President Joe Biden said Friday that the U.S. and its international partners must hold China to account for its economic practices.
“We have to push back against the Chinese government’s abuses and coercion that undercut the foundations of the international economic system,” Biden said in a speech to the Munich Security Conference, delivered virtually from the White House.
“Everyone must play by the same rules,” he said at the annual international policy gathering.
Biden’s appearance, his debut before an international audience since becoming president, came as his administration seeks to maintain a tough stance on China while moving away from former President Donald Trump’s pugilistic relationship with Beijing.
