China poses the most significant challenge "of any nation-state to the United States", said Anthony Blinken, President-elect Joe Biden's nominee for Secretary of State, adding that the means of confronting Beijing are "fully within our control".

At his nomination confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday, Blinken said both confrontation and competition with China need to be approached from "a position of strength, not a position of weakness."

Although Blinken acknowledged US President Donald Trump was "right in taking a tougher approach to China," he stressed that he "very much" disagreed with the manner in which the President went about the matter.
