China most significant challenge to US - Blinken

United States President-elect Joe Biden's choice for secretary of state, Antony Blinken (pictured), stressed on Tuesday that China currently presents "the most significant challenge" to the US.

"We have to start by approaching China from a position of strength, not weakness," Blinken told US senators at his confirmation hearing.

"President [Donald] Trump was right in taking a tougher approach to China," the incoming secretary of state also acknowledged, but added he has "issues with the way" Trump "carried it out."
