Kurt Campbell, former Assistant Secretary of State for East Asia and Pacific Affairs (64, photo), appointed to the Indo-Pacific Coordinator of the White House National Security Council (NSC), argued for the US siege strategy to contain China’s injuries. The expansion of’Quad’ was discussed.
Former Vice Minister Campbell said in a joint contribution’How the United States Can Strengthen Asian Order’, published in the foreign affairs journal Foreign Affairs on the 12th (local time), “The United States will focus on individual issues instead of forming a huge coalition focusing on all issues. We must pursue a focused coalition.” In issues such as’trade, technology, supply chain, and standards’, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson cited’D10′ (Democracy 10), which raised the need for cooperation in response to China in the 5G field in May last year. ‘D10’ is 10 countries in which Australia, India and Korea are added to the major 7 countries (G7).
He suggested that such an alliance would drive the’post-China’ of regional economies. “We have to reassure countries in the region that they can still create new growth opportunities if they move out of the Chinese supply chain and move to other regional economies.”
“We will be able to focus on military deterrence through the expansion of the so-called quads such as the US, Japan, Australia, and India,” said former Assistant Secretary Campbell. “The US should design penalties when China threatens order. A strong coalition of partners is needed.” The Indo-Pacific Coordinator, appointed by former Vice Minister Campbell, is called the’Asian tsar’ as Joe Biden, who is inaugurated on the 20th, oversees the Asian policy of the US administration.
