Top US and Chinese Diplomats Hold ‘Frank and Open Discussion’

Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman met with China’s top diplomats on Monday in the Chinese city of Tianjin and held what the State Department called a “frank and open discussion.”

The meeting came amid heightened tensions between Washington and Beijing and marked the first high-level meeting since Secretary of State Antony Blinken met with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Alaska in March. Sherman met with Wang and Vice Foreign Minister Xie Feng.

The State Department said Sherman “raised concerns” with her Chinese counterparts over Hong Kong, Xinjiang, Tibet, Taiwan, the South and East China Seas, and more areas. The Biden administration has taken a hawkish approach to China on these issues and slapped Hong Kong-related sanctions on Chinese officials ahead of the talks.
