The U.S. Secretary of State Blinken’s speech on policy towards the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), originally scheduled on May 5 was postponed due to his diagnosis of COVID-19, and analysts agree that the speech will still highlight the U.S. view of the CCP as the most important geopolitical challenge.

According to expert analysis, Blinken’s speech will basically emphasize the Biden administration’s existing policy towards the CCP to maintain competition oriented bilateral relations with each other, while preventing competition from getting out of control and avoiding face to face conflict.

Next up for the Biden administration has a series of intensive interactions with countries in the Indo-Pacific region: a special summit between U.S. and ASEAN leaders in Washington, D.C., on May 12-13, Biden’s trip to South Korea and Japan from May 20-24, and the May 24 “Quadrilateral Security Dialogue” between U.S., Japanese, Indian and Australian leaders.

Blinken’s speech will be the Biden administration’s first China-specific policy address in more than a year since he took office. Experts say that the U.S.-China relationship as expressed in Blinken’s CCP policy speech will include competition, confrontation and cooperation. The Biden administration values competition under multilateralism, with the reinvigorated Quadripartite Security Dialogue being the most important.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has distracted the U.S., but the Biden administration now intends to reaffirm the U.S. Indo-Pacific strategy through a series of intensive interactions with countries in the Indo-Pacific region, as well as to confront the CCP.

Before Russia started the war on Ukraine, President Xi Jinping and Russian Vladimir Putin declared that “unlimited friendship and no restricted zone for cooperation”. So far, the CCP has refused to condemn Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.

The United States will treat the CCP and Russia’s ally as the same threat. In dealing with a major war in Europe, the United States will not lose its focus on the Indo-Pacific region.
