Blinken said the US will conduct a dialogue with China from a position of strength

140

Another, to put it mildly, unfriendly statements made by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken against China. Recall that a few days ago Blinken made attacks on China, pointing out that Beijing "violates human rights in Tibet, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Hong Kong." Then, during a direct meeting with representatives of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, the US Secretary of State announced that this "has ceased to be China's internal affairs and has become an international matter."


Today, the head of the US State Department continued his line of confrontation with the PRC. In an interview with CNN journalist Anthony Blinken announced that the United States would conduct a dialogue with China from a position of strength.

Blinken:

More and more areas of confrontation are emerging in our relations with Beijing. But we continue to cooperate on various issues.

Blinken added that Washington will cooperate with China in those areas that directly relate to US interests.

Earlier in Washington, in about the same vein, they announced further cooperation with Russia. If the US is profitable, they cooperate, if there is no benefit, they immediately transfer the "composition" to the sanctions rails.

The US Secretary of State added that Washington intends to develop "a unified position with allies in response to destructive actions and challenges from China." In fact, Blinken made it clear that the United States will continue to spin the anti-Chinese sanctions flywheel.

Earlier, China imposed its sanctions against several citizens of the United States, Canada, Britain and the EU for interfering in the political situation in the PRC. Chinese sanctions were the answer, but Blinken declared that "this is unacceptable." That is, it is acceptable to impose sanctions on China, but it is unacceptable to respond to these sanctions. American logic is the logic of "exclusivity."

              Oh, is it ?! The United States has nothing more to do than conduct a dialogue with China from a position of strength!
              The United States already has a soft spot on its back from China's retaliatory measures.

                      All American administrations demand from the world the recognition of their rights of exclusivity. But if the Trump administration did it relatively peacefully, threatening but not starting new wars, then the current administration ... (Biden? Democrats? Harris?) Is ready, it seems, to unleash, in addition to the ongoing in the Middle East, not one war, but both in Europe and Asia. And, as usual, throw them into the front line of the vassals. In Asia, they are trying to use India, and in Europe - Ukraine and the team of Europe's Russophobes. And they themselves routinely threaten everyone who is in the slightest degree independent. First of all - to Russia and China.

            don't mislead the audience
            It must be said that Russia is not exporting to China what it is to other countries. In 2018, almost 60% of exports were in seafood - frozen fish, fishmeal, crustaceans and shellfish. Of the rest, soybeans, rapeseed and rapeseed oil constituted a significant part. The share of grain, which is a key Russian export commodity, was a small part. Meat supplies were also limited.
            The situation with the latter in 2019-2020 has changed markedly. The export of meat increased several times, only poultry in January-October was supplied for $ 230 million. The export of pork through Hong Kong is gradually growing.

                  Yes, many different ones. But you and the small-town ministers from United Russia are talking about security, meaning only wheat. For sugar beets, rapeseed, corn, potatoes, the dependence is from 60 to 90%. 70% of broiler hatching eggs. And this is the data of the Ministry of Agriculture.
                  It is necessary to shout about this, and not to hush up.
                  It is a betrayal and sabotage to ensure import substitution only on paper in 20 years.

                    There are no exact statistics on the market share of Russian-made vegetable seeds; approximate figures are always named. Statistics for each culture are not fully compiled. For example, almost all cabbage seeds are produced abroad, but in fact they are domestic hybrids, although they are grown outside the country. As soon as they are brought into Russia, they are considered foreign, ”says Svetlana Koroleva, head of the vegetable growing department of the All-Russian Rice Research Institute.
                    There are not many favorable zones in Russia suitable for seed processing. So that the problem lies not so much in breeding as in seed production. Domestic research institutes are already capable of breeding good varieties and hybrids of vegetables, however, the material security of seed farms that are part of the structure of the institutes is low ..

                    The problem is not that we cannot, we have all the resources. The problem is that we don't want ...
                    Bottom line: it smells fried - the seeds will appear.

                    And by the way, albeit slowly, the work is underway.
                    Example for beets:
                    In Russia, in 2021, the share of domestically bred seeds in sugar beet crops may increase 2,6 times, up to 8-10%, the Ministry of Agriculture reports.
                    According to the results of the sowing campaign in 2020, this figure was 3,05% against 0,6% in 2019.

                      Yes, +/- 5-10%. And even with this error, the result is catastrophic.

                      In Russia, in 2021, the share of domestically bred seeds in sugar beet crops may increase 2,6 times, up to 8-10%,

                      The key word in this statement is "may." But even if this happens, is it not funny to you from the goal - to provide import substitution for sugar in the amount of 8-10% of the total domestic demand?

                        Maybe it will, the trend is visible and the trend is clear.
                        Less than 1% in 2019
                        3,5% in 2020
                        8% or 10% in 2021, easy. I believe in this figure.

                        Doesn't it make you laugh at the goal - to provide import substitution for sugar in the amount of 8-10% of the total domestic demand?


                        Not funny, it's sad and sad.

                        The real problem is not that we cannot, we have all the resources. And opportunities too, by the way. The problem is that they try to do this very slowly:
                        In 2019, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education managed to create 100 new laboratories, mainly in the field of breeding and the molecular genetic industry. In 2020, they issued new samples. In 2021, it is planned to commission a center for the analysis of the genomes of cultivated plants. The construction of agrobiotechnoparks will begin in 2022.


                        But this is slow, too slow. The main problem is that breeders in Russia are weakly connected to the market. And the scheme for returning money to breeding and seed production "does not function at all." From here there is no flow of money back to science and seed production centers. Hence, it is the State that must regulate and create the rules of the game. And demand their observance. And if we don’t do it, we will be left behind.

                        Soon we will see, in general, everything goes to this, that they will press.

