Blinken: «Shoring up our democracy is a foreign policy imperative»

Secretary of State Tony Blinken said yesterday in his first major speech, «A Foreign Policy for the American People,» that the U.S. relationship with China is «the biggest geopolitical test of the 21st century»:

-«Our relationship with China will be competitive when it should be, collaborative when it can be, and adversarial when it must be. The common denominator is the need to engage China from a position of strength.»

-Blinken also said: «Shoring up our democracy is a foreign policy imperative.»

A 24-page national security strategy rolled out by the administration warns that China «has rapidly become more assertive»:

-«It is the only competitor potentially capable of combining its economic, diplomatic, military, and technological power to mount a sustained challenge to a stable and open international system.»
