Yannick Jadot's measures on foreign policy, including China, NATO, during the environmentalists' primary in September 2021 as part of the presidential election in France in 2022.
France must respect international law, as well as its European commitments, and therefore cease sales of arms to dictatorships which are at war.
We must end the agreement with Mercosur which is destroying the Amazon.
China must be prevented from buying our ports, our electricity companies, vital infrastructure, otherwise Europe will no longer be able to speak out on human rights. We must stop their political project of hegemony over all of Asia, and fraturation of the European Union. China never talks to the European Union, it always talks only to European leaders. We must defend our digital sovereignty, as well as our energy sovereignty as China passes deals that allow it to attack governments. The beating heart of Europe must tell China and Russia that autocracy is enough, that they are not a commercial El Dorado, that they are sometimes an economic and political threat.
We must focus on the experiences, the transformations that make the different powers successful in the fight against climate change. It is this type of cooperation that we must have at the international level. We must be against the kind of investment agreement that the European Union made with China in the midst of the human rights crisis. We must assume that Europe is the world's largest market, the world's largest economy, that we are finally developing a European diplomacy and a defense policy, in order to weigh in by putting our values at the heart of our diplomacy.
We must continue military operations in Mali, strengthen development so that the militias have more difficulty in recruiting.
We need better management of forests in Europe with more firefighters.
NATO today is an empty shell, the organization that used to be an American security umbrella over Europe no longer functions. Turkey, an imminent member of NATO, sometimes acts against NATO's objectives.
There is a complacency of the Pakistani government towards the Taliban.
Because of our dependence on oil with Saudi Arabia and Qatar, we are too tolerant of these countries.
We must fight against Russian expansionism, against the totalitarian regime in Chechnya which attacks homosexuals, against attacks on press freedom. Russia must be put back within the framework of nuclear disarmament.
