UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The American analytical magazine The Atlantic has published an article about China’s emergence on the international stage.
“Since the Cold War, Beijing has viewed Washington as a serious political rival, while Washington has only recently learned of this strategic rivalry. In addition, US observers have come to better understand Beijing’s ambitions as well as China’s possible challenges to US hegemony.
Political analysts are talking about the idea of the transition of political power in an environment where Beijing will soon eclipse the military power and economic weight of Americans globally and even replace the United States, “says the US magazine.
The Atlantic then discusses two problems: “First, the Chinese have not yet taken full measure of their emergence and influence on the world stage. Chinese President Xi Jinping’s appeal to the people to try to fully understand the national dream of rebuilding and rejuvenating the country proves that the Chinese will have to have a good understanding of the political and their society. Secondly, it remains to be seen whether China can achieve its national goal of reconstruction and rejuvenation.
It is true that Xi Jinping is more powerful than the former Chinese rulers, but he remains more fragile; China’s Communist Party suffers from a serious crisis of legitimacy, and Jinping’s efforts to transform China into a developed country risk intensifying this crisis. These elements could greatly contribute to the deterioration of the situation in China in the short term and seriously weaken the country’s long-term competitive capabilities.”
According to the American magazine, “Washington will, in any case, face a more powerful and richer China which is bogged down, itself, in an economic recession and internal problems”.
“The Chinese army is rapidly expanding and expanding its capabilities and has already unbalanced the balance of power in Asia for its benefit,” said The Atlantic.
In the process, the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IIES) reports that since 2014, the Chinese army has started producing a large number of submarines, warships and frigates, to the point that the number ships now in possession of the Chinese army exceed that of the German, Indian, Spanish, Taiwanese and British navies.
