Economic ties with China do not allow the USA and Europe to seriously engage in conflict with China, political scientist and leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on February 28 on the air of the Sunday Evening with Vladimir Solovyov program on the Russia One TV channel.
Analyzing the US policy of Euro-Atlantic solidarity, Kurginyan offered to consider what goal it is being set to achieve. The US administration claims that one of its main enemies today is China. But China is too important for both the USA and Europe from an economic point of view.
“The first point is that we’re going ally against China, right? This is a new page of American history, but the [European countries] do not want to ally against China, because China is already becoming their main economic partner,” Kurginyan stressed. “It’s unclear whether the USA can unite against China to the end. It is a beginning of a certain hybrid: on the one hand we are intensifying an economic dialogue in some fields, while on the other hand we are accelerating a confrontation. We simultaneously put incompatible things into practice that will eventually lead to a complete contradiction,” the expert said.
According to Sergey Kurginyan, despite the pressure exerted by the United States, Europe is gently maneuvering because it cannot risk its ties with China.
The political scientist recalled that former US President Donald Trump cared little for Europe because he was focused on solving domestic problems. Under Biden, however, the USA is once again beginning to dictate Europe’s policy.
“What is Euro-Atlantic solidarity: ‘We have come. What have we come with? We have come with a police baton, and if you don’t like it, then you’ll be beaten.’ Trump was saying, ‘The hell with you, do what you want,..’ Now Biden comes and says, ‘No, no, we are allies, we love you, we are restoring Euro-Atlantic solidarity.’ What does that mean? It means, ‘We will watch your every gesture, your every word, constantly dictate you what to do, and don’t you dare to try to defy us.’ That is, the American dictatorship over Europe is returning,” concluded the political scientist.
