Beijing said on Sunday that the United States is deploying domestic and external resources to unscrupulously contain and suppress China despite its claims that it doesn't seek to block China from its role as a major power, nor to stop it from developing its economy.

This is one of the reality checks issued by the Foreign Ministry that comes in response to a series of falsehoods made by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken in his recent speech delivered at Asia Society.

"With carefully calibrated language, he sought to promote the 'China threat' narrative, interfere in China's internal affairs, and smear China's domestic and foreign policy, all in an attempt at full-blown containment and suppression of China," said the document named "Reality Check: Falsehoods in US Perceptions of China".

The document refuted a total of 21 US falsehoods with detailed facts and figures "to show to the world how deceptive, hypocritical and dangerous the US's China policy is".

It said that as China-US relations have reached an important crossroads, the US should stop viewing this relationship through a Cold War, zero-sum mindset and reflect in its action the five assurances it has made to China.

In a virtual summit with President Xi Jinping in November, US President Joe Biden said that the US does not seek a new Cold War with China, the US does not seek to change China's system, the revitalization of US alliances is not against China, the US does not support "Taiwan independence", and the US is not looking for conflict with China.

However, the document noted that the US has acted faithlessly, kept backing away from its own commitments and the consensus it reached with China, and attempted to weaken and undermine the one-China principle and use Taiwan to contain China.

This is a major threat to peace and stability across the Taiwan Straits, it said.

To date, the total volume of US arms sales to Taiwan has exceeded $70 billion and since 2021, the US leader has stated publicly on three occasions that the US would help defend Taiwan in case of a war in the Taiwan Straits, according to the Foreign Ministry.

The document said that the US has a record of grossly interfering in China's domestic affairs on issues concerning China's core interests, including Taiwan, Xinjiang, Tibet and Hong Kong.

"It seeks to undermine China's security and stability by, both overtly and covertly, condoning and supporting separatist activities," it said.
