The influence of U.S.-China relations on the current geopolitical situation
The complex interaction between the USA and China, which has developed into a real confrontation, greatly affects global politics and economics, significantly influencing the geopolitical situation. The political behaviour of most countries, delicate geopolitical balance, and the solution to global problems are now directly dependent on changes in U.S.-China relations. The study aims to determine the consequences of U.S.-China relations for global politics. The methodology of the study involved using a comparison method, graphical analysis of the characteristics of the role of the U.S. and China for the respective countries (adversary, rival, ally, partner), prognostic method and content analysis of German political declarative documents. Establishing optimal U.S.-China relations would help solve the problems of global recession, mass migration, environmental issues, Russian military aggression in Ukraine, and food security. The article reveals the pragmatic approaches of most countries to the competition between the U.S. and China. Identifying the critical goals of U.S. and China relations will help establish possible prospects for cooperation or increased conflict due to changes in the geopolitical situation. The study proves the need to develop and implement strategies to support stability, find standard solutions to global problems, and cooperate between the U.S. and China.
