Competition between China and the United States is inevitable, but it should be healthy, said Chinese Deputy Foreign Minister Le Yucheng.
According to him, Washington “overemphasizes the factors of competition and confrontation in Sino-American relations” and downplays the importance of cooperation, leading to negative consequences.
“Competition between China and the United States is inevitable, but we believe that competition should be healthy when one pursues the other, and not unfair, in which you survive, and the second dies,” Free News quoted the diplomat as saying.
He noted that China and the United States are the two largest economies globally, which is why they definitely need to settle relations. To view Beijing as its “most serious competitor,” which Washington does, is wrong.
