Its double-sided policy towards China has embraced some new developments as well. The relationship between China and US is entering into a "New Normal" of deeper cooperation mixed with deeper precaution. The concept of China being a "hardliner" has been brought arisen again.The idea of China being a "hardliner" was being hyped during Obamas first term, trying to misrepresent Chinas standpoint on issues like the South China Sea dispute. Today the US government is again worried that Chinas foreign policy is getting tougher, and that China might feel confident enough to challenge the lead role of the US rather than directing its efforts to the maintenance of Sino-US relationship, and responding to the demands of the US. It is widely acknowledged in United States that US is still in the first phase of getting to understand China’s foreign policy under the new leadership, and people even suggest that the relationship between China and US is now at a "crossroads".In fact, US strategic anxiety is the main reason why the theory of China being a hardliner is resurfacing. The anxiety results from disappointment over the current situation in the US, global controversies in Iran, North Korea, and the Islamic state, and uncertainty about the future of the global economy and its Western Allies.Whether the issue is "one road and one belt", or the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, all of these are strategies though which China is trying to promote global inclusiveness. Chinas foreign policy is not aimed at economic expansionism or cultural hegemonye. Peaceful development and mutually beneficial cooperation have always been at the forefront of Chinas attitude towards the US. The US has no need to be anxious about China being a hardliner. Rational thinking about Chinas strategic intent and development trend is the way to resolve US anxiety and build a new relationship with China.This article is edited and translated from 《不是中国强硬,而是美国焦虑》, source: Peoples Daily Overseas Edition, author: Yi Wei(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Editor:Yao Xinyu,Liang Jun)Email|Print|Comments      twitter    facebook    Sina Microblog    reddit    Increases the bookmarkdiggGoogleDeliciousbuzzfriendfeedLinkedindiigostumbleuponQzoneQQ MicroblogAdd your commentName:SubmitViewRelated readingMOC condemns U.S. ruling on China-made solar cellsNo joke, China job creator for USChina to become second-wealthiest nation in worldUS upholds high tariffs on solar panel imports (2)We RecommendJoint anti-piracy drill
