Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva has met his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping in Beijing. Before departing Brazil earlier this week, Lula pledged that his country is going to consolidate its relationship with China.

The Brazilian president visiting China can be perceived as a good sign now that more people become frustrated over the US’ dominance in a uni-polar world, Dr. Ken Hammond, writer and professor of East Asian and global history at New Mexico State University revealed.

Xi Jinping said after the talks with Lula da Silva that as comprehensive strategic partners, both sides share extensive common interests. Xi also underlined that China sees the bilateral relationship as a high priority on its diplomatic agenda.

He added that those countries see that the Chinese are trying to build a new multi-centric international order, and that Beijing is trying to support the development of countries like Brazil through things like the Belt and Road Initiative. It’s just a logical process.

According to him, people getting together like Lula going to Beijing are the good signs of our times. In this vein, Hammond pointed to the China-USA relationship, which, he said, the PRC is very frustrated with.

The expert also commented on the developments in early February, when US Secretary of State Antony Blinken postponed his visit to China over the suspected Chinese balloon in American airspace.

Hammond said he thinks it’s entirely legitimate for China to keep people like Blinken a little bit at arm’s length. When Blinken has gotten together with Chinese leaders and officials in the past, all he’s done is basically berate them, tell them to get with the American program and kind of try to throw his weight around.

So who wants that? Why do you want this guy in the room when you have this ongoing process of building more creative or mutually beneficial relationships with countries where the vast majority of people in the world live? the professor concluded.
