China urges Biden to seek Beijing's help for COVID-19, economy

Communist Party newspaper 'Global Times' sees Joe Biden 's election as an opportunity to normalize U.S.- China relations and has sent positive signals about the former vice president's cabinet picks.

Global Timeswrote, lamenting American time and lives lost to COVID-19 due to Washington's failure to work with Beijing.It called on the president-elect to seek China's advice in containing the virus, and make use of the country's vast manufacturing sector in order to store and distribute the upcoming American-made vaccines.

"It is imperative to reinstall an effective federal leadership in the U.S. that knows how to cope with a severe crisis of this magnitude," the paper wrote, almost echoing the former vice president's campaign trail promise. The editorial even had time to defend the integrity of Dr. Anthony Fauci from"ultra-rightists."

"The beauty or irreplaceability of China lies in this country's huge market scale," the Chinese Communist Party publication said. U.S. firms"know perfectly well they could not find another giant and growing market like China's," it added.

Old facesWhile it remains to be seen whether Beijing's attempts to bring Biden onside will be successful, analysts from within and without China are expecting a more multilateral approach to international relations from the president-elect, especially on global issues such as climate change and nuclear disarmament.

OMG. This was expected. But not so soon. And he has not even taken up the office. What's more in store? No they're one who caused thos whole mess dont take advice from the enemy Nope. Biden follow Trump on China trade issues with the European/Asian allies. China 🇨🇳 is a threat to US I would urge JoeBiden to have a mental health evaluation. His handlers can hide this only so long. He found his cookie in his pocket so he is restless.

Interesting. Working together with other world powers to solve a global pandemic is not a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of strength. It’s what we’ve been doing for centuries...collaboration and leadership is a truly American virtue. 🙄🙄 This is typical Western media ignorance and sensationalism. An editorial by the Global Times is interpreted as “China”. That is why sometimes when I sent a casual tweet, some Western media and politicians would do the same. “China”. China has 1.4 billion people.

Danger ahead ! A virus is a natural occurrence or an 'act of God...' of a well known and familiar variety. The Chinese are no more to blame for COVID-19 than Caucasians are for all the Native Americans who perished from our germs. America and China have a vital symbiosis we must preserve No, I would pass.

Of course they do!!!! Is something up? I don’t think so
