China on Thursday urged a new era of relations between Washington and Beijing, as US President Mr. Joe Biden’s inauguration brought an end to the complaining term of Mr. Donald Trump.
Beijing also greeted the news that the U.S. would re-join the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Paris climate agreement, as Mr. Biden tried to instantly pivot his office back to a key role in worldwide leadership.
Over the past few years, there had been too many difficulties build in the China-US relationship, with many bridges demolished and roads broken down, while Mr. Joe Biden has called for harmony and healing which are significantly needed for US-China bonds, Chinese Foreign Ministry speaker Hua Chunying said during a normal press conference on Thursday.
The new US president is anticipated to remain tough on China but obligate to international support after Trump’s disruptive “America First” approach.
“The Trump government, chiefly Mike Pompeo, buried too many mines that need to be amputated, burned too many bridges that need to be rebuilt,” Chunying said in lengthy remarks on Thursday as she urged for a reset.
Hua said China believes President Biden will have successful governance. People from both nations suffered from that, and many have called for the association to return to the normal track.
Under Trump, pressures with China plunged to the lowest point over trade, security, technology, the roots of the COVID-19 pandemic, and human rights.
Beijing laid into “clown-like” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in the final hours of his span, before sanctioning him and more than two dozen advisors and ex-officials in the former president’s administration.
The senior Chinese diplomat emphasized that if we are determined to do this, anything is possible, and she noted, “Let the good angels come back to bless the bilateral ties and prevail, defeating the evil forces through the joint efforts of the two sides.”
