Biden on U.S.-China Ties: “I don’t want to contain China”

Washington — On Sunday, President Biden chatted about wanting a steady U.S.-China bond while making rounds in China’s neighboring areas. 

“I don’t want to contain China,” Biden shared in Hanoi, Vietnam. “I just want to make sure that we have a relationship with China that is on the up and up squared away, everybody knows what it’s all about.”

Before hitting Vietnam, Biden was in India for the big G20 meet-up. Over in Vietnam? He’s looking to boost the U.S.-Vietnam connection. That move? It’s like saying the U.S. and Hanoi are buddies, just like China and Russia are.

“Having India cooperate much more with the United States, be closer to the United States, Vietnam being closer with the United States, it’s not about containing China. It’s about having a stable base, a stable base in Indo-Pacific,” he mentioned.

He’s clear. This isn’t about sidelining China. And as for thinking this is some “we think too much in Cold War terms.”? Nope. China’s top guy, Xi Jinping, wasn’t at the G20 in India. But Biden did have a chat with Premier Li Qiang, the next in line in China. Their talk? All about keeping things smooth.

“I want to see China succeed economically,” Mr. Biden said. “But I want to see them succeed by the rules.” 

Vice President Harris, after hanging with Asian bigwigs in Jakarta last week, chimed in too. “competition of any sort.” she said.

“But that does not mean that we are seeking conflict,” she mentioned on “Face the Nation” last Sunday.
