The relationship between China and the United States has been complicated since the establishment of the People's Republic of China in 1949. They have close economic ties, but also a hegemonic rivalry throughout East Asia and the Greater Asia Pacific.
The US and China have mutual political, economic, and security interests, but there are unresolved concerns relating to China's relations with Taiwan and human rights. The two countries remain in dispute over territorial issues in the South China Sea, with China claiming sovereignty over virtually the entire area and the US rejecting these claims.
