10 hours. Theory Erica people don't hear a lot about that, because the American media doesn't report it. Because it sits on the side of once again of a president's been who's been right on these issues was tough on China. The American media. The mainstream media is never going to report that. Because it shows that President Trump that present Trump is exactly what he should do to project a tough posture toward China and which is what the new era of American activity needs needs to project represented banks. What kind of tools is America actually have at its disposal? Obviously, when it comes to Hong Kong, Hong Kong's freedom is now gone, and we've actually watch for the first time. Really since the post Cold War era, an entire state being taken over by another state, and nobody has basically said a word Europe has has run the other way. The British government has run the other way. Nobody seems willing to stand up to China. At the same time, nobody wants to get into a shooting war with the world. Second most populous country after India. So what exactly should the United States be doing in order to take a counter to the Chinese aggression? You know if you listen to Secretary Pompeo speech, by the way, I think the most important and pivotal speech that he's given As well as Secretary of State was at the Nixon library appropriately where Secretary Pam Peo talked about rallying the free world to challenge communist China. I mean, we are whether whether we want to use terms like the new colt, or we are in and your cold or toward China. So what tools that we have at our disposal? We talk about Hong Kong. I've heard Secretary Pompeo National Security Advisor O'Brien both talk about moving the financial hub that is in Hong Kong away from Hong Kong, Maybe maybe recognizing Taiwan Maybe moving that financial that financial hub to North North America Tio friendlier places we can't if if if China is not going to accept the And and recognize the freedoms of the people of Hong Kong. Then we shouldn't reward China by continuing to let it let him have it both ways. So we have many tools at our disposal from continued Some sanctions or acting out like we never had before, and taking actions like Reed is shutting down consulates and making it a large ideological statement. By doing so. Now, as you know, we've talked before about the China Task Force. I'm a part of. Unfortunately, Democrats refused to join us in this very important endeavor. But by October 1st, the China Task Force will publish a.

Cloudy through mid morning than gradual clearing high temperatures today from the low sixties that the coast with low eighties inland. Good morning. It's seven of seven. This is morning edition from NPR News. I'm David Greene and I'm Rachel Martin this morning. China has ordered the closure of the U. S consulate in the Chinese city of Chung do its retaliation after the U. S. Did something similar, ordered China's consulate in Houston to shut down earlier this week. The Chinese have until today to get out of that diplomatic facility. So where is all this going in an already front relationship? NPR's Emily Thing is with us from Beijing. Good morning, Emily. Morning, Rachel. I mean, there have been an awful lot of retaliatory measures between the US and China this month. Can you Can you explain at this point? What do we know about why the two countries have gotten to this point where they're shutting down each other's consulates? China made clear today that it was only shutting down the U. S consulate in Chengdu as retaliation in response to the U. S decision to close its consulate and then it made this very cryptic allegation at today is Foreign Ministry briefing in Beijing made Wanda He's in several employees at the consulate, engage in activities not in accordance with their identities, interfered in China's internal affairs and hurt China's national security interests. He's effectively alleging that they conducted espionage. In the U. S consulate. The US government has also not giving us a thorough accounting of white decided to shut down the Chinese consulate in Houston, but have made it clear that the closure pertains to specific cases of industrial espionage as well. Yesterday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered this major speech about confronting China and in that speech, he said, the U. S closed down. China's Houston consulate because it was a quote hub of spying and intellectual property theft, which China, of course denies. I mean, the two countries have made these kinds of allegations I mean, often between over over many years. How seriously might this particular moment damage the relationship This is quite serious because it's the actual decoupling of some of the foreign policy and trade institutions between the two countries. It's consulates that are being shut down, not embassies. Consulates don't really set foreign policy. They are important regional notes. For governments to promote trade and investment to manage the exchange of people's between the two countries, and two do outreach. And right now, it's not clear whether the diplomats at the two consulates in Chengdu in Houston can stay once the concepts are closed, and neither governments have have responded to my career's about this. But in China, foreign policy experts and officials are very defiant. Truth for Long is an International Asians expert at Beijing University. And, he says without the U. S. China will survive. It will thrive and the U. S. Cannot change the trend of China's development. China's technology and military will continue to progress, if not a little more slowly without the U. S. He also said to me that he fears military military confrontation could be on the table. And even if the U. S proceeds at this rate that U. S China relations could be severed as well. Well, so China's always playing a really long game, right? I mean, what have you learned about how the Chinese see this particular moment? The downward spiral of this relationship right now? The foreign policy experts I've talked to are taking a wait and see approach. They think that Theo us is trying to policy depends largely on who the US chooses its president in November, and right now, what they're trying to do is maintain relationships on DH strike a balance of not trying to further escalate tensions while still looking like it's standing up to the Americans.

