US-China talks: Two superpowers of the world meet in Malta, US tells China about Taiwan

Us President Joe Biden’s National Security Advisor (NSA) Jake Sullivan met Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Malta. The two leaders discussed the importance of peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait.

The leaders of the world’s two largest superpowers met in Malta on September 16-17. The two countries are constantly engaged in improving strained relations through dialogue. The White House said on Sunday that the purpose of this meeting is to maintain a responsible relationship in the face of strained relations and suspicion between the rival countries.

There was a 12-hour discussion between the two leaders.

The White House said Sullivan and Wang had a frank, substantive, and constructive discussion as the world’s two largest economies try to maintain dialogue. Sullivan and Wang had last held talks in Vienna in May. The two officers spent about 12 hours together over two days in Malta.

Sullivan and Wang discussed relations between the two countries, global and regional security issues, Russia’s war in Ukraine and the Taiwan Strait, the White House said.

Biden met Kyung at the G-20

Earlier, US President Biden spoke to Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in India recently. Biden said at the time that he discussed stability with Lee and that it was not confrontational at all.

Biden has worked on strengthening ties with Japan, South Korea, India, Vietnam and others to balance China’s influence in the Pacific. He said in Vietnam’s capital Hanoi last Sunday that this partnership is not about cold war with China. “It’s not about containing China, it’s about getting a stable foundation for global economic growth,” Biden had said. Yet this partnership is fraught with competitive pressures.

Ongoing tension between China and the US

The Biden administration shot down a Chinese balloon that entered the American continent earlier this year. After this, the Chinese government hacked the email of US Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo. At the same time, the US administration has banned the export of advanced computer chips to China.
