"All the major powers in the world have a duty, in my view, to carefully manage their relationships so they do not tip from responsible competition to conflict," he said. "The US will compete and will compete vigorously, and lead with our values and our strength to stand up for our allies and our friends, and oppose attempts by stronger countries dominating weaker ones, whether through changes to territory by force, economic coercion, technical exploitation or disinformation."
