Biden’s pick for foreign policy head affirms a push to get allies on board with U.S. policy on China

22:00 - On Monday, Biden announced he intends to nominate Antony Blinken as secretary of State.

Although the Biden ... and his team are very familiar with China, they cannot avoid these problems,” said Shen Yamei, deputy director and associate research fellow at state-backed think tank China Institute of International Studies’ department for American studies.
