Chinese analysts from the Chongyaan Institute for Financial Studies at Renmin University advised China to be prepared for a scenario of military conflict with the United States
The think tank urged Beijing to get rid of the illusion of avoiding competition with Washington and already look for ways to reduce tensions between the countries. According to him, the conflict in Ukraine has increased US fears about China and raised the risk of an “all-out” confrontation between the two powers.
“In order to respond to US President Joe Biden’s massive competitive offensive, China must put aside its illusions and make every effort to defend against the possibility of a final display of a high-intensity military confrontation,” the report said.
Earlier, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that China is currently the most serious long-term challenge to the international order. At the same time, the Secretary of State indicated that Washington is ready to expand direct contacts with Beijing, and hopes that this will happen. Moreover, the US does not see the possibility of starting a cold war with an Asian country and will avoid any conflicts.
