Chinese President Xi Jinping speaks with U.S. State Secretary John Kerry (R) during a lunch banquet in the Great Hall of the People in BeijingBy Clare Baldwin HONG KONG (Reuters) – A United States Congressman told reporters that China’s engagement with U.S. lawmakers has diminished under President Xi Jinping in a marked change from the policy of his predecessors. He also said that Chinese and Hong Kong officials were looking for a scapegoat when they blamed last years’ pro-democracy protests on “foreign forces”. “I think it has diminished,” Congressman Matt Salmon said of China’s engagement with U.S. lawmakers under President Xi. In fact I think if anything, this president is moving in the other direction, (away) from constructive engagement from the past two presidents.” Salmon is chairman of the subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific under the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.
