Reactions to Secretary Blinken’s Address on China Policy

On May 26, 2022, United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken delivered a speech at George Washington University titled ‘The Administration’s Approach to the People’s Republic of China’. During the speech, Secretary Blinken explained how the United States and China offer distinct visions for the global community, and characterized China as ‘the most serious long-term challenge to the international order’.
