US, China wrap up two-day talks

US, China wrap up two-day talks”

The tense and unusual diplomatic clash Thursday between senior United States and Chinese officials signals a tough road ahead as the world's two largest economies maneuver a relationship that is not going to improve easily or quickly, analysts said, and instead, may only get harder to navigate.

The US side will "discuss our deep concerns with actions by China, including Xinjiang", where Washington has accused Beijing of "genocide" against Uyghur Muslims, Blinken said.

As the press was set to leave the room, Blinken told them to stay, firing back in brief remarks about the United States and its allies and partners' "deep concern" about Chinese actions and defending the U.S.as a nation that confronts its "challenges openly, publicly, transparently". "That's why they're not merely internal matters, and why we feel an obligation to raise these issues here today".

"The US should meet China halfway and conduct the dialogue in a honest and constructive manner", Zhao said.

Foreign financial institutions that deal with the 24 officials would be subject to U.S. sanctions, the State Department said.

Yang responded angrily by demanding the USA stop pushing its own version of democracy at a time when the United States itself has been roiled by domestic discontent.

The Chinese delegation also accused the US of provoking confrontation with China for "no reason", despite proven instances of malign activities by Beijing.

"There is no way to strangle China", he said.

The United States would continue with its meeting as planned, the official said, adding that "exaggerated diplomatic presentations often are aimed at a domestic audience".

"Well, I think we thought too well of the United States, we thought that the USA side would follow the necessary diplomatic protocols", he said.

"I'm hearing deep satisfaction that the United States is back, that we're re-engaged", Blinken retorted.

"China has no room for compromise on issues concerning its sovereignty, security and core interests", spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters.

China's Ambassador to the U.S. Cui Tiankai similarly called for cooperation during his own briefing Wednesday, saying, "I hope that it will become a beginning and that the two sides will start a candid, constructive and rational process of dialogue and communication. that the two sides will come with good will and leave with better mutual understanding". The meet-up is expected to last two days. Almost half of Americans say China is their country's greatest enemy, according to the Pew Research Center, a figure that has doubled in the a year ago.

"China is firmly opposed to U.S. interference in China's internal affairs".

The Chinese Communist Party's top diplomat has threatened "firm actions" against "US interference" and called for an end to the "Cold War mentality" stunting the rivals' relationship.

While Biden's two-month old administration is still conducting China policy reviews, Yang and Wang by contrast are veteran diplomats with decades of combined experience handling U.S.

Trump had taken pride in forging what he saw as a strong relationship with Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

Mr Yang questioned Mr Blinken on Thursday about whether the sanctions were announced ahead of the meeting on objective.
