AAmid rising tensions in US-China relations, President Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser, Jack Sullivan, And Yang Jiechi, Beijing’s top foreign politician, met for a meeting in Zurich on Wednesday. The White House said the meeting was to continue Biden’s phone calls with President Xi Jinping in early September to seek responsible competition between the two countries. In the first phone conversation in seven months, the two leaders stressed the need to ensure that competition does not lead to conflict.
After the meeting in Zurich, Sullivan announced that he had raised several concerns for Washington. These include human rights, Xinjiang, Hong Kong and Taiwan and the situation in the South China Sea. Sullivan made it clear that Washington would continue to invest in its “national strength” and work closely with its allies, but would negotiate with China to ensure responsible competition.
“Provocative military operations”
Most recently, the Chinese military has repeatedly challenged Taiwan’s air defense by allowing aircraft to infiltrate Taiwan’s air defense identification zone. Washington immediately condemned Beijing’s “provocative military action.”
Prior to the meeting, Chinese officials spoke to the South China Morning Post Yang Jiechi And Jake Sullivan to open communication channels and discuss the meeting between G and Joe Biden. Contrary to what was apparently originally planned, this will not happen at the G20 summit in Rome. Xi Jinping will only participate through video conversion. The meeting between Chinese Foreign Ministry Yang and Sullivan was arranged during a phone call between Ji and Biden in September.
Unlike the first meeting in Alaska in March, the two foreign politicians were not interested in a public confrontation this time. At the time, Yang had verbally stated that it was not the United States that China was talking to from a strong position with China. This time, Beijing decided to use a cautious tone.
Published by Meng Wanhouse
The state media emphasized that China had recently achieved a critical point in its relationship with the United States. The U.S. Justice Department had submitted a motion to Canada to extradite the Hawaii manager Meng Wancho Abandoned, she was then able to return to China after three years of house arrest. Meng Wanzhou’s release is part of a list of demands made by China’s Deputy Foreign Minister Wendy Sherman.
What was not mentioned in Beijing was that Meng admitted in writing that he had given false information about his company’s Iranian business. The state media also sought to see the meeting in Zurich as evidence that China is fulfilling its responsibilities as a major power.
