China’s strategy is based on the premise that America’s top allies, Japan and South Korea are not in good terms.
China’s strategy of driving the US out of the Indo-Pacific will be upended by President Joe Biden’s upcoming Camp David Summit with Japan and South Korea’s leaders, according to Rahm Emmanuel.
From the article posted by Washington Examiner, the upcoming summit of President Biden with the leaders of Japan and South Korea will upend China’s strategy to keep the US away from the Indo-Pacific region, according to Rahm Emmanuel.
Emmanuel also stated that China’s strategy is based on the idea that America’s top allies, Japan and South Korea could not find equal ground, and through this summit, the US has created something that China was hoping never would happen. Japan and South Korea have not been in good terms ever since the World War II.
Emmanuel, who is the US envoy in Japan, also reveled the ramifications of Japan and South Korea’s leaders convening at the summit.
‘China’s strategy states how they are the rising power. Get in line or receive the Philippine treatment’, says Emmanuel at the Brookings Institution.
According to The Gazette, There is an increase of interest regarding the statement about Japan and South Korea. The two capitals have remained divided from the tensions stemming from World War II. However, the summit on Friday is intended to launch a “trilateral annual summit.”
The agreements on Friday will be a step forward in recognizing the common security picture that the US, Japan and South Korea are facing, according to Kurt Campbell. He also stated that the US is taking a quite substantial step toward recognizing that Japan and South Korea are facing the same horizon with the US and it will require a common action.
Chinese officials, however, are not happy with the US’ actions. Stating that the meeting with Japan and South Korea is an attempt to create a “mini-NATO” in the Indo-Pacific. Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi characterized the US as “the biggest destabilizing factor in the world.”
