US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is currently on a visit to China. Blinken’s visit to China is more than just a formality.
This is the first time since 2018 that a high-level US official has visited China. That is, no high-level American official had visited China for almost 5 years.
In such a situation, this visit of Blinken is very important. During this visit, Blinken also met with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Foreign Minister Qin Gang and diplomat Wang Yi. There is more than one aspect to the importance of this tour, which is important to know.
Relations between America and China have not been good for the last one year. America and China are among the two most powerful countries in the world. In such a situation, both want to stay ahead of each other. Despite China’s sanctions on Russia on the issue of the Russia-Ukraine war, America did not find it right not to oppose Russia and to support them from time to time. Because of this, there was a rift in the relations between the two countries.
At the same time, this year the rift in the relations between the two countries increased even more. Be it the meeting of China’s spy balloon in America, or the news of China’s secret police stations operating in some American cities, all these led to a rift in the relations between the two countries. And the Taiwan issue has completed the task. After the Russia-Ukraine war, speculation intensified that China could also attack Taiwan. In this matter, America supported Taiwan from the beginning, which did not go down well with China. Due to this, the relations between the two countries deteriorated considerably.
In such a situation, this visit of Blinken to China is very important for improving relations between the two countries. Chinese President Jinping himself has said that Blinken’s visit resulted in positive talks between the US and China on many issues. Efforts were made on this visit of Blinken to improve relations between the two countries. The result of his visit to Blinken is that Chinese Foreign Minister Gang is also reported to visit America soon. In such a situation, the foreign ministers of both countries visiting each other’s country is a good thing for the relations between the two countries.
In such a situation, it would not be wrong to say that before this visit Blinken, the boat of relations between America and China, which seemed to be sinking in the middle of the sea, has got stability in that boat due to Blinken’s visit.
