Senator Rounds discuss U.S. relations with China

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)- Trying to contain China’s rising global ambitions and staying on good trade terms will be difficult.

South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds says the US doesn’t want a military confrontation.

Rounds says China is extending their influence in a critical part of the Pacific.

China is a big buyer of South Dakota and US ag products.

Rounds says that will take continuing negotiations.

The President of Taiwan is visiting the US now, adding to the tensions with China.
