The New U.S. Ambassador of China Arrives to Protect Beijing’s Interests

China's new U.S. ambassador arrives to 'safeguard' Beijing's interests

China’s new U.S. ambassador arrives to ‘safeguard’ Beijing’s interests

China’s newly-appointed ambassador to the United States, Xie Feng, arrived in New York City on May 23 with a call to “safeguard the interests of China,” according to a statement from the country’s embassy. Xie, who was vice foreign minister prior to his appointment, takes up the role after a six-month period in which China had no ambassador to the U.S. In a statement released in English, Xie acknowledged that the two countries face “serious difficulties and challenges,” but stated that his mission is to “enhance China-U.S. exchanges and cooperation.”

Tensions between China and the U.S. have escalated in recent months, with one highlight being the U.S. shooting down what it alleges was a Chinese spy balloon over American airspace in February. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken had been due to visit Beijing at that time but decided to postpone the trip due to the incident. However, President Joe Biden recently said that tensions between the two countries will “begin to thaw very shortly.”

Newly-appointed Chinese Ambassador to the United States pledges to protect Beijing’s interests

China’s new ambassador to the U.S., Xie Feng, arrived in New York on Tuesday with a message to “safeguard the interests of China,” according to a statement by the Chinese embassy in the U.S. Xie’s appointment comes after a period of six months when China had no ambassador to the U.S. In his address to the media, Xie acknowledged the “serious difficulties and challenges” that persist in the bilateral relationship and stated that his mission is to “enhance China-U.S. exchanges and cooperation.” Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of State has not yet issued a response to Xie’s arrival. The U.S. and China have been in a period of heightened tensions since February after the U.S. shot down an alleged Chinese spy balloon, prompting the postponement of a planned visit by Secretary of State Antony Blinken to Beijing. However, over the weekend, President Joe Biden indicated that U.S.-China ties would “begin to thaw very shortly.” Nonetheless, analysts believe that the most optimistic scenario for a thaw in relations is just a halt in the decline of relations.
