At the U.S.-China talks, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan had a rare on-camera sparring session with Chinese Communist Party (CCP) State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Yang Jiechi, director of the CCP Central Committee’s Foreign Affairs Working Committee Office, and did not ask the media to leave the meeting.
Wu Jialong said the situation now is that the U.S. and China are raising confrontation. The consequences of the failure of negotiations are even more serious, as it is tantamount to proving that a peaceful solution has broken down, so in desperation for peace, they have to start a conflict or war.
He said the launch of diplomatic efforts, but in the middle of the bargaining to humiliate the other side, anger the other side, and then let the negotiations break down, often to pave the way for the conflict to follow, “to see the modus operandi of such.” Only when the plan has broken down can another plan that was originally prepared be launched.
“A full-scale confrontation between the U.S. and China is exactly the outcome the Americans want.” Wu Jialong said the two sides are here to quarrel, not to try to negotiate any agreement, and that the quarrel will help both sides in their domestic politics. Xi Jinping needs nationalism and anti-American sentiment in order to facilitate his ability to be re-elected next year; the U.S. Biden cannot let Americans feel he is controlled by Xi Jinping and has to assume a tough stance against the Chinese Communist Party.
“Secretary of State Blinken stepped on the red line of the Chinese Communist Party right from the beginning.” He said the opening statement about talking about Xinjiang, Hong Kong, issues with Taiwan, etc., came specifically to irritate the Chinese Communist Party. The U.S. is also trying to show its allies that the U.S. organization of the anti-China alliance is coming true.
“The U.S. does not need to go to war with the Chinese Communist Party because relying on economic warfare and technology warfare is enough to weaken China’s national power so that the Chinese Communist Party will no longer be a rival of the United States.” Wu Jialong said the United States is trying to do two things.
In his analysis, the first is through the “Great Decoupling”, so that China’s economy closed to the West, no longer able to absorb high-tech nutrients from the Western camp; the second thing is the “joint siege”, through the “four-party security dialogue The second thing is “joint containment”, through the “Quadrilateral Security Dialogue” to actively create an “Asian version of NATO”, with a collective defense mechanism to restrain the CCP’s foreign expansion, “it is estimated that in both of these things, Taiwan will have an important role to play.”
