Talks between US and China worsen

During the high-level talks in Alaska, the United States and China engaged in a verbal war.

On the US side, negotiations featured Secretary of State Antony Blinken and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan. On the other hand, Yang Jiechi, China’s highest foreign policy official, and foreign minister Wang Yi were on the other side.

According to reports, Chinese officials have accused the US of inciting countries to “raid China,” while the US has said that China “arrived bent on grandstanding.”

In his opening statement, Mr. Blinken claimed that the US will “discuss our deep concerns with China’s conduct, including in Xinjiang, Hong Kong, Taiwan, cyber attacks on the US, and economic coercion on our allies.”

Mr. Yang of China, on the other hand, accused the US of oppressing other countries by military and financial control.

He said, “It violates so-called national security notions to hinder regular trade transactions and provoke certain countries to strike China.”

When it was first announced that top US and Chinese officials would meet in Alaska this week, there was some hope that it would signal the beginning of a new friendship between the two nations, after an almost complete collapse during President Donald Trump’s final year in office.

China’s foreign minister, Wang Yi, who is attending the Alaska summit, said last month that “in the past few years, China-US relations deviated from the usual course, and ran into the biggest difficulties since the establishment of diplomatic links,” following a call between President Joe Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping.
