China’s leader Xi Jinping stated that there is a new pressure that is coming from the United States. This statement came after a week of tensed demeanors on behalf of both superpowers. Analysts are already sure that the green positive relations between U.S. and China have vanished into thin air.
The United States Might Have Ended the Green Positive Relations with China in just One Week
On Sunday, Chinese media stated that Xi Jinping was content with how things progressed since he ended up in the good graces of President Trump. After a ramping electoral campaign in which Donald Trump depicted China as the root of all evil in free trade, the U.S. President turned over a new leaf in his Chinese relations in February. This was when the two leaders met to discuss important matters that remained under complete secrecy.
However, in the past week, these fickle ties might have been broken once more. The United States issued heavy sanctions against China’s Dandong bank. The pretext seems to be a connection to North Korea, the rogue state. On top of that, US leaders claimed that China is a human trafficker and ordered a fleet to sail extremely close to a Chinese chain of disputed islands. Another insult was U.S. selling $1.4 billion worth of arms to Taiwan. Beijing treats this country as a renegade.
The Reason for Boiling Dispute Is North Korea
Analysts translated these series of actions that happened in a span of just one week as a punitive direction. The United States doesn’t like Beijing’s clemency towards North Korea which was declared a threat to the global balance. Another proof for this interpretation is one of Trump’s tweets on June 21. The post stated that even though China did try to contain North Korea, the results were without any effect.
The Korean Peninsula alluded several times to an offensive intention related to nuclear and ballistic arsenals. World leaders desire to dissolve this nuclear threat. Therefore, they are collaborating to instill pressure to the country and make it change its mind.
