China Defends Trade With US Ahead of Pres. Trump's National Security Speech

  • China and Russia hit back at ‘imperial’ U.S. security strategy

On Monday, Trump unveiled his new National Security Strategy promising to prioritise United States economic interests and "pursue peace through strength".

"A quick reading of the strategy, especially of those parts that somehow mention our country, on the whole, reveal the imperial character of the document", Peskov told reporters.

The Kremlin has lambasted U.S. President Donald Trump's new national security strategy as "imperial" but lauded the U.S. for willing to cooperate with Russian Federation in areas of common interest.

"Otherwise, it will harm others as well as itself, " Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said, before urging the "meet with China halfway".

The US had, on Monday, put out a National Security Strategy report that said "the revisionist powers of China and Russia", Iran and North Korea, as well as terror groups, "are actively competing against the United States and our allies and partners". Addressing at Ronald Regan building in Washington, US president slammed his predecessors for protecting the interests of other countries at the cost of the U.S.' own. "At the same time, there are some modestly positive aspects, in particular, the readiness to cooperate in areas that correspond to American interests".

"It is futile for any country to distort the facts or to smear China", Hua said in Beijing.

"Chinese dominance risks diminishing the sovereignty of many states" in its region and beyond, the Trump administration's strategic document says.

The remarks also signaled that Trump may be relying more on U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, known as an economic nationalist, than on globalists such as Gary Cohn, head of the White House National Economic Council, the FT reported.

The security strategy contrasts with the friendly nature of Trump's first state visit to Beijing in November, when he received a lavish welcome and repeatedly praised President Xi Jinping.

China's Global Times newspaper, published by the ruling Communist Party, said Trump's report "reflects Washington's reluctance to accept the reality of China's rise".
