A German journalist said that China is demonstrating “imperial claims to hegemony” in Asia and in this regard suggested a number of ways for the EU to influence it. He wrote about it in Der Tagesspiegel’s newspaper.
The author of the article stressed that China is also a threat to the U.S. and the European Union, which is already in a new cold war.
In his opinion, Europe should remember its history and create an association of the type that was formed in the XX century to “contain” the Soviet Union and was the guarantor of “peace and freedom” in Western Europe.
The journalist added that in the question of interaction with China it is reasonable to talk about political and military pressure on China. In addition, he emphasized that U.S. President Joe Biden could become an ally for Europe.
Earlier, Biden said that the stimulus package would help the U.S. to compete with China.
