The Director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, William J. Burns, announced today the creation of the China Mission Center to "meet the global challenge posed" to Washington by the Asian country.

Burns stressed that it is not the Chinese people, but the Chinese authorities, who pose the threat and said the new center "will provide an agency-wide response and unify the exceptional work the CIA is already doing against its key rival," according to a statement.

"CMC [China Mission Center] will further strengthen our collective work on the most important geopolitical threat we face in the 21st century, the increasingly hostile Chinese government," he said.

In late July, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Xie Feng lamented that relations between Beijing and Washington are "at an impasse" and accused the U.S. of wanting to turn China into an "imaginary enemy" to divert attention from its own domestic problems and stifle the Asian country.
