China announced its readiness to oppose the United States together with Russia

Beijing intends to systematically contact Moscow regarding its future policy in relation to Washington. This was announced by the Ambassador of the People's Republic of China to the Russian Federation Zhang Hanhui on the eve of the online meeting of the American President Joe Biden with the main allies of the United States in Asia (Australia, India and Japan) and the trip of the heads of the State Department and the Pentagon to Seoul and Tokyo on March 15, 2021, writes the oldest English-language newspaper in Hong Kong South China Morning Post.

The Chinese diplomat said that Washington should correct its attitude towards Beijing to a more constructive one. He praised the military-technical cooperation between Russia and China, calling it an "important pillar" of interaction between the two powers and a guarantee of a strategic balance of forces on the planet.

As major powers, China and Russia share a wide range of common interests and have a special responsibility to maintain peace and stability throughout the world and to promote global development and prosperity. We are ready to maintain regular contact with the Russian side on our relations with the United States in order to more effectively protect the strategic interests of both our countries.

- the words of the ambassador are quoted on the website of the diplomatic mission.

Zhang Hanhui's reaction followed amid ongoing bitter rivalry between the United States and China. Washington is trying to form in Asia something like a NATO bloc directed against Beijing. The Americans are pursuing a "containment" policy against China, which the Chinese do not like very much.

At the same time, the US is putting pressure on Russia. This is forcing Moscow and Beijing to come closer together. The states even thought about the need to create a single military-political bloc to confront aggressive Washington, although recently both sides simultaneously expressed that there is no need for such an alliance so far.

The relations between the PRC and the Russian Federation are quite strong. Both countries have long been a united front in the international arena on a huge range of issues, including the settlement of various conflicts. Against the backdrop of the threats of the new US administration against Russia and China, Beijing unequivocally hinted to Moscow about its readiness to act together with it against Washington, the Hong Kong media summed up.

    The United States itself is pushing the Russian Federation and the PRC into each other's arms. What are they trying to achieve? The fact that the EU will finally lose its economic attractiveness?

      RF and PRC embrace each other

      - Russia and China will never be allies! China does not need this, and from the Russian Federation they have everything they want for free, i.e. for nothing - land, energy, minerals and all this in exchange for cheap consumer goods.

    Then maybe, for a start, China should stop supporting US sanctions against us, albeit at the level of financial institutions?

        I appreciate the Chinese leaders very well! Their main task is to play off the United States and Russia! And world domination in your pocket!
        Before the Second World War, the delegations of England and France were negotiating with the USSR on joint actions against Germany. And the secret services of these states handed over the protocols of the negotiations to Germany! The main goal was to incite Germany against the USSR! And it worked! I am absolutely sure that China will do the same if we give them military assistance.!

      - That's right ... - Personally, I've already written about this more than once ...
      - And then the United States and China will simply begin to cooperate on issues ... - how to divide the territory of Russia among themselves ...
      - Today, very responsible and serious times are coming for Russia ... - Russia can start cooperating with China against the United States and ... and suddenly get stabbed in the back from the same China ...
      - Today a new, very terrible world game of "redivision of the world" begins ...
      - And China is not doing very well ... - And the United States is not doing very well ... - And weak Russia simply does not count ... - no matter how much you say the word "halva" ... - the level of the Russian economy and the level welfare of the inhabitants of Russia "will not become sweeter" ...
      - And China today has very serious problems both in the economy and in the political management of China itself ... - It's just that China has reached a dead end and cannot continue the arms race indefinitely ...
      - The Americans ... also have very serious problems today ... a real crisis of power ...
      - What is the way out for them ??? - The simplest ... is a military conflict between China and the United States ... - But
      today, the United States is simply afraid to fight China ... - they are even more afraid of Russia, which will lie to its bones for China ... - just Russia will put millions of its Russians, but China will protect (just what will be left of Russia later ???) .. - This is despite the fact that China can easily put tens of millions of its countless population ... - without any terrible consequences for itself ...
      - If something gets muddled, then, most likely, all sides will use nuclear charges of "not very high power"
      - But China today is afraid to fight against the United States ... - there is no experience, the Chinese generals are not very capable of global military operations at a distant distance from China itself ... - And he cannot do without the help of a loyal Russia ...
      - But China also has a choice ... - is to conclude a secret separate agreement with the United States behind Russia's back ... - And in order to strike at Russia ... - for this China has enough funds ... - all the Chinese army is simply "sharpened for this" ...
      - Well, and there already ... - no comment ...

