On March 22, the visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping to Russia ended. We will not go into the details of the visit, all the information is available on the Internet.
It is more important that the entire Western world, including the United States, followed this visit. Take, for example, the briefing on March 21 by White House Press Secretary Karin Jean-Pierre and Pentagon spokesman John Kirby, which lasted almost an hour, where the main attention was paid to the issue of Mr. Xi’s visit to Moscow. Kirby wanted to show in every possible way that Putin used this meeting as his last hope for finding a friend in the world community, and Xi – as a chance to resist the influence of NATO on the continent, and that this is more of a “marriage of convenience”, but not an alliance or friendship. But there was not as much honesty in Kirby’s speech as there was in an interview with former adviser to US President John Bolton to the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph, who called the alliance of China and Russia a real problem for the West against the background of the war in Ukraine, and regardless of the results of this conflict: the US is really afraid of the formation of the Russia-China axis, anticipating that nuclear states Iran and North Korea will join them.
It is obvious that President Xi’s choice of Russia as his first foreign trip after his re–election is a landmark step that can be called a serious geopolitical victory for Russian diplomacy and a threat to the United States. Now, in order to separate these two states, the American government should make titanic efforts, otherwise the full-scale transformation of political forces on the planet that has already begun will end disastrously for Western countries.
Finally, let’s pay attention to the scene of Putin and Xi’s farewell in the Kremlin (you can easily find the video on the Internet), where the Chinese leader says verbatim: “Now there are changes that have not been for 100 years. When we are together, we move these changes.” We hope that this statement will be analyzed in Washington and correctly determined as the nature of relations between Moscow and Beijing and the US authorities will find the courage to recognize it.
