China strikes back

China published a report on Monday accusing the US of using multiple methods to maintain its “world supremacy”, which it considers a global risk, just when relations between the two countries are experiencing moments of tension.

The Asian giant’s Foreign Ministry shared a document titled “American hegemony and its dangers” stating that Washington “has acted more boldly” since the end of the World Wars to “interfere in the internal affairs of other countries.” The five-point publication looks at American political, military, economic, technological, and cultural hegemony throughout history.

Chinese Foreign Ministry blames the US for organizing “color revolutions” and to launch wars to “promote democracy”, while maintaining a “policy of blocs” that “stokes conflict and confrontation”. China gives as an example the interference of the New Monroe Doctrine in Latin America, used to defend the principle of “America for the Americans”, but which, according to the Chinese authorities, represents “America for the United States”.

The report cites a book by former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in which the politician revealed that the North American country “had planned to intervene in Venezuela” to “force Maduro to reach an agreement with the opposition” or “deprive the country of its ability to sell oil or gold for foreign currency”. The document denounces the “military hegemony” of the US, listing the conflicts in which it has participated since its independence in 1776. It also explains that the US has an annual military budget of 700,000 million dollars, covering “40% of the entire planet”.

The Chinese report highlights that the “US hegemony at the economic level” was achieved after creating different organizations to “form the international monetary system around the dollar”, which is “the main source of instability and uncertainty in the world economy”. And it is criticized that during the pandemic, the US “injected trillions of dollars into the global market”, which caused other currencies to depreciate and “a large number of developing countries were affected by high inflation”.

In the technological field, China stressed that the US “seeks to discourage the scientific development” of other countries “by exercising a monopoly and restrictions in high-tech fields.” And he sees the “global expansion” of American culture as an essential part of his “foreign strategy,” urging the US to “critically examine” its actions, in addition to abandoning “arrogance and prejudice” and its “hegemonic and intimidation practices.”
