China strongly disagrees with the use of the term “competition” in defining Sino-American relations. This was stated by the head of the office of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, a member of the Politburo, Yang Jiechi, reports today, June 14, TASS.

According to the agency, he made such a statement at a meeting in Luxembourg with the Assistant to the President of the United States for National Security. Jake Sullivan.

“PRC strongly opposes the use of competition to define Sino-US relations. The United States must adjust its strategic perception of China, make the right choice, work together with the Chinese side, and actually implement the consensus reached by the two heads of state,” he said.

Yang Jiechi recalled, US President Joe Biden repeatedly stated to the President of the People’s Republic of China Xi Jinpingthat the United States does not seek to unleash a “new cold war”, change the Chinese system, does not intend to confront the PRC by strengthening blocs, does not support “Taiwan independence”, and does not want to enter into conflict.

“China appreciates this. For some time, however, the US has been pushing for increased containment and pressure on China across the board. Such actions will not only not solve the problems faced by the United States itself, but will also put China-US relations in a very difficult situation, causing great damage to bilateral exchanges and cooperation on all fronts. This situation does not correspond to the interests of China and the United States, nor to the interests of the rest of the world, ”concluded a member of the PRC Politburo.
