VOC Testifies on the Hill

On April 10, 2024, VOC’s President Emeritus, Ambassador Andrew Bremberg, testified before the Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organization in a hearing entitled “The Chinese Communist Party’s Malign Influence at the United Nations — It’s Getting Worse.”

“Over the last decade, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has grown increasingly assertive in its engagements at the United Nations (UN). What was once described as a defensive “snapping turtle” approach has been replaced with General Secretary Xi Jinping’s “wolf warrior” foreign policy,” testified Amb. Bremberg. “As the U.S. Ambassador to the UN in Geneva, I saw firsthand how China expands its influence, and actively bends international norms to fit Beijing’s malign interest, at times specifically challenging the Western international order established by the U.S. and our allies following World War II.”
