Anthony Blinken Biden's Secretary of State: Trump was right to take a tough approach to China

Anthony Blinken, US President-elect Joe Biden's candidate for Secretary of State, said President Donald Trump was right to take a tough approach to China, even if he disagreed with him in all of his approaches, and endorsed an assessment that Beijing was committing genocide in Xinjiang.

Anthony Blinken Biden's Secretary of State: Trump was right to take a tough approach to China


Blinken said, during a Senate session to approve his candidacy, on Tuesday, that "there is no doubt" that China is the most dangerous challenge facing the United States compared to any other country, adding that he believes there is a very strong basis for developing bipartisan policy to stand up to Beijing.


When asked whether he agreed with an assessment made by Secretary of State in the Trump administration, Mike Pompeo, on Tuesday, that China was committing genocide against the Muslim minority, Blinken said, "That would have been my judgment as well."


He added, "The introduction of men, women and children into detention camps, and the attempt to influence them and re-educate them so that they become supporters of the ideology of the Chinese Communist Party, all of this shows an effort to commit genocide."


China denies Washington's accusations of human rights violations.


"I think we have to work to make sure that we do not import goods made by forced labor from Xinjiang ... and we also need to make sure not to export technologies and tools that could be used to further repress them," Blinken said, when asked what his response would be during the first 30 days as foreign minister. This is a point from which to start.


He also said that his country during the Biden era, who holds the presidency today, will remain committed to ensuring the ability of Taiwan, which China considers a breakaway territory, to defend itself.
