Blingen calls on the EU to recognize China

D.He said the Chinese retaliation created a “new situation”, in fact a “new situation”. EU Foreign Representative Joseph Borel made the remarks after a meeting of foreign ministers on Monday evening. At the meeting they learned that they had retaliated against Beijing – not only against the European Parliament, but also against the Council’s Political and Security Council, in which all member states were represented by ambassadors. Borel called the move “unacceptable.” He will report to the Council of Europe on how relations with China have developed since 2019. Spinard said then that heads of state and government would certainly take into account the latest developments.

In person, they will not meet this Thursday. Many government leaders did not want to board the plane because of the third wave of the epidemic. Of course, this almost allows another guest to attend: US President Joe Biden will join in the evening. It is a good thing that Biden’s Foreign Minister Anthony Blinkan has come to Brussels. After the NATO Council of Foreign Ministers, he met with EU Commission President Ursula van der Leyen and Borel on Wednesday evening. All of these conversations were about China. The government in Washington sees the relationship with Beijing as a central geopolitical challenge for the next few years; It wants to create a union of democracies.

No “we or you”

Blingen made his first contribution to Brussels – with a speech on the renewal of the Atlantic Partnership he gave at NATO headquarters. In it he described China and Russia as “the most important threats” to Western democracies. He first named China and referred to the militarization of the South China Sea, where the country threatened maritime independence.

“Beijing’s military aspirations are increasing every year,” Blingen said. He warned that Moscow and Beijing were trying to “drive the wedge between us.” Economic threats, such as those pursued by China against Australia, should not be separated from other types of pressure. “If any of us are forced, we must respond as allies.”
