The previous system of interaction between the United States and China failed, as Beijing did not meet the вЂњdemocraticвЂќ hopes of the United States. This statement was made by the head of the state Department Mike Pompeo during his speech at the Richard Nixon presidential library in Yorba Linda.
вЂњThe previous system of reckless interaction with China has failed. We cannot continue it, we should not return to it,вЂќ the head of the American Foreign Ministry said.
He added that the United States should develop a new strategy that will protect the economy and the American way of life, will not allow the вЂњChinese centuryвЂќ.
Earlier it was reported that the US does not exclude that it will require the PRC to close the remaining diplomatic institutions in the country. Washington has already demanded that Beijing close the Consulate General in Houston. The official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China Wang Wenbin called a political provocation that requirement. The State Department also said it would not reopen the American Consulate in Wuhan, China, which was closed in January due to a new coronavirus pandemic.
