This article attempts to approach Sino-US relations from a Chinese foreign policy perspective. I will first discuss one of the main sources of Chinese assertiveness in its current foreign policy strategy and the implications for its behavior. Next, I will elaborate on the latest diplomatic tensions between China and US, the role of Hong Kong as the main theater of the new Cold War, and how COV- ID-19 could be a game-changer for Chinese ascendance and US declinism. I will conclude by suggesting strategies China could adopt in times of a global COVID-19 outbreak and the possible “decoupling” of Sino-US relations.
