Biden yesterday promised to prevent China from becoming the most powerful country in the world.
Beijing reacted to the statement of US President Joe Biden that Washington will not allow China to become the most powerful country in the world.
вЂњYou also said that Washington cannot allow China to surpass the United States. China's goal is not to surpass the United States, but to constantly surpass itself by becoming better, вЂњ Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said.
She added that China and the United States are the two largest economies in the world and it is not surprising that when interests are intertwined, rivalry arises between them. The main thing is that it should be a healthy competition and not a life-and-death struggle, Hua Chunying said.
The day before, Biden gave the first press conference, at which he said that he would not allow China to become the most powerful country in the world.
Earlier, Beijing said that Western countries do not have enough potential for sanctions pressure on China.
