US Secretary of State pointed to the need to maintain the global legal system
The United States does not seek to contain China but does want the state to comply with international rules and obligations. This was announced on Monday by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken during a video briefing organized by the press center for foreign journalists in New York.
“The point is not to restrain China or prevent it from developing, but to maintain the global legal system When someone challenges this system, it does not matter if this is China or any other country we all have a reason to oppose it. So it’s all about protecting, strengthening, and preserving the global rule of law, “Blinken said, citing the area of human rights as an example.
In addition, the head of the State Department noted that the United States and its allies are trying to pursue a consolidated policy to prevent China from dividing the United States and its partners. “We also see the need to go through these challenges. And this means working with our allies to close the intermediate scenarios where China is trying to separate us,” the head of the State Department said, stressing the importance of his recent working trips to several countries in Asia and Europe.
Earlier, Canada, the United States, Great Britain, and the EU imposed sanctions in connection with the situation in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region (XUAR) of the PRC against a number of Chinese officials. China reacted to them in a mirror-like manner.
