Can China Really Build a New World Order?

 The Diplomat published on 28 September 2023 a commentary titled "Can China Really Build a New World Order?" by Nicholas Bequelin, Yale Law School's Paul Tsai Center on China.  

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken commented that "China is the only country with both the intent to reshape the international order and the power to do it."  The author concludes that Chinese diplomacy is riven by contradictions, incoherence, and confusion.  Disorder rather than a new Chinese world order is the most likely outcome of current Chinese foreign policy.
