According to Newsmax, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken delivered a speech on China policy on May 26, denouncing the CCP’s pursuit of “asymmetric decoupling” in rare tough words and directly targeting Xi Jinping. Blinken also proposed three pillars of the US strategy towards China in his speech. U.S. officials say the three-pillar approach proposed by the United States is to determine the economic and military balance of the 21st century.
While the United States sees Russia as the most serious and immediate threat to international stability, the officials say the administration sees China as a greater danger and is mobilizing resources, friends and allies to counter Beijing’s increased assertiveness around the world manner.
Officials also mentioned that Blinken’s speech came just after Biden’s trips to South Korea and Japan, where discussions of the Chinese Communist Party featured prominently.
Blinken believes that the global response to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine can serve as a template for the United States to respond to the Chinese Communist Party’s shaping of a new and unpredictable world order, and to use this template to replace the rules and institutions that have guided relations between countries since the end of World War II. .
Blinken has informed the world that by preventing Putin from achieving his goals, the United States is significantly stepping up its engagement with nations to defend and preserve disorder against challenges from others, one official said. And “the CCP is a regime that intentionally and has the economic, technological, military capabilities and diplomatic means to promote the opposite of the international order.”
The U.S. government intends to use its successes in the Ukraine-Russia war to align U.S. allies and partners against China, officials said. Other elements of the policy include investment in U.S. domestic infrastructure and technology, as well as strengthening diplomatic ties with potentially vulnerable states.
In addition, the Biden administration has largely retained the hard-line policy toward China adopted by President Trump in response to CCP actions in western Xinjiang, Hong Kong, Tibet and the South China Sea. The officials said that while the government sees areas of cooperation with the Chinese government, such as addressing climate change, the U.S. government will not trade this cooperation for compromises on human rights and rule of law principles.
