“China Should Expect ‘Extreme Competition’ From US” – Biden

0

President Joe Biden says China is in for “extreme competition” from the United States under his administration yet that the new relationship he needs to produce need not be one of contention.

In a interview broadcast Sunday, Biden recognized that he presently can’t seem to talk with Chinese leader Xi Jinping since his introduction on Jan. 20. He noted that the two leaders had met commonly when the two men served their nations as VP.

“I know him pretty well,” Biden said in an excerpt of the interview aired Sunday by CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

When they do speak, they will have “a whole lot to talk about,” Biden said.

Biden gives off an impression of being focusing his underlying telephone diplomacy on U.S. allies. He so far has spoken with the heads of Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, South Korea, Australia, and the NATO secretary-general.

He likewise worked in a conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In the interview, Biden described Xi as “very bright” and “very tough” but without “a democratic, small D, bone in his body.”

Shortly after Biden succeeded President Donald Trump in the White House, Beijing welcomed the Biden administration’s decision to remain in the World Health Organization and return to the Paris climate agreement.

The new administration, however, is unlikely to significantly alter U.S. policies on trade, Taiwan, human rights, and the South China Sea that have angered Beijing.

Biden, in the interview taped Friday, said he has said to Xi “ all along, that we need not have a conflict.” But, Biden added, there will be “extreme competition. And I’m not going to do it the way that he knows. And that’s because he’s sending signals as well.”

Biden said he will not pursue U.S.-China relations in the way that Trump did but will focus on “international rules of the road.”