"Global fight escalates again. Today's move to close the Chinese consulate in Houston is the latest action by the Trump Administration against Beijing. Nick Shifrin reports on what is at stake. In the courtyard of China's Houston consulate Chinese staff in a hurry. They burned documents in drums last night after the administration ordered the consulate closed, citing a pattern of Chinese theft and espionage. We're setting out clear expert ations for how the Chinese Communist Party is going to behave. And when they don't we're going to take actions that protect the American People. Administration and intelligence officials tell PBS NewsHour, the Chinese have used the Houston consulate as a hub for espionage. Just yesterday, The Department of Justice for the first time accused Chinese hackers of working for both personal gain and the Communist Party. China has now taken its place alongside Russia. Iran and North Korea in that shameful club of nations that provide a safe haven for cyber criminals in exchange for those criminals being on call for the benefit of the state. But senior officials tell a PBS NewsHour today was also about diplomatic reciprocity in January and fears of covert the U. S evacuated its Wuhan consulate. It is not reopen because of a dispute over whether US employees after quarantine and take over 19 tests upon arrival. The Chinese airports longer term U. S officials say they want to reduce their footprint in China. In addition to the Beijing Embassy, the US has five consulate's on the Chinese mainland and the Hong Kong Consulate. Senior officials say they've accepted the likely permanent closure of one consulate and intend to move it elsewhere in Asia. Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Long been warned of that likely closure today. China strongly condemns the decision and urges the U. S side to immediately recall the wrong decision. Otherwise, China will take a legitimate and necessary countermeasures. Publically. Chinese diplomats emphasize mutual respect and criticize US policy is self defeating. Foreign minister Long E. Gave a major speech on July the night. The current China policy of the U. S. Is based on ill informed strategic miscalculation, and it's fraught with emotions and whims and mccarthyist bigotry. It's suspicion about China, which is totally uncalled for, has reached the point of paranoia. The administration is clear it will continue to target and penalize China until behavior changes After Beijing passed legislation that restricted Hong Kong's freedoms. President Trump signed a bill that allowed new sanctions.

"Setting out clear expert ations for how the Chinese Communist Party is going to behave, and when they don't we're going to take actions that protect the American people. That was Secretary of State Michael Pompeo talking earlier today, over in Copenhagen, Denmark. This was in response actually at the United States closed the Chinese consulate down in Houston, We turn now to Bill fairies. He heads up our national security coverage for Bloomberg. So, Bill this was quite a dramatic announcement that most was well, two up to this morning. What happened here? Well, you know, there's been a drumbeat of tensions back and forth between us and China. The U. S. Says that this is in response to ongoing intellectual property theft by China. That Secretary Pompeo said, has cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs. What we don't know if if there was, for instance of specific intelligence Operation going on that the US was trying to shut down. We do know that in the last year there have been two Chinese citizens in Houston, who have been indicted and convicted for trying Tio trying to steal trade secrets from the energy industry. So we don't know that specifically is related. But it is something that's obviously been on the U. S radar for a little while now. So in the terms of diplomacy, this is a pretty serious step for one country to kick out consulate out altogether, having a few years ago as I recall with Russia as well, what's likely to be the Chinese response. Well, Typically, it's a straight kind of protesting where the Chinese would look a U. S consulates in China at and close one of them with the same 72 hours notice. It'll be very interesting if they do something that's a little bit less than that, because that would signal on attempted de escalation. But the U. S has, I think five consulates in China And I would expect everyone who's based their eyes a bit on it now about whether they'll have to be going home this week. So, Bill, What's the endgame here is far as you can figure. I mean, do we think that the Chinese are going to change their conduct on intellectual property because we closed a consulate in Houston? The short answer is no. I don't think this will probably, you know, served. I think it's much more of a symbolic kind of moved by the U. S. And It keeps up these tensions that have been growing, you know, over over things like the origin of the Corona virus over issues like Wow, way. I think it's another strike in that category. Just yesterday, the US accused Chinese hackers of ah of more than a decade of attempts to try to steal hundreds of millions of dollars and trade secrets. From the U. S. I don't think a TTE this point. We see what the exit ramp is here for either side, other than some sort of a de escalation, So the ball is really in China's kind of court.

Last night when they started seeing and smelling smoke around the the Chinese consulate, they called the Fire Department Fire department banged on the door. But he came to the door and said, Everything's fine. We don't need you go away. Well, there's no way the police Department of the Fire Department or anyone really can force their way in because that consulate is a patch of Chinese property. And so if everything's okay, they can't necessarily do much about it. There was a fire there about three years ago by the wind, and the fire department did go in. They were asked to come in, and they put the fire out this time. They were told to go away. They set up shop around there and watched as people were bringing armloads of documents out of the Chinese consulate.

They told the people staying there, and in fact, some people actually live in that consulate that they have to be out by Friday. Apparently they will comply, but not without some complaint. Kristina, So the two Chinese nationals that were arrested. We don't know if this is connected to the consulate closure yet, but there are suspicions that there maybe it might be. Sure, but I mean, the U. S has had them a long list of complaints with Chinese for a long time, You know, the first day of the trade issues that came up with in the last couple of years. Tariffs backed by tariffs on both sides. We also have the dispute over the South China Sea Chinese have claimed offshore property there. They say that they have every right to build the artificial islands and direct military bases on them. That's what they've been doing for several years. United States and Europe aren't too crazy about that. And then, of course, the intellectual property of the issues of war away while we're the electronics company that builds components and is accused of spying on behalf of China on people who use their products, so yeah, it may be these two. Ah, the two Chinese officials or it may in fact, be this other list of stuff or it could be a culmination of all of that. Jim Ryan. Thank you so much. We appreciate it.

"The Chinese Consulate in Houston, but the fire department's being told to stay away. What we understand is some classified documents except apparently being burned in the courtyard of The consulate here. Keep in mind because this is a consulate. That's Chinese sovereignty. They can say who and who cannot go into the building. They are not allowing the fire department in the building and they're not allowing the police department in the building. From what we understand The consulate is being evicted from this location. They have to be out of here by 4 p.m. Friday, and apparently they were burning some classified documents, apparently because he didn't want anybody to get their hands on these documents.
