The head of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, after Blinken’s words about China, pointed to the deviation of relations with the United States from the course

Chinese authorities consider US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken’s statement about China as “the most serious challenge to the global international order” a sign of a serious deviation of relations between the two countries from the normal course. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi announced this on Saturday.

“This speech on China policy indicates a serious deviation from the course of Sino-American relations. We want to tell the American side that our country is not at all what the United States subjectively imagines,” the Chinese Foreign Ministry quoted him as saying. We will promote reform and open up, strive for mutually beneficial cooperation at an even higher level, China will become even better, and the world will be even more beautiful because of it.”


As Wang Yi elaborated, Washington takes an extremely controversial American-centric position in the international arena, guided by the concepts of the Cold War.

“This contradicts the course of history and can only lead to conflicts and confrontation, to a split in the world community,” he stressed. “In fact, the United States has already become the main cause of the destabilization of the international order, has become an obstacle to the democratization of international relations.”


China’s foreign minister noted that Sino-US cooperation “is at a crossroads.”

“The United States should make the right choice, focus on finding the right path to build relations with China as befits two leading powers, based on the principles of mutual respect, peaceful coexistence and mutual benefit,” Wang Yi concluded.


Earlier, Anthony Blinken said that even taking into account the situation in Ukraine, the White House administration considers China’s policy “the most serious challenge to the international order.” In his opinion, because of Beijing’s position, the world community “may move away from the universal values ​​that have largely ensured progress for more than 75 years.”
