The US has a relationship with Beijing of its own, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said during a press briefing on Friday, when asked about President Biden’s take on the strengthening ties between Russia and China “through the lens of his broader foreign policy goals, agenda items.”
“Well, we – the president views it – views it as we have our own relationship with China,” Psaki said, somewhat dodging the original question and straying into the issues related to the situation around Ukraine.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken recently spoke to China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi and “underscored the global security and economic risks posed by further Russian aggression against Ukraine,” Psaki added.
“We’ve also conveyed that a destabilizing conflict in Europe would impact China’s interests all over the world. And certainly, China should know that,” she stressed.