        China is not Russia, for which the preservation of the notorious "partner relations" is above all else (how else, if "everything" is kept by the partners and is located, both state and personal, with the "elite"?). Russia only has - "" Zakharov on Twitter "," regrets "and" hopes for future interaction. "China, on the other hand, can bite. And it hurts to bite:
        It would seem, what does the world famous luxury clothing brand Burberry have to do with the showdown between Beijing and London or Washington? As it turned out, the most direct one. The company is part of the Better Cotton Initiative, a group that advocates for more advanced cotton production. Back in October last year, members of this community announced that they would give up Xinjiang cotton, because in this region "there are problems with the observance of human rights." Well, anyway, that's what a variety of human rights activists say ...
        In response, the whole of the Middle Kingdom turned away from Burberry - social networks are overflowing with calls not to buy the products of this company, and the famous Chinese actress Zhou Dongyu terminated her advertising contract with the company. She, like many other public figures, declare that they intend to "support their country in boycotting companies that spread lies about Xinjiang."
        “Under fire” was not only the manufacturer mentioned above, but also a number of leading world brands, which also very imprudently decided to support the Xinjiang theme. So, the Swedish company H&M, which last year refused to cooperate with textile factories from this region, is today excluded from all electronic trading platforms of the Middle Kingdom, including such a giant as Alibaba. The ostracism of the Chinese and such "giants" as Adidas, Nike, New Balance did not escape. Chinese celebrities are breaking contracts with him and calling on their compatriots to boycott those goods that they advertised yesterday.

        How tangible can be the losses from such a situation for well-known manufacturers? More than serious - that's for sure. For example, the same H & M has in China, which is the third largest market for it in the world, more than five hundred stores, which brought the brand in 2019 about one and a half billion dollars in revenue. A very similar situation is with Nike, whose products in the Middle Kingdom are sold only slightly less than in Europe. 7 thousand stores in the country is impressive, as well as last year's earnings in China, which amounted to $ 6,7 billion.

        Such blows do not pass without consequences - and, as far as we know, they have already come. The all-knowing Forbes claims that Nike shares, which have shown strong growth over the past year, immediately "sank" by 6% after the scandal in China. H&M quotes have dropped by 4% so far, but it will still be ... At the very least, current events should make corporations think that it is hardly worth getting into purely political scandals between world powers in an effort to earn a reputation as "advocates of human rights." Costs too much ...

        In this situation, it is worth noting that the Chinese experience of rebuffing other people's attempts to "educate" the country by unceremoniously interfering in its internal affairs, perhaps, should be adopted by Russia as well. At least due to the fact that such attempts are made against her on a regular basis. What we can and should learn for sure is the Chinese social cohesion around the goal of protecting the reputation, honor and dignity of our homeland. If necessary, then to the detriment of personal interests and income. In the modern world, it is not easy for a country that is not part of the conventional elite of the Western "civilized community" to make its representatives reckon with themselves. But, as we can see, it is quite real.

      An official of this rank makes similar statements to the world's second economy.
      Whether the second is a very big question. If financial bubbles are thrown out of the US GDP, and the stock market, which has become obsolete by the assessment of capitalization, is slightly scratched out, then God forbid the United States to sit firmly in second place. The real production is that ... They themselves were transferred to China. Yes to India, with other Thailand and Vietnam.

    The world hegemon will not tolerate competitors in his place. Therefore, against China, Russia and others who have the potential to stand in one place with the United States or even push them out, they will do all sorts of dirty tricks and nasty things until they lose their potential and collapse at the feet of the winner. Therefore, one should not be surprised at the sanctions, this is a grip for the future.

      Sanctions can of course be a very powerful tool. But the United States, neither China nor Russia, can single-handedly bend it into a ram's horn. An obedient coalition is needed, and as the previous examples show, the United States, despite the sanctions, if necessary, it trades, but in their opinion, everyone except the United States should adhere to the American sanctions policy strictly, even though it will be like a sickle in one place.

      The number of countries with which the United States wants to wage an economic war (with the help of a broad obedient coalition) is growing.
      The costs for the "coalition" are also increasing.

      The coalition is of course obedient, but discontent is growing. The United States will begin to impose sanctions on Sarats, allies, fellow travelers ...?

      There are already grazes with the EU, Turkey is under sanctions, India's main ally against China has also already been announced as a candidate for sanctions ...

      As if the United States is not left alone against everyone.

      By the way, China's response is so harsh, most likely because the Chinese knew that this was the beginning of the actions of the broad Anti-Chinese coalition.
      The tough answer is a signal for the US sixes that if they continue, it will cost them dearly.

      Shit like Hitler? It is enough for China to tighten up the base of mattresses, and the resources will drive the mattresses in convoys, and China will calmly heat them. The PRC does not even have a nuclear warhead, it will be like with the USSR, they, like ours, will rivet resources in the depths. And if the mattress takes a vigorous club, then the mattress continent will go nuts, because no one knows how many nuclear warheads are hidden in the caves.

        Well, about "just sinking the convoys" I somehow very much doubt it. The United States still has absolute superiority at sea. And in general, I don’t really believe in the hot war between the United States and China, but even if it’s the flag in their hands, both of them. But from a position of strength - let them talk to themselves.

Turn on the logic, if no one knows about their nuclear weapons, then why should they stick out something new? This is a wise monkey, it is enough to start riveting with packs of weapons, and then you can stick out the navel like mattresses.

    It's time for the United States to stop puffing its cheeks. In industrial production, China is several times larger than the United States (for example, in steel production more than 10 times). The existing technological lag in certain types of production is being eliminated at a rapid pace. In the next 10 years, China will become the absolute world leader in all areas of science, technology and production.
