The US compared the challenges of Russia and China. A senior representative of the American administration said that the countries present similar challenges for Washington, RIA Novosti quoted him as saying.
“In many ways, Russia presents a similar set of challenges, perhaps not the same size and scale as China. But we believe that it is best to fight them back, defending a common cause with our allies and partners, to ensure that they are held accountable for actions that are contrary to international “road rules”, ”the source said.
Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and US President Joe Biden's National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan will meet with Chinese counterparts in Anchorage, Alaska on March 18. Their interlocutors will be the head of the office of the CPC Central Committee Foreign Affairs Commission Yang Jiechi, as well as member of the PRC State Council, Foreign Minister Wang Yi.
Previously, NATO considered Russia, China, climate change and terrorism to be the main threats. However, the day before, the secretary general of the alliance, Jens Stoltenberg, said that he did not see a direct threat from Russia and China – and for this the member countries of the alliance should be thanked. “If there is an attack, it will provoke a reaction from all allies. This is one of the main reasons thanks to which we have been able to keep the peace for over 70 years, ”he stressed.
