Chinese and U.S. officials are all set to meet in Alaska on March 18. This will be the first time both countries will engage in person since President Joe Biden took over.
“U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken tweeted and said, “I will meet on March 18 with People’s Republic of China Director Yang Jiechi and State Councilor Wang Yi in Alaska to engage on a range of issues, including those where we have deep disagreements.”
The meeting with the Chinese officials will take place after Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin visit Japan and South Korea next week. The objective of this meeting is to show Biden’s emphasis on the allies around the globe.
According to a department statement from spokesperson Ned Price, U.S. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan is also expected to meet the two Chinese officials and discuss many issues with them.