        Absolutely right! Russia should annoy the United States as little as possible so that the United States would completely switch to China. But we also need to have good relations with China, but we must clearly make it clear that they would not roll their lips, and in the conflict between the United States and China, Russia will take a neutral position! Let the two superpowers measure themselves with pipis, and Russia should modestly stand aside! As the United States did in the First and Second World War! And then Russia will come down the mountain and have both of them!

          My hut is on the edge, I don't know anything !!! This is not our position, we are not a banana republic and not Ukraine to behave this way, Russia is a world power capable of completely destroying any state on the planet, so neither the United States nor China can tell us and talk to us from a position of strength !! !

        What an absurd nonsense, China has practically surpassed the United States in terms of its economic power, it is almost as strong as it is in military power and is quite capable of inflicting unacceptable damage on America in a possible military conflict, why should he grovel and curry favor with the United States, but with Russia they are not it makes no sense to conflict either militarily or economically !!!

    As long as the US-EU did not fear the PRC's competition, everything was quiet and peaceful.
    The US-EU did not bother and, in pursuit of profit, transferred their production facilities to the PRC, and with them the technologies, which required local Chinese engineering personnel to service them.
    This stimulated the rise of education and the scientific potential of the PRC, the growth of incomes and the standard of living.
    There is no reason for the PRC to refuse cooperation with the US-EU; on the contrary, there are good reasons for the comprehensive expansion of cooperation.
    The economic and scientific potential has grown so much that today no one can withstand open competition with China.
    Therefore, the US-EU started a rollback - the growth of protectionism in international trade and arbitration organizations, tariff and non-tariff regulation, "games" with taxes and subsidies, threats, etc.
    In the event of a US blockade of sea trade routes, the PRC's policy of rapprochement with the Russian Federation, the creation of alternative banks, exchanges, rating agencies, payment systems, associations - ACEAN, VPTTP, RCEP, SCO, NSHP, EAEU looks natural.
    The US-EU perceive this as a threat to undermine the existing world order and the dominance of the dollar, which further increases the degree of confrontation with China.
    NATO is opposed to the Russian Federation in the west, and to confront the PRC in the east, the United States is building QUAD.
    Neither the PRC nor the Russian Federation are interested in aggravating relations with the US-EU, the main trading partners, and therefore will refrain to the last from concluding any legally binding military agreement.

    For China, the state political ideology is important, namely the communist one. And thanks to her, he achieved such outstanding results in the economy, putting capitalism at the service of his country, analyzing and taking into account the mistakes of the USSR. Unlike Russia, which itself threw itself into the service of capitalism, destroying along the way all the achievements of the USSR and sacrificing them. At this historical moment, China is beneficial if not an alliance, then at least even the appearance of an alliance with Russia. It is in its own interests to weaken the United States as much as possible and become world leaders. And, of course, China will traditionally not do anything for the sake of Russia to the detriment of the interests of its country. And, moreover, no unity of communist China with supposedly capitalist Russia, which is so offends the capitalist world, it is not necessary. He will not go to a tough confrontation with the rest of the world for the sake of an ephemeral friendship with Russia. And one should not forget, in addition, China's territorial claims to Russia, they have not gone anywhere, even if even today their students study geography on maps, where most of Siberia and the Far East are painted over like a temporarily lost Chinese territory. This question is just waiting for its time. ...

    I see everyone is so smart, I think Vladimir Vladimirovich himself with a mustache and knows better than us in the place of those taken what to do. But if there is an alliance with China, I think the Americans will be more modest, and everyone else.

    Russia should be seriously concerned with its economy, instead of building a power out of itself. She would at least become agrarian again, and that would be fine. And she would conclude an alliance with Mongolia, if she would not mind.
