China is gathering America’s strongest adversaries as it looks to strengthen its military and diplomatic ties.
On Friday, China’s top diplomats affirmed the country’s commitment to strengthen its strategic partnership with Iran in a phone call with Iranian officials. The CCP vowed to help Iran combat issues including unilateral bullying, defending international fairness and justice and helping Iran achieve its nuclear ambitions.
In the phone conversation with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said no matter how the international and regional situation changes, China would make efforts for greater development of the China-Iran comprehensive strategic partnership.
In addition, China has been running joint military drills with Russia as the two countries attempt to challenge American hegemony. This comes as China is planning to develop its military in hopes to have the strongest global force by 2049.
