DHARAMSHALA, Feb. 15: A group of US Senators have reintroduced a bill that seeks to counter China’s political influence in the United States and elsewhere in the world, including US allies and American citizens that are under threat from Beijing.

U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) as original co-sponsors of the bill are joined by Senators Cory Gardner (R-CO), Ed Markey (D-MA), John Cornyn (R-TX) and Tom Cotton (R-AR).

The bill originally introduced in June 2018 seeks for the Secretary of State and the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) to create an interagency task force to bring forth an unclassified report on China’s disinformation, press manipulation, economic coercion and influence operations in the United States and around the world.

The bill also requires a strategy to counter China’s growing influence in the United States and to protect U.S. citizens, particularly the Chinese, Uyghur and Tibetan diaspora communities, from Chinese government threats, the press release stated.

Sen. Rubio who also co-sponsored the ‘Reciprocal Access to Tibet Act.’ which is now passed into law said, “To effectively combat the Chinese Government and Communist Party’s political influence operations here in the United States and globally, we must better understand the full scope and breadth of their efforts.”

Fellow co-sponsor Se, Cortez Masto said, “Our democratic processes are increasingly under attack from authoritarian governments. We must fully understand those threats to effectively combat them. This bipartisan bill will raise awareness about the threat Chinese government interference poses to democratic societies around the world, while also preparing our government to develop policy solutions that protect our political processes and our national security.”
