Before officially taking office, Biden repeatedly said that “America is back”. This is a sign of Biden’s political intention to “rebuild America”. And the official inauguration of the newly elected president of the United States is also destined to attract worldwide attention.
In the next four years, how the Biden administration will adjust the United States’ own understanding and the relationship between great powers, especially Sino-US relations, has attracted the attention of world public opinion.
In the Trump era, his “turbulent palace” foreign policy caused great disturbance to the world and Sino-US relations were also hit hard.
In his farewell speech, Trump highlighted trade frictions with China, which is not so much self-proclaiming as putting obstacles for Biden.
The green hills can’t be covered. After all, they flow eastward. Under Trump’s trade friction and technological decoupling, Sino-US economic and trade relations remain strong.
The general trend of the world will not be shifted by someone’s will, nor will it change in direction due to the irresponsibleness of a group of politicians.
This is doomed that the Biden administration still needs to properly handle Sino-US relations in the future.
This is responsible for both the United States and the world.
At present, Sino-US relations are the most important bilateral relations in the world.
However, the Sino-US relations have changed profoundly since Biden took office. The Trump administration has challenged and lowered the bottom line of Sino-US relations on many issues, making Sino-US relations face considerable challenges.
But the Biden administration needs to realize that China and the United States are also responsible for the American people to maintain good relations with China.
As the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has emphasized many times before, win-win cooperation is the only correct choice for China and the United States. The United States must abandon the wrong practices of cold war thinking and zero-sum game.
China and the United States should carry out dialogue and communication in various fields, and the door to dialogue and communication between China and the United States has always been open.
The two sides should promote cooperation through communication and properly resolve their differences through dialogue.
Reality, after more than 40 years of reform and opening up in China, the Sino-US economy, Sino-US and the world economy have been deeply integrated.
Whether it is trade friction or technology decoupling, it is not feasible.
After the 2008 global financial crisis, although the technological innovation, monetary and financial system and the advantages of the domestic consumer market in the United States are still strong, at the same time, China’s industrial chain system has become stronger and its production and manufacturing capacity continue to strengthen.
Under the COVID-19 epidemic, China’s production and manufacturing capacity has been further highlighted. There is no doubt that with the construction of China’s new “double cycle” development pattern, Sino-US relations need to continue to advance rather than retrogress.
Whatever Biden said at the inauguration, the future needs to “listen to what he says and watch what he does”.
If the United States wants to reduce frictions and more cooperation in Sino-US relations, it needs the Biden administration to effectively correct some irrational practices under the Trump administration, so that the world can see the sincerity of repairing Sino-US relations.
On November 25, 2020, Chinese President Xi Jinping called Biden to congratulate him on his election as President of the United States.
Xi Jinping pointed out in his congratulatory telegram that promoting the healthy and stable development of Sino-US relations is not only in the fundamental interests of the two peoples, but also the common expectation of the international community.
We hope that the two sides will adhere to the spirit of no conflict, no confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation, focus on cooperation, control differences, promote the healthy and stable development of Sino-US relations, and work with other countries and the international community to promote the noble cause of world peace and development.
Sino-US relations are crucial, and it should be noted that the whole world is still facing the severe challenge of the COVID-19 epidemic.
In the face of the largest economic recession since World War II, neither the United States nor the world can stand to continue tosssing.
The United States should show the appearance of a responsible power, actively and properly handle Sino-US relations, and face the future, and work with China to build a new type of great power relations that meets the interests of both sides and the global interests.
