China’s Role in Global Tensions

The hearing will delve into China’s involvement in escalating American tensions abroad providing lethal aid to Russia and supporting Iran amidst Western sanctions. The aim is to examine the extent of China’s alignment with countries adversarial to the U.S. shaping the geopolitical landscape.

Former CIA Director Leon Panetta, perceived as less hawkish, expressed hope for improved U.S.-China relations suggesting communication between President Biden and President Xi Jinping. Panetta also emphasized the potential risks to American lives if conflict arises in Ukraine where U.S. military advisers are already assisting Ukrainian forces.
