Biden was responding to a question about his remarks during the presidential debates that he wanted to punish China over the way Beijing has been behaving. He was asked if that could include economic sanctions or tariffs on China.
In April – Donald Trump had announced to withdraw the USA from WHO and accused the UN organisation for failing to oversee the onset of the coronavirus as it began to spread in China.
In a meeting with a bipartisan group of governors at Biden’s hometown in Wilmington, Delaware – he said that “It’s not so much about punishing China but it’s about making sure China understands they have got to play by the rules. It’s a simple proposition,”
Biden expressed his views on the re-join of WHO and said “We’re going to rejoin on day one as well and it needs reform, acknowledge, and re-join the Paris Climate Accord. We have to make sure that the rest of the world and we get together and make sure there are certain right lines the Chinese understand,”
Some Chinese international politics experts are considering Trump’s four years in power were the worst phase in China-US relations and now Biden and Xi jinping may come together to reduce trade-war between China and the US.
Chinese strategic experts said Biden entering the White House is expected to provide an opportunity for breakthroughs in resuming high-level communication and rebuilding mutual strategic trust between the two major countries.
