The US Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken recently compared China’s behavior in the South China Sea with ‘Russia’s activities’ in Ukraine. According to DWN, this demonstrates a dangerous trend in US foreign policy.

Parallels between Russia and China, which Washington is trying to draw, indicate the fact that the US is deliberately trying to escalate tensions worldwide, Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten wrote.

The US Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken said last week that China’s territorial claims are comparable to the actions of Russia in the east of Ukraine and that China poses a serious threat to peace and stability. China is expanding its influence in the region by creating artificial islands in the South China Sea, while the Philippines and Vietnam consider such activities illegal.

According to Blinken, the US does not support any of the parties. But Washington believes that it is important to resolve territorial disputes in a peaceful manner. In Ukraine and the South China Sea there are attempts to change the status quo by adopting unilateral measures, and the US does not agree with this, the US diplomat said.

“The fact that America draws parallels with Ukraine could mean that Washington is seeking to escalate the situation. It also gives rise to attempts to impose sanctions on China. The US hopes that it will help to strengthen their allies in Asia,” DWN wrote.
