US-China conflict not inevitable: Rice

  • A conflict between the US and China is not inevitable, a top American foreign policy official has said. The US-China relationship is not a zero-sum game as Washington is "steadily and methodically expanding the breadth and depth of cooperation with China", Xinhua quoted Susan Rice. "We reject reductive reasoning that says conflict between the US and China is inevitable even as we have been tough with China where we disagree," said Rice, US President Barack Obama's National Security Advisor.
