On November 11, 2009, Ta Kung Pao, a Hong Kong and Shenzhen based Chinese newspaper that supports the CCP, published an article about the Chinese espionage hazards to U.S. security. According to the article, the United States uses it cold war mentality to belittle China’s international achievements and damage China’s national image by using China’s “Spy Gate” incidents.
The article further points out that the “spy gate” incidents won’t damage China’s national image. The biggest obstacle to China’s rise is that the international community has not accepted China’s voice. China must increase its international power to make its voice heard since its rise needs both hard power and soft power.
