The battles between Beijing and Washington have so far emerged on almost everything – technology, trade, investment, supply chains, journalists, responses to demonstrations, COVID-19, etc. Who, if any, can cool down this situation? Perhaps, other influential "global players" can play a role? But who are those "global players"? Russia now will not be able to mediate since it is openly not on the same side with the U.S. Thus, I would like to look into relationships within the U.S.-EU-China triangle.
The United States' stigmatization of and hostile actions toward China have, among other things, raised concerns that China might be isolated from the global supply chain and its economy decoupled from that of the US, especially in high-tech and trade.The US high-tech ban on China targets 5G technology, cyber communications, semiconductor chips and artificial intelligence, in a bid to prevent China from challenging the US' dominant role in world trade. Such measures, though they will cause difficulties for Huawei and other Chinese companies in the short term, will result in just the opposite in the long run.
The clash between China and India on the border that reportedly led to the deaths of 20 Indian soldiers has reignited anti-China sentiment in India and a wave of "de-Sinicization" among Indian citizens. Some of India's hawkish politicians and media have also hyped up the conflict. Indian Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh said on Tuesday that "It is time now for the government of India to take some stringent measures. Each sign of weakness on our part makes the Chinese reaction more belligerent. I join the nation in paying tribute to our brave martyrs. The nation stands with you in your hour of grief," India media reported.
Bilateral business activities between China and Israel have been making progress despite the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting normal communications, and the two sides are looking forward to strengthening cooperation and business expansion in the post COVID-19 period. The close business ties between China and Israel, particularly in the high-tech sector, won't be dented by the US, business representatives and experts told the Global Times.
US riots have further intensified as violent clashes have erupted in over 70 cities with more than 40 imposing curfews. This has taken place when the US is plagued by the spreading COVID-19 epidemic, a severe economic downturn and the highest unemployment rate in decades. With such catastrophes, the Trump administration is facing a "perfect storm."US President Donald Trump and his core aides should be blamed for the escalation of the riots.
The US, this year's host country for the G7 summit, reportedly intends to form a "G11" by inviting South Korea, Australia, Russia and India to attend the meeting that has been postponed until at least September. But how well the US has maintained its global leadership capacity is in question, as is whether or not it will be able to use the summit as a platform to promote its anti-China agenda. That the US intends to invite new countries to attend is not shocking as G7 summits have adopted a G7-plus mechanism and the host country is permitted to issue invitations.
One is that China is not the original source of the virus. China is the first country to suffer the virus outbreak, it is first point. Second is no matter the criticism all China brain cannot solve the problems, cannot help us to against the coronavirus, cannot promote the relationship between China and your country, and cannot promote to ask for China’s help in the future. Just my initial point.
