Let’s Be “Partners and Not Rivals” — China President to US Secretary

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has arrived in Beijing today for a crucial meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, signaling renewed efforts to mend strained relations between the two global powers, Excel Magazine International can report.

In a cordial yet cautious exchange, President Xi reiterated the importance of viewing China and the U.S. as “partners, not rivals,” urging both nations to steer clear of “vicious competition” that could further escalate tensions.

The meeting comes amidst a backdrop of recent diplomatic challenges, with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi warning Blinken against crossing Beijing’s “red lines.”

Despite acknowledging progress in stabilizing the China-U.S. relationship, Minister Wang cautioned that it continues to face tests from various “negative factors.”

Blinken, on his second visit to China within a year, reiterated the necessity for active diplomacy to move bilateral ties forward.

Excel Magazine International observes that his remarks come in the wake of heightened tensions fueled by recent U.S. actions, including the passage of legislation targeting Chinese-owned social media giant TikTok.

The law, which mandates TikTok’s sale or potential ban in the U.S., has exacerbated friction between the two nations.

Adding to the strain, Washington’s approval of a military aid package to Taiwan has drawn sharp criticism from Beijing.

The move is seen as a direct challenge to China’s sovereignty claims over the self-governing island, further complicating efforts to stabilize relations.
