On May 26, U.S. Secretary of State John Blinken delivered a speech on China policy, condemning the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in rare strong terms for seeking “asymmetric decoupling” and taking direct aim at Xi Jinping.
Blinken said the U.S. is working to forge new alliances to counter future Chinese Communist challenges in the Indo-Pacific region. For example, by reaffirming the important U.S. security alliance with Japan and South Korea and deepening U.S. economic and technical cooperation with Japan and South Korea, the United States has reinvigorated its relationship with ASEAN countries.
While the United States views Russia as posing the most urgent and immediate threat to international stability, Blinken emphasized that the U.S. government sees the Chinese Communist Party as posing a more serious long-term challenge.
According to Blinken, the United States does not intend to transform the CCP’s political system, focusing on reshaping the strategic environment around the CCP to constrain and affect its behaviour.
Blinken also said the U.S. is strengthening peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific region with a new security partnership (AUKUS) between Australia, the U.K., and the U.S. and is also strengthening cooperation with the European Union.
The United States shares with the nations and peoples of the region a vision of a free and open Indo-Pacific region where countries are free to make their own sovereign decisions.
