Biden to test allies with more coordinated approach to China
U.S. President Joe Biden took office about two weeks ago amid concern in some quarters at home and abroad that the new administration will gradually go soft on China. But the U.S. is unlikely to ease its tough stance on China, and tensions between the two countries are expected to rise. U.S. allies will likely be urged to work more closely with the Biden administration to cajole China into acting more responsibly on the world stage. Biden and his cabinet have already repeated tough language and taken tough actions with respect to China, notably on the most sensitive issues to Beijing: Taiwan and human rights.
