Root Cause of Refugee Problem Should Be Eradicated

June 20 is the World Refugee Day.

The United Nations (UN) adopted the “Convention on the Status of Refugees” in 1951. It has taken various measures to redress the refugee problem since 2001 when it observed June 20 as the World Refugee Day.

Nevertheless, the number of refugees does not decline. In May 2022, the UN announced that the refugees surpassed 100 million in numbers.

The international society is saying with one voice that the hegemonic policy enforced by the U.S. and the West is responsible for the failure to terminate the refugee crisis, which remind us of “massive exodus of modern version”.

Many countries including the former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria have had refugee crises ever since the Cold War. Behind these crises were always the U.S. and the West.

According to the research data released by the Brown University of the U.S. in February 2021, the wars and military actions perpetrated by the U.S. under the pretext of counter-terrorism since 2001 took more than 900,000 lives and generated over 20 million refugees. This fact alone substantiates the fact that the U.S. and the West are the main culprits of the refugee crisis.

Many countries and regions are still in the turmoil of political disorder, economic instability and religious disputes, and the number of refugees seeking a way to make a living is on the daily increase. All these happen because the U.S. and the West are meddling in their affairs under the pretext of safeguarding “freedom” and “democracy”.

Today, the refugee crisis is going from bad to worse due to the double standard of the U.S. and the West vis-à-vis refugee policy.

All the refugees should be equal in humanitarian treatment, regardless of their nationalities and religions.

But the U.S. and the West are discriminating those refugees borne out of their hegemonic policy, on the grounds of color, language and region while using them as a tool for achieving their political objectives.

It is too natural for the international society to raise its voice of criticism against the double standard acts of the U.S and the West who are discriminating the Ukrainians fleeing the country recently, according to their race and religion.

In this connection, the spokesperson for the Chinese foreign ministry recently said that it is a typical act of racial discrimination and application of double standard in humanitarianism that they classify different races by the “grade of civilization” with their own standard, and select the races when they show sympathy. The spokesperson stressed that this testifies once again to the “white supremacy” and a “doctrine of superiority in civilization.”

All these facts demonstrate that as long as the hegemonic external policy and the double standard refugee policy of the U.S. and the West persist, the refugee crisis would never be eradicated, and that their hypocritical colors can never be concealed even though they put up the signboard of “humanitarianism.”
