Late French Politician’s Ties to the Chinese Regime

2020-06-03 17:28
Former French minister Patrick Devedjian passed away on March 29 after being infected by the CCP virus, also known as the novel coronavirus. He became one of the first high-profile French politicians to succumb to the virus. Other French politicians have also been infected by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus. What is the reason behind this phenomenon? Amid the pandemic, a recurring pattern shows that countries and regions that have close ties with the Chinese regime are the most affected by the CCP virus. What is the relationship between France and the Chinese Communist Party? As the CCP virus spreads around the globe, France has become one of the epicenters in Europe. In early March, other French politicians were infected with the virus, including four members of the National Assembly, and the Culture Minister. The Bourbon Palace, which is located beside the French National Assembly, was closed during the lockdown. Devedjian was born in Armenia, which was once taken over by the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. He was the former president of the French Parisian Hauts-de-Seine administrative district. He once served as the Minister of Labor and the Minister of Industry under former President Jacques Chirac. He was also the Minister of the Implementation of the Recovery Plan under former President Nicolas Sarkozy, and served as the Secretary-General of the Union for a Popular Movement (UMP, renamed as The Republicans in 2015). The Chinese regime only cares about its own interests, while France once made a historic contribution to the democratic freedom of the world. The pandemic has caused many countries to re-evaluate their relationship with the CCP. Will France continue to cooperate with the CCP in exchange for political and lucrative benefits, or will it sever its ties with the Communist regime that has no regard for human rights?
