Will counter China's aggressive, coercive action: Joe Biden administration

Top Chinese diplomat urges closer ties with US under Biden Biden administration indicates in no hurry to engage China

Wang Wenbin from China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a Thursday press briefing that Beijing has been closely monitoring the United States warship's activities.

Under the Trump administration's approach of stepped-up naval and aerial operations aimed at pushing back against what the Pentagon regards as increasing Chinese military hegemony in the region, a total of 13 Navy warship passages were conducted previous year.

It found 62% supported Biden's campaign pledge to hold China "accountable" to its climate commitments, such as becoming carbon-neutral by 2060. As a Politburo member, Yang outranks Foreign Minister Wang Yi. "By doing that, we're ceding authority, we're allowing China to continue to grow as a threat rather than confronting it".

Military experts in Taiwan say the Biden administration is trying to assure Taiwan and countries in the region that it will basically continue the Taiwan policy pursued by the Trump administration.

Senior Chinese foreign policy official Yang Jiechi, one of the top aides to dictator Xi Jinping, on Monday instructed President Joe Biden to abandon the "misguided policies" of his predecessor, Donald Trump.

"I hope the new administration will remove the stumbling blocks to people-to-people exchanges, like harassing Chinese students, restricting Chinese media outlets, shutting down Confucius Institutes and suppressing Chinese companies". "These policy measures are not only wrong but also unpopular".

The Japan-based USS John S McCain made the routine transit in accordance with global law, Lt. Joe Keiley, a spokesperson for the U.S. Navy's 7th Fleet, said in a statement. "They constitute a red line that must not be crossed".

China condemned the US Navy maneuver as an "old trick to manipulate" the situation in the strait, and the USS John McCain's passage was "tracked and monitored" the entire time.

Kerry told a press conference last week that the United States would work with China on climate change as a "critical standalone issue", but stressed they would not trade other pressing concerns to make progress on climate. U.S. businesses have long complained of an uneven playing field in China, including massive Chinese state subsidies to domestic firms and forced technology transfers. His comments appeared to be a response to former USA secretary of state Mike Pompeo's efforts to distinguish between the party - described as the "central threat of our times" - and China's 1.4 billion people, "surveilled, oppressed, and scared to speak out", according to Pompeo.

The United States Navy sent a guided-missile destroyer through the Taiwan Strait on Thursday, the first time a US warship has gone through the waterway that separates China and Taiwan during the Biden administration.
