China benefits from global focus on Ukraine

On Friday’s “New Day” show on CNN, the author, Washington Post CNN columnist and political analyst Josh Rogin said that while the world’s focus is on Russia, China is “using this distraction” to advance its goals, and “Xi Jinping wants the world to ignore this. what he’s doing and our job is to pay attention because what he’s doing is rearranging the chessboard in Asia for China’s benefit, not ours.

Rogin said: “[T]he whole world is understandably distracted by Putin’s horrific war in Ukraine. And Chinese President Xi Jinping, a close ally of Putin, is using this distraction to quickly advance his strategy. We see it with Taiwan. We see it in the South Pacific. We see this all over the world where Putin wants the world’s attention, but Xi Jinping wants the world not to pay attention to what he is doing and our job is to pay attention to that. Because what he’s doing is rearranging the chessboard in Asia to China’s advantage, not ours.

He added: “China has global ambitions, and they are trying to make progress in many, many places. And we have to confront them in many, many places. And we can have all these alliances and pivots to Asia. But if China continues to gain influence in all these places close to us, then what’s the point? »
