The leader of La France Insoumise (LFI) criticized for having described Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the island as a “provocation”, persists and signs on Saturday August 6. In a new post published on his blog on Saturday, he says he is “spooked” (stunned) by the “very strange reactions” and the “cries of outrage” that his statements have caused. “What kind of fear reigns over the debate?” he wonders. “Where is the active president of Franco-Chinese friendships Mr. Raffarin (ex-French Prime Minister)? And the signatories of the cooperation agreement of the UMP (Les Républicains) with the Chinese Communist Party? And Fabien Roussel (national secretary of the PCF), after his so recent friendship trip to China? indignant Jean-Luc Mélenchon. The former presidential candidate, defender of a “non-alignment of Paris”, points to a risk of seeing Beijing “enter into closer convergence with Russia”. According to him, “a more homogeneous bloc would form between the USA and Europe ‘whatever the cost’ in terms of enslavement and the risk of war”. Within the left alliance Nupes, the national secretary of EELV Julien Bayou had denounced Friday “a rather dated vision” and “a real cynicism in terms of geopolitics”. The boss of the Socialist Party, Olivier Faure, judged for his part that if “the advisability of Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan [était] debatable, the will of the Taiwanese to live in democracy is not”.
