Diplomat Ruslan Osypenko believes that in a global conflict, China will avoid escalation and conflict with the West

He shared his opinions with Espreso TV.

"Everyone is preparing to sit down at the negotiating table. I think this is what is causing the escalation in the world. China is now trying to create better conditions for negotiations with the United States. However, it is worth noting that the domestic political and economic situation in China is not conducive to Beijing's desire for aggravation and conflict. Most likely, China will refrain from conflict altogether. Another possible scenario is that China could reach an agreement with the United States. These could be temporary tactical agreements in order to recover economically," Osypenko explained.

The diplomat also expressed the opinion that Moscow is involved in the Hamas attack on Israel.

"The events taking place in Israel were provoked by Iran and Moscow. Because at this historical stage, these two countries have interests that completely coincide. Russia is losing the war with Ukraine, so they need to provoke other conflicts that will divert resources and attention of the West. Tehran, on the other hand, is eager to draw the United States into a war with Israel," he added.

Tensions between the US and China

Recently, relations between the two countries have been strained. They have deteriorated primarily because of US support for Hong Kong. Also, because of the scandal with the Chinese "spy" balloon shot down in the sky over the United States. They were further aggravated by Biden's statements calling Xi Jinping a dictator.

In addition, the United States imposed restrictions on the supply of chips to China, which seriously affected Beijing's economy.

Also on September 14, the United States imposed sanctions on more than 150 companies and individuals who help Russia circumvent restrictions. Subsequently, the United States added 42 Chinese companies that support Russia's military and defense industry to the export control list.

In addition, the administration of US President Joe Biden warned Beijing of plans to update rules restricting the supply of artificial intelligence chips and chip manufacturing tools to China in early October.

On October 7, the United States and China were close to organizing a meeting between US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping in November in California.

At the same time, senior US Senator Chuck Schumer made a rare trip to China and said that Washington was not seeking to separate from Beijing, but wanted fair treatment for American companies.

On October 15, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that after a series of contacts between Beijing and Washington, bilateral relations between the countries stopped deteriorating and stabilized.
