US, China pledge to stabilise tense relations

The US and China have pledged to stabilise their tense relationship following US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s two-day visit to Beijing. Blinken met China’s President Xi Jinping for talks on Monday, restarting high-level communications between the rival super- powers.

Xi said they had made progress, while Blinken indicated that both sides were open to further talks, reports the BBC. But the top US diplomat made clear that there remained major differences. Relations between Beijing and Washington have plummeted in the wake of a Trump- era trade war, Beijing’s assertive claims over Taiwan and the shooting down of an alleged Chinese spy balloon over the US earlier this year.
