Will China and U.S. fall into limited confrontation? (2)

(People's Daily Online)

17:23, October 25, 2012

Republicans and Democrats are equally concerned about China, but 17 percent more Republicans are concerned about China-U.S. economic and trade relations than Democrats. It seems that if Mitt Romney is elected, the United States will be far more likely to come into economic and trade conflict with China than under the Obama administration.

Third, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have seldom talked about diplomatic, military, and strategic policies toward China during their presidential debates.

Traditional diplomatic, human rights, and security issues facing China-U.S. relations have been downplayed, indicating that the Republican and Democratic parties have reached consensus on ways of handling these controversial issues, and on continuing tough security policy against China.

It is highly likely for a U.S. government that belittles cooperation with China in diplomatic and strategic fields to favor economic and trade confrontation with China, and to even prepare for limited trade and security confrontation with China.
