On Monday, Chinese President Xi Jinping spoke at Davos Agenda, a virtual event organized by the World Economic Forum.

President Xi urged world leaders to put aside divisions and warned that a “new cold war” could turn hot, and must be avoided.

Moreover, Xi said that attempts to “isolate, intimidate, decouple and sanction” others will “only push the world into division, even confrontation.”

These were Xi’s first remarks to an international audience since the inauguration of President Joe Biden. The Biden administration has agreed with the Trump administration that China is committing “genocide” against the Uyghur Muslims.

“We should respect and accommodate differences, avoid meddling in other countries’ internal affairs and resolve disagreements through consultation and dialogue,” Xi said. “History and reality have made it clear time and again that the misguided approach of antagonism and confrontation — be it in the form of a cold war, hot war, trade war or tech war — will eventually hurt all countries’ interest and undermine everyone’s well-being.”

Under the Trump administration, tensions were high between China and the U.S.

The Chinese President explained his four-step approach to ensuring the world emerges stronger after the coronavirus pandemic, which originated in Wuhan, China.

According to Axios, the approach includes “macroeconomic policy coordination,” the avoidance of “arrogance, prejudice and hatred” in favor of “peaceful coexistence,” the reduction of global inequality, and the strengthening of global institutions on issues like public health and climate change.

Xi opposes the idea of imposing sanctions or seeking to “create isolation.” He warned that the pandemic should not be allowed to accelerate “decoupling” or the re-routing of supply chains, which is currently being debated in Washington.

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
