Kissinger warned that failure to resolve tensions between the United States and China could lead to such a situation between the two major powers.

Yang said: Even 20 or 30 years ago, the United States was not even qualified to say such a thing. Because this is not the way to deal with the Chinese people.
Brinken also said on Tuesday that the United States recognizes that the relationship between the two countries is complicated and will not force them to favor one side.

Kissinger said: “For the first time in human history, we have the ability to destroy ourselves within a limited time.
Kissinger said that the United States “must maintain a continuous dialogue with China” and clarify what the red line is. While negotiating “avoidable conflicts and, where possible, cooperative efforts.”
“This is our complex task. No one has fully succeeded yet,” he said. “But this is the essence of the relationship between the two countries, and this is the challenge the government is facing now.
