In these unprecedented and unpredictable times, the ongoing tensions between Washington and Beijing have had an impact on the European Union's relations with China.

The United States has been putting more and more pressure on its allies and friendly countries in the region to join its tug of war against China, which the US administration sees as "a fight with a really different civilization and a different ideology"-as argued in 2019 by the former director of policy planning at the State Department, Kiron Skinner.

With the numerous trips made by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to European countries clearly aimed at forming a broad anti-China coalition around the world, China is worried that it would be forced on the back foot in Europe and therefore is trying to manage the US-inflicted crisis in its relations with Brussels.
