【禁聞】「後會有期」美駐華大使離職

【新唐人2011年5月2日訊】美國駐華大使洪博培(Jon Huntsman)日前離開北京、返回美國華盛頓,正式卸任美國駐華大使一職。洪博培離任後,是否會代表共和黨競選美國下一屆總統,備受各界關注。大陸網民則紛紛表示,不會忘記這位特立獨行、勇於批評中國人權的大使,並且希望「後會有期」。

洪博培4月28號在美國駐華大使館的官方微博上,發佈了一張與工作人員的合影照,併發表了離任感言。

洪博培在另一條微博上,介紹了一張他站在自己官方肖像旁邊的照片。他寫道:“現在這張肖像和其他所有前任美國駐華大使的肖像掛在一起。後會有期!”

在此之前,總部設在華盛頓的華南美國商會授予洪博培「2011年度人物」獎,讚揚他傑出的外交成就,認為他是「美國價值」化身的典範。

洪博培在4月6號的一次講話中,嚴厲批評中共糟糕的人權記錄,並對艾未未、陳光誠等人高度讚揚。這被認為是今年(2011年)美國官員對中國人權問題發表的最尖銳批評。

洪博培說:「美國永遠不會停止支持人權,因為我們相信不管在哪裏,人的尊嚴和公正是最基本的抗爭。」

美國特使波斯納在最近的「美中人權對話」結束後表示,中國人權在走下坡路。

前中共總書記趙紫陽秘書鮑彤接受《德國之聲》採訪時說:

鮑彤(前中共總書記趙紫陽秘書):「我想美國代表對中國人權狀況的評價是符合實際情況的,絕對是倒退。中國最近一年來的情況,從劉曉波到譚作人,到艾未未,都可以看出來,中國公民現在所處的情況,侵犯中國公民人權的,不是別人,是中國的黨和政府。」

對於中共外交部發言人指責美國「利用人權對話,來干涉中國內政」,鮑彤認為,如果說人權是內政,那麼當局就應該按照法律程序來進行。如果內政就是打人、抓人,這個內政是很可怕的,這個國家也是危險的,應該受到譴責。

鮑彤:「不能夠用這是中國(共)政府的內政來搪塞,如果說艾未未失蹤是中國(共)政府的內政,那就說明:中國(共)政府應該在這個問題上負有責任。」

今年2月,洪博培曾經出現在北京王府井大街的「茉莉花集會」地點,因此被中共視為敏感人物。隨後,北京取消了由洪博培主辦的多次美中雙邊交流計劃,中共還命令一些省級官員取消同洪博培的會面。

英國《金融時報》報導,美國官員透露,在一再受到中共政府的外交冷落後,美國政府可能會加大中國統治精英階層,及其家人獲得美國簽證的難度。

洪博培除了出使中國,也曾擔任美國駐新加坡大使、猶他州州長、商務部副助理部長、聯邦副貿易代表等職務,經歷豐富。他與妻子還收養了一位中國女孩。

目前,還沒有人確切知道洪博培提前離任後的具體動向﹔但外界普遍預計,他將爭取共和黨提名參加下一屆總統選舉。

《華爾街日報》報導,在洪博培抵達華盛頓時,一個總統競選團隊早已在等待著他。

而洪博培在微博中表示:「後會有期」,江蘇網友說:最好帶上「自由女神」回來。

U.S. Ambassador: “See You Soon”

US Ambassador to China, Jon Huntsman

ended his term and returned to the USA. Media

spotlighted his potential Republican campaign.

Chinese netizens praised his deeds in China

and said they expect to “see him soon”.

Jon Huntsman uploaded on April 28 a farewell photo

on the embassy site with final words of departure.

On another microblog, he wrote about a picture

of him standing beside his official portrait

that this one was already placed

next to other previous ambassadors.

Jon Huntsman was awarded as “2011 Annual Figure”

for his excellent diplomatic achievements

and was referred to as “US value”

by the Chamber of Commerce in South Washington.

He pointedly criticized Chinese authorities

(Chinese Communist Party, CCP) during his speech

on April 6 for their terrible human rights record,

while praised figures such as Ai Weiwei and

Chen Guangcheng. This is the most acute critique

of human rights from American officials in 2011.

Huntsman: “The US will never stop the support

for human rights, knowing that human rights and

justice are the bottom line shared by all mankind.”

The US envoy Bosiwosi said in the latest US-China

Dialogue that China's human rights are regressing.

Bao Tong, secretary of former CCP chief secretary,

said in an interview with Deutsche Welle:

“The US ambassador was proven right,

from Liu Xiaobo to Tan Zuoren and Ai Weiwei,

it's an apparent fact that it is the CCP that violates

China's human rights throughout.”

Responding to the CCP's rebuke of US interfering

in China's internal affairs during the rights dialogue,

Bao said that CCP failed to fulfill its internal duties

by its persecution and illegal detentions,

for which CCP was to blame.

The misuse of internal affairs is an excuse,

given Ai Weiwei's case,

for which CCP is responsible.

Huntsman was regarded as a sensitive figure by CCP

due to his presence in a February Jasmine rally,

and his US-China exchange programs were canceled.

According to UKs Financial Times, US government

might tighten policies on CCP officials and families

to obtain visas for the USA.

In the past Jon Huntsman had also served

as US ambassador to Singapore, Utah Governor,

Assistant Commerce Secretary and

Deputy Trade Representative.

He and his wife had adopted a Chinese girl as well.

Huntsman's next move after returning to the US

is unknown, but it is expected that he might be

nominated as a candidate for US president

from the Republican Party.

The Wall Street Journal reported that a group

of the present campaign team

was waiting for him in Washington.

Huntsman wrote in his blog “See you soon”,

to which Jiangxi netizens responded,

“Bring the Statue of Liberty”.
