Why the United States can not stifle China’s progress

The United States is increasingly belligerent in its efforts to stifle China’s progress and pressure its allies to do the same. But none of the tactics – trade wars, “freedom of navigation” operations (FONOPs), pushing allies to drop Huawei equipment or the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), etc. – have worked.

In fact, one could even argue that the more the United States tries to put China down, the higher and stronger the Asian country stands up. Accusing China of setting “debt traps”, for example, has seen several nations join their BRI.

The most recent to join BRI were Argentina and Nicaragua. The Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) also signed a comprehensive agreement with China on cooperation in a wide range of areas, including investment, security and more.
