The United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) announced that it has established s new “China Mission Center.”
The CIA said the China Mission Center was created “to confront the worldwide challenge posed by the People’s Republic of China.”
CIA Director William Burns said that the China Mission Center is the most significant global challenge they confront in the 21st century, an increasingly antagonistic Chinese government.
“[It] will further strengthen our collective work on the most important geopolitical threat we face in the 21st century, an increasingly adversarial Chinese government,” Burns said.
The Transnational and Technology Mission Center will address global challenges such as climate change and global health.
“Throughout our history, CIA has stepped up to meet whatever challenges come our way,” Burns said.
“Now facing our toughest geopolitical test in a new era of great power rivalry, CIA will be at the forefront of this effort,” he added.
