NEW YORK, 26 MAY – “China is the only country with the intention of redesigning the international order and, increasingly, with the economic, diplomatic, military and technological power to do so. Instead of using its power to enforce the laws, agreements, principles and institutions that have enabled its success, China undermines them. Under President Xi, the Chinese Communist Party has become more repressive at home and more aggressive abroad ”, states US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, according to excerpts from his speech that he will shortly be released by his department. “Even if President Putin’s war continues, we remain focused on the more serious long-term challenge to the international order, which is China’s.” This was stated by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, according to extracts from the speech that he will soon be released by his department. “The scale of the challenge posed by China will be a test for American democracy,” Blinken notes, stating that the United States will compete “with China to defend our interests and build our vision for the future.” (HANDLE).
