Parallels between Russia and China, which Washington is trying to draw, indicate the fact that the US is deliberately trying to escalate tensions worldwide, Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten wrote.
According to Blinken, the US does not support any of the parties. But Washington believes that it is important to resolve territorial disputes in a peaceful manner. In Ukraine and the South China Sea there are attempts to change the status quo by adopting unilateral measures, and the US does not agree with this, the US diplomat said.
"The fact that America draws parallels with Ukraine could mean that Washington is seeking to escalate the situation. It also gives rise to attempts to impose sanctions on China. The US hopes that it will help to strengthen their allies in Asia," DWN wrote.
However, according to the newspaper, such policy has already backfired in Europe. EU countries are severely affected by the anti-Russian sanctions, while Russia has managed to ‘survive’ them without any serious losses, DWN wrote.
