China is using all their resources to wage a real cold war against the US. Michael Collins, deputy assistant director of the CIA’s East Asia mission center, said at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado, as AP reports. 

"I would argue ... that what they’re waging against us is fundamentally a cold war...," he said.

According to him, the rising of tension between the USA and China goes beyond dispute only in trade area. Accordingly, the CIA representative expressed his concern about China’s effort aimed at business surveillance, stealing in the high technology area, strengthening of military outposts in the zones, where the US helps their alliances to maintain the regional security. 

“I would argue that it’s the Crimea of the East,” Collins said, referring to Russia’s brash annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula, which was condemned throughout the West. 

As the outlet notes, the alarm bells are ringing at the time when Washington needs China’s help in ending its nuclear standoff with North Korea.
